Sending Smiles
by Lisa Elton

24  0318  000 copyHello friends! I thought I would send some smiles your way today. I mean, seriously, how can you look at any of the wonderful Nordic dies and not smile? I'm hoping these pretty Nordic Fanfare Butterflies do the trick for you today!

I cut a trio of these little beauties using a patterned paper pad from our parent company, Memory Box called Anemone. I picked a coordinating lavender from their Lagoon Solid Core paper and used silver from the Festive Glitter pad for their bodies.

24  0318  001 copySpeaking of details, look how pretty the layers on this butterfly are! The are so many color possibilities for this die. I know there aren't plaid butterflies in nature, but it's fun to get creative with our paper versions! This sentiment comes from the Memory Box Gracious Floral set. I've heat embossed it with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The finishing touch was a sprinkling of clear fairy jewels.

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.

Celebrating Summer with Nordic Butterflies
by Lisa Elton

With summer just around the corner, butterflies were calling my name. And my goodness, what pretty butterflies the Nordic variety are! I'm sharing two of them today.  First up is the Nordic Floral Butterfly.

This one has a wonderful whimsical look to it. The sweet flower cut-outs let you change up the look in numerous ways.  My butterfly was created using our fabulous Black Glossy Paper.  I can not rave enough about this paper! The gloss is incredible, it's a nice heavy weight and it cuts like a butter! Lovely lilac glitter paper from the Graceful Garden Glitter Pad was the perfect companion for this whimsical little lady! She's perched atop a panel embossed with the Cheerful Floral folder that's available from our parent company, Memory Box. I couldn't decide on a sentiment for this one. I'll add it when I need the card.

My second card features the Nordic Spectacular Butterfly. And I must say, it's just that... spectacular!

Using the same Black Glossy Paper, there's also a pretty pink layer and a black sparkly layer. I added a small strip of thin white paper behind the circle cut outs for just a bit more pizazz! The sentiment was stamped with black ink, then again with Versa Mark ink and clear embossed. This little lady is also perched on a Cheerful Floral embossed panel. This time I flipped the panel upside down.

It's a Specail Day
By Lisa Elton

Once a floral designer, always a floral designer! Imagine the joy I had when I discovered this pretty little Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart in the latest release. I knew immediately I would turn it into a flower cart. I didn't have a cart like this in my floral shop, but I would have loved a life sized one! The sentiment, from the Birthday Banners set, reflects the way I felt when I saw this darling new die. Let me take you back to the beginning and show you the process.

After die cutting the pieces for the cart, I colored some of them with Copic markers. The handles for the flower buckets are shiny silver paper. Next came the largest of the pretty Scallop Pinpoint Rings. It was cut from ivory cardstock. The center portion was ink blended with a soft blue.

I added these elements to an ivory card base that was covered with a Cortina Pinpoint Plate die cut panel. It's pretty as it is, but flowers made it even better!

The new Flower and Leaf Sprinkles die has a wonderful assortment of little blooms and sprigs. As you can see, I layered them up in the buckets, on the cart and on the ground. You can never have too many flowers! Also new in the shop is the Bunches O' Butterflies die. The sweetest little butterflies just the right size to visit my flower cart!

There are oodles of new dies in the shop that would look extra cute on this cart. Take a look at the Idea Book for some inspiration. My heart was with flowers, but I know there will be more to come from the team. Thank you so much for stopping by to pay us a visit!







Sunrise Butterflies
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_8 (2)Hi Crafty Friends,
Spring is on it's way and hopefully that means beautiful butterflies everywhere (however, since I'm in the Midwest it's probably going to be more cicadas than butterflies BOO!). This orange delight features Poppy Stamps Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and Nordic Lacey Plate.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Are you getting the 17 year or 13 year cicadas this year?
A: Me? YES! We are supposed to be where they overlap so TRILLIONS

Final_1 (3)I started my card by by putting together the butterflies. I layered three different shades of orange from the Sunrise 6x6 Paper Pad for the main Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and then two layers for the small butterflies.  Next, I mounted the Nordic Lacey Plate on a light shade of orange and framed it on glitter paper from the Poppy Stamps Majestic Hues 6x6 Paper Pad. Finally, I add the Thinking of You Banner Sentiment from the Sentimental Banners Stamp & Die Set.
