Merry Christmas Snowfall
by Robin Tharaldson

November Ps Full With Water

I love making holiday cards; Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! But Christmas seems to have crept up on me this year. My card is actually simple and you could make several by using the assembly line method. Just cut all the pieces one day and assemble the next!


Nov PS CU2 With

This card uses Poppystamps Merry Christmas Banner, Picket Fence, Birch Tree, Evangeline Snowflakes and Poinsettia Mini die sets!

Nov PS CU2 With

To create the look of snow I used a white gel pen! My background was made using a snowfall embossing folder.

 

Thanks for stopping by today and check back often for more inspiration from Poppystamps!

Peaceful Hillside

Hi there! I hope your weekend is going well! I love using these Hillside dies from Poppystamps , you have so many options. This is my first time using the darling :Tiny Fawn dies. I blended some ink on a scrap of watercolor cardstock then cut the fawns out. I was so tempted to add the spots, eyes and nose like Pam did( adorable) maybe next time.

I added a bit of soft green glitter to the trees and then left the card alone. I wanted to add a sentiment to the front but  decided to leave it blank and just let the trees and fawn shine.

I am showing the back side ( not very pretty) of my project so you can see how I add my fun foam. I  used my tape gun to add tape where needed, add the fun foam and trim where needed. I then placed a piece of vellum over the opening to give a soft sky.

Happy Saturday, everyone! It's getting close to Halloween, and I just finished a new card going to a friend's children.

I said it before, I LOVE the Halloween Costume Cats stamps and dies! They just tickle with their sweet little grins.

All my kitty die cuts were copic colored. Border cut from glitter paper & Oak Leaf Oval Collage cut and colored too.

Shaker elements: Buttons Galore and More Spooky Fun.

What little one doesn't love an interactive shaker?

Hope you enjoyed today's Poppy Post, and got some ideas for Halloween cards.

Have a great weekend!

Hello Everybody!

We are SO happy you could join us today for another spooky Halloween scene! This new Halloween collection has so many fun little dies that work together so well, our design team can't put them down! We are creating a collection of spooky scenes that shows off our own unique styles. What will you create?!

IMG_4854-wm

I created a bright and colorful Halloween scene, starting with the Creepy Forest Collage, then adding the Doodle Jack O' Lanterns, Bat Ring, Crooked Fence, and Mr. Batty. It's amazing how many ways you can combine this group of dies to create something new!

Creepy Forest Scene
byJeanne Jachna

Pumpkin-Night-Two
I hope you're having a great day!   Halloween is creeping up fast and I thought I'd make a scary scene to share today! 
Pumpkin-Night-Two

I started with the Creepy Forest Collage die! It's my favorite from the new fall release.  I love that branch with the curled end beckoning you to come closer!   Even the leaf cutouts around the edges resemble eyes watching you! 
Pumpkin-Night-Two
I added a big full moon inside the frame created by layering three circle die cuts.  The Stitched Hills die are cut from purple cardstock.
Pumpkin-Night-Two
Whenever I make a card with a scene I think it's so important to add lots of details.  They bring the card to life.  The Doodle Jack O Lanterns have yellow light shining from inside, and there are leaves rustling in the wind.
Pumpkin-Night-Two
Bats are emerging from their daytime slumber and there's even a creepy spider hanging out in the tree!   So frightfully fun! 
Pumpkin-Night-Two
I choose most of the colors for the contrast they would have against the black frame.  The orange sky provides great contrast and still works with the Halloween theme of the card. 
Pumpkin-Night-Two
Have a fantastic day! I hope you find time to create something beautiful!

Happy Halloween
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0012

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!

DSC_0016

DSC_0004

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.

DSC_0001

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!

 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.

Holiday Blog Blitz: Holly Twig
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a few new goodies from our latest 2017 Holiday Release.  Please forgive my photography skills, though.  White is super hard for me to photograph, but it's ever so striking in real life.  Enjoy!

Poppy Season's Greetings Jar - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by rubbing Broken China Distress Ink, through the Winter Scattered Snowflakes designer stencil, onto the center of the white cardstock, card face.  Over the stenciling, I created the scene with die cuts, beginning with an older Ava Snowflake, die-cut from white cardstock.  The rest of the die cuts all came from this latest release.  The Double Pine Cone Collage was die-cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock.  Tip:  Use the negative die cut as a template for gluing each of those little bits into their proper places.  The Wispy Pine Needles were die-cut from Old Olive cardstock.  The Holly Twig, which you have the opportunity to win on the blog today (Woot!  Woot!), was die-cut from Soft Suede and Garden Green cardstocks; and Xmas Red Stickles was used for the berries.  Finally, the Cute Fawn was die-cut from watercolor paper and watercolored.

8.8.17 027

I then die-cut the largest jar, from the new Jar Collection craft dies, in the center of a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" white, glitter paper.  A strip of vellum was gold-embossed with the "season's greetings" sentiment, taken from our Christmas Greetings stamp set, and adhered along the vertical, left edge of the backside of the die-cut jar, sandwiched between the glitter paper and a sheet of clear cardstock.  The edges of the glitter paper were then framed with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  Tip:  Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, machine-stitching the glitter paper and clear cardstock together also ensures that they stay put for the long haul.

8.8.17 033

The prepped, jar panel was then popped up, with foam tape, over everything else; but before it was adhered in place, I added lots of white glitter, to the scene itself, to create a shaker effect.  Tip:  Apply a thin layer of baby powder over all the glued bits, as well as to the backside of the clear cardstock, to prevent the glitter from sticking itself in all the wrong places.  The lid was die-cut from gold cardstock; hand-cut along its bottom edge; adhered to the top of the jar; and embellished with a couple of Garden Green cardstock, Holiday Holly die cuts, as well as a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, studded with a single, white pearl, to complete the look.

8.8.17 037

Be sure to stop back by every day through next Tuesday, August 14, 2017, to see what my talented teammies have cooked up, using all the newly-released goodies, just for your viewing pleasure.  AND don't forget to leave lots of love as you visit; because a new, Holiday Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Thursday, August 17, 2017, to do so.  Winners will be announced, right here on the blog, the following Friday, August 18, 2017.  As I said before, I've got that fabulous Holly Twig craft die, that you see in action above, to giveaway today.

That's it, from me, for today, friends.  Actually, that's it, from me, for Poppystamps.  It's my time to move on; but before I do, I have to send out a massive thank you to Jeanne for her friendship and loyalty.  She has unwaveringly believed in me and, without a doubt, been my biggest cheerleader.  I also wanted to thank Dave for giving me the opportunity to work with his gorgeous and intricate dies.  I have been stretched creatively beyond my wildest imagination but, truly, in such a good way.  And finally, thank you to each and every one of YOU, my faithful followers.  I hope this won't be the end for us and that you'll continue to come along with me on my creative journey.  What's in store is sure to surprise you as much as it does me, but I can't wait to see what it may be!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and good luck with ALL the glorious prizes during release week!  Be blessed!
