Hi and welcome to a post featuring the new paper packs from Memory Box together with Poppy's new holiday dies.
Have you visited the shop lately? So many new stamps & dies, and one of them, Christmas Quotes, comes with 4 matching dies. The die shapes fit well with one of the papers included in Dashing Holiday Paper Pack, that can be used for sentiments.
I've combined one of the packs' plaids with Shimmering cardstock, and a die cut of Stained Glass Snowflake, also cut from some glitter cardstock.
All the glittery accents add such a festive feel to holiday cards!
Hope you're inspired to take a look around the shops, both Poppystamps and Memory Box. So many fun new products to make your crafting shine for the holidays!
Hello! Nancy here, and I have a Christmas card for you today. Poppystamps has some gorgeous new holiday dies in the store, and I thought I'd bring you some inspiration with one or 2 of them.
Simple Lantern Oval is one of the new craft dies, and I paired it with another newbie, a sentiment die called, Snowy Merry Christmas.
Here's a shot of what I did... I knew I wanted to use some of the new Memory Box designer papers with the gold running through, and chose this black and white plaid. Then I die cut the lantern die 4 times, once with black glitter paper, and 3 times with plain black cardstock. I traced one of the ovals on white and cut it out by hand.
The white oval was given a glow with some Squeezed Lemon Oxide Ink before gluing the lantern layers together, with the glitter on top. Kinda looks like the lantern is all 'aglow'. I cut the 'merry Christmas' sentiment 3 times from glitter card stock and carefully cut the white snow off the merry, before adding it to the top of the black layer.
I love how the red shadow gives it a nice pop of color!
Speaking of pop, you can see how all those layers gives dimension to the card.
It's September folks, time to get a move on those holiday cards! Check out all the new dies, stamps and cardstock in the Poppystamps store. Have a great week!
Hello Crafty Friends!
Thanks for swinging on over to the Poppystamps blog today! I am sharing a bright and bold holiday card today, created with the new Holly Background! Take a look!
This Holly Background die has been super popular with our design team! We all have our little touches to make this personal and unique, and you get to see just how versatile this pretty die really is. I started with a light grey background panel cut with the Wrapped Stitched rectangle from Memory Box. I then added the Holly Background cut in a nice thick white cardstock.
To create the inlay pieces for the Holly leaves and berries, I made two panels with bright, vivid alcohol ink and YUPO paper. I just used shades of green and red in big drops to create the panels from which I cut out the red berries and green leaves.
Once the alcohol ink had dried, I cut out the red berries and adhered them to my card base with a pair of craft tweezers.
Once the berries were in place, I cut the Holly background again in green, and carefully placed the pieces like a little holiday puzzle. I love how bright and bold the alcohol ink holiday colors stand out against the light grey.
I love the sharp, clean lines and bright color of this! I think I'm going to make a few more and even play around with a few non-traditional holiday colors too! When I first planned out my design, I was originally going to add one of our big holiday words on the bottom, such as JOY, or Noel. But once the bright YUPO pieces were in place, I wanted to leave it just as it is, fresh and modern and cheerful.
Thanks so much for dropping by today! There's always something new and fresh on our blog! Come by every day for great ideas and inspiration!
Hello! Nadine here and today with another Christmas card I made using the new Christmas release dies. On the background, I used some watercolor paper and color bursts. I die cut out the Holly Background Die using white cardstock and also the Snowy Merry Christmas Die which I also die cut out in Rinea Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper. Then I ran all of the die cut pieces through my Xyron Creative Station Lite and adhered them to the front of my card. Added some sequins and then I was done.
Poppy Peeps, the year is closing fast, and the holidays are right around the corner... time for holiday card making! Poppystamps has a new die set called Winter Porch Pop Up Easel, and I have a little inspiration today you might find interesting. Have you ever made an easel card?
It's super simple with the right dies, and Poppystamps has 'em!
The front of an easel card rests on a piece on the inside, and best of all, it fits into an A2 sized envelope.
First I die cut all the pieces. You'll notice I tripled the windows and door, and doubled the triangle eve wanting extra dimension for those pieces.
All 7 pieces are included in the set.
Once put together, the fun begins! Time to dress up the front! Snowy eaves, a glitter tree, and holiday wreath. Hard to miss that this is a happy holiday greeting card!
The Front of the easel tilts open and back, resting on a piece I Created from Birch Press Nobilia set.
Here's a closeup of the Nobilia medallion, thrice cut and showing the edges of all three die cuts. Looks like a holiday front porch mat, doesn't it?
The inside of the card is dressed up too, with a greeting from another new set just released, Holly Merry Christmas. All the deets on product used will be listed below.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, and stay safe. Indoors crafting is a great way to escape the summer heat!
