Here is my card for the challenge inspiration. I used Rainbow Christmas Paper and Stitched ChristmasTree Frame Dies



Next, I adhered a piece of Acetate film behind the negative cut and then glitter frame on the anterior of Acetate window using a Glue .
I used a piece of yellow gingham paper as a shaker background. 






After I assembled my shaker, I added BELIEVE diecut using Red Glitter Paper and Vellum Paper. I had planned to use Gold Glitter Paper for this, but I found that Red Paper would look more balanced because the shaker had already red sequins in it. 



I embellished the card with Raspberry Jewels and then finished off the card. I used a light brown card stock as a card base . 


So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting

25 Days of Christmas Tags : Pretty Pink Posh


Hi everyone and welcome to the 12th day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event hosted by the fabulous Tracey McNeeley aka In My Creative Opinion ! Today, Pretty Pink Posh designers are showcasing beautiful tags using Pretty Pink Posh products.
Here are my tags featuring Stitched Ornaments Dies set and other new release items.



I started by diecutting 140lb Cold Pressed Watercolor paper using Stitched Ornaments Dies . I chose this paper because it is thick enough to be used as tags and I loved the white color and texture from it.
For each tag, I will share details briefly.

< Tag 1 >


Tag hole : Neenah Texture Red
Pine Sprigs were cut from the same 140lb Cold Pressed Watercolor paper. Holly leaf was heat embossed in gold and watercolored.
Small sentiment is from Caroling Critters set.


< Tag 2 >



Tag hole : Simon Copper Glitter Paper
Stamped  Sparkle Dot Partterns 1 using Distress Ink Antique Linen and adhered Holiday Jewels Mix and Metallic Gold Jewels. Sentiment from Caroling Critters set.

< Tag 3 > 



Tag hole : Simon Aqua Glitter Paper
Stamped  Sparkle Dot Partterns 1 using Distress Ink Antique Linen and adhered Starry Sky Jewels and Midnight Black Jewels. Added a Pine Sprig with Distress Dry Glitter on it.




< Tag 4 > 



Tag hole : Simon Copper Glitter Paper.
Stamped snowflakes from Holiday Greetings set and Winter Friends set using various dye inks.
Embellished with Metallic Gold Jewels.



So now I finished my four tags.
Thanks for your visiting and Have a great day!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

 Thanks/Thanksgiving 

We are showcasing Altenew Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

Here are my cards for challenge inspiration.
I used Glitter Flurries Washitape from Altenew.



For my first card, I stamped sentiments ftom Thanks and Leaves Stamp set which is a part of November Simon Kit on A2 sized 80lb Neenah White paper.


For my front panel, I trimmed a piece of Neenah Texture White into A2 size, then cut a large circle using a circle die. I added splatters of violet and Metallic gold inks over the two panels.


After I foam mounted the front onto my sentiment panel, I adhered cut pices of Glitter Flurries Washitape to make bouquets on top and bottom. Before this I had adhered Glitter Flurries Washitape onto white cardstock, and fussy cut the images.

Here's my second card which is very easy and can be made quickly.


I simply adhered Glitter Flurries Washitape onto white cardstock, and I diecut it using Simon Basic Rectangle Dies. Sentiment is from Thanks and Leaves Stamp set, and I added visual gold accent with Simon's Copper Glitter Paper along the upper and lower lines of sentiment panel.


I embellished my card with more Glitter Flurries Washitape cuts and gold metallic sequins.

So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting
