Have you seen the new Whittle Monsters? Too cute to spook!

A very simple card, rather graphic in style using the monsters with new 'Boo' die.

So easily die cut with the new glitter cardstock. I cut the bottom boo with green glitter card stock and the top with purple. But what to do with the reverse colors? Create another card of course!

Love the curly spider web. It's part of Poppy's Clear Stamp set,  Halloween Ingredients.

The pumpkins are cut from Rinea foil paper. These 2 are going to a couple of grandsons, together with some candy treats.

You all have a Happy, safe Halloween. Take care my friends!

Spiders! A Halloween Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0064

Hello Poppy Peeps! You are in for a treat today. After all it is Trick or Treat season, and I have a fun and spooky card to inspire.

DSC_0053_wm

My card combines some sponge inking, embossing, and die cuts too. The new set, Halloween Ingredients has just about everything you need to make this card.

The background was stamped with all the words, and embossed with white powder, before blending Distress Inks in several colors. All those cool little vial bottles were colored with copics, and the set even includes the tags in several sizes. The tiny spider is also a stamp from the set, and I stamped and fussy cut some out. I have no idea why, spiders freak me out! Much friendlier on a card!

One of the vials is tipping over, and several spiders have escaped! I just love a good scary story on an A2 card!

Do you know a few special people who would smile receiving  a cute and slightly scary Halloween card? I think I've sent out more greeting cards during this Covid season than past years combined. Love surprising people dear to me with a greets treat!

Halloween is right around the corner! Hope you and yours are safe and well, and planning to enjoy the holiday safely.

Challenge Reminder: Think Pink

20200928_154923c

Hi everyone, Sue here with a reminder about the monthly challenge going on at Poppystamps. This month the theme is Think Pink which also coincides with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Think about pulling out different shades of pink cardstock or ink, paints or alcohol inks. Whatever you can think of.

October 2020

I made a shaker card using the Graceful Heart Frame and some inlaid die cutting.

20200928_154914-c

The frame was card from red cardstock (a colour that looks great with pink), 3 shades of pink cardstock and just for a bit a contrast, some yellow cardstock. I did all the inlay first and then stamped the sentiment before working on the shaker part. I used a variety of shaker elements in clear, white and iridescent since the card had so much colour going on.

You have all month to play along with the challenge and a random winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to spend in the Poppystamps  store! Yay, for more crafting supplies! Can't wait to see your Think Pink projects!

Hi and welcome to a post featuring the new paper packs from Memory Box together with Poppy's new holiday dies.

DSC_0151

Have you visited the shop lately? So many new stamps & dies, and one of them, Christmas Quotes, comes with 4 matching dies. The die shapes fit well with one of the papers included in Dashing Holiday Paper Pack, that can be used for sentiments.

DSC_0010_wm

I've combined one of the packs' plaids with Shimmering cardstock, and a die cut of Stained Glass Snowflake, also cut from some glitter cardstock. 

DSC_0013

All the glittery accents add such a festive feel to holiday cards!

Hope you're inspired to take a look around the shops, both Poppystamps and Memory Box. So many fun new products to make your crafting shine for the holidays!

Maple Symphony
by Sue McRae

20200911_133108c

Happy Monday crafters! Sue here with my first autumn card of the season. We’ve had a hot summer in my area and now I’m grateful for the cooler weather. With the cooler weather comes the changing of the leaves, which are so pretty!

20200911_133125c

I started by taking white cardstock and applying Distress Inks in shades of blue. Then I heavily sprayed the panel with Perfect Pearls I mixed with water. I did not use my fine mister for this because I wanted to create texture on the background with a larger mix of droplets. Love the pearly shine!

20200911_133154c

I took this panel and ran it through my die cut machine with the Maple Symphony die which die cuts the maple leaves and the swirly lines. I put aside these leaves for a future project and adhered the panel onto the white card base.

20200911_133136c

I die cut the Maple Leaf Symphony once from white cardstock and once from black cardstock. The black leaves were inlaid onto the panel. The white leaves were inked up with more Distress Inks and when I adhered them down onto the panel I offset them a little bit so the black inlaid leaf below would show a little bit to give a shadow.

The sentiment is white heat embossed on black card stock and I added a black Double Stitch Rectangle Frame to finish off the card along with a sprinkling of gold gems.

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you have a great crafty week!

Spread your wings and fly

Hello everyone! All good things must come to an end and today I'm sharing my last card for Poppystamps as I chose to step down from the design team due to personal reasons. Butterflies to me symbolise change and growth, so it absolutely fits just right. It wasn't until after I made this card that I thought of the funny coincidence, that I used the Beautiful butterflies sidekick frame on my first card for Poppystamps as well. You can check it out here

IMG_20200819_205112

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.
IMG_20200819_205112

The butterfly frame I covered with the coordinating stencil and lightly ink blended a bit of Distress ink over the butterflies. As I assembled the card I didn't like the white frame, so I ended up ink blending the whole frame.
IMG_20200819_205112

I layered the 3 frames only adding glue to the frames, not stems, flowers or butterflies. I thought it would make it look more airy. I then stamped a sentiment and cut out butterflies from glitter cardstock with the coordinating (and included) butterfly die. 

Watermark1.598450555054E12

I adhered them with a dot of glue just to the centre of the butterflies for a bit of dimension. Just look at that sparkle.

That's it from me guys, it's time for me to spread my wings and fly. I enjoyed creating with these wonderful dies and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. I'll still be making cards so do stop by my blog or Instagram, I'd sure love to see you!
