You Are Wonderful:

Hello everyone, today I made a card with Memory Box "Peony Garden" clear stamps.

This is a beautiful Floral Image, there is a matching die in the set, I wanted a flat image.


I have used Distress Oxide Ink "speckled egg" to stamp onto white card, clear embossing powder, I wanted a tone on tone colour.



I have trimmed this white card and painted using Distress oxide Speckled Egg & Ground Espresso, using water and ink on a glass matt, paint brush.




I used same ink on these beautiful Poppystamps "Intricate Cut Butterflies" layered up for dimension. Sentiment is from the stamp set...finished with white seam binding bow and clear dewdrops.

Finished card size 6 inches x 8 inches matts of egg blue and brown onto white card base.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Halloween Ingredients
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends,  Candice here with another Halloween card. Halloween is tomorrow so I wish all of you a Happy and safe Halloween. To create this card I began by ink smooshing distress oxide inks colors onto a piece of white water color cardstock. I used the Distress ink colors of Candied Apple, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet.


Next I stamped the bottle images from the Halloween Ingredients stamp and die set onto the smooshed distress ink colors with some Stazon Black ink. Then I die cut each of the bottle images with the coordinating dies. 


Next I stamped the Ghosts, Goblins and Witches labels with Stazon Black ink into the coordinating tag outline stamp and die cut each of the images with the tag die from the stamp set. To add a bit of interest to the card I added a few stamped spiders and fussy cut each one out with my scissors and adhered them to the card with liquid adhesive. 


Lastly I stamped the sentiment a Halloween Hello from the Halloween Fun stamp set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I hope you've enjoyed card share and found inspiration. Happy Halloween everyone. Until next time.....Happy Crafting.

Boo Y'all
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends,  Candice here with a Halloween card using several dies from the the latest Poppystamps release.              To create the cute halloween scene, I began with die cutting a cloud stencil border from some white cardstock and using the whittle cloud border die cut to sponge the cloud image onto my card front using Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink.


Next I die cut the spooky tree image and the grass border from some black cardstock. I sniped the circle frame from the tree image with my scissors so that the tree could stand alone as on image. 

Next, I die cut three pumpkins from the pile of pumpkin die set. Then I cut the wavy long picket fence and the squeaker ghosts from white cardstock. I attached the fence and grass to my inked background with liquid adhesive and popped up two of the pumpkins, the tree and ghost images with 3M foam tape. 


I then stamped the Boo Y'all sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set in Versafine Onyx black ink. Then lastly, added the stitched rectangle trimmings frame cut from white cardstock onto my card. 


I absolutely love how this card came out. It's nice how all of the dies pair well together to create a cute and spooky halloween scene. Thank you all for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed the card project and found inspiration. 

Until next time, happy crafting!

Pile of Pumpkins
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing an autumn card using the new Pile of Pumpkins die set from the Poppystamps new release.  Today's card is another one of my clean and simple designs. I paired the pumpkins with the adorable Country Garden Wheelbarrow dies to create the perfect autumn scene. 


The background of the card is made using my Distress Oxide Inks in Mustard Seed, Abandon Coral and Walnut Stain. These blend of colors make the perfect autumn sunset for a great fall theme card. 


The sentiment comes from the the Pumpkin Patch stamp set and pairs perfectly with the Pile of Pumpkins dies. I stamp the sentiment in clear Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder from Ranger. 


This card comes together rather quickly and can easily be massed produced. Whip up a few Fall cards in now time and be ready to send grateful blessings to your family and friends this Fall season. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. Until next time... Happy Crafting.

By Pam Simpson

Hello Everyone,  I wanted the main focal point on this card to be  "Merry Christmas" sentiment from poppystamp,  I have used the Poppystamps "Lamplight Pathway as a background for this die.



I cut in white card Lamplight Pathway, using low tack tape, roughly taped where I wanted the light to shin.


Using a brush I inked the background with Distress Oxide ink."faded Jeans", for a night sky.


I sprayed using water and left to dry.


To create a frame, I have used  2 largest Memory Box "Wrapped Stitched Rectangles"


Disregard the center, I only used the outer frame, I also inked the edges.


Background nearly finished, just to add some Aleens Glitter Snow..this is a paste I use.


For the "Merry Christmas" I have used Memory Box 6x6 papers pads..Glitter Pages Red..Frosted Glitter Black.. cut the read first and double sided sticky tape to hold the Merry in place,  I cut away the black Christmas, then adhered to the red Merry ..black to create an outline. The frame has 3 D foam tape, adhered to a slight bigger mat of black card .


Decorated with Snowflakes, these I cut apart from "Snowflake Tall Curve Border. clear droplets gems. Peace, Love And ..old Poppystamps  "Tidings Of Joy" clear stamps.. This card is flat for shipping/posting ..Finished card 5.1/2 inches x 6.1/2 inches ..

Stenciling with Embossing Paste
by Nancy Penir


Greetings Poppy Peeps! Have you seen all the new stencils in the Poppystamps store? I'm here to show you a favorite way to use stencils. Maybe new to you, maybe a refresher. Hope it inspires you to use your stencils more. 


Poppystamps Leafy Jumble Stencil is a fun all over leaf pattern. I did 3 panels with this stencil using metallic silver embossing paste. 


I chose this panel and made 2 cards. First covering the card with Distress Inks, then laying down the stencil and sweeping on the paste with a craft knife. Now comes the hard part... waiting for it to dry! 


I picked the spot which showed the most overall blend of color and cut my circle. 


2 cards with one panel, this one will be a standard A2 card.


The circle was used inside this 5 x 5 square card.


All product will be listed below. Because this is a square, I love to create my own envelopes to go with it.


So easy with a 1 2 3 Punchboard. And a great way to use up extra 2 sided paper from your stash! If you're like me, that stash is endless!


My A2 shaker card all set to send hugs to someone special.


And 2 hugs cards with one panel!

Hope you take a good long look at the stencils available now in the Poppystamps shop. And hope you were inspired to try a little paste with them! So many fun ways to enjoy crafting, aren't there? Have a great week!
