Perfect Poinsettia–MFT October Release Countdown, Day Three


Hi everyone, it’s Day Three of MFT’s October Release Countdown! Release is on October 9 at 10am Eastern so mark your calendars! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing PI Holiday Cheer Stamp Set, PI Holiday Cheer Die-namics. Trio of Trees Stamp Set, Trio of Trees Die-namics, Delightful Deer Die-namics, Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings, and Perfect Poinsettia Die-namics.


First, let me say how stinkin’ excited I am to have another Christmas script stamp set AND a new poinsettia Die-namics!!! Woot!!! For my card I started by cutting the poinsettia from Ranger Watercolor Paper, colored it with Peerless Watercolors and when it was dry sprinkled with clean water and assembled. Next I covered a Sweet Tooth card stock base with Black & White Dots Paper Pack then added a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock, stamped with Christmas Background and Delicata Gold ink, at a wonky angle.


Then I stamped Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings on more Sweet Tooth card stock, popped that up on a wonky angle and adhered the poinsettia. To finish off I added some Gold Glitter Sprinkles.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you back tomorrow for Day Two of MFT’s October Release Countdown!

  1. So pretty! This is a nice Die. Makes a pretty card.

  2. I like all the speckles on the beautiful poinsettia.

  3. Very nice card. I really like how the pointsettia looks as if the leaves are mottled. And I liked how you set the focal piece a little bit tilted...looks great....thank you so much for sharing.

  4. Watercoloring and the water sprinkles really made the poinsettia realistic. I am now imaging the poinsettia in non-traditional colors. Fabulous card!

  5. Very beautiful card. Love the poinsettia die and the elegant sentiment.

  6. Gorgeous! I should have checked all the blog posts before I placed my order. Now I need to add those sentiments to my wishlist. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card.
