A Floral Hello Card
by Sphoorti



Hello Poppy Peeps!


It's Sphoorti again, and today I have a card which uses the 2552 Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set craft die in a different way than intended. And this one's so easy to do, too!




I started by cutting up the some plain white cardstock with the bouquet (largest die) in the 2552 Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set. I glued a number of them together to get the "chipboard" like feel. On the top layer, I blended some distress oxide inks to get a pastel rainbowy look.  I cut the bouquet stems in the middle so that I could make it look longer than it is, and I put the sentiment in the middle. For the sentiment, I used a hello die and layered a number of die cuts to get a chipboard feel there too. I topped it off with silver glitter cardstock. I used the same silver glitter cardstock to mat the card panel on the right and left sides.




I embellished the card panel with matching colors of pearls around the bouquet, and adhered it to the card base, and that was it! The only tedious part of this card was the die cutting, but everything else came together really fast and easy!

Embossed Floral
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello and Happy May to you all. I had so much fun creating this card. I used the new memory box Gracious Floral 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Die, along with memory box Art Stencil Set called Gracious Floral.


I only colored some of the booms , you can detail it as much or as little as you want. I love the softness of this card .


I die-cut the single flower then placed it in the embossing folder, as in the photo above.  ( just line it up ) the detail after it is embossed is beautiful.


The sentiment is from Poppystamps called Modest Greetings 1 I popped up the cut flower with some foam tape.


Be careful with your panel when you are blending the colors using the stencil ( I got some on my panel) I was able to cut  most of it down. The ink that remained was easily erased with the sand eraser, pictured two photos below. It dose a beautiful job without messing up the paper. Just a little tip .


I used a few different shades of green  but when I did the other colors I used the same color and it just got darker as I kept layering with the new stencils.


I ended up not using the dark gray as pictured above and went wit a soft yellow center same color as the bloom. (Below)


Thank you so much for the visit, I hope I have inspired you to get some time in the craft room . 

I also want to wish a very Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. 

God bless you all.






Challenge Reminder ~ Flower Garden, Garden Kindness
by Rachel Duong


Hi, it's Rachel here with a spring card for the Poppystamps May Challenge-"Flower Garden!" The absolutely adorable Poppystamps "Whittle Happy Fox" and "Whittle Beaver" are joining in to say "Thanks for being kind".  We can never have too much kindness in the world! The "Leafy Vine Corner" die helps to showcase the beautiful spring day too. How is your spring going so far? I am gardening and cardmaking every day, two of my favorite things to do. 


These are the supplies I used for my card. The "Lucky Layered Flowers " dies and the "Layered Pointy Petals"  dies go perfectly on the "Leafy Vine Corner". The "Modest Banner Greetings Hot Foil Plate" is a must have. I use it all the time and looks great on everything! The "Heart Jumble" die makes a great  embellishment cut out in metallic gold. Save the extra hearts!


Steps to create this card.
1. Die cut the pieces in medium weight white cardstock.
2. Ink blend all using a mix of distress and distress oxide inks. Mask off the white portions of the fox before ink blending. The above picture shows another option to cut apart and color each individual piece of the fox.
3. Color the noses with a black marker.


4. Adhere the flowers to the vine.
5. Hot foil and die cut the "Thanks for being kind" sentiment.


6. Cut an A2 cardfront in vellum.
7. Using a black Sharpie pen, scribble over the vellum.
8. Drop isoprophyl alcohol over the pen. Use a paintbrush to move color around.
9. Glue vellum onto white card base.


10. Die cut the "Hearts Jumble" die. Use any type of paper that you like. I used a leftover brown heart that was embossed in gold!
11. Adhere the pieces to the card front to finish the card. What a cute duo!


Come along and join the challenge with your Poppystamps "Flower Garden" creation. Don't forget to link it up in the challenge section. I hope you love this card as much as I do. Pairing Poppystamps critters and flowers together are such a happy combination. They look so peaceful and relaxed. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the warmer weather this time of year!

Whittle Panda
by Candice Crawford



Hi Crafters, Candice here on the blog sharing another card inspiration. Today's card features the Whittle Panda Pickup Kit that come complete with a seven piece die set of whittle panda bears, bamboo, balloons and a pickup truck along with a sentiment stamp set with punny sentiments to match the cute little panda bears. 


I think the kits from Poppystamps are perfect for beginner card makers as you have everything you need to make a set of coordinated cards for any occasion. The card I made today can be used to send good well wishes or thinking of you thoughts to a friend or loved one. 


For the bamboo on the card, I die cut the stems from green cardstock and inked the tips of the leaves with my green Copic Markers for a bit of shading.  The background of the card was inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed onto some black cardstock. For the border of the card I used the Double Stitch Frame die that I cut from hello cardstock. 


I highly recommend the kit from Poppystamps. I am a huge fan of this set and can see myself using it over and over. I really liked how my card came together. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time crafters....Happy Crafting.Candice Floral Signature copy




Layered Tullips
by Candice Crawford



Hey there crafters, Candice here  with a great spring thank you card using the Layered Tulips die from Poppystamps. I think this die set is just adorable. The layered tulips look so realistic and are perfect as a standalone flower or paired inside a container. 


To create today's card I used several dies from Poppystamps. I used the Layered Tulips die along with the Scalloped Stitch Frames die and the Poppystamps Grand Watering Can die that is now retired. 


This card came together rather quickly. I die cut the tulips twice from two colors of yellow card stock and adhered the petals together with liquid glue. The watering can was cut from some dark grey cardstock and the scallop stich frame was die cut from white cardstock. The sentiment comes from the new Memory Box stamp set called  which I stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The completed card front was adhered to an A2 size yellow cardbase.

I really like how this card came out. The new Layered Tulips die set is becoming a fan favorite. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. Until next time crafters....Happy Crafting!

Rainbow Arch
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafters, Candice here with a card share for all of you using a few products from the new release. The new Rainbow Arch die is simply gorgeous. This die is very large and is perfect for a 5x7 card. I created a 5x7 card for you all today to showcase just how large the die can e a focal image on a card.


The other dies I used for today's card include the new Miss You Moonlight Script die for the sentiment on the card along with our previously released Sunbeam Frame die. 


For clouds on my card, I used the Whittle Rainbow and Unicorn Kit. These little clouds were a perfect addition for the rainbow arch die. 


To add a bit of interest on the card, I stenciled on some clouds for the background with tumble glass distress oxide ink and a blending brush using a cloud stencil from my stash. I also ink blended a bit of Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink on the sun rays image from the Sunbeam die cut to help the image stand out. 


I really like how this card came out. I am intrigued to make more 5x7 cards in the future. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time.... Happy Crafting!
