Eternal love

Hello Poppy fans, I hope you are safe and well. Summer has finally come here in Denmark and recently my husband and I celebrated our 17th anniversary. I'm a very lucky woman to have my best friend and super supportive husband by my side. This year I kept it simple, some might even say girly. But he loved it.
Watermark1.593030684829E12

I started by spraying a liquid ink onto a panel of watercolor cardstock. I did this outside, because I didn't want the ink all over the floors. I spritzed a couple of times and then, while it was still wet, I poured over pink glitter. When it had dried completely I carefully removed the excess glitter by tilting the panel. I didn't flick it, because I didn't want to risk all the glitter falling off.

I then cut the Confetti Heart plate from white cardstock and adhered on top of the watercolor panel. In this close-up you can see the glitter.

I stamped a sentiment, cut it with my trimmer and poped it up for dimension.

I would love to hear from you. Until next time, happy crafting!

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz
by Sue McRae

IMG_1597c

Welcome to another day of our Garden Variety Blog Blitz! Hope you’ve been enjoying all the amazing projects created by the design team!

I’m showcasing the Flora Bloom Solid Set which includes 5 dies. I only used the 2nd largest die on my card today. I die cut the bloom from white card stock, placed the new Whittle Spinner Background Die on top of the die cut and sent it back through my die cutting machine so it could add the swirly cut line design into the flower. I really love how this looks.

Next I took Distress Inks to add colour to the flower. I spritzed the flower with Perfect Pearls for some added shimmer and added gems to the flower centre.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from the new Garden Folly paper pack and adhered it to my card base and stamped my sentiment. I added a frame from white card stock using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames set, added my flower and tucked in the new Adriana Small Curve Border behind it. I finished off with a butterfly from the Intricate Cut Butterflies set.

Wishing You Brighter Days
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 4.30

Hello crafty friends, Candice here, sharing with you another design team project showcasing products from our Spring release.                                    Today's card is bright and cheerful with a playful Spring theme full of colorful umbrellas. 

April 30 Blog Post Supplies

To make this card, you will need the new Raining Frame Die set, along with the Whittle Cloud Border die and the Birch Press Designs Blooming Spring stamp set. You will also need card stock scraps in the colors blue, yellow, orange, green, light pink, white and fuchsia. 

Begin by die cutting the cloud borders from a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of white card stock. 

April 30th Blog Post 3

Next take your yellow, orange, green, light pink and fuchsia card stock and die cut the umbrella from the Raining Frame Die set with each color. No need to use your larger pieces of colored card stock; small scraps will work the best for to die cutting the tiny umbrellas.

Next, die cut the raining background from a piece of a piece of blue card stock. The Raining Frame die creates the perfect 4.0 x 5.25 inch background layer for the card. Assemble the card by first adhering the Raining background layer to a 4.25 x 5.5 inch white card base using adhesive of choice. I prefer liquid adhesive.

Next add your stitched cloud borders to both the top and bottom of the raining background layer. Then paper piece the light pink umbrella directly into the umbrella opening of the raining background layer with some liquid adhesive.

Now add the remaining umbrellas to the card with 3M foam tape arranging them in a staggering design around the light pink umbrella. April 30th Post 3.3
Finish the card by stamping the sentiment "wishing you brighter days" in VersaFine Black Onyx ink using a combination of sentiments from the Birch Press Blooming Spring stamp set.

Today's card is full of color and dimension and came together rather quickly. I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and will try this design out for yourself.

Thank you for joining me today. Until next time...stay safe and happy crafting!

Springtime Greetings using Rinea foil
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.587661750898E12

Hello everyone! These are troubled times, but I hope you're finding time to enjoy the little things. Like spring, warmer weather, flowers blooming and the abundance of colors in them.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together. Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects. The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base. This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet. Additionally this gives it the ability to hold it's shape making it perfect for dimensional flowers.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

By now you must know that I'm more of a "go all in"-type rather than cas, so I used dies from the spring release to cut lots of foil in lots of gorgoeus spring colors.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

The base for the Butterfly symphony and barrow-part are white cardstock. Everything else is foil. I used a smooth gold foil to back the base.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

I gave the wheelbarrow a quick coloring with Copics. Of course I stamped the sentiment first, so I had to be careful since I hadn't used a Copic-safe ink. Again I used smooth foil for the wheel and flower clusters. I actually cut the blue one in half because I wanted it spread out more and also to give room for the butterflies. Since I placed the blue ones at the back it doesn't show at all.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

The flowers (as well as hedgehogs and butterflies), however, I cut from textured foil just to spice things up.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

After adhering the wheelbarrow to the base I added the extra flowers and 2 hedgehogs. See how Mrs. hog has a flower behind her ear while Mr. hog is fetching her a butterfly?

You'll notice the hedgehogs are mirrored and I simply just used one front and one back, since the textured foils are textured on both sides. 
Watermark1.587661750898E12

Just look at how well these foils hold themselves up. Love that!
Watermark1.587661750898E12

I was so happy to work with these foils, and I do hope you'll give them a try. You'll love the smooth and textured foils and all the beautiful colors they come in.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you'll leave me a reply. I love reading them. Stay safe!
