Falling Leaves
by Olga Direktorenko

Today's project is my attempt to make a clean and simple card. I have combined the new Stitched Maple Leaf Trio by Poppystamps with the older Majestic Maple die and they worked together perfectly. 

I have attached a shaker panel to the easel card base and also used a fun partial die cutting technique - check out the video below!

Chalkboard Slider Tag
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi there, 

There is a fun project I would like to share with you today - that is an interactive Halloween tag. To create this tag I have used the new Autumn Fairies stamp set along with the coordinating dies and Memory Box Straight Slider Grooves dies. 

My color choice this time was black and white to achieve a chalkboard look.

The fairy with a tiny Jack-O'Lantern is sliding out from behind an acorn house - watch the video to see it and to learn how to make this tag!

Magical Lanterns
by Olga Direktorenko

To create this card I have used a beautiful and super intricate new die by Poppystamps called Chinese Lanterns. I have die cut it out of gold foiled cardstock, inlayed it into a brown background and made numerous vellum windows out of each lantern. 

All the techniques and creative process are disclosed in the video below.

Fairy Ballerina Spinner Card
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafty friends, 

I have been playing with Faerie dies for some time now and it's amazing how many opportunities they provide. They are different sizes and can be used with or without the wings, but I found out that they are also perfect for interactive cards. 

Today I have created a spinner card using two mirror faerie images. But if you only have one of those it will still do for this kind of card - just stick a thread and a pair of wings between the two die cuts! 

Watch the video tutorial below for detailed instructions.

Summer Hello
by Olga Direktorenko

Have you checked out all the new fabulous flower dies by Poppystamps? They are so much fun to play with I couldn't help creating a summer bouquet with them. 

Another clever die is a Halo Hello that consists of a word die cut and a "halo". The halo can be used to create a background/shadow for the word, but I have decided to use a negative space to turn it into a shaker window.

Check out the video tutorial below for the detailed explanation of the process!

Ballet Diorama
by Olga Direktorenko

Poppystamps came out with the beautiful collection of Faerie dies of all sizes. The moment I saw them I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them. Each faerie die has a pair or wings but it can be used with or without them. I have chosen 3 sizes of images to make a ballet scene diorama. It is fun to make and easy to assemble - check out the video tutorial down below this post!
