Sweet Pea Flowers.
by Pam Simpson

Hello Poppystamp friends,  beautiful "Sweet Pea Flowers" on this card today, this latest collection  from Poppystamps sure has some gorgeous floral dies.

 

IMG_0403-crop

This Sweet Pea die is large, you could easily use just one die cut on your card, me being me had to use two!.

This is how I created my flower, but they look just as pretty flat for posting.

I have cut in green card for my flower outline,  Next using doubled up heavy paper, I embossed in my die cutting machine, this leaves me whole flowers.

Cut & emboss

Next. remove from your die and I coloured as shown using pro markers, you can use any colouring medium .. I made sure I coloured in pink on the inside as well as outside.

Next I adhered the green outline flower shape to this embossed/coloured flower, cut around the outline with scissors. to keep my centre flowers raised I used a blob of hot glue! watch your fingers! 

Coloured

I love a shine and sparkle on flowers, I have used "Wink Of Stellar" Clear Glitter Pen,  Nova Jewell Drops, Hessian bow.. peeking though my oval shape, in pink I have used Tulisa Collage die. Pink tiny frame cut with Memory Box.. Open Studio..  Stitched Oval Layers..

Main card shape in oval, Top opener card, cut with my dies from my stash.  with Poppystamps "Thank  You Streamer" die.

Tip.. to make you card stand and NO wobble! I take from the back card only around 1/2" from the bottom of my card, I also do this with Circle cards.

Sweet Pea Faeries
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters, Sue here with a sparkly card featuring a few of the products from the newest Poppystamps release.

P1350413c

For my background I used Distress Inks to create a soft palette of pink, purple and blue.

I die cut the Sweet Pea flower from purple and pink glitter card stock and die cut the flower head from purple vellum and used the vellum for one layer of the petals. The vellum breaks up the flower design and gives it an airy feel.

P1350397c

The Playful Mini Faeries (there's three in the set) are a perfect size for fluttering around the flower and I love how one of them fits perfectly for standing on the flower stem.

P1350387c

Since I was on a glitter roll I pulled out some white glitter card stock and die cut a bunch of Leafy Sprigs to use as grass and I grounded the design with a piece of blue glitter card stock.

P1350378c

I finished off with a sentiment from the Fairy Greetings stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Ballet Diorama
by Olga Direktorenko

Poppystamps came out with the beautiful collection of Faerie dies of all sizes. The moment I saw them I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them. Each faerie die has a pair or wings but it can be used with or without them. I have chosen 3 sizes of images to make a ballet scene diorama. It is fun to make and easy to assemble - check out the video tutorial down below this post!

Hello Birthday Girl
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! I hope to provide you with some inspiration using dies, stencil and glimmer paste. I have used several Poppystamps dies to create this one of a kind card. Today I have a Very Special card that I have made for my Mother  for her 79th Birthday, she has Dementia and I am her Caregiver Daizypoppy

First I created my background panel, using a stitched oval Memory Box CO die and a Memory Box stencil (diapers) to push the Nuvo Glimmer paste through. I used a Purple shade. Allow some dry time before removing the stencil, however do not let it dry completely.

Oval stencil on a 4.25 x 5.5 panel for stencil mask. Then add the stencil and line up with another panel of the same size, you will cut it down to 3.75 x 5 after it's done and dried.

Spread the Nuvo Glimmer Paste through the stencil with a spatula, allow to semi dry and remove stencil before it drys completely.

Have a Magical Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my big sister's magical, garden, birthday card.  Enjoy!

Poppy Have a Magical Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping those Watercolor Wildflowers, that I simply cannot get enough of, in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks, on watercolor paper.  I then spritzed over them with water to get more of a watercolor effect and splattered everything with those same shades of Distress Inks mentioned above, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  That set the foundation for my garden.  While it was drying, I pieced together the Blooming Poppy with Real Red, Basic Black, and Garden Green cardstock die cuts and the Ragged Daisy with white, Daffodil Delight, and Lucky Limeade cardstock die cuts.  Once they were adhered, in their respective positions, to the watercolor piece, I grounded them with a Preppy Flowers, Wild Wasabi cardstock die cut.

5.20.17 042

The prepped piece was then anchored, to the Pistachio Pudding cardstock card face, with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  The Magnificent Mini Faeries were die-cut from Basic Black and white cardstocks; pieced together; and adhered, with foam tape, within the garden itself.  Their wings also got a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella for shimmer and shine.

5.20.17 047

I then die-cut the Pinpoint Balloons from Coastal Cabana cardstock; adhered them, in their respective locations; also gave them some shimmer and shine with Clear Wink of Stella, coated with Glossy Accents; and anchored them to the faeries' fists with hand-penned strings.

5.20.17 052

The black-embossed, "HAVE A magical BIRTHDAY" sentiment, from Fairy Greetings, completes the look.

Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit, Poppystamps friends!  Have a terrific Tuesday!  Hugs!

Princess Faerie Silhouette.
by Pam Simpson

Hello Poppystamps friends, sharing a  card with you today, I must confess I was not a fan of  Fairies, WOW change my mind since these pretty dies came along from Poppystamps May release.

IMG_0370-crop

Thought I would create a woodland scene with "Princess Faerie"  as a silhouette.. I`m sure she would look  just as pretty with no wings, as a child dancer.

Page

I have die cut three fairies to add depth, wings have been cut with sparkly black card.. I used foam sticky tape  on the back.

IMG_0366-crop

In this photo is my very old "Angelina Fusible Fibre"  you get in a  packet, you pull some fibres out and lay a thin layer onto half a sheet of folded copy paper, sandwich the fibres by folding the  paper over, then using a med heat iron onto the paper, iron the fibres together, this makes it fuse together.. I adhered my wings with pva glue and cut around with scissors.

IMG_0373-crop

Added a touch of blue ink to the white background.

These fibres give a lovely delicate look to her wings. I adhered them to the silhouette with pva glue.

IMG_0375-crop

I grounded her onto the Dotted Curve, stamped with the new Fairy Greetings.. Swaying Birch has been cut in grey card and inked some shading in grey, Chirping Birds in the branch`s. 

Magnificent Mini Faeries  with Mushrooms and Toadstools .

dotted a few crystal gems. finished card size 5.1/2" x 6.1/2".

Hope you like this card..my first attempt with Faerie`s..

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.
