Fluttering Butterflies
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_135f

Hello, Marybeth here today.  Happy weekend to you all ! Already the 5th of May! 

I have a simple shaker card today using some old and new products from Poppystamps .

Download-1

I used an old shaker window I had in my stash from a few years ago, all you do is peal and stick to your card . Now with the Double Stitch Circle Frame its so easy , no cutting on front of card needed. All you do is add it on top of your card then glue the frame over that.

I placed the inside of my frame on the center of my panel... as a mask then began to stamp my images where I wanted.

I used Sending Scribbles Stamp set from Poppystamps to stamp the leaves  and Stitched Fluttering Butterflies for the inside.

Once I removed the circle mask , I was left with an empty center to fill as I wished.

Photo below shows the shaker before the frame was glued to the panel.

The Double Stitch Circle Frames perfectly finished this easy shaker.

Before I cut the butterflies I sponged my white cardstock with  with pretty inks . Once cut I added a bit more shading where I wanted.

Thank you so much for the visit today, I hope I encouraged you to do some shopping today 😊

Have a wonderful day!

Who You Gonna Call?
byJeanne Jachna

  Who-You-Gonna-Call-Three

I hope you're having a great day!  I'm playing with the new Rotary Phone die today!  I think this die is so cute.  It cuts as three pieces the phone base, cord, and hand set. You can trim the cord to make it shorter or keep it long to have the hand set in different positions. Here's what I made!
Who-You-Gonna-Call
I was thinking about the three phones and how to connect them - like a conversation.  I decided to adhere them on different size circles and then connect the circles by over lapping them.  I used three shades of pink card stock and silver glitter paper - changing the combinations so no two circles are exactly alike. 
Who-You-Gonna-Call-One
I stamped the sentiment from "Call Me" on a white card stock panel.  Then I arranged the rings on the card stock.  When I was happy with the placement I adhered them with liquid glue in a needle tip applicator.  The wet glue gave me some time to move things into place before they were stuck for good!   I tucked the circle centers under the ring frames. 
Who-You-Gonna-Call-Two
I used the Pointed Circle Frames and Double Stitch Circle Frames to add some interest.  The frames are two different widths  - so while they don't match, they still work because they're both circles.  The blingy rhinestones repeat the circle pattern.
Who-You-Gonna-Call-Four

I love the playful look of the finished card!  I hope you find some time to make today! Jeanne Floral Signature copy

Double Stitch Tag Shaker
by Marybeth Lopez

Download-7

Hi there and welcome to: Day Two of the Poppystamps Blog Blitz! The design team will be sharing some of the new spring products from Poppystamps .

You will have a chance to win each day by leaving a comment . Today I will be giving away the :Double Stitch Tags Die Set  to one random commenter.

IMG_2281

The leaves and some of the flowers are watercolored using the Peerless Watercolor Sheet Pack from Birch Press Design, then cut using Poppystamps New Blooming Border. 

IMG_2286

 To make the small tag for the sentiment I cut down the smallest tag in the set as pictured above.

IMG_2284

I wanted the die cut flowers and sequins to shake freely so I have two lavers : One with fun foam and the other double sided foam tape. I trimmed the outer edge of the fun foam to make sure it wouldn't show.  I also added Poppy Sequin mix of :Fairy Sparkle.

IMG_2419 

 These are the dies that I used pictured above , the sentiment is from the new and adorable Stamp Set :Easter Chicks from Poppystamps.

Having the two layers (to raise the acrylic layer) was definitely a good idea, happy I remade my shaker tag. I am sharing a few photos to show the movement of how nicely the move.

by Marybeth Lopez

 IMG_1563

Hi there and happy Sunday to you! Congratulations to all the Blog Blitz winners!

I have fun shaker card to share with you today: using the new Heart Confetti Collage and Valentine Fairies Clear Stamp Set.

IMG_1552

IMG_1548 2

 I have a layer of fun foam under my front panel then clear acrylic ( not pictured). I used shimmer water color paint to paint my back panel.

After I filled the hearts with sequins I added my painted panel. Then placed the painted panel over the filled, fun foam.

Fullsizeoutput_108a

 The fun foam is just the right height for adding a few sequins. When all the layers were complete I added it to pink cardstock.

Simple Shaker with pretty pinks and soft sequins. Hope you like it! The envelops I use, are from Birch Press Design.

Poppystamps has so many darling new dies right now that are so simple to use and in my opinion cut like butter!

The envelopes I use for my cards, like the pink one above are from Birch Press Designs.

The shinny you see behind the heart is adhesive paper , sticky side up. It helps the glitter go on evenly and stay put.

IMG_1021

After I sprinkle on the glitter , I press down on it , just to make sure it will fill in nicely.

Hope Your Season Sparkles
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0030

Working on addressing some cards today, and wanted to share one I did using my Finetec golds, with

Poppy's Perfect Pine Needles die.

DSC_0022

I knew I wanted to make a wreath, so I die cut the image several times from white cardstock, 7 to be exact.

DSC_0020

Assembly on a circle cut from 2 Memory Box dies taped together gave me the perfect wreath base.

DSC_0026 3

To add a bit of sparkle, the tips were pressed into Versamark and embossed with Antique Gold Powder.

DSC_0029

A sprinkling of glitter and my card is ready to send!

Happy crafting and Happy Holidays!

Challenge Reminder - Anything But a Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0024

Hello! And welcome to a friendly reminder to create something for our challenge this month, 'Anything But a Card'.

Need a hint? How about a gift card holder? Who couldn't use a few of those this time of year?

DSC_0010 2

Surprise Deer is so sweet, and gets the 'aaahs' everytime!

Here's how I used him to make my gift card tag.

DSC_0008

If you purchase one tag set this year, let me rave about Pinpoint Main Street Tags, and

Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations.

8 sizes to choose from, and together with the Decorations sets, you have endless possibilities!

I cut my tag from shimmer card stock, ran it though an embossing folder, and chose one of the decorations dies for a pocket.

DSC_0007

The deer was sprayed with shimmer spray, and sponged on the edges. Notice the antlers can be cut separately allowing for a color change.

DSC_0005

Assembling my gift card holder was easy. Just glued the sides and bottom of the added Dome Tag Decoration. The snowy base is the top of the Dome Tag cut to form a hill. The hill, snowflake and Tree Trunks were cut from glitter paper.

DSC_0021 2

Not decided yet who will get this Starbucks gift card!

DSC_0019

Liked this design so much, I made 3 in different color combos!

Does this give you ideas? Would love to see and comment on your creation. Remember, the challenge lasts all month, and there's a gift certificate prize for the winner!

Happy Crafting, and Happy Holidays!

Christmas Shaker Wreath
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_e6e

Hi there, Marybeth here  today. I used the Ball Wreath again this time for a Christmas Shaker with added holly from Wintertime Fairies, both from Poppystamps .

Fullsizeoutput_e44

This is the ugly back side of my card showing you the fun foam channel I created to fill with sequins. After I filled it I adde a piece of vellum over the opening. I was a bit messy with the sequins and some stuck to the tape on the back of the fun foam.( try not to do that....lol) Oh before I placed the fun foam I added a layer of acetate over the die opening.

Download-1

Try not to see my thumb... the lighting in the room I take photos is not good this time of year unless I take the photo in the morning. I added a bit of glossy accents and a bit of glitter to the berries. I used shimmer pens on the holly leaves.

Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0021

Greetings!  It's time for some Holiday card inspiration, and I have just the dies to help spark your holiday spirit!

DSC_0003 2

Is that sweet deer the cutest? 

DSC_0007

I made a stencil from the the Tree Trunks Craft die, and used my Starburst sprays.

DSC_0014

Lots of foam and more spray and glitter for the next layer,  Pine Needle Clearing.  

The deer comes with a separate die for his antlers, allowing for a color change if you want. I blinged parts of him with Diamond Stickles.

DSC_0018

The word, Sparkle, seemed the perfect sentiment for my holiday card!

I'd love to hear what you think. Did you get any of the dies featured on my card during the blitz? 

Have fun crafting, and I'll be back soon!
