I took this picture before the Golssy Accents had a chance to completely dry.

I added Yosemite to my tag because this card is designed with our Yosemite trips in mind.

In the photo above I wanted to show you how you can add fun foam even with the scraps you have that are not one whole piece . I just used my tape runner and cut the pieces to fit the panel . This is how I raise most of my cards or I use a full piece of fun foam. The nice thing a bout fun foam to raise the panel is that you can still stamp on it if you decide to later.( something I do often)

Happy Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today; and I'm so excited to be back, sharing a project, showcasing more of what our January 2017 Release has to offer!  This one made it to my brother-in-law, for his birthday, late last week.  Enjoy!

Poppy Happy Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in various shades of green.  I then speckled it with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before using the Happy Birthday Tag craft die to remove its center.  I then went back and filled in a portion of that center with a separate, Basic Black, cardstock, Happy Birthday Tag die cut.  The entire piece was then backed with a sheet of clear cardstock to create the window, which was filled in with a variety of sequins, seed beads, and a number of cardstock, Tiny Feathers die cuts.

For the back of the window, I used a plain piece of white cardstock so as not to compete with everything else that was already going on.  Black-threaded, straight, machine stitching secures all the layers together.  The entire piece was then popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape and dressed up with a double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, embellished with a black, gingham bow, as well as a black button, laced with teal twine, tied in a bow.

Thanks, as always, for humbling us with a visit!  Have a blessed last day of January, and we'll see you next month!  Hugs!

Scribble Thank You
by Jinny Newlin

Afternoon, y'all!  It's Jinny here today to continue our Valentine Blog Blitz, in celebration of the January 2017 Release, with a beautiful, all-occasion thank you.

Poppy Butterfly Thank You - JinnyNewlin
I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in shades of green and purple.  I then speckled it with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before using the new, Tulisa Collage craft die to die-cut its center.  I then backed it with a piece of white, glitter cardstock, before securing everything, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches, to the white, cardstock, card face.  The Corden Butterfly was die-cut from a piece of watercolor paper, prepped in the same way as the background itself with the exception of using different shades of watercolor.  I then topped it with a die-cut, Pacific Point, cardstock Powell Butterfly and secured it, just at its center, in the top center of the card face, with silver-threaded, messy, machine stitches.  A little foam tape, tucked under the wings themselves, ensures they will never lie flat.

A die-cut, from white cardstock, Scribble Thank You, adhered in the bottom center of the design, completes the look.

Young Fox Pair
by Jinny Newlin

Afternoon, Poppystamps friends!  It's Jinny here today to show off more of our fabulous, new products from the January 2017 Release.  I hope you've already stopped by to check it out!  I've got a "love"ly, little number, boasting not one, but five, new craft dies, along with one, new stamp set, to share with you all.  Enjoy!

Poppy Love You Always - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper in shades of blue and green and speckling it with those same watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  I then die-cut various layers of that watercolored piece with the Stitched Cloudline craft die to create the sky background.  Its bottom edge was then decked out with a strip of Always Artichoke cardstock, die-cut with our new, Freida Curve craft die.  The heart was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die-cut, which had been watercolored and splattered using the same technique as the background; given a little shine with Clear Wink of Stella; and tucked in behind the Freida Curve branches with foam tape.  The Young Fox Pair were die-cut from Cajun Craze cardstock, ink distressed, and tucked into the scene with foam tape.

1.9.17 040

The Swaying Birch was die-cut from Crumb Cake cardstock.  I used a little, Titanium White acrylic paint to give its edges texture, before tucking it in behind the far left edge of the heart and overhanging the top edge of the scene.  The "love you always" sentiment, from Grateful Heart, was white-embossed on a hand-cut, Basic Black, cardstock pennant and adhered, with foam tape, flush against the right edge of the design.

1.9.17 043

The entire prepped piece was then framed with both white cardstock and black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  Before popping it off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape, I wrapped the top of it with a length of Baker's Twine, tied, in a bow, near its left edge, to complete the look.

1.9.17 047

Be sure to stop back by every day, TWICE a day, through Monday, January 23, 2017, to see what my talented teammies have cooked up, using all the new goodies, just for your viewing pleasure.  AND don't forget to leave lots of love as you visit; because a new, January Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Wednesday, January 25, 2017, to do so.  Winners will be announced, on the Poppystamps blog, the following Saturday, January 28, 2017.  I've got the darling, Young Fox Pair craft die, that you see in action above, to giveaway today.

I'll be back with more from this release next week.  Until then, the rest of the Poppystamps gals have plenty more inspiration coming your way.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!

Warm Winter Wishes Gift Cards
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, friends!  It's Jinny here today with a quartet of gift-card-wielding, Christmas cards for some of my nieces and nephews.  This is the first year I've turned to gift cards for the little ones, but I never know what to get them, especially being as we never get to see them and don't even know what they have or like.  Matter of fact, I haven't even yet met three of the four of them from my hubby's side of the family.  Then, in the past, when we haven't heard if the gifts were even liked or appreciated, well, it just makes it easier to send gift cards and let them pick out exactly what they want themselves.  At least, then, I'll be assured our precious dollars weren't wasted.  Plus, Poppystamps' Tucked Corner Tag die sure makes the delivery of gift cards ever so fun!

Poppystamps Warm Christmas Wishes Gift Cards - JinnyNewlinThey're all pretty much made the same, so I'll just take you through the making of one.

Poppystamps Warm Foxy Wishes Gift Card - JinnyNewlinI started by watercoloring and splatting a piece of watercolor paper in shades of aqua, turquoise, and green.  I then speckled it with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once that was dry, I used the Winter Snowflakes stencil to add a little texture with modeling paste.  While that was drying, I stamped a strip of vellum, in Jet Black ink, with the "WARM CHRISTMAS WISHES" sentiment and anchored it, as well as the watercolored piece itself, to the white, cardstock, card face, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  Before sealing up the far left edge of the vellum strip with more silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching, I tucked a handful of Sparkling Clear and silver star sequins in behind it.

12.12.16 017Our Tucked Corner Tag was then die-cut from white, glitter cardstock; punched with a simple hole in its top; laced with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow; popped off the surface of the card face with foam tape; and embellished with a textured Garden Green cardstock,  Holly Leaf Branch die cut.  Its center, too, was filled in with a Barnes and Noble gift card.

12.12.16 020Finally, I stamped the little fox on watercolor paper; watercolored her; die-cut her out; dressed her up with a little stamped, die-cut, and watercolored scarf; and popped her up, with foam tape, in the bottom left corner of the tag.

12.12.16 023The fox was then swapped out for the deer, otter, and cat, each individually dressed for winter, respectively.  While it's not showing up super good in these photos, they were also detailed with Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

I couldn’t resist adding these two darling Playful Fawns, I cut them once with golden glitter paper from

the craft store then cut one more time using the thin cardboard that came with the paper. 

The white layer has a few leaves that I cut off so it would not hide the darling fawns.

Warm Christmas Wishes
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a card, boasting a paper door all dressed up for the holidays.  So, let's get right to it.

Poppystamps Warm Christmas Wishes - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by embossing vertical grooves, into a wide strip of Oatmeal cardstock, to resemble bead-board and topping it with a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  A strip of vellum, stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "WARM CHRISTMAS WISHES" sentiment was carefully held in place near the bottom of the prepped piece, as all three paper bits were then anchored, onto a white, cardstock, card face, with brown-threaded, straight, machine stitches and their edges distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks.

11.14.16 045

The door was Cameo-cut from Crumb Cake cardstock; distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, as well as a little, Titanium White acrylic paint; backed with a piece of white cardstock, which had been coated with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks, rubbed through the Winter Scattered Flakes stencil; and adhered, tucked under the vellum, sentiment strip, in the center of the card face.  Our Home for the Holidays Wreath was then die-cut from Garden Green, Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, and Ballet Slippers cardstocks, as well as vellum, and stacked one on top of the other, while tucking each limb, leaf, and berry into the other, until it was full and fluffy and perfectly fit to hang on the door.  I also weaved in a few Always Artichoke, cardstock, Pine Twig die cuts.

11.14.16 049

It was then topped with a length of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow, and embellished with a lone pearl, backed with a Baker's Twine bow, to complete the look.

Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit, Poppystamps friends!  Be blessed!

Circa and Stitched Mitten Square
by Marybeth Lopez

DSC_0261mittens

 Hi there ! I have a few cards to share with you in the next few days. First up I am using my wonderful 

Circa A, B, and C from Birch Press Design. I so love that set!  

DSC_0267mittens

 I found that the sweet little , Stitched Mitten Square fit very nicely inside the center of this card. 

DSC_0274mittens

I think I will be using this card for a babies first Christmas or just Christmas . I may stamp on on the outside when I decide.

I like to wait to stamp until I know for sure who or for what the card will be used.

I find it saves time when I need a card .

 

Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great week!
