Happy Birthday
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there, hope you are all doing well , finding lots of crafty time .  Marybeth Lopez  here today with a  bright Poppystamps Birthday card. Using some older and new dies.


Not sure if you can see in the photo above...  the dots of glue  that I used to adhere three layers of the : Happy Birthday die . I cut two layers in cardstock and the top layer in foil from , memory mox linked below. See how tiny the tip of my glue is.



I love the variety of 6 x6 paper packs available from Poppystamps and memory box.


I used the stitched rectangles dies (linked below) the center layer is blended with oxide inks and my blending brush. The beautiful plaid is coral and greens with bits of gold foil , that's why I did the top layer in very light gold-ish foil. I love the simplicity of this card and yet it is full of brightens and happy colors.


I hope you find some time in to craft and be happy. God bless you all.

Take care






A Simple Hello
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello there friends of Poppystamps ! Marybeth Lopez  , here today sharing a simple, hello card to brighten anyones day. I did some ink blending on white cardstock then used the beautiful: Poppystamps Pinpoint Half Ring Plate. Oh how I love the subtle texture it gives to any panel. I will be using this one quite a bit.


Above you can see I started at the bottom on the panel and worked my way up. 


I used the Poppystamps :Hello Poe Script and die cut it out of memory box glitter paper, linked below.

I also added bits of glitter to the beautiful blooms from memory box called All the Happiness also linked below.


I will be honest , at first I had a different Design  for this card and then messed it up, so I needed something large to cover up my mistake, the  large bloom was just the ticket. I think it was a happy accident as I like this much better. I still think enough of the pretty panel shows nicely.


Below is a close up of the beautiful detail from the Pinpoint plate. 



I didn't want to color the large bloom as I wanted the background  to shine , I do love uncolored images on cards.


I hope you like my happy mistake today. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, I will be back soon with another card. 

Take care.





Happy Easter Card
by Candice Crawford


Happy Wednesday crafty friends! Hope you are doing well and staying safe. 

Easter is this Sunday and there is still time to make your handmade Easter cards. If you a bit of inspiration, the new Woven Basket Pop Up Easel set is perfect for making your 2021 Easter cards. 

This set comes with the basket shaped cardbase, a layering piece for the basket along with the basket, grass, and bow. You can make the card as a Pop-up easel card or simply layer the basket image onto an A2 size card like I did here. 


This card came together quickly and easily.

First, I die cut the basket image from some cream colored cardstock and and inked the raised portions of the image with my Gathered Twigs distress oxide ink. 

Next, I die cut the layering piece of the basket from some white cardstock and inked the center of the panel with some Tumbled Glass distress ink. Then I die cut the grass image from some green cardstock. 

I adhered the grass image to detailed basket image. then adhered both pieces to the white basket layer panel. 


Next I die cut the easter eggs from the new Farm Fresh Eggs die from white cardstock and colored the eggs with my Kitch Flamingo, Cracked Pistachio and Mustard Seed distress ink. I also die cut the easter bunny for the basket from some chocolate brown cardstock using the Spring Bunnies die. Lastly I die cut the bow and sentiment from some gold colored cardstock. 


I adhered the grass, eggs, bunny and bow to the basket using some liquid adhesive. Then I attached the completed basket to the white basket layering piece. I popped up the entire basket image onto a pink A2 size cardbase using some 3M foam adhesive. Lastly I added the Happy Easter die cut sentiment to the card.  This card is so adorable and I was amazed at how quickly it came together. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time...Happy Crafting!

Easter Basket Slimline Card
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello , hope you are all having some fun crafty time. Marybeth Lopez  here today for Poppystamps with a slimline card using a few more dies than I normally do. Trying not to make it too busy for me, only used two colors , three if you count the neutral basket .


The basket is two layers so I could have a smooth underside and tuck in some of the grass and bunnies. I lightly added some glitter to the basket ( mostly because I got a glue smudge on it) Below you can see the color pads I used for the basket and the grass.   I staggered three layers of the grass, then gave the grass a bit of a trim to shorten the blades of grass. I ink blended the white embossed panel with a light pink , using oxide inks and blending brushes.


I used memory box colors, Earth Neutral and Lush Green, both linked below. I so love having all the colors of the beautiful new paper pads. 


Long time ago I needed the long plates ( big shot) for a die I had (never needed again until now) and boy or boy am I glad I kept them and or have them. You don't have to have them for slimline cards but it its nice.

I used the die : Leafy Vines Slim Plate to Emboss not cut , all you need to do is use the sandwich for embossing so that it won't cut. The black is a thin embossing pad. I then adhered the : Slim Leafy die to the pink panel.


I really like the way this turned out even with my little mistake because I always love some added glitter.


I hope I have inspired you to have some crafty time and maybe even to do some shopping at the Poppystamps store , so many new spring stamps and dies.

We've been blessed with some beautiful sunny weather and now we will be getting some much needed rain.

Hope you have a wonderful week. God bless you all.






Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome! If you love bright, happy and spring color, you're in for a treat today! Nancy here and I've been playing with Poppystamps' newest release. Oh my, Spring Bliss!


Have you created a slimline card yet? I'll share a secret with you, this is my first. Couldn't resist Poppy's new Leafy Vines Slim Plate. It packs a wow on a slim line card! Here's a quick and easy 'how to' for you.


Here's a photo of measurements that will get you the base for a slim line card. 8" x 8 3/4", fold down the middle, and the beautiful Leafy Vines Slim Plate fits perfectly on the card's front, with a nice edged frame too.


Then the fun begins! Pale Eastery pastel? Monotone single color? Or Bright no holds barred wake up color! Just had to celebrate the season's change with a bold punch of color for this card!


My card's a slimline shaker with the new Farm Fresh Eggs cut from Glitter Card Stock moving around inside. I threw in some spring sequins too.


Pretty much an afternoon of decorating bliss on the front of a card! The slim lines fit easily in a business size envelope, or you can find colors online on Amazon and many  hobby stores too.


Hope you're inspired to try a slimline. Be sure to check out the Poppystamps' store for all the newest stamps and dies. And a big shoutout to our sister stores, Memory Box and Birch Press for their latest. New paper packs that will thrill! Hugs, all!

Fern and Daisy
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends, hope you all are enjoying your day. 

Have you seen the new release from Poppystamps? Today, I am featured on the blog showcasing the new Fern and Daisy Pop-Up Easel set. This die set makes the most adorable easel card. But it also makes a wonderful card front focal image for regular A2 size cards as shown in my project today. 


To get started, you will first need to die cut the background panel from a piece of white card stock and the oval fern frame from a piece of green colored card stock. I am using a sage colored card stock from the new 6x6 Lush Green collection paper pack called Lush Green from Memory Box. 

Next with your Alcohol Markers in shades of green, add some depth and dimension shadows to the leaf images of the fern frame. For some of the fern pieces I colored them in a deeper shade of green for added interest. Then adhere the fern frame to the white background panel with some liquid adhesive.


Next, die cut an oval shape from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock using the oval die that comes in the set. Because the oval die cut provides raised  outline trim on the edge, I used my scissors to trim about 1/8 of an inch off of the white oval piece following this outline. I then sponged on some tumble glass Distress Oxide ink to the center and stamped my sentiment in Versa fine Onyx Black ink. The sentiment comes from the new Diamond Sentiment stamp set. 


Next I die cut the white daisy flower images from scraps of white card stock from my stash. I added Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to the flower petals along with a dollop of  Black Nuvo drops to each of the flower centers. I popped some of the flower images up on to the Fern frame with some dimensional foam tape. I also die cut 3 butterfly images and coordinating wings from the die set with  some gold card stock. Two of the butterfly images were popped up with foam tape. 


Lastly I adhered the decorated panel to a 4.0 x 5.25 piece of yellow card stock then glued the  entire card front to an A2 size white notecard.


This card is absolutely stunning. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and tutorial.  Until next time....happy crafting.
