I diecut the word die out three times then glued each layer on top of the other . After placing where I wanted I added a bit of shimmer pen to make it pop. Something you can see in person better.


I cut apart the Finial Circle die , glued on the front panel and also used shimmer pen .


I kept the first word die in place so it was easy to layer.

Wedding card
by Yoonsun Hur

Hello crafty friends, Yoonsun here!

Today I'm sharing with you my wedding card with the beautiful Daphne Butterfly die.
It's so easy to make! First, I laid the Tessatina stencil over the panel, put metallic gold paste on a palette knife, then spread it over the stencil. Next, I die cut the floral oval frame and butterfly from white card stock using Daphne Butterfly & Emory Oval Frame dies. Once dry the panel, I mounted all die cuts on the panel using dimensional foam tape. For the sentiment, I stamped the "Fabulous" from Hope and Thanks set on black card stock using embossing ink, white heat embossed, then cut it as a small banner. To finish it off, I embellished a few 4mm rose gold sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

My Little Wedding Card
by Mary McMillan


Before I tell you about this card, I want to give you a bit more news.  So, grab your coffee, tea or water and have a seat...this could turn out to be quite lengthy.....

I want to share some news that I think will be a good move for me, though I must say it has not come without MUCH thinking.  This will be my last post as a Design Team member.  Trust me, I have thought and thought about this and I have put off writing the post for as long as I can.  I've been a member of the team for the past few years and I have loved every minute.  How could I not?  That said, I know it's time for me to step back and let some new people have the wonderful experiences I've had.  

Every one of the Design Team members are wonderful women.  I've only met them through their blog posts and through emails, but I feel I know them and they are the best!  I will miss them, but I will be following each of them through this blog page and through their personal blog pages.  Thanks ladies for your inspiration!

I want to thank Jeanne for her guidance and her kind and calm manner.  Esp[ecially when I was attempting to learn how to link and post.  She proved you can teach an old dog new tricks!  I have no idea how she remained sane.  She encouraged me through some hard times as I blabbered on and on.  I'm sure she doesn't know how much she means to me and for that matter all of us.  Thank you Jeanne!

And Dave....the designer of the beautiful Poppystamps and Memory Box dies, stencils and stamps.  All I can say is the man is a genius!  But then, you all know that...right?  What you may not know, he is a most kind and generous man.  Yet another reason I thought long and hard about leaving the team.  He can be sure I'll be thinking of him whenever I use one of his creations.  

And of course everyone I've met in cyberspace.  Your comments, emails and likes here and on Facebook and Pinterest  have been such a joy to read.  I've visited your pages too and have been in awe of your creations.  Thank you for bringing inspiration and smiles to my world.  

I won't be totally gone from the blog world.  I'll be posting on my blog page, and you can bet I'll be playing along with as many challenges as I can.   Closing a chapter and looking forward to what the new pages will be....

And now....on to my card....  A friend is getting married next month and though I can't attend, I wanted to make a card for the couple.  The inspiration for this card was the new Distressed Benson Corner.  I cut it on a 6x6 piece of white linen card stock.  The rest just fell into place.  I printed the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed it.  Yes, you can....but be quick have everything ready because you don't have lots of time when it comes from the printer.  I used the Oval frame background and the Woodland Oval to surround the sentiment.  The Lorelai Outline and the Lorelai Leaf along with the Berry Sprig helped to finish off the front of my card.  I added silk flowers, stamen, a buckle and a bit of ribbon and the outside is complete.  

Here's what I did on the inside: 


I like to repeat elements from the outside and as you can see I did.  I did add the General Store Tag as my signature and to add a bit of dimension, I used an embossing folder.  This time I didn't heat emboss the sentiment.  I was worried it would dry before I had the chance to get powder on the entire piece.  

Now you know how I made this card.  It really is an easy one to make, though I think looks pretty elegant.  

See you again in "Blogville"  Hugs and so much love to each of you,

You are my safe haven

Hi there,

It's great pleasure to show you a card that I wanted to make for long time - with my personal idea for a sentence. The die with waves and ships ideally aligned with my thoughts. This is for some special person, someone who can give us a sense of security.



As you already know from my previous posts I really enjoy kraft paper. It seems that I will make few versions of this card.

Bigger ship is cut out from white paper, Sails are coloured with metalic paint. Small ship is made of two same cutouts in two diferent colors however the top is used for a sail only. The sentence at the bottom was printed on the kraft paper at the beginning.



The second card is exactly the same theme however sentece is in Polish. I changed colors but tried to keep the same clean&simple style.




Thanks for visiting Poppystamps blog! See you next time.

I Adore You


Welcome to the Poppystamps blog! Lezlye here with some elegant inspiration.

Elegant poppystamps

I love using gold paper to make an elegant card. I used the Bonney Stem die for my focal image andding texture with and embossing folder and different levels of intrest. I used some foam squares to mount the sentiment circle, where I used a rub on to convey my message.



This combination is perfect for an elegant card or for a 50th wedding Anniversary Card. I hope you enjoyed my post today. Be sure and visit www.poppystamps.com to see all of the other fabulous dies available!

Butterfly Wedding


Hi everyone, Sue here with a card I made for a wedding.

Sue McRae Butterfly Wedding C

I started off by using the Memory Box Cressida Stencil and some embossing paste to make the background for the butterflies.  Before the paste dried I sprinkled on some white glitter for a little sparkle.

Sue McRae - Oct Stencil

For the Theo and Whidbey butterflies I used Shimmer Sheetz (which is a mylar/plastic) in an iridescent colour. The sheet looks white but when you move it at around you can see yellow, green, purple and blue colours.  It is so pretty and I thought it would be perfect for the butterflies.

I tried to capture the rainbow of colours in a few photos.

Sue McRae Butterfly Wedding B

The butterflies are sitting on a bed of leaves die cut from vellum and they were adhered to the stenciled piece.

I added a bit of ribbon and attached everything to a pale blue card base.

celebrate by Sherry Eckblad


Hello PoppyStamps fans!

Sherry E here today sharing a card that I created for a wedding I went to for my cousin. I love white card bases and the white and gold were perfect for a wedding or anniversary.


For my card I cut the Big Bubble Background die and placed it on top of my A2 top fold card base using a white glue that dries clear.

Next up I cut out the Lyndon Butterfly using vellum and then cut out the Elsa Butterfly using some gold foil paper from my stash.

Next I used some gold stickers for the sentiment and added black crystals to the center of each butterfly.

Here is a side view of the card showing the butterflies in flight.


A really quick card and like I said perfect for a wedding or anniversary.

Thanks for stopping by and as always your comments are appreciated.

Best Wishes


and here is the inside....

Best-Wishes-InsideThe inspiration for this card was not a wedding.  The inspiration was the Memory Box Butterfly Vine stencil.  I wanted to make a card that was covered in glitter and when I pulled the stencil away the only place without glitter would be where the stencil was laying. Sadly, this photo doesn't show how pretty this is.  So, a picture is worth 1000 words, right?  The first stencil I did was on green cardstock with chrystal glitter.  This will show you what you see when you remove the stencil. 

Green-GlitterPretty isn't it?  Well, once I did this I couldn't decide what to do with it.  So I repeated the process on white and off white.  I used the off white on the outside of the wedding card.  I used the white on the inside of the card. 

Here's how I assembled the card.  I have a spool of ribbon that I think I've only used once.  I thought it might make a good background for the Massa Leaf Background and the Massa Leaf Outline and it would be easier to have the glue dots stick to the ribbon than directly to the glitter. The Background was cut on Vellum and the outline on Silver glitter cardstock.  I used glue dots to adhere the die cuts to the ribbon.  I then covered where the two dies met with a silk flower.  The sentiment was printed from my computer in gray, and I printed it on vellum using the best photo setting.  l immediately put clear embossing powder over the print and heat embossed it.  I find using the best photo setting keeps the ink wet enough to allow the embossing powder to stick.  A warning, you have to be quick!  The two hearts are embellishments that I purchased by the yard.  I think they really added a lot to this card. The techniques are the same on the inside.  I did make a piece for a personal note and the ribbon on the bottom is not glued to this piece, but rather a gift card could be tucked behind the ribbon. 

I'm happy with how things turned out.  This process was something I've wanted to try for awhile.  I'm glad it worked as well as it did.  Keep in mind, if you use a spray adhesive you'll be spending sometime cleaning your stencil.  If you don't mind glittery stencils, and I don't...you can save yourself some time.  To avoid the glue sticking, I'd suggest using a baste it glue or white water soluable glue sponged onto your paper. 

Have fun playing...Hugs from Northern California
