Happy Easter Card
by Candice Crawford


Happy Wednesday crafty friends! Hope you are doing well and staying safe. 

Easter is this Sunday and there is still time to make your handmade Easter cards. If you a bit of inspiration, the new Woven Basket Pop Up Easel set is perfect for making your 2021 Easter cards. 

This set comes with the basket shaped cardbase, a layering piece for the basket along with the basket, grass, and bow. You can make the card as a Pop-up easel card or simply layer the basket image onto an A2 size card like I did here. 


This card came together quickly and easily.

First, I die cut the basket image from some cream colored cardstock and and inked the raised portions of the image with my Gathered Twigs distress oxide ink. 

Next, I die cut the layering piece of the basket from some white cardstock and inked the center of the panel with some Tumbled Glass distress ink. Then I die cut the grass image from some green cardstock. 

I adhered the grass image to detailed basket image. then adhered both pieces to the white basket layer panel. 


Next I die cut the easter eggs from the new Farm Fresh Eggs die from white cardstock and colored the eggs with my Kitch Flamingo, Cracked Pistachio and Mustard Seed distress ink. I also die cut the easter bunny for the basket from some chocolate brown cardstock using the Spring Bunnies die. Lastly I die cut the bow and sentiment from some gold colored cardstock. 


I adhered the grass, eggs, bunny and bow to the basket using some liquid adhesive. Then I attached the completed basket to the white basket layering piece. I popped up the entire basket image onto a pink A2 size cardbase using some 3M foam adhesive. Lastly I added the Happy Easter die cut sentiment to the card.  This card is so adorable and I was amazed at how quickly it came together. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time...Happy Crafting!

Easter Basket Slimline Card
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello , hope you are all having some fun crafty time. Marybeth Lopez  here today for Poppystamps with a slimline card using a few more dies than I normally do. Trying not to make it too busy for me, only used two colors , three if you count the neutral basket .


The basket is two layers so I could have a smooth underside and tuck in some of the grass and bunnies. I lightly added some glitter to the basket ( mostly because I got a glue smudge on it) Below you can see the color pads I used for the basket and the grass.   I staggered three layers of the grass, then gave the grass a bit of a trim to shorten the blades of grass. I ink blended the white embossed panel with a light pink , using oxide inks and blending brushes.


I used memory box colors, Earth Neutral and Lush Green, both linked below. I so love having all the colors of the beautiful new paper pads. 


Long time ago I needed the long plates ( big shot) for a die I had (never needed again until now) and boy or boy am I glad I kept them and or have them. You don't have to have them for slimline cards but it its nice.

I used the die : Leafy Vines Slim Plate to Emboss not cut , all you need to do is use the sandwich for embossing so that it won't cut. The black is a thin embossing pad. I then adhered the : Slim Leafy die to the pink panel.


I really like the way this turned out even with my little mistake because I always love some added glitter.


I hope I have inspired you to have some crafty time and maybe even to do some shopping at the Poppystamps store , so many new spring stamps and dies.

We've been blessed with some beautiful sunny weather and now we will be getting some much needed rain.

Hope you have a wonderful week. God bless you all.






Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir


Hi and welcome! If you love bright, happy and spring color, you're in for a treat today! Nancy here and I've been playing with Poppystamps' newest release. Oh my, Spring Bliss!


Have you created a slimline card yet? I'll share a secret with you, this is my first. Couldn't resist Poppy's new Leafy Vines Slim Plate. It packs a wow on a slim line card! Here's a quick and easy 'how to' for you.


Here's a photo of measurements that will get you the base for a slim line card. 8" x 8 3/4", fold down the middle, and the beautiful Leafy Vines Slim Plate fits perfectly on the card's front, with a nice edged frame too.


Then the fun begins! Pale Eastery pastel? Monotone single color? Or Bright no holds barred wake up color! Just had to celebrate the season's change with a bold punch of color for this card!


My card's a slimline shaker with the new Farm Fresh Eggs cut from Glitter Card Stock moving around inside. I threw in some spring sequins too.


Pretty much an afternoon of decorating bliss on the front of a card! The slim lines fit easily in a business size envelope, or you can find colors online on Amazon and many  hobby stores too.


Hope you're inspired to try a slimline. Be sure to check out the Poppystamps' store for all the newest stamps and dies. And a big shoutout to our sister stores, Memory Box and Birch Press for their latest. New paper packs that will thrill! Hugs, all!

Appliqué With Craft Dies and a Birthday Card
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello and happy March to you all!  Marybeth Lopez  here today , sharing a birthday card and an appliqué pot holder/ mug rug ,using Poppystamps craft die.

I often use a few I my craft dies on quilting projects , so I thought I would share a few with you today using the amazing Poppystamps die called Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set.


You can lose some of the detail when cutting material,  ( but main shape still very nice) most of the larger dies cut cloth very nicely . I just used my machine stitch to appliqué onto the material then went ahead and layered my small project. 


As you can see above, the detail in this die is amazing. Nine craft dies included in the set .


I also used the Farm Fresh Eggs die on one of the mug rugs/ hot pad. A mug rug is just something to set your coffee mug on while holding on your lap. 


For the birthday card , I used the new Poppystamps, spring line dies called Double Diamond Lattice Plate ( cuts like butter) . First cut turned out perfectly.

I used one layer of the memory box Spring Plaid patterned paper and adhered it to my base . 



I used one of the many new paper packs( so many beautiful colors) from memory box for the sentiment on my card. I layered my Happy Birthday sentiment twice then adhered to my front Lattice panel.




So many beautiful new Spring products at Poppystamps , happy shopping . God bless you all.

Unicorn Valentine
by Nancy Penir


Can you believe it's almost Valentines? One of my favorite holidays, sending love to those special people in my life is a joy!


Many of those 'special people' in my life are young, and Poppystamps has some new Whittles just right to bring a smile!


Whittle Unicorn comes with separate mane and horn allowing some creativity, not to mention depth. It also comes with a double heart, which when cut is the heart plus outline! 


I cut the hearts die from several glitter papers, and arranged them around the Whittle Circle Frame. You can see one around the unicorn's horn too!.


Lots of framing and foam lifts, really zooms in on the main attraction... that wreath of unicorn joy! 

Happy Valentines, and Happy crafting!
