PSC#84 Make It Magical!   This time we're looking for a sweet escape!  Something beautiful or unusual that is beyond what you'd find in ordinary life.   Perhaps a fantasy scene with  unicorns and dragons, or some Halloween fun?!   Throw in a little bling or glitter for an extra sprinkle of fun or let the images do the talking!    The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media.   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

Meet our October guest Michele Ferguson!  I think Michele is fun and fabulous.  Her cards always have a special twist designed to make you smile.  I think you'll appreciate her special sense of humor that will keep you on your toes!

PSC#84 Wonderful Washi!   Washi tape is a decorative masking tape traditionally made of rice paper.  It comes in lots of different patterns and sizes for a host of creative ideas.  It's a great way to add a little color and interest to your designs and once you get started using it there's no going back!    Washi can be used to create a fun patterned background, you can stick it to paper and cut out the printed images or die cut your own.     The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media.   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

We're trying something new this month !  We've asked a guest designer to join us to share even more creative ways to use your dies.  Please welcome our very first guest, Tenia Nelson.  When the Wonderful Washi Challenge was announced I knew she was the perfect choice because I consider her the Washi Queen.  I don't think I have ever seen a creation from her that didn't include a bit of washi tape - I consider it her trademark!

PSC#81 Summer Solstice - With the beginning of June it feels like Summer is in the air.. and even though the longest day of 2021 isn't until June 20 we're kicking things off today.  What does summer mean to you?  A road trip, time on the beach with the sun shining on your face (a scene card)?  Maybe it's enjoying the fresh fruits and cool drinks that quench your thirst (bright juicy colors), or a dip in the pool (watercolors?) - or a run through the sprinkler to keep cool.   It's up to you!  Let your Summer show!   All types of projects are welcome from tags and treat wraps to cards and home decor!   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.
