And now I want to share with you what I made using this gorgeous Poinsettia Background stamp to make my 2 cards. I used it for a traditional Holiday card and then I used it as the background for a Thinking of You card. I love how versatile this stamp can be.

I heat embossed the image with Platinum embossing powder and then colored it with watercolor, before adding my sentiment. I used Tonic’s Honey Gold Mirror Card as background layer.

I didn’t have any gold half pearls so I just colored some with with my Y17 Copic marker.

I think this Poinsettia stamp would be really pretty to use as a background image for many different kinds of cards.

For this 2nd card, I did a light layer of distress oxide inks and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then went over the background with the distress inks one more time only with a heavier hand this time.

I added a Thinking of You sentiment from SSS and the frame is called Wonky Scalloped Frames by Avery Elle. I popped the frame up with some craft foam and added a few embellishments

That’s it for me today! Don’t forget to head to the Simon Says Stamp blog and check out all the inspiration featuring products from the Stamptember release.

  1. I love both of your cards. It is nice to see a different use on the second one. Being poinsettia doesn’t matter with the colors and message you used. Great idea. I would have saved that stamp for every Christmas.


  2. Beautiful cards Misty. I especially love the first one. I think you have “inspired” me to go for this poinsettia BG stamp sooner, rather than later. LOL
