Sending Love
by Rachel Duong


Hi everyone! It's Rachel here with a fancy Valentine. I am so excited about the Poppystamps "Nordic Flourish Background" die. It has so many intricate details and can be used for many occasions throughout the year. Do you have your Valentines ready to send?! Here's hoping you might want to try this one out.


To create this card I die cut the "Nordic Flourish Background" in white cardstock and adhered it to an A2 white card base. Next I used red glitter paper from the Memory Box shimmering cardstock "Glitzy Glitter Pad" and cut the second largest heart from the "Scallop Pinpoint Hearts" die. I die cut it two more times in white. Next I die cut the Poppystamps "Nordic Flourishes" using the Memory Box "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad" red foil paper and the Memory Box Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad in pearlized gold.  Then using the Memory Box "Lush Green Collection" paper pad in two shades, I die cut leaves from the "Nordic Fancy Blossoms" die. I stamped and cut the sentiment in black ink from the Poppystamps clear stamp and die set called "Sentimental Banners".


Now for the arranging and gluing part of the card! I chose a few random pieces to glue on the existing white background. I adhered the heart frame to the background and arranged the leaves. Next I taped the leaves in place, glued the solid white heart, second white frame, and red heart on top.


Finally, the gold accent flower grounds the sentiment!


The pearlescent gold and the shiny red embellishments complement the gorgeous heart! I just love this card. It has so much character and movement when it interacts with a light source!

May your Valentine's Day be full of love and happiness. Take care and see you in a little while with another card. Please take a look at the amazing Poppystamp collection full of endless creativity, it is spectacular!

Challenge Reminder PSC #113 Heart Eyes
by Tricia Barber


Hello!  February is the month of love!  I love to make Valentine's Day cards and the Scallop Pinpoint Hearts and the Nordic Flourish Background are perfect for a lacey valentine!  I love this backgound die and have used it many times.  The die cuts beautifully, I do use a metal shim in my Big Shot to die cut.   I love paring it with vellum and have used it today on top of the vellum shadow die but have used it under vellum!   I die cut the Nordic Flouish background with white cardstock and the shadow die with light pink vellum.  I added this to the top of a pink cardstock panel.

I die cut the Scallop Pinpoint Hearts from silver and gold foil cardstock from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  I added foam adhesive to the back to layer this onto the panel.    I added a label where I created my own sentiment with the Harrison Label Set and the Poetic Lowercase alphabet dies.   


This card was made for this month's Poppy Challenge themed Heart Eyes!   Have you played along yet?  I finished off the card by adding some pink Fairy Jewels using the pastel jewels.   I hope you will play along with our challenge this month!   Happy Valentine's Day!

Love is in the air as we begin the countdown to Valentine's Day! There's no better way to celebrate than with hearts and flowers. Well, maybe some chocolate too!

The Nordic Crown Flower and delicate Scallop Pinpoint Hearts were my jumping off point today. I used deep rich red, petal pink and plaid with shades of wine, pink and gold to create my blooms. I chose a lovely gold for my stem and leaves to compliment the gold lines from plaid paper.

The flowers were cut three times, once from each paper so I could mix and match them to create the regal blooms. I adore the tiny dots on all of the leaves! A simple foiled sentiment was tucked into the arrangement.

A lovely vintage jade cardstock foiled with the Criss Cross Heart Plate was the perfect complimenting color for this design. I do love the look of this color combination and I hope you do too!

Whimsical Love: Crafting Valentine's Magic
by Jyoti Adhikari


Hello crafty friends, Jyoti here today. Let's dive into the enchanting world of Valentine's Day as we embark on a crafting journey featuring the delightful Nordic Birds Bunch Craft Die and Scallop Pinpoint Hearts Craft Die from Poppystamps' January Release. In this trio of love-infused cards, we'll explore the creative process behind each whimsical creation, where vibrant colors, charming details, and heartfelt sentiments come together to celebrate the season of love.

Colorful Bird Duos

Unveil the magic of color as we assemble a delightful array of bird duos. Choosing a warm and cozy Valentine's palette, each pair is carefully crafted with a unique combination, ensuring no two birds look the same. With 12 sets in hand, we'll set the stage for a trio of heartwarming cards that will steal the spotlight.


Patterned Paper Symphony

Discover the artistry in patterned papers as we select three Valentine-themed designs. With strips measuring 2.75 inches wide, each paper is adorned with a scalloped heart frame, creating a harmonious symphony of colors. The intricate details of these patterned papers set the stage for the next step in our crafting odyssey.


Lacy Borders Elegance

Elevate the romance with delicate details as we cut out lacy borders using Poppystamps' elegant die set. These intricate white borders add a touch of sophistication, framing our Valentine creations with a hint of ethereal charm. Six lacy borders, two for each card, weave elegance into our heartfelt designs.


Sentimental Flourish

Celebrate the language of love with sentiments that speak volumes. Stamping and embossing "Happy Valentine's Day" on craft cardstock, we create two sentiments for our cards. Additionally, a special touch is added with the sentiment "Happy Galentine's Day," ensuring our cards spread joy to all kinds of cherished relationships.

As we wrap up this crafting odyssey, our trio of Valentine's Day cards emerges as a celebration of love, creativity, and the joy of sharing heartfelt sentiments. The whimsical birds, vibrant colors, and intricate details make each card a unique expression of affection. Whether you're crafting for a sweetheart, a friend, or yourself, these charming creations are sure to bring smiles and warmth to the season. Craft on, and may your Valentine's Day be as delightful as these handmade treasures.

Love U
by Rachel Duong

Hi! It's Rachel here sharing a Valentine card using the beautiful Poppystamps "Nordic Fancy Blossoms" and the "Scallop Pinpoint Hearts".  Soft pinks, sage and mustards may seem like an unlikely palette but it's fun to try something new and change up the traditional colors. This card creation is a little bit delicate and a little bit vintage with a whole lot of flair!


To create this card, I began with "Nordic Fancy Blossoms" and chose 3 shades of yellows from the Memory Box "Sunny Orange Collection" cardstock pack. Next I cut the stems from the Memory Box "Lush Green" collection. I used the green to diecut letters L,V, E and U from the "Marzipan Alphabet" set. I die cut the "Scallop Pinpoint Hearts" and the L, V and E letters with the Memory Box "Berry Red" and the "Vibrant Violet" collections paper pack.


As I combined the petals, I decided I wanted to add some glitter to give it some extra pizazz. I grabbed the Memory Box "Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad" shimmering cardstock and die cut the middle layers of the blossoms. 


I also die cut the border of the smaller heart and the "U" in the same pink glitter cardstock.


I found the perfect patterned paper for the background from the  Memory Box "Poinsettia Garland" paper pad.  It's a Christmas release but there are many papers that can be used for other occasions.


I love the gold foil paired with the glitter, awesome!


Arranging the pieces together, finding just the right design, I adhered it to the floral background and then onto a pale pink cardstock base. 


I hope this card might have sparked some crafty ideas for you. Here's hoping you have lots of fun designing Valentine's Day cards. Poppystamps has so many gorgeous dies to create with, please check out their latest release of Nordic designs. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
