Delfina Layers
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone! Thanks for popping by today for a visit.

I have a floral anniversary card that uses the Delfina Layer Dies from Birch Press Design (an online store by the Memory Box/Poppystamps owners) and the Daphne Bloom flower.

P1330420c

I started by water coloring a panel with shades of blue and turquoise and then die cut each layer of the Delfina set in vellum.

P1330413c

The vellum panels were adhered together just around the edges (I used a glue stick) and attached to the turquoise background. Don't you just love how pretty the vellum is when stacked?

P1330441c

I die cut the Daphne Bloom out of wood paper and red card stock and layered them, off-setting just the leaves.

P1330438c

The sentiment was white heat embossed and added on the diagonal and I added a sparkly gem to the flower centre.

Wishing you a crafty day!

Weeping Cherry Triptych
by Jeanne Jachna

Weeping-Garden-Five
Have you seen the Poppystamps Triptych dies?  What's a triptych right?  It's a work of art that's divided into three sections.  Poppystamps has several triptych dies to choose from.  The one I'm using today is the Weeping Cherry.   I think it has a very Asian look to it - the cherry blossoms delicately hanging from the branches.   I wanted this to be very clean and simple - and let the image do all the talking.
Weeping-Garden-Two
I cut a panel of white card stock with the Weeping Cherry Triptych die and mounted it on pink card stock .  I used a Sakura Quickie Glue pen to adhere the cut out panels into the open windows.
Weeping-Garden-Six
This is a very clean and simple card - all that was left to do was add a sentiment.  I used the "thank you" from the Flower Patch clear cling stamp set.   I was really tempted to color in the open letters on the word "you"!
Weeping-Garden-one
In the end I decided I needed something to draw the eye to the sentiment so I added a scatter of Butterfly Sprinkles in gold foil and shades of pink.
Weeping-Garden-Four
The white in contrast with the deep rose background is stunning!   this style die would make a beautiful shaker card as well.   I wanted to keep mine flat for easy mailing. 
Weeping-Garden-Three
The triptych dies are beautiful and easy to design with .  

We'd love to see what you create!!    I hope you will join us for our challenge!  The theme this month is "Fly Away With Me".  You can spin this challenge in lots of directions - butterfly wings or a trip your special place!   You can always find the latest challenge by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.

Tangled up by Lezlye Lauterbach

Poppyhalloweenspder

How fun is this! Oh My, I just love it when a project comes out just like I envisioned. Oh that always happens right? If you could only see all my tossed cards, snicker ;)

I used Memory Boxes webbed stencil and white pigment ink(stays wet) to create my background. I then Sprinkled and heated clear embossing powder over it, which gives the glossy look.

Spider2

I Put Silver Martha Stewert Glitter on the web and glossy accents on the Happy Halloween sentiment. I also glittered and glossed the spiders. The spiders were hung with American Crafts twine in Purple. I wanted to bring some additional color into the card since there was so much black and green.

Snow Dash
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3261-wm

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a card I created using a few dies from the brand new Holiday release, along with an old friend, the Boddington Tree Border.

IMG_3260-wm

This little car is so adorable that I wanted to create a crisp white winter scene and have the car and tree "come alive" with color! I made a different version of this earlier, using different dies from the Boddington Tree series, but I just couldn't make it all come together the way I wanted. So I filed it away and pulled out the Boddington Tree Border, and completed this card in just a few minutes! It was SO easy breezy and it looks really cute too!

The difference in my second card was that I put all the focus on this little car, the Family Car! It pairs perfectly with the Car Toppers, which include the tiny tree and a stack of packages and a bow. I mounted the car with a few little pieces of foam tape to make it pop off the card, and that made all the difference in the world! The tiny wheel dies are shaped like doughnuts, so I cut out two small circles with a hole punch and glued the white circles to the back, and then mounted each wheel with a little bit of foam. I love the look of the car floating in air above the wheels, which also pop off the page creating dimension and shadow. The little tree even has a flat edge on one side, which means it looks adorable when it's on the side on the roof of the car!

No matter what your crafting style is, from easy CAS inspired to massive mixed media projects, I guarantee that you will be able to find a Poppystamps die that you will love! Take a look at our new holiday release, enter our current challenge, and be inspired here at Poppystamps every day! You won't want to miss a thing!

Thanks for joining me today!

We all thank you for your kind comments. The last day to leave a comment on any card for a chance to win, is July 21.

DSC_0205deep

I used two Poppystamps Poinsettia dies , I wanted you to see it can be made into any flower.  I kept changing my mind as I made this card and ended with deep dark purple card stock,

added shimmer with a Spectrum noir clear pen( also for the background  splatters)

The leaves were colored with Zeg pens, the leaves are actually the flower petals, I do that a lot.
