Hi and welcome to more of the new and just released, Poppystamps Dies and Clear Stamps! Today I'm showcasing Pinecone Branch Collage, a  positive/negative die.

DSC_0010

Pinecone Branch Collage gives you the die cut branch, and the negatively cut petals of the pinecones, which allows you to fill in the die cut holes with colored card stock, or allow the color from beneath to peek through. 

Here's how I made this card.

First centered and cut the die from white card stock. Notice I sponge inked a bit to give it a 'glow'.

Next I sponge inked an A2 sized card front, mostly on the edges, and die cut a window using Poppystamps, Pointed Circle Frames (2nd largest). Love this die! It gives you 3 pieces which allows the use of all or one piece. I used all 3 pieces for this card. Before cutting the circle, I mixed Perfect Pearls and water and spritzed the entire card and let it dry. I also cut the circle 3 more times, so I could pop up the rim on the window.

From the circle, I cut the word 'believe' from Poppy's Believe Loose Script die.

The rest of the sentiment was stamped on the front using Poppy's Do You Believe Clear Stamps.

Here's a photo closeup of the sheen on all the pieces. Also you can see the piecing on the pinecones, and just a bit of distress glitter on the branch and petals.

The inside of the card features stenciling done with 2 more newly released dies, Double Pinecone Collage, and Wispy Pine Needle Corner, and more of the sentiments from Do You Believe. I hope to finish the insides of my holiday cards as they're completed. Sure helps during the busy holidays to have them done and ready to go!

Magical Birthday
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_779

Hello to you all!  Thanks for stopping by today!

I have this sweet little Princesses Faerie die that I am using and I have to say I think she adorable!

I have a few granddaughters that will love this card not to mention, quite a few grand nieces.

On the wings I used a combination of chunky and fine white glitter .

I ran some white card stock through my Xyron tape runner  so I wouldn't  have to use any glue for the glitter or the layers. 

Since it's a delicate piece I layered it twice, the Xyron makes that so easy ! The top layer has  a sticky top so the glitter 

worked perfectly and covered nicley!

I adhered the body to some watercolor card stock , used fun foam behind the panel, then stamped my image.

I decided last minute to tilt my panel just a bit, making sure it would still stand on its own and also fit in the envelop.

I stamped my sentiment soft stone ink, I wanted the Faerie to be front and center!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Scribble Flower Thanks
by Sue McRae

Hello crafty friends! Sue here with a clean and simple card for you.

P1350200c

I started off by making my background panel using water colour paper and very loosely painting it with blues and purples. While this dried I die cut the Scribble Flower Circle from blue metallic card stock.

Next I created the frame for the card by die cutting the Thanks Corner from white card stock.

P1350225c

When the background panel was dry I die cut the Atessa Collage from the bottom right corner. I didn't want all the little pieces from the die cut to come out so I used an old warpy cutting plate with my Big Shot and this prevented the die from cutting all the way through the paper, leaving all the bits in place and easy to adhere to the card base.

P1350215c

I attached the thanks frame next and then the wreath but felt like it needed something else so I die cut a few flowers from silver glitter paper from the Daisy Cluster and adhered them around the wreath.

P1350222c

To finished off I added a few silver embellishments.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

hello

Hi there! It's Mona here today to share a mixed media style card featuring several products from the New Spring 2017 Release along with other fun Poppystamps products. To create the background, I randomly spritzed die cut memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers with various color sprays. The largerBox Stitched Rectangle features two Ring a Ding Corners layered on top. Once the background was completed, I embellished with a die cut Garden Lantern which I added a coating of embossing enamel that added a little shimmer and shine:

I embellished the lantern with a double layered Stitched Butterfly Trio then finished with a Scribble Hello sentiment:

Blooming Thanks
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a water coloured floral thank you card.

P1310266c

I started off by using my Luxe Background die to emboss a piece of water color paper (just use your embossing rubber mat betweem the clear plates so the die doesn't cut through the paper) and then water coloured with some paints in different shades of blue.

I die cut the Hampstead Corner (twice, because I only used the flowers) and the Monterey Vine out of water colour paper and used paints on these as well.  

P1310269c

The sentiment was stamped in black onto vellum, clear embossed and wrapped around the corner of the background piece.

P1310262c

I finished by adding some gems and a bit of Wink of Stella to the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Watercolor Bellina Corner Thank You
by Jeanne Jachna

 Butterfly-Corner-One

I love butterflies! Have you checked out all the latest additions to the Poppystamps catalog?  There are a three dies that feature the "Bellina" style  butterflies - they're loopy and  feminine.  You can see all the Poppystamps butterfly dies here.
Butterfly-Corner-Five
Corner dies are really easy to work with and a great addition to your die collection.  I made this card by painting two watercolor panels with Peerless Watercolors.  I used the same colors on both panels.  
Butterfly-Corner-Two
Next I cut the Bellina Butterfly corner from a piece of white cardstock, and adhered it to one of the watercolor panels.  Inlay the die by adhering it inside the open window.
Butterfly-Corner-Three
Stamp a simple sentiment on the panel like this one from "Hope and Thanks".  I trimed the panel down and glued some craft foam to the back before attaching it to my card base.  This adds a little dimension.  Inexpensive sheets of craft foam are great for large panels because you can trim them to size to support the entire panel.
 Butterfly-Corner-Four
Remember the second watercolor panel we painted?  Die cut the Bellina Corner one more time from the watercolor paper.  Remove the die cut butterflies and attach them to your cover panel.  Everything matches perfectly!   The Bellina Corner is great because it's like two dies in one - the corner, and three extra butterflies you can use on other projects!
Butterfly-Corner
There are lots of fun looks you can create with this same technique - change the colors or if you don't like to watercolor, consider a glitter background or some pattern paper!  Have fun and happy creating!
