Sending Hugs and Prayers
by Marybeth Lopez


 Hi there, Marybeth here today! I am sharing a card I created with Poppy Stamps: Sending Scribbles and Sending Scribbles die set. Even though this is one stamp and die set it has many different ways to use it and I think the sentiments are perfect for many uses, seems to be my go to set right now.


I used my Zig Brush pens, to color in my cut and stamped image. Since I used watercolor card stock I didn't  have to add much water as the paper drinks up the brush pens very well, and I wanted to keep the vibrant color. I scored some random lines across my white panel for some added texture. 


Here is a picture of the dies and stamp set. If you look closely you can see I  have a cut out and stamped... Sending... sentiment  that I decided not to use this time. Instead I just tamped the sentiment with a soft gray ink.


I used some pinkish orange and fall-ish colors for this card since its almost fall and still summer. I am really liking that pumpkin-ish color bloom and might add another one to this card.

Hope you liked it and as you can see anyone can create this card. 

Thank you for all the kind comments on the Blog Blitz!

Shaker with Stitched Leaves
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there! Marybeth here today sharing some fun new products from Poppystamps for fall or anytime of year! I've made a card like this before but not with these leaves or sentiment.

I love this new sentiment from one of the new clear stamp sets: Sending Scribbles!



I simply inserted the dome (that I bought a long time ago) into the cut circle, then used fun foam to raise the rest of the panel. I placed the cut leaves in a pile on the center of my card then placed  the window panel on top.


Using the vibrant Peerless water color sheets for my coloring of the stitched leaves,( bought from Birch Press Design, linked below). I used only the two smaller leaves from both sets: Stitched Maple Trio and Stitched Oak Trio. 


I couldn't wait to make another one of these shakers, to share on the Poppystamps Blog.

Huckleberry Gift Tags by Jennifer Svare


Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I am so excited to be a new member of the Poppystamps Design Team!  It was so much fun designing these huckleberry gift tags using the Pinpoint Main Street Tag set, along with the Holly Twig die from the new holiday release. To modify the design, I replaced the holly leaves with the leaves from the Viola Leaves die set. This tag features a swing-out card attached with an eyelet under the bow, so a favorite huckleberry recipe or note can be shared.  Two versions of berries are shown. 

Instructions are on the step-by-step video tutorial below!

Sending Hugs and Prayers
by Nancy Penir


Hi Everyone! It's Nancy, giving you a look at one of the new dies , Brilliant Leaf Frame.


Isn't this the most beautiful frame die? It's really one for all seasons, and as I've used here, for many purposes.

Here's what and how I created it:


Using another new set just released, Sending Scribbles, I gold embossed my sentiment onto black card stock.

Then I die cut the leaf frame from gold foil and white shimmer card stock.


2 frames means I could make 2 cards, and that's just what I did.


One in gold and one with white leaves.


Gold embossed the sweet leaf trio from Sending Scribbles on a couple of envelopes, and 2 cards done and ready to mail!

Hope you enjoyed a look at one of the loveliest new dies and new stamp set from Poppystamps.

Both are available for purchase in the shop now.

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

Give Thanks
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a pretty, autumn, watercolor creation.  Enjoy!

Poppystamps Give Thanks - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in shades of yellow and purple and splattering it with those same colors.  I then used both the Fall Leaf Collage and Majestic Maple dies to die-cut a number of maple leaves from the dried print; secured them, some with foam tape, as seen below, to the Oatmeal, cardstock, card face, which had its top left corner rounded; and splattered them with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.

A strip of Elegant Eggplant cardstock was then anchored, along the right side of the card face, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches and topped with the "give thanks" sentiment, which was die-cut, from gold cardstock, with our Give Thanks Brushed die to complete the look.

Be Thankful
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog! Lezlye today sharing another Fall Card for your inspiration.

 I love fall and the colors that are all around. Today I am showcasing a beautiful fall die and I have done the inlaid die technique. 


I cut it once from the brown cardstock and then two more time through copper and gold. You will notice in my last photo the embossing detail that comes through on the acorn tops, when you use a thin rubber mat to run through your die machine a second time. This allows the paper to go deeper and leave the embossed design.


Have a great Day! Be Thankful!

Sending Warm Wishes
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a die-cut shaker card that simply drips with the essence of fall.

Poppy Sending Warm Wishes - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by watercoloring a simple background on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then die-cut a Tucked Corner Tag from White cardstock; punched its top edge to make room for a little hemp twine wrapped through a Crumb Cake, cardstock, Festival Tags ring; stamped it, in Jet Black ink, with the partial "WARM WISHES" sentiment; and embossed it with a scattering of stars.

I then laid it over the watercolor background before splattering everything with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once everything was dry, I anchored the watercolored panel, to the White, cardstock, card face, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches and popped the tag up, with foam tape, in its center.  The Carved Diamond Pumpkin was die-cut from Pumpkin Pie cardstock; hand-cut around its edges to free it from the cardstock surface; backed with a clear panel, sandwiched between the original and a solid piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock; and stuffed with a happy mix of sequins and seed beads.  A trio of Chocolate Chip, cardstock vines, as well as a Chocolate Chip, cardstock stem and Garden Green cardstock leaves prep the pumpkin for its new home to which it was adhered with foam tape. The "Sending WARM WISHES" sentiment was then completed with a die-cut, White, cardstock "Sending", layered over the pumpkin's bottom right edge.

The tag itself was further dressed up with a fluffy, white, seam binding ribbon bow, embellished with a lone pearl, to complete the look.

Thanks, as always, for humbling us with a visit!  Be blessed!

Fall Thanks
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a card inspired by the cooler fall weather we've been having in my neck of the woods.

Poppy Fall Thanks - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by spritzing Gold Color Shine, through the Garden Falling Maple stencil, onto a piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered a fall array of watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, over everything; trimmed its bottom edge with a punched, Kraft, cardstock, grass strip; anchored the prepped piece, to a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches; and popped it off the White, cardstock, card face with foam tape.  The Trim Tree was then cut from Kraft cardstock; adhered in the center of the card face; and filled in with lots of watercolored, on watercolor paper, and die-cut leaves, which I coated with Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer and shine.  I also perched a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die cut and watercolored bird in the tree's branches.

A stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die cut and watercolored fox sweetly smiles below its leaves...

and a die-cut, from gold cardstock, "thanks" sentiment completes the look.

Autumn Leaves
by Irena Kowalczyk

Good morning everyone!
I like autumn, with its beautiful colors. And today's card is full of colors.


I started with a white card base, I made the background using a Falling Maple stencil ink in distress. I used only one side of stencil. Right I left white.


The next step is to cutting a three leaves of Majestic Maple die.
I added color to them also with distress ink. Then he added these leaves on the base, a few drops Glossy accents to create an autumn mood.

I wish you a beautiful, colorful day.
Thanks for stopping by today!
