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

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.

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

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

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!

Peony Get Well
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog, Lezlye here today showcasing a NEW stamp set and coordinating dies.

Poppypeony
I stamped the Peony flower on Neenah solar white yardstick and cut out with the perfectly precision die.  I chose a little deeper topic markers pictured below.

I drew up a sketch and  based my card off of it. I find this helps get the card design started if you ar having a mental mojo block...

I stamped with versa mark ink on my deep red yardstick circle with the dot texture from the set.

This Nuevo Glimmer paste is neat, it is thick and acts as a colored embossed look. Just look at that yummy texture and color.

I circle cut a apiece of vellum, stamped the sentiment on a flag banner. I used some twine for texture. Final step to add some sparkle, wink of Stella and star sequins.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did with this Fabulous new set perfect for coloring!

Feel Better Soon
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Susanna blossom poppy Welcome to Spring and allergies! Which then brings colds and other illnesses. So,  I Decided to make a cheerful Get well card. I used the Susanna Blossom Die to cut out on watercolor paper. I then used the Zig Kuretake watercolor markers to color my flowers. I then Bunched them together and tied with some hemp cord. Susanna 2 I added glossy accents to the flowers and then mounted them to the card panel with foam squares. I love to mat my focal image with several layers of colored card stock for a really nice finished card. Susanna3 have a lovely day! Lezlye Signature copy

Blog Blitz: Painted Rainbow
by JJ Bolton

Jjbolton_paint1
It's the second day of the new release Blog Blitz and I have a fun, colorful, clean and simple get well card to share with you!  I'm using the new Paint Cans and Brush die set which is just so versatile!  I love watercolors, so this was a no-brainer for me:)  I started by die cutting the large paint can in silver metallic card stock.  Then I die cut it again using watercolor paper just for the "paint" piece inside the paint can.

Next I die cut the little paintbrush in watercolor paper.  Then it was just a matter of using my watercolors to paint an arching rainbow across the card, onto the "paint" piece, and onto my paintbrush.  I really love how the rainbow is just bursting out of that tiny paint can!  The paint can and the brush are glued on with a bit of foam tape.  And the card is finished off with a sentiment from the Hope and Thanks set.

Pretty in Pink
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello and Happy first day of Hanukkah to all our Jewish friends!

I have been wanting to use this beautiful Poinsettia Stem die for a while. I chose to make a pretty pink one that could be used for ; birthday, get well and or Christmas.

I will stamp this card when I know what it will be used for. 


DSC_0203psflower

I placed the “Texture Wave Stencil” over a piece of white paper ( cut with Stitched Landscapes)  as if I were going to use a die ( no pads ) Like I have said before it gives a nice crisp impression.

I layered it with fun foam then adhered  to the card base so I won’t have any problem stamping it later because it will be even, unlike foam tape.

I sponged white paper first then cut out the flowers and leaves. I would then go over some of the petals and leaves  to give  darker shading as needed with the sponge.

 Thanks for the visit today!
