Diamond Sentiments
by Sue McRae


Happy Tuesday! Have you seen the new spring release for Poppystamps yet? If you haven’t stop by the store here to check it out!


I’m using the new Diamond Sentiments stamp and die set for this quick and simple card. I took the leafy frame image and white heat embossed it on vellum. After I die cut it I used a white pencil crayon to add shading to some of the leaves on the back side of the vellum.


There are so many wonderful sentiments in this stamp set and I gold heat embossed one of them in the centre of the diamond frame. The great thing about this leafy frame is that you can use it horizontally or vertically on your projects and the sentiments can fit either way as well.


The plaid paper I used on my card base is from the new Madras Plaid Coral & Green Paper Pack. I’m absolutely smitten with the colours and patterns in this pad and the companion pad Madras Plaid Blue & Violet. I really like how you can see the plaid colours and design through the vellum focal piece.


I added a bit of sparkle with the Happy Birthday sentiment die cut from the new Graceful Garden Glitter Paper Pad and finished off with a few gold gems.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and have a great week!

Shake it up, Valentine
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome to my post! Nancy here, and the craft room table is filled with hearts! A sign of the season of love, for sure! And who doesn't need some love right now?

Hearts and flowers... what says, 'I love you' better? And the Poppystamps shop is full hearts!


I gathered my goodies, knowing my card was to be a shaker. 


The shaker heart is filled with valentine sequins and hearts from my stash, and fit perfectly over the pattern paper from Memory Box. Products will be listed below, and will take you to the shops for purchase.


You can see how I popped up the Curve Background die cuts, the height of the the heart shaker.


If you need more inspiration for your Valentines, be sure to pop around daily for the Poppystamps posts. And have a wonderful, crafty week!

Hi there crafty friends! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday. Today I am coming on the blog to share another holiday card.  Yes, I know Christmas has past, but some of you may still be looking to send out your 2020 holiday cards, so here is another sample of quick and easy cards you can send out to family friends. 

Today's card is using the Festive Noel die along with the Christmas Quotes stamp and die set.


To get started, I first die cut my background panel from a sheet of 6x6 patterned paper from the Memory Box Garland paper pad using the double stitched rectangle frame die. Next I adhered both the frame and the rectangle patterned pieces together to my green cardstock card base with some tape runner adhesive.  

Then I die cut the Noel sentiment  twice from the Festive Noel die. I  die cut the sentiment and frame cnce from a scrap piece of gold foil cardstock, then again from a scrap piece of red glitter cardstock. Next I paper pieced the glittered letters of Noel into the gold foiled framed sentiment using some clear tape to on the back of the sentiment to hold both the frame and die cut letters together. I attached the combined foiled and glittered sentiment to the center of my card with some foam tape. 


Next I stamp the coordinating sentiment "Christmas is in the air" onto a strip of black cardstock with some Versamark ink. I then sprinkled fine detailed white embossing powder from Hero Arts and heat set the sentiment with my heat gun. Then I die cut the sentiment strip with the coordinating banner die using my Gemini Junior die cutting machine. Lastly I adhered the sentiment strip to the card with some foam tape. 


And there you have it! Another clean and simple, yet elegant christmas card the comes together in minutes. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. Until next time.... happy crafting!

Merry Christmas
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends, Candice here on the blog to share with you a quick and easy Christmas card that can easily be mass produced. Today's card features the Snowy Merry Christmas die and the Garland pattern paper from Memory Box. 

With just 4 more days till Christmas, if you're needing a quick and easy card to make and get into the mail or to accompany a handmade gift; today's card share is the perfect project for you. To get started, you will need to cut the Poppystamps Snowy Merry Christmas die once from green cardstock and twice from red cardstock. If you want even more dimension, you can cut the sentiment from the red cardstock three times instead of twice.


Next adhere the red sentiment pieces together one on top of each other with some liquid adhesive. Then with the green sentiment, adhere this piece onto the red sentiment slightly ajar so that you create a red shadow background to the sentiment. With a snow marker add the liquid snow to the top of the "Merry" portion of the sentiment then use you heat gun to make the white liquid puff up to a snowy dimension. 


With your Double Stitch Rectangle Frame die, cut a sheet of pattern paper from the Garland 6x6 Paper pad to use as your background for the card. Then adhere the patterned paper and coordinating frame together onto your cardbase with some liquid adhesive. 

Next cut a strip of red glitter cardstock to 4.25 x 2.25 and adhere it to the center of the patterned paper. Then cut a strip of gold cardstock to 4.25 x 2 and adhere the glitter cardstock with liquid adhesive. Then finally cut a piece of cream cardstock to 4.25 x 1.75 and adhere this piece on top of the gold cardstock with liquid adhesive. Trim off any excess cardstock from the edges of the card. 


This card is absolutely stunning and has a ton of dimension. You will enjoy creating this quick and easy card for your friends and family. I hope you have enjoyed today's quick card share and found inspiration. Until next time.... happy crafting.

Challenge Reminder - Anything BUT a card
by Candice Crawford


Hello Friends! It is Candice here today to remind you about our monthly challenge. This month the challenge is to create Anything But a card. Next to making cards, my next favorite project to make are gift tags.  For this month's challenge I am sharing with you a Christmas tag that is clean and simple and easy to mass produce. I hope you get a chance to join us in the challenge as you might just be the lucky winner! 


Want to play? 

The rules are simple - just create a project following this month's theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!

To create this tag, I started by die cutting the Double Stitch Tag Frame base from a sheet of 6x6 pattern paper from the Christmas Plaid paper pad.  This die cuts out both a tag and a frame. I simply paper piece the tag and coordinating frame back together as one piece on to a sheet of white cardstock and fussy cut the tag and punch a hole in the center with a handle held hole punch. 


Next I cut the Stained Glass Snowflake Background from a piece of Red Glitter Cardstock and the coordinating Stained Glass Snowflake from a piece of Gold Metalic Paper. I then adhered the Framed snowflake on top of the glittered snowflake piece. These two dies can be used both separately and together to create stunning snowflake images for your holiday projects. 


Next I stamped the Merry and Bright Sentiment from the new Christmas Quotes stamp set with Versamark ink onto a scrap piece of black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and my heat gun. I die cut the sentiment strip with the coordinating die that comes along with the stamp set. 


To assemble the tag, I adhered the layered snowflake onto the tag base with some foam tape. Then added the sentiment strip on top of the layered snowflake also with some foam tape. To finish the tag I added some red satin ribbon to the top of the tag with a piece of black and white bakers twine. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. 

Now it's your turn!  Need a little more motivation? How about a prize?  The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!

You have until 12 am US EST on December 27 to link up your design here!  We'll start a new challenge and announce the winners on January 1.   

Thanks for joining us!  We can't wait to see what you make!
