Rainbow Inked Die Cuts on Inked Background
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca Keppel Poppystamps Blooming Border Distress Oxide Ink1

Rainbows are such bright, happy ways to combine colors! For this card, I used a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks to create a stenciled background. Then, I die cut the Blooming Border die on adhesive backed cardstock and inked those flowers and leaves with the same colors and adhered them on top of the rainbow background.

This is such an easy way to create a layered rainbow card panel. Check out the video to see how to put this colorful card together.

Floral Dotted Border
by Jeanne Jachna

Floral-Dotted-Border-Five
I hope you're having a great day!  I'm looking for Spring in my little part of the world, and so far it looks like it's alluding me.  On dreary days I like to craft and make a bright spot of my own.  Here's what I made today!
Floral-Dotted-Border-Three
I should have checked the availability of all the dies I worked with today before I started crafting.  My apologies but the Blooming Poppy is no longer available.  Maybe you already have it? What's unique about my card today is really the background - and I think it would make a beautiful setting for any floral die you might have.
Floral-Dotted-Border
I started by creating an ombre red background.  The typical card I make is an A2 size (4.25 x 5.5").  I usually cut the cover panel slightly smaller than the card base leaving about an quarter inch border around the card (finished size 4 x 5.25").  I chose 5 different shades for my background.  I made each strip a little over an inch wide.  I taped the different colored panels together and then trimmed them to fit my card base. 

Floral-Dotted-Border-One
Next I cut a panel of white card stock 4 x 6"  Using a ruler I lined up the floral dotted border die as close to the edge as possible, taped the die in place and cut the border on both edges of the paper.  It's very important to use a ruler because the flowers on the outside edge of the die are uneven.  line up the die from the inside (where the dots are) Because the panel is longer than the actual die it stays together until you're ready to trim it down for the card cover. 
Floral-Dotted-Border-Four
All that's left is to embellish the center panel with your favorite image.  I matched the colors of the blooms with the colors included in the ombre background.   I love the color peeking through the open designed flowers.  They look like lace!
Floral-Dotted-Border-Two
This is a great way to stretch your border dies!  I hope you'll give this technique a try!

For my post today I am featuring the Big Circle Border Layer die; I think it adds a nice touch to my panel and allows the background color to show.

It's Blog Blitz time, and we're featuring some new Poppy stamp and dies for Spring!

DSC_0020

This Easter card uses 3 new die sets and a fun new stampset called, Easter Chicks.

DSC_0015

I used the Blooming Border die to create an emboss on the left side of my A2 sized base card.

DSC_0017

Lots of sweet flowers and leaves cut from Blooming Border, from shimmer cardstock, for a shaker card.

I glued some of the flowers on the outside of my shaker too.

Hope you're inspired to create some Spring cards, and enjoy the Blog Blitz as we give you some more ideas!

by Marybeth Lopez

Download-7

Hi there and welcome to: Day Two of the Poppystamps Blog Blitz! The design team will be sharing some of the new spring products from Poppystamps .

You will have a chance to win each day by leaving a comment . Today I will be giving away the :Double Stitch Tags Die Set  to one random commenter.

IMG_2281

The leaves and some of the flowers are watercolored using the Peerless Watercolor Sheet Pack from Birch Press Design, then cut using Poppystamps New Blooming Border. 

IMG_2286

 To make the small tag for the sentiment I cut down the smallest tag in the set as pictured above.

IMG_2284

I wanted the die cut flowers and sequins to shake freely so I have two lavers : One with fun foam and the other double sided foam tape. I trimmed the outer edge of the fun foam to make sure it wouldn't show.  I also added Poppy Sequin mix of :Fairy Sparkle.

IMG_2419 

 These are the dies that I used pictured above , the sentiment is from the new and adorable Stamp Set :Easter Chicks from Poppystamps.

Fullsizeoutput_118c

Having the two layers (to raise the acrylic layer) was definitely a good idea, happy I remade my shaker tag. I am sharing a few photos to show the movement of how nicely the move.

Watercolor Rose Frame
by Jeanne Jachna

Rose-Frame-Watercolor-Four
Jeanne here today!  I recently saw a video made by Dave Brethauer the owner of Poppystamps called "Threaded Cards" (you can see it here).  He used the same die I used today and added watercolor inlay to the Rose Frame die cut.   Inlaid dies are smooth and expensive looking, but they're also very time consuming.  The video got me thinking of other ways to add color to dies without all the extra effort. 
Rose-Frame-Watercolor
I tried a few different techniques.  First I embossed a piece of watercolor paper with the Rose Frame die.  This created a panel that had clearly marked die outlines but it wasn't smooth.  When I water colored it I found the water didn't absorb evenly into the paper and when my project was dry I found lots of white spots where paint never touched.   For my second attempt I die cut the Rose Frame with a piece of water color paper.  Because the  paper is thicker than regular card stock, and this die is very intricate it didn't cut out the die.   This normally would make me a little upset - I'd toss the panel and cut it again with a metal shim to get a clean cut, but for this project the sticky pieces were just what I was looking for.   NOTE:  Another way to keep your die pieces from cutting all the way through is to add a piece of packaging tape to the back of your card stock before die cutting.    The die won't cut through the packaging tape.  I use Scotch 3M Packaging Tape.
Rose-Frame-Watercolor-One
The die cut stays completely smooth allowing the water to absorb evenly and I the die cut image is easy to see.  This technique is wonderful because you don't have to be absolutely precise about your coloring - and you can color the different areas quickly.
Rose-Frame-Watercolor-Five
I topped the watercolor panel with a clean white Rose Frame die cut and a Pointed Square Frame.
Rose-Frame-Watercolor-Three
The Pointed Square Frame gives the piece a finished look.  The final dimensions on this card are 4.5" square.
Rose-Frame-Watercolor-Two
This technique gives you the clean look of inlay without all the little pieces to insert.  
 Rose-Frame-Watercolor-Six

The finished card reminds me of colorful leaded glass.  I hope you give it a try some time!

 I cut my die using watercolor cardstock , then placed a piece of patterned paper( big enough to cover the openings) underneath. Then I cut again using yellow and green carrdstock. I layered the center dots on the bloom twice, then added the green for the leaves.  I placed a piece of fun foam under the front panel.  Then stamped the sentiment using Sending Scribbles clear stamp from Poppystamps . I added a bit of shimmer with a shimmer pin on the leaves and center dots.
