Poppystamps Sept. Blog Blitz: Season's Greetings

Friday, September 23, 2016

Afternoon, y'all!  I'm back, as promised in my earlier Poppystamps Blog Blitz: Merry Christmas post, on the Poppystamps blog today, sharing a card that's dressed for the Christmas season.
I started this card by watercoloring the space behind where the Ornament Tree die cut would eventually lie on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered it with those same shades of green watercolor, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before framing it with both Lake House cardstock and gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  The tree itself was die-cut from white cardstock, and the "season's greetings" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, along its right edge.
A number of turquoise, red, and crystal buttons were sewn, using gold thread, into the nearly-solid white spaces on the tree; before it was popped off the surface, of the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.
Die-cut, Garden Green, cardstock  Pine Twigs, as well as a Real Red, cardstock Lovely Bow, which was coated in a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella, complete the look.
Be sure to check out all the Design Team's fabulous creations, showcasing goodies from the September Release, on the Poppystamps blog, every day through Tuesday, October 3, 2016.  And don't forget to leave lots of love as you visit, because a new, September Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Friday, October 7, 2016, at 12 am EST, to do so.  Winners will be announced, on the Poppystamps blog, the following Monday, October 10, 2016.  I've got the stunning, Ornament Tree die, that you see in action above, to giveaway this afternoon.
That's it, from me, for this Blog Blitz; but there truly is so much left to see.  You simply don't want to miss out.  Have fun, and good luck with ALL the glorious prizes, friends!  Hugs!
