Wedding card

Hi everyone!

I'm a scrapbooker from Poland and this is my first post for this wonderful blog! I really love to use Poppy Stamps dies in my projects and I think they are perfect for any occasion.  The card I'd like to share today is for my friends. So wishes are in Polish language.

Greetings Fellow Crafters.

To create the cute Ghosts flaming hair, eyes and mouths I took the inside pieces that are leftover from the Delicate Branch Frame. The shaped corners work really well if you cut them at an angle and add them behind the Ghosts. Then coat the hair with glaze and sprinkle with glitter and attach the Ghosts to the Madison Park Bench. Add a white Picket Fence and stately black Grand Oak Tree with the fun orange Party Lanterns and finish with a few small Swooping bats with red glowing eyes.

Memory Box Materials:
Delicate Branch Frame (98631) (use scrap leftovers)
Grand Oak Tree (98462)
Ghost Trio (98376)
Swooping Bats (98409)

Poppystamps Materials:
Madison Park Bench (881)
Picket Fence (827)
Party Lanterns (835)

Bluebird Thank You Card

Good Morning,  Lezlye's Ink and Paper Creations  here and Welcome to my first post as a DT Member for Poppystamps. I am so excited to be designing for this Awesome company! We have lots of talent and hope to inspire you everyday!


For my card I used Poppystamps Serene Bird Die and Memorybox Woodland Branch Die. The card is Memory Box and the Pink and Blue Pattern Papers. I used a memorybox sentiment stamp that I cut apart to have a single sentiment. I added a black bling for the birds eye and a prima flower to the branch for more interest. Be sure and come back later where another Design Team Member will have a post for your enjoyment!

Until next time....

Hi, Sherry Eckblad here with my first post as a member of the PoppyStamps design team and I have created a card for a friend who is moving into a new house.


This was a fun and rather quick card to put together after I colored all of those individual flowers with my Copic markers. 

I used the following poppystamps dies on my card: Small Madison Window, Small Madison Window Shutter, Lacy Curtains, Small Flower Box and Wildflower Patch.

For the curtains I used Dots - Pool by Memory Box along with white cardstock from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my first blog post as a design team member I will be back in a few days with another card to share with you.

Red Bird

Bird-Wreath-CUHi Jeanne here!  I'm so happy to share with you my very first post as a Poppy Stamps Design Team member!  I'm on cloud 9 working with this wonderful group of ladies!  I've been enjoying the summer spending time outdoors gardening, and yes -  just being lazy reading a book.  I really enjoy a little bird watching too. I'm always reaching for my field guide when I spot a new feathered visitor in my yard.  I just couldn't resist using the Poppy Stamps Serene Bird die for my project today!  I thought cutting it from some pretty  patterned paper would make it even more fun!.  I made the scalloped corner with the roof top die from the Madison House Set, and the leaves are from the Memory Box Sonora Rose.  I embellished my card with a few pearls to look like berries.    Bird-Wreath
I hope you like it and that you'll stop by often for more inspiration and great ways to have fun with your Poppy Stamps!  Have a beautiful day!!

I am excited to be part of the Poppystamps Design Team.  I hope you enjoy my first submission.  This card can be used for a variety of occasions.  The inside can be left blank for writing or a greeting can be added

This card can be used for pet sympathy card, hello, thinking of you, and thank you. I have added a few stamps in the product listing to give you an idea of sentiments.

Tip: Think of ways to use your dies in new ways. For example, in this card I show you how to use a Poppystamps Madison Bench die to create a chair and a stem with leaves to create leaves for the tree.

Supplies you will need:

Poppystamps Dies:
Madison Park Bench (881)
Pouncing Cat (876)
Tall Stem (853)

Memory Box Dies:
Dancing Butterflies (98576)
Resting Birds (98527)
Orchard Tree Frame (98300)
Debutante Frame (98297)

Memory Box Paper:
Mocha (10N Notecard 33027)
SH-Vanilla Bean (44044)
SH-Sunflower (44041)
SH-Kraft (44019)
SH-Dill (44010)
SH-Jack-o-Lantern (44017)
SH-Blueberry (44002)

Miniature pearls in pastel colors, adhesives (glue, tape, circles or dots), scissors or paper trimmer to cut paper small enough to run through a die-cut machine, die-cut machine, ink for stamping greeting inside card (if desired). Chalks to color sunset for background of frame.

Prepare the frame:

Step 1:  Using Vanilla Bean sheet paper run the Orchard Tree Frame through your die cutting machine.  Do not attach them together yet.

Step 2:  Using white card stock run the Debutante Frame through the die cutting machine.  Begin to create the background sunset by using pastel chalks (although you could get a similar effect with watercolor brush and ink).
I began by creating the sun then blending purple, pink, red, orange down around the sun.  Then I added a blue extending down to meet the green area of the grass.  Carefully attach the Debutante Frame background to the Mocha A10 card stock.

Step 3:  Using both Kraft and Vanilla Bean sheet paper cut the Madison Park Bench (the bench end [twice] n Vanilla Bean and the seating area [once] in Kraft). Cut (and you may have to do this on a bit of curve) the seating area in half.  Assemble the chair and cut away seating area as appropriate once you line up the ends of the bench.

Step 4:  Attach the bench to the Debutant Frame.  Then add the Orchard Tree frame on top.  I used some small dots of adhesive for positioning and then added liquid glue to secure.

Step 5:  Die cut the Pouncing Cat in Vanilla Bean and position it toward the tree (pick a place where you will add a bird (see Prepare the tree).

Prepare the tree:

Step 1:  Die cut in Jack-o-lantern (or you could use Mango) sheet paper the Dancing Butterflies.  Cut again with Sunflower sheet paper. 

Step 2:  Die cut in Blueberry sheet paper the Resting Birds.

Step 3:  Die cut the Tall Stem 3 times. Then taking fine paper scissors detach the leaves from the steam. 

Step 4:  Attach your butterflies, birds, and leaves.

Step 5:  Add miniature pastel pearls (optional).

If a greeting is desired stamp it inside the card now and your card is complete!

Old Country Chapel

Hi, Ira Huberts here (Ira´s Crea Corner), so excited to be part of this wonderful team! We all love to work with those exquisitely fine dies that Poppystamps and Memory Box bring to the craft markets. Their intricate designs make them even more fun to use!

For my very first project for our team I am taking you back in time a bit. You probably all know those fine old country chapel walls that you see in Europe a lot, the UK has plenty of them, as do Germany and France, even my country the Netherlands has a few. I love the peace and quiet that surround such chapels and churches and so I decided to recreate a similar wall. Sometimes they're overgrown with lovely green mosses, hence the distressed wall and abundance of branches and leaves.

Enjoy all the wonderful creations my fellow team mates will have in store for you!

Here´s a list of the items I used for my chapel wall:

Christmas in July

I'm so excited to share my first card for Poppy Stamps!  What a wonderful honour it is to be able to create with all the talented ladies who are the Design Team members!  Being able to create with the fabulous dies is pretty great as well.  :)

This is my "Christmas in July" card even though Christmas is still 5 months away.  I wanted to use the Poppy Stamps Poinsettia Die because it's so pretty and decided to make it pink (pink is my favourite colour).  The polka dot paper comes from Memory Box  I used the Tilda Swirl from PoppyStamps underneath the poinsettia. I used some glitter glue on the petals of the flower and inked the edges of the leaves with green ink.  The pearls come from a huge supply of bling and accessories I have and the sentiment is a wonderful quote from Mother Teresa and was done by using Microsoft Word - Font used is AndantinoJF. 

I love working with the Poppy Stamp Dies.  They are so well designed and they come out precise and clean.  The fact that they emboss as they cut is an added bonus :)

A Happy Hello to You

Hi everyone!  Sherry Hester here with my first Poppystamps blog post.  Soooo happy to be a member of the new Design Team!!

Bird in Cage - 7-18-13

This card features three of my all time favorite Poppystamps dies: Nesting Bird, Vintage Bird Cage and Ivy Tendrils.  For the flowers I used the Floral Delights die from Memory Box.  I just love all the tiny flowers and stars you get with just one swoop!  I embossed the smaller piece of card stock and mounted it on background paper from the Memory Box Brioche paper collection.  And of course once the arrangement was set, always a little bling! Hope you enjoy!
