Heartfelt Creations November Alumni Hop: Sparkling Poinsettia Christmas Tag
Hello, Friends! It’s time to hop with the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design team. I’m first in line this month, and I’m feeling Christmassy. So I created a Sparkling Poinsettia Christmas Tag to share with you today.
The base is a standard manila tag covered with the newsprint paper in the Sparkling Poinsettia collection. I stamped 3 large poinsettia with Archival Library Green ink, then heat embossed with clear powder. The flowers were stamped plain white cardstock.
I added various red Distress inks to the die cut flowers using a sponge dauber. Then the petals were spritzed with a little water to let the ink blend. I shaped the flowers while they were damp, using the large ball stylus from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit. Next, I stacked the layers together with hot glue. There are 2 large layers and one medium layer on my focal flower. The other large flower was cut in half and tucked beneath to add even more fullness to the flower cluster.
I tapped the leaves with Carmine Red and White Viva Decor 3-D Stamp Paints to give them some shimmer and the look of snow.
A gold doily cut in half adds another layer of shimmer. My focal circle was die cut from the paper collection using a Spellbinder die. I used hot glue to add the Idea-Ology Woodlands Tree and poinsettia charm. The deer charm was painted with Antique Linen Distress paint and hot glued in place to complete the vignette.
Gold ribbon, icy branches, red berries and some Christmas tree stick pins joined the party. How fun!

I’m still learning, too, Sandra. We all are. That’s the wonderful think about creativity: there’s always something new to discover and master!
Beautiful!!! Now would you display this or give it to someone as a ‘card’ ? I’m never sure what to do with tags.
Hi, Helen! I do both. Tags make great little pieces of home decor when tucked into a mantel display or hung from a cabinet knob. People also love to receive them in lieu of cards. They are also fun to add to a holiday plate of cookies or quick bread. People are always happy to receive something that’s handmade with love.
I love the shimmer on the poinsettia-I never knew the paint could do that. Your tag is wonderful and so shiny. Whomever receives this will be overjoyed! Thank you for sharing.
Hi! Love the mixed media elements on your tag! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much, Sue! Mixed media is fun, isn’t it?
So many great inspirations you made with the Sparkling Poinsettia. Oh, I do envy you. This is one collection I don’t own. But I’m going to try to make some poinsettia with sunflower dies. Thanks for your hard work.
That’s a great idea, Eveline! Let me know how it turns out! Thank you!
Stunning tag. Love that is is full of eye catching elements. thanks for sharing.
So beautiful and festive. LOVE IT!
Very pretty tag Kathy. Thanks for sharing.

WOW…how can that be a tag! LOVE every bit! LOVE the bottle brush tree and the gorgeous poinsettia…gorgeous!
This is gorgeous. so many great details.
Oh. My. Goodness!! How darling is this tag?! I love every bit of it Kathy. From the colours chosen, to the ribbon, the stag and … ohhh that wonderful little tree. I shall have to go searching for those because so far, (in the past about 8 years) I haven’t found any at all, here in the UK. (But I haven’t looked for them last year of this – so I’ll go and search).
LOVE this Kathy. Truly GREAT make!
love ~ Cobs. x
Absolutely gorgeous as usual Kathy! Love the way your colored and stacked the Sparkling Poinsettia!
