Festive Noel Christmas Blog Blitz
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.56926563398E12

Hello Poppy fans! The Christmas/Winter Blog Blitz is in full swing and I'm here to show you some inspiration using the gorgeous Festive Noel die.
Watermark1.56926563398E12

I wanted to use "sort-of" untraditional colors so I started by loosely ink blending a panel of watercolor cardstock with Mermaid lagoon, Blueprint sketch and Wilted violet Distress inks. Ireally wasn't careful with the blending. I spritzed the cardstock with water and dapped off the excess with a paper towel. Then I diluted a tiny drop of silver acrylic paint with water and splattered it over the panel. I even spritzed it with Sheer shimmer spritz for extra sparkle because - Christmas...

I also die cut the Festive Noel 4 times and the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick frame once. With my scissors I cut out all the pumpkins from the frame.
Watermark1.56926563398E12

The frame and the one Noel cuts I covered in silver sparkle embossing powder. I then layered the Noel cuts and adhered the frame and Noel to the card. I inlayed a single layer of the Noel negative cuts to make the word stand out more.
Watermark1.56926563398E12

I inlayed all 4 layers of the berries and topped them with white Nuvo drops and also added a little shimmer to the inlayed letters.

And now for the part you've been waiting for! You could win this gorgeus and versatile Festive Noel die!

Blog Blitz Window Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello! Nadine here with a window Christmas card I created for the Poppystamps Winter/Holiday Blog Blitz.  I used several of the new 2019 Holiday release dies on my card.  Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to see how you can WIN the Cottage Window die that I used on my card.

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier 1

To create the background, I ran a brown ink over a woodgrain embossing folder and then embossed a tan piece of cardstock. Then I die cut out the Cottage Window in brown cardstock, added some foam tape to the back of the window frame and attached a piece of white cardstock and then more foam tape to the back and adhered it to the front of my card. The shutters of the window I added some foam tape and slide them behind the frame of the window. 

I die cut out the dove from the Dove and Olive Branch and two of Holiday Mistletoes from white cardstock. Then colored the mistletoes with some Copic markers and airbrushed some light grey Copic onto the dove. The olive branch from the Dove and Olive Branch, I cut several times using green cardstock.  The Christmas Tree in the window, I cut out using the Whittle Trees die that is from the 2018 Holiday release.

Hi there, Marybeth here today. You still have time to play in the : Anything Goes Challenge for  a chance to win a prize!

 I have a card using the new Holiday dies and stamps !  For this card I took the: Poppystamps , Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup and used it to hold the watercolored Maple Trio Dies .

 

Fullsizeoutput_2cda

I cut out lots of leaves then used my water-pen and Peerless Watercolor sheets to color all my leaves and cup.

Fullsizeoutput_2cdd

I made two cups one was watercolored (on the upper right) and the other ink blended (left) : I ended up using the watercolored cup and saved the other for another time.

Fullsizeoutput_2cdc

I adhered the leaves with score tape and when I wanted a little lift I just bunched up the tape and that was enough for random pops of leaves. Some leaves are adhered flat. I ended up adding another layer of the cup to the back side for more stability,I also added shimmer with a shimmer pen to the cup.

Fullsizeoutput_2cd7

I layered the watercolor cardstock on the card base and stamped the sentiment using : Pumpkin Patch clear stamp set from Poppystamps .

I hope you have a wonderful day! God bless.

Holiday/ Winter Blog Blitz - Christmas Tag
by Candice Crawford

9.24

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are enjoying your day and our wonderful blog blitz! Today's project  is a quick and easy tag showcasing items from our September release. For those of you who like to get a jump start on Christmas, this clean and simple tag can easily be massed produced for your Holiday gift packaging.

88283090-D8DA-4202-94AE-82182A4B6308

To get started, you will need the second to largest tag frame from the Double Stitch Tag Frames along with our new Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup and Magical Cauldron dies.

First I die cut the Tag and frame from a piece of Kraft card stock using my Gemni Junior die cutting machine. With the tag die cut, I placed the cauldron die in the center of the cards stock ensuring the steam was placed near the top of the tag. I then die cut cauldron from the tag.  

27305C0E-B5C7-469D-8228-F91F1969CD40

Next I  took the Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup die and cut the cup twice; once from a white piece of card stock and then again from a chocolate piece of card stock. With some scissors I cut the warm wishes sentiment from each of the cups.  With my distress ink blending tool, I color the white cup die cut with some candied apple distress oxide ink and colored the white warm wishes sentiment with mowed lawn distress oxide ink. 

95605AA9-2C31-48EE-81EB-875C7BE179D6

Next I adhered the green colored sentiment onto my candied colored cup with some 3M foam tape. I then outlined the  sentiment with my black micron pen to make the sentiment pop. To assemble the tag, I placed the tag frame and tag onto a piece of white card stock with some liquid glue and trimmed the edges with my scissors. 

IMG_0514

I then adhered the cup onto the tag right over the die cut caldron with some 3M foam tape. Don't you just love how the  cup looks as though it has steam coming from it. Next I took the brown warm wishes die cut and placed that onto of the tag just above the cup with some foam tape. To embellish the cup with the appearance of whip cream, I took my Marvy snow marker and brushed some white ink over the sentiment.  Then I heated the ink with my heat gun to make it puff up like whip cream.   

IMG_0513

For the finishing touches on the tag, I whole punched a circle at the top of the tag and added some lime green ribbon and christmas theme twine from my stash. I really liked how this tag turned out and how quickly it all came together. 

Thanks for joining me today for this quick and easy Christmas tag. I hope you were inspired to create one or two for yourself.

Blog Blitz: Christmas/Holiday
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0063

Hi there Poppy fans! The Blog Blitz continues with Christmas/Holiday dies. I'd like to present Mistletoe Side Strips and Stencil.

DSC_0043_wm

Noel says it all on the front of a card, doesn't it? And the drama of shimmer black Cardstock and metallic watercolors dress up a card front fit for the holidays! The beauty of Poppy's Side strip die lets you put the mistletoe anywhere your creative juices take you.

DSC_0003

Some time back I purchased a set of Metallic watercolors by Prima. They're a mixture of color and mica and shine when added to any color cardstock.

Mine is black. You can see how vibrant the leaves get when color is applied. And this die imprints the leaves' veins when cut. 

DSC_0005

I added spots of the blue to my leaves, and when dry, the veins of the embossed leaves pop! My sentiment, Festive Noel die was cut from shimmer cardstock too. First, in  black, and watercolored with copper metallic. Then cut with yellow/gold, and finally in red shimmer. This photo show how I added double sided tape to the back of my diecut before inserting the letters and berries.

DSC_0037

Here's a closeup of the die cuts painted, and Nuvo Crystal Drops added. The background insert is loosely watercolored with gold and lavender metallic paint, and I did pop up both sides of the black cardstock with foam.

I masked my letters before splattering white metallic paint. The whole card really shimmers irl!

Shiny Noel
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6269

Happy Holidays! Our amazing double holiday blog blitz is sparkling along, and today, I am sharing a beautiful, easy breezy card with a traditional holiday feel. Our Holiday Blog Blitz began September 19, and just like our Fall/Halloween Blog Blitz, we are offering amazing blog candy and giveaways every day! All you need to do is leave a comment and you could win the die or stamp set featured that day! That's MY idea of a Holiday treat!

IMG_6275

I love all the colors of the winter holidays, but this Festive Noel die has a traditional holiday vibe for me, so I decided to use traditional holiday colors, red and green foil paper! I cut the Festive Noel twice, once in red and once in silver. I then cut the Holly Vine Sidekick Frame out of green foil, then carefully pieced everything together against a light silvery white glitter background. I must have tried a dozen different background papers until I found the one that was just right for this project. This color combination works for me, and all that shiny foil reminds me of vintage holiday ornaments and decorations. The Festive Noel fits perfectly in the frame of the Holly Vine.

Now it's your chance to win this amazing Festive Noel die to add to your holiday collection. Simply leave a comment on THIS post before midnight on October 2, and you might be selected to receive a special gift from your Poppystamps Secret Santa! Winners will be announced October 4th.
