Blog Blitz: Summer Release!
by Nancy Penir


Hi Everybody! We're celebrating a Blog Blitz here at Poppystamps. And if you love the die I'm showcasing, LEAVE A COMMENT! That's all you have to do, and you might win this darling Delicate Branch Collage die. 


Couldn't resist making it into a  shaker. Like to make one similar? Here's a rundown of my how-to's.


First I stenciled a card base with MB's Texture Dot Grid. I'm all about layers. And depth. and pattern. The more the merrier!

As you can see, I stenciled 3 shades of ink onto my card, not worrying about anything in the center, that part will be covered.


I inked up a white linen look cardstock in blue and purple, before cutting out with my die. 

Also cut it again, so I could use just the branches. Notice I used my die with the branches on top. I knew I was going to add a sentiment on the bottom, so I wanted to keep the bottom clean.


Friend Folksy Scrip is one of the new dies being released too. Stay tuned for one of the other designers featuring it as her giveaway. 


I cut my scrip die twice, once from navy blue cardstock, then from white. I love doubling up my dies, for added depth. Did I mention I LOVE layering? Couldn't resist adding a bit of Wink of Stella to my word die.


If you'd like a chance to win the Delicate Branch Collage die, remember to leave a comment.

Someone's gonna win, hope it's you!
