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.

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.

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!

Happy Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today; and I'm so excited to be back, sharing a project, showcasing more of what our January 2017 Release has to offer!  This one made it to my brother-in-law, for his birthday, late last week.  Enjoy!

Poppy Happy Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in various shades of green.  I then speckled it with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before using the Happy Birthday Tag craft die to remove its center.  I then went back and filled in a portion of that center with a separate, Basic Black, cardstock, Happy Birthday Tag die cut.  The entire piece was then backed with a sheet of clear cardstock to create the window, which was filled in with a variety of sequins, seed beads, and a number of cardstock, Tiny Feathers die cuts.

1.9.17 084

For the back of the window, I used a plain piece of white cardstock so as not to compete with everything else that was already going on.  Black-threaded, straight, machine stitching secures all the layers together.  The entire piece was then popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape and dressed up with a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, embellished with a black, gingham bow, as well as a black button, laced with teal twine, tied in a bow.

1.9.17 077

Thanks, as always, for humbling us with a visit!  Have a blessed last day of January, and we'll see you next month!  Hugs!

Apple Butter Gift Tags
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a couple more of my apple butter gift tags.  For the first one, I turned our Bauble Tree Background die into a tag itself; and for the second, I had lots of fun creating a watercolor scene.

Poppystamps Apple Butter Gift Tags - JinnyNewlinLet's get up close and personal with the first.

Poppystamps Bauble Tree Gift Tag - JinnyNewlinI started this tag by die-cutting the Bauble Tree Background base from Basic Black cardstock and topping it with a die-cut, from silver, glitter cardstock, Merry Bauble Tree.  It's bottom edge was then decked out with a silver-embossed, on a strip of black cardstock, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape.

and its top was simply punched with a small hole through which to thread white string, which was tied, in a bow, after being laced through a black button and embellished with lots of fabulous, color-coordinating ribbons and trims, tied in bows themselves.

12.10.16 025I used our largest Festival Tags die as a foundation for the second.

Poppystamps Watercolor Gift Tag - JinnyNewlinIt was watercolored and speckled in shades of aqua and turquoise.  I then die-cut the Winter Pine from textured, Garden Green cardstock.  Before popping it out of the die, I sponged it up with VersaMark ink to emboss the layers of snow with white powder.  It was then popped up with foam tape, just as the deer, which was die-cut from Soft Suede cardstock, was.  I couldn't help but give the deer a little, red, rhinestone nose, before splattering everything with Titanium White acrylic paint.

12.10.16 033The "the most wonderful time of the year" sentiment was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, along the vertical right edge of the tag.

12.10.16 014

Before the tag was laced, through a punched hole, surrounded with a die-cut, Crumb Cake cardstock ring, and tied in a bow, another scrumptious, white, glitter, cardstock Ava Snowflake die cut was added, to the tree, to complete the look.

12.10.16 016That covers things, for today, Poppystamps' friends.  Thanks so much for visiting us, and have a terrific Tuesday!

Sept. Blog Blitz: Season's Greetings
by Jinny Newlin

Afternoon, y'all!  It's Jinny here again, sharing a card that's dressed for the Christmas season, for day three of our September Blog Blitz.

Poppy Season's Greetings - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by watercoloring the space behind where the Ornament Tree die cut would eventually lie on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered it with those same shades of green watercolor, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before framing it with both Lake House cardstock and gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  The tree itself was die-cut from white cardstock, and the "season's greetings" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, along its right edge.

9.19.16 028
A number of turquoise, red, and crystal buttons were sewn, using gold thread, into the nearly-solid white spaces on the tree; before it was popped off the surface, of the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.

9.19.16 029
Die-cut, Garden Green, cardstock  Pine Twigs, as well as a Real Red, cardstock Lovely Bow, which was coated in a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella, complete the look.

HOPING

Hello crafty friends, Yoonsun here.

Today, I made simple and easy card with Large Stitched Buttons.

YoonsunHur-20150616-Poppystamps01

To create the card, I die cut buttons from assorted colored cardstock using Large Stitched Buttons and then mounted them as shown to the white paper panel. For the sentiment, I stamped 'HOPING' from Hope and Thanks Sentiment Stamp set with black pigment ink. It is super easy to make!!

Happy Home

IMG_1801-wm

HOME is a wonderful place to spend the summer, especially when you're surrounded by lots of fresh air and sunshine! To create this happy home scene, I began by trying out the new Modern Mini Clouds designer stencil from Memory Box. Using a plastic stencil with embossing paste gives your cards a wonderful new look and texture! If you've never tried it before, the technique is easy and fun to learn.

IMG_1805-wm

I cut my blue background card stock to the exact size I wanted for my card, then used the Modern Mini Clouds to create a cheerful background panel. Embossing paste comes in a variety of colors, and you can also mix in a little ink or paint to create something different. I used white because it was perfect for clouds! Look at the beautiful texture the paste creates.

IMG_1802-wm

Once the embossing paste was completely dry, I then added a few of my favorite die cuts from the newest Poppystamps release. I had been waiting to put these dies together and they all match so well!  I used the Tag You're It Squares from Memory Box Open Studio for the frame. Inside, you'll find the Stitched Landscapes, Colchester Houses, High Flying Kites, and the Carnival Food Cart, all from Poppystamps. Those darling lollipop trees are the Stick Trees and the Stick Tree Tops, from Poppystamps. In the corners are cute little Button Oval embellishments. I love the pretty embossed detail in the buttons, and they go so well with any stitched look dies.

Poppystamps is a separate, sweet little division of Memory Box, and we love being able to work with the beautiful designer stencils from Memory Box. If you haven't tried working with stencils and paste, why not give it a try? We'd love to see your ideas in any of our creative challenges every month here at Poppystamps. Our theme for June is Oh Boy!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Live your life in color!
