Blooming Poinsettia Tag
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps Novmber Blog Post Poinsetta Die

Hi Friends, 

Candice here, sharing with you another Tag design using the Poppystamps Double Stitch Tag frame die.  I make a lot of handmade tags for my Christmas presents and the Blooming Poinsettia die and the tag frame die is perfect for decorating Christmas presents and gift bags for the upcoming holiday season.

To make this project, I used the Blooming Poinsettia die, the Silver Bells die and the largest Tag frame from the Double Stitched Tag Frame Die set.

Poinsetta dies for tag

This project is simple and easy to make. I used scraps kraft, red, green and gold cardstock from my stash to die cut the tag, poinsettia, leaves and bell. The pointsetta is made up of three die cut pieces that I layered on top of each other popping up the third and top layer of the poinsettia with foam tape.

I embellished the center of the poinsettia with some glitter gold Stickles for some added texture and shine to the project.

Stained Glass Snowflake Window.
By Pam Simpson

Hello Everyone, Pam here today..sharing a Christmas card, using this stunning Poppystamps. "Stained Glass Window Die" also in the collection the Stained Glass Snowflake and backer are the same size as the snowflake in this Window die.



I used just the two dies.


This is r the reverse of my die cut, I have used double sided tape to hold the waste in the shape. I could have used the backer snowflake!


I have adhered the panel to Memory Box grey/white spot paper from "Dashing Holiday" paper pad.


Trimmed paper so same size as  the panel, this I then adhered to red card to create a touch larger mat.


I cut the snowflake from glitter gold square, the waste will be saved for a later project.


Panel with glitter snowflake and glitter mat panel.


Card base 6.1/2"x 5.1/2".I have used an of cut strip of red card, as shown. adhered snowflake panel.


Cut apart the "Merry Christmas" removed the flourishes! best of both worlds this die.


I decorated the snowflake with pearls..Not as light as this in real life!  another quick Christmas card.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Whittle Merry Christmas
by Sue McRae


My card focuses on the cute Whittle dies that Poppystamps offers. I just love how charming all the images are in this series. 


I created a window card by die cutting an Art Deco Frame four times out of my card panel.


I wanted to do some inking behind each of the window so I lined the panel up on my card front and made pencil marks so I knew where all the windows would be to do my ink blending. Then I masked off each window section and used some aqua ink to create a gradient of colour.


To add a little more interest to each window I flicked on aqua ink in a shade darker than I used for the ink blending, some white acrylic paint and Perfect Pearls. I put a bit of all of these products on an acrylic block, added a bit of water to them, dipped my paint brush in and flicked away!


For each of the whittle dies I used paper from the new Memory Box Dashing Stripes and Dots pad and the Dashing Holiday pad. There's a lot of fun patterns in these pads that are good for Christmas and throughout the year.


I popped up all the die cuts and the window panel with foam squares and added the sentiment which was white heat embossed on black card stock.


Love how this turned out and it was quick and easy to make!


Thanks for visiting with me today!

Hello Christmas
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Christmas! Ho Ho Ho! Everybody's waiting for the man with the bag, so I just had to add him to this fun holiday shaker card! Isn't it jolly?


This holly jolly shaker was so much fun to make! I started out by cutting out the Holly Frame and Stencil in holiday green, and the Whittle Santa Face in red, white, and beige.


I traced and cut the background paper from this beautiful new cardstock from Memory Box, which features these tiny little holly and berry images! Adorable!


I lined up the shaker circle and used the Double Stitch Circle Frames to create the shaker card opening on my holly and berry background panel.


New this year from Memory Box are super sticky and wide washi tapes! I taped the snowflake washi over a piece of light grey cardstock, then cut a square to fit behind my shaker window.


Then I loaded up my shaker with a sparkly holiday sequin mix, using snowflakes, red, green, blue, and pink sequins. It really looks festive against the light grey and the snowflakes of the washi tape.


I added a little pink blush to Santa's cheeks with a cotton swab and my favorite ink, stacked up three mustaches, and topped off Santa's hat with a tiny white pom pon. Ho Ho Ho!


Adhere Santa to the front of your acetate window, add the Hello Outline and a few sequins and you are ready to say Hello Christmas!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Mouse warming
by Tina Wilstrup


Warning! These mischievous mice are turning this cozy relaxing by the fireplace into a mouse warming party!

I die cut all the pieces from white cardstock, except for the stockings that were cut from Memory Box patterned paper. The mice were colored with Copics and the rest were colored with Distress regular and oxide inks.

I marked out where I wanted the fireplace and inked up the background with oxide ink. I extended the color from the fireplace to most of the background.

I popped up the fireplace and as you can see the mice are hanggliding in the Christmas stockings.

To prevent the watchful corgis to chase them away, a couple of mice have tied their tails together.

I hope you like my inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today. Have a hapy crafty day!

So Very Thankful
by Dana Kirby


Hi Friends! It is Dana here today sharing a fun Fall card with you all that uses the Gorgeous Leafy Background die. I am in love with this die, and the possibilities are endless. Let's get started, shall we?

I started my card by die cutting the Leafy Background from white cardstock two times. On my first pass through my die cutting machine I applied as little pressure as possible to try and keep as many pieces (leaves) as I could to stay inside the die. I then added strips of scotch tape to the back of this first die cut to help hold all of the little pieces inside the die. I used my Copic markers to color all of the leaves in fall colors. I didn't worry about staying in the lines because I knew my edges would be covered, you also want to make sure you go over the edges a little so that there is not any white showing. Next, I ran the Leafy Background die through my die cutting machine a second time to get a clean cut. 


Next, I used a liquid glue to attach the white Leafy Background die cut over my colored leaves. I love how the leaves look like they are inlaid without having to do all of the work. By adding the tape behind my colored leaves I knew they were not going to fall out when I attached the two die cuts together. Once I had my square finished I cut it in half so I could use it on the top and bottom of my card design.


For my sentiment, I used the Autumn Leaves sentiment set. I stamped my sentiment and the little leaves with VersaMark ink and heat set gold embossing powder onto my cardstock. I then attached my Leafy Background to the top and bottom of my card panel. To finish my card I attached my card panel to a top folding A2 card base and tied some twine under my sentiment.


Thanks for joining me today. I hope I inspired you to try this fun and easy technique. 

Enjoy your day!
