Greetings my Poppy friends! I have a card to share with you today featuring a few of the new items in the shops.

Have you ever tried the Open Studio embossing folders? Talk about dimension... They're extra deep allowing you to play with texture and color. The card I made is really very simple. I ran my folder through my machine (be very careful, allowing for the extra thick folder, adjustments may be necessary), and used sponge daubers and oxide inks to apply color to the lifted flowers and leaves. I used a lighter hand, blending colors, and trying not to go out of the lifted image.

I used the Simple Leaf Heart Split Border from last year, also colored with my oxide inks, and lifted the panel with foam.

The heart window frames a few of blooms.

Like I said, the dimension on these or any of the embossing folders is amazing! 

Hope you're inspired to try your favorite technique with them.

by Jeanne Jachna

Banded Hearts-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU2

Hi Friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  I just wanted to take the time on today's post to remind you to play along with our monthly challenge.  It's a great place for inspiration - you can see what your fellow crafters are making and find creative ideas for ways to use your Poppystamps Dies.   And.. if you link up your own design you could win a $20 gift certificate to our Poppystamps on line store.   You can link to your own blog, on line gallery or Instagram account.

This month we're looking for projects that say I love you.  You can make whatever you like - a page layout, a card, tag, or even a home decor project.  How you say I love you is up to you, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die). 

Banded Hearts-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-Side

My card starts with the Banded Hearts craft die cut from white card stock and adhered to a pink panel.   Next I used card stock scraps to cut more hearts from the panel.  Since all the hearts are exactly the same you can cut anywhere on the panel and the cut out hearts will fit inside any of the openings.

I love the color combination of teal and red, but I also included hearts cut from lime, and several shades of pink.  The hearts are adhered inside the panel openings so this layer is very flat and smooth.

Petite Stitched Hearts cut from white card stock are adhered over the colorful panel and then topped with the Love Outline die cut from gold and white card stock.

A little gold sparkle and shine is always welcome on a card in the mail so I added some gold jewels too.

Love doesn't have to mean hearts - we'd love to see what simple expressions of love make YOU smile and sure hope you find some time to join our challenge.

Unicorn Valentine
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0143

Can you believe it's almost Valentines? One of my favorite holidays, sending love to those special people in my life is a joy!

DSC_0142_wm

Many of those 'special people' in my life are young, and Poppystamps has some new Whittles just right to bring a smile!

DSC_0158

Whittle Unicorn comes with separate mane and horn allowing some creativity, not to mention depth. It also comes with a double heart, which when cut is the heart plus outline! 

DSC_0145

I cut the hearts die from several glitter papers, and arranged them around the Whittle Circle Frame. You can see one around the unicorn's horn too!.

DSC_0143

Lots of framing and foam lifts, really zooms in on the main attraction... that wreath of unicorn joy! 

Happy Valentines, and Happy crafting!

Graceful Heart Frame
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3189

Hey there crafty friends! Candice here, back on the blog to share another Valentine's Day card. 

Today's project uses the Graceful Heart Frame that was released last year and still available for purchase. This die is so stunning and is perfect for doing a paper piecing technique. 

IMG_3135

To get started, you will need to first die cut the Heart Frame image 3 times using Metallic Gold, Red Glitter, and Dark Green cardstock. Next, you will remove the gold inside pieces of the image from the frame and simply adhere the frame to your white A2 card base with some liquid adhesive.

If you own Stick It adhesive, you could apply the Stick It to each of the sheets of cardstock, before die cutting the frame multiple times.  This would allow for the frame and each of the inside pieces to become a sticker and make it easier to paper piece the card together. 

IMG_3119

Next you will adhere the coordinating red glitter heart and large leaf pieces into the gold frame outline using some liquid adhesive. Once all of the glitter pieces are adhered. You will then adhere the coordinating green cardstock pieces for the smaller leaf images into the gold frame. 

IMG_3125

Lastly you will stamp the sentiment Happy Valentine's Day from the Valentine's Fun stamp set in Versafine Onxy Black ink and your card is done. Simple, quick and stunning! If you are intending to make several Valentines' Day cards this season, this design can be mass produced. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time....Happy Crafting!
