I’m a wife, doggy momma and retired nurse living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. More than twenty years ago I discovered stamping and was immediately hooked! Thanks to my paper crafting hobby, I now have friends all over the world. I’m so happy to be Tiffany’s guest designer this month. I hope you’ll find some inspiration in my card.

I live in the beautiful state of Maine, where the winters are long and summers whiz by in the blink of an eye. I try to spend as much time outside during the warm summer months, but during the long, cold winter months, I'm happily spending my time making cards and other paper crafts to share with friends and family.

As a graduate with a fine arts degree, I never really found a career that could fill my creative needs. I spent most of my time raising a family and in the travel industry as well education administration. Card making fulfills this need. While in college I could never decide what my “medium” was because I loved them all. Card making provides the opportunity to use multiple mediums. My cards are primarily created and given to organizations that share them with someone in need of a smile.

PSC#91 Add Texture!  Looking for an easy way to take your cards from ordinary to EXTRA-ordinary?  Just add a little contrasting texture!  We want you to go beyond smooth cardstock - add some dimension with contrasting textures like paste, embossing powders, embossing folders,  or with the addition of fabric or ribbon to make a big impression.       What a great opportunity to use something you already have or to try something new. like foundry wax or  glitz gels and glazes.  The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media.   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

Hello, I am a transplanter from Hong Kong, have been living in Canada for over 40 years. I am retired from being programmer analyst and spend most of my time paper crafting. I am addicted, I know!! LOL I also like making travel album and lately venturing into mix-media projects. I find my inspirations from challenge blogs, and Pinterest. But sometimes, when I am really stumped, I picked a product and start from there.

PSC#90 - Pretty Papers! Sometimes your designs need a little extra pop and that's where pretty papers come to the rescue! The addition of pattern paper, glitter, foil or pearlescent makes everything just a little more special. Making a masculine card? How about some cork, wood veneer or glossy papers? This time we want you to add some pretty papers to your design. The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media. It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration? Here are some samples from our design team. Want a closer look? No worries. We'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

Meet our March Guest - Rachel Duffy - who was selected by Sphoorti from our design team! Sphoorti says she's in awe of Rachel, who creates and sells beautiful cards and alcohol art - all for a good cause. All of Rachel's proceeds go to the British Heart Foundation. On top of that, Rachel uses 100% recycled products for her card bases, and tries to use other recycled materials as much as she can when she makes cards. Generous and kind - not just to people but the environment, too!

I got into cardmaking in early 2020, accidentally, as a result of trying to find ways to use up off-cuts of my alcohol ink paintings. I still love painting, but have also fallen in love with cardmaking as it enables me to more quickly create small pieces of artwork that I can easily mail to friends and family. I love creating cards with lots of color and sparkle (as my Insta handle implies!) to brighten up people's days.

PSC#89 - Heart-Felt!  This month we're doing a little play on words!  We're calling this month's challenge "Heartfelt" because we want you to add a heart and/or some felt to your project.   You can celebrate Valentine's Day with a heart or send a warm and cozy winter greeting with some soft fuzzy felt.  Felt is easy to cut with your dies and adds texture and dimension to your designs.  Why not add a felt heart?  The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media.   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

Meet our February Guest - Kim Heggins who was selected by Marybeth from our design team!  She says she calls Kim  "Martha Stewart" because she can do it all! Kim uses her time, cooking, crafting and sewing so wisely.  She's not sure how she does it and she can sew anything. Her generosity to others is also one of the many things I admire.
