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!

Christmas Lantern
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0002

Hello! Nancy here, and I have a Christmas card for you today. Poppystamps has some gorgeous new holiday dies in the store, and I thought I'd bring you some inspiration with one or 2 of them.

DSC_0005_wm

Simple Lantern Oval is one of the new craft dies, and I paired it with another newbie, a sentiment die called, Snowy Merry Christmas.

Here's a shot of what I did... I knew I wanted to use some of the new Memory Box designer papers with the gold running through, and chose this black and white plaid. Then I die cut the lantern die 4 times, once with black glitter paper, and 3 times with plain black cardstock. I traced one of the ovals on white and cut it out by hand.

The white oval was given a glow with some Squeezed Lemon Oxide Ink before gluing the lantern layers together, with the glitter on top. Kinda looks like the lantern is all 'aglow'. I cut the 'merry Christmas' sentiment 3 times from glitter card stock and carefully cut the white snow off the merry, before adding it to the top of the black layer.

I love how the red shadow gives it a nice pop of color!

Speaking of pop, you can see how all those layers gives dimension to the card.

It's September folks, time to get a move on those holiday cards! Check out all the new dies, stamps and cardstock in the Poppystamps store. Have a great week!

Brick House Easel Card
by Sue McRae

20200822_115816c

Happy Monday crafters! I’m joining you today with a charming little scene on an easel card.

20200822_115752c

There’s lots of die cutting on this card but it’s easy to put together. The hardest part was choosing the colour scheme.

DSCN0489c

I started by die cutting my easel piece which is from the new Porch Pop Up Easel Set. The die set is meant for a front porch scene but I used only the two dies that create the card base and added other dies from my stash to make my own scene. This makes your easel card design possibilities, endless!

20200822_115309c

For the background of the card front I used some happy yellow patterned paper and added a grass border to the bottom of the panel.

I took the Proper Brick House and die cut it several times from different shades of teal card stock and assembled the house and I added a red door for a pop of bold colour.

20200822_115257c

The trees were die cut 3 times from white card stock and once from green card stock from the new Frosted Glitter Pad. I layered these all together to create thicker trees.

20200822_115526c

I die cut some small flowers from the Floral Cluster in yellow and red card stock and added them below the windows and used the Whittle Cloud as smoke from the chimney.

20200822_115331c

I think this card could be used for many occasions and would also be great for a guy so I left the sentiment on the inside simple with Just A Note stamped on a Colwell Label. This label die cut is what helps to keep the card in the easel position but it will mail flat in an A2 envelope. No extra postage needed!

Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great week!

Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0133

Poppy Peeps, the year is closing fast, and the holidays are right around the corner... time for holiday card making! Poppystamps has a new die set called Winter Porch Pop Up Easel, and I have a little inspiration today you might find interesting. Have you ever made an easel card?

DSC_0134_wm

It's super simple with the right dies, and Poppystamps has 'em!

The front of an easel card rests on a piece on the inside, and best of all, it fits into an A2 sized envelope.

DSC_0128

First I die cut all the pieces. You'll notice I tripled the windows and door, and doubled the triangle eve wanting extra dimension for those pieces.

All 7 pieces are included in the set. 

DSC_0135_wm

Once put together, the fun begins! Time to dress up the front! Snowy eaves, a glitter tree, and holiday wreath. Hard to miss that this is a happy holiday greeting card!

DSC_0132

The Front of the easel tilts open and back, resting on a piece I Created from Birch Press Nobilia set.

DSC_0160

Here's a closeup of the Nobilia medallion, thrice cut and showing the edges of all three die cuts. Looks like a holiday front porch mat, doesn't it?

DSC_0140

The inside of the card is dressed up too, with a greeting from another new set just released, Holly Merry Christmas. All the deets on product used will be listed below. 

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, and stay safe. Indoors crafting is a great way to escape the summer heat!

Christmas Bird House Easel Card
by Nadine Carlier

117645098_3271881049557804_247024992920429433_n

Hello! Nadine here and today I am sharing a Christmas Easel Card I made using one of Poppystamps' new Christmas dies, the Bird House Pop Up Easel Set.  For the birdhouse, I used the Memory Box Garland Paper and for the snow, on the roof, I used the Memory Box Frosted Glitter Paper. For the wreath around the birdhouse opening, I used some green cardstock and then used Fairy Sugar in Ruby Crystals for the berries on the twigs.

Above you can see how the card looks when it is standing but here is what it looks like when laying flat. It will fit perfectly into an A2 size envelope.

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you next time!

Thank You Rose

Hello crafters! It’s Friday and that means the weekend is almost here! I hope you’re planning on getting a little bit of crafty time in.

Today I have another easy card that can be made quickly for any occasion.

First I took some patterned paper and white heat embossed a flower from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set on it and cut it out.

DSCN0350c

I chose a pink card stock that matches the patterned paper and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Gracious Leaves Embossing Folder. Embossing is a great way to add visual interest and texture to a simple card design.

DSCN0351c

Next I die cut the Orchard Leaves from white card stock to add around the flower bloom. I like the texture that the cut lines on the leaves adds to the card.

The sentiments are from the same stamp set as the flower. I chose two complimentary sentiments and white heat embossed the thank you on black card stock and stamped the second sentiment with black on white card stock.

DSCN0358c

I assembled the card and added a sparkly gem to the flower centre.

DSCN0340-c

You can really change up the look of your card by your choice of patterned paper. The options are limitless!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
