Hello everyone! Have you started your Christmas card collection? The Christmas Blog Blitz is in full swing and I've got some fun inspiration for you, plus a chance to win the cute Whittle Santa face die. Read all the way to the end for info.

Since this santa die is symmetrical I imediately thought to make a spinner card. So i die cut the santa twice and colored it with Copics. The 4 die cut pieces are easy to assemble.

I used my adhesive runner on the back of one santa and made sure the silver thread was possitioned in the middle. I then put glue on the back of the other and attached them back to back.

The gorgeous patterned paper is from Memory Box and I die cut a circle that fits the santa. I then aligned with the card base to insure the holes would match.

With my adhesive runner I then made sure the silver thread and santa was secured in the middle of the hole on the card base.

Then I placed the patterned paper over the base and finished off with a frame cut from silver glitter cardstock. I also used another Memory Box paper for the inside of the card as a backer for the santa.

From the same dottet paper I cut the shadow of the Holiday Joy, and the word itself was cut from the same silver glitter cardstock.

Now all you have to do is turn the little santa, close the card and put it in the envolope and you'll be sure to bring a happy smile to the face of someone special.

Blog Blitz: Merry Christmas
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-1

Hi there Poppy Friends! The Holiday Blog Blitz is continuing today, and I am showcasing the fun new Townhouses die set. I will have more information about how you can win this wonderful die set at the bottom of my post. Let's get started with my card, shall we?

IMG_5165

I started my card by ink blending Distress Oxide Ink in Peacock Feathers at the top of my card panel. I then die cut the Merry Christmas Flourish sentiment from white cardstock and attached it to the top of my card panel. I am creating a slim line card today. My card panel measures 3 x 8 inches with my overall card measuring 3.5 x 9 inches. 

IMG_5166

Next, I used the Stitched Hills die set and die cut my hills from white cardstock. I attached the hills to my card panel with foam adhesive so my ground/hills would have some dimension.

IMG_5170

For my houses I used the Townhouses and Village Houses, and for my trees I used the Whittle Trees die sets . I die cut them from white cardstock and then used my Distress Oxide Ink sponges to add ink to the homes and tress. I didn't add any fresh ink to my sponges, I just used the "left over" ink that was left on my sponges from another project. I find this works well for small die cuts and when I don't want the color too intense. 

IMG_5171

I also added a small strip of yellow cardstock behind my houses for the light in the windows.

IMG_5175

Next, I began adding my houses to my card front. I used both liquid glue and foam adhesive, keeping some houses flat while other are raised.

I also tucked in some Whittle Trees around my houses. I love how all of these dies work so well together to help build your scene.

To finish my card, I attached everything to my slim line card base. This is a fun card size to build a scene on and it can be mailed in a standard sized business envelope without any extra postage.

And now for the part you've been waiting for! You could win this gorgeous and versatile Townhouses die set!

Magic In The Night
by Jeanne Jachna

Magic-In-The-Night
Hi friends!  It's Jeanne here today and I'm sharing a sparkly Halloween card.  Halloween really is my favorite holiday.  As a child there was no other night that was as magical and mysterious!   I got to roam the neighborhood in disguise... AT NIGHT!!!  and get treats from every house I visited!   Now that I'm grown it still captures my imagination!  The neighborhood comes alive and  I love seeing the kids dressed as superheros, storm troopers, princesses and more. 
Magic-In-The-Night-Three
My card captures a visit to the pumpkin patch on a chill night.. the sky is dark (and sparkly with stars).. .. did you hear that?   Are the spirits haunting  or is it just a black cat hunting field mice in the night?   
Magic-In-The-Night-Six
This card starts with the Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Fame cut from white cardstock.   I colored the pumpkins and vines with Copic markers.  You can use any brand you like.. the reason I favor Copics is because I color ALOT.  Copic markers are easy to refill  so I never have to buy a new marker.   
Magic-In-The-Night-Five
I wanted LOTS of CONTRAST so I decided to layer the colored die cut over a panel of ombre blue distress ink.    Orange and blue are opposite each other on the color wheel making them COMPLIMENTARY.  This means that together they have the strongest contrast.   The panel is inked in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink.  It's splattered with water to add some depth.  Next I adhered double sided adhesive to the distress panel and topped it with the colored Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Frame. 
Magic-in-the-Night-Two
I stamped the sentiment from the Pumpkin Patch Clear Stamp Set on the panel and inserted it into the frame.  A sprinkle of clear crystal fine glitter pressed into the remaining exposed adhesive adds lots of sparkle and shine! 
Magic-In-The-Night-One
The Pumpkin Patch Sidekick Frame also includes a few extra pumpkin die cuts.  I colored a few and adhered them with adhesive foam tape over the pumpkins on the frame.  A Whittle Ghost and Black Whittle Cat make this scene more fun!
Magic-In-The-Night-Four
I hope this Halloween brings back some magical memories for you, and that you create some new ones to reflect on  in coming years!  Hugs to you!

Blog Blitz Window Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello! Nadine here with a window Christmas card I created for the Poppystamps Winter/Holiday Blog Blitz.  I used several of the new 2019 Holiday release dies on my card.  Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to see how you can WIN the Cottage Window die that I used on my card.

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier 1

To create the background, I ran a brown ink over a woodgrain embossing folder and then embossed a tan piece of cardstock. Then I die cut out the Cottage Window in brown cardstock, added some foam tape to the back of the window frame and attached a piece of white cardstock and then more foam tape to the back and adhered it to the front of my card. The shutters of the window I added some foam tape and slide them behind the frame of the window. 

I die cut out the dove from the Dove and Olive Branch and two of Holiday Mistletoes from white cardstock. Then colored the mistletoes with some Copic markers and airbrushed some light grey Copic onto the dove. The olive branch from the Dove and Olive Branch, I cut several times using green cardstock.  The Christmas Tree in the window, I cut out using the Whittle Trees die that is from the 2018 Holiday release.

Challenge reminder Anything goes
by Tina Wilstrup


Watermark1.567069031912E12

Hi there Poppy fans, are you playing along with the September challenge? I hope you are! It's an easy one - Anything goes - and here's a reminder with my inspiration. Having just sent our old boy across the rainbow bridge I knew I had to use the Whittle dog along with this sentiment.

Watermark1.567068860121E12

I started by cutting the Hearts trio show case die from a leftover piece of yupo paper that I made a while ago. I used Copic re-inkers RV04, RV02 and RV00. From the same piece I also cut the Whittle dog. For just the slightest contrast I die cut the Hearts trio die and the largest of the Pointed rectangle frames from a white shimmer cardstock.

Watermark1.567068980892E12

I placed the large frame as well as the white panel. I adhered the small frames from white shimmer cardstock using a T-ruler to align them and then inserted the yupo paper pieces. I stamped the sentiment from Whittle everyday stamp set in a matching pink ink and adhered the Whittle dog.

Watermark1.567068860121E12

So there you have it. I decided to keep it simple. It felt right given the circumstances.

I hope I have inspired you and to play along! We always love seeing what you create, and you might win a $20 gift certificate to the store!

Party Animal Card
by Nadine Carlier

Party Animal Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello there Poppystamps fans! Nadine here and I am sharing a fun party animal card with you today.  When I was trying to figure out what to make I saw this scrap piece of burlap sitting on my table and I immediately thought it would make a fun background for the cute Poppystamps Whittle animal dies.  I have never used burlap on a card like this before, it was pretty easy to do I just cut it into a square and adhered it down.

I die cut out the Weeping Willow Branch in dark green cardstock and adhered it to top of the card over the burlap.  For the Whittle Monkey, I die cut him out in dark brown cardstock and also a beige cardstock, cut out his face, tummy, and ears from the beige cardstock and adhered them to the dark brown. Then I wrapped his tail around the vine of the Weeping Willow.

For the Whittle Lion and the Whittle Tiger, I cut them both out in yellow-orange color cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them in a little.  The Whittle Tiger I decided to have her sit on the larger of the two Whittle Mounds.

I then cut out the Whittle Oval Wood Frames, once using dark brown cardstock and again using white cardstock.  I used the dark brown for the frame itself and used the inner part from the white to stamp the sentiment "Have Fun You Party Animal" from the Whittle Everyday Stamp Set.  Then die cut some of the Cheery Cardinals and adhered them around the frame on the Weeping Willow Branch.

After I adhered all the Whittle Animals on my card I felt it still needed a little more so got out my airbrush machine and airbrushed on some Copics on the burlap, animals, and sentiment.  Then my card was complete! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
