A Flower Shoppe Thank You!
by Rachel Duong


Hi everyone! It's Rachel here to share a thank you card I made. I used the Poppystamps "Corner Shoppe Flower Pot Shelves" and "Flower and Leaf Sprinkles" die sets. I had the best time watercoloring these awesome plants and pots.


I die cut the shelves, plants and pots out of watercolor paper. Using distress inks in shades of green, teal, browns, reds and yellow, I loosely painted the pieces allowing colors to run into one another. What a delight!




Next I die cut the larget circle from the "Simple Rings" die in a nice peach cardstock Memory Box "Sunny Orange" cardstock pad. I die cut it again in a heavy vellum for the outline it automatically cuts with the circle. I die cut the "Snowglove Bases" set in kraft and I decided to used the smaller base. I blended brown distress ink over the base. 


Then I picked out a soft plaid paper for the background. It is so pretty and the dark lines are purple. I adhered the patterned paper to a white card base leaving a thin white border. I adhered the globe over the plaid paper.


I spent quite a bit of time arranging the plants and pots on the shelves. I moved the pots around and a tip is to take pictures of the final arrangement to look at for reference. It comes in handy when gluing the pieces down.

Then I glued the foil tab on the base and added coordinating purple Fairy Jewels.  Finally I wrapped burlap twind at the fold of the card. That's it and so many sentiments can go on this card!



This card was such a joy to create. I love gardening so working with paper plants just makes me happy! Yay! Please take a look at Poppystamps latest release. The dies are amazing and the pieces work together perfectly. 

Have a great day and see you very soon!

Corner Shop Wooden Cart
by Birgit Norton


Hello there Poppystamps friends, Birgit here with you today to share this sweet card featuring the Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles from the latest release.

IMG_6750To begin with, here is a list of dies I chose to use in today's project.  I cut all of the elements out of #80 white cardstock.

IMG_6752I colored all of the elements from the Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles using copic markers and then assembled them as shown here, using liquid glue.


For the background, I cut a piece of printed paper from the 6x6 Glimmering Gladiola paper stack using the Double Scalloped Stitched Frames and mounted it over a piece of coordinating cardstock from the 6x6 Lagoon Solid Core Cardstock pack.  I cut the Scalloped Pinpoint Rings out of white cardstock and blended on a bit of color using Tumbled Glass DOX ink.

IMG_6754Next, I glued the wooden cart and floral elements onto the Scalloped Pinpoint Rings circle.

IMG_6759I added the butterflies from Bunches of Butterflies using two layers, folding up the wings for added dimension.

IMG_6757To finish the card off, I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Banners and cut it using the coordinating straight banner die and glued it to the bottom of the card.

Blooms and Frames
by Marybeth Lopez



 Hello and Happy almost May. Marybeth Lopez  here with you today using Poppystamps new Scallop Rings and Nordic Bellflower dies. Love this round scalloped frame you can use in many ways. 


I used watercolor card stock for my card because I love the texture and firmness of it. The base of the card is regular card stock. I loved using the patterned paper from memory box 6X6 paper pad . Also loving the bits of shimmer from the gold.


The package of Greeting Tabs couldn't be easier to add to any card. One of my favorite new products this spring. I added two to this card , now I kinda wish I added a third. As you can see the bloom has three layers to each flower, but I only used two layers per flower. I felt the patterned paper added enough dimension to the flowers.  I kept it simple and didn't add the leaves either.  I let the blooms and the frame shine.

I hope you have a wonderful  week and find some time to craft . God Bless and may you find peace and joy in each day.




Happy Spring!
by Rachel Duong


Hi Everyone! It's spring and have I told you how much I love the weather?! Not only that, but the birds chirping is music to my ears. I am back with another Poppystamps card using the "Nordic Bird Bunch!"  Casually sitting on a fence, these birds are enjoying a peaceful morning. Leftover die cuts on hand, these birds are from my Challenge Reminder post. Let's get started...


The "Nordic Bird Bunch" birds were die cut in glitter, pearlescent, and shades of blue and orange(for the beaks) paper. The Memory box paper packs are listed below. 


I chose a patterned paper from the Memory Box "Anemone Grove" paper pack for the background. Next I ran an Open Studio embossing folder "Vintage Tray" through my die cutting machine with an aqua shade of blue cardstock. I cut the paper down to look like a fence and blended distress ink over the texture to enhance the lines. IMG_4860

I die cut a speech bubble from the Poppystamps "Word Balloons" set. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Poppystamps "Spring Banners" clear stamp set in black Versafine ink.

Putting the card together was fast. I glued the pattern paper on to a white card base and then the fence comes next in the lower half of the card. The birds are arranged with the sentiment and I glued it down when I was satisfied with placements. 


I added Fairy Jewels in light turquoise nest to the sentiment and under the birds. Bakers twine in aqua and white tied in a double bow complete the card. Yay!

IMG_4879That's it for now. I hope you get a chance to craft and create peaceful spring makes. There are so many Poppystamps dies to choose from. See you soon, take care!

Nordic Butterfly Trio
by Birgit Norton


Hello Poppy friends, Birgit here with you today with a different take on using the Nordic Butterfly Trio from the spring release.


I started by cutting the Nordic Butterfly Trio out of a piece of script paper that I found in my scrap bucket.


I then layered the butterflies, gluing them down through the center, bending the wings up to give them dimension.


Next, I embossed a piece of pale blue cardstock from the 6x6 Vintage Patel Mirror Pad using the Cheerful Floral Embossing Folder which you can find here

IMG_6241I mounted the embossed mirror panel to an A2 sized card and glued the butterflies onto the flowers.  The details on this 3D embossing folder is phenomenal on this mirror cardstock!


I then added these photo corners that were cut using a die from the Basic Junk Journal Set, to finish the card.
