Floral Cake Card
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends, Candice here on the blog sharing a few new products from the latest release at Poppystamps. The new Floral Cake Pop-Up Easel set makes an adorable 2 tiered cake embellisehd with an array of flowers. This die set is perfect for making the one of a kind Cake shaped card that is perfect for celebrating weddings or any special occasion with a cake. 


To create this card I used the two cake dies and several of the flowers from the new Floral Cake Pop-Up Easel set. I used this image on an A2 size card instead of making in into an easel card. I love that the Pop-Up easel dies can be used in more ways than originally intended. 


For the sentiment on th card I am using the new Say It Big stamp and coordinating die set. Where I stamp the Thinking of You sentiment in versamark ing and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then die cut the sentiment with the coordinating dies that come in the stamp set. 


This card was very easy to put together. I die cut the flower and leaf images a few times in white, grey, green and gold carstock. Then assembeld each flower with two images stacked on top of each other with some liquid glue. I added clear gems to the centers of the flowers for a bit more embellishment. Then popped up a few of the flowers and the base of the cake with foam tape for added dimension. 


I think this card is absolutely stunning. I will certainly make a few more to have on hand to add to my wedding card stash. This die set can also be used to make traditional birthday cake, which I will be trying out as well. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting!

Hanging Basket
by Nancy Penir


Greetings all my Poppystamps friends! Nancy here, and I have a card to share with you, that gives the illusion of a hanging basket. 


All of us have dies in our collection that can do double duty, right? I came across a card on Pinterest (one of my favorite spots for inspiration), and decided to give it a try. Poppystamps has so many sweet floral dies, and many leafy ones too. I went through my stash and gathered all the supplies I thought would be fun in a hanging basket. Note: All supplies listed below.


Have you seen all the wonderful paper packs in our sister store, Memory Box? So many colors and hues to play with! I chose 2 greens from the Lush Green Collection.


Like my chain? Let me tell you how I made it. DSC_0193

I found a border die, that looked like a chain, but was straight on one edge. Turing it around, and carefully lining up the scallop and holes, I ran it through the die cutter again to create my chain.


What do you think? Looks like a chain, right? Maybe just a straight strip would also do the trick.


I had a need for a sympathy card, something I didn't seem to have handy. Hopefully this will bring cheer! 

Take care, and see how you can give double duty to those dies!

Teacher Appreciation Card
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey Poppy friends! Did you know that Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday, May 2? My husband has been a math teacher at a public school for nearly a decade so I know how hard teachers work. I decided to pull out some supplies and create a very clean and simple card to say thank you to one of the hardworking educators at my husband's school. I hope this inspires you to make a few cards for the dedicated educators in your life.

To start, I die cut a panel of white cardstock using the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate die and trimmed a quarter inch from two sides. I adhered the panel to an A2 card base. 


Next, using the Berry Red and Ocean Blue paper packs, I trimmed quarter inch strips with my paper trimmer. I trimmed a piece of copy paper to 4.5 x 3.25 inches and adhered the strips in alternating colors. I trimmed any excess hanging over. I backed the panel with fun foam for dimension and adhered to the card front.

Next, I worked on the sentiment. I die cut the word 'teacher' from white cardstock using the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I die cut each letter twice from cardstock and once from fun foam and adhered the layers together. Using the lines of the panel, I lined up and glued the letters across the panel with liquid glue. For a little extra detail, I added crystal glaze on each letter. I stamped the sub-sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set with prize ribbon distress oxide ink, cut it into a strip, and adhered with foam tape.


Lastly, I die cut the Whittle Pie die from white cardstock. With dye ink and copic markers, I colored the pie crust top. For the pie tin at the bottom, I die cut the piece from silver cardstock in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror pad. I adhered the crust with foam tape and then glued the completed pie above the letters.


If you make a card for an educator in your life, I'd love to see it. I think it would bring him or her so much joy. Please tag Poppystamps and me on Instagram. Happy crafting!

Joyful Moments
by Marybeth Lopez



Hello , Marybeth Lopez  here with you today.  I hope you are all doing well and enjoying each day. I created this card using the Poppystamps : Pinpoint Half Ring Plate for the background panel of this card. 



Next I used the Poppystamps : Scalloped Stitch Frames, to frame my sentiment  used from memory box stamp set called: Joyful Moments. I may use this as a Mother's Day card with a Mother's Day sentiment on the inside.


I took the Poppystamps Flower Field Corner and turned it up , using it in the middle. You could also add it on the top turned upside down the same way. I almost used it corner to corner and like that too. This is just a different way to use it.


Not sure why the center of my card is showing up a bit yellowish , its white like the panel .


A sampling of the Poppystamps  products I used, all linked below.


Thank you for visiting the Poppystamps blog today.

I have had the pot in the picture for many years, from Pottery Barn, don't you love the simple garden snail on it. Poppystamps has a big snail die at the store, fyi :)

I pray each day brings you joy. God bless and peace be with you all.







Wishing You Happiness
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey friends! Tiffany here with some Mother's Day inspiration for you. I combined several Poppystamps products to create this card so let's dive into the details.

First, I trimmed patterned paper from the Garden Folly paper pack to 4 x 5.25 in. Before adhering the panel to an A2 card base, I ink blended yellow dye ink on one corner for a little pop of color.

Next, I die cut several pieces from white cardstock. I die cut the Flower Field Tall Curve Border 4 times - to stack two on each side on of the panel. I die cut the Grand Madison Window die twice. Before adhering the window with foam tape for even more dimension, I backed the window with vellum and adhered the window on top of the border dies. Next, I die cut the Flower Field Corner die twice and adhered to opposite corners of the window.


Next, I die cut several yellow flowers using the Potpourri Flower Set and the Sunny Orange paper pack. I embellished each flower with Christmas Fairy Crystals in green.


For the sentiment, I die cut the word 'mom' twice - once from white cardstock and once from dark teal cardstock from the Fresh Aqua paper pack - with the Marzipan Alphabet dies.


Finally, I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card to finish the card. The sentiment is from the Colorful Life clear stamps set. I hope you enjoyed the card and are inspired to pull out a bunch of your Poppystamps supplies to create a special card for your mom, mother figure, or any other special woman in your life. Happy crafting!

Wishing You Strength
by Candice Crawford


Happy Tuesday crafty friends, Candice here on the blog to sharing a sympathy card. Sympathy cards are often pretty hard to make. I like to create them in batches ahead of time and have them on hand. Today's card is pretty quick and easy to make. 


The supplies used to make this card are the new Flower Field Frame die, the Basics Oval dies and the Coloful life sentiment stamp set. 


To make this card, I die cut the flower field frame from white cardstock 3 times and adhered it together with liquid glue. Next I die cut two layers of ovals from the Basic Oval set die. The smaller oval from black cardstock and the outline oval from white cardstock. 


Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Life sentiment stamp set from Versamark ink and heat embossed it with fine detail white embossing powder and my heat gun. Lastly I added some white irridescent gems to the center of several of the flowers for added dimension.


The card front panel was adhered to grey A2 cardbase that measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I hope you have enjoyed today's cardshare and found inspiration. Until next time....Happy crafting friends!
