Hello and happy Friday afternoon. There have been so many great pretty poinsettia projects this week that we’re sure you have some new inspiration for your holiday projects.
Here’s a round-up of the week and access to the blog post for details are included so you can hop on over for review. We introduced Cling Create A Poinsettia Stamp Set on Monday and Tuesday with the coordinating Create A Poinsettia Die Cut Set and a great video from Fran with tips and techniques. Wednesday was scrapbooking day for a great use of your Stampendous stamps with memories in an economical way.
There are some fabulous stencils in our Dreamweaver Stencils Christmas section that we peeked at on Thursday with a step photo on how to combine stencils into a DIY ornament card. Today we are adding some of those sweet little mice from House-Mouse Designs to the inspiration palette.
Amanda and Mudpie share a solemn moment atop a Christmas poinsettia in this HMR41 Poinsettia Candle Rubber Stamp. The card below is done with colored pencils and all sorts of fun circles die cut, punched and embossed with our DWLX7029 Spiral Dots Stencil. The added sentiment from the new SSC1231 Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear Stamp Set pulls it all together.
We hope you enjoyed our selection of poinsettia images and all the inspiration you’ve seen this week. There are even more design team blogs who are awaiting your arrival with more inspiring projects. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you here next week with tons of ideas to use our Dreamweaver Embossing Paste.

Welcome back to another day of pretty poinsettias! We had a chance to see in video we posted yesterday all the possibilities using Create A Poinsettia Cling Stamp and Die Cut Set, but did you spot Fran’s great idea for keeping track of the parts of the free template included in the stamp package? How about her tip for lining up the dies onto the image for cutting quickly and efficiently every time? If not, stop by Monday’s blog post and see the video.
Today is a sneak peek at the products themselves before a little project treat or two as well. This gorgeous poinsettia flower arrangement is accompanied by a vintage style greeting for a great card or scrapbook page and yes holiday ornaments, too!
The coordinating die cut set will help layer the poinsettia flower into four sections, but really you can stamp and layer until it looks just they way you want. Just stamp out a few extra flowers from to create a beautiful three-dimensional effect with it.
One of the possibilities Fran shared in the video is to use thin chipboard cut with the dies to add stability to each flower layer and then add a jump rings to attach beads and a hook or loop for a pretty ornament. Here’s her finished sample she started in the video and it turned out beautiful!

It has all of our fabulous holiday stamps we’ve been talking about, ready to drop in a shopping cart or add to your wish list! We are so excited to share all these images with you here, but maybe just one stamp from our website for now will do because there are plans for more weeks of Christmas and holiday themes in the weeks ahead.
