by Pam Simpson

Hello Pam hear today, I thought this "Evangeline Floating Square" from Poppystamps, perfect for a shaker card.. Mine does not shake!!!.


For the shaker part I have used viol material  with these beautiful sequins from Birchpress Designs.. http://birchpressdesign.com/Festival-of-Lights-Premium.html   such pretty colours and lovely mix.. they are perfect colour match for  my no shred glitter card.


These are the dies I used to create my shaker part. 


Mesh doubled ..held in place with 3d foam tape, left open at the top, to sandwich sequins, this I then sealed  more tape..


My none shaker square  filled with pretty sequins and decorated on the outside..4"x 4"


I have used an embossing folder from my stash, red ribbon with Poppystamps "Merry Christmas Banner" die along the top. Finished card  61/2" x 61/2"

Halloween card
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today..


Something I do not normal make is "Halloween cards" we do not celebrate this occasion here in the UK! as our oversea`s friends do, although it is becoming more popular now.

I think these ghost`s are really cute!

This is how I have placed them in this "Creepy Forest collage"


I have cut these Ghost in a piece of scrap card! placed onto my main card I will be using.


This is my "Creepy Forest" cut out of black card, I have placed this where I want my ghost to appear! 


Remove the black forest card..Leaving the cut out in place.. place the die onto the cut out and using a poky (pricking)  tool..mark the card through  the holes..Center & 4 outside holes. Remove the die and cutout, now place the die back in place..If you hold your card and die up together you can see the holes you have made with your poky tool.


 This is the finished topper, I have used dark purple as the backing card, foam tape used to add depth  to the layers..

Got my old Frantage out and did some distressing on "Stitched Maple Trio" with bronze/ black and chunky purple bits, also on the "Happy Halloween".love these googly eyes! "Witch Collage" comes in a circle when cut, I just cut her out and placed as shown.  


"Happy Halloween" text removed from "Hip Halloween Circle"

Bashful Fawn. pull slider card.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying seeing these wonderful cards using these New Slider Dies from our parent company Memory Box. I have used "Straight Slider Grooves"

You have until 12 am US EST September 13 to leave comments on these posts, to be in with a chance to win dies & stamps.


My first ever slider card! as I only received this die a few  days ago, kind of wondered what to create, I went with this cute Poppystamps Bashful Fawn. 


Start of my card..Poppystamps  Open Hillside & Pointed Rectangle Frame.  these I taped down to die cut together through my machine..


Added some shading with distress inks, adhered to a larger white card shape.


Hidden pull slider! hope you understand what I have done.. I have used the smallest die from Memory Box. Straight Slider Grooves set of three. card size around 4.1/4"x 1.1/2"  I cut roughly in the centre. On the reverse I used thick foam tape strips.. Make sure you leave room for the slider strip to run smooth(mine is 3/4") Leave one short edge NO tape! to pull your hidden message.

My Bashful Fawn die cut in fawn card colour I have glued this to acetate for strength. leaving plenty down the bottom to adhere as shown onto tiny piece`s on foam tape.. dust this with statistic powder   OR (Baby powder works great) make sure nothing is going to stick and your pull slider runs smooth.


Close up how I decorated the card front! did you notice I cut another "Open Hillside" adhered to the front with "Dotted Curve"to this.  where Bashful Fawn starts. 


He`s half way along now!.




Almost gone! 

Thanks for stopping by and don`t forget to comment..you have a chance to win a Slider Groove" die and stamp set of your choice! ..

Floral Dancer.
by Pam Simpson

Pam here today,  sharing a birthday card I made for a sweet girl who loves dancing.. 


I have tried to make the "Floral Dancer" look like she is on a stage..

This is how I started my card.. 


On the left  you can see the frame I made with my die placed for cutting..right  after cutting in my die cutting machine.

This is the main card..


.I have cut and scored two concertina strips, these will be attached with glue to either side of this card.. right as shown.


Background for the dancer, using distress oxide inks  and clear embossing so it looks light shiny lights.


Silver curtains made using "Stitched Hills"  Pink embroidery thread for tie backs.. adhered to the card sides of the dancer cut and adhered in the middle section of the concertina..


Next I adhere the frame to the left and right concertina sides, finished with "Happy Birthday Melody"  "Angwin Corner with "Blooming Blossoms"  flowers. 

Decorations Liquid Pearlescent and gems ..

Little Kindness.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today, sharing  a card using these new Poppystamps "Little Kindness" clear stamps and matching die set.


I have used heat embossable  Velum, clear Veramark ink pad, with "Stamp N Stuff"  Winter Wonderland embossing powder..Wish you could see the sparkle on these flowers and leaves.


Sentiment from the stamp set, Wow white embossing powder.


How I used my Misti for the placement of these stamps.


Showing you how these new "Pointed Oval Frames"  cut...I decided not to use this white and went with blue..(said before I tend to change my mind).. oval placed in the centre of a 6" square.


This is the card that has been die cut in my die cutting machine..Love the way these New Poppystamp Frames give you three possibilities to use on your projects.. 


I used just the white frame on my project.


"Delicate Stitches" make  lovely detail around your card, as they do not have a cutting edge! so can be placed anywhere you decide to use them.    


I have used "Butterfly Sprinkles"...Novo Jewel Drops around the border and in the oval, flowers I used some gems.

Peony Stems and Blossoms
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone,  I love flowers..Have you seen these beautiful "Peony Stems and Blossoms Stamps and Die set" from the New Holiday 2017 Release from  Poppystamps..



I have stamped these two flower sprays in versamark clear ink, then sprinkled white embossing powder over and heat embossed with my glue gun, next I used the matching dies to cut in my die cutting machine.


These Peony`s have been coloured with my Pro Marker pens.. I have added some background shading with Distress Ink Bundled Sage, the random dots are in the stamp set. 

I foam taped these flowers, onto an Open Studio "Stitched Oval" 


This is the Scallop  Stitched oval you can see in the background ..... I die cut "Pretty Stitches" snipped with scissors so it will go around a curve, adhered with strong sticky tape.. 



Finished with Bow.. butterfly sprinkles... gems.. Sentiment from "Fairy Greetings" CL452 clear stamps.  5.1/2" x 7" card size.

Thank you for stopping by today...Pam x.

Just Bling It.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today..

Sharing my card I made for our Poppystamps Challenge Blog this month..  Would love you to play along with us.


Sure you all love bling and sparkle on your projects



I have used Martha Stewart Glitter`s,   I first saw Dave Brethauer from Memory Box using this technique ..

like to watch..http://davebrethauer.typepad.com/outsidethebox/2017/03/glitter-inlay-technique.html   


I first adhered  double sided sticky sheet onto white card..remove the backing from the sheet, put aside.

Next I have cut  Poppystamps "Floribunda Collage die"  with white card.

Attached this to the sticky sheet on your put aside card.

I added one colour  Martha Stewart Glitter at a time (4 colours altogether) till my pattern was complete. 

I next added a purple card mat..

Next put strips on strong red tape on the reverse to add my ribbon as shown. this bow I tied with my Zutter Bow It All. leaving tails to adhere around the card corner.


I have done the same technique on my Poppystamps "Devyn" & "Emelia" Butterflies.. 


Sentiment from my stash and   "To Your Next Chapter" which is from "Sentiments Of Hello CL451" by Poppystamps. Using Encore Metallic Ink Enchanted Evening..

Main card shape is called a Trifold Card, I have used a die from my stash for mine.
I have finished with a few gems and pearl hearts.

Hope I have given you some ideas and you`ll join us over on Poppystamps challenge Blog with your card designs..Details are here and of course there`s a prize for the winner.
