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.

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.

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!

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.

To create the background. I stamped the pretty flower bouquet from the Friends and Flowers stamp set in a heart shape then water colored using an oil crayon.

 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.

God bless you !

Hi there! It's Mona here today to share a mixed media style layout featuring a variety of fabulous products included in the New 2017 Spring Release along with a variety of other Poppystamps products as well as a photo of my sweet daughter Angie. This layout has a textured background that was created using the memory box Texture Chicken Wire stencil and is embellished with beautiful Poppystamps Stitched Bloom Trio flowers, Stitched Butterfly Trio butterflies, Freida Leaf foliage, a Festival Tag, a Garden Lantern and a Scribble Flower Circle:

Here's a few step shots I took along the way:

To create the background, I started with a 12" x 12" piece of watercolor paper. I applied a coat of clear gesso, allowed to dry then to create lots of texture, I used texture paste along with the memory box Texture Chicken Wire Stencil:

MonaPendletonStencil

Once dry, I applied a thin coat of white gesso:

After the gesso was dry, I randomly applied various colors of paint:

While the paints were drying, I created the embellishments. I applied Distress crackle paint to the die cut Garden Lantern. Once dry, I applied Distress Ink:

To create the flowers, I die cut several Stitched Bloom Trio flowers using watercolor paper then colorized with spray as shown below and paint (not shown):

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed my project today as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Happy Easter
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with an Easter card I created with a few of the new dies.

P1350125c

I started with a light blue card base and then die cut an oval from a darker blue card stock using the Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers. This way I could place my die cuts as I went along to see how they fit into the scene.

I die cut the Swaying Birch from white wood grain card stock that I inked along the edges with grey ink and a finger dauber, this helps to add some depth to the tree.

P1350135c

For the Easter eggs I die cut the Easter Egg Party from aqua, yellow and pink card stock and mixed up the paper piecing for some colour variation.

P1350131c

I adhered the eggs beneath the tree and added grass using the Easter Excitement die set.

P1350150c

Next I added the sentiment by curving it along the oval shape. To finish off this spring scene I die cut a couple of butterflies and a bird.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Share the Love
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a card, highlighting one of our new, Spring 2017 Release dies, Butterfly Trio, and Birch Press Design's gorgeous, Watercolor Wildflowers stamp set.  Enjoy!

Poppystamps Share the Love - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping the floral images, from the Watercolor Wildflowers stamp set, in layers of Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Dusty Concord Distress Inks, as well as Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, on watercolor paper.  Their stems were stamped in Peeled Paint Distress Ink, before everything was spritzed with a little water to blend and soften the colors.  Once it was dry, I splattered some of the same ink colors used above, along with Pure Black acrylic paint, across the background.  Everything was then sprayed with a Pearl mist, which I know isn't showing up in these photos, just for a little shimmer and shine.

The bottom center of the prepped piece was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "share the love" sentiment, from our Be Mine Penguins stamp set, before framing it with both Elegant Eggplant cardstock and gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.

3.20.17 061

It was then popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape.  The Stitched Butterfly Trio was die-cut from vellum.  The larger two butterflies were layered one on top of the other; and all three were adhered, within the scene, just at their centers, in order to give their wings lift and studded with black pearls to complete the look.

I took this picture before the Golssy Accents had a chance to completely dry.

I added Yosemite to my tag because this card is designed with our Yosemite trips in mind.

In the photo above I wanted to show you how you can add fun foam even with the scraps you have that are not one whole piece . I just used my tape runner and cut the pieces to fit the panel . This is how I raise most of my cards or I use a full piece of fun foam. The nice thing a bout fun foam to raise the panel is that you can still stamp on it if you decide to later.( something I do often)
