 My card features a fun tag with a heart shaped shaker. To create this card, I created a tag using a Festival Tag die which I die cut a heart shaped window using the Capri Heart die, filled with sequins and beads then layered with another Festival Tag die cut. The fun background was made using the Heart Pattern Plate die.

Thank You for Your Kindness
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a collection of thank yous I sent out for my birthday gifts last month.  Kansas seems to have completely forgotten how to produce snow, and winter really isn't much fun without such.  So, I'm willing the warm weather back with these springtime beauties.

 Let's take a look up close and personal.  Shall we?

  Poppy Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by die-cutting the Floral Stem Collage craft die from Coastal Cabana cardstock and its flower, in three layers thick, from Ballet Slippers cardstock.  I then anchored the center of the layered bloom with a soft yellow button, laced with white string; and embellished the petals with a sequin butterfly.

The "thank you for your kindness" sentiment was white-embossed, vertically, along the right edge of the die-cut window, which was backed with clear cardstock.

2.8.17 022
I then machine stitched a white-threaded, double, straight-stitch frame around the prepped piece's outside edges, before framing its backside with foam tape to house the shaker elements.  I couldn't decide whether I wanted to do a double or single, machine-stitched frame; and while the stitching does help anchor the clear cardstock to the backside of the window, a single layer is sufficient.  So, a few of the cards have only a single layer of such.

PLS Single Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin
A piece of white cardstock was then adhered to the kraft, cardstock, card face, before adhering the window in place over a healthy dose of heart, Sparkling Clear, and Seaspray sequins, as well as silver seed beads and those sweet, little, white, cardstock, Bunny Hop die cuts.  I just love how cute these tiny die cuts look in a shaker!

Happy Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today; and I'm so excited to be back, sharing a project, showcasing more of what our January 2017 Release has to offer!  This one made it to my brother-in-law, for his birthday, late last week.  Enjoy!

Poppy Happy Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in various shades of green.  I then speckled it with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before using the Happy Birthday Tag craft die to remove its center.  I then went back and filled in a portion of that center with a separate, Basic Black, cardstock, Happy Birthday Tag die cut.  The entire piece was then backed with a sheet of clear cardstock to create the window, which was filled in with a variety of sequins, seed beads, and a number of cardstock, Tiny Feathers die cuts.

1.9.17 084

For the back of the window, I used a plain piece of white cardstock so as not to compete with everything else that was already going on.  Black-threaded, straight, machine stitching secures all the layers together.  The entire piece was then popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape and dressed up with a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, embellished with a black, gingham bow, as well as a black button, laced with teal twine, tied in a bow.

Thanks, as always, for humbling us with a visit!  Have a blessed last day of January, and we'll see you next month!  Hugs!

Warm Winter Wishes Gift Cards
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, friends!  It's Jinny here today with a quartet of gift-card-wielding, Christmas cards for some of my nieces and nephews.  This is the first year I've turned to gift cards for the little ones, but I never know what to get them, especially being as we never get to see them and don't even know what they have or like.  Matter of fact, I haven't even yet met three of the four of them from my hubby's side of the family.  Then, in the past, when we haven't heard if the gifts were even liked or appreciated, well, it just makes it easier to send gift cards and let them pick out exactly what they want themselves.  At least, then, I'll be assured our precious dollars weren't wasted.  Plus, Poppystamps' Tucked Corner Tag die sure makes the delivery of gift cards ever so fun!

Poppystamps Warm Christmas Wishes Gift Cards - JinnyNewlinThey're all pretty much made the same, so I'll just take you through the making of one.

Poppystamps Warm Foxy Wishes Gift Card - JinnyNewlinI started by watercoloring and splatting a piece of watercolor paper in shades of aqua, turquoise, and green.  I then speckled it with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once that was dry, I used the Winter Snowflakes stencil to add a little texture with modeling paste.  While that was drying, I stamped a strip of vellum, in Jet Black ink, with the "WARM CHRISTMAS WISHES" sentiment and anchored it, as well as the watercolored piece itself, to the white, cardstock, card face, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  Before sealing up the far left edge of the vellum strip with more silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching, I tucked a handful of Sparkling Clear and silver star sequins in behind it.

12.12.16 017Our Tucked Corner Tag was then die-cut from white, glitter cardstock; punched with a simple hole in its top; laced with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow; popped off the surface of the card face with foam tape; and embellished with a textured Garden Green cardstock,  Holly Leaf Branch die cut.  Its center, too, was filled in with a Barnes and Noble gift card.

12.12.16 020Finally, I stamped the little fox on watercolor paper; watercolored her; die-cut her out; dressed her up with a little stamped, die-cut, and watercolored scarf; and popped her up, with foam tape, in the bottom left corner of the tag.

12.12.16 023The fox was then swapped out for the deer, otter, and cat, each individually dressed for winter, respectively.  While it's not showing up super good in these photos, they were also detailed with Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

Bauble Tree
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a really quick, clean and simple Christmas card.

P1340559c

I used the Bauble Tree die to make a fun and modern shaker card.

I started by die cutting the Bauble Tree Background from white card stock, then cutting the Bauble Tree from black card stock. The black piece will be paper pieced into the triangle cut out.

P1340583c

For some added colour  I took a piece of paper and swirled some green and blue paints on it and used that for the background of the tree. I added a bunch of stars and hexagon shaped sequins for the shaker elements and adhered everything together.

P1340571c

I used a sentiment from the Christmas Greetings set and stamped it on all sides of the tree and finished off with a yellow glittered star.

P1340570c

There are a lot of possibilities with this Bauble Ornament die, I think it's a great one to have in your stash!

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Snowy Christmas In the Woods
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters, Sue here with another Christmas card. Can you believe Christmas is just one month away! Wow, the time is flying by.

Today I'm showing a white shaker card that has a pop of colour.

P1340541c

I started off by die cutting the House in the Woods from wood grain card stock for a bit of texture. I turned this into my shaker element by popping it up on foam strips and backing it with blue glitter card stock. I kept the shaker bits simple by adding white and iridescent stars, beads and sequins. Just a few of each.

P1340549c

Next, the sentiment was stamped on the card base so I could work the snowflakes around it. I die cut a bunch of Ava Snowflakes from the same white card stock as the card base so the snowflakes would blend into the background.

P1340546c

This is an easy and fairly quick card to make. The part that takes the longest is adhering all those snowflakes!

I'd like to wish all our American friends a Happy Thanksgiving!

Winter Haven
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3825-wm

Hello Everyone!

I've got a fun card to share with you today! I've never really made anything quite like this before, and it turned out great! It was easy to make too! I created a bright, crisp, all-white shaker card and I only used ONE die! Take a look!

IMG_3823-wm

The card was created like any usual shaker card, with a base, front panel, foam stick tape, acetate, and a background piece. But I only used one die to make it, House in the Woods, from the latest Poppystamps release. It is such a beautiful die, I knew I wanted to create a shaker the very moment I laid eyes on it.

I made the entire card out of bright white card stock, and used white glitter background paper to make the sky sparkle behind the acetate. I filled the shaker with a handful of very tiny clear seed beads. I wish you could see how it sparkles in the light!

IMG_3840-wm

I added one tiny piece of green paper to light the windows in the house, to shine a light for a Veteran! It's a tiny safe winter haven in the snow!

I love how the House in the Woods die cuts such a detailed, intricate pattern with only one cut! You have got to try this!

While you're here, check out our Poppystamps challenge, Plaid is Rad! There's still time to play, and you might be a winner!

Thanks for joining me today!

Sept. Blog Blitz: Merry Christmas
by Jinny Newlin

Afternoon, y'all!  It's Jinny here; and I've got a card to share, for day one of our September Blog Blitz, that boasts a number of new goodies and is guaranteed to cool down the sticky, summer temps we've been having in my neck of the woods.  Enjoy!

Poppy Merry Christmas - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by smudging, from left to right, Spun Sugar, Dusty Concord, and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks, through the Winter Scattered Flakes stencil, onto a piece of white cardstock.  I then framed it with Elegant Eggplant cardstock and used that same color to die-cut this gorgeous Snowflake Channel.  The channel itself was backed with a strip of clear paper and anchored, to the prepped piece, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches, framing the entire stenciled piece as well.  Before sealing off the top edge of the channel with stitching, I stuffed it with a happy mix of sequins and seed beads.  9.19.16 013

It was then topped with our new Mitten String, die cut from silver, glitter cardstock and dressed up with a pink button, laced with Caribbean twine, tied in a bow, as well as stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die cut and watercolored, holly leaves.

9.19.16 008

The "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, across the top edge of the channel, just to the left of the mittens; and a random mix of stamped, in Jet Black ink, snowflakes complete the look.
