Challenge Reminder Halloween Treats
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0011

Hello, my Poppy friends! Nancy here, with a reminder that Poppy has a challenge going on, with a chance for you to win a gc to the Poppystamps store!

I made a trio of tagged candy bags for the grandkids, and used the Halloween Costume Cats stamp and die set.

DSC_0016

All 3 tags were die cut from black cardstock, decorated, with a bright contrasting tag behind. 

Candy Bag 1 features the sweet pair of kittens in a pumpkin.

DSC_0011

Time to get out the stash of Halloween themed ribbon and washi and enjoy decorating cards and tags.

The tag is connected to my bag of treats with a clothespin thats been 'washied' with trick or treat tape. 3 ribbons form my simple junk bow.

DSC_0012

My treat bags are simple acetate bags that show off the contents.

DSC_0034

I did my tags and bags assembly line, cutting and coloring everything first, then assembling my cats on the black tags cut with Poppy's Leafy wreath die. Don't you love the colorful window of leaves?

DSC_0031

Leaves and Scary things is your challenge. Can't wait to see what you create! Play all month!

Happy happy Fall, and Happy Halloween!

Art Deco Holiday
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5652-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today, and play along in our Holiday Happenings Blog Blitz! Every day, from October 11-21, our amazing Poppystamps designers will share beautiful holiday inspiration and ideas! All you have to do is leave a comment on each post that offers a prize that you'd like to win! If this is your first time here, be sure to check back and leave comments on the posts you may have missed. Winners will be announced on the Poppystamps Blog October 24th.

IMG_5650-wm

Take a look at our new release, and you will find beautiful Art Deco frames and shapes. Art Deco is decorative style that first came into vogue right before before WWI. One of its earliest influences came from the luxurious and exotic patterns of ancient Egypt. Over the years, Art Deco evolved into many forms, sometimes contrasting, sometimes harmonious. My favorite, however, is Art Deco at its earliest, reflecting high style and the finest materials.

IMG_5641

I began my Art Deco Holiday card by first creating a rich, faux marble background out of alcohol inks and YUPO paper. I used shades of green and dripped and blended the wet inks until they looked like my artsy version of Connemara marble, known for its "40 shades of green." Then I cut the Deco Victor Square, and the Stitchwork Square Frame out of shiny gold foil paper.

 

IMG_5642

Once my card base was dry and cut, I lined up the adorable and versatile Mixed Open Tab right in the center of my "marble" panel, and held it in place with a little blue tape before sending it through the die cutting machine. These little tabs cut on 3 sides, and score on the fourth, allowing you to create little windows and doors that open to reveal a surprise inside. My surprise was the gold embossed Art Deco Celebrate Christmas stamped sentiment. In order for the door to open and reveal the JOY, I needed to trim the inside lines of the center square. Before I cut the center square, I carefully measured the Mixed Open Tab to fit right right in the middle, but it still shifted to the left. A good tip to remember is just how slippery and slide YUPO paper can be when you put it through your die cutter. I finished the design with red foil Poinsettia Minis, and pearl centers.

IMG_5638

The Mixed Open Tabs come in 3 different shapes, and they work so well with all of the new shapes and frames in the Art Deco designs. Today's Mixed Open tabs reveal a little surprise just for you! You can win these versatile little tabs just by leaving a comment at the end of this post! Winners will be announced October 24th!

We are so happy you could join us today, and be a part of our Holiday Happenings Blog Blitz! Check back all week long for more beautiful inspiration and ideas from our design team!

Fall Thanks Card by Nadine Carlier 1 ps

I used several different dies for my card.  For the outer frame, I used the largest die from the Pointed Rectangle Frame Die Set and for the leaves, I used the Whittle Maple Leaf & the Whittle Oak Leaf dies. 

Fall Thanks Card by Nadine Carlier 3 ps

The pumpkins and owl are so cute! I die cut them out with some Rinea Foiled Paper using the Whittle Owl and Whittle Pumpkins Dies and layered them up on the Birch Stitched Frame Die.  Then added a quick sentiment using the Give Thanks Brushed Die but only used the thanks part of the die set.

Blog Blitz! Holiday Happenings
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028 2

Hi Poppy Peeps! Welcome to the 'Holiday Happenings' 2018 Blog Blitz! Lots of new dies, and some stamps and matching dies too! I'm showing you a new die called Deco Cecil Frame, and I've made a set of tags with it, another new die called Forest Stag.

DSC_0004

The frame  is the perfect size for a tag, and I've used the 2nd largest Pinpoint Main Street Tags to create 10 holiday tags and a matching box. Will it be a gift? Maybe... but I have to say, I fell in love with how sharp the frame looks on a tag!

DSC_0008

I die cut all my pieces first so I could assemble them easily. The frame itself was cut twice for each tag, once in a gold glitter cardstock and again in pale blue shimmer cardstock.

DSC_0005

You can see how I first glued down the outside of the frame, then the shimmer blue inside, which allows for perfect fit, kinda like a puzzle.

DSC_0029 2

The stag die was cut with red glitter cardstock. I backed it with another die cut from red cardstock, which gave it more body.

I couldn't resist decorating the top of the tag with tinsel, a paper rose and some gold garden sprigs, an oldie from Poppystamps, no longer available, but maybe you have it?

DSC_0030 2

I had the reverse die cuts already done, so I cut 5 more tags, out of black this time, and added a white glitter stag.

DSC_0027

10 tags, with a matching box.

DSC_0021

Here's how I made the simple matching box:

DSC_0001

2 strips, cutting sizes listed, scored and glued, crosswise. This simple box holds 10 to 12 tags, and can be decorated any way you like.

DSC_0032

White on one side, black tag on the other. 

This versatile frame die can be yours. Just leave a comment on my blog. I'd love to know what you think of it!

Comment every day during the blitz for a chance to win that day's featured die. The blitz runs from the 11th through the 21st, and the last day to comment is the 23rd. Winners announced on the 24th. Good luck!

Enjoy your day!

Holiday Happenings Blog Blitz Begins
by Jeanne Jachna

Fall-Thank-You-One
It's a great day for a visit!  Our Holiday Happenings Blog Blitz begins today!  That means the design team will be sharing peeks at the latest release and offering a chance for you to win a prize on every blog blitz post!  You can see the entire Holiday Happenings Release here

Fall-Thank-You
I started by creating a distress ink panel in Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Spiced Marmalade.  I splattered the panel with water, watered down ink and white ink.  I inked up Whittle Maple and Oak Leaves with distress ink in and arranged them on a piece of plastic the size of my card base.   This makes it easy to pick up my layout while I work on the background. 

Fall-Leaves-One

I cut the inked panel so it would fit behind the largest Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame and adhered it to my card base.   Alternately you could ink up the negative inside cut piece from the frame.

Fall--Leaves
I attached the Doodle Thank You sentiment and arranged the leaves along the left margin of the card. 
Fall-Thank-You-Three
I used two colors of distress ink for each leaf to add some depth and shadow.  I love how the stitched leaves match the stitched scalloped frame!
Fall-Thank-You-Two
I inked up the details on the Whittle Squirrel with a cotton swab that I dabbed on a distress ink pad.
Fall-Thank-You-Four

 And now the part you've been waiting for.. the prize on this post is the Whittle Oak Leaf die.

Let me fill you in on all the details ok?

The blog blitz runs from October 11-21. We'll be giving away a prize on every blog blitz post during this time. To enter to win you need to leave a comment on ONLY the posts that you wish to enter.
