Poinsettia Magic.

This card came about when I read the challenge from the CAS Stencil Challenge for October, which is to include patterned paper.

I do not have huge amounts of patterned paper, as I rarely buy it unless there is a reason I need it. But I do have a pad of Christmas paper that I have had for awhile.

Happily I also have stencils from the latest release of A Colorful Life Designs using Poinsettia Bling for today’s card.

First I die cut a piece of the patterned paper using my Penny Black die and set it aside.

Using my Make Art Stay-tion and on Neenah cardstock I stencilled using Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks and on the patterned paper I used the same colours and added Picked Raspberry to the leaves.

It is hard to see in the picture, but on the patterned paper stencil I added Mango Mimosa Nuvo Aqua Flow to the flowers in the centre and Nuvo Aqua Shimmer, which I also partially added to the first layer of leaves.

In my Mini Misti I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne.

To finish up I added fun foam to the back of the patterned piece and attached to my card base, matching up the stencilling.

This was a fun card to make, and I think I will probably make another. I am entering this card in the CAS Stencil Challenge.
