Sending Joy
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0055

Greetings Poppy Fans! If you love the holidays, and all the traditions that make them special, then creating holiday cards is right up there at the top of your 'to do' list. My card today is a combo of some of the newest stamps and dies and hopefully will inspire you to get cookin' on your holiday card making.

Holly Vine Sidekick Frame and Stencil lets you as artist, bring your special color touches to your cards.

After taping the stencil over the leaves, I simply added a bit of sponged ink on each holly leaf. Don't you love the way the veins of the leaves stand out after sponging on the ink? The added texture of color just makes them pop!

Poppy's Clear Stamps I used have matching dies, and note I cut 2 of the smaller poinsettia image. Here's why:

DSC_0054

Once I finished copic coloring my poinsettia, I fussy cut the center petals of one, and adhered it to the center of the first whole image with a bit of foam tape. The very center has some Stickles added.

DSC_0046

Plenty of room on the frame image to add my sentiment. First the word 'Joy' with embossing powder, then the rest stamped,

(note: the embossing powder I used is Ranger's Liquid Platinum), and JOY filled in with my copics.

Hope you're inspired to play with a few of Poppy's new holiday collection! And be sure to come back every day for more inspiration! Happy crafting!

Holiday Blog Blitz! Trio of Joy
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0008

Hello! And welcome back to Poppy's holiday release Blog Blitz. Nancy here, and I'm featuring a new die called, 'Mountain Hills Plate'. And if you're looking for a holiday die that does it all, and delivers easy breezy, this one's a must have!

DSC_0020

The die measures an A2 size card, and cuts in 3 sections plus a frame. I chose to do my winter scene in shimmery shades of cardstock.

DSC_0016

Perfectly easy to do 3 cards, with all the sections lined up with the 3 colors of cardstock.

DSC_0021

Here's a tip for doing the 'joy' sentiment. I cut out the word from poppy's new Joy die, & ombred the die cut before stamping it with it's coordinated stamp from Tidings of Joy. I used my Misti to line up the word with the stamp, and simply inserted each

die cut before stamping. Once you do the first one, the others line up perfectly and easily.

DSC_0011

A few snowflakes and a sprinkling of sequins, and my trio of Joy is done! Already planning to do more in other colors, maybe with glitter paper? 

DSC_0006

Want to win this fabulous Mountain Hills Plate die? Just leave a comment. Winners will be announced on the 6th. Hope you win! And don't forget to comment each day of the blitz!

Day Four of the Poppystamps Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_5265

Hello! Welcome to the 4th day of the Blog Blitz! We are showcasing some of Poppystamps brand new Products and oh boy .... I am loving them all!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post if you would like a chance to win this absolutely amazing  Holly Vine Sidekick Frame and Stencil Set from Poppystamps !

IMG_5232

Dave ( the owner) has a great video up on the store website if you would like to watch how he made a card using the same set but with ink blending.

I used a water-pen and Zig Brush Pens to color my card.

Tape the main panel , then tape down the stencil. I used frog tape because I like how easily  it comes off.

IMG_5234

Here is a photo of some of the process. After I took off the stencil I watercolored the branches . I cut two lavers of this panel , layered them for a bit of depth. The watercolor paper is thick so two was just enough.

IMG_5235

I watercolored the cabin then added the glittered roof. I cut a piece of fun foam , colored the door and window then glued together and on the main panel. I added Glossy Accents to the windows to look like glass.

IMG_5247

Can you see the stencil above.... it comes with the die!

Sending Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0040

Hi! Nancy here, and I have a card full of sparkle today!

DSC_0049

My card uses a few of Poppy's fabulous dies, and some sponge inking too. I'll show you how I created it.

DSC_0028

Once I have a basic card idea, I get all my diecuts ready. For the Blooming Rose, I inked a scrap of cardstock with Distress Ink  colors before cutting it out.

DSC_0030

I did the same with my tag.

DSC_0035

For the background, I cut the 2 largest frames from the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame set.

DSC_0041

This photo shows the sparkle when the light hits the card. Sentiment comes from Magic and Sparkle Clear Stamp set, and the sparkle is embossed with Stampendous Winter Wonderland. To help it stand out a bit, I used a colored pencil to hi-light the letters.

Hope you're inspired to give your card a bit of sparkle and shine. There are so many wonderful products out there.

Sprays, dry glitter, Stickles and Nuvo drops. Take your pick, and add some shiny goodness!

Summer Wishes
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5473-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so glad you could join us here on the Poppystamps blog today! Today I am sharing two versions of a sweet Summer card that features three different techniques. Some of you may be "old pros" at this, but for others, these simple techniques might be something you have always wanted to try, but never quite had the time. These hot, humid summer days are the perfect time to add a new spin to your stamping!

IMG_5471-wm

I used the pretty Peony Stems and Blossom clear polymer stamps to create the same card design using two different easy breezy techniques. The first card was colored with copic markers, and the second card was painted with pearlescent watercolors available at most craft stores. 

IMG_5460-wm

Each card began the same way. After cutting out a card base panel, I then cut the Best Wishes Folksy Script in pretty shiny silver foil, and arranged the stamps and the sentiment in the pattern I was going to stamp on my paper. I thought I would add a lot more leaves and vines that would sort of "tumble" down the page, but I decided that pretty peony made a beautiful focal point and kept the design simple.

IMG_5463-wm

I stamped the flowers in silver ink, one image at a time, then covered the image with silver embossing powder, shook off the excess powder, then heated the image until the silver powder turned into a firm and shiny outline. Both cards were created the same way.

IMG_5465-wm

Once the image was completely dry, I colored the flowers with a few copic markers. You don't need a lot of markers to create pretty images with a little bit of shading. Whatever you try will look bright and beautiful!

IMG_5467-wm

Once my flowers were colored with the copics, I glued the card to the folded base, added the Best Wishes Folksy Script, and finished it off with a few sequins. I then painted my second card with watercolor paints, let them dry, and finished the card in the same way. Two different cards, with two very different looks!

IMG_5469-wm

You may be new to embossing, copics, or watercolors, but Poppystamps images are all so adorable and sharp that it's easy to experiment, even for beginners! Give it a try and show us what you create!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Sweet Wishes Friend
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0109

Hi! Nancy here, and today I'm sharing a card and a technique using your dies to create a stencil.

DSC_0105

It's aways a plus to get extra mileage from your dies, here's how I did just that.

DSC_0083

Poppy's new die, Winged Bird Collage is perfect for this technique. I die cut the bird image from a scrap of vellum, and inked it with Ranger's Distress Oxide Inks, on a piece of watercolor cardstock.

DSC_0087

I added some Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray, which really brings out the intensity of the Distress Oxide Inks.

DSC_0110

Here's a closeup of the watercolored panel that's been inked and Shimmer sprayed.

Hope you enjoyed this post today, and hope you give this technique a try. It's always fun to try new things!

Hope your day is extra crafty!

Shimmery Shaker
by Marybeth Lopez

 

Fullsizeoutput_1625

Hello again! Marybeth here a with a shimmery shaker card using the new Poppystamps : Delicate Branch Collage along with Sending Scribbles Clear Stamp .

IMG_4814

Below I have a few step by step pictures.

IMG_4802

I covered up the branches using the negative of the die then lightly shaded the frame with a brush for a smoother look over the watercolor paper.

IMG_4804

I watercolored the branches with a water pen and Zig pens, careful not to let the water run onto the sides of the frame.

IMG_4806

Before taping fun foam to the back I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the branches . Make sure your fun foam is at the very edge of the opening so the sequins don't fall to the bottom, where you won't see them. I filled the back up with sequins, placed my stamped back panel to the card then placed to my card base.

IMG_4810

 Not the prettiest picture above but you get the idea. The backside doesn't have to be perfect in fact I tape and cut the fun foam as needed. For me the Fun Foam seems to lay nicer than the foam tape. Your choice either one works.

IMG_4820

 Watermark copy

I loaded this one up with lots of sequins , hope you like it!

Thank you for the visit.

Watercolored Plumed Peacock
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_4780

Hi there! Marybeth here today with this simple jeweled :Plumed Peacock from Poppystamps .  I had no idea how much I would end up loving this die! 

IMG_4759

 I stamped some ink on a piece of acetate, spritzed with water then placed my watercolor cardstock on top and pressed down. Its called smooching.

IMG_4775

I die cut the Peacock twice, once for the top panel and one for my outline inlay. I took out all the small cut pieces so that I could just add some bling. You could also add sequins , beads etc. I stamped my sentiment with one of my favorite stamps sets from Poppystamps called: Sending Scribbles.

 Thank you for the visit. I hope you are enjoying your summer.
