I used my Wink of Stella shimmer pen on dark navy card stock. I first tried embossing, ink blending and glitter, I liked this one the best for Christmas. The stencil comes with this die!n

 I ended up using many layers because I kept changing my mind on what color I wanted on top. I like all the layers!

by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_6597

 Hi there ! Marybeth Lopez here today with a non traditional color Christmas card. I used one of the brand new sentiments called Art Deco Celebrate Christmas. Blog Blitz coming soon!

IMG_6575

I stamped some ink on my glass mat then spritzed with water and placed my card on top, after it was dry I cut out the Angel.

IMG_6576

I dipped the angel in Versa Mark ink, then clear powder with a bit of glitter .

IMG_6578

I cut two layers one for the top panel and one of fun foam to give a bit of depth to the beautiful snowflake Collage ( can be used any time of year).

IMG_6579

I added the glue to the front of the fun foam and placed the top panel on top. I couldn't resist adding some glitter.

Thanks so much for the visit! I have been so busy painting our master bedroom I haven't had much time in my craft room. This is the only time I wish my bedroom was not so large. I think I'm  getting too old to paint 😊

Hope you have a great weekend!

God Bless!

Joy To The World
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_6362

Hello and happy fall to you all! Marybeth here today with a Christmas shaker card, that could pop off and be used for an ornament . I used the Poppystamps Pinpoint Shaker ornament along with  Bubble Spiral and Santa's Sleigh. All linked below.

IMG_6339

I  glued a few layers of die -cut fun foam and one layer of acetate then filled with a mix of sequins and beads, all white. If you look closely  you can see I added glue around the main piece with the sleigh and placed on top of the filled ornament.

IMG_6359

I always thought the Bubble Spiral would be good to hang something on or maybe add a large balloon to the top and let it be the string.

It's a clean and simple card with Joy to the World stamped using the CL467 Tidings of Joy clear stamp set from Poppystamps .

Beaded Felt Christmas Pins
by Marybeth Lopez

 

Download

Hello! Marybeth here today! Looks like a few of us had the same idea again. I had this project completed on July 27 and couldn't wait to share my Christmas pins with you. Looks like the very creative and talented DT member Olga beat me to it. I so loved her paper pins.

IMG_5319

 

I decided to make felt pins even though these are not stitched projects, they are very easy to make into one. You can even hot glue the layers of felt together  as I did on some of these. I have three layers on each pin . I used the last layer to hide the back side of the stitching.

IMG_5321

The silver thing in the middle is what I use to thread my very tiny needle ( so the needle will go through the tiny beads.

Download-3

The Mistletoe and Holly die set  from Poppystamps had a few different choices that you could choose from. I loving using glass beads and sequins on my felt projects . Since the mistletoe is on the thin side I will just add a very tiny safety pin to the back.

My mother made me some beautiful handmade pins years ago but now they go front and center on my Christmas tree. I love adding handmade treasures on our Christmas tree.

Download-1

I made two versions on this pin one was stitched with thread as you can see in the first photo and this one with glass beads.

These are very simple and fun to make and a great time to make a few before we get too busy with Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Day Four of the Poppystamps Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_5265

Hello! Welcome to the 4th day of the Blog Blitz! We are showcasing some of Poppystamps brand new Products and oh boy .... I am loving them all!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post if you would like a chance to win this absolutely amazing  Holly Vine Sidekick Frame and Stencil Set from Poppystamps !

IMG_5232

Dave ( the owner) has a great video up on the store website if you would like to watch how he made a card using the same set but with ink blending.

I used a water-pen and Zig Brush Pens to color my card.

Tape the main panel , then tape down the stencil. I used frog tape because I like how easily  it comes off.

IMG_5234

Here is a photo of some of the process. After I took off the stencil I watercolored the branches . I cut two lavers of this panel , layered them for a bit of depth. The watercolor paper is thick so two was just enough.

IMG_5235

I watercolored the cabin then added the glittered roof. I cut a piece of fun foam , colored the door and window then glued together and on the main panel. I added Glossy Accents to the windows to look like glass.

IMG_5247

Can you see the stencil above.... it comes with the die!

I love this new little Poppystamps Winter Cabin  I also used the new Poppystamps Tidings of Joy Clear Stamp.

Shimmery Shaker
by Marybeth Lopez

 

Fullsizeoutput_1625

Hello again! Marybeth here a with a shimmery shaker card using the new Poppystamps : Delicate Branch Collage along with Sending Scribbles Clear Stamp .

IMG_4814

Below I have a few step by step pictures.

IMG_4802

I covered up the branches using the negative of the die then lightly shaded the frame with a brush for a smoother look over the watercolor paper.

IMG_4804

I watercolored the branches with a water pen and Zig pens, careful not to let the water run onto the sides of the frame.

IMG_4806

Before taping fun foam to the back I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the branches . Make sure your fun foam is at the very edge of the opening so the sequins don't fall to the bottom, where you won't see them. I filled the back up with sequins, placed my stamped back panel to the card then placed to my card base.

IMG_4810

 Not the prettiest picture above but you get the idea. The backside doesn't have to be perfect in fact I tape and cut the fun foam as needed. For me the Fun Foam seems to lay nicer than the foam tape. Your choice either one works.

IMG_4820

 Watermark copy

I loaded this one up with lots of sequins , hope you like it!

Thank you for the visit.

Watercolored Plumed Peacock
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_4780

Hi there! Marybeth here today with this simple jeweled :Plumed Peacock from Poppystamps .  I had no idea how much I would end up loving this die! 

IMG_4759

 I stamped some ink on a piece of acetate, spritzed with water then placed my watercolor cardstock on top and pressed down. Its called smooching.

IMG_4775

I die cut the Peacock twice, once for the top panel and one for my outline inlay. I took out all the small cut pieces so that I could just add some bling. You could also add sequins , beads etc. I stamped my sentiment with one of my favorite stamps sets from Poppystamps called: Sending Scribbles.

 Thank you for the visit. I hope you are enjoying your summer.

IMG_4140

I cut apart the Finial Circle die , glued on the front panel and also used shimmer pen .

IMG_4115

I kept the first word die in place so it was easy to layer.
