Peace ~ Love ~ Joy

The other day I just started making Poinsettias.  Had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I knew a card was in the making. 

This card is for the Simon Says Stamp, Monday Challenge, Patchwork.  I created a very simple patchwork background and then added my home made accents.

The poinsettia was created by combing 8 "leaves" cut out with my Cameo.  I layered them together and then using a 2 Way Zig Glue pen, traced an outline of the petals and added some fine glitter and rhinestone adhesive in the center.   The Christmas Tree is just a simple triangle, cut from chipboard covered with a pretty Christmas DP and several green adhesive rhinestones.  The pretty Wreath was made by using Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Circle dies, super easy, also cut out from chipboard and covered with another Christmas DP, added several red adhesive rhinestones and a small twine bow to complete the wreath.
The stamp is from the Merry Little Christmas set, available at Gina K Designs.  It happens to be a favorite of mine!  Added a couple of green eyelets and done!  :)
I made a pile of the Poinsettias, so I am sure you will be seeing more and more of them!
Fa La La La La.........
Thanks for popping in!  Enjoy your day!


  1. Sweet Christmas card Donna. Could all of the images be used later for tree ornaments, after you give the card away? Love the paisley paper, it is elegant and does not over power the images.

    1. Probably not as I adhered them with Scor Tape and that stuff is strong! :)

  2. Sweet card, Donna. I love all of your handmade accents. They really add a special touch.....well done!

  3. SUPER card my friend. All the handmade ornaments make it really special....I like Barbara's idea of using them for tree ornaments. This card gave me the idea I needed for a friends b'day card... making a patchwork background since she's a quilter

  4. Great card! The checkerboard background and the poinsettia are fabulous!

  5. Love your handmade ornaments so gorgeous ! Have a Blessed day!

  6. Oh, you clever girl. I'm gonna go right into my craft room and look to see what "leaves" my Cricut will cut out. Great idea for that poinsettia. Also the tree and wreath. All super simple, but so very effective. Thanks for the inspiration once again my dear!!

  7. What a beautiful holiday card! Love how you make background pattern. The Christmas tree is fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. :)

  8. Wow, I really love the design on this one, it is so inspirational! I'm definitely going to do something similar, it's just so lovely!
