Have you checked out all of the sweet bunnies in the Poppy shop? My goodness, so much cuteness to choose from! I've picked out two sets to share with you today. One on this card and one for a fun little bonus project! But first, lets break down how this card went together, shall we?

The Circling Frame was cut using light yellow paper. I added an adhesive to the back so that all of the pieces would stay intact.

Next came the bunnies cut from white cardstock. A little Copic coloring was added to their ears, nose and eyes.

They needed something to nibble on, as all bunnies do. Greenery from the Floral Vase Pop Up set worked perfectly.

Again... aren't they just the sweetest pair! Okay, now for that bonus project.

A cutie little tag attached to some chocolate bunnies for our Sweet P! I used the Whittle Panda Pick Up, popped in one of the Bunny Face die cuts for a driver, added a Spring Banner and her initial from the Marzipan Alphabet.

Holiday Thanks!by Tricia Barber


With the holidays, it's nice to have on hand holiday cards to give gift cards. I have my holiday message on the front of the card using the Seed Snowflake Joy die and then inside I created a gift card holder with the Thank You Stitched Tag die. I started with a plain white A2 panel.  I die cut the panel with the Seed Snowflake Joy Die.  I then used a smaller panel of thinner cardstock or computer paper and marked where the JOY showed through. I then layered strips of brightly colored cardstock across the smaller panel.  This panel was then layered underneath the white die cut panel.   I added a red jewel to the center of the snowflake using the Bright Jewels for a little sparkle.  


On the inside of the panel, I repeated the cardstock strip pattern onto the Thank You Stitched Tag die and die cut the panel with the tag.  I added some holly leaves from the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Set.  I die cut the Thank You sentiment from gold cardstock using the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  I added adhesive to three sides of the tag and left the top open to hold the gift card.  I used tape runner adhesive versus foam adhesive for the tag to minimize the bulk of the inside panel.  


So simple and easy to create multiples!  Perfect for teacher, postal worker  or delivery drivers or anyone that you need to share a holiday thank you!  Beautifully decorated inside and out!   Happy Holidays!

You are the Sweetest
by Janet Katz

Valentine pinned heart1

Today's your lucky day! Even though it's Friday, the 13th, I'm serving up this colorful, glittery Valentine's card. I started with the new Vintage Scalloped Heart die set. I love that this comes with 2 dies: the heart with the 'sunburst' slits in it, and the bigger scalloped heart background. I cut the heart from fine, red glitter paper, and contrasted that with a brushed gold cardstock for the scalloped shadow.
I wanted something different for the background so I turned to my trusty spray stains and created a background on watercolor paper with two blue-green colors and a brown. I heat dried the paper between color layers. For a final touch, and to tie in the brushed gold look, I spritzed my paper with gold metallic spray. I cut that piece down just a bit and matted it on the piece of brushed gold cardstock I used to cut the scalloped heart from - yay for no waste. I glued this onto an 80lb vanilla card base.
I also wanted a unique way to attach a sentiment. I decided on some metal embellishments - heart charms and tiny safety pins. I stamped the You are the Sweetest from the Colorful Life stamp set on a piece of vanilla cardstock with Versafine black ink, cut it out, and then rounded all four corners. I punched a tiny hole in the top left corner and ran the safety pin with the dangling heart on it through the hole. To tie in the red, I added 3 gems from the Christmas Fairy Jewels pack. I decided to use my trusty foam adhesive to give dimension both under the heart and under the sentiment. I did not glue down the little dangling heart, but I could because it has a flat back.

December Challenge: Gift It!
by Michele K. Henderson



Hello Crafty Friends,

We are thrilled that you've stopped by today to check out our latest challenge, Gift It! There's still time to play along and create a charming holiday tag using a Poppystamps die or stamp. Your tag could be randomly selected to win a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on your latest must-haves from the Poppystamps store! Get all the details and see even more Gift It inspiration, like the bright tags from this month's special guest designer, Nancy Salked on the original post right  here!


I used a few brand new Poppystamps dies to create this sweet reindeer trio of tags! I started with my tag base cut in a cheerful blue, then added the Snowflake Loop in crisp snowy white!


I cut a combination of trees in wintery pine and spruce colors, and arranged three trees on each tag. I created three different reindeer in warm winter hats and antlers, and assembled them all into the cheerful tag trio. All of the trees, reindeer, and adorable little hats are all from the Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit.



A few sparkly Fairy Jewels and some twine and these tags are ready to shine on gifts for my family. These little reindeer would look sweet in tiny pink hats too!



From all of here at Poppystamps, we wish you the happiest of holidays and the merriest of crafty days for 20223!

Thanks so much for joining us today!










A Christmas Tag and Reindeer Treat Holder
by Janet Katz

The new Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit has so much to offer. Here are two projects I made with it:
While the kit dies are a blast to mix and match, don't overlook the tiny little stamp set that comes with the kit. On it is a tiny tree along with an outline of that tree. I put the two to work on a store-bought white tag with a gold hole reinforcer. I pulled together a rainbow of dye ink pads and stamped a row of colorful trees in rainbow order on the long edge of the tag. Next, I used black ink to stamp the outline on top of the colorful trees.
I purposefully offset the outline to give it a modern edge. I have recently seen a lot of tags that use a layer of vellum over a cardstock layer. I cut a piece of vellum cardstock (you can buy this heavyweight vellum on Amazon or at many online craft retailers) to the same dimensions as the tag and then stamped a sentiment from the Gilded Christmas Wishes stamp set in black ink. With a little more time, I could have heat embossed the sentiment in black. I punched a hole in the vellum tag and attached the two with a deep pink grosgrain ribbon and cinched that with some teal and white baker's twine. This took just a few minutes to put together.
For my reindeer treat holder, I started with a piece of 2" x 5.75" kraft cardstock, I scored it at 2.75" and then at 3" to provide a .25" gusset for my chocolate treat square.

I used a corner rounder punch to round the corners. I used a little slot punch to punch a rectangular hole for the ribbon. Next, I cut a 1.75" x 2.25" piece from a pale blue polka-dotted paper. Then I used one of the dies that came with the Gilded Christmas Wishes stamp and die set to cut a tag shape from a dusty navy blue cardstock. A circle punch would have worked for this piece also. I die cut my reindeer head from brown cardstock, the nose from red cardstock, and the hat from the Memory Box Christmas Jolly 6 x 6 paper pad (PP1019.) I layered it all together and attached it to the kraft base keeping the hole at the top. Finally, I stamped in black ink on white cardstock and cut out the "Cheers my deer" sentiment that comes with the kit and adhered it below the deer head. I folded it up at the score lines and slipped my treat inside (a little double stick tape on the back of the treat wrapper will keep it from sliding out). I finished it with a small piece of white grosgrain ribbon cinched with both blue and white baker's twine and linen thread.
