Merry Tags Card
by Robin Tharaldson

Sept22 Merry Full With

 

My project for today is featuring more products from Poppystamps 2018 Holiday release! If you haven't checked out the new dies and stamps just click HERE! For my tags I used the stencil that comes with Pinpoint Snowflake Sidekick Frame die set! What a great addition and so many uses!! My tags are framed using the smallest die from Stitchwork Rectangle Frames die set.

I have once again created a card that uses an A-10 (business) format; just a different look and still uses a first class stamp! As long as it isn't too heavy or exceeds 1/4" thick, lol! This size lets you be really creative with composition and design!

To finish my card I used Liquid Pearls to create the look of falling snow; I would much rather have just flicked some white paint, but we are still in the middle of a remodel and I can't find my white paint...along with a few other crafting necessities!

The following video will show you how this card goes together! 


Thanks for stopping by!

Sending Joy
by Nancy Penir

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!

This set includes a card panel die AND a coordinating stencil. I thought it would be fun to come up with a few different ways to use the two together.

You could use white pigment ink over color cardstock, or try out Distress Resist Spray and Distress Oxide Inks, or you could try foiling the snowflakes for a totally different look! I walk you through all three techniques in this video:

by Marybeth Lopez

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!

Holiday Release Blog Blitz Day Two
by Jennifer Svare

BoxCard3

Happy Holiday Blog Blitz!  It's so much fun seeing the new dies coming out for this year's holiday paper crafting.  Today I made a few idea projects, but mainly the box card is what I'll be sharing in the tutorial video and all techniques can be used on cards and tags, too!  

Box cards close flat for mailing, but yet offer so much dimension when sitting on display.  No dies required for this box card base - super simple and I'll show you how in the video below.

BoxCard4

The snowflakes were created using a snowflake stencil and texture paste.

BoxCard5

Gold thread was glued and looped around to create a fun ornament line.

BoxCard2

The Whittle Moose is fabulous, and a wreath was added around his neck with Nuvo drops.

BoxCard1

The Stitched Ornament Set is incredible!  I love the embossing the die provides as it cuts.  Absolutely gorgeous and so many color combinations could be made! (Make sure to leave a comment on this post for your chance to win the Stitched Ornament Set!

Here are a couple more ideas using the same colors and stenciling technique as the box card:

I love the Memory Box stencils.  So easy to use, and the patterns are great!

Make sure to check out the video below, and don't forget to leave a comment on this post for your chance to win the Stitched Ornament Set!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Happy Holiday crafting!

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!

Blog Blitz: Summer Release!
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0062

Hi Everybody! We're celebrating a Blog Blitz here at Poppystamps. And if you love the die I'm showcasing, LEAVE A COMMENT! That's all you have to do, and you might win this darling Delicate Branch Collage die. 

DSC_0054

Couldn't resist making it into a  shaker. Like to make one similar? Here's a rundown of my how-to's.

DSC_0049

First I stenciled a card base with MB's Texture Dot Grid. I'm all about layers. And depth. and pattern. The more the merrier!

As you can see, I stenciled 3 shades of ink onto my card, not worrying about anything in the center, that part will be covered.

DSC_0052

I inked up a white linen look cardstock in blue and purple, before cutting out with my die. 

Also cut it again, so I could use just the branches. Notice I used my die with the branches on top. I knew I was going to add a sentiment on the bottom, so I wanted to keep the bottom clean.

DSC_0066

Friend Folksy Scrip is one of the new dies being released too. Stay tuned for one of the other designers featuring it as her giveaway. 

DSC_0063

I cut my scrip die twice, once from navy blue cardstock, then from white. I love doubling up my dies, for added depth. Did I mention I LOVE layering? Couldn't resist adding a bit of Wink of Stella to my word die.

DSC_0061

If you'd like a chance to win the Delicate Branch Collage die, remember to leave a comment.

Someone's gonna win, hope it's you!

Poppystamps Challenge: For the Boys
by Robin Tharaldson

PS June Challenge Full With

Here's my inspiration, for Poppystamps "For the Boys" Challenge, using a more masculine palette and a CAS design! I created my background using Memory Box Texture Dots stencil, Distress Oxide ink and a die from the Postage Rectangle Layers die set!

PS June Challenge CU1 With

For my sentiment I cut three "hello", from the Big Halo Hello die set, using a chocolate colored cardstock and adhered together for more dimension. My "halo" was cut from vellum which I like to use when you need to soften the background but not block it completely!

PS June Challenge CU2 With

I hope you play along with us! There are two ways for you to win, all the details can be found here!

Thanks for stopping by...

Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0005

Greeting Poppy Peeps! I have a fun card to show you today, using Poppy's Swirly Loop.

DSC_0008

Birthdays seem to sneak up on me, and I love having a stash ready just in case. This fun little die is a handy swirl that could be a sun, a wreath or just a contemporary image as I've used it.

DSC_0001

One of my favorite background techniques is to create a stencil from vellum, with my die, and sponge ink it onto my main surface. It gives a subtle 'just enough' texture.

DSC_0011

The word sentiment was cut twice from glitter paper.

DSC_0012

Hope this gave you incentive to increase the uses for your dies, and of course to increase on hand birthday cards!

Hope your week is super crafty!

Easter Bunny Egg
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0031

Hi everyone! I have a trio of Easter cards today. 

DSC_0035

Setting up an assembly line, and doing more than one card is easy breezy, when all your elements are laid out and ready.

Do your die cuts first. For my trio, I used pastel pink, blue and lavender.

DSC_0027

DSC_0025

With Memory Box's Floral Mask stencil taped in place, I then hand cut a traced image from Poppy's new Easter Bunny Egg from vellum. To keep it in place, I use a light spray of 3M Spray Mount, and press it down where I want it. It comes off easily when I'm done stenciling. The A2 sized card is then slid under the stencil. I wanted a lime colored bg, so I picked Twisted Citron ink to sponge around the edge of the egg.

DSC_0030

When the stencil and vellum egg are removed, the card is left with a window for my bunny and Easter grass.

DSC_0028

I really love going over the top for holiday cards, so sometimes there's no stopping me! Ribbon bow, a few sequins, and paper flowers, not to mention the Easter grass finish my Happy Easter card!

Oh and that sweet little tag? Pinpoint Main Tag, stamped with Poppy's Sending Love (For You) & a bud from Peony Stems and Blossoms, which I copic colored.

DSC_0029

Oh yes, one more decoration... the Berry Sprig die from Poppy!

Hope this gave you some inspiration for a much anticipated and awaited Spring! Happy crafting!
