Christmas Tree Wishes
by Rachel Duong


Hi, it's Rachel here in one of my favorite places to be -- the forest. Can you smell the sweet fragrance of pine? I can, even as I write this!  The Poppystamps "Iced Pine Trees" craft dies are beautiful. Let's make a card with a grove of snow-covered trees.


Following are the steps to create this card.
1. Using the Poppystamps "Leaf and Tendril" foil plate, hot foil the background on white cardstock with silver foil. 
2. Blend red distress ink over the entire background.
3. Cut out an oval from heavy vellum.


4. Using white cardstock, blend two green distress inks unevenly over an area large enough to die cut three sets of the "Iced Pine Trees" craft die.
5. Next die cut the "Iced Pine Trees" three times from this paper. 
6. Repeat die cutting the "Iced Pine Trees" three times on white cardstock for the layered snow pieces.


7. Adhere the snow to the trees. Some of the layers can be left without the snow. This gives the trees some variation.

8. On black card stock, stamp the sentiment from the Poppystamps "Christmas Sparkle" clear stamp set with embossing ink.
9. Heat emboss with white powder. 


10. Trim the background to fit an A2 card leaving room for a thin border around the card base. 
11. Arrange the card--lay the vellum down, but do not glue yet. Group the trees in a desired arrangement. (Tape on the back of the trees help)
12. Take a photo of the display to refer back to. Glue trees and sentiment on the vellum. 
13. Turn the vellum over and add glue only on the areas covered by the trees and sentiment. The glue will be not be visible.
14. Adhere card front on the card base. 


The silver foil is gorgeous. One more step might be to add glitter to the snow pieces.


How about white and silver acrylic paint splatters?!

The Wicked Witch of the West
by Janet Katz

Wicked Witch card2

The first time I saw the new Witches Shoe die from Poppystamps, I immediately thought of the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz. I didn't like that movie as a small child and I would hide behind the TV every time the witch came on TV. I figured she couldn't see me that way. Fast forward to now.
I toyed around with the idea of creating the famous image of the house on the legs and then I dove in to see if it would work. I chose a slimline design that measures 3.5" x 8.5". I knew I needed legs to make my design and there are no leg dies. I printed a simple illustration from the internet and did that old trick many of us learned in elementary school. I scribbled with a pencil over the backside of the image and then put it scribble side down on a piece of 110lb. white cardstock. Then I traced over one leg. When I lifted my image from the cardstock, I could see a faint line that I could cut along. I cut out two legs. Next, I cut strips of 65lb. black cardstock to create the look of black and white striped tights. I glued them on the legs and then cut off all the excess along the edges of both legs. I inked the bottom edge of the legs just a tiny bit to provide a shadow.

I die cut two Witches Shoes with the new Poppystamps die from red glitter cardstock from the Memory Box Glitzy Glitter 6 x 6 pad. I decided to leave off the extra "collar" piece at the top edge of each shoe. I created the buckle from red and black glitter paper. To make the whole stocking and shoe ensemble work, I had to trim the feet on my legs just a little to fit it behind the shoe (ouch!). When it looked right, I adhered them together.
I used some yellow ink, yellow cardstock, and an embossing folder I had in my stash to create the yellow brick road. Next, I cut up strips from a sheet of cream Woodgrain Paper to create the siding of the house. I inked the edges with a brown ink and then glued one to the next by overlapping each piece just a little.

I struggled with what to use for the whole card base and decided on green for grass. I used the brand new Pine Needle Shoots die in a slightly darker green to make grass shoots, adhering some with foam tape for dimension. What a flexible die!
Finally, I put everything together to create my Wicked Witch Scene. My sentiment was computer printed and die cut with the largest Word Balloons die.
I was thrilled to be able to shoot my photos on a vintage copy of the Wizard of Oz, owned by a relative many years ago.
When did you first see The Wizard of Oz?

Old World Deer
by Rachel Duong


Hello, it's Rachel! Let's welcome Fall, the season of crisp air, leaves turning color and days getting shorter with an "Old World" card! What is "Old World"?! It's a style that is worn, slightly tattered, yet familiar and nostalgic. Finishings are distressed and faded. I love this look!
To create this card I am using the Poppystamps "Pondering Layered Deer" and the "Leafy Branch Oval". The dies are from the Fall and Christmas 2022 releases.  I hope you like it!


Here are the steps to create this card. 
1. Die cut the Poppystamps "Pondering Layered Deer" out of kraft cardstock. Die cut the scarf in burgundy.
2. Lightly blend brown ink on the deer to create shadow and interest.
3. Adhere the pieces together. 

4. Using a fine tipped black marker, dot in the eye.
5. Using a snow marker, add highlights and spots on the deer. It does not need to be exact or realistic. 

6. Die cut the Poppystamps "Leafy Branch Oval" in brown and yellow. Use small scraps for green, lime, yellow, orange and burgundy. They will be used for the leaves. 
7. Take the yellow die cut and trim off the branches of the oval frame. Distress the frame unevenly with brown ink.
8. Take the brown die cut and paint it in a wash of darker brown.
9. Trim green, lime, yellow, orange and burgundy leaves off the die cuts. Glue leaves onto the brown branches of the die cut. 

10. Using a neutral cardfront, blend brown and green distress oxide inks mimicking an oval shape. Spritz water on each color and dry between applications for this effect.
11. Glue the finished "Leafy Branch Oval" on the card front.
12. Blend distress oxides and inks around the corners and edges. Trim down the cardfront to slightly smaller than an A2 size. 
13. Glue the deer on the cardfront. Add a few leaves for embellishments and balance in the lower right corner. 
14. Tie 1 mm burlap twine on the fold to complete the card.

Supplies I used. The dies are linked to Poppystamps below.


I hope my card finds you well. I love the heartwarming charm of this adorable deer. It has a timeless feel and I can see this deer in the forest, munching on leaves. 
Both dies are great for so many occasions and events throughout the year. Have a wonderful day!

Pondering Deer
by Nancy Penir


Greetings, Poppy Peeps! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a trio of holiday cards using the new Pondering Deer die set.


The deer die cuts in all the pieces you need with one cut. And if you use white cardstock, you can color each piece as you choose.

 I chose to use colored cardstock for each card, and this is what it looks like assembled with each color.


Card no. 1, with a red deer, and gray trees.


That's flocked cardstock I cut for the snow and snowy branches. Found it on Amazon.


Card no. 2, my deer is blue, with a snowflake frame.


I'm absolutely in love with the paper packs from Memory Box. Do yourself a favor and grab a few. Don't forget the glitter packs too.


Speaking of paper packs, check out this plaid background called Jolly Christmas.  Rich, gorgeous plaids with gold stripes. And double sided too!


For card no. 3, I used my flocked cardstock for the deer front.

I hope my trio of deer cards inspired you today. It's so easy to do an assembly line of cards while all product is out and handy.

Have a wonderful, crafty week, my friends!

Autumn Hugs
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey Poppy peeps! I know it is still summer, but I am ready for pumpkin everything, cool weather, and the changing leaves. To help usher in the season, I have a sweet autumn scene card to share with you. I used a bunch of products in my Poppystamps stash for this card, but it was easy to put together.

To start, I worked on the background. Die cut the Lattice Plate die from white cardstock and ink blend the top portion with yellow and orange dye ink for an ombre look. I knew I was going to cover the majority of the lattice so I only ink blended the top. Adhere it to an A2 card base. Next, free hand a hillside with scissors. And lightly ink blend brown dye ink at the top for a little more depth on kraft paper. This will be the ground for our scene. Splatter the ground with clean water for additional texture. Adhere the ground in place, and then splatter the entire background with gold metallic watercolor.



Next, ink blend scrap paper with a combination of fall colored inks. I randomly ink blended red, yellow, orange, and green dye inks and then dye cut several leaves from the panel. I wanted a combination of colors so instead of ink blending each die cut individually, this was an easier way. I die cut foliage from the Floral Cake Pop Up set, Mushrooms and Toadstools, and Garden Leaves and Berries. I assembled the mushrooms, added white spots with a gel pen, and arranged everything on the card front.

Next, I die cut the Whittle Papa Hedgehog and ink blended it with brown dye ink. I added accents with copic marker and a white gel pen. I adhered the hedgehog with foam tape for added dimension.


For the sentiment, I ink blended yellow and orange ink on scrap cardstock and die cut Playful Hugs. I die cut the sentiment a few times and stacked it for dimension. I embellished the card with gems from Autumn Fairy Jewels and Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.


Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Make sure to follow Poppystamps on Instagram, and each of the wonderful design team members for lots more inspiration. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
