A poinsettia for Advent



Morning to you all, it's time for our new challenges at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More where this month we have the themes of Free and Easy and Traditional Christmas colours. And as always some great prizes up for grabs so I do hope you will join in.

The above one is my Penny Black and More piece with a vellum stamped poinsettia and below some inky indulgence  using a variety of stamps and of course Pan Pastels.



Have a good Sunday everyone.

  3. MOrning Brenda. Love the poinsettia and that embossing folder is wonderful. I can just see Father Christmas in that lovely log cabin (which is actually like the tardis!!) cracking the whip to get the elves to work harder!! Comet, Dancer and Rudolph are feeding up, of course, ready for the imminent busy night!! Have a good day xx

  20. Beautiful cards, love the Poinsettia, it's one of my favs (I have that stamp) and the scene on the 2nd is very pretty. I hope you are doing OK, take care, Shirleyx

  21. Two very different creations but it was easy the poinsettias that won for my favourite. Your wreath with the black & red, white & green looks so beautiful with the die-cut holly echoed by your dry embossed panel. The sparkle of your poinsettia adds lovely contrast with the red matting layers.
    The second is a scene so reminiscent of where my parents had a house in Sweden. Lovely with all the texture & detail.
