Sending Joy
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0055

Greetings Poppy Fans! If you love the holidays, and all the traditions that make them special, then creating holiday cards is right up there at the top of your 'to do' list. My card today is a combo of some of the newest stamps and dies and hopefully will inspire you to get cookin' on your holiday card making.

Holly Vine Sidekick Frame and Stencil lets you as artist, bring your special color touches to your cards.

DSC_0057

After taping the stencil over the leaves, I simply added a bit of sponged ink on each holly leaf. Don't you love the way the veins of the leaves stand out after sponging on the ink? The added texture of color just makes them pop!

DSC_0060

Poppy's Clear Stamps I used have matching dies, and note I cut 2 of the smaller poinsettia image. Here's why:

DSC_0054

Once I finished copic coloring my poinsettia, I fussy cut the center petals of one, and adhered it to the center of the first whole image with a bit of foam tape. The very center has some Stickles added.

DSC_0046

Plenty of room on the frame image to add my sentiment. First the word 'Joy' with embossing powder, then the rest stamped,

(note: the embossing powder I used is Ranger's Liquid Platinum), and JOY filled in with my copics.

Hope you're inspired to play with a few of Poppy's new holiday collection! And be sure to come back every day for more inspiration! Happy crafting!

Summer Release Blog Blitz-To a Special Friend
by Robin Tharaldson

PS June 26 Full With

I hope you have seen the latest release from Poppystamps...no? Well here's the link to see all the new products Summer Release! PLUS, you could win the Daisy Frame die from the Summer Release, more information at the end of my post! The pretty background die on my card is the Daisy Frame!! This die is 4" square and is very versatile! For this card I cut the Daisy Frame three times, yes I know, I do that a lot, BUT I love how it looks!

PS June 26 CU1 With

Also new to this release is the Friend Folksy Script die; just a super fun font! I layered three together, he he he, for more dimension and used a sentiment from the Fairy Wishes stamp set. I cut one sentiment (Special Friend) apart and added it to another (To A), to create the exact wording I wanted on my card.

PS June 26 CU2 With

The dark grey cardstock I used was a nice compliment to the light pink cardstock. It's a nice contrast but much softer looking than black! The following video will show you how to put this card together!

 

If you would like to win the Daisy Frame die, please leave a comment!!  Here's all the important information about Poppystamps Summer Release Blog Blitz!  The blog blitz runs from June 19-29, 2018; Poppystamps is giving away a prize on every Blog Blitz post during this time.  You must leave a comment on ONLY the posts you wish to enter.  To enter ALL the posts during the Blog Blitz you need to leave a comment on EACH ONE.  One person will be chosen at random from each of the posts during the blog blitz.

Bee-lieve in Yourself
by Robin Tharaldson

PS June 18 Full With

With graduations happening all over the city, I created a card to encourage any graduate! 

PS June 18 CU1 With

For my background I used the Honeycomb Curve die on a panel of white cardstock. I then backed the panel with a honey colored panel.  I cut the Believe Loose Script die three times and stacked together to create a dimensional word. I also sponged a little Fossilized Amber to the bottom for more interest.

PS June 18 CU2 With

My little bees are from a blog hop Poppystamps had with Buttons Galore! The shanks, on the back of the buttons, are easily removed with wire snips. The following video will show you just how this card went together!

 

I hope you enjoyed my card and tutorial, thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!

A Flutter of Florals
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5327-wm

Hello Everybody!

We are so thrilled that you could join us here at Poppystamps today! Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful summery card that's full of fun and color! Take a look!

IMG_5339-wm

I love using the Diamond Background for so many projects, especially for spring and summer garden themes. It reminds me of a pretty garden trellis, and it's a beautiful backdrop for these tiny blooms and hummingbirds.

After cutting the Diamond background in a "base" lime green, I adhered it to my card base, then cut additional Diamonds in multiple colors. Originally I had planned on a more colorful background, but after seeing how my tiny flowers were shaping up, I decided to make all the diamond inserts white, to really make my flowers pop.

IMG_5322-wm

After gluing in all the diamonds, I added the Little Hummingbirds with tiny foam dots, then went to work on the Poinsettia Minis. I cut out all of the petals, curled them inwards with a ball burnisher, glued them all together, added them to my card, and finished them with tiny blue jewel centers.  It's not very hard work. but it is a little time-consuming, and it takes a delicate hand and some craft tweezers. The results are always eye-catching!

Thank you all so much for joining us today!

You Make My Heart Flutter: Challenge Reminder
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0010

I'm excited to be bringing you some inspiration for Poppy's latest challenge, 'MY HEART'.

DSC_0006

For this card I created an embossed background with the Rose Frame, by die cutting with rubber mats.

DSC_0004

It's easy to do, simply follow your die cutting machine's instruction on creating a raised embossed image.

Like the heart border on the card's top?

DSC_0003

Oh yes, Poppy has a die for that! Cut twice (actually 4 times) and stacked on the top.

DSC_0001

Rose Stem and Ribbon Heart were also cut twice, with white and red cardstock, before adding them to my card.

I hope you play along this month. Always fun to see what you create, and there's always a gc waiting for one lucky person!

Have a great crafty week!

Hi there sweet crafty friends! Welcome to the November Blog Blitz.  

We are already deep into the busy Holiday season, with Christmas just a bit away. 

I made another clean and simple card using the darling Tiny Fawns and the new Large Window Cut Out ( thats the prize I am giving away today.  The window seal is layered 3 times , for the glitter background  I added a rectangle of double sided sticky paper then glittered it that give a nice even patch of glitter .Download-1

Many years ago I made a birch tree card, to make the branches I stamped a sentiment on top of them in a light grayish color to mock the lines on the real trees. That is what did on the Tree Trunks from Poppystamps 

Download-7

Here is a larger  picture of the stamped trees.

Download-5

I used Masters Touch watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby ( I get a lot of questions  about that) Don't forget all you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to with the Large Window Cut Out Die 1970.

The Blog Blitz 20th-30th November So you have plenty of time to leave comments . Hugs and Blessing to you all!

Easy and Festive Gatefold Cards
by Jennifer Svare

Gatefold2

Hello!  Today I'll share how I made these fun, simple gatefold cards! 

The possibilities are endless with the color and embellishment options to create different looks and themes.  

Gatefold10

The fabulous base layers from the Postage Square Layers and Heart Pattern Plate make the perfect base for a gatefold card that looks like it took a long time to make... but didn't!  

Gatefold11_Watermark

I used the Stitched Evangeline Snowflake as the base for a sparkly layer of Boho Snowflake.  I love how these snowflake dies work together to create options!  I definitely could have put a crystal or sequin on top of the snowflake, but I love how flat these cards are especially when mailing bulk cards for Christmas. 

Gatefold3_Watermark

Since there were three square postage bases to embellish, I thought the three letters from the Joy Banner die perfectly matched the playful Heart Pattern Plate.

Gatefold4_Watermark

All of these dies are so versatile - even the lettering look can be changed with a different paper and crank of the die cutter!  

Gatefold8

The Roaming Polar Bear looks great all white and sparkly, and I just couldn't resist as long as the glitter paper was out!  A quick flip to horizontal, and larger Rectangle Postage Layer made it fast and easy.

Gatefold13

The Folk Merry Christmas is the perfect font for a Kraft-style card, so I used this for the interior card greeting.  The red base was made using the Postage Rectangle Layers and the Pinpoint Rectangle Layers made the top layer so easy. 

Gatefold6_Watermark

I love how the borders from the Postage Layers give a festive hello even while in the envelope!

Gatefold12

Check out the video below for a closer look of these cards and tips on how they were made! Thank you for stopping by, and have a great day!
