Sending Hedge-Hugs
by Nancy Penir

Hi friends! Poppystamps has some new sets in the store, and thought I'd show you 2 of my favorites. They're a couple of hedge hogs, done whittle style, and they die cut right and left. Just perfect for Valentines, or weddings and or anniversaries when posed kissing! Let's take a look!

I just loved setting my scene on Memory Box's Sunset Blush Washi Tape. So much so, I did a trio of sending hugs cards using the floral Washi.

On the front card I posed the kissing Hedge Hogs over Poppystamps' Wavy Heart.

I die cut the heart in several shades of pink and red, and assembled my heart like a puzzle.

On the third card I used the washi covered card stock to die cut the heart, and kept the washi with waves in the design. There's so much you can do with large washi rolls. I played with colored cardstock for fun, and loved them all!

For the first card I used grey cardstock

I also fussy cut a few of the floral designs and popped them up with foam at the top.

I also popped up my hedge hogs with foam.

I hope you check out the store for some fun new dies. They're sure to become favorites for Valentines or any card you make. 

Happy New Year, and happy crafting!

Welcome Christmas
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0012

Christmas Greetings, all! Hoping you're enjoying the holiday season, even with all that's plagued us this past year. I have a card to share that hopefully brings some cheer along with inspiration, using some dies that can be used any time or season.

The Townhouses trio is a fun set of 3 townhomes with separate roofs, allowing you to change up the colors. My card today uses them on a shaker.

After I folded my 4 1/4 x 11" cardstock I positioned my square frame where I wanted the shaker to be. Then drew within the square window.

I kept the pencil mark faint, but you can see where it's drawn (if you look carefully). Then I used post it notes to create a barrier for sponging.

The sponging was done rather randomly, slightly heavier on top, sort of like a snowy flurry.

Here's a closeup of the townhomes. I decided to add 'snow' to the rooftops (embossing) and doubled the homes so the windows would have a bit of contrast.

Snowflake sequins are the sweetest shaker elements, don't you think? 

Despite a year of chaos and turmoil, it's still the most wonderful time of year. And my prayer is that you find peace and joy in the beauty of the holidays. Blessings!

Stained Glass Angel
by Sue McRae

20201125_155715c

Hello everyone! Can you believe that tomorrow is already December? Yikes, Christmas is just around the corner! I have another holiday card for you that uses the Fairy Sugar Glitter Glue, this time with the Stained Glass Angel.

Just like the Holly Background card I created here, I die cut 3 layers of Neenah 110lb card stock, layered them and attached that to a piece of white card.

Next I filled all the open areas with glitter glue and let it dry overnight.

I die cut the angel one more time from silver glitter card stock and used that as my top layer.

For some visual interest I die cut the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle from white and glued that to my card base and added the glitter panel on top.

For the sentiment I went with silver heat embossing on white card stock using the Christmas Quotes stamp and die set.

Thanks for visiting with me today and wishing you a great week!

2 Halloween Cards
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0063

Can you believe it's the end of October? And that means it's time for one of of our favorite holidays... Halloween!

DSC_0069_wm

How about a couple of too cute cards with some of Poppy's new dies! Hope you added some of these to your stash.

DSC_0033

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

DSC_0066_wm

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

DSC_0068

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!

DSC_0061_wm

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

DSC_0062

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.

DSC_0052

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!

DSC_0066_wm

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

DSC_0065_wm

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.

Sue-McRae-Oct-2020-Think-Pinkc

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!
