Poppystamps Fall Thank You
by Robin Tharaldson

October PS Full1 with Watermark

I am so ready for Fall! I know it is officially Fall, according to the calendar, but it is in the 90's here and on Monday we will hit the 100's. OK, not Fall in my world, lol. However, with the holidays almost upon us I find I never have enough Thank You cards and this sheet of wood veneer has been calling to me for a while; so I have been making a few Thank You cards to have on hand.

October PS CU1 with Watermark

I used Poppystamps Oak Leaf Oval Collage and Thank You Streamer dies to cut the wood veneer sheet. The dies cut through the wood like butter, seriously! Best part, the wood veneer I used is adhesive backed, woo hoo!

October PS CU2 with Watermark

I you don't have wood veneer I think this card would look great using a brown cardstock! I finished my card with sequins from Poppystamps called Not So Heavy Metal; this pack of sequins and glitter is perfect for a Fall shaker card! The following video shows how easy it is to make this card using wood veneer sheets!

 

I hope this post will inspire you to try using different materials on your projects! 

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Halloween Pillow Boxes
by Olga Direktorenko

My daughter loves drawing with gel pens and I thought that some pens with a cat head caps would be a nice alternative to candies for Halloween. So I thought why not make a matching gift box for them? 

I used black and white pastel paper, a couple of dies by Poppystamps and a white steel chain for jewelry making. Oh yes - and some silver embossing powder too! And here is what I came up with - just scroll down for the video!

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!

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.
