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 .

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.

 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.

 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.

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.

 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.

 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! 

Hope you have a blessed week!

This is showing the back side of the die before I placed it on the shaker window

I cut the die twice so I could have a white outline of hearts. After I filled it with sequins I added a layer of vellum to the back before adhering to the base of my card.

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.

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!

Hi there sweet crafty friends! Welcome to the November Blog Blitz.  

We are already deep into the busy Holiday season, with Christmas just a bit away. 

I made another clean and simple card using the darling Tiny Fawns and the new Large Window Cut Out ( thats the prize I am giving away today.  The window seal is layered 3 times , for the glitter background  I added a rectangle of double sided sticky paper then glittered it that give a nice even patch of glitter .Download-1

Many years ago I made a birch tree card, to make the branches I stamped a sentiment on top of them in a light grayish color to mock the lines on the real trees. That is what did on the Tree Trunks from Poppystamps 

Download-7

Here is a larger  picture of the stamped trees.

I used Masters Touch watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby ( I get a lot of questions  about that) Don't forget all you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to with the Large Window Cut Out Die 1970.

The Blog Blitz 20th-30th November So you have plenty of time to leave comments . Hugs and Blessing to you all!

Peaceful Hillside
by Marybeth Lopez

Download-6

Hi there! I hope your weekend is going well! I love using these Hillside dies from Poppystamps , you have so many options. This is my first time using the darling :Tiny Fawn dies. I blended some ink on a scrap of watercolor cardstock then cut the fawns out. I was so tempted to add the spots, eyes and nose like Pam did( adorable) maybe next time.

Fullsizeoutput_d5a

I added a bit of soft green glitter to the trees and then left the card alone. I wanted to add a sentiment to the front but  decided to leave it blank and just let the trees and fawn shine.

Fullsizeoutput_d63

I am showing the back side ( not very pretty) of my project so you can see how I add my fun foam. I  used my tape gun to add tape where needed, add the fun foam and trim where needed. I then placed a piece of vellum over the opening to give a soft sky.
