Hampstead Oval Frame.
by Pam Simpson

Sharing a "Happy Birthday" card today.


Simple Birthday card to make, no flowers on this card, just leaves!


I cut two Hampstead Oval frame Dies, shaded both with distress inks, Peacock Feathers and Gathered Twigs. adhered one flat onto Open Studio "Stitched Ovals" cut with turquoise blue pearl card. second die cut I applied  glue  on the oval shape, not the leaves,  Vintage Happy Birthday cut in white applied to the centre oval, then random bisque liquid pearl dots onto leaves and oval.


Adhered this oval to white rectangle card   51/2" x 41/2" , next touch larger blue matt. next white layer I used the Jourdana Collage die to top left, this was dry embossed in a folder.

Verona Flourish leaf die with ribbon and pearls.

Said it was quick and simply.. thank you for stopping by Poppystamps blog today..Pam

3. Die cut Peony Delight and Devyn Butterfly Trio from pearl white card stock, then adhere them to inked base using fine tip glue pen.
4. Stamp the sentiment from Hope and Thanks set on black card stock using VersaMark Embossing ink, then heat emboss with white embossing powder.

Garden Hello
by Lezlye Lauterbach



Welcome to Poppystamps  and my creation for you today. When I received the Bench die I had envisioned looking through the foliage at the bench nestled in a cozy spot. I offset the sentiment and added wink of stella and glossy accents to add dimension.



As you can see in this photo, I purposely left the branches unglued for added interest.

Penguin Valentine
by Sue McRae

Hi, it's Sue here with my last Valentine's card.


I decided to go cute and created a scene using two different penguin stamp and die sets, Be Mine Penguins and Snow One Like You.

The Mrs. Penguin has accidentally let go of her Valentine's balloons so Mr. Penguin jumps to the rescue to catch them with his fishing pole and save the day!


Silly, I know but you have to have a little fun when you're crafting, right?


For the "snow banks" I used a die from the Stitched Annaleigh Tag Decorations and covered them with Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by to visit today!

Happy Birthday Floral Frame
by Michele K. Henderson


Happy Birthday and Hello to spring colors! I love the pretty shades of spring and knew they would blend beautifully with some of my favorite dies from the new Poppystamps release!


I used the brand new Happy Birthday Floral Frame, Monterey Vine, Bellina Corner, and a few springs from the Kaysen Oval Frame, to create some cheerful birthday greetings against a watercolor background! Originally I was going to make a shaker card, but I fell in love with the way I could make the vines twist in front and back of the pretty scalloped edges of the circle. A few bright sequins and some lavender colored berries were the perfect finishing touch!

Thanks for joining us today!

Live your life in color!

Miniature Felt Tags
by Olga Direktorenko

Today's project is inspired by the new Mini Floral Bouquet die. It is SOOOO tiny then I thought of making something really nice and small with it - and I used felt instead of paper for extra softness and cuteness.

It also surprised me how easily the small dies cut through felt! Watch the VIDEO for more info!





Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous weekend!

Whale You Be Mine
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello, its me again, two days in a row. I made this sweet little Valentine with that adorable Yes I Whale  stamp and die.

I could just pinch myself , I love working with all these wonderful products from Poppystamps , I feel very blessed each and every time I use them.


I very lightly shaded some blue ink on the top layer.  The pink layer is only shaded on the edge as pictured below.


No need to do the center. 


Such a sweet set from Poppystamps , hope you liked it! Thanks for the visit and

Happy St.Valentine's Day to you!

Toast For Two
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello! Oh my gosh where did January go!

I made this CAS card that was not simple at first, only because I had a different design in mind and I ended up not liking it. I do like this simple design, Hope you do too!


Don’t you just love this little toaster! I wanted it to look as though the toast just popped out of the toaster. 

 I cut some very tiny strips of acetate from an old stamp package. I added the toast to the acetate with 

foam tape on the back then some embossing powder to that. I didn't want it to stick to the panel because

I wanted it to wobble and bounce around freely.


I cut the pink heart from Yes I Whale Die Set then layered  it 3 times. I also have some foam tape on the  

of the back of the toaster. The sweet sentiment is from  You Melt My Heart CL407.


Now that I have the CAS ness :) of this card I will be making a few more. 

See you tomorrow with another card.

Ombre Petal Ribbon
by Jeanne Jachna


I hope you're having a great day!  I've got a pretty ombre card featuring the new Petal Ribbon die to share today!    This one was so fun to make.  First you'll want to choose 5 solid card stock colors.  They don't have to be different shades of the same color, they could be rainbow, or just colors that make you happy.  Next I cut the Petal Ribbon once from each color. 
I wanted to fit more flowers on the card base so I alternated the orientation of the petal ribbon die.  So flip the die cut upside down on every other color.   I think they would look great on a flat sheet of white card stock, but I wanted to fancy this up with a little debossing.   Instead of cutting the Distressed Benson Corner, I ran it through my die cut machine with my rubber embossing mat to get the debossed impression of the die.
 The Petal Ribbon flowers have a bitty hole in their centers.  I topped these with little pearls.  So where are you going to get all these different colors of pearls your asking?  Here' my tip of the day... 
I purchase white pearls and color them to match with my Copic Markers.  You don't have to use Copics - any brand of alcohol marker will work.  Just make sure you give them a little time to dry before you touch them. 
Those cute little butterflies?  They're from the new Hampstead Butterfly Stem!  They're adorabe and I thought they'd look cute scattered around all these colorful flowers!


 Have I got you thinking about vacations in warm places yet?    Hang in there!  Spring will be here before you know it!
