Booyah 3


Hello! I cannot help myself but when September comes, all I want to do is make Halloween and Christmas projects!  Well, today I have a ghost spinner card using the Oval Fold Frame.   I started my card by die cutting two black card panels with the Oval Fold Frame. This will allow me to sandwich the ghost on clear thread between the two panels. With one of the panels, trim off where the embossed line is for the fold on the oval panel.  I also trimmed a little more, about 1/8 of an inch so that when I sandwich the two panels the other panel with the fold will still fold nicely onto an A2 black card panel. I used some very tacky adhesive strips to suspend my clear thread between the two die cut panels.  The ghost will be adhered so that it is centered in the oval space.

To decorate the panel, I used the Picket Tall Curve Border die and die cut from orange cardstock and adhered to the front panel with liquid glue.  For the inside, I trimmed some purple cardstock and then inked with Distress Ink Wilted Violet ink and then splattered it with Distress Metallic spray.   Once dry, I adhered to the back panel.   For my sentiment, I used the Poetic Lowercase Alphabet and die cut out the word BOOYAH! and layered this onto some orange and black cardstock that was die cut with the Scalloped Stitch Frames.   I adhered this to the front of the panel with foam tape.

I die cut the ghost from several layers of cardstock both white and white glitter paper from the Glitzy Glitter pad.  So that the ghost matched on both sides, I flipped my paper over so that one ghost was die cut so that the background was the front of the glitter paper.   I then used foam tape to adhere the ghosts together and sandwich the clear thread in between the foam and ghosts.   Spin the ghost several times and then close up your card.  Once it is opened, the ghost will spin and shake around!   Check out this video to see the ghost spin!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Spooky Haunted House Card
By Jyoti Adhikari

Are you ready to embrace the eerie charm of Halloween in style? Look no further! Hi! This is Jyoti here today. In this blog post, we're diving into the enchanting world of Poppystamps products to craft a spooktacular Halloween card that's perfect for the season.

For this bewitching creation, I'm using two fantastic Poppy Stamps products. Our first star is the "Neighborhood Home Pop-Up Easel Set," which provides the perfect element for our spooky masterpiece. With Halloween just around the corner, it's time to transform this set into a haunted house like no other.

Our second star is the "Whittle Scary Guys" die set, featuring two adorable ghosts, a playful pumpkin, and two mischievous monsters. These charming elements will add a delightful touch of fright to our card.

Crafting the Haunted House

To create the eerie ambiance of my haunted house, I began by die-cutting the house pieces from dark gray cardstock. The roof and windows came to life with brown cardstock, and I added a spine-tingling touch by ink blending the house with Black Soot, Barn Door, and Dusty Concord on various sides.


For the windows, I conjured a fiery, spooky glow using Distress Oxide inks in Black Soot, Barn Door, Carved Pumpkin, and Wild Honey. I also crafted delicate curtains from yellow cardstock and vellum, adding to the eerie charm.

Assembling the Spooktacular Scene

With all the pieces at my fingertips, I meticulously assembled the haunted house.  This is an interactive card as it can be propped up while in open position. Hence works perfectly as a display. It found its home on a card- base crafted from shimmery black cardstock, adding a touch of elegance to the spookiness.


Inside the Haunted Greeting

The inside of my card is just as enchanting as the outside. A white panel awaits your personalized message to the lucky recipient. I also used the classic "Happy Halloween" die from Hero Arts to create a stylish centerpiece that holds the card upright when open. This is also the sentiments for my card.


Whittle Scary Friends

But what's a haunted house without some ghostly company? I couldn't resist die-cutting two ghosts and two monsters from the "Whittle Scary Guys" set. Adding depth and character with Copic markers (N3, N2, N1, N0), I gave them a playful shadowy presence. I added them on the front of the haunted house using foam tape. One purple monster even found its way inside the card, adding a delightful surprise for the lucky recipient.


The Final Result

And there you have it – my cute yet spooky Halloween card, ready to enchant and thrill. With the magic of Poppystamps products, you too can craft a Halloween masterpiece that's sure to impress.

Stay tuned for more enchanting creations with Poppystamps products as I continue to explore the world of paper crafting. Wishing you a hauntingly creative Halloween season!

Elegant Whittle Cats
By Teresa


Hi Friends! Glad to be on the Blog today sharing my elegant Whittle Cats card.

I knew the minute I saw the Oval Fold Frame that I had to create something fun with this die.


I always start a project by coming up with a color scheme I like and go from there. I cut the Whittle Napping Cat and the Whittle Purring Cat from a dark gray and added black shading by ink blending and and pen details to their faces.


For the Oval Fold Frame, I cut that from blush pink and the Picket Tall Curve Border from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 Pack. On the inside, I added a white A2 size panel, cutting the 4 1/4 side down to 4 1/8 so that the card could fold correctly. 

I used the cut out from the Oval Fold Frame and the extra oval Die that comes with the set, cut from white and ink blend some color onto this die cut.  I also added another oval behind with the same Vintage Pastel MirrorPad and the Basic Oval Set. This really made a nice frame when you open up the card!


The Sentiment is from the Modest Greetings 2 Foil & Cut set, hot foiled with gold.


Thanks for popping by! Until next time, I hope you have a great day doing something you love.

Country Barn Whittle Pig
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_3Hi Crafty Friends,
There is still time to enter the Poppy Stamps Challenge Cute Critters for the month of April. I created this cute Country Barn Easel card with my favorite Poppy Stamps Critter, the Whittle Pig.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite farm animal?
A: Me? I love horses but this pig is just the cutest

Final_1I used kraft paper for the base of my barn card easel to give it that rustic farm look and finished the inside with the "Enjoy Your Day" sentiment from the Poppy Stamps Birthday Blowout Stamp Set.






Vintage Spring Mini Junk Journal Card
by Rachel Duong


Hi there, it's Rachel. I can't tell you how thrilled I was to see the latest Poppystamps release and the "Basic Junk Journal Set" --so many ideas swirled in my mind! A junk journal is definitely a must, for now I created a unique "thank you" card with a delightful vintage vibe.


Before we get started, these are the fantastic Poppystamps dies and embellishments I used to create this card.

I began by collecting scraps of cream and off-white card stock. To create the cover, I die cut the file-shaped die. Next I blended distress and oxide inks in teals, pinks and browns. I misted the inks with a light spray of water. Then I stamped "You Make the World Bettter" sentiment from the "Say It Big" set. What a great sentiment! I misted it again and then added lots of fun Poppystamps embellishments, a torn strip on the left, embroidery thread and a Fairy Jewel.

The mini envelope and fan shaped shell are cut using the "Basic Junk Journal Set".  The heart is from the "Heart Jumble" die, sprinkled with silver foil from a hot foil scrap. The butterfly and teardrop embellishments are from the "Teardrop Butterflies".

When you open the card, there is a pocket. I cut a card die from the set and it fits perfectly in the pocket. Perhaps the best part is that most gift cards do too! Also, the pocket can be folded to be used on either side of the file.

To decorate the card,  I tore the surface creating a tattered, old appearance.  I ink blended same colors over it to accentuate the torn areas. 


The sentiment "Thanks for being kind" is from the Poppystamps "Modest Banner Greetings Hot Foil Plate"...another great sentiment. The foil adds a special touch to go with the silver hearts throughout the project.


Behind the card, I added subtle interest with ink splatters, running a brush lightly down the surface. 


More pieces on the pocket included in the "Basic Junk Journal Set". Wow, so much goodness is packed in this set! The Fairy Jewels are pretty too.


So now the card gets tucked back in the pocket, but before that, don't forget to write a sweet message in it! 


On to the next side...These beautiful tulips are from the Poppystamps "Layered Tulips" dies. Ink blended with same colors, they are the focal point of the card. I just love them!  Using leftover hot foil leftover pieces, I die cut the stems. The pocket holding the flowers are from the "Basic Junk Journal Set."  I adhered the tulips to a card die cut for added thickness and reinforcement. 


And now for the back.... it gets decorated too! Ink blending, splatters, mists of water, embellishments and so much fun!

I am intrigued and obsessed with the notion of junk journals. Next time I am going to create pages so I can decorate even more.  I hope you love this unique card as much as I do. Please take a look at the Poppystamps latest release. It does not disappoint!

Until next post, one person's junk is another person's treasure. Have a great day!

Christmas Greetings to all!  Do you need a fun last minute holiday card? I have a shaker for you today.


The new Stacked Joy die cuts all 3 letters of the word Joy together. I die cut once in gold and 5 times in black. Be sure and keep the center of the letter 'O'. You won't need the black.


I used the top gold die cut and glued it to clear card stock before fussy cutting around each letter. 


The finished shaker is filled with tiny sequins, and the gold with the clear cardstock is glued over the frame.


I hope you enjoyed today's simpler card. I think any shaker is a joy for the recipient, don't you? Have a great holiday week!
