Blog Blitz featuring Tall Ship
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi there!

It's time for another post of the Blog Blitz and one more die to win! This time it is the Tall Ship from the January Release by Poppystamps.

Loveship 1

I have used this die to create a focal image for this card and combined it with some other Poppy dies. Die cutting is what this card is all about. The only materials I used are some white and cream cardstock, a piece of vellum, Spun Sugar Distress Ink and some liquid glue. It's all it takes!

Delightful Daisy
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5122-wm

Hello Everyone!

Our blog blitz is rolling on with even more great ideas and inspiration, and a chance to win too! Today I am sharing a card I created with the pretty Delightful Daisy! It's a sweet and simple CAS salute to spring! Take a look!

IMG_5120-wm

This card was so easy to make (and quick too) that it completely slipped my mind to take a few photos of the creative steps! Ooops!  I cut out the Delightful Daisy in green, white, and yellow, the Little Rabbits, and the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies, glued them in place and it was finished, quick like a bunny! So today, I am going to share a little tip to add dimension to your beautiful CAS die cut cards.

IMG_5124-wm

This tip works especially well with flowers, leaves, and butterflies! When gluing your cuts on to your card base, leave a few areas of the cut "unglued." With the daisy, I glued down the center, but left the petals unglued, then carefully manipulated the paper  to curl the petals up a little, creating dimension and shadow. You could also try a double curl, where you bend the petals up at the center of the flower, then curl them down at the end with a pencil. This is a great effect on flowers like poinsettias or succulent petals, to make the cuts looks puffy. Paper is a wonderful media to manipulate with just simple simple bends and twists.

To add dimension to butterflies, bend them lengthwise in half and just glue a little bit in the center. You can create a swoosh of butterflies, for example, and bend the wings in different positions to look like they are fluttering. I think I'll try that in my next card!

I can't wait to see all your fresh new ideas with Poppystamps new spring collection! Since it IS a blog blitz, let's get to the blog candy! You could win the Delightful Daisy die just by leaving a comment on today's post! Enter every day for every die you would like to win! Best of luck!

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.

DSC_0027

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!

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.

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!
