Yes, I know…it’s still fall. The season is fall, the weather is fall, the stamp set is fall, and we haven’t even had Thanksgiving. Call me an obnoxious crafting rebel, but I needed to break the mold and show you how this “fall” stamp set could be used for the holidays. MissCarriesCreations-PoinsettiaOrnamentBH.jpg

This card just makes my heart happy. The primitive colors, bits of plaid and stitching remind me of a country Christmas.  My design required the use the Family Time stamp set in conjunction with our new For the Tree ornament stamp set.

After cutting the ornament shape using the Custom Ornament Thin Cuts, I stamped the black cardstock using White Daisy Pigment Ink to give it the chalk-like look. I used the flower and leaf images from the Family Time stamp set to construct a layered Candy Apple poinsettia with a heat embossed center. MissCarriesCreations-PoinsettiaOrnamentDetail2

To balance the out my Country Christmas card, I added a bit of holly with small red dots. Images from the Family Time stamp set were also used to make the background and sentiment. Can you guess which three stamps I used?MissCarriesCreations-PoinsettiaOrnamentDetail.jpg

  1. OH…MY….GOSH!!! I absolutely LOVE this card! You’re a GENIUS! Now, I’m wondering if I can hurry up and buy For the Tree and if it will be here in time for Christmas (you’re such an enabler)!
