Hello and welcome to Poppy's newest dies and stamps and papers and washi... well you get the idea, it's Blog Blitz time, and it's called, 'Garden Variety'. Win, win for you. A chance to win, and to see all the new, together with lots of inspiration and ideas.

I'm showcasing 'Proper Brick House', a 3 piece die set, that allows you to be as detailed and creative as your paper crafting mind can take you! And the die set you could win. Take a look!

The possibilities for being creative with this die are mind bending! I decided to go all out and use those tiny bricks on my house.

I die cut the house 3 times, using 3 different colored card stock. Note: if you want most of the bricks to stay, add a sheet of printer paper behind your card stock. Also helps to have this handy dandy brush tool to quickly remove all those tiny bricks. One other note, I traced around the die, so I'd have a solid piece of a little bit darker pink to glue down my bricks. Same with the chimney.

If you love paper piecing with pattern, you're gonna love Memory Box's new paper packs!

I gave my Proper Brick House a bit more dimension by adding fussy cut windows and door. You don't have to do this step, but wow, does it make that sweet house pop!

No foam tape for my mini dwelling, just layer on layer, on layer!

Summer Beach
by Marybeth Lopez

6AB981E7-F2C4-43DF-A367-9FBCD7D58A4C

 Hello! Hope you will all be enjoying the sun and beaches soon . I decided to make a bit of a beach-y card today. Using Poppystamps : Whittle dies all linked below.

27CDBA9F-75F4-409B-899E-059471DE3F59

I made a small slit in the circle to slide the whale in for just a bit. I have two cut circles glued together for this card, wanted just a bit of layers but still very easy and flat to mail.

6B08D739-DAD3-44E3-A2E3-9BA8A504161D_1_201_a

After I die cut the little Whittle dies I used blender brushes to blend in my color with distressed oxide inks. One of my granddaughters had a beach panel she made while playing with the brushes so I decide to use what she already blended. I used the: Poppystamps Brilliant Rings ,  largest circle.

1F6E659B-E233-477A-BCD4-12F0A38F924C

I placed the die over the spot of panel that I used so you can see what it looked like . Little Bailey made such a beautiful beach panel..... I really hated to cut into it.

After I was done I added a few more splatters, my granddaughter already added a few to her beach panel.

The base panel is watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby called Masters Touch, many of you ask me.

I hope you are all able to get outside and hopefully things will soon be back to normal. ( as much as possible) I hope you have some time to craft. I've found it a great blessing to have this hobby even more now.

Hope you have a great weekend and Happy Mothers day to you in USA

Wishing You Brighter Days
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 4.30

Hello crafty friends, Candice here, sharing with you another design team project showcasing products from our Spring release.                                    Today's card is bright and cheerful with a playful Spring theme full of colorful umbrellas. 

April 30 Blog Post Supplies

To make this card, you will need the new Raining Frame Die set, along with the Whittle Cloud Border die and the Birch Press Designs Blooming Spring stamp set. You will also need card stock scraps in the colors blue, yellow, orange, green, light pink, white and fuchsia. 

Begin by die cutting the cloud borders from a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of white card stock. 

April 30th Blog Post 3

Next take your yellow, orange, green, light pink and fuchsia card stock and die cut the umbrella from the Raining Frame Die set with each color. No need to use your larger pieces of colored card stock; small scraps will work the best for to die cutting the tiny umbrellas.

April 30th Blog Post 4

Next, die cut the raining background from a piece of a piece of blue card stock. The Raining Frame die creates the perfect 4.0 x 5.25 inch background layer for the card. Assemble the card by first adhering the Raining background layer to a 4.25 x 5.5 inch white card base using adhesive of choice. I prefer liquid adhesive.

Next add your stitched cloud borders to both the top and bottom of the raining background layer. Then paper piece the light pink umbrella directly into the umbrella opening of the raining background layer with some liquid adhesive.

Now add the remaining umbrellas to the card with 3M foam tape arranging them in a staggering design around the light pink umbrella. April 30th Post 3.3
Finish the card by stamping the sentiment "wishing you brighter days" in VersaFine Black Onyx ink using a combination of sentiments from the Birch Press Blooming Spring stamp set.

April 30th Post Sentiment
Today's card is full of color and dimension and came together rather quickly. I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and will try this design out for yourself.

Thank you for joining me today. Until next time...stay safe and happy crafting!

Challenge Reminder - Puddle Jumping
by Jeanne Jachna

Brighter-Days-Two

Hi friends!  I hope you're taking advantage of the "shelter in place" and enjoying time with family.   Now more than ever we need to make each other smile!  I'm crafting as a sweet escape.. dreaming of a change of scenery and relieving some of the stress.
04-20 copy

I hope you find some time to play our monthly challenge.  This month's theme is Puddle Jumping.. we want you to dance in the rain and find the rainbow at the end of the storm.. maybe it's some spring flowers.. or a look ahead at better days.  You can also break out the watercolors and make some puddles of your own!

Brighter-Days-One

I made a fun scene!  I get a kick out of seeing the birds turn the smallest puddle into an excuse for a quick bath or playtime! 
Brighter-Days-Four
My card starts with a color block panel of ombre blue shades of card stock.  I cut strips 1 1/4" wide and adhered them on their reverse side.  Next I die cut the assembled panel with the Raining Frame die.   I die cut the Stitched Cloudline from white card stock and adhered it to the top of the card with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension.   I stamped a sentiment directly on the clouds.. its from the Birch Press Design Blooming Spring Stamp Set. 

Brighter-Days-Three
Little flowers fall from the rain clouds as the ducks make the most of it.   Some sparkling clear sequins add to the "rain" for a wet look.    I added some highlights to the duck wings with markers and some jewels to the flower centers. 
Brighter-Days
Wishing brighter days for us all.. in the mean time.. be safe and find your own way to relax!

by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, I know we are all having a tough time with this virus, seems like it will never end! I hope you are all well and staying safe. What would we do with our crafts to occupier our hands and minds. with that thought, I`m sharing a card ..I think the theme on this card could be either a Male or Female! do you agree.

This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together.  Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects.  The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base.  This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet.

I cut the foil with Poppystamps "Grand Watering Can" left the die in place and used a permanent marker to add black details .

 Die removed showing the black details.

The wheel of the "Country Garden Barrow" cut with the same foil and added some black pen to this.  The card base..I have shaded with a light blue ink..My "Hills and Valley Grass Border" cut in green card, Picket fence white card, brown for the Wheel barrow , this I have filled with Poppystamps "Dandelion Stem flowers cut up and  Garden Leaves..finished with Whittle Birds/clouds.. finishing touch I used Glossy accents to create water coming out of the can. Sentiment from Birch Press Designs. " Spring Time Fun".

I hope you'll give Rinea foil a try! It's really like no other foil I've ever used and really wonderful for 3D projects..
