Sending Hugs and Prayers

Hi everyone! I have a card today showcasing a new stamp and die set from Poppystamps called, Sending Scribbles.

It's wonderful to have the option to use matching dies when creating a card!

Here's a look at what I used:

DSC_0004

I made my card a shaker using the Curved Banner Frame die, stamping inside and on the banner.

All those cute little shaker elements are from an online shop called Buttons Galore, (more about them later this month!),

and come already mixed. This vial of sequins and beads is a Candy Cane mix. I sprinkled a few on the outside of the shaker too.

The banner's been cut 3 times to pop up a bit, and the bottom flowers also popped up with foam.

All my images were colored with Ranger's Distress Oxide Inks.

Hope this inspires you to get creative with some of your stamps and dies! Have a fabulous day!

Holiday Blog Blitz: Holly Twig
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a few new goodies from our latest 2017 Holiday Release.  Please forgive my photography skills, though.  White is super hard for me to photograph, but it's ever so striking in real life.  Enjoy!

Poppy Season's Greetings Jar - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by rubbing Broken China Distress Ink, through the Winter Scattered Snowflakes designer stencil, onto the center of the white cardstock, card face.  Over the stenciling, I created the scene with die cuts, beginning with an older Ava Snowflake, die-cut from white cardstock.  The rest of the die cuts all came from this latest release.  The Double Pine Cone Collage was die-cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock.  Tip:  Use the negative die cut as a template for gluing each of those little bits into their proper places.  The Wispy Pine Needles were die-cut from Old Olive cardstock.  The Holly Twig, which you have the opportunity to win on the blog today (Woot!  Woot!), was die-cut from Soft Suede and Garden Green cardstocks; and Xmas Red Stickles was used for the berries.  Finally, the Cute Fawn was die-cut from watercolor paper and watercolored.

8.8.17 027

I then die-cut the largest jar, from the new Jar Collection craft dies, in the center of a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" white, glitter paper.  A strip of vellum was gold-embossed with the "season's greetings" sentiment, taken from our Christmas Greetings stamp set, and adhered along the vertical, left edge of the backside of the die-cut jar, sandwiched between the glitter paper and a sheet of clear cardstock.  The edges of the glitter paper were then framed with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  Tip:  Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, machine-stitching the glitter paper and clear cardstock together also ensures that they stay put for the long haul.

8.8.17 033

The prepped, jar panel was then popped up, with foam tape, over everything else; but before it was adhered in place, I added lots of white glitter, to the scene itself, to create a shaker effect.  Tip:  Apply a thin layer of baby powder over all the glued bits, as well as to the backside of the clear cardstock, to prevent the glitter from sticking itself in all the wrong places.  The lid was die-cut from gold cardstock; hand-cut along its bottom edge; adhered to the top of the jar; and embellished with a couple of Garden Green cardstock, Holiday Holly die cuts, as well as a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, studded with a single, white pearl, to complete the look.

8.8.17 037

Be sure to stop back by every day through next Tuesday, August 14, 2017, to see what my talented teammies have cooked up, using all the newly-released goodies, just for your viewing pleasure.  AND don't forget to leave lots of love as you visit; because a new, Holiday Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Thursday, August 17, 2017, to do so.  Winners will be announced, right here on the blog, the following Friday, August 18, 2017.  As I said before, I've got that fabulous Holly Twig craft die, that you see in action above, to giveaway today.

That's it, from me, for today, friends.  Actually, that's it, from me, for Poppystamps.  It's my time to move on; but before I do, I have to send out a massive thank you to Jeanne for her friendship and loyalty.  She has unwaveringly believed in me and, without a doubt, been my biggest cheerleader.  I also wanted to thank Dave for giving me the opportunity to work with his gorgeous and intricate dies.  I have been stretched creatively beyond my wildest imagination but, truly, in such a good way.  And finally, thank you to each and every one of YOU, my faithful followers.  I hope this won't be the end for us and that you'll continue to come along with me on my creative journey.  What's in store is sure to surprise you as much as it does me, but I can't wait to see what it may be!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and good luck with ALL the glorious prizes during release week!  Be blessed!

Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez

 Hi there ! I hope you are enjoying the Poppystamps Blog Blitz !

As soon as the new dies came back in July I sat down to make this shaker card just for fun , I liked it so much I thought I should use it for the blog blitz!

Download

My top layer is watercolor paper to add a bit of texture. I added a layer of acetate under the second layer of paper, then added glass beads for the shaker.

I cut the word Merry, from the new Merry Frame and the word Christmas, from the new Christmas frame. I love that I now have an easy "Merry Christmas" sentiment to add to any of my Christmas cards. I sure need to get busy , I usually have about half  of my Christmas cards completed  by now.

 So many new stamps and be beautiful new Holiday dies to choose from this summer. No need to wait till the last minute.

Evangeline Floating Square
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4684-wm

Hello Everyone!

Thank you all so much for dropping by and taking a look at our gorgeous new Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz! We have got beautiful holiday designs and inspiration from August 2 -14, and a chance to win every day! Today, I am am sharing a card I created with the brand new Evangeline Floating Square. Take a look!

IMG_4683-wm

I created a magical snowy shaker card perfect for the very first holiday snow day! I used the Evangeline Floating Square as the top layer of my shaker card, and filled it with clear white and pale blue sequins, snowflakes, and tiny sprinkles. I really had my shaker well "loaded" but as soon as I turned it up, half my sequins and most of my sprinkles all seemed to stick to the double sided foam tape on the inside and disappear! It still looks cool when I shake it though!

IMG_4676-wm

Once I had my shaker part finished, I double cut the Magic Loose Script in blue and white glitter paper, and added it right in the center. This could look really cute with anything winter or holiday, like a  holly sprig and berries, or tiny pine cones or gingerbread men. Then I added the Small Polar Bear and a Stitched Alpine Snowflake with tiny foam pop dot bits, and then topped it off with a few sparkling sequins. Magic is afoot!

Hello!  This Christmas shaker card was so much fun to make and, since fun is fun, I am convinced it is never too early to start thinking about holiday cards! The brand new  Tiny Polar Bears and Celeste Snowflakes make adorable elements when die cut out of shrink film... with plenty of bling to match. The Pointed Rectangle Frames keeps the project easy to add both a frame and the spacing foam for the shaker card. Here are some close-ups, with a video down below:

Ballerina Shaker Card
by Jeanne Jachna

Celebrate-Dance-Four
I hope you're having a beautiful day!  I sure hope you love pink because if you do you're going to love my card today!    Every time I see a ballerina I have to think of my daughter taking dance classes when she was about 5.  Things didn't work out so well for my little girl who was more concerned with the stickers they put on the floor to let the girls know where to stand than learning Plie and Jete, but boy did she ever look cute all in pink, head to toe, tutu and satin slippers! 
Celebrate-Dance-Six
I thought the FLORAL DANCE COLLAGE would make a fun shaker!  To spice things up a bit I added some layers of pink ombre under the shaker.
Celebrate-Dance-Two
I cut panels in three shades of pink with the PRETTY STITCHES border set.   The different shaped openings and fancy stitched detail adds a touch of elegance to the design.
Celebrate-Dance-One
The two darker shades of pink are adhered directly to the card base while only the top (lightest layer) is adhered with adhesive foam tape.  This creates a pocket to fill with seed beads and sequins! You can see the dimension here.
Celebrate-Dance-Three
A die cut makes the perfect simple sentiment.  This FANCY CELEBRATE die fits inside the FLORAL DANCER COLLAGE opening perfectly! 
Celebrate-Dance-Five
I love a shaker card!  Something about it just fascinates me!  OK .. so I'm easily amused!  HAHA!  The finishing touch on this one is a few BUTTERFLY SPRINKLES!  They're dancing along with this ballerina.
Celebrate-Dance
Have a great day!  I hope you find some time to make something beautiful! 
Hugs!

Happy Dad's Day
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing the card I stretched my stash to make my dad for Father's Day.

Poppy Happy Dad's Day - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by adding green and blue, watercolor puddles to a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as teal watercolor, before smearing Tumbled Glass Distress Ink through the Memory Box Winter Snowflakes stencil and splattering once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  The Stitched Tunnel Tag was then die-cut, from the prepped piece, just left of vertical center and set aside for later before matting that same original, watercolor piece with white cardstock and anchoring it, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, to the Brocade Blue, cardstock, card face.  I then used the "happy valentine's day" stamp, from our Grateful Heart stamp set, to make the "happy DAD's day" sentiment by replacing the "valentine" with die-cut, from teal cardstock, using our Happy Birthday Bold die, letters to spell "DAD".

6.17.17 052
The Stitched Tunnel Tag, that had been set aside previously, was then laced with Baker's Twine...

6.17.17 058
backed with a bit of cheesecloth for texture; and popped up, with foam tape, in the same, negative space from which it was initially die-cut.

It was also topped with a stamped in Jet Black ink, watercolored, and hand-cut Be Mine Penguin, dressed in a top hat and tie and popped up with more foam tape, in addition to a stamped, in Cotton White StazOn ink, on clear cardstock and die-cut Grateful Heart.  The stamped Grateful Heart was backed with another die-cut, clear, cardstock Grateful Heart, before they were stitched together; but before finishing off the last few white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, I stuffed the formed, heart pocket with Raspberry, Seaspray, Crystal, and silver star sequins, as well as silver seed beads, to complete the look.

6.17.17 061
Thanks, as always, for visiting us!  Be blessed!
