Geranium Gatefold & Challenge Reminder
by Birgit Norton


Good morning Poppystamps friends!  Birgit here with you today sharing a card to remind you of the current challenge that's going on right now, themed "Bloom Where You're Planted".

I enjoyed bringing out some older dies that are still available in the store, hoping to inspire you to pull out those older supplies and use them.  

For my card, I brought out Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set and Picket Tall Curve Borders. 

I cut the flowers out of Blush 6x6 Solid Core cardstock and the leaves out of Greenery 6x6 Solid Core cardstock.  I added colored details and depth using copic markers.   I added sugared glitter to the outside edge of the flower petals and added Fairy Jewels to the centers of each of the flowers.


On each of the gatefold flaps, I added a piece of cardstock from the Greenery 6x6 Solid Core cardstock and cut the Picket Tall Curve Borders out of the same color, adding them to both flaps.  This gives the look of a garden trellis in the background.  I added a white cardstock oval, gluing it to the left flap and adhered the geraniums, covering the oval.  


I so enjoyed bringing out the tried and true dies that never go out of style for this challenge.  These geraniums are gorgeous in any color and they're so easy to assemble.   I hope I've inspired you today with this lovely geranium card.

Want to play along? 


The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up HERE at the Challenge blog. 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.

Booyah 3


Hello! I cannot help myself but when September comes, all I want to do is make Halloween and Christmas projects!  Well, today I have a ghost spinner card using the Oval Fold Frame.   I started my card by die cutting two black card panels with the Oval Fold Frame. This will allow me to sandwich the ghost on clear thread between the two panels. With one of the panels, trim off where the embossed line is for the fold on the oval panel.  I also trimmed a little more, about 1/8 of an inch so that when I sandwich the two panels the other panel with the fold will still fold nicely onto an A2 black card panel. I used some very tacky adhesive strips to suspend my clear thread between the two die cut panels.  The ghost will be adhered so that it is centered in the oval space.

To decorate the panel, I used the Picket Tall Curve Border die and die cut from orange cardstock and adhered to the front panel with liquid glue.  For the inside, I trimmed some purple cardstock and then inked with Distress Ink Wilted Violet ink and then splattered it with Distress Metallic spray.   Once dry, I adhered to the back panel.   For my sentiment, I used the Poetic Lowercase Alphabet and die cut out the word BOOYAH! and layered this onto some orange and black cardstock that was die cut with the Scalloped Stitch Frames.   I adhered this to the front of the panel with foam tape.

I die cut the ghost from several layers of cardstock both white and white glitter paper from the Glitzy Glitter pad.  So that the ghost matched on both sides, I flipped my paper over so that one ghost was die cut so that the background was the front of the glitter paper.   I then used foam tape to adhere the ghosts together and sandwich the clear thread in between the foam and ghosts.   Spin the ghost several times and then close up your card.  Once it is opened, the ghost will spin and shake around!   Check out this video to see the ghost spin!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Elegant Whittle Cats
By Teresa


Hi Friends! Glad to be on the Blog today sharing my elegant Whittle Cats card.

I knew the minute I saw the Oval Fold Frame that I had to create something fun with this die.


I always start a project by coming up with a color scheme I like and go from there. I cut the Whittle Napping Cat and the Whittle Purring Cat from a dark gray and added black shading by ink blending and and pen details to their faces.


For the Oval Fold Frame, I cut that from blush pink and the Picket Tall Curve Border from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 Pack. On the inside, I added a white A2 size panel, cutting the 4 1/4 side down to 4 1/8 so that the card could fold correctly. 

I used the cut out from the Oval Fold Frame and the extra oval Die that comes with the set, cut from white and ink blend some color onto this die cut.  I also added another oval behind with the same Vintage Pastel MirrorPad and the Basic Oval Set. This really made a nice frame when you open up the card!


The Sentiment is from the Modest Greetings 2 Foil & Cut set, hot foiled with gold.


Thanks for popping by! Until next time, I hope you have a great day doing something you love.
