Hey there crafty friends,  Candice here with a Halloween card using several dies from the the latest Poppystamps release.              To create the cute halloween scene, I began with die cutting a cloud stencil border from some white cardstock and using the whittle cloud border die cut to sponge the cloud image onto my card front using Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink.

Next I die cut the spooky tree image and the grass border from some black cardstock. I sniped the circle frame from the tree image with my scissors so that the tree could stand alone as on image. 

Next, I die cut three pumpkins from the pile of pumpkin die set. Then I cut the wavy long picket fence and the squeaker ghosts from white cardstock. I attached the fence and grass to my inked background with liquid adhesive and popped up two of the pumpkins, the tree and ghost images with 3M foam tape.

I then stamped the Boo Y'all sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set in Versafine Onyx black ink. Then lastly, added the stitched rectangle trimmings frame cut from white cardstock onto my card.

Pile of Pumpkins
by Candice Crawford

IMG_2612

Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing an autumn card using the new Pile of Pumpkins die set from the Poppystamps new release.  Today's card is another one of my clean and simple designs. I paired the pumpkins with the adorable Country Garden Wheelbarrow dies to create the perfect autumn scene.

The background of the card is made using my Distress Oxide Inks in Mustard Seed, Abandon Coral and Walnut Stain. These blend of colors make the perfect autumn sunset for a great fall theme card.

The sentiment comes from the the Pumpkin Patch stamp set and pairs perfectly with the Pile of Pumpkins dies. I stamp the sentiment in clear Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder from Ranger.

Stained Glass Angel

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.

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.

Holly Merry Christams
by Candice Crawford

 

IMG_2375

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a good week. I am coming on the blog today to share with you a holiday card using the new Holly Merry Christmas and Holly Background dies from our latest release. 

To get started on today's card, you will need to first die cut your card front panel from a piece of white card stock. I am using the  Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die set from Memory Box. 

AD30C37D-0A1F-49B8-8387-C968FCD751CE-BBE93182-6E98-4E97-91DC-8D2BC213B21B

Next, cut the Holly Background from a 4.5 x 5.5 inch piece of white card stock. Be sure to remove all of the white die cut pieces so that your are left with just the frame. 

Now die cut the Holly Background die again three more times from a dark green, light green and red card stock. Save only the Holly leaves from the dark green card stock, the berries from the red card stock, and only the greenery from the light green card stock. 

7789E0D2-0CF4-4727-A0B3-FEAF9FDBB035-168A3148-DEE0-454A-B916-E9F7062778F5

Next, adhere your white holly background outline to a white card base with your adhesive of choice. I find spray adhesive works well for intricate die cuts such as this one. Now adhere the white stitched rectangle frame with some liquid adhesive. Now begin paper piecing the dark green, light green and red die cut holly pieces onto the card front in the proper spaces of the holly frame background. 

C9F961F2-2065-4804-8178-1200C3199218-2C33C93C-A5EC-477A-891E-3093711D023E

Continue adhering the die cut pieces onto the holly background until the background is complete. I find using a Krystal Katana pick-up tool is great to use when doing paper piecing. 

Next, die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment three times from white, red and green card stock. Adhere the red sentiment frame to a 2.5 x 5.5 inch piece of vellum card stock. Paper piece the white die cut letters from the word Merry into the red sentiment frame. Lastly add the green holly pieces.

To finish the card, add the vellum sentiment strip to the center of your card front with some liquid adhesive. The end result of this paper pieces Christmas card is so stunning.

Christmas In July Poinsetta
by Candice Crawford

IMG_2079

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a good week. I am back on the blog today to share with you another Christmas in July project. This project is a holiday card featuring the Blooming Poinsettia and the Merry Christmas Flourish dies. 

To get started on today's cards, you will need to first die cut your card front panel from a piece of white card stock. I like to make my card front panels with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die set. Next you will cut two pieces of patterned paper from the Dashing Holiday 6x6 paper pad into 2 inches by 4.75 inches.  I then adhere these two panels to the center of the white card front frame. I also added an .25 inch strip of silver glitter paper to cover the seam between the two patterned papers.

Next you can die cut your poinsettia and the Merry Christmas sentiment from white card stock. I die cut the flourish sentiment 3 times and trimmed off the flourish portion. I adhered all three layers of the sentiment together with liquid adhesive.

I assembled the poinsettia with both liquid and 3M foam tape. I added some chunky glitter to the edge of the poinsettia to give his shimmer and sparkle.

To assemble your card, simply add the poinsettia and the layered sentiment to the card base with some liquid glue.
