Sparkling Chinese Lanterns


I love Chinese Lanterns and so I just had to have this new gorgeous Poppystamps die as soon as I saw it!

I coloured the die cut using my Twinkling H20’s and then inlaid some coordinating glitter paper (which I found after I had coloured the image – still can’t believe I had such a good match).

I cut an oval from my base card and then stuck some acetate to create the window before adhering the die cut and a sentiment die cut, also by Poppystamps.

I’m entering this into two challenges: Poppystamps Monthly Challenge (Just Bling it) and Less is More Challenge (Anything but Stamps).

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. How totally gorgeous. The layout is really stylish and elegant, and I love the way the poppy “lanterns” pop against the crisp white background. The stitched oval aperture is a super touch and perfectly balances the design. Fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More 🙂


  2. Beautiful card, Lucie. Great colours and such a creative idea to highlight those lanterns with an oval window backed with acetate. Love it. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More. Trina
