STAMPlorations Christmas Release - Day 3


Helloooo!  We're back with Day 3 of the Christmas Release mini hop, and today we're looking at my final set, Layered Poinsettias.


So we've got a full bloom, a side bloom and two leaves, all in solid and line images and a couple of dot clusters to use as the centres, along with a few words.  Don't forget, the images won't align properly, because they're not meant to.  We're being artsy here ;)

I think poinsettias are stunning in the coral and cream colours, as well as the vibrant reds, so I've started with coral.  I cut out the stamped images and mounted them onto a sloshed background.


After I'd stamped the images on this card I painted in the background colour, adding depth near the flowers, then I masked the flowers and stamped the words in Old Paper for a subtle background.


How about a clean and graphic style?


On this one I stamped the outline images in complementary colours rather than black, and stamped the stamens in yellow.  Added a bit of torn Washi tape to finish.


Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the other designers have created, and don't forget to leave a comment on each designer's blog and the STAMPlorations blog every day for maximum chances of winning a $25 gift certificate to the store.

See you tomorrow when we're playing with Shery's CUTplorations dies!

  5. Definitely deliciously artsy, Shirley ... and fabulous, all of them! I admire enormously the artsy style, though sadly don't possess even a small artsy bone in my body, so I appreciate seeing how your designs can be used for cool and graphic cards too! Yum! Hugs, Anita :)
