Hi all, today I am showcasing the gorgeous Poinsettia Greeting Stamp Set from the new Deck the Halls collection from Couture Creations for Christmas this year. When coloured with Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers these stamps really pop! I hope you enjoy following along as I show you how I put together this pretty little Christmas card.

To begin, I stamped the image with the new CO 728475 Stamp & Colour Outline Ink Pad Black on CO 727339 Synthetic Paper – White and coloured it in with my very first try of the new Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers and it blew me away at how easy they were to use.. Blended beautifully, no bleeding and colours complimented each other wonderfully.

Yes I know the bottom petals should be red but I really wanted to try the green markers so it is now a red and green poinsettia! I also placed some alcohol ink and blending solution on the glass mat and using a paint brush splattered it around the stamped image.

I then die cut a frame three times making the last one CO725407 Mirror Foil Board and adhered them together to give it depth. I then matted it on to a yellowish cardstock then on to red cardstock and finally on to a white base card.

I die cut a poinsettia from my stash and the wonderful Holly Sprig Mini Cutting Die to place behind it. I stamped the Seasons Greetings with the Stamp & Colour Outline Ink Pad Black straight on to the stamped image. I love the new Golden Age Alcohol Inks, here I have used the white Snow colour. I placed a few drops on the glass mat and added a few drops of blending solution to mix and again using a paint brush splattered it over the flowers. This looks AMAZING, the photo really does not do the final result justice!
