Be Mine
by Jinny Newlin

Hey, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my hubby's Valentine.

Poppy Be Mine - JinnyNewlin

I started his card by adding a little interest to the Pool Party, cardstock, card face, which had its bottom corners rounded, by rubbing Pumice Stone and Broken China Distress Inks through lattice and heart stencils respectively.  I then popped a white, cardstock Stitched Tunnel Tag up, just right of vertical center, with foam tape.  The tag itself was topped with a piece of watercolor paper, watercolored in shades of blue and speckled with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  The watercolor piece was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with a trio of hearts and topped with the die-cut, black, cardstock Playful Deer Collage, which I white-embossed with a "be mine" sentiment.  I have no idea why the black is photographing as though it is speckled with white spots.  I promise they aren't there in real life.  Grrr!  So frustrating!  Maybe I'd better take a closer look at my camera lens.  It's been keeping pretty busy lately.  Anyway, both the stamped hearts and sentiment came from our playful, Be Mine Penguins stamp set.

The completed tag was then laced with a length of hemp twine and embellished with a length of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and dressed up with a sheer, turquoise, polka dot ribbon, tied in a bow, as well as a turquoise button, laced with a white, string bow.

Our Powell Butterfly, die-cut from Island Indigo cardstock and dressed up with a coat of Clear Wink of Stella, and a trio of wood veneer hearts complete the look.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!

A set of Valentine's Day cards
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5465

 

Hi all.

Today I want to show you a set of cards about love. 

To create this card, I used a big set of dies and stamps from new  Poppystamps release.

As you can see, this time I didn't use watercolor paints. Only plain paper, Memory Box stencils and dies.

All the cards that I've done I donated to charity. 

I wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Thank You for Your Kindness
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a collection of thank yous I sent out for my birthday gifts last month.  Kansas seems to have completely forgotten how to produce snow, and winter really isn't much fun without such.  So, I'm willing the warm weather back with these springtime beauties.

Poppy Floral Stem Collection - JinnyNewlin
 Let's take a look up close and personal.  Shall we?

  Poppy Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by die-cutting the Floral Stem Collage craft die from Coastal Cabana cardstock and its flower, in three layers thick, from Ballet Slippers cardstock.  I then anchored the center of the layered bloom with a soft yellow button, laced with white string; and embellished the petals with a sequin butterfly.

  2.8.17 017

The "thank you for your kindness" sentiment was white-embossed, vertically, along the right edge of the die-cut window, which was backed with clear cardstock.

2.8.17 022
I then machine stitched a white-threaded, double, straight-stitch frame around the prepped piece's outside edges, before framing its backside with foam tape to house the shaker elements.  I couldn't decide whether I wanted to do a double or single, machine-stitched frame; and while the stitching does help anchor the clear cardstock to the backside of the window, a single layer is sufficient.  So, a few of the cards have only a single layer of such.

PLS Single Thank You for Your Kindness - JinnyNewlin
A piece of white cardstock was then adhered to the kraft, cardstock, card face, before adhering the window in place over a healthy dose of heart, Sparkling Clear, and Seaspray sequins, as well as silver seed beads and those sweet, little, white, cardstock, Bunny Hop die cuts.  I just love how cute these tiny die cuts look in a shaker!

Flickering Butterfly

IMG_5205

 

Hi All :)

I know that you are all looking forward for the results of our Blog Blitz. Come back here tomorrow when we will announce winners names.

Today I would like to show  you to my latest inspiration in January.

I made an eco style card. The focal point is a butterfly Flickering Butterfly Collage, which I cut in kraft paper. I painted white paper watercolor in various shades of turquoise color.

This paper is glued between two layers of eco paper. This is the background of my butterfly.

White paper embellished with ornaments - Finial Flourish craft die. 

At the end I added a few sequins and splash sheet of white and turquoise paint.

Grateful Heart
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters! Sue here with a heartfelt thank you card.

P1340898c

For the background I took a piece of card stock and inked it up with Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Picked Raspberry. I ran that through my die cut machine with the Heart Pattern Plate and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. This die is one of my faves from the new release. The pretty pattern adds subtle texture for backgrounds.

P1340912c

I white embossed the row of hearts from the Grateful Heart stamp set onto water colour paper, die cut it and painted the hearts with Twinkling H2O's in gold. Here's a pic showing the lovely metallic shine of the gold.

P1340919c

I decided I wanted to add a mess of white pearl thread behind the hearts. Boy, was that a chore to do! I couldn't seem to control the mess in a somewhat neat way but went with what I had.

The sentiment is the Thank You Channel and was die cut from water colour card stock that I painted with Twinkling H2O's in pink.

P1340903c

The card was finished with the addition of a few sequins.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a crafty day!

Flickering Butterfly
by Sue McRae

Hello all, Sue here with a post featuring the new Flickering Butterfly Collage die. There are so many possibilities with this die!

P1340870c

I started off by colouring a piece of glossy card stock with alcohol inks in purples and blues. I die cut a square using the Pinpoint Square Layers, placed the butterfly die in the centre and sent it through my Big Shot. Then I flicked some gold paint on the butterfly panel.

P1340839c

The alcohol ink piece was adhered behind the butterfly for all the pretty colours to peek through and I adhered this to the card base.

P1340883c

I die cut the Blooming Dotted Border from purple card stock, stamped the sentiment and added a strip of glitter tape.

P1340880c

I added a few black pearls to finish off the card.

Today I'm giving away the Flickering Butterfly Collage die.

Please leave a comment for a chance to win and come back every day during the Blog Blitz to see more new projects and products!

Happy crafting!

By Lezlye Lauterbach

 

 

Welcome Poppystamps Fans!Continuing on with my Love of Valentine's for the Blog Blitz. I have used watercolor paper to cut with the grid collage die. I had imagined this card when I picked this die.

Gridcollage2

 

I watercolored the base using reds, pinks and a touch of orange the brushed on the pinks/reds on the top, die cut piece. Finished it off by adding black ink splatters, because I intended to add a black, white embossed sentiment also from Poppystamps.

The hearts were from the inlay heart die. I also watercolored the white one that I attached to the sentiment. The top piece is mounted with foam squares to add dimension.

Hello again! Hope you are enjoying all the new Poppystamps products and wonderful design team cards!

I used the Freida Curve Die along with the Dotted Curve Die and Grateful Hearts stamp.

 

IMG_5945

Not a very pretty picture but I wanted  to give you an idea of how I cut my layers.

The upper part of the paper is not relevant to the cut ( just a scrap piece of paper) You don't have to have both dies but the extra Dotted Curve Die gives you a few more options.

You can leave the dots in place if you want like on my first blog blitz card or have them out like this card,

it's your choice. If you want to keep the dots in ,  just add some tape to the back of your card to keep them in place .
