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!

Hi there , Marybeth here today ! I hope you enjoyed the new products and Mini Blog Blitz!

Today I used the new Stitched Butterfly Trio , Memory box Stitched Hexagon Layers ( love those!) and Into the Words clear stamp set.

Fullsizeoutput_3f9 Watermark copy

Im sharing a card with a design I made a few years ago, its been a while since I curled any blooms or butterflies.

Very simple as you have seen some of the other Design Team members already do this technique. Simply roll the die cut with any small item , I used a crochet hook.

 

Fullsizeoutput_3fd

I used a brush to blend some inks onto a piece of card stock . I think the brush has a softer look and I have more control of the even-ness!

Fullsizeoutput_3fc

I used two colors of ink to give e a bit more detail to each die cut. After the butterflies were cut out I brushed along the sides to cover up the white and give a bit more color to each edge.

Embossing background- step by step
by Ilona Zbieg

IMG_5520

Hi Everyone!

Today I want to show you how to create in a simple and fast way an elegant background.

We need:

  • Memory Box stencils
  • die cutting machine, e.g. Big Shot
  • embossing mat

What we need to do, step by step:

  1. We cut paper the same size as our stencil.
  2. We make layers: mat, paper, stencil.
  3. We put everything  into the machine. We turn everything and pull out and now we have a beautiful background.
  4. We make a project using our new background. Recently I did delicate Easter card.

As you can see, even without embossing folders, we can do embossing background.

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!

Stitched Bloom Trio
by Irena Kowalczyk

Hello, Poppystamps friends.
One of the newest die sets is the Stitched Bloom Trio.
I used them in today's card.

T7p

T13p

I made a short tutorial on how to make a flower.
I used a foam Foamiran and Stitched Bloom Trio dies.

T1p.tutorial-nn

3. The foam acts on the hot iron, causes that it becomes easy formatting.
4. When flowers begin to shrink a little, fingers need to be turn.
5. Then gently to form flowers.
6. Put all that hot glue.

When the flower ready, time for the creation of the card.

Leaves from the collection "Delicate Peony clear stamp" Birch Press Design, stamping and added powder embossing.
Then I cut out.

Love You Always
by Olga Direktorenko

This masculine Valentine's Day Tag is made entirely with the dies and stamps from Poppystamps January Release

Because I have added so many layers the tag feels like it's made of chipboard or plastic. I also like the fact that it can be used as home decor.

You can find the instructions on how to make it in the VIDEO TUTORIAL down below:
