When I first started this card I wanted to make it mostly all white white ,  ended up  fine gold shimmer paper and white.

You can either leave the inside in or out and change the color. This one die has so many possibilities .

 

Fullsizeoutput_2d83

I added the white part of the frame onto Kraft cardstock and then decided to add the negative part of the die, back in. I really like both.

I layered my dove a few times and then decided to glitter the last layer with fine glitter. I added sticky paper, cut it out  then glittered it .

by Jeanne Jachna

Joy-Two
It's Jeanne here today and I'm bringing you tidings of great joy!  We're starting our Winter / Holiday blog blitz TODAY!  That means we're sharing projects made with the new products and hoping to inspire your holiday makes!!  We've got lots to show you and lots of prizes too!   You can see all the 2019 Holiday Release products in the store here!

Joy-One

I made my holiday card look like a present!  I started with a solid double matted card stock background.  I topped the panel with two Grosgrain Ribbon craft dies to look like ribbon over the blue wrapping.
Joy-Four

The Holiday Joy craft die comes with an outline word die as well as a shadow background die.   That means you can use the word with or without the background making it more versatile.  I love the little cut out leaves that adorn the ends!   I filled in their centers to add some extra color. 
Joy-Three
The Delicate Poinsettia die set contains three die cuts.   I cut each layer from a different shades of red and stacked them with the lightest in the center.  I had some assorted size half pearls perfect for embellishing the flower center but some NUVO Drops would work great too! 
Joy



And now the part you've been waiting for.  The prize today is the Delicate Poinsettias craft die.

Challenge reminder Anything goes
by Tina Wilstrup


Watermark1.567069031912E12

Hi there Poppy fans, are you playing along with the September challenge? I hope you are! It's an easy one - Anything goes - and here's a reminder with my inspiration. Having just sent our old boy across the rainbow bridge I knew I had to use the Whittle dog along with this sentiment.

Watermark1.567068860121E12

I started by cutting the Hearts trio show case die from a leftover piece of yupo paper that I made a while ago. I used Copic re-inkers RV04, RV02 and RV00. From the same piece I also cut the Whittle dog. For just the slightest contrast I die cut the Hearts trio die and the largest of the Pointed rectangle frames from a white shimmer cardstock.

Watermark1.567068980892E12

I placed the large frame as well as the white panel. I adhered the small frames from white shimmer cardstock using a T-ruler to align them and then inserted the yupo paper pieces. I stamped the sentiment from Whittle everyday stamp set in a matching pink ink and adhered the Whittle dog.

Watermark1.567068860121E12

So there you have it. I decided to keep it simple. It felt right given the circumstances.

I hope I have inspired you and to play along! We always love seeing what you create, and you might win a $20 gift certificate to the store!

Halloween / Fall Blog Blitz - Haunt it
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.567696050096E12

Hello Everyone! We are showcasing the halloween/fall release in this Blog Blitz and have I got a fun spooktacular card for you today! You may want to get a warm cuppa and get cozy, because this has lots of details!

Poppy how to

I had this scene in my head and so I planned out where I wanted everything. This finished card is 5x7 inches to fit everything in. I die cut the Magical cauldron, because I wanted the steam parts to show. I placed the cauldron back in, securing it on the back, and also added a tiny piece of gold cardstock behind the holes. I ink blended the panel with Twisted citron, Spiced marmelade, Seedless preserved and Black soot Distress oxide inks. I also diluted a drop of gold acrylic paint with a little water and splattered it over the cauldron.
Poppy how to

I had watched a video of a pull tab technique and decided it could be done without the dies. So I created the pull tab out of black cardstock and cut a narrow strip out of the panel. Make sure you first place your elements and test placement before cutting.
Poppy how to

Pulling the pull tab "arms" through the slot and - again - testing placement, I could mark the pull tab with a pencil to cut off the excess so it wont show on the finished card. Pull the arms back out, cut with your scissors and reposition arms and surprise element. I was placing the Happy Jack O Lantern over the Scary ghost. Since the ghost wasn't quite covered I cut it to size. When placing the Jack o lantern I popped it up with foam squares, making sure they wouldn't be in the way of the ghost going up and down. With a strip of cardstock I secured the pull tab on the back. Also, when adding craft foam to the back I made sure it didn't colide with the pull tab.
Poppy how to

I colored all the die cut elements with Copics, giving them the look of a glow on the one side. This is the Spellcaster witch, how cool is she!
Poppy how to

Here I've used the Friendly cat and the smaller pumpkins are from the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick frame. I also wanted the cat to have a little cauldron-glow and the eyes are made with a gold pen. The sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set is heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Watermark1.567696145084E12

So here's the card showing the surprise ghost. I let the pull tab stick out from the top of card, looking like a tombstone that rises when the ghost appeares. On the top of the tab I wrote PULL with a gold pen.
Watermark1.567726973261E12

And guess what! I couldn't help myself from throwing in a little extra fun, so I heat embossed the ghost with a glow-in-the-dark embossing powder. I think it looks so cool!
Watermark1.567696145084E12

So much fun right?

Hi everyone, hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Our Blog Blitz continues and today's prize is a beautiful Magical Cauldron die from the latest Poppystamps release! You just have to leave your comment down below by midnight September 23 for a chance to win!

Cauldron

This is a project that I have created using this die along with some other dies from this release (see the product list below!). It's a Halloween card that is light and bright rather than dark and gloomy.

BrightHalloween1

All I did is sticking down the inked die cuts on top of an embossed background. I also added a layer of glaze onto the focal image (the cat). 

BrightHalloween2

I am also including a step by step video guide in case you would like to reproduce this design! Enjoy the video and don't forget to comment for your chance to win a new die!

Fall / Halloween Blog Blitz - Maple Trio
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Post 9.12.19 3 of 5 with watermark

 

Hi Everyone!

As the newest member of the Poppystamps Design Team, I am continuing the Fall /Halloween Blog Blitz showcasing a fall theme card using the new Maple Trio and Autumn Leaf die sets. When I think of the fall season, I often envision the trees turning colors and piles of leaves scattered throughout the yard. The inspiration for today's card is my vision of a the beautiful fall leaves captured on a stunning wreath. 

To make this card, I first die cut each of the leaf images from white card stock 5 times. This ensured I had enough leaves to build a full wreath. 

Poppy Stamps Post 9.12.19 5 of 5

Next, I took my Distress Inks in the colors Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Ground Expresso, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss and sponged on two different but coordinating inks to each leaf.  This allowed the leaves to have an ombre appearance and look more realistic. The color combinations I used were, Barn Door with Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber with Crushed Olive, and Forest Moss with Ground Espresso. I colored two of the leaves each in one solid color of Mowed Lawn and Ground Espresso.  

Poppy Stamps Post 9.12.19 2 of 5

I then die cut two circle frames from the Double Stitched Circle Frames dies using both the second and third largest circles from the stack. After my frames were cut out, I then began adhering the colored leaves to the second largest circle frame with some liquid glue.  I started with my largest Maple leaf image, then adhered the largest leaves from the Autumn Trio set and then moved to the next smaller leaves ensuring the leaves were layered on top of one another in various different directions. I continued this pattern until all of the die cut leaves were adhered. 

Poppy Stamps 9.12.19 Post 1 of 5

Next, I took the negative circle piece from the third largest double stitched circle frame and inked it with tumbled glass distress ink. I then stamped the Happy Fall sentiment from in black ink and attached the wreath image and sentiment to a 4 x 5.25 inch piece of white card stock that was embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder. The sentiment was popped up using foam tape. I embellished the card with some gold enamel dots from my stash and attached the entire card front to a my 4.25 x 5.25 inch card base. I really like how this card came together and the fine embossed detail each of the leaf dies showcase.

Challenge Reminder
by Jeanne Jachna

Bloom
Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I'm interrupting the Fall / Halloween blog blitz to bring you this important message :P   HAHA!  I want to remind you that if you love to craft you should be playing along with our monthly challenge! 
Bloom-Three
I'm playing along with this clean and simple card featuring the FUN FLORAL SIDEKICK Frame! 

09-19

The challenge this month is ANYTHING GOES so there is no excuse for not playing along.  If you've never played before it couldn't be easier.  All you need to do is make a project... it could be a card, tag, home decor project etc. take a photo of it and upload it to a gallery like Splitcoaststampers, Flickr, or Instagram.  Just copy the url link where your photo is located and add it to the challenge links.  We select two winners every month.  The project we like best receives our blog badge, and one random winner chosen by random number generator receives a gift certificate for $20 to our on line store.

Bloom-One
My card starts with a distress ink panel in Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron.  I topped the panel with the FUN FLORAL SIDEKICK frame cut from white card stock.  

Bloom-Two

The sentiment is from the Blooming Greetings stamp set, and is stamped on the window cut out.   I embellished the frame with die cut flowers and leaves that are included in the set.  I inked scraps of white paper with distress ink and used that instead of card stock.  The flowers have gem centers for a little bit of bling!

Bloom-Four

Now it's your turn!  I sure hope you'll play along!  We love to see what you make!   And YES!  Our blog blitz will be back in full swing tomorrow! We've got lots more projects to share featuring the new release!  

Have a great day!
