Each of these cuties comes with the body form and it's corresponding outfit. All set for you to decorate your gingerbread boy or girl. I cut mine from cork, which kinda reminded me of gingerbread. Also cut the cottage from cork.

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!

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

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!

Snowy Window Card
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps snowy day window card

Making a snowy window scene is easy with the new Poppystamps dies! The Large Window Cut Out die is perfect for any window scene and card theme. But, I especially loved pairing it with the Shiny Snowflakes dies and the Mini Poinsettia's to create a snowy, holiday or wintery card.

I also used some snowflake stamps and a sentiment from the Wintertime Fairies stamp set. Check out this video to see how I created this window scene.

The window die is so versatile, I could see myself using it for every season of the year! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Poppystamps Masquerade Challenge Card
by Robin Tharaldson

  Masquerade Challenge Full

I hope you are enjoying Poppystamps October Challenge, Masquerade! Using stencils is an easy way to create interesting backgrounds and effects on your projects. And making a mask or stencil from your dies is a great way to expand their use.

 

October PS CU 5 Snowflake with watermark

I used Memory Box Sprinkle Dots stencil and Dreamweaver Silver Embossing Paste. Love the texture and sparkle from the silver paste! I have also used this stencil for whispy windy backgrounds using a light blue ink.

October PS CU 6 Snowflake with watermark

I used Poppystamps Swirled Joy and Stitched Alpine Snowflakes dies for my card. The Joy was cut three times using red cardstock and glued together for added dimension. The snowflakes were cut once from silver glitter cardstock and then two more times using white cardstock.

I hope you are enjoying the Masquerade Challenge and be sure to upload your projects

Magical Fairy with Hidden Slider
by Jennifer Svare

Slider5

Hello!  I hope everyone is enjoying the slider week so far!  I have really enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful and fun designs.  I've always loved sliders, but they have seemed intimidating to me, so I never tried one until now.  I'm so glad I did!  They are not at all as difficult as I had imagined.  Super easy and fun.  I used the Straight Slider Grooves craft dies to create the slider track.

The slider track on this card is hidden behind the front frame.  The ribbon on the right pulls the message tab out, moves the fairy, and also reveals colorful dots of "Show" along the way!

Slider4_Watermark

When closed, there are no colors, but as the fairy slides along, colorful dots of "snow" are revealed along the way.

The Wintertime Fairies set is so cute and has so many possibilities.  I can't wait to incorporate more of these adorable designs perfect for sider cards!

Video for the slider card below shows how to incorporate the basic idea of this slider card mechanism into your dies and design ideas:

Wintertime Fairies Slider Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0084

Hi there! Nancy here, and I have an interactive card to show you today. It's Slider Week at Poppy, and Memory Box has released a new die set to help you create a slider.

DSC_0003

The set offers 4 sizes and shapes, and is used with your stamps. Let me show you.

If you've never done a slider card, You Tube has several videos and how-to's. My slider is made with 2 pieces of foam fit together within the cutout, and attached to my fairy. A pulltab with ribbon slides the image through the slide.

DSC_0008

The stamp set I used is from the darling new Wintertime Fairies, (coming soon!) and has a coordinating set of matching dies.

DSC_0074

The sweet holiday fairies set has 3 fairies in different poses. I stamped, cut and colored my fairies and images first, 

and created my background card base from Distress Oxide Inks. On the bottom of the card I created a stencil by tearing a piece of paper in the shape of a hill before spritzing it with white spray. 

DSC_0087

The scene has the flying fairy starting at one end of the card, and flying to the other end, lighting the Christmas lights banner.

DSC_0086

I hope you enjoyed my slider post today. Remember to check back to see how each designer  used this useful and fun die set!

And don't forget to leave a comment to win a stamp set of your choice. Good luck!

Sewing in the Snow
by Jennifer Svare

Sewing8_Watermark

Hello!  This card was "sew" much fun to make!  The unique background sprang from mixing the Sew Fond of You clear stamp set and die with the Stitched Alpine Snowflake set. I wanted a cheerful, bright wintery card that matched the sewing theme. How about an embroidery floss background that looks like colorful scribbles in the snow? 

Sewing2_Watermark

Laying the strings where they landed on top of double-sided adhesive and then adding Flower Soft snow to fill in the gaps was the perfect solution. The texture is sturdy and has a very unique feel and look to it. It sparkles just like snow. I loved how this turned out, and it was not only easy and fast, but FUN! 

A ric-rac string was cut from the Ric Rac Stitches set, and the largest snowflake from the Stitched Alpine Snowflakes set was placed as the base to a button with a tulle bow.

Stitched Alpine Snowflake Band
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0007

Well hello poppy stamp fans! Welcome to the day after the big holiday Blog Blitz! Did you love all the samples by the design team? Wow! Some fabulous new stamps and dies. I have a card to show you that I made using the new Stitched Alpine Snowflake Band.

DSC_0009


My card is nearly square, 5 1/2 x 5 3/4" to accomodate the whole die. I wanted to use the whole image, white on aqua, and aqua on white. This is such an easy card to make. The die is so lovely, and I wanted it to shine. Literally! I used shimmer cardstock!

DSC_0010

I used the white under the blue, and visa versa on the other side. Sequins just add to the wintery shimmer, don't you think?

DSC_0008

Hope you enjoyed another look at one of the new dies. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this one! 

Have a great week!
