Welcome to Day 2 of the TE Sneak Peeks!  We have 2 fabulous sets to show you today – Totally Tags and Peaceful Poinsettias.  My sample showcases Peaceful Poinsettias illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes collection.  It’s a full size (5.75″ x 8.5″) set with 16 images and it has so many options for creating gorgeous poinsettias!  You can stamp outlines and color with Copics, you can stamp solid images with ink, and you can die cut and layer to your heart’s content with the coordinating Poinsettia Taylored Die set!  I had so much fun playing with this set and I know you’re going to be amazed when you see what the Baker’s Dozen came up with!

My project is a $2.49 picture frame I picked up at Michael’s. I wanted to frame the photo of Tessa that we used on our Christmas cards last year.  Look at my sweet baby wearing her Christmas coat!  (Click on the photos to see them larger.)

I used papers and ribbon from the Holiday Wonder Project Pantry (also available Thursday.)  The papers were adhered with Mod Podge and then covered with Shimmer Mod Podge which has a pretty gold shimmery finish.  The dimensional poinsettias are the star of the show though!

Here’s what I did to achieve this look:

  • Stamped the solid layer images onto ivory cardstock with Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, and Lucky Limeade ink
  • Die cut all my pieces with the Poinsettia Taylored Dies
  • Used a Krylon Gold Leafing Pen to go around all the edges – love the rich elegant look of this!
  • Placed each piece on a piercing mat (a mouse pad would also work) and used an embossing stylus to emboss into all the veins on all individual layers and leaves
  • Used my knuckle to impress deeply into the center of each flower layer
  • Lined up the layers on the piercing mat and used my piercer to punch a hole for a rhinestone brad
  • Attached all layers together with the rhinestone brad

Once I got going, all of those steps went pretty quickly.  I’m excited to have a new Christmas decor piece and I’m anxious to play with this stamp set even more!  Let’s see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up!

Thanks for stopping by!  Even more peeks are on the way tomorrow!

    Nothing is more absolutely frustrating to any person than needing to write one’s thoughts clearly and concisely on paper, in the form of a personal letter to a friend or loved one, a statement of purpose required in a university application, a professional summation of job performance required by a manager, or an essay, research paper, or thesis required by a high school instructor or college professor for a course grade, and not having the fundamental skills to do so.
