For the shaker window I used the Open Hillside, Sloping Hillside and Snowscape. I cut them all out of white for my card.They layer smallest to largest.

I re-detirmine where I want my cuts to go and lay them out and take a photo to refer back to for final card assembly. Acetate wind is placed over opening.

I use fun foam when I have a large piece to cover to pop up the top piece to give room for the sequins or your choice of shaker material.

Holiday Blog Blitz: Holly Twig
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a few new goodies from our latest 2017 Holiday Release.  Please forgive my photography skills, though.  White is super hard for me to photograph, but it's ever so striking in real life.  Enjoy!

Poppy Season's Greetings Jar - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by rubbing Broken China Distress Ink, through the Winter Scattered Snowflakes designer stencil, onto the center of the white cardstock, card face.  Over the stenciling, I created the scene with die cuts, beginning with an older Ava Snowflake, die-cut from white cardstock.  The rest of the die cuts all came from this latest release.  The Double Pine Cone Collage was die-cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock.  Tip:  Use the negative die cut as a template for gluing each of those little bits into their proper places.  The Wispy Pine Needles were die-cut from Old Olive cardstock.  The Holly Twig, which you have the opportunity to win on the blog today (Woot!  Woot!), was die-cut from Soft Suede and Garden Green cardstocks; and Xmas Red Stickles was used for the berries.  Finally, the Cute Fawn was die-cut from watercolor paper and watercolored.

8.8.17 027

I then die-cut the largest jar, from the new Jar Collection craft dies, in the center of a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" white, glitter paper.  A strip of vellum was gold-embossed with the "season's greetings" sentiment, taken from our Christmas Greetings stamp set, and adhered along the vertical, left edge of the backside of the die-cut jar, sandwiched between the glitter paper and a sheet of clear cardstock.  The edges of the glitter paper were then framed with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  Tip:  Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, machine-stitching the glitter paper and clear cardstock together also ensures that they stay put for the long haul.

8.8.17 033

The prepped, jar panel was then popped up, with foam tape, over everything else; but before it was adhered in place, I added lots of white glitter, to the scene itself, to create a shaker effect.  Tip:  Apply a thin layer of baby powder over all the glued bits, as well as to the backside of the clear cardstock, to prevent the glitter from sticking itself in all the wrong places.  The lid was die-cut from gold cardstock; hand-cut along its bottom edge; adhered to the top of the jar; and embellished with a couple of Garden Green cardstock, Holiday Holly die cuts, as well as a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, studded with a single, white pearl, to complete the look.

8.8.17 037

Be sure to stop back by every day through next Tuesday, August 14, 2017, to see what my talented teammies have cooked up, using all the newly-released goodies, just for your viewing pleasure.  AND don't forget to leave lots of love as you visit; because a new, Holiday Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Thursday, August 17, 2017, to do so.  Winners will be announced, right here on the blog, the following Friday, August 18, 2017.  As I said before, I've got that fabulous Holly Twig craft die, that you see in action above, to giveaway today.

That's it, from me, for today, friends.  Actually, that's it, from me, for Poppystamps.  It's my time to move on; but before I do, I have to send out a massive thank you to Jeanne for her friendship and loyalty.  She has unwaveringly believed in me and, without a doubt, been my biggest cheerleader.  I also wanted to thank Dave for giving me the opportunity to work with his gorgeous and intricate dies.  I have been stretched creatively beyond my wildest imagination but, truly, in such a good way.  And finally, thank you to each and every one of YOU, my faithful followers.  I hope this won't be the end for us and that you'll continue to come along with me on my creative journey.  What's in store is sure to surprise you as much as it does me, but I can't wait to see what it may be!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and good luck with ALL the glorious prizes during release week!  Be blessed!

Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_8c6

 Hi there ! I hope you are enjoying the Poppystamps Blog Blitz !

As soon as the new dies came back in July I sat down to make this shaker card just for fun , I liked it so much I thought I should use it for the blog blitz!

Download

My top layer is watercolor paper to add a bit of texture. I added a layer of acetate under the second layer of paper, then added glass beads for the shaker.

I cut the word Merry, from the new Merry Frame and the word Christmas, from the new Christmas frame. I love that I now have an easy "Merry Christmas" sentiment to add to any of my Christmas cards. I sure need to get busy , I usually have about half  of my Christmas cards completed  by now.

 So many new stamps and be beautiful new Holiday dies to choose from this summer. No need to wait till the last minute.

Evangeline Floating Square
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4684-wm

Hello Everyone!

Thank you all so much for dropping by and taking a look at our gorgeous new Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz! We have got beautiful holiday designs and inspiration from August 2 -14, and a chance to win every day! Today, I am am sharing a card I created with the brand new Evangeline Floating Square. Take a look!

IMG_4683-wm

I created a magical snowy shaker card perfect for the very first holiday snow day! I used the Evangeline Floating Square as the top layer of my shaker card, and filled it with clear white and pale blue sequins, snowflakes, and tiny sprinkles. I really had my shaker well "loaded" but as soon as I turned it up, half my sequins and most of my sprinkles all seemed to stick to the double sided foam tape on the inside and disappear! It still looks cool when I shake it though!

IMG_4676-wm

Once I had my shaker part finished, I double cut the Magic Loose Script in blue and white glitter paper, and added it right in the center. This could look really cute with anything winter or holiday, like a  holly sprig and berries, or tiny pine cones or gingerbread men. Then I added the Small Polar Bear and a Stitched Alpine Snowflake with tiny foam pop dot bits, and then topped it off with a few sparkling sequins. Magic is afoot!

Would you like to win the Evangeline Floating Square craft die?  Here's how and good luck!

Holiday Blog Blitz - Magical Christmas
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Aug 5A Blitz 630

Hi everyone! This is my first post for Poppystamps and I am thrilled to have been asked to join their talented design team!  AND I get to start with their Holiday 2017 release, how fun is that? The Holiday 2017 Blog Blitz continues through August 17 and is filled with creative ideas! Poppystamps will be giving away a prize, each day of the Blog Blitz, so be sure to leave a comment.  Winners will be announced August 18, good luck!!!

My double fold card features the Open Hillside, Sloping Hillside and Snowscape dies along with the word dies "believe" and "magic". The card base was made using 12" x 12" cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 12" and scored at 4" from each end. 

 I cut the first panel with the Open Hillside die.

PS Aug 5B Blitz 630

My next panel uses the Sloping Hillside die.

PS Aug 5c Blitz 630

The center panel snowfall was made using the Snowscape die and dark blue cardstock. I used the Do You Believe stamp set to add my sentiments and the star, from the same set, was heat embossed using silver embossing powder.

PS Aug 5D Blitz 630

I cut the words believe and magic from glitter cardstock. To add dimension, the words were also cut 2x each from white cardstock, glued and layered together along with the glitter words. To finish my card I added Stampendous Crystal Snow to the trees and hillside.

PS Aug 5E Blitz 630

I hope this card has given you inspiration for your holiday cards or projects! I better get going on my cards, Christmas will be here before I know what happened!!! Be sure to leave a comment by August 17 for your chance to win the Sloping Hillside die used in today's post!!!

Holiday Release Blog Blitz Begins
By Jeanne Jachna

Pine-Bough-Ornaments-Two
I'm so glad you stopped by!  Our Holiday Blog Blitz Begins today!!    What's a blog blitz?  It's a special event where we feature projects created with the newest products.  Our design team give you ideas to get your creativity kick started and we offer a prize on every post during the blitz. 
Pine-Bough-Ornaments-Four
For most of us it's never too soon to get started making our Holiday cards.  I love to share hand made cards with friends and family to show them how much I care.  I'm ok having too many cards to choose from, but I never want to get caught short when I'm busy with all the other holiday preparations.   The new Pine Needle Clearing is a beautiful die with lots of possibilities.  
Pine-Bough-Ornaments-Three
I water colored a panel of watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolor in different shades of green and then cut it with the Pine Needle Clearing.  I adhered this panel to a clean white card base and added the Folk Merry Christmas greeting cut from gold in the center.
Pine-Bough-Ornaments-One
I wanted to hang some Crystal Ornaments from the pine boughs.  I cut the ornaments from gold foil paper.   The Crystal Ornaments are a single die, I cut them apart to  make three hanging from gold threads.  I inlaid colorful card stock in bright jewel colors.
