Happy Birthday Mum..Poppystamps

Birthday mumWelcome to Poppystamps Blog! Lezlye, here from Sunny Northern California with some Floral Mum inspiration for you. I also show you how I made my own background paper using one of Memory Box C. Designer Stencils.

To make my background paper I started with a Memory Box Stencil and some Ranger Distress ink. I love this ink because it blends so well. Using a foam tip applicator to apply different levels of the same color for a great blended effect!

I then blended around the edge of the cardstock.

MFTSTAMPS Sketch Challenge #220

Game On!
MFTSTAMPS Sketch Challenge


I finally was able to play and participate in the MFTSTAMPS Sketch Challenge this week! So much fun, I need to create more often! I have just been working so much and been tired so creating has been pushed to the side. I am hoping to change that here real soon.



I used my MFTS Dienamics Game controller by LLD, and the coordinating sentiment stamps. I also used pieces of my blue prints 1 and 2. The stitched circles are MFTSTAMPS too!
All those tiny colored dots cut from paper hard to keep control on my work desk, I just cut a bunch of colors and applied them randomly.

I added some enamel dots for color and to play with the sketch true to originality! I hope you enjoyed my card and that you consider playing along with MFTSTAMPS.com!


Have a Fabulous Day!

Easter 's Shakin' Poppystamps





 Poppystamps Easter Card- shaker


Poppy easter shakerFor my Card I created a shaker scene, I loved adding all the little elements and details. First I prepared my shaker element using the Open Studio Circle Dies. I cut a layer of cardstock, two layers of fun foam, using the same die.
IMG_3380Using the same circumference circle and the open studio circle die cut your acetate or clear plastic piece. Also die cut your eggs, ladder, buckets and pails out of desired colors. I chose to use a sanding block on my ladder that I cut out of white core paper, it gives the look of wood.

Custom 70th Birthday Card

Happy 70th Birthday!


I had a lot of fun on Saturday night creating this One of a kind custom Birthday Card! I love to do that! It took my 5 hours from concept, design to coloring and assembly. Tieing the String on the balloons with my long fingernails proved to be troublesome but worth the added effort. I added touches of wink of stella on her top and glossy accents to lips, eyes and balloons.









Supplies:
MFTSTAMPS Dies - Balloons., Happy Birthday script
Simon Says Stamp Balloon DIes
Cricut Explore and Design Space Scissors
Saturadted Canary Jane Girl
Various Copic Markers to color
Car base is a Accucut Die 5 x7


Have a great Day!
