Poppystamps Fall Thank You
by Robin Tharaldson

October PS Full1 with Watermark

I am so ready for Fall! I know it is officially Fall, according to the calendar, but it is in the 90's here and on Monday we will hit the 100's. OK, not Fall in my world, lol. However, with the holidays almost upon us I find I never have enough Thank You cards and this sheet of wood veneer has been calling to me for a while; so I have been making a few Thank You cards to have on hand.

October PS CU1 with Watermark

I used Poppystamps Oak Leaf Oval Collage and Thank You Streamer dies to cut the wood veneer sheet. The dies cut through the wood like butter, seriously! Best part, the wood veneer I used is adhesive backed, woo hoo!

October PS CU2 with Watermark

I you don't have wood veneer I think this card would look great using a brown cardstock! I finished my card with sequins from Poppystamps called Not So Heavy Metal; this pack of sequins and glitter is perfect for a Fall shaker card! The following video shows how easy it is to make this card using wood veneer sheets!

 

I hope this post will inspire you to try using different materials on your projects! 

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Witch Collage
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4784-wm

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to the Poppystamps Halloween Blog Hop! We are bringing the spooky all week, and throwing in a few treats too just for you! Today I am sharing a spooky CAS shaker created with the brand new Witch Collage. Take a look!

IMG_4789-wm

I love this fun little die! The die itself is actually a circle, so you could make the base of your card any shape you'd like! I made mine super clean and simple in this little square shape.

IMG_4780-wm

I began this card by cutting and folding my card base out of a bright green. I then added a background panel piece of of watercolor paper stamped and spritzed with a few of my favorite Distress Oxide inks.

IMG_4781-wm

I used strips of very sticky foam tape to create a little well for my sequin mix. Thanks to some VERY helpful tips from a few Poppystamps fans, I sprinkled a nice coating of embossing powder all over the foam tape, shook off the excess, then heated it with my heat gun. It worked like a dream! The embossing powder created a little coating on the too sticky tape, allowing my sequins to slide and float with ease!

IMG_4783-wm

I adhered my witch collage panel onto the foam tape with glue, and added a few spooky green sequins. Originally, I had planned to add a few spooky little spiders swinging by, but decided I really like the look of this matte black silhouette witch with the shiny sequins behind her. What might you create?

IMG_4791-wm

Thanks so much for joining us today! Before you go, be sure to leave a comment below for your chance to win this wicked Witch Collage die from Poppystamps! Come back every day for more opportunities to win!

Happy Halloween
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0012

Hello! And welcome to my post featuring Poppystamps newest... Halloween release! It couldn't get more exciting around here, with the new stamps and dies. I get to feature the newest pumpkin set, Swirl Pumpkin and Harvest Pumpkin!

DSC_0016

DSC_0004

Oh how I love this time of year! Changes everywhere, from the weather, to the leaves on trees, fall is definitely in the air. Even the food we eat takes on a pumpkin spice flavor! (Lattes anyone?)

Pumpkin Swirl is everything Poppystamps is known for: perfectly sized and shaped with even the sweetest vine curled on top! And with it's mate, Harvest Pumpkin, you can use just the silhouette or back it with contrast color.

Let's look at how I made this card. I love to create a scene, and with a bit of drama for the Halloween season. Sponge inking a background came first, in colors that will let my pumpkins take center stage.

DSC_0001

Now for a slightly spooky tree...

DSC_0022

I created a stencil with Poppy's Birch Tree die, sponging it with a ghostly gray,  and next made a frame from Poppy's largest Pointed Oval Frames. 

DSC_0021

I cut the frame several times to pop it up, then added the sponge inked frame to the top of my stack.

DSC_0009

All 3 pumpkins were cut with glitter paper, and the orange pumpkin popped up with foam. My greeting is also a new die, Happy Halloween Signs. You're going to be seeing this set of sentiments a lot during the release. It's beyond cute, with just a bit of  'Haunted Mansion' flare to it!

DSC_0015

Are you excited? You could win the set of your choice by leaving a comment on the different posts all week.

Good Luck, Happy Fall and happy creating!

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.

Sending Hugs and Prayers
by Marybeth Lopez

Download-3

 Hi there, Marybeth here today! I am sharing a card I created with Poppy Stamps: Sending Scribbles and Sending Scribbles die set. Even though this is one stamp and die set it has many different ways to use it and I think the sentiments are perfect for many uses, seems to be my go to set right now.

Fullsizeoutput_a86

I used my Zig Brush pens, to color in my cut and stamped image. Since I used watercolor card stock I didn't  have to add much water as the paper drinks up the brush pens very well, and I wanted to keep the vibrant color. I scored some random lines across my white panel for some added texture. 

Fullsizeoutput_a87

Here is a picture of the dies and stamp set. If you look closely you can see I  have a cut out and stamped... Sending... sentiment  that I decided not to use this time. Instead I just tamped the sentiment with a soft gray ink.

Download-4

I used some pinkish orange and fall-ish colors for this card since its almost fall and still summer. I am really liking that pumpkin-ish color bloom and might add another one to this card.

Hope you liked it and as you can see anyone can create this card. 

Thank you for all the kind comments on the Blog Blitz!
