52 CCT Technique Challenge

Hello! Over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week we have a technique challenge. Louise has chosen Triple Time Stamping - a lovely technique that creates amazing effects. It does call for some precision stamping - not my strong point! At least you can always use a well-placed sentiment or embellishment to hide a multitude of sins though!
 
For my card I have used a stamp set by Clearly Besotted called Pretty Poinsettia. I stamped the larger flower with Sahara Sand and the smaller one in Real Red. I fussy-cut an additional ponsettia to add a bit of dimension. I also added some die-cut pine sprigs and painted the centres of the flowers and the pine needles with Cosmic Shimmer. I do hope you will join us this week over at 52CCT, April x

I'd also like to enter my card in Crafty Hazelnut's Challenge Extra.

  1. Beautiful! I love your Ida of lifting one of the images out of the stamped background. I know what you mean about precision stamping... 4 times I started to make my card and something always seemed to go wrong! You, on the other hand, have done a fab job!

  6. The poinsettias are lovely! I agree with the others - the dimension of the extra fussy-cut one adds a wonderful finishing touch to your card.
