Patriotic Trees-Poppystamps

A Fourth Of July Themed Card for you today. I was trying to think ahead on this one. I cut three different colors and then placed the pieces in to create my pattern.I used washi tape to hold my little pieces. (this was a bit difficult and tedious, but the result is worth it!) You could easily change it up for any season you wish, just change the paper choices. My sentiment is a sticker I had in my stash.

Welcome Home Marine! Poppystamps

Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! Lezlye,  here today with another version of a Military Welcome home Card for my son! I leave tomorrow for San Diego to see him graduate! Then he spends 10 glorious days with us before heading back for infantry training. I used Vincent House, Puffy clouds and the blank Banner pieces from happy Birthday Banner flags. I utilized rub on letters from my paper crafting stash.

I used cardstock for each of my layered house pieces. I hand drew the banner strings. The landscape dies were used for the hills. I used a total of 4 different die sets for this card.

Here is my Card, the three element I used are Twine, Yellow and a flower.

The Background was done by adding ink to an embossing folder and then running the card base through. Colored and translucent vellum were torn for a more feminine look.The Pippystamps Die I used for the flower is the Marcelle Flower. I also used the hello word die.
I decided to add the yellow scalloped ribbon for a more finished look!

Beautiful Day Popppystamps Stamp release

Welcome to the Poppystamps Mini Blog Blitz for a new stamps! I chose the Ornamental Butterflies Set and created this beautiful geometric card.
I used a technique called second generation stamping on the butterflies to give the effect of different shades of the same color. Then stamped the scrolls in the darker color. The red butterflie was stamped using a rock n roll technique.
The sentiment beautiful day was stamped. Then Glossy accents, wink of stella, trails and bling were added.

Welcome to the Poppystamps blog! Today is my Mother's 78th Birthday! SO I made her this card using Poppystamps Dies and a memory box stencil.
It's so much fun to use a stencil and white ink on a dark cardstock, very eye popping and creating your own back ground! I layered blue and whit sentiments for a shadowed effect.
All the balloons were cut out and layered with foam tape for dimension with foam squares. Strings were glued behind each balloon. A different idea would be to tie the strings on each balloon end. I  trimmed the tops of the balloons that were hanging over the card edge.
Have a great Day!
