Both Michele and I LOVE Halloween, so it was my pleasure to invite her to partner up for this spooky challenge!

Partner with Poppystamps Thank Boo very much

For her Thank BOO card, Michele used Twisted Tree Oval, Surprise Skeleton, Boo Outline, and Simple Thank You! I love the deep blue and the bright yellow - -a surprising and trendy Halloween color combination!

I also used deep blue and jewel tone yellows, oranges, and greens to create the background panel for my own card. I squirted a few drops of alcohol ink and blew them all around using my brand new giant squishy rubber ball air blower. FUN! I could make these colorful YUPO paper cards all day long! I used images from Whittle Ghosts, Snowman and Trees from our newest release, and Boo Outline. A few Fairy Jewels in shades of green, navy and turquoise ad that magical sparkle at the end!

Now it's your turn to enter the Poppystamps challenge! We'd love to see what you'll create! Thank you so much to one of my creative muses, Michele Ferguson, from I Card Everyone!

Spooky Barn
by Nancy Penir

Hello! And welcome! It's Halloween time. Can you believe it? I'm featuring Poppy's Barn Die Set with a spooky theme, something I love to do with die sets, stretch their use with the seasons and holidays. Scroll down for pictures, fair warning, there's lots to see!

DSC_0052_wm

The base of the barn was cut with dark blue cardstock, from Memory Box's fabulous cardstock collection. The rest are bright Halloween colors, also from the MB Collections.

The following photos are closeups of the areas with spooky characters. The web was white embossed onto vellum and fussy cut.

I love to back my images with another die cut, for a shadow or a glow.

The handmade A2 sized envelope is stamped and stenciled onto butcher paper.

Inside there's a Halloween greeting, and you can see the area where the barn Pop Up rests.

Seasons Change
by Janet Katz

Fallcard1name

Happy fall, everyone! Cooler weather is just beginning to creep into central Texas and I’m here for it. For my first project as a new design team member, I wanted to design a slimline card, which typically measures 3.5” x 8.5” when folded. I started with the lovely Soaring Tree Frame cut from kraft cardstock. 

I used gold, burgundy, and rust cardstock with the Floral Cluster die, cutting off the tiny leaves on the edges and adhering them to the tree. Next, I die cut the adorable Pile of Pumpkins (I adore pumpkins!) from some deep orange cardstock.

IMG_2093
I knew I wanted a snowy background and the Snowspeckle Washi Tape worked perfectly. I’d never worked with washi tape this wide, and found it easiest to adhere the leading edge of the tape to my plastic table top and then unroll it. This way I could measure what I wanted and get a smooth application by just putting my cardstock onto the sticky side.

I used a medium blue cardstock and cut the washi-covered piece down to just fit behind the tree. I used the same blue for the card base. I used a plain circle die to create the green hill, and then I swiped Versamark ink on the tops of pumpkins, the hill, and in one area of the tree. I heat embossed with white embossing powder to give it the look of snow. I went over a few more branches with a white gel pen. 

Fallcard2

I adhered all these pieces together along with the washi-covered background, and then used my same fall-colored cardstock to die cut Orchard Leaves. I cut apart these to make a nice variety of leaves for the card front. I used foam adhesive tape to pop up the snowy scene and added a computer printed sentiment. I hope you enjoyed this card, and I hope the beauty and cooler temperatures of fall are waiting just outside your front door.

Best Wishes

Hey crafty friends! Tiffany here with some more fun, fall inspiration for you. I made this simple, colorful card using only a few Poppystamps products. I started my card by stamping and gold heat embossing the main image from Diamond Sentiments stamp set on watercolor paper. I watercolored the image with some watercolor brush markers in my stash in an array of autumnal colors.

20210915_155745

While my watercolored image was drying, I worked on the die cuts. I wanted to make the leaves and foliage look more lush, so I decided to use the Leafy Garden Border die. I ink blended several panels of cardstock with a variety of distress oxide inks and die cut the panels multiple times with the border die. I added splatters of leftover watercolor on the leaves for some subtle detail. Once dry, I trimmed each die cut in half and arranged it behind the focal image. After I arranged the leaves, I used Press'n Seal to pick everything up, add glue and adhered it to a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack.

Inside the diamond, I stamped one of the sentiments in the Diamond Sentiment stamp set in Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink. To bring in some more gold, I gold heat embossed the edges of a piece of white cardstock. I simply pressed my sticky embossing ink directly to the paper and ran it along the four sides. It was not perfect and that was ok because I wanted a distressed look to match the card. I adhered everything to an A2-sized card base, added a few fairy jewels, and that's it! Hope you enjoyed the card and found some inspiration!

Fall Thanks
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028

Greetings friends! Nancy here, and I have a thank you slim line card today, just perfect for the season!

DSC_0019

Blended some Distress Oxides in warm fall tones, then spritzed them with water, and white paint. My slim panel is 3 1/2 x 8 1/2.

This was the perfect width to fit the Maple Symphony die, cut twice vertically. 

DSC_0017

The dark lining adds drama to shadow my leaves.

DSC_0022 2_wm

The leaves were color reversed before gluing them down, a little off to allow the dark to show behind the leaves.

DSC_0027

I love double cutting my sentiments before adding to the card. A bit more work but worth it!

DSC_0022 2_wm

The finished card looks more dimensional, but is actually flat... very easy to mail!

I added a bit of Nuvo Glimmer Paste brushed onto each leaf.

Just a very light application for a little wow.

Hope I was able to bring some fall inspiration your way today. Happy crafting!

Fall Hugs
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello , Marybeth Lopez  here today with a fall-ish hug card, using Poppystamps dies, and memory box papers.

8E8BAC71-C7E8-4E67-B824-317CE57FEB43_1_201_a

As you will see ,  pictured below I couldn't make up my mind on what colors I wanted to use.  I changed them as I went along and even glued on top of a color I did want. The different layers give lots of dimension in person.

EE5EAD65-B262-4C6E-897D-62A2C73BAB64_1_201_a

I ended up not using any of the yellow or orange. I glued everything on my watercolor cardstock .

The leaves are from , Maple Symphony and the hug is called Luscious Script Hugs.

I used the plaid with gold,  patterned paper again called Madras Plaid Coral and Green all listed and linked below.

I placed the card on top of this mug / rug/ coaster that I made because the colors went well together.

I used the word ( Hugs) because this will post the day before  911  anniversary 20 years ago. I felt many might need a paper hug.

God bless and keep you all. Hope you get some crafty time in this weekend.
