Huckleberry Gift Tags by Jennifer Svare

Huckleberry6_Watermark

Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I am so excited to be a new member of the Poppystamps Design Team!  It was so much fun designing these huckleberry gift tags using the Pinpoint Main Street Tag set, along with the Holly Twig die from the new holiday release. To modify the design, I replaced the holly leaves with the leaves from the Viola Leaves die set. This tag features a swing-out card attached with an eyelet under the bow, so a favorite huckleberry recipe or note can be shared.  Two versions of berries are shown. 

Instructions are on the step-by-step video tutorial below!

Sending Hugs and Prayers
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0032

Hi Everyone! It's Nancy, giving you a look at one of the new dies , Brilliant Leaf Frame.

DSC_0027

Isn't this the most beautiful frame die? It's really one for all seasons, and as I've used here, for many purposes.

Here's what and how I created it:

DSC_0006

Using another new set just released, Sending Scribbles, I gold embossed my sentiment onto black card stock.

Then I die cut the leaf frame from gold foil and white shimmer card stock.

DSC_0009

2 frames means I could make 2 cards, and that's just what I did.

DSC_0029

One in gold and one with white leaves.

DSC_0030

Gold embossed the sweet leaf trio from Sending Scribbles on a couple of envelopes, and 2 cards done and ready to mail!

Hope you enjoyed a look at one of the loveliest new dies and new stamp set from Poppystamps.

Both are available for purchase in the shop now.

Little Kindness.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today, sharing  a card using these new Poppystamps "Little Kindness" clear stamps and matching die set.

IMG_0646-crop

I have used heat embossable  Velum, clear Veramark ink pad, with "Stamp N Stuff"  Winter Wonderland embossing powder..Wish you could see the sparkle on these flowers and leaves.

IMG_0648-crop

Sentiment from the stamp set, Wow white embossing powder.

IMG_0645-crop

How I used my Misti for the placement of these stamps.

IMG_0642-crop

Showing you how these new "Pointed Oval Frames"  cut...I decided not to use this white and went with blue..(said before I tend to change my mind).. oval placed in the centre of a 6" square.

IMG_0643-crop

This is the card that has been die cut in my die cutting machine..Love the way these New Poppystamp Frames give you three possibilities to use on your projects.. 

IMG_0653-crop

I used just the white frame on my project.

IMG_0644-crop

"Delicate Stitches" make  lovely detail around your card, as they do not have a cutting edge! so can be placed anywhere you decide to use them.    

IMG_0649-crop

I have used "Butterfly Sprinkles"...Novo Jewel Drops around the border and in the oval, flowers I used some gems.

Good Things
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_4635-wm

Hello Everyone!

Have you fallen in love with the beautiful new Poppystamps clear photopolymer stamp sets yet? Our entire team is crazy for these fun floral images, which is why you'll be seeing a lot of amazing stamped designs in the coming weeks. Today, I am sharing a cheerful CAS card I created with the Sending Scribbles stamp set, and the new Pointed Rectangle Frames. Take a look!

 

IMG_4630-wm

I went super CAS with this pretty purple rose and sentiments from Sending Scribbles. I started by cutting out my card base out of white card stock, then cutting out my frame, which has these modern pin point details around the edges.

IMG_4626-wm

I wanted my rose, leaves, heart, and sentiment to rally stand out, so I used clear embossing powder and a heat gun to give the lines a raised, shiny edge. The embossing adds a wonderful smooth feel to the images.

IMG_4628-wm

I always glue the frames down last, but I keep using the frame to help center my images before I stamp. I also will help plan my designs by arranging the stamps themselves, or by using a scrap piece of card stock to practice my inking technique.

IMG_4629-wm

Once I'm happy with the design, I stamp the images directly on to the card stock, sprinkle the embossing powder, then heat it with a heat gun until the image sets. I added the leaves after masking the rose and stamping directly onto the card stock. These clear images work beautifully for masking and stamping techniques.

IMG_4633-wm

Once my embossing was finished, I colored the images with copic markers and added a few purple sequins. Super CAS and will lie nice and flat in the envelope. By the time I was ready to add the frame, I thought it would look better in the purple than the green.

Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0010

I'm so excited to be introducing some new stamp and die sets today!  'Little Kindness' will have you feeling happy from first sight.  I  created my own background paper to feature the flowers and leaves in the set.

DSC_0004

Made all my elements first, including the bg paper, with a tiny 'dot' stamp in another   set called, 'Peony Stems and Blossoms'.  When the stamping and water coloring was done, I gave my bg paper some bling with Mr. Huey's Shine.  1' strip of glitter paper was cut long so I could cut it the length I wanted at the end.

DSC_0006

Sentiment from another new set with 2 bold script words and fun sentences called, 'Magic And Sparkle'.

DSC_0013

It's so easy to die cut images with Poppy's perfect cut out dies!  I first stamped and watercolored my blooms and leaves, then placed the die over the image, and cut them with my machine.

There are so many people in my life I'd love to give this card to! Special people that truly make the world a better place!  That's it for today, folks. Hope you use my card as inspiration for this month's 'Bling It' challenge, going on now.  and be sure to check out all the new sets at Poppy!

Life Is Full of Magic
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here.  I created a little number, using some new goodies from the latest 2017 Holiday Release, and wanted to share it with you all today.  My thought process behind this card was to make it look as though the largest of the new Jar Collection craft dies were used to collect treasures from a child's garden hunt.

Poppy Life is Full of Magic - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of watercolor paper, in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Barn Door, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks, with images from Birch Press Design's Watercolor Wildflowers stamp set.  Y'all, I just can't get enough of these gorgeous blooms.  Swoon!  I then spritzed everything with water just to fade the flowers into the background before splattering over them with watered-down Tumbled Glass and Barn Door Distress Inks, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.

Poppy Life is Full of Magic closeup - JinnyNewlin

Once everything was dry, I stamped the "LIFE IS FULL OF magic" sentiment, from a sweet, little, new, Believe in Magic stamp set, in Jet Black ink, along the vertical left edge of the prepped piece before framing it with Pool Party cardstock and white-threaded, straight, machine stitching.7.12.17 009

The jar itself was then die-cut from clear cardstock and filled with a Tomei Branch, die-cut from Always Artichoke cardstock; Pine Twig, die-cut from Garden Green cardstock; Ragged Daisy, die-cut from Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, and white cardstocks; and the new Sugarplum Faerie, die-cut from watercolor paper.

7.12.17 012

The fairy was also painted with watercolors; and a simple button, not to mention a snippet of cheesecloth, fills the jar completely.

7.12.17 027

To secure the jar to the prepped piece without showing any adhesive, I also partially die-cut and partially hand-cut it from Going Gray and Soft Suede cardstocks to create the foundation of dirt and the lid.  It was not adhered in any other places other than the top and bottom bits.  The lid was also wrapped with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow; and a die-cut, from Riding Hood Red cardstock, Stitched Butterfly, which was embellished with a single pearl and lots of Clear Wink of Stella for shimmer and shine, completes the look.

7.12.17 017

Thanks so much for stopping by, Poppystamps friends!  Be blessed!

I foam taped these flowers, onto an Open Studio "Stitched Oval"
