Valentine Fun
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-5

Good Morning Friends! It is Dana here again today sharing a set of Valentine's Day cards with you all. 

SavingPNG-3

I started my card by using the Grid Heart Frame Die. I ran it through my die cutting machine two times, once with white cardstock and once with glittered cardstock.

I then attached my Grid Heart Frame to my A2 card base and inlaid all the little hearts back into the frame with liquid glue. 

IMG_6250

Next, I cut a piece of white cardstock .75 inches wide and covered the third row of hearts. * I did this to allow my sentiment to stand out and not be distracted by the hearts showing through to my sentiment. I then used the Valentine's Fun stamp set and stamped my sentiment onto a piece of vellum. I wrapped this around my card panel and attached it to the back with a piece of tape. 

SavingPNG-4

I just love how I was able to create two cards with two passes through my die cutting machine.

SavingPNG-6

I am loving this die! I can't wait to create a rainbow of inlaid hearts in my next card. 

Thanks for joining me today. I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Sending Hugs and Kisses
by Marybeth Lopez

D9610235-0560-47FC-9892-80E447548414_1_201_a

Hello and Happy Weekend to you all! Marybeth here today with a card sending Hugs and Kisses ( this will go to on of my granddaughters ) I used the new Poppystamps Floral Lace Heart Split Border craft die along with Poppystamps  Valentine's Fun clear stamp.

A5C62F56-9C98-4452-99B7-F42D3BED13CE_1_201_a

I blended ink just behind the heart, I kinda made a mask with the negative of this die , as you can see on the right side of the heart. When taken away, the only blended ink will be under the delicate heart, simply done with out making a mask. On the left side you don't have to worry because it will be covered up with the Floral Lace Heart Split Border

32F6BBF9-07A4-43A2-AD54-23BEF8F0B8B4_1_201_a

See above, when the negative of the die is taken away all you see is the original watercolored panel.

B25D731C-091E-4E59-A25C-5A98B0BD5D43_1_201_a

I love this 3D Embossing Folder from memory box called :Heart Bouquet EF1006 Heart Bouquet  . It's so easy to use ... place envelope in folder on top of one plate and run it through your die machine.

3235755F-63E1-42E3-8A2B-2D33088EC463_1_201_a

After I was almost done with my card I decided to add two more layers to the top of my card, for more dimension.

D1ED1FF1-3CCA-408C-A3C9-CC7F7F02E725_1_201_a

You cant really see in the photo but I also went over the lacy part of the heart and used a shimmer pen.

I layered two sentiments on top of each other to create this , I wanted it to fill up the lower portion of the panel.

Thanks for the visit to day and God bless you.

Graceful Heart Frame Inlay
by Jeanne Jachna

Graceful-Heart-Frame-Three

Hi friends!  It's Jeanne here today and I'm absolutely loving the Poppystamps new Valentine's release.  I sure hope you are too!  Our blog blitz is over but there's still time to enter to win some of the new dies for yourself.  You have until January 19 to go back and leave a comment on all the posts you wish to enter.  If you're a fan of instagram we have giveaways there too.  On Instagram you can tag a friend and if chosen you BOTH win the new die.  
Graceful-Heart-Frame-Four
Craft dies are hands down my favorite craft item.  I love the clean crisp lines, and every time I cut one it's just magic to me! 
Graceful-Heart-Frame-One
I cut the Graceful Heart Frame die from white card stock and used up lots of colorful card stock scraps to fill in the die cut openings.   If you look close you'll see I tried to soften the color for an ombre effect like you see with ink blending.  The turquoise at the bottom of the card is much darker than the inlay cuts at the top in soft aqua. I added a few different shades of green card stock for the foliage too. 
Graceful-Heart-Frame
The Love Flourish craft die fits perfectly inside the heart die cut opening for a simple sentiment.   I think it would be fun to add a photograph in the opening for an anniversary card.  The stamped sentiment is from the Valentine Fairies stamp set.  The simple type font contrasts well with the fanciful Love Flourish.

Graceful-Heart-Frame-Two
This would also be a great card for our monthly challenge "From the Heart".  Link up your designs for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the store. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!   Hugs!

A Challenge Reminder: Use a Heart
By Nancy Penir

DSC_0065

Hi and welcome to a reminder that there's a challenge going on the Poppystamps Blog: use a heart in your project. Did you enjoy the Blitz? So many wonderful new dies in the Valentine Collection. And wonderful ideas from our design team. Hope you're among the winners!

DSC_0067_wm

The new Floral Lace Heart Split Border was my starting point for my card. I chose glitter paper in black and white for drama, with a bit of red for added impact. the die itself cuts the beautiful lacy heart, like butter, I might add, and the image is placed over the black. Easy Breezy! 

DSC_0070

I cut my Love Flourish die in red glitter paper, backed it in silver, and glued it to the front. I punched the lacy heart up by adding red rhinestones to the center of the little florals.

DSC_0068

I just love getting the most from my dies by using some of the incredible papers on the market! I think someone special will instantly know they are loved when they get this card! 

Hope you're playing along with the challenge. We all love seeing what you create!

Valentine's blog blitz - Love & Hugs
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.57878356454E12

Happy new year, Poppy fans! We are continuing our valentine's blog blitz and I'm sharing 2 cards today showcasing the beautiful Grid heart frame die. Although the Danish flourists have long adapted the valentine's tradition, I myself have not. So instead I made cards of love and hugs.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For the first card I ink blended a background with pink oxide inks and cut the frame 4 times from white cardstock. I layered the frames and glued them on top of the pink base.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut and colored the Whittle panda. To avoid getting my black marker all over the panda I placed a piece of cardstock behind the eye.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut the envelope, heart tag and love outline letters from white cardstock - the shadow from black cardstock. I ink blended the tag and also the little cut out heart. I stamped the sentiments and tugged the panda into the envelope so it looks like he's holding the tag.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

Both the envelope and love outline are popped up with craft foam and the panda itself is popped up as well. I ran over the tiny heart...
Watermark1.57878356454E12

... as well as the letters with a clear sparkle pen and then glossy accents for a shiny dimensional look. Isn't it pretty!?
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For a final touch I added some clear sequins.

IMG_20200112_000701

The other card is all about hedge-hugs. Here I also ink blended the base with oxide inks but this time I threw in a little purple as well.
IMG_20200112_000701

I cut and colored the Whittle hedgehog. Once again I stuck a piece of cardstock behind the ear to ensure not getting my light and dark colors mixed.
IMG_20200112_000701

I left the hugs heart white but popped it up and backed it with a piece of cardstock inked with the same color as the base.
IMG_20200112_000701

Although the light makes it a little hard to see the Grid heart frame is heat embossed with a pretty soft pink and sparkly embossing powder. Sooo gorgeous!
IMG_20200112_000701

And here's the finished card. I hope I have inspired you. But wait... the best is yet to come! You could win the Grid heart frame used on these cards.

Valentine's Blog Blitz: Scribble Daisy Heart Frame
by Sue McRae

IMG_0373c

Welcome to another day of our Blog Blitz! Sue here with a sparkly Valentine's Day card using the new Scribble Daisy Heart Frame. Keep on reading to see how you could win this die.

What I love about this die, is that it can be used throughout the year for many occasions, not just Valentine's Day. This die would be great for a wedding, anniversary, birthday or Mother's Day. Lots of possibilities!

IMG_0337c

I started by die cutting the frame 3 times from 80lb Neenah Solar White card stock and once from blue glitter card stock. I adhered the 3 layers of white card stock together and hand cut a piece of white card stock to which  I glued the frame to give it a backing.

IMG_0346c

Next I used glitter glue in pink, yellow and orange and squeezed the colours into each petal of the flowers. When doing this I filled the petal right up to the top because as the glitter glue dries it sinks. I didn't have any glitter glue to do the background of the frame so I used the blue glitter card stock and paper pieced those in.

IMG_0356c

There's a new beautiful 3D embossing folder out with leaves, flowers and a heart. Before running the folder through my die cutting machine I sprayed the card stock (80lb Neenah Solar White) with a bit of water, this helps to soften the paper fibers so you get a deeper impression and the card stock won't crack.

IMG_0371c

I die cut the Love Heart from green glitter card stock and adhered that on top of the Daisy Frame heart. 

IMG_0372c

The sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder that has little flecks of coloured powder in it. You can also really see all the detail of the embossing folder.

IMG_0383c

Everything was adhered to a white card base (110lb Neenah Solar White).

IMG_0362

Now it's time for the giveaway.

Hello, Nadine here with a Valentine's Day Card for the 2020 Valentine's Blog Blitz! Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to find out how you can win some dies.
