Butterfly Easel Card
by Sue McRae

Welcome crafters to another Poppystamps post with Sue! I hope your summer has been going splendidly! We are having a heat wave in my neck of the woods and am grateful to have air conditioning!

Today I have an easel card for you using the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set. The easel card is really easy to put together and if you need some guidance Dave made a video showing you the steps to create an easel card. Watch the video here.

I die cut the base of the card from plum card stock. I then took the pretty butterfly patterned paper from the Springtime Bouquet Pad and adhered it to white cardstock to make it sturdier, as this will be the card front.

I die cut the butterfly panel with the Butterfly Symphony die and ran the die through my die cut machine once more with glitter cardstock so I could adhere the sparkly butterflies over the patterned butterflies on the panel. I really love all the layers of butterflies on this piece!

For the inside of the card I die cut a piece of pink cardstock.

For the sentiment I used the smallest Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame and die cut it from patterned paper and twice from white cardstock and adhered them together to make a thicker frame.

I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added it to the inside of the frame.

My final step was to add some iridescent sequins among the butterflies for a little sparkle and shine.

In the end I only used 2 of the 6 dies included in the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set so that you could see how to make this easel card using other Poppystamps products, not just the ones that come in the set.

This really is a versatile die that is great for many occasions all year long! I hope you include it in your crafty stash!

Summer birthday
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.593510977832E12

Hello everyone! Can you believe it's July? The last 4 months feel more like years. Right? It's officially summer though and we can at least enjoy the wonder of flowers. So today I have a dry embossed, watercolored card for you.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I started by applying ink to the inside of the embossing folder. I used Distress ink, since they're easy to clean. I spritzed a bit of water, wiped off the flower part as best I could, and laid the watercolor cardstock on top. I then ran it through my die cutting machine. Make sure you follow directions for your machine, these are thick embossing folders.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I first heat set the ink with my heat tool and then applied a dark yellow ink - pad directly to paper - over the sunflower. Notice that I got some yellow into the blue background. I'll cover that later. With a waterbrush I carried some of the ink to the rest of the petals. I again made sure it was completely dry before lightly running over my embossing ink. I did get more ink on than planned, but I had just reinked my pad. So that's something to keep in mind. I added a clear  glittery embossing powder and heat set that. Then I used my finger to dab embossing ink to the middle of the flower and applied an embossing powder that's a mix of gold, silver and copper. Watermark1.593510977832E12

I then cut my scallopped frame and placed over the sunflower. Here I've already cut off a couple of corners but you can still see that it's quite off set. I adhered the flower and frame to a white cardbase.

I cut a couple of butterflies and a happy birthday sentiment from glitter cardstock. I absolutely love this teal color and it's the perfect contrast to the yellow flower.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I adhered the sentiment cuts and then played around with placing the butterflies strategically to cover my ink pad mistakes from earlier. I didn't cover all of them, but most.

So there you have my sparkly flower card, and in case you missed it the challenge theme this month is Glim and Glam - add some sparkle.

See you next time. In the meantime, happy crafting!

Happy Birthday Stitched Tag
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 6

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here showcasing a cute and easy card using the new Happy Birthday Stitched Tag set. This two piece set that comes with a stitched tag and a happy birthday sentiment. This set can be used to make tags or embellish a card.  

Poppystamps 6.29.2

To make this card, you will need to die cut the tag twice from some patterned paper. I am using the Memory Box Springtime Bouquet Stripes and Dots paper. Next take the sentiment die and cut the Happy Birthday phrase three times from white card stock. You will want to die cut the sentiment multiple times so that it has some depth and dimension on your card. Adhere your three layers of sentiments using some liquid glue. Next glue your sentiment to one of the die cut tags. 

Poppystamps 6.29.4

Now using some scrap card stock from your stash die cut three butterflies in various sizes and pastel colors using the Intricate Cut Butterflies die. Adhere your your butterflies to both tags with foam tape. 

Poppystamps 6.29.3

With a sheet of 6x6 patterned paper from the Memory Box Springtime Bouquet paper pad, die cut your card front using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die. The die will cut both a frame and the inside portion of the frame. I reassembled both pieces back together onto an A2 size card base. Finally adhere your decorated tags to the card front with some foam tape.

Poppystamps 6.29.1

There you have it! A cute, simple and stunning card in minutes. Create a second tag to place onto a gift or gift bag and you will have an awesome presentation for wishing some a special Happy Birthday. I hope you have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!
