Welcome to the October Stampers By The Dozen blog hop.
I am featuring the Poinsettia Petals Bundle, which I used to make a lovely ornament you could use as a gift or just simply a beautiful home decor piece.
In this first photo I used all three layers of the poinsettia to create a full flower with three leaves and a little piece of gold berries. I made two complete sets of this flower so that no matter which way it turned it looked just like this. I used dimensionals and glue dots to hold it together. The ribbon looped through the middle is our Gold Metallic ribbon with Gold Metallic Pearls to create the center. To give the leave “a lift” I used my you pick tool with the large stylus end. By running your stylus along the vein of the petals or leaves, you cause your cardstock to “lift”.
Here is another one I made with just the two smaller sets of petals.
This ornament I made the same way as the first with just two of the smaller petals and added one of the Gold Hoops. I just love how these are coming out and what wonderful gifts they will make. I wish you could see them in person. For a little shine, you may want to put a little wink of stella on the leaves. Another idea would be to edge each of the petals with versa mark and emboss with gold emobossing powder.
This shot is of the center of the ornament before coming up with ideas to hide this. A couple of things you can do to hide the dimensionals are, one color the edges of the dimensional with a marker the same color as you cardstock. Or two, you could use glue dots to adhere the tips of the front and back petals to close this gap between layers. I think either way looks finished.
The ideas and color variations are endless. Give this project a try and please show me what you have created. I hope I have inspired you to use the Poinsettia Petals bundle.
Let’s see what’s up next for you.
Here are the items I used:
