Frozen Window Poinsettia
With the new Frozen Window stamp by Tiny Harts you can create the effect of a frozen window. Julie used it to create this amazing background, but she also stamped the poinsettia, making it look like the veins of the leaves.
Using the Frozen Window stamp and Versamark Watermark Ink pad stamp all over a piece of white A4 card. Sprinkle with white opaque embossing powder and heat emboss until all the powder has melted. Spray the A4 sheet with Distress Oxide colours until you are happy with the coverage and then spritz with water to move the ink about. Spray some Tarnished Brass Distress Spray around the sheet and dab off any excess with paper towel. Leave to dry or using the embossing tool to dry the card.
Cut a square from the embossed sheet to fit the card blank, ink the edges with brown ink then mat onto blue cardstock and fix to the card blank. Die cut the poinsettia from the remainder of the embossed sheet, inking the edges again, and layer the pieces together.
Die cut the circle die in both white and blue card, and set aside the blue circle edge. Cover the inner piece of the white die cut circle by stamping the pine cone branch in brown ink.
Position the blue circle rim to the right-hand side of card and stick in place, along with the inner piece. Place the poinsettia flower piece to the left of the circle, and add a die cut bird in blue card. Stamp sentiment onto white card, cut a fishtail in one end, and cut a similar banner in blue card. Ink the edges of both banner pieces and fix across the centre of the pine cone circle.
