The new Contempo Poinsettia and Stencil set is great for detailed paper-piecing when you have some leisurely crafting time...and it's perfect for quick stenciling when you don't.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a double-stencilled design for the holidays.

Brush or sponge a light layer of Rocket Red Gold Brilliance onto white cardstock.  Rotate the stencil and re-align it with offset petals.  Stencil the center with a very light layer of Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide, then let it airdry.  Stencil it with a second layer of Rocket Red Gold. Dry the ink.

Trim the cardstock with the 3-½" x 4-¾" Rectangle Basics die. Trim the outer edges with a corner rounder.  Cut a circle of the yellow sheet from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad with the ½" Circle Basics die.  Attach it to the poinsettia.

Spray Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz onto white cardstock.  Dry the ink, then cut the Contempo Poinsettia.  Trim the top, bottom and left edges with the 5-¼" x 4" Rectangle Basics die. Trim the outer edges with a corner rounder.

Attach the stencilled cardstock to the Contempo Poinsettia diecut just along the top, bottom and left edges of the diecut.  Don't adhere the poinsettia outline or center - let them 'float' over the stencilled design.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Yuletide Moments Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Rocket Red Gold.  Cut it with the 1-½" Circle Basics die.

Cut, score and fold a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") and round the corners.  Attach the diecuts - use foamtape for the greeting.  Add Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.

Contempo Poinsettia is very versatile - use it to also pressure-emboss watercolor paper or heavy cardstock, or quickly cut petals for paper-piecing.  Use the petals as leaves too!  

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend.  See you in December.  December!

Very very pretty card and its a brilliant design.

Lovely card and a bit unique too! But OMG, that stencil/die set is way tooooooo EXPENSIVE!

I love this beautiful card, Jean! To stencil the design behind the die cut is such a great idea. I've had fun making this card but unfortunately I mislaid my stencil after the first five so I ended up cutting my own to finish the set. Rose gold, purples, blues: I had so much fun devising color combinations. Thank you so much for the inspiration!
