Hi friends, it's Rachel! I'm here with a new Poppystamps challenge. The theme is "Old School". Create a project using at least one Poppystamps die. Link it up and one lucky random winner will receive a prize. Florals are timeless and classic, so I am sharing a themed card using the beautiful "Perfect Posies Bouquet" die.
To create this card I die cut the Poppystamps "Perfect Posies Bouquet" and the "Teardrop Butterflies" dies in a sturdy white cardstock. I die cut the butterflies again using the Memory Box "Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad". Next I blended blue, green and teal distress ink over the bouquet. For dimensional effects, I doubled up some of the blossoms. For sparkle, I applied glitter glue to the blossom centers and petals. I chose a deep blue card base from the Memory Box "Ocean Blue" collection. A hot foil sentiment from the "Modest Banner Greetings" set adds a fresh silver accent. White splatters fill in empty space. Finally, an "Old School" sheer, organza ribbon finishes the card.
These are some of the supplies I used.
I hope you get a chance to take part in this challenge. And by the way, with the start of a new school year, why not give your "Old School" card to a favorite teacher to tell them how amazing they are?! Have fun and don't forget to link your card up.
Take card and happy crafting~
Hello! Tricia Barber here sharing my first post for Poppy Stamps! I am super excited to be here! I love using dies to create cards and picked the Perfect Posies Bouquet to be the focal point of my card today. There are so many ways that you can add color to your die cuts outside of using colored cardstock. I used my Copic markers to color the Perfect Posies Bouquet: RV52, RV55, RV66, YG01, YG23 and YG17. I die cut an extra white card panel with the Perfect Posies die and then trimmed out several of the flowers to pop up on the card panel.
For my main panel, I die cut a kraft Evangeline Pinpoint Frame panel and layered onto a kraft card base with some liquid adhesive. From some white cardstock I used the middle die from the Scalloped Stitch Frames die and layered on top of the kraft card panel. I added my colored posie die cut onto the white frame with liquid adhesive. I used the trimmed out posies and popped up with foam adhesive. I added details with a white gel pen and crystal glaze to the centers of the flowers. By popping up the flowers you can add dimension to the die cut and give it a different look! For some of the flowers I layered the flower so that it was offsetting the petals below it and others I layered exactly how they are on the die!
To finish off the card, I hot foiled a gold sentiment banner using the Modest Banner Greetings Foil and Cut die set and added to the card with foam tape. I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!

I die cut the Whittle Jellyfish out of rainbow pastel colors and added bling to my Diamond Background by putting a Pastel Jewel in each diamond.
Hello, Marybeth Lopez here with you on the last few days of June. I made this card a while ago . I used one of the newest 3D Embossing Folder and Die set, it's amazing . So many many possibilities with this set. I wanted to try in all white. I added just a bit of glitter to make it festive for a birthday card.
After die cutting the main floral I then paced it in the embossing folder. After adding the Poppystamps Pointy Lattice Plate to the panel I added the main embossed floral to the card. I added foam tape to the back to pop it up.
The card above is one I made awhile ago as well. I posted it before the link was ready to use. Sorry about that. I used a Stencil set that can be used with this set. I also love it in Color too.
Thank you for the visit. I hope all of you in the USA have a wonderful 4th of July.
EmGod bless America 🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🏼
Hi Crafty Friends,
Since Father's Day is this month it's gotten me into trying to produce more Masculine Cards which is always a challenge. Today, I'm sharing a great idea for a manly birthday card using Poppy Stamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel Card and deer from the Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit. Both dies are so versatile for all occasions.
