For the shaker window I used the Open Hillside, Sloping Hillside and Snowscape. I cut them all out of white for my card.They layer smallest to largest.

I re-detirmine where I want my cuts to go and lay them out and take a photo to refer back to for final card assembly. Acetate wind is placed over opening.

I use fun foam when I have a large piece to cover to pop up the top piece to give room for the sequins or your choice of shaker material.

Holiday Blog Blitz: Holly Twig
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a few new goodies from our latest 2017 Holiday Release.  Please forgive my photography skills, though.  White is super hard for me to photograph, but it's ever so striking in real life.  Enjoy!

Poppy Season's Greetings Jar - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by rubbing Broken China Distress Ink, through the Winter Scattered Snowflakes designer stencil, onto the center of the white cardstock, card face.  Over the stenciling, I created the scene with die cuts, beginning with an older Ava Snowflake, die-cut from white cardstock.  The rest of the die cuts all came from this latest release.  The Double Pine Cone Collage was die-cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock.  Tip:  Use the negative die cut as a template for gluing each of those little bits into their proper places.  The Wispy Pine Needles were die-cut from Old Olive cardstock.  The Holly Twig, which you have the opportunity to win on the blog today (Woot!  Woot!), was die-cut from Soft Suede and Garden Green cardstocks; and Xmas Red Stickles was used for the berries.  Finally, the Cute Fawn was die-cut from watercolor paper and watercolored.

8.8.17 027

I then die-cut the largest jar, from the new Jar Collection craft dies, in the center of a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" white, glitter paper.  A strip of vellum was gold-embossed with the "season's greetings" sentiment, taken from our Christmas Greetings stamp set, and adhered along the vertical, left edge of the backside of the die-cut jar, sandwiched between the glitter paper and a sheet of clear cardstock.  The edges of the glitter paper were then framed with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  Tip:  Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, machine-stitching the glitter paper and clear cardstock together also ensures that they stay put for the long haul.

8.8.17 033

The prepped, jar panel was then popped up, with foam tape, over everything else; but before it was adhered in place, I added lots of white glitter, to the scene itself, to create a shaker effect.  Tip:  Apply a thin layer of baby powder over all the glued bits, as well as to the backside of the clear cardstock, to prevent the glitter from sticking itself in all the wrong places.  The lid was die-cut from gold cardstock; hand-cut along its bottom edge; adhered to the top of the jar; and embellished with a couple of Garden Green cardstock, Holiday Holly die cuts, as well as a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, studded with a single, white pearl, to complete the look.

8.8.17 037

Be sure to stop back by every day through next Tuesday, August 14, 2017, to see what my talented teammies have cooked up, using all the newly-released goodies, just for your viewing pleasure.  AND don't forget to leave lots of love as you visit; because a new, Holiday Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Thursday, August 17, 2017, to do so.  Winners will be announced, right here on the blog, the following Friday, August 18, 2017.  As I said before, I've got that fabulous Holly Twig craft die, that you see in action above, to giveaway today.

That's it, from me, for today, friends.  Actually, that's it, from me, for Poppystamps.  It's my time to move on; but before I do, I have to send out a massive thank you to Jeanne for her friendship and loyalty.  She has unwaveringly believed in me and, without a doubt, been my biggest cheerleader.  I also wanted to thank Dave for giving me the opportunity to work with his gorgeous and intricate dies.  I have been stretched creatively beyond my wildest imagination but, truly, in such a good way.  And finally, thank you to each and every one of YOU, my faithful followers.  I hope this won't be the end for us and that you'll continue to come along with me on my creative journey.  What's in store is sure to surprise you as much as it does me, but I can't wait to see what it may be!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and good luck with ALL the glorious prizes during release week!  Be blessed!

Happy Dad's Day
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing the card I stretched my stash to make my dad for Father's Day.

Poppy Happy Dad's Day - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by adding green and blue, watercolor puddles to a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as teal watercolor, before smearing Tumbled Glass Distress Ink through the Memory Box Winter Snowflakes stencil and splattering once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  The Stitched Tunnel Tag was then die-cut, from the prepped piece, just left of vertical center and set aside for later before matting that same original, watercolor piece with white cardstock and anchoring it, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, to the Brocade Blue, cardstock, card face.  I then used the "happy valentine's day" stamp, from our Grateful Heart stamp set, to make the "happy DAD's day" sentiment by replacing the "valentine" with die-cut, from teal cardstock, using our Happy Birthday Bold die, letters to spell "DAD".

6.17.17 052
The Stitched Tunnel Tag, that had been set aside previously, was then laced with Baker's Twine...

6.17.17 058
backed with a bit of cheesecloth for texture; and popped up, with foam tape, in the same, negative space from which it was initially die-cut.

It was also topped with a stamped in Jet Black ink, watercolored, and hand-cut Be Mine Penguin, dressed in a top hat and tie and popped up with more foam tape, in addition to a stamped, in Cotton White StazOn ink, on clear cardstock and die-cut Grateful Heart.  The stamped Grateful Heart was backed with another die-cut, clear, cardstock Grateful Heart, before they were stitched together; but before finishing off the last few white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, I stuffed the formed, heart pocket with Raspberry, Seaspray, Crystal, and silver star sequins, as well as silver seed beads, to complete the look.

Thanks, as always, for visiting us!  Be blessed!

Best Fishes
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here, on this beautiful, summer morning, to share a playful, under-the-sea, watercolor card.  It was inspired by the new I'm a Narwhal stamp set and coordinating dies from our May 2017 Release.  Enjoy!

  Poppystamps Best Fishes - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by adding blue and green watercolor puddles to a watercolor paper, card base and splattering it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once it was dry, I stamped, from top to bottom, a gradient of Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, and Not Quite Navy waves across the background.

Poppystamps Best Fishes 2 - JinnyNewlin

I then watercolored a blue gradient onto a watercolor paper, Festival Tag die cut; stamped it, in Jet Black ink, with bubbles which would later be filled in with Glossy Accents for texture and shine; and popped it up, with foam tape, in the center of the card face.  A few, Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paint splatters set the stage for those darling narwhals, which were die-cut from watercolor paper; watercolored; and popped up, in their respective positions, with foam tape.

6.7.17 026

The "best fishes" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a hand-cut, vellum banner and tucked behind the lower narwhal.

6.7.17 031
Finally, I added a little, die-cut, Brilliant Blue cardstock ring to the top center of the tag and laced it with white string, tied in a bow, to complete the look.

6.7.17 034
Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit!  Have a wonderful rest of your week, Poppystamps friends!
