Stained Glass Butterfly Card
by Candice Crawford


Hey crafty friends, Candice here, back on the blog again today sharing another card from the Poppystamps new release. 

Today’s card features the new small and large Stained Glass Butterfly Background dies, along with the new You are Amazing Poe Script greeting Foil and cut die set. 

FD794364-61C3-4ADB-9090-802EFC1F89BFTo make the card I first sponged on some Distress ink in Salvaged Patina, Squeezed Lemonade and Worn Lipstick, then added some gold splatters with some gold paint.

The butterflies for the card were die cut from white, gold and vellum cardstock and adhered together with liquid glue. 
The butterflies were popped up with foam tape and then adhered to the card. My favorite part of the card is the sentiment that features the new foil and cut die set. It was so easy to foil the sentiment with gold foil and die cut it out with the coordinating die. 


I hope you have enjoyed today’s card and found inspiration. Until next time…happy

Fun with Foiling
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello, Marybeth Lopez  here with you today. Can you believe May is almost over! It flew by for me. 

Poppystamps has so many fun new products as you have seen some of the design team members already use. The DT has created so many gorgeous cards.

I did lost of foiling today with the amazing sentiments sets from Poppystamps : Foil and Cut Die Sets...... 


After using the hot foil machine , I used the companion outline die to cut it out . So very easy . I made lots so I have them ready to go when needed. I think you are going to love these.


The Congratulations is from the Modest Greetings 1. I also cut and foiled many of those too.


Since I have both sets I was able to cut two at a time. I have many on hand ready to go.


This photo above shows how beautifully they shine and glimmer. I am so excited about the new foil dies from Poppystamps. For my leaves I used oxide distressed inks and blended with a sponge dauber. The leaves are from Poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set.




This is a graduation card for a guy , did want any flowers , so I just used the leaves. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Happy Crafting and Peace be with you all.








Foil and Cut Die Sets from Poppystamps
by Nancy Penir


Hello, Poppystamps friends! Are you a fan of foiling? Well you're going to love today's post. I want to introduce one of Poppystamps' newest: Foil and Cut Die sets.

The Foil and Cut sets let you foil the image onto cardstock, and then die them perfectly.


Birthday Wishes set has 3 foil and Cut sentiments. 


Nothing else captures the professional look of foiling, and Poppystamps Poe Script is both elegant and decorative.

I've paired my foiled die cut with the new Brilliant Geraniums. One of my favorite spring flowers.


I have geraniums in all colors and shapes in my garden. The new die set allows you to add petals and pop them up with layering... so many creative possibilities!


First die cut in white cardstock, I sponge inked the leaves and petals, and then added some depth with colored pencils. I bent up the top layers of petals, and then added colored dewdrops in the centers.


If you enjoy foiling, see this and other new Foil and Cut Die Sets in the Poppystamps store. Be warned, you won't want to stop with one set!


Have a wonderful, crafty weekend!

Hello crafty friends, Candice, here back on the blog with another card to share. Today's project is a bright and cheery card using the new Freestyle hugs, Penelope Pinpoint Frame and Potpourri Flower die sets. 


This card is heavy on the die cutting, but still very simple to make. I die cut the frame and flowers from white cardstock.  I colored the flowers using my Distress Oxide inks and an ink blending tool. I sprayed each flower with a bit of water to give it a more two toned, watercolor look. 


Next I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock for the word hugs; and black cardstock for the shadow and adhered the two with some liquid glue.  Then I arranged all of the flowers in a diagnal across the card and used some press-n-seal to adhered my floral arrangement to my card front panel that conains the Penelope Pinpoint Frame underneath.  


Lastly I adhered the sentiment to the card with some foam tape and added clear jewels to the centers of the flowers.  This card makes me want to sit and relax on a beach with nice cold drink in hand. 


I hope you liked today's card project and found inspiration.  Until next time....Happy Crafting!

Hello Sunshine
by Candice Crawford


Hello crafty friends, hope you are all enjoying your week. 

Today's card share is magical theme card  using our popular Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit and the new Colorful Life stamps set.  I just love the unicorn and rainbow dies in this set. These two dies combined with the coordinating sentiments from the Colorful Life stamps make awesome magical themed cards. 


Although the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit comes with its own sentiment stamp, I think the new Colorful Life stamp set has good sentiments to coordinate with kit.


This card comes together very easily. I simply die cut all of the elements of the unicorn and rainbow from white cardstock.  Then with my copic markers I colored in the unicorn. Next, I die cut the wings and the horn of the unicorn from some gold cardstock scraps and adhered it to the unicorn with liquid glue for added interest.

I used my distress oxide inks in peacock feathers, mustard seed, twisted citron, spun sugar, wild honey and picked raspberry to color each of the rays on the rainbow.  To color the rays I used the direct to paper method and swiped each ink pad onto the white cardstock. 


Lastly I die cut the stars from some yellow cardstock scraps and stamped the sentiment in versafine onxy black ink.  The card front panel is popped up on foam tape for added dimension and interest. 

I hope you liked today's card project and found inspiration. I know many of the design team members have been making unicorn cards lately, so hopefully this design provides you with another way to use the kit. 

Until next time....Happy Crafting!

With some markers in light pink, purple, yellow and blue, I colored the main and tail of the unicorn in a rainbow color scheme.
