Sea of Love Challenge Reminder
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Challenge June 2019 Full WITH

Have you entered Poppystamps challenge, PSC#57 Summer Holiday, yet??? No! Well why not? It's as easy as making a project with a summer holiday theme and use one Poppystamps product!  My card features the Wavy Heart die and everytime I see this die I think of the Honeydrippers cover of the song, Sea of Love!  Reminds me of a summer holiday romance, LOL!!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU1 WITH

For my background I used Memory Box Sprinkle Dots stencil which I colored with blue ink to match my heart die cut. I cut a solid heart from scrap paper and adhered the individual pieces from the die cut onto the solid heart!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU3 WITH

Sometimes you just HAVE to make your own sentiments and this was no exception! I used the font, American Typewriter, a few of the lyrics from the song and just hit print on my computer; easy peasy! I then cut the lyrics apart and joined them together with a small brad!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU2  With

I finished my card with a simple sentiment from Poppystamps Sending Love stamp set! Here's a quick video showing how this card was made!

Time to Celebrate
by Robin Tharaldson

May 30 Celebrate Full WITH

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by the Poppystamps blog! This card is one of many I try to keep in my "any occasion" stash! With the addition of a simple sentiment this card could be used for weddings, birthdays, promotions, etc!

May 30 Celebrate CU1 WITH

I used the Finial Circle die and cut it out two times with coordinating cardstock. I then "wove" them together and attached to my card panel!

May 30 Celebrate CU2 WITH

My sentiment is from the Birthday Blowout stamp set. I heat embossed it with a copper embossing powder onto a piece of vellum that I wrapped around a light grey cardstock.

May 30 Celebrate CU3 WITH

I really like the wreath encircling the sentiment. I purposefully did not adhere the entire wreath to the panel; I wanted a bit of dimension with the sprigs.

All products used are listed at the bottom of my post and I hope you will give this "generic" card a try! 

Thanks for stopping by...

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.

May23 Hugs CU2 WITH

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.

May23 Hugs CU3 NO

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!

Hi and welcome to my Poppystamps Challenge reminder! This is a SUPER easy challenge! Just use washi tape and/or a wish sentiment, for example a birthday greeting! You also need to use one Poppystamps stamp or die product!

May Challenge CU1 WITH

For my wishi part of the challenge I used a sentiment from the Birthday Blowout stamp set.

Someone Special!
by Robin Tharaldson

April 30 Full WITH

Thanks for stopping by Poppystamps blog today! My card features pretty Spring flowers for a special someone!! The products I used are listed at the end of my post with links to the Poppystamps shop for your convenience! 

April 30 CU1 WITH

I really like the pretty, bright Spring flowers! This card just says "happy" to me, lol!!!

April 30 CU2 WITH

By using the Double Stitch Circle Frames I was able to create a circle on my card panel; another use for frame dies!!

April 30 CU3 WITH

To stamp my images I used a slightly different technique, one that was not so easy until stamp positioners became available. My video shows how to stamp with more accuracy onto pre cut die-cuts!!

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!

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!
