Snowy Twilight Sky Background
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps winter deer trees nightime sky snowy background

Piecing a card together with Poppystamps dies is so easy to do! Between elements and sentiments, you don't even have to do stamping if you don't want to! With all that extra time saved, you can create a beautiful twilight, frosty, snowy background for your die cuts.

Check out this video, where I highlight the Tree Trunks, Surprise Deer, Folk Merry Christmas and Pointed Circle Frames dies and show how I created that frosty twilight background! 

Check out the dies I used for this card below and definitely pull out your Poppystamps wintery dies if you have a few last minute Christmas cards to make! Hope you all are having a happy and healthy holiday season!

Hope Your Season Sparkles
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0030

Working on addressing some cards today, and wanted to share one I did using my Finetec golds, with

Poppy's Perfect Pine Needles die.

DSC_0022

I knew I wanted to make a wreath, so I die cut the image several times from white cardstock, 7 to be exact.

DSC_0020

Assembly on a circle cut from 2 Memory Box dies taped together gave me the perfect wreath base.

DSC_0026 3

To add a bit of sparkle, the tips were pressed into Versamark and embossed with Antique Gold Powder.

DSC_0029

A sprinkling of glitter and my card is ready to send!

Happy crafting and Happy Holidays!

Evergreens for Every Occasion
by Jennifer Svare

ForestCard_All3_Watermark

Hello!  I'm so excited to show how these dies work together to create this very versatile card design. It's one of those card designs that works to have several made ahead for any occasion. Simply add the sentiment or greeting... a card that works for everything from "Merry Christmas" to sympathy, to a summery hello ~ Wow, I love this die and color combination!

The Swirly Loop die and Evergreen Trees work together to form the base design to the card, and I made it using a teal and shiny copper card stock.

ForestCard_Closeup_Watermark

To make the Christmas version, I simply added a crystal to the top of one of the trees!

ForestCard_ChristmasCloseup_NoWatermark

The video shows a larger version of this card, but these measure 3.5 x 5 inches.  I like the smaller sizes for thank you notes which is great for after Christmas. The interior has a single evergreen tree which ties the inside to the exterior of the card. I love how Kraft envelopes even match!

Here's a video I put together to show how I made this card, along with the larger version example.  Have a wonderful day!

Challenge Reminder - Anything But a Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0024

Hello! And welcome to a friendly reminder to create something for our challenge this month, 'Anything But a Card'.

Need a hint? How about a gift card holder? Who couldn't use a few of those this time of year?

DSC_0010 2

Surprise Deer is so sweet, and gets the 'aaahs' everytime!

Here's how I used him to make my gift card tag.

DSC_0008

If you purchase one tag set this year, let me rave about Pinpoint Main Street Tags, and

Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations.

8 sizes to choose from, and together with the Decorations sets, you have endless possibilities!

I cut my tag from shimmer card stock, ran it though an embossing folder, and chose one of the decorations dies for a pocket.

DSC_0007

The deer was sprayed with shimmer spray, and sponged on the edges. Notice the antlers can be cut separately allowing for a color change.

DSC_0005

Assembling my gift card holder was easy. Just glued the sides and bottom of the added Dome Tag Decoration. The snowy base is the top of the Dome Tag cut to form a hill. The hill, snowflake and Tree Trunks were cut from glitter paper.

DSC_0021 2

Not decided yet who will get this Starbucks gift card!

DSC_0019

Liked this design so much, I made 3 in different color combos!

Does this give you ideas? Would love to see and comment on your creation. Remember, the challenge lasts all month, and there's a gift certificate prize for the winner!

Happy Crafting, and Happy Holidays!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge
by Jeanne Jachna

Christmas-Penguins-Three
Do you love to play challenges?   When I started papercrafting several years ago there were so many different brands and products that I wanted to try, and frankly I just couldn't afford them all.  I found that one way to add products to my stash was to play along with different challenges I found on line.  Most manufacturers have a monthly challenge (Yes Poppystamps does too - see the badge in the top right corner?).  If you play along you could win a prize.   I really enjoyed seeing the different ways people would use the products and got ideas from projects I would see linked up.  Lots of them used stamps and dies that I already had in my collection.. other projects inspired me to buy something new! 
Image
This week Poppystamps is sponsoring the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge - you can find it here.   That means if you play along you could win a $20 gift certificate to Poppystamps.  Every week they have a new inspiration photo to inspire you!  Here's what I made with this weeks inspiration...
Christmas-Penguins-One
I think any Christmas themed project would be appropriate but I was inspired by the little penguin.  I was wishing I had the new Holiday Hats craft die - it would look so cute on the penguin don't you agree?  
Christmas-Penguins-Two
I started by cutting two of the Stitched Hills dies.  I inked one with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and then die cut the Folk Merry Christmas sentiment.  I layered the borders on to a panel that I inked with Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet distress ink. 
Christmas-Penguins-Four
I added some Evergreen trees to set the scene for the penguin ice skaters.  The penguins are from the Love Note stamp set, and their winter accessories (hat and bow) are from the Be Mine Penguins set.  These sets are both intended for Valentine's Day, but they're perfect for winter Christmas cards too! 
Christmas-Penguins-SMALL
Want to play along? You can get all the details here at Cupcake Inspirations.   Remember if you play along you could win a $20 gift certificate to Poppystamps.

For a SECOND chance to win leave me a comment.  We'll select one winner at random from the comments below to win a $20 gift certificate.  You have until midnight December 17 to leave me a comment.  The winner will be posted on December 19.

Christmas Shaker Wreath
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_e6e

Hi there, Marybeth here  today. I used the Ball Wreath again this time for a Christmas Shaker with added holly from Wintertime Fairies, both from Poppystamps .

Fullsizeoutput_e44

This is the ugly back side of my card showing you the fun foam channel I created to fill with sequins. After I filled it I adde a piece of vellum over the opening. I was a bit messy with the sequins and some stuck to the tape on the back of the fun foam.( try not to do that....lol) Oh before I placed the fun foam I added a layer of acetate over the die opening.

Download-1

Try not to see my thumb... the lighting in the room I take photos is not good this time of year unless I take the photo in the morning. I added a bit of glossy accents and a bit of glitter to the berries. I used shimmer pens on the holly leaves.

Thank you so much for the visit today!

Red Lantern
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0014

With Christmas right around the corner, creating a few extra cards is a great idea, and I know will come in handy.

DSC_0010

Here's some inspiration for you, created with all dies.

DSC_0004

I started with Garden Lantern, and cut it with red card stock and then again with a darker red twice, to give it stability.

Then I gave it a window with clear cardstock.

DSC_0005

Shiny Snowflakes cut from glitter paper...

DSC_0008Floribunda Collage provided the snow, in several sizes.

DSC_0013

I hope you're putting the finishing touches on your cards. And I hope you found some Poppy inspiration today!

Have a great day!
