by Sphoorti

IMG_5436

Hello Poppy Peeps!


It's Sphoorti with a gentle reminder of this month's challenge - PSC#112 - Sparkling New Year! This month we're looking for some SPARKLE! We hope that gets you thinking of fireworks, a little confetti, or maybe some bubbly! Even if you're ringing in the new year comfy cozy at home, and watching the snow fall and sparkle in the sun, we want you to capture the magic. Just add some glitter, gems or foil to your design so we can watch you shine this year!  

 

Projects can be for any occasion, and you're not limited to making cards. We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between! It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project! You must use a Poppystamps product to be eligible to win.

 

This was my take on the challenge, and such a quick and easy one - it's another that you can totally mass produce this for the holidays! It's actually even faster than the one I had in my previous challenge post, check it out here!

Hope you like it!

 

Did you know you can use dies to hot foil? I absolutely love the design of the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die and thought I'd try to see how it would look hot foiled. It turned out even better than I'd imagined! I've said it before, and I'll say it again - this die is SO beautiful!

Using some silver mirror cardstock from the FP1003 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6 pack, I die cut a strip to adhere a sentiment on. I took a piece of vellum and adhered it to the back of the strip and foam mounted it for some dimension.

Then I used the CB513 Christmas Banners clear stamp and die set to emboss the Happy New Year sentiment and die cut it. I adhered the sentiment to the foiled band and adhered it towards the bottom of the card.

And actually, that was it! So easy-peasy!

 

I actually have a bonus card for you too! It came together even quicker than the one above! For this one, I hot foiled the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die plate the same way, but for the sentiment, I used the die cuts from the and old JOY sentiment die that is no longer available, unfortunately. But the Snowflake Plate still is, so be sure to get one before it's gone! 

 

 

Now it's your turn to take on the Sparkling New Year challenge! Need a little more motivation? How about a prize? The winner of this challenge (chosen at random) will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store! Remember - projects can be for any occasion, and you're not limited to making cards. We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between! It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project!

 

 

Have a great rest of your week, and good luck!

A Clean and Simple, Quick and Easy, Die-Cuts Only Card
by Sphoorti

BDFED99E-CD21-4E18-8534-4C2FE0307989

 

Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

It's Sphoorti, and I have a very clean and very simple, quick and easy card for you today - all made with just die cuts, and no stamping whatsoever!

 

5F98EB27-CCEF-4236-AA25-061508CF7ABD

 

I started off by cutting a plain white card stock using the 2588 Nordic Flourish Background Craft Die. I took some perfect pearls in the gold and perfect pearl color and made a solution out of them with water and sprinkled it all over the panel for some extra shimmer.

I took one of the glitter papers from the GP1006 Festive Glitter Pad and cut it to 4.25 x 5.5". I glued the Nordic Flourish Background die cut to the glitter card stock.

I had a leftover from my foiling spree last year from the PSF804 You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Dies. I used the Thinking of You one. I used distress inks to ink blend over the sentiment in blue. The colors I chose did not quite match the glitter paper color, but I still liked it. What do you think?

I guess I wasn't happy with the amount of glitter, so I decided to add additional sparkle using clear jewels, but you can't really see them. Either way, that was it!

Final (4)Hi Crafty Friends,
I love the Poppy Stamps Nordic Foxes. They don't have to just be used for Christmas and Winter cards. I'm showing you an autumn version using the Poinsettia Garland 6x6 Paper Pack pattern papers with gold accents.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you have foxes in the wild where you live?
A: Me? Yes, they come from the forest preserve near my house

Woodland Wonder Challenge Reminder
by Birgit Norton

Poppystamps Challenge5

Hello Poppystamps friends!  I'm here today to remind you about our current challenge, with the theme "Woodland Wonder".  I've paired the old with the new this month, to show you how Poppystamps dies coordinate so well together.  

Poppystamps Challenge8

I started by cutting the Nordic Foxes out of white and terra cotta colored cardstock.  I darkened some of the detailed terra cotta pieces by coloring them using Copic markers.  I assembled the fox and mounted it to the center of an A2 sized cream colored card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Fun below the fox.

Poppystamps Challenge7

I cut two of the Adriana Tall Curve Border pieces out of white cardstock and colored the leaves, stems and berries using Copic Markers.  I added white gel pen details to the berries and glued them to both side edges of the card, finishing my design.
