Coordinate Stamped Backgrounds with Ink Blended Images
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps easter card1

 The best part of creating your own stamped background is that you can create it in whatever colors of inks you own! NO matter what the occasion, if you have even just a handful of ink colors, you can perfectly coordinate your background to match the theme. But why stop there?

Use those same ink colors and an ink blending technique to color stamped die cut images or create coordinating tags too!

Check out this video to see how I created my easter egg background and then used ink blending to color my tag and stamped and die cut images:


I love how everything perfectly coordinates! I will definitely be using these two techniques together on future cards! Thanks for stopping by!

Blog Blitz: Easter Chicks
by Nancy Penir


It's Blog Blitz time, and we're featuring some new Poppy stamp and dies for Spring!


This Easter card uses 3 new die sets and a fun new stampset called, Easter Chicks.


I used the Blooming Border die to create an emboss on the left side of my A2 sized base card.


Lots of sweet flowers and leaves cut from Blooming Border, from shimmer cardstock, for a shaker card.

I glued some of the flowers on the outside of my shaker too.

Hope you're inspired to create some Spring cards, and enjoy the Blog Blitz as we give you some more ideas!

Double Stitch Tag Shaker
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there and welcome to: Day Two of the Poppystamps Blog Blitz! The design team will be sharing some of the new spring products from Poppystamps .

You will have a chance to win each day by leaving a comment . Today I will be giving away the :Double Stitch Tags Die Set  to one random commenter.


The leaves and some of the flowers are watercolored using the Peerless Watercolor Sheet Pack from Birch Press Design, then cut using Poppystamps New Blooming Border. 


 To make the small tag for the sentiment I cut down the smallest tag in the set as pictured above.


I wanted the die cut flowers and sequins to shake freely so I have two lavers : One with fun foam and the other double sided foam tape. I trimmed the outer edge of the fun foam to make sure it wouldn't show.  I also added Poppy Sequin mix of :Fairy Sparkle.


 These are the dies that I used pictured above , the sentiment is from the new and adorable Stamp Set :Easter Chicks from Poppystamps.


Having the two layers (to raise the acrylic layer) was definitely a good idea, happy I remade my shaker tag. I am sharing a few photos to show the movement of how nicely the move.


So many fun and beautiful new spring  products, you can see them all at the Poppystamps store!

Last day to comment is March 31 , 2018.  Winners will be posted on April 3, 2018. Good luck!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today, thank you for all the wonderful and kind comments in the past. 

God Bless.

We're so excited to share another new release!  We've added lots of things for Spring, and some fun basics (think borders and tags) that you won't want to miss.  You can see the entire new Spring 2018 release here.
My project today features the new Easter Chicks clear stamp set.   Of course there are coordinating dies that make cutting these cuties a snap!
I stamped rows of tulips in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic markers.  I  layered them on a green watercolor background to look like a green field.
I chose flower colors in yellow, orange, and red to match the cute little chickies, their rosy cheeks, and little love hearts.
Ah Spring.. Love is in the Air! 
And now the part you've been waiting for.. the prize on this post is the Easter Chicks Clear Stamp Set.

Easter Bunny Egg
by Nancy Penir


Hi everyone! I have a trio of Easter cards today. 


Setting up an assembly line, and doing more than one card is easy breezy, when all your elements are laid out and ready.

Do your die cuts first. For my trio, I used pastel pink, blue and lavender.



With Memory Box's Floral Mask stencil taped in place, I then hand cut a traced image from Poppy's new Easter Bunny Egg from vellum. To keep it in place, I use a light spray of 3M Spray Mount, and press it down where I want it. It comes off easily when I'm done stenciling. The A2 sized card is then slid under the stencil. I wanted a lime colored bg, so I picked Twisted Citron ink to sponge around the edge of the egg.


When the stencil and vellum egg are removed, the card is left with a window for my bunny and Easter grass.


I really love going over the top for holiday cards, so sometimes there's no stopping me! Ribbon bow, a few sequins, and paper flowers, not to mention the Easter grass finish my Happy Easter card!

Oh and that sweet little tag? Pinpoint Main Tag, stamped with Poppy's Sending Love (For You) & a bud from Peony Stems and Blossoms, which I copic colored.


Oh yes, one more decoration... the Berry Sprig die from Poppy!

Hope this gave you some inspiration for a much anticipated and awaited Spring! Happy crafting!

Hello, Spring!
by Jennifer Svare

Spring Window Card Thumbnail

It may be snowing outside, but springtime's in full bloom in the craft room today! 

These cards were made using watercolor note cards that have been sitting around forever. I love the thick, soft texture that these cards have... and now I'm wondering why they sat on the shelf so long!

The beautiful Floral Stem Collage creates a window. I enlarged the window by hand cutting to fit the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame.  By leaving the inner frame a little smaller than the double stitch frame, it created a look of inner matting. 

The Devyn Butterfly Trio has to be one of my favorite dies. The style is so versatile and elegant.  Because the dies cut three sizes at once, it made it very easy to incorporate them on the exterior of the card, interior, and exterior of the envelopes. 



The speckles on the vellum were made using the FineTec Pearlescent Watercolor palette from Birchpress Design.  I put a light coat on the main flower, as well. 


I love how using a combination of pastels, together with the dies, creates a wonderful gift with an early springtime feel. 


Thank you for stopping by today!  There are more details here in the video below:

Easter Bunny Egg
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello! Marybeth here today. Getting a head start on some Easter cards today with this fun little shaker .

I am using Poppystamps new Easter Bunny Egg. I decided to water color this one on the front and background  .


 I layered this the same as my other shakers ( fun foam and clear acetate) then filled with beads for a little bit louder shaking noise. I  added fun foamunder the grassy area (otherwise the beads would just fall to the bottom and I would need more beads to fill) 


I used an older stamp for the sentiment and just curved it to fit around the upper part of the egg. ( Easter Excitement Poppystamps )

It's always nice when its fun and relaxing when creating a card, I have to say this was one of those kinds of cards.

Don't you love it when that happens!


Outside of the sentiment this card can be made with one die!

The paint I used is shimmery but not showing up in the photos. Thank you for the visit today. 

God bless and thank you all for your past kind comments, that you take time to leave.
