Have a Magical Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my big sister's magical, garden, birthday card.  Enjoy!

Poppy Have a Magical Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping those Watercolor Wildflowers, that I simply cannot get enough of, in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks, on watercolor paper.  I then spritzed over them with water to get more of a watercolor effect and splattered everything with those same shades of Distress Inks mentioned above, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  That set the foundation for my garden.  While it was drying, I pieced together the Blooming Poppy with Real Red, Basic Black, and Garden Green cardstock die cuts and the Ragged Daisy with white, Daffodil Delight, and Lucky Limeade cardstock die cuts.  Once they were adhered, in their respective positions, to the watercolor piece, I grounded them with a Preppy Flowers, Wild Wasabi cardstock die cut.

The prepped piece was then anchored, to the Pistachio Pudding cardstock card face, with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  The Magnificent Mini Faeries were die-cut from Basic Black and white cardstocks; pieced together; and adhered, with foam tape, within the garden itself.  Their wings also got a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella for shimmer and shine.

5.20.17 047

I then die-cut the Pinpoint Balloons from Coastal Cabana cardstock; adhered them, in their respective locations; also gave them some shimmer and shine with Clear Wink of Stella, coated with Glossy Accents; and anchored them to the faeries' fists with hand-penned strings.

5.20.17 052

The black-embossed, "HAVE A magical BIRTHDAY" sentiment, from Fairy Greetings, completes the look.

Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit, Poppystamps friends!  Have a terrific Tuesday!  Hugs!

Watercolored Birthday Shakers
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today.  I trust you all had a fantastic, holiday weekend!  My family and I had a truly wonderful, resurrection celebration together in the morning and were blessed to get to spend a little time with extended family in the afternoon.  Easter Sunday happened to also be my dad's birthday; and if it's okay with you, I'd like to share the card I made for his special day, with you all, today.

Poppy Blue Happy Birthday Bold - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by adding a gradient of blue watercolor to the 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" watercolor paper, card base.  Once it was dry, I adhered a variety of sizes in a gradient of cardstock, Pinpoint Balloon die cuts, trailing just right of vertical center, using Brilliant Blue, Ballet Blue, Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue, and Bashful Blue cardstocks.

4.15.17 013

The Happy Birthday Bold die cut serves as my sentiment.  It was die-cut from a wide strip of white cardstock; backed with a sheet of clear acetate; and secured, in its present, angled position, with both silver and blue-threaded, straight machine stitching.  Before sealing off the sides of the prepped piece with liquid glue, I snuck a number of Sparkling Clear sequins, along with lots of large and small, silver, star sequins, in behind the sentiment panel.

4.15.17 015

The ends of the blue thread were tied, to the front of the card face, in a textural bow; and a couple strips of silver, glitter paper, adhered to either side of the sentiment panel, complete the look.

4.15.17 017

I'm always running low on birthday cards.  So, I decided to use this same design to knock out a couple more in different colors.

Poppy Happy Birthday Trio - JinnyNewlin

The green alternative was made in the exact same way as above with the exception of using a gradient of green watercolors, green thread, and the combination of Hunter Green, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Lucky Limeade, and Certainly Celery cardstocks for the Pinpoint Balloons.

Poppy Green Happy Birthday Bold - JinnyNewlin

The pink number used a gradient of pink watercolors, bright pink thread, and the combination of Rose Red, Strawberry Slush, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, and Pink Pirouette cardstocks for the Pinpoint Balloons.

  Poppy Pink Happy Birthday Bold - JinnyNewlin

Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit!  Have a terrific Tuesday, Poppystamps friends!

Happy Birthday
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! Today I am sharing a Birthday card in honor of my Granddaughter's Birthday. I am still not packed and we have to leave in 3 hours. I think I am not going to get much sleep.

Poppymelodybday

I used the Happy Birthday Melody die and the Celebration balloons. I used colors that coordinate with the party.

Cut Birthday Melody out of purple and out of  a whit panel for the card. This could have easily been made into a shaker card if time had allowed. I splashed some ink to remove so much white space.

My tip for adding balloon strings, use studio multi-matte medium to glue strings after looping.

A set of Valentine's Day cards
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5465

 

Hi all.

Today I want to show you a set of cards about love. 

To create this card, I used a big set of dies and stamps from new  Poppystamps release.

As you can see, this time I didn't use watercolor paints. Only plain paper, Memory Box stencils and dies.

All the cards that I've done I donated to charity. 

I wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Hello Everyone!

Are these cool February days making you think of spring, right around the corner? Today, I'm celebrating spring with this super sweet, super simple card using the brand new Poppystamps die, Simple Sheep! Isn't this darling?

IMG_4137-wm

I created a super clean CAS card that's perfect for a sweet little love note to someone special. I used the new Simple Sheep and one of the new Love Balloons, with a string made from the pendant Ornaments. The tiny little bird is the Small Chickadee.

This tiny love duo is ready for spring!
