Christmas Snowglobe
by Nancy Penir


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!

Penguin shaker
by Tina Wilstrup

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


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

Shake It Up!
by Sue McRae


Hello everyone, Sue here with a Christmas shaker card!

Who doesn't love getting a fun shaker card, I know I do, but it's also fun to make them! I used the new Snowglobe Kit which makes it so easy to put together.


I started off my die cutting all my pieces. I used some patterned paper from Memory Box for the trees, wood grain card stock for the snow drifts, wood paper for the moose and base of the snow globe.


The background piece is navy card stock but I wanted to make the edges darker and used Distress Ink to achieve this.


After adhering all my pieces down I added small star sequins to the night sky and I have my acetate piece ready with the double layer of foam adhesive. A little tip, when you're adding foam adhesive to a curved item peel the paper backing off both sides of the foam, it will be so much easier to bend it around the circle.


Now I've added my iridescent mica flakes on top of the snow globe piece and will place the acetate window piece over this. I find it much easier to do it this way than adding the shaker elements inside the window and trying to centre the snow globe piece on top.


For the card background I used a piece of patterned paper with Twas the Night Before Christmas text and added a Double Stitch Rectangle Frame along with the the snow globe and base.


Have you made a shaker card before? Let me know in the comments.

Happy crafting!

A Child is Born
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there ! Marybeth here today with an ink blended Christmas card from Poppystamps and using a Merry Christmas stencil from Memory box . The Stencil is called: Christmas Cursive Merry. I thought is was from last year but I was wrong sorry it's from 2014  #88578 You can make this card using any Christmas stencil you have .


I sprayed the back side of my stencil with : Pixie Spray I think I bought mine on Amazon but many places sell it. I started out ink blending with Candied Apple and wanted a deeper red.


I went over my stencil a second time using : Festive Berries


Then one last time did the trick using Ruby red. I love that you can add to the card base with any color. This stencil is very detailed and so easy to do with a blending brush as pictured above. Now the fun part......


Taking the stencil off! Without the spray to hold such a detailed stencil in place , it would be hard to have such a clean white image , I love how this turned out. I couldn't decide what color to frame my sentiment ( using the snow globe ) so the frame is cut 3 times and glued together. Then I added a bit of glue to add my two layer dove and olive branch . 


My new and very favorite craft glue is : Art Glitter Adhesive.... It comes with a stainless tip and pin to keep the adhesive flowing freely and the tip is so fine . I love how precise this glue is. Many places sell that too , pretty sure I bought mine on amazon . No glitter in it it's just what it called.  I will share a picture of it on my blog. Here  


I used the Snowglobe ,Christmas Time Stamps and Dove and Olive Branch from Poppystamps the patterned paper around the frame is from memory box Dashing Stripes and Dots.

Thank you so much for the visit today.  Hope I have inspired you in some small way and I hope you have a beautiful weekend.



Snow Speckle Washi Card
by Nancy Penir


Happy Holidays to you! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a card made with the new Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape Poppystamps has available in the store. 


I've used several of the new dies out this season, plus Mod Poinsettias. And here's a hint on a way to use the wide Washi.


I covered a red card stock panel with the Washi, and die cut 3 smallest poinsettias. The width makes it easy to cover a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.



The touch of softened red with the white dots went nicely with the pastel card. I added white die cut poinsettias, sponged inked with the same aqua behind my Bethlehem scene. The sentiment, O Holy Night was cut down a bit to fit on the bottom.


Hope you enjoyed today's holiday post, and hope your holiday cards are well on their way to being done!

Have a wonderful, Happy, Crafty Holiday!

Holiday Blog Blitz: Believe Flourish
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps Novmber Blog Blitz Photo 1 with signature

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you all are enjoying the Holiday Blog Blitz! Today I am sharing with you the Believe Flourish die from the new release. This die is great as a single focal point on a card, but also each component of the die can be separated and used individually just how I used the believe sentiment for today's card.

Today's card is packed with a lot of new dies from the Holiday release which all coordinate and pair wonderfully together. I paired the new Snowglobe kit, townhouses, and dancing snowflake dies together to make the cute winter scene card; leaving the Believe Flourish die as the star of the show!

November Blog Blitz 2

I used silver mirror cardstock from my stash to die cut the flourish and sentiment from the Believe Flourish die. Then I carefully separated the word Believe from the flourish with my scissors and placed it as the sentiment for my card.

November Blog Blitz 4

I just love how shiny the Believe sentiment pops off the card. 

For the snowflake elements on the card I used the Dancing Snowflake tile die similar to how I used the Believe flourish die and die cut the snowflake tile from some white cardstock. I then cut the two middle snowflakes from the die cut piece with my scissors and placed them as background elements on my card. 

November Blog Blitz 3
I love thinking outside of the box and using the Poppystamps dies for more than their intended purpose. Many of the dies can be die cut and the components can be used individually for other purposes within your projects.
