Fern and Daisy
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends, hope you all are enjoying your day. 

Have you seen the new release from Poppystamps? Today, I am featured on the blog showcasing the new Fern and Daisy Pop-Up Easel set. This die set makes the most adorable easel card. But it also makes a wonderful card front focal image for regular A2 size cards as shown in my project today. 


To get started, you will first need to die cut the background panel from a piece of white card stock and the oval fern frame from a piece of green colored card stock. I am using a sage colored card stock from the new 6x6 Lush Green collection paper pack called Lush Green from Memory Box. 

Next with your Alcohol Markers in shades of green, add some depth and dimension shadows to the leaf images of the fern frame. For some of the fern pieces I colored them in a deeper shade of green for added interest. Then adhere the fern frame to the white background panel with some liquid adhesive.


Next, die cut an oval shape from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock using the oval die that comes in the set. Because the oval die cut provides raised  outline trim on the edge, I used my scissors to trim about 1/8 of an inch off of the white oval piece following this outline. I then sponged on some tumble glass Distress Oxide ink to the center and stamped my sentiment in Versa fine Onyx Black ink. The sentiment comes from the new Diamond Sentiment stamp set. 


Next I die cut the white daisy flower images from scraps of white card stock from my stash. I added Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to the flower petals along with a dollop of  Black Nuvo drops to each of the flower centers. I popped some of the flower images up on to the Fern frame with some dimensional foam tape. I also die cut 3 butterfly images and coordinating wings from the die set with  some gold card stock. Two of the butterfly images were popped up with foam tape. 


Lastly I adhered the decorated panel to a 4.0 x 5.25 piece of yellow card stock then glued the  entire card front to an A2 size white notecard.


This card is absolutely stunning. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and tutorial.  Until next time....happy crafting.

Multiple flower cards
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.


First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.

So there you have it. 5 quick cards for different occasions that are nice to have in your stash.

See you next time

Slimline Friendship Card
by Nadine Carlier

Friendship Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a slimline friendship card. I started with an 8.5" x 3.5" card base and using three different green inks and blended them to create an ombre effect from lightest to darkest. Then using another white piece of cardstock cut to 8.25" x 3.25" I cut out 3 squares using the Memory Box Square Basic Die Set and then adhered it to the front of the card base.
Then using some Rinea Foiled Paper in Emerald Glossy I die cut out the Berry Square Frame and adhered it to the square cutout I did in the white cardstock. I did the same for all the following dies.

I Think You Are Awesome Card

Awesome Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a simple red, white and blue card.  I first die cut out a few different sizes of the Flora Bloom Solids Die Set from a 4" x 5.25" card front and then adhered it to the largest Double Stitch Rectangle Frame that I cut out using the Memory Box Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad. Then I adhered the frame to the front of my card with 3D Foam adhesive.

Next, using the Flora Bloom Solids Die Set again I cut out the flowers using blue and red cardstock in the same sizes that I used on the white card front.  Then adhering the flowers into the cutouts from the white cardstock to the front of my card. Then using the Flora Blooms dies I cut them out in white cardstock in one flower size smaller than the blue and red ones and pop dotted them into the center of them to give my card some dimension. I stamped the sentiment using the Birch Press You Are Awesome Stamp Set.

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz
by Sue McRae


Welcome to another day of our Garden Variety Blog Blitz! Hope you’ve been enjoying all the amazing projects created by the design team!

I’m showcasing the Flora Bloom Solid Set which includes 5 dies. I only used the 2nd largest die on my card today. I die cut the bloom from white card stock, placed the new Whittle Spinner Background Die on top of the die cut and sent it back through my die cutting machine so it could add the swirly cut line design into the flower. I really love how this looks.


Next I took Distress Inks to add colour to the flower. I spritzed the flower with Perfect Pearls for some added shimmer and added gems to the flower centre.


I cut a piece of patterned paper from the new Garden Folly paper pack and adhered it to my card base and stamped my sentiment. I added a frame from white card stock using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames set, added my flower and tucked in the new Adriana Small Curve Border behind it. I finished off with a butterfly from the Intricate Cut Butterflies set.
