Boo-Yah!

Hello Poppy Friends! Thought I'd bring you some Halloween inspiration from the new release. Hope you're well on your way with your Halloween cards. This one goes to a special grandson in the Marines. He completed basic training and is currently in the infantry. I'm so proud of this young man, and sending him cards brings me joy, and I hope he gets a big smile from them!

A shaker is always fun to receive, and is really very easy. Here's how I did this one.

DSC_0020

To create my spooky night sky, I covered my A2 sized card with Oxide Inks.

DSC_0022

I'm sure you all know what happens when water hits the oxide inks. Just be sure to let it dry before the next step.

I used my metallic watercolor paints to flick drops of copper onto the panel.

DSC_0002

I repeated the entire technique with a panel of yellow, orange and pink oxide inks. I die cut Surprise Skeleton 3 times. (Note: the die was cut 3 times before inking and adding droplets. I masked the 3 circles and added my sentiment, first stamped in black, then clear versa mark) The sequin mix will be confined to the 3 windows.

Surprise Skeleton is just too cute to be scary, don't you think? Hope you have a crafty week ahead, always the best kind!

Holiday/ Winter Blog Blitz - Christmas Tag
by Candice Crawford

9.24

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are enjoying your day and our wonderful blog blitz! Today's project  is a quick and easy tag showcasing items from our September release. For those of you who like to get a jump start on Christmas, this clean and simple tag can easily be massed produced for your Holiday gift packaging.

88283090-D8DA-4202-94AE-82182A4B6308

To get started, you will need the second to largest tag frame from the Double Stitch Tag Frames along with our new Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup and Magical Cauldron dies.

First I die cut the Tag and frame from a piece of Kraft card stock using my Gemni Junior die cutting machine. With the tag die cut, I placed the cauldron die in the center of the cards stock ensuring the steam was placed near the top of the tag. I then die cut cauldron from the tag.  

27305C0E-B5C7-469D-8228-F91F1969CD40

Next I  took the Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup die and cut the cup twice; once from a white piece of card stock and then again from a chocolate piece of card stock. With some scissors I cut the warm wishes sentiment from each of the cups.  With my distress ink blending tool, I color the white cup die cut with some candied apple distress oxide ink and colored the white warm wishes sentiment with mowed lawn distress oxide ink. 

95605AA9-2C31-48EE-81EB-875C7BE179D6

Next I adhered the green colored sentiment onto my candied colored cup with some 3M foam tape. I then outlined the  sentiment with my black micron pen to make the sentiment pop. To assemble the tag, I placed the tag frame and tag onto a piece of white card stock with some liquid glue and trimmed the edges with my scissors. 

IMG_0514

I then adhered the cup onto the tag right over the die cut caldron with some 3M foam tape. Don't you just love how the  cup looks as though it has steam coming from it. Next I took the brown warm wishes die cut and placed that onto of the tag just above the cup with some foam tape. To embellish the cup with the appearance of whip cream, I took my Marvy snow marker and brushed some white ink over the sentiment.  Then I heated the ink with my heat gun to make it puff up like whip cream.   

IMG_0513

For the finishing touches on the tag, I whole punched a circle at the top of the tag and added some lime green ribbon and christmas theme twine from my stash. I really liked how this tag turned out and how quickly it all came together. 

Thanks for joining me today for this quick and easy Christmas tag. I hope you were inspired to create one or two for yourself.

Halloween / Fall Blog Blitz - Haunt it
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.567696050096E12

Hello Everyone! We are showcasing the halloween/fall release in this Blog Blitz and have I got a fun spooktacular card for you today! You may want to get a warm cuppa and get cozy, because this has lots of details!

Poppy how to

I had this scene in my head and so I planned out where I wanted everything. This finished card is 5x7 inches to fit everything in. I die cut the Magical cauldron, because I wanted the steam parts to show. I placed the cauldron back in, securing it on the back, and also added a tiny piece of gold cardstock behind the holes. I ink blended the panel with Twisted citron, Spiced marmelade, Seedless preserved and Black soot Distress oxide inks. I also diluted a drop of gold acrylic paint with a little water and splattered it over the cauldron.
Poppy how to

I had watched a video of a pull tab technique and decided it could be done without the dies. So I created the pull tab out of black cardstock and cut a narrow strip out of the panel. Make sure you first place your elements and test placement before cutting.
Poppy how to

Pulling the pull tab "arms" through the slot and - again - testing placement, I could mark the pull tab with a pencil to cut off the excess so it wont show on the finished card. Pull the arms back out, cut with your scissors and reposition arms and surprise element. I was placing the Happy Jack O Lantern over the Scary ghost. Since the ghost wasn't quite covered I cut it to size. When placing the Jack o lantern I popped it up with foam squares, making sure they wouldn't be in the way of the ghost going up and down. With a strip of cardstock I secured the pull tab on the back. Also, when adding craft foam to the back I made sure it didn't colide with the pull tab.
Poppy how to

I colored all the die cut elements with Copics, giving them the look of a glow on the one side. This is the Spellcaster witch, how cool is she!
Poppy how to

Here I've used the Friendly cat and the smaller pumpkins are from the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick frame. I also wanted the cat to have a little cauldron-glow and the eyes are made with a gold pen. The sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set is heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Watermark1.567696145084E12

So here's the card showing the surprise ghost. I let the pull tab stick out from the top of card, looking like a tombstone that rises when the ghost appeares. On the top of the tab I wrote PULL with a gold pen.
Watermark1.567726973261E12

And guess what! I couldn't help myself from throwing in a little extra fun, so I heat embossed the ghost with a glow-in-the-dark embossing powder. I think it looks so cool!
Watermark1.567696145084E12

So much fun right?

Fall / Halloween Poppystamps Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_2d41

Hi there and welcome to the Fall/ Halloween Poppystamps Blog Blitz. You have a chance to win a prize! The prize that I am giving away on this post is: Halloween Fun Stamp Set!  I really love the font on this set and think is perfect for Halloween. My card is totally inspired by the card Dave made ( owner of Poppystamps )  You can see his beautiful card over at the store or click on the link to this die , listed below.

Fullsizeoutput_2d56

I used Peerless water color paint sheets for my watercolored images and blended the background with  distress oxide inks. The jewels are adhered upside down to go into the card base, just makes it a bit flatter for mailing and I like the way it sparkles. ( you can see the bit of extra space below in the cauldron photo)

Fullsizeoutput_2d27

Everything on my card started out white but the card base. I cut the tip of the leaf off to add to the cauldron to look a bit spooky .( maybe like a claw) :)

Fullsizeoutput_2d4e

I used three colors and just blended till I was happy , then added a few splatters of dark watercolor paint and some shimmer spritzer.

Fullsizeoutput_2d24

I wanted to show you that I cut the cauldron a few times the orange pot is layered twice and then I just added tape to the back of the purple one to put back in place, (the die and steam impression are connected). Last I adhered the two layer orange cauldron to the purple pot.

Holiday Blog Blitz: Hello Autumn
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0047

It's Halloween/Fall Release time at Poppystamps, and I'm showcasing the beautiful Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil. This sidekick frame can give your seasonal cards instant 'oohs and aahs'. It's so easy to add my sentiment to the framed area. And the stencil allows for color placement on the leaves.

DSC_0046_wm

Do you live in a place where the seasons stage a show of color? Time to bring out the sweaters. And to reflect the season on our cards too. Here's what I did to my card.

DSC_0029

I started by inking my watercolor Cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks: Wild Honey, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves.

DSC_0032

Then sprayed the inked panel with water droplets. And then added a coppery spray and white to the inked panel, letting each layer dry before adding the next. If you ink a larger panel you can cut selectively to your A2 sized card. 

DSC_0035

With the same inks I used on the watercolor panel, I carefully applied ink to just the edges of the leaves. Remember to tape down your stencil. It really helps to keep the ink where you want it.

DSC_0043

There are a couple of new Autumn Leaf die sets new this release that I love with the Sidekick frame. I cut them first in vellum then in white cardstock. After die cutting them, I added a bit of Rose Gold Embossing Powder to the edges of the vellum die cuts. I glued only the middle of the leaf to the white die cut base, and bent up the edges as if fluttering in the breeze.

DSC_0051

Autumn is the perfect time to play with our embossing powders and sequins, isn't it? It's time to add the bling! 

DSC_0050

Would you like to win the Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil? All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post. The Blog Blitz is 20 days of  inspiration. Check back each day to see how the designers use the new holiday stamps and dies. First for Halloween/Fall and then for Christmas/Winter. Lots to see, and you could win!

 Hello! Hope you all enjoyed the blog Blitz!  The winners will all be announced August 29 ... 

I have a fun little card using some of the new Poppystamps Summer Dies all linked below. I love that the Whittle Everyday stamp set, goes  with so many of the Whittle characters.

I used ALL WHITE CARDSTOCK for this card, everything was  ink blended with the brushes. 

Fullsizeoutput_2cc6

 In case you are wondering where I got the coconuts .... I just cut ends of the clouds and then colored them brown.

I didn't do the sky solid blue because I wanted it to look like light clouds in the sky background  .

Fullsizeoutput_2cc5

I used some masking tape to do the grass then picked it up and moved it down on the green area and then blended the sky portion with my blue inks.

Fullsizeoutput_2cc4

I leave my white images in the panel , sometimes easier to blend with out worrying about fingerprints. 

Fullsizeoutput_2cc9

 

Thank you for the visit and I hope you have a great day.

Blog Blitz
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0341

Poppy fans, welcome to the Summer Blog Blitz! And welcome to my post today featuring the Fun Floral Sidekick Frame and Stencil set. Talk about getting a bang for your buck, the sidekick dies and stencils are one of those 'must haves' in your collection.

DSC_0337_wm

I packed my card with all the options in this frame die and stencil set. Let's take a look at some of it's possibilities.

DSC_0336 2

The background was inked onto watercolor paper. Notice I put most of the color on the corners, and left the left center mostly white. 

DSC_0333

You can see the faint pencil marks where I indicated the area for my sentiment within the frame's window. Also added some shadow with the stencil. The  new Blooming Greetings stamp set has some florals and leaves and I added the flower, and loosely watercolored the petals and leaf.

DSC_0330

I wanted you to see how I applied the inking onto the leaves, through the stencil. 1st off, use Washi to tape down the stencil. You won't be sorry you protected the frame, and anchored the stencil! 

DSC_0342

I cut the frame twice for a bit of depth. Then added the die cut blooms, gathered together in a sort of swag. A closeup shows how each bloom is doubled. Nuvo pearl drops scattered in the flower centers, and around the sentiment. The flowers are included in this die and stencil set. And here's where the fun begins. YOU have 2 chances to win this set! 1st comment on this blog. In fact, comment on every post during the blog blitz for a chance to win the dies you want. Chance 2, follow us on Instagram, comment on the Poppystamps Instagram posts, and tag a friend! You and your friend could win this die and stencil set. One comment per post, please, and GOOD LUCK! It's a 2 week Blog Blitz through the 23rd. Leave a comment through the 26th. Check back on the 29th to see if you won! Thanks so much for joining in fun!
