Hello and welcome to Poppy's newest dies and stamps and papers and washi... well you get the idea, it's Blog Blitz time, and it's called, 'Garden Variety'. Win, win for you. A chance to win, and to see all the new, together with lots of inspiration and ideas.

I'm showcasing 'Proper Brick House', a 3 piece die set, that allows you to be as detailed and creative as your paper crafting mind can take you! And the die set you could win. Take a look!

The possibilities for being creative with this die are mind bending! I decided to go all out and use those tiny bricks on my house.

I die cut the house 3 times, using 3 different colored card stock. Note: if you want most of the bricks to stay, add a sheet of printer paper behind your card stock. Also helps to have this handy dandy brush tool to quickly remove all those tiny bricks. One other note, I traced around the die, so I'd have a solid piece of a little bit darker pink to glue down my bricks. Same with the chimney.

If you love paper piecing with pattern, you're gonna love Memory Box's new paper packs!

I gave my Proper Brick House a bit more dimension by adding fussy cut windows and door. You don't have to do this step, but wow, does it make that sweet house pop!

No foam tape for my mini dwelling, just layer on layer, on layer!

Quick Tag
by Sue McRae

IMG_0203c

Hello crafters, Sue here with a quick and simple tag for your last minute holiday preparations. At this point of the month I'm done making Christmas cards and am focused on making tags to add to all my Christmas gifts and I want the tags to be quick and easy to make because it is a busy time of the year! 

IMG_0181c

I started off my choosing a patterned paper from the Memory Box Dashing Holiday Paper Pad, my coloured card stock and glitter paper. No inking today to make the tag building go quicker. Choosing patterned paper adds visual interest and glitter paper adds texture. A time saver.

IMG_0187c

To create a glow behind the windows of the townhouse I placed the die cut house on some scrap yellow card stock, traced around it and cut along the inside of the lines. I swiped a shimmer pen across the paper to add sparkle and adhered it to the back of the townhouse.

IMG_0215c

After assembling my tag I stamped the sentiment with black ink and die cut the word Joy.

IMG_0223c

To make the tag extra festive I added a couple of bells along with ribbon and twine.

IMG_0211c

I hope this inspires you to make your own Christmas tags, they add an extra special touch to the gifts you give friends and loved ones.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone and see you in January!

O Holy Night
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572808249747E12

Hi Poppy fans! It's now 5 days till Christmas and I have a card for you that shows the calm of that holy night.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I die cut and Copic colored the Whittle sleepy fox and the village houses. I picked out the windows from the houses and colored them individually so the houses look like they're filled with light and trees.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I forgot to take a picture of the background (sorry) but before assembling I inkblended the backgrond with oxide inks and splattered it with silver acrylic paint. I hand cut 2 panels for snowy hills and inked the top of them. The top layer is popped up. I then popped up the houses and fox and shaded under them with Copic markers. Notice the fox' pawprints. He loves the silence and the squeeking snow.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

My plan was to use the O holy noght flourish as smoke from one of the chimneys, and so I wanted to heat emboss it. In order not to break the intricate cut I layered 5 cuts. I then heat embossed 3 layers of WOW! white twinkle embossing powder. It's white with silver glitter and perfect for the smoke.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

This is my last post this year, so I thank you for all your sweet comments and I hope your Christmas is as calm and cozy as this scene.  I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Blog Blitz: Merry Christmas
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-1

Hi there Poppy Friends! The Holiday Blog Blitz is continuing today, and I am showcasing the fun new Townhouses die set. I will have more information about how you can win this wonderful die set at the bottom of my post. Let's get started with my card, shall we?

IMG_5165

I started my card by ink blending Distress Oxide Ink in Peacock Feathers at the top of my card panel. I then die cut the Merry Christmas Flourish sentiment from white cardstock and attached it to the top of my card panel. I am creating a slim line card today. My card panel measures 3 x 8 inches with my overall card measuring 3.5 x 9 inches. 

IMG_5166

Next, I used the Stitched Hills die set and die cut my hills from white cardstock. I attached the hills to my card panel with foam adhesive so my ground/hills would have some dimension.

IMG_5170

For my houses I used the Townhouses and Village Houses, and for my trees I used the Whittle Trees die sets . I die cut them from white cardstock and then used my Distress Oxide Ink sponges to add ink to the homes and tress. I didn't add any fresh ink to my sponges, I just used the "left over" ink that was left on my sponges from another project. I find this works well for small die cuts and when I don't want the color too intense. 

IMG_5171

I also added a small strip of yellow cardstock behind my houses for the light in the windows.

IMG_5175

Next, I began adding my houses to my card front. I used both liquid glue and foam adhesive, keeping some houses flat while other are raised.

IMG_5199

I also tucked in some Whittle Trees around my houses. I love how all of these dies work so well together to help build your scene.

To finish my card, I attached everything to my slim line card base. This is a fun card size to build a scene on and it can be mailed in a standard sized business envelope without any extra postage.

And now for the part you've been waiting for! You could win this gorgeous and versatile Townhouses die set!

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.

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.

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.
