Coordinate Stamped Backgrounds with Ink Blended Images
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps easter card1

 The best part of creating your own stamped background is that you can create it in whatever colors of inks you own! NO matter what the occasion, if you have even just a handful of ink colors, you can perfectly coordinate your background to match the theme. But why stop there?

Use those same ink colors and an ink blending technique to color stamped die cut images or create coordinating tags too!

Check out this video to see how I created my easter egg background and then used ink blending to color my tag and stamped and die cut images:

 

I love how everything perfectly coordinates! I will definitely be using these two techniques together on future cards! Thanks for stopping by!

Just a note...Hello
by Robin Tharaldson

Mar 29 Full With

For my post today I am featuring the Big Circle Border Layer die; I think it adds a nice touch to my panel and allows the background color to show.

My bouquet was created using Peony Stems and Blossom, stamps and dies. The images were stamped with Memento Desert Sand onto watercolor paper and simply colored.

The following video will show you all the steps to make this card!

Simple and Elegant Hello
by Jennifer Svare

Peachcard

Hello!  Today I'll share how I created this simple-yet-elegant card.  The Woven Circle Ring die was used as a backing to the Double Stitch Square Frames die, and the dies do all the work to create this fun, simple, fast card.

I didn't even need to use foam dots or anything to raise the surface. By not gluing the center of the woven ring panel down, it creates the floating look without anything extra.

If you like this card, be sure to check out the blog at Birchpress to see a version I made kind of like this, but with using a circle instead of square, with a different background. I think this is one of my favorite base designs for cards to use.  The simplicity goes with any occasion, and the color variations are a lot of fun to make and give.

Check out the video below to see how I made this card.  Have a great day!

Blog Blitz Gift Tag with Matching Shaker Card
by Jennifer Svare

HappyBirthday Stars Card

Hello!  This new Poppystamps release has me spinning with so many ideas!  For today's post, I made a birthday card with a matching gift tag.  

The new stacking border dies are amazing.  They work well independently, but also layer for more effects!  They also come in a great variety from hearts, stars, hexagon, and circles.  I chose the stars with bright-ish pink and silver cardstock. 

The border dies are 5.5" long, which is great for standard cards as shown but I also thought it would be fun just as a stand-alone tag design.  I love the look of these and can also imagine red, white, and blue for Fourth of July, different pastel colors for baby shower gifts and cards, even Christmas colors for holidays!  These are amazingly versatile.  

StarsTag1

The new frame dies that go over top of the base tag dies make it so easy to get that professional, polished look. (Foiled cardstock looks amazing with these dies!) I love the double stitching, too. 

Stars Tag and Card Closeup

The Musical Happy Birthday die adds a special touch of personality to the card sentiment.

I chose the stars not only because they are great with birthdays, but because they also match the Fine Flamingo so well!  I used the flamingo with a few of the star cuts for the inside of the card.  A great, festive surprise that brings the whole look together.

FlamingoCard and Stars Tag

So now for the big question... which one of these amazing dies to give away for the blitz?  I'm excited for all of the dies used, but I think the most versatile out of all the dies used in my project for today has to be the Double Stitch FRAME dies that go over top of the base tag dies.  For that reason, I choose the Double Stitch FRAME die set.  Simply leave a comment on this post to enter to win this prize.  Lots of prizes to give away during the blitz, so be sure to leave comments on any of the blog blitz posts!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the video tutorial below:

IMG_1874-crop

Hope you can see this clearly, look at the Phone Booth, cut out in red and you`ll see a piece of acetate and strong red double sided tape! I used this tape to stick these together. I then trimmed around the outer edge and around the door! as you have the option to either keep it closed or open!.

Blog Blitz: Hello
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0043

Well Hello, and welcome back to Poppy's Spring Blog Blitz! I'm featuring a new die called, 'Rotary Phone'. Super cute, isn't it?

DSC_0041

Lots of Poppy on this colorful spring card, so let's get right to the 'how's'.

DSC_0031

I love the look of the Double Stitch Frames, and used the smallest square frame for the die cut phones. It's a perfect fit. The largest square frame is also a perfect fit for 4 small frames!

DSC_0033

The little rotary phone is an iconic image for talking!

DSC_0039

The die cut 'hello' was sponge inked. Wasn't quite sure which one to use until the card was done. It's OK, always like having a few handy for other cards!

DSC_0050

Kinda has an Andy Warhol feel, with the bright colored squares, doesn't it? 

Hope you found some inspiration today. Be sure to check back each day of the Blitz for more fun!
