My card share today features the Essentials by Ellen Mondo Poinsettia Stamp Set. The poinsettia stamp set is gorgeous and it is large. Therefore, my card is 5″ x 7″. I created the card in response to a Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers, as well as a Pin-Sights Challenge at Ellen Hutson LLC Classroom. As of this posting, the Essentials by Ellen Mondo Poinsettia Stamp Set is unavailable. However, you can enter your email address on the site and be notified when, and if, it is restocked.
The color combination for the color challenge was Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, and Pool Party. I used these colors in card stock, but I colored the poinsettia with closely related Copic Sketch Marker colors. The Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge involves viewing and being inspired by holiday photos on the site. One photo, which inspired this card, is of poinsettia garland around a fire place. The garland and adjacent decorations are beautiful. The photo is in the top row, third from the left in the below.
For the Mossy Meadow border, I used the Spellbinders Holly Frame Dies to cut out the frame. This frame is quite intricate and sometimes I experience difficulty getting all the leaves and swirls to cut out. But the dies are worth it as they create beautiful art.
Thanks for stopping in to see my Mondo Poinsettia card!
