Challenge Reminder Anything But a Card
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_2b63

Hello! Marybeth here today with the Challenge Reminder for :ABC Anything But a Card. I needed a few more leaves for my fall tree and didn't have lots of time so I made these small ornaments  from Poppystamps Whittle Maple Leaf  Die.

Anything But a Card

Fullsizeoutput_2a18

Instead of sewing this time, I wanted to show you how easy this was to cut and glue. I like how the tiny leaf cuts even show on the felt. Only one side of the ornaments will show the cuts because you have to  glue them , one right on top off the other so they will be even sides.

After just cutting the colors above I knew I needed some green and purples for a rich fall color.

Hope you have some time to play along. You have a chance to win a $20 certificate to the store.

Flower Garden
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_10b1

Hi there! Hope you off to a great start for April! I am using the new Flower Garden stamp set from Poppystamps . It's a full large stamp with lots of sentiments.  I stamped the background  in a soft pink .

IMG_0558

I also used the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil , also from Poppystamps ! I placed the stencil over my die cut front panel then sponged with the same color as the background flowers. I made it a bit darker by going over it a few times.

IMG_0576

I cut a few greens from the Poppystamps die Spring Pots Shelves. I didn't want the card too busy ,as I already have a lot going on with the background . I just added some greens to one pot, I sniped the greens off the pots and put them all into one.

DIY Valentine's Day Vase
by Nadine Carlier

DIY Valentine Vase by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello! Nadine, here today! Have you started making Valentine's craft yet? I usually prefer to make cards but since I had this vase I thought it would be fun to tranform it into a Valentine vase.

DIY Valentine Vase by Nadine Carlier 1

I used the Whittle Hearts and Whittle Heart Frame from the new 2019 Valentine release and cut them out using some transparent glitter vinyl.

Holiday Place Cards
by Robin Tharaldson

Holiday Place Card Full With

I'm not sure how many of you set your holiday table with place cards but my mom and grandmom ALWAYS had place cards! Hopefully it's not another  tradition falling by the wayside. I still use place cards; because I know not to have my Aunt sit next to a certain cousin...not going there!!! I made these super simple place cards using Poppystamps Double Stitch Tags, Tree Line Hill die and Memory Box Open Studio Pinpoint Scalloped Circles!

Holiday Place Card CU1 With

I cut two, of the Pinpoint Scalloped Circles, from white card stock to create the base of my place card. The little piercings around the edge are so pretty!

Holiday Place Card CU2 With

I added a little snow to the Tree Line Hill die cut using Simply White  Nuvo Crystal Drops; just needed a little something. I used the smallest of the Double Stitch Tags dies to create the name tag that slips behind the trees! I added the name using a thick white gel pen!

Holiday Place Card CU3 With

Here's a side view to show you how the place card stands up; you could even put a few chocolates inside!!  The following video shows how to assemble the Holiday Place Card!!

 

I hope you give this simple project a try; I think it would look great using kraft card stock as the background for a more rustic feel!! Thanks for stopping by and check out the Poppystamps Blog for more holiday project ideas!

Joy To The World
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_6362

Hello and happy fall to you all! Marybeth here today with a Christmas shaker card, that could pop off and be used for an ornament . I used the Poppystamps Pinpoint Shaker ornament along with  Bubble Spiral and Santa's Sleigh. All linked below.

IMG_6339

I  glued a few layers of die -cut fun foam and one layer of acetate then filled with a mix of sequins and beads, all white. If you look closely  you can see I added glue around the main piece with the sleigh and placed on top of the filled ornament.

IMG_6359

I always thought the Bubble Spiral would be good to hang something on or maybe add a large balloon to the top and let it be the string.

It's a clean and simple card with Joy to the World stamped using the CL467 Tidings of Joy clear stamp set from Poppystamps .

Holiday Place Cards
by Jennifer Svare

Placecard_2

Hello!  I am so excited that the holidays are officially here!  Place cards have always been one of my favorite things to make because not only do they help guests find their places, but they also add such a nice touch to the table decor.  A little note or poem for each guest could be added inside, or they can be left blank.  We personally draw names for Christmas gift giving after Thanksgiving dinner, so these place cards can also double as the name drawing cards.

The dies easily cut through two sheets of paper which was perfect for my assembly line.

Placecards5

I love the versatility the Classic Cottage die!  The dishes I am using have little red houses and barns on them, so the way the die allows for different colors allowed me to make a perfect match the plates. 

Placecards3

When Poppystamps came out with the Tree Trunks die, I was so excited to see the small size which was perfect for this business card size design. It was hard for me not to add a skyline in the back, or a snowbank... but that is also the beauty of this die!  It allowed me to create many of these very quickly, and still look beautiful.  I "let the dies do the work..." ~ thank you, Poppystamps!  :)

Placecard_1

I think the most difficult choice for the entire project was where to put the name.  In the end, I chose not to cover the beautiful trees and I wrote each name across the door.  My name was the longest, and it fit just fine!  

Let the holidays begin... and here's to letting the dies do the work this holiday season.  :)  More info (and maybe even a bonus idea) in the video below.  

Have a great day, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Above the Town
by Olga Direktorenko

I know that everyone is impatient to start making Holiday cards but I'm enjoying the last days of fall and want to make some more autumnal projects.

Today's experiment is creating a papier-mache looking frame for my multi-layer shadow box. I am including a VIDEO TUTORIAL down below.
