Hello Summer
by Nancy Penir


Summer's in full swing, and Poppystamps has some new alphabet dies that will help you make bright and happy summer cards!


I love creating a background from alphabet dies, and the new Marzipan Alphabet is bold and easy to cover the front of an A2 size card, or any size, for that matter.


I put the letters on a piece of washi tape, and cut them out 5 times. (Don't forget the extra M!)


There's a few ways to adhere your letters to the card, I chose to glue each one, which gives me time to eye how they're lining up.


Hello is from another of the new alphabet dies in the store, and has a die for the back of the word, 'Hello'.

I used vellum to back my word, and partially inked the back in aqua, kind of an ombre look.


This card's going to a grandson. I added the Whittle sea creatures because he loves anything sea related! I think the card would look cute with ice cream or popsicle dies too!

Hope your summer's full of sunshine, and of course, happy crafting!

How Are You with Marzipan
by Kim Singdahlsen

BL 7.13.21 Poppystamps side

There's a brand new stamp and die set called Marzipan Alphabet Outline and Background clear stamp and die set.  I created my card with the full focus on these fun letters!  (If you don't want to stamp and cut individual letters, there's another new set called Marzipan Greetings that has full words with sentiment add-ons.  And there's a stand-alone Marzipan Alphabet die set that has the same look without stamping first! It's all in the 2021 Summer Theater release.)

BL7.13.21 Poppystamps dies

You can see that the stamp set has a solid stamp and a detail stamp for each letter. Then the set comes with dies to cut them out.

Since it's a "chatty" card, I decided to use the Word Balloons in the background.  The die comes with five shapes and sizes, so I cut a number of them and lined them up down the middle.

I definitely wanted to keep this card clean and fresh so the letters were the stars! I added a rainbow strip of coordinating cardstock down the side and stopped at that.

I hope you check out the new release. The Marzipan products are just a small part of it. I'm in awe of the creativity that is shown with each and every new product!Kim Floral Signature copy



Blooming Thank You and Hello
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey crafty friends! Today, I'm sharing how I combined color blocking and embossing folders. I wanted to see if I could use my embossing folder in a slightly different way for a new look. 

First, I selected four colors of cardstock and cut each piece down to 5.75 x 4.5 inches. This would be a great chance to create a monochromatic card or play with a unique color combo you've been meaning to try. I used the Sunny Orange paper pack and the Fresh Aqua paper pack for my two cards. I then created an A2 template from copy paper to map out my cut marks. You can create your template however you'd like, but I think the fewer lines, the easier it is to complete the final card panel. 


Since the template is smaller than your cardstock, use a ruler to extend the lines so you know where to cut on each cardstock panel. I used temporary adhesive to glue two cardstock panels together so I could cut two panels together at one time.


Once your panels are cut, add adhesive to the template, select the pieces in the order you would like, and adhere to the template. Once all four color blocks are adhered together, run through the embossing folder using the instructions for your die cutting machine. I think creating the color block panel before running through the Blooming 3D Embossing Folder is much, much easier than embossing each piece of cardstock and then trying to piece it together. Ask me how I know, haha (the yellow panel was done the hard way)! After embossing, trim down the panel to an A2 size.


To finish the cards, I kept it pretty simple. For the blue panel, I lightly rubbed white pigment ink over the panel to add ink to the raised areas. I die cut a vellum circle from the Stitched Circle Layers die and die cut the Thank You Flourish die four times from white cardstock. Finally, I added several Fairy Drops for a little shine.



For the yellow panel, I trimmed it down to slightly less than an A2 card. I lightly rubbed gold pigment ink over the panel to add ink to the raised areas. Then, I die cut the Hello Folksy Script die three times from white cardstock and once from gold foil cardstock from the Polished Foil paper pack. I adhered the sentiment with foam tape on top of a simple wreath made from the Garden Leaves and Berries die.



Hope you were inspired to try something new with your embossing folders and colorful cardstock. If you make something inspired by my cards, please tag Poppystamps and me on IG. I'd love to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello Summer
by Tiffany Pryce


Hi friends! Tiffany here with a simple and fun design using one of my favorite mediums - pigment powder! I chose to play along with this month's challenge so I wanted to use warm colors to mimic a beautiful, summer sky at sunset.

On heavy, watercolor paper, I sprinkled some yellow pigment powder and sprayed it liberally with clean water. I love watching the pigment powder burst with color upon contact with water. I used a watercolor brush to move the color around and add a little more texture to the panel. I repeated these steps several times with 3 more colors - orange, red, and purple. I went back and forth with the colors, splattered the watercolor, and mixed the colors for additional interest. There is no right or wrong way to do this, just let loose and have fun! I set the panel aside to dry for a long time before moving on to the next steps. I deepened the color here and there even after it was initially dry until I achieved my desired intensity.

Once my panel was done and completely dry, I trimmed it down to an A2 size. Then I cut the panel into five pieces with the Whittle Cloud Border die. With leftover scraps of watercolored paper, I also die cut several clouds using the Whittle Clouds die. I made sure to die cut clouds in multiple colors.


After die cutting all of my clouds, I started to assemble my card front. On a piece of white copy paper that I trimmed to an A2 size, I adhered the cloud pieces. It was like a puzzle which was fun to do. I varied how I adhered the panels - some were adhered directly to the base with liquid glue, others with a layer or two of foam tape. I liked the background having layers and dimension to give the card additional interest. Once the background was assembled, I added several small clouds in various colors around the panel as embellishments. Lastly, I splattered metallic, gold watercolor paint all over the panel for some sparkle.




For the sentiment, I used the Luscious Script Hello die. I cut the shadow layer from vellum and the sentiment from light gold foil from the Polished Foil paper pad. I added a little dimension to the die cut by cutting the sentiment again in white and adhering it behind the vellum shadow layer. This is a trick that I learned that helps raise the vellum off the card base thus making it slightly more opaque. I finished with a final small cloud adhered with foam tape on the sentiment, and that's it!


Hope you enjoyed my card and found some inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!

Hello Sunshine!

Whittle Flamingos-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU2

Well hello sunshine!  The weather has been so fine here that I've been day dreaming of vacationing in warm tropical places.  As usual.. whenever I get a longing for something.. you know... flowers in the winter,  and Christmas in July I start to make.  My paper crafting is my sweet escape.

Whittle Flamingos-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-Side

Today I'm sharing a fun scene of some Whittle Flamingos having a pool party!  The background is a double panel of aqua card stock.   The Whittle Wave Background die cut makes a splash pool for the Whittle Flamingos.

Of course the sun is shining and here are a few scattered clouds in the sky.  The flamingos are cut from two shades of grapefruit cardstock because we all like to be individual!  I like that the Whittle Flamingo die cut includes three different shaped legs so you can pose the flirty birds however you like.  I used a sharpie to add black accents to their bills.

Fish from the Whittle Fish Trio are swimming in the splash pool, and when the sun gets too hot the Whittle Flamingos can seek shelter under the Whittle Palm Tree.  I added brown enamel dots because they look like coconuts and I can't resist a little bling.

Enjoy the day and if the sun's not shining remember that you can make your own weather!

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.
