For You
by Nancy Penir

Hello and welcome. It's the season of love, and I'm here reminding you Poppy has some love-ly new dies to grace your cards and tags.


The centerpiece of my card features a striking white and red heart, with layered blooms and die cut sentiment. My blooms are from the new Floral Vase Pop Up.


I started by foiling shimmer cardstock, and die cutting all my elements. I stuck to mostly Valentine colors: red, pink and white.

And I used shimmery and glittered cardstock.

I hope the recipient feels the love when he/she receives this card! And I hope you are inspired to put some bling on your Valentines!


Happy Valentines!

Slimline Adelaide Snowflakes Card
by Sphoorti



Hello Poppy Peeps!


It's Sphoorti, and I only have one card for you today, and it's such an easy one to make - you can whip it up in 30 minutes, tops!


I started off with the 2531 Adelaide Snowflakes craft die and cut some silver mirror, copper mirror, silver glitter, and gold glitter card stocks from the Glitter and Mirror pad assortments Poppystamps has.




I took a card base long enough to fit the five snowflakes and adhered the gorgeous snowflakes in a staggered fashion along the x-axis.




I hot foiled PSF808 Modest Greetings 2 on some white card stock with copper colored foil and chose the "You are the best" sentiment from it. I matted the sentiment with some silver glitter card stock.





I had some glitter washi tape that slightly matched one of the snowflakes, so I lined the card base with it along the top and bottom edges.




And you know what? That was it! So easy, yet so elegant and festive!


Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? I'd love to hear from you! Thank you for visiting! See you soon!

An Evening Valentine
by Rachel Duong

IMG_2005 (1)

Hello, this is Rachel here to share another heart card but this time with a little more color and a twist from the typical Valentine hues!  I gave it an elegant, emerald-teal shimmering background paired with a rich, burgundy organza ribbon. The candlelit gold and magenta mirrored accents bring it all together....and big hugs too! This Poppystamps valentine is for someone very special. 


Steps to create this card.
1. Hot foil the "Big Hugs" sentiment from the Poppystamps "You are Amazing Poe Script Greetings" hot foil and cut die set. Use rainbow foil on white. This sentiment will not be used on this card, so save it for another one.
2. Using the scrap of used foil from above, place on a solid metal plate and foil the negative view.
3. Die cut it out using the matching frame from the set. Die cut a second layer for extra height and interest if desired.
4. Using pale markers in yellow, pink and lavender, fill in the words to give the sentiment a warm candlelit glow.


5. Die cut the top heart from the Poppystamps "Vintage Scalloped Heart" dies in dark red card stock.
6. Blend two shades of brown oxide ink around the border leaving the center red. The lightest brown goes first and further toward the center, the darker brown around the outside edge to finish the look.
7. Die cut the scalloped heart in warm metallic gold from the Memory Box "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad".


8. Using the Poppystamps "Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame", cut hearts in the colors as follows.
a. Shiny magenta pink hearts - die cut a 1.5" strip of metallic magenta pink card stock from the Memory Box "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad". 
b. Chocolate brown hearts - die cut a strip of chocolate brown card stock. 
c. Brown and gold hearts - smudge embossing ink on a strip of brown card stock. Sprinkle gold embossing powder over the strip and heat emboss. Die cut the strip for beautiful two-toned hearts!
d. Dark red hearts - Splatter watered down white acrylic paint on a strip of dark red card stock. Run the strip through the cutting machine and collect the speckled hearts!


9. Make a square card base measuring 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 out of heavyweight dark gray card stock.
10. Cut a square measuring 4 1/8 x 4 1/8 from the Memory Box "Festive Glitter Pad" shimmering cardstock in emerald teal.
11. Tie a small ribbon with burgundy organza ribbon.
12. Adhere the pieces together. Double sided tape works best to adhere the glitter front to the base. 
13. Arrange the hearts and adhere using glue dots. Create balance by spreading out the colored hearts in a natural, organic way yet keeping the chocolate and red speckled hearts layered under the magenta and gold ones. These showstoppers should be front and forward!


Big hugs and lots of hearts to you. Have an enchanting day today until we meet again.  (In a few weeks!)



A Box of Chocolates
by Rachel Duong


Happy New Year!  I hope you are looking forward to good things in 2023.  This is me, Rachel, here to share with you a box of chocolates! I was absolutely thrilled when I saw the Poppystamps "Vintage Scalloped Heart" die. Immediately, a heart-shaped tin full of decadent chocolates came to mind.  I imagined rich, vibrant papers complete with sparkle and shine to create a delicious card.  Valentine's Day is just around the corner, here is my Valentine's Day card for you!

Steps to create this card.
1. Die cut the scalloped heart from the Poppystamps "Vintage Scalloped Heart" die from the Memory Box "Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad". The paper I chose is a pearl gold. It is gorgeous!
2. Die cut the heart with the sunburst accents using metallic red cardstock from the Memory Box "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad".
3. Die cut the Poppystamps "Sending Love Poe Script" sentiment in antique gold glitter paper from the Memory Box "Festive Glitter Pad". (Save the heart)


4. Using dark brown, die cut the Poppystamps "Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame" background die. (Save the little hearts for another card!)
5. Using a medium brown, cut an A2 size card front.
6. Finally, glue the pieces together. Don't forget the glitter heart!
7. Adhere to a black card base or any color of your choice!


Pictured are the amazing Poppystamps dies I used from the Valentine's release. 


I hope you love this Valentine as much as I do. It reminds me so much of sweet memories involving chocolate surprises! Fabulous glitter and beautiful shiny red paired with two shades of rich chocolate brown are just enough to add a warm sentimental glow.


May you have a beautiful day today. See you very soon. Until then, sending much love your way!

A Season of Joy
by Rachel Duong


Wishing you joy this holiday season! Hi, it's Rachel here to share two cards I made using the Poppystamps "Stacked Joy" craft die. This die is such a thrill to use and it makes a wonderful focal point. I cut it out in shimmering red glitter paper.... leaving me with pieces to create two festive and fun cards! How awesome is that?!


A close-up because the Open Studio "Fairy Jewels" are hard to see yet beautiful displayed on the wreath. The shimmering red glitter paper from the Memory Box "Glitzy Glitter Pad" is truly amazing!


These are the supplies I used. 


Steps to create this card.
1. Die cut the Poppystamps "Stacked Joy" using shimmering red cardstock from the "Glitzy Glitter Pad" and die cut it again in heavyweight white cardstock. (set aside the extra pieces for the next card)
2. Die cut the Poppystamps "Wintertime Snowflake Frame" in medium weight white cardstock.
3. Cut a dark gray A2 size card front from the Memory Box "Earth Neutral Collection".
4. Blend Distress Oxide and Distress inks in shades of green on a white piece of cardstock. Mist with water. Let dry. (save the extra green paper for the next card)
5. Die cut the Poppystamps "Pine Needle Shoots" die four to five times using the green blended paper from step four. 
6. Adhere the snowflake frame to the gray card front and then to a white card base.


7. Arrange the pine needles around the "O" in Joy. Trace a fine pencil line around the "O" for placement. Glue the needles down keeping the ends free. Save a few extra needles to overlap the sentiment.
8. Adhere Joy to the center. 
9. Tie a bow using baker's twine, string or ribbon and glue to the top of the "O".
10. Adhere Open Studio "Fairy Jewels" to the wreath
11. Trim the ends of the pine needle shoots. Curl up the ends for texture and character.


One more look, it was super fun to give the wreath a hair cut!

Transitioning into the second card-- here are the two cards side by side using the positive and negative pieces!


I love a card on kraft. It gives me a cozy warm feeling inside! 

Steps to create this card.
1. Use the die cuts from the first card in step one. ("Stacked Joy" cut from red glitter paper and heavy white cardstock.)
2. Die cut three layers of the snowflake in the Poppystamps "Snowflake Loop" die from white card stock.
3. Die cut the Poppystamps "Iced Pine Trees" using the leftover blended green paper in step four of the first card.
4. Die cut the "Iced Pine Trees" again in white cardstock for the snow caps and adhere to tree on random branches.


5. Using a brown marker, color the tree bases.
6. Cut an A2 size piece of kraft card stock. 
7. Blend brown distress ink lightly around the edges.
8. Adhere pieces to card front and then to kraft card base. 
9. Add a gold jewel from the Open Studio "Fairy Jewels" embellishment pack and red string to complete the card.


Additional supplies used to add to the ones used in the first card. The Poppystamps "Whittle Polar Bears" die? Scroll to the next frame to see where I used one of them!


11. Glue the little bear inside the card for a fun surprise to the recipient. This completes the card... I love little surprises!


Have a joy-filled day today. Thank you so much for your visit. Please let me know if you have any questions about how I made these cards. Take care and see you soon!
