Gleeful Snow Globe
by Jyoti Adhikari

Hi this is Jyoti here today. A warm wintery welcome to all fellow crafters. Today we are diving into the joyous world of Christmas crafting with Poppy Stamps' latest release as we  craft a whimsical snow globe card. Using three enchanting products from our new collection, we'll bring a winter wonderland to life with glittering trees, a charming scene, and festive details.

Nordic Elegance: Glittering Trees


Our winter scene begins with the Nordic Whimsy Trees Craft Die and Nordic Tree Toppers Craft Die. With silver and green glitter card-stock from Glitzy Glitter Pack we fashion majestic trees. The foreground boasts two towering trees created with alternating colors of silver white and green card-stocks while the background is adorned with two smaller green ones. 

Winter Wonderland: The Snow Globe Assembly


I meticulously brought these glistening trees to life within the confines of a snow globe. Using the Simple Rings Craft Die, I cut a background which is the sky, blending hues to perfection and splattering delicate snowflakes in white. The magic intensified as I delicately crafted an acetate globe, with a white ring of border around it. Layer by layer, the enchanting landscape materialized—first the background, then the glittering trees, followed by a snow bank, and on top goes the acetate globe. Then finally the snowglobe base created with the Snowglobe Bases Craft Die was added with a foam tape to complete the whole snow globe. With each element strategically placed, a mesmerizing winter spectacle emerged.

Plaid Perfection: The Background


The stage is set with a backdrop of plaid perfection, using a piece from the pretty pattern paper from Poinsettia Plaid Paper Pack. This pattern paper enhances the festive charm, creating a delightful contrast against the glittering trees and snowy globe.

Winter Greetings: Heat Embossed Sentiments 


No Christmas card is complete without heartfelt sentiments. We stamp and emboss a "winter greetings" using the Christmas Banners Clear Stamp Set on the snow globe stand. The sentiment is embossed in white, adding a touch of elegance. To complete the card, shimmering stars cut from silver cardstock embellish our creation, adding a final flourish of festive magic.

This delightful Christmas card is a testament to the joy of crafting with Poppy Stamps. Join us in creating a whimsical winter scene that will enchant and delight anyone lucky enough to receive it. Happy crafting!!

I created a stencil using a snowflake die and Post It Note! Next, I layered brightly colored snowflakes onto a white card base. Wouldn't a sky filled with these be a sight to behold!

Winter Greetings Snowglobe
by Birgit Norton


The winter season is closing in on us and the time for sending out Christmas greetings is right around the corner.  Are you ready?  Birgit here with you today with a cute Christmas snowglobe card featuring some dies from the winter 2023 release.  


I started by creating the snowglobe scene, by cutting the Simple Rings Craft die out of white cardstock.  I added color to the inside circle using Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks, and then splattered on some white snowflakes using Picket Fence Paint, flicking it on with a water brush.  I cut the Snowglobe Base out of a soft finish tan cardstock, distressing the edges with a bit of Walnut Stain DOX ink and layering the detailed pieces together with liquid glue.  I also stamped and cut two banners using a sentiment from the Christmas Banners Clear Stamp and Die Set.  I heat embossed one in gold and the other stamped in black, simply because I didn't know which one I wanted to use.  


I die cut the Whittle Field and Trees from white cardstock and then cut it again using the circle die.  I glued the tree line to the snowglobe circle.


I die cut the Sweet Nordic Snowman out of white cardstock, coloring his hat and scarf with Copic markers and then I assembled the snowglobe.   Next, die cut the Scandinavian Snowflake Plate out of white cardstock and adhere it to the front of a white A2 sized card base. 


Poppystamps sent these beautiful Floral Poinsettia Rub-ons by Memory Box when they shipped the winter die collection and I just had to use one!  I cut one of the smaller floral sprays from the sheet and rubbed it onto a scrap of white cardstock and then fussy cut it.  


I assembled the card front, attaching the floral spray for a finishing touch.

A Flock of Us!

Hi Friends! It's Rachel here to share an Autumn sky full of colorful birds in motion. I used the Poppystamps "Flock of Birds" and the "Whittle Field and Trees" dies to create this card. 


Every night in my town 10 to 15 thousand crows migrate together to our college campus to spend the night in safety--a spectacular phenomenon! So of course when I saw these dies,  I immediately thought to make a card to reflect this fascinating ocurrence. 


I began by die cutting many feathered friends using ink blended paper. I made piles for like pieces because there were so many. This die produces 7 birds, super awesome!


Next I glued pieces I thought went well together. There are two pieces for each bird and there are a total of seven birds!


I ink blended a gradient light blue sky with distress ink on a white A2 card front. Then I ink blended a strip of white paper in brown for the trees in the Poppystamps "Whittle Field and Trees". The fields, I watercolored in shades of green, yellow, and brown. 


The sentiment "For You Poe Script" came out gorgeous in a teal pearl paper. I love it because it is just the right amount of shine. The curvy strip sentiment is stamped in brown from the Poppystamps "Christmas Banners" stamp and die set.


I arranged my birds to look as natural as possible. As I glued pieces down, I overlapped a few pieces to give it dimension. After assembled, I added burlap string and Open Studio "Fairy Drops"  for texture  and balance to complete the card. The Fairy drops come in three sizes. These will go with any card because they are clear, yay!


It was so relaxing making this card. I thoroughly enjoyed gluing the birds together. I know they will be a favorite and well loved on many cards. Have a fun day and I hope you get a few hours of crafty goodness in. Please let me know if you have any questions. I love to chat about Poppystamps card making!

Polar Bear Christmas
by Tricia Barber


Hello everyone!  I have a wintery Christmas card to share with you today using the new Nordic Bears die along with the Heavy Branching Trees die.  I am from Atlanta so whenever I see a polar bear, I think about the Coke commercials from years ago when they had the polar bears in them!  So that is what inspired my card today.  I used some Glitzy Glitter cardstock to make the polar bear shadow image.  My snow bank is using the Whittle Field and Trees die and used that same glitter paper.   


I ink blended a background with Distress inks and splattered with white paint.   I masked off a moon for my night sky.   To color the Merry Christmas and sweater on the polar bear, I used my new Olo markers in R0.5, R1.5 and R1.7.   I used die cut the greeting with Lavish Merry Christmas die. 


I finished off the snowy winter night scene with the Heavy Branching Trees.  I added some jewels from the Christmas Fairy Jewels pack and layered my panel onto a red card base.   Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day!
