Valentine Blog Blitz CU1 With

My project uses products from Poppystamps 2019 Valentine's Release!!  I used Big Donut and Little Donut dies plus Donut What I'd Do stamp and die set! I did not snip the Big Donut dies apart but cut all of the dies from three different colored card stock! That way I was able to create three cards pretty fast!!

Valentine Blog Blitz CU2 With

Donut know what it is but there is something about using the colors white, pink and chocolate; they just go together so well! The cute little heart sprinkles were cut three times from each color; you can never have too many sprinkles!!! I finished my cards by adding Tonic Crystal Glaze to the sprinkles and added a few moonstone sequins.

Mistletoe & Holly
by Jeanne Jachna

Holly-Joy-Three

Are you making your own Holiday cards this year? I always try to make at least enough for very close friends and family and write a personal greeting inside.  I know that the time and effort put into each one is appreciated.
Holly-Joy-Five
If you love to color you can make lots of these pretty cards with the Mistletoe & Holly stamp set with coordinating dies.  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink  and colored them with Copic markers.  When I started crafting I bought lots of different marker brands.  I avoided Copics because I felt they were too expensive.  Over time I've realized they are a great investment because they are refillable and the nibs are replaceable too.  The refill ink costs about the same as the original marker investment, and will refill the marker approximately 12 times.  With other marker brands I'd would have to buy the entire set again since most don't sell just one marker in the particular shade I need.  
Holly-Joy-One

The coordinating window dies makes the stamped images easy to align and cut.   I always lay out the arranged pieces on a piece of plastic the same size as my card base.  Then I can pick up the sheet and place it over different color background and find the one I like best. I decided on pink Spun Sugar distress ink for the background this time.   It looks pretty with the green foliage and red berries.  The panel was splattered with water, some watered down Picked Raspberry and finally some white ink.
Holly-Joy-Four
Double Stitched Rectangle Frames are layered over the distress ink panel to add detail and texture.
Holly-Joy-Two
The Joy Outline die is a two die set - one of the dies includes the detailed letters, the second die is a background die.  It's versatile because you can use the letters only, or stack them on the background die. 
Holly-Joy

Have a great day!  And 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!

Peace Poinsettias
by Jeanne Jachna

Stamped-Poinsettias-Five

Jeanne here today!  I'm playing with the new Poinsettia Delights stamp set with coordinating dies.  I enjoy coloring stamped images and find it very relaxing, but around the holidays I just don't have time to color lots of images for cards....  there's too many other fun things to do!!    This technique adds loads of color without all the extra work. Here's a look at the card I'm sharing today!

Stamped-Poinsettias-Two

I started by stamping the images on colored paper.  I love poinsettias in all shades of reds - pink included!   I also stamped the foliage in different shades of green using colored ink on colored card stock. 

Stamped-Poinsettias

The coordinating die cuts makes these easy to cut.  The window design dies make them easy to line up over the stamped images.  Just secure them in place with some removable tape - I used inexpensive washi. 

Stamped-Poinsettias-Two

Now for the fun part.. arranging the die cut flowers and leaves.  I like to use a sheet of heavy clear plastic (these were binder dividers) cut to the size of my card base.  The clear plastic allows me to pick up the arrangement and layer it over different colored backgrounds so it's easier to choose the color I like best!



Stamped-Poinsettias-Two
To add more interest to the background I cut the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames from turquoise card stock.  I adhered them to a panel of aqua paper before adhering the die cut stamped images. 

Stamped-Poinsettias-Two

The leaves are adhered to the card base while the flowers are adhered with adhesive foam tape for dimension.

 Stamped-Poinsettias-Two

 Some colorful sequins add sparkle and shine and a simple "peace" sentiment cut from white card stock completes the card.

 It's absolutely merry and bright!

I decided to use a #10 envelope for my cards this year! It's still first class postage but has that different look! The #10 envelopes I am using are from Paper Source and are much heavier than a standard office supply envelope. 

BlogBlitzAug3 CU1 With

My Joy to The World card features several of the dies from the Holiday Release! For the background of the ornaments I used the largest of the Retro Ornaments dies and then embossed them using a snowflake embossing folder.

BlogBlitzAug3 CU2 With

For my JOY I used the Joy Outline die set! I cut the outline three times from white cardstock, stacked together to create more dimension and then added a single layer of the red joy! The following video will show you how to create this card!

Holiday Release Blog Blitz Begins
by Jeanne Jachna

Mittens-Five

It's Christmas in July as we kick off our Holiday Release blog blitz!  Our blog blitz is a time we set aside to show you projects with the latest dies, and better yet.. we offer you a chance to win some for yourself! 
Mittens-Two
I love non traditional colors for the holidays.  The unexpected colors  are a stand out and a fun twist from the conventional.  I started by cutting the Atessa Collage from light pink card stock.  I layered it over a fuchsia card stock allowing the rich dark color to peek through the die cut openings and around the outer edges.  I usually set an acrylic block over my die cuts to help them stay flat and dry in place. The clear block allows me to keep making - deciding what die cut to put where - since the base is still visible.
Mittens-Three

A bit of tape on the reverse side of the mittens holds the red inlay hearts and twine to connect the mittens in place.

Mittens-Six
I  repeated the colors of the mittens (red and aqua) in the "Merry" die cut sentiment.   Repeating colors always helps coordinate your design.
Mittens-Four
 I embellished the card with snowflakes (also from the new release) called Linked Snowflake Trio.  I added some jewels to the snowflake centers and scattered a few more for  sparkle.
Mittens

I always use a stencil brush to sweep away the little bits of debris left when die cutting.  I'm smitten with this 5/8" Crafters Choice from Royal & Langnickel (only $2.50 at Joann).
Mittens-One
And now the part you've been waiting for.. the prize on this post is the Pinpoint  Heart Mittens die.

Let me fill you in on all the details ok?

The blog blitz runs from July 26-August 4. We'll be giving away a prize on every blog blitz post during this time. To enter to win you need to leave a comment on ONLY the posts that you wish to enter. To enter ALL the posts during the blog blitz you need to leave a comment on EACH ONE.

Summer Release Blog Blitz-To a Special Friend
by Robin Tharaldson

PS June 26 Full With

I hope you have seen the latest release from Poppystamps...no? Well here's the link to see all the new products Summer Release! PLUS, you could win the Daisy Frame die from the Summer Release, more information at the end of my post! The pretty background die on my card is the Daisy Frame!! This die is 4" square and is very versatile! For this card I cut the Daisy Frame three times, yes I know, I do that a lot, BUT I love how it looks!

PS June 26 CU1 With

Also new to this release is the Friend Folksy Script die; just a super fun font! I layered three together, he he he, for more dimension and used a sentiment from the Fairy Wishes stamp set. I cut one sentiment (Special Friend) apart and added it to another (To A), to create the exact wording I wanted on my card.

PS June 26 CU2 With

The dark grey cardstock I used was a nice compliment to the light pink cardstock. It's a nice contrast but much softer looking than black! The following video will show you how to put this card together!

Woven Circle Shaker Card
by Robin Tharaldson

May 30 Shaker Full With

Hi everyone! Today, my inspiration is a shaker card using the Woven Circle Ring die by Poppystamps!  This die creates a fast and easy shaker card; I can see it being used for the holidays with just a change of sequin color and sentiment!

May 30 Shaker CU1 With

I used a sparkly gold paper from Tim Holtz to cut out my "Sparkly" word and then layered more die cuts to create a dimensional word!

May 30 Shaker CU2 With

Sequins, from Dress My Craft, were used to fill the shaker area! Love this mix of sparkle and shine! The following video will show you just how easy it was to create this card!

 

See, that was pretty easy, right? Sometimes the simple designs work the best!

May 30 Shaker CU3 With

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will come back soon for more inspiration on Poppystamps blog!

Who You Gonna Call?
byJeanne Jachna

  Who-You-Gonna-Call-Three

I hope you're having a great day!  I'm playing with the new Rotary Phone die today!  I think this die is so cute.  It cuts as three pieces the phone base, cord, and hand set. You can trim the cord to make it shorter or keep it long to have the hand set in different positions. Here's what I made!
Who-You-Gonna-Call
I was thinking about the three phones and how to connect them - like a conversation.  I decided to adhere them on different size circles and then connect the circles by over lapping them.  I used three shades of pink card stock and silver glitter paper - changing the combinations so no two circles are exactly alike. 
Who-You-Gonna-Call-One
I stamped the sentiment from "Call Me" on a white card stock panel.  Then I arranged the rings on the card stock.  When I was happy with the placement I adhered them with liquid glue in a needle tip applicator.  The wet glue gave me some time to move things into place before they were stuck for good!   I tucked the circle centers under the ring frames. 
Who-You-Gonna-Call-Two
I used the Pointed Circle Frames and Double Stitch Circle Frames to add some interest.  The frames are two different widths  - so while they don't match, they still work because they're both circles.  The blingy rhinestones repeat the circle pattern.
Who-You-Gonna-Call-Four

I love the playful look of the finished card!  I hope you find some time to make today! Jeanne Floral Signature copy
