Rustic Winter Wreath
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everybody!

Today I am sharing a card I created that was inspired by those frosty winter mornings in the country. I love waking up early and seeing the way the frost has covered the trees, and the wreath on the old barn door is a rustic Christmas welcome.


To create the rustic winter wreath, I cut 4 pieces of the Twisted Oak Branch, 2 in green and 2 in glittery white, and arranged them into a roundish shape. Then I added 2 Pine twigs, a Cheery cardinal, and tiny stars from the All-Star Collage. I used a fancy coppery patina paper, to look like rustic tin or copper stars on those beautiful old country barns.


We are so grateful you could join us here today!

Fall Thank You Card
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Aug 30 Full

Hi everyone! My post for today features two die sets from Poppystamps 2017 Holiday release, Stitched Oak Trio and Stitched Maple Trio! So many ways to use these beautiful Fall leaves AND the detail is amazing! These dies worked perfectly with my Fall wreath design!  To create the bottom of my card I used the Circle Bump Borders from Memory Box Open Studio. You could also use a circle die from the Circle Basics Set to create the same effect.

PS Aug 30 CU1

On the front of the card I used the Thank You Streamer die.  I cut the die three times and used spray adhesive to layer them together. My wreath is formed on top of a Pointed Circle Frame die to help keep it round!  The sentiment, is from the Little Kindness stamp set.

PS Aug 30 CU2

I used a warm, gold, metallic watercolor to flick onto my card front and wreath.  To finish the card I added my sentiment die cut, again using spray adhesive, and a natural twine bow!


Thanks for stopping by today!

Scribble Flower Thanks
by Sue McRae

Hello crafty friends! Sue here with a clean and simple card for you.


I started off by making my background panel using water colour paper and very loosely painting it with blues and purples. While this dried I die cut the Scribble Flower Circle from blue metallic card stock.

Next I created the frame for the card by die cutting the Thanks Corner from white card stock.


When the background panel was dry I die cut the Atessa Collage from the bottom right corner. I didn't want all the little pieces from the die cut to come out so I used an old warpy cutting plate with my Big Shot and this prevented the die from cutting all the way through the paper, leaving all the bits in place and easy to adhere to the card base.


I attached the thanks frame next and then the wreath but felt like it needed something else so I die cut a few flowers from silver glitter paper from the Daisy Cluster and adhered them around the wreath.


To finished off I added a few silver embellishments.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Warm Christmas Wishes
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a card, boasting a paper door all dressed up for the holidays.  So, let's get right to it.

Poppystamps Warm Christmas Wishes - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by embossing vertical grooves, into a wide strip of Oatmeal cardstock, to resemble bead-board and topping it with a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  A strip of vellum, stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "WARM CHRISTMAS WISHES" sentiment was carefully held in place near the bottom of the prepped piece, as all three paper bits were then anchored, onto a white, cardstock, card face, with brown-threaded, straight, machine stitches and their edges distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks.

The door was Cameo-cut from Crumb Cake cardstock; distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, as well as a little, Titanium White acrylic paint; backed with a piece of white cardstock, which had been coated with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks, rubbed through the Winter Scattered Flakes stencil; and adhered, tucked under the vellum, sentiment strip, in the center of the card face.  Our Home for the Holidays Wreath was then die-cut from Garden Green, Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, and Ballet Slippers cardstocks, as well as vellum, and stacked one on top of the other, while tucking each limb, leaf, and berry into the other, until it was full and fluffy and perfectly fit to hang on the door.  I also weaved in a few Always Artichoke, cardstock, Pine Twig die cuts.

It was then topped with a length of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow, and embellished with a lone pearl, backed with a Baker's Twine bow, to complete the look.

Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit, Poppystamps friends!  Be blessed!

Warm Wishes Wreath
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a quick card to make for the holidays.


I took the new Home for the Holidays Wreath and die cut it from green metallic card stock and copper card stock and tied a bow around them. Then I die cut and embossed the Snowflake Shimmer Ribbon from metallic blue card stock. Love the pretty embossed details on the snowflakes!


I used white linen card stock for my panel and die cut a decorative edge with the Elegant Contour die.

The sentiment was stamped in black ink on the white panel and I adhered all my pieces to this and finished off by adding the panel to a copper card base.


This is an easy card to mass produce and the colour combo possibilities are really endless. I also like that there's no bulk to the card so it makes it great for mailing.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Holidays Wreath
by Ilona Zbieg


Hi Poppystamps fans

Today is my second inspiration for Blog Bliz. 

I started this card by watercoloring a background. My background is not the traditional Christmas colors. I used yellow color to make it fresh.

In the next step I cut two wreaths  in two colors and glued one to the other. I created poinsettia using Holiday Poinsettia die. 

The inscription on a card in the same color as one of the wreaths.

Spring Wreath Thank You
by Marybeth Lopez




Congratulations to all the winners of the Blog Blitz! You can see if you won Here  We all thank you, for the kind comments you left.

I have a simple card here today that was fun to make!


 No, they are not enamel dots, I made them with the Holly Leaves and Berries die! I used watercolor paper and colored with my Zig pens, when dry I cut out the berries, then added Glossy Accents. Love that stuff!


I cut the Freida Wreath out twice in two slightly different shades of green . The top panel of my card has fun foam under it to raise it up a bit. 

Stamped with the; Hope and Thanks stamp set from Poppystamps .


I hope you have a wonderful week! Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled.

Freida Wreath
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone!


I am always fond of wreath dies because they are great for many occasions and can easily be changed for the different seasons. So I was happy to see a wreath in this new release, the Freida Wreath.

I die cut the wreath once from birch wood veneer paper and once from cherry wood veneer paper and layered them up for my card front.


To embellish the wreath I added flowers from the Daisy Cluster dies.

The large Hip Birthday Wishes die cut was glittered with Rock Candy Distress Glitter for a bit of sparkle and I added a few of the cute wee butterflies from the Butterfly Sprinkles die set.


For the background I used Color Bursts on water colour paper.


Leave a comment on this post to have a chance at winning the Freida Wreath and make sure to come back twice a day during the Blitz for more inspiration!

Happy Crafting!
