IBS Poinsettia Light Block

Happy Friday! 

Today on the Inspired by Stamping Blog we are featuring Christmas Decor. For my festive project, I used the Poinsettia and Big Holidays stamp sets. Take a peek at my light block:


This was my first time creating a light block and I was so pleased with it that I will be making a few more for gifts! Let’s take a closer look:


I started by cutting the vellum to size (6¼ x 6¼) and rounding the corners. The center poinsettia, from the Poinsettia stamp set, was stamped in Versamark and embossing in Gold. Next, I masked the poinsettia and stamped/embossed the other two on either side. The leaves were embossed in green and the sentiment, from Big Holidays, in red. I used a Blender Pen and Red Ink to color in the poinsettias.

To attach the vellum to the glass block, I placed glue dots on the four corners, in the centers of the poinsettias, and on the tip of the leaves where I wanted to place the ‘red berry.’ Once the vellum was adhered, I added the rhinestones—they look pretty and they hide where the glue dots were ‘shining through!’

I used a strand of 20 lights and tulle to fill the block.

Here is a close-up of the gorgeous poinsettias:


I hope you have been inspired by my project. Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see what Leah is sharing along with me today.

I love this-poinsettias are a winter favorite for me. You have inspired me to make some for Christmas gifts. Thank You! I'm wondering, did you put the same image on the back of the block? Lisa, you did an awesome job! Now, why didn't I think of this???
