Christmas Snowglobe
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0009

Greetings Poppy Peeps! There's a crispness in the air, signalling my favorite time of year... Christmas! Sending and receiving holiday cards are a tradition I cherish. today I'm sharing a card I made with several Poppystyamps dies and their new holiday paperback.

All products will be listed at the bottom of this post. One extra special new one,  is the designer paper with the gold thread used as the base for my card.

I chose to use several shimmer card stocks for the snowglobe and house. Just that extra sheen is so festive! The snowglobe includes the snowy layers, perfect for tucking in the main elements.

The snowy sky is the reverse of one of the designer papers in the pack. Really, the only stamping was the embossed sentiment on the base of the snowglobe. Everything else is die cut!

Look closely to see I did cut a darker color for each of  the white snowflakes, so they'd stand out against the plaid. The trees too. You might notice too, I die cut the ring of the snowglobe 3 times and glued them together for dimension. The base is built up with foam.

I hope you found some inspiration today. Christmas scenes are so much fun to create, especially with all the darling dies Poppy has for the holidays. Hope your week is extra crafty!

Galaxy Christmas
by Sue McRae

20201114_132438c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a Christmas card using a galaxy sky background for the cute Simple Lantern Oval die.

20201114_132511c

This is my first attempt at making a galaxy sky with Distress Inks and I have to say it was a lot of fun!

20201114_143654c

I took white cardstock and pounced and blended a few Distress Ink colours randomly over the panel. I added pink and purples first, then light blues and darker blues and finally black. And yes, it looks like a hot mess when you're starting out (as you can see in the pic) and it doesn't matter if you have blotches because as you continue to add colours it evens out and some sort of dark night sky magic happens.

When I was happy with the inking, I mixed Perfect Pearls with water and flicked it on the panel and let it dry. Then I did the same with white paint and blue metallic paint and these became the stars and/or snow! Totally up to you! It really adds to creating depth in the night sky!

20201114_132524c

I die cut the Simple Lantern Oval 4 times from black cardstock and layered them. I added a piece of glitter cardstock behind the lantern for a little sparkle.

For the scene, the house and tree were die cut from white linen cardstock and for the snow I die cut the Whittle Cloud Border from white pearl foil paper from the Polished Foil Pad.

The Holly Merry Christmas was die cut from the same sparkly platinum cardstock found in the Holiday Glitter Pad.

20201114_132443c

I hope you get inky and try making your own galaxy background and incorporate it into one of your Christmas cards!

Wishing you a crafty week!

You could win a $20 certificate to the store, just by playing along !

Hi there! Marybeth, here today. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying October.

For this card, I used the beautiful Snowy Forest Embossing folder from memory box , for the backdrop of my card.

Not sure if you can see but I added some glitter on the embossed folder , its such a beautiful  shimmer in person.

I simply added the glitter die cut trees from Poppystamps to the already embossed panel.

In the photo above I am showing how I die cut the leaves , you might not even need a metal shim but the trees came out so beautifully when I did. Glitter paper is a bit thicker than most paper,  the dies cut like butter with the shim. You could probably use an extra paper if needed and you don't have a shim.

I always cut out way more than I need  so I can choose as I go, to create my card then I have extra for the next card.

Party Animal

Party-Animal-Three
Hi Friends! I  hope you're having a great day!  I know you love to make, but did you know Poppystamps has a monthly challenge?  It's a great way to see how others are using their Poppystamps Dies, and you might just win a $20 gift certificate to the store for linking your design. 

2020-09

This month we're looking for Cards for Kids!  I don't have any special little people in my life at the moment, but that's ok.  I know this card will be well received by the adult kids in my life too! 

Party-Animal-Two

I made a scene card featuring lots of the WHITTLE Series dies.   The background is a soft blue card stock panel topped with waves  (WAVE TRIO) cut from darker shades of blue card stock.   A few Whittle Mounds make a nice place for the Whittle Gator and Whittle Monkey to hang out. 

Party-Animal-Four

I filled the ocean with Whittle Fish and gave them google eyes to make them even more fun!   Little clear sequin bubbles are rising up through the water.

Party-Animal-One

Brilliant Rings make a sunny sky with only a few Whittle Clouds passing by.  The Whittle Monkey is hanging in a Whittle Palm Tree.  I see him throwing coconuts at the Whittle Gator because they are so mischievous! 

Party-Animal

I hope you find time to play along and make a special card for the special kid in your life!  I know they'll giggle with delight!

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.

20200822_115230c

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!

DSC_0183

I'm showcasing 'Proper Brick House', a 3 piece die set, that allows you to be as detailed and creative as your paper crafting mind can take you! And the die set you could win. Take a look!

DSC_0203

The possibilities for being creative with this die are mind bending! I decided to go all out and use those tiny bricks on my house.

DSC_0187

I die cut the house 3 times, using 3 different colored card stock. Note: if you want most of the bricks to stay, add a sheet of printer paper behind your card stock. Also helps to have this handy dandy brush tool to quickly remove all those tiny bricks. One other note, I traced around the die, so I'd have a solid piece of a little bit darker pink to glue down my bricks. Same with the chimney.

DSC_0193_wm

If you love paper piecing with pattern, you're gonna love Memory Box's new paper packs!

DSC_0190

I gave my Proper Brick House a bit more dimension by adding fussy cut windows and door. You don't have to do this step, but wow, does it make that sweet house pop!

DSC_0199

No foam tape for my mini dwelling, just layer on layer, on layer!
