Hello Poppy Peeps!
It's Sphoorti with a gentle reminder of this month's challenge - PSC#112 - Sparkling New Year! This month we're looking for some SPARKLE! We hope that gets you thinking of fireworks, a little confetti, or maybe some bubbly! Even if you're ringing in the new year comfy cozy at home, and watching the snow fall and sparkle in the sun, we want you to capture the magic. Just add some glitter, gems or foil to your design so we can watch you shine this year!
Projects can be for any occasion, and you're not limited to making cards. We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between! It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project! You must use a Poppystamps product to be eligible to win.
This was my take on the challenge, and such a quick and easy one - it's another that you can totally mass produce this for the holidays! It's actually even faster than the one I had in my previous challenge post, check it out here!
Hope you like it!
Did you know you can use dies to hot foil? I absolutely love the design of the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die and thought I'd try to see how it would look hot foiled. It turned out even better than I'd imagined! I've said it before, and I'll say it again - this die is SO beautiful!
Using some silver mirror cardstock from the FP1003 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6 pack, I die cut a strip to adhere a sentiment on. I took a piece of vellum and adhered it to the back of the strip and foam mounted it for some dimension.
Then I used the CB513 Christmas Banners clear stamp and die set to emboss the Happy New Year sentiment and die cut it. I adhered the sentiment to the foiled band and adhered it towards the bottom of the card.
And actually, that was it! So easy-peasy!
I actually have a bonus card for you too! It came together even quicker than the one above! For this one, I hot foiled the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die plate the same way, but for the sentiment, I used the die cuts from the and old JOY sentiment die that is no longer available, unfortunately. But the Snowflake Plate still is, so be sure to get one before it's gone!
