Rainbow Ghosts
by Sue McRae


Hello crafters, Sue here with a fun and colourful Halloween card featuring the cutie Squeaker Ghosts. Don’t worry, these ghosts are totally friendly!


The ghosts are really easy to ink up with Distress Inks if you take your blending tool and smoosh some ink blobs onto your cardstock. Then you an easily die cut out the ghosts from all the different colours.


After I die cut the ghosts I did add a little bit of shading around the edges with the same ink colour. I added a piece of black cardstock behind the eyes and a dot of white gel pen for the eyeballs.


I took the Adriana Wreath and die cut it from black glitter cardstock, adhered it to my card base and added my inky ghosts around the wreath in rainbow order, of course!


The Boo Outline was die cut from purple glitter cardstock and black cardstock and the sentiment was white heat embossed onto black cardstock.


I think this turned out to be a cute and cheery card, no spookiness here!


Thanks for stopping by the blog today and have a wonderful week!

Challenge Reminder | Cards for Kids
by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  I hope you're having a great day in your craft room!  If not, how about a Challenge Reminder to get you going?  This month's theme is Cards for Kids - it's easy to enter. Simply make a card using this theme and at least one Poppystamps stamp or die, and then upload it here.  At the end of the month, a winner is randomly chosen for a gift card!  Easy! (Check out the link for more info.)


My project is an interactive card/gift "crate."   With Halloween in mind, two little Nuvo drop eyes stare out of a crack in the crate.  The crate has been marked with a "fangs" warning from the adorable Halloween Ingredients stamp set from Poppystamps.  The Halloween Pumpkin stamp and die set from Memory Box makes wonderful tags, and the Trick or Treat sentiment fits perfectly. 


The crate is a slide-out box with a wrap-around sleeve.  The base slides out, and as it slides out, flat cubes come to life (thanks to the rubberbands that help them pop into cubes) and they pop out of the box.  The cubes are easily decorated with Memory Box patterned papers - so many wonderful designs for fall! The theme for this is Halloween, but these make such a great Christmas or birthday gift card box with presents popping out of it! 

I originally made one of these using a wonderful tutorial I found online, but that tutorial was in metric measurements which made it difficult to use a scoring board and it took more steps to make.  In the video below, I've converted the measurements from centimeters to inches so the blank paper can be taken directly to the scoring board, eliminating the step of measuring it all out. Because of the entertaining nature of these boxes, I also have reinforced the base box so it holds up to it being opened again and again. 

To see this in action as well as a quick tutorial with instructions, click on the video below.  Thank you for stopping by today!  Here's a link to the video if you don't see it below.  Have a great day!

Halloween Haunted House Easel Card
by Nadine Carlier

Halloween Haunted House Easel Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here and today with a Halloween Haunted House Easel Card. I first started with the Poppystamps Winter House Pop Up Easel Die Set. Even though this die set was meant for Christmas is also great for Halloween too. I cut the base out with orange cardstock and then cut the house out in yellow and brown. I matted the brown with the yellow to give the windows and door a yellow glow. Then cut the windows and roof out in black cardstock. For the drips I used the purple cardstock from the Memory Box Frosted Glitter Paper Pad

I tucked in some ghosts from the Poppystamps Squeaker Ghosts Dies in the windows.

Ghostly Boo
by Marybeth Lopez


Boo to you! Hello, Marybeth here today, sharing this simply fun Halloween Boo card.

I use Poppystamps Boo Outline , Squeaker Ghost and memory box Frosted Glitter Pad.


I cut out these cute little guys a few times, as I wanted a bit of a shadow and thicker texture so they would stand out on the white panel.


Again I kept this clean and simple with only two colors, that way star of this card would be the word die and the sweet little Ghost.


I keep some of my dies together, much easier to keep in one place .


Thank you for visiting us here at Poppystamps today, I hope you find some inspiration to shop and create . I know this craft we all share has been a great blessing during these difficult times. 

We are still very smoky with active fires to the east and west of where I live. I miss the blue sky and pray for so many including the firefighters! Did you know many firefighters sleep on the ground or top of the firetruck when fighting the fires. They are awesome!

Take care and God bless!






Pop Up Boo
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello and Happy Boos to everyone in our spooky Poppystamps family! I just love making Halloween cards, and lucky for me, Poppystams has some really darling little spooky characters that are perfect for some sweetly scary cards this year! Take a look!



Isn't that little guy cute? He's from our brand new Whittle Monsters die set, dancing through the pumpkin patch on this Pop Up Boo Halloween card! I used a dark palette of black, deep navy blue, oranges and white to create this Halloween scene from the Adriana Pop Up Easel Die set.



The Adriana Pop Up Easel Set is a complete die set that includes all the die to create and score this amazing pop up easel base and card front. I cut the base piece in black, the front panel in black, and the cover panel with the oval and the leaves in navy blue, and layered it all together.



I cut the Twisted Tree Oval in black, then again in blue, and then fit the pieces together to create this outdoor nighttime scene.



I also took a small holed paper punch and cut a group of tiny orange circles, and placed them over the tiny berries from the Adriana Pop Up Easel piece.



Oh, it's coming together now! I cut the Whittle Monsters in bright white, and added the skeleton guy and a few pumpkins from Pile of Pumpkins on the front. Scary, but in a friendly way! Open the Pop Up Easel card and you will find . . .


a pop up BOO all for you! I used the Boo Outline and Squeaker Ghosts for the inside. This card is a little dark and hard to read anyway if I tried to write on the inside, so I am going to enclose a little spooky note inside the envelope.


You can stand the Easel card to reveal the BOO, and the tiny ghosts will remain hidden in their secret spot. This card was so much fun to make! I hope you give it a try and create something sweet and spooky for your Halloween pals!


Thanks so much for joining us today!
