Frosted Cake
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello ! I have a very clean and simple card for you today, I think this would be a good masculine card ( especially if you like carrot cake)


The carrot for this card is from an older set of Poppystamps , called Easter Excitement. I colored the carrot in with my Copic markers.




 If you're  ever in need for a simply stated card that can be used for a few occasions, I hope this one gave you an idea or two!

Now I hope you don't get hungry for carrot cake like me :) Take care!

Clean & Simple
by Marybeth Lopez




Hello! Hope you are happy and well.

 I was very excited about this month's challenge because it is just up my alley, being Clean and Simple.  Hope you all have a chance to play this month. We are looking for Clean & Simply..... Please make sure you have at least one Poppystamps product on your card for a chance to win.


 I cut my die using watercolor cardstock , then placed a piece of patterned paper( big enough to cover the openings) underneath. Then I cut again using yellow and green carrdstock. I layered the center dots on the bloom twice, then added the green for the leaves.  I placed a piece of fun foam under the front panel.  Then stamped the sentiment using Sending Scribbles clear stamp from Poppystamps . I added a bit of shimmer with a shimmer pin on the leaves and center dots.


 The envelopes I use are always from Birch Press Design . So many beautiful colors to choose from.
Thanks for the visit and have a great week.

Hello! There is still plenty of time to still play in the Poppystamps Heart Challenge!

All you need to do is use a Poppystamps product on your card with a heart.
Hope you play along for a chance to win!


I used the new Heart Borders Die for the two center strips of hearts.


To raise my hearts I cut some fun foam. ( you cane use your heat gun to make it shrink just a bit).
 I cut two in green to look like the leaves.



Hope you having a good week! Take care1

I love the Frosted Cake die because it comes with 4 dies-- 2 cake layers and 2 frosting layers. I decided to come up with a few ways to embellish the frosting layers to create real looking frosting for my birthday cards.

Beyond Borders Large River Faerie
by Nancy Penir


End of Summer Greetings, and happy to bring you some more inspiration for our Poppy Stamps Challenge this month,

Beyond Borders. I wanted to give the Large River Faerie a magical setting to match her joyful pose.


This card was such fun to make. Some simple steps, and plenty of shimmer!


I used the stencil from Memory Box called, Modern Blooming Frame, and first sponge inked the card, then spritzed on some Perfect Pearls for shimmer.


Large River Faerie die comes with the faerie wings, which I cut and glittered twice, once in pale pink card stock, and then again in vellum. My faerie is dancing on a Large Iceland Poppy, both lightly inked and spritzed with my pearl spray.


Sentiment from: Fairy Greetings, white embossed on a homemade vellum banner.

You have 1 more week to enter the Beyond Borders Challenge, and a chance to win a gift certificate to the Poppystamps shop.

Maybe to buy this gorgeous faerie die set? Good Luck! Can't wait to see what you create!

Birthday Wishes
by Nancy Penir


Hi Poppy fans! I have a bright and happy card for you today, using some of the new stamps and dies just released.


I've been playing with alcohol inks, learning some of the wonderful things they can do, and created a couple of 'artsy' backgrounds.


From one of them, I cut 2 jars from the newly released, Jar Collection. Jars are so popular right now, and Poppy's given us 3 sizes in one die set. 


I cut all 3 of the images from Peony Stems and Blossom from watercolor card stock, and stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement. It's a favorite I use to give a light line to the image I'm watercoloring. The blooms were colored with Zig Clean Colors.


My sentiment is from is from Sending Scribbles, stamped with Wet Cement on a homemade banner.

See the doilies around the mouth of the jars? They are dies cuts from one of the new, Petit Four Stitched Borders.


A closeup of the jars shows how I removed some of the color around the edges with a copic 0. By using the 0 pen, you can also add hi lights and suggest a bottom to the jars. I drew in the stems to the flowers with copic W5.

Hope you enjoyed my card and how it was done, and are inspired to play with some of the fabulous new stamps and dies!

Marine Birthday Wishes
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Today I am sharing a masculine card that I made for my youngest son. He is a U.S. Marine and today is his 23 Birthday!

Poppy masculine Bday

I used the Circle Layers from Birch Press Design on my base card along with a stitched Oval die for the platform for my Daisies.


I used the green black and a pop of white for a very masculine feel. The  Happy Birthday streamer die I mounted to green yardstick strips.

I added a dimensional military sticker on there for him. 

Have a great weekend!

Dream Butterfly
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters! Sue here with all things metallic and shiny!


I used lots of gilding flakes on my card today, so lets get started.

For the background I took the Floribunda Collage and die cut it twice from a piece of A2 card stock to create a stencil. I taped this over a piece of white card stock and sponged on glitter glue (which dries tacky). I removed the stencil and added my gilding flakes over the flower images.


I die cut the Dream Butterfly from teal metallic paper and created a base for the butterfly which I covered with double sided adhesive and added a different color of gilding flakes.


To finish the card I heat embossed the sentiment with teal embossing powder and foam mounted it to my card base.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Beaded Daisy
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters! Sue here with a clean and simple card design today.


For my design I chose the Ragged Daisy die. There's just something so charming about this sweet flower. I decided to cover the flower with micro beads for a fun and different look.


I attached double sided adhesive to red card stock, die cut the daisy parts and pressed the petals into multi-coloured micro beads and pressed the flower centre, stem and leaves into gold micro beads. I really like the texture that the beads give to the flower!


Since I wanted the focus to be on the pretty bloom, I went with a simple design and used the Heart Pattern Plate for my background.


For the sentiment I took the Happy Birthday Streamer and die cut it once from white card stock and once from red card stock. I adhered the white layer to the red layer so that the red colour would help to give a visual contrast between the white sentiment and white background.


To finish off my card, I adhered the white panel onto a red card base.


Thanks for visiting with me today and happy crafting!

Ragged Daisy
by Marybeth Lopez

Good morning to you and happy weekend! I have a clean and simple looking card here today. I used the Ragged Daisy die that can be used in many different ways, I chose to have one row of petals but you could also make this a full bloom if you wanted.


This was the original color I was going to use then changed it to more of a soft yellow. All I did was stamp some ink on a clear block ,  spritzed it with water , then placed my panel on top . 



I did this with the stem and center of the flower as well, just using different colors.  You can always add more ink straight from the ink pad as well, to shade the edges. Each part of the flower is layered three times.

I used this fun little stamp set : Fairy Greetings from Poppystamps . My panel is watercolor card stock to add some texture to my card.

When I was finished I added a bit of Glossy Accents for a water drop look.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and I hope you find some time to craft! I also wanted to thank you for your kind comments!Marybeth Floral Signature copy-1
