I Scream You Scream for Ice Cream
by Candice Crawford


Hi there Poppystamps friends, Candice here on the blog sharing an adorable ice cream card using the new Grand Whittle Ice Cream Cone die. Its been a hot summer thus far so I thought it was best time to cool ourselves with a whimical card that would melt our hearts. 


To make this card I paired the Ice Cream Cone die with the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate for the background that was die cut from white cardstock. I created a frame for my focal image using the Double Stitched Scalloped Rectangles frame die that I die cut from teal cardstock. 


I die cut the ice cream image three times in pink, cream and teal cardstock. I created my own toppings for the cones by die cutting the ice cream portion from hot pink, dark brown and kraft colored cardstock and fuzzy cut the drippings image with my scissors. 


To add a bit od depth and dimension to the ice cream cones I used my white gel pen to create shadow marks. The punny sentiment on the card comes from the Poppystamps Life is Sweet clear stamp set. I hope you have enjoyed today's cardshare and found inspirarion. Until next time....Happy Crafting!

A Sweet Ice Cream Slimline
by Janet Katz

One of my favorite treats in the summer (and the rest of the year) is ice cream. The Grand Whittle Ice Cream Cone die is full of great etched detail as well as a cute stitched look on the edges. It cries out for a slimline card to stack up the scoops.

I knew I wanted to incorporate watercolor, so I used watercolor paper and colored five pieces using watercolor brush markers in 5 different turquoise and teal shades. I did some blending of a darker shade on the bottom of each piece. Lastly, I colored a piece the shade of a delicious sugar cone. I used the die set and cut my five scoops and one cone. To finish the look of the ice cream, I used a white gel pen to add a highlight to each scoop. Next, I took a 3" x 8" piece of white cardstock and lightly flicked on some of the same turquoise watercolor from two of the pens (I added water to the pen color first). Then I adhered my cone and all five scoops with foam adhesive onto the splattered card panel. I mounted this to a 3.25" x 8.25" piece of teal cardstock and then adhered this to a 3.5" x 8.5" card base.

I stamped the Cone-gratulations sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set in black onto a slip of white cardstock and cut each end at an angle. I adhered that to the cone. For the final flourish, I adhered some iridescent and turquoise sequins. I think a sweet, great nephew of mine will like this for his birthday.

Chocolate Cake
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello, Marybeth Lopez  here today sharing a Chocolate Cake, Father's Day card .

It was hard for me to make a card without much color, I needed to keep it masculine as it a card for my husband.  His absolute favorite is chocolate cake. 

I used one layer of the Poppystamps , Floral Cake Pop Up Easel Set, for the top I used the Layer Cake Drip Icing. I was going to add glossy accents to make it shine but didn't have the time to wait for it to dry this time.


The leaves are also from the Floral Cake Set, I used the Mirror Pad cardstock  and love the way they turned out. 

For the sentiment I used the Poppystamps Foil and Cut Die Set ( love this set so much) . My drip frosting is layered three times and for the bottom frosting I just cut and layered a bit over each one till the end , then covered with the die cut leaves.


The products are shown above and all linked below. When I used my foil machine last time I made many at the same time so I would have lots  sentiments ready made.


Our 46th Anniversary happens to fall on Father's Day this year. It will be nice to celebrate my amazing husband on the same day. 


Thank you so much for the visit. Hopefully you have some time to craft and enjoy some peace in creating. God bless and see you tomorrow with another card.





Teacher Appreciation Card
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey Poppy friends! Did you know that Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday, May 2? My husband has been a math teacher at a public school for nearly a decade so I know how hard teachers work. I decided to pull out some supplies and create a very clean and simple card to say thank you to one of the hardworking educators at my husband's school. I hope this inspires you to make a few cards for the dedicated educators in your life.

To start, I die cut a panel of white cardstock using the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate die and trimmed a quarter inch from two sides. I adhered the panel to an A2 card base. 


Next, using the Berry Red and Ocean Blue paper packs, I trimmed quarter inch strips with my paper trimmer. I trimmed a piece of copy paper to 4.5 x 3.25 inches and adhered the strips in alternating colors. I trimmed any excess hanging over. I backed the panel with fun foam for dimension and adhered to the card front.

Next, I worked on the sentiment. I die cut the word 'teacher' from white cardstock using the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I die cut each letter twice from cardstock and once from fun foam and adhered the layers together. Using the lines of the panel, I lined up and glued the letters across the panel with liquid glue. For a little extra detail, I added crystal glaze on each letter. I stamped the sub-sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set with prize ribbon distress oxide ink, cut it into a strip, and adhered with foam tape.


Lastly, I die cut the Whittle Pie die from white cardstock. With dye ink and copic markers, I colored the pie crust top. For the pie tin at the bottom, I die cut the piece from silver cardstock in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror pad. I adhered the crust with foam tape and then glued the completed pie above the letters.


If you make a card for an educator in your life, I'd love to see it. I think it would bring him or her so much joy. Please tag Poppystamps and me on Instagram. Happy crafting!

Challenge Reminder: Happy Birthday!
by Tiffany Pryce


Hi everyone! Tiffany here with a reminder of this month's challenge. It's a new year, so it is a perfect time to start on your birthday card stash. Our theme this month challenges you to do just that! Pull out your supplies and create a birthday related project. All types of projects are welcome, but please make sure to include at least one Poppystamps product. Read more details about this month's challenge on the blog.

For inspiration, I'm pulling out an oldie, but goodie - the Happy Birthday Background die. It was released many years ago, but it is still available in the shop. I think it makes the perfect clean and simple birthday card that you can decorate or style in many ways. I started by die cutting the background die twice from white cardstock. I stacked the two panels together and adhered with spray adhesive. I recommend reinforcing some intricate areas like inside the letters  with a little liquid glue to ensure the panels are glued together well.



Next, I die cut several Whittle Cupcakes and Whittle Ice Cream Cones from white cardstock. I colored each die cut with various pastel colors of copic markers. I also added some Fairy Sugar in the color Dewdrop on each die cut for a little sparkle. Pro tip: make sure you are squeezing out some test drops on scratch paper before bringing the drops to your project. My bottle squirted out everywhere, and thankfully it was not near my die cuts! Because it squirted everywhere, I decided to apply the drops with my fingers. I felt like I had more control and could spread a thin, even layer by using my fingers. So a blessing in disguise!


I arranged the die cuts on my panel and popped up each with foam tape for dimension. I had an extra ice cream cone so I pasted it flat inside the card for decoration. On vellum, I stamped and silver heat embossed a small, coordinating sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set. I adhered the sentiment strip behind one of the cupcakes and added small drops of liquid glue behind the heat embossing to hide the glue. To finish the card, I added a bow from twine in my stash.


Hope you are inspired to join us in this month's challenge. Happy crafting!

I love the variety of food-related Whittle dies along with the punny sentiments in Life is Sweet.  There is a wide variety of dies available from ice cream to popsicles, donuts to pies and the tacos, chips and avocados that I used on my card!  And the Life is Sweet set has sentiments for all of them.

We are a taco-loving family with a good guac on the side so I prepared this in advance for when I want to say "bravocado" to one of my sons!  I used the Whittle Taco and Nacho and the Whittle Avocado along with the Word Balloons for the sentiment.

9.20.21 PS dies BL

If you look at the picture of the Whittle Taco and Nacho you'll see that it's just the shells but I wanted to make my taco overflowing.  My taco shell is cut with the bigger one; I cut two and used on behind all of the stuff in my taco.  I used the smaller taco shell and cut it in orange and red to add the colors of cheese and tomatoes. Then I cut a nacho in green and trimmed the three little corners for my shreds of lettuce.  Finally just to be sure my sons knew the card came from me , I cut the avocado pit in white for a dollop of sour cream. (Everything is better with sour cream!!)

Because it's intended for one of my 20+-year old sons, I had originally just had the three little elements and their word balloons - but I decided a "bravocado" card need some color! So I trimmed strips of taco-related colors plus an aqua just for fun - then cut the whole thing with a stitched square.  I mounted it on white, then black. To mirror that, I mounted the word balloons on white.  It's a bright and festive card with a bit of a cartoony-look to it.  It will be perfect for them! And I hope I gave you some ideas for your next taco/avocado/nacho card!!
