Blog Blitz ~ Tall Sketch Daisies
by Jennifer Svare

Sketch Flowers2

Hello!  This new release is so much fun, and I love seeing all the new dies in beautiful creations!  Today I'll be sharing a tutorial of  this card in the video below.  The Tall Sketch Daisies created a shadowed effect with white against kraft card stock.  Along the way, I discovered a cool trick with using white-on-white that results in a beautiful, soft, cushy look. I'll show it in the video, but a hint:  watercolor paper!

A Flutter of Florals
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everybody!

We are so thrilled that you could join us here at Poppystamps today! Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful summery card that's full of fun and color! Take a look!


I love using the Diamond Background for so many projects, especially for spring and summer garden themes. It reminds me of a pretty garden trellis, and it's a beautiful backdrop for these tiny blooms and hummingbirds.

After cutting the Diamond background in a "base" lime green, I adhered it to my card base, then cut additional Diamonds in multiple colors. Originally I had planned on a more colorful background, but after seeing how my tiny flowers were shaping up, I decided to make all the diamond inserts white, to really make my flowers pop.


After gluing in all the diamonds, I added the Little Hummingbirds with tiny foam dots, then went to work on the Poinsettia Minis. I cut out all of the petals, curled them inwards with a ball burnisher, glued them all together, added them to my card, and finished them with tiny blue jewel centers.  It's not very hard work. but it is a little time-consuming, and it takes a delicate hand and some craft tweezers. The results are always eye-catching!


Thank you all so much for joining us today!

Florida Flamingo
by Michele K. Henderson



Hello Everybody!

Welcome to Poppystamps! Now that summer is knocking on our doors, it's time to think about vacations! How about Florida? This Fine Flamingo is happy to welcome you to the Sunshine State, or anywhere else warm and sunny! Even if it's cold where you are now, you can shake off the winter blues with vivid colors, fine flamingos, and floral displays in bright colors! 


I started with a grey background panel, and framed it with a white Pointed Rectangle Frame. I added the Fine Flamingo in a hot pink, and then arranged the Blooming Rose and Rose Stem to look like an opening through a garden grove. I wanted each flower to look slightly different, so I tweaked the die cuts just a little, adding a leaf here, or cutting off a curly vine there. When I was happy with the lay-out, I cut each flower in two shades of yellow, orange, and blue, and glued the pieces in place with craft tweezers. The Stitched Fluttering Butterflies made a bright finishing touch.



Thanks so much for joining us today! We love sharing our designs with you, and we also love to see what our Poppystamps friends and family like to create too!

Simple Stamping and No Line Coloring
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps no line coloring 1

Have you seen lots of colored stamped images with Polychromos pencils lately? I was dying to try them out so I decided to create a no line coloring card. Now, I am definitely a BEGINNER when it comes to coloring with pencils, so I kept everything very simple.

Rebecca keppel poppystamps color pencils1

I stamped the images close to each other, but not overlapping so I did not have to do masking. I stuck to just a few colors of the pencils. All the flowers were three shades of yellow and the leaves were just two shades of green. Even so, it was a blast to create and I love the outcome and will definitely be trying this again!

Check out this video where I share how I do simple stamping and easy no line coloring with the Polychromos pencils:

Sending Handmade Hugs
by Nancy Penir


Hi! It's my turn to show you a card made with Poppystamps die, Country Rose Corner.


Another new die set I used is: Big Hexagon Border Layer and Little Hexagon Border Layer. 2 different dies,

when used together make a big layering impact!


Is there anything sweeter than pinks and pale blue for Spring?

I took out the pieces of my rose die cut and copic colored the petals. Also copic colored the fern leaves. You'll notice I used 3 rose dies for their fern leaves, to look like they were climbing a lattice.


I wanted a controlled 'splatter' of dots, so I stamped the dots from Peony Stems and Blossoms.

Hope you enjoyed my Spring card, and are inspired to create one too!

Rose Stem Collage Thank You
by Jeanne Jachna

I hope you're having a great weekend!  Jeanne here today with a clean and simple project for you to try! 
I love playing with dies - there are so many different ways to use them to create lots of fun different looks.
I cut a piece of white card stock slightly smaller than my card base.   Next I cut the Rose Stem Collage, and the Thank You Streamer.  I layered this panel over a piece of bright pink card stock letting the colors peek through.
A touch of gold is always welcome.  I cut the Thank You Streamer from Gold Foil and inlaid it on the cut edge of the white card stock panel.
Wouldn't a whole set of these in different colors make a lovely gift for a friend?

Rose Stem with Fluttering Butterflies
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello to you all! Happy almost weekend, can you believe.... May will be here in a few minutes:)


For my card today I used the: Beautiful Rose Stem and Stitched Fluttering Butterflies dies from Poppystamps.  I cut the rose panel out of firm vellum , glued the the main body to fun foam. After placing all the pieces back in I decided to remove and color softly with Zig Real Brush Pens.


 Below shows the pieces being placed back in  without glue and non colored. After I colored them I added tiny dots of glue and placed back in the same way.

It was like making a puzzle but already knowing where each peace was  going to go. Very relaxing!


The butterflies are cut from firm vellum as well then colored the same way with Zig pens.


I may add a sentiment to the front of this card but liked it as is for now... I can always add later. Thank you for the visit and I hope you give the look and die a try..... very enjoyable crafting.

Delightful Daisies
by Michele K. Henderson



Hello Everyone!

Spring is arriving everywhere, and it's time to celebrate with a colorful bouquet of Delightful Daisies! Take a look!


This card will brighten your mood and chase away those winter blues. I used the Delightful Daisy to cut out five different daisies in two different sizes, then played around with the stems and leaves. It's easy to create multiple stems and leaves by trimming the cuts in different ways. Once my pieces were all cut out, I assembled my card base, background panel, and the Pointed Rectangle Frame.


I added a few Splendid Stitched Hearts and the Little Luxe Love and it feels like a lovely spring day!


Thanks so much for joining us today!
