Christmas Bells
by Nancy Penir


Hi Poppy Friends! Nancy here, and I have a card for you using a few of Poppy's new dies. A list of what I used is at the end of the post.


Beautiful dies are really a wow factor when composing a card. And really are very easy and quick.


After I die cut the bells, I colored them with Metallic paints. Leaving the centers of the bells unpainted is a way to give the images  round depth and perspective. 


A few sequins and a gold embossed sentiment and this card is done!

Hope your holiday cards are moving along. This time of year seems to sneak up and any tips for simplifying is helpful, don't you think? And die cuts really are a fabulous way to create beautiful cards!

Have a great crafty weekend!

Holiday Blog Blitz Begins!
by Jeanne Jachna

It's Jeanne here today and I'm bringing you tidings of great joy!  We're starting our Winter / Holiday blog blitz TODAY!  That means we're sharing projects made with the new products and hoping to inspire your holiday makes!!  We've got lots to show you and lots of prizes too!   You can see all the 2019 Holiday Release products in the store here!    

If you haven't checked out the Fall/Halloween blog blitz  you can still leave comments to enter to win through September 23 - winners will be announced on September 26).   


I made my holiday card look like a present!  I started with a solid double matted card stock background.  I topped the panel with two Grosgrain Ribbon craft dies to look like ribbon over the blue wrapping.

The Holiday Joy craft die comes with an outline word die as well as a shadow background die.   That means you can use the word with or without the background making it more versatile.  I love the little cut out leaves that adorn the ends!   I filled in their centers to add some extra color. 
The Delicate Poinsettia die set contains three die cuts.   I cut each layer from a different shades of red and stacked them with the lightest in the center.  I had some assorted size half pearls perfect for embellishing the flower center but some NUVO Drops would work great too! 

And now the part you've been waiting for.  The prize today is the Delicate Poinsettias craft die.

Peony Bouquet
by Nancy Penir


Hi! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you some inspiration using the new Peony Bouquet stamp set, and a few of the new dies just released.

DSC_0401 2_wm

If you love adding your favorite coloring medium to stamped images, this set is for you! I used copics, for this card, and below I explain my steps.


Stamped first in Memento Tuxedo Black, then colored with copics, I also stamped the bouquet's 2 outside blooms, and fussy cut them.


The die cut Double Scallop Oval frame seemed a perfect match for my colored bouquet. I added the outside of the Beautiful Butterflies Sidekick Frame before adding the foam tape. The detail of the pinpoint adds a finished edge to the composition.



The closeup shows how I added the 2 fussy cut buds through 2 of the scallops. 

Hope you have a wonderful week! And I hope it's full of crafty goodness!

Whittles Boy Card


Hi Poppy fans! Do you have any little ones in your life? Some 'littles' who love animals? 

Poppystamps released some adorable new animal whittles this month. Have you been enjoying all the inspiration by the design team? I hope so. And I hope you've commented on the sets you've been eyeing.

My card today is  a Whittle scene of some of my favorite jungle animals.


The new whittle dies cut the image out as well as imprint the fabulous personalities of each animal. LOVE!


I wanted a jungle scene with a warm glow, and decided to do a watercolor with my Kuretakes and water color paper. To that I splashed on some Mr. Huey white and  Adirondac Lettuce.


I love framing my scenes, but didn't want the whole Sidekick frame, so I simply snipped out what I didn't need or want, and left one little branch to balance the monkeys in the trees.


Sassy little monkeys think the lion doesn't notice them in the palm fronds. Think again, little monkeys!


Hope my card brought a smile, and maybe some inspiration too.

Don't forget, this is the last day to leave your comments on the blog blitz cards. Your chances to win increase with each comment. And each Blog Blitz post has a new die up for grabs! Hope you're in the winner's post on the 29th!

Happy crafty creating everyone!

Alcohol Inks
by Marybeth Lopez



Hi there, friends of Poppystamps Marybeth here again with one of my favorite dies from Poppystamps : Garden Poppy Stitched Frame. This time I used it with one of the many alcohol ink papers I made a while ago . I made so many and wasn't sure if I like them but so happy I kept them all. As you can see below with this frame die I can be selective of what part of the paper I want to use.

I sort of see the gold as grass in the wind , red as hills of poppies, and sky blue. I layered the center frame two times then added to the center .The back of the panel has fun foam to rise it off the blue base .



I've posted in the past a link to see how this is done , but you have many ways and choices of seeing videos on how to use alcohol inks.


I like how this one die, can look so different just by changing a few things. I used watercolor paper called Masters Touch ( any will do) for the white panel. 

Take care and thanks for the visit.

Cupcake Birthday Card with Video Tutorial
by Nadine Carlier

Cupcake Birthday Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with an easy to make cupcake birthday card. 

Cupcake Birthday Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I used the Poppystamps Whittle Cupcake die for the cupcakes and for the trim I used the Eyelet Stitches die. I used some markers to add draw over the cuts in the diecut and added some glitter to the frosting.

For the sentiment, I used the Doodle Happy Birthday die and cut it out of kraft cardstock.

Best Wishes
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome to a summery post featuring one of my favorite dies from Poppystamps, Sylvan Frame. I was in need of a quick card for a couple celebrating an engagement, and fortunately came across this watercolor panel in my stash. The frame, die cut from white cardstock, and green, was the perfect standout against the watery blues and greens.


I actually cut the green card stock 3 times to cast a green shadow, and give the frame some depth. A sprinkling of a few 'blings' and done!


Hope your summer is going 'swimming-ly' and your getting some good crafty-time in too!
