Birthday Money Envelopes
by Marybeth Lopez

6F9ACB58-0F45-4E81-A072-4BA26C5C114D_1_201_a

Hello! Marybeth here this weekend sharing an easy card to make with Poppystamp's Stitched Envelope craft die. The sentiment is also from Poppystamps: Peony Bouquet stamps set.

 

59FC6223-533A-43D2-B5C1-7476294B79D5_1_201_a

I used white cardstock and then blended Distress Oxide ink . I used heavyweight 110 lb. cardstock. for the envelopes but next time I will use one not so heavy, because it won't be as bulky once the money is tucked in. No need for such heavyweight anyway. I found because of the oxide inks glue didn't adhere as well so I used very thin score tape. If you choose to just used colored paper no worry , you can use glue or tape.

E74DF433-6C80-4E74-91DC-B5106BFD00C9_1_201_a

I folded the money and used a bone folder to help make it flatter. You can fold it, in a way that shows the amount but I had random amounts for the photo so I didn't chose to show the amount.

I am not sure why the photo above is so faded and bright, on my phone and computer it's not. Sorry about that.

This card will most likely go to my grandson, born on Leap year. Since this is a leap year and he is 16, he gets one envelope filled with money for each real birthday. Sometimes he says this will be his 4th birthday :) 

Thank you for the visit today and I hope you have a wonderful week filled with many blessing.

Confetti Heart Plate
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 2.14.20. REVHappy Valentine's Day Everyone! 

Candice here back on the blog showcasing my last Valentine's Day card for 2020. Today's card features the Confetti Heart Plate and the Love Outline die from our January release.

Poppystamps 2.14.1.2

If you're in need of quick last minute Valentine's Day card for someone, you can easily put together this cutie in no time flat.  To get started, die cut the Confetti heart plate from a piece of white cardstock. This die is perfectly sized to 4.25 x 5.5 inches, which the same size of an A2 card.

Next grab a sheet of red and white polk a dot patterned paper and cut it to A2 size. I'm using a piece of red polka dot paper from the Memory Box Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 paper pad. Cut your patterned paper to 4.25 x5.5 inches and adhere it to your card base. Then place the Heart plate die cut piece on top of your patterned paper. Isn't this stunning! Instant decorative background with no ink blending involved. 

Now cut a strip of black cardstock to 1.75 x 4.25 inch strip with your paper trimmer. Then using the newly released Love outline die to cut the sentiment outline from a scrap piece of white cardstock and the sentiment layer with a piece of red cardstock. Next layer the red love sentiment on top of the white outline and secure the two pieces together with your favorite liquid or tape runner adhesive.  

Poppystamps 2.14.1.3

Adhere the two toned love sentiment on top of your back cardstock strip. Pop up your sentiment strip onto your confetti heart plate with some 3M foam tape. 

Viola, your card is done! Wasn't that quick and easy. 

Poppystamps 2.14.1.4

I hope you've enjoyed today's card tutorial. I hope you found inspiration to either case my design or to create your very own card using the same dies from the January Valentine's release. Thanks for joining me today. Until next time...happy crafting!

Love Stitch Circle Frame
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps 2.13.20

Hey there crafty friends, 

Candice here on the blog today sharing with you a shaker card tutorial using the Love Stitch Circle Frame die and the Memory Box Drifting Hearts stencil. 

To get started take a piece of white cardstock measuring 5.7 inches tall x 4.5 inches wide and sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress oxide ink with your ink blending tool.  

Poppystamps 2.13.20.1

Next place the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts on top of your Spun Sugar cardstock panel and sponge the heart images onto your paper using Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Barn Door distress inks. Add each of the colors in order from lightest to darkest making sure to blend each of the colors together to avoid any harsh lines.   

Poppystamps 2.13.20.2

Now take your Double Stitched Rectangle Frame die and die cut a frame and inner panel from your heart stencil cardstock. The Double Stitched Rectangle frame will create the perfect A2 size card front panel. 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.3

Next die cut the Love Stitch Circle Frame once from a scrap piece of red cardstock and then again from a scrap piece of white cardstock. Snip away the love sentiment from the red scalloped circle frame, leaving just the frame behind. Adhere the red scalloped frame onto the white Love Stitch Circle Frame to create a two toned effect. 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.4

Next using a circle die or punch from you stash, cut a 3 inch circle from a piece of clear acetate. Adhere the acetate to the back of the two toned frame using some strong adhesive. I used 1/8th inch score tape.

With some 3M foam tape, cut a thin strip of adhesive foam long enough to go the entire perimeter of your scallop frame. Adhere your foam tape to back of your scalloped circle frame. Remember to double up on the adhesive so that there is enough clearance for your shaker bits to shake. Brush a bit of your embossing buddy on the inside of your adhesive foam to prevent the shaker bits from sticking to the sides. Now add your sequence or shaker bits. I am using Sprinkletz sweetheart embellishments. 

Remove the backing tape from the foam adhesive and add your stenciled card front to the shaker frame. Add your shaker card front panel onto an A2 side folding cardbase and your shaker card is now done! 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.5

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and found inspiration to create your very own shaker card. Thank you for joining me today. Until next time, happy crafting!

Challenge Reminder
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-7

Hi Friends! It is Dana here today with a Challenge Reminder! I hope you get a chance to play along with our challenge this month. You never know, you just might be the lucky winner of the $20.00 gift certificate to the Poppystamps online store. All you have to do is create a project using an animal, along with one of the many products from the Poppystamp line and link it up to the challenge post

IMG_6495

Let's get started with my card, shall we?

SavingPNG-10

I started my card by creating my background. I used the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts. I added Distress Oxide Ink (Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass) to my background and then used the same colors along with the stencil to create a tone on tone effect. 

SavingPNG-8

Next, I used the Love Heart die to die cut three hearts out from my card panel. I then attached my card panel to my stenciled background so the soft colors were showing through behind the hearts to create a soft pretty background. 

SavingPNG-9

I die cut the Whittle Panda from white cardstock and used Copic markers (N2 and RV 10) to color the details. I then attached the adorable little panda inside the hearts. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment onto the bottom of my card panel before attaching everything to my A2 card base. 

SavingPNG-11

I hope you get a chance to play along with our challenge this month!! You have until the 28th to enter... I can't wait to see what you create! And you never know, you just might be the lucky winner.

Love and Sunshine
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6692-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

There are so many things to love about the latest release from Poppystamps, especially these tiny hearts! Every designer is creating beautiful projects that feature rows and rows of tiny hearts, in a wide range of colors. Today I am sharing a few cards I made with alcohol inks and YUPO paper in bright sunshine colors. Take a look!

IMG_6688-wm

I love the look of bright, crisp white paper and the marbled jewel look of alcohol ink on YUPO! I started out by pulling out my box of scrap alcohol ink papers I had left over from other projects. When I saw this scrap of bright sunshine yellows and rich coffee browns, I wanted to give them a try. It's not your traditional red and pink palette you see around Valentine's Day, but I thought it would look fresh and cheerful.

IMG_6671-wm

I cut the Banded Hearts in white, then used the die again to cut all my bright scraps into a pile of tiny colorful hearts.

IMG_6674-wm

Once the Banded Hearts cut was adhered to my card base, I then carefully glued all the tiny hearts in place using glue and craft tweezers.

IMG_6678-wm

Not only does it look unique, but the smooth texture of the YUPO feels so fun!

 

IMG_6680-wm

I finished the card with the Love Outline, cut in crisp white and rich browns.

IMG_6682-wm

I had enough little hearts left over to make a second card, using more blues and purples. For the second card, I used the Grid Heart Frame, which gives my card a different look. Which color palette do you prefer?

IMG_6686-wm

Now I've got TWO cards ready to mail to two very special people!

IMG_6696-wm

I third count, I realized I had enough for one more card! take a look!

IMG_6697-wm

This card has a completely different look to it! Instead of trimming the card base to a tight fit, I left it long, and added a sweet sentiment from the Memory Box Valentine's Fun Clear Stamp Set. I'm going to use this large size card as a letter to my good friend, who truly is the very best!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Rainbow Hearts
by Sue McRae

IMG_0684c

Hello everyone! Sue here with a cheery rainbow card using one of the Valentine's Day dies from the new release.

Not all heart cards have to be for Valentine's Day, try thinking outside the box in using them in your every day crafting.

I'm sure most of you have lots of scrap card stock lying around, I know I do. So today I'm using up the scraps to make my own rainbow background.

IMG_0650c

Pick whatever colours make you happy for creating your background. I went with a rainbow but you could use different shades of one colour. I cut strips 0.25" and 0.5" wide because I wasn't sure what I was going to do at first. I arranged the colours horizontally and then decided I liked them on a diagonal better and I put a couple of wider strips with the narrow ones just to mix it up. I added my strips to a piece of white card stock that I covered with double sided adhesive. Once I filled my panel with all the strips I trimmed off all the ends.

IMG_0659c

I die cut the Samba Heart Border from white card stock and adhered it the panel. I used the same colours from my background to die cut the hearts. I cut small squares from the coloured card stock and taped them to the back of the border die so I could cut several hearts in different colours at the same time. It only took 3 passes to die cut all the hearts I needed.

IMG_0672c

I added the hearts with foam tape for dimension and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Art Deco You Are Wonderful stamp set. 

IMG_0687c

To finish off I added a thin strip of black card stock to the heart panel and some iridescent bubbles.

IMG_0680c

I hope you give this idea a try. It's an easy way to add some fun colour to a card. I have enough strips leftover to make another panel for a future project. Bonus!

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Sending XOXO
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028

Hi and welcome to a Valentine post! I have a card for you that's a shaker, made with Poppy's fabulous dies and features a stencil I made. Let me show you how.

DSC_0013

I wanted a simple background for my Meadowblossom Frame, and decided to make my own using Poppy's Confetti Heart Plate. It's really easy with a few tricks I've learned using different methods. Here's what I like best. Die cut your stencil with a nice sturdy vellum. Spray the back with Pixie light tack reposition adhesive spray (Amazon). and allow it to dry a minute or two. It will keep your stencil from moving during inking.

DSC_0014

I used Distress Oxide Inks, but used different amounts and pressure when applying the ink. I wanted a rather ombre effect.

DSC_0015

I wanted the heart and frame from the Meadowblossom frame, but not all the posies, as I wanted the background to show. I simply snipped all but the bottom corner from the frame and heart. I did this 5 times.

One die was glued down to my heart stenciled background.

DSC_0016 2

To make the perfect sized acetate for my shaker, I used the heart from the middle of the Meadowblossom frame, tracing onto the paper, and cutting a 1/8"  wider than the line. The heart acetate piece is glued to one of the 5 heart frames that will be on the top. The rest are all glued to the 1st piece.

DSC_0024_wm

The finished shaker. I added red Nuvo drops to the flower centers, and the red glitter hearts are outtakes from another valentine I did with Banded Hearts die plate. 

DSC_0026_wm

DSC_0046

Since I had the stencil, I decorated the flap of an envelope.

How are you coming with your valentines? Hope you got a little bit of inspiration today. And hope you picked up a few of the fabulous new dies during the release! Happy Crafting!

Love and Hearts
by Marybeth Lopez

31C9AB2A-648A-406E-9CDE-7578999F3D2E_1_201_a

Hi there, Marybeth here today with a Pink Valentine card. I used Poppystamps Love die , the beautiful memory box 3D embossing folder, ( love this folder and I use it on many envelopes too! I also used some leftover hearts from one of my other cards , using the Banded Heart die and the tiny hearts are from the Heartscape Hill die.

3E1D429C-1B79-44F7-BFB8-4FAE47A07F60_1_201_a

Jumping ahead, this card shows how I added shimmer ink all over the hearts and panel. You might see I stamped the heart on the O and then decided not to add anything to it, I covered it up with another layer of heart.

44D8584B-8DF5-4327-8354-62500539EBEA

I used all white paper for my card, all color comes from ink blending . I used the lighter pink for the large layer and the darker pink for the letters that go on top.

4232BC35-74B7-4B7F-809F-5EE144939A96

76C5537D-81A0-41BB-B520-0075D67983A0

Above is my card base, I wanted it to match the color die cuts, so I ink blended the outer edges only ( center won't show). I then placed the embossed panel on top of this base.

C8481226-4CE6-4DE1-A1E0-85DC5217704C

I added a few drop of my favorite glue to adhere the top layer of the dies to the large outline.  I love these two soft pinks together! Don't you just love the LOVE outline die!!!

5524F0E0-90EF-4F68-B7C0-E8599C13113E_1_201_a

I simply embossed my panel using the 3D folder then added all the beautiful Poppystamps dies .See how the panel looks like colored cardstock! Just ink blended around the edges.

11F94615-1E3C-41D2-A241-ADA450CC687B

I think this will be a St. Valentine card but it could be used for many occasions. The card above this one shows more of how pretty the shimmer is. Thank you for the visit today , I hope you are enjoying a beautiful week .

God bless you .
