Challenge Reminder
by Nancy Penir


Hello! Hope your summer's off to a great start. Are you playing along with Poppystamps' Challenge? Here's a reminder that this month's challenge is Summer Solstice.


I love playing with bright colors, so I reached for my magicals. They start off as a powder, and when you add water, POW! They explode with color.


Did I mention they're (the Magicals) bright, sparkly, and summery? Just perfect for a Whittle Lizard and Cactus. 

Hope you play along, we love seeing your take on the theme.The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar

Just A Note!

Happy Friday Crafty Friends! 

Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the long holiday weekend here in the US. My thank you card stash was getting low, so I decided to replinish my stash and make a few note cards. This note card die from Poppystamps is a staple die for making quick and easy Thank you cards or general A2 size note cards.

The supplies I used are the Stitched Envelope die, the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die, which is my go to die for all of my cards, and lastly the Greeting Basics Stamp set. I used a small heart punch from my stash to add the teeny tiny white heart to the envelope flap.

I die cut the stitched envelopes from a rainbow of scrap papers from my stash. Then I die cut the stitched rectangle frame from some white cardstock. I assembled each envelope with some liquid glue then popped them up on some foam tape for added dimension. The sentiment was stamped with Versfine Onyx Black ink. The entire card panel came together by  reassembleing the white frame onto a white A2 size card base with the envelopes attached.

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

Brick House Easel Card
by Sue McRae


Happy Monday crafters! I’m joining you today with a charming little scene on an easel card.


There’s lots of die cutting on this card but it’s easy to put together. The hardest part was choosing the colour scheme.


I started by die cutting my easel piece which is from the new Porch Pop Up Easel Set. The die set is meant for a front porch scene but I used only the two dies that create the card base and added other dies from my stash to make my own scene. This makes your easel card design possibilities, endless!


For the background of the card front I used some happy yellow patterned paper and added a grass border to the bottom of the panel.


I took the Proper Brick House and die cut it several times from different shades of teal card stock and assembled the house and I added a red door for a pop of bold colour.


The trees were die cut 3 times from white card stock and once from green card stock from the new Frosted Glitter Pad. I layered these all together to create thicker trees.


I die cut some small flowers from the Floral Cluster in yellow and red card stock and added them below the windows and used the Whittle Cloud as smoke from the chimney.


I think this card could be used for many occasions and would also be great for a guy so I left the sentiment on the inside simple with Just A Note stamped on a Colwell Label. This label die cut is what helps to keep the card in the easel position but it will mail flat in an A2 envelope. No extra postage needed!


Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great week!
