Should I call this post Ornament Card... since the Ornament card was featured under Pointsettia Punch! hah!

You see why I don't do this.... I'm challenged!  In lots of areas.... lol
HERE's the Poinsettia Card, which we made at our Christmas Card Buffet this weekend... it was the biggest hit!

Once again, so much prettier in person... someday when I have extra minutes (not this week!) I'll figure out how to take awesome pictures...
LOVE LOVE this card!

I have a fun trick for making the flower... wouldn't it be GREAT if I could figure out the darn videos...
Try to follow along...
Punch a 1" circle to build your flower on.
Stamp and punch out SIX of the "double" petals (I used Cherry Cobbler)
On the circle, criss cross THREE of these double petals to form a circle of 6
then CUT THE REMAINING THREE into single petals.
Add a touch of Tombow Multi Glue onto the bottom back of each petal, and tuck in between each of the petals already on the circle, between the petals and the circle... Clear as mud?  :)  
OH... and then Punch out TWO double petals in Old Olive, cut apart, and tuck in for leaves...
Hey... videos are coming... really.... I'm so close... yeah... define close...

Pointsettia Punch Christmas Card

it's been A MONTH...aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
but, I have to look at it this way... still an improvement since I started the blog - it was TWO YEARS between posts... so one month... lookin' pretty good!  

Here's a card that the stampers will be making this weekend at my Christmas Card Buffet!  Ladies come and make 12 cards... they choose their favorites, and make multiples of the 3-4 card designs they like the best!  I will be posting their other choices in the next day or two... or month or two... who knows!

Clearly haven't honed those photography skills yet... but.. You can get the idea...
I wanted to use the Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set without the framelits - make this one truly "FAST and Fabulous" ... 
So I just stamped the ornament with Bermuda Bay ink on whisper white cardstock which was cut 3 x 3 3/4 - then layered onto 3 1/4 x 4 Bermuda Bay cardstock.  Made the bow with whisper white seam binding. I used our new silver cording from the Holiday Catalog to make the loop, and the fun loops behind the little flower.  Add some of our Bermuda Bay sequins and a few Rhinstones... wahlah! or... wala... or wahla... or walah... you get the idea!
Fun... QUICK card... a great layout for Christmas when you need to make a ton of them!
Online store link is to the right... click on the cute kitty with the shopping cart... contact me if you have any questions!  

I'm alive... this isn't me... LOL

No... this isn't me under that building!  I'm the "good witch" !  HAH!  
I promise a card is coming in just a few hours... and hopefully, that will be the start of another good run...
if I mess up again... go ahead and drop a store on me!  So much more fun than having a house dropped on you right?  
I REALLY want to make a version of this for the front of my house... and I just might still have to do it... I promise to post a picture if I pull it off!  WOO HOO!
