Artsystamper Challenge Time

Hello my friends!

It's time for challenge #2 over on the Artsystamper Challenge  for Artsystamper Digitals by Beverly Cole.  We have a new challenge on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month and we would love to have you come join in the fun!

Today's theme is ...


Now remember, it's NOT required that you use Bev's amazing images to join in the challenge (of course if you have them we'd love to see them).  But, the very talented design team will be not only following the theme but will be using Bev's paper, images, etc. for their creations.

Here's what I have to share using one of the beautiful holiday papers . . .

The set I've used on today's card is the lovely
Poinsettia Pair Digital Stamp & Paper Set

Here are the steps I took to create my card ...

Using Word10 I created my entire background ... starting with the paper design, then added the poinsettia and lastly the words.
Next I removed the background paper from my file and printed out just the poinsettia and words onto glossy photo paper twice.

I fussy cut the first poinsettia in it's entirety.  I used dimension tape to attach it over top of the poinsettia that is in the center of my background paper.
Then on my second glossy print, I cut out the poinsettia flower ONLY and once again popped it up atop my focus flower.  This added beautiful shine and dimension to my focus poinsettia.

The winner of our challenges will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop.  Beverly Cole's selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-colored images for easy, last minute cards.  Why not take a moment and check out what she has in the store!!

I hope you will hop on over to the Artsystamper Digitals Challenge Blog and enter!
