Christmas Pionsettia Cards with Cheryl

Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl here with you today. I thought, for a change, I would create two cards using the one stamp this achieved two different results. My first card is very tradition. The second card is so far from traditional, But I thought it was worth sharing anyway.

For both cards I’ve used the Couture Creations Poinsettia Greetings set from the Stamp & Colour Outline Stamp Sets. For the first card, as you will see, I’ve coloured it using the Couture Creations Twin Tip Alcohol Markers, and for the second, I’ve used the Couture Creations Alcohol Inks. Each card has been mounted on a red card base and a mat of gold glitter card, stamping the stamp with the Black Stamp & Colour Outline Ink Pad.

You must use blending paper for alcohol markers, otherwise the colours will bleed. Likewise, you also need to use the correct ink for stamping, otherwise you will end up with the black ink (or whatever colour you use) on your markers.

If you haven’t used alcohol inks before, I suggest you check out my recent YouTube video: https://youtu.be/q9VikVcUiRI

For this card, I laid down all the alcohol inks and allowed it to dry. Then I stamped the image. I added pearls to all the places where berries were shown on the image –

NOTE : I didn’t have any red pearls, so used the red alcohol marker to colour them. (If you do this, let them dry for a few minutes so it doesn’t come off on your fingers.)

To finish each card off, I used the greeting that came with the Poinsettia Greetings stamp set. Both were heat embossed, and gold glitter card mounted behind the greeting.
