Birthday Wishes

Welcome and Happy Spring! We're so glad you're here! (Poppy friends and Spring!)

I have a birthday card to share with you, and it has some foiling and stenciling, die cuts and layering.


My birthday card started with a coral color cardstock,  and was foiled with Poppystamps new Deco Diamond Plate. Gorgeous!


I used the smallest diamond stencil to add Abandoned Coral and cut the panel down to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". 


I let the die cut sentiment be the star of the card. The base is actually gold foil, with the script cut from light pink.


You can see a bit of the gold glimmer in this photo.

So many great foil plates in the Poppystamps store right now, definitely a reason to enjoy the foiling craze!

Have a crafty week, friends, and hope you are enjoying some lovely spring. weather!

Birthday Wishes Deco Diamonds
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_5 (2)Hi Crafty Friends,
I am back with my new FAVORITE stencil, the Poppy Stamps Deco Diamond Stencil. I love layering stencils. Earlier this month I made an all pink card with this stencil and today I decided to make a monochromatic purple birthday card with a different shade of purple for each  layer of the stencil.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite shade of purple?
A: Me? Bright, like Wilted Violet Distress Oxide

Final_4 (2)The Pointy Lattice Plate die fits perfectly with this stencil and makes such a cool textured pattern! I added the beautiful Birthday Wishes Script Die with Fairy Gems for the dots of the "i"s.

Butterflies With Love
by Rachel Duong


Hi crafty friends! It's Rachel here hoping to bring a little spring to you. My card today is full of lovely butterflies in shades of teal. I am using the Poppystamps "Pointy Lattice Plate" and the "Deco Diamond Stencil Set" from the latest incredible release. These pieces coordinate together but can also be used alone. Hot foil and glitter lend its hand to the soft, yet energetic movement this card projects.

Steps to create this card.
1. Die cut the Poppystamps "Pointy Lattice Plate" in white card stock.
2. Using the "Deco Diamond Stencil Set" blend Distress Oxide Ink Shabby Shutters over the stencil panel with the largest squares onto a white A2 size card front. Vary the intensity of the inks.
3. Match up the next panel with the medium size squares to the card front. Tape will keep it from moving. Blend Cracked Pistachio Oxide Ink over the stencil.
4. This time match up the panel with the smallest squares and blend Mermaid Lagoon Oxide Ink over it. 


5. Hot foil and then die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment in silver from the Poppystamps "Birthday Wishes Poe Script" foil and cut die set. 
6. Hot foil and die cut the With Love sentiment in rainbow foil from the Poppystamps "Modest Greetings 2" foil and cut die set.
7. Die cut the "Teardrop Butterflies" two times using the Memory Box "Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad" in pale blue and white.
8. Blend Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink unevenly over an area of white cardstock large enough to cover the "Teardrop Butterflies" die, then die cut.
9. Adhere the lattice frame onto the stenciled panel and onto a white card base. 


10. Arrange the sentiments and the butterflies on the card front. 
11. Adhere the pieces down. Leave the wings unglued on the tips. Turn up the edges for a fun effect.
12. Use Stickles Crystal glitter glue on the darkest butterfly.
12. Adhere Open Studio "Fairy Drops" in choice places for the finishing touch!

Another close-up -- I love the rainbow hot foil and the beautiful glitter. The fairy drops are gorgeous too. 


This color palette of teals and lime are one of my favorite combinations.  I can't wait to try many color groups and flowers in place of butterflies. There are so many possibilities!


May you have a dreamy and relaxing day today. Please be sure to let me know if you have any questions. I love to talk about cardmaking.

Until next post, wishing you butterflies with love!

Thank You Deco Diamonds
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_1 (2)Hi Crafty Friends,
I fell in love with the Poppy Stamps Deco Diamond Stencil set the minute I saw it. I love layering stencils. I decided to make a monochromatic Thank You card with a different shade of pink for each  layer of the stencil.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you like layering stencils?

Final (2)The Pointy Lattice Plate die fits perfectly in the "white" of the stencil and makes the diamonds pop! I framed my card with Scalloped Stitched Frames Die and added the beautiful Thank You Script Die with touches of Fairy Gems to highlight the Moonlight Script.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you send Valentine Cards out?
A: Me? Yes, about 30 of them

Final_4 (4)I created the background by stenciling the hearts with pink glitter paste on the Berry Red 6x6 paper pack and splattering it with Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry and Copic White Opaque Paints. I mounted it on the the pink glitter paper from the Glitzy Glitter pad.

Avocado Love
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_2Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you making Valentine's Day Cards? I am! These Whittle Avocados make a perfect pair.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you have a Valentine? What is his/her name?
A: Me? Yes! My Valentine is my puppy Maddie

I started my card by creating the background with Poppy Stamps Criss Cross Heart Stencil. I used Distress Oxide Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover for the different color hearts then splattered it with glitter and Copic White Paint.

IMG_8806I used the inside of the Scalloped Stitch Frames Die to create my red border for the top of my shaker. I added foam tape all around it and mounted it on my stenciled base with the avocado clay pieces inside. You can see them all at the bottom before shaking.

Final_1I finished my card by mounting the Vintage Scalloped Heart die in the center with the sentiment You Guac My World.
