Merry Christmas Cards | Petite Poinsettias Stamp Set


Sunny Studio has become known for their amazing layering stamps set and their newest set called Petite Poinsettias does not disappoint. This set is a must for this years Christmas cards! It creates beautiful poinsettias and they are so easy to stamp, especially with the help of a stamp positioning tool such as the MISTI.

Merry Christmas Cards by Juliana Michaels featuring Sunny Studio Stamps Petite Poinsettia Stamp Set

I stamped the flowers using Archival Ink in Pink Peony, Rose Madder and Red Geranium. For the centers I used Chrome Yellow and Dandelion and for the leaves I used Sap Green and Fern Green. I then die cut the flowers and leaves using the coordinating Petite Poinsettia dies.

Merry Christmas Card | Fishtail Banners II


On this first card I used the Sunny Studio Fishtail Banners II Dies to cut a piece of white cardstock at an angle. I then trimmed this to layer on top of an embossed and die cut green cardstock panel. I love the added interest this lends to the overall design and it's a fun new way to use this die.

Next, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then adhered three of the poinsettias along with some of the leaves. To add a bit of dimension I used double sided foam tape to adhere two of the flowers.

For a touch of sparkle, I outlined the veins on the flowers with a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in Stardust. This doesn't photograph very well, but I promise it looks spectacular in person!

Merry Christmas Card | Clustered Poinsettias

On this second card, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in gold on a white die cut label die. I then clustered three of the poinsettias below it and popped up the center flower with some double sided foam adhesive.

I used the same embossing folder on the background that I used on the first card. I love the subtle texture it adds. I also used the Gelly Roll pen on these flowers as well.

I hope you enjoyed the inspiration I created and shared using the new Petite Poinsettia Stamp Set!

Besides the beautiful flowers, the Petite Poinsettia set also comes with a combo of sentiments that can be mixed and matched.

  83. None of the designers used this set. I don't know how I missed it when I was looking at the whole release. So pretty and not too complicated. (An added bonus if you need to make a lot. My hubbys family is huge. 65 cards a year). I would still make some like the polar bears, etc, but dealing with lots of tiny images is not my cup of tea. Great cards
