Hi and welcome to a post featuring the new paper packs from Memory Box together with Poppy's new holiday dies.

Have you visited the shop lately? So many new stamps & dies, and one of them, Christmas Quotes, comes with 4 matching dies. The die shapes fit well with one of the papers included in Dashing Holiday Paper Pack, that can be used for sentiments.

I've combined one of the packs' plaids with Shimmering cardstock, and a die cut of Stained Glass Snowflake, also cut from some glitter cardstock.

All the glittery accents add such a festive feel to holiday cards!

Hope you're inspired to take a look around the shops, both Poppystamps and Memory Box. So many fun new products to make your crafting shine for the holidays!

Christmas Lantern
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0002

Hello! Nancy here, and I have a Christmas card for you today. Poppystamps has some gorgeous new holiday dies in the store, and I thought I'd bring you some inspiration with one or 2 of them.

DSC_0005_wm

Simple Lantern Oval is one of the new craft dies, and I paired it with another newbie, a sentiment die called, Snowy Merry Christmas.

Here's a shot of what I did... I knew I wanted to use some of the new Memory Box designer papers with the gold running through, and chose this black and white plaid. Then I die cut the lantern die 4 times, once with black glitter paper, and 3 times with plain black cardstock. I traced one of the ovals on white and cut it out by hand.

The white oval was given a glow with some Squeezed Lemon Oxide Ink before gluing the lantern layers together, with the glitter on top. Kinda looks like the lantern is all 'aglow'. I cut the 'merry Christmas' sentiment 3 times from glitter card stock and carefully cut the white snow off the merry, before adding it to the top of the black layer.

I love how the red shadow gives it a nice pop of color!

Speaking of pop, you can see how all those layers gives dimension to the card.

It's September folks, time to get a move on those holiday cards! Check out all the new dies, stamps and cardstock in the Poppystamps store. Have a great week!

Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0133

Poppy Peeps, the year is closing fast, and the holidays are right around the corner... time for holiday card making! Poppystamps has a new die set called Winter Porch Pop Up Easel, and I have a little inspiration today you might find interesting. Have you ever made an easel card?

DSC_0134_wm

It's super simple with the right dies, and Poppystamps has 'em!

The front of an easel card rests on a piece on the inside, and best of all, it fits into an A2 sized envelope.

DSC_0128

First I die cut all the pieces. You'll notice I tripled the windows and door, and doubled the triangle eve wanting extra dimension for those pieces.

All 7 pieces are included in the set. 

DSC_0135_wm

Once put together, the fun begins! Time to dress up the front! Snowy eaves, a glitter tree, and holiday wreath. Hard to miss that this is a happy holiday greeting card!

The Front of the easel tilts open and back, resting on a piece I Created from Birch Press Nobilia set.

Here's a closeup of the Nobilia medallion, thrice cut and showing the edges of all three die cuts. Looks like a holiday front porch mat, doesn't it?

DSC_0140

The inside of the card is dressed up too, with a greeting from another new set just released, Holly Merry Christmas. All the deets on product used will be listed below. 

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, and stay safe. Indoors crafting is a great way to escape the summer heat!

Dancing Leaves
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0018

Are you about done with summer? Looking forward to Autumn? Cooler weather, changing of the leaves, and hopefully closer to a Covid vaccine... 

DSC_0015_wm

I'm showing a new die from Poppy, in the shop now, and so sweet I just had to share!

It's called, Maple Symphony, and here's a look at how I used it to create my Autumn greeting card.

DSC_0010

When you die cut the panel, the leaves are easily separated. I used my oxide inks to color them. 

DSC_0014

I added drops of ink and white paint. I even think just leaving the solid color behind the leaves is gorgeous. I just love how oxide ink colors blend together, so I played a bit with colors.

DSC_0025_wm

The sentiment is versamarked onto a Heat Resistant Acetate, as I wanted to see the leaves behind the words.

Is it blazing hot where you live? We routinely have 100+ in my valley, great for ripening fruit, but not for keeping a garden alive! Hope you found some 'cool' inspiration today. The  Maple Symphony die is available in Poppy's store now (together with some new Christmas dies). I'm sure a release/giveaway is around the corner!

Stay well and safe my friends! Hugs!

Watering Can Hello
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0064

Hello! How about a super, summery, simple post today? Using a few dies, and a card panel I had in my stash, this card came together in a jiffy.

DSC_0051

I like to get my die cut elements all set, and play with arrangements.

DSC_0067 2_wm

The new Flora blooms are sure to brighten anyone's day!

DSC_0065

The watering can is popped up, and my hello sentiment was cut from both white and dark green, creating a shadow effect. 

Are you having a crafty week? Try making an all die cut card. Quick, easy, and packs an impact! Stay well my friends!

Cottage Meadow Birthday Card
By Nancy Penir

DSC_0049

Hi! I have a card today made with some of the new Memory Box designer papers. This paper pack is called, Cottage Meadow, and is full of colorful, floral, double sided papers. I love it all! For my card I chose a print with white posies on an orange background. Here's how I made my card.

DSC_0033

I always need birthday cards, and decided on a shaker. The die set, Echo Blossoms, cuts 8 different sizes of the flower shape. I used the largest for my shaker.

DSC_0034

You've probably done this dozens of times, but I thought I'd show it anyway, just in case you're new to making a shaker. On the back side of the die cut, with the acetate in place, the foam tape is scored and placed around each petal, close to the opening. Takes a bit of time, but in this covid season, I seem to have plenty of time. My shaker elements are chosen for color and shape, and placed in the middle of the base card.

DSC_0036

I created a frame for the window by using the 2 largest blooms and taping them together before running through the machine.

DSC_0041_wm

Add a few die cuts and sequins to the front, and a sentiment, and my square card is done! I like to make my own envelopes for a square card (behind the card).

DSC_0047

Hope you were inspired to use your printed papers for your next project. They come in handy when you need a quick card! Have a wonderful, and safe weekend!
