SUO85 Peace On Earth- Purple Poinsettia :-)
It’s time for the new SUO85 SU-Only Challenge and the theme is “Non-Traditional Christmas”. I chose purple and black since my husband loves the Ravens football team along with My Digital Studio (MDS) to create this Peace on Earth card :-)
Again, I do hope you will find some time during this busy holiday season to check out the SU-Only Challenge site and the rest of the Design Team’s creations- a wonderful selection of non-traditional colors indeed!!
Using My Digital Studio (MDS) position the various stamp images onto the 8.5x11 blank page- Post Card, the poinsettia from Joyful Christmas, the sentiment from Greetings of the Season, an outline snowflake behind the sentiment from Old St. Nick, the stamp image from Old St. Nick and the “Do not open until Dec. 25th” image from Winter Post.
Print onto Whisper White cardstock- color the poinsettia using the AquaPainter™ using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker to add the shadows. Hand cut out the flower, add the Frost White Shimmer paint with the AquaPainter™ and add more details with the Chalk Marker (the flower is all one layer but the leaves are individual pieces).
Use the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker to color the leaves along with the Frost White Shimmer paint with the AquaPainter™ and add more details with the Chalk Marker as well.
Trim around the Post Card image and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. Lightly sponge Smoky Slate Classic Ink over the edges and background.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock- adhere to the Whisper White card base.
Add the Post Card panel at an angle and adhere the poinsettia with the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Punch the sentiment out using the XL Oval Punch and also punch out two additional ovals from Basic Black cardstock (adhere the two black ovals together to create the frame for the sentiment). Add the sentiment to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the Pearls along with the 5/8” Basic Black double satin ribbon bow.
Add the Elegant Eggplant accents to the Postage Stamp and “Do not open” images as well as a bit of Frost White Shimmer Paint. Punch out the postage stamp image using the Postage Stamp Punch and hand cut the “Do not open” image.
Adhere the Postage Stamp image to the upper portion of the Post Card and add the “Do not open” image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and Pearls to the center of the poinsettia to finish off the card.
