The new team members are here in place and ready to provide you with fresh new idea's. Thank you to everyone for All your comments since the very start. Ok on to my creation process.
I water-colored my die cut Jumping Deer trio with distress inks and painted extra color and then spritzed with water.

For the shaker window I used the Open Hillside, Sloping Hillside and Snowscape. I cut them all out of white for my card.They layer smallest to largest.

I re-detirmine where I want my cuts to go and lay them out and take a photo to refer back to for final card assembly. Acetate wind is placed over opening.
I use fun foam when I have a large piece to cover to pop up the top piece to give room for the sequins or your choice of shaker material.

Happy Thoughts Poppystamps

Hello Poppystamps fans. Lezlye , here today with a card using the new stitched Oka Trio Die and and older sentiment die Sending and Sending Scribbles stamp set.

I cut a strip of green cardstock using the border die. This is a great way to use up scraps of yardstick and add a decorative element to your designs.


 Die cutting the sentiment in black makes for a really bold striking sentiment. I plan to make a whole collection of these cards with all of my scraps.I jus want to say what a pleasure it has been to have been on this team since the beginning. I have truly enjoyed designing with these fabulous dies. I thank  The Memory Box, Poppystamps and Birch Press Design Companies, my fellow design team members. I will still be creating, but mostly for fun for a while. I will post here.  I will have at least one more post for Poppystamps.

Birthday Shaker-Lori Whitlock

Welcome Lori Whitlock Fans!  Today I have fun a Birthday Shaker Card to share!

I cut the file out of white cardstock and then did a bit of "card surgery" cutting it in half.  I did this so that I could add acetate and foam squares to the back to form a well to hold the sequins and confetti.

Simply add foam and sequins, and finish it off with the panel you cut from the file.  I then glued it to the card base.  My sentiment came from another card file of Lori's, the links are below.

Peony Get well-Poppystamps New Stamps and Dies

Welcome to Poppystamps Blog, Lezlye here today showcasing a NEW stamp set and coordinating dies.
I stamped the Peony flower on Neenah solar white yardstick and cut out with the perfectly precision die.  I chose a little deeper topic markers pictured below.

I drew up a sketch and  based my card off of it. I find this helps get the card design started if you ar having a mental mojo block...
I stamped with versa mark ink on my deep red yardstick circle with the dot texture from the set.
This Nuevo Glimmer paste is neat, it is thick and acts as a colored embossed look. Just look at that yummy texture and color.
I circle cut a apiece of vellum, stamped the sentiment on a flag banner. I used some twine for texture. Final step to add some sparkle, wink of Stella and star sequins.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did with this Fabulous new set perfect for coloring!

Just Bling It_ Poppystamps Challenge

Welcome to the Poppystamps Challenge!  I am so happy you've stopped by and I sure hope you'll join us!  On the first of the month we announce a new Poppystamps Challenge  with a central theme.  The design team will provide samples for inspiration and you can play along through the end of the month for your chance to win.
For my card I chose one of my favorite dies the Daisy Die. I cut it out of white yardstick, glued several layers together and added a white Blog glitter paper on top. I did the same with the gold centers.

I usually make my floral designs have the elements but chose to spotlight two in the oval die.

The leaves were watercolored. I handcuff my banner for the die cut hello in glitter paper.I love layering panels as I did here for a clean simplified look.

Close up of the flowers and centers along with the added sequins.

The side view shows how it looks mounted with the foam.
Hope you have a great Holiday Weekend! Leave me a comment and I will pick a random commenter to send a prize to!
Now it's your turn!  Need a little more motivation? How about a prize?  The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!
You have until 12 am US EST on July 29 to link up your design here!  We'll start a new challenge and announce the winner on August  1.
Thanks for joining us!  We can't wait to see what you make! Poppystamps

Happy Birthday Marine! Poppystamps

Today I am sharing a masculine card that I made for my youngest son. He is a U.S. Marine and today is his 23 Birthday!
Poppy masculine Bday
I used the Circle Layers from Birch Press Design on my base card along with a stitched Oval die for the platform for my Daisies.
I used the green black and a pop of white for a very masculine feel. The  Happy Birthday streamer die I mounted to green yardstick strips.
I added a dimensional military sticker on there for him.
Have a great weekend!
