Fall Cottage Window
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello and happy fall to you all! I enjoyed creating this card in the very wee hours of the morning. 

I used Poppystamps Dies :Cottage Window, Maple Trio, Autumn Leaf Set and Doodle Happy Birthday.


I die cut and colored many leaves with the Peerless watercolor sheets and water pen. I just wipe the water pen  off in between colors on a baby wipe.


I am letting you see the not so nice side of my card. For this one I just added some score tape to the back of the window ,when turned over I could see my leaf placement as I went along.


 Sharing some more not so pretty side of the card showing you how I added my fun / craft foam. Once turned over I added a few more leaves here and there and added the window frame back in the opening and then added the shutters.


I added the main watercolored panel to the front of my card base . I first added the birthday die using soft stone cardstock I decided I wanted it to be in white , so it wouldn't  take away from the window .


Here is a close up of the layered leaves, under the frame.

Take care.

Party Animal Card
by Nadine Carlier

Party Animal Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello there Poppystamps fans! Nadine here and I am sharing a fun party animal card with you today.  When I was trying to figure out what to make I saw this scrap piece of burlap sitting on my table and I immediately thought it would make a fun background for the cute Poppystamps Whittle animal dies.  I have never used burlap on a card like this before, it was pretty easy to do I just cut it into a square and adhered it down.

I die cut out the Weeping Willow Branch in dark green cardstock and adhered it to top of the card over the burlap.  For the Whittle Monkey, I die cut him out in dark brown cardstock and also a beige cardstock, cut out his face, tummy, and ears from the beige cardstock and adhered them to the dark brown. Then I wrapped his tail around the vine of the Weeping Willow.

For the Whittle Lion and the Whittle Tiger, I cut them both out in yellow-orange color cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them in a little.  The Whittle Tiger I decided to have her sit on the larger of the two Whittle Mounds.

I then cut out the Whittle Oval Wood Frames, once using dark brown cardstock and again using white cardstock.  I used the dark brown for the frame itself and used the inner part from the white to stamp the sentiment "Have Fun You Party Animal" from the Whittle Everyday Stamp Set.  Then die cut some of the Cheery Cardinals and adhered them around the frame on the Weeping Willow Branch.

After I adhered all the Whittle Animals on my card I felt it still needed a little more so got out my airbrush machine and airbrushed on some Copics on the burlap, animals, and sentiment.  Then my card was complete! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Jungle party
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello everyone, and welcome! Today I'm showing you just how much of a jungle party you can have with the gorgeous summer release products!

First I cut an A2 panel from watercolor cardstock, spritzed it with water and added Nuvo shimmer powder in Green parade. I kept adding more water and powder until I was happy with the look. It's hard to show on a photo but I love the shimmery look these powders give in real life.

I then used the Fun floral sidekick frame die to cut 4 frames. I wanted my top layer light and "floating", so I cut off all the fern leaves with my scissors.

For my top layer I used yupo paper and Ranger alcohol ink in Limeade, Patina and Gold mixative. Again i kept adding color until I liked it. I was going for a dense dark jungle in the back with a lighter front. 

You'll notice that I didn't add my sentiment before attaching the frames. The sentiment from Whittle everyday stamp set I stamped fine with my stamping tool, but be aware that the yupo paper does not handle heat very well. I had to heat set the WOW! Gold pearl embossing powder very carefully. 

I cut a bunch of the cute Whittles - monkey, koala, lion, tiger and turtle, all part of the summer release! I colored them with my Copics and popped them up with foam squares. Now, I know they don't naturally live together, so let's just pretend they came from near and far to celebrate. 

The finishing touch was Nuvo drops in pale gold.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to create!

Whittles Boy Card


Hi Poppy fans! Do you have any little ones in your life? Some 'littles' who love animals? 

Poppystamps released some adorable new animal whittles this month. Have you been enjoying all the inspiration by the design team? I hope so. And I hope you've commented on the sets you've been eyeing.

My card today is  a Whittle scene of some of my favorite jungle animals.


The new whittle dies cut the image out as well as imprint the fabulous personalities of each animal. LOVE!


I wanted a jungle scene with a warm glow, and decided to do a watercolor with my Kuretakes and water color paper. To that I splashed on some Mr. Huey white and  Adirondac Lettuce.


I love framing my scenes, but didn't want the whole Sidekick frame, so I simply snipped out what I didn't need or want, and left one little branch to balance the monkeys in the trees.


Sassy little monkeys think the lion doesn't notice them in the palm fronds. Think again, little monkeys!


Hope my card brought a smile, and maybe some inspiration too.

Don't forget, this is the last day to leave your comments on the blog blitz cards. Your chances to win increase with each comment. And each Blog Blitz post has a new die up for grabs! Hope you're in the winner's post on the 29th!

Happy crafty creating everyone!

Time to Celebrate
by Robin Tharaldson

May 30 Celebrate Full WITH

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by the Poppystamps blog! This card is one of many I try to keep in my "any occasion" stash! With the addition of a simple sentiment this card could be used for weddings, birthdays, promotions, etc!

May 30 Celebrate CU1 WITH

I used the Finial Circle die and cut it out two times with coordinating cardstock. I then "wove" them together and attached to my card panel!

May 30 Celebrate CU2 WITH

My sentiment is from the Birthday Blowout stamp set. I heat embossed it with a copper embossing powder onto a piece of vellum that I wrapped around a light grey cardstock.

May 30 Celebrate CU3 WITH

I really like the wreath encircling the sentiment. I purposefully did not adhere the entire wreath to the panel; I wanted a bit of dimension with the sprigs.

All products used are listed at the bottom of my post and I hope you will give this "generic" card a try! 

Thanks for stopping by...

Hugs!! It's Your Birthday!
by Robin Tharaldson

May23 HugsFull WITH

Nothing like a BIG hug on your birthday! These large word dies from Poppystamps have taken me by storm!! Hope you aren't getting too bored with me designing with them BUT they are so versatile!

May23 Hugs CU1 WITH

I think this design is gender neutral, but with the grey/brown tones it's more masculine. With a simple switch of palate it could be more feminine or with bright colors suitable for children.

May23 Hugs CU2 WITH

By cutting the Delicate Branch Collage die twice, then turning it around and stacking, I created more of the background element I was needing for this card. I'm sure if you look at your dies you will find a few that would work with this technique.

May23 Hugs CU3 NO

Even though I resisted making a shaker card, this would be a great frame for one!!  My video will show you just how easy this card was to create! And at times we all need something easy and fast!
