Create Paper Poinsettias with Memento Ink and Dewlets

Dewlet Etched Metal Dies are perfect to use with Dew Drop Inkpads. Simply stamp the droplet shapes then align and cut the dies using any die cut machine. There are many options with the shape to play and experiment. Once I started playing with the dies, I found myself creating two very different cards. Simply by flipping the droplet shapes allows you to create poinsettias, leaves, and even dragonflies.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Stamp each stamp pad onto white cardstock. Punch out the petals by using the Dewlet dies and a die cut machine.


Step 2

Ink around each petal for dimension, then use a stylus to give the petals dimension.


Step 3

Create the background by inking a large background stamp with white ink then emboss with clear embossing powder to create a tone-on-tone effect. Using a jumbo dauber, ink around the panel with Memento in Love Letter, then edge with Brilliance in Thyme.


Step 4

Adhere the stamped panel to a kraft card. Create the poinsettia by assembling the petals on the card. Place two leaves behind the poinsettia. Use irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Lady Bug to add dimension to the poinsettia petals. Stamp a sentiment with VersaFine Clair in Pinecone, edge with Memento in Love Letter and mat with cardstock. Add to the card with foam adhesives.


Step 5

Add drops of irRESISTIble Pico Embellisher in Lady Bug on opposite corners of the card.


Step 6

For the dragonfly card, create a kraft card and add a panel of striped paper. Using Brilliance in Sky Blue ink, stamp onto white cardstock. Emboss with Embossing Powder in Clear and heat set. Die cut each and emboss with an embossing folder. Use On Point Glue to adhere the tips of 4 petals to the card creating a dragonfly. Use On Point Glue to adhere a row of dew drops for the body. Add drops of Shimmer irRESISTIble to the corners. Stamp phrase with Pinecone Ink. Cut into a pennant shape, made with cardstock. Add to card with foam adhesives.
