Love and Hearts
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there, Marybeth here today with a Pink Valentine card. I used Poppystamps Love die , the beautiful memory box 3D embossing folder, ( love this folder and I use it on many envelopes too! I also used some leftover hearts from one of my other cards , using the Banded Heart die and the tiny hearts are from the Heartscape Hill die.


Jumping ahead, this card shows how I added shimmer ink all over the hearts and panel. You might see I stamped the heart on the O and then decided not to add anything to it, I covered it up with another layer of heart.


I used all white paper for my card, all color comes from ink blending . I used the lighter pink for the large layer and the darker pink for the letters that go on top.



Above is my card base, I wanted it to match the color die cuts, so I ink blended the outer edges only ( center won't show). I then placed the embossed panel on top of this base.


I added a few drop of my favorite glue to adhere the top layer of the dies to the large outline.  I love these two soft pinks together! Don't you just love the LOVE outline die!!!


I simply embossed my panel using the 3D folder then added all the beautiful Poppystamps dies .See how the panel looks like colored cardstock! Just ink blended around the edges.


I think this will be a St. Valentine card but it could be used for many occasions. The card above this one shows more of how pretty the shimmer is. Thank you for the visit today , I hope you are enjoying a beautiful week .

God bless you .

Acetate Front Card
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, another card idea for you! using this beautiful Memory Box ..3D Embossing Folder " Heart Bouquet"


Love these new split frame dies, from New Collection from Poppystamp 2020 Valentine Release .. Floral Lace Heart Split Border.. 


I started with a card length 11" you can cut of, but not add on, so best to be sure! I placed the cutting center edge 2.1/2" in from the right hand side edge.


Reverse (wrong) side after running through my die cutting machine.


Right Side. at this stage you can just fold back ..or Cut away! 


I made sure my  cut lines were straight, using my score board.


Using Acetate 5" wide..width of my card front.. and strong double sided sticky tape..adhere acetate to the card front.


To Hide the tape lines and make it neat inside your card, Adhere your cut of heart card onto the acetate.. using more strong double sided sticky tape.


Embossed card panel..mat onto a lilac card a touch larger.


butterflies to decorate..there I used from Poppystamp "Beautiful butterflies Sidekick Frame" cut in lilac and cream card.


Front decoration..My old favorite from Poppystamps.."Dandelion Stem" with "Holiday Mistletoe" ..Love Flourish.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you`ll have a go at this card idea..Pam x

Banded Hearts
by Dana Kirby


Hi Friends! It is Dana here today and I am sharing a Valentine's Day card using a few dies from the latest release at Poppystamps. I loved so many things from this release, it was hard to decide what I wanted to share! How about you? What is your favorite? 


I started my card by die cutting the Banded Hearts Die from white cardstock. I then die cut it again from a variety of colors...just look at all of those colorful little hearts!


Next, I attached the Banded Hearts die to my A2 card base with a little liquid glue. I then inlaid all the hearts back into the die. This is a favorite technique of mine. I love the clean look that inlaying the negative pieces back into the die creates. 


To finish my card, I die cut the Love Flourish die from soft gray cardstock 3 times. I stacked them together for a little dimension and stability. Lastly, I attached my stacked sentiment to my card front. 


I hope you enjoyed my card today! I think this Banded Hearts die will make a beautiful wedding card...I can't wait to give it a try. Thanks for joining me today and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Textured Love
by Tina Wilstrup


Valentine's day is getting closer - do you have your card for your loved one ready?

I had this alcohol ink panel lying around. I didn't like it so it's just been sitting there. I first dry embossed it with the new Memory Box Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder. I then poured on some isopropyl alcohol to reactivate the colors. I kept moving the panel until it was all activated.

I let some of the ink drip off. It was too purple for me. And this is what I ended with. In hindsight I probably should have stopped now because this in my opinion shows the embossing better. 

But I didn't stop. I added new pink and purple alcohol inks, layering until I was happy with the look. Once dry I used a fine nail file over the embossed areas to remove the alcohol ink and make them stand out more. IMG_20200120_204713
I cut the panel to size and cut the Meadowblossom frame from white cardstock and layered over it. The heart shape in the embossed panel just fits inside the cut out heart on the meadowblossom frame, so pretty! I then cut the Love flourish from white cardstock and placed it inside the heart.
Happy crafting!

Valentine's Day Shaker Card
by Nadine Carlier

Valentines Day Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a Valentine's Day shaker card. Have you all started making your Valentine's Day cards yet?
For my card, I used the Poppystamps Grid Heart Frame cut from white cardstock and the Graceful Heart Frame cut once from white cardstock and once from pink vellum. To adhere the two Graceful Heart Frame layers together, I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite. I then adhered the two layers onto the Grid Heart Frame layer.


Instead of using acetate to make my shaker card I decided to use some pink vellum behind the Grid Heart Frame. I then added some 3D Foam Tape and for the inside of my shaker, I used the hearts that were cut out from the Grid Heart Frame and some pink seed beads.


Then I took the big heart that was cut from the Graceful Heart Frame and used one of the stamps from the Poppystamps Valentine's Fun Clear Stamp Set and stamped it with Delicata Pink Shimmer ink.

Valentine Tag Cards
by Nancy Penir


Valentine Poppy Greetings friends! I have a post full of Love today, using some of the latest Poppystamps release. Better have a cuppa with you, I just couldn't stop once I got started! Come take a look.


First, created my pattern Cardstock with Memory Box's new Drifting Hearts Stencil. A few with Distress Ink,

and a few with embossing paste.


To add color, I mixed a few drops of re-inker to my Mat Gel Medium. Also I lightly sprayed the back of the stencil with Pixie Spray. It's slightly sticky and holds the stencil in place and prevents the gel from spreading beyond the holes.


When the mat gel was dry, I cut out my tags. The Stitched Tunnel Tags has several sizes to choose from. I used the largest and also the 3rd largest. This is a photo of all the pieces I used on my 4 tags. 


The 3 layers of tags aren't glued together, just free to move. this one has some Valentine Washi on the bottom.


All tags have a 3rd piece of white card stock cut from the largest tag die, so I can write my message as I would

inside a card. 


The red tag on this one is stamped with one of the images from Valentine's Fun, one of Poppy's new stamp sets.


This tag was stamped with Poppy's Picnic Plaid. 


All have matching envelopes and glitter heart seals. To create the address label, I die cut smaller tag, turned it, and cut the bottom again for a mask, then stenciled on the hearts. Also added a bit of red shadow around the mask. I ran the die cut heart through my Xyron sticker maker, creating a seal for the back flap.

The tag/card measures 3 x 5 1/4" and fits perfectly in an A2 envelope.

Hope you're inspired to try a tag/card. It's the perfect Valentine for those special people in your life!

You are amazing
by Tina Wilstrup


Hi Poppy fans! For todays card I took inspiration in the current situation in Australia. It is absolutely heartbreaking and my heart goes out to everyone affected.

First I ink blended a panel to symbolize the blazing fire and set this aside to dry.

I then ink blended another panel to symbolize the burnt trees. After this panel dried I cut it with the Tall skyline Tree frame.

I cut out the Peek a boo koala and colored it. Then I cut off the frame.

I white heat embossed a sentiment on the cut frame and adhered it to the base panel. I adhered the koala as well. From a piece of white cardstock I cut the Samba heart border and measured where I wanted to score it. I then adhered the left side of the panel to the back of the base.

After adhering the half front, heart cut panel I used my stamping tool to measure where I wanted the sentiments. I didn't want them showing through the cut out hearts.

I added a couple of dots of black Nuvo drops as eyes and nose for the koala.

On the "inside" I adhered a couple of the cut out hearts from the border. Let's all pray for the survival of the unique and endemic animals of Australia.

Valentine Fun
by Dana Kirby


Good Morning Friends! It is Dana here again today sharing a set of Valentine's Day cards with you all. 


I started my card by using the Grid Heart Frame Die. I ran it through my die cutting machine two times, once with white cardstock and once with glittered cardstock.


I then attached my Grid Heart Frame to my A2 card base and inlaid all the little hearts back into the frame with liquid glue. 


Next, I cut a piece of white cardstock .75 inches wide and covered the third row of hearts. * I did this to allow my sentiment to stand out and not be distracted by the hearts showing through to my sentiment. I then used the Valentine's Fun stamp set and stamped my sentiment onto a piece of vellum. I wrapped this around my card panel and attached it to the back with a piece of tape. 


I just love how I was able to create two cards with two passes through my die cutting machine.


I am loving this die! I can't wait to create a rainbow of inlaid hearts in my next card. 

Thanks for joining me today. I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Sending Hugs and Kisses
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello and Happy Weekend to you all! Marybeth here today with a card sending Hugs and Kisses ( this will go to on of my granddaughters ) I used the new Poppystamps Floral Lace Heart Split Border craft die along with Poppystamps  Valentine's Fun clear stamp.


I blended ink just behind the heart, I kinda made a mask with the negative of this die , as you can see on the right side of the heart. When taken away, the only blended ink will be under the delicate heart, simply done with out making a mask. On the left side you don't have to worry because it will be covered up with the Floral Lace Heart Split Border


See above, when the negative of the die is taken away all you see is the original watercolored panel.


I love this 3D Embossing Folder from memory box called :Heart Bouquet EF1006 Heart Bouquet  . It's so easy to use ... place envelope in folder on top of one plate and run it through your die machine.


After I was almost done with my card I decided to add two more layers to the top of my card, for more dimension.


You cant really see in the photo but I also went over the lacy part of the heart and used a shimmer pen.


I layered two sentiments on top of each other to create this , I wanted it to fill up the lower portion of the panel.

Thanks for the visit to day and God bless you.
