Happy Harvest.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, This card is not something I normally make! Harvest/Fall design. Thought this "Twisted Tree Oval" die, perfect for these card designs.




I cut a 3"  X 6.3/4 inch black card, placed the Twisted tree Oval central and near the top, ran it through my die cutting machine, trimmed as close as I could to the oval, adhered to Memory Box orange paper, used foam pads to give the tree height, matted this onto another black card..


found the center:  and cut straight up to  1.1/2 inch with scissors: next using scissors  cut a diagonal from left and right to create the upside down V..


I cut the Pumpkins in white card, coloured with pens, Orange & Red :green for the storks 


Simple Lantern has been cut from the oval: Poppystamp Pumpkin Patch stamps, for the sentiments, few random falling leaves around the tree, these I have done in black and orange ink, tiny little dots on the white card to take the plainness off.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, Pam here to remind you about our Poppystamps monthly challenge..This months theme Think Pink which also coincides with Breast Cancer Awareness month.




I created this very easy card, using this beautiful background die from Poppystamps "Raining Frame", to frame this I have used Memory Box "Rectangle Basic" ..Memory Box. Spring time Bouquet  Strips & Dots 6x6 paper pad in pink. 
I only wanted a frame to adhere to the Raining Background, I will use the inner die cut on another project! no goo wasting pretty paper.


I stamped this sentiment using Birch Press Design: "Blooming Spring" stamp set..Olive coloured ink. before adding 3d foam tape to the panel. Main card size 5.1/2 inches x 6.1/2 inches. decoration: Whittle Clouds & Orchard Leaves, cut in green card.. made from pink narrow ribbon and dewdrops breast cancer bow.

Hope you`ll play along with us this month, random winner could receive a $20 gift certificate to spend in Poppystamps store.

Happy Pumpkins
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello friends! Marybeth Lopez here today , sharing this group of fun and happy pumpkins from Poppystamps. These Haunting Pumpkins.... just look kinda happy to me and make a great Halloween Card or for someone with a birthday in October, keep the face off and perfect for fall.


This was a simple card to make if you don't make a mistake (haha). Like I did.

The Happy Halloween clear stamp is also from Poppystamps called Halloween Ingredients.


After diecuttig the pumpkins I used  Oxide ink  and my blending brush to blend in the two colors.  Not sure if you can see but I added bit of two sided tape on my glass mat so that the pumpkins would stay in place, when I blended the ink. If I left inside the negative the sides would still be white. 


So, I decided to add a bit of shimmer and blended two colors. When I was all finished with my card I dropped it in the pool of shimmer ink. It was all over the back side. I ended up cutting the back off and trimming down the front of the card then just added it to a new card base. Happy Save :)


For the front of my card I used striped patterned paper from memory box called Garland Stripes and Dots.


Hope you have a happy week and wonderful Halloween .  Have you ever had a happy save?


Take care and God bless!





Christmas Angel
by Marybeth Lopez



Hello and Happy October to you all! Marybeth Lopez  here today sharing this beautiful Poppystamps Angel! I made her a Christmas angel but could be used for anytime of year. This die is called : Stained Glass Angel.


I used, Holiday Glitter Pad from memory box. The picture above captures how much it can glisten in the light.


I had to share a close up of the beautiful patterned paper in this wonderful Christmas Plaid patterned paper pack. Hard to see in my photos but some of the lines are foil.


Here is another shot in the sunlight to show the glistening of this beautiful glitter paper.


I cut the stained glass angel  out a few times and decided on glitter outline and watercolor cardstock ( has a nice cotton look) for the inside all but the Angel  ( she/he in soft gold)

I used softer inside colors so it would compete with the beautiful plaid .


I will be using this beautiful die again for sure! The sentiment is from Poppystamps Christmas Quotes.

Thank you for the visit today .

I hope you all stay happy and well. God bless you all.




"O Holy Night"
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, Christmas is sure getting close now! I love sparkle anytime, but have to have sparkle at Christmas..


Wonderful Glitter on this paper pad from Memory Box..


I have cut Poppystamps "Stained Glass Angel" Gold & Red Glitter.


On the reverse of the gold only! I used double side tape, to keep all the cuts in place.


Adhere the red as shown, disregard the other cuts, using a small off cut of white glitter, cut the Angel .


Adhere the white glitter angel as shown, I think it really makes the Angel pop! with these layers. Leave the wings loose ..adds texture.


From the Glitter pad, 6x6 size. I used Memory Box "Wrapped Stitched Rectangle die" . I will save this cut for a later project, perfect size cut out fro my Angel topper. 


I am using Memory Box Christmas Plaid  paper, just a small matt around the whit glitter, I am gutting the center from this sheet of paper, using for my flowers, so why waste what you cannot see.


Adhere to white card 6x6 add foam tape to cut out, for the topper.


6x6 inch card ready to decorate.


I did add a touch of dark green card, mostly used for the flowers off cuts of glitter card and paper. and a final gingham bow.

Thank you for stopping by, I wonder how many of you like to see how I make these cards! or are you bored to tears with the long post, would love some feed back Pam x

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!
