Happy Easter!
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Morning-Five
I hope you're having a fabulous Easter day and that the sun is shining wherever you are!    I love creating scenes with my Poppystamps dies and today I thought a beautiful Spring Day was just the ticket! 
Easter-Morning-Two
I started by cutting the Happy Easter Curve from white card stock.  Next I cut it again from green card stock.  I inserted the white die into the negative cut on the green and adhered it to a panel of sky blue card stock.  I added some Stitched Cloudlines for the sky and a sun made from Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Circle Layers.
Easter-Morning-Four
To add some depth and dimension I added a second grassy hill by cutting the Dotted Curve cut from a light green card stock.
 Easter-Morning-Three
The Serene Rabbit is inspecting some Stitched Eggs.  I also added a Elegant Easter Lilly.  I cut the stalk from lime green cardstock, and then cut the flowers from white.  I inked the edges of the flowers with yellow and slightly offset them  when I attached them to the stem to give a fuller appearance. 
Easter-Morning-Six
A Butterfly Sprinkle of  flying friends in yellow and pink are fun and colorful.  
Easter-Morning
It looks like a beautiful day doesn't it?    I made one more really clean and simple Easter card today!
Happy-Easter-Watercolor-Str
For this easy card I water colored stripes of paint - colors you might use to dye your eggs!  and then added the Happy Easter sentiment in gold over the top!
Easter-Stripes
Wishing you all the best today and always!

Happy Easter
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing an Easter card that I made for my dear, sweet neighbor.  Enjoy!

Poppystamps Happy Easter - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by creating a puddle of various shades of blue watercolor on a 3-1/2" x 4-7/8" watercolor paper rectangle.  I then splattered it with those same shades of blue watercolor, as well as pink, yellow, green, and purple watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once it was dry, I framed it with Perfect Plum cardstock and white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, whose ends were tied in a little bow just for a dash of extra texture.

The Happy Easter Curve title, too, was die-cut from Perfect Plum cardstock; adhered near the top of the design; given a bit of shine with Glossy Accents; and grounded with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, "from all of us", which comes from our Christmas Friends stamp set.

  4.10.17 054

I then made the row of critters by die-cutting, from left to right, the Tiny Frog from Pear Pizzazz cardstock; Bunny Hop from textured, white cardstock; Simple Sheep from Very Vanilla and kraft cardstocks; the Purrfect Holidays chick from a soft yellow cardstock; and the single Young Fox Pair from an apricot cardstock.  Each one, with the exception of the bunny itself, was given a set of Bunny Ears, which were die-cut from Bashful Blue or Pink Pirouette cardstock, and popped up with foam tape.  The entire panel, too, was popped up with foam tape in the center of the white, cardstock, card face to complete the look.

 Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a terrific Tuesday, y'all, and a blessed Easter season!

Three Easter cards
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5353

Today we have three Easter cards which main motive are animals.

First one with two lovely sheeps is made with Ring a Ding corner die. Not typical arrangement but I think it looks good.

Another one with two rabbits made of Serene Rabbit die - this is one I kept simple with a grass-like motive at the bottom made by Tailored Stitches.

Last one which I like a most is the one with those sweet chicks. Hope you enjoy that!

Hoppy Birthday
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps blog. Lezlye here today sharing a froggy birthday card.

Poppystamps frog

I cut several of the frogs, lined them all up and added the jumping one to represent the birthday person.

I used my Misti tool to do the sentiment. I wanted to alter the saying to fit my dies. Just ink up a portion of the word, clean re-position and stamp.

I also used it to perfectly line up the second part of the sentiment on the die cut flag.

Happy Easter
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Good Morning Poppystamps fans! I have  an Easter card for you today.

Final poppy

I did an inlay technique here. I used three colors of cardstock.

IMG_2778

Use a post it note to hold the die in place, I ran my background colors with the white to get my positioning of my papers correct.

You will need to save all the tiny pieces to insert back into the letters as shown in the photo below.

You'll notice I used green to match the grass below and blue on top. There are several variations of this technique. It can be tedious but well worth the end result. I created my own grass tufts using fringe scissors and a strip of cardstock. Just tucking the eggs into the grass. A couple hopping bunnies to tie into the theme.

 I added Stickles with a paint brush and a little grey copic marker to the clouds. I hope you enjoy my Easter Card.

Stitched Easter Greetings
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Bunny-Four

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great weekend!  There's lots of new Easter dies in the store and I really wanted to make one with the Easter Egg Party dies.  I wanted to show all the different dies in the set (there are 5 patterned eggs) and came up with this fun quilted  card.
Easter-Bunny-One
Don't you just love all that pretty stitching in the background?  This one was a little tricky so let me show you how it was made!  First a little measuring!  I decided to make four rows with four eggs in each row.
Easter-Bunny-Five
I cut a white card stock panel slightly smaller than that of an A2 size card - 4" x 5 1/4".  Next I divided the panel into squares.  You can see where I scored the rows.   The scoring was really helpful in aligning the dies for the stitches.  I could easily see where to place the border dies (I used two different dies from the Delicate Stitches Set.    I have a magnetic plate on my cutting machine that held the dies in place nicely.
Easter-Bunny-Six
When the border dies were complete I added the Happy Easter Curve die and trimmed off the excess so the edges were even with the card panel.
Easter-Bunny-Seven
I wanted to point out that I lost a tiny bit of paper where the two sets of stitches cut over each other.    Mistakes happen and to me quite often!! LOL!!   No worries - you can cover up any imperfections with embellishments like gems or sequins.  I covered this up with a little bunny and I don't think anyone would notice if I didn't share it!
Easter-Bunny-Three
I double cut all the eggs - once from gold foil and once from colored card stock.   I actually inlaid all the eggs.  If this isn't "you're thing" you can use the Stitched Egg Medley dies to place behind the die cut eggs in the Easter Egg Party.  I don't mind paper piecing - it's a labor of love and I really like how it looks when they're all done - nice and smooth! 
Easter-Bunny-Two
I put a small piece of washi on the back of the die cut and then inserted the pieces - that little bit of washi held each piece in place.  When I adhered them on the card with liquid glue they were completely secure.
Easter-Bunny-Four
Here's where my little "boo boo" was.. before you saw it.. now you don't.  That little rabbit from Bunny Hop looks like he was meant to be there doesn't he? You can see from the sprinkle of sequins that it would be easy to hide other mistakes.
Easter-Bunny-Eight
Isn't all that gold just yummy?
Easter-Bunny
I love the quilted look of the design... AND I got all the different eggs on to one card!  LOL!! What will you make today???

Bunny Hop
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello, Marybeth here today! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! We had lots of rain here again in California!

Thought it would be fun to make a Easter card with the darling new Poppystamps dies:  Stitched Egg Medley, Bunny Hop and Happy Easter Curve.

 Watermark copy

The bunnies are layered 3 times, the first layer is a softer gray card stock to give a bit of interest to the layers with one being a bit darker.

The eggs are glued on and a few are with  popped up with a bit of thin foam tape. The front panel is raised using fun foam.  Easy card, once you figure out your layout. :)

Be Mine
by Jinny Newlin

Hey, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my hubby's Valentine.

Poppy Be Mine - JinnyNewlin

I started his card by adding a little interest to the Pool Party, cardstock, card face, which had its bottom corners rounded, by rubbing Pumice Stone and Broken China Distress Inks through lattice and heart stencils respectively.  I then popped a white, cardstock Stitched Tunnel Tag up, just right of vertical center, with foam tape.  The tag itself was topped with a piece of watercolor paper, watercolored in shades of blue and speckled with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  The watercolor piece was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with a trio of hearts and topped with the die-cut, black, cardstock Playful Deer Collage, which I white-embossed with a "be mine" sentiment.  I have no idea why the black is photographing as though it is speckled with white spots.  I promise they aren't there in real life.  Grrr!  So frustrating!  Maybe I'd better take a closer look at my camera lens.  It's been keeping pretty busy lately.  Anyway, both the stamped hearts and sentiment came from our playful, Be Mine Penguins stamp set.

The completed tag was then laced with a length of hemp twine and embellished with a length of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and dressed up with a sheer, turquoise, polka dot ribbon, tied in a bow, as well as a turquoise button, laced with a white, string bow.

2.15.17 035

Our Powell Butterfly, die-cut from Island Indigo cardstock and dressed up with a coat of Clear Wink of Stella, and a trio of wood veneer hearts complete the look.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!
