Welcome to the OSAT (One Stamp at a Time) Blog Hop for November. I don't have any silver bells or sea shells, so I'm just going with silver.
I've seen several poinsettias made using the leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. So, I thought it was time to try it for myself.
As I said, I'm going silver. As a friend of mine says, this card is a little labor intensive. Begin with a card base of Thick Whisper White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4 and fold.
For the background, run a piece of Silver foil measuring 1 1/2 x 4 through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. For the bottom, stamp a 2 1/2 x 4 Whisper White with the Buffalo Check background stamp. Use Versamark and the Stamparatus. I needed to ink up the stamp a couple times and stamp. Press with even pressure across the plate. I did use one of the sheets from the Small Grid Paper. That's one of the new Stamparatus accessory items. Attach the white card stock to the grid paper and leave it on the sheet while you emboss so you can hold on. Cover with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat. Add these layers to the base.
Run a length of the Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon. Tape to the card under where the flower will be so that it does not show. Using my bow maker, I made a double bow to add later.
On Whisper White stamp 6 large leaves and 6 small leaves in Versamark and emboss in silver. Cut these out using the Nature's Roots Framelits. Curl the leaves using a Bone Folder. Put a glue dot at the stem tip of each leaf and a double stack of dimensionals near the other. Add the two that would be opposite each other first and then fill in 2 on each side. The glue dot ends are stacked on each other. Now do the same with the small leaves over the first layer. Add Silver Metallic Pearls in the center.
For the leaves, stamp Whisper White with Shaped Spruce. Use the small leaves. Cut out. Coat each leaf with Wink Of Stella. Curl with the Bone Folder. Add to the flower.
Add the bow with a glue dot.
The saying is from Wishing You Well. Emboss in silver and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
It's a lot of work, but I do love the poinsettias made using the Rooted in Nature bundle. Now for the Silver Gable Box.
Cover the front and back panels of the box with more of the Buffalo check silver embossed paper. Each side measures just under 2 x 4. For the front slanted panel, run more Silver Foil through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis folder. On the back trace the panel piece with a pencil and cut to fit.
Run more of the Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the box taping under the flower. Make another double bow.
For the flower, make 6 of the smaller leaves. Stamp in Versamark and emboss with silver emossing powder. Cut out and curl with the Bone Folder. Add to the box with a glue dot at the stem end of each leaf as on the card. Add the Silver Metallic Pearls. Make the Shaded Spruce leaves as for the card. Don't forget the Wink of Stella!
The Merry Christmas is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set. Emboss with silver and fussy cut. Add to the card.
These make a lovely pair.
