Reason for the Season and Fab Friday 91

The design team over at Fab Friday have a great sketch challenge going on.  When I saw my friend Brian King card for this challenge, I know I had to try to recreate it!  On my desk had been sitting a poinsettia that I made from watercolor paper.  All week, I had been staring at the poinsettia wondering what to do with it.  Well, I decided to use it as the focal point to recreate this sketch.  Here is the Fab Friday Sketch.  I hope that you hop over to Fab Friday and check out all the cards by the design team.



I have had the Reason for The Season stamp set and the Festive Flower Builder Punch for a while now. Though, I am just now really beginning to use it.  I love how easy it is to create a flower that is beautiful in just a few steps.  I did thought have to watch the video on how to build the flowers to get it just right.  My first attempt was quite a special spectacle……. After watching the video it was fun and easy.  I made several poinsettia just for the fun of it one afternoon…

You are going to love-making these flowers… It is quite addictive…Fab Friday 91 with Festive Flower
Here are a few details:

  • The flowers are stamped with Cherry Cobbler in on watercolor paper.  Then spritz with Wink of Stella.  And set aside to dry
  • After the flowers are dried I punched each one out using the festive flower builder punch and assembled the flower.
  • Then I built my background following the Fab Friday Sketch. (via Brian King’s Card)
  • The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black and is from the Wondrous Wreath Stamp set
  •  The paper used is Emerald Envy, Very Vanilla, and This Christmas Designer Series Paper
