Christmas Window for Poppystamps

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! We are just 5 days  until Christmas! Are you ready? I wanted to make a card that depected every house in America this time of year.

Christmas window

I used an embossing folder to create the brick texture on the red cardstock. I cut the Grand Madison Window Die in white and black added some acetate for the window with some snow flakes and ornaments from the Christmas Baubles Die.  The added touc of diminsion with the bulbs across the top makes it realistic don't you think?
Hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas!

Starbuck's Birthday!

Love You Trenta!

 This card was made for a co-worker friend of mine for her daughter's 40th Birthday. I used products from two of my FAVORITE online stores! Simon Says Stamp and My Favorite Things!
I love the red and Teal combination! I had to hand cut the check-mark for the cup. I added MME candy stripe pattern paper for a festive peppermint feel! I also used my Stampin up scallop punch for the border. Don't you just love the handwritten birthday dies by Kristina Werner!

Whipping out the rest of my Christmas Cards, then I hope to be back to my regular posting! This month has just flown by!

Have a great day!

Walking Dead Anyone??

Zombodie's Birthday!

I had a request for a custom Birthday Card I was given several options for card idea's based on her likes. Walking Dead was one of them. Now I have not watched this series, but a friend of mine Justine does so I made up my Daryl with my file from svgcuttingfiles and my cricut explore. I mocked up the card and showed Justine. She gave me the idea of the hand arm or body silhouette. This is what I came up with!

Window die is Poppystamps
Hand is October 31st Cricut Cartridge or online at
Daryl File Limited availbility from SVG cutting files.
Tim Holtz Atlterations Embossing Folder Brick Wall
