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!

Beautiful card and I like the sort of non-traditional colors!

Beautiful color combo for the background and a pretty sentiment die! Lovely card!

A sparkly and beautiful card. I like that you changed it up and went nontraditional. Just adding back in one layer in the Noel gives great dimension.

Tina, this is so striking with all its sparkle and gorgeous ink blending. I love that NOEL die.

Such a DAZZLING card! I love the non-traditional use of colors for Christmas.

Fabulous and so vibrant Christmas card! Love the unconventional colours and the big Noel diecut embossed in silver!

I have my eye on that beautiful Noel die!

I LOVE the colors on this card! They really allow that intricate and beautiful Noel sentiment to pop on the card! So pretty!

The "Festive Noel" is one of my favorites in the new release. It looks great everywhere I see it and it shows up so well on the lovely background you made.

Hi Tina, A gorgeous card, the combination of distress inks you have blended on your background are terrific and with the addition of the splatters provides a beautiful background. The elevation of the 'Noel' and the debossing of the 'noel inlays' is genius, a really beautiful card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

These might be nontraditional colors but are my favorites. Gorgeous card with the silver.
