Shimmer Vellum Poinsettia Cards

As crafters, we sure do amass a lot of products that we often forget about cause they are hiding at the bottom of a drawer. Such is the case with my supply of 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum cardstock.

I was looking for a different way to stamp the poinsettia flowers instead of using cardstock and colouring with Blends or watercolouring, and came across my stash of vellum and I was off and running.

I started with silver heat embossing the flowers on Polished Pink and made this card into a flowerpot easel fold.

Next, I tried white heat embossing on the Pale Papaya and Fresh Freesia and loved the effect.

Hand-Penned Cathedral Window Sampler

I spent some time today experimenting with the Cathedral Window Quilt Pattern technique to make this 12" x 12" sampler, ready to display in a shadow box.

I tried a few different colours and designs and was pleased with this final project, using the Hand-Penned Suite and just four (4) coordinating colours - Pale Papaya, Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight.

All the squares are made from the largest circle in the Layering Circle Dies and the panels are roughly 2" square to work with, making this a fiddly little project, but well worth the effort.

I pulled in a few different sets of dies for all of elements.
