Christmas in July – Team Stamp It Blog Hop

header

Hello there and welcome back for the Stamp It Group’s blog hop ~ Christmas in July!

I’m going confess that although I bought the Reason for the Season Stamp Set and Festive Flower Builder Punch when the 2015 Holiday Catalog was first released as a bundled item, this is the first time I’ve used it.  I have no idea why, but I’m so glad that I finally got around to it.  I absolutely love it!  I had so much fun making this Poinsettia Christmas card that I also made one to be the focal point of a little treat box and the results are stunning.

Since the poinsettia is a traditional symbol of Christmas and the Reason for the Season Stamp Set also has a very traditional “feel” to it, my idea was to stay true to that style.

I finished off the inside of the card with a  stamped poinsettia.

The DSP belly band on the Clear Tiny Box measures 1″ x 9″.

This stamp set works with the the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  Since the punch is a builder punch, some times it can be challenging to use a punch like that.  Here are some step by step photos of how to put one together.

Begin by stamping Cherry Cobbler ink onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock for 8 of the large petals, 4 medium, and 2 double petals.  Then use Garden Green ink onto Garden Green cardstock for 3 of the large petals.  To add some dimension to the petals, hold in half and then unfold to build your poinsettia’s.

I found it helpful to adhere the petals to a “base” and used a 1″ Circle Punch and added some Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the center.

109

You will begin building the 8 petals first by laying them across from each other as seen in the photo below.  Then add more Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the next layer.

For this layer, you will off center the petals as seen in the photo below.  Set aside for now.

113

Again, I used a 1″ Circle Punch as my base and following the same steps as above for the 4 medium petals.

114

Add some Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the center of the petals so you can adhere the 2 double petals.

116

Now take the 8 petal piece that you set aside earlier and add more Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the smaller petal base.  Please note that, I used a Stampin’ Dimensional in this step for my poinsettia on the card to give more dimension.

118

Flip the poinsettia over and add a dab of Multipurpose Liquid Glue where you want to place the leaves.

To finish off your poinsettia’s, add either some pearls or the Crushed Curry cardstock “center’s” like I did on mine.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will continue the rest of the way around our hop!
