Boo Y'all
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends,  Candice here with a Halloween card using several dies from the the latest Poppystamps release.              To create the cute halloween scene, I began with die cutting a cloud stencil border from some white cardstock and using the whittle cloud border die cut to sponge the cloud image onto my card front using Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink.


Next I die cut the spooky tree image and the grass border from some black cardstock. I sniped the circle frame from the tree image with my scissors so that the tree could stand alone as on image. 

Next, I die cut three pumpkins from the pile of pumpkin die set. Then I cut the wavy long picket fence and the squeaker ghosts from white cardstock. I attached the fence and grass to my inked background with liquid adhesive and popped up two of the pumpkins, the tree and ghost images with 3M foam tape. 


I then stamped the Boo Y'all sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set in Versafine Onyx black ink. Then lastly, added the stitched rectangle trimmings frame cut from white cardstock onto my card. 


I absolutely love how this card came out. It's nice how all of the dies pair well together to create a cute and spooky halloween scene. Thank you all for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed the card project and found inspiration. 

Until next time, happy crafting!

Twisted Halloween
by Sue McRae


Hello, Sue here with my last Halloween card of the year. 

I finally had a chance to use the Twisted Tree Oval die! Love all the details with the cut lines throughout the tree for texture and depth and the gnarly branches add a bit of creepiness!


The tree was die cut from black card stock so the ink blended background would pop against it.

I used the Whittle Monsters for this card. It's such a fun die set with a variety of spooky critters. I chose the skeleton which was die cut from silver matte card stock and the mummy was die cut from a grey flecked card stock that I inked around one edge in grey.


For the witch and her broom I did some quick Copic colouring.


I added the sentiment with silver heat embossing and assembled by card.


Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I wish you a Happy Halloween!

Happy Pumpkins
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello friends! Marybeth Lopez here today , sharing this group of fun and happy pumpkins from Poppystamps. These Haunting Pumpkins.... just look kinda happy to me and make a great Halloween Card or for someone with a birthday in October, keep the face off and perfect for fall.


This was a simple card to make if you don't make a mistake (haha). Like I did.

The Happy Halloween clear stamp is also from Poppystamps called Halloween Ingredients.


After diecuttig the pumpkins I used  Oxide ink  and my blending brush to blend in the two colors.  Not sure if you can see but I added bit of two sided tape on my glass mat so that the pumpkins would stay in place, when I blended the ink. If I left inside the negative the sides would still be white. 


So, I decided to add a bit of shimmer and blended two colors. When I was all finished with my card I dropped it in the pool of shimmer ink. It was all over the back side. I ended up cutting the back off and trimming down the front of the card then just added it to a new card base. Happy Save :)


For the front of my card I used striped patterned paper from memory box called Garland Stripes and Dots.


Hope you have a happy week and wonderful Halloween .  Have you ever had a happy save?


Take care and God bless!

Pile of Pumpkins
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing an autumn card using the new Pile of Pumpkins die set from the Poppystamps new release.  Today's card is another one of my clean and simple designs. I paired the pumpkins with the adorable Country Garden Wheelbarrow dies to create the perfect autumn scene. 


The background of the card is made using my Distress Oxide Inks in Mustard Seed, Abandon Coral and Walnut Stain. These blend of colors make the perfect autumn sunset for a great fall theme card. 


The sentiment comes from the the Pumpkin Patch stamp set and pairs perfectly with the Pile of Pumpkins dies. I stamp the sentiment in clear Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder from Ranger. 


This card comes together rather quickly and can easily be massed produced. Whip up a few Fall cards in now time and be ready to send grateful blessings to your family and friends this Fall season. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. Until next time... Happy Crafting.

Christmas Lantern
by Nancy Penir


Hello! Nancy here, and I have a Christmas card for you today. Poppystamps has some gorgeous new holiday dies in the store, and I thought I'd bring you some inspiration with one or 2 of them.


Simple Lantern Oval is one of the new craft dies, and I paired it with another newbie, a sentiment die called, Snowy Merry Christmas.


Here's a shot of what I did... I knew I wanted to use some of the new Memory Box designer papers with the gold running through, and chose this black and white plaid. Then I die cut the lantern die 4 times, once with black glitter paper, and 3 times with plain black cardstock. I traced one of the ovals on white and cut it out by hand.


The white oval was given a glow with some Squeezed Lemon Oxide Ink before gluing the lantern layers together, with the glitter on top. Kinda looks like the lantern is all 'aglow'. I cut the 'merry Christmas' sentiment 3 times from glitter card stock and carefully cut the white snow off the merry, before adding it to the top of the black layer.


I love how the red shadow gives it a nice pop of color!


Speaking of pop, you can see how all those layers gives dimension to the card.

It's September folks, time to get a move on those holiday cards! Check out all the new dies, stamps and cardstock in the Poppystamps store. Have a great week!
