 Hi there! If you are in need of a simple card with a bit of delicate detail this die just might be for you!

I didn't adhere the center of the die but you could if you want.

 I cut my panel 4 x 5 1/4, placed the die where I wanted it then layered it over my blended panel, cut just a bit smaller. 

I also added a layer of fun foam .

This  is blended with a brush for a softer look.

Spring Celebration
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4345-wm

Hello Everyone!

I love to mark the official start of spring as opening day of baseball season! March madness and brackets slip away and green grass and sunshine emerge! I decided to mark the start of the new season by making this fun card for my hubbie, who loves the Houston Astros!

IMG_4341-wm

To create the fun star background, I used the All Star Collage that I cut out of a light gray stitched card panel, adhered to a white card base. It really works well on panels of any shape--rectangle, square, etc, and you can use overlay or paper piecing techniques. Once I had the grey panel in place, I cut the All Star Collage again in orange and added the little orange stars like puzzle pieces with a tiny drop of glue.

IMG_4361-wm

I then cut three stars from the Scribble Trio set, and two Fancy Celebrate in blue and white.  Lucky for me, the logo of the Houston Astros is a big orange star, so I made this card in Astros colors. The light gray is a great neutral color, but hubbie's favorite Astros t-shirt is gray with blue sleeves and the orange star, so my color combination and that Scribble Trio star work perfectly together. But this sporty design would work great with just about any sports team, like Mariners blues and silver, or Cubs red, white, and blue! It would also make a great birthday card idea for your little All-Stars too!

Bunny Hop
by Marybeth Lopez

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. :)

Heart Strings in Color
by Marybeth Lopez

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 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.

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

Candy Cane Gift
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello and welcome to another day of Poppystamps Blog Blitz, we are  sharing darling new products and a chance to win a new die!

I love this Candy Cane Gift Die it sure makes for a fresh and simple Christmas card.

I also love glitter and added some chunky glitter to this layered candy cane. I think I layered it 3 times.

Many of you may already know this trick but just in case I wanted to share with you. 

Place Press and Seal ( sticky wrap) over the cut piece of die and gently pull up, the pieces will stick  to the press and seal

turn over add glue then place on your card . It will be spaced just as you cut it .

I learned this from another designer.  Im sure you can find a video showing how to do this .

I used watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby for the white panel, I love the texture! The gift bow is in foil red.

Birthday shaker
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to poppy stamps blog . Today I have a shaker card to share with you. I created my background using a custom stencil with a die from BirchPress Designs.

Poppy2

This die is really fun to use and makes shaker cards easy peasy! Just a bit of fun foam to make room for the sequins.

And here's a close up of the shaker.

Have a Happy Day!
