Someone Special!
by Robin Tharaldson

April 30 Full WITH

Thanks for stopping by Poppystamps blog today! My card features pretty Spring flowers for a special someone!! The products I used are listed at the end of my post with links to the Poppystamps shop for your convenience! 

April 30 CU1 WITH

I really like the pretty, bright Spring flowers! This card just says "happy" to me, lol!!!

April 30 CU2 WITH

By using the Double Stitch Circle Frames I was able to create a circle on my card panel; another use for frame dies!!

April 30 CU3 WITH

To stamp my images I used a slightly different technique, one that was not so easy until stamp positioners became available. My video shows how to stamp with more accuracy onto pre cut die-cuts!!

This cheerful card was easy breezy to make too! Cut out the Whittle Elephant in bright pink, and then cut the Tall Sketch Daisies in some of your favorite spring colors. Arrange the daisies to create a colorful jungle!

Warmest Wishes.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today.. Sharing a card I think would do for male or female, lots of men like plants! don`t  you think, how many men are not into sports, but love gardening!.

IMG_3576-crop

I have used Poppystamp dies "Spring Pots Shelves" as the main focal point, with Poppystamp Large Window Cutout makes them sit on the page and adds interest, another die I like to use for many occasions is a window, you can make it looking in or out.

IMG_3564-crop

This is how I cut the window and frame.

IMG_3565-crop

Reverse of the above.

IMG_3566-crop

I left the die cut as shown and coloured up my pots and flowers.

how they look, when card waste removed.

IMG_3568-crop

Piece of heavy weight Velum, coloured with a pale blue marker. this is for the window.

IMG_3569-crop

stamped  black dots.

IMG_3570-crop

card ready for the decoration..5"x 6.1/2" ..I used foam tape to the reverse on the window panel.

IMG_3571-crop

Double sided foam tape on the flower pots, these have had a bit of shape to them, as I did`nt want flat pots (can you see a bit of curve).. I used the same colour blue to shadow the word "Wishes" as for velum.

IMG_3572-crop

When the card was finished I have used Ranger "Glossy Accents" on my pots.

IMG_3575-crop

Gives a lovely glazed look to the po, you`d think they were ceramic.

Hope you like this card and will have a go at one yourself.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

DIY Wedding Favors Gift Boxes by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here today with some easy DIY wedding favor gift boxes. 

DIY Wedding Favors Gift Boxes by Nadine Carlier 1

I stamped the Poppystamps Butterfly Wings Clear Stamp with some VersaMark and heat set it with some silver embossing powder. For the heart, I used the small heart from the Whittle Heart Frames Die Set and cut it out from metallic silver cardstock.

Hello Birthday Girl
by Robin Tharaldson

Hello Birthday Girl Full WITH

Hi everyone thanks for stopping by today! I created this birthday card for a sweet young lady turning 3!  Yes, yes, yes...I know, another card with a word die, but I just love creating with the new Luscious Script dies!!! The possibilities are endless when you combine LARGE word dies with just about any sentiment!

Hello Birthday Girl CU1 WITH

For my card I used an embossing folder to create a textured background and then added three die cuts from Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames. I think the scalloped die cuts look like lace and helped create a feminine look to the card!

Hello Birthday Girl CU2 WITH

The word die was three times from white card stock and once from grey, I then glued them together with a slight offset with the grey layer.  Having the white behind really added dimension to the large die cut! 

Hello Birthday Girl CU3 WITH

A simple wrap of pink yarn and a few of my favorite sequins finished my card! The following video will show you how easy it was to assemble this card!

Cheerful Hello Card
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here today with a cheerful hello card using the new Poppystamps Butterfly Wings Clear Stamp Set.  I love how this stamp is a background stamp, so many things can be done with background stamps. 

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I used it to create a resist for the background on my card front. The "to my favorite bestie" is one of the sentiment stamps that comes with the Butterfly Wings Stamp Set. 
The "hello" is from the Poppystamps Luscious Script Die.

To All My Peeps
By Jeanne Jachna

Peeps-Five
Wow this month has been going so fast!  With the weather so fickle here in the midwest - snow one day, rain the next, I can't decide if it's Spring or Winter.  Nope!  Yes!  It's SPRING!  And we have been waiting a long time for it! 
Peeps-Two-WM
I was so worried that the bulb flowers coming up wouldn't stand a chance but they are resilient like us.  A little back tracking of cold weather isn't going to stand in our way right?  
Peeps-Four
I stamped the rows of tulips and little birds from Easter Chicks (in my part of the world I'm calling them Robins because they're back from their Winter migration) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.  The images are easy to die cut with the coordinating window style dies that you place over the images and then die cut. 
Peeps-Three
I stamped the sentiment along  the bottom of a panel that I inked with distress ink (Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, and Squeezed Lemonade).  The tulips are adhered flat to the card panel, and the little birds are adhered with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension. 
Peeps
Wishing you a beautiful spring day!
