Hello, tiny spiders
by Irena Kowalczyk

Here Irena again,
Today I prepared a tag that will be decoration for the coming Halloween.


I made tag using white and violet cardstock.
I used stencil 'Delicate Web' and Distress Ink Black.
Spiders cut out in black and silver cardstock.


I do not like spiders, but these tiny on the tag are harmless.


Thank you for your visit and wish you a happy crafting!

Halloween Party
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

I just LOVE Halloween parties, and all the thrills and chills that go along with spooky fun! These three little ghosts are inviting all of you to their Halloween party at their spooky mansion! I used a combination of new release and old favorites to create this spooky scene!


The new Haunted Mansion is such a fun die, you might see it a lot before tiny trick-or-treaters arrive at your door! It has so many little details to it, like tiny window frames and rooftop shingles. I'd love to make this home in about a dozen different color combinations too. Today I went with the bright colors--not too scary!

I used the Haunted Mansion from our newest release, along with the Trim tree, Group of Ghosts, Goofy Halloween Decor, Gentle Wave Collage, and the Stitched Circle Layers for the bright yellow moon.


We love to see what you create too! Play along with our September challenge, So Boss, and you might win a gorgeous new die or stamps set from Poppystamps!

Thanks for joining us today!

Diamond Pumpkin
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there! Marybeth here today with a diamond pumpkin shaker card! I love how this turned out!

I used Poppystamps Carved Diamond Pumpkin and cut it twice, sandwiched in between is a clear pouch

of mixed sequins and beads I made with the heat tool. I seamed the pouch to the shape of the pumpkin.

I also used foam tape three layers thick cut in very thin strips. 


For the leaves I used the fun Stitched Pumpkin Leaves from Poppystamps. To color the leaves I used distress inks in crushed olive and peeled paint.

 The sentiment is Give Thanks Brushed and only used the thanks , it’s layered twice.


I wanted to keep the card kinda simple since the die is already pretty intricate. I wish you could see this 

card in person. Hope you like it!

Pick Your Pumpkin
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

Sweet or Scary? The answer depends on what you think about spiders! This little spider is getting ready for Halloween, and he's come down to pick the perfect pumpkin.

I did something a little different today and made an all-white bright card, except for the spider, and the single thread of silky embroidery floss he's swung down. The Stitched Cobwebs have an amazing texture to them, so this card has a wonderful feel, and I hope I've captured it in the photographs well. If you like spiders and their environmental value, like I do, you might be on Team Sweet!


If spiders aren't your thing, you might be on Team Scary! I love the idea of a "giant" web and the red spider drawing you in. The Stitched Cobwebs,  Trim Tree, and the Spider Banner are all from the newest Poppystamps release. The Gourds and Pumpkins are a fall favorite. 

Thanks for joining us today! We've got a few surprises coming up in August that you won't want to miss, and our monthly challenge gives you a chance to win big, using your favorite old and new Poppystamps dies and stamps.

To the Moon and Bat
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

The batty season is on it's way as talk of fall and all things spooky are right around the corner! Today I have a colorful spooky card that might be a little more fun than fearful!


I started with a clean purple background against a black card stock base, and added a big, bright moon from the Stitched Circle Layers from Memory  Box Open Studio. Then I added the brand new Trim Tree and the Batty Triptych from Poppystamps' newest release!


This little pictorial illustrates a quick tip I use to make my cards pop. I cut the Batty Triptych in two colors, black and grey, and I wanted the entire square, including the thin frame edge to pop off the paper with a foam pop dot. So I cut a third square, in purple from the Shaker Square Frames, and glued the black and grey bat pieces to the purple square. Then I mounted the bat squares in a topsy turvy pattern, and added the Trim Tree and a few spooky sequins. It's an easy card to create with just a few dies!


Thanks for joining us here at Poppystamps today! Check out our current challenge, Shake It Up, and show us your spooky selves!

CAS Halloween Card
by Jeanne Jachna

Halloween Three
Jeanne here with a clean and simple Halloween card!  I love to send lots of card to friends and family for different holidays, and Halloween is one of my favorites.  This one is really easy so you can make a bunch.  And it's nice and flat too so no waiting in line at the post office to have it weighed!
Halloween copy
I started with a background panel that I colored with Peerless watercolors.  I started by covering the panel with a light orange and then just added dabs of darker orange here and there.   Peerless Watercolors blend beautifully.  The darker orange bled into the lighter to create a tie dye look.
Halloween Four
I cut the Hip Halloween Circle Frame from white and gold and then adhered them to the panel.  
Halloween Three
The bats are from the Stitched Batty Collage - there are three different size bats on one die. 
Halloween One copy
The finishing touch?  Some sparkle and shine of course - just a few sprinkles!   I think this one would be amazing in green or purple - or even grey!   What will you make today?

Tangled up by Lezlye Lauterbach


How fun is this! Oh My, I just love it when a project comes out just like I envisioned. Oh that always happens right? If you could only see all my tossed cards, snicker ;)

I used Memory Boxes webbed stencil and white pigment ink(stays wet) to create my background. I then Sprinkled and heated clear embossing powder over it, which gives the glossy look.



I Put Silver Martha Stewert Glitter on the web and glossy accents on the Happy Halloween sentiment. I also glittered and glossed the spiders. The spiders were hung with American Crafts twine in Purple. I wanted to bring some additional color into the card since there was so much black and green.

Pumpkin Series
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Today I have a series of pumpkin cards using the adorable Pumpkin die. Which YOU can win by commenting on this post! Yay!

Pumpkin series

I used a circle die from Open Studio then the pumpkin die with stitched leaves and tendrils to create this pumpkin card series. I couldn't stop there so I made a few more cuts to show how to use the positive and negative cuts.



I love the traditional Purple, orange and black for these cards.


Popping the stitched leaves and adding stickles makes for fun added dimension to the card.
