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




Happy Easter Easel Card
by Sue McRae


Happy Monday! Sue here with a pop up Easter card today. I can’t believe Easter is less than 3 weeks away. I hope that means that spring is just around the corner.


For my card I used the new Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set which is perfect for making an Easter basket filled with eggs and bunnies.


I die cut the basket from kraft cardstock, left the die cut in the die and ran it through my die cutting machine with an embossing mat so that all the beautiful woven texture on the basket really pops. In the pic above the basket on the right was just run through the die cut machine once and the basket on the left was run through a second time with an embossing mat. You can really see how much dimension you get in the design by using an embossing mat.


To add more texture and depth and a bit of shine I used a sponge dauber to add gold acrylic paint on the raised areas.

I die cut the Spring Bunnies from the new Madras Plaid Blue & Violet Paper Pack. The plaid papers in this pad are wonderful and some of them have gold metallic lines in the design.


I took the Farm Fresh Eggs die and die cut them from a bunch of different cardstocks and I also used the grass die that comes in the Woven Basket Set and die cut it twice to add some depth to the basket.

After some fiddling to see what eggs would go where and the placement of the bunnies my basket was filled!


For the inside of the easel card I cut three layers of the Splendid Happy Easter sentiment and adhered it near the bottom. The sentiment is also what holds up the card front for displaying.


This card will mail flat and will fit into an A2 envelope just like all the Pop Up Easel Sets that Poppystamps makes. Love that!


The Woven Basket is a great die to add to your stash. It can be used all year long and filled with different items like a bunch of flowers for spring, fall leaves, pumpkins or how about a basket of ornaments for Christmas. Lots of possibilities with this die set.


Thanks for visiting with me and I hope you have a magical week!

Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome! If you love bright, happy and spring color, you're in for a treat today! Nancy here and I've been playing with Poppystamps' newest release. Oh my, Spring Bliss!


Have you created a slimline card yet? I'll share a secret with you, this is my first. Couldn't resist Poppy's new Leafy Vines Slim Plate. It packs a wow on a slim line card! Here's a quick and easy 'how to' for you.


Here's a photo of measurements that will get you the base for a slim line card. 8" x 8 3/4", fold down the middle, and the beautiful Leafy Vines Slim Plate fits perfectly on the card's front, with a nice edged frame too.


Then the fun begins! Pale Eastery pastel? Monotone single color? Or Bright no holds barred wake up color! Just had to celebrate the season's change with a bold punch of color for this card!


My card's a slimline shaker with the new Farm Fresh Eggs cut from Glitter Card Stock moving around inside. I threw in some spring sequins too.


Pretty much an afternoon of decorating bliss on the front of a card! The slim lines fit easily in a business size envelope, or you can find colors online on Amazon and many  hobby stores too.


Hope you're inspired to try a slimline. Be sure to check out the Poppystamps' store for all the newest stamps and dies. And a big shoutout to our sister stores, Memory Box and Birch Press for their latest. New paper packs that will thrill! Hugs, all!

Graceful Heart Frame
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends! Candice here, back on the blog to share another Valentine's Day card. 

Today's project uses the Graceful Heart Frame that was released last year and still available for purchase. This die is so stunning and is perfect for doing a paper piecing technique. 


To get started, you will need to first die cut the Heart Frame image 3 times using Metallic Gold, Red Glitter, and Dark Green cardstock. Next, you will remove the gold inside pieces of the image from the frame and simply adhere the frame to your white A2 card base with some liquid adhesive.

If you own Stick It adhesive, you could apply the Stick It to each of the sheets of cardstock, before die cutting the frame multiple times.  This would allow for the frame and each of the inside pieces to become a sticker and make it easier to paper piece the card together. 


Next you will adhere the coordinating red glitter heart and large leaf pieces into the gold frame outline using some liquid adhesive. Once all of the glitter pieces are adhered. You will then adhere the coordinating green cardstock pieces for the smaller leaf images into the gold frame. 


Lastly you will stamp the sentiment Happy Valentine's Day from the Valentine's Fun stamp set in Versafine Onxy Black ink and your card is done. Simple, quick and stunning! If you are intending to make several Valentines' Day cards this season, this design can be mass produced. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time....Happy Crafting!
