Poinsettia Pattern

Seasons Greetings! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing project with a "Merry and Bright" theme. Think lots of glitter, holiday cheer, and lots of red & green.  My card for today is pretty encrusted with the beautiful Twinkle Glitter from Stampendous. The shine in real life is holographic and beautiful! My full instructions to recreate this card is below.

DWDGWP: Glossy White Embossing Paste
DWDPK: Palette Knife
DWLM2010: Paste Spreader
DP100: Detail White Embossing Powder

MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Evergreen
DecoArt Media: Cadmium Red Hue
Imagine: VersaMark Ink, On Point Glue, Tear It Tape, Craft Mat

Directions:
1. Tape the Poinsettia Pattern Stencil to a piece of Mixed Media White Paper.

2. On a Craft Mat, scoop out a small amount Glossy White Embossing Paste and 1-2 drops of Cadmium Red Hue.

3. Using the Palette Knife, mix the paste and paint together, but not completely. Leave it marbleized.

4. Apply the tinted paste to the stencil and paper by spreading it across the top at a 45 degree angle with the Paste Spreader.

5. Remove and clean the stencil. Let paste dry and trim the image, leaving a border.

6. Create the card base out of Evergreen cardstock, cut to the size of 6 1/2" x 10."

7. Using a scrap piece of Evergreen cardstock, stamp the Christmas sentiment on the BACK of the textured cardstock using VersaMark ink.

8. Sprinkle on Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set.

9. Using the Large "H" Fitted Frame, die cut the sentiment.

10. On the stenciled layer, apply a line of On Point Glue all around the perimeter. Sprinkle with Twinkle Glitter.

11. On the card base, apply a line of Tear It Tape across the bottom of the card and across the right side.

12. Sprinkle with Twinkle Glitter.

13. Apply a line of On Point Glue around the edge of the die cut sentiment and apply Twinkle Glitter.

14. Glue all layers together.

I love that you tinted your embossing paste, and flowed it so carefully on your background, Alison - it made a beautiful texture and sheen to complement the amazing sparkle of your glitter! Beautiful sentiment, too.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
