Hello Birthday Girl
by Lezlye Lauterbach

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! I hope to provide you with some inspiration using dies, stencil and glimmer paste. I have used several Poppystamps dies to create this one of a kind card. Today I have a Very Special card that I have made for my Mother  for her 79th Birthday, she has Dementia and I am her Caregiver Daizypoppy

First I created my background panel, using a stitched oval Memory Box CO die and a Memory Box stencil (diapers) to push the Nuvo Glimmer paste through. I used a Purple shade. Allow some dry time before removing the stencil, however do not let it dry completely.

Oval stencil on a 4.25 x 5.5 panel for stencil mask. Then add the stencil and line up with another panel of the same size, you will cut it down to 3.75 x 5 after it's done and dried.

Spread the Nuvo Glimmer Paste through the stencil with a spatula, allow to semi dry and remove stencil before it drys completely.

Have a Magical Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my big sister's magical, garden, birthday card.  Enjoy!

Poppy Have a Magical Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping those Watercolor Wildflowers, that I simply cannot get enough of, in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks, on watercolor paper.  I then spritzed over them with water to get more of a watercolor effect and splattered everything with those same shades of Distress Inks mentioned above, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  That set the foundation for my garden.  While it was drying, I pieced together the Blooming Poppy with Real Red, Basic Black, and Garden Green cardstock die cuts and the Ragged Daisy with white, Daffodil Delight, and Lucky Limeade cardstock die cuts.  Once they were adhered, in their respective positions, to the watercolor piece, I grounded them with a Preppy Flowers, Wild Wasabi cardstock die cut.

The prepped piece was then anchored, to the Pistachio Pudding cardstock card face, with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  The Magnificent Mini Faeries were die-cut from Basic Black and white cardstocks; pieced together; and adhered, with foam tape, within the garden itself.  Their wings also got a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella for shimmer and shine.

5.20.17 047

I then die-cut the Pinpoint Balloons from Coastal Cabana cardstock; adhered them, in their respective locations; also gave them some shimmer and shine with Clear Wink of Stella, coated with Glossy Accents; and anchored them to the faeries' fists with hand-penned strings.

5.20.17 052

The black-embossed, "HAVE A magical BIRTHDAY" sentiment, from Fairy Greetings, completes the look.

Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit, Poppystamps friends!  Have a terrific Tuesday!  Hugs!

Princess Faerie Silhouette.
by Pam Simpson

Hello Poppystamps friends, sharing a  card with you today, I must confess I was not a fan of  Fairies, WOW change my mind since these pretty dies came along from Poppystamps May release.

IMG_0370-crop

Thought I would create a woodland scene with "Princess Faerie"  as a silhouette.. I`m sure she would look  just as pretty with no wings, as a child dancer.

Page

I have die cut three fairies to add depth, wings have been cut with sparkly black card.. I used foam sticky tape  on the back.

IMG_0366-crop

In this photo is my very old "Angelina Fusible Fibre"  you get in a  packet, you pull some fibres out and lay a thin layer onto half a sheet of folded copy paper, sandwich the fibres by folding the  paper over, then using a med heat iron onto the paper, iron the fibres together, this makes it fuse together.. I adhered my wings with pva glue and cut around with scissors.

IMG_0373-crop

Added a touch of blue ink to the white background.

These fibres give a lovely delicate look to her wings. I adhered them to the silhouette with pva glue.

IMG_0375-crop

I grounded her onto the Dotted Curve, stamped with the new Fairy Greetings.. Swaying Birch has been cut in grey card and inked some shading in grey, Chirping Birds in the branch`s. 

Magnificent Mini Faeries  with Mushrooms and Toadstools .

dotted a few crystal gems. finished card size 5.1/2" x 6.1/2".

Hope you like this card..my first attempt with Faerie`s..

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Gentle Leaf Collage
by Sue McRae

P1350358c

Hello crafters, welcome to another day of our blog blitz!

P1350312c

I started off my card by using the Gentle Leaf Collage, die cutting it from card stock and using this piece as a stencil. I used glitter embossing paste in green with a hint of blue for the leaves and love the pretty sparkle. This is such a great way to get more mileage from your dies!

P1350350c

I wanted a defined edge for my panel so I tapped a Versamark ink pad around the edge of the card stock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set.

P1350361c

To continue with the gold theme I flicked gold paint onto the panel.

P1350337c

I die cut the Little Luxe Hello from black card stock and stamped the word friend from the Sentiments of Hello stamp set.

P1350319c

To finish off, I mounted my panel onto black card stock and added a few black pearls.

Remember to leave a comment on each blog post during the blog blitz for your chance to win the featured product.

Today I'm giving away the Gentle Leaf Collage.

Thanks so much for visiting with me!

Big Halo Hello
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0007

Hello, and hope all the moms had a Happy Mother's Day!

It's Blog Blitz time at Poppy Stamps!

And I'm happy to be joining the Poppy Design team with my very first post.

Meet a new word die called, Big Halo Hello.

DSC_0006 3

Nancy Floral Watermark copy

There's so much you can do with a large word die. 

Dave did a beautiful watercolor background to showcase his card using this die.

Take a look at another way to make your word dies pop.

DSC_0001

The large word die, 'Hello', comes in 2 pieces, wired together, which I snipped apart.

The larger, fatter die, I die cut on an angle, on the front of my card, giving me a window.

After rainbow inking the larger die cut, I replaced it in the window cutout, gluing it in place.

The smaller, skinny hello, I cut several times, all from white card stock, gluing them on the front

of the card, and snipping off the edges. Really gives it a dramatic embossed look, don't you think?

DSC_0015

You  can see what the inside of the card looks like. Still plenty of room for your message.

DSC_0009

Here's a look at another card using this method, in cooler rainbow colors!

Would you like to win this new Big Halo Hello?

You can win a die featured each day during the blitz, from May 10 - May 21

Just leave a comment on each post and you'll be entered to win.

Winners announced on the 24th. Be sure to check back to see if you've won!
