Last minute holiday crafting with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

Today I am on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog with a pretty card which is perfect for last minute holiday crafting. I am so behind with my Christmas cards and I really needed a design which is easy to mass produce. So I came up with this:


I stamped and silver heat embossed a bunch of poinsettia images from the gorgeous Poinsettia Blooms stamp set. I used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers to add a touch of colour and used a clear shimmer pen to move it around. In this way I needed only on shade of each colour and still get the effect of a professionally coloured flower 🙂 I could also vary the colours I used, so even if the design was the same I did not get bored with it.


When they were all dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also die cut the rounded rectangle from the Frames and Flags die set from a thick white cardstock. I used the sentiments from the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set but you can easily add variation by choosing sentiments from other sets too. I silver heat embossed them on the bottom of the rectangles.



I used 3D foam squares to add the flowers, 3 on each panel. Then I added a matching thin mat and mounted it on a white card base which I previously covered with some sparkly wrapping paper. I like to recycle my wrapping papers if they are pretty!


I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Warm Winter Wishes) an Wednesday Challenge (Wrap it up).

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects and will return soon for more inspiration.

See you,
