Let's explore and dive in!

11-09-2021-WinterFoliage Embossing Folder-Dry Brush Poinsettia Stamp-Poinsettia 3D Die SEtMy first projects features Winter Foliage 3D Embossing Folder and Poinsettia 3 D Die Set. Once I dry-embossed the cardstock, I applied Green Valley Oval Ink Set  with a Gel Plate and Detailed Blending Brushes.

11-09-2021-WinterFoliage Embossing Folder-Dry Brush Poinsettia Stamp-Poinsettia 3D Die SEt-003The poinsettia was sprayed with Altenew Sparkling Ruby Ink Spray Bundle. Next comes the WOW factor…. Before I assembled the card, I applied the Gold Foil 0.2 Washi Tape across the Winter Foliage 3D Embossing Folder.

11-09-2021-WinterFoliage Embossing Folder-Dry Brush Poinsettia Stamp-Poinsettia 3D Die SEt-001“Tis the Season” from Dry Brush Poinsettia Stamp Set was stamped in Obsidian Pigment Ink. My next card is a fresh take with nontraditional colors for the holiday-themed designs.

11-09-2021-Concret Wall Washi Tape-Angled Mosaic EF-Navy Gold Trim Washi-Gold Trim Washi Tape

I started out with applying Concrete Wall Washi Tape onto a piece of Classic Solar White Cardstock. I then dry-embossed it with Angled Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder. The instant textures and shine will make any papercrafters happy!

Simple apply Navy Gold Trim Washi Tape to thin cardstock and cut it out. Use the Precision 2 in 1 Glue Pen and start folding. You now have created a bow! The sentiment and poinsettia were stamped with Dry Brush Poinsettia Stamp Set.

Love that navy bow. Inspiring use of nontraditional colors for holidays, very distinctive. But I must be a traditionalist because the embossed green tree and die cut poinsettia speak to me most!
