Freshly Made Sketches: Layered Poinsettia

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Brum and here’s what I did with it!

11.24.21 FMS side

A poinsettia seemed like a great choice for the middle element and I had the Waffle Flower Layered Poinsettia die in my not-yet-used stash.  I knew it could stand alone because it has wonderful details in each petal. 

I played with a patterned stripe, but I decided on greenery so I used a sprig from the Waffle Flower Spotlight Elements. The set comes in a handy-dandy predesigned layout for spotlighting - I know that's obvious by the name! So the sprig and that sentiment are actually on one stamp with the idea that you can spotlight portions of it.  But since I do like sticking with the same company when possible and since the look of the sprig seemed right with their poinsettia, I cut the stamp apart and used the sprig and the sentiment separately. I used the sprig to the right fairly close to the edge, then I flipped it and used just a few pieces (it overlaps in the middle but hidden by the poinsettia.)

  1. This is wonderful, Kim! Love that pretty little poinsettia! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. This is just beautiful Kim! I love that poinsettia and the greenery! Also love that scalloped mat! So pretty and perfect for Christmas!

  3. Beautiful Christmas card design and I love the poinsettia!

  4. I love the pinkiness of your flower! beautifully done!

  5. This is gorgeous! I love how the sprig accents the poinsettia. And I love the black scallop layer too. It really calls the main layer to attention!

  6. Really love this card, Kim! That is a beautiful poinsettia & the greenery for the strip is such a great idea! I totally agree about how long cross stitch projects take vs making cards--even with some stitching.

  7. This bold sentiment works beautifully with that gorgeous poinsettia. I've got this stamp set and have considered cutting it up too. I think this looks great!
