1 Poinsettia Striplet Die, 3 Different Ways, BLOG CANDY Reminder

Hello Crafters and happy Saturday!  Hope you're having an amazing weekend!  I'm here to share 3 sparkly Christmas projects that Ive created using the Creative Expressions 2015 Festive Collection Poinsettia Striplet die and 3 different Poinsettia dies by Sue Wilson. 

Here they are. CHECK OUT how ONE Striplet Die created 3 completely different looks...

Project 1
The fabulous Poinsettia Striplet die was used for a sparkling Christmas Tag
I added a 'Frames and Tags Pierced Flag' banner to my tag (for holding my sentiment). It is multi-layered for strength. My Poinsettia is cut with the 2014 Festive Collection Classic Poinsettias Dies, dry embossed and glittered for texture.  I've added a silk ribbon (for tying this fun Black and White tag to a gift). It's finished off with sparkly Silver Pearls.
      Festive Collection

Project 2
The Poinsettia Striplet die was again used for creating a lovely Background look on this glittered Happy Holidays Card. The Flower has been glittered with Martha Stewart Ultrafine white Glitter for added sparkle and texture.
This card is very sparkly IRL, especially with the GOLD and Glittered Red & Green Adhesive Papers. The Striplet cuts are set side by side but twice layered for dimension with green peeking out underneath. The Sentiment banner was cut with the Frames and Tags Pierced Flags dies and is tucked under the flower to unify the look. The dimensional Poinsettia was created with the 2014 Festive Collection Classic Poinsettia and the 2015 Open Petals Poinsettias then glittered for sparkle and topped with Gold Floral Wrap and Gold Pearls as my finishing touches.

 Project 3
The Striplet die was also used as a decorative border on this card. I think it adds so much detail to this Season's Greetings, don't you?
All of the Sentiments are from a NEW Holiday Clear stamp set by MSE.

These Festive projects were easy to put together as these fabulous dies do most of the work for you!  The Poinsettias look great when layered and shaped (with side of a pen or pencil) for dimension, giving your projects depth. Aren't these neat? What do you think?
