Challenge Reminder: CAS Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here again today with a reminder to enter in the Merry & Bright December challenge! We are looking for projects that make the holidays your favorite time of year. For me, it is the "Joy" of the season so I made a CAS Joy Christmas card. Hope it inspires you to give it a try.

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier 1

I used the Seed Snowflake Joy Craft Die for the main focal point on my card.

I then used the Seed Snowflake Outline Die as an accent behind the letters.  The Tidings Of Joy Clear Stamp set works perfectly with Seed Snowflake Joy Die to create the sentiment for my card.

The rules are simple and you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!! For all the details click HERE!  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

See you next time!

Northern Holiday
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5861-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could drop by for a visit! Snowy December is certainly here, so today I am sharing a snowy winter scene! Take a look at this Northern Holiday!

IMG_5859-wm

I started by creating a background of blended distress oxide inks spritzed with water for a soft, fuzzy look. I have fallen in love with our collection of whittle animals, so I used this adorable Whittle Fox against the soft white of thicker watercolor paper. I think he really stands out. Add a few stars from the All Star Collage and you have a sweet winter scene.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Silhouette of the Forest Stag
by Donna Peachey

Hello, my name's Donna and I'm the newest addition to the Poppystamps team.

With Christmas fast approaching, I thought it might be nice to share a card design that is fairly easy to mass produce and suits more than one occasion.

And what's more, as I've chosen to use the strong, bold silhouette of the Forest Stag I've been able to introduce a grunge element, too!

Want to know how it's made?

Here's a quick 'how to' guide...

Snapseed 2

Start by applying ink to a scrap of card that is roughly this size and shape.

  Snapseed

Here are the colours you will be using.  I went back in with a finger dauber to add a little more shadow once I had the stag cut out.

Cut out the Wooded Glen Landscape and trim it to size to fit your card front.

  Snapseed 3

Then, cut out the Simple Holly Vine Frame and a piece of black card that is a little taller and wider all 'round.

  Snapseed 4

Add the grunge element!  I'm using stamps from the Studio Blotter set.  Stamp first in Hickory Smoke, then add Delicata 'Brown Shimmer' just around the edges.

Assemble the card and add a few sequins.

It's as easy as that!

Whether you see this as a Christmas, Birthday or some other Winter occasion card is entirely up to you.

Which will it be, I wonder?

Christmas Shaker Gift Tags
by Nadine Carlier

Shaker Gift Tags with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here and this year I decided I wanted to make my own gift tags instead of buying them and since I love shaker cards I decided to make shaker tags. Poppystamps has so lots of tiny dies that fit perfectly inside of the Pinpoint Shaker Ornament die.

I think these Tiny Fawns are one of my favorite dies. I just added a little ink to them to give them a little more dimension.

Of course, I also had to have a Santa's Sleigh in one of the shakers too.

For my third shaker tag, I used the Whittle Snowman and Whittle Trees.

Heartfelt Christmas Joy
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0022

Hi! It's my turn to bring you some Poppystamps inspiration, and I have a Christmas card with some of the fun new holiday dies.

DSC_0010

There are 3 frame dies that fit perfectly together. Here's what I did with them.

DSC_0003

1st from watercolor cardstock, I cut all 3 frame die cuts.

DSC_0007

I used my Zig Clean Color Pens to color the images inside the frames, but not coloring the frames themselves. Wetting the images with water first allows the colors to blend and bleed into each other, which is the effect I was going for.

DSC_0014

Once dry, the 3 frames were glued together and added to my watercolored background, that was flicked with white and aqua paint.

DSC_0015

I added some sheer shimmer spray and a few rainstones. It is a holiday card after all, and the more shimmer the better!

DSC_0019

Enjoy the rest of your week. Hope it's full of crafty goodness!

Simple Holiday Card
by Robin Tharaldson

Simple Holiday Card Sept29 Full With

Not much goes according to plan in life and that's where I am with having all my holiday cards done by now! Our home renovation is going to take much longer than planned so I don't have much room to craft and I realize I was totally spoiled with my old craft room. Seed Snowflake Joy die to the rescue!! This die, from Poppystamps 2018 Holiday, has made my card making a snap!

Simple Holiday Card Sept29 CU3 With

The die is one piece so it's EASY to use and cuts like butter! Not to mention the snowflake is beautiful! I can see using this die as a shaker (if you have time) or perhaps using silver glitter card stock behind; which is what I wanted to use but could not find my silver paper...magine that!

The following video will show you how easy and quick this card was to put together!

Merry Tags Card
by Robin Tharaldson

Sept22 Merry Full With

 

My project for today is featuring more products from Poppystamps 2018 Holiday release! If you haven't checked out the new dies and stamps just click HERE! For my tags I used the stencil that comes with Pinpoint Snowflake Sidekick Frame die set! What a great addition and so many uses!! My tags are framed using the smallest die from Stitchwork Rectangle Frames die set. 

Sept22 Merry CU2 NO

I have once again created a card that uses an A-10 (business) format; just a different look and still uses a first class stamp! As long as it isn't too heavy or exceeds 1/4" thick, lol! This size lets you be really creative with composition and design!

Sept22 Merry CU1 With

To finish my card I used Liquid Pearls to create the look of falling snow; I would much rather have just flicked some white paint, but we are still in the middle of a remodel and I can't find my white paint...along with a few other crafting necessities!

The following video will show you how this card goes together!

Believe in the Magic
by Jeanne Jachna

Believe-Three

I hope you're having a great weekend!  My favorite way to relax is with crafting.  When the dishes are put away and everyone is gone it's time to unwind.
Believe-Five

The holidays are right around the corner and I've got my mind on cards to send to family and friends.   Last year I was loving pink for snowy skies.. I think I'm leaning more toward purples this year!  
Believe
I created a distress background of  Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.  I covered the entire panel in Milled Lavender and then went in around the edges with Seedless Preserves.  I splattered the panel with water, some watered down Seedless Preserves and some white ink.   Next I adhered the panel to my card base. 
Believe-Four

Next I die cut a white card stock panel with the Wooded Glen Landscape.  I ran it through my die cut machine a second time to cut out the Believe Fresh Script.  I adhered this white die cut panel to the distress ink panel.  To give it a finished look I added a die cut Pointed Rectangle Frame. 
Believe-Three

Now for the fun part.. embellishing!  I assembled a little Winter Cabin to add to the scene.  I added distress ink to the die cut to bring out the impression of the logs that the cabin is made of.
Believe-Two
I stacked circles of different sizes in shades of yellow for a big full moon.. and of course.. Santa's Sleigh!   Can you imagine some children inside the cabin waiting for his arrival?   I hope they're being very good! 
Believe-One
A peaceful snowy scene that ALMOST has me wishing for winter..  almost.  LOL!  Have a great weekend! Jeanne Floral Signature copy

Poinsettia Joy
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0065

Hello, my Poppy friends! I'm up today with a card made with the new Mod Poinsettias. Three dies come in this set, 3 sizes, perfect for stacking.

DSC_0043

I cut the trio of blooms several times. Just to let you know, after cutting, I ran through my die cut machine again with my rubber pads to show the petal details.

DSC_0046

With Ranger's Festive Berries Distress Ink, I sponged on color. Heavier in the center, and touching the tips a bit stronger too.

I also inked a couple of die cuts in Lucky Clover for the leaves.

DSC_0070

Lots of stacked poinsettias with leaves and green rhinestones in different sizes.

DSC_0063

A simple joy sentiment popped up a bit with foam, from Poppy's Joy Outline die.

And another holiday card done! 

Hope you enjoyed today's post, and hope you're loving all the new holiday dies Poppystamps has for you!
