Seaside Birthday Greetings
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_2959

Hi there! Marybeth here today with this detailed: Seaside Dock and Wooden Rowboat dies from Poppystamps !

IMG_2963

I cut my dies out of colored cardstock then lightly shaded them with soft brushes to highlight the detail even more. The brushes help me keep it light, even and smoother than a sponge.

Each one( boat and dock) is layered twice then adhered with foam tape. The background was made by  shading and  kinda guessing where the water and land would be.

IMG_2961

 The brushes wash out very easily and dry fast. I also used watercolor cardstock for the base of my card.

 I added a little piece of twine to the dock and boat, for a little more 3d look of the card.

 Thanks so much for the visit and congratulations to all the Blog Blitz winners!

by Marybeth Lopez

Download-7

Hi there and welcome to: Day Two of the Poppystamps Blog Blitz! The design team will be sharing some of the new spring products from Poppystamps .

You will have a chance to win each day by leaving a comment . Today I will be giving away the :Double Stitch Tags Die Set  to one random commenter.

IMG_2281

The leaves and some of the flowers are watercolored using the Peerless Watercolor Sheet Pack from Birch Press Design, then cut using Poppystamps New Blooming Border. 

IMG_2286

 To make the small tag for the sentiment I cut down the smallest tag in the set as pictured above.

IMG_2284

I wanted the die cut flowers and sequins to shake freely so I have two lavers : One with fun foam and the other double sided foam tape. I trimmed the outer edge of the fun foam to make sure it wouldn't show.  I also added Poppy Sequin mix of :Fairy Sparkle.

 These are the dies that I used pictured above , the sentiment is from the new and adorable Stamp Set :Easter Chicks from Poppystamps.

Having the two layers (to raise the acrylic layer) was definitely a good idea, happy I remade my shaker tag. I am sharing a few photos to show the movement of how nicely the move.

Hello ! I have a very clean and simple card for you today, I think this would be a good masculine card ( especially if you like carrot cake)

The carrot for this card is from an older set of Poppystamps , called Easter Excitement. I colored the carrot in with my Copic markers.

Hello! Hope you are happy and well.

 I was very excited about this month's challenge because it is just up my alley, being Clean and Simple.  Hope you all have a chance to play this month. We are looking for Clean & Simply..... Please make sure you have at least one Poppystamps product on your card for a chance to win.

 I cut my die using watercolor cardstock , then placed a piece of patterned paper( big enough to cover the openings) underneath. Then I cut again using yellow and green carrdstock. I layered the center dots on the bloom twice, then added the green for the leaves.  I placed a piece of fun foam under the front panel.  Then stamped the sentiment using Sending Scribbles clear stamp from Poppystamps . I added a bit of shimmer with a shimmer pin on the leaves and center dots.

 The envelopes I use are always from Birch Press Design . So many beautiful colors to choose from.
 
Thanks for the visit and have a great week.

Easter Bunny Egg
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1739

Hello! Marybeth here today. Getting a head start on some Easter cards today with this fun little shaker .

I am using Poppystamps new Easter Bunny Egg. I decided to water color this one on the front and background  .

Download-3

 I layered this the same as my other shakers ( fun foam and clear acetate) then filled with beads for a little bit louder shaking noise. I  added fun foamunder the grassy area (otherwise the beads would just fall to the bottom and I would need more beads to fill) 

Fullsizeoutput_10a9

I used an older stamp for the sentiment and just curved it to fit around the upper part of the egg. ( Easter Excitement Poppystamps )

It's always nice when its fun and relaxing when creating a card, I have to say this was one of those kinds of cards.

Don't you love it when that happens!

Download

Outside of the sentiment this card can be made with one die!

The paint I used is shimmery but not showing up in the photos. Thank you for the visit today. 

God bless and thank you all for your past kind comments, that you take time to leave.

Shaker Card
by Marybeth Lopez

 IMG_1563

Hi there and happy Sunday to you! Congratulations to all the Blog Blitz winners!

I have fun shaker card to share with you today: using the new Heart Confetti Collage and Valentine Fairies Clear Stamp Set.

IMG_1552

IMG_1548 2

 I have a layer of fun foam under my front panel then clear acrylic ( not pictured). I used shimmer water color paint to paint my back panel.

After I filled the hearts with sequins I added my painted panel. Then placed the painted panel over the filled, fun foam.

Fullsizeoutput_108a

 The fun foam is just the right height for adding a few sequins. When all the layers were complete I added it to pink cardstock.

Simple Shaker with pretty pinks and soft sequins. Hope you like it! The envelops I use, are from Birch Press Design.

Poppystamps has so many darling new dies right now that are so simple to use and in my opinion cut like butter! 

Hope you have a blessed week!

This is showing the back side of the die before I placed it on the shaker window

I cut the die twice so I could have a white outline of hearts. After I filled it with sequins I added a layer of vellum to the back before adhering to the base of my card.
