Hi Crafty Friends,
I hope this card inspires you to plant some fresh herbs and embrace your green thumb. I used Poppy Stamps Flower Pots and Stems to create these cute little herb pots.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you grow herbs? Which ones?
A: Me? No, but my sister grows a ton of basil and rosemary

Final_5 (2)
I started my card by creating the background using Poppy Stamps Criss Cross Heart Stencil with Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn Ink and splattered with green and white paint.

I mounted the Poppy Stamps Scalloped Stitched Frames in two different shades of green cardstock and then mounted the entire background on a kraft cardstock card base.
Final_5 (2)I layered the cute flower pots with just the leaf dies to look like herbs in the center of my card and finished with the darling sentiments from the Poppy Stamps Spring Banner Stamps & Dies.

Corner Shop Wooden Cart
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6756

Hello there Poppystamps friends, Birgit here with you today to share this sweet card featuring the Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles from the latest release.

IMG_6750To begin with, here is a list of dies I chose to use in today's project.  I cut all of the elements out of #80 white cardstock.

IMG_6752I colored all of the elements from the Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles using copic markers and then assembled them as shown here, using liquid glue.

For the background, I cut a piece of printed paper from the 6x6 Glimmering Gladiola paper stack using the Double Scalloped Stitched Frames and mounted it over a piece of coordinating cardstock from the 6x6 Lagoon Solid Core Cardstock pack.  I cut the Scalloped Pinpoint Rings out of white cardstock and blended on a bit of color using Tumbled Glass DOX ink.

IMG_6754Next, I glued the wooden cart and floral elements onto the Scalloped Pinpoint Rings circle.

IMG_6759I added the butterflies from Bunches of Butterflies using two layers, folding up the wings for added dimension.

IMG_6757To finish the card off, I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Banners and cut it using the coordinating straight banner die and glued it to the bottom of the card.

Amazing Whittle Giraffe!
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6331
Howdy~ho Poppystamps friends!  I have the cuuuuutest card to share with you today, featuring the fun Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit.  Do you see a little sneak peek behind the scenes?  Lets jump right in and I'll give you all the details.

IMG_6327I knew I wanted to use the Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit, so I cut the giraffes out of a piece of pale yellow cardstock from the 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad.  I cut the tree pieces and the clouds out of a piece of white cardstock that had been previously embossed with a large polka dot pattern, which I found in my box of scraps.  I added color to each of the pieces using Copic markers on the giraffes and tree trunk and Distress Oxide inks on the clouds and tree canopies.  (I had cut two of the canopies).  Now what to do with the background??

IMG_6326I was a bit perplexed on what to do for a background until I came across the Nordic Flower Heads from the spring release.  I cut them out three times using soft yellow and soft orange from the same 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad, and a piece of cream colored cardstock from my scrap box.  I commenced to laying the flowers out in a random pattern, trying to mix up the colors as much as I could, while covering the front of an A2 sized card.  I snipped off the flower pieces that were overhanging the sides and cut a piece of vellum that measured 4"x5 1/4" and glued it to the top of the flowery background.

IMG_6329

Next, I glued the scenery pieces onto the front of the card, over the vellum layer.  I cut both the wavy and straight banners from the Sentimental Banners set out of white cardstock and had to decide which of the wonderful sentiments I was going to use.

I finally setting on "You are Amazing".

I think this card turned out so fun!

Spring Blooms
by Tricia Barber

IMG_4384

Hello!  I am so happy it is Spring!  I love the warm weather, planting flowers and pops of color everywhere!  Thinking of planting flowers is what inspired my card today.  I used the Nordic Flower Heads and Nordic Flower Pots and Stems dies to create a trio of bright and cheery flower pots!   I die cut the flowers and pots from several different colors of cardstock using Memory Box 6x6 pads and layered them together with some foam adhesive. 

IMG_4385
I used some Distress Oxide ink to darken my pots to look more like clay pots adding with a detail ink blender brush.  I had die cut the leaves and stems from different colors of green cardstock.  I mixed up the colors as I built my stems.  The background panel was die cut with the Cortina Pinpoint Plate.  I love all the details that this die adds to a card panel.   Poppystamps has the best details in their dies! 

IMG_4386

The sentiment was stamped and die cut with the Spring Banner craft die - this comes with the stamps and banner dies.   To finish off my card, I added some jute twine tied to the top.   I hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy Easter! "Mixed Media Mash-Up" Challenge Reminder
by Rachel Duong

 

IMG_4281

Hi It's Rachel here with a Happy Easter card in Mixed Media Mash-Up style! I used the Poppystamps "Thoughtful Bunny Duo" die. I hope you will join the Poppystamps Challenge. Just scroll down to the Challenge on the blog and click for all the details. 

IMG_4217

To create this card, I die cut the "Thoughtful Bunny Duo" using the "Delicate Glitter" and "Glitzy Glitter" pads. Next I die cut the "Proper Happy Easter" sentiment die from the "Rainbow Reflections Mirror" pad and the "Vibrant Violet" paper pad. (These paper pads by Memory Box are listed below.) I glued the pieces together and set them aside. 

IMG_4220

For the background, I used Open Studio Watercolor Paper, delicate finish. I layered distress inks mixed with generous amounts of water. Next I stamped "Banner Greetings" stamps over the lower portion of the cardfront. I used "Salty Ocean" distress ink and misted the sentiments with water to create a subtle, worn look. Then I ran embossing ink over the border and heat embossed silver powder to create a beautiful metallic frame. I roughed up the edges and wrapped teal jute string around the lower portion. 

IMG_4228

 I adhered the bunnies and sentiment to the cardfront and cardbase. Finally, I chose Open Studio "Fairy Jewels" to embellish the card in similar colors present on the background! 

IMG_4280
I hope you love this card, especially the layers of color. So much goodness!

I would also like to thank my talented friend, Alison Heikkila, for being my guest designer this month. She made the most stunning card in true Mixed Media form. Please check out her awesome card featured on the Challenge post!
