Snow Speckle Washi Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0015

Happy Holidays to you! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a card made with the new Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape Poppystamps has available in the store. 

DSC_0018_wm

I've used several of the new dies out this season, plus Mod Poinsettias. And here's a hint on a way to use the wide Washi.

DSC_0024

I covered a red card stock panel with the Washi, and die cut 3 smallest poinsettias. The width makes it easy to cover a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

The touch of softened red with the white dots went nicely with the pastel card. I added white die cut poinsettias, sponged inked with the same aqua behind my Bethlehem scene. The sentiment, O Holy Night was cut down a bit to fit on the bottom.

Hope you enjoyed today's holiday post, and hope your holiday cards are well on their way to being done!

Have a wonderful, Happy, Crafty Holiday!

Merry Christmas Tag
by Marybeth Lopez

 

88C40967-2F45-4A05-9B13-B02604BE7241

Hello friends, Marybeth here today sharing a Christmas tag. As you can see below this beautiful: Poppystamps  Merry Christmas Flourish die is gorgeous on its own! I wanted to show you how it can be altered a bit, very simply.

C5583323-2536-4EB0-B98D-D11F6FEAB14E

Since I wanted to add holly to the Christmas tag I decided to snip off the flourish part of the die, simply by cutting it off in a few places. I will also be making a few tags that are red and white without patterned paper and only the greeting.  This Merry Christmas die can fill up the whole large tag and still make a beautiful tag that can be mass produced, easily.

I used the beautiful 6x6 paper pack from Memorybox. I turned my die so the plaid would be at an angle as shown in the photo above.

FF8CCCC9-A00E-43BA-B1C7-AE1C59F446AC_1_201_a

I also used Double Stitch Tag dies form Poppystamps and the Holly Outline die. I love adding bells to most of my tags at Christmas. Kinda lets me know when someone might be taking a peek :)

For this tag I used the largest tag die my tag is about 3.5 by 5.3

Holiday blog blitz: Spinner santa
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572440796767E12

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.

Watermark1.572440796767E12

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.
Watermark1.572440796767E12

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.

IMG_20191030_141235

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.
IMG_20191030_141235

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.
IMG_20191030_141235

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.
IMG_20191030_141235

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.

Watermark1.572440884597E12

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.

Like I said, you could be the lucky winner of the Whittle Santa Face die. Follow these instructions.

Holiday Blog Blitz: Believe Flourish
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps Novmber Blog Blitz Photo 1 with signature

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you all are enjoying the Holiday Blog Blitz! Today I am sharing with you the Believe Flourish die from the new release. This die is great as a single focal point on a card, but also each component of the die can be separated and used individually just how I used the believe sentiment for today's card.

Today's card is packed with a lot of new dies from the Holiday release which all coordinate and pair wonderfully together. I paired the new Snowglobe kit, townhouses, and dancing snowflake dies together to make the cute winter scene card; leaving the Believe Flourish die as the star of the show!

November Blog Blitz 2

I used silver mirror cardstock from my stash to die cut the flourish and sentiment from the Believe Flourish die. Then I carefully separated the word Believe from the flourish with my scissors and placed it as the sentiment for my card.

November Blog Blitz 4

I just love how shiny the Believe sentiment pops off the card. 

For the snowflake elements on the card I used the Dancing Snowflake tile die similar to how I used the Believe flourish die and die cut the snowflake tile from some white cardstock. I then cut the two middle snowflakes from the die cut piece with my scissors and placed them as background elements on my card. 

November Blog Blitz 3
I love thinking outside of the box and using the Poppystamps dies for more than their intended purpose. Many of the dies can be die cut and the components can be used individually for other purposes within your projects.

Holiday Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

Hi there and welcome to the Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz! The design team will be showcasing some of the new, beautiful dies from the mini Holiday release. All you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win this beautiful and simple to use Snowglobe Kit Craft die

1C51D88B-8804-4BB3-A63F-E54CE6009808_1_201_a

First thing I did was use a blending brush with oxide inks , to make the background  sky. Then I splattered it with my shimmer pen.

D73D5EA4-C35B-444D-9DF7-FF82B8493953_1_201_a

At first I was going to add the fun foam to the back of each snow drift ,then decided to only add it to the largest one so not to have it too thick.

3CF485C0-70A5-43D8-977D-882237A56CFC_1_201_a

I used the circle die to trace a circle just a bit bigger than the inside of the snow globe. I layered the outer frame die about 3 or 4 times. I used craft store fine glitter paper for the snow drifts, then added a bit of chunky glitter, for more snow.

295FD8ED-44AA-4AEA-B2E5-04D11C51DA9F_1_201_a

I colored all my paper with Copic markers.  The trees are made from the Holly Outline Die from Poppystamps . So excited that Memory box will now carry patterned paper !!!! For the snowy backdrop to this card I used Dashing Holiday 6x6 paper pack. I just love those playful deer from last year , I will probably use them every Christmas.

Holiday Blog Blitz Begins!
By Jeanne Jachna

 Snowflake-Peace-Five
What a great day for a visit!  We've got more new release products to share with you and to celebrate we're having a blog blitz.  This is a time we set aside to show you projects made with the new release and give you a chance to win some for yourself!  Today I'm sharing a card made with the new Stained Glass Snowflake Frame die! 

Snowflake-Peace-Two
I love color and couldn't resist ombre shades of blue filling in all those rays of light behind the snowflake. 
Snowflake-Peace-One
I started by cutting the Stained Glass Snowflake Frame from white card stock.  I wanted to be sure the die didn't cut all the way through so I applied packing tape to the back of my card stock panel.  This prevents the die from cutting all the way through.  Next I colored all the rays with Copic markers in shades of blue.  I love Copics because they're easy to refill and I don't run out of my favorite colors. 

Snowflake-Peace-Four


Next I cut the die again from white cardstock and adhered it over the colored panel.   I cut the Stained Glass Snowflake that matches the snowflake on the panel perfectly with gold foil paper and adhered it over the snowflake on the panel.  
Snowflake-Peace-Three
The panel is slightly smaller than a 4.25 x 5.5" card.  To give the panel a finished look I added a Double Stitched Rectangle Frame cut in gold foil.   A few blue gems add a little more sparkle and shine that's always perfect for the holidays.
Snowflake-Peace
Now the part you've been waiting for.. the prize on this post!   Of course it's the Stained Glass Snowflake Window!

Mistletoe and Plaid
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_3718

Hello , Marybeth here today with a simple Poppystamps card, easy for mailing. Once I figured out my design I decided this flat card would be easy to make many and simple to send. I love the red and white Christmas design. Memory box now sells 6X6 paper packs ( so excited ) I chose the red and white plaid paper from the pack to add behind my mistletoe from panel (Dashing Holiday pp1001)

IMG_3704

I folded my card base then opened it up and placed the die where I wanted it and ran it through my die-cutting machine. Then I simply cut a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 piece of patterned paper and placed behind the top of the card.

IMG_3706

I turned it over and added clear tape and some glue for the tiny pieces.

EZy Watermark_21-10-2019_02-35-13PM

I for the berries I used Poppystamps Holly Outline from last year , you could use anything round or even a hole punch.

IMG_3707

As you can see in this top picture I decided to add a few more white berries so that it was either, a group of one ore three.

EZy Watermark_21-10-2019_02-20-20PM

The sentiment set is from also from last year, I love the font and longer narrow alignment of it. It worked well for this card. I lined my envelope with red cardstock to add a bit more detail when opening the card. Looks simple with lots of love and blessing for Christmas.

Blog Blitz: Christmas/Holiday
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0063

Hi there Poppy fans! The Blog Blitz continues with Christmas/Holiday dies. I'd like to present Mistletoe Side Strips and Stencil.

DSC_0043_wm

Noel says it all on the front of a card, doesn't it? And the drama of shimmer black Cardstock and metallic watercolors dress up a card front fit for the holidays! The beauty of Poppy's Side strip die lets you put the mistletoe anywhere your creative juices take you.

DSC_0003

Some time back I purchased a set of Metallic watercolors by Prima. They're a mixture of color and mica and shine when added to any color cardstock.

Mine is black. You can see how vibrant the leaves get when color is applied. And this die imprints the leaves' veins when cut. 

DSC_0005

I added spots of the blue to my leaves, and when dry, the veins of the embossed leaves pop! My sentiment, Festive Noel die was cut from shimmer cardstock too. First, in  black, and watercolored with copper metallic. Then cut with yellow/gold, and finally in red shimmer. This photo show how I added double sided tape to the back of my diecut before inserting the letters and berries.

DSC_0037

Here's a closeup of the die cuts painted, and Nuvo Crystal Drops added. The background insert is loosely watercolored with gold and lavender metallic paint, and I did pop up both sides of the black cardstock with foam.

I masked my letters before splattering white metallic paint. The whole card really shimmers irl!

Shiny Noel
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6269

Happy Holidays! Our amazing double holiday blog blitz is sparkling along, and today, I am sharing a beautiful, easy breezy card with a traditional holiday feel. Our Holiday Blog Blitz began September 19, and just like our Fall/Halloween Blog Blitz, we are offering amazing blog candy and giveaways every day! All you need to do is leave a comment and you could win the die or stamp set featured that day! That's MY idea of a Holiday treat!

IMG_6275

I love all the colors of the winter holidays, but this Festive Noel die has a traditional holiday vibe for me, so I decided to use traditional holiday colors, red and green foil paper! I cut the Festive Noel twice, once in red and once in silver. I then cut the Holly Vine Sidekick Frame out of green foil, then carefully pieced everything together against a light silvery white glitter background. I must have tried a dozen different background papers until I found the one that was just right for this project. This color combination works for me, and all that shiny foil reminds me of vintage holiday ornaments and decorations. The Festive Noel fits perfectly in the frame of the Holly Vine.

Now it's your chance to win this amazing Festive Noel die to add to your holiday collection. Simply leave a comment on THIS post before midnight on October 2, and you might be selected to receive a special gift from your Poppystamps Secret Santa! Winners will be announced October 4th.
