JUGS317 One Layer Poinsettia Christmas

Hi Friends!!

It’s time for the new Just Us Girls #317 “One Layer” Challenge and I decided to create a quick Christmas card using Heat Embossing along with Watercolor.

This is my last challenge as a Guest Designer for October and I have truly loved designing with these talented ladies :-)

I hope you will have a chance to check out the rest of the fabulous Just Us Girls Design Teamprojects, pull out your supplies and join in on the fun!   

It was a bit difficult to photograph this card since the panel seems
to warp a bit with the watercoloring but it is flatter IRL :-)
To create this card:

Score a 4.25” x 11” piece of Naturals White cardstock and de-static the front panel using the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the poinsettia and leaf images from the retired set, Joyful Christmas using Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Color using an AquaPainter™ with Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Classic Ink.  Add additional color using the same colors in Stampin’ Write Markers- spritz with water and allow the colors to run a bit.

Carefully dry the panel with the Heat Tool and once dried, use the Daffodil Delight  Stampin’ Write markers to color the center.

Here is a straight frontal view- again the curve of the lens seems
to accentuate the paper curve from the watercoloring :-)
Stamp the sentiment from the retired set, Christmas Blessings using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and add splatters using Gorgeous Grunge with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink as well.

Quick and easy- perfect for Christmas!

Stamp Sets:  Joyful Christmas, Christmas Blessings (both retired Stampin’ Up!)

Ink: Versamark™, Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow; Stampin’ Write Markers- Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight

Paper: Naturals White

Accessories: Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, AquaPainter™

Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have a wonderful week and come play along with us at Just Us Girls!
