A Deco Diamonds Thank You Card
by Janet Katz

Blue gold squares PS

Simple geometric shapes like circles, squares, triangles and hexagons can be a card maker's best friend. This is why I was thrilled to get my hands on the new Poppystamps' Deco Diamond Stencil Set. It has 3 stencils, each featuring smaller and smaller squares. There are so many possibilities with how to use this versatile set.
For this card I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Broken China. I used a blending brush to apply the ink on white cardstock, first with the largest squares and Tumbled Glass. Next, I used the second largest squares and Broken China Distress Ink. At this point, I *should* have gone over my panel with an antistatic powder, but I neglected to. I wanted a punch of gold, so using the smallest squares stencil, I spread Ranger's Translucent Texture Paste over it, removed the stencil and applied gold embossing powder over the top. My powder stuck in a few too many places due to static and I spent several minutes with a small, dry paintbrush, dusting off the excess powder as best I could. Then I heat embossed to get that great, slightly raised gold square all over.

I cut my panel to 3.75" x  5" so I could mat it twice, first onto turquoise blue cardstock, then onto a white cardbase.
Next, I used Poppystamps' Thank You Moonlight Script die to cut the shadow from white cardstock and the words from gold cardstock in Memory Box's Rainbow Reflections 6x6 Mirror Pad.
I wanted to add some foliage, so I used the leaves in the Leafy Vine Corner die set. I used a flower shaping tool to make them curl up some and adhered them to the card, once I had determined my placement. Finally, I attached the words with foam tape.

This was a fun card and I know I will use these same elements again and again.

Thank You by Marybeth Lopez


Hello again. Marybeth Lopez  here with you, two days in a row. I used the same colors again today. I love soft pinks.

I used Poppystamps Craft Stencil for my( frame) background ,  Open Studio Watercolor Paper ,Poppystamps Thank You Moonlight Script and Layered Tulips.


I just grabbed one of the stencils softly ink blended it then grabbed another one and went over it with the same color. I was not following any order.


As you can see above it was a random use of the stencils and worked beautifully for the frame edge that showed up behind the main panel.


This picture captures the gorgeous texture of the water color paper. The warm off-white is nice and muted as well.

The thank you is layered and ink blended as well as the flower and leaves. All white paper again today, colored by ink blending with brushes.


 Hope I have inspired you to enjoy some time in your craft room and or do a little shopping for some Poppystamps dies. 

As you can see I used the Tulip die to look more like an ordinary bloom and not so much as a tulip. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week .






Thank You Deco Diamonds

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.

A Thank You from the Heart
by Nancy Penir

Have you seen the new Foil Plates in the Poppystamps store? Hi and welcome to my post today. I'm smitten with the Leaf and Tendril Foil Craft Plate. Keep reading and you'll see why.

DSC_0259_wmI made a thank you card with a panel done with the foil plate, using a silvery foil onto Memory Box's pink cardstock, (By the way, if you haven't checked out the 110 lb. cardstock color packs, when you're done reading this post, run right over to MB and shop!)


I paired my bright and blingy card base with glitter and mirror cardstock die cuts. And added a vellum heart behind the sentiment.


I love how the foil plays with any color it's near!


I added a contrasting teal shimmer cardstock to the leaves and paper pieced my framed heart.

While  my foil machine was out, I played with foiling on other colors as well. Wanted you to see how beautiful they all turned out. Love having them on hand for future projects!

Take care my friends. Hope you enjoyed today's post, and hope you'll check out all the foil plates in the Poppystamps shop!

Old World Deer
by Rachel Duong


Hello, it's Rachel! Let's welcome Fall, the season of crisp air, leaves turning color and days getting shorter with an "Old World" card! What is "Old World"?! It's a style that is worn, slightly tattered, yet familiar and nostalgic. Finishings are distressed and faded. I love this look!
To create this card I am using the Poppystamps "Pondering Layered Deer" and the "Leafy Branch Oval". The dies are from the Fall and Christmas 2022 releases.  I hope you like it!


Here are the steps to create this card. 
1. Die cut the Poppystamps "Pondering Layered Deer" out of kraft cardstock. Die cut the scarf in burgundy.
2. Lightly blend brown ink on the deer to create shadow and interest.
3. Adhere the pieces together. 

4. Using a fine tipped black marker, dot in the eye.
5. Using a snow marker, add highlights and spots on the deer. It does not need to be exact or realistic. 

6. Die cut the Poppystamps "Leafy Branch Oval" in brown and yellow. Use small scraps for green, lime, yellow, orange and burgundy. They will be used for the leaves. 
7. Take the yellow die cut and trim off the branches of the oval frame. Distress the frame unevenly with brown ink.
8. Take the brown die cut and paint it in a wash of darker brown.
9. Trim green, lime, yellow, orange and burgundy leaves off the die cuts. Glue leaves onto the brown branches of the die cut. 

10. Using a neutral cardfront, blend brown and green distress oxide inks mimicking an oval shape. Spritz water on each color and dry between applications for this effect.
11. Glue the finished "Leafy Branch Oval" on the card front.
12. Blend distress oxides and inks around the corners and edges. Trim down the cardfront to slightly smaller than an A2 size. 
13. Glue the deer on the cardfront. Add a few leaves for embellishments and balance in the lower right corner. 
14. Tie 1 mm burlap twine on the fold to complete the card.

Supplies I used. The dies are linked to Poppystamps below.


I hope my card finds you well. I love the heartwarming charm of this adorable deer. It has a timeless feel and I can see this deer in the forest, munching on leaves. 
Both dies are great for so many occasions and events throughout the year. Have a wonderful day!

You Are the Sweetest
by Nancy Penir


Hello and welcome! Nancy here, and I have one last summer card for you, before pumpkin season takes over. 


I have geraniums in my garden, do you? Our extreme dry heat takes them out in late summer, so I couldn't find one plant blooming, to post a picture of their beauty for you. Their thick lush leaves grow together blanketing the soil, and the flowers grow high on sturdy stems. I wanted to capture that for my card.


All pieces were cut from white cardstock and sponge inked. That way I could assemble the blooms from deeply inked to pale.

The sentiment is black embossed onto clear cardstock. Be sure to use heat resistant clear cardstock so the heat doesn't warp it.

Layered and dimensional, I will certainly handmake a custom envelope. 

Are your cards taking a turn toward autumn? Sometimes saying goodby to summers bright colors is bittersweet. At least my cards are still blooming! Have a wonderful week!
