Hello everyone, Tina here today with a reminder to enter the July Glim and Glam challenge. The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is crafty and sparkly. Plus, if you enter you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!!
Today I have made a spinner card. I first cut a piece of cardstock to 5.5"x8.5" and scored and folded one end at 1"5/8 and the other end at 2"5/8. I also added the gourgeous wide washi tape to an A2 panel.
I cut the Summer blossoms sidekick frame from white cardstock and teal glitter paper. I also the Graceful Faerie from white cardstock twice, as well as 2 sets of wings and 2 partial cuts of the farie (one mirrored) from the glitter paper.
I fuzzycut the partial cuts to fit as a dress and adhered to the body of the faerie. On the back of one faerie I placed a thin silver thread. I would have used clear, but I didn't have any. I then glued the wings together so I had 2 double sided wings. Since the wings were now going to add quite a bit of bulk, I adhered 2 itty bitty pieces of cardstock to the back of one faerie (on top of the silver thread), and glued the 2 faeries together with the wings set in between.
Since the space in the frame is limited I let the silver thread continue to one of the flowers in the frame. Be heavy with your adhesive. You want to make sure the thread doesn't move. Also, make sure you check that you spinner can actualy spin. I had to adjust the wings, since the wings hit the frame. I then adhered the glitter cardstock frame on top, and adhered the left side of it to the smaller flap of the base.
All done. Before you place the card in the envelope, make sure you twist the faerie/spinner element. When your recipient opens the card, the tiny faerie will spin and spread all that sparkle.
Now it's your turn. For all the details on the challenge and how you can win a gift certificate to the Poppystamps store click HERE! I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

Hello and Happy Halloween! I have a challenge reminder for you, one I hope will be enchanting. Our challenge this month has a Halloween theme, but instead of spooky or scary, how about Enchanted?
The beautiful Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Frame and Stencil was my starting point. I watercolored the whole Frame, pumpkins and leaves with my metallics.
They go on like watercolors, but the mica in the paint gives a glow to your images.
The frame and enchanting fairies were glued onto a sponged inked base. Then a bit of Nuvo Glimmer Moonstone added to the fairies. How would you create an enchanting Halloween card? We'd love to see!
There's a 20.00 gift card for the winner of our challenge, that runs through the 29th.
Hope you have a great and creative week!

I hope you have seen the latest release from Poppystamps...no? Well here's the link to see all the new products Summer Release! PLUS, you could win the Daisy Frame die from the Summer Release, more information at the end of my post! The pretty background die on my card is the Daisy Frame!! This die is 4" square and is very versatile! For this card I cut the Daisy Frame three times, yes I know, I do that a lot, BUT I love how it looks!
Also new to this release is the Friend Folksy Script die; just a super fun font! I layered three together, he he he, for more dimension and used a sentiment from the Fairy Wishes stamp set. I cut one sentiment (Special Friend) apart and added it to another (To A), to create the exact wording I wanted on my card.
The dark grey cardstock I used was a nice compliment to the light pink cardstock. It's a nice contrast but much softer looking than black! The following video will show you how to put this card together!
