Poppystamps & CardMaker Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to today's Poppystamps and CardMaker Blog Hop.

You should have arrived from Yvonne's blog.  If you've gotten lost along the way and would like to start from the beginning of the hop there is a master list here at the CardMaker blog.

My card uses a Christmas die! Can you guess which one it is?

Cardmaker Hop 1 Sept 19 2014

It's the Poppystamps Small Luxe Poinsettia Background that I used for my flower.

Cardmaker Hop 4 Sept 19 2014

I watercoloured some paper in pastel shades and die cut 3 poinsettia blooms from it.  I layered the flowers, curled the petals and added a sparkly brad.

I thought the flower would be pretty for a wedding or anniversary card so I chose the Claudette Frame as the backdrop because of its simple and elegant design.

With a white embossed sentiment and a few pearls the card is done.

What's a blog hop without some prizes!  Poppystamps will be giving away two dies to one lucky person.  So make sure to leave comments on every blog in the hop!  Here's the prize.
