Happy Easter!
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Morning-Five
I hope you're having a fabulous Easter day and that the sun is shining wherever you are!    I love creating scenes with my Poppystamps dies and today I thought a beautiful Spring Day was just the ticket! 
Easter-Morning-Two
I started by cutting the Happy Easter Curve from white card stock.  Next I cut it again from green card stock.  I inserted the white die into the negative cut on the green and adhered it to a panel of sky blue card stock.  I added some Stitched Cloudlines for the sky and a sun made from Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Circle Layers.
Easter-Morning-Four
To add some depth and dimension I added a second grassy hill by cutting the Dotted Curve cut from a light green card stock.
 Easter-Morning-Three
The Serene Rabbit is inspecting some Stitched Eggs.  I also added a Elegant Easter Lilly.  I cut the stalk from lime green cardstock, and then cut the flowers from white.  I inked the edges of the flowers with yellow and slightly offset them  when I attached them to the stem to give a fuller appearance. 
Easter-Morning-Six
A Butterfly Sprinkle of  flying friends in yellow and pink are fun and colorful.  
Easter-Morning
It looks like a beautiful day doesn't it?    I made one more really clean and simple Easter card today!
Happy-Easter-Watercolor-Str
For this easy card I water colored stripes of paint - colors you might use to dye your eggs!  and then added the Happy Easter sentiment in gold over the top!
Easter-Stripes
Wishing you all the best today and always!

Egg Hunt Treat Bag
by Olga Direktorenko

This Easter treat bag is made with tag dies - I have used Tunnel Tags to create the front and the back of a bag (watch the video to learn how to do it!). The little egg hunt scene is made with felt and some intricate Poppystamps dies:

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.

My tip for adding balloon strings, use studio multi-matte medium to glue strings after looping.

HAPPY EASTER card
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5372

Hi Everyone.

Today I have for you very easy and simple project. 

I love kraft and eco paper. Each design with kraft paper is elegant. You do not need many add-ons and colors to get a niceeffect.

In my projects I often use kraft paper with white additives. Many of my wedding cards have such a style. This time I decided to make an Easter card in a similar way.

As you can see - under the  Squiggle Egg dies, I glued hand-cut egg shape, made of white paper. Corners of the card are decorated with white paper cutouts (Burnished Corner).

Hi there! It's Mona here today to share a couple of Easter projects featuring a variety of products from the New Spring 2017 Release along with other fun Poppystamps products. To create the background. I stamped the pretty flower bouquet from the Friends and Flowers stamp set in a heart shape then water colored using an oil crayon. I created a meadow scene featuring die cut Preppy Flowers along with a Serene Rabbit.

Dandelion Stem
by Pam Simpson

Hello Everyone.

Love using flowers and pretty borders, thought I would share how easy it is to make a lacy frame from a border die.

IMG_0195-crop

See what I mean! how pretty is this frame and these gorgeous Dandelion Stems both from Poppystamps.

IMG_0191-crop

I made a frame with dies from my stash! you could do this with a cutter or craft knife and pencil lines ...Poppystamps "Pretty Stitches" border measure`s  5.1/2" long..my inside frame measure`s the same 5.1/2" outside measure`s 6.1/2" ..this make`s   1/2" frame, ..in the photo I have cut 4 borders , adhered two on the reverse to show, this you do to these 4 borders.

IMG_0192-crop

How pretty does this frame look.. I used 3d foam tape to apply to my Lilac background.

IMG_0193-crop

I wanted some feature on the background..this is another very easy thing to do.  6.1/2" square Lilac card.. find the center .. using Memory Box..Open Studio Stitched Oval Layers, tape as shown..NEXT   run through your machine to Emboss these dies (Not Cut), next while still on the card run a line of glue center ovals, remove these and add loose glitter, I use Glamour Dust.

IMG_0194-crop

Few splatters of white paint on the background, two Dandelion stems adhered the center of the flower only, to finish liquid pearls, with two ribbon swirls from  Open Studio "Banner Parade" ..sentiment from CL443. Grateful Heart stamp set by Poppystamps.  

 

Thank you for stooping by today..

Happy Easter
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing an Easter card that I made for my dear, sweet neighbor.  Enjoy!

Poppystamps Happy Easter - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by creating a puddle of various shades of blue watercolor on a 3-1/2" x 4-7/8" watercolor paper rectangle.  I then splattered it with those same shades of blue watercolor, as well as pink, yellow, green, and purple watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once it was dry, I framed it with Perfect Plum cardstock and white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, whose ends were tied in a little bow just for a dash of extra texture.

4.10.17 061

The Happy Easter Curve title, too, was die-cut from Perfect Plum cardstock; adhered near the top of the design; given a bit of shine with Glossy Accents; and grounded with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, "from all of us", which comes from our Christmas Friends stamp set.

  4.10.17 054

I then made the row of critters by die-cutting, from left to right, the Tiny Frog from Pear Pizzazz cardstock; Bunny Hop from textured, white cardstock; Simple Sheep from Very Vanilla and kraft cardstocks; the Purrfect Holidays chick from a soft yellow cardstock; and the single Young Fox Pair from an apricot cardstock.  Each one, with the exception of the bunny itself, was given a set of Bunny Ears, which were die-cut from Bashful Blue or Pink Pirouette cardstock, and popped up with foam tape.  The entire panel, too, was popped up with foam tape in the center of the white, cardstock, card face to complete the look.

 Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a terrific Tuesday, y'all, and a blessed Easter season!
