This is what the back side of the card looks like. Simply add some foam tape to the back then place on the panel of your choice. 

I cut two Bravern Branches, cut them apart, then placed them where I wanted to add leaves to the Swaying Birch die.

  Simple, right!  Last minute I did change the design a bit by placing the skyline die more to the right of the card so that I had more room for the leaves on the tree. 

Thank you for the visit today!

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!

Butterflies in Flight
By Marybeth Lopez

Hi there , Marybeth here today ! I hope you enjoyed the new products and Mini Blog Blitz!

Today I used the new Stitched Butterfly Trio , Memory box Stitched Hexagon Layers ( love those!) and Into the Words clear stamp set.

Fullsizeoutput_3f9 Watermark copy

Im sharing a card with a design I made a few years ago, its been a while since I curled any blooms or butterflies.

Very simple as you have seen some of the other Design Team members already do this technique. Simply roll the die cut with any small item , I used a crochet hook.

 

Fullsizeoutput_3fd

I used a brush to blend some inks onto a piece of card stock . I think the brush has a softer look and I have more control of the even-ness!

Fullsizeoutput_3fc

I used two colors of ink to give e a bit more detail to each die cut. After the butterflies were cut out I brushed along the sides to cover up the white and give a bit more color to each edge.

 Thank you for stoping by today ! I hope you are having a blessed weekend!

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.

Poppy Floral Stem Collection - JinnyNewlin
 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.

  2.8.17 017

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.

2.8.17 022
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.

PLS Single Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin
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!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful rest of your week! Jinny Floral Signature copy

Happy Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today; and I'm so excited to be back, sharing a project, showcasing more of what our January 2017 Release has to offer!  This one made it to my brother-in-law, for his birthday, late last week.  Enjoy!

Poppy Happy Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in various shades of green.  I then speckled it with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before using the Happy Birthday Tag craft die to remove its center.  I then went back and filled in a portion of that center with a separate, Basic Black, cardstock, Happy Birthday Tag die cut.  The entire piece was then backed with a sheet of clear cardstock to create the window, which was filled in with a variety of sequins, seed beads, and a number of cardstock, Tiny Feathers die cuts.

1.9.17 084

For the back of the window, I used a plain piece of white cardstock so as not to compete with everything else that was already going on.  Black-threaded, straight, machine stitching secures all the layers together.  The entire piece was then popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape and dressed up with a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, embellished with a black, gingham bow, as well as a black button, laced with teal twine, tied in a bow.

1.9.17 077

Thanks, as always, for humbling us with a visit!  Have a blessed last day of January, and we'll see you next month!  Hugs!

Playful Deer Collage - Blog Blitz Begins!!
by Jeanne Jachna

  True-Love-Four

Thanks for stopping by!  You picked a great day for a visit!  We're beginning our BLOG BLITZ today!  This is an event where we show you projects made with the new release and gift you with a prize on every single post!   This week we're showing Valentines!   There's lots of heart dies to share, and a stamp set too! 
True-Love-Two
Who says Valentines need to be pink or red?  I make cards for friends and family, and tags for treats for school and work.  I don't always want a card that is overly feminine or too heavy on the lovey dovey! LOL  I made this card for my DH.  We love to go walking together so these Playful Deer were just the ticket.
True-Love-One
I topped the PLAYFUL DEER COLLAGE with the FOLIUM FRAME.  The different shades of green card stock add to the look of foliage - allowing us to peek in at this private woodland scene.  Behind the  PLAYFUL DEER COLLAGE is a PEERELESS WATERCOLOR panel.
True-Love-Five
I added a few TINY BIRDS AND BRANCHES for more detail in framing the scene.  The white hearts are cut from the new HEART SCREEN.  You'll want to save all the little heart cut outs when you use the outline image.
True-Love-Three
The sentiment is from a new stamp set called GRATEFUL HEARTS .  YES!  It does have a coordinating die cut set! 
True-Love
OK.. now for the part you've been waiting for!  The prize for today's post is the PLAYFUL DEER COLLAGE.

 1696 Playful Deer Collage craft 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. 

The top layer of the flower is embossed with the extra layer that comes with the die.

I added fun foam under my top green panel.

Hello and Happy December to you all! My hope for you is that you will time and try to enjoy it :)

I used this beautiful wreath from Poppystamps cut it twice then layered it on the Stitched Hexagons.

The white panel layer is watercolor paper from the craft store.

I couldn’t resist adding these two darling Playful Fawns, I cut them once with golden glitter paper from

the craft store then cut one more time using the thin cardboard that came with the paper. 

The white layer has a few leaves that I cut off so it would not hide the darling fawns.

 I love using the  Stitched Hexagon Layers from Memory box , they fit just right on the card! I hope you like it!

I would like to wish my dad a Happy 80th  Birthday! Happy Birthday Dad!

God bless you ! I hope your December is off to a great start!

He's Coming to Town...
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog! Lezlye here today with a Christmas Card. This is one of those idea's that just kept

coming forward with idea's.

Poppynorthpoledeer

I decided to do the card in white and gold and just a few touches of red. I had an open spot at the bottom and decided to add the hand drawn note pole sign. The sleigh was assembled and cut in half. I tucked it behind to make it appear as it was flying off. I hand colored twine with copies to make it look like leather.

Northpoledeer2

I used quite a few dies on this card, but I really like the way it came together. I hope you do too!
