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!

Neighborhood Home
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

All of here at Poppystamps would like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! So many of us travel during the holidays that I thought this brand new Neighborhood Home Pop-Up Easel Set would be the perfect die set to feature today. The beautiful and intricate details in all of these teeny tiny dies create a stunning home adorned in fresh fall  colors. Take a look!


I began with a crisp white base and cut the scored card base pieces and assembled the easel card. If you already love creating with Poppystamps Pop-Up Easel sets, you'll love the ease of this pretty neighborhood home.


I cut the back house panel in a very light gray, to show off the bright pops of colors in a vivid Autumn palette. The details you can create are amazing! You can cut tiny windows and frames, curtains, window boxes, and mix and match elements. I went with golden yellow curtains in all the square windows, and brown window boxes underneath. I originally planned on lille fall flowers in the window boxes, but I really loved the look of the pretty curtains and empty boxes, as if the boxes had already been put to bed for the summer.


Once all of the window panels, curtains, and window boxes were in place, I added the Soaring Tree Frame in brown along the side. I cut a handful of autumn leaves out of the Leafy Branch Oval. When the card is complete, the shape of the card allows it to stand freely, making a charming 3D fall home.


Thank you all so much for joining us today, as we are grateful for all of you in our Poppystamps family.








Bold Thanks
by Tricia Barber


Hello all!  Tricia here with you today to share some old school techniques for the current Poppystamps Challenge.  I have two for you today: ink smooshing and using your dies to create backgrounds. It is so much fun to get out your inks and ink smooshing up a bunch of backgrounds.  I generally use three colors for an A2 panel and you want to use colors that are close to each other on the color wheel, otherwise you will have muddy brown!   I think dye inks give the best results and use a surface that will allow you to ink directly on like a glass mat.   I start by watering down an A2 watercolor panel.   Using three different areas on your surface, stamp the ink pad directly down and then add some water.   The ink and water will bead up and then you can start to pounce your cardstock thru the three inks.  I use my heat tool to dry in between pouncing.  This gives a great layering of the various colors on the panel. For my card today, I used Distress Inks in Lumberjack Plaid, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.  Once satisfied with the color of the panel, then I used my heat tool to fully dry the panel. I die cut my panel with the Luscious Script Thanks and die cut the shadow from black cardstock.  I used liquid glue to adhere to each other.  



To make my background, I have used another old school technique, using die cuts!   I love finding creative ways to use my dies.  I die cut from white cardstock using the smallest and the middle die from Brilliant Rings to create my background.  With the smaller die, I die the center out of each of the middle die cut circles.  I then layered onto the card base with liquid adhesive.  




I stamped a sentiment from Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit and added some Fairy Drops to finish it off!   What are some of your favorite Old School techniques?  Share your card with us and link up your design on the Poppystamps post here.  A winner will be chosen at random of the Old School PSC#108 challenge, see the challenge post for more details.   You have until 12 am US EST on September 28 to play along!

Thankful Bouquet of Flowers
by Rachel Duong


Hi it's Rachel here with a bouquet of beautiful flowers using the Poppystamps "Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set" and "Thank You Moonlight Script" dies! Not only is this a fun-shaped card, it opens and stands on its own in true easel fashion!


Tons of flower dies come included in the die set. Depending on color choices and techniques, this set can take on so many different possibilities. 


After I die cut the pieces in cream colored card stock, I ink blended the various blossoms, leaves and vase in shades of blue and yellow-oranges. I lightly curled up and down the flower edges. 


I glued down the pieces after much arranging and rearranging until I found a composition that felt pleasing to my eyes!

Now the card is opened, a Poppystamps  "Thank You Moonlight Script" die cut sentiment appears! "Fairy Jewels" are gorgeous accents and act as a stopper for the card to rest on.
Look a little  closer, you will see a few jewels on the front too!

The script die also comes with a matching shadow die. I left it off, but either way will look great.  Ivory twine finishes the card.

The Poppystamps "Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set" is one of my favorites. I can't wait to try more color schemes and designs. 

Let me know if you have any questions about this card. I would love to hear from you. Until my next post, may you have many crafty days between now and then!

Challenge Reminder ~ Flower Garden, Garden Kindness
by Rachel Duong


Hi, it's Rachel here with a spring card for the Poppystamps May Challenge-"Flower Garden!" The absolutely adorable Poppystamps "Whittle Happy Fox" and "Whittle Beaver" are joining in to say "Thanks for being kind".  We can never have too much kindness in the world! The "Leafy Vine Corner" die helps to showcase the beautiful spring day too. How is your spring going so far? I am gardening and cardmaking every day, two of my favorite things to do. 


These are the supplies I used for my card. The "Lucky Layered Flowers " dies and the "Layered Pointy Petals"  dies go perfectly on the "Leafy Vine Corner". The "Modest Banner Greetings Hot Foil Plate" is a must have. I use it all the time and looks great on everything! The "Heart Jumble" die makes a great  embellishment cut out in metallic gold. Save the extra hearts!


Steps to create this card.
1. Die cut the pieces in medium weight white cardstock.
2. Ink blend all using a mix of distress and distress oxide inks. Mask off the white portions of the fox before ink blending. The above picture shows another option to cut apart and color each individual piece of the fox.
3. Color the noses with a black marker.


4. Adhere the flowers to the vine.
5. Hot foil and die cut the "Thanks for being kind" sentiment.


6. Cut an A2 cardfront in vellum.
7. Using a black Sharpie pen, scribble over the vellum.
8. Drop isoprophyl alcohol over the pen. Use a paintbrush to move color around.
9. Glue vellum onto white card base.


10. Die cut the "Hearts Jumble" die. Use any type of paper that you like. I used a leftover brown heart that was embossed in gold!
11. Adhere the pieces to the card front to finish the card. What a cute duo!


Come along and join the challenge with your Poppystamps "Flower Garden" creation. Don't forget to link it up in the challenge section. I hope you love this card as much as I do. Pairing Poppystamps critters and flowers together are such a happy combination. They look so peaceful and relaxed. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the warmer weather this time of year!

Thank You Bouquet

Hi and welcome! I'm on the blog today with a thank you card. Do you have someone special you want to thank? Poppystamps has the most amazing dies to create that very special card for that very special person in your life.


I recently celebrated a birthday and my daughter gifted me 2 Disneyland rose bushes! She knows flowers are mommy's passion!


To begin I gathered all my floral elements and background die. 


Truly the fun begins as you put together the bouquet, placing each hand crafted flower right where you want it.


I gave my tiny flowers and petals of larger ones dimension  with a foam mat and ball head tool. Love this look, but you might have to make your own envelope to allow for card thickness.

A special thank you for a special daughter. Hope your day is filled with beauty and joy!
