The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!

I used an ink pad on my glass mat and added water to the ink then used a watercolor brush to paint the main body of the barn from Poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel Set craft die.

I added two layers of trim for depth, and couldn't resist using the adorable : Poppystamps Little Chickens. I also used the Stormy Blue paper pack from memory box . I wanted to make my card red white and blue as we just celebrated the Fourth of July , here in America. I love the look of the blue paper, kinda reminds me of a summer stormy sky.

Hello, and Happy 4th of July!

Celebrating the USA today with a red white and blue watercolor and die cuts card.

Using Poppy's new watercolor card stock, I spritzed the card with water, just touching the card with color in random places.

Next, I added the blue. If there were puddles, I picked them up the a paper towel.

I chose dies I thought looked like fireworks exploding in the sky, like Poppy's new, Brillant rings. Notice I left them together.

Once dry, I added my panel to a card front, and began adding my die cuts in red white and blue glitter card stock. It's really fun to play with your dies, using them in non traditional ways.

Here I had to get a bit creative for my sentiment. Using Doodle Happy Birthday and Doodle Happy Easter dies,

I cut up the letters in the happy and easter to create U S A.

Here's hoping you have a happy and safe 4th of July!

Challenge Reminder: ABC Anything But a Card
by Nancy Penir

Hello, and welcome to my reminder... a reminder that there's a challenge you don't want to miss! ABC or Anything But a Card.

DSC_0269_wm

3 tags for grandchildren going back to school. I'll pop these onto some new pencils or something fun that will start them off with a smile.

First, loosely watercolored my background on a taped down watercolor Cardstock. If you tape it down first, it will dry flat. Makes it much easier to work with.

After I stamped all my images, they were Copic colored and cut out.

Each tag was stamped with a sentiment and some waves, the given some bing with rainstones.

Specialized tags are a great way to say, 'You're special to me', and are so much fun to make. Hope you can play along this month. There's always a gift certificate to the Poppy store as the prize. And we love to see what you make. Have a great week!

Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing an adorable summer CAS card with the Patriotic Otters! Aren't they sweet? Take a look!

IMG_6165-wm

This is an easy breezy paper piecing card using the Whittle Otter and Heart Trio Showcase. Just cut out the otters and the squares and piece it all together, finishing with the Pointed Rectangle Frames. It's a fun way to add in a little patriotic color for the Fourth!

Thanks so much for dropping by today! Come back tomorrow for even more great inspiration and ideas.

Shaker Cupcake Toppers
by Olga

Hello and Happy 4th of July to all my US friends! 

Hope you are having wonderful time - and here is the project to add to the holiday mood! I have made a trio of cupcake toppers (Stars and Stripes themed!) with a matching holder box. The toppers are actually shaped shakers filled with stars!

This project is not too time consuming and is a lot of fun to make. I guess it can also be adapted for Christmas or other events!
