Jesus is the Reason for the Season

Raise your hand if you're a fan of poinsettias at Christmas time?  Me! Me!  I love the bright red petals, huge green leaves and the festive feeling I get when I bring one home during the holidays. Mine from last year is still alive, too!  Right now it's just twigs with green leaves but I'm curious to see what it looks like later this year.  Anyone else ever have one stay alive from one year to the next?  I hope to see all those red petals again!

The Holiday Catalog will go live online on Tuesday, September 1st and when it does, you'll be able to check out this great bundle - Reason for the Season stamp set and Festive Flower Builder punch (save 15% when purchased as a bundle!).  item # 140847   $33 (USD)
The stamp set has 10 images and is photopolymer.

You can stamp the "veins" of the petals first and then punch out.  You'd never to punch several times to get all the petals and leaves to create this beautiful poinsettia on this first card.

This second card shows several other images that are included in the stamp set (red inside and black outline).

And, in this third example, my friend Lisa simply punched out the new Red Foil sheets (item # 139607  $4) using the Festive Flower Builder punch.  The background on her bag (the red striped piece) is also from a new vellum pack!  Gotta love the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum (say that ten times fast!).  The Designer Vellum (item # 139597  $11) comes with three different designs of vellum - green trees, red stripes (below) and silver snowflakes.  (3 each of 3 designs = 9 sheets total)  So pretty!

Even if you weren't a fan of poinsettias before, I hope you are now!  The projects and ideas created with the punch and set are simply stunning!

Be sure to check my Online Store on Tuesday, September 1st (after 2 am mountain time) to view the Holiday Catalog and to shop for all your Christmas and fall holiday products!  Order early for the best selection and to avoid products going on back order.

Happy stamping,
