PSC#112 Challenge Reminder - Sparkling New Year!
by Sphoorti

Hello Poppy Peeps!


It's Sphoorti with a gentle reminder of this month's challenge - PSC#112 - Sparkling New Year! This month we're looking for some SPARKLE! We hope that gets you thinking of fireworks, a little confetti, or maybe some bubbly! Even if you're ringing in the new year comfy cozy at home, and watching the snow fall and sparkle in the sun, we want you to capture the magic. Just add some glitter, gems or foil to your design so we can watch you shine this year!  

 

Projects can be for any occasion, and you're not limited to making cards. We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between! It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project! You must use a Poppystamps product to be eligible to win.

 

This was my take on the challenge, and such a quick and easy one - it's another that you can totally mass produce this for the holidays! It's actually even faster than the one I had in my previous challenge post, check it out here!

Hope you like it!

 

Did you know you can use dies to hot foil? I absolutely love the design of the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die and thought I'd try to see how it would look hot foiled. It turned out even better than I'd imagined! I've said it before, and I'll say it again - this die is SO beautiful!

Using some silver mirror cardstock from the FP1003 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6 pack, I die cut a strip to adhere a sentiment on. I took a piece of vellum and adhered it to the back of the strip and foam mounted it for some dimension.

Then I used the CB513 Christmas Banners clear stamp and die set to emboss the Happy New Year sentiment and die cut it. I adhered the sentiment to the foiled band and adhered it towards the bottom of the card.

And actually, that was it! So easy-peasy!

 

I actually have a bonus card for you too! It came together even quicker than the one above! For this one, I hot foiled the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die plate the same way, but for the sentiment, I used the die cuts from the and old JOY sentiment die that is no longer available, unfortunately. But the Snowflake Plate still is, so be sure to get one before it's gone! 

 

 

Now it's your turn to take on the Sparkling New Year challenge! Need a little more motivation? How about a prize? The winner of this challenge (chosen at random) will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store! Remember - projects can be for any occasion, and you're not limited to making cards. We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between! It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project!

 

 

Have a great rest of your week, and good luck!

 

Love,

I cut a panel of white card stock using the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die. I took some perfect pearls in the gold and perfect pearl color and made a solution out of them with water and sprinkled it all over the panel. Honestly, you don't even need to do this - the die is SO beautiful, it can be used fully clean and still make a huge impact. I just love the extra sparkle and shine.

I cut out a panel of glitter card stock from the GP1006 Festive Glitter Pad and adhered it behind the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die cut panel.

Using some silver mirror cardstock from the FP1003 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6 pack, I die cut the innermost scalloped frame from the 2474 Double Scalloped Stitched Frames craft die. I took a piece of vellum and adhered it to the back of the frame.

Then I used the 2475 Small Freestyle Merry Christmas craft die to cut a few merry die cuts out of white card stock. I adhered them all together for dimension and the chip-board like feel. I topped the layered merry with another merry that I cut out of the same glitter card stock I used behind the 2574 Scandinavian Snowflake Plate craft die cut panel from the GP1006 Festive Glitter Pad. I absolutely LOVE this color, don't you?!

Winter Greetings Snowglobe
by Birgit Norton

PoppyStampsNovember7

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.  

PoppyStampsNovember3

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.  

PoppyStampsNovember2

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.

PoppyStampsNovember5

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. 

PoppyStampsNovember4

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.  

PoppyStampsNovember8

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

IMG_4889-wm

This pretty Clean and Layered card has a wonderful winter mood, and would make a sweet holiday card too. I started with a cars base of turquoise blue with a light glittery sheen. Then I cut the Heavy Branching Trees out of a dark, shiny green. I wanted to create a sparkly Christmas night, where our two snowman pals from Snowman and Trees stand in wonder of the starry sky.

IMG_4888-wm

I cut the Whittle Field and Trees in a crispy snow white to look like a snowy field. The little marks from the whittle lines remind me of tiny tracks in the snow,

IMG_4890-wm

I added the Snowman and Trees, and the tiny gold star from the center of the largest Adelaide Snowflakes. A sparkly red Joy Freestyle out of red foil paper and a few sticky gemstones finish off this sweet holiday card.
