Creative Expressions - Golden Poinsettia

Good morning, how are you today?  I am knackered lol, I have just spent a weekend away visiting DT blogging friends down in Eastbourne, spent an evening in Brighton then travelled up to Ally Pally and stayed there for two nights.  I had a fantastic time but I have to admit I'm hurting today, but it was all worth it.  So today is Monday which can only mean it's time for my weekly project for Creative Expressions Blog and we have been working with the amazing Festive Collection dies and stamps.  I can't believe it's just over a year now I have been on the DT and my time shall be up soon, they are having a DT call over on the blog so why not come and work with this amazing company, the call finishes on the 24th September.  As always I shall highlight the products used from Creative Expressions during my step by step.
I would like to enter the following challenges -
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge - Anything Goes
Addicted To Stamps Challenge - Holiday
Crafty Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Suzi's Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything Goes (twist spots and dots)
613 Avenue Challenge - Anything Goes (twist make your own challenge chart)
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

This is the second gold piece, if you can remember last week I told you
that I was doing two projects very similar so then can go either side of a gold
wreath I have :-).

And now for the step by step which is almost the same as last week lol ..............

I used Creative Expressions MDF panel and painted two layers of Cosmic Shimmer
Gold paint on top, when that was dry I layered with Cosmic Shimmer Crackle Glaze.

I then mixed some Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk Paint Warm White with Vanilla to
make a soft cream colour.  I painted over the crackle, I also did some embellishments
but didn't used them.

I painted some Creative Expressions Pearl Gems with the shimmer gold paint.

Next I die cut some card from the Creative Expressions Mosaic Poinsettia Craft Die
and added texture with Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste Gold Pearl.

I then cut out some Creative Expressions Adhesive Sheets and Card with the
Creative Expressions Classic Poinsettia Craft Die.

I added the adhesive sheet to the card and then covered with Cosmic Shimmer
Polished Silk Glitter Sahara Gold

Next I masked off the Creative Expressions Single Stamp Believe and stamped
the BELIEVE part with Archival jet black ink pad and also the bottom half of the
sentiment from Creative Expressions Stamp Set Winter Wonderland.

I used some Studio 490 Embossing Paste Metallic Gold through a Tim Holtz Layering
Stencil Stars.

I stamped the foliage from Creative Expressions Stamp Set Partridge in a Pear Tree
with Ranger Perfect Medium and Cosmic Shimmer Detail Bright Gold embossing powder.

I then stamped the music from Creative Expressions Stamp Set Christmas Sleigh Ride.

I glued the poinsettias onto their glitter backgrounds, edged with 
a Distress Marker Black Soot and curled the leaves with my
finger and built it up with glue.

I added the gold pearl gems from earlier and some Creative Expressions Gilding Wax 
Enchanted Gold.  

Right that's me for today, I'm off to unpack my goodies from Ally Pally, I shall make sure I take some pictures lol.  Thanks for visiting, hope you have a good day.
Happy Creating :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx
