Miss You
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_23-02-2019_15-06-42-2-2

Have you seen the challenge on the Poppystamps blog for this month?  It's 'Spring Cleaning' time!

So if you have something old you could use hiding away in your stash, perhaps you would like to join us?

...  Or perhaps you prefer to make something Clean And Simple?

Either way, there is still time to play!

You have until 12am on March 28th, US EST to join in...  and a random winner does get a prize!

I've opted for a CAS card using one of Poppystamps older dies that IS still in stock...  the Powell Butterfly.

Want to know how this was made?

Snapseed123

I've cut the Powell Butterfly from stamping card and simply used an ink dauber to add these two colours as symmetrically as I can.

Snapseed 2

Then I've created the smallest of ink splatters using this Twinkling H20 teal colour.  (For those of you unfamiliar with Twinkling H20's, they are a watercolour with added mica).

Once dry, I've simply stamped and heat embossed 'Miss You' from the new 'You Are Wonderful' Art Deco clear stamp set...

...  and I've added this Whittle Wood Frame using two layers glued together for added dimension.

To finish, I've simply attached the butterfly from the centre, and once completely dry and secure...  added a touch more sparkle over the butterfly ink using a 'Clear Overlay'  pen by Spectrum Noir.

The beauty of a CAS card is that it never takes too long to make...

Thank you so much for stopping by today. x

Spring Window
by Olga Direktorenko

Hello crafters and welcome to another post of the Blog Blitz. Today you have a chance to win the beautiful Garden Poppy Stitched Frame die from the new Poppystamps release. Just comment on this post by March 17. Winners will be announced on March 19! 

Poppies

I have used this die as well as other Poppy dies to "create a window with a view" scene. I have simply stuck the poppy frame behind the potted flower frame, then added a couple of hills and the background. Finally I mounted the entire piece onto the embossed A2 card base.

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. 

DSC_0043

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. AND here's a 2nd way for you and a friend you choose to win... Visit us on Instagram, follow us, like the post you want to win, leave a comment and tag a friend. It's that easy!

Other dies I've included are listed below. Have a great week, and hope you enjoy the blitz!

Hi there and welcome to the Spring Line Poppystamps Blog Blitz. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to win this beautiful Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame and Stencil from Poppystamps 

Fullsizeoutput_1095

This past Friday I went to visit the nearby hills on fire with blooms of wild California Poppies!  It was amazing , so glad I went as it only last a bit. This was in the Hills near Temecula.

IMG_0038

I left everything in tact then placed my stencil on top and began to use my watercolor Zeg pens to color the poppies.

IMG_0043

IMG_0047

After I was done I added a bit of shimmer. Then stamped the sentiment using Poppystamps : Picnic Plaid clear stamp set.

IMG_0071

The die and stencil are both included with the die and could be your prize.

Thought I would share a few more of the wild Golden Poppies that are also the California state flower.
