Merry Little Christmas November 2019 Challenge: Anything Goes!

The Merry Little Christmas November 2019 Challenge is live over on the challenge blog, and the theme is “Anything Goes”! For my project today, I used a collab set between Paper Rose x SSS called Poinsettia Border.

It was from this year’s Stamptember release at Simon Says Stamp. Sadly, it sold out shortly after I made this card. But, with a little bit of fancy masking work and fussy cutting, you can use any poinsettia set you already have to get a similar look!

The white cardstock I’m using today is Cougar Super Smooth from It’s great for coloring with Copics and allows the ink to blend nicely.

The marker colors I used are:

  • Poinsettias: R20, R22, R29, YR31, Nuvo Aqua Shimmer in Midas Touch
  • Mistletoe Leaves: G43, G46
  • Mistletoe Berries: YR30
  • Shadow: C1

The sentiment is from the same stamp set. Because the yellow cardstock was textured, I used Hero Hues ink in Onyx and heat embossed with Ranger Detail Powder in Black. That way, I could make sure the image was super black and covered correctly.

After I die cut the edge of the poinsettias, I adhered the white cardstock with foam squares over the Basis Black and Bazzill Pollen layers below. The white space above the poinsettias looked a little plain, so I did a dot design with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Mustard Gold.

It was a bonus that the Nuvo Drops, poinsettia centers, and yellow cardstock almost matched perfectly. Gorgeous, I tell ya.
