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.

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.

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!

Easy Wedding Favor Gift Boxes
by Nadine Carlier

DIY Wedding Favors Gift Boxes by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here today with some easy DIY wedding favor gift boxes. 

DIY Wedding Favors Gift Boxes by Nadine Carlier 1

I stamped the Poppystamps Butterfly Wings Clear Stamp with some VersaMark and heat set it with some silver embossing powder. For the heart, I used the small heart from the Whittle Heart Frames Die Set and cut it out from metallic silver cardstock.

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.

Hugs
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_14-04-2019_11-08-58-3

Some of the easiest cards to make start out with a colour blended background.

And what better way to bring a smile to somebody's face than to use those cute Whittle animals, don't you think?

Just in case you need it, here's a quick 'how to' guide... 

IMG_6529-2

These are the colours I used to colour blend.  I went back in with some extra yellow and a few extra water splatters once the first layer had dried.

IMG_6530-2

The Daisy Oval frame really is quite beautiful with that gorgeous embossing detail.

I've simply cut, coloured, left to dry and then embossed before gluing into place.   

_DSC1171-2

Here's a closer look at that frame...

On top, I've added the Luscious Script Hugs craft die.  Three layers cut, top layer embossed before gluing the whole thing together and attaching to the card.

IMG_6531-2

The Hugs die does actually come complete with a shadow background!

So that's two looks for your crafting from one die.

_DSC1185-2

To decorate, I've opted for the Whittle Rabbit and the Whittle Ducks.

They have all been inked up (even if only just a touch on some of them).  I've also added ink to the eyes and rabbits nose...  and opted to give the duckling a bigger eye as that's the way young ones are often depicted. 

_DSC1180-2

Three sequins later and this card is finished.

I do love the versatility of this Hugs die.  There are other words available in this Luscious Script, too...  so why not take a look and find the ones for you?

Thanks heaps for stopping by.

Have a great day!

You are Loved
by Robin Tharaldson

YOY Are Loved March Full WITH

The 2019 Spring Release from Poppystamps is in full swing and I hope you have had the opportunity to check out all the new stamps and dies! NO?...well head on over to Poppystamps and see for yourself!  My card features products from the Spring Release along with a craft die from Birch Press Design that created my embossed background panel!

YOU Are Loved March CU3 WITH

I know I have mentioned a few times now, but I am in love with the Luscious Script words from this release; there is no end to creating with them! The bold words paired with heartfelt sentiments make for quick and easy projects! The sentiment, for this card, came from the Picnic Plaid stamp set which includes a LARGE background stamp, bold word stamps and many other sentiments!!

YOU Are Loved March CU2 WITH

And, I think the Spring Pots Frame lends itself to so many possibilities...thinking shaker, maybe! Anyway, watch my video to see how to emboss with a die; it's super easy and gives your dies an extended use!

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!

Friendship Day is Any Day!
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Friendship Card Full WITH

I love to send my friends cards, for no other reason than to let them know I'm thinking of them! Here are a few friendship dates I thought you might want to mark on your calendars just in case!

In Oberlin, Ohio, Friendship Day is celebrated on April  8th.  National Best Friends Day is a holiday celebrated on June 8th.  The United Nations decided July 30th would be he International Day of Friendship.  Friendship Day, in the United States, is celebrated on the first Sunday in August, August 4th this year! As you can see there are a number of days you could send a friendship card; but why not send a card...just because?  Don't wait for a special day!!!

PS Friendship Card CU3  WITH

I used the Ribbon Heart Sidekick Frame die and fussy cut out the hearts! I just love how the Ribbon Hearts look by themselves! I adhered the hearts onto a grey corrugated strip of cardstock!

PS Friendship Card CU2 WITH

My sentiment is from the Love and Friendship stamp set and includes several heartfelt sentiments for many "friendship" occasions!! I heat embossed the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Brutus Monroe Sterling Embossing Powder.

PS Friendship Card CU1 WITH

My video will show you just how easy this Friendship card was to assemble!!

Sending My Love
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Feb29 Full WITH

Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away and you still have time to create a few cards for those special people in your life! By "special" I mean those who know how much work you put into your cards and won't just toss them away...right!

PS Feb29 CU2 WITH

My A-10 or business size card features the Tumbled Heart Balloon Collage die from Poppystamps 2019 Valentine's release. This die was a lot of fun to work with; I love the colors and the fun silver string with a bow!

PS Feb29 CU1 WITH

I used two shades of card stock for my hearts and then added Tonic Shimmer to all of them for that little sparkle!

PS Feb29 CU3 WITH

My sentiment is from the Sending Love stamp set. The following video will show you how to create this card!
