Warm Winter Wishes Gift Cards
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, friends!  It's Jinny here today with a quartet of gift-card-wielding, Christmas cards for some of my nieces and nephews.  This is the first year I've turned to gift cards for the little ones, but I never know what to get them, especially being as we never get to see them and don't even know what they have or like.  Matter of fact, I haven't even yet met three of the four of them from my hubby's side of the family.  Then, in the past, when we haven't heard if the gifts were even liked or appreciated, well, it just makes it easier to send gift cards and let them pick out exactly what they want themselves.  At least, then, I'll be assured our precious dollars weren't wasted.  Plus, Poppystamps' Tucked Corner Tag die sure makes the delivery of gift cards ever so fun!

Poppystamps Warm Christmas Wishes Gift Cards - JinnyNewlinThey're all pretty much made the same, so I'll just take you through the making of one.

Poppystamps Warm Foxy Wishes Gift Card - JinnyNewlinI started by watercoloring and splatting a piece of watercolor paper in shades of aqua, turquoise, and green.  I then speckled it with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once that was dry, I used the Winter Snowflakes stencil to add a little texture with modeling paste.  While that was drying, I stamped a strip of vellum, in Jet Black ink, with the "WARM CHRISTMAS WISHES" sentiment and anchored it, as well as the watercolored piece itself, to the white, cardstock, card face, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  Before sealing up the far left edge of the vellum strip with more silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching, I tucked a handful of Sparkling Clear and silver star sequins in behind it.

12.12.16 017Our Tucked Corner Tag was then die-cut from white, glitter cardstock; punched with a simple hole in its top; laced with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow; popped off the surface of the card face with foam tape; and embellished with a textured Garden Green cardstock,  Holly Leaf Branch die cut.  Its center, too, was filled in with a Barnes and Noble gift card.

12.12.16 020Finally, I stamped the little fox on watercolor paper; watercolored her; die-cut her out; dressed her up with a little stamped, die-cut, and watercolored scarf; and popped her up, with foam tape, in the bottom left corner of the tag.

12.12.16 023The fox was then swapped out for the deer, otter, and cat, each individually dressed for winter, respectively.  While it's not showing up super good in these photos, they were also detailed with Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

Wirework Ornaments
by Jeanne Jachna

Wire-Ornament-Three

Are you getting ready for Christmas?  I know.. there's so much running around to do right?   It seems like there's always something on your "TO DO" list this time of year!  I'm making a few more cards for last minute presents to hand out.  I like to drop off bagels or donuts at the dentist, and veterinarian, and I can just tuck this in the bag of goodies. 
WIre-Ornament
If you know me.. then you know I love bold bright colors, something a little unexpected!   I hope this one makes you smile!
Wire-Ornament-Five
I started with a pink background created with the Botanica Frame Die.  I cut the die from pink card stock, and then layered it over a fuchsia panel.  I trimmed the panel down about 1/4 on all sides to layer it on an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.5").
Wire-Oranment-Two
I cut the Wirework Ornaments from metallic gold foil paper, and used the Retro Ornaments as a background.  I layered green, blue and yellow behind the intricate foil cut outs.  To create a little more dimension, and add some shading I inlaid just a few pieces of darker cards stock on each.  This didn't take long and I only added about 5 inlays on each ornament.  
Wire-Ornament-Four
The ornaments are adhered directly to the base (no pop ups on this one) so it was easy to adhere the Merry Christmas Script sentiment over the ornaments.  The finishing touch was a sprinkle of gold sequins to coordinate with the gold Wirework Ornaments.
Wire-Ornament-One
I love the fun colors and retro glam this one has!   What will you make today?

City Sidewalks
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4001-wm

Hello Everyone!

One of the things I love about Christmas is how we celebrate it all over the world, from small country towns to the big city metropolis! I lived in a big city for many years, and have always loved the busy city streets during the holidays. I used a few of my favorite Poppystamps to create this city scene.

IMG_3997-wm

This card uses only three dies, Wintergreen Border, Downtown Urban Landscape, and Crystal Snowflake Corner Frame. To create a pretty scene like this, you have to think in terms of layers. Start with the base card, then add the bottom layer of buildings first, stacking layers until the Wintergreen Border layers are placed on the top. Have fun experimenting with the paper, manipulating leaves and vines until they lay just the way you want. It's amazing how versatile a border die can be once you start playing with edges and overlaps. Create your own city scene!

IMG_3999-wm

Enjoy your holidays wherever you are, and wherever your heart lies! From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!

Thank you so much for joining us today!

Ombre Bows
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters, Sue here! I'm happy you popped by today during this busy time of the year so I'll keep this short and sweet!

P1340726c

The Bow and String die was calling my name so I die cut them out of glitter card stock in shades of pinks and purples for an ombre effect and I die cut the Old Fashioned Merry Christmas from black glitter card stock.

P1340738c

I wanted to give the background a bit of texture so I used the Memory Box Winter Snowflakes stencil to emboss my card stock. Don't forget to use your stencils this way, you'll get a lot more use out of them.

1606

I adhered all my die cuts to the card base and filled the backside of the bows with silver glitter card stock and felt it need one more thing so I took the Fluffy Bow and die cut if from silver glitter card stock but used on the square centre pieces from this bow to add to the centres of the Bow & String die cuts and now I felt the card was complete.

P1340730c

As this is my last post before Christmas, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Apple Butter Gift Tags
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a couple more of my apple butter gift tags.  For the first one, I turned our Bauble Tree Background die into a tag itself; and for the second, I had lots of fun creating a watercolor scene.

Poppystamps Apple Butter Gift Tags - JinnyNewlinLet's get up close and personal with the first.

Poppystamps Bauble Tree Gift Tag - JinnyNewlinI started this tag by die-cutting the Bauble Tree Background base from Basic Black cardstock and topping it with a die-cut, from silver, glitter cardstock, Merry Bauble Tree.  It's bottom edge was then decked out with a silver-embossed, on a strip of black cardstock, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape.

12.10.16 020A die-cut, from white, glitter cardstock, Ava Snowflake dresses up its middle...

12.10.16 022
and its top was simply punched with a small hole through which to thread white string, which was tied, in a bow, after being laced through a black button and embellished with lots of fabulous, color-coordinating ribbons and trims, tied in bows themselves.

12.10.16 025I used our largest Festival Tags die as a foundation for the second.

Poppystamps Watercolor Gift Tag - JinnyNewlinIt was watercolored and speckled in shades of aqua and turquoise.  I then die-cut the Winter Pine from textured, Garden Green cardstock.  Before popping it out of the die, I sponged it up with VersaMark ink to emboss the layers of snow with white powder.  It was then popped up with foam tape, just as the deer, which was die-cut from Soft Suede cardstock, was.  I couldn't help but give the deer a little, red, rhinestone nose, before splattering everything with Titanium White acrylic paint.

12.10.16 033The "the most wonderful time of the year" sentiment was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, along the vertical right edge of the tag.

12.10.16 014

Before the tag was laced, through a punched hole, surrounded with a die-cut, Crumb Cake cardstock ring, and tied in a bow, another scrumptious, white, glitter, cardstock Ava Snowflake die cut was added, to the tree, to complete the look.

12.10.16 016That covers things, for today, Poppystamps' friends.  Thanks so much for visiting us, and have a terrific Tuesday!

Holiday Greeting
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog! I have Christmas Card for you today!

Chalkchristmas

I cut the poinsettia out of kraft cardstock and colored them with Prismacolor colored pencils for a soft vintage look.  I created the chalkboard look on my black cardstock by rubbing white pigment ink on it, then removing some with a baby wipe.

Chalkpoppy2

I used the same ink for the sentiment and then heat embossed it with white powder for a pop.

Poppy3

I love adding the chunky gold glitter to the centers as an alternative. Have a great day!
