Flower Garden
by Marybeth Lopez

Hi there! Hope you off to a great start for April! I am using the new Flower Garden stamp set from Poppystamps . It's a full large stamp with lots of sentiments.  I stamped the background  in a soft pink .

I also used the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil , also from Poppystamps ! I placed the stencil over my die cut front panel then sponged with the same color as the background flowers. I made it a bit darker by going over it a few times.

I cut a few greens from the Poppystamps die Spring Pots Shelves. I didn't want the card too busy ,as I already have a lot going on with the background . I just added some greens to one pot, I sniped the greens off the pots and put them all into one.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, with some sunshine too! Spring is in full bloom here in California with all the rain we had this year.

Have fun if you go shopping at the Poppystamps store!

Sprinkled With Love
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_20-02-2019_09-57-13-2

If you know someone who likes the occasional sweet treat, perhaps this quick and easy make is for you!

Here's a quick 'how to' guide...

FullSizeRender

Start by creating the background using the smaller of the two dies in the Deco Victor Square set.

You'll be using the die cut as a stencil.  I've used temporary spray adhesive to hold my dies in place whilst I add the Distress Oxide ink.

As you can see, I've also added water splashes and dried them off before removing the die cuts.

FullSizeRender 2

Next, cut out the dies you will need and glue them together.

I've chosen the 'Sprinkled With Love' sentiment from the cute Donut What I'd Do set, stamped it on Heat Resistant acetate and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  

(Don't forget to use your anti static pad or it's equivalent first).

As my Heat Resistant acetate is quite flimsy I decided that a second layer from scrap packaging was needed.  Here's a photo that shows what that looks like...

_DSC9950-2

Before gluing everything into position the acetate needs to be cut to size...  which means folding and securing one end over the donuts.

Snapseed

As you can see, I've used a small staple to attach the two layers, then secured it in place with a piece of red liner tape.

I've also cut out an extra donut shape from scrap packaging, trimmed it down and attached that as shown to offset the height of the staple. 

The donut hole came in handy, too!  I added an extra layer after this photo was taken and a small piece of red liner tape right along the bottom edge of the cupcake.

_DSC9952-Edit-2

Here's the finished card again...  with the length of the acetate strip adjusted.  That small piece of red liner tape under the Whittle Cupcake stops it from escaping!

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my fun make!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Valentine Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0071

Hello, Poppy Peeps! Didn't you just love all the new Valentine Stamps and dies showcased these past two weeks? I have a Valentine card for you using some of the new release. Come along and take a look.

DSC_0068_wm

Hearts are the image of love and Valentines. And Poppy has a new die called Wavy Heart I'm lovin'!

You'll be happy to know Wavy Heart fits perfectly inside the new Pinpoint Hearts dies.

DSC_0001

Like I said, a perfect fit!

DSC_0070

I gave my background some glam with the heart stencil that comes with Sidekick frame. Not too much, just some subtle heart texture. And sponge inked the wavy heart with Oxide pinks, keeping all the die cut pieces in place.

DSC_0076

My die cut sentiment, from Doodle Happy Valentines Day is cut twice, once from silver and then backed with black. Love to back my die cut sentiments, really makes them stand out.

DSC_0007

Hope you're inspired today, and hope I got some creative juices flowing! Happy Crafting, all!

by Nancy Penir

DSC_0050

Hi! Are you loving the blog blitz so far? I'm here with another chance for you to win a new die, Whittle Cupcake. I had so much fun with this new die, and I know you're going to love it too. It's part of the Whittle series, which plays so well with the other Whittles. 

DSC_0049_wm

Here's a peek at how I made my Valentine card.

DSC_0008 2

The cupcake die cuts in two pieces, the top and bottom, and gives you the option of coloring or decorating your cupcake in so many ways. I used copics in bright pink and blue. Then blended with my colorless blender.

DSC_0052

My trio of cupcakes were 'sprinkled' with Nuvo drops, and decorated with a heart embellished with glossy accents. All the supplies I used are listed below, and are in the shop.

Now here's the good news. There are a few ways for you to win this cupcake die. Leave a comment on my blog. And visit us on Instagram, like all the posts during the blitz that you'd like to win, and leave a comment and tag a friend. You and your friend could win! It's a win win!

It's That Time of Year
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0047

Hi and Happy Holidays everyone! Nancy here today with a card made some of the new dies from Poppy.

DSC_0042

I'm absolutely in love with the new Whittles, and LOVE how they all work together.

DSC_0033

I created my own textured background by using the smaller Whittle Wood Frame die, and cutting it several times from stamping masking paper. (You can find it on Amazon, I used Inkadinkado.)

DSC_0038
The masking paper allows for effortless inking with a sponge tool. I then added some white opaque droplets onto my card front. When all was dry, I cut out a window for my Whittle Rudolph, inking it around the edges in light blue. My frame is cut several times and inked as well.

DSC_0044

If you look closely at Rudolph, you can see that I inked him a bit around the edges to give him depth, and lightened his mane with a white pencil. Can't forget to mention the cute little red rhinestone nose!

Hope you're inspired to try something new, (if this is new to you), with your backgrounds and dies.

Happy Crafting!

For Unto Us

DSC_0006

Greetings! Nancy here, with a super simple Christmas card. As you know, Poppy's dies pack a big wallop, and togetheer with a Poppy stencil... well, just look.

DSC_0001

Using just the stencil from Nativity Scene Sidekick Frame and Stencil, I washi taped down the stencil and gave it some inking.

DSC_0002

I used dark blue shimmer cardstock to cut my Simple Bethlehem Stitched Frame die. DSC_0005

Assembly was easy breezy, and I framed the finished scene with a sentiment, and the largest frame from Double Stitch Rectangle Frame.

DSC_0009

Hope this gives you some ideas to add to your card stash. Happy Crafting!

Merry Tags Card
by Robin Tharaldson

Sept22 Merry Full With

 

My project for today is featuring more products from Poppystamps 2018 Holiday release! If you haven't checked out the new dies and stamps just click HERE! For my tags I used the stencil that comes with Pinpoint Snowflake Sidekick Frame die set! What a great addition and so many uses!! My tags are framed using the smallest die from Stitchwork Rectangle Frames die set. 

Sept22 Merry CU2 NO

I have once again created a card that uses an A-10 (business) format; just a different look and still uses a first class stamp! As long as it isn't too heavy or exceeds 1/4" thick, lol! This size lets you be really creative with composition and design!

Sept22 Merry CU1 With

To finish my card I used Liquid Pearls to create the look of falling snow; I would much rather have just flicked some white paint, but we are still in the middle of a remodel and I can't find my white paint...along with a few other crafting necessities!

The following video will show you how this card goes together! 


Thanks for stopping by!
