And here is what I came up with!
I went in a little different direction. I wanted to try to make a poinsettia. I have seen several different ways to make these and a lot of different inspiration using products from many different companies. So I combined several and came up with this! I used the blossom builder punch for mine and turned the petals so they were more pointy on the ends. First, my card base is Cherry Cobbler. The three strips are also Cherry Cobbler with strips of Basic Black that were punched with the dotted ribbon scallop punch peeking out. My flagged horizontal piece is Very Vanilla with the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in black StazOn. For the poinsettia I punched twelve of the longer petal from the Newsprint designer paper. I sponged those with Crumb Cake. I arranged six of them on a 1 1/4" circle using glue dots. Then I took the other six and staggered them over the first six using dimensionals. Then I punched eight of the smaller petals from the Newsprint designer paper and sponged them with Crumb Cake. I arranged four of them using glue dots and then staggered the remaining four with glue dots. Then I used the Boho Blossoms punch and punched the two smaller flowers from the Newsprint designer paper and sponged those with Crumb Cake. These are adhered to the middle of the poinsettia with glue dots. Then I took some Cherry Cobbler ink and lightly sponged it over the whole piece. I took three pieces of Always Artichoke seam binding ribbon and flagged one end. The other end is adhered with glue dots to the back of the poinsettia and the whole piece is adhered to the card. For the final touch, I add three pearl to the center of the poinsettia. I hope that I explained all of that so that it makes sense.
I now encourage you to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other designers did with this sketch. I know you will be inspired by their work! Then make your own wonderful creation using the sketch and upload it to their site. I always love to see how you all interpret the sketch! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
