Blue Valentine
by Nancy Penir


Hello, and welcome to a post featuring one of the new Poppystamps dies, Blooming Rose.


Now I'm all about romance around Valentines, and the sweet femininity of this die hit all my girly buttons!

Here's a few tips on how I created this card.


I cut the rose image several time from different colors, gluing down 2 on my distressed card base.


Once my two rose diecuts were pieced onto the circle, I added foam squares to the back for a bit of a lift off the card.

I always overdo the foam if the card is being sent in the mail, to make sure nothing gets bent or collapses.


A closeup of the card's sentiment, which was doubled and a look at the uplifted center circle.


Hope your Valentines are full of love and maybe just a bit of crafting love too!

Easter Bunny Egg
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello! Marybeth here today. Getting a head start on some Easter cards today with this fun little shaker .

I am using Poppystamps new Easter Bunny Egg. I decided to water color this one on the front and background  .


 I layered this the same as my other shakers ( fun foam and clear acetate) then filled with beads for a little bit louder shaking noise. I  added fun foamunder the grassy area (otherwise the beads would just fall to the bottom and I would need more beads to fill) 


I used an older stamp for the sentiment and just curved it to fit around the upper part of the egg. ( Easter Excitement Poppystamps )

It's always nice when its fun and relaxing when creating a card, I have to say this was one of those kinds of cards.

Don't you love it when that happens!


Outside of the sentiment this card can be made with one die!

The paint I used is shimmery but not showing up in the photos. Thank you for the visit today. 

God bless and thank you all for your past kind comments, that you take time to leave.

You Make My Heart Flutter: Challenge Reminder
by Nancy Penir


I'm excited to be bringing you some inspiration for Poppy's latest challenge, 'MY HEART'.


For this card I created an embossed background with the Rose Frame, by die cutting with rubber mats.


It's easy to do, simply follow your die cutting machine's instruction on creating a raised embossed image.

Like the heart border on the card's top?


Oh yes, Poppy has a die for that! Cut twice (actually 4 times) and stacked on the top.


Rose Stem and Ribbon Heart were also cut twice, with white and red cardstock, before adding them to my card.

I hope you play along this month. Always fun to see what you create, and there's always a gc waiting for one lucky person!

Have a great crafty week!

Make Today Amazing
by Jeanne Jachna

I hope you're having a great day!  I don't know about you but I'm starting to daydream about butterflies and sunny skies! I'm still getting out with the dog, but I miss hearing the birds in the morning and walking in my garden.  Days like these I turn to crafting to escape to my own beautiful world where I can have all the flowers and butterflies I like! 
This card looks like it has lots of layers but it was really quite simple to make.  I started with a background of baby blue gingham from Lawn Fawn called Gotta Have Gingham.  I topped that with a blue Double Stitched Scallop Rectangle Frame die cut, and a white Double Stitched Rectangle Frame set inside it.   The stamped sentiment from the Flower Patch clear stamp set is stamped on the gingham paper that shows through the die cut frames.
Next for embellishing! I cut the Country Rose Corner from Gold and then adhered it over blue card stock.  I trimmed carefully around the edges for a clean outline.  A sprinkle of gold Fluttering Butterflies cut from glitter paper adds more sparkle and shine!
I hope you find time to make something beautiful today!

Delightful Daisy
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

Our blog blitz is rolling on with even more great ideas and inspiration, and a chance to win too! Today I am sharing a card I created with the pretty Delightful Daisy! It's a sweet and simple CAS salute to spring! Take a look!


This card was so easy to make (and quick too) that it completely slipped my mind to take a few photos of the creative steps! Ooops!  I cut out the Delightful Daisy in green, white, and yellow, the Little Rabbits, and the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies, glued them in place and it was finished, quick like a bunny! So today, I am going to share a little tip to add dimension to your beautiful CAS die cut cards.


This tip works especially well with flowers, leaves, and butterflies! When gluing your cuts on to your card base, leave a few areas of the cut "unglued." With the daisy, I glued down the center, but left the petals unglued, then carefully manipulated the paper  to curl the petals up a little, creating dimension and shadow. You could also try a double curl, where you bend the petals up at the center of the flower, then curl them down at the end with a pencil. This is a great effect on flowers like poinsettias or succulent petals, to make the cuts looks puffy. Paper is a wonderful media to manipulate with just simple simple bends and twists.

To add dimension to butterflies, bend them lengthwise in half and just glue a little bit in the center. You can create a swoosh of butterflies, for example, and bend the wings in different positions to look like they are fluttering. I think I'll try that in my next card!


I can't wait to see all your fresh new ideas with Poppystamps new spring collection! Since it IS a blog blitz, let's get to the blog candy! You could win the Delightful Daisy die just by leaving a comment on today's post! Enter every day for every die you would like to win! Best of luck!

Blog Blitz! Introducing Country Rose Corner
by Nancy Penir


Greetings Poppy Peeps! We're continuing our fabulous Blog Blitz with another new die and giveaway. 


I'm featuring the very beautiful, Country Rose Corner. Isn't it divine? A few tips on creating a card using this die.


I used my Scor-Buddy to score vertical lines on both sides of the card base.


Pointed Oval Frames provided a frame for next step, watercoloring a stamped bloom from Peony Stems and Blossoms.


I kept my rose dies intact, and added fronds from 2 further die cuts, slightly inked.


Sentiment: Peony Stems and Blossoms.

Don't forget to leave a comment to be able to win this die!

Blog Blitz Spring Bouquet!
by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  Today I'll share a few ways I used the Garden Bouquet and Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames to create these fun cards!  I just love using scalloped edges and they are especially perfect for spring cards (although I use them all year round). 

Spring Card 2 Watermark

I used different inlay and overlay techniques to create different levels of layers for some dimension throughout the flowers, and the Gotta Have Gingham by Lawn Fawn was used for the backgrounds in different colors. 

Glossy Accents was used on one of the cards to show how that might look. 

How would you like to win the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames?  Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win this awesome set of frame dies! 

I hope you have a great day!
