Hi there , it will be Christmas before you know it! If you need some quick  and easy cards , this might just work for you. Easy to mail as well.

I used Poppystamps dies and stamps, along with glitter paper and die  from memory box, all linked below.

I chose these monotone colors from the Holiday Glitter Pad. I used the lightest colors for the trees and the mail panel. There are many beautiful colors in that pad.

The trees came out very nicely with the metal shim from Poppystamps.

I love that the memory box Wrapped Stitch looks so elegant on the paper, it comes with five different sizes . I used the second largest.

some of my trees are layered for a bit of depth and because I had extra, still nice for mailing .

I hope every one here in USA has a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving, May God bless you all everywhere!

Christmas Snowglobe
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0009

Greetings Poppy Peeps! There's a crispness in the air, signalling my favorite time of year... Christmas! Sending and receiving holiday cards are a tradition I cherish. today I'm sharing a card I made with several Poppystyamps dies and their new holiday paperback. 

DSC_0001 2_wm

All products will be listed at the bottom of this post. One extra special new one,  is the designer paper with the gold thread used as the base for my card.

I chose to use several shimmer card stocks for the snowglobe and house. Just that extra sheen is so festive! The snowglobe includes the snowy layers, perfect for tucking in the main elements.

The snowy sky is the reverse of one of the designer papers in the pack. Really, the only stamping was the embossed sentiment on the base of the snowglobe. Everything else is die cut!

DSC_0005

Look closely to see I did cut a darker color for each of  the white snowflakes, so they'd stand out against the plaid. The trees too. You might notice too, I die cut the ring of the snowglobe 3 times and glued them together for dimension. The base is built up with foam.

I hope you found some inspiration today. Christmas scenes are so much fun to create, especially with all the darling dies Poppy has for the holidays. Hope your week is extra crafty!

Galaxy Christmas
by Sue McRae

20201114_132438c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a Christmas card using a galaxy sky background for the cute Simple Lantern Oval die.

20201114_132511c

This is my first attempt at making a galaxy sky with Distress Inks and I have to say it was a lot of fun!

20201114_143654c

I took white cardstock and pounced and blended a few Distress Ink colours randomly over the panel. I added pink and purples first, then light blues and darker blues and finally black. And yes, it looks like a hot mess when you're starting out (as you can see in the pic) and it doesn't matter if you have blotches because as you continue to add colours it evens out and some sort of dark night sky magic happens.

20201110_212626c

When I was happy with the inking, I mixed Perfect Pearls with water and flicked it on the panel and let it dry. Then I did the same with white paint and blue metallic paint and these became the stars and/or snow! Totally up to you! It really adds to creating depth in the night sky!

20201114_132524c

I die cut the Simple Lantern Oval 4 times from black cardstock and layered them. I added a piece of glitter cardstock behind the lantern for a little sparkle.

For the scene, the house and tree were die cut from white linen cardstock and for the snow I die cut the Whittle Cloud Border from white pearl foil paper from the Polished Foil Pad.

20201114_132547c

The Holly Merry Christmas was die cut from the same sparkly platinum cardstock found in the Holiday Glitter Pad.

20201114_132443c

I hope you get inky and try making your own galaxy background and incorporate it into one of your Christmas cards!

Wishing you a crafty week!

Christmas Lantern
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0002

Hello! Nancy here, and I have a Christmas card for you today. Poppystamps has some gorgeous new holiday dies in the store, and I thought I'd bring you some inspiration with one or 2 of them.

DSC_0005_wm

Simple Lantern Oval is one of the new craft dies, and I paired it with another newbie, a sentiment die called, Snowy Merry Christmas.

DSC_0154

Here's a shot of what I did... I knew I wanted to use some of the new Memory Box designer papers with the gold running through, and chose this black and white plaid. Then I die cut the lantern die 4 times, once with black glitter paper, and 3 times with plain black cardstock. I traced one of the ovals on white and cut it out by hand.

DSC_0158

The white oval was given a glow with some Squeezed Lemon Oxide Ink before gluing the lantern layers together, with the glitter on top. Kinda looks like the lantern is all 'aglow'. I cut the 'merry Christmas' sentiment 3 times from glitter card stock and carefully cut the white snow off the merry, before adding it to the top of the black layer.

DSC_0004

I love how the red shadow gives it a nice pop of color!

DSC_0165

Speaking of pop, you can see how all those layers gives dimension to the card.

It's September folks, time to get a move on those holiday cards! Check out all the new dies, stamps and cardstock in the Poppystamps store. Have a great week!

Stained Glass Angel
Candice Crawford

IMG_2403

Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing on the blog another holiday card from the new release.  This card is using the new Stained Glass Angel die.  To start, you will first need to create your background layer. Sponge on Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink onto a 3.5 inch x 4.5 inch piece of white cardstock.

D828C072-EFEF-44C7-A130-22B55BAD8BEC-C28E9B81-BA6C-47BA-AFB0-F36C6D5058A0

Add some water splatters then dry off the splatters with a piece of paper towel. Next add some white paint splatters using a whait craft paint, water and a paint brush. 

A9883782-8955-463B-965B-78D0BF25BD06-29A3E340-00EC-4427-B0F1-0D0F93180624

Now die cut the stained glass angel image from the die 3 times using white, silver and gold card stock. From the white card stock piece, you will only need the angel pieces from the die. From the gold card stock, you will only need to save the halo. You will use the entire frame outline of the image from the silver card stock. 

6BB411B3-A20A-423A-BC37-F71545485DDF-B86D7997-61C2-4A29-A073-99B8F5FFE8FD

Next die cut a 4.25 x 5.5. inch silver stitched border frame using the Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die from Memory Box. 

To assemble your card, first add the silver trimmings border to a white card base using liquid adhesive. Next adhere your stained glass angle frame to your distress inked background with your choice of adhesive. I find spray adhesive works well on intricate frame pieces such as this one.

Now paper piece your angel together using the die cut white and gold angle and halo pieces. Next adhere your focal image to the center of your card using some 3M foam tape. Finally stamp your sentiment from the new Christmas quotes sentiment set and pop that sentiment onto the card with foam tape.

I hope you all have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!
