Pretty Poinsettias


August is already in full swing, and it is time for the Happy Little Stampers August Christmas Challenge. The theme, as always, is Anything Goes with a twist. This month, the twist is to use a poinsettia(s) on your project.


The winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the Happy Little Stampers Shop! Check out all the details HERE.

I went with Paper Smooches Poinsettia and Merry Christmas Wise Dies and some SU Designer Paper that has been sleeping in my stash for years. I used Gold Enamel Dots from Happy Little Stampers for the centers of the poinsettias.

December 25, 2017 is only 143 days away. Please head on over the the Happy Little Stampers August Christmas Challenge and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. Come play with us and work on your Christmas/Holiday greetings so you can enjoy the Holidays when they arrive!

I am also playing at:





Kraft background and top left to bottom right placement of image and sentiment.

There’s just something about a Poinsettia on a Christmas card that makes it perfect every time! I think I am going to have to add this die to my collection, because it turned out beautifully! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Christmas Card Challenges. – Amanda DT
