Happy Easter

Hi and welcome! If you love bright, happy and spring color, you're in for a treat today! Nancy here and I've been playing with Poppystamps' newest release. Oh my, Spring Bliss!

Have you created a slimline card yet? I'll share a secret with you, this is my first. Couldn't resist Poppy's new Leafy Vines Slim Plate. It packs a wow on a slim line card! Here's a quick and easy 'how to' for you.

Here's a photo of measurements that will get you the base for a slim line card. 8" x 8 3/4", fold down the middle, and the beautiful Leafy Vines Slim Plate fits perfectly on the card's front, with a nice edged frame too.

Then the fun begins! Pale Eastery pastel? Monotone single color? Or Bright no holds barred wake up color! Just had to celebrate the season's change with a bold punch of color for this card!

My card's a slimline shaker with the new Farm Fresh Eggs cut from Glitter Card Stock moving around inside. I threw in some spring sequins too.

Pretty much an afternoon of decorating bliss on the front of a card! The slim lines fit easily in a business size envelope, or you can find colors online on Amazon and many  hobby stores too.

Hope you're inspired to try a slimline. Be sure to check out the Poppystamps' store for all the newest stamps and dies. And a big shoutout to our sister stores, Memory Box and Birch Press for their latest. New paper packs that will thrill! Hugs, all!

With Love

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

DSC_0160_wm

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.

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!

Shake it up, Valentine

Hi and welcome to my post! Nancy here, and the craft room table is filled with hearts! A sign of the season of love, for sure! And who doesn't need some love right now?

Hearts and flowers... what says, 'I love you' better? And the Poppystamps shop is full hearts!

DSC_0121

I gathered my goodies, knowing my card was to be a shaker. 

DSC_0129

The shaker heart is filled with valentine sequins and hearts from my stash, and fit perfectly over the pattern paper from Memory Box. Products will be listed below, and will take you to the shops for purchase.

DSC_0135

You can see how I popped up the Curve Background die cuts, the height of the the heart shaker.
