 Hi there ! I hope you are enjoying the Poppystamps Blog Blitz !

As soon as the new dies came back in July I sat down to make this shaker card just for fun , I liked it so much I thought I should use it for the blog blitz!

Download

My top layer is watercolor paper to add a bit of texture. I added a layer of acetate under the second layer of paper, then added glass beads for the shaker.

I cut the word Merry, from the new Merry Frame and the word Christmas, from the new Christmas frame. I love that I now have an easy "Merry Christmas" sentiment to add to any of my Christmas cards. I sure need to get busy , I usually have about half  of my Christmas cards completed  by now.

Happy 4th
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0017

A big Happy 4th of July to all Poppy's American friends!

We celebrate the 4th with a traditional block party, including lots of bar-b-que, and friends.

Nancy here, and I'm sharing a card made with a new Poppy Stamps die called, Floribunda Collage.

They're flower images, but I love getting mileage from all my dies, and I know you do too!

1st, I made a stencil with the Floribunda die, cutting the image twice to cover the card front.

Then, sponge inked the stencil with Fired Brick and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks.

Kinda looks like fireworks!

Next, using Stitched Tunnel Tags, cut out the center, and center of the center.

Be sure to use the 2nd largest tag size, and the 4th largest to cut the stenciled card.

DSC_0008

See how they're lined up on the magnetic sheet by size? 

Perfect for the next step.

You're going to die cut the largest tag from blue card stock, and the 3rd largest die from 

deep red card stock. For added dimension cut each tag 3 times, stacking and gluing together.

The 'Happy' and the 'th' are letters cut from Happy Birthday Background, first in white, then in dark blue.

DSC_0010

I made the 4, first drawing what I wanted, applied red glitter, and when that was dry, added Glossy Accents.

DSC_0014

Finished it off with sequins and some twine at the top. Looks like a firecracker, doesn't it?

Hope you enjoyed a look at one way to get more use from your dies,

and hope your day (and night) is full of fun!

Flowers bloom
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_6541

 Hi

 Today I would like to present this energetic, positive card. White background is done with two cut outs made with Floribunda Collage one on each side. As usual I used watercolor paper underneath the white one. Stiched Butterfly Trio forthose lovely butterflies - big one layers are again painted with watercolor paints. Please check how the Love text is done - again two layers - one inside the other. I think it looks better then just a single  cut out. I used here the Big Halo Love die.

All is finished with some sequins to make it slightly shiner. Hope you enjoy it!

Hello Poppystamps Fans.

Today I prepared a delicate and fresh C&S card.

I cut a rectangle a little smaller than the base of my card. Then I cut the leaves. Under leaves I glued green paper, painted with watercolors. The word "Hello" has two layers - white and pink. I wrapped my card with green twine. Last step - I add some sequins and spalsh black and turquise paint.

Big Halo Hello
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0007

Hello, and hope all the moms had a Happy Mother's Day!

It's Blog Blitz time at Poppy Stamps!

And I'm happy to be joining the Poppy Design team with my very first post.

Meet a new word die called, Big Halo Hello.

There's so much you can do with a large word die. 

Dave did a beautiful watercolor background to showcase his card using this die.

Take a look at another way to make your word dies pop.

DSC_0001

The large word die, 'Hello', comes in 2 pieces, wired together, which I snipped apart.

The larger, fatter die, I die cut on an angle, on the front of my card, giving me a window.

After rainbow inking the larger die cut, I replaced it in the window cutout, gluing it in place.

The smaller, skinny hello, I cut several times, all from white card stock, gluing them on the front

of the card, and snipping off the edges. Really gives it a dramatic embossed look, don't you think?

DSC_0015

You  can see what the inside of the card looks like. Still plenty of room for your message.

Here's a look at another card using this method, in cooler rainbow colors!

thank you
Mona Pendleton

Hi there! It's Mona here today with a thank you card to share.

My card features a fun butterfly shaped shaker. To create this card, I used one of the Stitched Butterfly Trio die to cut a butterfly window on a memory box Stitched Rectangle Layer. I filled the shaker with sequins then layered with another Stitched Rectangle Layer. I added a Pretty Stitches border.

MonaPendletonbfly

The fun background was created using the Heart Pattern Plate and the sentiment is from the Hope and Thanks stamp set.
