Sending Handmade Hugs

Hi! It's my turn to show you a card made with Poppystamps die, Country Rose Corner.

DSC_0004

Another new die set I used is: Big Hexagon Border Layer and Little Hexagon Border Layer. 2 different dies,

when used together make a big layering impact!

DSC_0012

Is there anything sweeter than pinks and pale blue for Spring?

I took out the pieces of my rose die cut and copic colored the petals. Also copic colored the fern leaves. You'll notice I used 3 rose dies for their fern leaves, to look like they were climbing a lattice.

I wanted a controlled 'splatter' of dots, so I stamped the dots from Peony Stems and Blossoms.

Hope you enjoyed my Spring card, and are inspired to create one too!

Floral Dotted Border
by Jeanne Jachna

Floral-Dotted-Border-Five
I hope you're having a great day!  I'm looking for Spring in my little part of the world, and so far it looks like it's alluding me.  On dreary days I like to craft and make a bright spot of my own.  Here's what I made today!
Floral-Dotted-Border-Three
I should have checked the availability of all the dies I worked with today before I started crafting.  My apologies but the Blooming Poppy is no longer available.  Maybe you already have it? What's unique about my card today is really the background - and I think it would make a beautiful setting for any floral die you might have.
Floral-Dotted-Border
I started by creating an ombre red background.  The typical card I make is an A2 size (4.25 x 5.5").  I usually cut the cover panel slightly smaller than the card base leaving about an quarter inch border around the card (finished size 4 x 5.25").  I chose 5 different shades for my background.  I made each strip a little over an inch wide.  I taped the different colored panels together and then trimmed them to fit my card base. 

Floral-Dotted-Border-One
Next I cut a panel of white card stock 4 x 6"  Using a ruler I lined up the floral dotted border die as close to the edge as possible, taped the die in place and cut the border on both edges of the paper.  It's very important to use a ruler because the flowers on the outside edge of the die are uneven.  line up the die from the inside (where the dots are) Because the panel is longer than the actual die it stays together until you're ready to trim it down for the card cover. 
Floral-Dotted-Border-Four
All that's left is to embellish the center panel with your favorite image.  I matched the colors of the blooms with the colors included in the ombre background.   I love the color peeking through the open designed flowers.  They look like lace!
Floral-Dotted-Border-Two
This is a great way to stretch your border dies!  I hope you'll give this technique a try!

Cascade of Posies

Hi! I'm so glad you joined me today. I have a card made with a new Poppy die called, Pierced Finnegan Circle.

DSC_0068

A friend of mine recently had shoulder surgery, and wanted her to know she's on my heart and mind. Here's a few of

what I used to create this card.

DSC_0051

After running the die through the die cutting machine, I inked a bit of color to hi light the pierced design.

DSC_0048

Blooming Border provided the posies and leaves, which I cut from vellum.

DSC_0064

Lots of sequin flower centers, and a sweet 'feel better', and my card's ready to send!

Hope you got some inspiration today. And hope you have a 'craftilicous' day!

For my post today I am featuring the Big Circle Border Layer die; I think it adds a nice touch to my panel and allows the background color to show.

My bouquet was created using Peony Stems and Blossom, stamps and dies. The images were stamped with Memento Desert Sand onto watercolor paper and simply colored.

Nearly Spring Greetings, Poppystamp lovers! I'm bringing bright hopes for sunshine today, with a happy colorful card!

DSC_0005

The focal image for my card is a new die called, Garden Bouquet. So sweet and clean, and I kept it that way with just a few bits of color inserted back into the butterflies and flower centers.

DSC_0012

Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames provided pretty pink framing for my bouquet and sentiment.

DSC_0010

I slipped out the small die cuts to color, and added the color with copics. the larger flowers and butterfly bodies were added with Nuvo drops.

DSC_0015

I just apply the drops to a piece of acetate in the size and color I want. When dry, just lift off and glue onto your card.

I love that through the cold grey of winter, the hope of Spring is around the corner! Are you creating Spring cards? Poppy has some beautiful stamps and dies with Spring themes to choose from!

Thanks for the visit, and happy crafting!
