friday...poinsettia tutorial using HC stamps

Hi everyone! I have another flower tutorial to share with you today! This time, it's a poinsettia flower using Heartfelt Creations Perfect Petals Medley Precut Set.


Step 1. From the Heartfelt Creations Perfect Petals Medley Precut Set stamp 9 of each petals.

Step 2. Die cut the petals using the corresponding Heartfelt Creations Perfect Petals Die. Die cut 3 small flowers from the Spellbinders Carnations Creations in the same color.

Step 3. Trim every other petal from the carnation flowers. These will be your poinsettia bases.

Step 4. Using your finders, crease each petal and glue them on each carnation petal.

Step 5. Layer your petals making sure that your petals are staggered. Now your flowers looks more like a poinsettia!

Step 6. For the centers, die cut 6 carnations in white. Using a stylus, cusp each flower upwards.

Step 7. Layer two flowers, staggering the petals and add a rhinestone to the center. Make three of these for the larger poinsettias and one for the smaller poinsettias.

Step 8. If you wish, glimmer mist in red the petals for a shiny finish. Add the white flowers to the center. You can leave the flowers as they are or you can go one step further (scroll down...).

Step 9. Using your Diamond stickles, go over the stamped lines and outline them. This gives the flowers a festive look!

There you have it! A gorgeous and completely handmade by you poinsettia flower! Don't you just love the Heartfelt Creations stamps? They are so versatile! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and can make a few of these flowers for your next Christmas themed layout! Come back this Wednesday and I'll show you what you can do with a dozen or so of these flowers!  :)
