Most Amazing MOM POPPY
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Happy Mother's Day! Welcome to another week of Fabulous inspiration of this beautiful release! I just LOVE Poppies and Fairies!
Poppy with fairy
I went for the traditional poppy color since it is my home states flower. I combined sponging and splatter along with twine and dimension for depth. I purposely offset the white panel for interest. I used some washing tape as my title. I like making this artsy feeling card. I hope you enjoy it.

Dandelion Wish
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Good Morning Poppystamp fans! Spring is finally showing up here in California and so the Dandelions are too! I remember as a kid picking these and making a wish and blowing them. That was my inspiration for this card. Could be Birthday, encouragement of cheer.

I used memory Box Stitched ovals to create a frame for my shiny silver dandelions. By mounting the panels with foam tape it gives the card that added depth and fun!

Placing the two dies on the panel with a post it cut then flip and lace your foam squares for easy attachment to your card base.

Happy Birthday
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! Today I am sharing a Birthday card in honor of my Granddaughter's Birthday. I am still not packed and we have to leave in 3 hours. I think I am not going to get much sleep.

Poppymelodybday

I used the Happy Birthday Melody die and the Celebration balloons. I used colors that coordinate with the party.

IMG_2818

Cut Birthday Melody out of purple and out of  a whit panel for the card. This could have easily been made into a shaker card if time had allowed. I splashed some ink to remove so much white space.
IMG_2818

My tip for adding balloon strings, use studio multi-matte medium to glue strings after looping.

Hoppy Birthday
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps blog. Lezlye here today sharing a froggy birthday card.

Poppystamps frog

I cut several of the frogs, lined them all up and added the jumping one to represent the birthday person.

I used my Misti tool to do the sentiment. I wanted to alter the saying to fit my dies. Just ink up a portion of the word, clean re-position and stamp.

I also used it to perfectly line up the second part of the sentiment on the die cut flag.

Happy Easter
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Good Morning Poppystamps fans! I have  an Easter card for you today.

Final poppy

I did an inlay technique here. I used three colors of cardstock.

IMG_2778

Use a post it note to hold the die in place, I ran my background colors with the white to get my positioning of my papers correct.
IMG_2785

You will need to save all the tiny pieces to insert back into the letters as shown in the photo below.

You'll notice I used green to match the grass below and blue on top. There are several variations of this technique. It can be tedious but well worth the end result. I created my own grass tufts using fringe scissors and a strip of cardstock. Just tucking the eggs into the grass. A couple hopping bunnies to tie into the theme.

 I added Stickles with a paint brush and a little grey copic marker to the clouds. I hope you enjoy my Easter Card.

During the the blitz we will be showing you projects made with the newest release and giving you a chance to win on every single post! Today I am sharing the Mushrooms and Toadstools die.

I did some inking with distress inks. Used the Open Studio dies circles for my stage for my scene. I then added some die cut flowers from the Madison window set along with the greenery. Stickles are a must with any fairy scene.

I just love this card, she was a labor of love for me. Took me three days from my visualization to completion. I know some cards are like that for me.

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.

Flatgrateful

Have a fabulous day.

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.

 

Flatchannellove

My last Valentine's Card for this year! Have a great day!
