Hello Fall
By Birgit Norton

Hello Fall2

Hello Poppystamps fans, Birgit here with you today!  I'm overjoyed to bring you my first post as a new design team member for Poppystamps.

Hello Fall2

Don't you just love the new fall release?  I started by running the Pinpoint Rings through my die cutting machine on a Kraft cardstock A2 size card base.  

Hello Fall2

I cut the Large Stitched Envelope out of black cardstock, filling it with several Whittle Oak Leaf, cut from orange and soft butter cardstock.  I tucked in a couple of the Mushrooms & Toadstools, and finished the card off using Marzipan Alphabet to create my sentiment.

Hello Fall2

I wish you the happiest fall season!

Amazing You!
by Rachel Duong

IMG_2733

Hi friends, it's Rachel! I'm here with a new Poppystamps challenge. The theme is "Old School". Create a project using at least one Poppystamps die. Link it up and one lucky random winner will receive a prize. Florals are timeless and classic, so I am sharing a themed card using the beautiful "Perfect Posies Bouquet" die.

IMG_2720

To create this card I die cut the Poppystamps "Perfect Posies Bouquet" and the "Teardrop Butterflies" dies in a sturdy white cardstock. I die cut the butterflies again using the Memory Box "Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad". Next I blended blue, green and teal distress ink over the bouquet. For dimensional effects, I doubled up some of the blossoms. For sparkle, I applied glitter glue to the blossom centers and petals. I chose a deep blue card base from the Memory Box "Ocean Blue" collection. A hot foil sentiment from the "Modest Banner Greetings" set adds a fresh silver accent. White splatters fill in empty space. Finally, an "Old School" sheer, organza ribbon finishes the card.

These are some of the supplies I used.

Do you use organza ribbon on your cards? I remember the first time I was introduced to cardmaking, organza ribbon was often used. It is so delicate, soft and pretty enhancing many styles of cards.

I hope you get a chance to take part in this challenge. And by the way, with the start of a new school year, why not give your "Old School" card to a favorite teacher to tell them how amazing they are?! Have fun and don't forget to link your card up.

Take card and happy crafting~

Another Clean and Simple All-Die Cuts Card!
by Sphoorti

CC52BB62-1F48-4D0F-B882-EDAA1AFE2300

 

Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

It's Sphoorti again! Remember my post from the other day? I made another card that's very similar with the extras I had leftover, and stepped it up just a bit.

 

This one's also clean and simple, and completely made with just die cuts. No stamping whatsoever!

 

E6315E95-31FD-49BA-927E-069B4338F4BA

 

I ran the 2464 Marzipan Alphabet craft die multiple times through my Big Shot. All my alphabets were connected, so I ran them through to save time for the next time I might need some alphabets. I stacked a few letters together (just random ones, but with at least two glued together for extra dimension). I stacked the letters H and E and Y about five times for some extra dimension. I used Candied Apple and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks to color the H, E, and Y.

I cut some silver mirror card stock using the 2478 Scalloped Stitch Frames craft die and adhered one of the frames to my card panel.

Then I used the 2530 Large Stitched Envelope and Postage craft die to cut an envelope out of vellum. I kept the top flap of the envelope open. I adhered some alphabets inside the envelope and also foam mounted the envelope by adhering some foam tape discreetly behind the alphabets in the envelope.

 

259CC5C9-0364-4AB2-A7B6-B24428E5E79D

 

I took the colored H, E, and Y, and adhered them in a way that it looks as if they're coming out of the envelope. I coated them with glossy accents for some shine.

 

E6315E95-31FD-49BA-927E-069B4338F4BA

 

The card looked a little barren to me, so I adhered a bunch of little enamel hearts in red and white coming out of the envelope. And that was it!

Clean and Simple All-Die Cuts Card!
by Sphoorti

7557ABB7-A5D7-40EC-A04B-FDE88A27468E

 

Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

It's Sphoorti, and I have a very clean and very simple card for you today - all made with just die cuts, and no stamping! And all you need is one set of dies, i.e. the 2464 Marzipan Alphabet craft die!

 

5717A4F9-4995-4D22-9D66-37AE191339F9

 

Although very clean and simple and easy to make, this card requires a lot of die cutting. It's not for the faint of heart. But not to worry at all - just grab a comfortable chair, play an old sitcom you like (I personally opted for The Big Bang Theory), and die-cut away! It'll go by very fast!

 

I ran the 2464 Marzipan Alphabet craft die multiple times through my Big Shot. All my alphabets were connected, so I ran them through to save time for the next time I might need some alphabets. I stacked a few letters together (just random ones, but with at least two glued together for extra dimension). I stacked the letters H and I about five times for super dimension. I used Candied Apple and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks and colored the H and I.

 

At first I planned to scatter the letters all over the card panel (with no rhyme or reason) around the letters H and I.

 

A

 

But I'm a control freak and not too big a fan of chaos. I used some washi tape and attached the letters H and I at an angle at the bottom of the card panel. Then I glued the remaining letters in front of, behind, above, and below. Nicely and evenly distributed and arranged and ended up with this. 

 

B

 

I felt like something was missing, so I used some glossy accents for the H and the I. I still felt like something was missing, so I scattered some heart stickers and felt much better!

FinalHi Crafty Friends,
Are you a Crazy Cat Lady? If you are, you will love the Fall 2023 Release Whittle Cat dies from Poppy Stamps. I paired them together on a paw print scallop card.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: How many cats do you have?
A: Me? 0

I made a matching envelope for these kitties using the Large Stitched Envelope and Postage Die. I finished my card with the cute Marzipan Alphabet MEOW.

Haunted Ghost House!
by Rachel Duong

IMG_2682

This house might be full of ghosts, but they are the welcoming, friendly kind! Hi, it's me, Rachel and the ghosts, to wish you the most magical day. I'm back with a fun, haunted house using the Poppystamps "Neighborhood Home Pop Up Easel Set" from the newest fall release. 

IMG_2649

The house pops up with it's own stand to be displayed along with your Halloween decorations. It can also be adhered on a card base-- both fit perfectly in an A2 envelope.

IMG_2636

I began by die cutting color combinations using the Memory Box "Twilight Purple" and "Lush Green" paper packs. I had a blast planning out which colors would go for the shutters, siding, etc. I chose "Black Glossy Paper" for the roof. It is listed below. The ghosts took center stage and were dressed in sparkles from the "Festive Glitter Pad". 

IMG_2644 (1)

The card base is a heavy weight purple cardstock. Next I die cut black for the shadow outline of the house. Before gluing the house down, I arranged the ghosts exactly where I wanted them to go. I made sure one was behind the door as it defined the details on the door. I also love the ghosts peeking through the windows. 

IMG_2643

Notice the ghost visitor at the door. It is dressed in pearl white and has a distinctly different tail than the home owners. 

IMG_2677

Purple embellishments of Open Box "Autumn Fairy Jewels" adorn the card. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Poppystamps "Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments Clear Stamp Set" in white on a black strip. I allowed blank space to write a note, the sentiment and jewels provide a stopping point for the card to stay upright in true easel fashion.

IMG_2681 (1) 

The Poppystamps "Neighborhood Home Pop Up Easel Set" is awesome, it can be used for countless occasions. I have to admit while creating this card I imagined I was a haunted house designer and also a friendly ghostbuster! Take care and have a crafty, magical day. See you very soon!
