Little Donut Love
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5959-wm

Hello Friends!

Welcome to our amazing Poppystamps Blog Blitz! We are so happy you could join us today for a little love and a little inspiration! Today I am sharing a card I created with the adorable Little Donut! Take a look!

IMG_5956-wm

I started with a simple watercolor splash and splatter on my card base, then stamped "Sprinkled With Love," from the Donut What I'd Do clear stamp set. Of course, what is a donut without sprinkles?

IMG_5962-wm

To top off my sweet little donuts, I added teeny tiny little pink seed bead "sprinkles." They are super cute but a little challenging to work with! The tiny beads add a fun texture to the little donuts too!

You could win this this darling Little Donut die just by leaving a comment!

Happy Valentine's Day
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_12-01-2019_17-24-47-2

Whittle Mouse is up for grabs on the Poppystamps Blog Blitz today!

I'll include a super quick 'how to' guide, followed by details on how you can enter to win.

FullSizeRender

Start with a 4.25 x 5.5" card base.

Use the stencil from Ribbon Heart Sidekick Frame to create a subtle embossed design, then use the Pinpoint Hearts as shown.

Finally, add an ink splatter using a syringe.

(For those of you new to ink splatting with a syringe, the secret is the push that plunger down as quickly as you can)!

IMG_4979

Here are all the dies you will need...

Use a flower shaping tool to shape the petals (one of which will become the 'grass').

Add a second layer to the Happy Valentine's Day wording - and to the Shaker Heart.

The mouse is made up of four layers, one of which is only a partial die cut so that the mouse lies flat on the card.

IMG_4994-2

Glue everything into place for a quick and simple design.

 

Now here's the part you've been waiting for...  a reminder on how to win!

by Nancy Penir

DSC_0050

Hi! Are you loving the blog blitz so far? I'm here with another chance for you to win a new die, Whittle Cupcake. I had so much fun with this new die, and I know you're going to love it too. It's part of the Whittle series, which plays so well with the other Whittles. 

DSC_0049_wm

Here's a peek at how I made my Valentine card.

DSC_0008 2

The cupcake die cuts in two pieces, the top and bottom, and gives you the option of coloring or decorating your cupcake in so many ways. I used copics in bright pink and blue. Then blended with my colorless blender.

DSC_0052

My trio of cupcakes were 'sprinkled' with Nuvo drops, and decorated with a heart embellished with glossy accents. All the supplies I used are listed below, and are in the shop.

Now here's the good news. There are a few ways for you to win this cupcake die. Leave a comment on my blog. And visit us on Instagram, like all the posts during the blitz that you'd like to win, and leave a comment and tag a friend. You and your friend could win! It's a win win! Now don't forget, visit us on Instagram too. Visit each and every day, here on Poppy's blog too, January 10 -21 and leave a comment

Valentine Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_8988

Hello and welcome to the Poppystamps Blog Blitz!  You have a chance to with the Pinpoint Hearts from Poppystamps just by leaving a comment on this post. I love the 4 line pinpoint dots that from the heart on this craft die .

IMG_8973

I was going to use the embossed hearts altogether at first but later chanced my mind. If you want to give it a try don't cut them apart right away.

IMG_9084

I used the Pinpoint die to make the dotted heart then cut a few layers and colors for the center heart,, from Deco Shining Heart. The top pink heart has some fun foam on the back to pop it up.

Download-1

I then cut the Happy Valentine's Day with the new Poppystamps Doodle craft die, all listed and linked below.

 I created my panel on watercolor cardstock and kept my design simple with lots of texture.

Valentine Blog Blitz CU1 With

My project uses products from Poppystamps 2019 Valentine's Release!!  I used Big Donut and Little Donut dies plus Donut What I'd Do stamp and die set! I did not snip the Big Donut dies apart but cut all of the dies from three different colored card stock! That way I was able to create three cards pretty fast!!

Valentine Blog Blitz CU2 With

Donut know what it is but there is something about using the colors white, pink and chocolate; they just go together so well! The cute little heart sprinkles were cut three times from each color; you can never have too many sprinkles!!! I finished my cards by adding Tonic Crystal Glaze to the sprinkles and added a few moonstone sequins. 

Valentine Blog Blitz CU3 With

My sentiments are from the Donut What I'd Do stamp and die set! AND yes, the die comes with the stamp set!! The following video will show you just how easy these cards were to put together!!

To win the BIG Donut die I used today you need to leave a comment!  Here is all the info on how to participate. The blog blitz runs from January 10-21.

Valentine's Release Blog Blitz Begins!
by Jeanne Jachna

Otter-Love-One
You picked  a great day for a visit!  Poppystamps has just added a new Valentine's release to the store and our blog blitz begins today!  That means we're sharing projects made with the new release and offering some prizes on every blog blitz post for the next two weeks.   You can see the new release in the store here. 

Otter-Love
I like non traditional colors for holidays because they're unexpected and catch the recipient by surprise.  I'm guessing Mr. J would be happy with a pink and red Valentine from me, but I know he'll like this one even more. 
Otter-Love-Two
For this card you need three shades of blue card stock.  I cut the new Wavy Heart from a panel of the lightest shade, and then adhered the panel (with the open window) to my card base.  I cut the Wavy heart two more time from the darker shades of blue, and alternating the colors inserted the die cuts into the negative space in the soft blue panel.
Otter-Love-Four
I cut only a few of the wave stripes a second time from the darker blue shades and tucked the Whittle Otters so their paws are hanging over the die cut waves.
Otter-Love-Five
The little guys are held in place with a bit of tape.  When this piece is assembled it's easy to attach over the completed panel with adhesive foam tape.  The tape adds some dimension to the waves. 
Otter-Love-Three
The Doodle Happy Valentine's Day sentiment is also new.  I embellished the completed design with smaller hearts cut with the Heart Trio Showcase Die and some sparkling clear sequins to look like a sparkle of light on the water. 
Otter-Love-Six

And now the part you've been waiting for.. the giveaway!  The prize on this post is the Wavy Heart die!

The blog blitz runs from January 9-21. We'll be giving away a prize on every blog blitz post during this time. To enter to win you need to leave a comment on ONLY the posts that you wish to enter.

Starry Night with Poppystamps
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5936-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today! We have got SO MUCH going on at Poppystamps this month, you won't want to miss a thing! But first, are you playing along with our January challenge, Starry Night? All you have to do is create a card or project using at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, and link it up over on our challenge blog! You might be selected as this month's winner!

38001466_2373354709557543_6101936694003499008_n

Take a look at how I was inspired by a Starry Night!

IMG_5932-wm

I created a cozy home, right after Christmas, nestled in the snowy north woods! I even created a background using a brand new technique (at least for me)!

IMG_5909-wm

I have been creating cards using alcohol inks for a while, which is so much fun, and would work nicely with this Starry Night card too. The background panel on the left was created with alcohol inks dripped and then blended on YUPO paper. The panel on the right was created with copic markers! Just select your favorite shades and scribble them across the YUPO, then blend with a little alcohol blending solution and a sponge in a swirly motion. I used the darker blue panel as the night sky for my Starry Night card.

IMG_5934-wm

We'd love to see what you'll create, and how you will be inspired by a Starry Night!

Thanks so much for dropping by today, and be sure to come back again tomorrow!
