Mouse warming
by Tina Wilstrup

Warning! These mischievous mice are turning this cozy relaxing by the fireplace into a mouse warming party!
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I die cut all the pieces from white cardstock, except for the stockings that were cut from Memory Box patterned paper. The mice were colored with Copics and the rest were colored with Distress regular and oxide inks.

I marked out where I wanted the fireplace and inked up the background with oxide ink. I extended the color from the fireplace to most of the background.

I popped up the fireplace and as you can see the mice are hanggliding in the Christmas stockings.

To prevent the watchful corgis to chase them away, a couple of mice have tied their tails together.

I hope you like my inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today. Have a hapy crafty day!

Creep It Real
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 10.31

Happy Halloween Everyone! 

To celebrate the holiday, I am showcasing a Halloween card made with the Spellcaster Witch and Magical Cauldron dies that were released in September. I just love the little spooky witch die and how she coordinates with the cauldron to appear as though she is making spooky witches brew! 

10.31.19 Blog Post

The background of today's card was made using my distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed. I used these colors to mimic the popular Pastel Halloween theme that I love so much. I sprinkled some water onto the background piece to create that beautiful oxidation, then dried my cardstock with a piece of paper towel. Next, I die cut the witch, cauldron and frame using some black cardstock from my stash. I also die cut the cauldrom from my inked background piece to emboss the steam from the cauldron onto the paper.

I then adhered the die cut witch and the black cauldron to the colored cardstock piece with some foam tape. Next I used my wink of stella glitter pen on the witch to give the witch a bit of sparkle.

I  then stamped the sentiment, Creep It Real, from the Halloween Fun stamp set onto a piece of white cardstock in black Versafine ink. I created some banner tails on the white cardstock, then adhered the piece onto my card front with some foam tape.

I just love the color combination of this card and how quick and easy it all came together. I hope you enjoyed today's project. Have a great day and Happy Halloween!

Fall blooms
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.571751167561E12

Hi Poppy fans! Today I'm showing you this fall-inspired card loaded with warm, bold colors. It's a walk through a forest this time of year all in a card.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I lightly stamped the Peony Bouquet stamp, and left the stamp in my stamping tool for later use. I then colored it with Copics. After coloring the image, I placed it back in my stamping tool, stamped with embossing ink, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set it.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

For the background I used a panel of watercolor cardstock and ink smooshed matching colors of Distress and Distress oxide inks. I also flicked on some drops of water - yes, water - with a paint brush, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set it.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I then die cut a couple of Christmas greens all from green cardstock.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

With an ink dauber I inked the edges bringing a little life to the greens.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

After fuzzy cutting the bouquet I colored the edge with a dark grey Copic marker to make it stand out more.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I used the same marker to color match my cardstock for the sentiment, which is also gold heat embossed.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I popped up the bouquet and attached the greens under it. Finishing touch was adding red and gold Nuvo drops to all the berries.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope I have inspired you to create your own fall-inspired card. Have a great day!

Challenge Reminder: Enchanted
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0039

Hello and Happy Halloween! I have a challenge reminder for you, one I hope will be enchanting. Our challenge this month has a Halloween theme, but instead of spooky or scary, how about Enchanted?

DSC_0042_wm

The beautiful Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Frame and Stencil was my starting point. I watercolored the whole Frame, pumpkins and leaves with my metallics.

DSC_0022

They go on like watercolors, but the mica in the paint gives a glow to your images.

DSC_0037

The frame and enchanting fairies were glued onto a sponged inked base. Then a bit of Nuvo Glimmer Moonstone added to the fairies. How would you create an enchanting Halloween card? We'd love to see! 

There's a 20.00 gift card for the winner of our challenge, that runs through the 29th. 

Hope you have a great and creative week!

Boo-Yah!
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0017

Hello Poppy Friends! Thought I'd bring you some Halloween inspiration from the new release. Hope you're well on your way with your Halloween cards. This one goes to a special grandson in the Marines. He completed basic training and is currently in the infantry. I'm so proud of this young man, and sending him cards brings me joy, and I hope he gets a big smile from them!

DSC_0016_wm

A shaker is always fun to receive, and is really very easy. Here's how I did this one.

DSC_0020

To create my spooky night sky, I covered my A2 sized card with Oxide Inks.

DSC_0022

I'm sure you all know what happens when water hits the oxide inks. Just be sure to let it dry before the next step.

DSC_0026 2

I used my metallic watercolor paints to flick drops of copper onto the panel.

DSC_0002

I repeated the entire technique with a panel of yellow, orange and pink oxide inks. I die cut Surprise Skeleton 3 times. (Note: the die was cut 3 times before inking and adding droplets. I masked the 3 circles and added my sentiment, first stamped in black, then clear versa mark) The sequin mix will be confined to the 3 windows.

DSC_0009

Surprise Skeleton is just too cute to be scary, don't you think? Hope you have a crafty week ahead, always the best kind!

Halloween / Fall Blog Blitz - Haunt it
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.567696050096E12

Hello Everyone! We are showcasing the halloween/fall release in this Blog Blitz and have I got a fun spooktacular card for you today! You may want to get a warm cuppa and get cozy, because this has lots of details!

Poppy how to

I had this scene in my head and so I planned out where I wanted everything. This finished card is 5x7 inches to fit everything in. I die cut the Magical cauldron, because I wanted the steam parts to show. I placed the cauldron back in, securing it on the back, and also added a tiny piece of gold cardstock behind the holes. I ink blended the panel with Twisted citron, Spiced marmelade, Seedless preserved and Black soot Distress oxide inks. I also diluted a drop of gold acrylic paint with a little water and splattered it over the cauldron.
Poppy how to

I had watched a video of a pull tab technique and decided it could be done without the dies. So I created the pull tab out of black cardstock and cut a narrow strip out of the panel. Make sure you first place your elements and test placement before cutting.
Poppy how to

Pulling the pull tab "arms" through the slot and - again - testing placement, I could mark the pull tab with a pencil to cut off the excess so it wont show on the finished card. Pull the arms back out, cut with your scissors and reposition arms and surprise element. I was placing the Happy Jack O Lantern over the Scary ghost. Since the ghost wasn't quite covered I cut it to size. When placing the Jack o lantern I popped it up with foam squares, making sure they wouldn't be in the way of the ghost going up and down. With a strip of cardstock I secured the pull tab on the back. Also, when adding craft foam to the back I made sure it didn't colide with the pull tab.
Poppy how to

I colored all the die cut elements with Copics, giving them the look of a glow on the one side. This is the Spellcaster witch, how cool is she!
Poppy how to

Here I've used the Friendly cat and the smaller pumpkins are from the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick frame. I also wanted the cat to have a little cauldron-glow and the eyes are made with a gold pen. The sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set is heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Watermark1.567696145084E12

So here's the card showing the surprise ghost. I let the pull tab stick out from the top of card, looking like a tombstone that rises when the ghost appeares. On the top of the tab I wrote PULL with a gold pen.
Watermark1.567726973261E12

And guess what! I couldn't help myself from throwing in a little extra fun, so I heat embossed the ghost with a glow-in-the-dark embossing powder. I think it looks so cool!
Watermark1.567696145084E12

So much fun right?

Holiday Blog Blitz: Hello Autumn
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0047

It's Halloween/Fall Release time at Poppystamps, and I'm showcasing the beautiful Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil. This sidekick frame can give your seasonal cards instant 'oohs and aahs'. It's so easy to add my sentiment to the framed area. And the stencil allows for color placement on the leaves.

DSC_0046_wm

Do you live in a place where the seasons stage a show of color? Time to bring out the sweaters. And to reflect the season on our cards too. Here's what I did to my card.

DSC_0029

I started by inking my watercolor Cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks: Wild Honey, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves.

DSC_0032

Then sprayed the inked panel with water droplets. And then added a coppery spray and white to the inked panel, letting each layer dry before adding the next. If you ink a larger panel you can cut selectively to your A2 sized card. 

DSC_0035

With the same inks I used on the watercolor panel, I carefully applied ink to just the edges of the leaves. Remember to tape down your stencil. It really helps to keep the ink where you want it.

DSC_0043

There are a couple of new Autumn Leaf die sets new this release that I love with the Sidekick frame. I cut them first in vellum then in white cardstock. After die cutting them, I added a bit of Rose Gold Embossing Powder to the edges of the vellum die cuts. I glued only the middle of the leaf to the white die cut base, and bent up the edges as if fluttering in the breeze.

DSC_0051

Autumn is the perfect time to play with our embossing powders and sequins, isn't it? It's time to add the bling! 

DSC_0050
