Christmas in July: Heartfelt Creations Snow Kissed Poinsettia
It’s Christmas in July week here at Kathy by Design. How fun! I know a lot of us make our own holiday cards, so I thought it might be helpful to share some holiday inspiration with you and get those creative wheels turning so we can all get our Christmas cards out on time this year. Today, I’m sharing a Snow Kissed Poinsettia wall hanging made with the brand new Sparkling Poinsettia release from Heartfelt Creations. Here’s some info about this wonderful set of stamps, dies and papers.
Rediscover the majesty, serenity and pageantry of Christmas with Heartfelt Creations’ Sparkling Poinsettia Collection. This glorious ensemble of stamps, dies and papers captures the stately splendor of Christmas with a regal color palette of burgundy, evergreen, taupe and cream. Radiant poinsettias take center stage amidst a host of traditional Nativity scenes, twinkling candles, drifting snowflakes, lacy flourishes, exuberant banners and Heartfelt greetings that are worthy of the King of Kings. Six detailed stamp sets echo the glorious images found in the paper collection and two coordinating die sets can be used to create sparkling poinsettias that will never wilt or fade. Chronicle sweet memories of the season, share holiday joy with family and friends, hail the holy babe born in the manger and deck the halls with Sparkling Poinsettia!
If you like poinsettias, you are going to love the Sparkling Poinsettia Dies. I combined the stamps and dies when creating the snow kissed poinsettias in this wall hanging. I have a complete supply list and tutorial below so you can follow along and make your own.
I’m especially fond of the papers in this collection because they make quick work of cardmaking. There are dozens of pre-designed card fronts and sentiments and all you have to do is cut them out and glue them onto your card base. Add your sparkling poinsettias and you are good to go!
I know you are going to love this beautiful Christmas release from Heartfelt Creations. Stay tuned, as I’ll be sharing more Christmas in July projects all month long. And I might just have to throw a little giveaway into the mix, you never know!
Thanks for stopping by!

Use Library Green Archival Ink to stamp 2 sets of both the Large Sparkling Poinsettia and the Sparkling Poinsettia onto white cardstock. Emboss with Clear EP. Die cut. Spray with Art Anthology Spray and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Sponge with Carmine Red Stamp Paint. Tap with Gold Stamp Paint. Once the flowers are dry, stack them together. Use your finger to gently tap Picket Fence Distress Paint onto the creases of the petals to give them a snowy appearance. Sponge the leaves with Library Green Archival Ink, then blend in the Spectrum Noir CT2 ink to shade the leaves. Brush lightly with Glass Bead Glitter. Fill the flower centers with the die cut berries. Use Art Institute glue to add Czech beads to flower centers. Set the flowers aside to dry thoroughly.
Trace around the chipboard shape onto the burgundy background paper. Cut out, distress edges, paint edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Paint and then sponge with Gold Stamp Paint. Trace around the chipboard shape once again, this time onto scrap paper. Fold the paper in half, and trim about 1/2 inch off all the way around the folded shape. Trace this smaller shape onto the grey patterned section of the “Joy to the World” paper from the collection. Distress the edges and then paint the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Paint. Use Memento London Fog Ink to stamp the Sparkling Poinsettia Notes background stamp randomly onto the grey lattice background piece. Then use Library Green Archival Ink to stamp holly swirls around the edges, as shown.
Die cut the Decorative Oval from white cardstock. Back with the burgundy patterned paper from the collection. Place in the center of the chipboard shape, as shown, but do not glue down yet. Fussy cut the poinsettias from the Joy to the World paper and layer them around the Decorative Oval Die, as shown. Glue everything down. Fussy cut the Joy to the World Banner and glue down so that the middle section is raised, as shown in the photo. Cut the journal card from the paper collection. Mat with gold foil cardstock and green foil cardstock, as shown. Use foam dots to secure to the chipboard shape, as shown.
Arrange the flowers and leaves around the chipboard, as shown. Use a hole punch to add ribbon and a fancy bow. Fill the berries in the Holly Swirls Stamp with Christmas Red Stickles. Let Dry.
