Feel Better Soon

Hello! I have a simple card for you today, using the “Fritillaria Bouquet Die” I started with a watercolor background  then glued a few layers of the die the last layer has opal deco foil on top.

 There are many ways to add deco foil to a card , for my card I heat embossed with clear powder ( a bit of a bumpy texture but that’s ok.) then layered the foil on top and ran it through a very old laminator that I had from long ago. I ran it through a few times then took it off.

I used the stamps from  “Hope and Thanks” You can mix and match up lots of the sentiments.

Poppystamps Challenge #8 - It's All About Her

Challenge Badge copy
On the first of the month we announce a new Poppystamps Challenge  with a central theme.  The design team will provide samples for inspiration and you can play along through the end of the month for your chance to win.  

The winner of our blog badge for last month's challenge "Spring Fever!" is Jenny Alia.  She captured Spring Fever perfectly with her design.  Digging out the clay pots and getting them ready for planting, and of course a little bird singing to welcome the new day! CC Garden Scene

The lucky winner of the draw for the  monthly prize is Larissa Heskett!

Please contact me at poppychallenge@gmail.com to claim your prize.

Want to play?

The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any on line gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   You can enter as many times as you like, and you are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar!

Buttons!

Buttons-CU4

Do you love buttons?  I do!  They're just eye candy on any project aren't they?    The newest release offers lots of different die cut buttons for you to cut in a rainbow of colors!  Stitched buttons, flower shaped buttons, and buttons in so many different sizes.
Buttons-CU2
I die cut each of my buttons two times and adhered them together to make them thicker and give them the appearance of real buttons.
Buttons-CU3
They look amazing with the new Open Studio  "Country Stitches".   Open Studio is a new line from Memory Box.  It features lots of basic shapes that compliment Poppy and Memory Box including nested circles, squares, and rectangles - and new stitched shapes including these stitched borders.
Buttons-CU1
You might have noticed that we're using more Memory Box sentiments lately too!   They're available in cling or wood mount.   They're made from rubber so you get a perfect impression every time.    I thought I'd share with you how I store mine.   I purchase clear DVD cases from Stampin' Up!  They're perfect for storing cling stamps.  The clear case allows me to see exactly what's inside.  You can also stamp your images on paper and then slip it inside the clear sleeve cover.
Stamp Storage

Buttons-SV
Buttons-FV
I also want to remind you that today is the last day to leave a comment on the blog blitz posts.  We have a prize up for grabs on every post from April 13 through April 25.  Al you need to do is leave a comment on the posts that you'd like to enter.  Winners will be announced on April 30 to you need to get hopping!!  You only have until midnight tonight!!!
