Ballerina Shaker Card
by Jeanne Jachna

Celebrate-Dance-Four
I hope you're having a beautiful day!  I sure hope you love pink because if you do you're going to love my card today!    Every time I see a ballerina I have to think of my daughter taking dance classes when she was about 5.  Things didn't work out so well for my little girl who was more concerned with the stickers they put on the floor to let the girls know where to stand than learning Plie and Jete, but boy did she ever look cute all in pink, head to toe, tutu and satin slippers! 
Celebrate-Dance-Six
I thought the FLORAL DANCE COLLAGE would make a fun shaker!  To spice things up a bit I added some layers of pink ombre under the shaker.
Celebrate-Dance-Two
I cut panels in three shades of pink with the PRETTY STITCHES border set.   The different shaped openings and fancy stitched detail adds a touch of elegance to the design.
Celebrate-Dance-One
The two darker shades of pink are adhered directly to the card base while only the top (lightest layer) is adhered with adhesive foam tape.  This creates a pocket to fill with seed beads and sequins! You can see the dimension here.
Celebrate-Dance-Three
A die cut makes the perfect simple sentiment.  This FANCY CELEBRATE die fits inside the FLORAL DANCER COLLAGE opening perfectly! 
Celebrate-Dance-Five
I love a shaker card!  Something about it just fascinates me!  OK .. so I'm easily amused!  HAHA!  The finishing touch on this one is a few BUTTERFLY SPRINKLES!  They're dancing along with this ballerina.
Celebrate-Dance
Have a great day!  I hope you find some time to make something beautiful! 
Hugs!

Flowers bloom
by Ilona Zbieg

 Hi

 Today I would like to present this energetic, positive card. White background is done with two cut outs made with Floribunda Collage one on each side. As usual I used watercolor paper underneath the white one. Stiched Butterfly Trio forthose lovely butterflies - big one layers are again painted with watercolor paints. Please check how the Love text is done - again two layers - one inside the other. I think it looks better then just a single  cut out. I used here the Big Halo Love die.

All is finished with some sequins to make it slightly shiner. Hope you enjoy it!

by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_6270

 Hello and welcome to the fun Poppystamps Blog Blitz. The blog blitz runs from May 10- May 21, 2017.

The new collection full of fairies is magical. My daughter loves the new fairy die. 

Today I am sharing a card I created with the brand new Floral Dancer Collage. I attached glitter wings to the back of the dancer..

I colored a white  paper with Peerless Watercolors from Birch Press Design, . This is the background of my fairy.

Because the card will be presented as a gift to a teenager, my daughter's friend, I added a lot of pink color and glitter additive.

Don't forget to leave comments as you have a chance to win this Floral Dancer Collage.

Pretty Preppy Flowers
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a spring floral card. 

P1350238c

I started by water colouring a blue background for my scene. Nothing fancy, just a quick wash of blue paint on water colour paper. After this was dry I took one of the dies from Delicate Stitches and created a frame on the background and then added a sentiment from the Ornamental Butterflies stamp set.

P1350257c

For the Preppy Flowers I randomly painted yellow, pinks and reds on water colour card stock and die cut the flowers from it. This way the flowers are uniquely coloured in an easy and quick way. Once the flowers were dry I brushed a thin layer of glue on them and sprinkled Distress Rock Candy Glitter on top. Since the glitter is clear you can still see the colours underneath and it gives the flowers a bit of sparkle.

P1350263c

I wanted a feeling of whimsy, like the flowers were swaying in the breeze so I decided to add a layer of vellum flowers behind the first layer and I really like how that turned out.

P1350243c

I figured a field of flowers needed a few fluttering friends so I used the Butterfly Sprinkles dies to add some butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Hi there! It's Mona here today with a thank you card to share.

My card features a fun butterfly shaped shaker. To create this card, I used one of the Stitched Butterfly Trio die to cut a butterfly window on a memory box Stitched Rectangle Layer. I filled the shaker with sequins then layered with another Stitched Rectangle Layer. I added a Pretty Stitches border.

The fun background was created using the Heart Pattern Plate and the sentiment is from the Hope and Thanks stamp set.

Spring Cleaning
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4406-wm

Hello Everyone!

Are you in the mood for a little spring cleaning? These little bluebirds are sprucing up the yard . . .or are they making a mess? Either way, they are just SO cute you will want to add them every place you can! I used the Small Chickadee, an old favorite, and turned these fabulous Mushrooms and Toadstools into step stools to help them get the job done.

IMG_4404-wm

I love creating cards that portray a little scene, or paint a visual picture. The trick is to mix and match your dies so that the images will always remain in perspective, creating or implying foreground and background. I wish I could tell you that there's always a hard and fast rule for creating perspective in your cards, such as big images in the front and little images in the back, but you can always use your dies to "force" perspective in new and creative ways. Sometimes, if I'm trying to work out a little scene, I will cut out a few of the dies in plain white cardstock and move them around the frame to see how they will look. You can also create scenes that extend off the page, or create multiple layers of depth, with trees and flowers in the front, and mountains or houses in the back. One of the reasons I love creating with Poppystamps is the terrific collection of images that make creating outdoor nature scenes a breeze, and you can be as realistic or as artistic as you like!
