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.
