Spring Surprises
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Crafty Friends!

Thanks so much for dropping by today! I am having SO MUCH fun creating adorable spring scenes with our latest release from Poppystamps! Take a look at this Country Garden Wheelbarrow bringing a Spring Surprise!

IMG_6818-wm

This card takes a little bit of detail work to combine some of these tiny floral elements. I began by creating my card base with a bright green sky and grass background, using the new Hill and Valley Grass Border. then added the Country Garden Wheelbarrow.

I then cut the Peek a Boo Bunny in white, and a few Folk Decorated Eggs in in the pretty patterned paper from Memory Box, Springtime Bouquet. I added the bunny and an egg in the wheelbarrow, and then cut a combination of flowers, leaves, and berries to fill up the wheelbarrow, which was popped up with foam pop dots. This allowed me to place the leaves and flowers at different levels to create depth in the wheelbarrow.

Once all the flowers and leaves were in place, I brought out my FAVORITE addition to our latest release, Open Studio Fairy Sugar Glitter Glues in Strawberry Ice, Goldfinch, and Twilight. I added a tiny drop to the center of each flower. It really gives it a beautiful little sparkle when the light hits it just right. Finish the card with a few tiny butterflies from Butterfly Symphony, and you have one sweet spring surprise!

Happy Easter Using Rinea Foils
by Marybeth Lopez

E7CD162E-A991-44B2-9EAA-910376E7D2BA

Hello! Hope you are all hanging in there as this can be a difficult time and is for many. I pray you all stay healthy and may you know you are never alone. We have been sheltered in place for three weeks now . This shall pass.

Today I am sharing ( this new to me product) :Rinea foils, I love them! So many beautiful colors and textures on both sides. The foils are very easy to use, beautiful and hold their shape amazingly, not too thick and not too thin.

 I used the Poppystamps spring line new die called :Intricate Leaf Square Fame, a simple beauty!

I just layered the foil over my cardstock then ran it through the die cutting machine. Even though it stuck pretty good I took it off and added a bit of glue.

This picture above it what they looked like right out of the die machine. Sometime I use both layers and just give a turn then there would be 4 leaves. This time I sniped off one leaf to add to the pinks. Wanted it to be flower like with a leaf and yet keep it simple.

The choices of foils are many and even some patriotic colors along with fall and Christmas. Hope you give them a try.

Easter Card with Rinea Foil
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028

Greetings Poppy friends! And welcome to the Poppystamps blog, where we are partnering with Rinea - the maker of beautiful metallics and foiled papers. I've created an Easter Card to show you how beautifully they work with Poppystamps dies!

Many of the foiled papers are double sided, emboss like a dream, and when used with Ghost Ink (another product they sell), showcase embossed images. Read on for all the fun...

DSC_0019

Now because I used a delicate image die, I glued my sheet of pink Rinea foil to a piece of Cardstock before die cutting.

DSC_0023

With a small finger sponge, I tapped on the ghost ink pad, then lightly rubbed on just the image I wanted color removed. You can see on the flowers on the right, wherever the sponge was applied, the color is lifted. So cool, isn't it? 

DSC_0018

I added foam to the back for depth.

DSC_0017

You'll notice my branch is on the right of the card before I added the bunny, which will face the branch.

DSC_0016

I glued several strips of foil to Cardstock and die cut some eggs from each color.

DSC_0026

The basket is also cut from foil paper, which was first die cut, and again worked with the ghost ink.

DSC_0032

Ghost ink was lightly rubbed on the posies on the flower spray, before I added the Fairy sugar centers.

Foiled papers add glam to your design like no other! Hope you're as sold on these as I am. And hope you enjoyed a look at how easy and fun they are to use. 

Speaking of hope... I do hope you're all doing well, fully stocked in toilet paper and wipes, (wink wink) and especially chocolate!  Strange times, aren't they. Stay healthy friends!

Spring blog blitz Easel pop up card
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.584986460623E12

Hello everyone! Our spring blog blitz is in full swing and today I'm featuring the amazing Adriana pop up easel set. It's easy to use and very impactful! Although it looks like Easter has been cancelled here in Denmark due to the Corona virus, that won't stop me from sending out Easter cards. IMG_20200324_095953

I die cut all the pieces I needed from purple glitter and patterned paper.
IMG_20200324_095953

I folded the base along the creases from the die and added both double sided tape and liquid glue for a stronger hold. Since the patterned paper wouldn't be strong enough to stand I die cut the same piece from heavy weight white cardstock and adhered the patterned paper on top before placing it on top of the base. Watermark1.584986407317E12

The oval, leafy base I die cut from dark purple glitter paper and popped it up for dimension. The Wishful bunny is cut from pastel purple glitter paper and also popped up.
Watermark1.584986407317E12

I used some Fairy sugar for eye and nose, some ribbon for a bow and a tiny felt ball for a plushy tail.
Watermark1.584986407317E12

I die cut the medium sized tag from dark purple glitter paper and the same dotted patterned paper as the base. I stamped a sentiment and fuzzy cut around the edge of the patterned paper and glued it on top of the glitter tag.
Watermark1.584986460623E12

I held up the base at an angle to make sure I possitioned the tag in the correct spot on the inside.

Blog Blitz Spring Giveaway
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0027 2

Hello, my Poppy friends! How are you all doing? Staying well and safe I pray! Nancy here, and bringing some joy your way with our Spring Blog Blitz and giveaway! I'm showcasing a new die called, Adriana Tall Curved Border. Let's take a look...

DSC_0024

This lovely border die is as long as your A2 card, and can be used as an edge, but I'm going to show you something a bit different. I die cut it twice, and turned the pieces toward each other. You'll notice I cut the bottom leaves off the two die cuts. Read on to see why.

DSC_0014_wm

I gave my card the look of an arbor above a fence. Keeping with the spring theme, I kept the colors soft and pastel. And the bottom leaves just reach the bottom of the fence. The sentiment in the center is smoky blue rather than black, adding to the softness.

DSC_0025

The leaves are first wet with my paintbrush before adding color. I love how deeply impressed the leaves are, allowing the color to puddle a bit in the crevices. 

DSC_0042_wm

Detailing my card with a few more sprigs, some twine and some of the new glitter glue, and my cheery spring card is ready to send!

Spring Blog Blitz - Adriana Wreath
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6777-wm

Hello and Welcome All to our Spring Blog Blitz! We have got some fresh new products and beautiful designs from our talented design team all month long to help us chase away those winter blues! Today I am sharing my pretty spring wreath created with the brand new Adriana Wreath. Take a look!

IMG_6774-wm

The Adriana Wreath is an intricate one-piece die that packs a powerful punch! I started out by cutting the Wreath in a pretty lime green, then adhering it to my crisp white card base.

IMG_6754-wm

Then I selected my favorite spring pastel palette, and cut out a random pile of leaves, berries, and tiny blooms from the Garden Leaves and Berries, the Orchard Leaves, and the Floral Cluster die sets. I arranged them around my Wreath, then stared gluing. Soon I came up with a fresh spring look I love!

IMG_6756-wm

Then came my favorite part! I pulled out my brand new Fairy Sugar Glitter Glue from Memory Box Open Studio! I squirted tiny drops in the center of my tiny pink leaves in small drops of glittery goodness! Today I used Strawberry Ice, but you will want every color in your collection!

IMG_6758-wm

I added a few sparking sequins and voila! It looks like Paris in the Spring!
