Birch Press & Poppystamps Blog Hop


Welcome to the Poppystamps & Birch Press Design Blog Hop. You should be arriving from Patty's blog. If not you can start the hop from the beginning here.

For those not familiar with Birch Press Design, it's an online company founded by Memory Box and Poppystamps creator Dave Brethauer. Birch Press sells household and craft items including dies, stamps, paper and more. Birch Press also has a blog now with a design team and they are joining us on this hop. That blog can be found here.




On my card I'm using the Delfina Layers Dies. They come in a set of three dies which you can layer in different ways but you can also buy each layer die separately if you want.



I made a quick background using coral and white papers with two of the layer dies. I die cut Poppystamps Monterey Vine out of water colour paper, sprinkled on some Color Bursts and added a few spritzes of water. Love the soft speckled effect. I also die cut the vine from vellum and placed it behind the coloured piece.



I die cut a couple of birds from some of the left over Color Burst paper and tucked them into the windows and added a white embossed sentiment.

Make sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win one of two $25 gift certificates for Birch Press Design. The more you comment, the more chances to win. You have until October 9th to leave a comment and the winners will be announced on the Poppystamps blog on October 11th.

Also there is a special going on right now, purchase a clear stamp set and get the coordinating dies for 20% off.

Your next stop is Tracy!

Here's a list of all the hop participants in case there's a broken link.
