Mother's Day
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_0969

Hi there friends of Poppystamps! Marybeth here today, with this square Mother's Day card made for one of my daughters , she has three girls . They also have a family of ducks raised in their back yard /pool for the last few years. I thought this sweet little Poppystamps Whittle Duck Die would make a sweet little note card for her gift.

IMG_0912

I stamped the center of the Whittle Wood  Frame with Picnic Plaid both from Poppystamps 

IMG_0974

The frame is cut three times and glued together , I also cut and glued the mother duck three times.  I stamped the sentiment from Picnic Plaid .

IMG_0979

The Picnic Plaid has quite a few sentiments to choose from that go well with: Thank You

IMG_0981

The inside of the card finishes the front sentiment with a thank you! ( I know a bit backwards but it works for me)

It was about how the front of the card would look :)

This is a simple card with layered detail and subtle colors. I hope all the mothers have a wonderful Mother's Day! I am blessed to still have my mother with me. God bless all mother's everywhere.

Donut You Forget
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0006

I have a card for you that's going to a young boy today. Sometimes it can be hard to create something for the young ones in our lives. Hopefully this will help give you some ideas.

DSC_0001

I picked a Poppystamp die that I could cut several colors from, and saved the little donut holes. They looked so festive!

DSC_0004_wm

The finished card is a combination of color and elements my little guy loves (who doesn't love donuts?)

DSC_0008

Here's a sideview of the popups. 

DSC_0009

I had a few leftover donuts, so I added them to the inside. 

Hope you got some ideas for you next child card.  And hope your week is extra crafty!

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Super Sponsor
By Jeanne Jachna

Spring-Coffee-Four
There's nothing like a cuppa for a quick pick me up in the morning or the middle of the day!  There's something comforting about a steaming mug to warm you inside and help you collect your thoughts and take on the rest of the day.

Coffee lovers and crafters UNITE!  The Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop begins today and Poppystamps is a SUPER Sponsor!  That means we're offering a prize for the event.   You can find lots of coffee theme'd projects and  link up your own designs so you'll be entered to win! 
Spring-Coffee-One
I'm playing along with this colorful creation!   I started with a Zig Zag border background in yellow, lime and teal.   The die cuts three strips at a time so this went pretty quick.  I adhered the cuts on their reverse side with tape to form a panel.  I trimmed the panel to fit the cover of my card and adhered it to the base.  You can also adhere the strips directly to your base if you like.  
Spring-Coffee-Three
I've used this Morning Cup die for several Coffee Lover Events.  I love that I can change the look of it by adding different elements.   I added some flowers this time for the Spring event.
Spring-Coffee-Two
I topped the zig zag panel with a Finial Wreath die cut adorned with more florals and leaves from the  Blooming Border die.   The flowers are topped with half pearls for some extra bling.    
Spring-Coffee
I hope you find some time to play along with Amy Tsuruta's Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  There are lots of great prizes up for grabs that you won't want to miss!

Someone Special!
by Robin Tharaldson

April 30 Full WITH

Thanks for stopping by Poppystamps blog today! My card features pretty Spring flowers for a special someone!! The products I used are listed at the end of my post with links to the Poppystamps shop for your convenience! 

April 30 CU1 WITH

I really like the pretty, bright Spring flowers! This card just says "happy" to me, lol!!!

April 30 CU2 WITH

By using the Double Stitch Circle Frames I was able to create a circle on my card panel; another use for frame dies!!

April 30 CU3 WITH

To stamp my images I used a slightly different technique, one that was not so easy until stamp positioners became available. My video shows how to stamp with more accuracy onto pre cut die-cuts!!

Cheerful Hello Card
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here today with a cheerful hello card using the new Poppystamps Butterfly Wings Clear Stamp Set.  I love how this stamp is a background stamp, so many things can be done with background stamps. 

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I used it to create a resist for the background on my card front. The "to my favorite bestie" is one of the sentiment stamps that comes with the Butterfly Wings Stamp Set. 
The "hello" is from the Poppystamps Luscious Script Die.

To All My Peeps
By Jeanne Jachna

Peeps-Five
Wow this month has been going so fast!  With the weather so fickle here in the midwest - snow one day, rain the next, I can't decide if it's Spring or Winter.  Nope!  Yes!  It's SPRING!  And we have been waiting a long time for it! 
Peeps-Two-WM
I was so worried that the bulb flowers coming up wouldn't stand a chance but they are resilient like us.  A little back tracking of cold weather isn't going to stand in our way right?  
Peeps-Four
I stamped the rows of tulips and little birds from Easter Chicks (in my part of the world I'm calling them Robins because they're back from their Winter migration) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.  The images are easy to die cut with the coordinating window style dies that you place over the images and then die cut. 
Peeps-Three
I stamped the sentiment along  the bottom of a panel that I inked with distress ink (Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, and Squeezed Lemonade).  The tulips are adhered flat to the card panel, and the little birds are adhered with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension. 
Peeps
Wishing you a beautiful spring day!

Blooming Garden Challenge Reminder
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6096-wm

Hello Friends!

We are so glad you could stop by today, and take a look at this fun card I created for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! 

IMG_6089-wm

I have a little kitty who LOVES to help me with everything I do, especially with my tiny garden that I have out on our apartment lanai. My kitty and my small space garden inspired me to create this card for our April Challenge. These "Whittle" animals that all came out this year are some of my very favorites, and today's Whittle Cat is sweetly checking out the Folk Watering Can filled with tiny flowers from the Spring Pot Shelves.

IMG_6084-wm

To create this card, I started with some watercolor paper and sponged on Distress Oxide inks in shades of blues and greens, gently giving them a soft blend to look like an outdoor horizon. Then I splattered the paper with water and a paintbrush, which gives the inks these beautiful layers of color. Once the paper was completely dry, I then cut out the Pointed Rectangle Frame and the other cuts, and estimated where I wanted the horizon line to appear, then cut it out and adhered it to my white frame.

IMG_6086-wm

I adhered that to my card base, then added all my die cuts, arranging the flowers and leaves from the Spring Pot Shelves into the Folk Watering Can, and adding the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies and a few sequins. It's the perfect design for my small space inspired Blooming Garden card!

Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you will create for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! Just use at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, then link up your creation to our  current challenge page on the right! What are you growing in your garden?

Thanks so much for joining us today! We'll see you in the garden!

Hello
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_0886

Hello from this just hatched happy chick! I made this simple little interactive card using : Chick and Egg, and Luscious Script Hello dies from Poppystamps spring line. The little chick is on a mini wobbler that makes him move when you pull down or to the side of it. The chick is in movement it the photo above.

IMG_0646

I had some leftover alcohol ink blended papers from another project. You can go to Jennifer McGuire to learn how to create your own. 

IMG_0648

I cut the top layer of the hello in white and adhered to the colorful background . Since I was going to add the white chick and egg to this background  I lightly blended some blue ink so they would show up better.

IMG_0653

I added this mini wobbler to the back of the chick so it would move when touched. It kinda makes him look even happier to be just hatched saying " HELLO"! I cute the shell out twice so I would have a top and bottom.

IMG_0656

I decided to lightly add some yellow on the chick. When you use a brush it's a much softer look.

 The panel is watercolor cardstock to even a bit more movement . I hope you all have a Happy Easter and wonderful Spring!

Thank you for the visit today...happy shopping!
