Spring Blog Blitz Begins!
by Jeanne Jachna

Wish-Dandelion-One
Oh what a great day for a visit!  We've got some new dies to share and that means we're having a blog blitz!  During the blog blitz we'll be showing projects made with the newest release and giving you a chance to win on every single post!  Today I'm sharing the new Dandelion Stem!
Wish-Dandelion
I started this card by making a colorful background of borders cut with the new Pretty Stitches die set.  The set has three borders with different stitching, and different shaped eyelet cuts.  I started by creating a panel of bright yellow paper and then adhered the stitched borders from the bottom of the panel to the top.  I  cut each border 1 1/2" wide.  I spaced the borders measuring 1/4" from the top of the cut hole in the border to the bottom  edge of the die that is layered above it. 
Wish-Dandelion-Five
Dandelions always get me thinking of when I was a child... we'd pick them when the heads were dry and full of fluffy seeds, blow on them and make a wish.
Wish-Dandelion-Four
I cut two of the Dandelion Stems so that I could snip some of the little seeds from one of them and make them look like they are floating in the air! 
Wish-Dandelion-Two
Do dandelions make you think of wishes too?  I'm wishing that you are the lucky winner of this pretty die! 
Wish-Dandelion-Two

by Ilona Zbieg

Hi Poppystamps fans,

Our Blog Blitz coming to an end. Don't forget to leave comments as you have a chance to win this All Star Collage 

I used my Peerless Watercolors from Birch Press Design, I colored a white paper,.Then I used the All Star College and cut out the background.

Under watercolor paper I placed a mint paper. TIt's just to get a nice contrast.

 Two large stars are additional elements, I wanted this card to be very starry.

Flickering Butterfly
by Sue McRae

Hello all, Sue here with a post featuring the new Flickering Butterfly Collage die. There are so many possibilities with this die!

P1340870c

I started off by colouring a piece of glossy card stock with alcohol inks in purples and blues. I die cut a square using the Pinpoint Square Layers, placed the butterfly die in the centre and sent it through my Big Shot. Then I flicked some gold paint on the butterfly panel.

P1340839c

The alcohol ink piece was adhered behind the butterfly for all the pretty colours to peek through and I adhered this to the card base.

P1340883c

I die cut the Blooming Dotted Border from purple card stock, stamped the sentiment and added a strip of glitter tape.

P1340880c

I added a few black pearls to finish off the card.

Today I'm giving away the Flickering Butterfly Collage die.

Please leave a comment for a chance to win and come back every day during the Blog Blitz to see more new projects and products!

Happy crafting!

I will Always Love You
By Lezlye Lauterbach

 

 

Welcome Poppystamps Fans!Continuing on with my Love of Valentine's for the Blog Blitz. I have used watercolor paper to cut with the grid collage die. I had imagined this card when I picked this die.

  Collagegridrevised

Gridcollage2

 

I watercolored the base using reds, pinks and a touch of orange the brushed on the pinks/reds on the top, die cut piece. Finished it off by adding black ink splatters, because I intended to add a black, white embossed sentiment also from Poppystamps.

The hearts were from the inlay heart die. I also watercolored the white one that I attached to the sentiment. The top piece is mounted with foam squares to add dimension.

Swaying Birch
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4096-wm

Hello Everyone!

The fun continues here at Poppystamps with our big new release and Blog Blitz! Today I am sharing a card I created with the brand new Swaying Birch! Take a look!

IMG_4093-wm

I created a fun spring scene, with a little love in the air! Last week, I used the brand new Love Balloons to create an urban scene with the bright love balloons floating through the city. For today's inspiration, I continued the floating love idea as if the balloons could be seen floating way off in the distance, in this spring view. It reminds me of a little park just outside the city.

I used the brand new Swaying Birch, which has a beautiful tree shape with tiny notches built right in. It's the perfect year-round tree! I added the Freida Curve, the Stitched Bloom Trio, and a little surprise hopping our way, Bunny Hop! The big pink balloon is from Love balloons, and those teeny, tiny background hearts floating through the air are from Grazing Deer!

All you need to do is leave a comment with some bloggy love on this post for your chance to win the Swaying Birch!

But that's not all! Come back and visit every day of our Blog Blitz and you might win one or more of the gorgeous new Poppystamps dies, just by commenting on the posts that feature your new favorites!

Scribble Thank You
by Jinny Newlin

Afternoon, y'all!  It's Jinny here today to continue our Valentine Blog Blitz, in celebration of the January 2017 Release, with a beautiful, all-occasion thank you.

Poppy Butterfly Thank You - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in shades of green and purple.  I then speckled it with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before using the new, Tulisa Collage craft die to die-cut its center.  I then backed it with a piece of white, glitter cardstock, before securing everything, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches, to the white, cardstock, card face.  The Corden Butterfly was die-cut from a piece of watercolor paper, prepped in the same way as the background itself with the exception of using different shades of watercolor.  I then topped it with a die-cut, Pacific Point, cardstock Powell Butterfly and secured it, just at its center, in the top center of the card face, with silver-threaded, messy, machine stitches.  A little foam tape, tucked under the wings themselves, ensures they will never lie flat.

1.9.17 057
A die-cut, from white cardstock, Scribble Thank You, adhered in the bottom center of the design, completes the look.

1.9.17 060
Be sure to stop back by every day, TWICE a day, through Monday, October 23, 2017, to see what my talented teammies have cooked up, using all the new goodies, just for your viewing pleasure.  AND don't forget to leave lots of love as you visit; because a new, January Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Wednesday, January 25, 2017, to do so.  Winners will be announced, on the Poppystamps blog, the following Saturday, January 28, 2017.  I've got the versatile, Scribble Thank You craft die, that you see in action above, to giveaway today.

 

 

That's it, from me, for this Blog Blitz; but there truly is so much left to see.  You simply don't want to miss out.  Have fun, and good luck with ALL the glorious prizes, Poppystamps friends!  Hugs!

Freida Curve Kindness
by Marybeth Lopez

 Watermark copy

Hello again! Hope you are enjoying all the new Poppystamps products and wonderful design team cards!

I used the Freida Curve Die along with the Dotted Curve Die and Grateful Hearts stamp.

 

IMG_5945

Not a very pretty picture but I wanted  to give you an idea of how I cut my layers.

The upper part of the paper is not relevant to the cut ( just a scrap piece of paper) You don't have to have both dies but the extra Dotted Curve Die gives you a few more options.

 Watermark copy

You can leave the dots in place if you want like on my first blog blitz card or have them out like this card,

it's your choice. If you want to keep the dots in ,  just add some tape to the back of your card to keep them in place .

I added two layers of the cut die, added a some sequins,the panel is raised with fun foam.

So if you would like a chance to win the Freida Curve die, just leave a comment.

Thank you so much for the visit today! God Bless!
