Hi there! It's Mona here today to share a mixed media style layout featuring a variety of fabulous products included in the New 2017 Spring Release along with a variety of other Poppystamps products as well as a photo of my sweet daughter Angie. This layout has a textured background that was created using the memory box Texture Chicken Wire stencil and is embellished with beautiful Poppystamps Stitched Bloom Trio flowers, Stitched Butterfly Trio butterflies, Freida Leaf foliage, a Festival Tag, a Garden Lantern and a Scribble Flower Circle:

Here's a few step shots I took along the way:

To create the background, I started with a 12" x 12" piece of watercolor paper. I applied a coat of clear gesso, allowed to dry then to create lots of texture, I used texture paste along with the memory box Texture Chicken Wire Stencil:

Once dry, I applied a thin coat of white gesso:

After the gesso was dry, I randomly applied various colors of paint:

While the paints were drying, I created the embellishments. I applied Distress crackle paint to the die cut Garden Lantern. Once dry, I applied Distress Ink:

To create the flowers, I die cut several Stitched Bloom Trio flowers using watercolor paper then colorized with spray as shown below and paint (not shown):

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed my project today as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Today, I'm sharing a colorful Easter tag I created with the Preppy Flowers, beautiful, open wildflowers perfect for spring! Right off the die cutting machine, the flowers are all aligned in a pretty row on a little grassy hill. But here's an easy tip to make these flowers work just about anywhere!

 

IMG_4238-wm

The Preppy Flowers can be trimmed into individual flower pieces, then mounted with a tiny bit of glue behind the edge of your oval tag, or even in a straight line behind a horizontal border.

You can arrange the Preppy Flowers any way you like, then adhere your Fluffy Bunny with half of a foam pop dot.

You can even add a few flowers to the back of your tag too, giving it a touch of colorful whimsy!

Do you love these Preppy Flowers as much as I do! Simply leave a comment on this post and you might be selected as the lucky winner of this beautiful, steel crafted die!

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.

2.15.17 030

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.

2.15.17 035

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!

love you always
by Mona Pendleton

Hi! It's Mona here today with a heart themed card.

 My card features a fun tag with a heart shaped shaker. To create this card, I created a tag using a Festival Tag die which I die cut a heart shaped window using the Capri Heart die, filled with sequins and beads then layered with another Festival Tag die cut. The fun background was made using the Heart Pattern Plate die.

Elegant Shaker Tags
by Olga Direktorenko

Just can't stop playing with the new Stitched Tunnel Tags!

To make this set of tags I have combined some dies from the new release with some older ones. Butterflies are starring in every project - it's amazing that you can create so many designs just by changing the background slightly and adding one or two new elements to each tag! 

The beginning to end VIDEO TUTORIAL is also here to watch!

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.

1.9.17 084

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.

1.9.17 077

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

Majestra Heart
by Irena Kowalczyk

Irena here, with a card featuring some new products from the 2017 Poppystamps Collection!
I hope you've enjoyed all the blog posts this week and have left comments on each post for a chance to win a prize!

Bb2p

Bb6p

To create this card I die cut white cardstock paper and cut out decorative side of the new die Eyelet Stitches.
The main panel I used the beautiful die Majestra Heart. And I cut in two colors.
Then I added a nice sentiment with a new set of stamps.

Bb5p

Cutting die consists of two elements, but you can also use only one - like here on my the tag in the box with sweets.

Bb3p

Bb1p

Certainly there are many other ideas for the use of die MAJESTRA HEART, and I hope you like it.

You have until midnight US EST January 25 to leave a comment on each and every post that you want to enter. Winners will announced on this blog on January 28.

Hugs!
