Hi friends! Poppystamps has some new sets in the store, and thought I'd show you 2 of my favorites. They're a couple of hedge hogs, done whittle style, and they die cut right and left. Just perfect for Valentines, or weddings and or anniversaries when posed kissing! Let's take a look!

I just loved setting my scene on Memory Box's Sunset Blush Washi Tape. So much so, I did a trio of sending hugs cards using the floral Washi.

On the front card I posed the kissing Hedge Hogs over Poppystamps' Wavy Heart.

I die cut the heart in several shades of pink and red, and assembled my heart like a puzzle.

On the third card I used the washi covered card stock to die cut the heart, and kept the washi with waves in the design. There's so much you can do with large washi rolls. I played with colored cardstock for fun, and loved them all!

For the first card I used grey cardstock

I also fussy cut a few of the floral designs and popped them up with foam at the top.

I also popped up my hedge hogs with foam.

I hope you check out the store for some fun new dies. They're sure to become favorites for Valentines or any card you make. 

Happy New Year, and happy crafting!

Challenge Reminder: Colors Of Autumn
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Autumn Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a reminder to enter the PSC#74 Colors Of Autumn!  The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is crafty using colors of Autumn... reds, yellows, oranges, and everything in between.  Not feeling like a color challenge?  That's ok.. how about some fall foliage, pumpkins, apples, gourds, and cornstalks?  Maybe some whittle fall critters?  Gobble gobble!!!  Just like the bounty of the harvest, there are lots of possibilities! Link up your projects... cards, tags, home decor, and more!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!

To help give you some inspiration, I created my card using the Maple Leaf Side Strips and Stencil. I die cut it out of white cardstock and then used the stencil to color in the leaves using some fall ink colors and a blending brush. Then adhered the white panel to the front of an off white card base.

For the sentiment, I used the Luscious Script Hello and cut it out using some orange foiled paper.

Zig Zag Spellcaster Witch
By Jeanne Jachna

Zig-Zag-Witch-One

It's finally here!  It's HALLOWEEN!  I hope you have some spooky fun planned even if you're not allowed to trick or treat!  I've got a little eye candy for you today with this Halloween color block card.

Zig-Zag-Witch-Six

I think details make your card creations come to life and this one is sure to catch your eye with the blingy steam coming from the cauldron and the silver bow on the witch's waist.

Zig-Zag-Witch-Three

This card starts with the Zig Zag Border background.  It was easy to assemble.  Just cut strips of colorful card stock, tape them together nice and tight on their revers side and then trim the edges so the panel fits your card base.  Easy peasy! 

Zig-Zag-Witch-Five

I topped the panel with a Pointed Oval Frame cut from black card stock.  It contains the scene and keeps the figure grounded so it doesn't look like it's floating. 

Zig-Zag-Witch
I wanted to add some details to the witch.  The die has some cut lines on her skirt.  I cut the witch twice... once in black and once in grey.  I cut the skirt to remove the cut panels and adhered them with adhesive foam tape to add dimension.  To hide the edges that looked a little rough I added a bitty bow.

Zig-Zag-Witch-Two

The "Happy Halloween" sentiment is from the Halloween Ingredients stamp set.  The coordinating die set includes the little tag shape.

Zig-Zag-Witch-Four

Wishing you a fun Halloween!  Don't eat too much candy!  :P

Can you believe it's the end of October? And that means it's time for one of of our favorite holidays... Halloween!

DSC_0069_wm

How about a couple of too cute cards with some of Poppy's new dies! Hope you added some of these to your stash.

Have you seen the new Whittle Monsters? Too cute to spook!

DSC_0066_wm

A very simple card, rather graphic in style using the monsters with new 'Boo' die.

DSC_0068

So easily die cut with the new glitter cardstock. I cut the bottom boo with green glitter card stock and the top with purple. But what to do with the reverse colors? Create another card of course!

DSC_0061_wm

Love the curly spider web. It's part of Poppy's Clear Stamp set,  Halloween Ingredients.

The pumpkins are cut from Rinea foil paper. These 2 are going to a couple of grandsons, together with some candy treats.

You all have a Happy, safe Halloween. Take care my friends!

Hi and welcome to a post featuring the new paper packs from Memory Box together with Poppy's new holiday dies.

DSC_0151

Have you visited the shop lately? So many new stamps & dies, and one of them, Christmas Quotes, comes with 4 matching dies. The die shapes fit well with one of the papers included in Dashing Holiday Paper Pack, that can be used for sentiments.

DSC_0010_wm

I've combined one of the packs' plaids with Shimmering cardstock, and a die cut of Stained Glass Snowflake, also cut from some glitter cardstock. 

DSC_0013

All the glittery accents add such a festive feel to holiday cards!

Hope you're inspired to take a look around the shops, both Poppystamps and Memory Box. So many fun new products to make your crafting shine for the holidays!

Stained Glass Angel
Candice Crawford

IMG_2403

Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing on the blog another holiday card from the new release.  This card is using the new Stained Glass Angel die.  To start, you will first need to create your background layer. Sponge on Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink onto a 3.5 inch x 4.5 inch piece of white cardstock.

D828C072-EFEF-44C7-A130-22B55BAD8BEC-C28E9B81-BA6C-47BA-AFB0-F36C6D5058A0

Add some water splatters then dry off the splatters with a piece of paper towel. Next add some white paint splatters using a whait craft paint, water and a paint brush. 

A9883782-8955-463B-965B-78D0BF25BD06-29A3E340-00EC-4427-B0F1-0D0F93180624

Now die cut the stained glass angel image from the die 3 times using white, silver and gold card stock. From the white card stock piece, you will only need the angel pieces from the die. From the gold card stock, you will only need to save the halo. You will use the entire frame outline of the image from the silver card stock. 

6BB411B3-A20A-423A-BC37-F71545485DDF-B86D7997-61C2-4A29-A073-99B8F5FFE8FD

Next die cut a 4.25 x 5.5. inch silver stitched border frame using the Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die from Memory Box. 

To assemble your card, first add the silver trimmings border to a white card base using liquid adhesive. Next adhere your stained glass angle frame to your distress inked background with your choice of adhesive. I find spray adhesive works well on intricate frame pieces such as this one.

Now paper piece your angel together using the die cut white and gold angle and halo pieces. Next adhere your focal image to the center of your card using some 3M foam tape. Finally stamp your sentiment from the new Christmas quotes sentiment set and pop that sentiment onto the card with foam tape.

I hope you all have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!
