Gentle Leaf Collage
by Sue McRae

P1350358c

Hello crafters, welcome to another day of our blog blitz!

P1350312c

I started off my card by using the Gentle Leaf Collage, die cutting it from card stock and using this piece as a stencil. I used glitter embossing paste in green with a hint of blue for the leaves and love the pretty sparkle. This is such a great way to get more mileage from your dies!

P1350350c

I wanted a defined edge for my panel so I tapped a Versamark ink pad around the edge of the card stock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set.

To continue with the gold theme I flicked gold paint onto the panel.

P1350337c

I die cut the Little Luxe Hello from black card stock and stamped the word friend from the Sentiments of Hello stamp set.

P1350319c

To finish off, I mounted my panel onto black card stock and added a few black pearls.

Remember to leave a comment on each blog post during the blog blitz for your chance to win the featured product.

Today I'm giving away the Gentle Leaf Collage.

Thanks so much for visiting with me!

Winter card
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5000

Hi Poppystamps fans :)

Christmas time is coming.  

I am sharing a  Christmas card today. 

 

There are three layers of the paper: white, green (2-3mm smaller) and white again. This time it was about 5mm difference to make that nice green frame around.

I used star mask and pearl paste to make those tiny white-glitter stars on the background.

Silver  glitter paper was used for that circle in the centre. It was decorated with Wintergreen Border die.

There are actually three cut outs but I cut out the bottom part of each and then they were stuck underneath the circle.

Two poinsettias are added on the border of the circle and then I added Country House die together with some turquoise stars.

Winter scenery
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_4484

Hi there,
Today I would like to invite you on the winter journey.

This winter wonderland was made with the newest Popystamps dies (house and lamp) and Memory Box stencil (forest).


Firstly I mixed structural paste with blue pearl paint.

I placed stencil on the card and spread my mix inside that.

Simple trick but effect is quite amazing.

I used the same die (Merry Christmas) to cut letters (light mint color) and place for them (white paper) and then I just stuck letters inside.
On top of that I added lamp and house which are made of few layers to get that 3D effect.

Finally I added some snow using a snow marker and there you go :-) lovely cold-winter card is ready.

Glitter Christmas Cards
by Ilona Zbieg

 

 

Hi everyone

Ilona here today.

 I want to invite you to my last inspiration this year.

I prepared glitter christmas card. I used white, blue, brown glitter papers and made winter scene.

I cut out a rectangular window with light blue frame and glued christmas tree inside. 

Because my card is very luminous, my 9 years old daughter love it. She handed the card to her teacher.

May this incredible time of giving and spending time with family

bring you joy that lasts throughout the year.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 

Ilona

Snowy Day
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_2423-wm

It's a Snowy Day this December morning! These bright primary colors remind me of the pages of a children's book, where snow is always fluffy white and magical! To create the snowy background, I used white embossing paste and the Memory Box designer stencil Texture Tiny Dots. It's a marshmallow world in the winter!

IMG_2423-wm-NEW

To create the Christmas lights inside the house, I inserted tiny pieces of paper in the window to look like different rooms with different lights. Now it feels festive too!

IMG_2422

I had to include a little pic of Omar kitty too!

Thanks for joining me today!

Live your life in color!

Gift bags
by Ilona Zbieg

Hi :)

Ilona here.

It’s hard to believe it, but the holiday season is upon us!

This year, why not get an early start on gift wrapping and do something extra special for your friends and family?

Part of the fun of the holidays is getting gifts which are wonderfully packaged. Make your wrapping and labels part of the gift.

There’s nothing like adding a personal touch to every package!

Last time I handmade two gift bags with tags made from Poppystamps dies.

By adding simple embellishments, ordinary brown or white paper bags are transformed into elegant wrappings.

by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_2160-wm

I paired it with a few old and new Poppystamps holiday dies, Holly Leaves and Berries, Jumbled Merry Christmas, and Valley Snowflakes to create a vivid, eye-popping Christmas card!  The background was created with white embossing paste and the Simple Chevron designer stencil from Memory Box.

Butterfly Gift Card Holder Tags
by Olga Direktorenko

There comes a day in every craftsperson's life when you realize you've got to do something with all those scraps you have, but you are terrified by the thought of throwing them away. So today is this kind of day to me!

I have chosen to make some tags to utilize some of the card stock scraps. The tag pockets are just the right size to put a gift card into.

Here are some photos of the tags as well as the VIDEO TUTORIAL on how to make them:
