25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello Everybody!

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags is in full swing and I have another pretty tag to share with you today! You can get all the details, and link up your own holiday tag over at Tracey’s blog right here: https://inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-25-days-of-christmas-tags-main-post.html

Today’s tag was inspired by Vicki Dutcher, from CAS-UAL Fridays, on Day 3. Take a look at Vicki’s beautiful tag!

I found a lot of inspiration in Vicki’s tag. I loved the way her alcohol inked background looks so shiny and metallic in the photo, but I thought if I cut the tag out of green foil, it wold look too dark. So I added shiny green foil on the bottom, to make my little dancing Christmas faerie stand out.

I love that shine! I used Poppystamps and Memory Box dies to create all the pretty design elements!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Live your life in color!

Poppystamps November Challenge: Faerie Kingdom

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Poppystamps November Challenge! This month, our theme is Faerie Kingdom, and I am sharing a card I created featuring the very magical Sugarplum Faerie! You can find beautiful faerie inspiration, and link up your faerie themed project using at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, over at the Poppystamps blog right here: http://poppystamps.typepad.com/

Take a closer look at my Sugarplum Faerie Card!

To create the Sugarplum Faerie, start with the Brilliant Leaf Frame adhered onto a crisp white card base! Add a collection of Stitched Oak Trio leaves in glittery green papers and a few large berries. Cut the Scribble Snowflake Circle in a dazzling white glitter paper, and add the Winterland Faerie in your favorite Sugarplum color, mounted with a little bit of foam pop dots ! Finish off with your favorite faerie sequins and voila!

Now it’s your turn! We can’t wait to see what you will create!

Poppystamps and Buttons Galore Blog Hop and Giveaway!


Hello Everybody!

We have got something really exciting for you today! Poppystamps and Buttons Galore have teamed up to bring you an amazing end of September Blog Hop!  Our design teams are featuring beautiful projects made with Poppystamps dies and stamps, and sprinkled with Buttons Galore goodies, like sparkling sequins mixes and 3D buttons!  Be sure to hop along with us and leave comments along the way! Poppystamps is giving away TWO $20 gift certificates! You have until October 1st to leave a comment, and winners will be announced on the Poppystamps Blog Oct.2.

If you have arrived from the Poppystamps Blog, then you’re in the right place! You can always begin at the beginning over at the Poppystamps Blog right here: Poppystamps Blog   http://poppystamps.typepad.com/

For my first card, I used some of my favorite Poppystamps dies from our Fall and Holiday releases to create this woodland layered shaker.  The first layer is the card base, followed by a white glitter panel that has been cut with the Pine Cone Branch Collage, with glitter paper inserted behind the pine cone and needles. Then I added the clear acetate panel, with a glittery Swaying Birch on top. On top of that is the Pine Needle Clearing and the Pointed Rectangle Frame. The Curious Fawn, Stitched Maple Trio, and a few sequins finish off this frosty fall card.

Speaking of sequins, did you see this beautiful mix from Buttons Galore? It’s called Through the Woods, and it’s such a pretty mix of tiny woodgrain sequins, browns, and forest greens. I love the way large shakers sound when filled with sequins! When you shake the sequins all the way down to the bottom, the shimmery pine cone is revealed. Surprise!

For my second card, I brought out a little bling! I cut the Ball Wreath on crisp white card stock, adding red foil behind it, and added a shiny green bow and sparkle. Then I added the Buttons Galore Old Fashioned Lights on a piece of black cord, and a few sequins from Deck the Halls! I love that sparkle and shine!

You can find more great inspiration and ideas on every stop along the hop! Next up is May Flaum: http://mayflaum.com/
