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.

Love Rush
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5155-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are all so glad you could join us today, with thoughts of love and cheery days ahead! Today I am sharing a colorful card I created to capture that wonderful feeling of being in love, like a rush of fluttering butterflies! Take a look!

IMG_5152-wm

Tiny butterflies float across the page in a swoosh of color and dimension. I used the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies and the Love Stitch Circle to create a tiny 3D effect.

IMG_5148-wm

Adding the butterflies is the fun part! Once you have all your Lepidoptera cut, carefully fold them in half and arrange them on your card.

IMG_5150-wm

To adhere the butterflies to your card, all you need is a small splotch of glue right in the center. Once the butterfly is in place, gently hold the wings together and use the end of your craft tweezers to press down right in the center for a moment while your glue becomes tacky and sets in place. I like to use Aleene's original tacky glue because it dries so quickly, and has a nice small tip for gluing tiny little cuts.

IMG_5153-wm

Once the butterflies are dry, you can open and close their wings! You can lay the wings flat to slide into an envelope, or close them for a fluttery effect!

Thank you so much for joining us today!

Delightful Daisy
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5122-wm

Hello Everyone!

Our blog blitz is rolling on with even more great ideas and inspiration, and a chance to win too! Today I am sharing a card I created with the pretty Delightful Daisy! It's a sweet and simple CAS salute to spring! Take a look!

IMG_5120-wm

This card was so easy to make (and quick too) that it completely slipped my mind to take a few photos of the creative steps! Ooops!  I cut out the Delightful Daisy in green, white, and yellow, the Little Rabbits, and the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies, glued them in place and it was finished, quick like a bunny! So today, I am going to share a little tip to add dimension to your beautiful CAS die cut cards.

IMG_5124-wm

This tip works especially well with flowers, leaves, and butterflies! When gluing your cuts on to your card base, leave a few areas of the cut "unglued." With the daisy, I glued down the center, but left the petals unglued, then carefully manipulated the paper  to curl the petals up a little, creating dimension and shadow. You could also try a double curl, where you bend the petals up at the center of the flower, then curl them down at the end with a pencil. This is a great effect on flowers like poinsettias or succulent petals, to make the cuts looks puffy. Paper is a wonderful media to manipulate with just simple simple bends and twists.

To add dimension to butterflies, bend them lengthwise in half and just glue a little bit in the center. You can create a swoosh of butterflies, for example, and bend the wings in different positions to look like they are fluttering. I think I'll try that in my next card!

IMG_5118-wm

I can't wait to see all your fresh new ideas with Poppystamps new spring collection! Since it IS a blog blitz, let's get to the blog candy! You could win the Delightful Daisy die just by leaving a comment on today's post! Enter every day for every die you would like to win! Best of luck!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Blog Blitz Spring Bouquet!
by Jennifer Svare

GinghamSpringCard3_Watermark

Hello!  Today I'll share a few ways I used the Garden Bouquet and Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames to create these fun cards!  I just love using scalloped edges and they are especially perfect for spring cards (although I use them all year round). 

Spring Card 2 Watermark

I used different inlay and overlay techniques to create different levels of layers for some dimension throughout the flowers, and the Gotta Have Gingham by Lawn Fawn was used for the backgrounds in different colors. 

Glossy Accents was used on one of the cards to show how that might look. 

How would you like to win the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames?  Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win this awesome set of frame dies! 

I hope you have a great day!

To "set the scene" I added a STITCHED HILL for the bunnies to sit on.  For embellishments I gave one of the LITTLE RABBITS a pom pom tail, and added pearls to the GARDEN WREATH.  The STITCHED FLUTTERING BUTTERFLIES are a must have - there are 5 stitched butterflies in the set and I can see them in lieu of sequins EVERYWHERE!

Blooming Poppy Thanks
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0029

Hi there! I'm excited to show you a card today, with one of the new dies called, 'Blooming Poppy'.

DSC_0031

Nancy Floral Watermark copy

I live in California, and poppies are our state flower. They bloom in abundance in the spring, filling hills and valleys with their bright orange hues. But poppies come in many colors. My card features pinks and coral.

Here's how I made it.

DSC_0002

The die set features the petals, stem and poppy bud. I knew I wanted to make a bouquet so I cut all my images out of cart stock.

DSC_0003

For a bit of dimension I gave a shadow to each petal before assembling my bloom.

DSC_0021

A quick and easy couple of swipes with a copic of a near shade to my card stock.

DSC_0026

I cut a piece of scrap card stock to glue my petals onto. Also die cut the bud in the color of the poppy to add to the stem.

DSC_0013

Once I liked the layout of my card, I added my sentiment die, together with a couple of fern from Garden Sprig,

onto a strip of vellum.

DSC_0020

A few drops of rainstones, and my thank you card is done!

DSC_0032

Hope you enjoyed my post today. The dies I used are listed below. This die is so easy to use and assemble, and would be fun watercolored, sponge inked or shaded with pencil.

Have a great week!

Big Halo Hello
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0007

Hello, and hope all the moms had a Happy Mother's Day!

It's Blog Blitz time at Poppy Stamps!

And I'm happy to be joining the Poppy Design team with my very first post.

Meet a new word die called, Big Halo Hello.

DSC_0006 3

Nancy Floral Watermark copy

There's so much you can do with a large word die. 

Dave did a beautiful watercolor background to showcase his card using this die.

Take a look at another way to make your word dies pop.

DSC_0001

The large word die, 'Hello', comes in 2 pieces, wired together, which I snipped apart.

The larger, fatter die, I die cut on an angle, on the front of my card, giving me a window.

After rainbow inking the larger die cut, I replaced it in the window cutout, gluing it in place.

The smaller, skinny hello, I cut several times, all from white card stock, gluing them on the front

of the card, and snipping off the edges. Really gives it a dramatic embossed look, don't you think?

DSC_0015

You  can see what the inside of the card looks like. Still plenty of room for your message.

DSC_0009

Here's a look at another card using this method, in cooler rainbow colors!

Would you like to win this new Big Halo Hello?

Just leave a comment on each post and you'll be entered to win.

Winners announced on the 24th. Be sure to check back to see if you've won!

Most Amazing MOM POPPY
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Happy Mother's Day! Welcome to another week of Fabulous inspiration of this beautiful release! I just LOVE Poppies and Fairies!
Poppy with fairy
I went for the traditional poppy color since it is my home states flower. I combined sponging and splatter along with twine and dimension for depth. I purposely offset the white panel for interest. I used some washing tape as my title. I like making this artsy feeling card. I hope you enjoy it.

Pretty Preppy Flowers
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a spring floral card. 

P1350238c

I started by water colouring a blue background for my scene. Nothing fancy, just a quick wash of blue paint on water colour paper. After this was dry I took one of the dies from Delicate Stitches and created a frame on the background and then added a sentiment from the Ornamental Butterflies stamp set.

P1350257c

For the Preppy Flowers I randomly painted yellow, pinks and reds on water colour card stock and die cut the flowers from it. This way the flowers are uniquely coloured in an easy and quick way. Once the flowers were dry I brushed a thin layer of glue on them and sprinkled Distress Rock Candy Glitter on top. Since the glitter is clear you can still see the colours underneath and it gives the flowers a bit of sparkle.

P1350263c

I wanted a feeling of whimsy, like the flowers were swaying in the breeze so I decided to add a layer of vellum flowers behind the first layer and I really like how that turned out.

P1350243c

I figured a field of flowers needed a few fluttering friends so I used the Butterfly Sprinkles dies to add some butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
