Hello Birthday Girl
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! I hope to provide you with some inspiration using dies, stencil and glimmer paste. I have used several Poppystamps dies to create this one of a kind card. Today I have a Very Special card that I have made for my Mother  for her 79th Birthday, she has Dementia and I am her Caregiver Daizypoppy

First I created my background panel, using a stitched oval Memory Box CO die and a Memory Box stencil (diapers) to push the Nuvo Glimmer paste through. I used a Purple shade. Allow some dry time before removing the stencil, however do not let it dry completely.

Oval stencil on a 4.25 x 5.5 panel for stencil mask. Then add the stencil and line up with another panel of the same size, you will cut it down to 3.75 x 5 after it's done and dried.


Spread the Nuvo Glimmer Paste through the stencil with a spatula, allow to semi dry and remove stencil before it drys completely.



I used pop dots behind the daisies for dimension. Glitter Glue to flower centers.

Love your card and hope your Mom's birthday is festive.

I am so determined to learn more about mixed media...the glimmer paste is really special.

Great project!!! TFS

P.S. Love the flower die...it went on my wish list as soon as I first saw it.

This is a stunning card. I love the Daisy die and it pops over that great glimmer paste background. My heart goes out to you for your mom's dementia. My hubby had that and it was so hard to see him with that disease. Happy birthday to her and big, warm hugs to you.

This is such a beautiful card. I appreciate your different techniques with use of dies and products.

Hi Lezlye, Happy Birthday to your Mom, and she will adore this card !! I love the colours, I love the glimmer paste through the stencil, I absolutely adore the daisies, they are stunning. It's a definite 'Wow' card.

Happy Birthday to your Mom! She is so blessed to have you. That glimmer paste is yummy. Gorgeous card!

Beautiful card. I love the glittery paste. I am also wishing you much strength as the caregiver for your mom. I hope that you find happiness of the little moments you get to spend with your mom regardless of what is happening that day.

Lovely card!
Remember to take care of yourself as well! Being a caregiver is a very hard task! My thoughts are with you!

Your card is amazing, Lezlye! Happy Birthday Mom! I understand how hard it is looking after someone with dementia, I am my husband's caregiver. The background is the perfect, beautiful, glittery compliment to the daisies. The daisies pop off the page and you want to touch them to feel if they are real!
Love the birthday girl phrase, perfect for your Mom. Thank you for sharing this inspiring card and that you are a caregiver, you are not alone eventhough it feels like it.
