Look what's new at Poppystamps!

Hi everyone! Happy weekend! We've got new products for you in the Poppystamps store now! How exciting! Dave has been working his magic and has designed several new dies for you to fall in love with. There are some new things for Easter and some very exciting additions to your favorite window dies. You're gonna like what you see! CLICK HERE to go to the store and see what's up.

Today's card features two brand new dies and a new stamp from Memory Box. The new dies are the Grand Egg (829) and the Bubble Daisy Border (826). I put them together with some fresh Memory Box papers to creat the first Easter card of the season.



I cut the Bubble Daisy Border into pieces and used them on different spots on the card. I added some pearls (found at any craft store) to the centers. The sentiment (Wishing You Combo) is from the What's in the Box collection that just came out. I stamped it in black on a strip of vellum. All the papers are from Memory Box.





I hope you are as excited as I am about our new additions to the collection! Have a wonderful weekend, and happy crafting!

Spring Fan card...

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Did you do anything crafty? Whatever you did, hope it was great! There will be some new Poppystamps dies coming out soon - and we are getting ready to launch them! More Spring items that are sure to get your creativity flowing! Check back and keep in touch on Twitter and facebook to see the new items.

Today we're sharing a card made using our Asian character stamps and a pretty fan. You won't believe that the paper is actually from the 6x6 Christmas collection pack! The paper felt perfect for this card....



I stamped two images several times to make my own background. I thought they looked like pretty stones. The fan was colored partially with Copics and then paper pieced as you can see.

Happy Spring?!

I know it might be a little early but it feels like Spring this week. Maybe it's Valentine's Day...or the rain? Or maybe we're just ready for some sunshine! Today we have a pretty Spring card to share made with the Petunia Petals stamp (217C). While out blog surfing, I came across this adorable creation made by Karrie and asked her if I could share it with you. She captured the feeling of Spring and made Petunia look just perfect on her card.

Happy Valentine's Day from Bella!

Today it's Bella's turn to wish you all a Happy and warm Valentine's Day! She is holding her pink balloons just waiting for someone to share them with! This card is all about being girlie with lots of our bubblegum pink paper and some pretty clouds....




In order to give her a scene to stand in, I die cut a soft green sheet of paper using the Memory Box Modern Landscape Die.



After coloring Bella with Copic Markers, I used some stickles glitter glue on the clouds and on the balloons and her dress. You know, just to make it even more girlie! The sentiment is from Memory Box...supply list below...


Do you have all of your Valentine's stamped yet? Are you ready for Spring? I know I am! Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting us here at Poppystamps!

A sweet Valentine from Rex!

Hello! How was your week? It's Valentine's month now, and time to make those sweet cards to give to loved ones. Today's card is a sweet and simple Valentine from Rex the dog! This card would make fun cards for kids' classes and it's and easy to mass produce. I used our new Cupid Heart Die to make a big giant heart for Rex...

Our Memory Box distressed dots paper in cranberry is the perfect background for a big red heart!

I lightly colored him grey with a Copic marker and added a teeny heart on his chest. The sentiment is from Memory Box and fits just right.





Thank you for coming by the Poppystamps blog today! Take care!
