Poppystamps and Cardmaker Magazine Blog Hop


Note: This is my second post for today. If you are looking for my Festive Friday post scroll down :)






Hello my friends!

I have some exciting news! I am one of the new design team members for Poppystamps! You all know how much I love dies, so this is a thrill for me!



Today we are hopping along with Cardmaker magazine! If you are following the hop you will have arrived  from Mae's blog hereIf you'd like to start from the beginning you can find a list of all the designers here

For my card I used two stunning dies from Poppystamps, the Big Bubble Background and Mod Snowflake Background. Both of these stamps work together. It's so fun because you can fill in the circles with different colored card stocks and have the snowflakes as an overlay!


I first die cut the background from the Mod Snowflake Border, then cut out three more of them in the colors you see on my card. I then inserted all the different colors in the cut out sections from the first one I cut. Next I cut out the Mod Snowflake background and adhered this over the top. Next I added the stitched border piece across the card and the die cut sentiment.


Poppy Stamps will be hosting a giveaway of a die set to one winner on their blogPrizes shown below are 1084 Leaf Silhouette, and 1031 Thank You Background dies. To be eligible to win these beautiful dies, just leave comments on the blogs along the way in the hop. One winner will be chosen and posted  on the Poppy blog on 9-29!

 

Your next stop on the hop will be Yvonne.

I hope you enjoy seeing all the beautiful cards created with Poppystamps dies! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

Kay :)

  65. Kay, of course Poppystamps wants you, because you are the Queen of Dies (and patterned papers, and stamps...you have a vast reign over many aspects of this card-making land!). Truth be told: I only 'just' discovered Poppy (hanging head, red-faced) alongside my 'other' discovery of the 'local distributor in the city where my family lives (and my "home" city) *hanging head transforms to a mega-smile and happy dance* What that means: I can see, touch and BUY Poppy dies!! Woo hoooo...and given that we're heading north on Friday, guess where I'll be going...again! I can't tell you how stoked I am to have a 'brick and mortar' place to shop (downside = four hours away, but perhaps that's a plus considering how carried away I can be). Anyway: super congrats on joining the Poppy team, and your debut card...you can well predict my response: in awe and in love! It's just that simple! Your creativity continues to shine ever so brightly! Mega hugs, my friend...mega! Oh yes, the give-away opportunity = awesome. Maple leaf...near and dear to my Canadian heart!
