Poppystamps and Birch Press Design Blog Hop

Poppy & Birch Press Blog Hop Aug 23

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Poppystamps and Birch Press Design Blog Hop! Today our designers are sharing their creations made with gorgeous Poppystamps and Birch Press Design products!


Today, I’m using the amazing die set from Birch Press Design to create this brilliant honeycomb pattern. Each full set contains three dies that you can mix and match to create amazing textured patterns, or you can use them individually for a completely new look!


To create this colorful elephant card, I started with the Birch Press Design Honey Bee Layer A, B, and C in shades of baby blue and turquoise. They three cut panels were adhered to a limey green card base. It looks gorgeous and it feeeeeels amazing!

I added the Stitched Elephant, Pinpoint Balloons, and Water Spouts, all from Poppystamps.

    Hi Michele, This is a superb card, the cute elephant with water spouting and the lovely pinpoint balloons, the gorgeous colours and the fantastically textured background dies, all culminating in this ‘work of art’. I love it.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    Your card is ready for a celebration. A birthday? A new job? Whatever the occasion, this card is ready with a lot of colorful balloons and a sweet elephant serving as a mascot. What a fun design!
