Hello, Lovely Tulips

With the first day of spring almost here in the US, I thought it was the perfect time to share the new Layered Tulips on a card.

I like that you get each layer of all three tulips in one pass of your cutting machine. I added a spot of glue at just the base of each layer so the petals could be flared out.

My tulips are 'springing' forth from the new Leafy Vine Corner. I cut mine, with a couple of it's included extra leaves, from a wonderful spring green glitter paper.

The incredible new Pointy Lattice Plate pairs well with so many other products in the shop. Be sure to check out what some of my teammates have created with it, you'll love the inspiration! As you can see, I added a few of the cut-outs back to my card for a bit more interest.

I created a fun rectangle for my sentiment by using one of those leftover cut-outs as a guide to create a notch on each side. Kind of nifty, huh?

Rainbow of Hearts & Flowers

We've had some crazy weather this winter. Unusually warm for northeast Ohio (70 in February!) and very little snow. This has put me in a cheerful mood and it's spilled over onto this card!

I began by stenciling a rainbow of pastel colors using the Criss Cross Heart Stencil. It's topped with the Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame. I just love how these coordinate together!

After running the Potpourri Flowers die through my machine, I colored the blooms with blending brushes using the same inks that were used in the background. The leaves came from the Floral Cake Pop Up Set. Once again, white cardstock inked with blending brushes. If you don't have the Say It Big Sentiments and Dies yet, I suggest you add them to your collection!

Fairy Crystals make the perfect flowers centers . I've used colors from the Autumn and Christmas sets here. On a spring card... I know, right!

I hope the spring I've imagined on my card inspires you to create one of your own!

Joyful Moments

Hello! I'm excited to be sharing my first card as a new member of the Poppystamps Design Team!

Those of you that follow my personal blog know that we have a granddaughter named Penelope. Is there any question what my first card would feature? The Penelope Pinpoint Frame, of course! After die cutting it, I added foam adhesive to the back so it could be popped up on some pretty mirrored paper.

Next, I layered on greenery from the Floral Vase Pop Up set. One cut from cardstock and one from vellum. I added very little glue, just spots here and there. This let me give some of the leaves a bit of curl.

A trio of Intricate Butterflies was cut from the same mirrored paper and cardstock. They're adheared only at their bodies so I could lift their wings!

This was indeed a joyful moment. I look forward to this journey with Poppystamps and sharing their incredible product with all of you!
