Helping me keep it magical this month is one of my very favorite designers, Michele Ferguson, from the blog I Card Everyone. You can find her crafting right here https://icardeveryone.blogspot.com 

Both Michele and I LOVE Halloween, so it was my pleasure to invite her to partner up for this spooky challenge! I LOVE Michele's pretty, layered CAS style, and was super excited to see what she would create. Michele even surprised us with TWO amazing designs featuring Poppystamps products. Take a look!

Michele's first card uses a few Poppystamps favorites: Scary Ghost, Surprise Skeleton, and Boo Outline!

Partner with Poppystamps Thank Boo very much

For her Thank BOO card, Michele used Twisted Tree Oval, Surprise Skeleton, Boo Outline, and Simple Thank You! I love the deep blue and the bright yellow - -a surprising and trendy Halloween color combination!

I also used deep blue and jewel tone yellows, oranges, and greens to create the background panel for my own card. I squirted a few drops of alcohol ink and blew them all around using my brand new giant squishy rubber ball air blower. FUN! I could make these colorful YUPO paper cards all day long! I used images from Whittle Ghosts, Snowman and Trees from our newest release, and Boo Outline. A few Fairy Jewels in shades of green, navy and turquoise ad that magical sparkle at the end!

Now it's your turn to enter the Poppystamps challenge! We'd love to see what you'll create! Thank you so much to one of my creative muses, Michele Ferguson, from I Card Everyone!

Leave a Little Sparkle

IMG_2841-wm

Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing a sparkling, shiny card featuring a flamboyance of flamingoes! When I saw that darling sentiment from the Whittle Everyday clear stamp set, I knew it would be perfect for the little Whittle Flamingoes! They are just so pretty, wading through the water, leaving a trail of glitter and sparkle wherever they go! Take a look!

IMG_2838-wm

 

I used shiny glitter paper to create this slimline card, using the Leafy Vines Slim Plate, and adding a few flamingoes and glittery trees to create a vibrant Florida scene.

IMG_2831-wm

I cut all of my flamingoes, palm trees, and waves out of glitter paper, then assembled it all together.

IMG_2833-wm

I adhered my glittery waves first, and then took a look at my leafy vines. I decided to trim some of them down just a little bit to make the flamingoes and trees stand out a little more.

IMG_2835-wm

I added the flamingoes and trees, and the stamped sentiment, embellished with a few sparkly Fairy Jewels from Memory Box Open Studio. Just like the sentiment reads, you have got to spread that sparkle wherever you go!

IMG_2839-wm

This sparkly slimline will brighten anyone's day! It has FLAMINGOES! 

Thank you so much for joining us today!

August Challenge Anything Goes
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3088-wm

Hello Friends!

The Dog Days of Summer are here, and pups of all sizes couldn't be happier! From melting popsicles on the ground to sprinklers in the grass, every dog has its day on a dog day afternoon! Let's celebrate our four-legged friends with a bright and sunny card for our Poppystamps August Challenge, Anything Goes! Are you playing along?

115929834_2984612221765119_5660356430876503853_n

Our challenges are easy to enter. All you have to do is create a card or project that features at least one Poppystamps product, link it up on our Challenge page, and you might be randomly selected for some sweet summer prizes!

IMG_3085-wm

This cheery card was so much fun to make! I started with a bright blue card base background, and cut the Whittle Sunshine, Whittle Dog, Whittle Popsicle, and Whittle Clouds. Then I cut the phrase DOG DAYS in rainbow colors and again in white to create a little bright contrast. The Marzipan Alphabet is my new favorite, making fun casual letters for any occasion.

IMG_3078-wm

Once all the pieces were cut, I stamped the phrase IT'S ALL GOOD from the Clear Stamp Set, Marzipan Greetings. I centered it onto a cut from Word Balloons, and captured this doggie's thoughts at his new found treasure!

IMG_3080-wm

I took a foam pop circle, cut it in half, and placed them both on my Word Balloon cut. I also used a tiny end from the red Whittle Cloud I cut and added it to the end of the Whittle Popsicle, to make it look like it had begun to melt. 

IMG_3082-wm

Then I assembled it all together for a bright and breezy summer card, perfect for your pooch-loving pals!

Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you'll create for this month's challenge, Anything Goes! Poppystamps has so much to choose from too, from our Whittles collection to our newest art deco borders and frames. What inspires you?

Sunny Hugs
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3075-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am sending bright and sunny hugs with one of our brand new, beautiful Deco Plates, Arched Deco Plate! The tiny curved arches remind me of little sun rises at the start of each new day. Take a look!

IMG_3072-wm

I chose fresh, bright colors to create a detailed paper piecing card with a warm message, HUGS, cut from the Marzipan Alphabet.

IMG_3065-wm

I started by cutting the Arched Deco Plate in crisp white, the adhered it to a fresh blue background and mounted it to my card base. Then I cut the Arched Deco Plate again in yellow, and carefully added each piece in it's correct location with craft scissors and a bit of glue.

IMG_3068-wm

Once the yellow pieces were in place, I cut the Arched Deco Plate in vibrant green, and added the little pieces once again. There are so many natural elements these shapes remind me of, like the sun, trees, or a tiny ocean scene. Maybe these shapes remind you of soft, pleasing symmetrical pattern, or an Egyptian motif popular during the Art Deco period. Either way, this panel makes a beautiful background to a detailed card.

IMG_3070-wm

Once all the paper pieces were in place, I cut the word HUGS from the Marzipan Alphabet in bright pink and grey, and added them to the card. A few blooms from the Fern and Daisy Pop-Up Easel Set and this card is ready to slide into an envelope for a favorite sentimental friend.

IMG_3073-wm

Thanks so much for joining us today and taking a look! There's always something new and pretty happening here at Poppystamps every day! Come back for more!
