Blog Blitz! Love Shaker
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0021

Happy New Year, everyone! Poppystamps is in full Valentine mode with a Blog Blitz featuring all new Valentine dies!

I'm showcasing 'Love Stitch Circle Frame'. Together with another new die, 'Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames', here's a little inspiration for a 'Love Shaker' card.

DSC_0002

I cut several of the love circles, one in white, 5 in red. Rather than use foam, I love the look of a contrast color to pop up my die cut.

DSC_0007

The scalloped frames can be cut apart and used individually, but I kept them together and embossed a A2 sized card for an all over lacy look for my background.

DSC_0009

A bit of Birch Press Design ribbon and some glitter dipped paper roses, and my shaker is ready for my valentine!

DSC_0012

I used a combo of red sequins and red sequin hearts for my filler.

This angle gives you a better look at how I assembled the die cuts.

Don't forget, each comment during the blitz gives you a better chance to win one of the new Valentine dies! Hope you win!

Poppystamps January Challenge: Snow Day
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5072-wm

Hello Everyone!

There is so much going on here on the Poppystamps blog, you won't want to miss a thing! In addition to our amazing blog hop, where you could win every day, we have an exciting January challenge we would love you to join! This month, our theme is Snow Day! Create a card or project with your idea for Snow Day, and link it up here on the blog for your chance to win some brand new blog candy!

01-18+copy

Growing up in Wisconsin, Snow Days meant winter fun and friends! Now that I live in the deep South, I sometimes miss seeing the beautiful winter landscapes, quiet and white,  fluffy snow covering everything like a blanket. At night, hues of purples and greens would wave through the starry sky like a searchlight. For my Snow Day inspiration, I created a simple shaker, crispy snow white and filled with sparkly sequins.

IMG_5070-wm

If you've never made a shaker card before, let 2018 be the year you give it a try! The idea is simple; create a "well" out of foam tape or craft foam, fill it with sequins, then add your cover panel. Make sure you've added a window too, which can be made from just about anything you have in the house, such as plastic packaging, or a recycled clam shell. I usually make a lot of shaker cards, since I love they way they sound, so I go to the office store and get a pack of clear computer pages. You can also purchase individual sheets too if you'd like to start small.

IMG_5066-wm

You can fill your shakers with all kinds of fun materials too! I used purple, green, and blue sequins to remind me of the Northern Lights! You can use a mix of sequins, tiny seed beads, tiny confetti or paper cuts, chunky glitter, coffee beans, be creative! One time I made a shaker with black Tahitian sand, a few tiny shells and a magical "pearl"!

IMG_5067-wm

You can make a Snow Day shaker, or some other Winter fun Snow Day idea, using at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, and you might be randomly selected to win a $20 gift certificate to use in the Poppystamps shop! We can't wait to see what you'll create!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Christmas Shaker Wreath
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_e6e

Hi there, Marybeth here  today. I used the Ball Wreath again this time for a Christmas Shaker with added holly from Wintertime Fairies, both from Poppystamps .

Fullsizeoutput_e44

This is the ugly back side of my card showing you the fun foam channel I created to fill with sequins. After I filled it I adde a piece of vellum over the opening. I was a bit messy with the sequins and some stuck to the tape on the back of the fun foam.( try not to do that....lol) Oh before I placed the fun foam I added a layer of acetate over the die opening.

Try not to see my thumb... the lighting in the room I take photos is not good this time of year unless I take the photo in the morning. I added a bit of glossy accents and a bit of glitter to the berries. I used shimmer pens on the holly leaves.

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?

Thanks so much for joining us today! Before you go, be sure to leave a comment below for your chance to win this wicked Witch Collage die from Poppystamps! Come back every day for more opportunities to win!

Sending Hugs and Prayers
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0009 2

Hi everyone! I have a card today showcasing a new stamp and die set from Poppystamps called, Sending Scribbles.

It's wonderful to have the option to use matching dies when creating a card!

Here's a look at what I used:

DSC_0004

I made my card a shaker using the Curved Banner Frame die, stamping inside and on the banner.

DSC_0006

All those cute little shaker elements are from an online shop called Buttons Galore, (more about them later this month!),

and come already mixed. This vial of sequins and beads is a Candy Cane mix. I sprinkled a few on the outside of the shaker too.

DSC_0010

The banner's been cut 3 times to pop up a bit, and the bottom flowers also popped up with foam.

All my images were colored with Ranger's Distress Oxide Inks.

Hope this inspires you to get creative with some of your stamps and dies! Have a fabulous day!

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!

Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_8c6

 Hi there ! I hope you are enjoying the Poppystamps Blog Blitz !

As soon as the new dies came back in July I sat down to make this shaker card just for fun , I liked it so much I thought I should use it for the blog blitz!

Download

My top layer is watercolor paper to add a bit of texture. I added a layer of acetate under the second layer of paper, then added glass beads for the shaker.

I cut the word Merry, from the new Merry Frame and the word Christmas, from the new Christmas frame. I love that I now have an easy "Merry Christmas" sentiment to add to any of my Christmas cards. I sure need to get busy , I usually have about half  of my Christmas cards completed  by now.
