Haunted Ghost House!
by Rachel Duong


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. 


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.


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".

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. 


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


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.

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!

Fall Sneaks In
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends,

Fall is starting to sneak in. Are you ready? These sweet little ghosts from our latest release are delivering cheerful greetings in bright colors to welcome in Autumn. Take a look!


I started with our woodgrain paper card base, and added an orange stitched border. I used a light beige for the Large Stitched Envelope from the Large Stitched Envelope and Postage set. Then I created a bouquet of Fall flowers using the Potpourri Flower Set, Delightful Daisy, Dandelion Stem, Layered Lovely Flowers. and Layered Fringe Flowers, all in shades of orange, yellow, and ivory.


The little "HI" in the corner was made with the Marzipan Alphabet. Tiny white ghosts from Little Scary Guys peek out from around the envelope to say hello.


A few sparkling Fairy Gemstones in Fall colors add the finishing touch!


It's easy to start getting ready for Fall with this new release!

Thanks for joining us today!








Hello and Happy Birthday Bouquet
by Rachel Duong


Hi to all. I'm back with another card using the Poppystamps "Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set". This time I used the card front without the easel feature. The blossoms are card stock straight from the "Vibrant Violet", "Lush Green", "Sunny Orange" and "Ocean Blue" collections from Memory Box. (The tops of the coneflowers were the only blossoms I colored with a marker.) The "Pointy Lattice Plate" die creates the perfect background for the bouquet. 


Scrap paper became the vase because of its cool and artsy vibe. How fun is that?! The sentiments are the "Hello Moonlight Script" and the "Modest Banner Greetings" foil and cut die set. I also distressed the edges of the base of the bouquet to give it a bit of interest.  Blue and white baker's twine tied around the vase finishes the card.


So this is my featured card, but wait... I have more to show...


How about a card with a smaller palette and more subtle colors? I left the vase untouched as well. 


Open the card.  A sweet Hello from the "Poppystamps "Hello Moonlight Script" appears as well as a blossom with a "Fairy Jewel" embellishment. Embroidery thread in natural, tied in a bow, completes the card.


This card is similar except I left off the leaves and went with all neutrals and powder blue for the blossoms. Experimenting with color combinations is the best.


For the sentiment I used leftover pieces from the previous card. A neutral blossom and natural embroidery thread keeps with the subtlety to finish the card.


And there you have it, a compilation of beautiful flower bouquets, each one a little bit different. (The card on the left is from my last post).


I hope you enjoy seeing variations of cards using the "Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set". It is another "must have" to add to your Poppystamps collection! Have a beautiful day and see you next time!

Freestyle Hello
by Candice


Hey there crafty friends, for those of you who are in the US, I hope you had a Happy Memorial Day! 

Candice here on the blog showcasing a clean and simple card today using the Freestyle Hello die along with the Basic Junk Journal set from Poppystamps. I just adore clean and simple die cut cards and I hope you do as well. When you need a quick and easy card, I feel the clean and simple design is the best card making method to choose. 


Today's card features the mini envelope die form the Basic Junk Journal set that I cut four times from four shades of pink card stock from my stash. I assembled each envelope with liquid glue and attached a cute little heart to the envelope for some added dimension. The tiny heart comes from the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit. 


The star of card is the Freestyle Hello sentiment die, where I cut the sentiment word from black cardstock and the shadow from vellum cardstock and adhered the two pieces together with liquid glue. Each of the mini envelopes were popped up onto my card with foam tape onto my white rectangle piece where I sponged on a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink for added dimension to the card. 


I hope you have enjoyed today's clean and simple card and found some great inspiration. Until next time...Happy Crafting!

A Whimsical Rainbow Hello!
by Rachel Duong


Hello friends!  It's Rachel and I have a card using the Poppystamps "Rainbow Arch" die in a unconventional way. My rainbow comprised of shimmery, shiny pieces are freely floating against a fluid background. A super fun way to use leftover pieces from past card projects.



Steps to create this card.

1. Die cut the "Rainbow Arch" die using the metallic purple and gold from the Memory Box Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.
2. Die cut the "Rainbow Arch" again using the blue, green and gold from the Memory Box Festive and Glitzy Glitter Pads.



3. Die cut the "Heart Jumble" die in gold glitter and metallic papers.
4. Die cut the "Hearts Shining Arch" in metallic gold paper.
5. Die cut the "Hello Moonlight Script" in Purple metallic paper.


Supplies I used


6. Cut a medium weight piece of vellum measuring 4" x 5.25".
7. Scribble blue, green and yellow Sharpie markers over the paper.
8. Drop rubbing alcohol over the vellum, the colors will run.
9.  After dry, adhere the vellum to a white card base.
10. Arrange the pieces to suit your style and glue the pieces down.


This fantastical, whimsical card was quite engaging as I experimented moving shapes and pieces around the card to find a composition that felt just right. Truthfully anything goes!  This card most definitely has a life of its own. I love the way the colors dance when light hits the paper. 

Have an extraordinary day today!

PSC#104 Challenge Reminder!
by Sphoorti



Hello Poppy Peeps!


It's Sphoorti with a gentle reminder of this month's challenge - PSC#104 Flower Garden! Everyone knows that April showers bring May flowers and this month we're ready to put the long winter months behind us and take a stroll down a garden path. Show us fresh florals in any color of the rainbow because YOU decide what flowers grow in your personal crafty paradise! Projects can be for any occasion, and you're not limited to making cards. We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between! It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project! You must use a Poppystamps product to be eligible to win!



This was my take on the challenge. Hope you like it!




I started with cutting some tulips using the 2557 Layered Tulips craft die. I used copic markers to color them in. I stepped out of my comfort zone and use warm colors instead of cool ones the way I typically do. Once I was done coloring them, I adhered the petals of the tulips together.




My original thought was to layer the tulips on the fold of the card that's sticking up (the one with the Hello on it). However, it didn't look / work the way I had imagined, so I adhered the tulips to the inner fold of the card so that they look like they're peeking from behind the front flap. I topped some of the petals of the tulips with some glossy accents for shine and some others with a shimmer pen for sparkle.




I used the 2509 Hello Moonlight Script craft die to cut the sentiment multiple times with plain white card stock, and then layered them on top of each other to get a chipboard type of feel. The die cuts are very delicate for this sentiment and a bit hard to work with, but so worth it! I topped the layered Hello with another Hello that I cut out of some red glitter card stock in the Festive Glitter Pad. I used the same glitter paper to cut out a very thin strip and adhered it to the edge of the front flap.


I adhered some jewels from the Bright Jewels sticker set on the right side of the sentiment et voila! What do you think?




Now it's your turn to take on the Flower Garden challenge! Need a little more motivation? How about a prize? The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!
