Palma Curve Scene
by Jeanne Jachna

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a great day!  It's cloudy with scattered showers throughout the day here in the Chicago area, but there's no reason we can't make our own sunshine right?  Today I'm playing with the Palma Curve die.   This is really a unique set of two dies.  I used them to create this dreamy card! 
I started by cutting the die and using the clean half oval shape as a mask for inking.  I blended distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, and Crushed Olive.  
Don't worry if you get some "hard lines" from the blender on the outer edges - those will be covered up later.  You just need enough ink to complete the oval shape.  I brought the blending tool in from all directions so I covered more of the paper than I needed to.  When you're happy with the blending you can add a splash of water or white ink like I did.  If you want to leave it "as is" that's fine too. 
I cut the two dies apart and cut the piece with the foliage from gold glitter paper.  I cut the smooth oval frame from white card stock.  Next I adhered them together to make it easier to trim them at the same time to fit the card base. 
I added a simple Scribble Hello sentiment cut from white and placed it in the bottom corner.  The white on white is subtle so the focus stays on all that gold up top.

The Posing Faerie looks right at home in this setting!  A few Butterfly Sprinkles in gold complete the scene.  They're just the right size and in proportion with the faerie.  I have them flying out of the scene at the top.
This die has lots of possibilities, you can place it horizontally or vertically, you can use the solid oval shape to create a complete oval by cutting it twice.   You can change up the colors and add more dimension by popping up each layer with adhesive foam tape.  The only limit is your own imagination! 
Here's a few more ways you can cut this die.
First cut the floral edge, then place the oval die so it meets the cut lines of the floral edge.  When it's cut out it will look like this.
You can also cut the two die side by side to create this look.
If you love this style die you should check out the Schaefer Curve too - it's really similar.  Here's pictures of both side by side for a comparison.

Hi there! It's Mona here today to share a mixed media style card featuring several products from the New Spring 2017 Release along with other fun Poppystamps products. To create the background, I randomly spritzed die cut memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers with various color sprays. The largerBox Stitched Rectangle features two Ring a Ding Corners layered on top. Once the background was completed, I embellished with a die cut Garden Lantern which I added a coating of embossing enamel that added a little shimmer and shine:

I embellished the lantern with a double layered Stitched Butterfly Trio then finished with a Scribble Hello sentiment:


Many thanks for stopping by!

For the focal point, I featured a double layered pretty Scribble Flower Circle. I love all the pretty little flowers as they are the perfect place holders for tiny pearls. For the sentiment, I used the Scribble hello die and finished with a couple of Pretty Stitches trimming.

I couldn't resist embellishing with a triple layered Stitched Butterfly:

I used my Peerless Watercolors from Birch Press Design, love these watercolors for a rich vibrant color! I wanted the background to be my focal point so I added the Freida Curve in white only .

It is lightly stamped in a softer color ink, using a sentiment from the new Grateful Hearts Clear Stamp from Poppystamps 


I wanted to show you what the front side of the panel looked like, much soother but for some reason I like the way the back looked with more of an outline of each cut.

Hope you like it and don't forget to comment for a chance to win the Heart Pattern Plate!

Hip Hello
by Jeanne Jachna

Isn't the weather just lovely?  I'm still delighted to see GREEN everywhere!  Each day brings a new surprise - a flower blooming or a visit from a bird that has wintered away!  It's like my little corner of the world is coming alive!   I wanted to capture that feeling with vibrant colors on my card today! 
I created my card base by cutting rows of the rush arrow dies from a white card stock panel.  I have a magnetic plate on my die cut machine so it was easy to space them approximately 1/2" apart.  I cut once, and then ran it through the machine again for each of the cuts.   I made the strips different lengths to add more interest.  When the panel was cut I removed all the die cut pieces and then taped strips of colored card stock to the reverse side of the panel to peek through the openings before adhering it to my card base.
I double cut the Gingko Branch in dark and light green so it wouldn't fade into that strong background.     I did the same with the hello sentiment - this time adding a cut of gold glitter paper for some sparkle and shine!
I love the button dies - have you checked them out?  Poppystamps has classic buttons, stars, hearts, and these pretty butterflies that make great accents.  Some even have stitching!  
I love the rainbow of color!  Wishing you a beautiful day!

Peekaboo Shaker
by JJ Bolton


There's a lot of stuff going on with this card today, so let's get to it:)  When I saw the Jourdana Collage die, I knew that it would make a great background.  This dies works great with a colored panel behind it (blended ink, watercolored, colored card stock, etc.).  But today, I decided to make a shaker behind the die cut!  Here's a look at the back of the front panel. A couple tips about shaker cards.  It always take more filler than you think and use foam tape to keep the filler in the right place.  You see those 2 pieces of foam tape in the corners?  Those will keep the filler from falling down into a spot that is not visible from the front.  


This card also has a little watercolor butterfly. To get the look, I watercolored it, sprinkled on some watercolor powder, sprayed it with white mist, sprayed it with shimmer mist, and then  sprinkled large hex glitter on it.  Whew, heehee!


I used a strip of card stock for my sentiment, and then I added the butterfly just over the sentiment.  


I hope everyone has a wonderful week!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Lucky Hello
by Lezlye Lauterbach








Welcome Spring! I love GREEN! The hills all around me are green due to some much needed rain. Yahoo! I decided to make my card primarily green and white with a splash of gold!


I used the Darling Viola Die along with the viola leaves for my focal point.Cutting them out of white and two shades of green for added intrest.

I layered them up as shown and added foam square mounting tape to the back. I cut my sentiment hello out of green as well. Set my layers up and found and awesome piece

of textured paper to mount my diet flowers on. Some gold sparkle paper strips spaced behind the textured piece for some wow factor.. Bling was added in a visual triangle.
