Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0012

Hi and Happy Spring Break, and to all who celebrate... Happy Easter! My garden has begun to bloom, and we're enjoying fields of green and pops of color in my valley.

I have a card duo for you today, using the 2 new stamp sets from Poppystamps, one plaid, and the other floral.

The top is stamped with Flower Garden, and the bottom with Picnic Plaid.

2 wonderful all over stamps, that cover a large area.

I used the outer area frame of Memory Box: Egg Basket Frame, and created my own grass with a set of scissors that cut several 'blades' of grass at once.

One card is stamped and assembled on white card stock, the other on lavender.

I always find it easy to do 2 cards at one time, with just a little changeup. I left the sweet egg die attached so I could cut many eggs at once, each with different textures. How fun is that! Nuvo Crystal Drops for tulip centers.

Hope you found some inspiration today. And hope your week is full of crafty goodness!

Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0022 2

Greetings and Happy Spring to all! I have a trio of Spring/Easter cards for you today, with background designer paper I made with Poppystamps new Picnic Plaid. 

DSC_0002

Once I got this generously sized plaid stamp into my Misti, it was hard to stop! As you can see, I used pastels and knew I wanted to create Easter cards.

DSC_0005

I used 2 main dies, coloring only one main image and mixing colors with my Distress Oxides.

My tip for the day: use Q-tips for small spaces, and mix colors for a marbled look. It works great! Notice how I added pink to the bunny's cheeks and ears.

Easy breezy to get a soft pastel pink just where you want it with a Q-tip.

3 cards, easily done with a fun plaid stamp, and plenty of papers left over to do more!

Have a great weekend!

by Nadine Carlier

Friendship Card using Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a CAS friendship card that could also easily be made into a Valentine's card as well.  I used the new Tumbled Heart Balloon Collage and the Whittle Elephant dies along with the Love and Friendship stamp set all from the new 2019 Valentine release.

Valentine Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0071

Hello, Poppy Peeps! Didn't you just love all the new Valentine Stamps and dies showcased these past two weeks? I have a Valentine card for you using some of the new release. Come along and take a look.

DSC_0068_wm

Hearts are the image of love and Valentines. And Poppy has a new die called Wavy Heart I'm lovin'!

You'll be happy to know Wavy Heart fits perfectly inside the new Pinpoint Hearts dies.

DSC_0001

Like I said, a perfect fit!

DSC_0070

I gave my background some glam with the heart stencil that comes with Sidekick frame. Not too much, just some subtle heart texture. And sponge inked the wavy heart with Oxide pinks, keeping all the die cut pieces in place.

DSC_0076

My die cut sentiment, from Doodle Happy Valentines Day is cut twice, once from silver and then backed with black. Love to back my die cut sentiments, really makes them stand out.

DSC_0007

Hope you're inspired today, and hope I got some creative juices flowing! Happy Crafting, all!

The cupcake die cuts in two pieces, the top and bottom, and gives you the option of coloring or decorating your cupcake in so many ways. I used copics in bright pink and blue. Then blended with my colorless blender.

Valentine Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello and welcome to the Poppystamps Blog Blitz!  You have a chance to with the Pinpoint Hearts from Poppystamps just by leaving a comment on this post. I love the 4 line pinpoint dots that from the heart on this craft die .

IMG_8973

I was going to use the embossed hearts altogether at first but later chanced my mind. If you want to give it a try don't cut them apart right away.

IMG_9084

I used the Pinpoint die to make the dotted heart then cut a few layers and colors for the center heart,, from Deco Shining Heart. The top pink heart has some fun foam on the back to pop it up.

I then cut the Happy Valentine's Day with the new Poppystamps Doodle craft die, all listed and linked below.

Hi everyone! It's crunch time at the Penir household. Plenty of goings on and shopping and wrapping, and cards are on their way. One thing I never have enough of is tags! So I put together some simple but festive tags for you today using the new Deco Star Frame. 

DSC_0013

I gathered all my supplies, especially some glitter paper and gold foil paper. I picked the Pinpoint Main Street Tags set and found it was the perfect size for my Deco Frame.

DSC_0023

I stuck to jewel tones on black glitter paper, but you could use anything glittery, also adding a second tag with an embossed sentiment in gold. If you keep scrolling down, you'll see I didn't waste a cut! I used most every die cut in different color combos.

DSC_0015_wm

3 tags with left over frames in blue, red & green. This time dressed up with jewels and bells!

DSC_0016

One last tag with the white glitter frame on a bright pink glitter card stock. 

DSC_0017_wm

And a last wish for all of you, Merry Christmas from me, and Poppystamps!

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here again today with a reminder to enter in the Merry & Bright December challenge! We are looking for projects that make the holidays your favorite time of year. For me, it is the "Joy" of the season so I made a CAS Joy Christmas card. Hope it inspires you to give it a try.

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier 1

I used the Seed Snowflake Joy Craft Die for the main focal point on my card.

I then used the Seed Snowflake Outline Die as an accent behind the letters.  The Tidings Of Joy Clear Stamp set works perfectly with Seed Snowflake Joy Die to create the sentiment for my card.

The rules are simple and you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!! For all the details click HERE!  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

See you next time!
