Poppystamps Challenge Reminder and my Guest


I used Poppystamps gorgeous :Leaf and Tendril foil plate. After it was foiled I used Poppystamps Leafy Branch Oval to cut the center of my card out. ( I didn't use the inside main die)


I loved using the: Poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set for this fall inspired card. I used white paper and colored myself with ink blending as pictured below. I did the same for the leaves.


I slightly rolled the tips of the petals and leaves. I added crystals to some of the main centers of the cluster of blooms.


The sentiment is a pinkish foil, I used Poppystamps :You Are Amazing Poe Script from Poppystamps .


Thanks for the visit and don't forget to check out my guest: Nancy linked above.

If The Shoe Fits Part Deux
by Nancy Penir


Fall Greetings, Poppy friends, and welcome to my second post using the fabulously vampy Witch's Shoe. This. time perched as a cake topper. Still plenty of bling of course, and using every bit of a slimline length.


The card is 3 1/2 x 8" and I added strips of background color just a wee bit smaller so I'd have a white frame.


My pumpkin  is first backed by yellow, then again in dark green. I then gave it a coat of Glossy Accents.


If you're looking for glitter paper cardstock, head on over to Memory Box and check out all the paper pads they have for you.

I suggest you get as many as you can, the holidays are right around the corner! (No pressure, LOL)


The flowers got a spray of shimmer for added sparkle.

Couldn't resist creating a matching envelope for my slimline Halloween card.

Hope you enjoyed this post today, and are inspired to play with some of fun new die sets in the Poppystamps store!

Glamour Ghouls
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Craft Friends and Glamor Ghouls!

Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful card for all of us glamorous Halloween loving folks out there. Check it out!


I used bright, eye-popping colors to create an Autumn design to make you smile. I started with a bright green card base, then cut a pile of colorful leaves from the newly released Fanciful Fall Leaves. I also cut a few leaves from Maple Symphony and Orchard Leaves. I cut the Ragged Daisy out of pale yellow and black and as little nod to the end of the Summer.

The Witches Shoe was the fun part. I cut the show out of shiny black paper, which makes the shoe look like patent black leather. I added the trim and buckle in purple and gold glitter paper, and assembled it all together with a colorful shoe bouquet.


Once the shoe and leaves were assembled, I added the sweet little ghost from Whittle Creatures, and the hat, broom, and cauldron from Whittle Witch. A little bit of BOO for a little tiny shoe! I finished with a few pink, yellow and green Fairy Jewels.


Thank you so much for joining us today!






You Are the Sweetest
by Nancy Penir


Hello and welcome! Nancy here, and I have one last summer card for you, before pumpkin season takes over. 


I have geraniums in my garden, do you? Our extreme dry heat takes them out in late summer, so I couldn't find one plant blooming, to post a picture of their beauty for you. Their thick lush leaves grow together blanketing the soil, and the flowers grow high on sturdy stems. I wanted to capture that for my card.


All pieces were cut from white cardstock and sponge inked. That way I could assemble the blooms from deeply inked to pale.

The sentiment is black embossed onto clear cardstock. Be sure to use heat resistant clear cardstock so the heat doesn't warp it.

Layered and dimensional, I will certainly handmake a custom envelope. 

Are your cards taking a turn toward autumn? Sometimes saying goodby to summers bright colors is bittersweet. At least my cards are still blooming! Have a wonderful week!

Brilliant Geraniums
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends. Candice here back on the blog with another card share. Today's project features the Brilliant Geraniums flower die set, the Petite Blooms die set and The Say It Big clear stamp set.  


For the background of the card I used the Scalloped Stitched Frames die set that I cut from gold mirror cardstock and white cardstock. For the Geranium leaves on the card, I die cut the images from green cardtock and used my green Copic markers to add additional shading and dimension. 


The sentiment was stamped once in black Versafine Onyx ink onto a vanilla cardstock piece that was die cut from the Basic Ovals craft dies. The sentiment was stamped a second time in Versamark ink onto  a piece of  black cardstock and heated with white embossing powder. I fussy cut the "yet to come" portion of the sentiment and paperpieced the sentiment onto the vanilla oval sentiment piece with liquid glue. 


Lastly I die cut the a flower from white cardstock from the Petite Blooms flower set and added to the sentiment oval panel with liquid glue. The sentiment panel was then attached to a gold oval layering piece with liquid qlue and popped up on foam tape. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until net time, happy crafting.

Hey Poppy friends! Tiffany here with another fall inspired card to share. I'm mixing new Poppystamps dies with previously released dies to create a fun Halloween card. Do you prefer sweet and cute Halloween or spooky Halloween? I enjoy both. This card is more on the sweet and pretty side with the addition of flowers. Let's dive into the details.

First, I created the card base and adhered pink cardstock from the Berry Red paper pad, trimmed to 4 x 5.25 inches. Next, I created a gel print background with a variety of dye inks. I used pink/orange, orange, and a dark orange color to create a gradient. After adding the ink to my gel plate, I used a brayer to mix the color and then pulled it with plain white paper. I found that the ink did not bead up as much if I added a layer of sticky embossing ink down first. I splattered gold watercolor on the background for a final touch of sparkle.



After the background was complete, I die cut all of my card front elements. I did direct to paper with the same colors of dye inks and die cut all of the elements - Layered Fringe Flowers, Lovely Layered Flowers, and Halloween Assemblage. To the flowers, I added ink blending to the center and on the tops of the flowers for some variation. I also added shading to the bottom of the pumpkin. I die cut the spider web from gold mirror paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror paper pad. I adhered all of the elements down and finally added gemstones to the flower centers.


Finally, I die cut the sentiment from gold glitter cardstock. I inked a panel with brown dye ink and die cut the sentiment again, stacking and offsetting the layers slightly. I adhered the card front on at an angle for a little more fun. :) 


I hope you enjoyed the card and are inspired to try out the new release. I just love the juxtaposition of spider webs and fall colored florals for some reason. Hope you have a great weekend and that you get to do something crafty!
