CardMaker & Poppy Stamps Blog Hop



Welcome to the CardMaker & Poppy Stamps Blog Hop.

I had so much fun playing with these dies. I use a Craftwell Ebosser and the Poppy Stamps dies went through with no problem. I only had to make one pass on the intricate Theo Butterfly die using 110lb card stock.
Woohoo!!!


I die cut the Puffy Cloud Border, then used it as a mask with Versa Magic Aspen Mist ink. I also inked the edges of the butterfly. Tiny white dots are made with irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Wedding White.


The Maple Leaf Border die is perfect for all of your Fall cards and scrap pages. 


The card front was die cut and popped up with foam adhesive. The panel behind that was finished with Metal Gilding Flakes, as was the sentiment (Gorgeous shine!). Tiny twigs are just card stock that have been cut very close to the blade of my Fiskars ProCision cutter...how cute are they?!?

 I just had to make something else with the Leaf Border die:


I die cut the leaves and used the negative as a mask for Ferro Graphite Embossing paste (LOVE) to add dimension to this card. Left over leaves were adhered with foam adhesive.


Don't forget to comment on each stop along the way. There are prizes involved after all.

Puppies x3


Hey, hey, hey.....

I wanted to get in one last post before I am off to treatment week where I will be out of commission for a few days. This Breast Cancer thing can be a real drag.

Playing along at the new Simon Flickr challenge using their color scheme:

oops, can't copy the picture from Flickr (what's up with that?).
so.... the colors are Orange, Black, Green, Gray.

and I am also playing at CASology using the cue word:


I intentionally left off a sentiment on the front of the card, as I can easily make a small tag down the road and add it as needed.


Challenges Entered:
CASology - Three


Let's go Shopping:

Studio Calico: Veneer Circles
My Mind's Eye: Brad, Happy Haunting 6 x 6 pad
