Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Yuletide Joy Stamp Set (October 2016 SOTM), City Sidewalks Paper Packet, Glacier Cardstock, Inks (Cranberry, Glacier, Pear), Marker Alphabet Stamp Set, and Sparkles.

I will admit that the stamping on this layout is a result of laziness.  My original plan was to emboss the stars and color in the poinsettia but I changed my mind and decided to just stamp the stars.  In choosing which colors to use I came up with the idea to rock-and-roll the tips in a second color.  I’m so pleased with the end result and glad my laziness worked out for the best. 😉
