PSC#88 - Happy Birthday! Did  you know that the number one occasion most people send a card is to celebrate a BIRTHDAY?   It's always wonderful to reach into your stash and find just the right card.. and the best part of making your own is being able to personalize it for the recipient.  This month we're looking for all types of birthday projects for all ages!  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 first guest designer of 2022 - Jacquie Southas!   She's got a clean style with just the right amount of flair and she isn't afraid to try new things.  On her blog you'll find creations made with clean die cuts, watercolor, embossing, copic coloring and more!

I'm a west coast girl who has slowly made her way south from northern BC to beautiful San Diego where I live with my family. Well, sort of, as we are reaching the stage where our son and daughter are starting to move on and out. As a lifelong crafter I have to keep my hands busy and paper crafting, especially card making, is my favorite way to create and stay out of trouble.

Meet our November Guest Shay!  She is a new crafter, but is so supportive and encouraging to many online. We love her use of color in her clean and simple designs, and how she uses her products in clever ways to stretch her supplies.

I fell head over hills for cardmaking during the pandemic, and find so much joy creating small pieces of artwork to brighten someone’s day. I’ll be sharing all my cardmaking adventures at my blog shaycreating.com! So thrilled to be a guest designer for Poppystamps!

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!
