You Goat This
by Nancy Penir


Welcome Poppy Friends! Have you tried an Easel Card yet? Poppy's newest is the cutest barn. 


Everything you need to make a pop up easel card is included in the set. What you can do with it, well, take a look at this 'farm girl's' barn with some of the new Whittles.


Oh yes, a chicken with eggs, a cow and a goat. This card lets you know the goat is a party animal!


And don't forget the chicks!

I used a bit of moss over the top window, and nestled the hen with eggs in the 'hay'.

Here's a tip to doing the barn. I ran it through once, and then again with my emboss rubber to get the deep impressions of the wood siding. Then inked it to look weathered.


The easel becomes flat and fits an A2 envelope perfectly.


The Whittle family is growing! Check back often to see the newest.

Thanks for visiting today, hope it brought you a smile!

Basket of Fun
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

We are so glad you have decided to hop on over to our Poppystamps blog today! Have you SEEN this adorable new Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set, new from Poppystamps?! Of course you have, because it creates the most wonderful Easter card, and all of the designers are putting together colorful baskets and bunnies just in time for Easter. Today I am sharing one more. Take a look!


There are so many ways you can create sweet little Easter scenes with just a few dies. I hope you've been following for a while and have had a chance to see just how much versatility is in the Pop Up Easel Sets, and all the amazing ideas our design team has been presenting. Today I created a colorful and cheery basket just using the die cuts cut from bright card stock.


I cut out all the pieces of the Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set, the Spring Bunnies, and the Farm Fresh Eggs, and assembled them onto the brilliantly designed base of the Woven basket Pop Up Easel card. All the hard work and measuring and sizing has already been done for you. Just cut out the images and adhere in place!


I cut out a few daisies from the fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set, and added them to my basket handle. Then I used a few sparkly drops of Open Studio Fairy Sugar in Strawberry Ice for the sparkly eye of the flowers.


I love how you can take the finished card and fold it flat to write a message on the inside, then put it inside an envelope. The card recipient can then open it up like an easel and display it among the jelly beans and the paper grass! Adorable!


Thank you so much for dropping by today!







Happy Easter Easel Card
by Sue McRae


Happy Monday! Sue here with a pop up Easter card today. I can’t believe Easter is less than 3 weeks away. I hope that means that spring is just around the corner.


For my card I used the new Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set which is perfect for making an Easter basket filled with eggs and bunnies.


I die cut the basket from kraft cardstock, left the die cut in the die and ran it through my die cutting machine with an embossing mat so that all the beautiful woven texture on the basket really pops. In the pic above the basket on the right was just run through the die cut machine once and the basket on the left was run through a second time with an embossing mat. You can really see how much dimension you get in the design by using an embossing mat.


To add more texture and depth and a bit of shine I used a sponge dauber to add gold acrylic paint on the raised areas.

I die cut the Spring Bunnies from the new Madras Plaid Blue & Violet Paper Pack. The plaid papers in this pad are wonderful and some of them have gold metallic lines in the design.


I took the Farm Fresh Eggs die and die cut them from a bunch of different cardstocks and I also used the grass die that comes in the Woven Basket Set and die cut it twice to add some depth to the basket.

After some fiddling to see what eggs would go where and the placement of the bunnies my basket was filled!


For the inside of the easel card I cut three layers of the Splendid Happy Easter sentiment and adhered it near the bottom. The sentiment is also what holds up the card front for displaying.


This card will mail flat and will fit into an A2 envelope just like all the Pop Up Easel Sets that Poppystamps makes. Love that!


The Woven Basket is a great die to add to your stash. It can be used all year long and filled with different items like a bunch of flowers for spring, fall leaves, pumpkins or how about a basket of ornaments for Christmas. Lots of possibilities with this die set.


Thanks for visiting with me and I hope you have a magical week!

Woven Easter Basket
by Jeanne Jachna


I'm excited for a change of seasons.  I'm starting to see greenery from bulbs that have laid dormant through the winter and can't wait to see the beautiful blooms that they'll bring. Until then I'm going to make my own flower garden with  die cut colorful cardstock.


I'm loving the two new easel dies in the latest Poppystamps release.  Fancy fold cards have always cofounded me.  These dies take out all the guess work and make a fussy looking card easy.   The easel sets die cut the card base, the card cover, and die cuts to embellish the front of the card. 


I cut the basket die from kraft card stock and then inserted the paper die cut back into the metal die.   I used a cosmetic brush and distress ink to bring out the woven detail on the basket.   


This card serves as a Spring or Easter greeting  AND propped up it doubles as a decoration to have on display to keep the recipient smiling!  


I added some flowers, a butterfly and some foliage from the Fern and Daisy Easel Pop Up set.  I love that these easel sets include lots of dies to embellish.  They can be used with or without the other dies in the set.  That adds versatility and more reasons to reach for these multi die easel sets.  


I tucked some colorful Farm Fresh Eggs and a cute Spring Bunny inside the basket.  Little details help bring your scenes to life! 


I hope you'll give Poppystamps Easel dies a try. They really come together easily and seriously.. if I can do a folded card you can too!  I'm so excited about how easy this came together and expect I'll make loads more to send to family and friends.

Happy Birthday.
by Pam Simpson


Hello everyone, I have used From 2021 Spring release. Memory Box 3D Embossing Folder "Blooming"  &  Poppystamps "Fern and Daisy Pop UP Easel die set. They work beautifully together, don`t you think!.


I started by embossing from the Memory Box. Polished Foil Pad paper pad, white..


I have cut using the Easel die one sheet from Memory Box "Fresh Aqua" paper pad.


To make the pattern pop, I have used a very old white ink pad, just swiped over the embossing with ink,  it is a firm cloth material! so perfect for doing this technique.


I have cut a white Base using the Fern and Daisy pop up die set. Adhered the whit panel to the inside, Aqua to the top, Next cut the beautiful panel in white adhere as shown


I dressed this with a mix of White and Aqua flowers/leaves and finished with Poppystamps.. Poe Script "Happy Birthday.. will finish the inside with a  verse when needed.


Hope you think like me, that embossing and die cutting looks lovely together.

Thank you for stopping by today Pam xx.
