Leafy Snowflake Frame.
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 12.30 copy

Hi there Crafty Friends, 

Candice here from Papercrafting Elegance, back to share another holiday card.           Today's card although is holiday themed, has a lot of versatility and can also be used as a winter themed birthday or thank you card, by simply changing the sentiment and patterned paper.

Blog Post

The products I used for my project are the Leafy Snowflake Frame and the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die sets. This card came together quickly and was a breeze to make. Clean and simple is one of my favorite styles to use when mass producing holiday cards. 

To create this card, I first cut the Leafy Snowflake die twice from a piece of white cardstock and then again from a piece of red cardstock.  I snipped both sets of snowflakes from their frames, then separated the snowflakes into outlines and inlaid pieces.  

Next I inlaid the white snowflake piece into the red snowflake outline to create a red and white inlaid snowflake. These red and white snowflake pieces are held together with scotch tape on the reverse side.

Next I took a piece of 6x6 pattern paper from the Dashing Holiday Paper Pad by Memory Box and cut it to 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 for the background on my card. I then die cut the largest frame from the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die set from a piece of red cardstock and added the fame to the patterned paper with some liquid glue.

I then adhered the inlaid snowflake to the card using some 3M foam tape. Lastly I added some silver rhinestones to each of the six points on the snowflake points and one rhinestone to the center for a bit of shimmer and shine.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment "warmest wishes" from the Flower Garden stamp set in Versamark onyx black ink onto a 1/2 inch strip of white cardstock and adhered the sentiment just below the snowflake with foam tape. I think this card is absolutely stunning.

I hope you all enjoyed today's project and found a bit of inspiration. Thank you all for joining me today. I wish you all a Happy New Year! and look forward to sharing more projects with you in 2020.

Poinsettia Card.
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 12.23

Hi there crafty friends!

With just two short days till Christmas I wanted to share with all of you a last minute holiday card I made using the Blooming Poinsettia Die set and Merry Christmas Flourish.

December Blog Post 1.4

These two dies are a match made in heaven. They coordinate so well together and create such a beautiful focal image for my card. To expand the length of the flourish for my card, I simply cut the off the sentiment and use the two remaining flourish pieces as the background to my card.  

I placed one piece of the flourish above the poinsettias and the second piece below to create the illusion that the flourish is one continuous die cut. There is so much versatility with the Merry Christmas flourish which allows this die to be used all year round. 

December Blog Post 1.3

I fell so much in love with the Blooming Poinsettia die set that once I made my cute gift tags last month, I had to create a coordinated holiday card.

What I love most about this die are the beautiful details on the petals and leaves. This die cuts out such cute line details that the Poinsettias just jumps right out at you. I also like that the die is large enough to create a focal point on a tag using the Poppystamps Double Stitched Tag Frames. But the best part about this die is that is also small enough to cluster together onto the front of a card.

Here is a recap photo of the Poinsettia gift tag I created last month. 

Poinsettia 1 tag

If you like matching cards and gift tags, then I hope today's project inspires you to create some handmade cuties just like these. Both the card and the gift tag come together quickly, and are very easy to make. You can easily mass produce this card and gift tag to accompany your holiday gifts. To complete today's card, I used the warmest wishes sentiment from the Flower Garden stamp set and added some glitter gold stickles to the center of my poinsettia's.

Sending Christmas Cheer
by Nancy Penir


Hi there and welcome to Poppystamps! My card for you features a new favorite Poppystamps die, Cottage Window. A timeless die set, it can be used any time of year. Thought I'd share a card I made into a Christmas window, already mailed and into it's new home. Now, I love to creat scenes. I get an idea and look for a way to bring that idea to life!


Cottage Window has 4 main elements. I gave it a shadow by backing it with a darker card stock.

Through the window you can see the home's Christmas tree. Here's how I made the tree.


These trees are too small for what I was going for, so I simply created a larger image from all the small trees.


Here they are die cut from 2 green card stocks, one light green the other dark, and detached from the die cut base.


Once assembled, I added Nuvo drops to simulate ornaments. (I also added a bit of glitter too.)


Outside, is another grouping of florals, this time from the bottom of the Festive Noel die.


Once you have an idea for a card front, look through your dies and use what you need from them to create your  own design and scene.

Above all, have fun!

Merriest of Christmases and Have a wonderfully creative New Year! Cheers!

Quick Tag
by Sue McRae


Hello crafters, Sue here with a quick and simple tag for your last minute holiday preparations. At this point of the month I'm done making Christmas cards and am focused on making tags to add to all my Christmas gifts and I want the tags to be quick and easy to make because it is a busy time of the year! 


I started off my choosing a patterned paper from the Memory Box Dashing Holiday Paper Pad, my coloured card stock and glitter paper. No inking today to make the tag building go quicker. Choosing patterned paper adds visual interest and glitter paper adds texture. A time saver.


To create a glow behind the windows of the townhouse I placed the die cut house on some scrap yellow card stock, traced around it and cut along the inside of the lines. I swiped a shimmer pen across the paper to add sparkle and adhered it to the back of the townhouse.


After assembling my tag I stamped the sentiment with black ink and die cut the word Joy.


To make the tag extra festive I added a couple of bells along with ribbon and twine.


I hope this inspires you to make your own Christmas tags, they add an extra special touch to the gifts you give friends and loved ones.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone and see you in January!

O Holy Night
by Tina Wilstrup


Hi Poppy fans! It's now 5 days till Christmas and I have a card for you that shows the calm of that holy night.

I die cut and Copic colored the Whittle sleepy fox and the village houses. I picked out the windows from the houses and colored them individually so the houses look like they're filled with light and trees.

I forgot to take a picture of the background (sorry) but before assembling I inkblended the backgrond with oxide inks and splattered it with silver acrylic paint. I hand cut 2 panels for snowy hills and inked the top of them. The top layer is popped up. I then popped up the houses and fox and shaded under them with Copic markers. Notice the fox' pawprints. He loves the silence and the squeeking snow.

My plan was to use the O holy noght flourish as smoke from one of the chimneys, and so I wanted to heat emboss it. In order not to break the intricate cut I layered 5 cuts. I then heat embossed 3 layers of WOW! white twinkle embossing powder. It's white with silver glitter and perfect for the smoke.

This is my last post this year, so I thank you for all your sweet comments and I hope your Christmas is as calm and cozy as this scene.  I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Leafy Snowflake Frame
by Dana Kirby


Hi Poppy Friends! I hope you all are doing well and finding time to be creative. I am stopping by today to share a set of cards that uses the Leafy Snowflake Frame. This is such a Gorgeous die!

I began my cards by die cutting the Snowflake Frame from white cardstock, soft blue cardstock, and silver glitter cardstock. Three quick passes through my die cutting machine and I had all the pieces cut to make three cards! 


Next, I created my card bases. I cut my paper down to 3.75 inches by 7.5 inches and scored it in the middle (3.75 inches). I then attached my frames to my card bases and inlaid the snowflake and background die cut pieces directly onto my card base.


I kept my cards small, I think they will be perfect to tie onto a gift or to use as a little hostess gift. You can follow my same technique and create a traditional sized card too. The size of this die lends itself to lots of possibilities! 



Thanks for joining me today! I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! I will be back in January to share a Valentine project with you all.
