Hugs Easel Card
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome! One of the new die sets Poppystamps released this spring was the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set.

I've been oohing and awing over all the designers easel cards, and wanted to give it a go.


The set of dies has just about everything you need, but if you want to embellish further, there are coordinating dies you can add.

I cut the pieces from various card stock colors, and used a decorators gilt to add gold. This gold gilt I have had for eons, and it's still usable! I found something similar for you on Amazon, if you like the effect: DecoArt, Gold ML02C-28 Metallic Lustre Wax, 1-Ounce, Rush, 1 oz. I just used my finger to apply the gold gild. Very easy, and it accentuates the lines on the die cut, and gives my card a bit of bling.


All the pieces ready to assemble. You only apply glue to the fold strip, and the piece will fold flat to fit into an A2 sized envelope.


The easel is formed when the card top slides and stops on the bottom die cut. 


The inside reveals further greetings, a birthday wish.


A sideview and peek to the inside.


One last look at my easel card, this time photographed in the fairy garden, a gift from me to the grandchildren. Every year we add a piece or two. My easel card looks right at home nestled among tiny greens, and little boy fishing.

Hope you enjoyed my easel card, and are inspired to make one. 

Stay well my friends!

Washi Frame
by Sue McRae


Hello crafty friends, Sue here with a very quick and simple card idea. If you need a card in a hurry, this project is for you!


I took some of the Memory Box wide Washi Tape and covered an A2 sized card panel with each design of washi tape. These tapes are so pretty with the floral and greenery designs! Then all you have to do is pick a die to cut out from these washi panels. I chose the Adriana Square Frame and die cut it from each of the washi panels to see what kind of look I could get. In the end I chose the panel with the Sunset Blush Washi because I liked the random sprinkling of colours throughout and all the white space it still left on the frame. It reminded me of loose watercolouring. The good think is, I still have the other frames to quickly make another card when needed.


Since the Adriana Frame is square I decided to go for a square card. I cut a piece of blue striped patterned paper from the Springtime Bouquet Paper Pad to 4.25" square and adhered the frame ontop.


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in the centre of the frame and mounted this piece with foam tape and attached it to a 4.5" square card base.


To finish off the card I added a few gems for some sparkle. That's it and the card is complete!


I hope this gives you some ideas on using your washi tape with your dies to make quick and easy cards. 

Have a happy and safe crafty week!

Summer Beach
by Marybeth Lopez


 Hello! Hope you will all be enjoying the sun and beaches soon . I decided to make a bit of a beach-y card today. Using Poppystamps : Whittle dies all linked below.


I made a small slit in the circle to slide the whale in for just a bit. I have two cut circles glued together for this card, wanted just a bit of layers but still very easy and flat to mail.


After I die cut the little Whittle dies I used blender brushes to blend in my color with distressed oxide inks. One of my granddaughters had a beach panel she made while playing with the brushes so I decide to use what she already blended. I used the: Poppystamps Brilliant Rings ,  largest circle.


I placed the die over the spot of panel that I used so you can see what it looked like . Little Bailey made such a beautiful beach panel..... I really hated to cut into it. 



After I was done I added a few more splatters, my granddaughter already added a few to her beach panel. 


The base panel is watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby called Masters Touch, many of you ask me.


I hope you are all able to get outside and hopefully things will soon be back to normal. ( as much as possible) I hope you have some time to craft. I've found it a great blessing to have this hobby even more now.

Hope you have a great weekend and Happy Mothers day to you in USA





Friends Are Flowers That Never Fade..
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, my card today, using one sheet of paper! from Memory Box Springtime bouquet 6x6 paper pad, strips and spots.


I have used this pretty Poppystamp die "Adriana Square Frame" it measure 4 inches square. perfect to use Poppystamp Double Stitched Square frames..I have kept to Tone on Tone Lilac.


In white card I cut 2 Adriana Square Frame , I wanted to adhere together to add  strength to my top layer of paper.


Place your die in the center of this 6 x 6  paper and run through your die cutting machine.. Keep the waste!


I had lilac card the same colour tone as this paper,  using the Double Stitched dies I cut the largest in the set.


using wet glue (pva)  on the outermost adhere to the frame. You could at this stage make this into a shaker ..Before you adhere the Adriana square, use acetate on the stitched square and the adhere the Adriana onto acetate.. 


I have used 3d shaker foam tape, as this is narrow .. 


Adhere to 4" square.


Adhere the waste 6 x 6 paper to white card.


Sorry Colour not very good on this next picture.. but hopefully you`ll understand.. I adhered the topper to a white 4.1/4 inch mat... I have used  1.1/2 inch x 6.1/2 inch white card, wrapped white 1" satin  ribbon.. adhere this to the back,  my topper I adhered as shown.


I added a few finishing touch`s ..white gel pen on the leaves and Fairy Sugar "Lavender Ice" on the berries.. butterflies from Butterfly Symphony die  and bow.


Close up of the topper, hopefully you can see the delicate touch of glitter..

Thank you for stopping by Pam, stay safe  xxx.

Easy Flip Flop Card by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  Today I'm excited to share a unique flip-flop card idea.  It's got a full front panel, and the front floral "flips" to reveal the sentiment when the card is pulled.  The video below shows this card in action.


The Oval Fold Frame die makes this type of card very simple to make.  Again, the video will show exact measurements and instructions, but it doesn't take long at all!  I used the inner oval nesting die that comes with the Oval Fold Frame to create the base for the front. The flowers came from the beautiful Adriana Oval Frame for a white-on-white floral background texture.

I used the label from the Adriana Pop Easel Set to create a vase for this card.  I die cut it out of watercolor paper, and then watercolored some grays to create a cement look.  The Floral Cluster pieces were also cut and watercolored, along with Garden Leaves and Berries for the greenery.  Distress Oxide inks were used to create a colorful background.

Flip Flop Sentiment

When the card is pulled, the floral vase "flips" to reveal the sentiment.  For this card, I used a sentiment from the fun Birthday Blowout clear stamp set.  


The back of the card has a little floral blossom that was left over, and I just love the patterned paper from Memory Box's Springtime Bouquet 6x6 paper pad.  I hope you give this a try - it is a really fun card to make!  Thank you for stopping by today!
