Poppy stamps & Birch Press Design Blog Hop



Hi guys!  I'm hopping today with the lovely ladies of Poppystamps, but today there's a twist!    (You're on track if you just popped in from Jinny Newlin's blog!)  Today we're pairing up our wonderful Poppystamps stamps and dies with Birch Press Design dies!  Have you seen the Birch Press Design stackable dies?  They are AMAZING!!!!  

I'm using the Honeybee Layer Set which has 3 layers of hexagon design cover plate dies.  You could do so much with each of the layers, but the real magic happens when you layer all three like this...


wanted to create a clean and simple card, so I used the layers in just white to create lots of texture.  The white design looks so neat over the ombre-colored background!


I didn't want it to get too busy, so I stamped my sentiment on a strip of vellum and then added my die cut butterfly (from Ornamental Butterflies).  To create the butterfly, I actually blended Distress Ink over the die cut and then stamped it with the scroll stamp using just water!  I dabbed with a paper towel and what I got was a delicate lacy pattern.  


The next stop on the hop is the wonderful Lezlye Lauterbach!  And don't forget, one lucky hopper will win a $25 gift certificate!  Hoppers have until 12 am US EST on August 27th to leave a comment for a chance to win.  The winner will be announced on the Poppystamps blog on August 29th.
