Creep It Real
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 10.31

Happy Halloween Everyone! 

To celebrate the holiday, I am showcasing a Halloween card made with the Spellcaster Witch and Magical Cauldron dies that were released in September. I just love the little spooky witch die and how she coordinates with the cauldron to appear as though she is making spooky witches brew!

The background of today's card was made using my distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed. I used these colors to mimic the popular Pastel Halloween theme that I love so much. I sprinkled some water onto the background piece to create that beautiful oxidation, then dried my cardstock with a piece of paper towel. Next, I die cut the witch, cauldron and frame using some black cardstock from my stash. I also die cut the cauldrom from my inked background piece to emboss the steam from the cauldron onto the paper.

I then adhered the die cut witch and the black cauldron to the colored cardstock piece with some foam tape. Next I used my wink of stella glitter pen on the witch to give the witch a bit of sparkle.

I  then stamped the sentiment, Creep It Real, from the Halloween Fun stamp set onto a piece of white cardstock in black Versafine ink. I created some banner tails on the white cardstock, then adhered the piece onto my card front with some foam tape.

I just love the color combination of this card and how quick and easy it all came together. I hope you enjoyed today's project. Have a great day and Happy Halloween!

Halloween Treat Bag Topper
by Candice Crawford

Treat Bag Topper with Watermark

Hi Everyone, 

Candice here to share with you a too cute to spook gift idea using dies from the Poppystamps September Release. With Halloween just a few short days away, I created these cute Pastel Halloween treat bag toppers to package up a few Halloween treats for my coworkers. Now if you're not familiar with Pastel Halloween, which is a new trend for Halloween, its simply taking the Halloween theme and decorating in pastel colors like pink, purple and teal instead of traditional orange, green and dark purple. The idea is for Halloween to be more cute instead of scary and gory. I love anything pastel, so designing with a Pastel Halloween theme is right up my alley. 

Treat Bag topper 2

To create my treats bag toppers, I first cut a piece of black cardstock to 4.25 inches wide x 4.5  inches long. Then I folded and scored the cardstock on the 4.5 side in half at 2.25. inches.  Next I cut each of my pastel pink, purple and teal pieces of cardstock with the zig zag stripes die. I then assembled the zig zag stripe pattern onto the folded black cardstock base using a piece of each of the three pastel colors.

Next I cut out two ghosts from the Scary Ghost die and adhered them to the bag topper with some foam tape. I then cut a strip of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment A Halloween Hello from the Halloween fun stamp set in Versamark ink. I sprinkled on some white embossing powder over the inked sentiment and heat embossed it. I adhered the sentiment on top of the Zig Zag stripes with some foam tape. Viloa!  Now you have a cute Pastel Halloween Treat Bag Topper to dress up your gifts.

This project was so easy and fun to make. I made several of these bag toppers and attached them to the top of my treat bags filled them with a mixture of with halloween themed goodies. Some of my bags contained halloween themed chocolates, while others contained halloween themed magnetic list pads and pencils. For the bags that contained the chocolates, I used the celebrated brand treat bags from Michaels. For you next gift, try dressing up your packaging with a cute bag topper.  

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed today's project.

Surprise!

Hello Crafty Friends!

We are so happy that you stopped by today! I have a super cute little Halloween scene to share with you. I just fell in love with the Surprise Skeleton, and thought he would look adorable if he were surprised by a few of his spooky friends. Take a look!

IMG_2004-wm

Our Surprise Skeleton takes a peek out the window and sees the Whittle Ghost! The Whittle Pumpkins join in on the fun! 

IMG_6398-wm

To create this card, start with a background panel embossed with your favorite brick wall pattern, then line up the Cottage Window die right in the center. 

IMG_6400-wm

After the window is cut, then stack up all of your card pieces. I used two different sheets of vellum, one yellow and one a pretty grey diamond pattern. The vellum sheets are glued onto your card base, then the embossed wall piece. Trim the Surprise Skeleton from the circle and add him behind the windows. 

IMG_6403-wm

Cut out the Whittle Ghost, the Whittle Pumpkins, Winter Berries, and Autumn Leaf Set, and arrange them on your card, creating a fun little Halloween scene.

Even my cat, Omar Kitty, decided to join in on the fun!

Magic In The Night
by Jeanne Jachna

Magic-In-The-Night
Hi friends!  It's Jeanne here today and I'm sharing a sparkly Halloween card.  Halloween really is my favorite holiday.  As a child there was no other night that was as magical and mysterious!   I got to roam the neighborhood in disguise... AT NIGHT!!!  and get treats from every house I visited!   Now that I'm grown it still captures my imagination!  The neighborhood comes alive and  I love seeing the kids dressed as superheros, storm troopers, princesses and more. 
Magic-In-The-Night-Three
My card captures a visit to the pumpkin patch on a chill night.. the sky is dark (and sparkly with stars).. .. did you hear that?   Are the spirits haunting  or is it just a black cat hunting field mice in the night?   
Magic-In-The-Night-Six
This card starts with the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Fame cut from white cardstock.   I colored the pumpkins and vines with Copic markers.  You can use any brand you like.. the reason I favor Copics is because I color ALOT.  Copic markers are easy to refill  so I never have to buy a new marker.   
Magic-In-The-Night-Five
I wanted LOTS of CONTRAST so I decided to layer the colored die cut over a panel of ombre blue distress ink.    Orange and blue are opposite each other on the color wheel making them COMPLIMENTARY.  This means that together they have the strongest contrast.   The panel is inked in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink.  It's splattered with water to add some depth.  Next I adhered double sided adhesive to the distress panel and topped it with the colored Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Frame. 
Magic-in-the-Night-Two
I stamped the sentiment from the Pumpkin Patch Clear Stamp Set on the panel and inserted it into the frame.  A sprinkle of clear crystal fine glitter pressed into the remaining exposed adhesive adds lots of sparkle and shine! 
Magic-In-The-Night-One
The Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Frame also includes a few extra pumpkin die cuts.  I colored a few and adhered them with adhesive foam tape over the pumpkins on the frame.  A Whittle Ghost and Black Whittle Cat make this scene more fun!
Magic-In-The-Night-Four
I hope this Halloween brings back some magical memories for you, and that you create some new ones to reflect on  in coming years!  Hugs to you!

Enchanted Challenge with Poppystamps
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6302-wm

Hello Friends!

Are you playing along with our Poppystamps October Challenge! This month, the theme is Enchanted, and today, I am sharing my sweet little Enchanted Kitty card! Take a look!

IMG_6296-wm

I created this Enchanted Kitty card with just a few new dies and my favorite Distress Oxide Inks. Blending oxide inks are easy and fun too! I started with the center, and worked my way out toward the outside edges using greens, blues, and some purple. When the inks were dry, I splashed them with a few water drops off a paintbrush, causing the inks to react and blend. That's the fun part.

 

IMG_6291-wm

I then inked and splashed a second piece out of yellows and oranges to cut out the full moon, using the center of the Stitchwork Circle Frames. 

IMG_6286-wm

While the ink and water were drying, I cut out the pumpkin pieces from the Pumpkin patch Sidekick Frame and Stencil. I cut different pumpkins in shades of orange, vines and leaves in green, then inked the edges of both the pumpkins and the leaves.

IMG_6292-wm

After all the pieces were cut out and inked, I assembled and glued the row of pumpkins, the vines and leaf bits, and the Peek a Boo Kitty in one long line, then glued that onto my background panel.

IMG_6295-wm

Add your big cheesy moon and a few sequins, and voila! Let the magic happen!

IMG_6300-wm

Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you will create! Make a card using at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, link it up here with our Challenge Badge, and your project might be randomly selected to win some marvelous blog candy!
