Nutty As A Squirrel
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5540-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today! Today I am sharing a fresh and fun Fall card that features the adorable Busy Squirrel Trio! The very first time I saw these squirrels, I knew I wanted to create a card where that squirrel races up the tree! Just by using a bright autumn color palette, I was able to transform the Holly Vine and Sidekick Frame and Stencil from a holiday die to a Fall die. Never be afraid to really experiment with how many ways you can use a die, along with how you can use color to create a whole new look!

I cut the Holly Vine Sidekick Frame into a few different colors, because I wasn't sure just how I would arrange the color palette. I like the blue sky behind the white Birch Stitched Frame, but then I played around with a few different background colors before finally selecting white. I like the way the white really shows off the warm fall colors, and brightens the look of the card. I also changed my mind on the color of the squirrels too! They really stand out on the finished card!

Once all the pieces were glued in place, I added a few leaves from the Stitched Oak Trio, and used a tiny hole paper punch to make tiny red berries. Now my nutty squirrels have their very own fall playground!

Thanks so much for dropping by today and sharing a little Fall crafty spirit!

Poppystamps Fall Thank You
by Robin Tharaldson

October PS Full1 with Watermark

I am so ready for Fall! I know it is officially Fall, according to the calendar, but it is in the 90's here and on Monday we will hit the 100's. OK, not Fall in my world, lol. However, with the holidays almost upon us I find I never have enough Thank You cards and this sheet of wood veneer has been calling to me for a while; so I have been making a few Thank You cards to have on hand.

October PS CU1 with Watermark

I used Poppystamps Oak Leaf Oval Collage and Thank You Streamer dies to cut the wood veneer sheet. The dies cut through the wood like butter, seriously! Best part, the wood veneer I used is adhesive backed, woo hoo!

October PS CU2 with Watermark

I you don't have wood veneer I think this card would look great using a brown cardstock! I finished my card with sequins from Poppystamps called Not So Heavy Metal; this pack of sequins and glitter is perfect for a Fall shaker card! The following video shows how easy it is to make this card using wood veneer sheets!

 

I hope this post will inspire you to try using different materials on your projects! 

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Happy Saturday, everyone! It's getting close to Halloween, and I just finished a new card going to a friend's children.

DSC_0051

I said it before, I LOVE the Halloween Costume Cats stamps and dies! They just tickle with their sweet little grins.

DSC_0050

All my kitty die cuts were copic colored. Border cut from glitter paper & Oak Leaf Oval Collage cut and colored too.

Shaker elements: Buttons Galore and More Spooky Fun.

What little one doesn't love an interactive shaker?

Hope you enjoyed today's Poppy Post, and got some ideas for Halloween cards.

Have a great weekend!

by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Everybody!

We are SO happy you could join us today for another spooky Halloween scene! This new Halloween collection has so many fun little dies that work together so well, our design team can't put them down! We are creating a collection of spooky scenes that shows off our own unique styles. What will you create?!

IMG_4854-wm

I created a bright and colorful Halloween scene, starting with the Creepy Forest Collage, then adding the Doodle Jack O' Lanterns, Bat Ring, Crooked Fence, and Mr. Batty. It's amazing how many ways you can combine this group of dies to create something new!

Challenge Reminder: Masquerade
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0011

Hello, Poppy Friends! Nancy here, reminding you there's a challenge going on and we'd love to see what you do.

Here's some inspiration for our theme this month, 'Masquerade'.

DSC_0008

I just can't get enough of these adorable cats, in their Halloween costumes. 

DSC_0021

Everything for my card was stamped first and then die cut. The dies make it easy to align the images perfectly. A little washi tape holds the image in place while you run it through the die cut machine.

DSC_0019

Here's where the masquerade magic happens. I die cut the Creepy Forest Collage out of vellum card stock and lightly sprayed the back with repositionable spray mount. Securing the die cut on black cardstock, I then sponge inked the window cut with my white ink.

DSC_0012

I went especially heavy around the middle branch, creating a foggy moon.

Then I stamped the bats in black. The sentiment, also from Halloween Costume Cats, was white embossed.When I was happy with my placement of the costumed cats and pumpkins, they were glued down.

I hope you'll give the challenge a try. There's always gc for the winner, and we all love seeing your posts!

Happy crafting, and Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Season
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4845-wm

Hello Everybody!

It's time to shake off those summertime blues with a bright and colorful Autumn card! Take a look at all this fall color!

IMG_4838-wm

This was a really fun card to make, and pretty easy breezy too! I used some of my favorite dies from the Poppystamps newest fall release, starting with the Brilliant Leaf Frame as my base. I cut it in bright, crisp white, then mounted it onto a white card stock base.

IMG_4836-wm

The next part was the fun part! I cut a collection of leaves in bright fall colors from the Stitched Oak Trio, the Stitched Maple Trio, and Leafy Breeze, curled up the ends just a touch, and then placed them randomly around the white frame. I made a tiny bunch of grapes from the Floribunda Collage, and then added a Harvest Pear and the Harvest and Swirl Pumpkin combo.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Happy Halloween
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0012

Hello! And welcome to my post featuring Poppystamps newest... Halloween release! It couldn't get more exciting around here, with the new stamps and dies. I get to feature the newest pumpkin set, Swirl Pumpkin and Harvest Pumpkin!

DSC_0016

DSC_0004

Oh how I love this time of year! Changes everywhere, from the weather, to the leaves on trees, fall is definitely in the air. Even the food we eat takes on a pumpkin spice flavor! (Lattes anyone?)

Pumpkin Swirl is everything Poppystamps is known for: perfectly sized and shaped with even the sweetest vine curled on top! And with it's mate, Harvest Pumpkin, you can use just the silhouette or back it with contrast color.

Let's look at how I made this card. I love to create a scene, and with a bit of drama for the Halloween season. Sponge inking a background came first, in colors that will let my pumpkins take center stage.

DSC_0001

Now for a slightly spooky tree...

DSC_0022

I created a stencil with Poppy's Birch Tree die, sponging it with a ghostly gray,  and next made a frame from Poppy's largest Pointed Oval Frames. 

DSC_0021

I cut the frame several times to pop it up, then added the sponge inked frame to the top of my stack.

DSC_0009

All 3 pumpkins were cut with glitter paper, and the orange pumpkin popped up with foam. My greeting is also a new die, Happy Halloween Signs. You're going to be seeing this set of sentiments a lot during the release. It's beyond cute, with just a bit of  'Haunted Mansion' flare to it!

DSC_0015

Are you excited? You could win the set of your choice by leaving a comment on the different posts all week.

Good Luck, Happy Fall and happy creating!
