Neighborhood Home
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

All of here at Poppystamps would like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! So many of us travel during the holidays that I thought this brand new Neighborhood Home Pop-Up Easel Set would be the perfect die set to feature today. The beautiful and intricate details in all of these teeny tiny dies create a stunning home adorned in fresh fall  colors. Take a look!


I began with a crisp white base and cut the scored card base pieces and assembled the easel card. If you already love creating with Poppystamps Pop-Up Easel sets, you'll love the ease of this pretty neighborhood home.


I cut the back house panel in a very light gray, to show off the bright pops of colors in a vivid Autumn palette. The details you can create are amazing! You can cut tiny windows and frames, curtains, window boxes, and mix and match elements. I went with golden yellow curtains in all the square windows, and brown window boxes underneath. I originally planned on lille fall flowers in the window boxes, but I really loved the look of the pretty curtains and empty boxes, as if the boxes had already been put to bed for the summer.


Once all of the window panels, curtains, and window boxes were in place, I added the Soaring Tree Frame in brown along the side. I cut a handful of autumn leaves out of the Leafy Branch Oval. When the card is complete, the shape of the card allows it to stand freely, making a charming 3D fall home.


Thank you all so much for joining us today, as we are grateful for all of you in our Poppystamps family.








Fall Foxes
by Meghan Kennihan

Final (4)Hi Crafty Friends,
I love the Poppy Stamps Nordic Foxes. They don't have to just be used for Christmas and Winter cards. I'm showing you an autumn version using the Poinsettia Garland 6x6 Paper Pack pattern papers with gold accents.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you have foxes in the wild where you live?
A: Me? Yes, they come from the forest preserve near my house

Woodland Wonder Challenge Reminder
by Birgit Norton

Poppystamps Challenge5

Hello Poppystamps friends!  I'm here today to remind you about our current challenge, with the theme "Woodland Wonder".  I've paired the old with the new this month, to show you how Poppystamps dies coordinate so well together.  

Poppystamps Challenge8

I started by cutting the Nordic Foxes out of white and terra cotta colored cardstock.  I darkened some of the detailed terra cotta pieces by coloring them using Copic markers.  I assembled the fox and mounted it to the center of an A2 sized cream colored card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Fun below the fox.

I cut two of the Adriana Tall Curve Border pieces out of white cardstock and colored the leaves, stems and berries using Copic Markers.  I added white gel pen details to the berries and glued them to both side edges of the card, finishing my design.

Two For One Nordic Foxes

I have a pair of cards for you today featuring the darling Nordic Foxes. I pulled terra cotta, pink and gold cardstocks, created the foxes then decided where they should go! Lets break down each card.

This one is perched on the sill of the Arched Gothic Cathedral Window. The window was placed on foiled plaid paper with vellum added behind the bottom window openings. I wanted to soften the plaid here so the fox would stand out.

There are two layers to this window die and the detail is just beatuiful! I used ivory and dusty lilac cardstocks to create mine.

Golden sprigs and tiny flowers also adorn the window sill along with a greeting for a friend.

This sweet fox was added to a card base covered with the Nordic Floral Plate. I used ivory cardstock and left all of the pieces intact.

The die lets you use it as I did, interchange, mix and match pieces to add color or even remove pieces. A very versatile die for your collection!

I used a tag as a resting place for this fox. A tag you ask... why  yes, it's the negative from the Cathedral Window die used on the first card! 23  1006  005 copy

I used the vanilla one to hold the sentiment on this card! You get a window die and tag dies all rolled into one. That's a win win!! Oh, and the pretty little decorative tag on this sentiment if from the Basic Junk Jouranl set. A splash of flowers to finish it off and add to the prettiness!

Autumn's Warmest Wishes
by Birgit Norton


Good morning Poppy peeps!  Birgit here with you today with an autumn card filled with the warmest wishes, that you can make quickly and with few supplies.  Let's get started!


I began by cutting the pieces of the Nordic Squirrels out of a piece of cream colored card stock.


I colored the pieces using Copic Markers, in festive fall colors and glued them together using liquid glue.


For the background, I cut a piece of burnt orange card stock using the Nordic Floral Plate and glued it to an A2 sized, top folding card base.  This makes such a stunning and detailed background!


I also cut a circle using the Simple Rings die, out of white card stock and glued one of the squirrels and the two leafy sprigs to the circle.  


After gluing the circle to the front of the card, I then stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Banners stamp set and cut it with the coordinating die.  I attached the sentiment banner to the bottom of the circle, completing this card.  


I'll be back in a couple of weeks with  a little Christmas inspiration for you.

Hey there! I have a BOOtiful CAS card to share with you today that took just a few dies to create.

23  0824  001-1 copy

My jumping off point was the super cute Jack-O-Lantern Frame cut from rusty/orange glitter paper.

23  0824  004-1 copy

Doesn't he have the best smile! I tucked a couple of Twisted Houses cut from lime green paper behind him. This little panel was backed with golden yellow cardstock. 

23  0824  003-1 copy

The Marzipan Alphabet had just the right sized letters to create my 'BOO!' sentiment. After cutting them from purple glitter paper, I used the scraps to cut just a few leaves from the Jack-O-Lantern Frame. I also used a few more of my scrap pieces to add thin stripes behind the focal panel. This helped to give a cohesive color palette throughtout the card.

I hope you enjoyed this BOOtiful little Halloween card today! Thanks so much for stopping by, we love it when you do.
