Blog Blitz featuring Lovely Teapot
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi everyone!

It's the last day of the Blog Blitz and the die that I am giving away is Lovely Teapot. 

This time I have created a set of miniature tags for St. Valentine's Day  - they can be attached to gifts or used on cards. 

Valentine Mini Tags 1

I have used Little Taglet and Bow craft die to create a base for all three tags. I'll just be adding different focal images to make each tag unique. The first tag is decorated with Lovely Teapot and Little Heart Banner die cuts.

Valentine Mini Tags 2

For the second one I have used Embossed Heart Taglet. I have also added a Little Heart Banner cut out of gold mirror cardstock - this little detail is the same for all three tags. 

Valentine Mini Tags 3

The last tag is actually a mini scene - a rope walker walking on a string of hearts. It is made with Playful Mini Faeries and again the Little Heart Banner. The ribbon bow and flower are also the same for all three tags.

Valentine Mini Tags 4

If you would like to know how to make this cute little tag set watch the beginning to end video tutorial:

Blog Blitz featuring Tall Ship
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi there!

It's time for another post of the Blog Blitz and one more die to win! This time it is the Tall Ship from the January Release by Poppystamps.

Loveship 1

I have used this die to create a focal image for this card and combined it with some other Poppy dies. Die cutting is what this card is all about. The only materials I used are some white and cream cardstock, a piece of vellum, Spun Sugar Distress Ink and some liquid glue. It's all it takes!

Loveship 2

If you would like to know how to make this project watch a step by step video tutorial here:

Thank you so much for visiting today and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the beautiful Tall Ship craft die!

Delightful Daisy
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5122-wm

Hello Everyone!

Our blog blitz is rolling on with even more great ideas and inspiration, and a chance to win too! Today I am sharing a card I created with the pretty Delightful Daisy! It's a sweet and simple CAS salute to spring! Take a look!

IMG_5120-wm

This card was so easy to make (and quick too) that it completely slipped my mind to take a few photos of the creative steps! Ooops!  I cut out the Delightful Daisy in green, white, and yellow, the Little Rabbits, and the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies, glued them in place and it was finished, quick like a bunny! So today, I am going to share a little tip to add dimension to your beautiful CAS die cut cards.

IMG_5124-wm

This tip works especially well with flowers, leaves, and butterflies! When gluing your cuts on to your card base, leave a few areas of the cut "unglued." With the daisy, I glued down the center, but left the petals unglued, then carefully manipulated the paper  to curl the petals up a little, creating dimension and shadow. You could also try a double curl, where you bend the petals up at the center of the flower, then curl them down at the end with a pencil. This is a great effect on flowers like poinsettias or succulent petals, to make the cuts looks puffy. Paper is a wonderful media to manipulate with just simple simple bends and twists.

To add dimension to butterflies, bend them lengthwise in half and just glue a little bit in the center. You can create a swoosh of butterflies, for example, and bend the wings in different positions to look like they are fluttering. I think I'll try that in my next card!

IMG_5118-wm

I can't wait to see all your fresh new ideas with Poppystamps new spring collection! Since it IS a blog blitz, let's get to the blog candy! You could win the Delightful Daisy die just by leaving a comment on today's post! Enter every day for every die you would like to win! Best of luck!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Finial Corner..Blog Blitz.
by Pam Simpson

 

Hello everyone, going into spring with my card design today.  

IMG_1414-crop

As it`s a Blog Blitz that means a prize to win, so if you would like a chance to win this beautiful "Finial Corner"  just leave me a comment..

IMG_1405-crop

Above how I created my background colour using Oxide inks.

IMG_1406-crop

Background cut to size.. fantastic New "Double Stitched Rectangle Frames" around..Placed in my Misti  ..For placement of my stamping I have just placed the die cut words "Love" as shown (this has been inked while still in the die)..I also cut my stamps as shown as I did`nt need to stamp the word love and wanted a space in-between my stamping, so easy to line up to use! so this is something I tend to do.

  IMG_1407-crop

Stamped already to finish in pink Oxide ink.

IMG_1412-crop

 

Close up of the finished topper, placed on an angle! not very often I do this..can you see this pretty "Stitched Heart Border" another new die!.

 

IMG_1411-crop

I random placed some with dots and finished with a bright pink ribbon bow.. 

Thank you for stopping by Pam x

by Jeanne Jachna

Valentine-Faeries-Four
I hope you're having a great day!  We're in the middle of a blog blitz!  That means that we're showing projects with the latest release and offering up lots of prizes!  It's my favorite time because we get to do a little something nice for you! 
Valentine-Faeries-One
Not only are there loads of new dies in the shop (think everything you need for Spring.. flowers, bunnies, hearts), but there's also a new stamp set with coordinating dies.  This set is called Valentine Fairies! 
Valentine-Faeries-Three
I started my card with a simple watercolor panel.  I left a bit of room at the bottom to stamp a sentiment. 
Valentine-Faeries-Five
I inked up the fairies with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers.
Valentine-Faeries-Two
The coordinating die set makes them easy to cut and arrange as  you like.   Don't you love them?    I think they'd make wonderful cards for your favorite princess!
Valentine-Faeries

Blog Blitz! Introducing Country Rose Corner
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0020

Greetings Poppy Peeps! We're continuing our fabulous Blog Blitz with another new die and giveaway. 

DSC_0018

I'm featuring the very beautiful, Country Rose Corner. Isn't it divine? A few tips on creating a card using this die.

DSC_0028

I used my Scor-Buddy to score vertical lines on both sides of the card base.

DSC_0027

Pointed Oval Frames provided a frame for next step, watercoloring a stamped bloom from Peony Stems and Blossoms.

DSC_0026

I kept my rose dies intact, and added fronds from 2 further die cuts, slightly inked.

DSC_0022

Sentiment: Peony Stems and Blossoms.

Don't forget to leave a comment to be able to win this die!
