by Jeanne Jachna

Valentine-Faeries-Four
I hope you're having a great day!  We're in the middle of a blog blitz!  That means that we're showing projects with the latest release and offering up lots of prizes!  It's my favorite time because we get to do a little something nice for you! 
Valentine-Faeries-One
Not only are there loads of new dies in the shop (think everything you need for Spring.. flowers, bunnies, hearts), but there's also a new stamp set with coordinating dies.  This set is called Valentine Fairies! 
Valentine-Faeries-Three
I started my card with a simple watercolor panel.  I left a bit of room at the bottom to stamp a sentiment. 
Valentine-Faeries-Five
I inked up the fairies with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers.
Valentine-Faeries-Two
The coordinating die set makes them easy to cut and arrange as  you like.   Don't you love them?    I think they'd make wonderful cards for your favorite princess!

Greetings Poppy Peeps! We're continuing our fabulous Blog Blitz with another new die and giveaway. 

DSC_0018

I'm featuring the very beautiful, Country Rose Corner. Isn't it divine? A few tips on creating a card using this die.

DSC_0028

I used my Scor-Buddy to score vertical lines on both sides of the card base.

Pointed Oval Frames provided a frame for next step, watercoloring a stamped bloom from Peony Stems and Blossoms.

I kept my rose dies intact, and added fronds from 2 further die cuts, slightly inked.

Blog Blitz Spring Bouquet!
by Jennifer Svare

GinghamSpringCard3_Watermark

Hello!  Today I'll share a few ways I used the Garden Bouquet and Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames to create these fun cards!  I just love using scalloped edges and they are especially perfect for spring cards (although I use them all year round). 

Spring Card 2 Watermark

I used different inlay and overlay techniques to create different levels of layers for some dimension throughout the flowers, and the Gotta Have Gingham by Lawn Fawn was used for the backgrounds in different colors. 

Glossy Accents was used on one of the cards to show how that might look. 

How would you like to win the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames?  Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win this awesome set of frame dies! 

I hope you have a great day!

Today I am giving away the 4 die set of : Double Stitch Rectangle Frames. All you have to do, is leave a comment on this post for a chance to win this die set!

Fullsizeoutput_1047

I cant even begin to tell you how manny possibilities you have with the: Rectangle Frame Dies ... you could use just the inside cut if you wanted.

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.

I hope you all have a blessed week! Thank you so much for the visit today: Hope you win! :)

Blog Blitz! Love Shaker
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0021

Happy New Year, everyone! Poppystamps is in full Valentine mode with a Blog Blitz featuring all new Valentine dies!

I'm showcasing 'Love Stitch Circle Frame'. Together with another new die, 'Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames', here's a little inspiration for a 'Love Shaker' card.

DSC_0002

I cut several of the love circles, one in white, 5 in red. Rather than use foam, I love the look of a contrast color to pop up my die cut.

DSC_0007

The scalloped frames can be cut apart and used individually, but I kept them together and embossed a A2 sized card for an all over lacy look for my background.

DSC_0009

A bit of Birch Press Design ribbon and some glitter dipped paper roses, and my shaker is ready for my valentine!

DSC_0012

I used a combo of red sequins and red sequin hearts for my filler.

DSC_0017

This angle gives you a better look at how I assembled the die cuts.

Don't forget, each comment during the blitz gives you a better chance to win one of the new Valentine dies! Hope you win!

Blog Blitz! Vintage Valentines
by Jennifer Svare

VintageValentine_Valentine1_Watermark

Hello!  I absolutely love hot air balloons, vintage postcards, and Valentine's Day!  For this card, I got to combine all three and I'm excited to share how I did these cards in the video below.

The brand new Hot Air Balloons are very fun and versatile dies. They are a great size to work with and the large one can even be a stand-alone focal point if one wanted.  I used the larger one from the set, masked off panels so I could color them individually, and added a little surprise addition to the balloon...  a decorative heart border complete with stitching! I used the Stitched Heart Curve die to do this and was so pleased with how the curve lined up perfectly.

Gold thread was used prior to inlaying the hearts to add some balloon strings, and a coat of glossy accents isn't necessarily vintage, but I just couldn't resist.

Nuvo drops were used to create a basket full of greenery and flowers. 

VintageValentine_Balloon_NoWatermark

There was no way I could leave out the incredible Swirled Love die, and so a second card was made.  These sentiment die scripts are incredible.

In my video, I'll also show some fun vintage postcards I found at an auction recently. So much fun!  

VintageValentine_Love_Watermark

Notice below, the frame is slightly crooked.  I actually left it this way on purpose.  Vintage postcards have very "handmade" imperfections in them, which adds for a lot of fun embracing "mistakes" that I would normally not use.  What IS perfect, however, is the incredible Be My Valentine Postcard Script die - I just love this!  

VintageValentine_FullValentine_Watermark

To leave the oval area clear of the embossing folder impression, I used an oval embossing diffuser plate.  This also allowed me to keep the card background to a single layer.

Hello and welcome to the 2018  Blog Blitz. The design team will be sharing the new products and you will have a chance to win one, each day. Today I will be giving away the new:Triple Heart Twirl die from Poppystamps . All you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win.

Fullsizeoutput_100f

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

IMG_1020

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.

Fullsizeoutput_1010

I used watercolor cardstock for my front panel stamped with a sentiment from the new stamp set called : Valentine Fairies.

Thanks for stopping by today, don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the die: Triple Heart Twirl die.

Many blessing to you all in 2018

Spring Release Blog Blitz Begins
by Jeanne Jachna

Spring-Bunnies-One
It's a fabulous day for a visit to the Poppystamps blog!  We're celebrating a new release with a blog blitz! Through the end of the month the design team is sharing projects made with the new Spring Release (you can see all the dies and clear stamp sets in the store here).    And as a special treat for you we'll be giving away one of the new dies or stamp set on every post during the blitz!!  I'll give you all the details at the end of this post.. but first.. let me share a card I made for today!
6Z8A6082
The focal point of my card is the new LITTLE RABBITS set inside the new GARDEN WREATH die.  These little bunnies are ADORABLE!  Won't they look great on all you spring projects?  Do you love the background papers?  They're from Lawn Fawn's Really Rainbow Collection.
Spring-Bunnies-Three

The sentiment is stamped directly on pattern paper from the GRATEFUL HEART clear stamp set. 

Spring-Bunnies-Two
To "set the scene" I added a STITCHED HILL for the bunnies to sit on.  For embellishments I gave one of the LITTLE RABBITS a pom pom tail, and added pearls to the GARDEN WREATH.  The STITCHED FLUTTERING BUTTERFLIES are a must have - there are 5 stitched butterflies in the set and I can see them in lieu of sequins EVERYWHERE!
Spring-Bunnies
