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!

Poinsettia Mini
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4996-wm

Hello Everybody!

We hope you are all enjoying our Holiday Blog Blitz and are finding beautiful ideas and inspiration along the way! Today, I am sharing a card that I have created with the beautiful Poinsettia Mini! Take a look!

IMG_4991-wm

I began with a completely different idea, but let the card take the shape of its own, and I love the final result! I began by cutting out seven tiny Poinsettia Mini pieces out of shiny, red foil paper, and set them aside. Originally I had planned to add a lot of snowflakes and fairies, but then I thought about a Christmas greenhouse, warm and balmy and filled with poinsettias! Native to Mexico, the poinsettia carries symbolic religious meaning in many countries. Did you know that in the United States, December 12 is National Poinsettia Day?

IMG_4994-wm

I used a handful of my favorite Poppystamps dies to create this sparkly card, and they all cut so well through thicker foil and glitter papers. I curled the leaves upward to add dimension, and mounted the tiny poinsettias with tiny bits of foam pop dots to raise them off the page just a touch. The centers are tiny silver pearls.

Our Blog Blitz runs from November 20 -30, so make sure you leave a comment on every day that you'd like to win! Today's prize is the Poinsettia Mini!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Blog Blitz Gingerbread Tag
by Robin Tharaldson

Gingerbread Tag Full With Water

Sadly Thanksgiving is a memory and we are on to the Christmas crunch!! I know I'm already behind so making a few cards here and there will hopefully help me out! Poppystamps has a new mini holiday release of 13 dies!  You can see them here in the Poppystamps store under the  2017 Winter Release title.  PLUS Poppystamps is having a Blog Blitz for this release!!  You could win BOTH the Gingerbread Boy and Girl die sets by commenting on my post today!!  More information about the Blog Blitz below!!

Gingerbread Tag CU3 With Water

My project for today is a tag card. I used Poppystamps Merry Christmas Tag as my main feature and added Gingerbread Boys and a Gingerbread Girl plus a pine bough with a festive red bow.  The Gingerbread kids have the cutest clothes and the Holiday Hats fit them perfectly!  To add their happy faces I used a white gel pen.Gingerbread Tag CU1 With Water

My video will show you how I created the snowfall background using Memory Box Tiny Dots Stencil and modeling paste! I added a silver dot to the center of the bow after I made the video; I thought it needed a little somethin' somethin' to finish the card!

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.

Download-5

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!

Thanks for the visit today .
