Camping Fox


Welcome Poppystamps fans! I have and adorable little card for you today! I used the brand new into the words stamps and the A Fox Tale stamp set. I also used the companion dies to a fox tale.



Using a versamark ink pad, watercolor paper and the Memory Box Shimmer stencil apply versamark ink through stencil, add white embossing powder, heat emboss then watercolor the paper to achieve the desired result!

Sorry for the shot of my shoes! Lol. I hope you enjoy my card and another way to use your stencils and embossing with watercolors.

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.
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.
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.
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

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!!!

Fritillaria Bouquet.

Hello Pam here, sharing  two cards made with this beautiful "Fritillaria Bouquet" I originally made one card using the die as a silhouette, seemed to plain for my tastes, so made another more fancy, hope it shows you a die can be either plain or fancy..


The silhouette in black is straightforward so will not say much about this card.




This card is more me!!!!


I cut the Fritillaria Bouquet die in white card. coloured with my promarker pens , green and lemons, using two flower heads on each I shaped on my moulding mat, a tiny amount of wet glue at the base of each flower leaving top open.. add glossy accents in this opening and place beads..well these flowers do have stamens ..


I placed stamp on a curve on my acrylic block, inked up in gold then stamped on my circle shape.

Butterflies & card edges have also been coloured with pen and glamour dust..Got to have sparkle..LOL

Leave me a comment by April 28!  One random commenter will be selected to receive the Fritillaria Bouquet die.  Winners will be posted on this blog on April 30!  Check back regularly - there will be a prize on every post during the blog blitz - today through April 25!    And definitely check out all the beautiful new dies from the brand new Poppystamps release!

Hope I have given you a few ideas to play with your dies.

Hugs Pam x.
