Snow Speckle Washi Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0015

Happy Holidays to you! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a card made with the new Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape Poppystamps has available in the store. 

DSC_0018_wm

I've used several of the new dies out this season, plus Mod Poinsettias. And here's a hint on a way to use the wide Washi.

DSC_0024

I covered a red card stock panel with the Washi, and die cut 3 smallest poinsettias. The width makes it easy to cover a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

The touch of softened red with the white dots went nicely with the pastel card. I added white die cut poinsettias, sponged inked with the same aqua behind my Bethlehem scene. The sentiment, O Holy Night was cut down a bit to fit on the bottom.

DSC_0022

Hope you enjoyed today's holiday post, and hope your holiday cards are well on their way to being done!

Have a wonderful, Happy, Crafty Holiday!

Merry Christmas Tag
by Marybeth Lopez

 

88C40967-2F45-4A05-9B13-B02604BE7241

Hello friends, Marybeth here today sharing a Christmas tag. As you can see below this beautiful: Poppystamps  Merry Christmas Flourish die is gorgeous on its own! I wanted to show you how it can be altered a bit, very simply.

C5583323-2536-4EB0-B98D-D11F6FEAB14E

Since I wanted to add holly to the Christmas tag I decided to snip off the flourish part of the die, simply by cutting it off in a few places. I will also be making a few tags that are red and white without patterned paper and only the greeting.  This Merry Christmas die can fill up the whole large tag and still make a beautiful tag that can be mass produced, easily.

I used the beautiful 6x6 paper pack from Memorybox. I turned my die so the plaid would be at an angle as shown in the photo above.

FF8CCCC9-A00E-43BA-B1C7-AE1C59F446AC_1_201_a

I also used Double Stitch Tag dies form Poppystamps and the Holly Outline die. I love adding bells to most of my tags at Christmas. Kinda lets me know when someone might be taking a peek :)

For this tag I used the largest tag die my tag is about 3.5 by 5.3

Holiday Blog Blitz: Holly Frame
by Sue McRae

P1370409c

Hello crafty friends, Sue here with my first card for the Poppystamps design team! This is a perfect time to pop in for a visit because there's a blog blitz going on with great Christmas prizes every day!

Today I'm featuring the new Holly Frame and Stencil set and it's a beauty with a lot of detail going on around the frame, around the circular window and on the leaves.

P1370413c

I started by die cutting the frame from green fibre card stock, layering the stencil over it and applying some dark green ink with a blender brush for a soft contrast on the leaves.

P1370397c

Then I die cut the Delicate Poinsettias from red fibre card stock and decided to add a little sparkle to the petals. I took a finger dauber, tapped it into Versamark ink and lightly dabbed the edges of the flower petals. I sprinkled on some red glitter embossing powder and heat set. Now the flowers have a pretty glittery edge.

P1370398c

I also die cut the poinsettia from vellum, cut apart the petals and used them as leaves. For the sentiment I used Tidings of Joy stamp and die set and gold embossed the word Joy. This is a great little set of sentiments to have for Christmas cards.

P1370411c

For my assembled card I cut a piece of gold glitter card stock to place behind the holly panel and adhered everything together. I finished off by adding red Stickles around the frame and adding a jewel for the flower centre.

Holiday blog blitz: Spinner santa
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572440796767E12

Hello everyone! Have you started your Christmas card collection? The Christmas Blog Blitz is in full swing and I've got some fun inspiration for you, plus a chance to win the cute Whittle Santa face die. Read all the way to the end for info.

Watermark1.572440796767E12

Since this santa die is symmetrical I imediately thought to make a spinner card. So i die cut the santa twice and colored it with Copics. The 4 die cut pieces are easy to assemble.
Watermark1.572440796767E12

I used my adhesive runner on the back of one santa and made sure the silver thread was possitioned in the middle. I then put glue on the back of the other and attached them back to back.

IMG_20191030_141235

The gorgeous patterned paper is from Memory Box and I die cut a circle that fits the santa. I then aligned with the card base to insure the holes would match.
IMG_20191030_141235

With my adhesive runner I then made sure the silver thread and santa was secured in the middle of the hole on the card base.
IMG_20191030_141235

Then I placed the patterned paper over the base and finished off with a frame cut from silver glitter cardstock. I also used another Memory Box paper for the inside of the card as a backer for the santa.
IMG_20191030_141235

From the same dottet paper I cut the shadow of the Holiday Joy, and the word itself was cut from the same silver glitter cardstock.

Watermark1.572440884597E12

Now all you have to do is turn the little santa, close the card and put it in the envolope and you'll be sure to bring a happy smile to the face of someone special.

Like I said, you could be the lucky winner of the Whittle Santa Face die. Follow these instructions.

A Purrrrfect Holiday Blog Blitz
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6416-wm

Hello Friends!

We are all so happy to hear how much you are all enjoying our Holiday Blog Blitz! Today, I am sharing a purrrrrrfectly delightful holiday card made with my favorite die from the new release, Whittle Jumping Kitty! Take a look!

IMG_6412-wm

You all know how much I love kitties, and the new Whittle Jumping Kitty is extra special. The die set includes both the front and the back view of the kitty, along with that fuzzy tail. I created a super clean and layered look for a modern holiday design.

IMG_6406-wm

I started by cutting all the teeny tiny pieces I needed for my card, which included two kitties, the tail, the Whittle Stocking pieces, the tiny trees from the Mountain Background, and all the components of the Whittle Fireplace, all enclosed in the Pointed Rectangle Frames.

IMG_6408-wm

I cut the Whittle Jumping Kitty in grey, added the tiny tail, and then put him on the white brick fireplace. Would you believe I had a cat that used to LOVE climbing up the brick fireplace just like that? Then I cut the front of the kitty, also in grey, and then trimmed off the legs so he would fit inside the bright pink stocking.

IMG_6410-wm

Now you've got two kitties, one a bit naughty, and one a bit nice!

IMG_6418-wm

I assembled all the fireplace components, and added the tiny tree trio on the mantle! Too cute! What could that little naughty kitty be jumping for? That little Christmas mouse that comes with the Whittle Fireplace set!

IMG_6413-wm

Surprise! Today's prize is The Whittle Jumping Kitty! The Holiday Blog Blitz runs from November 2-14. We are giving away some very sweet holiday blog candy on every blog blitz post during this time. All you need to do to win is to leave a comment on EVERY posts that offers the prize you'd like to win.

Hi there and welcome to the Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz! The design team will be showcasing some of the new, beautiful dies from the mini Holiday release. All you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win this beautiful and simple to use Snowglobe Kit Craft die

1C51D88B-8804-4BB3-A63F-E54CE6009808_1_201_a

First thing I did was use a blending brush with oxide inks , to make the background  sky. Then I splattered it with my shimmer pen.

D73D5EA4-C35B-444D-9DF7-FF82B8493953_1_201_a

At first I was going to add the fun foam to the back of each snow drift ,then decided to only add it to the largest one so not to have it too thick.

3CF485C0-70A5-43D8-977D-882237A56CFC_1_201_a

I used the circle die to trace a circle just a bit bigger than the inside of the snow globe. I layered the outer frame die about 3 or 4 times. I used craft store fine glitter paper for the snow drifts, then added a bit of chunky glitter, for more snow.

295FD8ED-44AA-4AEA-B2E5-04D11C51DA9F_1_201_a

I colored all my paper with Copic markers.  The trees are made from the Holly Outline Die from Poppystamps . So excited that Memory box will now carry patterned paper !!!! For the snowy backdrop to this card I used Dashing Holiday 6x6 paper pack. I just love those playful deer from last year , I will probably use them every Christmas.

Holiday Blog Blitz: Merry Christmas
By Nancy Penir

DSC_0017

Hi everyone and welcome to Poppystamps' Holiday Blog Blitz. I'm featuring the new Christmas Flourish. Let's have a closer look at this beautiful die.

DSC_0020_wm

Gorgeous isn't it? And do you notice anything else? The holiday paper, maybe? Yup. A beautiful book of double sided papers available this holiday season too! Let's take a look at a fun way to make a couple of holiday cards with this new die.

DSC_0003

I cut the Merry Christmas die out several times with glitter paper. This is an intricate die so I used my shim to get a precise cut. Also I knew I'd be backing the die with a darker shadow and cut it out with black Cardstock as well.

DSC_0004

A white background circle was shaded a bit with ink using a blender brush.

DSC_0009

The green Christmas die cut just popped against one of the new papers included in the Holiday Paper pack.

DSC_0007_wm

Couldn't resist adding the grosgrain ribbon die behind the sentiment on this card. 

Would you like to win this beautiful new Christmas Flourish die? Here's how.

Mistletoe and Plaid
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_3718

Hello , Marybeth here today with a simple Poppystamps card, easy for mailing. Once I figured out my design I decided this flat card would be easy to make many and simple to send. I love the red and white Christmas design. Memory box now sells 6X6 paper packs ( so excited ) I chose the red and white plaid paper from the pack to add behind my mistletoe from panel (Dashing Holiday pp1001)

IMG_3704

I folded my card base then opened it up and placed the die where I wanted it and ran it through my die-cutting machine. Then I simply cut a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 piece of patterned paper and placed behind the top of the card.

IMG_3706

I turned it over and added clear tape and some glue for the tiny pieces.

EZy Watermark_21-10-2019_02-35-13PM

I for the berries I used Poppystamps Holly Outline from last year , you could use anything round or even a hole punch.

IMG_3707

As you can see in this top picture I decided to add a few more white berries so that it was either, a group of one ore three.

EZy Watermark_21-10-2019_02-20-20PM

The sentiment set is from also from last year, I love the font and longer narrow alignment of it. It worked well for this card. I lined my envelope with red cardstock to add a bit more detail when opening the card. Looks simple with lots of love and blessing for Christmas.
