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.

 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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

1.9.17 057
A die-cut, from white cardstock, Scribble Thank You, adhered in the bottom center of the design, completes the look.

1.9.17 060

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 .

Inlay Heart
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone, Sue here with a blog blitz post featuring Valentine's Day goodies and products from the new 2017 release.

P1340800c

Today I'm using the Inlay Heart die as the focal image of my card. I took water colour paints in yellow, orange, pink and red and covered a sheet of water colour paper with no particular plan. Just some fun messy painting. Then I die cut the heart from this piece and and inlaid it into the yellow card stock.

P1340813c

I took one of the dies from the Delicate Stitches set and placed it below the heart, leaving enough room to add my sentiment later. I ran it through my Big Shot and it left a pretty pattern in the card stock. I also decided to embellish the two top corners using this die. The Delicate Stitches set contains three dies which don't cut through the paper, they cut the pattern into the paper. Great for adding pretty details anywhere on your project.

P1340811c

My last step was to die cut the Scribble Thank You from the yellow card stock and then die cut it from black card stock and inlay it.

I am giving away the Inlay Heart die to one lucky person who leaves a comment.

I used my Peerless Watercolors from Birch Press Design, love these watercolors for a rich vibrant color! I wanted the background to be my focal point so I added the Freida Curve in white only .

It is lightly stamped in a softer color ink, using a sentiment from the new Grateful Hearts Clear Stamp from Poppystamps

I wanted to show you what the front side of the panel looked like, much soother but for some reason I like the way the back looked with more of an outline of each cut.

Mint Butterfly
by Jeanne Jachna

Seafoam-Butterfly-Two
I know you were expecting a holiday card right?  Sometimes the unexpected can be delightful!   I've been playing more and more with watercolors and wanted to try for something really soft this time.   I started by painting a really loose wash on some card stock.  I love the mint color that I achieved!  
Seafoam-butterfly
I cut the Spinning Circles on the watercolor panel.  I wanted to keep the Bellina Flora die cut the same color as the background so I cut it from the same watercolor paper.  
Seafoam-Butterfly-Three
I chose a small sentiment that would fit in the lower corner of the panel.  The Thank  You from the Flower Patch Clear Stamp Set was the perfect shape and size. 
Seafoam-Butterfly-One
I layered the panel over a card - again made from the same watercolor paper.   I made sure the inside of the card was the smooth side of the watercolor paper so I will have an easy time stamping a sentiment inside or writing a personal note.   I wanted to show those beautiful Spinning Circles off so I adhered it with adhesive foam tape so it's popped up.
Seafoam-Butterfly-Four
I'm glad I tried something new and am so happy with how this turned out!   What will you make today?

Thankful Season
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3762-wm

Hello Everyone!

November has arrived, and along with cooler temperatures and crunchy leaves, comes a wonderful season where we can be thankful for our blessings. Today, I'm sharing a card I created with my Dad in mind. I think the little Prancing Deer adds a little masculine touch to the autumn scene.

IMG_3758-wm
I love everything about Autumn, and that means autumn cards too! I started with the Honeycomb Layers from Memory Box, then added Majestic Maple, Leafy Breeze, Prancing Deer, Pine Twig, and Jumbled Thanks!

Take a look at our beautiful collection of fall themed stamps and dies, then move right on to the holidays! We've got a terrific challenge going on now too, Plaid is Rad!
