Hello

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.

 I created a simple watercolor for my background  then adhered the images on top with foam tape. After they were in place I stamped some of the bubbles ( included in the set) near the fish . After the images were dry I added shimmer with Wink Of Stella.

Share the Love
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a card, highlighting one of our new, Spring 2017 Release dies, Butterfly Trio, and Birch Press Design's gorgeous, Watercolor Wildflowers stamp set.  Enjoy!

Poppystamps Share the Love - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping the floral images, from the Watercolor Wildflowers stamp set, in layers of Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Dusty Concord Distress Inks, as well as Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, on watercolor paper.  Their stems were stamped in Peeled Paint Distress Ink, before everything was spritzed with a little water to blend and soften the colors.  Once it was dry, I splattered some of the same ink colors used above, along with Pure Black acrylic paint, across the background.  Everything was then sprayed with a Pearl mist, which I know isn't showing up in these photos, just for a little shimmer and shine.

The bottom center of the prepped piece was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "share the love" sentiment, from our Be Mine Penguins stamp set, before framing it with both Elegant Eggplant cardstock and gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.

3.20.17 061

It was then popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape.  The Stitched Butterfly Trio was die-cut from vellum.  The larger two butterflies were layered one on top of the other; and all three were adhered, within the scene, just at their centers, in order to give their wings lift and studded with black pearls to complete the look.

Hello, Poppystamps friends.
One of the newest die sets is the Stitched Bloom Trio.

I made a short tutorial on how to make a flower.
I used a foam Foamiran and Stitched Bloom Trio dies.

3. The foam acts on the hot iron, causes that it becomes easy formatting.
4. When flowers begin to shrink a little, fingers need to be turn.
5. Then gently to form flowers.
6. Put all that hot glue.

When the flower ready, time for the creation of the card.

Leaves from the collection "Delicate Peony clear stamp" Birch Press Design, stamping and added powder embossing.
Then I cut out.

I used my Peerless Watercolors from Birch Press Design, love these watercolors for a rich vibrant color! I wanted the background to be my focal point so I added the Freida Curve in white only .

It is lightly stamped in a softer color ink, using a sentiment from the new Grateful Hearts Clear Stamp from Poppystamps

I wanted to show you what the front side of the panel looked like, much soother but for some reason I like the way the back looked with more of an outline of each cut.

by Marybeth Lopez

DSC_0261mittens

 Hi there ! I have a few cards to share with you in the next few days. First up I am using my wonderful 

Circa A, B, and C from Birch Press Design. I so love that set!  

DSC_0267mittens

 I found that the sweet little , Stitched Mitten Square fit very nicely inside the center of this card. 

DSC_0274mittens

I think I will be using this card for a babies first Christmas or just Christmas . I may stamp on on the outside when I decide.

I like to wait to stamp until I know for sure who or for what the card will be used.

I find it saves time when I need a card .

 

Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great week!

Birthday shaker
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to poppy stamps blog . Today I have a shaker card to share with you. I created my background using a custom stencil with a die from BirchPress Designs.

Poppy2

This die is really fun to use and makes shaker cards easy peasy! Just a bit of fun foam to make room for the sequins.

And here's a close up of the shaker.
