Your Creative Connection #YCC117: Poinsettia Dies

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC117.  Our theme today is: Dies to Die For

Your Creative Connection - a bi-monthly tour showcasing Stampin' Up! product

As I've been playing with the Poinsettia Place Suite lately, it was a natural choice to select the Poinsettia Dies for my project today.

It's hard to see in the photo, but the petals have embossed lines on them.  

At first glance at the dies, I was concerned about the process for cutting and embossing.  Do I have to cut first, then emboss afterwards?  The answer is no!  They cut and emboss at the same time.   See tips below.

DOstamping Tips for Poinsetta Dies:

  1. Place all 7 dies on a 5-1/2" square of cardstock.  Nest the matching "emboss" dies inside the large shape dies. 
  2. I was excited to cut/embossed all four petal sizes at the same time.  Phfew - what a time saver!
  3. Adhere flowers together with Stampin' Seal &/or Mini Glue Dots.
  4. Adhere Beaded Pearls to the center with Mini Glue Dots.
