Happy Spring!
by Rachel Duong


Hi Everyone! It's spring and have I told you how much I love the weather?! Not only that, but the birds chirping is music to my ears. I am back with another Poppystamps card using the "Nordic Bird Bunch!"  Casually sitting on a fence, these birds are enjoying a peaceful morning. Leftover die cuts on hand, these birds are from my Challenge Reminder post. Let's get started...


The "Nordic Bird Bunch" birds were die cut in glitter, pearlescent, and shades of blue and orange(for the beaks) paper. The Memory box paper packs are listed below. 


I chose a patterned paper from the Memory Box "Anemone Grove" paper pack for the background. Next I ran an Open Studio embossing folder "Vintage Tray" through my die cutting machine with an aqua shade of blue cardstock. I cut the paper down to look like a fence and blended distress ink over the texture to enhance the lines. IMG_4860

I die cut a speech bubble from the Poppystamps "Word Balloons" set. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Poppystamps "Spring Banners" clear stamp set in black Versafine ink.

Putting the card together was fast. I glued the pattern paper on to a white card base and then the fence comes next in the lower half of the card. The birds are arranged with the sentiment and I glued it down when I was satisfied with placements. 


I added Fairy Jewels in light turquoise nest to the sentiment and under the birds. Bakers twine in aqua and white tied in a double bow complete the card. Yay!

A Bird Bunch Birthday
by Rachel Duong


Hello there! It's Rachel, and I am excited to share a birthday card with a bunch of birds! I also want to remind you to join in our April Poppystamps Challenge. The theme is "Look Out The Window!" Create a card with a window or something that resembles a window on it. You can also create a scene as if you were looking out a window.


My window card features fancy birds with so much pizazz! I used the Poppystamps "Nordic Bird Bunch" die, it comes with six birds. I die cut the birds using pearlescent white and aqua, navy and white glitter paper, and a periwinkle shade of blue. Paper comes from Memory Box paper packs listed below. I assembled the birds and I used a fine point black Sharpie marker to color the area for the eye. Also don't forget the orange beaks!


Next I die cut the "Arched Gothic Cathedral Window" in white cardstock for the top piece and Memory Box "Anemone Grove" patterned paper for the accent. Using the negative shape of the window, I traced it on a piece of vellum, cut it out and glued it under the window.


I die cut the "Nordic Lacy Plate" in a heavy white cardstock. This is a beautiful backdrop for any card occasion. Then I adhered the window to the background and adhered it to a white cardbase. 

I arranged the birds on the card. I glued them down when I felt it looked just right. A Happy Birthday sentiment strip fit perfectly on the window trim. Finally I added a beautiful embellishment at the top of the window. 


I had a blast creating this card, it is just too "tweet!" I love the shades of blue and the fancy papers with glitter and shine. The birds are so handsome in their sweaters!

That's all for today. Please join the challenge. Link up your photo and two winners will be selected. Good luck to you! See you very soon.

I added some fun foam to the back of the heart using one of the smaller hearts to cut it out. The main heart was cut out with memory box woodgrain cardstock. I then added the little scalloped frame that is part of the same die set called :Scallop Pinpoint Hearts from Poppystamps .


The two darling birds are from the January release of Poppystamps and it's called Nordic Bird Bunch. So fun to play with.

Love Note
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends,

Love is in the air this month, so let's send a little love note with the Large Stitched Envelope and Postage, made with charming patterned paper from the Memory Box Cottage Meadow Paper Pack collection. I started with a card base cut from the Cottage Meadow pack that positioned the florals in the upper right hand corner. I cut the envelope in a coordinating pattern and folded it into the cutest little floral surprise.


Once the base and envelope were complete, I cut a selection of flowers from the Nordic Flower Heads in shades of pink and yellow. I added a small pink heart from the Scalloped Pinpoint Hearts, and a few tiny hearts from the Hearts Shining Arch in bright, coordinating colors.


The real star of my love note card are the pretty bird couple I created from the Nordic Bird Bunch, one of my favorite new sets from the Poppystamps latest release. I cur them in bright yellow, with the wings in black, white, and pale yellow. Every time I see them, I think about the very earliest birds of spring that I would see growing up in Wisconsin, the bright yellow finches circling around the hanging feeders. I love the details in these tiny dies.


After everything was cut, I arranged it all on my card and topped it off with a few fairy gemstones. My cheery little love note is ready to go.

Thank you all so much for joining us today!
