Golden Rose
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafters, 

Today I would like to share a fun technique - creating shaped shaker windows with matching dies. You will need a stamp set with matching dies plus heat resistant acetate. I have used the fantastic new Sending Scribbles sets by Poppystamps.

Watch the video tutorial for detailed instructions!

Fairy Ballerina Spinner Card
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafty friends, 

I have been playing with Faerie dies for some time now and it's amazing how many opportunities they provide. They are different sizes and can be used with or without the wings, but I found out that they are also perfect for interactive cards. 

Today I have created a spinner card using two mirror faerie images. But if you only have one of those it will still do for this kind of card - just stick a thread and a pair of wings between the two die cuts! 

Watch the video tutorial below for detailed instructions.

Summer Hello
by Olga Direktorenko

Have you checked out all the new fabulous flower dies by Poppystamps? They are so much fun to play with I couldn't help creating a summer bouquet with them. 

Another clever die is a Halo Hello that consists of a word die cut and a "halo". The halo can be used to create a background/shadow for the word, but I have decided to use a negative space to turn it into a shaker window.

Check out the video tutorial below for the detailed explanation of the process!

Window Display
by Olga Direktorenko

Hello and thanks for stopping  by! I keep on playing with the Faerie dies from Poppystamps May release. Each of them comes with a pair of beautiful wings, but of course they can be used with or without them. 

This time I have used the Faeries to create some dummies to display in a shop window!

Ballet Diorama
by Olga Direktorenko

Poppystamps came out with the beautiful collection of Faerie dies of all sizes. The moment I saw them I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them. Each faerie die has a pair or wings but it can be used with or without them. I have chosen 3 sizes of images to make a ballet scene diorama. It is fun to make and easy to assemble - check out the video tutorial down below this post!
