Falling Leaves
by Olga Direktorenko

Today's project is my attempt to make a clean and simple card. I have combined the new Stitched Maple Leaf Trio by Poppystamps with the older Majestic Maple die and they worked together perfectly. 

I have attached a shaker panel to the easel card base and also used a fun partial die cutting technique - check out the video below!

Chalkboard Slider Tag
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi there, 

There is a fun project I would like to share with you today - that is an interactive Halloween tag. To create this tag I have used the new Autumn Fairies stamp set along with the coordinating dies and Memory Box Straight Slider Grooves dies. 

My color choice this time was black and white to achieve a chalkboard look.

The fairy with a tiny Jack-O'Lantern is sliding out from behind an acorn house - watch the video to see it and to learn how to make this tag!

Sliding Into Fall with Poppystamps
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Sept 8 Slider Full

It's almost Fall and I'm still wondering where this year has gone! My Fall slider card features the new Autumn Fairies stamp and die sets and the Slider Grooves die set.

PS Sept Slider CU1

My Fall leaves are from the Stitched Maple and Oak Trio die sets. I used the large leaves, left over from my Fall wreath project, on the bottom of my card.

PS Sept Slider CU2

The Autumn Fairie and Acorn appear to fall into the pile of leaves. My sentiment, from the Autumn Fairies stamp set, was heat embossed onto a piece of chocolate cardstock.

PS Sept Slider CU3

The following video will show you how to assemble this slider card AND just to let you know...this is the first slider card I have made! It was much easier than I thought it would be, so give a slider card a try! 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Magical Lanterns
by Olga Direktorenko

To create this card I have used a beautiful and super intricate new die by Poppystamps called Chinese Lanterns. I have die cut it out of gold foiled cardstock, inlayed it into a brown background and made numerous vellum windows out of each lantern. 

All the techniques and creative process are disclosed in the video below.

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?

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.

Huckleberry Gift Tags by Jennifer Svare

Huckleberry6_Watermark

Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I am so excited to be a new member of the Poppystamps Design Team!  It was so much fun designing these huckleberry gift tags using the Pinpoint Main Street Tag set, along with the Holly Twig die from the new holiday release. To modify the design, I replaced the holly leaves with the leaves from the Viola Leaves die set. This tag features a swing-out card attached with an eyelet under the bow, so a favorite huckleberry recipe or note can be shared.  Two versions of berries are shown. 

Instructions are on the step-by-step video tutorial below!

Fairy Ballerina Spinner Card
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafty friends, 

I have been playing with Faerie dies for some time now and it's amazing how many opportunities they provide. They are different sizes and can be used with or without the wings, but I found out that they are also perfect for interactive cards. 

Today I have created a spinner card using two mirror faerie images. But if you only have one of those it will still do for this kind of card - just stick a thread and a pair of wings between the two die cuts! 

Watch the video tutorial below for detailed instructions.
