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.

Sparkly Negative Spaces
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps winged bird die card 1

I love backing a negative space with a fun contrasting color like I did with the deep teal cardstock on the Winged Bird Die cut out of the dark grey. But I wanted to make the birds wings even more special. So, I filled them with a clear liquid adhesive and then added tiny star sequins. The liquid adhesive dries clear and dimensional, so any parts of the wing not covered by stars are still special.

Check out this quick video to see how I quickly pulled this card together!

How do you like to use negative die cut spaces? Die cut inlay? Making shaker cards? I'd love to hear! Thanks for stopping by!

Shaker Cupcake Toppers
by Olga

Hello and Happy 4th of July to all my US friends! 

Hope you are having wonderful time - and here is the project to add to the holiday mood! I have made a trio of cupcake toppers (Stars and Stripes themed!) with a matching holder box. The toppers are actually shaped shakers filled with stars!

This project is not too time consuming and is a lot of fun to make. I guess it can also be adapted for Christmas or other events!

Nested Dies Two Ways
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps nested dies 2 ways card 1

I love nested dies because they offer so many options, but I understand that they are expensive. So, I think it is always a bonus when you can come up with lots of out of the box ways to use these dies. 

Rebecca keppel poppystamps nested dies 2 ways card 3

The NEW Stitchwork Frames dies are so fun because they create embossed stitch lines and tiny holes along the frame AND cut out the center shape as well. I used a couple of the circle dies to create a pattern on card panel and then layered up several of the squares and rotated the shape on the card front to create a diamond.

These techniques are especially fun when you have vibrant colors of cardstock to work with.

How do you like to get more bang for your buck from your nested dies? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for stopping by!

 The beautiful rainbow colours are from bits I had left, rainbow mirri sticky foil, think you can see the bits i had to play with!.

IMG_2293-crop

Did`nt work out to bad though..I have embossed this foil in my machine with the die, before laying the cut out die on top.

IMG_2294-crop

I have used "Stitched Rectangle frames" & "Delicate Branch Collage" both from the new release, I have offset the smaller inner frame, as I wanted a larger lower border for my peacock plumes. Branches    I coloured with a promarker pen. next 3d foam tape on the reverse, to add depth to the frame.

Card size 7"x 5.1/2" ..adhere the frame as shown..Stamp the sentiment of choice, mine by Poppystamps  from the  "Flower Patch" set.

Summer Release Blog Blitz-To a Special Friend
by Robin Tharaldson

PS June 26 Full With

I hope you have seen the latest release from Poppystamps...no? Well here's the link to see all the new products Summer Release! PLUS, you could win the Daisy Frame die from the Summer Release, more information at the end of my post! The pretty background die on my card is the Daisy Frame!! This die is 4" square and is very versatile! For this card I cut the Daisy Frame three times, yes I know, I do that a lot, BUT I love how it looks!

PS June 26 CU1 With

Also new to this release is the Friend Folksy Script die; just a super fun font! I layered three together, he he he, for more dimension and used a sentiment from the Fairy Wishes stamp set. I cut one sentiment (Special Friend) apart and added it to another (To A), to create the exact wording I wanted on my card.

PS June 26 CU2 With

The dark grey cardstock I used was a nice compliment to the light pink cardstock. It's a nice contrast but much softer looking than black! The following video will show you how to put this card together!

 

If you would like to win the Daisy Frame die, please leave a comment!!  Here's all the important information about Poppystamps Summer Release Blog Blitz!  The blog blitz runs from June 19-29, 2018; Poppystamps is giving away a prize on every Blog Blitz post during this time.  You must leave a comment on ONLY the posts you wish to enter.  To enter ALL the posts during the Blog Blitz you need to leave a comment on EACH ONE.  One person will be chosen at random from each of the posts during the blog blitz.
