Autumn Decor Plate
by Nadine Carlier

Autumn Plate by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here I have had this plate for a while now and never use it, so I decided to decorate it so it is a pretty piece to have out for the Fall season. 

Supplies 1

I used three different colors and styles of StyleTechCraft Vinyl. I used Opal Vinyl in AmberLuster Vinyl in Bronze and Ultra FX Vinyl in Rust

Supplies 2

I die cut out a bunch of leaves using Poppystamps Maple Trio and Poppystamps Autumn Leaf Set dies. I then arranged the leaves onto the plate to get an idea of how I wanted them and then adhered them into place by pulling the backing off of the vinyl and sticking them down. Super easy to do with a beautiful outcome to display for the season.

Snowflakes and Dove Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello there! I hope you are enjoying the Poppystamps Blog Blitz along with your September! For this card I used Dove and Olive Branch along with Leafy Snowflake die from Poppystamps .

I am giving away the Leafy Snowflake die today, you have a chance to win just by leaving a comment on this post. You can check below for all the extra ways to have a chance to win.


When I first started this card I wanted to make it mostly all white white ,  ended up  fine gold shimmer paper and white.

You can either leave the inside in or out and change the color. This one die has so many possibilities .



I added the white part of the frame onto Kraft cardstock and then decided to add the negative part of the die, back in. I really like both.



I layered my dove a few times and then decided to glitter the last layer with fine glitter. I added sticky paper, cut it out  then glittered it .



I tried so hard to capture the shimmer , I think you can see it in a few of the other pictures.

I hope you all have a blessed week ahead, thank you so much for the visit. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to with the snowflake die.

DIY Halloween Tea Light Holder by Nadine Carlier PS 2

Hello, Nadine here and Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! I may not like scary movies but I love to decorate for Halloween. So for my first Halloween craft for this year is a DIY Halloween tea light holder.
Have you ever envisioned something in your head but have no idea if it will turn out how you envision it or not? Well, that was exactly what kind of project this was for me. Luckily, it actually turned out!

I cut out the Poppystamps Spellcaster Witch die from the StyleTechCraft Bright Green Luster Craft Vinyl and wrapped it around the base that I created. I then cut out the Poppystamps Scary Ghost and the Poppystamps Friendly Cat from the StyleTechCraft Purple Luster Craft Vinyl.

Challenge Reminder Anything But a Card
by Marybeth Lopez


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


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


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 .


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.



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.




I hope you have a wonderful weekend, with some sunshine too! Spring is in full bloom here in California with all the rain we had this year.

Have fun if you go shopping at the Poppystamps store!
