Hey there crafty friends, Candice here back on the blog with another holiday card for you. The countdown to Chirstmas continues. If you are in need of a quick holidy card, today's card share is perfect for you. This card is using the new Ornament Background die. I simply cut the die from White cardstock, Gold mirroed cardstock and Red glitter paper to create the awesome card. 

Poppystamps 12.17.21.2

Start by cutting the background from white cardstock. Remove all of the frame elements then adhere just the white frame onto an A2 size card base. 

Then cut the background again from Gold cardstock and Red Glitter paper. Save only the foliage elements and the ornament tops from the GoldCardstock piece. Save only the inner ornament pieces form the Red Glitter Cardstock.  Next, paper piece the elements of the ornament and foliage onto the white frame that you adhered to your A2 card base useing liquid adhesive.

Finally, using the new Gilded Christmas wishes stamp set and coordinating die,  stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment in Black ink onto a scrap piece of white cardstock. Die cut the sentiment using the coordinating die from the set. Then popped up the image onto my paper pieced background with some 3M foam tape.

This card came together very easily and the results are stunning. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and quick tutorial. I hope you also found inspiration to create your own Ornanment Background card. Until next time....Happy Crafting.

Hello Crafty Friends! Hope you are all having a great week. Christmas is just about a week away  for those who celebrate are you excited. I can't wait to visit with family and enjoy the holiday.  I am on the blog today sharing a stunning easel card using the new Cabin Snow Globe Pop-Up Easel die set.  This by far is my favorite easel set from Poppystamps. 

Poppystamps 12.16.21.3

This set is so easy to use and the elements to make the beautiful cabin snow scene are stunning. I used my Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Chipped Shapphire to create my night winter background layer. Then used a white gel pen to create the falling snow. The snow bank for the cabin and roof were made using white glitter cardstock from Memory Box. 

Poppystamps 12.16.21.2

I used several cardstock scraps from my stash in various colors to create the trees, cabin and holy. I used red and white cardstock to create the Easel card base. 

For the sentiment on the card I used the Christmas Quotes stamp with coordinating die set. There so many great holiday sentiments in this stamp set and they all go perfectly with the snowglobe. 

Poppystamps 12.16.21.1

I really enjoyed palying with this new die set. I hope you have enjoyed this card share and found isnpiration to create a Cabin Snowglobe Pop-Up easel card for yourself. Until next time...Happy Crafting.

Today's card is using the new Brilliant Star Oval die. Along with the new Woodsy Plaid 6x6 Patterned Paper Pad and the Christmas Quotes Stamp set from last year. 

Poppystamps 11.26.21.4

Creating this card is very simple. Begin by die cutting the Star Oval image from gold cardstock and white glitter cardstock. Save the inner pieces from the die cut from the white glitter cardstock as you will use these again. Discard the inner pieces of the die cut from the gold cardstock. I also die cut a small oval piece from white cardstock. 

Poppystamps 11.26.21.3

Next adhere the Gold Star Oval frame to the white oval cardstock with liquid adhesive. Then paper piece the white glitter Brilliant Star Oval pieces into the Gold frame also with some liquid adhesive. Lastly stamp the sentiment Peace on Earth from the Christmas Quotes stamps set in Versamark ink onto s scrap piece of white cardstock then heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Die cut the sentiment using the coordinating dies from the stamp set and pop the sentiment up onto the card with some foam tape. 

Simple, easy and elegant christmas card that can be easily mass produced. There are 24 sheets of paper in the Woodsy Plaid 6x6 paper pad, therefore you can easily make 24 Christmas cards. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time.... Happy Craftying!

Poppystamps Thanks Giving Post 1

Well Hello there Crafty friends, and to all the viewers in the United States, "Happy Thanksgiving."  The winter season is now among us here in Michigan and what better way to bring on the the season than a festive winter themed card. The Bird House Pop-Up Easel set paird with the new Wintertime Sentiments stamps make a great combo. 

Poppystamps 11.26.21.2

For the card base I am using a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of plaid pattern paper from the new Woodsy Plaid 6x6 Paper Pad from Memory Box that I adhered to a white cardbase. This patterned paper goes well with any woodsy themed project and is perfect for masculine themed cards.

Although this die set is meant to make pop-up easel cards the focal image of the birdhouse and bird are great die cut imges for regular A2 size or A7 size cards. The birdhouse was die cut from the new woodgrain cardstock from Memory Box and the snow and accents, cardinal, greenery and bird house accents were all die cut from colored cardstock scraps from my stash. 

Poppystamps Thanks Giving Post 3

This die set is a must have for your collection as it can be used for various seasons, and perfect for masculine card desings. The sentiment was stamped in Versa Fine Onxy Black ink. While the birdhouse was sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink to provide more dimension and depth to the the focal image of the card.  The whole image was popped up on 3M foam tape.

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here back on the blog with another Copic coloring card using the Memory Box All the Happiness Stamp and die set. This large 6x9 stamp set comes with two gorgeous floral blooms that are perfect for coloring. Each stamp has a coordinating die for you to cut out the flowers. 

Today I am using the larger floral from the stamp set to make another mini slimline card. I absolutely love Black and White. These are my two my favorite colors of the rainbow. Yes I know, Black is the absence of color and white is technically not a color, but I am a sucker for black and white anything. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.3

To make this card, I began by stamping the floral image with my Gina K Almagam ink. This ink is black and bold and perfect for using with Copic Markers. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.4

I colored the red petals of the flowers with R37,R35 and R32. I always start with the darkest marker first then move to my medium shade (i.e. R35) then finally blending everything with the lightest shade (i.e. R32). The leaves are colored with G29, G28, and G07 for the darker petals and the two lighter leaves are colored with YG06 and YG00. The centers of the flowers are colored with Y15 and Y13. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.2

Coloring to me is very therapeutic. I will admit most of my cardmaking features heavily die cut cards, but at times, I do like to pull out my Copic markers to make a very colorful card. The background of the card was made with 1 inch black and white strips of cardstock that I adhered to my slim line card base with liquid adhesive. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.5

I die cut the floral image with the coordinating die from the set and adhered it to the card with liquid adhesive. The sentiment comes from the Memory Box Joyful Moments stamp set that was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I embellished the card with my new favorite metallic pearls.

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and have found inspiration. Until next time crafty friends....Happy Crafting!
