For the shaker window I used the Open Hillside, Sloping Hillside and Snowscape. I cut them all out of white for my card.They layer smallest to largest.

I re-detirmine where I want my cuts to go and lay them out and take a photo to refer back to for final card assembly. Acetate wind is placed over opening.

Peony Get Well
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog, Lezlye here today showcasing a NEW stamp set and coordinating dies.

Poppypeony
I stamped the Peony flower on Neenah solar white yardstick and cut out with the perfectly precision die.  I chose a little deeper topic markers pictured below.


Poppypeony2

I drew up a sketch and  based my card off of it. I find this helps get the card design started if you ar having a mental mojo block...

I stamped with versa mark ink on my deep red yardstick circle with the dot texture from the set.

This Nuevo Glimmer paste is neat, it is thick and acts as a colored embossed look. Just look at that yummy texture and color.

I circle cut a apiece of vellum, stamped the sentiment on a flag banner. I used some twine for texture. Final step to add some sparkle, wink of Stella and star sequins.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did with this Fabulous new set perfect for coloring!

Marine Birthday Wishes
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Today I am sharing a masculine card that I made for my youngest son. He is a U.S. Marine and today is his 23 Birthday!

Poppy masculine Bday

I used the Circle Layers from Birch Press Design on my base card along with a stitched Oval die for the platform for my Daisies.

Poppy3

I used the green black and a pop of white for a very masculine feel. The  Happy Birthday streamer die I mounted to green yardstick strips.

I added a dimensional military sticker on there for him. 

Have a great weekend!

Hello Birthday Girl
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! I hope to provide you with some inspiration using dies, stencil and glimmer paste. I have used several Poppystamps dies to create this one of a kind card. Today I have a Very Special card that I have made for my Mother  for her 79th Birthday, she has Dementia and I am her Caregiver Daizypoppy

First I created my background panel, using a stitched oval Memory Box CO die and a Memory Box stencil (diapers) to push the Nuvo Glimmer paste through. I used a Purple shade. Allow some dry time before removing the stencil, however do not let it dry completely.

IMG_3020
Oval stencil on a 4.25 x 5.5 panel for stencil mask. Then add the stencil and line up with another panel of the same size, you will cut it down to 3.75 x 5 after it's done and dried.

Spread the Nuvo Glimmer Paste through the stencil with a spatula, allow to semi dry and remove stencil before it drys completely.

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.
