Reindeer Craft Kit-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna

Thanks for stopping by! Today I'm sharing a super cute card made with the Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit from Poppystamps! 

Reindeer Craft Kit-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU1

There are three kits available in the store and what makes them unique is that they include SEVERAL coordinated dies as well as a mini stamp set all meant to work perfectly together!

To get acquainted with the I dies in the set I chose to mimic the scene on the cover of the packaging!

A simple Distress Oxide Ink background is perfect for these cute images.  I left the bottom area white for a snowy scene.  It also makes a very convenient place to stamp a sentiment! The kit has EIGHT sentiments to choose from so you're sure to find one that's right for you.

I cut all the images from colored cardstock, and added a bit of Distress Ink to them to add some dimension.   Some of the images are adhered flat to the card base and others are popped up with adhesive foam tape.

I decided to add a "sun" with some stacked circles (not included in the kit) but something that most of us probably have on hand!

Halloween Tag Trio-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I love this time of year!  It marks the beginning of fall.. and the start of all the fall and winter holidays!  Halloween is my favorite!  It seemed like the best night of the year when I was a kid because I could dress up, go out after dark and did I mention CANDY? I have a handful of "Special" ghouls that will get a treat bag that always get a little extra dressing. 

Halloween Tag Trio-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-Witch

My tag trio each start out the same.. I inked a panel of white cardstock with Distress Oxide in candy corn colors with a touch of purple for a night sky.  I splattered them with water and some Ph. Martins Bleedproof White to add a little dimension.  Each panel is cut with an oval die and then topped with the Poppystamps Twisted Tree Oval.

Next just add your favorite Poppystamps dies to create scenes.   A simple die cut circle becomes a bright full moon above a scary haunted house from the Twisted Houses set.  Whittle Creatures and the Whittle Pumpkin Witch are also perfectly sized for these scene tags.

Challenge Reminder - Sparkly Boo
by Jeanne Jachna

Boo Poe Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna

Do you love Halloween?  If that's a great big  YES!  Then I hope you checked out the new release dies in the store!  They're absolutely SPOOK-tacular!  And since this month's challenge is Anything Goes I sure hope you'll make whatever you like and play along this month!  Linking up your design automatically enters you into our $20 giveaway!

Boo Poe Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU1

I don't usually make glittery cards because they are so hard to photograph, but I just couldn't resist on this one!  I love the sparkle and it seems absolutely perfect for holiday cards.  Of course the photos don't give this card the attention it deserves.. I really wish you could see it in person!

Boo Poe Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-HT

I started with a white cardstock A2 size card (4.25 x 5.5") and then cut a slightly smaller panel of pinkish purple from the Frosted Glitter Pad.  Next I cut a slightly smaller panel of purple glitter paper from the same pad.  Next I taped the Leafy Branch Oval Die in the center of the panel and die cut it.    This creates an open frame that allows the bottom layer of color to show through. 

Boo Poe Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU3

Next I cut a sparkly "moon" from glitter paper with the Memory Box Circle Basics 1" diameter circle and adhered it inside the oval.  You can also use a circle punch.   Next I cut the frame from black cardstock and inserted it inside the opening.  Due to it's uneven coated texture, glitter paper can be tricky to glue.  I use Ranger Multi Matt Medium in a needle tip bottle and an acrylic stamp to hold things in place as they dry.  

Boo Poe Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU2

I inked some rosy cheeks on a  sweet ghost from the Halloween Assemblage set and adhered it floating among the branches.  A simple Boo Poe Script sentiment is also cut from glitter paper and adhered over the ghost.

Stained Glass Butterfly-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna

Are you playing along with our monthly challenge for July?  It's called "Over the Rainbow".  We want you to join our challenge using rainbow colors, or add a rainbow.  You can always find our current challenge by clicking the "Poppy Challenge" badge on the top right of this page.   Linking  your design to each month's challenge automatically enters you into our giveaway - a $20 gift card to www.poppystamps.com

2022-07 You don't need to have a blog to link up your designs, just copy the url code from your Instagram post, or on line gallery!

Stained Glass Butterfly-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU2

I cut 1/2" strips of colorful cardstock and adhered them together with washi tape end to end to create a rainbow panel.  Next I trimmed the panel to fit the front of my A2 card front and then cut the Stained Glass butterflies from the  panel.   

Stained Glass Butterfly-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU3

Next I adhered gold glitter paper to my card base and then adhered the rainbow die cut panel over it.  I adhered the detailed die cut butterflies cut from white cardstock inside their openings.  You have to be patient when  using liquid adhesive to adhere cardstock to glitter paper.  I weighted the die cuts with an acrylic block and put it aside to create the gold foil sentiment. 

Stained Glass Butterfly-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU1

The Modest Greetings One Hot Foil includes lots of sentiments as well as a die to cut each sentiment into a strip.   There's always gold at the end of the rainbow right?  The finishing touch was a few Clear Fairy Drops.

Stained Glass Butterfly-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-Side
This color block technique is a great way to show off your die cuts and just imagine a shaker behind the die cuts instead of gold foil.   Or how about a white cover and rainbow strips inside the die cut openings?  There's lots of choices that would all be amazing! I sure  hope you find some time to play!
