STAMPlorations Inspiration Project #52

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

I am still in Christmas card mood. 
Here are my supplies:

WOW black embossing powder

I stamped and heat embossed the poinsettia onto water color card stock. Sprinkled some Brushos around and spritzed it. I made sure to not spritz the inside of the flower. Added the sentiment, the frame and the sequins once everything was dry.

I was inspired by Sandy Allnock, who made some fantastic cards using that technique!

Happy Stamping!

What a lovely way to use your brusho-s. This background is splendid for this pretty poinsettia, and I'd never thought to use the brusho-s in quite this way! I LOVE it! Merry Christmas, & TFS

Me likey...very much. Don't you love the color Brusho's provide. They make that poinsettia pop off the card. Lovely layout, too.

That background is beautiful! I've never tried Brushos, but the results here are superb. Perfect card. Xx

Such a catchy card...I ADORE it! Loved the inky brusho and the way you didn't let it go inside the poinsettia! :)

The flower on that background looks smashing :)

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
