SCS Technique Challenge 193 Decorative Circles

When I saw the technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers I knew I couldn't put my stamps up just yet. After watching the amazing tutorial Making Decorative Circles with Corner Punches by Becca Feeken, I knew I would be stamping more poinsettias.

Another delightful thing I discovered about 3 Step Poinsettia by Kitchen Sink Stamps is that you can vary the size and shape of each blossom by simply adding more leaves in red before adding the green ones! What fun!!

This holiday card has a 5 inch square base.

Stamps - All images are from 3 Step Poinsettia by Kitchen Sink Stamps.
