Neon Poinsettias

Where did the summer go? Kids are back in school, with all the insanity that goes with it, vacations are a not-so-distant memory, and it is once again time to get busy with the important things in life...crafting for the holidays! Yay! All of September the Dream Team will be featuring all the new goodies we have for the "Most wonderful time of the year", the fall and winter holiday season. New stencil designs, new dies, and...brand new embossing folders featuring some of our top-selling designs, all to be found on-line through the Stencil with Style web-site, or your local papercrafting store.
Here's my holiday inspiration for this week:

I used the brand new Tall Poinsettia stencil (LL 3046), as well as the sentiment portion of Season's Greetings (LG 677). For the Poinsettia, I used white embossing paste on my black cardstock. After it dried, I used several colors of the totally rad Radiant Neon ink pads from Imagine Crafts, which were applied with daubers. I hope you can see the subtle color changes and shading that I did.

It was quite fun to work with such non-traditional colors for this card. I applied the sentiment in much the same way, but I masked off the holly leaves and berries. And I just used black ink for it. Simple and FUN for the holidays!

Please check out the rest of the team that is posting this week. Thanks for stopping b. Have an inspiring day!

Beautiful Alison! I love the color variation in the poinsetta, the scallop border and vertical sentiment. A gorgeous creation!

This is beautiful! Great pop off of the black. Was that textured cardstock? It almost looked fuzzy...
