Happy Easter!
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Morning-Five
I hope you're having a fabulous Easter day and that the sun is shining wherever you are!    I love creating scenes with my Poppystamps dies and today I thought a beautiful Spring Day was just the ticket! 
Easter-Morning-Two
I started by cutting the Happy Easter Curve from white card stock.  Next I cut it again from green card stock.  I inserted the white die into the negative cut on the green and adhered it to a panel of sky blue card stock.  I added some Stitched Cloudlines for the sky and a sun made from Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Circle Layers.
Easter-Morning-Four
To add some depth and dimension I added a second grassy hill by cutting the Dotted Curve cut from a light green card stock.
 Easter-Morning-Three
The Serene Rabbit is inspecting some Stitched Eggs.  I also added a Elegant Easter Lilly.  I cut the stalk from lime green cardstock, and then cut the flowers from white.  I inked the edges of the flowers with yellow and slightly offset them  when I attached them to the stem to give a fuller appearance. 
Easter-Morning-Six
A Butterfly Sprinkle of  flying friends in yellow and pink are fun and colorful.  
Easter-Morning
It looks like a beautiful day doesn't it?    I made one more really clean and simple Easter card today!
Happy-Easter-Watercolor-Str
For this easy card I water colored stripes of paint - colors you might use to dye your eggs!  and then added the Happy Easter sentiment in gold over the top!

HAPPY EASTER card
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5372

Hi Everyone.

Today I have for you very easy and simple project. 

I love kraft and eco paper. Each design with kraft paper is elegant. You do not need many add-ons and colors to get a niceeffect.

In my projects I often use kraft paper with white additives. Many of my wedding cards have such a style. This time I decided to make an Easter card in a similar way.

As you can see - under the  Squiggle Egg dies, I glued hand-cut egg shape, made of white paper. Corners of the card are decorated with white paper cutouts (Burnished Corner).

Hi there! It's Mona here today to share a couple of Easter projects featuring a variety of products from the New Spring 2017 Release along with other fun Poppystamps products. 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. I created a meadow scene featuring die cut Preppy Flowers along with a Serene Rabbit.

Happy Easter
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing an Easter card that I made for my dear, sweet neighbor.  Enjoy!

Poppystamps Happy Easter - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by creating a puddle of various shades of blue watercolor on a 3-1/2" x 4-7/8" watercolor paper rectangle.  I then splattered it with those same shades of blue watercolor, as well as pink, yellow, green, and purple watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once it was dry, I framed it with Perfect Plum cardstock and white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, whose ends were tied in a little bow just for a dash of extra texture.

4.10.17 061

The Happy Easter Curve title, too, was die-cut from Perfect Plum cardstock; adhered near the top of the design; given a bit of shine with Glossy Accents; and grounded with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, "from all of us", which comes from our Christmas Friends stamp set.

  4.10.17 054

I then made the row of critters by die-cutting, from left to right, the Tiny Frog from Pear Pizzazz cardstock; Bunny Hop from textured, white cardstock; Simple Sheep from Very Vanilla and kraft cardstocks; the Purrfect Holidays chick from a soft yellow cardstock; and the single Young Fox Pair from an apricot cardstock.  Each one, with the exception of the bunny itself, was given a set of Bunny Ears, which were die-cut from Bashful Blue or Pink Pirouette cardstock, and popped up with foam tape.  The entire panel, too, was popped up with foam tape in the center of the white, cardstock, card face to complete the look.

 Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a terrific Tuesday, y'all, and a blessed Easter season!

Three Easter cards
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5353

Today we have three Easter cards which main motive are animals.

First one with two lovely sheeps is made with Ring a Ding corner die. Not typical arrangement but I think it looks good.

Another one with two rabbits made of Serene Rabbit die - this is one I kept simple with a grass-like motive at the bottom made by Tailored Stitches.

Last one which I like a most is the one with those sweet chicks. Hope you enjoy that!

Happy Easter
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Good Morning Poppystamps fans! I have  an Easter card for you today.

Final poppy

I did an inlay technique here. I used three colors of cardstock.

IMG_2778

Use a post it note to hold the die in place, I ran my background colors with the white to get my positioning of my papers correct.

You will need to save all the tiny pieces to insert back into the letters as shown in the photo below.

You'll notice I used green to match the grass below and blue on top. There are several variations of this technique. It can be tedious but well worth the end result. I created my own grass tufts using fringe scissors and a strip of cardstock. Just tucking the eggs into the grass. A couple hopping bunnies to tie into the theme.

 I added Stickles with a paint brush and a little grey copic marker to the clouds. I hope you enjoy my Easter Card.

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???
