Poinsettia Angels...STAMPlorations December 2018 CUTplorations Challenge

Hello,

A gentle snowfall over the past three days sees our surroundings blanketed in white; the trees are covered in pretty, sparkly frost; the blue of the sky has a hazy sheen...December has definitely arrived. And with it...another round of challenges over at STAMPlorations.

Welcome to STAMPlorations December 2018 CUTplorations Challenge, where we're drawing inspiration from this photo...


If you head to the image source (highly recommend), you'll discover "7 Different Styling Tips with the Poinsettia," that are truly gorgeous.  In this photo, mini poinsettias, in tiny vases, spruce up a Christmas card garland.  Beautiful idea!

For my project today, I focused on, obviously, poinsettias, as well as something decorative to hang on a garland, tree or gift. Yes, I've already showcased this 'style' and image before (during Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event) but...when something bears repeating, far be it from me not to heed the call *grin*

Below: my trio of angels, with poinsettia gowns.  Right now, they're ornaments; I may transition them to fronts of cards or...I may make more 'for' cards and include these as a wee gift.  It's obvious: I'm smitten with this angel die!


That's it from me!  Hope you'll play along with us!
Looking forward to seeing your fabulous translations of this image in the gallery!

CUTplorations Challenge Guidelines can be found HERE (they're super simple!).  AND, if you play along, you're in the running for the Monthly Prizes!

These angels are so sweet, and I love how you've added the poinsettias to their gowns. My sister has been looking for a die like this and I can't wait to tell her about it!! I'll bet she puts one under the tree to herself this year, haha! I can't wait to see what else you do with this lovely angels. Chat soon...company this week and next weekend, but hopefully sometime in between. xo Bev
