Cascade of Posies
by Nancy Penir


Hi! I'm so glad you joined me today. I have a card made with a new Poppy die called, Pierced Finnegan Circle.


A friend of mine recently had shoulder surgery, and wanted her to know she's on my heart and mind. Here's a few of

what I used to create this card.


After running the die through the die cutting machine, I inked a bit of color to hi light the pierced design.


Blooming Border provided the posies and leaves, which I cut from vellum.


Lots of sequin flower centers, and a sweet 'feel better', and my card's ready to send!

Hope you got some inspiration today. And hope you have a 'craftilicous' day!

Row Your Boat
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to be sharing this card I created with the brand new Seaside Dock and the Wooden Rowboat! WhenI first saw this adorable combination, I thought about all of the great metaphors a little boat and a dock could create. I really played around with these two images a lot too, in order to get it just right. What messages do YOU see with this tiny boat? Is it off to a new adventure, or sailing in to a safe shore? Is it a reminder to a friend that you are always near, or an encouragement to someone whose journey has just begun, or that our dreams are still just out of reach? Maybe it's just a little boat on a summer's day!


The Seaside Dock and the Wooden Rowboat were cut with basic cardstock, and then placed inside the Pointed Rectangle Frame. I added two tiny waves from the Gentle Wave Collage and a few sparkling sequins and voila!


Thanks so much for joining us today!

Phone Booth Gift Wrapping Ideas
by Olga

Are you participating to this month's challenge? To enter it you just have to create any framed project and use at least one Poppystamps product.

04-18 copy

The project I have created is a phone booth themed gift wrapping. I have added some stamping to kraft paper to make the wrapping match the phone booth tag.

For the tag itself I have decided to introduce a number of different textures - heat embossed background, some cork for the frame as well as some  crackle glaze on a booth itself. As a finishing touch I have added some bronze gears.

Framed 1

There are lots of phone booth souvenirs out there - I have created this particular wrapping to package a phonebooth piggy bank. This type of packaging will also do great for cell phones.

Framed 2

The whole creative process is revealed in a video tutorial below. Enjoy watching!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget to join in the challenge for a chance to win $20 certificate to Poppystamps online store!

Rose and Pearls
by Olga

The project I am sharing today is an almost one layer and nearly one color card. Although the design is quite simple I have jazzed it up with some fun techniques. 

The large circle border layer I used is actually meant to work with another border die that serves as a bottom layer for it. But instead I decided to attach some pearls to the inside of the card so that each circle becomes a little window for a pearl.  

I have also used a punch tool to create more tiny circle windows - I scattered them around the card front and attached more pearls behind them.

A New Arrival
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today! Today I am sharing a card I created that features this pair of sweet Little Rabbits! This could be a great Easter card idea, but it was actually created to welcome a brand new baby boy into our extended family! He's not here yet, but everyone is awaiting his arrival soon!


This card was so easy to make! I started by cutting out the Little Rabbits in teal, then cut the squares from the Double Stitch Square Frames in shades of blue and white. Can you imagine how cute this would look in pink or yellow too? Everything from the DoubleStitch Square Frames fits together so perfectly too!


These Little Rabbits would look great with our April challenge too, Spring Fever! A new arrival is on the way!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Seaside Birthday Greetings
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there! Marybeth here today with this detailed: Seaside Dock and Wooden Rowboat dies from Poppystamps !


I cut my dies out of colored cardstock then lightly shaded them with soft brushes to highlight the detail even more. The brushes help me keep it light, even and smoother than a sponge.

Each one( boat and dock) is layered twice then adhered with foam tape. The background was made by  shading and  kinda guessing where the water and land would be.


 The brushes wash out very easily and dry fast. I also used watercolor cardstock for the base of my card.



 I added a little piece of twine to the dock and boat, for a little more 3d look of the card.

 Thanks so much for the visit and congratulations to all the Blog Blitz winners!

Beautiful Love..
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, today I`m sharing a card using these beautiful papers by Prima "Love Story"  you can purchase from Birch Press   ...They are stunning..and you can make a quick card.


I choose to use a few Dies as I wanted to see the paper on my card design...I`ll share how I created a shadow with my "Love Stitch Circle Frame" from Poppystamp Dies.


Start by cutting the Love frame in white and brown card.


Cut away the word love and adhere as shown.


I have offset the scallops on the outer circle.


Like this on the reverse.


Next place 3d foam tape as shown.


Adhere to the top left of card base.. Pretty boarder die from Poppystamps "Pierced Borders" I have used  on the top and bottom of my card strip, they do match up for a continued pattern. 

Hope you like this simple card..Thank you for stopping by Pam x
