A Little Night Joy
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Poppystamps Friends!

I'm so glad you are joining us today for a little bit of night joy! Today I am sharing a fun and easy breezy winter card that celebrates the joy of a nighttime snowfall, where the icy pines glisten and the snow sprinkles down like fine glitter. Take a look.


I started with a dark blue/black background, and added a couple of Iced Pine Trees in green and white. These little trees are so easy to make too! I could create an entire forest!



Once the trees were cut, and the layers of snow added, I then cut the Joy Freestyle Script in crisp white and bright pink. I like the clean and elegant look. Add a few sparkly Fairy Jewels and you have a stylish winter scene.



Thanks so much for joining us today!

Spooky Night
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Poppystamps Friends!

The spooky season is here and we have had so much fun playing with the newest Halloween and Autumn dies from Poppystamps! Today, I am sharing a bright mixed media design using the new Cat Collage, Twisted Houses, and Leafy Branch Oval. Take a look!


The very first step I took was to get out my alcohol inks and create a panel with deep blood oranges and vivid yellows, and let that dry for about 3 days! Where I live in Florida, alcohol ink panels can stay sticky for days! When it was finally dry, I cut out the Cat Collage from a black panel, along with the Leafy Branch Oval, Twisted Houses, and Snowman and Trees.



I then cut tiny squares from my YUPO paper alcohol ink panel a little smaller than each twisted House, and glued in to the back. I also cut a circle  a little larger than my Cat Collage moon and glued that to the back of my black card base. I used tiny foam pop dot circles on the backs of each Twisted House, then assembled everything on my card.


That was the fun part! The vivid color of the blended alcohol inks make these little houses and cat perfect for some spooky fun!



I finished the card with a few Fairy Jewels and Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones for a fun finishing touch! Let's get our boos on!

Thanks for joining us today!





Spooky Boo
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

It's the season of spooky boos, and an I have a cute one to share with you today! Take a look!


I started with a white card base and a blue-black background for this sweet little spider to drop by for a friendly little boo. The spider is from our newest die sets, Whittle Creatures, and he is perfect for a fun Halloween scare. I added the Reeded Deco Curve in crisp white, and cut an assortment of leaves and acorns from Fanciful Fall Leaves, Maple Symphony, and Adrianna Square.


A fun fall card needs a few spooky creatures too, so I added a piece from the Jack O Lantern Frame, and the Whittle Mouse! Really, these guys are ALL too cute to spook, right?


Arrange everything all together and you've got a bright and spooky fall scene. I love to create seasonal cards that feature fresh color palettes, like this midnight blue and rich rusts, browns, and golds. It's a little different from the bright pumpkin oranges and purples, but I like it. What new color palettes would you like to experiment with for your own Spooky Boo?

Glamour Ghouls
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Craft Friends and Glamor Ghouls!

Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful card for all of us glamorous Halloween loving folks out there. Check it out!


I used bright, eye-popping colors to create an Autumn design to make you smile. I started with a bright green card base, then cut a pile of colorful leaves from the newly released Fanciful Fall Leaves. I also cut a few leaves from Maple Symphony and Orchard Leaves. I cut the Ragged Daisy out of pale yellow and black and as little nod to the end of the Summer.

The Witches Shoe was the fun part. I cut the show out of shiny black paper, which makes the shoe look like patent black leather. I added the trim and buckle in purple and gold glitter paper, and assembled it all together with a colorful shoe bouquet.


Once the shoe and leaves were assembled, I added the sweet little ghost from Whittle Creatures, and the hat, broom, and cauldron from Whittle Witch. A little bit of BOO for a little tiny shoe! I finished with a few pink, yellow and green Fairy Jewels.


Thank you so much for joining us today!






Pumpkin Spice Night
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

It's the perfect night for a little pumpkin spice with a few Halloween dies from our newest release from Poppystamps! Take a look!


I started with an old favorite, the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Frame and Stencil, and cut two frames in bright green and orange.  I added a dark blue panel behind the green frame, and then carefully cut out all the orange pumpkins and adhered them on top. Then I cut the Jack O Lantern Frame in orange and added a bright yellow panel behind it. I added a few fanciful Fall leaves on the bottom, and these adorable little ghosts from Whittle Creatures. They are just too cute to spook!


I finished the card with a few fairy Jewels in yellow and orange. Sweet and spooky!


There's so many ways you can play with the new dies! I love mixing and matching all these tiny creatures, pumpkins, jack o lanterns, and little leaves to create bright and cheerful autumn scenes. How will YOU be inspired?
