Using a Die Cut as a Stencil
by Sphoorti



Hello Poppy Peeps!


The 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die has quickly become my favorite from the Poppystamps 2023 Christmas release — I just can't get enough of it! I've featured it in posts where I've used it as originally intended, such as for the Cool Yule Challenge. Additionally, there have been posts where I've taken a more unconventional approach, like using it for the Sparkling New Year Challenge. Now, I'm excited to share a post where I demonstrate a completely different use for this stunning die – as a stencil!




I started by adhering some washi tape to some thick card stock. Then, I cut a few die cuts from the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die. The reason I used the washi tape was to get a slick surface off of which I could easily wipe off any ink or texture paste. 



I used the washied-diecut to stencil some backgrounds using my favorite Distress Inks. Subsequently, I applied clear texture paste from Ranger, coating the stenciled area with it. Another stenciled area received the same treatment with glitter paste, though I've yet to finalize it into a card. I'll be sure to share it with you when I finish them up.




Upon discovering a section with accidental ink, I opted for a square card instead of the standard A2 size.




Considering I lacked a tag for a gift intended for our thoughtful neighbors, I decided to repurpose it into a tag-card. I punched a hole through the card and threaded some elastic gold thread.




To finish, I cut out multiple joy sentiments, layering them for a chipboard-like texture, topped it off with one using some silver foiled card stock from the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad and affixed it to the card. The joy sentiment isn't available anymore, so I've provided a link to a similar sentiment in the supplies list. 


And that was it!

Playful Pups And Glittery Love
by Jyoti Adhikari

Hello from Jyoti. Today, I have the exciting opportunity to bring some of the products from Christmas 2023 Collection to life and share with fellow crafting enthusiasts. In this crafting adventure, we dive into the process of  creating a card that captures the joy of the season. From die-cutting the elements, creating a background to adding shimmering sentiments, let's embark on this journey of creativity.

Crafting Playful Pups

Our journey begins with the delightful "Playful Pups" die set. Choosing one of the charming dog designs, we cut it out of white card-stock. A dash of gray Copic marker brings a touch of realism to our furry friend, creating the pup with love and care.


Whimsical Winter Woods

Adding a touch of nature to our scene, the "Heavy Branching Trees" dies come into play. These intricate tree cutouts, also crafted from white cardstock, lend a whimsical winter charm to our project. With careful placement, the trees start to form a picturesque backdrop.


Glittering Sentiments in the Sky

For a touch of magic, we turn to the "Peace Love and Belly Rubs" die set. Creating a captivating sentiment, we cut out "Peace, Love, and Belly Rubs" on a sky-blue panel. To enhance the enchantment, we adhere a diamond glitter card-stock on the front of the card-base. Then we attach the die-cut sentiment panel on foam tape, allowing the glitter to peek through, creating a dazzling effect. 


Bringing it All Together

Our final steps involve bringing our elements together. The trees find their place on the left side of the panel, creating a wintry forest scene. The playful pup takes its spot on the bottom left, and to ground our scene, a strip of glitter card-stock is added along the bottom using foam tape. These thoughtful placements add depth and dimension, completing our heartwarming card.


This card, adorned with playful pups, glittering sentiments, and wintry trees, is a testament to the joy of creating with Poppystamps. As you embark on your crafting journey, may it be filled with the same warmth and joy that these whimsical elements bring. Happy crafting!

Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello friends, Marybeth Lopez here today.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Peace and Goodwill to you all.

I haven't used this masking tape method of card making in a long time. I have seen many done in watercolor as well. I used Poppystamps  stamp set is called Christmas Banner CL513, Flock of Birds die 2568 and memory box Poinsetta Plaid 6x6 paper sheets for the bit of the frame on this card.


I added the little bird on top of the tree after I took the tape off then added the Merry Christmas Banner.


I simply added the washi tap onto my watercolor cardstock ( it comes of very easily) 

The one above is my first try, as you can see I over stamped past to tape ( on the left).  On the second try I made sure to have the wave of the stamp fit nicely to the next word. Or you can use the straight stamps it's up to you. You could fill the inside with images as well , not just words.


Thank you so much for the visit today. I wish you all Peace and Joy this Christmas .
