 Hi there ! I hope you are enjoying the Poppystamps Blog Blitz !

As soon as the new dies came back in July I sat down to make this shaker card just for fun , I liked it so much I thought I should use it for the blog blitz!

Download

My top layer is watercolor paper to add a bit of texture. I added a layer of acetate under the second layer of paper, then added glass beads for the shaker.

I cut the word Merry, from the new Merry Frame and the word Christmas, from the new Christmas frame. I love that I now have an easy "Merry Christmas" sentiment to add to any of my Christmas cards. I sure need to get busy , I usually have about half  of my Christmas cards completed  by now.

Fullsizeoutput_570  Watermark copy

I used Poppystamps dies: Swaying Birch, Bravern Branch and Urban Skyline Collage.

Will a few simple steps you can have a clean look with a bit of detail ! My kinda card :)

Fullsizeoutput_592

This is what the back side of the card looks like. Simply add some foam tape to the back then place on the panel of your choice. 

I cut two Bravern Branches, cut them apart, then placed them where I wanted to add leaves to the Swaying Birch die.

  Simple, right!  Last minute I did change the design a bit by placing the skyline die more to the right of the card so that I had more room for the leaves on the tree. 

Thank you for the visit today!

Happy Easter
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with an Easter card I created with a few of the new dies.

P1350125c

I started with a light blue card base and then die cut an oval from a darker blue card stock using the Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers. This way I could place my die cuts as I went along to see how they fit into the scene.

I die cut the Swaying Birch from white wood grain card stock that I inked along the edges with grey ink and a finger dauber, this helps to add some depth to the tree.

P1350135c

For the Easter eggs I die cut the Easter Egg Party from aqua, yellow and pink card stock and mixed up the paper piecing for some colour variation.

P1350131c

I adhered the eggs beneath the tree and added grass using the Easter Excitement die set.

P1350150c

Next I added the sentiment by curving it along the oval shape. To finish off this spring scene I die cut a couple of butterflies and a bird.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

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)

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!

Apple Butter Gift Tags
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing a couple more of my apple butter gift tags.  For the first one, I turned our Bauble Tree Background die into a tag itself; and for the second, I had lots of fun creating a watercolor scene.

Poppystamps Apple Butter Gift Tags - JinnyNewlinLet's get up close and personal with the first.

Poppystamps Bauble Tree Gift Tag - JinnyNewlinI started this tag by die-cutting the Bauble Tree Background base from Basic Black cardstock and topping it with a die-cut, from silver, glitter cardstock, Merry Bauble Tree.  It's bottom edge was then decked out with a silver-embossed, on a strip of black cardstock, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape.

12.10.16 020A die-cut, from white, glitter cardstock, Ava Snowflake dresses up its middle...

12.10.16 022
and its top was simply punched with a small hole through which to thread white string, which was tied, in a bow, after being laced through a black button and embellished with lots of fabulous, color-coordinating ribbons and trims, tied in bows themselves.

12.10.16 025I used our largest Festival Tags die as a foundation for the second.

Poppystamps Watercolor Gift Tag - JinnyNewlinIt was watercolored and speckled in shades of aqua and turquoise.  I then die-cut the Winter Pine from textured, Garden Green cardstock.  Before popping it out of the die, I sponged it up with VersaMark ink to emboss the layers of snow with white powder.  It was then popped up with foam tape, just as the deer, which was die-cut from Soft Suede cardstock, was.  I couldn't help but give the deer a little, red, rhinestone nose, before splattering everything with Titanium White acrylic paint.

12.10.16 033The "the most wonderful time of the year" sentiment was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, along the vertical right edge of the tag.

12.10.16 014

Before the tag was laced, through a punched hole, surrounded with a die-cut, Crumb Cake cardstock ring, and tied in a bow, another scrumptious, white, glitter, cardstock Ava Snowflake die cut was added, to the tree, to complete the look.

12.10.16 016That covers things, for today, Poppystamps' friends.  Thanks so much for visiting us, and have a terrific Tuesday!

Bauble Tree
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a really quick, clean and simple Christmas card.

P1340559c

I used the Bauble Tree die to make a fun and modern shaker card.

I started by die cutting the Bauble Tree Background from white card stock, then cutting the Bauble Tree from black card stock. The black piece will be paper pieced into the triangle cut out.

P1340583c

For some added colour  I took a piece of paper and swirled some green and blue paints on it and used that for the background of the tree. I added a bunch of stars and hexagon shaped sequins for the shaker elements and adhered everything together.

P1340571c

I used a sentiment from the Christmas Greetings set and stamped it on all sides of the tree and finished off with a yellow glittered star.

P1340570c

There are a lot of possibilities with this Bauble Ornament die, I think it's a great one to have in your stash!

Thanks for visiting with me today!

From All of Us
by Jinny Newlin

Hey, y'all!  I trust you're all having a great week so far.  It's Jinny here again today, sharing a playful, watercolored card, using a couple of darling stamp sets from the 2016 Holiday Release.  These little critters have been calling my name since the first time I laid eyes on them.  Enjoy!  Poppy - From All of Us - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping the "merry christmas from all of us" sentiment, as well as all the critters, snowflakes, and Christmas-themed accessories, in Jet Black ink, on a piece of watercolor paper.

10.10.16 033
I then sat back and had fun watercoloring the entire piece and detailing it with Glossy Accents and Dazzling Diamonds.  Once it was dry, it was framed with Real Red cardstock, as well as white-threaded, straight, machine stitching and wrapped with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow, before being popped off the surface, of the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.

10.10.16 029
Super simple, and perfect for mailing.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday, Poppystamps friends!
