Hello to all. I am going to share a fun and easy tutorial on how to create a beautiful festive poinsettia card using your Spectrum Noir markers and vellum.
I have colored the fabulous Poinsettia stamp by Sheena Douglass from Crafter’s Companion for this tutorial.
I used the large and medium leaf stamps, ten large leaf stamps and five medium leaf stamps, plus the small and large flower center onto my sheet of vellum, using clear embossing ink.
I coated all of the images in fine gold embossing powder and set with my heat tool.
I turned the sheet of vellum over and worked on the back, to preserve the embossing detail.
I colored the first five leaf shapes with a base coat of DG2 to cover the leaves and GB5 to add central detail.
Blend the GB5 with the DG2 to soften the effect. Use DG4 around the outside of the leaves for definition and blend again with DG2.
To color the petals and floral center, use CR7 and CR8, with the darker tone towards the center of the petal.
Add definition with the use of DR9 to outline the veins of the petals. Blend out using CR7.
Turn your vellum over and you will see your Spectrum Noir coloring detail under your lovely embossing detail.
Cut out all of your leaves and center detail.
Cut a small circle of card and using tacky glue, stick your five green leaves onto the circle, as shown above.
Add your five large petals and stick in the formation shown.
Now use your small petals and centers to complete your flower. A small crystal detail has been added.
Add your poinsettia creation to the front of your card or project and decorate as desired. For this card I have used an embossed backing panel of Centura Pearl Card using a Christmas embossing folder from Crafter’s Companion .
The die cuts are Holly and Ivy Die’sire dies from Crafter’s Companion.
