Florisima Trail
by Sue McRae

Welcome, I hope you've been following along with us this past week with the blog blitz we have going on. There's another week left of new products and fabulous inspiration by the design team.

P1350046c

Today I'm showcasing the Florisima Trail die. When I saw this die the first thing I thought of was using it to create a butterfly trail and that's exactly what I did.

Out of white linen card stock I die cut the Florisima Trail so that it would start at the butterfly and end off of the paper. I then flicked gold paint across this panel.

P1350106c

I took a piece of white card stock and created an inky rainbow using Distress Inks and gave it a quick spray with Perfect Pearls. I adhered this rainbow piece behind the opening in the white panel and inlaid the flowery trail right on top.

I die cut the largest butterfly from the Stitched Butterfly Trio from white card stock and inked it up with Distress Inks in blue and purple and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. Then I die cut the butterfly three times from black card stock and adhered all the butterfly layers together by adding adhesive to only the centre of the butterfly so the wings could be fluffed.

P1350080c

The butterfly and Scribble Thank You were adhered to the panel and that was attached to a black card base. I finished off the card with some gems.

For the focal point, I featured a double layered pretty Scribble Flower Circle. I love all the pretty little flowers as they are the perfect place holders for tiny pearls. For the sentiment, I used the Scribble hello die and finished with a couple of Pretty Stitches trimming.

I couldn't resist embellishing with a triple layered Stitched Butterfly:

Welcome to the blog and a New release! We've got some new dies to share and that means we're having a Blog Blitz! During the the blitz we will be showing you projects made with the newest release and giving you a chance to win on every single post! Today I am sharing the Mushrooms and Toadstools die.

I did some inking with distress inks. Used the Open Studio dies circles for my stage for my scene. I then added some die cut flowers from the Madison window set along with the greenery. Stickles are a must with any fairy scene.

I just love this card, she was a labor of love for me. Took me three days from my visualization to completion. I know some cards are like that for me.

Hi Everyone! It's Mona here with a clean and simple card to share featuring fun dies from the New Mini Release including the Atessa Collage and Stitched Butterfly Trio dies.

For the background, I used the Atessa Collage die to cut a piece of white cardstock then layered it on top of a piece of green cardstock:

I stamped one of the many sentiments from the Friends and Flowers stamp set then embellished with a layered stitched butterfly that was die cut using a couple different sized Stitched Butterfly Trio dies:

To create this card, I made a layered Powell Butterfly which I then embellished with a layered metallic Stitched Bloom using the smallest of the three Stitched Bloom Trio dies. I added trimming that was made using two of the three pretty Eyelet Stitches dies.  I completed the card with a metallic Scribble Hello sentiment.

Be Mine
by Jinny Newlin

Hey, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my hubby's Valentine.

Poppy Be Mine - JinnyNewlin

I started his card by adding a little interest to the Pool Party, cardstock, card face, which had its bottom corners rounded, by rubbing Pumice Stone and Broken China Distress Inks through lattice and heart stencils respectively.  I then popped a white, cardstock Stitched Tunnel Tag up, just right of vertical center, with foam tape.  The tag itself was topped with a piece of watercolor paper, watercolored in shades of blue and speckled with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  The watercolor piece was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with a trio of hearts and topped with the die-cut, black, cardstock Playful Deer Collage, which I white-embossed with a "be mine" sentiment.  I have no idea why the black is photographing as though it is speckled with white spots.  I promise they aren't there in real life.  Grrr!  So frustrating!  Maybe I'd better take a closer look at my camera lens.  It's been keeping pretty busy lately.  Anyway, both the stamped hearts and sentiment came from our playful, Be Mine Penguins stamp set.

2.15.17 030

The completed tag was then laced with a length of hemp twine and embellished with a length of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and dressed up with a sheer, turquoise, polka dot ribbon, tied in a bow, as well as a turquoise button, laced with a white, string bow.

2.15.17 035

Our Powell Butterfly, die-cut from Island Indigo cardstock and dressed up with a coat of Clear Wink of Stella, and a trio of wood veneer hearts complete the look.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!

Thank You for Your Kindness
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a collection of thank yous I sent out for my birthday gifts last month.  Kansas seems to have completely forgotten how to produce snow, and winter really isn't much fun without such.  So, I'm willing the warm weather back with these springtime beauties.

Poppy Floral Stem Collection - JinnyNewlin
 Let's take a look up close and personal.  Shall we?

  Poppy Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by die-cutting the Floral Stem Collage craft die from Coastal Cabana cardstock and its flower, in three layers thick, from Ballet Slippers cardstock.  I then anchored the center of the layered bloom with a soft yellow button, laced with white string; and embellished the petals with a sequin butterfly.

  2.8.17 017

The "thank you for your kindness" sentiment was white-embossed, vertically, along the right edge of the die-cut window, which was backed with clear cardstock.

2.8.17 022
I then machine stitched a white-threaded, double, straight-stitch frame around the prepped piece's outside edges, before framing its backside with foam tape to house the shaker elements.  I couldn't decide whether I wanted to do a double or single, machine-stitched frame; and while the stitching does help anchor the clear cardstock to the backside of the window, a single layer is sufficient.  So, a few of the cards have only a single layer of such.

PLS Single Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin
A piece of white cardstock was then adhered to the kraft, cardstock, card face, before adhering the window in place over a healthy dose of heart, Sparkling Clear, and Seaspray sequins, as well as silver seed beads and those sweet, little, white, cardstock, Bunny Hop die cuts.  I just love how cute these tiny die cuts look in a shaker!

Flickering Butterfly
by Ilona Zbieg

Hi All :)

I know that you are all looking forward for the results of our Blog Blitz. Come back here tomorrow when we will announce winners names.

Today I would like to show  you to my latest inspiration in January.

I made an eco style card. The focal point is a butterfly Flickering Butterfly Collage, which I cut in kraft paper. I painted white paper watercolor in various shades of turquoise color.

This paper is glued between two layers of eco paper. This is the background of my butterfly.

White paper embellished with ornaments - Finial Flourish craft die. 

At the end I added a few sequins and splash sheet of white and turquoise paint.

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!

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!
