Blog Blitz ~ Tall Sketch Daisies
by Jennifer Svare

Sketch Flowers2

Hello!  This new release is so much fun, and I love seeing all the new dies in beautiful creations!  Today I'll be sharing a tutorial of  this card in the video below.  The Tall Sketch Daisies created a shadowed effect with white against kraft card stock.  Along the way, I discovered a cool trick with using white-on-white that results in a beautiful, soft, cushy look. I'll show it in the video, but a hint:  watercolor paper!

Just a few light colored crystals added a subtle sparkle and I love how simple this card is to make. Great for any occasion!

Blog Blitz: Summer Release!
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0062

Hi Everybody! We're celebrating a Blog Blitz here at Poppystamps. And if you love the die I'm showcasing, LEAVE A COMMENT! That's all you have to do, and you might win this darling Delicate Branch Collage die. 

DSC_0054

Couldn't resist making it into a  shaker. Like to make one similar? Here's a rundown of my how-to's.

DSC_0049

First I stenciled a card base with MB's Texture Dot Grid. I'm all about layers. And depth. and pattern. The more the merrier!

As you can see, I stenciled 3 shades of ink onto my card, not worrying about anything in the center, that part will be covered.

DSC_0052

I inked up a white linen look cardstock in blue and purple, before cutting out with my die. 

Also cut it again, so I could use just the branches. Notice I used my die with the branches on top. I knew I was going to add a sentiment on the bottom, so I wanted to keep the bottom clean.

Friend Folksy Scrip is one of the new dies being released too. Stay tuned for one of the other designers featuring it as her giveaway. 

DSC_0063

I cut my scrip die twice, once from navy blue cardstock, then from white. I love doubling up my dies, for added depth. Did I mention I LOVE layering? Couldn't resist adding a bit of Wink of Stella to my word die.

Someone's gonna win, hope it's you!

I diecut the word die out three times then glued each layer on top of the other . After placing where I wanted I added a bit of shimmer pen to make it pop. Something you can see in person better.

I cut apart the Finial Circle die , glued on the front panel and also used shimmer pen .

IMG_4115

I kept the first word die in place so it was easy to layer.

Poppystamps Challenge: For the Boys
by Jennifer Svare


Masculine2

Hello!  Are you playing along with the challenge this month?  One random winner will be chosen from all entries, and entering is easy!  The theme is Masculine, and more details can be found here!  

Masculine3

For my card, I chose three shades of blue for the base colors.  I made small strips of the medium and light, and glued them to lightweight cardstock.  Next, I die cut the large sailboat from the Marina Sailboats set, and that created a perfectly striped sailboat.  

Masculine8

I die cut the Scribble Circle Collage out of the dark blue background, and used distress oxides to create a sunset (or sunrise) onto a white background that is glued behind it.   

 

Masculine4

This is going to be my brother's birthday card, so I used the Scribble Happy Birthday for the greeting inside.  

Super simple card, and really fast to make!  I could see this same overall design being used with the flamingo, or any other die used as a silhouette.  So many colors and designs could be used...   Be sure to check out the video below for more details on how this card was created.

 

I can't wait to see all the challenge cards this month - lots of great ideas out there, and we would love to see yours next!

Summer Release Blog Blitz Begins!
byJeanne Jachna

Watercolor-Heron-Three
What a great day for a visit!  We're showing the newest Poppystamps release and celebrating with a Blog Blitz!    There are 16 new dies to show that we think you're going to love!  Not familiar with our Blog Blitz?  Well .. it's a special time we set aside to show the new products.. and the best part?  You'll find a prize on every post during the blitz! 
Watercolor-Heron-One
I made an Asian inspired card today featuring two of the new dies - the Graceful Heron and the Stitched Rectangle Frames set.   I was going for an Asian look on my card using gold accents. 
Watercolor-Heron-Two
I started with a watercolor background in red, orange and yellow.  I added Stitchwork Rectangle Frames in gold and white around the outside of the card base.  The largest frame in the set is the perfect size for an A2 Card (4.25 x 5.5").  I didn't cut my dies apart so the spaces in between the dies are perfectly spaced and are nice to use as well.   I cut a whole sheet of frames at a time and kept the extras for another project.  You can see the pretty detail on the Stitchwork Frames here.  It consists of stitches and die cut tear drops that run around the entire frame.  The white in between the two gold frames is the piece left over when you cut the attached dies. 
Watercolor-Heron-Four
I triple cut the heron stacking the dies to make a thick chipboard piece to adhere to the watercolor background.  The detail on the heron is gorgeous and easy to see on the gold foil! 
Watercolor-Heron

And now the part you've been waiting for.. the prize on this post is the Stitchwork Rectangle Frames Die Set.

Let me fill you in on all the details ok?

The blog blitz runs from June 19-29. 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.

Bee-lieve in Yourself
by Robin Tharaldson

PS June 18 Full With

With graduations happening all over the city, I created a card to encourage any graduate! 

PS June 18 CU1 With

For my background I used the Honeycomb Curve die on a panel of white cardstock. I then backed the panel with a honey colored panel.  I cut the Believe Loose Script die three times and stacked together to create a dimensional word. I also sponged a little Fossilized Amber to the bottom for more interest.

PS June 18 CU2 With

My little bees are from a blog hop Poppystamps had with Buttons Galore! The shanks, on the back of the buttons, are easily removed with wire snips. The following video will show you just how this card went together!

 

I hope you enjoyed my card and tutorial, thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!

Fairy Card with Die Cut Inlays
by Olga

Hello crafty friends, I hope you are doing great! 

The card I have created today is all about inlaying die cuts. Everything in it is die cut and inlaid - the background, the frame, the focal image and the sentiment. It is nearly one layer card, but the wings of a fairy add a bit of complexity to the layering. 

Watch the video below for beginning to end guide as well as the explanation of all tricks and techniques!

Lovely Koi
by Jennifer Svare

Koi_1

Hello!  For today's video, I'll show how this simple card was created using watercolor paper, layers, and an earthy mix of distress oxides.  Truly a fast and easy card, this would be great for Father's Day!

Koi_Closeup

The Lovely Koi die-cuts were inlaid into the background for an extra crisp look.  So many dies could be used in place of the Koi, but I love how the koi form a circle as if swimming around each other which adds so much movement and grace to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and be sure to check out the video below for the details of how each step was done.  Have a great day!
