Season's Greetings


I saw on the news that snow has already fallen, but thankfully not where I live.  We are having beautiful Autumn weather.  

The holidays will be here soon and it will be time to send greetings to our friends and family.  Today I have a card I designed using Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettias.  I used Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray to achieve the speckle on these red poinsettias.  Behind the poinsettias are sprigs of Susan's Garden  Notes Whitepine Boughs.

The sentiment is one of the Way With Words die cuts by Quietfire.  It was die cut using shiny gold card stock.  The background is a piece of design paper I had in my stash.  To border the design, I used Elizabeth Craft Border Peel Off Stickers.

Stunning reminder that snow will be here before we know it. The Cubs lost the series, but Fall here is still beautiful too!

Gorgeous card. Love the poinsettias and the pretty sentiment in shinny gold.

Did the Goosebumps spray turn the red cs white or was the spray itself white ?? Thank you.

Answer . . . .

I die cut the poinsettia petals using white card stock. The petals were lightly sprayed with the GooseBumps to leave speckles in the card stock. The GooseBumps, when dry, acts as a resist. Once Goosebumps is dry, sponge on red ink. Buff lightly to remove any ink that may be on the gooseBumps. Where the Goosebumps is, the card stock will remain white, giving you the white speckles on red petals.
