House In The Woods.
By Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, sharing a Christmas card today..



I have used as the main focal point on the card..Poppystamps "House In The Woods" from the new release.  I cut the house in red to create a shadow. . cardinals also poppystamps.



I made a frame using Memory Box ..Open Studio  "Stitched Square Layers" ..I used  the largest plus 3rd from the largest die to create this frame...this I raised up with 3d foam tape.

House in the woods adhered to the back of the frame.

Stitched hills in the background.. 


Merry Christmas banner across the top, with Frisky Squirrels.. 

Made more card mats as shown in red and white, across these I placed hessian ribbon..made a bow, which I crunched  up, added berries with Pine Twigs die.. 

Hope you like this clean looking red and white card.

Thank you for stopping by..Pam x

Sending Warm Wishes
by Yoonsun Hur

Hello crafty friends, Yoonsun is here!

I have a CAS Christmas card to share with you today using the Sending Script Craft Die, Tiny Sleigh Craft Die, and Christmas Greetings Stamp Set.
To create this card:
1. Die cut the word "Sending" from white card stock using the Sending Script craft die.
2. Die cut the Tiny Sleighs from white card stock.
3. Heat embossed the sentiment from the Christmas Greetings set on red card stock in white, cut it the small banner.
4. Mounted all elements as shown to A2 kraft card base using foam tape.
5. Decorated the card front with some clear sequins, star shaped wood veneers, and washi tape. Easy peasy, right?! :D
I love those tiny sleighs! They are so adorable!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Tender Snowflakes

This snowflake card features some dies and stamps from Poppystamps Holiday Release.

I have die cut all the images out of white cardstock, used some embossing glitter on the sentiment and then mounted it all onto an ivory cardbase. The whole process is explained in a VIDEO TUTORIAL down below:



Thank you for visiting today and I hope to see you again soon!

Crystal Snowflake Corner
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters, Sue here today with a Christmas card...or two.


I couldn't wait to get inky with the Crystal Snowflake Corner Frame. It's such a pretty die to use to frame a card and there's lots of room to add die cuts or sentiments inside the frame.


After I die cut the frame from white card stock I added Versamark ink all over the die cut, sprinkled it with embossing powder and heat set. I found this pretty light blue embossing powder that has different sizes of clear particles in it that adds such amazing sparkle. I really wish you could see it in person, it's perfect for frosty winter cards.


For the background I took white card stock and sponged on Distress Inks for a night sky. I sprayed the piece with Perfect Pearls, flicked on white opalescent paint and white Distress Paint to add snow to the sky and adhered that behind the frame.


I die cut the We Wish You A Merry Christmas die from red foil card stock, adhered it to the background and the card is done. Lots of sparkle and shine going on.

I thought that the red foil might be a little too dark on the inked background so I made a second card identical to the first except I die cut the We Wish You A Merry Christmas from white satin pearl card stock.


The white does pop a lot more but I couldn't pick a favourite so I'm showing you both and you can let me know in the comments which card you prefer.


Thanks for visiting with me today!

From All of Us
by Jinny Newlin

Hey, y'all!  I trust you're all having a great week so far.  It's Jinny here again today, sharing a playful, watercolored card, using a couple of darling stamp sets from the 2016 Holiday Release.  These little critters have been calling my name since the first time I laid eyes on them.  Enjoy!  Poppy - From All of Us - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping the "merry christmas from all of us" sentiment, as well as all the critters, snowflakes, and Christmas-themed accessories, in Jet Black ink, on a piece of watercolor paper.

I then sat back and had fun watercoloring the entire piece and detailing it with Glossy Accents and Dazzling Diamonds.  Once it was dry, it was framed with Real Red cardstock, as well as white-threaded, straight, machine stitching and wrapped with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow, before being popped off the surface, of the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.

Super simple, and perfect for mailing.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday, Poppystamps friends!

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a fun fall card I created with my favorite sneaky little kitty! I think this guy looks a lot like my own kitty, Maxwell Henderson! What kind of trouble will he get into today?


I started with a simple grey background, and added the Garden Step Ladder with a few carefully placed Garden Pots and Buckets. Maxwell was created with the Poised Cats.  He likes to watch the swirling leaves tumble down from the Leafy Breeze.

I painted a small swatch of watercolor paper in mottled leaf colors before cutting them out and adding just a few leaves here and there, creating a late Autumn garden scene.


Poppystamps has a wonderful collection of dies and stamps that are perfect for fall! We also have a terrific challenge going on right now, Back to Black, which Maxwell certainly approves of! We'd love to see what you create! Get all the details by clicking on the Poppystamps challenge badge.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Hello, tiny spiders
by Irena Kowalczyk

Here Irena again,
Today I prepared a tag that will be decoration for the coming Halloween.


I made tag using white and violet cardstock.
I used stencil 'Delicate Web' and Distress Ink Black.
Spiders cut out in black and silver cardstock.


I do not like spiders, but these tiny on the tag are harmless.


Thank you for your visit and wish you a happy crafting!

by Olga Direktorenko

Hello crafty friends, 

I simply adore small layering dies by Poppystamps - they are so great for using on their own as well as for creating cute little scenes. I have re-purposed some dies to make a winter landscape with a car traveling around carrying a load of gifts. 

Here are some photos and a VIDEO TUTORIAL





Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!
