Acetate Front Card
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, another card idea for you! using this beautiful Memory Box ..3D Embossing Folder " Heart Bouquet"


Love these new split frame dies, from New Collection from Poppystamp 2020 Valentine Release .. Floral Lace Heart Split Border.. 


I started with a card length 11" you can cut of, but not add on, so best to be sure! I placed the cutting center edge 2.1/2" in from the right hand side edge.


Reverse (wrong) side after running through my die cutting machine.


Right Side. at this stage you can just fold back ..or Cut away! 


I made sure my  cut lines were straight, using my score board.


Using Acetate 5" wide..width of my card front.. and strong double sided sticky tape..adhere acetate to the card front.


To Hide the tape lines and make it neat inside your card, Adhere your cut of heart card onto the acetate.. using more strong double sided sticky tape.


Embossed card panel..mat onto a lilac card a touch larger.


butterflies to decorate..there I used from Poppystamp "Beautiful butterflies Sidekick Frame" cut in lilac and cream card.


Front decoration..My old favorite from Poppystamps.."Dandelion Stem" with "Holiday Mistletoe" ..Love Flourish.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you`ll have a go at this card idea..Pam x

Beautiful Butterflies.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, Pam here today.. I love Butterflies and they will be disappearing soon, till next spring! so wanted to use this Poppystamp  "Beautiful Butterflies side kick frame and stencil" set.


I started with a white card size 6"x 7".. I put the Beautiful Butterfly frame central on this to die cut in my machine. this left me with a border for my mine card.


I used Tumbled Glass Ink, and the tiny butterfly flourish stamp around my frame.


Next I have shaded these butterflies.


the lighter Tumbled glass ink I swooshed across ..the darker Stormy Sky I ponced with the finger dauber, as I wanted a mottled look.

  You get separate butterfly die in the set, these I have coloured the same way .these will be shaped and arrange onto the the butterfly panel.

 shaped butterflies, I use a foam mat and my scoring tool, just drag from edge to edge and then use the tool along the center press down to make a fold.


I have used from my stash ..Dark navy blue with a silver sparkle.. main card size to larger than 6" x 7"  tent fold (top fold) card I always make my own card bases.


These cute tiny bees and trail  Poppystamps clear stamp set.."Little Kindness" CL445.. stamped in black ink and I used Stickles yellow glitter glue. also along center on my layered up butterflies.

Sentiment.."Autumn Leaves" clear stamp set CL485..Dark green foliage Winter Berries..Red.. Holiday Mistletoe, finished with a bow..

Thank you for stopping by Pam xxx

Blog Blitz Beautiful Butterflies
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello everyone! I'm Tina and new to the Poppystamps design team. I'm so excited to be here and to share with you my first blog blitz post for the summer release. There are some goegeous dies and stamps and you can shop them here.

Poppy glitter

I started by covering a panel of white cardstock with double sided tape and cut this with the Beautiful Butterflies sidekick frame. I left all the pieces in and adhered the whole panel to my card base. I then pealed off the tape backing ONLY from all the pieces in between all the butterflies. Placing the panel on a piece of computer paper I covered it with WOW! Jade sparkles. A fair warning, you will have glitter everywhere!

Poppy show sparkle

I folded the paper over the panel and burnished the glitter with my bonefolder. Just look at all that sparkle! Isn't it gorgeous?!


I die cut the frame 4 more times and layered them on top (remembering to remove the rest of the tape backing). Before placing the final rectangle inlay I stamped a sentiment from the Butterfly Greetings stamp set.

Poppy dimension

The finishing touch was adding butterflies for dimension. I cut them with the die that comes with the frame. I bent them just a tiny bit and adhered them to the frame, matching the size to the butterflies on the frame. I also heat embossed 3 butterflies with WOW! Emerald Green embossing powder, which matches the sparkle. Can you tell I love this color?

I hope you're having a great day!  Have you noticed the Poppystamps Summer Release is in the store?   There's lots of great new products including FOUR new Sidekick style dies like this one called Beautiful Butterflies!
I started this card with a distress ink background.   It was easy to create using three shades of Distress Ink (Spun Sugar, Iced Lemonade and Dried Marigold).  The new makeup brushes like mine from Amazon are amazing!  No more stencil brushes for me!   

I splattered the inked panel with water, some watered down in, and some white ink.  I trimmed the panel slightly smaller than my card base so the edges don't peek out. 
I topped the inked panel with the new Beautiful Butterflies Sidekick Frame.   I stamped a sentiment from Blooming Greetings on the white cut out from the frame that I reserved.  To get the ombre inking on the sentiment I used a stamping tool.  I inked the top part of the die with pink and stamped, then I inked the bottom half of the stamp with orange and stamped. The places that were inked with both (the middle) created a third color.  I like how the sentiment mirrors the ombre inked background. 
The Beautiful Butterflies Sidekick Frame comes with a second die that cuts several size butterflies.  I cut some from scrap paper that I inked with distress ink and used them as embellishments around the sentiment. 
We'll be having a blog blitz showing you lots more with the new release beginning on August 13!  You won't want to miss seeing designs made with the new products and YES!  Lots of prizes are in store for YOU!

Hello Friends!

With all this sticky, hot weather we've been having lately, it's hard to imagine the kiddos headed off to school in less than a month! Soon we'll be watching out the windows as they head off to catch the bus. Yes, my friends, Autumn is right around the corner!


I created a fresh and fun CAS card with a few new friends and an old favorite. These sweet little Whittle Squirrels sit at the Grand Madison Window, surrounded by Stitched Oak Trio Leaves and a Whittle Maple Leaf. It's as easy breezy to make as the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies floating by!


Thanks so much for joining us today!

Cheerful Hello Card
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here today with a cheerful hello card using the new Poppystamps Butterfly Wings Clear Stamp Set.  I love how this stamp is a background stamp, so many things can be done with background stamps. 

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I used it to create a resist for the background on my card front. The "to my favorite bestie" is one of the sentiment stamps that comes with the Butterfly Wings Stamp Set. 
The "hello" is from the Poppystamps Luscious Script Die.

Blooming Garden Challenge Reminder
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

We are so glad you could stop by today, and take a look at this fun card I created for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! 


I have a little kitty who LOVES to help me with everything I do, especially with my tiny garden that I have out on our apartment lanai. My kitty and my small space garden inspired me to create this card for our April Challenge. These "Whittle" animals that all came out this year are some of my very favorites, and today's Whittle Cat is sweetly checking out the Folk Watering Can filled with tiny flowers from the Spring Pot Shelves.


To create this card, I started with some watercolor paper and sponged on Distress Oxide inks in shades of blues and greens, gently giving them a soft blend to look like an outdoor horizon. Then I splattered the paper with water and a paintbrush, which gives the inks these beautiful layers of color. Once the paper was completely dry, I then cut out the Pointed Rectangle Frame and the other cuts, and estimated where I wanted the horizon line to appear, then cut it out and adhered it to my white frame.


I adhered that to my card base, then added all my die cuts, arranging the flowers and leaves from the Spring Pot Shelves into the Folk Watering Can, and adding the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies and a few sequins. It's the perfect design for my small space inspired Blooming Garden card!


Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you will create for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! Just use at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, then link up your creation to our  current challenge page on the right! What are you growing in your garden?



Thanks so much for joining us today! We'll see you in the garden!

Miss You
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_23-02-2019_15-06-42-2-2

Have you seen the challenge on the Poppystamps blog for this month?  It's 'Spring Cleaning' time!

So if you have something old you could use hiding away in your stash, perhaps you would like to join us?

...  Or perhaps you prefer to make something Clean And Simple?

Either way, there is still time to play!

You have until 12am on March 28th, US EST to join in...  and a random winner does get a prize!

I've opted for a CAS card using one of Poppystamps older dies that IS still in stock...  the Powell Butterfly.

Want to know how this was made?


I've cut the Powell Butterfly from stamping card and simply used an ink dauber to add these two colours as symmetrically as I can.

Snapseed 2

Then I've created the smallest of ink splatters using this Twinkling H20 teal colour.  (For those of you unfamiliar with Twinkling H20's, they are a watercolour with added mica).

Once dry, I've simply stamped and heat embossed 'Miss You' from the new 'You Are Wonderful' Art Deco clear stamp set...

...  and I've added this Whittle Wood Frame using two layers glued together for added dimension.     


To finish, I've simply attached the butterfly from the centre, and once completely dry and secure...  added a touch more sparkle over the butterfly ink using a 'Clear Overlay'  pen by Spectrum Noir.



The beauty of a CAS card is that it never takes too long to make...

Thank you so much for stopping by today. x
