Merry Tags Card
by Robin Tharaldson

Sept22 Merry Full With


My project for today is featuring more products from Poppystamps 2018 Holiday release! If you haven't checked out the new dies and stamps just click HERE! For my tags I used the stencil that comes with Pinpoint Snowflake Sidekick Frame die set! What a great addition and so many uses!! My tags are framed using the smallest die from Stitchwork Rectangle Frames die set. 

Sept22 Merry CU2 NO

I have once again created a card that uses an A-10 (business) format; just a different look and still uses a first class stamp! As long as it isn't too heavy or exceeds 1/4" thick, lol! This size lets you be really creative with composition and design!

To finish my card I used Liquid Pearls to create the look of falling snow; I would much rather have just flicked some white paint, but we are still in the middle of a remodel and I can't find my white paint...along with a few other crafting necessities!

The following video will show you how this card goes together! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Anything Goes Challenge Reminder
By Marybeth Lopez


Hello! Marybeth here today! I am sharing  my card for the "Anything Goes Challenge"

I used Mistletoe and Holly stamp and die set from Poppystamps along with Playful Deer Stitched Frame


I stamped my image using lightly  colored ink on watercolor cardstock. I colored with Zigbrush pens and water, after dried I cut the berries out.



 I cut the deer and masked off the hill , to paint the deer.


You can see the fine and chunky glitter on this closeup , also... last minute I added Glossy Accents.


 I used some adhesive paper then added chunky  and fine white glitter. I cut the frame in kraft cardstock then added fun foam to the back. I never measure, just cut and fit scraps or you can recut a whole piece out of fun foam, it's  up to you.



Thank you so much for the visit, don't forget to play along for a chance to win! Anything goes.

Sending Joy
by Nancy Penir


Greetings Poppy Fans! If you love the holidays, and all the traditions that make them special, then creating holiday cards is right up there at the top of your 'to do' list. My card today is a combo of some of the newest stamps and dies and hopefully will inspire you to get cookin' on your holiday card making.


Holly Vine Sidekick Frame and Stencil lets you as artist, bring your special color touches to your cards.


After taping the stencil over the leaves, I simply added a bit of sponged ink on each holly leaf. Don't you love the way the veins of the leaves stand out after sponging on the ink? The added texture of color just makes them pop!


Poppy's Clear Stamps I used have matching dies, and note I cut 2 of the smaller poinsettia image. Here's why:


Once I finished copic coloring my poinsettia, I fussy cut the center petals of one, and adhered it to the center of the first whole image with a bit of foam tape. The very center has some Stickles added.


Plenty of room on the frame image to add my sentiment. First the word 'Joy' with embossing powder, then the rest stamped,

(note: the embossing powder I used is Ranger's Liquid Platinum), and JOY filled in with my copics.


Hope you're inspired to play with a few of Poppy's new holiday collection! And be sure to come back every day for more inspiration! Happy crafting!

Nutty As A Squirrel
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today! Today I am sharing a fresh and fun Fall card that features the adorable Busy Squirrel Trio! The very first time I saw these squirrels, I knew I wanted to create a card where that squirrel races up the tree! Just by using a bright autumn color palette, I was able to transform the Holly Vine and Sidekick Frame and Stencil from a holiday die to a Fall die. Never be afraid to really experiment with how many ways you can use a die, along with how you can use color to create a whole new look!


I cut the Holly Vine Sidekick Frame into a few different colors, because I wasn't sure just how I would arrange the color palette. I like the blue sky behind the white Birch Stitched Frame, but then I played around with a few different background colors before finally selecting white. I like the way the white really shows off the warm fall colors, and brightens the look of the card. I also changed my mind on the color of the squirrels too! They really stand out on the finished card!


Once all the pieces were glued in place, I added a few leaves from the Stitched Oak Trio, and used a tiny hole paper punch to make tiny red berries. Now my nutty squirrels have their very own fall playground!


Thanks so much for dropping by today and sharing a little Fall crafty spirit!

Holiday Blog Blitz! Trio of Joy
by Nancy Penir


Hello! And welcome back to Poppy's holiday release Blog Blitz. Nancy here, and I'm featuring a new die called, 'Mountain Hills Plate'. And if you're looking for a holiday die that does it all, and delivers easy breezy, this one's a must have!


The die measures an A2 size card, and cuts in 3 sections plus a frame. I chose to do my winter scene in shimmery shades of cardstock.


Perfectly easy to do 3 cards, with all the sections lined up with the 3 colors of cardstock.


Here's a tip for doing the 'joy' sentiment. I cut out the word from poppy's new Joy die, & ombred the die cut before stamping it with it's coordinated stamp from Tidings of Joy. I used my Misti to line up the word with the stamp, and simply inserted each

die cut before stamping. Once you do the first one, the others line up perfectly and easily.


A few snowflakes and a sprinkling of sequins, and my trio of Joy is done! Already planning to do more in other colors, maybe with glitter paper? 


Want to win this fabulous Mountain Hills Plate die? Just leave a comment. Winners will be announced on the 6th. Hope you win! And don't forget to comment each day of the blitz!

Day Four of the Poppystamps Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello! Welcome to the 4th day of the Blog Blitz! We are showcasing some of Poppystamps brand new Products and oh boy .... I am loving them all!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post if you would like a chance to win this absolutely amazing  Holly Vine Sidekick Frame and Stencil Set from Poppystamps !


Dave ( the owner) has a great video up on the store website if you would like to watch how he made a card using the same set but with ink blending.

I used a water-pen and Zig Brush Pens to color my card.

Tape the main panel , then tape down the stencil. I used frog tape because I like how easily  it comes off.


Here is a photo of some of the process. After I took off the stencil I watercolored the branches . I cut two lavers of this panel , layered them for a bit of depth. The watercolor paper is thick so two was just enough.


I watercolored the cabin then added the glittered roof. I cut a piece of fun foam , colored the door and window then glued together and on the main panel. I added Glossy Accents to the windows to look like glass.


Can you see the stencil above.... it comes with the die!

I hope you win this die set but if you don't..... I say hurry and get it before it gone!

Hope you have a wonderful week friends ! I am grateful for all your past comments , you are all so kind !

Daisy Frame Notepad Holder & Handmade Notepad
by Jennifer Svare

Daisy Notepad1

Hello!  I've been having so much fun with the Daisy Frame from the new release!  Today I'll share how I made a notepad holder from clear acetate, along with a notepad made from gingham paper from Birchpress Design.  

Daisy Notepad Padding Compound

The gingham papers are perfect for this project.  They are gorgeous, light colors with a perfect thickness; not too heavy and not too light.  This makes it even easier to make notepads that look sharp.  I had no idea how simple padding compound is to use, and I'll show how to use it in the video below.

The notepads were made using an assortment of paper colors, so each time a page is used, the color of the next piece is revealed through the clear acetate, creating different looks!

Here's a full tutorial video on how to make these fun notepads and holders:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Daisy Frame Hello
by Jeanne Jachna

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a beautiful day!  Today I'm sharing a card made with the new Daisy Frame die.  
The die is cut from white card stock and layered over a distress ink covered panel.  I wanted to put yellow where the flowers would be, green for the leaves, and blue skies in the center.  I started by inking the center with Tumbled Glass distress ink.  To avoid lines I inked the center with a stencil brush.  It lightly applies the ink so it takes a while to get good coverage.   I inked up the floral areas with Squeezed Lemonade from the outer edges.  Next I added Twisted Citron between the yellow corners.  It's always start with the lightest color and then add the darker shade gradually.  It's easier to add a little more color than to try to remove it later!
A Folksy Hello Script die made a simple sentiment, and a scatter of Stitched Fluttering Butterflies cut from gold glitter paper adds some sparkle and shine.
I added a Stitchwork Square Frame to give the card a finished look.
I hope you find some time to create today!

Sparkly Negative Spaces
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps winged bird die card 1

I love backing a negative space with a fun contrasting color like I did with the deep teal cardstock on the Winged Bird Die cut out of the dark grey. But I wanted to make the birds wings even more special. So, I filled them with a clear liquid adhesive and then added tiny star sequins. The liquid adhesive dries clear and dimensional, so any parts of the wing not covered by stars are still special.

Check out this quick video to see how I quickly pulled this card together!

How do you like to use negative die cut spaces? Die cut inlay? Making shaker cards? I'd love to hear! Thanks for stopping by!
