Nested Dies Two Ways
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps nested dies 2 ways card 1

I love nested dies because they offer so many options, but I understand that they are expensive. So, I think it is always a bonus when you can come up with lots of out of the box ways to use these dies.

The NEW Stitchwork Frames dies are so fun because they create embossed stitch lines and tiny holes along the frame AND cut out the center shape as well. I used a couple of the circle dies to create a pattern on card panel and then layered up several of the squares and rotated the shape on the card front to create a diamond.

These techniques are especially fun when you have vibrant colors of cardstock to work with.

 The beautiful rainbow colours are from bits I had left, rainbow mirri sticky foil, think you can see the bits i had to play with!.

Did`nt work out to bad though..I have embossed this foil in my machine with the die, before laying the cut out die on top.

I have used "Stitched Rectangle frames" & "Delicate Branch Collage" both from the new release, I have offset the smaller inner frame, as I wanted a larger lower border for my peacock plumes. Branches    I coloured with a promarker pen. next 3d foam tape on the reverse, to add depth to the frame.

Card size 7"x 5.1/2" ..adhere the frame as shown..Stamp the sentiment of choice, mine by Poppystamps  from the  "Flower Patch" set.

Summer Release Blog Blitz-To a Special Friend
by Robin Tharaldson

PS June 26 Full With

I hope you have seen the latest release from Poppystamps...no? Well here's the link to see all the new products Summer Release! PLUS, you could win the Daisy Frame die from the Summer Release, more information at the end of my post! The pretty background die on my card is the Daisy Frame!! This die is 4" square and is very versatile! For this card I cut the Daisy Frame three times, yes I know, I do that a lot, BUT I love how it looks!

PS June 26 CU1 With

Also new to this release is the Friend Folksy Script die; just a super fun font! I layered three together, he he he, for more dimension and used a sentiment from the Fairy Wishes stamp set. I cut one sentiment (Special Friend) apart and added it to another (To A), to create the exact wording I wanted on my card.

PS June 26 CU2 With

The dark grey cardstock I used was a nice compliment to the light pink cardstock. It's a nice contrast but much softer looking than black! The following video will show you how to put this card together!

 

If you would like to win the Daisy Frame die, please leave a comment!!  Here's all the important information about Poppystamps Summer Release Blog Blitz!  The blog blitz runs from June 19-29, 2018; Poppystamps is giving away a prize on every Blog Blitz post during this time.  You must leave a comment on ONLY the posts you wish to enter.  To enter ALL the posts during the Blog Blitz you need to leave a comment on EACH ONE.  One person will be chosen at random from each of the posts during the blog blitz.

Summer Blog Blitz! Large Lovely Koi
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps Large Lovely Koi Copic Colored Die Cuts card 1

Welcome back to another day of the summer Blog Blitz! Today you will have a chance to win the Large Lovely Koi die if you comment down below!

Rebecca keppel poppystamps Large Lovely Koi Copic Colored Die Cuts card 4

I cut the Large Lovely Koi die from smooth, white cardstock and then colored it with several colors of Copic markers. If you don't have Copics, you could use any markers that blend well. The idea is just to turn your white cardstock die cuts into colorful images with depth and dimension without doing any stamping! 

Rebecca keppel poppystamps Large Lovely Koi Copic Colored Die Cuts card 3

I used the same technique with the Folksy sentiment dies and love the gradient look you can achieve by using markers that blend over a die cut sentiment.

 If you want to see how I put all three of these cards together and colored the die cuts, be sure to check out my video here:

And don't forget to comment down below for your chance to win the Large Lovely Koi die, which goes well with just about any sentiment, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Blog Blitz ~ Tall Sketch Daisies
by Jennifer Svare

Sketch Flowers2

Hello!  This new release is so much fun, and I love seeing all the new dies in beautiful creations!  Today I'll be sharing a tutorial of  this card in the video below.  The Tall Sketch Daisies created a shadowed effect with white against kraft card stock.  Along the way, I discovered a cool trick with using white-on-white that results in a beautiful, soft, cushy look. I'll show it in the video, but a hint:  watercolor paper!

Tall Sketch Daisies6

Just a few light colored crystals added a subtle sparkle and I love how simple this card is to make. Great for any occasion!

Blog Blitz: Summer Release!
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0062

Hi Everybody! We're celebrating a Blog Blitz here at Poppystamps. And if you love the die I'm showcasing, LEAVE A COMMENT! That's all you have to do, and you might win this darling Delicate Branch Collage die. 

DSC_0054

Couldn't resist making it into a  shaker. Like to make one similar? Here's a rundown of my how-to's.

DSC_0049

First I stenciled a card base with MB's Texture Dot Grid. I'm all about layers. And depth. and pattern. The more the merrier!

As you can see, I stenciled 3 shades of ink onto my card, not worrying about anything in the center, that part will be covered.

DSC_0052

I inked up a white linen look cardstock in blue and purple, before cutting out with my die. 

Also cut it again, so I could use just the branches. Notice I used my die with the branches on top. I knew I was going to add a sentiment on the bottom, so I wanted to keep the bottom clean.

DSC_0066

Friend Folksy Scrip is one of the new dies being released too. Stay tuned for one of the other designers featuring it as her giveaway. 

DSC_0063

I cut my scrip die twice, once from navy blue cardstock, then from white. I love doubling up my dies, for added depth. Did I mention I LOVE layering? Couldn't resist adding a bit of Wink of Stella to my word die.

If you'd like a chance to win the Delicate Branch Collage die, remember to leave a comment.

Someone's gonna win, hope it's you!

by Marybeth Lopez

Hello and welcome to the Poppystamps Summer Blog Blitz! You have a chance to win this :Best Wishes die just by leaving a comment on this post. Poppystamps has many new dies that other designers will be showcasing.

IMG_4141 Watermark copy

I diecut the word die out three times then glued each layer on top of the other . After placing where I wanted I added a bit of shimmer pen to make it pop. Something you can see in person better.

IMG_4140

I cut apart the Finial Circle die , glued on the front panel and also used shimmer pen .

IMG_4115

I kept the first word die in place so it was easy to layer.

IMG_4122 Watermark copy

I love the fun folksy font of this new word die. Thanks for the visit and thank you ahead of time for all the kind comments.

So many chances to win. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win "Best Wishes"
