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!

Embossing background- step by step
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5520

Hi Everyone!

Today I want to show you how to create in a simple and fast way an elegant background.

We need:

  • Memory Box stencils
  • die cutting machine, e.g. Big Shot
  • embossing mat

What we need to do, step by step:

  1. We cut paper the same size as our stencil.
  2. We make layers: mat, paper, stencil.
  3. We put everything  into the machine. We turn everything and pull out and now we have a beautiful background.
  4. We make a project using our new background. Recently I did delicate Easter card.

As you can see, even without embossing folders, we can do embossing background.

Stitched Easter Greetings
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Bunny-Four

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great weekend!  There's lots of new Easter dies in the store and I really wanted to make one with the Easter Egg Party dies.  I wanted to show all the different dies in the set (there are 5 patterned eggs) and came up with this fun quilted  card.
Easter-Bunny-One
Don't you just love all that pretty stitching in the background?  This one was a little tricky so let me show you how it was made!  First a little measuring!  I decided to make four rows with four eggs in each row.
Easter-Bunny-Five
I cut a white card stock panel slightly smaller than that of an A2 size card - 4" x 5 1/4".  Next I divided the panel into squares.  You can see where I scored the rows.   The scoring was really helpful in aligning the dies for the stitches.  I could easily see where to place the border dies (I used two different dies from the Delicate Stitches Set.    I have a magnetic plate on my cutting machine that held the dies in place nicely.
Easter-Bunny-Six
When the border dies were complete I added the Happy Easter Curve die and trimmed off the excess so the edges were even with the card panel.
Easter-Bunny-Seven
I wanted to point out that I lost a tiny bit of paper where the two sets of stitches cut over each other.    Mistakes happen and to me quite often!! LOL!!   No worries - you can cover up any imperfections with embellishments like gems or sequins.  I covered this up with a little bunny and I don't think anyone would notice if I didn't share it!
Easter-Bunny-Three
I double cut all the eggs - once from gold foil and once from colored card stock.   I actually inlaid all the eggs.  If this isn't "you're thing" you can use the Stitched Egg Medley dies to place behind the die cut eggs in the Easter Egg Party.  I don't mind paper piecing - it's a labor of love and I really like how it looks when they're all done - nice and smooth! 
Easter-Bunny-Two
I put a small piece of washi on the back of the die cut and then inserted the pieces - that little bit of washi held each piece in place.  When I adhered them on the card with liquid glue they were completely secure.
Easter-Bunny-Four
Here's where my little "boo boo" was.. before you saw it.. now you don't.  That little rabbit from Bunny Hop looks like he was meant to be there doesn't he? You can see from the sprinkle of sequins that it would be easy to hide other mistakes.
Easter-Bunny-Eight
Isn't all that gold just yummy?
Easter-Bunny
I love the quilted look of the design... AND I got all the different eggs on to one card!  LOL!! What will you make today???

Serene Rabbit
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4638-wm

Hello Everyone!

This warm weather has me thinking about all things green and springy! So I created this adorable little bunny card that has a wonderful open and embossed texture and feel. Take a look!

IMG_4635-wm

I used an old favorite, the Kaysen Oval Frame, along with brand new dies from our latest release, Serene Rabbit, Easter Egg Party, and Bellen Corner.  I also added a little "secret technique" with this cheerful card. By adding die cuts, such as embellished corners or curly cues the same color as the background, you can create an "embossed" pattern as simple or as detailed as you'd like. For this card, I just used the Bellen Corner to add a little fancy texture in the corners. It's another great way to get your dies to work for you, cutting, stenciling, and "embossing."

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. :)

Happy Easter
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone. Today I have a cute Easter window card to share with you.

P1300880c

I began by stamping my background with the tulip image from the Easter Excitement stamp set in pink and yellow. To cut out the window I used the Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers die and for the frame I nested two of the dies together on some glitter paper.

P1300933c

On the inside of the card is the happy bunny holding its basket of eggs. The basket was cut from wood paper and the eggs and grass are from glitter paper. To complete the scene I added a couple of fluffy clouds die cut from wood grain paper.

P1300861c

I finished off with the Easter sentiment curved around the frame.

There's lots of great stamps and dies in the Easter Excitement sets and I think they're great all year long, not just for Easter.

It's Easter, for Peep's
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Easterpeepbunny

Good Morning! Starting out the day with a Happy Easter card! This was so fun to put together, combining the To All My Peeps stamps and dies with some of Poppystamps  older dies. I had envisioned what I wanted my card to look like before I stamped my images. I Knew I wanted to create a little scene. I Knew I wanted sun rays but I didn't have a die or a stamp from Poppy. Hmm What's a girl to do?

Eaterpeeps2

I tried several different experiments before finding one that worked for me. I used a ruler and post it notes to make spaces for me to add watercolor using ranger distress inks. I wanted it very vibrant so I layered the color on. Once it was dry I applied light strands of glossy accents to create my sunrise. All my other images are watercolored using  my Sakura KOI watercolors.I also added the glossy accents to my eggs. Glitter to the chick. I used my grey N1 copic marker to give the bunny some grounding. Glitter and enamel dots added for final touches. I wished I had some yellow feather's!

Frilly Bunny
by Ilona Zbieg

Hello :) 

Ilona here today.

Today I want to show you an Easter card. Since last year Frilly Bunny is my favorite Poppystamps dies for Easter  .

I used  watercolors inks [Ecoline]  to make a simple background.  Background in green and turquoise color is fresh and spring.

After I cut a bunny, I decorate it with glitter.
