CAS Christmas Poinsettia Challenge

The Joy of a craft room Purge...finding new old treasures!

I made 2 cards after finding these pretty Poinsettias premade images :-)

I am playing along with the CAS Christmas Challenge July Poinsettia Challenge.

My CAS Christmas Cards

2nd Card

I just reversed the colors.  Very simple and fun CAS design using 
colored cardstock and white cardstock and the same sentiment Die Cut.

The poinsettias were gifted to me several years ago.  I think they were from Michaels.

I was inspired by DT member,  Hideko's (Papercraft Boutique) sample card!

I loved her stenciled with glitter paste and framed image.
I thought I had a poinsettia stencil,  but turned out it was a holly stencil, 
so my card looks very different, but I like the results.

Thanks Hideko though for getting my creative juices flowing:-)

Enjoy,  you have until the 24th to play along.  All the DT and the GD Marina's
cards are so inspiring and beautiful.

Paper: SU Whisper White Thick and SU Green CS.

  1. love the 2 cards Nancy, the bold greens and red are so perfect for Christmas and fun CASE of Hideko's card. Thanks for hinng us at CAS Christmas :)

  2. Beautiful cards from your inspiration and how cool that you had those wonderful poinsettias on hand. Nice to find things like that! Love the rich green and white background too!

  3. Both cards are so classy, Nancy! You used a very nice curvy die with the sentiment. Love the two tone color blocking with the red poinsettias' accents. I'm so happy and honored to hear that my card inspired you!
    I'm sure your creative juice will keep flowing in your newly organized craft room. :-) Thank you for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx

    1. I always love your CAS card designs, Hideko. It was fun having my cards inspired by you , my friend. Thank you.. Hugs...

  4. Always great to find treasures when sorting through! Your poinsettias are so pretty and have a bit of a vintage-y look. Love the inlaid curved sentiment ... so great when you can get two cards from it by using leftovers from the first! xx

  5. Two quick and pretty cards with your craft room finds! So nice to come across those poinsettias. Love the Merry Christmas die. I have a similar one for Easter, but would get more use out of the Christmas die, I'm sure. I hope to play along this time, too. Good progress on Christmas, Nancy!

  6. What a great way to get two cards made quickly! Love the way that die splits the background into white and green. What luck to find those pre-made poinsettias and put them into use for the challenge! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Christmas.

  7. Great how you reversed the colours to make two wonderful and beautiful CAS cards x. Perfect colour combination, love the layouts and the prettiest of poinsettia's x.

  8. Amazing what you find after organizing your craft room! Two wonderful cards, Nancy! Love the curved design and how you inversed the colours. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas Poinsettia challenge. x

  9. These pretty poinsettias were a lucky find, Nancy! Love the curved Merry Christmas die cut both ways! Thanks so much for sharing these with us at CAS Christmas!
