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?

Happy Halloween

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Download-7

 I use fun foam when I make a shaker.  I add adhesive and then start laying fun foam on the back and trim where needed , I like it much better then foam tape. I added vellum to the back of the shaker after filling it up with a sequin mix, then I place it on top of the card base. I think the vellum gives it a bit more sound when you shake it.

I sniped the two little ghost from Ghost Collage to add to this little spooky scene , yet still very friendly for some of my younger grand-darlings.

Ghost-Collage-Two

Thanks for stopping by!  You picked a great day for a visit!  Our Fall Release Blog Blitz begins today!   What?  You're not familiar with our Blog Blitz??? We'll you're going to love this!  For the next several days (September 16-26)  the design team is sharing projects made with the new Fall Release (you can see all the dies and clear stamp sets in the store here).    And as a special treat for you we'll be giving away one of the new dies on every post during the blitz!!  I'll give you all the details at the end of this post.. but first.. let me share a card I made for today!
Ghost-Collage-Six
This is the new Ghost Collage die!  It's a negative die cut that will be great for shaker cards, and treat tags!
Ghost-Collage-Five
I started with a handful of colorful card stock in shades of purple, orange and green.  I cut the Zig Zag Stripes once with each of the colors.  This will give you enough strips to make three cards! 
Ghost-Collage-Four
I cut the Ghost Collage with a Circle Layer Die around it to make the white die cut you see in the photo.  I cut a second slightly larger circle from black card stock to place behind the ghosts.
Ghost-Collage-Three
The new Happy Halloween Signs has a gothic look with the fancy end embellishments.  I love that the letters are attached making the sentiment easy to adhere to my design without searching out each letter.
Ghost-Collage-one
A few sequins add the right amount of sparkle. 
Ghost-Collage

Halloween Party
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG3497-wm

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!

IMG_3486-wm

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.

IMG_3495-wm

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

DSC_0291shakerps

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. 

DSC_0296shakerps

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.

DSC_0277shakerps

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!
