Festive Farmhouse Christmas
by Janet Katz

JOY card with sig
I'm a big fan of the farmhouse look, the rustic charm characterized by simple materials and a good amount of white space. Visit any craft store, furniture store, or my living room and you'll see how popular it is. At Christmas, this style means buffalo plaid, wicker or wire baskets, unvarnished wood, bottle brush trees, and more plaid. With some black and red check paper in my stash, I started working on a farmhouse Christmas card. I used the Double Joy Die set and cut the background from the check paper. The Poppystamps Woodgrain Kraft Paper was the perfect choice to create the outline. It *really* looks like wood. 

JOY card with sig
I wanted to set this off from the background but still use a woodgrain background, so I reached for the same paper but in the Cream color (also comes in white). Then I wanted to add something below the O to give it some texture and softness. I used the holly leaves and berries from the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Die Set. I finished off the card by layering a scallop-edged kraft paper, red paper and yep, more plaid beneath that. I was very happy with how it turned out and it was easy to make. 

The Cabin Snowglobe die set is the gift that keeps on giving. When I was cutting out the red berries, I had to cut red leaves since they are all part of one die. When I looked at the red leaves, they suddenly resembled a certain red holiday flower. I'm getting an idea!

Cozy Cabin
by Nancy Penir


Hello Poppy Peeps! It's holiday time and I have a warm and cozy card for you today.


There's no hiding I love the gold lines in Memory Box's plaid papers, so festive. And so easy to bring sparkle to a card! Together with foil, any card's going to shine!

The focal point of my card today is the new Holly Ring die, cut from gold foil and filled with a cozy cabin scene. It's a holiday card, but could easily double for a thank you, or any winter greeting.


There are several holiday paper packs in the Memory Box store, be sure to check them out!

And don't forget the newest in the Poppystamps store! 

Happy Holidays!

Patterned Poinsettias
by Sue McRae


Happy Monday everyone! Sue here today with an inlay Christmas card using patterned paper. This is definitely out of my comfort zone as I’m not very good at incorporating patterned paper into my card designs unless it’s being used for a background piece and I’ve never been a big fan of the inlay technique. But I thought I would summon my inner Jeanne Jachna who is the queen of the inlay technique and give it a whirl.


I used the Poinsettia Background today. It’s a nice big die that covers a card front so all you need to do is add a sentiment. I die cut the Poinsettia from white card stock, from gold glitter paper and then again from a variety of papers from the Garland Paper Pad. Since the colours in this patterned paper pack all go together it’s easy to make paper choices.


I added double sided adhesive to the back of the white die cut panel and laid all my pieces into the opening. It goes pretty quickly as the pieces are all big except for the leaves. The sentiment was die cut three times from black and adhered together and added to the card front along with some Fairy Dewdrops and Fairy Crystals.


When I was getting ready to attach the panel to the grey card base I felt like something was missing. I walked away from my craft table and thought about it for a bit and ended up taking a black marker and drawing thin lines around the edge of the panel. It was the solution I needed! It makes the panel pop against the card base and ties in with the black sentiment.


I hope you try adding patterned paper to your holiday cards in unexpected ways. It’s a great way to use up scraps too!

Enjoy your week!

Challenge Reminder – Sweater Weather
by Sue McRae


Hi everyone! Sue here with a reminder that we have a monthly challenge going on and the theme is Sweater Weather.


What is Sweater Weather? It can mean a fall theme, autumn colours, Thanksgiving, coffee etc. Whatever the term Sweater Weather makes you think of.


I created a fall themed card using the cute Whittle Beaver. I die cut him from white cardstock, inked him up in brown and gave him a plaid tail for a little fun!  And of course the little cutie is holding a pumpkin!

The Whittle Circles Frames were die cut from green cardstock and kraft woodgrain cardstock, layered and adhered to a cream woodgrain panel.


I die cut some maple leaves from plaid and gold glitter cardstock and added them to the frames.


The cream panel was adhered to a kraft woodgrain card base and I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the backside of the kraft woodgrain paper.

Now it’s your turn to create a project for the challenge.


The rules are simple - just create a project following the 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!

I can’t wait to see your designs!

Whittle Friendly Snowman
by Sue McRae


Hello everyone! Sue here with a card I featured during the Poppystamps Instagram Hop we had on October 15th. If you missed it, start the hop here.

I started by adhering the Watercolor Forest Greenery Washi Tape onto white cardstock and cut out an oval shape from it.


I then die cut the Diamond Snowflake Oval Frame from blue glitter cardstock and adhered the washi piece behind it. This was attached to the card base.


I die cut the body and head of the Whittle Friendly Snowman from White Woodgrain paper (it adds texture), his eyes, nose and hat from white cardstock and his scarf from plaid cardstock. Using Copics I coloured in the hat, nose and eyes.


I assembled the snowman and popped it up with foam squares. Love how jaunty he looks in his plaid scarf and top hat!


I felt there wasn’t an ideal spot for a sentiment on the card front so I put it on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
