To create this card, I made a layered Powell Butterfly which I then embellished with a layered metallic Stitched Bloom using the smallest of the three Stitched Bloom Trio dies. I added trimming that was made using two of the three pretty Eyelet Stitches dies.  I completed the card with a metallic Scribble Hello sentiment.

Thank You for Your Kindness
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a collection of thank yous I sent out for my birthday gifts last month.  Kansas seems to have completely forgotten how to produce snow, and winter really isn't much fun without such.  So, I'm willing the warm weather back with these springtime beauties.

 Let's take a look up close and personal.  Shall we?

  Poppy Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by die-cutting the Floral Stem Collage craft die from Coastal Cabana cardstock and its flower, in three layers thick, from Ballet Slippers cardstock.  I then anchored the center of the layered bloom with a soft yellow button, laced with white string; and embellished the petals with a sequin butterfly.

The "thank you for your kindness" sentiment was white-embossed, vertically, along the right edge of the die-cut window, which was backed with clear cardstock.

I then machine stitched a white-threaded, double, straight-stitch frame around the prepped piece's outside edges, before framing its backside with foam tape to house the shaker elements.  I couldn't decide whether I wanted to do a double or single, machine-stitched frame; and while the stitching does help anchor the clear cardstock to the backside of the window, a single layer is sufficient.  So, a few of the cards have only a single layer of such.

A piece of white cardstock was then adhered to the kraft, cardstock, card face, before adhering the window in place over a healthy dose of heart, Sparkling Clear, and Seaspray sequins, as well as silver seed beads and those sweet, little, white, cardstock, Bunny Hop die cuts.  I just love how cute these tiny die cuts look in a shaker!

Stitched Bloom Trio
by Irena Kowalczyk

Hello, Poppystamps friends.
One of the newest die sets is the Stitched Bloom Trio.
I used them in today's card.

I made a short tutorial on how to make a flower.
I used a foam Foamiran and Stitched Bloom Trio dies.

3. The foam acts on the hot iron, causes that it becomes easy formatting.
4. When flowers begin to shrink a little, fingers need to be turn.
5. Then gently to form flowers.
6. Put all that hot glue.

When the flower ready, time for the creation of the card.

Leaves from the collection "Delicate Peony clear stamp" Birch Press Design, stamping and added powder embossing.
Then I cut out.

Flickering Butterfly
by Sue McRae

Hello all, Sue here with a post featuring the new Flickering Butterfly Collage die. There are so many possibilities with this die!

P1340870c

I started off by colouring a piece of glossy card stock with alcohol inks in purples and blues. I die cut a square using the Pinpoint Square Layers, placed the butterfly die in the centre and sent it through my Big Shot. Then I flicked some gold paint on the butterfly panel.

P1340839c

The alcohol ink piece was adhered behind the butterfly for all the pretty colours to peek through and I adhered this to the card base.

P1340883c

I die cut the Blooming Dotted Border from purple card stock, stamped the sentiment and added a strip of glitter tape.

P1340880c

I added a few black pearls to finish off the card.

Today I'm giving away the Flickering Butterfly Collage die.

I cut down the Heart Pattern Plate , then layered the Floral Stem Collage on top twice, I have one slightly to the side of the first one.

Winter card
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5000

Hi Poppystamps fans :)

Christmas time is coming.  

I am sharing a  Christmas card today. 

 

There are three layers of the paper: white, green (2-3mm smaller) and white again. This time it was about 5mm difference to make that nice green frame around.

I used star mask and pearl paste to make those tiny white-glitter stars on the background.

Silver  glitter paper was used for that circle in the centre. It was decorated with Wintergreen Border die.

There are actually three cut outs but I cut out the bottom part of each and then they were stuck underneath the circle.

Two poinsettias are added on the border of the circle and then I added Country House die together with some turquoise stars.

Birthday Frame
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone! Today I have a quick and colourful card for you.

P1330854c

For the Botanica Frame I took a piece of water colour paper and created a rainbow across it with paints, die cut the frame from it and adhered it to the white card base.

I coloured glossy card stock with alcohol inks to use for the sentiment and flower.

P1330874c

I used the medium and small dies from the Stitched Poinsettia Trio to make the flower and die cut the medium shape from vellum to add a third layer to the flower.

P1330869c

The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Celebration Frame. I just snipped the sentiment from the frame to use on its own. That is one way you get more mileage out of your dies.

P1330886c

To finish the card I added a white enamel dot to the flower and scribbled over the Happy Birthday with a shimmer pen.

Happy crafting!

Hello Poppystamps friends.
Irena here today with a monochromatic card!

I used some new dies and I combined with the old.
First I cut out love 'Distressed Benson Corner', then
Poinsettia flower that looks good also in the summer projects.
