Poppystamps Summer Release Blog Blitz – To a Special Friend

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!

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.

The dark grey cardstock (Lawn Fawn Storm Cloud) I used was a nice compliment to the light pink cardstock (Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers). It’s a nice contrast but much softer looking than black! The following video will show you how to put this card together!

Bee-lieve in Yourself

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

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.

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!

Woven Circle Shaker Card

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!

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!

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!

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out the Poppystamps blog for more inspiration!

 

 

 

Patriotic Card

I have a simple patriotic card to share with you today. I used scraps of cardstock to create my star strip, along with the Big and Little Star Border Layer dies from Poppystamps Spring Release!

 

My sentiment was made using Stitched Main Street Tags and Sending Love Stamp set.

The following video will show you how I made my card!

Be sure to check out Poppystamps Spring release here, lots of new dies and ideas! Thanks for stopping by today!
