Welcome Christmas!.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, As Christmas is so near! think this will be my last 2018  Poppystamp creation..


Love the pop of black with white embossed stamping on this  "Deco Cecil Frame" card! my first time trying these colours together.


What is needed to stamp onto black card, make sure you use rub an antistatic bag or talc on your card before stamping! help`s  with the white particular`s from white embossing powder.


 Cut out with Poppystamp dies  Deco Cecil Frame.



Gold mirri frame.


1" wide red card strip die cut as shown ..using Poppystamps "Tailored Stitches".


I have used card pieces from my bit box, to cut foliage.


Card size..7"x 5" ..I have used gold mirri and white card as matts.. Rather than cut longer border strips !..adhered gold ribbon with strong double sided tape front and back, the cut in half, your topper will hide this. adhere as shown, place a couple of foam pads in the centre.


Topper has been mattered onto white card and foam pads added bottom and top.


Moulded flowers "Stitched Bloom Trio" layered up as shown, pearl for the centres. fill in with Greenery Bundle & Berry Sprig..tiny circles are from Greenery Bundle, random pearls to finish.

Wishing you all A Very Happy Christmas xx

Deco Tree Frame Tag Card..
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today,  Christmas Holiday is fast approaching!  how you doing with your card making, I still need so many cards for family and friends.


I have used Poppystamp dies "Deco  Tree Frame die"  with "Double Stitched Tag Frames" as the focal point on this Christmas card, decided on traditional Xmas colours.


Use both the largest and next size down together to cut these tag shapes. Make sure you tape them together well! if they slip you`ll damage your dies.


Cut the "Deco Tree Frame" in green and white card.


Thin strong sticky tape, across  the top bar, to adhere metallic thread, I also put strong tape onto reverse of the trees, to hold the thread.


Next..I adhered to a white tag as shown, with  the green outer border tag.


Make sure to hold your thread in place with strong sticky tape.


Two decorated trees, topper ready for the card.


I have placed the topper onto the larger outer frame, ran a gold pen around the outer edge.


Foliage made with Poppystamp dies. "Poinsettia Mini" & "Greenery Bundle" cinnamon stick..I have splattered watered down white acrylic paint.


Poppystamp "Art Deco Frames and Phrases die set" for the sentiment. Birchpress designs random scattered Sequins "Not So Heavy Metal"

by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, Pam here today with a quick monochrome Christmas card.


Love how these New Holiday release from Poppystamps work together, you can create many cards using the same dies.

All you need is Black & White card, gold ink or similar  for the rays and  glitter glue to create this card how easy is that!..


Cut one in Black & White from the "Nativity Scene Sidekick Frame and Stencil".


Same with "Simple Bethlehem"


Adhere on the reverse the pieces that come out of the die cut.


Use the matching stencil you get with the Nativity Scene to create gold rays.


Adhere the black "Simple Bethlehem" silhouette, then using Poppystamps "Christmas Time" clear stamps  in black ink I used the lovely sentiment as shown.


Close up of the finished topper 5.1/4"x 6"..


Topper mattered onto White/Black card ..white mat I ran a gold pen along the edge.

Card size 8"x 6" ..but you can make yours smaller if you wish.

This is the out come, I have only used white card, but  the possibilities are endless, wish I`d have used glitter card now! how pretty it would have looked.


I have cut 4 snowflakes..score and fold each one in half.


Adhere 3 together with wet glue (pva) ..using invisible thread, to hang your ornament, place in the middle, I used it double..next adhere the last remaining snowflake, this forms the complete ornament.

  as shown

I next used some seed beads with a hole through the centre.


Did the same on the bottom thread.


Cheap pretty Christmas Tree Ornament..

I have used Poppystamp die "Mountain Hills Plate" I have cut in white card only twice..

Adhered in place as shown.


these two cuts I will layer both with foam tape, I want to add depth ..The top section I have cut these decorative holes, using Poppystamp "Bubble Spiral" die.


This is the section they will be adhered into.


In place, ready to decorate.
