We are happy to bring you this week’s Featured Company: Poppy Stamps.

Poppy Stamps is a line of dies and rubber stamps from the creators of Memory Box. When Memory Box owners Monica and Dave Brethauer’s children, Emma and Cooper got more involved in the family business, Poppy was created as an opportunity to teach teach them the business from the ground up. Dave created the images and designs with the kids, and made them responsible for filling orders, invoicing, and shipping – a true family business. The company has grown over the years and now has employees who handle day to day operations. Poppystamps offers a large selection of intricate dies and backgrounds with the same quality you have come to expect from Memory Box with new releases several times a year. The newest introduction to the product offering is clear stamps with companion dies.

Poppy Stamps Designer – Jeane Jachna

Today we welcome Jeane Jachna. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Jeane’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:

JeaneJachnaProfilePic-250W-05272015Hi! I’m Jeanne Jachna. I’m a married, stay at home mom of two young adults, and one very active Akita puppy. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago.  I like to read, garden, and cook, but I have been completely captivated by paper crafting. I can’t resist a new set of stamps, bling, big bows and colorful paper. I love to layer on lots of die cuts and mix different patterned papers together. My time crafting is a sweet escape and a fun way to express myself.

Running Behind

A watercolor background created by smooshing Peerless watercolors.  Images stamped in Memento ink and colored with Copic Markers. Images are die cut with Poppystamps  companion dies and adhered with adhesive foam tape.

Happy Camper

I stamped the tent in Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers. Next I covered the tent image with masking fluid. I die cut a border and used it as a mask to create the grass  (bottom half) with distress ink. When the ink was set I  stamped the tree image, colored it with Copic Markers, and again applied masking fluid following manufacturer directions. I die cut a cloud border and used it as a mask to create the sky with distress ink. When the ink was set I removed the masking fluid, and added more Copic color to the tent and tree. When the The fox and campfire were stamped and colored with Copic Markers and die cut with the companion die set, and adhered with adhesive foam tape. The tree was fussy cut and adhered flat to the project.
