Poppystamps DT 5.31.21 1


Happy Memorial Day! Hope you are all enjoying the holiday.  Today, I am back on the blog showcasing a bright and cheery card using the Woven Basket Pop Up Easel set that released in early spring. This basket die is perfect for Easter and any occasion.  Although this die makes a Pop Up Easel card, the basket image can be used on its own to create a great focal image for an A2 size card.

The Basket die comes with several greenery pieces that I used along with the flower dies from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set. I also used the butterfly die from this set and some of the greenery pieces to complete the full floral basket. The centers of the flowers were embellished with some white nuvo drops for added dimension.

To add a bit of interest to the card I sponged on some Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink in the background.  The sentiment comes from the Greeting Basics stamp set and I used one of the sentiment frame dries from the Christmas Quotes stamp and die set to cut of the sentiment to adhere it to the basket with foam tape.

There is  a ton of dimension on this card and I absolutelylove it.  From the layered flowers and greenery to the layered basket pieces and butterfly, this basket image jumps off the card with so much texture. I hope you've enjoyed today's cardshare and found inspiration. 

Until next time...happy crafting. Candice Floral Signature copy

Mr and Mrs Whittle
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello there, Marybeth Lopez  here today with the real Challenge Reminder (ha ha), mixup in date last week. If you wanted details about my challenge card you can go HERE

Hope you have time play in  the Poppystamps Challenge , this months theme is nature with flowers and butterflies , you can go HERE for Details

For todays card I did use butterflies as you can see on the pretty patterned paper and the two butterflies on my card, each with added glitter..... because I just love adding glitter to a card anytime to a card, cant help myself :)


Above is how I added color to my Whittle Flamingo Poppystamps die cuts. I like to lightly blend the ink . The Flamingo die comes with extra legs so you can pose them as you like.

I layered each flamingo twice . The main panel is flat, not raised so layering the flamingos gives a bit more dimension.


I thought this sweet sentiment went well with this Mr and Mrs Whittle Flamingo , the stamp is from memory box Open Studio called: All the Happiness.


Above is a picture of the products I used ( all linked below) The Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set has some pretty butterflies but you can use any you have in your stash.


I used the Whittle Wave Background  die as a frame only this time. You can see in the photo above that it has cute waves in the center , I used patterned paper instead this time and shared how it can be used as a frame.


Don't forget that one lucky random winner will win : $20 Gift Certificate to the store.  Hope you have some time to play in on the fun challenge.

Thank you for the visit to Poppystamps blog today, I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.




In My Thoughts - Challenge Reminder
by Tiffany Pryce


Hi everyone! Tiffany here with a reminder of this month's challenge. We're celebrating spring with a walk in the garden so we're asking you to share our love of nature and add a butterfly or flower to your project. All types of projects are welcome, but please make sure to include at least one Poppystamps product. Read more details about this month's challenge on the blog.

For some inspiration, I created a simple sympathy card that I gifted to a friend. I wanted to keep the design thoughtful and simple, but with pops of soft color. I started by die cutting an A2 piece of cream cardstock with the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate die. I adhered it to an A2 card base made from heavyweight, white cardstock. The pinpoint detail adds subtle texture to any background, and reminded me of sun rays which worked nicely with the card's theme.



Next, I created my border. I die cut the Leafy Garden Border die from yellow and orange cardstock from the Sunny Orange paper pack. I layered the yellow die cut on top of the orange and offset it to allow the orange to peek out.


For the butterflies, I used the Intricate Cut Butterflies dies to die cut three different sizes of butterflies. With each butterfly, I die cut it three times - twice out of white cardstock, and once from DIY glossy cardstock I created. I made the cardstock by heat embossing satin white embossing powder on white cardstock. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue only in the middle where the body would be so the wings would have volume. For extra detail, I added gold nuvo drops to mimic the butterfly's body.


Lastly, I gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Diamond Sentiments stamp set on a piece of vellum. I used a very thin layer of glue that I carefully spread with my finger to adhere the vellum to the card front. This very thin layer was not visible through the vellum. 


Hope you are inspired to join us in this month's challenge. Happy crafting!

Flowers and Butterflies
by Marybeth Lopez



Hello , Marybeth Lopez  here with you today, sharing how I made this embossed card . I am also here to remind you of the  Poppystamps challenge: Flowers and Butterflies.

I hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother's Day.



After adding a layer of vellum to the stamped butterflies I also added a bit of glitter to the edges . The vellum layer made them look even a bit more elegant.


Above is a quick snapshot of the Products I used.


The Embossing folder is amazing and so very detailed that it is hard to capture in a photo.

The Hugs die is layered three times , then I added a tiny bit of glitter to it as well.



You have plenty of time to play along in the challenge , just make sure you use at least one Poppystamps product on your card.  

Take care and I hope you have a wonderful week.
