Summer Release Blog Blitz Begins!
byJeanne Jachna

Watercolor-Heron-Three
What a great day for a visit!  We're showing the newest Poppystamps release and celebrating with a Blog Blitz!    There are 16 new dies to show that we think you're going to love!  Not familiar with our Blog Blitz?  Well .. it's a special time we set aside to show the new products.. and the best part?  You'll find a prize on every post during the blitz! 
Watercolor-Heron-One
I made an Asian inspired card today featuring two of the new dies - the Graceful Heron and the Stitched Rectangle Frames set.   I was going for an Asian look on my card using gold accents. 
Watercolor-Heron-Two
I started with a watercolor background in red, orange and yellow.  I added Stitchwork Rectangle Frames in gold and white around the outside of the card base.  The largest frame in the set is the perfect size for an A2 Card (4.25 x 5.5").  I didn't cut my dies apart so the spaces in between the dies are perfectly spaced and are nice to use as well.   I cut a whole sheet of frames at a time and kept the extras for another project.  You can see the pretty detail on the Stitchwork Frames here.  It consists of stitches and die cut tear drops that run around the entire frame.  The white in between the two gold frames is the piece left over when you cut the attached dies. 
Watercolor-Heron-Four
I triple cut the heron stacking the dies to make a thick chipboard piece to adhere to the watercolor background.  The detail on the heron is gorgeous and easy to see on the gold foil! 
Watercolor-Heron

And now the part you've been waiting for.. the prize on this post is the Stitchwork Rectangle Frames Die Set.

Happy Birthday!
by Jennifer Svare

 

Cupcake1A
Hello!  I'm so happy to be here today, and excited to share a birthday card inspired by chocolate!  This card is not only fun and easy to make, but it also works for anyone and any age.  I'll be making a lot of these to give with cupcake gifts!

It's a tri-fold card, and each panel has a fun birthday element.

Cupcake2

The Scribble Square (cut out of dark chocolate brown and embossed with clear for a shiny finish) reminded me of when chefs create those cool designs on desserts out of chocolate.  This was the background to the Double Stitch Scallop that frames the Scribble Happy Birthday.  The words are cut in white to resemble frosting words on a cake.  I wanted the front to look very chocolatey, and I found that using different shades of brown really helped to create the look I was after.

Cupcake3

The card opens up to a 3/4 panel with candles.  I didn't have any candle dies, but the Picket Fence worked perfect!  I'll show how I made these in the video below.  

Cupcake5

The Ric Rac Stitches border die made a fun border to carry the chocolate cake/frosting theme along the top of the panel, and also gave it a nicely finished look.  I love the stitches.

Cupcake6

The candle panel opens up to a white panel and the adorable Frosted Cake completes the theme, along with some more scribbles.  Plenty of room for writing or a gift card.

Cupcake9

A lot of different dies are used for this card, and many different dies could be used in place of the dies I used.  I hope you are inspired to go through your stash and see which dies would make cute candles, frosting, and culinary masterpieces!    

Here's a video highlighting the process of making this card:

Fluttering Butterflies
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_135f

Hello, Marybeth here today.  Happy weekend to you all ! Already the 5th of May! 

I have a simple shaker card today using some old and new products from Poppystamps .

Download-1

I used an old shaker window I had in my stash from a few years ago, all you do is peal and stick to your card . Now with the Double Stitch Circle Frame its so easy , no cutting on front of card needed. All you do is add it on top of your card then glue the frame over that.

IMG_3427

I placed the inside of my frame on the center of my panel... as a mask then began to stamp my images where I wanted.

I used Sending Scribbles Stamp set from Poppystamps to stamp the leaves  and Stitched Fluttering Butterflies for the inside.

IMG_3407

Once I removed the circle mask , I was left with an empty center to fill as I wished.

IMG_3412

Photo below shows the shaker before the frame was glued to the panel.

IMG_3413

The Double Stitch Circle Frames perfectly finished this easy shaker.

Before I cut the butterflies I sponged my white cardstock with  with pretty inks . Once cut I added a bit more shading where I wanted.

Thank you so much for the visit today, I hope I encouraged you to do some shopping today 😊

Have a wonderful day!

Who You Gonna Call?
byJeanne Jachna

  Who-You-Gonna-Call-Three

I hope you're having a great day!  I'm playing with the new Rotary Phone die today!  I think this die is so cute.  It cuts as three pieces the phone base, cord, and hand set. You can trim the cord to make it shorter or keep it long to have the hand set in different positions. Here's what I made!
Who-You-Gonna-Call
I was thinking about the three phones and how to connect them - like a conversation.  I decided to adhere them on different size circles and then connect the circles by over lapping them.  I used three shades of pink card stock and silver glitter paper - changing the combinations so no two circles are exactly alike. 
Who-You-Gonna-Call-One
I stamped the sentiment from "Call Me" on a white card stock panel.  Then I arranged the rings on the card stock.  When I was happy with the placement I adhered them with liquid glue in a needle tip applicator.  The wet glue gave me some time to move things into place before they were stuck for good!   I tucked the circle centers under the ring frames. 
Who-You-Gonna-Call-Two
I used the Pointed Circle Frames and Double Stitch Circle Frames to add some interest.  The frames are two different widths  - so while they don't match, they still work because they're both circles.  The blingy rhinestones repeat the circle pattern.
Who-You-Gonna-Call-Four

I love the playful look of the finished card!  I hope you find some time to make today! Jeanne Floral Signature copy

Rose Stem with Fluttering Butterflies
by Marybeth Lopez

Download-2

Hello to you all! Happy almost weekend, can you believe.... May will be here in a few minutes:)

Download

For my card today I used the: Beautiful Rose Stem and Stitched Fluttering Butterflies dies from Poppystamps.  I cut the rose panel out of firm vellum , glued the the main body to fun foam. After placing all the pieces back in I decided to remove and color softly with Zig Real Brush Pens.

IMG_3072

 Below shows the pieces being placed back in  without glue and non colored. After I colored them I added tiny dots of glue and placed back in the same way.

It was like making a puzzle but already knowing where each peace was  going to go. Very relaxing!

IMG_3044

The butterflies are cut from firm vellum as well then colored the same way with Zig pens.

I may add a sentiment to the front of this card but liked it as is for now... I can always add later. Thank you for the visit and I hope you give the look and die a try..... very enjoyable crafting.

Row Your Boat
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5261-wm

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to be sharing this card I created with the brand new Seaside Dock and the Wooden Rowboat! WhenI first saw this adorable combination, I thought about all of the great metaphors a little boat and a dock could create. I really played around with these two images a lot too, in order to get it just right. What messages do YOU see with this tiny boat? Is it off to a new adventure, or sailing in to a safe shore? Is it a reminder to a friend that you are always near, or an encouragement to someone whose journey has just begun, or that our dreams are still just out of reach? Maybe it's just a little boat on a summer's day!

IMG_5257-wm

The Seaside Dock and the Wooden Rowboat were cut with basic cardstock, and then placed inside the Pointed Rectangle Frame. I added two tiny waves from the Gentle Wave Collage and a few sparkling sequins and voila!
