Joy Layout by Heather Rubert

Wednesday, August 23, 2023

Welcome, friends! It’s Heather Rubert back on Paige's blog and I’ve got another Christmas layout to share! This time I used one of the Acrylic Stamps from Sugarplum Wishes and Paige’s Joy Joy Joy cut file to make a funny, festive page.
The main feature of the page is a stamped and watercolored poinsettia wreath. I took the Acrylic Stamps and I stamped two full sheets of poinsettias onto smooth white cardstock. I used waterproof black ink to make sure my outline wouldn’t get washed away during the coloring process. Then I got to watercoloring, using a combination of plain watercolors and Lindy’s Gang magical powders (I used the colors Pretty in Pink, Salt Water Taffy, and Berliner Filling Fuschia). I love the sparkle added to the flowers! I cut a large circle from dark green cardstock and backed it with white cardstock. Next I fussy cut all those poinsettias and arranged them in a wreath design around the hole in the green cardstock. For an extra pop of pink, I cut the Joy Joy Joy cut file from the pink plaid paper in the Sugarplum Wishes 6x8 Paper Pad. The whole cut file wouldn’t fit on the page, so I cut off just one “JOY” and topped it off with a bow from the Ephemera Die Cuts. For the funny subtitle “...OR NOT” I used just green letters from the Mini Thickers to coordinate with the rest of the page. A couple more embellishments and white acrylic paint splatters finished up the layout!
I had so much fun playing with the Sugarplum Wishes Acrylic Stamps. I hope you feel inspired to check out Sugarplum Wishes and be sure to check out her collection of Christmas cut files for some awesome inspiration! Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!
