Sending You Love
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_10-05-2019_11-40-55

Die cutting, heat embossed stamping, graphite blocks, Brusho Colours, distress markers, distress crayons and gilding wax...  this is my idea of Mixed Media fun!

I may have taken some artistic license with my 'higgledy-piggledy' shed inspired design, though...  After all, in my garden the field mouse runs and hides any time a bird gets near.  But it's nice to think that somewhere they are coexisting peacefully.

Want to know how this was made?

Q-2

You'll need two die cuts from the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame And Stencil set.

Use Brusho Colours just for the pots on the first one.  Whilst that is drying, cut off the pots from the second and use Graphite blocks to colour.  Then seal using Varnish spray.

W-2

Using either die cut frame as a guide, stamp and heat emboss the words 'you' and 'love' as shown.

Qq-2

Then add some ink.  I've used the stencil from the Ribbon Heart Sidekick frame and a Memory Box stencil called 'Tiny Dots'.

Ww-2

Just like a real gardener, we are going to do some pruning!

I've cut and coloured these pieces from the Spring Pots Shelves die...

E-2

...  added some more colour to the card base ...

Ee

...  cut out a mouse, cut and partially coloured two birds and cut and glued together the word 'sending'...

R-2

...  before finally gluing the two frames together as shown!

Just a touch of gilding wax.

And then we can finally pot our flowers !

Add the finishing touches as shown and you'll have your own slightly ramshackled yet oh so pretty little garden scene.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

To All My Peeps
By Jeanne Jachna

Peeps-Five
Wow this month has been going so fast!  With the weather so fickle here in the midwest - snow one day, rain the next, I can't decide if it's Spring or Winter.  Nope!  Yes!  It's SPRING!  And we have been waiting a long time for it! 
Peeps-Two-WM
I was so worried that the bulb flowers coming up wouldn't stand a chance but they are resilient like us.  A little back tracking of cold weather isn't going to stand in our way right?  
Peeps-Four
I stamped the rows of tulips and little birds from Easter Chicks (in my part of the world I'm calling them Robins because they're back from their Winter migration) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.  The images are easy to die cut with the coordinating window style dies that you place over the images and then die cut. 
Peeps-Three
I stamped the sentiment along  the bottom of a panel that I inked with distress ink (Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, and Squeezed Lemonade).  The tulips are adhered flat to the card panel, and the little birds are adhered with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension. 
Peeps
Wishing you a beautiful spring day!

Hippity Hoppity
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Scene-Four
I enjoy making cards depicting scenes with die cuts, but it's not always easy to find images that are proportioned to work together.  I'm loving the new "whittle" series of dies because they are perfectly sized and coordinated with cute stitched detail so they're ready to play together. 
Easter-Scene
I started this card with a simple distress ink background.  I used a piece of scrap paper to create a mask inking the sky with one half of the mask, and the grassy foreground with the other.   I topped the inked panel with a Double Stitch Scallop Rectangle Frame.
Easter-Scene-Five
I set a piece of clear plastic over the panel and arranged different die cuts until I was happy with their placement.   Because the plastic is clear, the background shows through allowing me to get an idea of how the card will look when all the elements are arranged.
Easter-Scene-Two
The Doodle Happy Easter die makes a sweet sentiment.   I filled the Whittle Basket with Whittle Eggs and topped it with a Prim and Proper Bow.
Easter-Scene-Four
The Chick and Egg are not part of the "Whittle" series but it's part of the new Spring Release and looked sweet next to the basket.  Wouldn't it be fun if there were a little chick hiding inside ALL the eggs?   Now that would be a surprise wouldn't it? 
Easter-Scene-One
Enjoy your day and never stop having fun!

Blog Blitz Alcohol Inked Greenhouse
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0035

Hi everyone! Are you ready for a Spring Blog Blitz? Lots of new stamps and dies, and plenty of fun techniques from the designers.

Today I have the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame & Stencil to show you. And I've done a card with all alcohol inks die cuts. 

DSC_0022

Alcohol Inks are a fantastic way to add pizzaz to your project. They react with Yupo paper, a shiny surfaced paper, and blending solution to get a wildly colorful, rather agate like pattern, fun result. Here's one way to play with them. First I squirted my blending solution on my yupo paper. Notice it gets messy so protect your surface. Gloves are optional. 

DSC_0023

Next up I added my colors. No rhyme or reason, for this technique just go for it. 

DSC_0025

I then sandwiched a clean piece of yupo paper over my saturated sheet, in a schmooched way, pressing without moving either sheet. The result is a magical blend of wild color!

DSC_0027

Ok, friends, this was way too much fun! As you can see, I played with all color combos. And here's what I did with them:

DSC_0005_wm

A birthday card for someone who loves potted and potting plants! Now there's a stencil that is included with this die. I can't wait to use it too.

DSC_0007

This fabulous die and stencil set is the giveaway to one lucky person. Don't forget to leave a comment today and on each of the blog blitz days for a chance to win. Best of luck to you, and thanks for sticking with me through my little tutorial on alcohol inking. By the way, there are fabulous you tube videos to entice you to trying these inks. 

DSC_0043

The new release is in the store, and the blog blitz runs from Mar. 2nd - the 14th. You have until the 17th to comment. The winners will be announced on the 19th. AND here's a 2nd way for you and a friend you choose to win... Visit us on Instagram, follow us, like the post you want to win, leave a comment and tag a friend. It's that easy!

Other dies I've included are listed below. Have a great week, and hope you enjoy the blitz!

Christmas Eve Ride

Midnight-Ride-Two

Can you believe it's almost Christmas?  Santa rides tonight!    When I was young we'd visit my Grandmother every Christmas Eve.   I remember the the news coming on and the announcer telling us that Santa was spotted in our area.  I'd look out the car window searching the starry sky for just a glimpse!   Is anything more magical?

Midnight-Ride-Two

The background is a simple distress ink panel.    I added a snow Stitched Hill with a stamped sentiment to the bottom half of the card.  Tree Trunks are tucked in behind the hill and layered yellow circle die cuts are tucked under the tree trunks.   Stanta's Sleigh is cut from black card stock to create a silhouette as he flies across the moon.

Midnight-Ride-Two

The Poppystamps die cut houses are easy to assemble.  They all come in three layers.  The bottom layer I cut from yellow to create a glow of light coming from inside the homes.  The next layer is the curtain color.  Lastly the exterior house color is stacked on top.  There are accent pieces included to embellish the houses with colorful roofs and chimneys.

Midnight-Ride-Two

I added some glossy accents sprinkled with ultra fine crystal glitter to look like paths leading from the homes.   I love adding little details to scenes to help bring them to life. 
Midnight-Ride-Two

Wishes from me to you for a wonderful Christmas!

Holiday Place Cards
by Robin Tharaldson

Holiday Place Card Full With

I'm not sure how many of you set your holiday table with place cards but my mom and grandmom ALWAYS had place cards! Hopefully it's not another  tradition falling by the wayside. I still use place cards; because I know not to have my Aunt sit next to a certain cousin...not going there!!! I made these super simple place cards using Poppystamps Double Stitch Tags, Tree Line Hill die and Memory Box Open Studio Pinpoint Scalloped Circles!

Holiday Place Card CU1 With

I cut two, of the Pinpoint Scalloped Circles, from white card stock to create the base of my place card. The little piercings around the edge are so pretty!

Holiday Place Card CU2 With

I added a little snow to the Tree Line Hill die cut using Simply White  Nuvo Crystal Drops; just needed a little something. I used the smallest of the Double Stitch Tags dies to create the name tag that slips behind the trees! I added the name using a thick white gel pen!

Holiday Place Card CU3 With

Here's a side view to show you how the place card stands up; you could even put a few chocolates inside!!  The following video shows how to assemble the Holiday Place Card!!

 

I hope you give this simple project a try; I think it would look great using kraft card stock as the background for a more rustic feel!! Thanks for stopping by and check out the Poppystamps Blog for more holiday project ideas!
