Beautiful Poppystamps Frames
by Jeanne Jachna

Daisy-Frame-Six
Jeanne here today!  Thanks for stopping by!  We're waiting for a new release to hit any day!  In the meantime I'm playing with some old favorites using a technique that I just can't get enough of.   This is my #1 go to when coloring a large background die. 

Daisy-Frame-Five
Isn't this look gorgeous?  And it's so easy to achieve!    Do you ever have a die that just doesn't cut unless you have a metal shim under it?  Most of my intricate background dies are like this.  That is ok because for this technique you want the first layer to be complete.. with no cut out pieces removed.  Another way to get a die cut to not cut all the way through is to apply packing tape - you know ...  the rolls you buy to close boxes or packages, to the back of your cardstock panel before you cut it.
Daisy-Frame
The die cut outline is perfect for showing you where to color.  I use Copic markers (because I color ALOT and they are refillable), but you can use any coloring media you like - pencils, maker, even watercolor. 

Daisy-Frame-One
You don't have to worry about staying in the lines just make sure each area is colored completely.
Daisy-Frame-Three
When you're happy with the coloring, cut the die a second time and adhere it over the panel you colored.  To give the panel a finished look I adhered a Pointed Squares Frame over the assembled panel before adhering it to my card base. 
Daisy-Frame-Two
I saved both of the die cut center circles from the die cut.  One I adhered inside the open window of the frame.  The second I stamped with a sentiment from the Springtime Greetings Stamp Set.   I adhered the circle with the stamped sentiment with adhesive foam tape so it' is raised from the colored design. 
Rose-Frame-Two
I was so happy with how the finished card looked that I decided to do a second card with the Rose Frame die. 
Rose-Frame-One
I hope you will revisit some of your favorite background dies using this technique.  You'll be so happy you did when you see the gorgeous results!

Beautiful cards and a great technique to try!! Love the frames you used!

These bright happy colors are perfect for summer, thanks for sharing your creativity.

Wonderful cards Jeanne. I love these new frame dies.

Thanks for sharing your lovely project.

Thanks, Jeanne. I have this daisy frame die and appreciate your showing me a new way to use it! If you use the packing tape on the back of the card stock, do you use double sided tape to keep it in place?

Hi Jeanne, This is a fabulous technique and you have created two very pretty cards.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Barbara-Jean yes because colored panel has packing tape on the back I use double sided tape to secure it to my card front.

Love those! I bet all my dies now cut without a shim!!
