Glitter Queens Blog Hop


I love to be able to use a stamp set to achieve two or three totally different looks. This one sure delivers! The poinsettia is made by stamping two leaves. One leaf creates the flower, the other to add the green plant. They were both created by stamping with the same ink as the colored cardstock: Cherry Cobbler on Cherry Cobbler, and Old Olive on Old Olive. 


I used:
Paper: Crumb Cake CS #120953, Cherry Cobbler CS #119685, Old Olive CS #100702
Stamps: French Foliage #121166, Curly Cute #120510
Ink: Cherry Cobbler #119669, Old Olive #102277
Other: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon #120902, Antique Brads #117273, Basic Pearls #119247, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder #116824
