Hello, Marybeth here today! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! We had lots of rain here again in California!

Thought it would be fun to make a Easter card with the darling new Poppystamps dies:  Stitched Egg Medley, Bunny Hop and Happy Easter Curve.

The bunnies are layered 3 times, the first layer is a softer gray card stock to give a bit of interest to the layers with one being a bit darker.

The eggs are glued on and a few are with  popped up with a bit of thin foam tape. The front panel is raised using fun foam.  Easy card, once you figure out your layout. :)

Simply Love
By Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppy Blog! Happy Valentine's Day!

Poppysimplylove

I used the heart channel Die with the red foil cardstock, I wanted a masculine feel to the card and it needed to be kept simple. The love is cut from the scribble love heart in a shiny silver paper, along with adding the single heart to the channel.

My last Valentine's Card for this year! Have a great day!

Hi there friends, hope you are all happy and well! We have been enjoying so much needed rain here in California with green hills and mountains! Many sunny days mixed in as well! 

I used this sweet Heart String die from Poppystamps to create a birthday card for one of my sisters that has her birthday near, St. Valentines Day.

 I simply cut out 5 colors added a bit of adhesive to the back and then fanned them out. I used the new Poppystamps ; Grateful Hearts Stamp set for my sentiment.

There are many  little sentiments to chose from  in this set, this will be for a birthday .

Happy Hearts
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone! Sue here with a heart themed thank you card.

P1340933c

Do you see all the pretty swirly colours on the background? Well, that was done using alcohol inks on glossy paper. I attached this piece to a white card base.

From white linen card stock I die cut the Happy Hearts Channel and then used the Eyelet Stitches to add a decorative edge along the top and bottom.

P1340946c

I adhered the white panel onto the inky background and added a thin strip of black card stock along the top, two strips of the alcohol inked piece close to the Eyelet Stitches and a glittery strip to anchor the sentiment.

P1340940c

To finish off I added the Spectacular Thank You sentiment and a couple of glittered hearts.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a crafty day!

Grateful Heart
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters! Sue here with a heartfelt thank you card.

P1340898c

For the background I took a piece of card stock and inked it up with Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Picked Raspberry. I ran that through my die cut machine with the Heart Pattern Plate and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. This die is one of my faves from the new release. The pretty pattern adds subtle texture for backgrounds.

P1340912c

I white embossed the row of hearts from the Grateful Heart stamp set onto water colour paper, die cut it and painted the hearts with Twinkling H2O's in gold. Here's a pic showing the lovely metallic shine of the gold.

P1340919c

I decided I wanted to add a mess of white pearl thread behind the hearts. Boy, was that a chore to do! I couldn't seem to control the mess in a somewhat neat way but went with what I had.

The sentiment is the Thank You Channel and was die cut from water colour card stock that I painted with Twinkling H2O's in pink.

P1340903c

The card was finished with the addition of a few sequins.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a crafty day!

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!

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!

Inlay Heart
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone, Sue here with a blog blitz post featuring Valentine's Day goodies and products from the new 2017 release.

P1340800c

Today I'm using the Inlay Heart die as the focal image of my card. I took water colour paints in yellow, orange, pink and red and covered a sheet of water colour paper with no particular plan. Just some fun messy painting. Then I die cut the heart from this piece and and inlaid it into the yellow card stock.

P1340813c

I took one of the dies from the Delicate Stitches set and placed it below the heart, leaving enough room to add my sentiment later. I ran it through my Big Shot and it left a pretty pattern in the card stock. I also decided to embellish the two top corners using this die. The Delicate Stitches set contains three dies which don't cut through the paper, they cut the pattern into the paper. Great for adding pretty details anywhere on your project.

P1340811c

My last step was to die cut the Scribble Thank You from the yellow card stock and then die cut it from black card stock and inlay it.

I am giving away the Inlay Heart die to one lucky person who leaves a comment.

1704 Inlay Heart

He's Coming to Town...
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog! Lezlye here today with a Christmas Card. This is one of those idea's that just kept

coming forward with idea's.

Poppynorthpoledeer

I decided to do the card in white and gold and just a few touches of red. I had an open spot at the bottom and decided to add the hand drawn note pole sign. The sleigh was assembled and cut in half. I tucked it behind to make it appear as it was flying off. I hand colored twine with copies to make it look like leather.

Northpoledeer2

I used quite a few dies on this card, but I really like the way it came together. I hope you do too!
