Poinsettia Greetings, PP319

Hi friends! My sweet and talented friend LeAnne is hostess this week at The Paper Players, and she has a fun holiday themed Tic-Tac-Toe board for us to play along with. I was very excited when I saw it because I'm looking forward to getting started on some holiday cards. I went across the top row: Red, Glitter and Snowflakes. 

Recently at the Mama Elephant show I purchased this Poinsettia stamp set and matching dies, and have anxiously been waiting for an opportunity to ink them up. Now that I have, I love them. But what did I expect, they are Christmas themed and a floral at the same time. My red element is obvi the poinsettias, the glitter is in my glitter paper, and the snowflakes though subtle are in the patterned paper. I really like the way this card came out, perhaps too much to give away! Do any of you have a stash of cards you won't part with? Ask LeAnne, I have a lot :)

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Poinsettia, Jingle Greetings (Mama Elephant)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Crumb Cake, Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Glistening (Authentique)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Poinsettia Dies (Mama Elephant)
Accessories: Gold Glimmer Paper (Stampin' Up), Gold Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh)

So glad you stopped by today! I'd love it if you left a comment, then please check out the creations by the rest of our Design Team at The Paper Players. We'd love for you to play along, too! 

Inky hugs :)

Gorgeous with a capital G Sandy - those flowers are a real wow and looked great paired with the subtle snowflake paper and added strip of glimmer. I too loved my card this week I don't think I can send it to anyone but me - so glad I'm not the only one with this problem :-)

LOL!!! I just went through all my cards and I have a lot too! Hopefully I can sell some at a craft show! Anyway, this is just delightful! I think this is such a pretty poinsettia and I love the snowflake background you chose! Just divine!

Gorgeous card. Love the pretty poinsettias. Yes, I have a lot of cards that it is hard to part with, but eventually I do, or make duplicates. :)

Sandy, this is really beautiful. I love the gold glitter paper added down the side too, it really makes the poinsettia's pop!

Sandy, I love the touch of glitter paper - I never remember to do that - but it is perfect with the Poinsettia. You colored those beautifully, too. beautiful card.

So, so, so Pretty, Sandy! The glimmer paper under the focal image combined with the sequin is yummy. And, so is the coloring on these pretty flowers.
