I started this one with the idea of a branch - then maybe birds, pretty leaves, bees or something. As I was browsing my stash with branches, I saw this retired set by Stampin' Up and realized that I had never used it!
I thought about sponging an ombre background but quickly realized I had ombre Stampin' Up paper (also retired!) so I didn't have to get inky. Then finally for the stripe, I found more retired Stampin' Up paper! I have new things I haven't even used but when all out on the retired products for this card!

I'm on the Poppystamps blog today with this amazing card using the Poppystamps Floral Vase Pop Up Easel.
Here's how it looks as a card.
And here's how it becomes an "easel" for display.
Isn't that just amazing?! And the dies make it easy. Check out the Poppystamps blog for pictures of each step and many more details.
I made this specifically for a friend and I wanted a fresh and cheerful look. So I created a bold black and white vase using cardstock stripes and I picked bright colors for the flowers. But this set can be used in so many ways. Check out the samples on the Poppystamps store. They do amazing things with shading and with curling each petal for dimension.

I'm on the Poppystamps blog today with the sweet Whittle Giant Panda along with a variety of brand new Valentines products!
I used the new Heartfelt Pinpoint Frame and layered two coral pink colors from the Memory Box Berry red pad (with the third coordinating color on the heart). Then the older Double Diamond Lattice Plate works perfectly to showcase the hearts and the stitched accents. The panda was accented with the new Vintage Scalloped Heart which includes the ray pattern which really puts the focus on him.
There are many more pictures and details on the Poppystamps blog.
