Poinsettia Petals - Stamp 'N Hop
Hello and welcome to another Stampers Showcase Blog Hop. This month I will be using Poinsettia Petals for my project.
If you are starting here with me or joining from my crafty friend Mo, welcome we have lots of lovely 3d projects to share with you this month.
I do like a wreath for Christmas don't you? I came across these lovely mdf wreaths some time ago and new that the Poinsettia Petals dies would be perfect to decorate it. I designed this project for an all day Christmas Craft session that unfortunately had to be moved online at the last minute due to changes in Government guidelines.
I was joined online by most of the ladies who would have attended the event and this wreath proved very popular. Some also made the Snowflake Wishes version.
Here is my project:
The colours I used:
4 sheets cardstock (3 Real Red, 1 Old Olive)
Gold Foil Sheets - as much as you like!
The wreath was painted with a ceramic effect paint and then inked with Old Olive ink. I then added some white dimensional paint and added lots of chunky glitter.
The die cutting:
I spent an hour in a Zoom meeting cutting out lots of flowers, leaves and sprigs. Each flower requires 3 different sizes of petals. I also cut 10 large and 10 small leaves and around 20 gold foil sprigs.
Curl and shape the petals and the leaves. Assemble the flowers using dimensionals between each layer. Make sure you offset the petals for a fuller look. I used Tombow to adhere the beaded pearls.
I attached a single flower to the wreath with a dimensional. I then used Tombow to add the leaves and sprigs, tucking underneath the petals.
Work around the wreath adding one flower at a time, filling in any gaps with extra leaves and sprigs.
Wrap lights around the wreath - this bit is fiddly bit worth the effort I think!
The finished project:
Tricky to photograph with the lights on but I confess I was quite pleased with the finished project.
I will be gifting this to my Aunty Doreen as an early Christmas gift to cheer her up. I might just have to make another for myself!
Next up is Caroline Peck from the USA - I can't wait to see her project.
