Donut You Forget
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0006

I have a card for you that's going to a young boy today. Sometimes it can be hard to create something for the young ones in our lives. Hopefully this will help give you some ideas.

DSC_0001

I picked a Poppystamp die that I could cut several colors from, and saved the little donut holes. They looked so festive!

The finished card is a combination of color and elements my little guy loves (who doesn't love donuts?)

Here's a sideview of the popups.

I had a few leftover donuts, so I added them to the inside. 

Hope you got some ideas for you next child card.  And hope your week is extra crafty!

Mixed Media Heart
by Donna Peachey

3-2

It didn't take me long to realise that I could have some Mixed Media fun with the Wavy Heart craft die. 

Corrugated card is one of my favourite things to use with Mixed Media work, so in today's post I'm combining the two.  And what's more, once you have the basic idea under your belt you can decorate it however you please.

Here's a 'how to' guide...

Snapseed

Start by drawing around the actual die and cutting it out with scissors.  I've used a piece of scrap card packaging as I like the fact the a small bit of text will show on the finished design.

You may want this to have some degree of durability, so please add and glue together additional layers if you so wish.

Snapseed 2

Next, grab your corrugated card stash.  As you can see, mine's in two different colour tones (you'll understand why shortly).

You will want to cut out this die twice.  Once with the pattern running top to bottom and once with it running left to right.

Snapseed 3

It's mix and match time!

Take alternate strips off one die cut and swap them out with the pieces from the other.

Then glue into place on your hand cut die shape.  It's up to you whether you use one heart for the front and one for the back or keep the other for a separate project.

FullSizeRender

Now to decorate Mixed Media style...   Don't forget to do the back if you've used both hearts for this project!

Snapseed 4

Here's a visual guide to the supplies used to decorate...

Firstly, sponge on the brown inks.  I've used the lighter shade on the rows running left to right and darker for the rows running top to bottom.

Then add a layer of gilding wax focusing mainly on the outside edge of the heart.

Next it's paint splatter time.  Light blue first.  Once dry, add the white.

Only when completely dry...  add partial black images using this stamp from the Studio Blotter clear stamp set.

(Tip...  don't use a stamp tool or a stamp block for this.  Just hold the stamp in your hand and apply the stamp to the archival ink pad, then press down on to the heart using your fingers to add pressure.  This stops your corrugated heart from getting flattened).  

Snapseed 5

You can choose whatever you like to decorate.  I'm using the Fresh Petals craft die along with a sentiment from the Little Kindness clear stamp set.

The fullest flower uses every petal from the die cut set.  Such versatility and such cute little flowers!

4-2

Here's a close up of the fullest flower.  I've added a layer of varnish (from a spray can) to all three flowers.

Snapseed 6
Decide on your layout, but before gluing the flowers and branch pieces into position add one final finishing touch - this small 'dotty' stamp from the Studio Blotter set.

Stamp it freehand just as you did with the other stamp, then glue everything into place and add the sentiment (which I've stamped with Memento 'Gray Flannel').

5-2

Add a hole and some twine...  and you are finished!

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Enjoy your day.

Thank You Card Set
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0005_wm

February brings the hope of Spring, and I'm here today with some ideas for easy, fun stamping.

DSC_0026

I love doing cards in multiples, especially for giving gifts. A set of thank you cards (A1 size) is the perfect appreciation to give a friend. Or a neighbor who fed the cats while you were away?

DSC_0014

I selected one of my favorite Poppy stamp sets, Little Kindnesses, and a Poppy tag die, marking off the die, lightly with a pencil. Here's where the fun starts. Using my Misti, each card is placed and stamped one after another, in an assembly line. 

DSC_0013

Here's a look at all the elements before the card is assembled. Each tag is inked a different color, 6 total.

DSC_0015

I placed my tag in the Misti for placement of the bee trail as well.

DSC_0018 2

The large die cut flower is copic colored, coordinated with the tag, and adhered to the tag. If you look closely, you can see I glued only the center of the flower so I could curl up the petals slightly. Finishing touches include the script die cut and some Nuvo drops.

DSC_0019

Don't forget the envelopes! So easy to decorate them with the Misti too!

DSC_0032

Packaged together with a ribbon, a sweet way to say, 'thank you'. And great therapy for a cold winter's afternoon. How nice to have several of these sets on hand, ready to go.

DSC_0025

I hope this post today brought you a bit of Spring sunshine. And I hope you're feeling crafty, no matter the temp outside!

Hi everyone! It's crunch time at the Penir household. Plenty of goings on and shopping and wrapping, and cards are on their way. One thing I never have enough of is tags! So I put together some simple but festive tags for you today using the new Deco Star Frame. 

DSC_0013

I gathered all my supplies, especially some glitter paper and gold foil paper. I picked the Pinpoint Main Street Tags set and found it was the perfect size for my Deco Frame.

DSC_0023

I stuck to jewel tones on black glitter paper, but you could use anything glittery, also adding a second tag with an embossed sentiment in gold. If you keep scrolling down, you'll see I didn't waste a cut! I used most every die cut in different color combos.

DSC_0015_wm

3 tags with left over frames in blue, red & green. This time dressed up with jewels and bells!

DSC_0016

One last tag with the white glitter frame on a bright pink glitter card stock. 

DSC_0017_wm

And a last wish for all of you, Merry Christmas from me, and Poppystamps!

Holiday Place Cards
by Robin Tharaldson

Holiday Place Card Full With

I'm not sure how many of you set your holiday table with place cards but my mom and grandmom ALWAYS had place cards! Hopefully it's not another  tradition falling by the wayside. I still use place cards; because I know not to have my Aunt sit next to a certain cousin...not going there!!! I made these super simple place cards using Poppystamps Double Stitch Tags, Tree Line Hill die and Memory Box Open Studio Pinpoint Scalloped Circles!

Holiday Place Card CU1 With

I cut two, of the Pinpoint Scalloped Circles, from white card stock to create the base of my place card. The little piercings around the edge are so pretty!

Holiday Place Card CU2 With

I added a little snow to the Tree Line Hill die cut using Simply White  Nuvo Crystal Drops; just needed a little something. I used the smallest of the Double Stitch Tags dies to create the name tag that slips behind the trees! I added the name using a thick white gel pen!

Holiday Place Card CU3 With

Here's a side view to show you how the place card stands up; you could even put a few chocolates inside!!  The following video shows how to assemble the Holiday Place Card!!

 

I hope you give this simple project a try; I think it would look great using kraft card stock as the background for a more rustic feel!! Thanks for stopping by and check out the Poppystamps Blog for more holiday project ideas!

Holiday Shaker Gift Card Tag
by Robin Tharaldson

Holiday Tags Full With

Well it's official, the Holidays are here, whether we are ready for them or not!!  My super easy shaker tag is great for those last minute, I need a gift now situations!! I'm using the Double Stitch Tags set to create my gift card holder, which could double as a card base; you need to watch my video to see how the inside is put together!!

Holiday Tags With CU1

For the shaker panel I used Simple Pinpoint Snowflake Frame, clear acetate and 1/8" foam strips from Darice! These tiny foam strips made this shaker go together FAST! No more cutting minute foam strips...

Holiday Tags CU2 With

My sentiment, from the Christmas Time stamp set, is inside and holds the gift card!!  The following video will show you just how easy this tag card is to make AND it fits into an A2 envelope!

 

Thanks for stopping by...

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.

Shaker Gift Tags with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier 4

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

DSC_0011

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.

DSC_0016

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.

DSC_0011

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.

DSC_0012

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

DSC_0034

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?

DSC_0031

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

Happy happy Fall, and Happy Halloween!
