Sunny Hugs
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am sending bright and sunny hugs with one of our brand new, beautiful Deco Plates, Arched Deco Plate! The tiny curved arches remind me of little sun rises at the start of each new day. Take a look!


I chose fresh, bright colors to create a detailed paper piecing card with a warm message, HUGS, cut from the Marzipan Alphabet.


I started by cutting the Arched Deco Plate in crisp white, the adhered it to a fresh blue background and mounted it to my card base. Then I cut the Arched Deco Plate again in yellow, and carefully added each piece in it's correct location with craft scissors and a bit of glue.


Once the yellow pieces were in place, I cut the Arched Deco Plate in vibrant green, and added the little pieces once again. There are so many natural elements these shapes remind me of, like the sun, trees, or a tiny ocean scene. Maybe these shapes remind you of soft, pleasing symmetrical pattern, or an Egyptian motif popular during the Art Deco period. Either way, this panel makes a beautiful background to a detailed card.


Once all the paper pieces were in place, I cut the word HUGS from the Marzipan Alphabet in bright pink and grey, and added them to the card. A few blooms from the Fern and Daisy Pop-Up Easel Set and this card is ready to slide into an envelope for a favorite sentimental friend.


Thanks so much for joining us today and taking a look! There's always something new and pretty happening here at Poppystamps every day! Come back for more!







Hogs and Kisses
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

Have you got into this awesome Barn Craze yet? We are celebrating Summer with the brand new Country Barn Pop-Up Easel Set! I grew up in Wisconsin, the land of LOTS of barns, and cows too! I made my barn in the famous traditional red and white colors popular in my part of the country. Instead of a cow, I added this adorable pink pig, sending someone special HOGS and KISSES!


Cutting out the red barn and white trimmings was the easy part. I mounted the barn on a grassy green base, and then I added the Wavy Long Picket Fence. I wanted the fence to stand up in front of the barn when it was opened, so I carefully bent each little picket at the bottom crossbar. I adhered the bottom of the fence onto the bottom of the card base, then added the cute little pig in front of the fence.


I added the Whittle Sunshine and a Whittle Chicken to the front of the barn. Adorable, right?


I stamped the sentiment HOGS and KISSES from the Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments clear stamp set onto the Colwell Label, and adhered it to the card base along with a few tiny chicken eggs too. Now we've got the barnyard stirring!



This Country Barn Pop-Up Easel Set turned out great, and that pop=up little fence gives this card a fun new dimension! How will you be inspired today? Show us your sweet Country Barn creations!


Thanks so much for joining us today!






Flowers and Butterflies
by Marybeth Lopez



Hello , Marybeth Lopez  here with you today, sharing how I made this embossed card . I am also here to remind you of the  Poppystamps challenge: Flowers and Butterflies.

I hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother's Day.



After adding a layer of vellum to the stamped butterflies I also added a bit of glitter to the edges . The vellum layer made them look even a bit more elegant.


Above is a quick snapshot of the Products I used.


The Embossing folder is amazing and so very detailed that it is hard to capture in a photo.

The Hugs die is layered three times , then I added a tiny bit of glitter to it as well.



You have plenty of time to play along in the challenge , just make sure you use at least one Poppystamps product on your card.  

Take care and I hope you have a wonderful week.

Challenge Reminder: Lattice Rainbow
by Kim Singdahlsen

4.07.21 PS Rainbows BL

This month's challenge is Sending Rainbows.

Apr 2021

My rainbow is a rainbow of color in all the little squares of the Lattice Plate.  It was fun and easy to do and created a fabulous background for the bold "Hugs"!

I used a variety of the new cardstock from Memory Box.  I didn't want to waste any. I figured I would use more than three squares of each color so I cut a small strip then just cut a small portion of the die.

I cut the Lattice Plate in white then adhered it to my card base.  Then I just enjoyed piecing together my rainbow.  

The Luscious Script Hugs seemed bold enough to hold its own with all of the color.  After I cut and placed that, I wanted a way to highlight it.  I used Three Intricate Cut Butterflies in the same rainbow colors.  I wanted them to pop, so I actually ended up trading out the plain cardstock color beneath them for some coordinating polka dots.  It's subtle, but I like that there's a bit of a difference under the butterflies.

This was so much fun to create.  I've used the Lattice Plate in a previous card on this blog. On that card, I placed patterned paper behind it and it was a lovely look.  This card is quite different - the Lattice Plate is a good basic die that can be used in multiple ways.

I hope to see you playing along with the Sending Rainbows challenge.  As you can see, an actual rainbow isn't required - I've just used color for my rainbow!
