Chalkboard Poinsettia jingle!


Sleigh bells ring…are you listening…in the lane…snow is glistening… Are you listening to Christmas music yet?  I am!  Love it!   I just had to use the new Jolly Jingle Bells die…love how they look hanging on the Whimsical Flourish die!


LOVE the poppystamps poinsettia die…here I layered up two of the largest petals with three of the leaf dies cut in Memory Box Cranberry and Sage card-stocks.  All the Silver card is Coredinations glitter… I’ll link to everything below.

I cut the Hayden Twigs die in silver…cut them apart and stuck them in here and there around the poinsettia.  I cut and added some poppystamps Garden Sprigs  in silver and Memory Box Dill card-stock too.

Memory Box Vintage Christmas Words stamp is heat embossed on MB Licorice card-stock.

I matted the chalkboard piece with my 1/16th inch Perfect Layers Ruler (link in the sidebar or below) and then adhered it to the MB Kraft A-2 size Notecard with ATG tape.  I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

Oh,  I did cut the Sideshow Ticket die,  cut and emboss it,  out of MB Parchment card-stock and edged it with Walnut Stain and a little bit of Viva Decor Silver Polish.

NOW for some really SWEET NEWS!!!!  NEW Grandson arrived yesterday @ 1 a.m.!!!   Mom, baby and family doing great!  He’s a doll!  7# 12 oz.  RED hair!  woohoo!   You could say I’ve been sidetracked lately! lol  If you were sitting here with me,  you’d see the completely BARE Christmas tree we purchased Saturday! lol  oh, it’s Wednesday already?!  How to keep up, that is the question! lol

Have a wonderful month and I’ll be around… so thankful for your friendships!  I love talking and sharing with you!  Take care!

  10. Oh WOW! This red poinsettia fairly sparkles right off this chalk background. The black certainly enhanced the vividness of this pretty flower. Love it! Thanks for visiting & taking time to leave a comment at my blog. And TFS & hugs.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
