Capri Sleigh
by Sue McRae

Welcome to another blog blitz post. Sue here with my first card showcasing the new Capri Sleigh.

P1330949c

I started by colouring my background in different shades of Distress Ink, placing the Memory Box Scattered Flakes Stencil on top of the dried background and applying Picket Fence Distress Ink with a sponge dauber.

The Capri Sleigh is a three piece die set making it easy to customize each section of the sleigh in whatever colours or patterns you wish! I die cut the sleigh from foil card stock (and it embosses a pretty design into the sleigh as well) and used silver glitter card stock for the runner and decorative trim.

P1330950c

Of course I needed to fill the sleigh with presents and presents with glitter and sparkle. I also think the sleigh would look great filled with a few trees or holiday ornaments.

The pine trees were die cut from white card stock and where the die embosses a raised section on the tree I added Flower Soft for snowy texture. You could use glitter or beads too!

P1330958c

To ground the scene I used the Merry & Bright Channel die which lets some of the background colour peek through.

P1330915c

For your chance to win the Capri Sleigh please leave a comment on this post.

The blog hop continues until October 3rd so make sure to drop by every day and leave a comment on each blog post to win the specified die from the new release.

Happy Crafting!

Christmas Wishes.
by Pam Simpson

Hello we are having a mini Blog Blitz , sharing some of the new dies from Poppystamps !  Time to win a prize just by leaving a comment.

IMG_9204-crop

This is a simple card design using the new Poppy die "Tall Fluffy Snow Tree" .. This die cuts each layer separately, you can use as many layers as you like, I used them as they cut, but you could have smaller trees by leaving the large bottom cuts of your design.

IMG_9208-crop

These trees I cut in brown card, shaded through while still in the die with soft brown ink, removed and using a glue pen over the shaded area, next sprinkled fine glitter.

Foam sticky tape each cut to add dimension. I added white micro beads and Stickles  Xmas red glitter after the card was finished.

IMG_9202-crop

Hexagon shape cut with Poppystamps Stitched Hexagon Layer dies! Foam tape on reverse of white card adhered to a 6x6 card blank.

Red glitter card for the Bow & String die, adhered across the card, cut another bow for dimension.

Stamp sentiment in red ink.

If you would like  a chance to win this... Tall Fluffy Snow Tree die all you have to do is leave a comment.

Merry & Bright
by Lezlye Lauterbach

WOW Isn't all this inspiration just Amazing! Lezlye here back with more shine. I just love shine and glitter for Christmas! I sure hope the Bright design makes you Merry!

I am showcasing the Pickering Snowflake Background Die. This is a very detailed die and takes some care and appropriate material choices for optimal results.

I ended up using 2 pieces of cardstock and a dryer sheet. Have you heard of that technique? If not let me know and I will share it in a future post.

Merrybright2

My card base is 110 lb solar white neenah. I then had this fabulous gold heavy card-stock I cut it to fit the background piece and glued them both to the base.

Check out the detail on the sled. I die cut it first then used a thin rubber mat in place of a paper or cut mat and it dry embossed the design built into the die! Don't forget to comment to win this fabulous background die!

Hello and welcome to another day of Poppystamps Blog Blitz, we are  sharing darling new products and a chance to win a new die!

I love this Candy Cane Gift Die it sure makes for a fresh and simple Christmas card.

I also love glitter and added some chunky glitter to this layered candy cane. I think I layered it 3 times.

Many of you may already know this trick but just in case I wanted to share with you. 

Place Press and Seal ( sticky wrap) over the cut piece of die and gently pull up, the pieces will stick  to the press and seal

turn over add glue then place on your card . It will be spaced just as you cut it .

I learned this from another designer.  Im sure you can find a video showing how to do this .

I used watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby for the white panel, I love the texture! The gift bow is in foil red.

by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3509-wm

Hello Everyone!

Are you loving all this terrific inspiration in our Poppystamps Blog Blitz? I know I am really enjoying seeing what my design team friends are creating with all these brand new Poppystamps dies and stamps! Today, I am sharing a few things I made with the new Scribble Square!

IMG_3510-wm

I fell in love with this fun little die the first time I saw it! I have about a dozen of crazy color combinations I'd love to try. But today, I went with a colorful Christmas red and green to create this card and matching gift tag. It was so easy to make too - -just a few pieces and voila!

IMG_3525-wm

I used the new Scribble Square, along with the Scribble Snowflake Circle, Swirled Joy, Madeleine Snowflakes, Stitched Main Street Tags, and the Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations to create this holiday combo.

New Stitched Snowflake Square
by Jeanne Jachna

Snowflake Square One
I hope you're enjoying our Blog Blitz!  We'll be sharing projects featuring the new dies through October 3!  We're happy to be sharing some  prizes with you too!  Today I'm showing the new Stitched Snowflake Square.  It's about 2 1/2 " Square and sort of looks like a puzzle piece with snowflake cut outs.  This one would look great on a clean and simple card with a scallop square background and a simple sentiment.  Of course I wanted to think of something that would WOW so this one is  a little trickier.
Snowflake Square
I started with a 6" square piece of card stock and drew a border in pencil 1/2" from each side.   It's important to line up the die exactly each time you cut so that they're prefectly centered.  I rotated the die for each cut so that each square would face a different direction.  I didn't want the pattern to repeat.
Snowflake Square Four copy
I removed all the pieces I die cut and replaced them with colorful inlaid pieces.  
Snowflake Squre Three
The Laurette Snowflake cut from gold foil was topped with the Swirled Peace Die for a fancy focal point.  A sprinkle of gold sequins is the finishing touch to pick up on the gold in the Laurette Snowflake.

Sept. Blog Blitz: Season's Greetings
by Jinny Newlin

Afternoon, y'all!  It's Jinny here again, sharing a card that's dressed for the Christmas season, for day three of our September Blog Blitz.

Poppy Season's Greetings - JinnyNewlin
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.

9.19.16 028
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.

9.19.16 029
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.

9.19.16 036
Be sure to check out all the Design Team's fabulous creations, showcasing goodies from the September Release, right here 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, Poppystamps friends!  Hugs!

Wishing You a Merry Christmas
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps and Our Mini Blog Blitz! New dies! Yay!

Poppyblitzsmfluffytree

I am showcasing the small fluffy tree for you today. I used some sticky paper and applied some ultra fine glitter to it and then cut out my tree pieces. I love creating scenes with Poppy Dies. I could see making a whole card full of these lovely trees or even just showcasing one by itself with maybe some ornaments or berries on it.

 

Smfluffytree2

I brought in the Pop of red and added a little sticker to one deers nose.

Smfluffy3

The snow drifts were cut using glittered felt. which added some deminsion to the card.

Stitched Hills
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3502-wm

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Have you been loving all this great winter holiday inspiration during our September Blog Blitz? I know I have! I just love seeing what my talented design team friends create with these beautiful Poppystamps dies and stamps! Today I am sharing a brand new die called Stitched Hills!

IMG_3499-wm

The Stitched Hills die set is three separate dies that you can mix and match to create beautiful hills of snow! You can also create rolling hills of grass, or even ocean waves to toss tiny boats. I used the Stitched Hills to create a winter snow scene with the Crystal Snowflake Corner Frame, Evergreen Trees, and Prancing Deer. All of these pieces fit together beautifully!
