Ever since the Annual Catalog debuted, I had my eye on the Stylish Christmas stamp set.  I love the Distinktive design stamp sets for how easy it is to add shaded texture in one single stamp.  Poinsettia’s are a lovely symbol for me of the holiday season.  I remember as a child my mother always having a Poinsettia in the house.  And then we would get them for church and create beautiful multi-colored displays with different colored pointsettia’s with my Grandma Violet who was an amazing gardener.  I have been thinking of my mom a lot lately.  Sure wish she was still alive and I could be sharing my life with her now.

Here you can more closely see the detail in this poinsettia with the distinktive design.  The metallic pearls certainly add a perfect finishing touch.

Here is another version.  This one is an easy Z fold that adds that extra little touch of pizzazz.  Gotta love adding a little (especially easy) touch of special.  The Festive Farmhouse designer series paper certainly adds that homemade feel touch as well.

Check out how wonderfully the greetings in this stamp set play off each other.  Such a heartfelt greeting on the front of this card.  Yes, I fussy cut the poinsettia out – but it is a super easy fussy cut.  You could easily cut out a bunch of these while watching your favorite TV show in the evening.
