Holiday Decor is out theme this month, let’s see what everyone has for you.

Here is my Poinsettia Petals Garland. This was such a fun project and easy!

Poinsettia Petals Garland

This garland was so easy to put together. First I used a 10 bulb strand of lights from the Dollar Store. This one has clear lights on it, but if you can get the ones with yellow lights, they would look really pretty with the yellow centers.

I then made from the Poinsettia Dies, 10 sets of the three petals, ten sets of the two sizes of leaves and ten of the centers. A little hint when you are die cutting the centers. I used a 3/16″ hole punch to punch a hole in the Daffadil Delight card stock, then centered the die on it and cut it out! As for the centers of the petals, they fit easily in my 3/16″ hole punch. There is one of these on your cropadile if you have one.

Then I took the Poinsettia Petals and gently squeezed them to give a 3D effect to them. Then I simply use two glue dots on the backside of the smaller petal, lined it up over the medium sized petals. Then repeated with two glue dots on the back of the medium petal and lined up over the larger one. Be sure you use the punched hole as your guide to lining up the centers. I then proceded to role up a glue dot and adhere to the back of the center and lined that up also. To attach the leaves, I again used two glue dots down at the base of the leaf and attached where I thought they were most attractive!

The last step is to push them onto your lights. If they do not fit snugly enough, you can put a glue dot on one side of the light, then push the flower on to the light and it should stay.

Here is a photo of one up close.

SBTD ~ Basket of Blooms

Basket of Blooms

Basket of Blooms is a wonderful new set in the 2020-2021 Stampin’Up! catalog. So happy it coordinates with the Small Bloom punch. I have listed the supplies I used below. This is just a little sampling of the potential this set has. I think you would find many uses for the Basket of Blooms stamp set.

Tasteful Touches

The Tasteful Textures stamp set is brand new in the 2020-2021 catalog. Here I have used the spray and flower image from this set, along with one of the word stamps. This set has so much potential, especially with the different background images in it. One thing I did differently on this card (for me anyway), is that I embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder first and then stamped my images to create a bit of a distressed look. Tasteful Textures will be used many times, in many ways!
