Geranium Gatefold & Challenge Reminder
by Birgit Norton


Good morning Poppystamps friends!  Birgit here with you today sharing a card to remind you of the current challenge that's going on right now, themed "Bloom Where You're Planted".

I enjoyed bringing out some older dies that are still available in the store, hoping to inspire you to pull out those older supplies and use them.  

For my card, I brought out Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set and Picket Tall Curve Borders. 

I cut the flowers out of Blush 6x6 Solid Core cardstock and the leaves out of Greenery 6x6 Solid Core cardstock.  I added colored details and depth using copic markers.   I added sugared glitter to the outside edge of the flower petals and added Fairy Jewels to the centers of each of the flowers.


On each of the gatefold flaps, I added a piece of cardstock from the Greenery 6x6 Solid Core cardstock and cut the Picket Tall Curve Borders out of the same color, adding them to both flaps.  This gives the look of a garden trellis in the background.  I added a white cardstock oval, gluing it to the left flap and adhered the geraniums, covering the oval.  


I so enjoyed bringing out the tried and true dies that never go out of style for this challenge.  These geraniums are gorgeous in any color and they're so easy to assemble.   I hope I've inspired you today with this lovely geranium card.

Want to play along? 


The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up HERE at the Challenge blog. The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.

Corner Shop Wooden Cart
by Birgit Norton


Hello there Poppystamps friends, Birgit here with you today to share this sweet card featuring the Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles from the latest release.

IMG_6750To begin with, here is a list of dies I chose to use in today's project.  I cut all of the elements out of #80 white cardstock.

IMG_6752I colored all of the elements from the Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles using copic markers and then assembled them as shown here, using liquid glue.


For the background, I cut a piece of printed paper from the 6x6 Glimmering Gladiola paper stack using the Double Scalloped Stitched Frames and mounted it over a piece of coordinating cardstock from the 6x6 Lagoon Solid Core Cardstock pack.  I cut the Scalloped Pinpoint Rings out of white cardstock and blended on a bit of color using Tumbled Glass DOX ink.

IMG_6754Next, I glued the wooden cart and floral elements onto the Scalloped Pinpoint Rings circle.

IMG_6759I added the butterflies from Bunches of Butterflies using two layers, folding up the wings for added dimension.

IMG_6757To finish the card off, I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Banners and cut it using the coordinating straight banner die and glued it to the bottom of the card.

Happy Birthday Bunnies
by Rachel Duong


Hi Friends! It's Rachel here with a birthday greeting from a bunch of adorable bunnies! The Poppystamps "Bunny Faces" die makes wonderful birthday and Easter cards.


To create this card, I began by die cutting the "Bunny Faces" base with a deep pink cardstock from the Memory Box "Berry Red" paper pack. Next I die cut the faces using a heavy white cardstock. Then I cut little strips of black to lay under the eyes. I adhered the pieces together.


For the frame, I chose a beautiful berry plaid paper from the Memory Box "Poinsettia Plaid" pad. The fine gold foiled lines are so eyecatching! I used the Poppystamps "Double Scalloped Stitched Frames" die to create the frame and used the reverse side for the background. I die cut a second frame to adhere with the plaid one for extra thickness. 


I chose a dusty pink cardfront from the Memory Box "Berry Red" paper pack. I cut it just under an A2 size card and adhered it to a white cardbase. Next I assembled the bunnies on the frame and adhered it to the frame and cardbase. 


For the final touches, I die cut the Poppystamps "Nordic Flourishes". I used the small flower shape to embellish the frame. I saved all the other pieces for another project! I used glitter pink, pearlized pink, pearlized off-white and dusty pink from the Memory Box "Declicate Pastel Glitter Pad" and the "Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad". Finally I attached an Open Studio extra thick, gold foiled "Greeting Tabs" sentiment on the frame!

I love how fun and easy it was to make this bunny card. I hope you get a chance to try this out. Also, I can't wait to create gift tags with these Poppystamps "Bunny Faces". They are the perfect size! Have a wonderful day and looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Make a Wish with Nordic Birds
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_6Hi Crafty Friends,
I'm stocking my birthday stash this month with another elegant bird card using Poppy Stamps Nordic Birds, Scallop Pinpoint Hearts Dies and stunning Anemone Plaid 6x6 Paper Pad.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite spring color?
A: Me? I love the purple in this pad

Final_7I created the birds using the plaid papers from the Anemone Plaid Paper Pack with some solid lavender and purple cardstock. They are so simple to layer, I especially love the one with the 3 layers of wings.


I used Poppy Stamps Scalloped Stitched Frames Dies to frame these delightful purple birds. I also added the heart frames to make them pop from the background and accented the edges with Poppy Stamps Fairy Jewels.

I stamped the sentiments from the birthday blowout stamp set and add the little doodles from the birds tails to finish off my card.Final_3




Sparkling Wings : A Glittery Butterfly Birthday Card
by Jyoti Adhikar


Hi! This is Jyoti. Welcome to a world of shimmer and shine as we embark on a creative journey to craft a dazzling Glittery Butterfly Birthday Card! With a delightful lineup of products from  Poppystamps and Memory Box , we'll infuse this card with elegance, charm, and just the right amount of sparkle. Join me as we bring this vision to life, step by step.

Selecting the Color Palette

Every crafting adventure begins with selecting the perfect color palette. For this Glittery Butterfly Birthday Card, I opted for hues of red from the Blush Solid Core Card-stock pack. From deepest crimson to soft rose, these shades set the stage for a truly enchanting creation, perfectly complementing the festive theme.


Crafting the Butterfly

The centerpiece of our card is none other than the Nordic Fanfare Butterfly, a symbol of grace and beauty. With meticulous care, I die-cut the butterfly's wings from the selected shades of red card-stock, ranging from darkest to lightest. Adding a touch of opulence, I fashioned the butterfly's body from gold glitter paper, infusing our creation with a hint of magic.


Adding Nordic Borders

To frame our butterfly in elegance, I turned to the Nordic Border Set. Cutting two circular borders from the lightest red cardstock, I placed a piece of gold glitter card-stock behind each to create a stunning contrast. The intricate designs of the borders added a touch of sophistication, setting the stage for the card's focal point.


Building the Card Layout

With the foundational elements in place, it was time to construct the card layout. Centering the design on the charming Poinsettia Plaid pattern paper, I flanked it with rich red card-stock pieces, allowing the Nordic borders to shine. A delicate balance of colors and textures emerged, creating a visually captivating composition.


Sentiments and Sparkle

No birthday card is complete without a heartfelt sentiment! Using the Modest Banner Greetings set, I foiled the sentiment "Happy Birthday To You" in luxurious gold onto a piece of light red card-stock. This sentiment, adorned with a subtle offset gold glitter banner, found its place beneath the majestic butterfly. But why stop there? A touch of gold glitter stickles and shimmering lines along the butterfly's wings added an extra dose of sparkle and whimsy, elevating our Glittery Butterfly Birthday Card to new heights of enchantment.


And there you have it—our Glittery Butterfly Birthday Card is ready to dazzle and delight! With its shimmering wings and heartfelt sentiment, this creation is sure to bring joy to the lucky recipient. May it serve as a reminder of the beauty and magic that handmade cards can bring to any celebration.
