A Simple Hello
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello there friends of Poppystamps ! Marybeth Lopez  , here today sharing a simple, hello card to brighten anyones day. I did some ink blending on white cardstock then used the beautiful: Poppystamps Pinpoint Half Ring Plate. Oh how I love the subtle texture it gives to any panel. I will be using this one quite a bit.


Above you can see I started at the bottom on the panel and worked my way up. 


I used the Poppystamps :Hello Poe Script and die cut it out of memory box glitter paper, linked below.

I also added bits of glitter to the beautiful blooms from memory box called All the Happiness also linked below.


I will be honest , at first I had a different Design  for this card and then messed it up, so I needed something large to cover up my mistake, the  large bloom was just the ticket. I think it was a happy accident as I like this much better. I still think enough of the pretty panel shows nicely.


Below is a close up of the beautiful detail from the Pinpoint plate. 



I didn't want to color the large bloom as I wanted the background  to shine , I do love uncolored images on cards.


I hope you like my happy mistake today. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, I will be back soon with another card. 

Take care.





Layered Backgrounds.
by Pam Simpson


Simply yet effective using Background plates from Poppystamps together..Gorgeous colour  Glitter Paper from Memory Box  Glitter Pad. Graceful Garden.


Look how these two background plate`s look together, Lattice Plate using white card and double diamond lattice plate, using glitter card. I have adhered these together 


Card size 5 inch x 7 inch..this is the size of the finished card, I am using Pinpoint Half ring to create a border as well as using the cut out.


3 mm thick double sided 3 d foam, around the rectangle.


Main card..Adhere the frame with 3 d foam ..next  using wet glue (pva) place the  center panel inside..hope you agree how pretty these background panels look together.


This touch of black, really makes the pink and white pop! Sentiment Memory Box. Big and Little Reverse Words,  Versafine Onyx black ink..cut with the matching die. Grosgrain bow. Orchard leaves in green card.


I did not want to waste my glitter cutout diamonds, random placed in the background,..


Hope I have given you some ideas to use background cutting plates, sure you`ll find many more uses for them..

Thank you for stopping by Pam xx

Happy Birthday Masculine Card
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome, Poppy friends! I have a couple of birthday cards to share today. If you find making masculine cards a challenge, you're going to love this post! I have several men in my life (one hubs and 2 sons, not to mention uncles and grand boys!)


On a stenciled design, ala Fractional Diamond Stencil by Open Studio (Memory Box), I began by stenciling with white paste onto teal and purple cardstock. Then had some fun spraying with colors laced with mica. It totally stands out on dark cardstock!


The 2 stenciled cards, once dried, are sprayed again and again, until the desired effect is achieved. (Let the layers dry between sprays). I wiped the white with a paper towel. The diamonds retain just a bit of the stain, which I loved, and the cracks and center have the stain intact.


I wanted Poppystamps' new Birthday die to be the focal point, and so I added the oval vellum and fun foam behind and to the die  script. Here's a tip to working with intricate dies:


I can't take credit for this idea, saw it on a video by a well know designer, and loved it! Fun foam is available in many colors, and you can find a stack of colors for very little money on Amazon. This particular stack I purchased has one sticky side. Now when you die cut your image, or in this case, script, leave the words in place. Glue to the front of the letters and your words will be exactly where you want them. Pretty cool, eh?


I really love doing cards 2 at a time, especially when the technique is such fun.


Just the perfect birthday greeting for special men in my life!

Hope you're inspired to give these techniques a try. Poppystamps has some wonderful new script dies in the store. And don't forget the stencils and new paper packs in the Memory Box Store! 

Have a wonderful, crafty rest of the week! Nancy Floral Signature copy
