Poppystamps: Brilliant Star Oval

Poppystamps is having an Instahop now through Oct. 18. It starts here: @poppystamps.  There's a prize on each stop of the TWELVE stops on the hop - more details below - but here's my card and then the die that's available at my stop on the Instahop (@kimsingdahlsen) just for leaving a comment!

And here's the gorgeous Brilliant Star Oval die!

I used a trio of soft blue glitter papers on my card. They are from the Memory Box Delicate Pastel Glitter pad with a burst of yellow from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter pad.  But can you imagine using this die with a rainbow of bright and cheerful colors?!  So festive!

The sentiment is also from Poppystamps (all links below) - it's the Merry Christmas Poe script.  Their various "Poe" dies have to be my favorite font!!  And did you notice the glow from the center of the star? There's a variety of new crystal dots at Memory Box!  I used the Poppystamps Basic Ovals set to cut an inset area for my die.

I didn't actually start with the above card in my head - I made the following card first and the peaceful nature of this card is what led me to the soft trio of blues.

The sentiment on this card is from the new Gilded Christmas Wishes set which has a variety of label shapes and there are coordinating dies. The embossing folder is Memory Box' Snowy Forest. I also used the Poppystamps Basic Ovals on this card to cut an inset area but I also cut a smaller frame behind it so I had a layered look.

After I got the forest card done, and realized I had lots of extra blue pieces for the insets that I did not want to waste, I made my first card - and then with still more pieces, I made the following card too!  I'm not wasting my glitter paper!

The snowmen and trees are from the new Snowman and Trees die. I leaned them back just a little so they were marveling at the star!

Be sure to head over to our Instahop starting here: @poppystamps. There's lot of prizes so definitely worth the trip over!!  Enjoy!

  1. Fabulous cards, Kim. Love the colors of your glitter paper!

  2. Both are so beautiful and I love the die used too!

  3. Stunning Kim! I love all three sparkly cards but the first one is my favourite - the pop of yellow from the star combined with that sentiment die is just beautiful!
