Happy Dad's Day
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing the card I stretched my stash to make my dad for Father's Day.

Poppy Happy Dad's Day - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by adding green and blue, watercolor puddles to a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as teal watercolor, before smearing Tumbled Glass Distress Ink through the Memory Box Winter Snowflakes stencil and splattering once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  The Stitched Tunnel Tag was then die-cut, from the prepped piece, just left of vertical center and set aside for later before matting that same original, watercolor piece with white cardstock and anchoring it, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, to the Brocade Blue, cardstock, card face.  I then used the "happy valentine's day" stamp, from our Grateful Heart stamp set, to make the "happy DAD's day" sentiment by replacing the "valentine" with die-cut, from teal cardstock, using our Happy Birthday Bold die, letters to spell "DAD".

The Stitched Tunnel Tag, that had been set aside previously, was then laced with Baker's Twine...

backed with a bit of cheesecloth for texture; and popped up, with foam tape, in the same, negative space from which it was initially die-cut.

It was also topped with a stamped in Jet Black ink, watercolored, and hand-cut Be Mine Penguin, dressed in a top hat and tie and popped up with more foam tape, in addition to a stamped, in Cotton White StazOn ink, on clear cardstock and die-cut Grateful Heart.  The stamped Grateful Heart was backed with another die-cut, clear, cardstock Grateful Heart, before they were stitched together; but before finishing off the last few white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, I stuffed the formed, heart pocket with Raspberry, Seaspray, Crystal, and silver star sequins, as well as silver seed beads, to complete the look.

Thanks, as always, for visiting us!  Be blessed!

Grateful Heart
By Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! Oh my gosh I did it again a card with a heart on it.

Poppyheartrainbow

I love simple cards to convey a powerful message. I created a rainbow background using a sponge blending technique and then adding versamark and a glittered embossing powder.

 

 

Then the top panel with the the die cut is mounted with foam dots to raise the panel for a dimension effect. I also stamped and mounted my sentiment.

Have a fabulous day.

Be Mine
by Jinny Newlin

Hey, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my hubby's Valentine.

Poppy Be Mine - JinnyNewlin

I started his card by adding a little interest to the Pool Party, cardstock, card face, which had its bottom corners rounded, by rubbing Pumice Stone and Broken China Distress Inks through lattice and heart stencils respectively.  I then popped a white, cardstock Stitched Tunnel Tag up, just right of vertical center, with foam tape.  The tag itself was topped with a piece of watercolor paper, watercolored in shades of blue and speckled with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  The watercolor piece was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with a trio of hearts and topped with the die-cut, black, cardstock Playful Deer Collage, which I white-embossed with a "be mine" sentiment.  I have no idea why the black is photographing as though it is speckled with white spots.  I promise they aren't there in real life.  Grrr!  So frustrating!  Maybe I'd better take a closer look at my camera lens.  It's been keeping pretty busy lately.  Anyway, both the stamped hearts and sentiment came from our playful, Be Mine Penguins stamp set.

The completed tag was then laced with a length of hemp twine and embellished with a length of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and dressed up with a sheer, turquoise, polka dot ribbon, tied in a bow, as well as a turquoise button, laced with a white, string bow.

Our Powell Butterfly, die-cut from Island Indigo cardstock and dressed up with a coat of Clear Wink of Stella, and a trio of wood veneer hearts complete the look.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!

Simply Love
By Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppy Blog! Happy Valentine's Day!

Poppysimplylove

I used the heart channel Die with the red foil cardstock, I wanted a masculine feel to the card and it needed to be kept simple. The love is cut from the scribble love heart in a shiny silver paper, along with adding the single heart to the channel.

A set of Valentine's Day cards
by Ilona Zbieg

Hi all.

Today I want to show you a set of cards about love. 

To create this card, I used a big set of dies and stamps from new  Poppystamps release.

As you can see, this time I didn't use watercolor paints. Only plain paper, Memory Box stencils and dies.

All the cards that I've done I donated to charity. 

I wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day.

 My card features a fun tag with a heart shaped shaker. To create this card, I created a tag using a Festival Tag die which I die cut a heart shaped window using the Capri Heart die, filled with sequins and beads then layered with another Festival Tag die cut. The fun background was made using the Heart Pattern Plate die.

Happy Hearts
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone! Sue here with a heart themed thank you card.

P1340933c

Do you see all the pretty swirly colours on the background? Well, that was done using alcohol inks on glossy paper. I attached this piece to a white card base.

From white linen card stock I die cut the Happy Hearts Channel and then used the Eyelet Stitches to add a decorative edge along the top and bottom.

P1340946c

I adhered the white panel onto the inky background and added a thin strip of black card stock along the top, two strips of the alcohol inked piece close to the Eyelet Stitches and a glittery strip to anchor the sentiment.

P1340940c

To finish off I added the Spectacular Thank You sentiment and a couple of glittered hearts.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a crafty day!
