Spooky Party
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Poppystamps Friends!

It is spooky party time, so I created a fun little spooky invitation just for you! I used the Proper Brick House to create Spook Central with some of our super cute whittle characters. Take a look!


I started with one of my favorite background panels, the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles from Memory Box. Then I cut the Proper Brick House out of black cardstock, and added grey pieces for the bricks. The grey house is one large rectangle shape that I had to trim very precisely to fit inside the edges of the house. That was the tricky part. 


I cut the windows and door out of yellow and orange, and did a little piece work with my craft tweezers for all the tiny details.


I added tiny little details to bring the Whittle Monsters to life, like tiny pieces of cardstock for the mouth and eyes.


I love the way all these little Whittle characters came together! The Monsters fit right in to the windows and doors, and the tiny Mummy and his cat are arriving for the fun! The Whittle Clouds and Whittle Pumpkins are the perfect size too!


These spooky friends are ready for a socially distanced spooky night, whatever that looks like this year! Have a Happy Halloween and keep haunting!

Halloween Haunted House Easel Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today with a Halloween Haunted House Easel Card. I first started with the Poppystamps Winter House Pop Up Easel Die Set. Even though this die set was meant for Christmas is also great for Halloween too. I cut the base out with orange cardstock and then cut the house out in yellow and brown. I matted the brown with the yellow to give the windows and door a yellow glow. Then cut the windows and roof out in black cardstock. For the drips, I used the purple cardstock from the Memory Box Frosted Glitter Paper Pad

I tucked in some ghosts from the Poppystamps Squeaker Ghosts Dies in the windows.

I used the Poppystamps Boo Outline to add as a ledge to prop the easel card too.

Christmas House Pop Up
by Jeanne Jachna


There is nothing better than HOME for the holidays!   I love sending one of a kind handmade cards for all occasions.  I've always felt that special fold cards were a little complicated and out of my league.  With the introduction of EASEL craft dies,  Poppystamps makes it easy enough for even me to make!


In fact, the hardest part about making this card was deciding what colors to make it.  Since my daughter recently moved into a turn of the century modern colonial I thought she'd get a kick out of this one decked out like her own house with Evergreen painted shutters and entrance.


The card base is made by cutting the largest die twice and assembling the two pieces.  Next cut the smaller house shaped die and add a sentiment.  Cut another smaller house shaped die cut (the pieces in pink) and decorate it for the cover of your card.

The die set includes snow drifts to hang from the window sills and porch roof.  I cut mine from glitter paper. I was so tempted to hand cut little candles to put in the windows! 


Here's how the sentiment looks on the inside of the card.  I stamped a sentiment from the CHRISTMAS TIME stamp set on a Memory Box Stitched Oval.  The fancy font, and pretty stitching on the  oval makes this even more beautiful!


The easel card can be displayed like this.  I see little tree decorations placed around it on the mantle - comfy cozy.


This card looks fussy with it's colorful layers but was so easy to make!  I'm tickled pink that I could make a fussy card like this!

Brick House Easel Card
by Sue McRae


Happy Monday crafters! I’m joining you today with a charming little scene on an easel card.


There’s lots of die cutting on this card but it’s easy to put together. The hardest part was choosing the colour scheme.


I started by die cutting my easel piece which is from the new Porch Pop Up Easel Set. The die set is meant for a front porch scene but I used only the two dies that create the card base and added other dies from my stash to make my own scene. This makes your easel card design possibilities, endless!


For the background of the card front I used some happy yellow patterned paper and added a grass border to the bottom of the panel.


I took the Proper Brick House and die cut it several times from different shades of teal card stock and assembled the house and I added a red door for a pop of bold colour.


The trees were die cut 3 times from white card stock and once from green card stock from the new Frosted Glitter Pad. I layered these all together to create thicker trees.


I die cut some small flowers from the Floral Cluster in yellow and red card stock and added them below the windows and used the Whittle Cloud as smoke from the chimney.


I think this card could be used for many occasions and would also be great for a guy so I left the sentiment on the inside simple with Just A Note stamped on a Colwell Label. This label die cut is what helps to keep the card in the easel position but it will mail flat in an A2 envelope. No extra postage needed!


Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great week!

Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Card
by Nancy Penir


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!

Christmas Bird House Easel Card
by Nadine Carlier


Hello! Nadine here and today I am sharing a Christmas Easel Card I made using one of Poppystamps' new Christmas dies, the Bird House Pop Up Easel Set.  For the birdhouse, I used the Memory Box Garland Paper and for the snow, on the roof, I used the Memory Box Frosted Glitter Paper. For the wreath around the birdhouse opening, I used some green cardstock and then used Fairy Sugar in Ruby Crystals for the berries on the twigs.

Above you can see how the card looks when it is standing but here is what it looks like when laying flat. It will fit perfectly into an A2 size envelope.
