I used three new dies on this card!  Can you find them?  
Forest-Deer-Three
Here's two.. the Swirly Loop die that I'm using as a sun on my design and Shiny Snowflakes.  The snowflakes die includes three different snowflakes.  I used the two smallest in the set.
Forest-Deer-TwoI stamped a sentiment from the Wintertime Faeries clear stamp set on on a die cut Stitched Hill.  I made sure to add lots of sparkle on my card.. some gems for the centers on the snowflakes and some sugary glitter too! 
Forest-DeerThe Grand Pine Tree is my favorite pine tree ever.  I embossed it to add more detail and then glittered up it's snowy boughs.
Forest-Deer-Five

A Fall Blitz of Treats!
by Jennifer Svare

HarvestBread_Watermark1


There's something special about that little crisp breeze this time of year that never fails to spur fall baking in my kitchen, and I always get excited for the holiday season about now.

This fabulous new release of fall dies by Poppystamps has taken my excitement over the edge this year - any of these dies make the perfect embellishments for mini loaf gift boxes!  I'm pretty sure everyone within 10 feet of me will be receiving one over the coming holidays.  The no-fail pumpkin bread recipe, which I'll share with you, is so easy and delicious!

In the video below, I'll show what I did to create one of each fall theme ~ "Pumpkin Harvest" and playful Halloween.

Fall Release Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

Download-6

Hi there and welcome to the Poppystamps Halloween Blog Blitz! Always exciting when Poppystamps has new stamps and dies!  If you would like a chance to win this  Creepy Forest Collage  , all you have to do is be sure and leave a comment on this post. . There are some really fun new dies and stamps!

Download-7

 I use fun foam when I make a shaker.  I add adhesive and then start laying fun foam on the back and trim where needed , I like it much better then foam tape. I added vellum to the back of the shaker after filling it up with a sequin mix, then I place it on top of the card base. I think the vellum gives it a bit more sound when you shake it.

Download

I sniped the two little ghost from Ghost Collage to add to this little spooky scene , yet still very friendly for some of my younger grand-darlings.

Download-1

All the Poppystamps products I used are linked below.  Good luck , I hope you win! Its so nice of Dave ( the owner) to let  each of us give away a new product of our choice! That gives you  plenty of chances to win, by leaving a comment . On the post I am giving away the: Creepy Forest Collage!

God bless you all!

Fall Release Blog Blitz Begins
by Jeanne Jachna

Ghost-Collage-Two

Thanks for stopping by!  You picked a great day for a visit!  Our Fall Release Blog Blitz begins today!   What?  You're not familiar with our Blog Blitz??? We'll you're going to love this!  For the next several days (September 16-26)  the design team is sharing projects made with the new Fall Release (you can see all the dies and clear stamp sets in the store here).    And as a special treat for you we'll be giving away one of the new dies on every post during the blitz!!  I'll give you all the details at the end of this post.. but first.. let me share a card I made for today!
Ghost-Collage-Six
This is the new Ghost Collage die!  It's a negative die cut that will be great for shaker cards, and treat tags!
Ghost-Collage-Five
I started with a handful of colorful card stock in shades of purple, orange and green.  I cut the Zig Zag Stripes once with each of the colors.  This will give you enough strips to make three cards! 
Ghost-Collage-Four
I cut the Ghost Collage with a Circle Layer Die around it to make the white die cut you see in the photo.  I cut a second slightly larger circle from black card stock to place behind the ghosts.
Ghost-Collage-Three
The new Happy Halloween Signs has a gothic look with the fancy end embellishments.  I love that the letters are attached making the sentiment easy to adhere to my design without searching out each letter.
Ghost-Collage-one
A few sequins add the right amount of sparkle. 
Ghost-Collage
Do you love the Ghost Collage die?  Want to win one for yourself? 

Let me fill you in on all the details ok?
