Flowers for StampTV

It has been forever since I have played at Stamp TV......and that is not much of an exaggeration, but I wanted to support my friend Linda who is hosting the Free for All-Flowers challenge this week. I hope you will join in as well.

I decided to make another Christmas card for my list, I really hope to be well ahead before time to send them out. I used 3 different sets from Gina K Designs to create my card, I love all three of these sets and use them often to create my holiday items. The sentiments and the background stamp come from "blessed is the season" and "Very Merry Christmas" with the beautiful poinsettia a part of the fabulous set "A Year of Flowers".

Ever start on a card and it just seems to lead the way without any plan on your part, this is one of those.
I knew I wanted to use the poinsettia and maybe stamp it several times, so I stamped once on the card stock and once on another piece of paper to use as a mask. Then I stamped two more flowers and the was then that I decided to cut away part of the card....deciding that I like this, I knew I needed more depth and dimension to the flowers so I stamped and hand cut some to mount with foam tape. Then it was just a matter of adding the pieces after coloring all of the flowers and adding the background Christmas script stamp. The shadows around the flowers and sponging are one of my favorite parts.

For the inside I stamped part of the poinsettia on the Labels 18 die adding a handmade banner with the sentiment.
