Twisted Houses
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends. Candice here on the blog with another Halloween card to share. Today's card is another cutesy Halloween card using dies from the recent Poppystamps Halloween release.


The dies I used for the card are the Twisted Houses die, the Whittle Creatures die set and the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I cut the Twisted Housed die from black card stock and layered with yellow cardstock underneath to make the houses appear to have lights on. Next I die cut the ghost from white glitter cardstock and the word spooky from plain white cardstock. 


For the background on my card I created a nighttime sunset using Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot. Today's card came together rather quickly and I really enjoyed creating it. I hope you all found inspiration to create some cutesy Halloween cards. Until next time....happy crafting.

Happy 4th!
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome! It's time to celebrate in the USA, and I've 'baked' a cake card for all to share!

Poppy's fabulous Floral Cake Pop Up Easel Set is so much fun to use, but it's also fabulously versatile. 


All the pieces for this card (with the exception of the sentiments) are included in the set. No stamping necessary (unless you want to of course!). The designers have been knocking this set out of the park! Be sure to scroll through the blog for more fabulous ideas.


I love the bright red, white and blue all die cut and shinning bright on this card! 

I won't keep you, don't let those burgers and hot dogs burn on the grill! 

 Happy 4th of July, my American friends! And all you out there too! Who needs an excuse to celebrate!

Surprise! This little kitty has arrived and he is the hit of the party! Make your birthday cards pop with our brand new Floral Cake Pop Up Easel Set. These kits are so fun and easy to use, you'll find a reason to celebrate with a cake every day!


I started with the Floral Cake Pop Up Easel Set and cut the background card panels in a crisp, bright white. I added the cake layers in a bright lavender, and topped off the tiers with vivid pink icing.


I then cut an assortment of bright flower petals, centers, leaves, candles, and letters from the Floral Cake Pop Up easel Set, Marzipan Alphabet, and of course, Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit. I put it all together for something cheerful and fun.


The Pop Up Easel collection cards look great no matter which way you choose to display them.

Teacher Appreciation Card
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey Poppy friends! Did you know that Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday, May 2? My husband has been a math teacher at a public school for nearly a decade so I know how hard teachers work. I decided to pull out some supplies and create a very clean and simple card to say thank you to one of the hardworking educators at my husband's school. I hope this inspires you to make a few cards for the dedicated educators in your life.

To start, I die cut a panel of white cardstock using the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate die and trimmed a quarter inch from two sides. I adhered the panel to an A2 card base. 


Next, using the Berry Red and Ocean Blue paper packs, I trimmed quarter inch strips with my paper trimmer. I trimmed a piece of copy paper to 4.5 x 3.25 inches and adhered the strips in alternating colors. I trimmed any excess hanging over. I backed the panel with fun foam for dimension and adhered to the card front.

Next, I worked on the sentiment. I die cut the word 'teacher' from white cardstock using the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I die cut each letter twice from cardstock and once from fun foam and adhered the layers together. Using the lines of the panel, I lined up and glued the letters across the panel with liquid glue. For a little extra detail, I added crystal glaze on each letter. I stamped the sub-sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set with prize ribbon distress oxide ink, cut it into a strip, and adhered with foam tape.


Lastly, I die cut the Whittle Pie die from white cardstock. With dye ink and copic markers, I colored the pie crust top. For the pie tin at the bottom, I die cut the piece from silver cardstock in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror pad. I adhered the crust with foam tape and then glued the completed pie above the letters.


If you make a card for an educator in your life, I'd love to see it. I think it would bring him or her so much joy. Please tag Poppystamps and me on Instagram. Happy crafting!

Wishing You Happiness
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey friends! Tiffany here with some Mother's Day inspiration for you. I combined several Poppystamps products to create this card so let's dive into the details.

First, I trimmed patterned paper from the Garden Folly paper pack to 4 x 5.25 in. Before adhering the panel to an A2 card base, I ink blended yellow dye ink on one corner for a little pop of color.

Next, I die cut several pieces from white cardstock. I die cut the Flower Field Tall Curve Border 4 times - to stack two on each side on of the panel. I die cut the Grand Madison Window die twice. Before adhering the window with foam tape for even more dimension, I backed the window with vellum and adhered the window on top of the border dies. Next, I die cut the Flower Field Corner die twice and adhered to opposite corners of the window.


Next, I die cut several yellow flowers using the Potpourri Flower Set and the Sunny Orange paper pack. I embellished each flower with Christmas Fairy Crystals in green.


For the sentiment, I die cut the word 'mom' twice - once from white cardstock and once from dark teal cardstock from the Fresh Aqua paper pack - with the Marzipan Alphabet dies.


Finally, I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card to finish the card. The sentiment is from the Colorful Life clear stamps set. I hope you enjoyed the card and are inspired to pull out a bunch of your Poppystamps supplies to create a special card for your mom, mother figure, or any other special woman in your life. Happy crafting!

Happy Easter
by Tiffany Pryce Russom

Hey friends! Tiffany here with some Easter inspiration for you. I pulled out a bunch of supplies for this cute scene so let's dive in!


First, I started on the card base and background. I trimmed a piece of coral, foil cardstock from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad to an A2 size and added it to an A2 card base. I die cut the Double Diamond Lattice Plate from white cardstock and adhered it on top with liquid glue.


Next, I worked on die cutting all of my card front pieces. I die cut the Spring Bunnies from white cardstock and lightly ink blended brown ink on the edges. I also added some spots with a brown copic marker. For the ground, I used the leaf and grass die from the Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set. I die cut both from two different green patterned papers from the Cottage Stripes and Dots Pad. I used some green copics and ink blended some green ink at the bottom for dimension. Lastly, I die cut several Farm Fresh Eggs from patterned paper from the Spring Plaid paper pad. The pattern is subtle, but the colors pick up the coral in the background. I adhered everything together with liquid glue and popped up the bunnies with foam tape.


For the sentiment, I die cut the word happy from the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I die cut two layers from white cardstock and the top layer from glitter cardstock from the Delicate Pastel Glitter pad. Using the same green patterned paper from the Cottage Stripes and Dots pad, I die cut the word Easter from the Splendid Happy Easter die. I embellished the card with several clear fairy drops around the panel.


Hope you're inspired to pull out some supplies and create your own scene! Please tag Poppystamps if you create a card inspired by this card. Have a great day!
