Introducing Peaceful Poinsettia

Melissa's headshot Today I am proud to introduce a new set from Melissa Bickford,
entitled Peaceful Poinsettia.  This set gives you several different
options with different sizes and orientations of poinsettia blooms. 
With this variety you can apply your favorite techniques to this set,
whether it be paper piecing, coloring, or quick & simple full-color

The details.

  • Peaceful Poinsettia will be available for purchase on September 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Peaceful Poinsettia contains a total of 19 images (14 images, 1 background building strip and 4 sentiments)

As I said in my introduction in the opening post above, I am keeping it simple this month and showcasing simple designs that can be executed beautifully by any stamper.  More importantly, the supplies are limited making them economical and they require very few steps so they will come together quickly and efficiently.  My favorite kind of holiday projects!  

Poinsettia card

(click above photo for larger view)

To start, here's a super simple project using a bit of an unconventional holiday color scheme, Melon Berry & Spring Moss.

Focal point

To start, I cut a piece of Rustic Cream carstock to measure 4-3/4" by 3-1/2".  I stamped three poinsettias in the upper left corner and one in the lower right.  A bit of greenery was added using Spring Moss ink.  The sentiment (from Dawn's new Signature Christmas set) was added last in Dark Chocolate ink.

Rounded corners

The two left corners were rounded with a corner rounder punch, as well as a bit of bling added to the center of each poinsettia.


The card base was created from our kraft cardstock, cut to 4-1/4" by 11", scored in half at 5-1/2".  After adhering the focal point created above, to the cover of the kraft card, it's time to create a fun spine.  I simply cut a strip of Spring Moss cardstock measuring 2-1/2" x 4-1/4", scored in half length wise @ 1-1/4".  Stamp polka dots (from Polka Dot Basics II) twice with Vintage Cream ink (once on either side of the score line so you don't have to be exact when lining them up).  Trim long edges with scalloped scissors. The spine is adhered so that it can be seen on the front & back of the card, giving it a really nice polished look.

Card interior

The interior of the card carries over some of the details from the cover.  The interior Rustic Cream block measures 4" x 3-1/4".  I stamped the a poinsettia & leaf detail in the upper corner and added a sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettia set itself in Dark Chocolate ink.  A great (and easy) way to complete the inside of the card.


The matching Rustic Cream A2 envelope was stamped with same poinsettia detail in the lower left corner.  That special touch with really grab the recipient's attention when they get ready to open their mail!


Not only are these cards simple to make, they use very little supplies, costing a mere 48-cents each to make (including the elegant coordinating envelope!).  It will certainly be hard to beat that!

Seasons greetings card

Next is another simple card that features a bit of a bolder color scheme, Ripe Avocado & Enchanted Evening.

Ribbon loop

The card base is a standard A2 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored @ 4-1/4"),  A Ripe Avocado layer measuring 5" x 3-3/4" is stamped using Versamark ink and Polka Dot Basics II.  A strip of Enchanted Evening ribbon is adhered across this layer with the ends folded to the back, before adhering to the Enchanted Evening card cover.  An extra layer of the ribbon is added with the ends tucked under to form a loop as an added detail, but you could forgo that step if you like.

Seasons greetings focal point

The focal point image is made up of a series of image building images that Melissa incorporated into this set.  It started with the "Season's Greetings" image stamped in Rip Avocado.  The space between the first and second line is designed to perfectly coordinate with this little trio of poinsettias.  I stamped them in Enchanted Evening, with a little dot of Smokey Shadow in the center done with a Copic Marker.  Last, but not least, I adhered a small clear dome sticker (available in our store beginning September 15th) on top of the center flower.  I love the detail this added while still being perfectly mail friendly.

Card interior

The interior uses a solid circle version of the poinsettia inked in Enchanted Evening.  A border from Borders & Corners: Circles stamped in Ripe Avocado frames it out.  The sentiment, stamped with Ripe Avocado as well, is found in our Holiday Wishes stamp set.  All of this was stamped on a 4" x 5-1/4" block of our famous Vintage Cream cardstock and adhered inside.


The matching Vintage Cream A2 envelope is stamped on the flap this time, using the same set of images that was used on the interior of the card.


This card came in just a bit higher than the first, 54-cents each, but still just as much of a bargain!

The last projects I have to share with you aren't necessarily holiday projects, but they showcase the versatility of Peaceful Poinsettia and how it can be used for all four of the seasons.

Line up

(click above photo for larger view)

While poinsettias are usually only used in conjunction with Christmas projects, Melissa's main floral accent is neutral enough that by just changing out the colors, it can be used for other occasions as well.  For my collection today, I decided to illustrate the four seasons.  To help me execute my color goals, I decided to use the outline poinsettia paired with Copic markers.

Winter in Pure Poppy (and another peek at Dawn's new Signature Christmas set!)

Autumn in Orange Zest.

Spring in Raspberry Fizz.

Summer in Ocean Tides.


All of these were so simple to make.  Just a bit of Copic coloring on Kraft cardstock, followed by a few touches with a white gel pen.  Super easy and fast!

    This has been my most fave set of the release this month but because I don’t color, I was a little afraid that I wouldn’t be able to stamp the pointsettias in one color and then do something different with the center. It looks like it may be 2 pieces and/or you have some open centers to put some bling or go for a country feel with a button even. I love that last set with the different seasons; that would be a fantastic, affordable Christmas gift!

  • 81
    Carol (HB) says:

  • 102
    Titta says:

    I honestly can’t choose a favorite among these cards, I like them all. The versatility of this set is very promising! I’m partial to poinsettias anyway, but as you said, these images seem generic enough to be used for non-Christmas cards as well. This is definitely going on my wishlist.

  • 103
    Debbie says:

    Melissa has done it again – fabulous set! Love the colors used in the first card!

  • 104
    annawas says:

  • 105

    You all have such amazing talent. The stamps that you showcased today are really quite simple, but still manage to take my breath away. The stamps just have a flow and a style to them that make them stand amongst all the other companies. And the cards that are designed with them…there are no words!!! I think the poinsettia set will be the centerpiece of my Christmas cards!

    I truly love all the projects you showed today, but I think my favorite was the last one where you used the same sketch/design in different colors. I always like that for some reason. It’s a beautiful set for sure.

    You’ve done it again – another must-have set! We host a holiday party every year for my DH’s direct reports and thought I am in love with all things Christmas, the invitations must be HOLIDAY. I think Melissa’s set might be perfect for our invitations! I think I may take your last example turn it longways and use the large poinsettia as the topper of a 4×9 invitation (I’d love to see you sell envelopes for that size). Simple and elegant.

    I would definitely like to use this set to create some of my holiday cards this year. Love the mixture of the traditional (poinsettia) with non-traditonal colors (Melon Berry and Sping Moss).

    Tammy says:

    I’m loving everything I have seen so far with the poinsettia set. I own all of Melissa’s sets so I know this one will be a must for me as well. I really liked the color combos you used today. Looking forward to the rest of the peeks.

    I love poinsettias! I even use Poinsettia wrapping paper so everything matches in my home. I love going to church and looking at the big tree that is made from using Poinsettias. Yeah, love this stamp set so much! It’s perfect for so many things – not just Christmas. Very creative and lovely!

  • 262

    MeShellaBella (aka Michelle) says:

    I’m loving the very first card you made. It’s a very “soft” version of Christmas. And I’ve always loved the pink poinsettias I’ve seen in my Mom’s Christmas decorations. She uses them because they match her living room and they make it beautiful and soft. Another beautiful set by Melissa! πŸ˜€

  • 283
    Katie says:

    WOW! All of these samples are simply beautiful but my faves are the cards for the different seasons. I never would have thought of that and it shows how versatile this stamp set truly is. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

    Your first card is exquisite! I can totally see making something like that!

  • 286
    Michelle E. says:

    Great cards! I love the kraft card. And how I would love to do cards with my own handwriting. It gives it that personal touch. But mine is not so great. Now with this handwriting sentiments set you can add that personal touch. Fabulous colors!…You’ve done it again. :O)

  • 287

    Lori H says:

    You completely addressed my desire to make simpler cards this year, but still have them look stunning. I really loved the Ripe Avocado and Enchanted Evening color combo – so elegant!. I also appreciate the “other season” ideas. This set looks to be another winner from Melissa!

    Isabel Z says:

    What caught my eye was the use of nontraditional colors. I really like the finished look and will be incorporating this into my Christmas card making this year. I also love that the image can be used for other seasons so that the stamp set doesn’t sit on my stamp shelf waiting for a once a year use–that would be too sad.

  • 302
    Emily W. says:

    Oh, I just LOVE the top card! I would totally make that christmas card but I just love the layout… I might make some all purpose cards following that setup!

    Katie M says:

    Wow! My favorite one is the first one. The colors are very “me”, but I also love that they aren’t the standard Christmas colors. I really love poinsettias and think these are beautiful. I make so many Christmas cards to send that these would be fairly simple yet still have a wow factor for the recipient. Love them!

  • 306

  • 308
    Kelly Fehr says:

    Love the simple images, allows for so much more personal expression. Thanks for the Christmas card ideas, I like them both, but would have to say poinsetta is my first choice.

  • 326
    Sally says:

    These are great cards. They remind me how elegant and sophisticated cards can be even when the production is simple. With all the papers, colors, embellies…I loose sight of how to be successful on a limited budget and with limited supplies. If anything, it is causing me to get bogged down in design and loose my creative mojo. Thanks for the aha! moment.

  • 327
    Marge R. says:

    Oh, I can see this set will make some very classy, yet inexpensive Christmas cards, and that it could so easily be VERY versatile! Looking very much like a “must have”; sooooo excited to see all the rest!!!

    Kim Ross says:

    All these cards are beautiful! Can’t wait until the set is revealed. I’m sure it’ll make it onto my wish list. My favorite card was the first one, and it’s because of the spine wrap. I love that look!

  • 329

    I love all of the cards, but I think the soft colors of the first one caught my eye the most. Love the idea of using the stamp on the inside of the card and on the envelope. Also really liked the “spine” idea. Great color combos on the last set of 4.

  • 361
    Colleen says:

    This set, along witht he peeks for the other sets, have me absolutely itching to create homemade Christmas cards this year!!
    I’m wondering if the blocks from Sign Language will fit inside the “Season’s Greetings” builder stamp. That would be so cute with the little mittens and package and snowflake and such.

    Poinsettias at Christmas is a must in my house. I love the new stamp set, and Dawn’s sentiment set is gorgeous. I really like your first card showcased. I love how you carried the green border onto the back of the card and how you simply, yet perfectly, carried your them on to the inside of the card as well.

    Barbara Howell says:

    I love your first project today. It made me think that I need Peaceful Poinsettia for my Christmas cards this year. All of your projects are beautiful though. Thanks for sharing all your creativity and for the chance to win these sets.

  • 403
    Sharon D says:

    I love, love, love both of these sets! The poinsettia is so elegant, and Dawn’s handwriting is so perfect. I love the top card, with the paler pinks and greens–and the polka-dotted spine! You’re so inspiring, as always, Nichole!

  • 404
    Lynn R says:

    I really love how simple these cards are! I know I don’t have time to make elaborate cards to send at Christmas…these are just the thing! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  • 405

    I absolutely love the seasons greetings card using avocado and navy. I love using ribbon on my cards, but have issues with it mailing. Wrapping it around the avocado piece gives it that bit of something extra, but without all the bulk for mailing. And I love the cost breakdown you gave! A beautiful homemade card does not have to be costly!

  • 407
    Roxanne says:

    I love the simple, repeatable, and economic designs on the samples. It sure helps when you have 80 cards to make (or more!) One of the details I like about this set are the variety of coordinating images and especially the image with the words that coordinate with the line of 3 small poinsetta’s. A great concept I’ve enjoyed in other sets. Thanks for a great prize pack offering. I love this company!!!

  • 408
    Steph W. says:

    I love these cards and this set!

    I think it is really nice for you to continually give us info on how to make the cards and their costs. It really does help when you are looking at making 150 Christmas cards.

    I really love those cards with the Kraft paper for all seasons too. Great idea and wanted to ask if that is just copics colored right on the Kraft? I just can’t believe how well they cover the Kraft! Looks wonderful. Would love to make a bunch of these cards.

    Thank you for the chance to win!

    wow, looking forward to this release! I do enjoy the pointsettia, especially since you could layer it and have it be dimensional, but not too bulky! Also love the sentiments! You always have wonderful sentiments. The holiday-themed sentiments seem that they would say it all! Thanks for the chance at wonderful goodies and good luck with the release!

  • 452

    You’re right – clean and simple is IN. I’ve been somewhat disappointed that the magazines don’t feature this style as much, but are showing many more shabby chic/fussy cards. THANK YOU for reminding us that simple CAN be beautiful!!!

    Of course I love them all but if you’re going to make me pick just one then I would have to say the ‘Seasons Greetings’ design. It is so elegant and crisp and clean and I just love thatunexpected colour scheme. Can’t wait for the big reveal (as usual). Thanks Nichole.

    It’s hard to pick one favorite as all your samples are beautiful! I guess the color combination of the “seasons greetings” card most caught my eye. Can’t wait to try this new set.

  • 481

    Every time I think “maybe I won’t love everything from Papertrey this month,” y’all come out with your samples and make me want everything. I know that’s the point, lol! But this looks like something I might just have to have. And I love how you showed the versatility of the set with other colors and holidays. Really cute!

  • 482
    Penny J. says:

    Nichole, your cards are beautiful as always. I love the non-traditional colors along with the simplicity of them all.

    First of all, you had my very favorite Christmas song at the beginning of your blog! I like the last set that shows the different seasons, just because I love being able to use a stamp set for multiple occasions. But, I love the Season’s Greetings card…I absolutely love the inside of the card – it really put a finishing touch on the card! Can’t wait to see the whole set!

  • 485
    Chrissy Lux says:

    Of course, I liked all the samples today! πŸ™‚ However, I really like the last set of cards in the different colors and with different sentiments. Not only does it show the versatility of the image, it also showed how easy it would be to crank out a few extra cards in that same layout to have some “all occasion” card sets to give as gifts!

    Lee Anne says:

    My mother had poinsettias throughout the house each Christmas as I was growing up. Since she passed, my dad sends me a poinsettia every year for my December birthday to remember her. This would be a great set for me to use to make cards for those people that knew and loved my mother. I like how you showed the versatility in the set, but I’ll probably just save it for Christmas use to remember her as I make cards. She is on my mind this month since her birthday is next week. Thanks for the great chance to win and the great memories you have started.

  • 499
    Hilde says:

    A beautiful set! There is such versatility built into it. I love the coordination when mixing elements for card, envelope, etc. I am also one who loves to use unusual color combos for Christmas cards. One year, (before I found Papertrey) I mixed bright pink, red, and bright orange on my Christmas cards. They were a big hit! So this year, I am thinking Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, and Poppy as an encore!

    Maria M. says:

    All the cards are fabulouso but I think I would find myself making the 1st card with the unconventional color schemed poinsetta. I love the design elements used within the card as well as out. I usually only focus on the front of the card but it now gives me inspiration to also think about the inside.

    So excited! I love this time of year when the hustle of getting holiday crafts done in time to send starts to be put in motion! How can I choose one of the cards today? They are ALL so gorgeous….the first is perfect to send to my grandmother, the second to some of my male-type cousins! and gee the last cards are perfect just about any time! AND OH MY, I do love the clear plastic circles (and squares) to highlight details. THANKS for the start of another great release!

  • 614
    pltaylor says:

    Just when I thought I had all the stamp sets I would ever need, you introduce the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set. I feel sure it will become part of my Papertrey collection. The variety of uses is very impressive.

  • 615
    Jo R. says:

    I love the striking simplicity of the last set of cards you made. But my favourite is the first card. The little elements like the rounded corners, modern colour scheme, scallops, polka dots and a bit of bling look stunning but could easily be mass produced.

  • 616
    Malyssa says:

    Christmas!!!!!!!! My absolute favorite time of year. This stamp set is something my grandma would absolutely love!!!! She LOVES poinsettias and went so far as to buy poinsettia fabric and made ‘christmas curtains’ years ago, (much to my grandpa’s chagrin!) that she still hangs to this day. Since we all have dogs, the ‘christmas curtains’ are our poinsettia fix for the season!

  • 626
    Kim says:

    Awesome how a simple change of color totally changes the feel of the cards. I really like the ocean/teal colored card — feels very soothing.

  • 627

    Wow – I really like this poinsettia stamp set and I’m not big on Christmas floral. It has an elegance to it that’s really pretty. I think I would most likely make the first card – I like how the floral combines with the polka-dot. It was simple, elegant and pretty. Thanks for the ideas – I love your focus on keeping it simple as we prep for Christmas this year. And thanks for the fun give-away!

    Just gorgeous! I love the first card the most. At Christmas I send a bunch of cards to my Nan so she can send them out to her friends. I often find myself having to tailor my designs to her style which can be a little different from my own. I certainly love your first card (and the others of course!!) and I know that my Nan would too!

    I also love what you did with the spine. Hope you don’t mind if I borrow that idea.

  • 667
    Tasha says:

    I love the first project. Probably because it combines a flower, Christmas and bling. Three of my favorite things!

    It’s so thoughtful of you to offer simple sample cards which are more in line with what the readers would be likely to duplicate.

    Gosh – I hafta, no, I NEED to win one of these times. Every month I promise myself I won’t spend so much at PTI. All of the designer’s sneak peeks are wonderful, but yours Nichole, sell me every time. I don’t even need new Christmas season stamps. Have plenty of those already. But your choice of colors and the elegance of your designs get me each and every month. Barely into the sneak peeks and I’m already planning to send a bundle of money to PTI AGAIN.

    Wow, what stunning creations Nichole! I’ve always thought Christmas comes too early these days with the shops stocking gifts months before, but with these holiday cards I already feel like I’m getting into the Christmas spirit! Loving your Melon Berry colour scheme, so original but really works!

    I love the simple poinsettia card. It is just right for sending to 200 family and friends. Yeah, my list gets longer every year and if those handmade cards aren’t there, many of them call me to let me know. This one is beautiful yet made for fast delivery.
