Floral Frame Cards
by Sphoorti




Hello Poppy Peeps!


It's Sphoorti again!


I'm excited to share two beautiful cards with you today, and while they were both crafted in a similar manner, I'd love to delve into the details of my favorite one – the silver creation!




To kick things off, I used the 2552 Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set craft die and the 2469 Floral Cake Pop Up Easel craft die to cut out an array of leaves and stems. These pieces were then inked up with my usual favorite Distress Inks, including Wilted Violet, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, and Mermaid Lagoon. For an extra touch of shine, I added a splattering of perfect pearls. And because the shine wasn't enough, I coated some of the leaves with some some Wink of Stella.




Next, I used the 2474 Double Scalloped Stitched Frames craft die craft die to fashion two frames - one large, and one small - from some silver mirror cardstock. I nestled the intricately inked leaves within the space between these two frames.




To add a touch of dimension, I cut out multiple layers of white cardstock using the Playful Hugs die, creating a chipboard-like feel. Finally, I topped off this layered stack of hugs diecuts with the word one cut from the same exquisite silver mirror cardstock I used for the frames, and centered it on the card. And that was it!


I made the other card in a similar fashion, just swapped out the silver frames for black mirrored ones, and used a hotfoiled Hello sentiment instead of the Playful hugs.

Warmest Wishes Bird House Pop Up
By Birgit Norton

Hello friends!  Cardinals are beautiful birds, don't you think?  I'm an avid back yard bird watcher and I feed the birds year round, along with all the chipmunks and squirrels that help themselves to the black oil sunflower seeds we offer.  
Birdhouse Popup5
The Bird House Pop Up Easel Die Set from Poppystamps is the focus of my project today.  I've paired it with some flowers from the Potpourri Flower Set.
Let's get started.
First off, you'll have to cut two of the base  shapes. 
These will get glued together on the little scored flaps, on the short side.  This is the base of your easel pop up.  This step is so easy!  And now for the fun part...  Decorating it!
The cardinal and the pine sprigs are all included in this set.  I cut mine out of white cardstock and colored them using Copic markers.
I also cut out four different colors of flowers using the Potpourri Flower Set.
I cut the front frame of the birdhouse out of light blue cardstock and glued the card the layers together.  Once all the cutting and coloring were done it was time to decorate, popping flowers in here and there, and a few were popped up using foam dots.
I cut another layer of the same blue cardstock, using the birdhouse frame, for the inside of the card.  The sentiment is stamped using Gilded Christmas Wishes and cut using Colwell Label Set.  I chose this sentiment because I thought it would also work as a birthday greeting.  This is a great way to extend the use of your holiday stamps.
I finished the centers of each flower using Autumn Fairy Jewels.  These self adhesive jewels come in just about every color!

Amazing You!
by Rachel Duong


Hi friends, it's Rachel! I'm here with a new Poppystamps challenge. The theme is "Old School". Create a project using at least one Poppystamps die. Link it up and one lucky random winner will receive a prize. Florals are timeless and classic, so I am sharing a themed card using the beautiful "Perfect Posies Bouquet" die.


To create this card I die cut the Poppystamps "Perfect Posies Bouquet" and the "Teardrop Butterflies" dies in a sturdy white cardstock. I die cut the butterflies again using the Memory Box "Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad". Next I blended blue, green and teal distress ink over the bouquet. For dimensional effects, I doubled up some of the blossoms. For sparkle, I applied glitter glue to the blossom centers and petals. I chose a deep blue card base from the Memory Box "Ocean Blue" collection. A hot foil sentiment from the "Modest Banner Greetings" set adds a fresh silver accent. White splatters fill in empty space. Finally, an "Old School" sheer, organza ribbon finishes the card.


These are some of the supplies I used. 


Do you use organza ribbon on your cards? I remember the first time I was introduced to cardmaking, organza ribbon was often used. It is so delicate, soft and pretty enhancing many styles of cards.


I hope you get a chance to take part in this challenge. And by the way, with the start of a new school year, why not give your "Old School" card to a favorite teacher to tell them how amazing they are?! Have fun and don't forget to link your card up.

Take card and happy crafting~

Perfect Posies
by Tricia Barber

Posie 1


Hello!  Tricia Barber here sharing my first post for Poppy Stamps! I am super excited to be here! I love using dies to create cards and picked the Perfect Posies Bouquet to be the focal point of my card today.   There are so many ways that you can add color to your die cuts outside of using colored cardstock. I used my Copic markers to color the Perfect Posies Bouquet: RV52, RV55, RV66, YG01, YG23 and YG17.  I die cut an extra white card panel with the Perfect Posies die and then trimmed out several of the flowers to pop up on the card panel.

Posie 2

For my main panel, I die cut a kraft Evangeline Pinpoint Frame panel and layered onto a kraft card base with some liquid adhesive.   From some white cardstock I used the middle die from the Scalloped Stitch Frames die and layered on top of the kraft card panel.  I added my colored posie die cut onto the white frame with liquid adhesive. I used the trimmed out posies and popped up with foam adhesive.  I added details with a white gel pen and crystal glaze to the centers of the flowers.  By popping up the flowers you can add dimension to the die cut and give it a different look!   For some of the flowers I layered the flower so that it was offsetting the petals below it and others I layered exactly how they are on the die!

To finish off the card, I hot foiled a gold sentiment banner using the Modest Banner Greetings Foil and Cut die set and added to the card with foam tape.  I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!

Thinking of you Daisy
by Teresa


Hello my Friends!! I'm Teresa and this is my first post for Poppy Stamps. I'm so excited to be part of this team and wonderful company.

My card today uses some of my favorite things...daisies and scalloped frames!! As you get to know me, you'll find that I love flowers and frilly stuff.


I started by cutting the Delightful Daisy Die 3 times. On one of the die cuts, I ink blended the leaves with 3 different greens. This set cuts out the center of the daisies separately, so I inked those with 2 yellows for highlights and shadows and glued those to the inked leaves die cut.

I glued the other 2 daisy die cuts to the inked one for dimension and stability.


I cut the Pinpoint Halfring Plate from a spring green cardstock and added the Largest Scalloped Stitch Frame with Foam Tape.


Lastly, I created the sentiment with the with the "You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Foil & Cut" set. Hot Foiling is so fun and I create with it as often as I can. It also gives such a beautiful and crisp look to the sentiment. 

And what's a card without a little bling!! The Fairy Gemstones in "Winter Fantasy" were the perfect choice to finish this off.


Thank you so much for visiting and I hope I inspired you. Until next time, I hope you have a fantastic day!

You are Truly Wonderful

I have placed a pot of geraniums on our front porch every summer for as long as I can remember. With the exception of a couple of years, they have always been red.

The Brilliant Geraniums dies helped me to recreate those flowers to share with you today.

Just a few passes throught the die cut machine gives you all of the petals you need to put together pretty layered blooms.  A little drop of glue in the center of each layer allows you to lift the petals to give them fullness. The perfect spot for a butterfly to land!

My geraniums and butterflies were added to an inked woodgrain panel. The center was cut with an oval die from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel set. That set had just the butterflies I needed to top off my card. They're cut from Mirror Paper. Once again glued only at their centers so I could lift their fancy wings!

The leaves were colored with Copics on green cardstock then I used the colorless blender to give them a more natural look. I didn't do anything extra to the geranium petals because, honestly, they look just like the ones one our porch... a deep beautiful red!
