Hi everyone! It's crunch time at the Penir household. Plenty of goings on and shopping and wrapping, and cards are on their way. One thing I never have enough of is tags! So I put together some simple but festive tags for you today using the new Deco Star Frame.

I gathered all my supplies, especially some glitter paper and gold foil paper. I picked the Pinpoint Main Street Tags set and found it was the perfect size for my Deco Frame.

I stuck to jewel tones on black glitter paper, but you could use anything glittery, also adding a second tag with an embossed sentiment in gold. If you keep scrolling down, you'll see I didn't waste a cut! I used most every die cut in different color combos.

3 tags with left over frames in blue, red & green. This time dressed up with jewels and bells!

One last tag with the white glitter frame on a bright pink glitter card stock.

And a last wish for all of you, Merry Christmas from me, and Poppystamps!

Challenge Reminder: CAS Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here again today with a reminder to enter in the Merry & Bright December challenge! We are looking for projects that make the holidays your favorite time of year. For me, it is the "Joy" of the season so I made a CAS Joy Christmas card. Hope it inspires you to give it a try.

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier 1

I used the Seed Snowflake Joy Craft Die for the main focal point on my card.

I then used the Seed Snowflake Outline Die as an accent behind the letters.  The Tidings Of Joy Clear Stamp set works perfectly with Seed Snowflake Joy Die to create the sentiment for my card.

The rules are simple and you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!! For all the details click HERE!  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

See you next time!

A Gift This Christmas
by Donna Peachey

Snapseed

Christmas wrapping paper, tags, bows, gifts...

They are part of the Christmas tradition for many of us.

So I wanted to create a card that combines these features with the Simple Bethlehem Stitched Frame craft die.

Combining old and new as a 'Christmas Gift'.

Here's how it was made...

IMG_3951

I've started with the Simple Bethlehem Stitched die, cut 3 times out of black card stock.

Using Tim Holtz Core'dinations for the top layer provides a lovely pitted surface that works well with the gilding wax colours I've chosen to use, but if you don't have any you could always try an embossing folder.

IMG_3957

Glue the frames together, then cut a piece of cardboard to size as shown.

IMG_3939

Here's all the stamping you'll need to do - for this part, anyway!

Don't worry about precise stamping for the Studio Blotter stamps as that's not the look we are going for.

Snapseed

The other stamps are all from the Christmas Time stamp set.  

I've heat embossed 'Believe' so it stands out more on what's quite a busy card.

Snapseed 2

Once the Stitched Frame has been glued to the cardboard, cut out a silver base layer that's slightly bigger all 'round and distress the edges of it.  Then leave it to one side for the moment.

Using twine, add a piece from top to bottom and attach from the back.  Do the same from left to right before adding a bow and an acetate Heart Taglet.

Once you are happy with this (you may want to tweak your twine a little), attach to the silver base layer and leave to dry.

The base of this card uses the beautiful fonts of the Christmas Time stamp set to create a faux 'wrapping paper' look.

Other than heat embossing the word 'Peace' in red, the rest is all first and second generation stamping with black ink.

IMG_4367

Add a strip of corrugated paper that's been ripped top and bottom before attaching at an angle from left to right.

IMG_4252-2-2

Then add the Stitched Bethlehem scene and some sequin stars.

The final touch is simply to add a smidge of gilding wax to the corners.

IMG_4253-2-2

Does it look like a wrapped gift to you?

I hope it does, at least in part.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...

It's That Time of Year
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0047

Hi and Happy Holidays everyone! Nancy here today with a card made some of the new dies from Poppy.

DSC_0042

I'm absolutely in love with the new Whittles, and LOVE how they all work together.

DSC_0033

I created my own textured background by using the smaller Whittle Wood Frame die, and cutting it several times from stamping masking paper. (You can find it on Amazon, I used Inkadinkado.)

DSC_0038
The masking paper allows for effortless inking with a sponge tool. I then added some white opaque droplets onto my card front. When all was dry, I cut out a window for my Whittle Rudolph, inking it around the edges in light blue. My frame is cut several times and inked as well.

DSC_0044

If you look closely at Rudolph, you can see that I inked him a bit around the edges to give him depth, and lightened his mane with a white pencil. Can't forget to mention the cute little red rhinestone nose!

Hope you're inspired to try something new, (if this is new to you), with your backgrounds and dies.

Happy Crafting!

Saying Hello (and Goodbye) to Autumn
by Donna Peachey

   Watermark_17-11-2018_12-32-07

 

Brrr...  it's getting cold outside!

The last of the leaves are falling and there's barely a bee to be found.  That's certainly the way it is for us in the UK anyway.

And as I'm not ready to face Winter just yet I've made a card that celebrates the colours of Autumn instead.  With all of the richness of the warm browns, oranges and reds...  A stark contrast to the icy white blanket of Winter.

Want to see how it was made?

  Snapseed

I've started off by using the Forest Stag left over from my previous post.  

  Snapseed 6

To get that speckled, textured look I've added Crackle Accents.  Simply dot on, leave for a few minutes to react with the Distress Stain and then use a paint brush to smooth all over.  If you didn't add enough Crackle Accents, don't worry.   You can add more.  Just be quick with that paint brush unless you are wanting more speckles.

  Snapseed 7

I've used Brusho's to colour my leaves.  You'll only need two, but I've made extra so I can choose which I prefer. 

  Snapseed 8

The card base has the subtlest of designs on it.  Here I've used the Dot Grid stencil by Memory Box, with just a touch of Stormy Sky and Hickory Smoke ink.

  Snapseed 9

To add more visual interest without adding more colour I've used one of the frames from the Art Deco Frames and Phrases die set to cut out an aperture.  Don't discard that inner piece as you'll be putting it back in shortly.  But first, add a layer behind it by gluing on the same shape again.

You'll also need a black frame from the Stitchwork Rectangle Frames craft die set. 

   IMG_3868

Here's a view of the finished card from below.

To assemble, start by putting the aperture piece back.  I've simply cut a piece of scrap card to size and glued it behind the card base to hold everything in place.

Next add the Forest Stag, gluing two strips of scrap card behind it first.

You'll need to add that frame now.  I've spot glued it in the middle, just along the left and right hand sides. 

   IMG_3871

Then add the Brusho leaves, a stamped Hello and bee...  and two more leaves cut from the Ragged Daisy.  Did you notice that I added Silver Gilding Wax to my Brusho leaves?

Thanks for stopping by...

And if you are celebrating today, a very Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez


IMG_7996

Hello! Hope everyone is happy and well. Marybeth here today. I have a simpler card made with a Double Stitch Tag , Mistletoe and Holly stamp and die and Christmas Time stamp all from Poppystamps .

IMG_7988

Without worrying about being too perfect I lined up the largest tag die on a slant, then ran it through my big shot.

See below. Place top layer only to edge you want cut.

IMG_7989

I colored in the stamped holly with Copic Markers added a bit of white Nuvo Crystal Drops and some Nuvo Glitter Gloss brush pen, over the top of the green holly leaves.

Fullsizeoutput_1058

I added the white top layer onto the red card base and used some fun foam underneath . I adhered the cut dies then stamped the sentiment Merry Christmas.
