Cherry Blossom Wreath
by Sue McRae


Welcome to another day of crafty goodness at Poppystamps! Sue here today with the amazing Cherry Blossom Stamp and Die Set.

The Cherry Blossom wreath is large, it measures just a smidge over 5.25" across and takes up a full card front. I really wanted this wreath to be the star of the card so I used the entire image.


I heat embossed the wreath in gold sparkle embossing powder on watercolour paper and used Zig Real Brush Markers in some vibrant shades for watercolouring. 


I die cut the wreath and adhered it to a 5.25" striped blue paper from the Springtime Bouquet Stripes & Dots Paper Pad with foam squares.

I searched through my stash for a small and simple sentiment to stamp in the centre of the wreath.


Next I took the Holiday Mistletoe die and die cut it several times from vellum to tuck around the outside and inside of the wreath. This adds texture and more depth to the card. Remember to look through your holiday dies as they can be adapted for card designs all year long.


As my final step I adhered the wreath panel to a 5.5" white square card base. 


Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Spring wreath
by Tina Wilstrup


Hey Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a pink, girly card using Memory Box Cherry Blossom Wreath.

I stamped with a watermark ink on watercolor paper, covered in white embossing powder and heat embossed it. I then taped it down, spritzed with water and added color with a color burst powder. I kept adding water and powder until I was happy with it. I tried to keep part of it very light, but for me the real magic of these powders are the darker spots, barely dissolved by water. Because that's where you get that magical, gorgeous shimmer. By the way, you'll notice I didn't stamp the whole wreath. That's because it's too big to fit onto an A2 sized card.Watermark1.587838364837E12

I did go in with my heat tool on low setting, because I have no patience. And once it was completely dry i spritzed a tiny bit of water onto a paper towel and wiped it over the panel to clean the embossed areas.

I cut out the large wreath and adhered it to my base. I used a stamp from that same set for the center of the wreath. I added a strip of lilac glitter cardstock to the bottom of the card. Next I cut the Wishes shade from a rose pink cardstock to back the Wishes word cut from pink glitter cardstock. 

That's it from me today, guys! I hope this current situation will soon get better so we can enjoy all the beautiful sights and colors of spring. Stay safe!

Gilded Wreath
by Sue McRae


Hello crafters! Today I have a quick and simple card using gilding flakes.

I love a good wreath die because it can be used for so many occasions throughout the year as well as for masculine or feminine cards. The new Adriana Wreath is wonderful with its mix of leaves and berries.


First I die cut the wreath from paper that has double sided adhesive on it and also die cut it from two different weights of vellum which will be layered underneath the gilded wreath.


Then I peeled off the liner and added my gold gilding flakes onto the sticky paper and burnished it on. I love the elegance of gilding flakes, it really is softer and less shiny than foil and adds a richness to your projects. I have about 6 different solid and mixed colours of the gilding flakes and use them throughout the year.


I took the Serene Mandala Embossing Folder (this is such a beauty) and embossed a piece of blue striped patterned paper from the Springtime Bouquet Stripes and Dots, this will be the background for the wreath.


Next was just to assemble the card with the vellum wreaths adhered to the embossed panel and the gilded wreath on top. I offset all the wreaths to add some more dimension to them.


I added a simple sentiment and finished off with a few smooth gems.


I hope you give gilding flakes a try, it adds a wonderful metallic touch to projects. 

Happy crafting!

Best Wishes
by Dana Kirby


Good Morning Friends! It is Dana here today and I am so excited to be participating in a fun collaboration with PoppyStamps and Rinea Paper Products. It has been so fun to partner with Rinea, the maker of beautiful metallics and foiled paper. Their products work beautiful with all of the PoppyStamps products and dies...a perfect match! I hope you get a chance to stop by their website and see all of their amazing products.


For my card today, I started by die cutting the beautiful Adriana Wreath from the white cardstock. Don't you just love all of the detail that this wreath has? It is so pretty!


Next, I used the small flowers from the Floral Cluster Die Set. I die cut them in a variety of papers from the Rinea Floral Variety Pack. Although this paper is foil, it cuts beautifully in a standard die cutting machine.


For my sentiment, I die cut the label from the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set. Next, I used the Colwell Label Set to die cut two more labels. These labels coordinate perfectly with the detailed labels included in the Adriana Pop Up Die Set. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the Birthday Blowout Stamp Set onto my label.


For my card design, I attached my wreath to a soft gray card panel. I then added all of my little flowers to the wreath with a liquid glue. Lastly, I layered my sentiment with some foam adhesive and attached it to the bottom of my card.


I think the foiled paper is the perfect touch, so pretty! Thanks again Rinea for all of the fun paper packs you sent me. I can't wait to create with them again. 


Thanks for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed my card. I also wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter! If you are like our family, your Easter will not be "typical" this year. We will be home with just our immediate family, doing our part to stay healthy. Take care my friends and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Spring Blog Blitz - Adriana Wreath
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello and Welcome All to our Spring Blog Blitz! We have got some fresh new products and beautiful designs from our talented design team all month long to help us chase away those winter blues! Today I am sharing my pretty spring wreath created with the brand new Adriana Wreath. Take a look!


The Adriana Wreath is an intricate one-piece die that packs a powerful punch! I started out by cutting the Wreath in a pretty lime green, then adhering it to my crisp white card base.


Then I selected my favorite spring pastel palette, and cut out a random pile of leaves, berries, and tiny blooms from the Garden Leaves and Berries, the Orchard Leaves, and the Floral Cluster die sets. I arranged them around my Wreath, then stared gluing. Soon I came up with a fresh spring look I love!


Then came my favorite part! I pulled out my brand new Fairy Sugar Glitter Glue from Memory Box Open Studio! I squirted tiny drops in the center of my tiny pink leaves in small drops of glittery goodness! Today I used Strawberry Ice, but you will want every color in your collection!


I added a few sparking sequins and voila! It looks like Paris in the Spring!
