Geranium Gatefold & Challenge Reminder
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6771

Good morning Poppystamps friends!  Birgit here with you today sharing a card to remind you of the current challenge that's going on right now, themed "Bloom Where You're Planted".
IMG_6771

I enjoyed bringing out some older dies that are still available in the store, hoping to inspire you to pull out those older supplies and use them.  

For my card, I brought out Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set and Picket Tall Curve Borders.

I cut the flowers out of Blush 6x6 Solid Core cardstock and the leaves out of Greenery 6x6 Solid Core cardstock.  I added colored details and depth using copic markers.   I added sugared glitter to the outside edge of the flower petals and added Fairy Jewels to the centers of each of the flowers.

On each of the gatefold flaps, I added a piece of cardstock from the Greenery 6x6 Solid Core cardstock and cut the Picket Tall Curve Borders out of the same color, adding them to both flaps.  This gives the look of a garden trellis in the background.  I added a white cardstock oval, gluing it to the left flap and adhered the geraniums, covering the oval.

I so enjoyed bringing out the tried and true dies that never go out of style for this challenge.  These geraniums are gorgeous in any color and they're so easy to assemble.   I hope I've inspired you today with this lovely geranium card.

Want to play along?

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.

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!

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!

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!

Sunrise Butterflies
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_8 (2)Hi Crafty Friends,
Spring is on it's way and hopefully that means beautiful butterflies everywhere (however, since I'm in the Midwest it's probably going to be more cicadas than butterflies BOO!). This orange delight features Poppy Stamps Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and Nordic Lacey Plate.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Are you getting the 17 year or 13 year cicadas this year?
A: Me? YES! We are supposed to be where they overlap so TRILLIONS

Final_1 (3)I started my card by by putting together the butterflies. I layered three different shades of orange from the Sunrise 6x6 Paper Pad for the main Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and then two layers for the small butterflies.  Next, I mounted the Nordic Lacey Plate on a light shade of orange and framed it on glitter paper from the Poppy Stamps Majestic Hues 6x6 Paper Pad. Finally, I add the Thinking of You Banner Sentiment from the Sentimental Banners Stamp & Die Set.

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!

A Bird Bunch Birthday
by Rachel Duong

IMG_4643

Hello there! It's Rachel, and I am excited to share a birthday card with a bunch of birds! I also want to remind you to join in our April Poppystamps Challenge. The theme is "Look Out The Window!" Create a card with a window or something that resembles a window on it. You can also create a scene as if you were looking out a window.

IMG_4637

My window card features fancy birds with so much pizazz! I used the Poppystamps "Nordic Bird Bunch" die, it comes with six birds. I die cut the birds using pearlescent white and aqua, navy and white glitter paper, and a periwinkle shade of blue. Paper comes from Memory Box paper packs listed below. I assembled the birds and I used a fine point black Sharpie marker to color the area for the eye. Also don't forget the orange beaks!

IMG_4643

Next I die cut the "Arched Gothic Cathedral Window" in white cardstock for the top piece and Memory Box "Anemone Grove" patterned paper for the accent. Using the negative shape of the window, I traced it on a piece of vellum, cut it out and glued it under the window.

IMG_4625

I die cut the "Nordic Lacy Plate" in a heavy white cardstock. This is a beautiful backdrop for any card occasion. Then I adhered the window to the background and adhered it to a white cardbase. 
IMG_4634

I arranged the birds on the card. I glued them down when I felt it looked just right. A Happy Birthday sentiment strip fit perfectly on the window trim. Finally I added a beautiful embellishment at the top of the window. 

IMG_4641

I had a blast creating this card, it is just too "tweet!" I love the shades of blue and the fancy papers with glitter and shine. The birds are so handsome in their sweaters!

That's all for today. Please join the challenge. Link up your photo and two winners will be selected. Good luck to you! See you very soon.
