Little Kindness.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today, sharing  a card using these new Poppystamps "Little Kindness" clear stamps and matching die set.

IMG_0646-crop

I have used heat embossable  Velum, clear Veramark ink pad, with "Stamp N Stuff"  Winter Wonderland embossing powder..Wish you could see the sparkle on these flowers and leaves.

Sentiment from the stamp set, Wow white embossing powder.

How I used my Misti for the placement of these stamps.

Showing you how these new "Pointed Oval Frames"  cut...I decided not to use this white and went with blue..(said before I tend to change my mind).. oval placed in the centre of a 6" square.

This is the card that has been die cut in my die cutting machine..Love the way these New Poppystamp Frames give you three possibilities to use on your projects.. 

IMG_0653-crop

I used just the white frame on my project.

"Delicate Stitches" make  lovely detail around your card, as they do not have a cutting edge! so can be placed anywhere you decide to use them.

I have used "Butterfly Sprinkles"...Novo Jewel Drops around the border and in the oval, flowers I used some gems.

Good Things
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Everyone!

Have you fallen in love with the beautiful new Poppystamps clear photopolymer stamp sets yet? Our entire team is crazy for these fun floral images, which is why you'll be seeing a lot of amazing stamped designs in the coming weeks. Today, I am sharing a cheerful CAS card I created with the Sending Scribbles stamp set, and the new Pointed Rectangle Frames. Take a look!

 

IMG_4630-wm

I went super CAS with this pretty purple rose and sentiments from Sending Scribbles. I started by cutting out my card base out of white card stock, then cutting out my frame, which has these modern pin point details around the edges.

IMG_4626-wm

I wanted my rose, leaves, heart, and sentiment to rally stand out, so I used clear embossing powder and a heat gun to give the lines a raised, shiny edge. The embossing adds a wonderful smooth feel to the images.

IMG_4628-wm

I always glue the frames down last, but I keep using the frame to help center my images before I stamp. I also will help plan my designs by arranging the stamps themselves, or by using a scrap piece of card stock to practice my inking technique.

IMG_4629-wm

Once I'm happy with the design, I stamp the images directly on to the card stock, sprinkle the embossing powder, then heat it with a heat gun until the image sets. I added the leaves after masking the rose and stamping directly onto the card stock. These clear images work beautifully for masking and stamping techniques.

IMG_4633-wm

Once my embossing was finished, I colored the images with copic markers and added a few purple sequins. Super CAS and will lie nice and flat in the envelope. By the time I was ready to add the frame, I thought it would look better in the purple than the green.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Golden Rose

Hi crafters, 

Today I would like to share a fun technique - creating shaped shaker windows with matching dies. You will need a stamp set with matching dies plus heat resistant acetate. I have used the fantastic new Sending Scribbles sets by Poppystamps.

Watch the video tutorial for detailed instructions!

Sparkle

I'm so excited to be introducing some new stamp and die sets today!  'Little Kindness' will have you feeling happy from first sight.  I  created my own background paper to feature the flowers and leaves in the set.

DSC_0004

Made all my elements first, including the bg paper, with a tiny 'dot' stamp in another   set called, 'Peony Stems and Blossoms'.  When the stamping and water coloring was done, I gave my bg paper some bling with Mr. Huey's Shine.  1' strip of glitter paper was cut long so I could cut it the length I wanted at the end.

Sentiment from another new set with 2 bold script words and fun sentences called, 'Magic And Sparkle'.

It's so easy to die cut images with Poppy's perfect cut out dies!  I first stamped and watercolored my blooms and leaves, then placed the die over the image, and cut them with my machine.

Life Is Full of Magic
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here.  I created a little number, using some new goodies from the latest 2017 Holiday Release, and wanted to share it with you all today.  My thought process behind this card was to make it look as though the largest of the new Jar Collection craft dies were used to collect treasures from a child's garden hunt.

Poppy Life is Full of Magic - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of watercolor paper, in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Barn Door, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks, with images from Birch Press Design's Watercolor Wildflowers stamp set.  Y'all, I just can't get enough of these gorgeous blooms.  Swoon!  I then spritzed everything with water just to fade the flowers into the background before splattering over them with watered-down Tumbled Glass and Barn Door Distress Inks, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.

Once everything was dry, I stamped the "LIFE IS FULL OF magic" sentiment, from a sweet, little, new, Believe in Magic stamp set, in Jet Black ink, along the vertical left edge of the prepped piece before framing it with Pool Party cardstock and white-threaded, straight, machine stitching.7.12.17 009

The jar itself was then die-cut from clear cardstock and filled with a Tomei Branch, die-cut from Always Artichoke cardstock; Pine Twig, die-cut from Garden Green cardstock; Ragged Daisy, die-cut from Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, and white cardstocks; and the new Sugarplum Faerie, die-cut from watercolor paper.

7.12.17 012

The fairy was also painted with watercolors; and a simple button, not to mention a snippet of cheesecloth, fills the jar completely.

7.12.17 027

To secure the jar to the prepped piece without showing any adhesive, I also partially die-cut and partially hand-cut it from Going Gray and Soft Suede cardstocks to create the foundation of dirt and the lid.  It was not adhered in any other places other than the top and bottom bits.  The lid was also wrapped with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow; and a die-cut, from Riding Hood Red cardstock, Stitched Butterfly, which was embellished with a single pearl and lots of Clear Wink of Stella for shimmer and shine, completes the look.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Poppystamps friends!  Be blessed!

by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone,  I love flowers..Have you seen these beautiful "Peony Stems and Blossoms Stamps and Die set" from the New Holiday 2017 Release from  Poppystamps..

IMG_0621-crop-crop

 

I have stamped these two flower sprays in versamark clear ink, then sprinkled white embossing powder over and heat embossed with my glue gun, next I used the matching dies to cut in my die cutting machine.

IMG_0616-crop

These Peony`s have been coloured with my Pro Marker pens.. I have added some background shading with Distress Ink Bundled Sage, the random dots are in the stamp set. 

I foam taped these flowers, onto an Open Studio "Stitched Oval" 

Page-crop

This is the Scallop  Stitched oval you can see in the background ..... I die cut "Pretty Stitches" snipped with scissors so it will go around a curve, adhered with strong sticky tape.. 

 

IMG_0622-crop

Finished with Bow.. butterfly sprinkles... gems.. Sentiment from "Fairy Greetings" CL452 clear stamps.  5.1/2" x 7" card size.

Sharing Two Cards
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_8a1

 Hi there! I hope you are enjoying this time of year! It has been extremely warm in this  southern part of  California!

I have a few cards to share today. The second card is using a very new stamp from Poppystamps ! For my first card I kept it simple and let the die do most of the talking.

Fullsizeoutput_8ad

I placed the die on my paper , added a few pencil marks so I knew where to blend my inks. I ended up going a bit outside the edge and happy to learn I could erase it with my eraser square. I used the Pinpoint Rectangle then placed my die and cut that out. On the back of the panel  I used fun foam, that I cut to fit with a few pieces.

I added a few Glossy Accents to the inside panel of the leaves . I stamped the sentiment using Grateful Heart. I also think this would make a wonderful sympathy card.

For my second card I used a masking technique I just learned about, I now love using it. You can use a stencil or mask your own center shape. I made a rectangle by taping off my panel then added the die-cut flowers from Peony Stems and Blossom new set. I added tape to the back of each cut piece, I made them less sticky ( so they would come off easier) by pressing them on my pants . Once in place I blended three colors of ink,  after I removed the die-cut piece I stamped the flower image onto the blank white space. ( you could color in the image, if you want) Carefully take off the outer tape and next you may add a sentiment. I used the same new stamp set for the sentiment.

We have lots of new stamps and dies coming up and we can't wait to share them with you!

Peony Get Well
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog, Lezlye here today showcasing a NEW stamp set and coordinating dies.

Poppypeony
I stamped the Peony flower on Neenah solar white yardstick and cut out with the perfectly precision die.  I chose a little deeper topic markers pictured below.


Poppypeony2

I drew up a sketch and  based my card off of it. I find this helps get the card design started if you ar having a mental mojo block...

I stamped with versa mark ink on my deep red yardstick circle with the dot texture from the set.

Fullsizeoutput_b5f

This Nuevo Glimmer paste is neat, it is thick and acts as a colored embossed look. Just look at that yummy texture and color.

IMG_3152

Poppypeony2
I circle cut a apiece of vellum, stamped the sentiment on a flag banner. I used some twine for texture. Final step to add some sparkle, wink of Stella and star sequins.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did with this Fabulous new set perfect for coloring!

Fairy Ballerina Spinner Card
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafty friends, 

I have been playing with Faerie dies for some time now and it's amazing how many opportunities they provide. They are different sizes and can be used with or without the wings, but I found out that they are also perfect for interactive cards. 

Today I have created a spinner card using two mirror faerie images. But if you only have one of those it will still do for this kind of card - just stick a thread and a pair of wings between the two die cuts! 

Watch the video tutorial below for detailed instructions.
