Festive Noel Christmas Blog Blitz
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello Poppy fans! The Christmas/Winter Blog Blitz is in full swing and I'm here to show you some inspiration using the gorgeous Festive Noel die.

I wanted to use "sort-of" untraditional colors so I started by loosely ink blending a panel of watercolor cardstock with Mermaid lagoon, Blueprint sketch and Wilted violet Distress inks. Ireally wasn't careful with the blending. I spritzed the cardstock with water and dapped off the excess with a paper towel. Then I diluted a tiny drop of silver acrylic paint with water and splattered it over the panel. I even spritzed it with Sheer shimmer spritz for extra sparkle because - Christmas...

I also die cut the Festive Noel 4 times and the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick frame once. With my scissors I cut out all the pumpkins from the frame.

The frame and the one Noel cuts I covered in silver sparkle embossing powder. I then layered the Noel cuts and adhered the frame and Noel to the card. I inlayed a single layer of the Noel negative cuts to make the word stand out more.

I inlayed all 4 layers of the berries and topped them with white Nuvo drops and also added a little shimmer to the inlayed letters.

And now for the part you've been waiting for! You could win this gorgeus and versatile Festive Noel die!
