Happy Friday Everyone ~ want to see how I used a flower stamp and punch to create my Pop of Petals Poinsettia?
Well I met with the builder on Thursday. He wanted to measure my stained glass windows and we talked about some issues with the plans I found when I walked through the other day. We determined the placement for the windows and then talked about some of the other problems. There was a large window in the master bath they had framed out for. I sent an e-mail saying I loved it and he said it was not supposed to be large. He found out the price of the large window and I decided to go with the larger window. It will allow so much more light in there. Then we talked about the kennel cubby that was supposed to be under the stairs in the laundry room. There were water pipes there and I asked how it was going to work out. He said to wait until the stairs get in and we will see if there is enough room to still do it on the side of the pipes. WE also talked about the fact that I will be out of town from the 13th through the 26th or 27th. We decided to plan a walk through with the plumber and electrician next Wednesday to talk about placement of things. The builder wants to be able to keep going the week before Christmas so he wants to be prepared just in case. Now I have to sit down and determine where I want things on the blueprint so I can let them know. That is going to be lots of fun!
Today is the last day of my week long sharing of Christmas Tags. I wanted to do a poinsettia but I do not have a stamp nor punch for this flower. I decided to see if I had an alternative I could use. I decided to see what a Pop of Petals flower would look like as one. I stamped 2 of the flowers on Whisper White using Cherry Cobbler ink. The coordinating punch was used to punch out both of them. I then used Stampin’ dimensionals to layer the 2 flowers so they looked like a poinsettia. To create my base I used a 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Whisper White. The top corners were notched at an angle so it looked like a shipping tag. The white was very harsh so I used the Timeless Textures and Crumb Cake ink to stamp around the edge. It still needed some more toning down so I used a sponge and added some more ink all over. When it was finally toned down enough, the Detailed Trio punch was used to add the hole for the ribbon. I used the sentiment in Snowflake Sentiments and Cherry Cobbler ink to add my sentiment at the top. some Call Me Clover card stock and the Pretty Pines thinlits to cut out some sprigs. The sprigs were added to the lower portion of the tag using glue dots. The poinsettia flower was added on top using dimensionals. Some retired gold enamel dots were added to the center. To finish off the tag I took a piece of retired Cherry Cobbler twine and threaded it through the hole at the top. A piece of Whisper White baker’s twine was used to tie a bow around the Cherry Cobbler twine. Here is my completed Pop of Petals Poinsettia tag.
