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.

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.

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.

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!

12 Hearts of Love
By Lezlye Lauterbach

 

12 Hearts of Love

I know more Valentine's, Anniversary or just because .... :) I can't help it.

12 heartslovepoppy

I used the hearts that were die cut from the inlay heart and heart channel die. the large love is a die from Open Studio a division of Memory Box and Poppystamps called all about love.

I also used the New impression plate on white cardstock and then cut it down to the size mat I needed for my 12 hearts. This is a great way to use your cuts. Just simple store your cuts with your dies and use them negatives and positive parts of the dies.

Have a fabulous day! Su is out here in CA so I am a happy girl!

By Lezlye Lauterbach

 

 

Welcome Poppystamps Fans!Continuing on with my Love of Valentine's for the Blog Blitz. I have used watercolor paper to cut with the grid collage die. I had imagined this card when I picked this die.

  Collagegridrevised

Gridcollage2

 

I watercolored the base using reds, pinks and a touch of orange the brushed on the pinks/reds on the top, die cut piece. Finished it off by adding black ink splatters, because I intended to add a black, white embossed sentiment also from Poppystamps.

IMG_1388

The hearts were from the inlay heart die. I also watercolored the white one that I attached to the sentiment. The top piece is mounted with foam squares to add dimension.

Holiday Greeting
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog! I have Christmas Card for you today!

Chalkchristmas

I cut the poinsettia out of kraft cardstock and colored them with Prismacolor colored pencils for a soft vintage look.  I created the chalkboard look on my black cardstock by rubbing white pigment ink on it, then removing some with a baby wipe.

Chalkpoppy2

I used the same ink for the sentiment and then heat embossed it with white powder for a pop.

Poppy3

I love adding the chunky gold glitter to the centers as an alternative. Have a great day!

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!
