Hugs!! It's Your Birthday!
by Robin Tharaldson

May23 HugsFull WITH

Nothing like a BIG hug on your birthday! These large word dies from Poppystamps have taken me by storm!! Hope you aren't getting too bored with me designing with them BUT they are so versatile!

May23 Hugs CU1 WITH

I think this design is gender neutral, but with the grey/brown tones it's more masculine. With a simple switch of palate it could be more feminine or with bright colors suitable for children.

May23 Hugs CU2 WITH

By cutting the Delicate Branch Collage die twice, then turning it around and stacking, I created more of the background element I was needing for this card. I'm sure if you look at your dies you will find a few that would work with this technique.

May23 Hugs CU3 NO

Even though I resisted making a shaker card, this would be a great frame for one!!  My video will show you just how easy this card was to create! And at times we all need something easy and fast!

Hi and welcome to my Poppystamps Challenge reminder! This is a SUPER easy challenge! Just use washi tape and/or a wish sentiment, for example a birthday greeting! You also need to use one Poppystamps stamp or die product!

May Challenge CU1 WITH

For my card I used a simple die cut image, Delightful Daisy, and a few strips of washi tape to create a fast and easy card!

May Challenge CU2 WITH

For my wishi part of the challenge I used a sentiment from the Birthday Blowout stamp set.

Donut You Forget
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0006

I have a card for you that's going to a young boy today. Sometimes it can be hard to create something for the young ones in our lives. Hopefully this will help give you some ideas.

DSC_0001

I picked a Poppystamp die that I could cut several colors from, and saved the little donut holes. They looked so festive!

DSC_0004_wm

The finished card is a combination of color and elements my little guy loves (who doesn't love donuts?)

DSC_0008

Here's a sideview of the popups. 

DSC_0009

I had a few leftover donuts, so I added them to the inside. 

Hope you got some ideas for you next child card.  And hope your week is extra crafty!

Hello Birthday Girl
by Robin Tharaldson

Hello Birthday Girl Full WITH

Hi everyone thanks for stopping by today! I created this birthday card for a sweet young lady turning 3!  Yes, yes, yes...I know, another card with a word die, but I just love creating with the new Luscious Script dies!!! The possibilities are endless when you combine LARGE word dies with just about any sentiment!

Hello Birthday Girl CU1 WITH

For my card I used an embossing folder to create a textured background and then added three die cuts from Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames. I think the scalloped die cuts look like lace and helped create a feminine look to the card!

Hello Birthday Girl CU2 WITH

The word die was three times from white card stock and once from grey, I then glued them together with a slight offset with the grey layer.  Having the white behind really added dimension to the large die cut! 

Hello Birthday Girl CU3 WITH

A simple wrap of pink yarn and a few of my favorite sequins finished my card! The following video will show you how easy it was to assemble this card!

Cheerful Hello Card
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here today with a cheerful hello card using the new Poppystamps Butterfly Wings Clear Stamp Set.  I love how this stamp is a background stamp, so many things can be done with background stamps. 

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I used it to create a resist for the background on my card front. The "to my favorite bestie" is one of the sentiment stamps that comes with the Butterfly Wings Stamp Set. 
The "hello" is from the Poppystamps Luscious Script Die.

Blog Blitz Alcohol Inked Greenhouse
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0035

Hi everyone! Are you ready for a Spring Blog Blitz? Lots of new stamps and dies, and plenty of fun techniques from the designers.

Today I have the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame & Stencil to show you. And I've done a card with all alcohol inks die cuts. 

DSC_0022

Alcohol Inks are a fantastic way to add pizzaz to your project. They react with Yupo paper, a shiny surfaced paper, and blending solution to get a wildly colorful, rather agate like pattern, fun result. Here's one way to play with them. First I squirted my blending solution on my yupo paper. Notice it gets messy so protect your surface. Gloves are optional. 

DSC_0023

Next up I added my colors. No rhyme or reason, for this technique just go for it. 

DSC_0025

I then sandwiched a clean piece of yupo paper over my saturated sheet, in a schmooched way, pressing without moving either sheet. The result is a magical blend of wild color!

DSC_0027

Ok, friends, this was way too much fun! As you can see, I played with all color combos. And here's what I did with them:

DSC_0005_wm

A birthday card for someone who loves potted and potting plants! Now there's a stencil that is included with this die. I can't wait to use it too.

DSC_0007

This fabulous die and stencil set is the giveaway to one lucky person. Don't forget to leave a comment today and on each of the blog blitz days for a chance to win. Best of luck to you, and thanks for sticking with me through my little tutorial on alcohol inking. By the way, there are fabulous you tube videos to entice you to trying these inks.

The new release is in the store, and the blog blitz runs from Mar. 2nd - the 14th. You have until the 17th to comment. The winners will be announced on the 19th.

Birthday Wishes!
by Robin Tharaldson

Birthday Wishes Full WITH

My birthday gate fold card features stamps and dies from Poppystamps Spring Release! The release has several LARGE word dies and I Love them!! They include Sending, Hello, Thanks, You, Hugs and Wishes!! When I saw them I did my happy dance!

 Birthday Wishes CU3 WITH

I used the NEW background stamp, Picnic Plaid, to create my panels for the front of my card (another happy dance). I stamped with VersaMark ink,  heat embossed with white embossing powder and used distress inks to sponge onto the panel! A few flicks of black gouache added a bit of interest!

Birthday Wishes CU2 WITH

For my word die cut I cut 3 layers of the word background from Neenah 110# and 2 layers of the word itself from black card stock! After layering them together it created a very strong embellishment to close my card. I used Thin Clear Velcro Fasteners to close my card! The following video will show you just how the Velcro works!!

Thanks for stopping by today! AND be on the lookout, in March, for a Blog Blitz featuring the new release!! You could win one of the products from the Spring Release!

Night Sky
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_1079

Hello and Happy New Year to all of you! I made this card with a few dies from Poppystamps . I used Winter Cabin ,Whittle Trees and Pointed Circle Frames.

IMG_8795 2

I love watercoloring with Peerless  Watercolor sheets from Birch Press Design. The color is so vibrant and can easily be toned down with water .

IMG_8797 3

This is how my night sky started out. I dried it with my heat gun then added more watercolor until I was happy with the results.

IMG_8799 2

I loaded my brush with white shimmer paint then made splatters by rubbing my fingernail over the tip of the brush.

Fullsizeoutput_1074

This card could be for anyone but I also think its a great masculine card!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and many blessings to you and your families in 2019!

Changing Up the Poinsettia
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_8784

Hello! Marybeth here today. I hope you all had a wonderful  Christmas . I never had a chance to use this beautiful Poinsettia Die from Poppystamps before Christmas so I tried using a different color for a birthday card. 

Fullsizeoutput_106c

I cut two of the smaller blooms from the die set, one to keep whole and one to cut apart.

IMG_8782 2 Watermark copy

The photos don't show too well but I used shimmer pen on top of all the watercoloring for a deeper color.

Download

This was a simple card to make. I used my zig watercolor pens to color and then shimmer pen. I layered the dies on the card using some foam tape to pop up a few of the blooms and leaves. 

God bless you in the new year!

Sending Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0040

Hi! Nancy here, and I have a card full of sparkle today!

DSC_0049

My card uses a few of Poppy's fabulous dies, and some sponge inking too. I'll show you how I created it.

DSC_0028

Once I have a basic card idea, I get all my diecuts ready. For the Blooming Rose, I inked a scrap of cardstock with Distress Ink  colors before cutting it out.

DSC_0030

I did the same with my tag.

DSC_0035

For the background, I cut the 2 largest frames from the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame set.

DSC_0041

This photo shows the sparkle when the light hits the card. Sentiment comes from Magic and Sparkle Clear Stamp set, and the sparkle is embossed with Stampendous Winter Wonderland. To help it stand out a bit, I used a colored pencil to hi-light the letters.

Hope you're inspired to give your card a bit of sparkle and shine. There are so many wonderful products out there.

Sprays, dry glitter, Stickles and Nuvo drops. Take your pick, and add some shiny goodness!
