* 1 Not just for Christmas!

Elaine here with my first post for the ONE STAMP event - Lynnda has challenged us, herself and anyone else who wants to join in to make as many projects as you can with the one Oak House Studio stamp - the POINSETTIA. I lie because there are actually 2 - a big one and a smaller one.  Hey Elaine there are three poinsettia stamps, I eventually released a larger version, similar to the size I originally drew the image. I did it for my own indulgence really but I have released it for everyone. LYNNDA.

Anyway first up are a set of gift tags - some Christmassy but some not. Whilst poinsettias are considered Christmas flowers, they don't have to be and they look great coloured in all colours not just green and red!!

I started off by spraying some card - pale blue with Peacock Green, Jubilee Blue and Pearly Silver Ink in a Bottle, red card with Glorious Gold and then some white card with Citrus Yellow and a bit of Citrus Orange. I used my Sizzix Framelits to cut the ovals and just got stamping, embossing and colouring. All the sentiment stamps, embossing powders (clear, gold, silver and midnight sparkle) and inks (Forest Green) are Oak House Studio too. Here's a close up to show all the detail!

So as you can see it's a versatile stamp!  Keep checking back here and on the One Stamp facebook page for more inspiration over the next 24hrs.
