Christmas In Full Bloom

It's Monday again and time for another MojoMonday show and tell. For this week's challenge I debated over the theme for all of 5 seconds before succumbing to making yet another Christmas card. I just needed an excuse to use this big bold poinsettia stamp:

The star of this show is from a stamp called Poinsettia Stamp n Stitch by Chocolate Baroque. Sadly this stamp has been discontinued. I think it's just lush and gorgeous! 

No patterned papers today. I stamped little stars from WMS A Cottage Christmas with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink onto vanilla CS. Other embellies: lace, ribbon, button and twine.

Here's a close-up of the poinsettia. I stamped it directly on coloured CS with Memento Tuxedo Black. Then I applied TH's distress inks.  The little black dots are the stitch points. All you have to do is poke 'em and stitch 'em.  I finished it with some yellow bling in the centre. The greeting is from WMS A Cottage Christmas, heat embossed in gold.

On the inside I stamped another little sentiment from WMS A Cottage Christmas, this time in Memento Rich Cocoa.


Join me in these fun challenges...

Thanks for stopping by today and have a a lovely day!
