Sending Christmas Cheer
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0114

Hi there and welcome to Poppystamps! My card for you features a new favorite Poppystamps die, Cottage Window. A timeless die set, it can be used any time of year. Thought I'd share a card I made into a Christmas window, already mailed and into it's new home. Now, I love to creat scenes. I get an idea and look for a way to bring that idea to life!

DSC_0109_wm

Cottage Window has 4 main elements. I gave it a shadow by backing it with a darker card stock.

Through the window you can see the home's Christmas tree. Here's how I made the tree.

DSC_0009

These trees are too small for what I was going for, so I simply created a larger image from all the small trees.

DSC_0012

Here they are die cut from 2 green card stocks, one light green the other dark, and detached from the die cut base.

DSC_0013

Once assembled, I added Nuvo drops to simulate ornaments. (I also added a bit of glitter too.)

DSC_0112

Outside, is another grouping of florals, this time from the bottom of the Festive Noel die.

DSC_0111

Once you have an idea for a card front, look through your dies and use what you need from them to create your  own design and scene.

Above all, have fun!

Merriest of Christmases and Have a wonderfully creative New Year! Cheers!

O Holy Night
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572808249747E12

Hi Poppy fans! It's now 5 days till Christmas and I have a card for you that shows the calm of that holy night.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I die cut and Copic colored the Whittle sleepy fox and the village houses. I picked out the windows from the houses and colored them individually so the houses look like they're filled with light and trees.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I forgot to take a picture of the background (sorry) but before assembling I inkblended the backgrond with oxide inks and splattered it with silver acrylic paint. I hand cut 2 panels for snowy hills and inked the top of them. The top layer is popped up. I then popped up the houses and fox and shaded under them with Copic markers. Notice the fox' pawprints. He loves the silence and the squeeking snow.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

My plan was to use the O holy noght flourish as smoke from one of the chimneys, and so I wanted to heat emboss it. In order not to break the intricate cut I layered 5 cuts. I then heat embossed 3 layers of WOW! white twinkle embossing powder. It's white with silver glitter and perfect for the smoke.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

This is my last post this year, so I thank you for all your sweet comments and I hope your Christmas is as calm and cozy as this scene.  I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Penguin shaker
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572810370585E12
Hello everyone! We are closing in on that one holy and so very special night and I'm here to share a cute shaker card with you.
IMG_20191127_213640

I first die cut the background and snowy hills of the snowglobe kit. I ink blended the background and the top of the hills using distress oxide inks. I flicked some diluted white acrylic paint over the background for a snowy look.
IMG_20191127_213640

I cut a panel and sprayed it with watercolors sprays. I'll admit this was my first time using them and the intencity of the color kind of surprised me. But I felt the look worked fine for a night time scene. Before the panel dried I also sprayed with a shimmer spray for a clear, frosty and sparkly look.

Poppy shaker2

I die cut the sentiment die and the snowflake tile from silver glitter cardstock. I cut off the frame so I had parts of the snowflakes. Making sure all the elements would fit I glued the sentiment and snowflakes in place. I also added a couple of stars with a white gelly roll pen.
IMG_20191127_213640

I placed the base and frame of the globe as well as the snowy hills. I then added the 2 darling penguins, colored with Copics, and lots of sequins, gems and chunky glitter.
IMG_20191127_213640

The frame of the globe I cut 6-7 times and layered them ending with a layer of acetate and one cut from silver glitter cardstock and placed over the globe. So pretty! I then added the stand of the globe, also Copic colored, popped up with craft foam.

IMG_20191127_213640

So there you have my holiday shaker. I appreciate you stopping by and would love if you would leave me a comment.

Mouse warming
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572790422814E12

Warning! These mischievous mice are turning this cozy relaxing by the fireplace into a mouse warming party!
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I die cut all the pieces from white cardstock, except for the stockings that were cut from Memory Box patterned paper. The mice were colored with Copics and the rest were colored with Distress regular and oxide inks.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I marked out where I wanted the fireplace and inked up the background with oxide ink. I extended the color from the fireplace to most of the background.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I popped up the fireplace and as you can see the mice are hanggliding in the Christmas stockings.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

To prevent the watchful corgis to chase them away, a couple of mice have tied their tails together.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I hope you like my inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today. Have a hapy crafty day!

Holiday Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

Hi there and welcome to the Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz! The design team will be showcasing some of the new, beautiful dies from the mini Holiday release. All you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win this beautiful and simple to use Snowglobe Kit Craft die

1C51D88B-8804-4BB3-A63F-E54CE6009808_1_201_a

First thing I did was use a blending brush with oxide inks , to make the background  sky. Then I splattered it with my shimmer pen.

D73D5EA4-C35B-444D-9DF7-FF82B8493953_1_201_a

At first I was going to add the fun foam to the back of each snow drift ,then decided to only add it to the largest one so not to have it too thick.

3CF485C0-70A5-43D8-977D-882237A56CFC_1_201_a

I used the circle die to trace a circle just a bit bigger than the inside of the snow globe. I layered the outer frame die about 3 or 4 times. I used craft store fine glitter paper for the snow drifts, then added a bit of chunky glitter, for more snow.

295FD8ED-44AA-4AEA-B2E5-04D11C51DA9F_1_201_a

I colored all my paper with Copic markers.  The trees are made from the Holly Outline Die from Poppystamps . So excited that Memory box will now carry patterned paper !!!! For the snowy backdrop to this card I used Dashing Holiday 6x6 paper pack. I just love those playful deer from last year , I will probably use them every Christmas.

Halloween / Fall Blog Blitz - Haunt it
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.567696050096E12

Hello Everyone! We are showcasing the halloween/fall release in this Blog Blitz and have I got a fun spooktacular card for you today! You may want to get a warm cuppa and get cozy, because this has lots of details!

Poppy how to

I had this scene in my head and so I planned out where I wanted everything. This finished card is 5x7 inches to fit everything in. I die cut the Magical cauldron, because I wanted the steam parts to show. I placed the cauldron back in, securing it on the back, and also added a tiny piece of gold cardstock behind the holes. I ink blended the panel with Twisted citron, Spiced marmelade, Seedless preserved and Black soot Distress oxide inks. I also diluted a drop of gold acrylic paint with a little water and splattered it over the cauldron.
Poppy how to

I had watched a video of a pull tab technique and decided it could be done without the dies. So I created the pull tab out of black cardstock and cut a narrow strip out of the panel. Make sure you first place your elements and test placement before cutting.
Poppy how to

Pulling the pull tab "arms" through the slot and - again - testing placement, I could mark the pull tab with a pencil to cut off the excess so it wont show on the finished card. Pull the arms back out, cut with your scissors and reposition arms and surprise element. I was placing the Happy Jack O Lantern over the Scary ghost. Since the ghost wasn't quite covered I cut it to size. When placing the Jack o lantern I popped it up with foam squares, making sure they wouldn't be in the way of the ghost going up and down. With a strip of cardstock I secured the pull tab on the back. Also, when adding craft foam to the back I made sure it didn't colide with the pull tab.
Poppy how to

I colored all the die cut elements with Copics, giving them the look of a glow on the one side. This is the Spellcaster witch, how cool is she!
Poppy how to

Here I've used the Friendly cat and the smaller pumpkins are from the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick frame. I also wanted the cat to have a little cauldron-glow and the eyes are made with a gold pen. The sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set is heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Watermark1.567696145084E12

So here's the card showing the surprise ghost. I let the pull tab stick out from the top of card, looking like a tombstone that rises when the ghost appeares. On the top of the tab I wrote PULL with a gold pen.
Watermark1.567726973261E12

And guess what! I couldn't help myself from throwing in a little extra fun, so I heat embossed the ghost with a glow-in-the-dark embossing powder. I think it looks so cool!
Watermark1.567696145084E12

So much fun right?

Jungle party
by Tina Wilstrup

Jungle1

Hello everyone, and welcome! Today I'm showing you just how much of a jungle party you can have with the gorgeous summer release products!
Jungle1

First I cut an A2 panel from watercolor cardstock, spritzed it with water and added Nuvo shimmer powder in Green parade. I kept adding more water and powder until I was happy with the look. It's hard to show on a photo but I love the shimmery look these powders give in real life.
Jungle1

I then used the Fun floral sidekick frame die to cut 4 frames. I wanted my top layer light and "floating", so I cut off all the fern leaves with my scissors.
Jungle1

For my top layer I used yupo paper and Ranger alcohol ink in Limeade, Patina and Gold mixative. Again i kept adding color until I liked it. I was going for a dense dark jungle in the back with a lighter front. 

You'll notice that I didn't add my sentiment before attaching the frames. The sentiment from Whittle everyday stamp set I stamped fine with my stamping tool, but be aware that the yupo paper does not handle heat very well. I had to heat set the WOW! Gold pearl embossing powder very carefully. 
Jungle1

I cut a bunch of the cute Whittles - monkey, koala, lion, tiger and turtle, all part of the summer release! I colored them with my Copics and popped them up with foam squares. Now, I know they don't naturally live together, so let's just pretend they came from near and far to celebrate. 
Jungle1

The finishing touch was Nuvo drops in pale gold.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to create!

Turtley Awesome
by Marybeth Lopez

 Hello! Hope you all enjoyed the blog Blitz!  The winners will all be announced August 29 ... 

I have a fun little card using some of the new Poppystamps Summer Dies all linked below. I love that the Whittle Everyday stamp set, goes  with so many of the Whittle characters.

I used ALL WHITE CARDSTOCK for this card, everything was  ink blended with the brushes. 

Fullsizeoutput_2cc6

 In case you are wondering where I got the coconuts .... I just cut ends of the clouds and then colored them brown.

I didn't do the sky solid blue because I wanted it to look like light clouds in the sky background  .

Fullsizeoutput_2cc5

I used some masking tape to do the grass then picked it up and moved it down on the green area and then blended the sky portion with my blue inks.

Fullsizeoutput_2cc4

I leave my white images in the panel , sometimes easier to blend with out worrying about fingerprints. 

Fullsizeoutput_2cc9

 

Thank you for the visit and I hope you have a great day.
