Holiday Place Cards
by Robin Tharaldson

Holiday Place Card Full With

I'm not sure how many of you set your holiday table with place cards but my mom and grandmom ALWAYS had place cards! Hopefully it's not another  tradition falling by the wayside. I still use place cards; because I know not to have my Aunt sit next to a certain cousin...not going there!!! I made these super simple place cards using Poppystamps Double Stitch Tags, Tree Line Hill die and Memory Box Open Studio Pinpoint Scalloped Circles!

Holiday Place Card CU1 With

I cut two, of the Pinpoint Scalloped Circles, from white card stock to create the base of my place card. The little piercings around the edge are so pretty!

Holiday Place Card CU2 With

I added a little snow to the Tree Line Hill die cut using Simply White  Nuvo Crystal Drops; just needed a little something. I used the smallest of the Double Stitch Tags dies to create the name tag that slips behind the trees! I added the name using a thick white gel pen!

Holiday Place Card CU3 With

Here's a side view to show you how the place card stands up; you could even put a few chocolates inside!!  The following video shows how to assemble the Holiday Place Card!!

 

I hope you give this simple project a try; I think it would look great using kraft card stock as the background for a more rustic feel!! Thanks for stopping by and check out the Poppystamps Blog for more holiday project ideas!

Halloween Porch
by Jeanne Jachna

Halloween-Porch-Six
You're here so I know you love to craft.  Sometimes I'm not feeling so inspired.  When that happens I usually tell myself it's time to take a break.   There are other times when everything I see makes me want to get crafty.  
Fusion Oct 25-001 Fall Porch
I think it's important to support the craft community whether it's buying from small business owners or playing along with challenges I find on line.  It's a great way to find inspiration, see what other people are making and maybe find a few friends too.  I love the photo at Fusion Card Challenge this time and found myself recreating the fall porch scene with die cuts. 
Halloween-Porch
The background really defines the look of the porch. I die cut a panel of  light blue card stock with the Leafy Wreath Collage.   To replicate the look of the siding on the wall I scored lines across the panel every 1/4".  I attached some packing tape to the back of the panel and inserted colorful cardstock leaves inside the sticky openings in the front for a smooth finish.  I inked the edges of the panel to help define the lines in the panel and create shadow.
Halloween-Porch-One
The wood flooring was created using the Seaside Dock die.  I attached several die cut panels together on their reverse side, brushed them with distress ink and then cut the panel to fit my card front. 
Halloween-Porch-Four
I added loads of dies (you can find a complete list below).  The Happy Halloween Signs create my sentiment.  
Halloween-Porch-Two

Dark Stitched Batty Collage bats swoop around the Garden Lantern light.

Halloween-Porch-Five

Whittle Ghosts with rosy cheeks are moaning in the wind and  of course there's a Harvest Pumpkin embellished with Stitched Pumpkin Leaves on the porch too.

Halloween-Porch-Two
A Formal Candle die cut is placed inside the Garden Lantern with Circle Basics die cuts providing a glow.
  Halloween-Porch-Seven

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope my card inspires you to make too!

Autumn Night
by Jeanne Jachna

Halloween-Night-Two
I love fall!  It's my favorite time of year!  The nights are getting colder and the leaves are changing colors.  Time spent sitting around a bonfire in the yard with family and friends just talking is treasured by me.  It's not unusual to see bats flying around catching mosquitoes, or hear the call of a great horned owl in the distance.  Some nights under the starry sky are absolutely magical! 
Halloween-Night
I created my idea of a beautiful autumn night.  You know I can't resist lots of color!

Halloween-Night-Three
I started by cutting the Birch Stitch Frame, and the second largest Double Stitch Rectangle Frame in the set from white card stock.   I cut a panel to fit behind the frames and inked it up with distress oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch.  I splattered it with water, and then some watered down Faded Jeans and white ink.   I use foam cosmetics applicators from the local dollar store to apply the ink.   They're reusable and affordable at $1 for a pack of 28.  I adhered the frames to the inked panel.
Halloween-Night-One
I cut the largest Double Stitched Rectangle frame and adhered it to a card base.  I inked the negative inside panel with Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide and splattered it with watered down Peacock Feathers.  I didn't ink the entire panel because I covered up the center with the blue panel.
Halloween-Night-Four
I die cut all the whittle images from white card stock and colored them with regular Distress ink (it's much brighter).  I use cotton swabs to add details in small places and along the edges.  Again these are from my local dollar store.  I'm a frugal crafter!   A white gel pen is great for adding accents.
Halloween-Night-Five
I  love the clean lines and the matching stitched pattern on all three frame die cuts.  The stitches are repeated on the leaves and images on the design.
Halloween-Night-Six

Isn't that Whittle Squirrel adorable?  This is the larger one from the set of two.   You can see all the latest release dies in the store here.
  Halloween-Night-Seven
I hope you have a fabulous weekend and the sun is shining wherever you are!

Majestic Mountains
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5589-wm

Hello Everyone!

I am so glad you could join us today! Today I am sharing this peaceful winter scene featuring the adorable Wilderness Moose Duo! Take a look!

IMG_5585-wm

One of the things I often say is just how amazing it is that so many Poppystamps dies work so well together! Today I cut the Mountain Background in purple and white, the Wooded Glen Landscape in green and white, and the Wilderness Moose Duo in brown and matched them all together perfectly! When you create pretty winter scenes of your own, you can always experiment to use the dies in new ways. I love creating cards that have images extend outside of the frame, so I brought the tiny branches of the pine trees on top of the Pointed Rectangle Frame instead of tucking them behind the frame. It gives the card an expansive look.

IMG_5579-wm

One all of your images have been cut out, take a moment to arrange the scene before you begin gluing. I fooled with this scene for a while until I had positioned the moose and snow in just the right place. Sometimes a scene looks better with more foreground, or more sky, for example, to get the perspective just right.

IMG_5587-wm

Pretty winter scenes can work for so many occasions, so I hope you'll give it a try and share what you create too!

Thanks for joining us today!

Holiday Blog Blitz! Trio of Joy
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0008

Hello! And welcome back to Poppy's holiday release Blog Blitz. Nancy here, and I'm featuring a new die called, 'Mountain Hills Plate'. And if you're looking for a holiday die that does it all, and delivers easy breezy, this one's a must have!

DSC_0020

The die measures an A2 size card, and cuts in 3 sections plus a frame. I chose to do my winter scene in shimmery shades of cardstock.

DSC_0016

Perfectly easy to do 3 cards, with all the sections lined up with the 3 colors of cardstock.

DSC_0021

Here's a tip for doing the 'joy' sentiment. I cut out the word from poppy's new Joy die, & ombred the die cut before stamping it with it's coordinated stamp from Tidings of Joy. I used my Misti to line up the word with the stamp, and simply inserted each

die cut before stamping. Once you do the first one, the others line up perfectly and easily.

DSC_0011

A few snowflakes and a sprinkling of sequins, and my trio of Joy is done! Already planning to do more in other colors, maybe with glitter paper? 

DSC_0006

Want to win this fabulous Mountain Hills Plate die? Just leave a comment. Winners will be announced on the 6th. Hope you win! And don't forget to comment each day of the blitz!
