Hot Foil Birthday
by Tiffany Pryce


Happy Saturday, Poppy peeps! Have you shopped the new release yet? It's so cute! There are great staples for spring and summer and even a brand new line of hot foil stamps - woohoo! Today, I'm sharing a clean and colorful, birthday card using goodies from the new release.

First, I created the card base and background. I trimmed a panel of cream, woodgrain cardstock down to 5 x 3.75 inches. I backed it with several layers of scrap cardstock to add dimension and added it to an A2 card base. Next, I die cut the Perfect Posies Bouquet die twice - once from orange cardstock from the Sunny Orange paper pad and once from coral cardstock from the Berry Red paper pad. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue. To the flower centers, I added a gold jewel from the Christmas Fairy Jewels pack.


Next, I worked on the butterfly. The Small Stained Glass Butterfly and Background die comes with two pieces - a solid butterfly background and the delicate, stained glass wings. I die cut the background from 2 layers of white and 1 layer of pink cardstock from the Berry Red paper pad. For the wings, I die cut gold cardstock from the Vintage Pastel Mirror paper pad. I adhered the wings only in the middle so I could lift the wings a bit. For the butterfly body, I die cut it from the same coral color as I did the Perfect Posies. I adhered the butterfly with liquid glue to the card front.


Beneath the butterfly, I added a sentiment from the Modest Greetings 1 foil and cut die set. I foiled the sentiment with matte gold glimmer foil. The matte gold is one of my favorite glimmer foils. I added foam tape behind the sentiment to ensure that it was level across the panel.


Hope you liked this clean and simple birthday card! Stay tuned to the blog to see even more amazing ideas with Poppystamps products. Have a great day!

Cabin Snowglobe
by Sue McRae


Hello everyone, Sue here with a card using the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Die Set. This is such a wonderful set for creating charming Christmas, winter, or anytime of the year cards. It’s perfect for making masculine cards, which I know can be difficult to create.


I went with a frosty look in blues, pinks and purples for my design. For the background I inked up the circle die cut with Distress Inks and sprayed it heavily with Perfect Pearls for lots of shimmer.


To create a swirly, windy sky I embossed this piece with the Waves 3D Embossing Folder. Love how it turned out!


I die cut all my different scene pieces with a variety of Memory Box coloured and glitter cardstock.

For the snowglobe base I used the White Woodgrain Paper and ink blended some gray on top.


You can really play around with all the layers and add foam adhesive to create depth and dimension. I added foam dots between the house and yellow window background for some nice shadows.


The great thing about this popup card, is that it fits into an A2 envelope, even with all the layers and added dimension.


I stamped a simple sentiment on the inside of the card so that there’s lots of room for adding a personal message.


Just think how different this card would look for spring with grass instead of snow, some added flowers and blooming trees and a bright sky inked in yellow and orange.

Thanks for visiting with me on the blog today!

Festive Farmhouse Christmas
by Janet Katz

JOY card with sig
I'm a big fan of the farmhouse look, the rustic charm characterized by simple materials and a good amount of white space. Visit any craft store, furniture store, or my living room and you'll see how popular it is. At Christmas, this style means buffalo plaid, wicker or wire baskets, unvarnished wood, bottle brush trees, and more plaid. With some black and red check paper in my stash, I started working on a farmhouse Christmas card. I used the Double Joy Die set and cut the background from the check paper. The Poppystamps Woodgrain Kraft Paper was the perfect choice to create the outline. It *really* looks like wood. 

JOY card with sig
I wanted to set this off from the background but still use a woodgrain background, so I reached for the same paper but in the Cream color (also comes in white). Then I wanted to add something below the O to give it some texture and softness. I used the holly leaves and berries from the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Die Set. I finished off the card by layering a scallop-edged kraft paper, red paper and yep, more plaid beneath that. I was very happy with how it turned out and it was easy to make. 

The Cabin Snowglobe die set is the gift that keeps on giving. When I was cutting out the red berries, I had to cut red leaves since they are all part of one die. When I looked at the red leaves, they suddenly resembled a certain red holiday flower. I'm getting an idea!
