Blog Blitz Beautiful Butterflies
by Tina Wilstrup

Poppy1

Hello everyone! I'm Tina and new to the Poppystamps design team. I'm so excited to be here and to share with you my first blog blitz post for the summer release. There are some goegeous dies and stamps and you can shop them here.

Poppy glitter

I started by covering a panel of white cardstock with double sided tape and cut this with the Beautiful Butterflies sidekick frame. I left all the pieces in and adhered the whole panel to my card base. I then pealed off the tape backing ONLY from all the pieces in between all the butterflies. Placing the panel on a piece of computer paper I covered it with WOW! Jade sparkles. A fair warning, you will have glitter everywhere!

Poppy show sparkle

I folded the paper over the panel and burnished the glitter with my bonefolder. Just look at all that sparkle! Isn't it gorgeous?!

Poppy2

I die cut the frame 4 more times and layered them on top (remembering to remove the rest of the tape backing). Before placing the final rectangle inlay I stamped a sentiment from the Butterfly Greetings stamp set.

Poppy dimension

The finishing touch was adding butterflies for dimension. I cut them with the die that comes with the frame. I bent them just a tiny bit and adhered them to the frame, matching the size to the butterflies on the frame. I also heat embossed 3 butterflies with WOW! Emerald Green embossing powder, which matches the sparkle. Can you tell I love this color?

Happiness
By Jeanne Jachna

Happiness
I hope you're having a great day!  Have you noticed the Poppystamps Summer Release is in the store?   There's lots of great new products including FOUR new Sidekick style dies like this one called Beautiful Butterflies!
Happiness-Three
I started this card with a distress ink background.   It was easy to create using three shades of Distress Ink (Spun Sugar, Iced Lemonade and Dried Marigold).  The new makeup brushes like mine from Amazon are amazing!  No more stencil brushes for me!   

Happiness-Five
I splattered the inked panel with water, some watered down in, and some white ink.  I trimmed the panel slightly smaller than my card base so the edges don't peek out. 
Happiness-One
I topped the inked panel with the new Beautiful Butterflies Sidekick Frame.   I stamped a sentiment from Blooming Greetings on the white cut out from the frame that I reserved.  To get the ombre inking on the sentiment I used a stamping tool.  I inked the top part of the die with pink and stamped, then I inked the bottom half of the stamp with orange and stamped. The places that were inked with both (the middle) created a third color.  I like how the sentiment mirrors the ombre inked background. 
Happiness-Two
The Beautiful Butterflies Sidekick Frame comes with a second die that cuts several size butterflies.  I cut some from scrap paper that I inked with distress ink and used them as embellishments around the sentiment. 
Happiness-Four
We'll be having a blog blitz showing you lots more with the new release beginning on August 13!  You won't want to miss seeing designs made with the new products and YES!  Lots of prizes are in store for YOU!

SQUIRREL!
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6195-wm

Hello Friends!

With all this sticky, hot weather we've been having lately, it's hard to imagine the kiddos headed off to school in less than a month! Soon we'll be watching out the windows as they head off to catch the bus. Yes, my friends, Autumn is right around the corner!

IMG_6191-wm

I created a fresh and fun CAS card with a few new friends and an old favorite. These sweet little Whittle Squirrels sit at the Grand Madison Window, surrounded by Stitched Oak Trio Leaves and a Whittle Maple Leaf. It's as easy breezy to make as the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies floating by!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

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.

Blooming Garden Challenge Reminder
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6096-wm

Hello Friends!

We are so glad you could stop by today, and take a look at this fun card I created for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! 

IMG_6089-wm

I have a little kitty who LOVES to help me with everything I do, especially with my tiny garden that I have out on our apartment lanai. My kitty and my small space garden inspired me to create this card for our April Challenge. These "Whittle" animals that all came out this year are some of my very favorites, and today's Whittle Cat is sweetly checking out the Folk Watering Can filled with tiny flowers from the Spring Pot Shelves.

IMG_6084-wm

To create this card, I started with some watercolor paper and sponged on Distress Oxide inks in shades of blues and greens, gently giving them a soft blend to look like an outdoor horizon. Then I splattered the paper with water and a paintbrush, which gives the inks these beautiful layers of color. Once the paper was completely dry, I then cut out the Pointed Rectangle Frame and the other cuts, and estimated where I wanted the horizon line to appear, then cut it out and adhered it to my white frame.

IMG_6086-wm

I adhered that to my card base, then added all my die cuts, arranging the flowers and leaves from the Spring Pot Shelves into the Folk Watering Can, and adding the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies and a few sequins. It's the perfect design for my small space inspired Blooming Garden card!

Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you will create for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! Just use at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, then link up your creation to our  current challenge page on the right! What are you growing in your garden?

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.     

IMG_5579

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

A Frame for a friend
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6025-wm

Hello Friends,

Spring is right around the corner, and with it, a brand new release from Poppystamps! You are going to LOVE our brand new set of springtime stamps and dies. Today, I am sharing a little sneak peek of a beautiful stamp set from our brand new release, Butterfly Wings!

IMG_6024-wm

Butterfly Wings is a full set of stamps and sentiments, with an extra large clear stamp of this gorgeous field of butterflies! I used the large stamp in my MISTI, and gave it a good inking with black ink that won't run with copic markers.

IMG_6009-wm

Once my image was inked, I let it dry, trimmed the edges, and then colored all the butterflies with a handful of bright copic markers! It was so relaxing! Once the copics were dry, I then cut out the center square with the Deco Cecil Frame, then adhered the stamped sentiment from Love & Friendship on the back. 

Instead of making a card that opened, I made an "art card" style design that can be reinserted into a small frame, or be written on the back to send a cheerful word to a good friend! A few Stitched Fluttering Butterflies was the finishing touch!

IMG_6027-wm

We are so glad you could join us today! Be sure to check back again and again for more great inspiration and ideas from our newest release. We have a big surprise right around the corner too! See you soon!

Tall Sketch Daisies
by Jeanne Jachna

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Four

Jeanne here today to remind you to play along with our monthly challenge that begins on the first of every month.  This time the challenge is to "Make A Splash"!  You can interpret this challenge lots of different ways - like using  a technique that requires water or making a beach or lake side scene.   What a great way to cool off during the August heat with a sweet crafty escape! 

08-18 copy
I made two cards with one die cut using the die cut images as well as the negative background.   To make my "splash"  I created two watercolor panels with distress ink (Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet).  I use the liquid ink refills as my paint.

 Tall-Sketch-Daisies-One

I cut the Tall Sketch Daisies from a white card stock panel.    I layered negative over one of the watercolor panels.

Tall-Sketch-Daisies

And I adhered the white die cut daisies on the second watercolor panel.  

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Two

Here's what they looked like before I finished them with sentiments. 

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Three

I created a window panel for the watercolor panel with the white die cut daisies.  I cut the panel with the Stitchwork Square Frames and added one on top to give it a finished look.
Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Five
I added a sentiment from Little Kindness and a sprinkle of gold Stitched Fluttering Butterflies!

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Seven

For the card using the negative of the die cut daisies I added a Stitchwork Rectangle Frame and a Thanks Folksy Script sentiment cut from gold glitter paper.
Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Six
I sure hope you join us for our challenge!  The monthly prize is a $20 gift certificate awarded to  one random player.   It's a great way to see what your friends are making too!
