Cascade of Posies
by Nancy Penir


Hi! I'm so glad you joined me today. I have a card made with a new Poppy die called, Pierced Finnegan Circle.


A friend of mine recently had shoulder surgery, and wanted her to know she's on my heart and mind. Here's a few of

what I used to create this card.


After running the die through the die cutting machine, I inked a bit of color to hi light the pierced design.


Blooming Border provided the posies and leaves, which I cut from vellum.


Lots of sequin flower centers, and a sweet 'feel better', and my card's ready to send!

Hope you got some inspiration today. And hope you have a 'craftilicous' day!

Peony Get Well
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog, Lezlye here today showcasing a NEW stamp set and coordinating dies.

I stamped the Peony flower on Neenah solar white yardstick and cut out with the perfectly precision die.  I chose a little deeper topic markers pictured below.


I drew up a sketch and  based my card off of it. I find this helps get the card design started if you ar having a mental mojo block...

I stamped with versa mark ink on my deep red yardstick circle with the dot texture from the set.


This Nuevo Glimmer paste is neat, it is thick and acts as a colored embossed look. Just look at that yummy texture and color.


I circle cut a apiece of vellum, stamped the sentiment on a flag banner. I used some twine for texture. Final step to add some sparkle, wink of Stella and star sequins.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did with this Fabulous new set perfect for coloring!

Feel Better Soon
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Susanna blossom poppy Welcome to Spring and allergies! Which then brings colds and other illnesses. So,  I Decided to make a cheerful Get well card. I used the Susanna Blossom Die to cut out on watercolor paper. I then used the Zig Kuretake watercolor markers to color my flowers. I then Bunched them together and tied with some hemp cord. Susanna 2 I added glossy accents to the flowers and then mounted them to the card panel with foam squares. I love to mat my focal image with several layers of colored card stock for a really nice finished card. Susanna3 have a lovely day! Lezlye Signature copy

Blog Blitz: Painted Rainbow
by JJ Bolton

It's the second day of the new release Blog Blitz and I have a fun, colorful, clean and simple get well card to share with you!  I'm using the new Paint Cans and Brush die set which is just so versatile!  I love watercolors, so this was a no-brainer for me:)  I started by die cutting the large paint can in silver metallic card stock.  Then I die cut it again using watercolor paper just for the "paint" piece inside the paint can.  


Next I die cut the little paintbrush in watercolor paper.  Then it was just a matter of using my watercolors to paint an arching rainbow across the card, onto the "paint" piece, and onto my paintbrush.  I really love how the rainbow is just bursting out of that tiny paint can!  The paint can and the brush are glued on with a bit of foam tape.  And the card is finished off with a sentiment from the Hope and Thanks set.  


Thanks so much for checking in today!  Don't forget that during the Blog Blitz, there is a giveaway for EACH post!  All you have to do is leave a comment to get the chance to win!  For my post, you get the chance to win the cute paint cans and brush die set!  I'm sure you could use this adorable set in your creative stash, right?

Pretty in Pink
by Marybeth Lopez



Hello and Happy first day of Hanukkah to all our Jewish friends!

I have been wanting to use this beautiful Poinsettia Stem die for a while. I chose to make a pretty pink one that could be used for ; birthday, get well and or Christmas.

I will stamp this card when I know what it will be used for. 


I placed the “Texture Wave Stencil” over a piece of white paper ( cut with Stitched Landscapes)  as if I were going to use a die ( no pads ) Like I have said before it gives a nice crisp impression.

I layered it with fun foam then adhered  to the card base so I won’t have any problem stamping it later because it will be even, unlike foam tape.

I sponged white paper first then cut out the flowers and leaves. I would then go over some of the petals and leaves  to give  darker shading as needed with the sponge.


 Thanks for the visit today!

Hang In There

Hang In There

It seems I'm always needing a little something to send to a friend who is a bit under the weather.  When Poppystamps introduced these cute little critter stamps, I thought the Squirrel would be perfect.  

I love white on white, with a pop of color.  I left the inside blank so I could add a little note of encouragement.  Another card that's perfect to have on hand.  

A little update:  Taylor and I are having a wonderful time.  We are now more than halfway through our vacation.  Our New Zealand friends are making our vacation perfect and we are so glad we were able to add them to our vacation plans.  Soon we'll be back in the states and the heat of summer.  Taylor will be heading off to college and I'll be getting back in the swing of as my husband calls it.....Normal living!

It was sad to leave my son, his wife and the friends we met while visiting.  It was most sad to leave the grandkids.  They grow so fast.  I'm looking forward to them visiting us in the States. 

Until next time.....Happy Crafting!

Embossing Die Cuts

Hi everyone, Sue here.  Today I want to talk about using other mediums on our die cuts to add texture and visual interest.

Hand In There Closeup

Most of the time we use white or coloured card stock with our dies and may use a medium such as ink, paint or glitter.  But what about using embossing powders or flock on die cuts? These products have been around for ages and are inexpensive to add to our stash.  They also come in oodles of different colours.

Poppystamps Embossed Weeping Willow

I die cut the Weeping Willow Branches from white card stock, used a Versamark ink pad (or any clear embossing ink) to cover the die cut, sprinkled it with a verdigris embossing powder (there are several colours in this powder) and heat set it.  Such an easy way to get some texture.

Poppystamps Embossed Kitty

I did the same thing with one of the Friendly Kitties die cut, this time using an embossing powder that has several shades of brown and brown glitter in it.

Poppystamps Fun Flock

For the last die cut I added double sided adhesive to white card stock, die cut the kitty and added fun flock on top of the adhesive.  Instant kitty softness!

Poppystamps Embossed Die Cuts

I used textured card stock for the card base and for the grass to add visual interest.  I also cut another Weeping Willow, this time from vellum to place behind the embossed Weeping Willow. This also adds depth and texture.

Hang In There Card

Did you know Poppystamps has Digital Dies that can be used with electronic die cut machines?  They can all be found here.  I used the Butterfly Chain Border Digital Die to create my butterflies, which were cut from white card stock and coloured with inks.

Hang In There

Thanks for visiting with me and I hope I've inspired you to try out some of these techniques.

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog. I have a couple of cards for you today. I made one of my usual watercolor backgrounds a Memorybox sentiment and flowers in bold black. I love this type of card and it is very versatile to send for any occasion.


My second card I used a glossy card stock.I created the background using distress inks and a sponge. You could do straight or wavy lines. I made this one while in Lake Tahoe. The beautiful blue water inspired me. I embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder, however I didn't have my embossing buddy with me and you can see where the n in soon slid. That is the only difficulty when using glossy card stock.
