What's Black, White, and Red All Over?

Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today, and I have some holiday inspiration for you using one of our newest stamp sets: Decorative Poinsettia Frame Stamp & Cut! This small stamp and die set packs quite a punch, and I've used it two different ways for today's post, so let's get started with the details! 

I created a card and tag using only the Decorative Poinsettia Frame Stamp & Cut as the focal point. The image is a nice size (especially for the price point) and is so beautifully detailed that it doesn't need much help from supporting products! I kept everything clean with a modern red, black, and white color scheme for both products today. It's wintry and cold outside (who gave fall permission to leave so early?), so this monochromatic color combination worked perfectly. 

For the tag, I began by heat embossing the main image from Decorative Poinsettia Frame Stamp & Cut onto some Cherry cardstock using white embossing powder, then die cut it with the coordinating Frame Cut. I then die cut a simple black "Merry Christmas" from the Christmas Trimmings Stamp & Cut using Pitch Black cardstock, mounting it on the frame using Precision Glue. I mounted the pretty floral frame onto an Ornament Tags Fancy Die cut from Pebble cardstock, finishing it off with some red and white twine left over from the DIY Ornament Kit. An easy peasy, but elegant, tag that would be super simple to mass produce!

The card, however, was a bit more involved. I began by stamping the main image, sentiment, and a few of the floral "extras" from the Decorative Poinsettia Frame Stamp & Cut using Intens-ified Black Ink onto some white, Copic-friendly cardstock. I then used my Copic markers to color the images in the same elegant red, white, and black color combination. I die cut them out using the coordinating dies from the Decorative Poinsettia Frame Stamp & Cut

After I'd finished die cutting, I stamped the main frame image again on my white A2 card base, just to give an idea of placement. I then stamped the foliage "extras" around the edge of the stamped frame, adding a bit of extra interest (and size!) to the focal point. I colored those images with the same Copic markers. I adhered the die cuts to the card front using foam adhesive for extra dimension, then used a fine point black marker to add some random dots around the floral spray to help this diminutive image cover more of the card front. 

Well, that's all for my projects today! I hope you've enjoyed these ideas.... just goes to show how big an impact a seemingly-minuscule stamp set can have on your holiday crafting! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
