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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
