Happy Monday crafty friends! What a strange weather pattern on the eastern seaboard! We are getting unprecedented wind and rain today, fall has finally arrived.
I made my first purchase from a Canadian company called Studio Katia, I recently discovered this company through Amy R and her YouTube channel. So happy I did, the products are wonderful and I do love supporting fellow Canadians!
This is a special card as it is my favourite aunts Christmas card for this year, she loves red and poinsettia's. This is called the Merry Poinsettia stamp set by Studio Katia. I started by stamping my images with my Misti on Bristol card stock with embossing ink and set them with gold embossing powder to use my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers. I wanted a one-layer but as I went in to add darker colour for contrast the side of my hand smeared some of the red all over the panel! lol
So I fussy cut the poinsettia's and used a Neena 80lbs piece to glue them on. I then added some Liquid Pearls on the poinsettia and the berries. Put that to the side to dry so that I wouldn't get my wrist in there again!
My aunt is unilingual francophone so I die cut the Joyeuses Fêtes from Tonic gold mirror card stock with fun foam and StickIt. Once everything was dry, I placed my sentiment on the card and added some Christmas mix sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.
Thanks for taking the time!
