The Words of Cheer is our featured set this week! I HIGHLY recommend the bundle (#156389) to save the 10%. You saw the dies from this set used with yesterday's projects. Today we're featuring the gorgeous poinsettia stamp. This is a large stamp so the D block is recommended. On Crumb Cake cardstock, stamp the image and sentiment using Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow or Old Olive.
Using the watercolor pencils (#141709), I colored the leaves in Old Olive and the flowers, sprigs and berries using White.
Once everything was colored in, I used the acrylic block as a palette smooshing some ink and then using a blender pen (#102845) to apply color in the areas I wanted to be darker and then blend out using the blender.
Finally, I used the edge die from the Scalloped Contours Die set to give it a decorative edge before adhering to a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Peaceful Prints DSP and then adhering that to an A2 cardbase in Mossy Meadow (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). Please note that ANY coordinating designer series paper will work for this project... use what you like. The Peaceful Prints DSP was a Sale-a-bration item and is no longer available.

Thank you for joining us this week.... stay tuned for my ULTIMATE CASE from the catalog!!! Super excited for that words of cheer project!!!
