Welcome to the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angie McKenzie from the USA.  This AMAZING group of talented, international Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators has some incredible projects for those of you who would like to learn a tip or two with some different techniques when creating your projects... I hope you enjoy my project on this summer day here in the States as we share things from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog

There's nothing like Christmas in July to keep you cool on a hot summer day here in NW Ohio!  My favorite Suite in the holiday mini catalog that goes live on August 4, 2020, is the Poinsettia Place Suite.  Poinsettias are dear to my heart as they are the "flower" for my birth month while the star-shaped leaves symbolize the Star of Bethlehem.  These Mexican shrubs were first introduced in the US in the 1820s.  The primary leaves are dark green with the colored bracts traditionally being flaming red with varieties including orange, pale green, cream, pink, white or marbled.  Click here  for more details about this beautiful foliage.

The Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set (pp. 14-16) is an amazing stamp set with so many possibilities on its own.  For today's cards, I chose to pair it with the Peaceful Boughs cling stamp set and the coordinating Beautiful Boughs dies from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog (p. 57).

To make a set of four coordinating cards, the detailed poinsettia was randomly stamped in Real Red along the center of a full size piece of Shimmery White cardstock.  Cut the cardstock to four card front layers for watercoloring with the fine tip and medium tip water painters.
Apply the ink as a simple wash or a blend of multiple ink layers as I did to obtain a watercolor image.

Stamp the Peaceful Boughs sentiments in Real Red onto the Beautiful Boughs Crumb Cake label die cuts, fill in the open-lined word(s) (Peace,and Greetings) with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker, accent with a Pear Pizzazz bough sprig and adhere to the card front with mini glue dots.  Adhere to a slightly larger Real Red layer with liquid glue.  Thread Linen Thread through the side openings, wrap around and tie off with a bow.  Adhere to Crumb Cake card front with liquid glue.

And for the inside, offstamp the poinsettia and stamp the coordinating sentiment in Real Red.  The layers are repeated to compliment the card front.  And continue the poinsettia image on the envelope to complete the set!
