Corner Shop Pop-Up Easel Card
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6775
I would love to live in a world where the streets are lined with darling shops like this!  Wouldn't you?  Birgit here with you today sharing a pop-up easel card using Corner Shoppe Pop-up Easel Set as well as coordinating die sets from the latest release.  Let's jump right in to the details!

IMG_6761

To begin with, I cut the pop-up die panel out of 80# white cardstock and folded on both of the score lines, to create the easel part of the card.

Next, cut one card front panel and adhere it to the small flap of the easel, using a strong double sided tape or liquid glue.  Now, let the fun begin!  Let's build the shop.

IMG_6763

I cut the store front out of a piece of blue cardstock from the 6x6 Lagoon Solid Core Cardstock.  I love the weight and thickness of this cardstock and it cuts like butter using Poppystamps dies.

I cut the detail pieces of the shop out of white cardstock and added color using Distress inks and blending brushes.  A helpful tip:  keep your cardstock pieces inside the dies, to use them as stencils.  Poppystamps is brilliant in their designs!

Next, I cut elements from Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles and colored them using my copic markers.  I then arranged all of the planters using liquid glue. 

IMG_6776Now it's time to decorate the shop!  

IMG_6767

A card like this deserves special attention on the inside, so I added a piece of decorative paper from my scrap bin and cut a white cardstock square to give the easel something to rest against to hold the easel open.  For a finishing touch, I added the window box from the set.  It adds a nice detail but leaves plenty of space for me to personalize this beautiful card.

Here's a pictures that shows the completed easel card in action.

Hi crafty friends! It's Rachel here to share a delicious and yummy birthday gift card holder using the Poppystamps " Corner Shoppe Birthday Treats and Birthday Celebrations" die sets. They are festive and perfect for that special day. I paired it with the "Basic Junk Journal Set", it has a great inside pocket for a gift card. How sweet it is! 

IMG_5101

The front cover is decorated with oh so many balloons in shades of pinks, mauves and lavender. The glitter balloons add an extra special touch. A cake over a ribbon wrapped vellum envelope and a silver embossed sentiment adorn the cover. Fairy drops in the lower left corner add interest and fun.

IMG_5111

Open the card and a pocket is waiting to be filled with a gift card for the recipient. Pink streames add to the festivity. On the right is space to write a message and a cupcake, nom nom!

IMG_5112

And under the message is a secret little vellum envelope holding balloons and an ice cream cone on top. Do you see the balloon that is getting away?!

Finally, the back is decorated with three double scoop ice cream cones!

April Showers Bring Purple May Flowers
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_6Hi Crafty Friends,
Did April Showers bring May Flowers for you? They did for this card featuring Poppy Stamps Nordic Flower Heads in my favorite shades of purple.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite spring flower?
A: Me? I like tulips

Final_9I started my card with the Circling Frame Die cut from white cardstock and mounted on my white card base. Next, I die cut the Nordic Flowers in all the shades of purple from the Poppy Stamps 6x6 Twilight Purple Paper Pad.

Final_7Next, I layered the flowers and arranged them on the corners of my cards. I used the "Happy" from the Proper Happy Easter Die set for the center of my card. I finished my card with the Poppy Stamps Spring Banners at the top and bottom.

Amazing Whittle Giraffe!
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6331
Howdy~ho Poppystamps friends!  I have the cuuuuutest card to share with you today, featuring the fun Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit.  Do you see a little sneak peek behind the scenes?  Lets jump right in and I'll give you all the details.

IMG_6327I knew I wanted to use the Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit, so I cut the giraffes out of a piece of pale yellow cardstock from the 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad.  I cut the tree pieces and the clouds out of a piece of white cardstock that had been previously embossed with a large polka dot pattern, which I found in my box of scraps.  I added color to each of the pieces using Copic markers on the giraffes and tree trunk and Distress Oxide inks on the clouds and tree canopies.  (I had cut two of the canopies).  Now what to do with the background??

IMG_6326I was a bit perplexed on what to do for a background until I came across the Nordic Flower Heads from the spring release.  I cut them out three times using soft yellow and soft orange from the same 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad, and a piece of cream colored cardstock from my scrap box.  I commenced to laying the flowers out in a random pattern, trying to mix up the colors as much as I could, while covering the front of an A2 sized card.  I snipped off the flower pieces that were overhanging the sides and cut a piece of vellum that measured 4"x5 1/4" and glued it to the top of the flowery background.

IMG_6329

Next, I glued the scenery pieces onto the front of the card, over the vellum layer.  I cut both the wavy and straight banners from the Sentimental Banners set out of white cardstock and had to decide which of the wonderful sentiments I was going to use.

I finally setting on "You are Amazing".

I think this card turned out so fun!

Happy Spring!
by Rachel Duong

IMG_4881

Hi Everyone! It's spring and have I told you how much I love the weather?! Not only that, but the birds chirping is music to my ears. I am back with another Poppystamps card using the "Nordic Bird Bunch!"  Casually sitting on a fence, these birds are enjoying a peaceful morning. Leftover die cuts on hand, these birds are from my Challenge Reminder post. Let's get started...

IMG_4876

The "Nordic Bird Bunch" birds were die cut in glitter, pearlescent, and shades of blue and orange(for the beaks) paper. The Memory box paper packs are listed below. 

IMG_4866

I chose a patterned paper from the Memory Box "Anemone Grove" paper pack for the background. Next I ran an Open Studio embossing folder "Vintage Tray" through my die cutting machine with an aqua shade of blue cardstock. I cut the paper down to look like a fence and blended distress ink over the texture to enhance the lines. IMG_4860

I die cut a speech bubble from the Poppystamps "Word Balloons" set. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Poppystamps "Spring Banners" clear stamp set in black Versafine ink.

IMG_4864
Putting the card together was fast. I glued the pattern paper on to a white card base and then the fence comes next in the lower half of the card. The birds are arranged with the sentiment and I glued it down when I was satisfied with placements. 

IMG_4851

I added Fairy Jewels in light turquoise nest to the sentiment and under the birds. Bakers twine in aqua and white tied in a double bow complete the card. Yay!

IMG_4879That's it for now. I hope you get a chance to craft and create peaceful spring makes. There are so many Poppystamps dies to choose from. See you soon, take care!

It's A Celebration!
by Rachel Duong

IMG_4825

It's a birthday celebration! Hi, I am Rachel, back with a card using the latest Poppystamps release. I cannot express how much fun these party goods are to create with. The dies have happy, joy and yum written all over them. So I can't wait any longer, let me tell you how I made this card!

IMG_4814

I began my card with the background. I die cut the Poppystamps "Scallop Pinpoint Rings" using three shades of purplish pinks. After I decided which colors go where, I glued them down to a light grey cardbase. 

IMG_4782

 Next I die cut tons of pieces from the "Corner Shoppe Birthday Treats", the "Corner Shoppe Birthday Celebrations", and the "Corner Shoppe Dessert Stand". I used many colors, glitters and pearlized papers. Fun was putting the color combinations together!IMG_4772

I used pearlized silver for the display stands and pearlized gold for the coverings on them. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in silver. The die comes with the stamp set. For an accent, I cut a fine strip of silver glitter to add over the top of the sentiment.
IMG_4766

The candles on the cake are die cut in pearlized white. I embellished the flames with Stickles yellow and orange glitter glue. The banners are cut in many papers, I also die cut two in the purplish pink papers and left in one layer to act as a background. I added jewels on the pearlized green streamer!IMG_4759

I arranged the cupcakes so that each base was a different color. I mixed up the sizes but kept them symmetrical. I added cupcakes at the bottom to fill in empty space and two jewels for balance.

IMG_4763

The sparkle and shine of these amazing papers add so much dimension to this awesome card.  I had the happiest time putting these desserts together. And it made me hungry! 

IMG_4816

I hope you grab a few of these die sets. I can think of so many fun ideas to try! Also, there are more pieces I can't wait to play with. The cake comes with another layer and balloons too! Oh, did I mention there are ice cream cones too?!

Have a great day. Celebrate something fun today. I am celebrating spring!
