Sailing with the Boys and Poppystamps

Hello Everybody!

I am so glad you could join us today for this month’s brand new challenge over at Poppystamps! Every month, Poppystamps hosts an amazing challenge that gives you an opportunity to win some fabulous new blog candy, all from Poppystamps!  Throughout the month of June, our theme is “For the Boys,” and we cannot wait to see how you will be inspired! You can find all the details, and link up your “For the Boys” card over at the Poppystamps blog right here: http://poppystamps.typepad.com

Today, I am sharing a colorful, interactive card, perfect for an adventurous little boy in your life! This is a slider card, and if you haven’t had an opportunity to make one yet, Memory Box has an amazing line of Slider Grooves to get you started! I used the  Straight Slider Grooves to make this little ship sail across the Seven Seas!

The Tall Ship moves back and forth across the card, but also tips back and forth as it bounces on the waves! Colorful Bubble Fish swim off the starboard side, on their way to an adventure!

You can find more great ideas and inspiration, and link up you “For the Boys” project over at the Poppystamps Blog! We can’t wait to see how you will be inspired!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Poppystamps March Challenge: Clean and Simple

Hello Everyone!

It’s time for a brand new challenge over at Poppystamps this month, Clean and Simple! You can get all the details and link up your CAS sensation over at the Poppystamps blog right here: http://poppystamps.typepad.com/

A Clean and Simple, or “CAS” card is so versatile, it can include a lot of elements. It can be one layer, one color, a lot of white space, minimum number of dies, one focal point, one stamped sentiment, or no stamped sentiments! It ALL fits and it ALL looks beautiful! It also can be CAS and BOLD too! Show us YOUR idea of a Clean and Simple card and your project could be randomly selected to win a brand new prize from Poppystamps!

I used two dies from our latest release, Elegant Koi and Woven Circle Ring to create this CAS style card. Originally I was just going to use the cut outline of the fish, but I really liked the way the two-toned fins looked against the intricate woven background. Tiny paper piecing can look very clean, but it’s not always so simple! With a little delicate work and a pair of tweezers, you can create a design that looks beautifully clean and deceptively simple too!

Thanks so much for joining us today!
