Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello! Hope everyone is happy and well. Marybeth here today. I have a simpler card made with a Double Stitch Tag , Mistletoe and Holly stamp and die and Christmas Time stamp all from Poppystamps .


Without worrying about being too perfect I lined up the largest tag die on a slant, then ran it through my big shot.

See below. Place top layer only to edge you want cut.


I colored in the stamped holly with Copic Markers added a bit of white Nuvo Crystal Drops and some Nuvo Glitter Gloss brush pen, over the top of the green holly leaves.


I added the white top layer onto the red card base and used some fun foam underneath . I adhered the cut dies then stamped the sentiment Merry Christmas.




Hope you have a great week and a blessed day, today

Thank you for the visit and kind comments.

Christmas Shaker Gift Tags
by Nadine Carlier

Shaker Gift Tags with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here and this year I decided I wanted to make my own gift tags instead of buying them and since I love shaker cards I decided to make shaker tags. Poppystamps has so lots of tiny dies that fit perfectly inside of the Pinpoint Shaker Ornament die.

I think these Tiny Fawns are one of my favorite dies. I just added a little ink to them to give them a little more dimension.

Of course, I also had to have a Santa's Sleigh in one of the shakers too.

Challenge Reminder Halloween Treats
by Nancy Penir


Hello, my Poppy friends! Nancy here, with a reminder that Poppy has a challenge going on, with a chance for you to win a gc to the Poppystamps store!

I made a trio of tagged candy bags for the grandkids, and used the Halloween Costume Cats stamp and die set.


All 3 tags were die cut from black cardstock, decorated, with a bright contrasting tag behind. 

Candy Bag 1 features the sweet pair of kittens in a pumpkin.


Time to get out the stash of Halloween themed ribbon and washi and enjoy decorating cards and tags.

The tag is connected to my bag of treats with a clothespin thats been 'washied' with trick or treat tape. 3 ribbons form my simple junk bow.


My treat bags are simple acetate bags that show off the contents.


I did my tags and bags assembly line, cutting and coloring everything first, then assembling my cats on the black tags cut with Poppy's Leafy wreath die. Don't you love the colorful window of leaves?


Leaves and Scary things is your challenge. Can't wait to see what you create! Play all month!

Happy happy Fall, and Happy Halloween!

Blog Blitz! Holiday Happenings
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028 2

Hi Poppy Peeps! Welcome to the 'Holiday Happenings' 2018 Blog Blitz! Lots of new dies, and some stamps and matching dies too! I'm showing you a new die called Deco Cecil Frame, and I've made a set of tags with it, another new die called Forest Stag.


The frame  is the perfect size for a tag, and I've used the 2nd largest Pinpoint Main Street Tags to create 10 holiday tags and a matching box. Will it be a gift? Maybe... but I have to say, I fell in love with how sharp the frame looks on a tag!


I die cut all my pieces first so I could assemble them easily. The frame itself was cut twice for each tag, once in a gold glitter cardstock and again in pale blue shimmer cardstock.


You can see how I first glued down the outside of the frame, then the shimmer blue inside, which allows for perfect fit, kinda like a puzzle.

The stag die was cut with red glitter cardstock. I backed it with another die cut from red cardstock, which gave it more body.

I couldn't resist decorating the top of the tag with tinsel, a paper rose and some gold garden sprigs, an oldie from Poppystamps, no longer available, but maybe you have it?

DSC_0030 2

I had the reverse die cuts already done, so I cut 5 more tags, out of black this time, and added a white glitter stag.


10 tags, with a matching box.


Here's how I made the simple matching box:


2 strips, cutting sizes listed, scored and glued, crosswise. This simple box holds 10 to 12 tags, and can be decorated any way you like.


White on one side, black tag on the other. 

This versatile frame die can be yours. Just leave a comment on my blog. I'd love to know what you think of it!

Comment every day during the blitz for a chance to win that day's featured die. The blitz runs from the 11th through the 21st, and the last day to comment is the 23rd. Winners announced on the 24th. Good luck!

Enjoy your day!

Merry Tags Card
by Robin Tharaldson

Sept22 Merry Full With


My project for today is featuring more products from Poppystamps 2018 Holiday release! If you haven't checked out the new dies and stamps just click HERE! For my tags I used the stencil that comes with Pinpoint Snowflake Sidekick Frame die set! What a great addition and so many uses!! My tags are framed using the smallest die from Stitchwork Rectangle Frames die set. 

Sept22 Merry CU2 NO

I have once again created a card that uses an A-10 (business) format; just a different look and still uses a first class stamp! As long as it isn't too heavy or exceeds 1/4" thick, lol! This size lets you be really creative with composition and design!

Sept22 Merry CU1 With

To finish my card I used Liquid Pearls to create the look of falling snow; I would much rather have just flicked some white paint, but we are still in the middle of a remodel and I can't find my white paint...along with a few other crafting necessities!

The following video will show you how this card goes together! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry and Bright Holiday Tags
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

I always like to refer to this time of year as the start of "Crafty Season." If you love to create holiday cards, projects, gifts, wrapping paper, Advent calendars, and gift card holders, there really is very little time left, am I right? So today I am sharing an idea for a beautiful holiday tag that will really put the pow in your holiday wrapping this year!


This merry and bright holiday tag was created with YUPO paper and alcohol inks! There are many different techniques you can try when using alcohol inks and YUPO paper, such as blowing the ink with a straw or blending the ink with a sponge dauber. To create this tag, I simply dropped very tiny drips of alcohol ink on my YUPO paper and let them spread and bloom all on their own. The drops form these pretty round shapes that remind me of shiny bulbs and ornaments. You can see the card on the right was the card I used to create this tag. The card on the left was gently blended with a sponge dauber, which will give you softer shapes and a blended look.


Once your cards are completely dry, cut them into your favorite tag shape, like the Stitched Main Street Tag I used here. I used the gorgeous and intricate Seed Snowflake Outline, cut out of sparkly white glitter paper, and yes, it shouts FESTIVE! If you want to make your snowflake pop, cut out an extra 3 or 4 snowflakes in plain white cardstock and carefully glue them all together. This tag has a wonderful feel to it too!


I love making beautiful tags, and I always run out! So this year, I am making tons of tags, early and often, to avoid the big Holiday rush! Join us all through the "Crafty Season" to find great inspiration and ideas from our entire Poppystamps team!

Thanks for joining us today!

We are so glad you can join us for our amazing Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz! From July 26 - August 4, we will be showcasing our brand new release and you could win BIG!

Let's get to the goodies! Today, I am showcasing the beautiful Mod Poinsettias that you will LOVE to add to your holiday collection! Take a look at this set of holiday tags I created with the Mod Poinsettia, alcohol inks, and YUPO paper!


Creating bright and bold designs with alcohol inks and YUPO paper is all the rage, and you will love how fun and easy it is to make unique projects of your own. YUPO paper is a smooth, synthetic, heavyweight cardstock especially suited for alcohol ink techniques, and is available at most neighborhood craft stores too! To create these bright tags, I started by laying out a piece of parchment paper on my mat, and setting out a few inks and my paper.


Spritz the paper with a light misting of water, then carefully drop a few little puddles of ink in a corner. Pick up a straw and blow the ink across the paper! The alcohol ink dries quickly, so work fast, adding more puddles and colors until you get the coverage you want. 


Once your YUPO paper is covered in ink, place them all in a safe place and let them dry. I let mine dry overnight, because I knew I would be sending them through my die cutting machine, and thicker layers of ink were still sticky hours later. When the ink was still wet, I added a very light sprinkling of very fine glitter to give the tags a little holiday sparkle in the light. While the alcohol ink cards are drying, cut out your Mod Poinsettias and the Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations in pretty foil paper.


When your cards are completely dry, cut out the Pinpoint Main Street Tags! I wanted my tags to look like a big swoosh of color  had blown in with the winter snow, so I left some white space and splattered ink areas on the tags on the first two tags. The third tag was fully covered in ink.


Once your Pinpoint Main Street Tags have been cut, add the Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations, the Mod Poinsettias, tiny jewel centers, sequins, and a pretty ribbon! These tags are ready for a special gift!


To win the amazing Mod Poinsettias, make sure you leave a comment on THIS POST! Come back every day, and you could enter to win a prize on every post!


Thanks for joining us today! Good luck and good crafting!

Sending Sparkle
by Nancy Penir


Hi! Nancy here, and I have a card full of sparkle today!


My card uses a few of Poppy's fabulous dies, and some sponge inking too. I'll show you how I created it.


Once I have a basic card idea, I get all my diecuts ready. For the Blooming Rose, I inked a scrap of cardstock with Distress Ink  colors before cutting it out.


I did the same with my tag.


For the background, I cut the 2 largest frames from the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame set.


This photo shows the sparkle when the light hits the card. Sentiment comes from Magic and Sparkle Clear Stamp set, and the sparkle is embossed with Stampendous Winter Wonderland. To help it stand out a bit, I used a colored pencil to hi-light the letters.

Hope you're inspired to give your card a bit of sparkle and shine. There are so many wonderful products out there.

Sprays, dry glitter, Stickles and Nuvo drops. Take your pick, and add some shiny goodness!
