Summer Sunflowers
by Jeanne Jachna

Sunflowers-Three
I hope you're having a great day!  My garden is coming along nicely!  I'm already seeing plants sprouting up where seeds were planted.  I can't imagine a garden without a few sunflowers.    I'm always amazed at how tall they grow - taller than me!!  They're always so bright and cheery and can't help but make me smile.  We try to save some of the heads filled with seeds to put out for the birds in the winter!
Sunflowers-Seven
I made mine with the Ragged Daisy die.  I cut 8 sets of petals for each flower.
Sunflowers-Six
You can arrange them as you like, but here's how I did it.  I started by creating a box in the center of four petal die cuts.  Next I topped the box with two more petals in the center of the box, and again, two more sets of petals in a different direction so the circle is full. 
Sunflowers-Five
The background was created with Peerless Watercolors.  I started with a simple wash of Alice Blue and added dabs of Cobalt Blue and let them bloom for more color.  When that was dry I splattered white ink all over the background.
Sunflowers-Four
To add more depth to the die cut flower petals I dabbed distress ink in Wild Honey to the outer edges of each petal.
Sunflowers
Since the stacked flowers are pretty thick and the center is a little hollow from the space created by the outer layers I adhered the center of the flower with adhesive foam tape. 
Sunflowers-Two
The scribble thank you makes a simple sentiment for this cheery card.
Sunflowers-One
I hope you have a beautiful day!

Blooming Poppy Thanks
by Nancy Penir

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

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!

May Blog Blitz: Large Nimble Faerie
by Jinny Newlin

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  It's Jinny here this morning, sharing a few new goodies from our May 2017 Release.  Enjoy!

Poppy Thank You Fairy Much - JinnyNewlinI started this card by watercoloring a scrap of watercolor paper, moving from left to right, in a rainbow of shades.  Once it was dry, I spritzed over it with Pearl mist for a little shimmer and shine and die-cut our new Floribunda Collage florals out of it.  I then backed it with a piece of white cardstock and anchored a split panel of white, glitter paper to either side of it with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  More white-threaded, straight, machine stitches secure a vertical strip of vellum, which was white-embossed with the "THANK YOU fairy MUCH" sentiment from our new Fairy Greetings stamp set.

5.12.17 023A length of white string was then wrapped, vertically, around the prepped piece, between the connection of the vellum strip and everything else and tied, in a bow, near the top edge of the prepped piece, before the latter was popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape.

5.12.17 029I then die-cut our new Large Nimble Faerie from white cardstock; popped her body up with foam tape; and applied three shades of glitter to her wings, before adhering them to her back.  A sprinkling of clear, sequin blossoms completes the look.

5.12.17 032Be sure to stop back by every day through next Sunday, May 21, 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, May Release product is being randomly given away on EACH AND EVERY Poppystamps' blog post.  You have until Monday, May 22, 2017, to do so.  Winners will be announced, on the Poppystamps blog, the following Wednesday, May 24, 2017.  I've got that fabulous Large Nimble Faerie craft die, that you see in action above, to giveaway today.

1835

That's it, from me, for today; but there truly is so much left to see.  You simply don't want to miss out.  Have fun!  Good luck with ALL the glorious prizes; and have a wonderful weekend, Poppystamps friends!

Hi there! It's Mona here today with a thank you card to share.

My card features a fun butterfly shaped shaker. To create this card, I used one of the Stitched Butterfly Trio die to cut a butterfly window on a memory box Stitched Rectangle Layer. I filled the shaker with sequins then layered with another Stitched Rectangle Layer. I added a Pretty Stitches border.

The fun background was created using the Heart Pattern Plate and the sentiment is from the Hope and Thanks stamp set.

Scribble Flower Thanks
by Sue McRae

Hello crafty friends! Sue here with a clean and simple card for you.

P1350200c

I started off by making my background panel using water colour paper and very loosely painting it with blues and purples. While this dried I die cut the Scribble Flower Circle from blue metallic card stock.

Next I created the frame for the card by die cutting the Thanks Corner from white card stock.

P1350225c

When the background panel was dry I die cut the Atessa Collage from the bottom right corner. I didn't want all the little pieces from the die cut to come out so I used an old warpy cutting plate with my Big Shot and this prevented the die from cutting all the way through the paper, leaving all the bits in place and easy to adhere to the card base.

P1350215c

I attached the thanks frame next and then the wreath but felt like it needed something else so I die cut a few flowers from silver glitter paper from the Daisy Cluster and adhered them around the wreath.

P1350222c

To finished off I added a few silver embellishments.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Florisima Trail
by Sue McRae

Welcome, I hope you've been following along with us this past week with the blog blitz we have going on. There's another week left of new products and fabulous inspiration by the design team.

P1350046c

Today I'm showcasing the Florisima Trail die. When I saw this die the first thing I thought of was using it to create a butterfly trail and that's exactly what I did.

Out of white linen card stock I die cut the Florisima Trail so that it would start at the butterfly and end off of the paper. I then flicked gold paint across this panel.

P1350106c

I took a piece of white card stock and created an inky rainbow using Distress Inks and gave it a quick spray with Perfect Pearls. I adhered this rainbow piece behind the opening in the white panel and inlaid the flowery trail right on top.

I die cut the largest butterfly from the Stitched Butterfly Trio from white card stock and inked it up with Distress Inks in blue and purple and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. Then I die cut the butterfly three times from black card stock and adhered all the butterfly layers together by adding adhesive to only the centre of the butterfly so the wings could be fluffed.

P1350080c

The butterfly and Scribble Thank You were adhered to the panel and that was attached to a black card base. I finished off the card with some gems.

P1350072c

If you would like a chance to win the Florisima Trail die, just leave a comment on this post.

Make sure to come back every day during the blog blitz and comment on each post for your chance to win the featured die.

Happy crafting!

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!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful rest of your week! Jinny Floral Signature copy

Happy Hearts
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone! Sue here with a heart themed thank you card.

P1340933c

Do you see all the pretty swirly colours on the background? Well, that was done using alcohol inks on glossy paper. I attached this piece to a white card base.

From white linen card stock I die cut the Happy Hearts Channel and then used the Eyelet Stitches to add a decorative edge along the top and bottom.

P1340946c

I adhered the white panel onto the inky background and added a thin strip of black card stock along the top, two strips of the alcohol inked piece close to the Eyelet Stitches and a glittery strip to anchor the sentiment.

P1340940c

To finish off I added the Spectacular Thank You sentiment and a couple of glittered hearts.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a crafty day!
