Hello Poppystamps friends, Marybeth Lopez here today sharing a card using the new Geometric Deco Plate from Poppystamps.

I used an older panel made with alcohol inks that I saves. Cut the plate twice and layered it over the panel.

With all the tiny details I used Craft Bond spray and it went on in no time.

I know I covered up the center , for some reason I needed to tone it down with the inside of the panel, kinda nice to have that option with the Deco Plate.

I used the Poppystamps , Art Deco Birthday Greetings set for the center pael.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting .

I used an ink pad on my glass mat and added water to the ink then used a watercolor brush to paint the main body of the barn from Poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel Set craft die.

I added two layers of trim for depth, and couldn't resist using the adorable : Poppystamps Little Chickens. I also used the Stormy Blue paper pack from memory box . I wanted to make my card red white and blue as we just celebrated the Fourth of July , here in America. I love the look of the blue paper, kinda reminds me of a summer stormy sky.

Ok, now your turn , lets see what you all come up with, I thought for sure I would be watercoloring flowers but happy I went with the adorable detailed barn.

Berry Red Happy Birthday
by Marybeth Lopez

Hi there! Marybeth Lopez  here today, channeling my inner Jeanne :)  I loved using the memory box Berry Red paper pad collection all on one card. In case you didn't know this paper is 110 lb. cardstock . I always seem to use the pink pad. 

 When I layered the " Poppystamps Happy Birthday Poe Script" die I was going to use only foil and then decided I wanted white with only a bit of the gold showing. I Love how that turned out.... I just adhered the white die-cut  and slid it down and to the left  . What do you think? I love the look of just a bit of gold showing.

4FE6D0A0-F886-4425-B566-F766428C8133_1_201_a

I cut all my paper 1/2 in. strips, I then used my tape runner and added tape to the card then started placing my strips down on a slant. After all the strips were adhered I trimmed my panel down.  I am sure glue is used most but this tape lets me pick up and reposition just a bit more.

I am pretty happy with the fun color strips background. I wanted the background  to stand out and not conflict with the beautiful blooms, all linked below.

The blooms are called Wild Rose Stem from memory box.

Sweet Whittle Birthday
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello, there and happy June to you all!  Marybeth Lopez  here today sharing a sweet :)  Whittle Poppystamps, birthday card that will go to one of my sweet granddaughters this weekend. It was another fun and simple one to make .

EFF842B8-AF43-468D-B679-F58D9390263B_1_201_a

I cut all my die cuts using white cardstock and then used blending brushes for all the color. I cut more than I deeded and then narrowed it down to the final three.

5DE5EC4E-5B1B-477B-9E46-DC7F66E78685_1_201_a

I used a post it note to cover up the sticks on the popsicle, then did the same when coloring the  Whittle Popsicle top.

1FAA8CCA-B5F5-4454-85EF-61D7A61742F7_1_201_a

I used this gorgeous memory box Madras Coral  patterned paper ( linked below) to line my envelope. I think it makes all the colors on the card pop and I love the shimmery gold lines.

Above is a picture of the dies I had ready to go and then decided less is more. I didn't use this layout or the early yummy Whittle pie ( I did save it) on my card below is the layout I ended up with.

D48B28CF-52A9-4BC3-8982-3FDAE00B3669_1_201_a

Simple but sweet using Poppystamps Whittle Ice Cream Cone, Whittle Popsicle and Whittle Donut. The stamp is from Birch Press Design called : You Are Awesome .

Hello there, Marybeth Lopez  here today with the real Challenge Reminder (ha ha), mixup in date last week. If you wanted details about my challenge card you can go HERE

Hope you have time play in  the Poppystamps Challenge , this months theme is nature with flowers and butterflies , you can go HERE for Details

For todays card I did use butterflies as you can see on the pretty patterned paper and the two butterflies on my card, each with added glitter..... because I just love adding glitter to a card anytime to a card, cant help myself :)

D579D3A3-6A10-47AE-B91D-2283F69138C9_1_201_a

Above is how I added color to my Whittle Flamingo Poppystamps die cuts. I like to lightly blend the ink . The Flamingo die comes with extra legs so you can pose them as you like.

I layered each flamingo twice . The main panel is flat, not raised so layering the flamingos gives a bit more dimension.

I thought this sweet sentiment went well with this Mr and Mrs Whittle Flamingo , the stamp is from memory box Open Studio called: All the Happiness.

Above is a picture of the products I used ( all linked below) The Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set has some pretty butterflies but you can use any you have in your stash.

I used the Whittle Wave Background  die as a frame only this time. You can see in the photo above that it has cute waves in the center , I used patterned paper instead this time and shared how it can be used as a frame.
