Happy Spring!
by Rachel Duong


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...


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. 


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.

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. 


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!

Spring Thyme
by Birgit Norton


Happy spring Poppy friends!  I'm delighted to bring you this sweet card today featuring some of the new dies from the Spring collection.  Let's hop right in!


I started by cutting the Nordic Pattern Rings out of kraft cardstock and the Cuddle Bunny out of white cardstock.  I colored the inside of the bunny ears using a copic marker and assembled the bunny. I mounted the circle onto the front of an A2 sized top folding cream colored card.


Next, I cut all the elements from the Nordic Flower Pots and Stems out of soft grey cardstock and colored the stems using Copic markers and then assembled the plant pots.

IMG_6150Next I played around with the layout until I was happy with it and glued the pieces down using liquid glue.  Look at all the detail in the kraft colored circle!  


Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Spring Banners onto a wavy banner, finishing the card.  I love that there are two choices of banner styles in the sentiment sets.  You get wavy or straight and there are so many wonderful sentiments to choose from.

Two For One Nordic Foxes
By Lisa Elton

I have a pair of cards for you today featuring the darling Nordic Foxes. I pulled terra cotta, pink and gold cardstocks, created the foxes then decided where they should go! Lets break down each card.

23  0922  012 copy

This one is perched on the sill of the Arched Gothic Cathedral Window. The window was placed on foiled plaid paper with vellum added behind the bottom window openings. I wanted to soften the plaid here so the fox would stand out.

There are two layers to this window die and the detail is just beatuiful! I used ivory and dusty lilac cardstocks to create mine.

Golden sprigs and tiny flowers also adorn the window sill along with a greeting for a friend.

This sweet fox was added to a card base covered with the Nordic Floral Plate. I used ivory cardstock and left all of the pieces intact.

The die lets you use it as I did, interchange, mix and match pieces to add color or even remove pieces. A very versatile die for your collection!

I used a tag as a resting place for this fox. A tag you ask... why  yes, it's the negative from the Cathedral Window die used on the first card! 23  1006  005 copy

I used the vanilla one to hold the sentiment on this card! You get a window die and tag dies all rolled into one. That's a win win!! Oh, and the pretty little decorative tag on this sentiment if from the Basic Junk Jouranl set. A splash of flowers to finish it off and add to the prettiness!

Boo to You!
by Birgit Norton


Hello Poppystamps fans!  Birgit here with you today with a clean and simple Halloween card.

I started with an A2 size, top folding, white card base.  I cut a piece of black cardstock that measured slightly smaller than the card base, to allow a white framed border.  Using my scoreboard, I scored horizontal lines every half inch and mounted it to the card base.


Now for the fun part.  Let the die cutting begin!  I cut the Small Madison Window out of the same black card stock that I used for the front panel.   I used distress oxide inks and blending sponges to loosely create the night sky scene through the window, adding a few black and white ink splatters to finish it off.  I glued the window on top of the sky scene and trimmed it with my scissors.  I die cut the pumpkin from white card stock and colored it using copic markers, mounting the pumpkin inside the window.


The little ghosts were also cut out of white card stock with just the lightest amount of distress ink to add depth.


To finish the card off, I die cut the letters using Marzipan Alphabet, out of black cardstock and the piece of the sky scene that I had trimmed off earlier. I glued the letters together, offsetting them to allow the colored letter to act as a shadow to the black letter.

Hello Fall
By Birgit Norton

Hello Fall2

Hello Poppystamps fans, Birgit here with you today!  I'm overjoyed to bring you my first post as a new design team member for Poppystamps.

Hello Fall2

Don't you just love the new fall release?  I started by running the Pinpoint Rings through my die cutting machine on a Kraft cardstock A2 size card base.  

Hello Fall2

I cut the Large Stitched Envelope out of black cardstock, filling it with several Whittle Oak Leaf, cut from orange and soft butter cardstock.  I tucked in a couple of the Mushrooms & Toadstools, and finished the card off using Marzipan Alphabet to create my sentiment.

Hello Fall2

I wish you the happiest fall season!
