A Little Christmas In July
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_2a8d

Hello , Marybeth here today with a Little Christmas In July . I don't think I ever had a chance to use this gorgeous Poinsettia Delight set from Poppystamps until now, boy do I love it.

I also used Poppystamps clear stamp set called Christmastime.

Using these clear    jewel beads I decided to adhere them to the card upside down.... for some reason they were way more shinny... I think it only works with clear jewels .

I was just going to post this for fun so I didn't get any how to photos.  When I realized all my stamps and dies are from Poppystamps I decided to post here on the blog to share.

I did get a photo of the products I used .  I used all white paper for my blooms... all the color came from ink blending with these amazing brushes ( if you don't have any, you can also use make-up brushes)

I added a bit of shimmer to the finished bloom and some yellow drops to the center. At first I added gold drops to the center and they all ran together , I made the decision to take off the gold drops( while still wet) with thin paper and it worked!!!! I then added Nuvo  yellow drops. Got lucky there :)

I hope this card will inspire you to make a few Christmas cards early when things aren't so hectic the closer we get to Christmas ( that would be me)

 

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for all the sweet comments on my past post. Hugs to you all.

SQUIRREL!
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Friends!

With all this sticky, hot weather we've been having lately, it's hard to imagine the kiddos headed off to school in less than a month! Soon we'll be watching out the windows as they head off to catch the bus. Yes, my friends, Autumn is right around the corner!

IMG_6191-wm

I created a fresh and fun CAS card with a few new friends and an old favorite. These sweet little Whittle Squirrels sit at the Grand Madison Window, surrounded by Stitched Oak Trio Leaves and a Whittle Maple Leaf. It's as easy breezy to make as the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies floating by!

Challenge Reminder, Animal Kingdom
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1786

Hi there , I made this card for the:  Animal Kingdom Poppystamps Challenge. The birds just seemed to go best with the light and airy poppies .  I used Poppystamps Whittle birds ( so sweet ) and Garden Poppy Stitched Frame. This was simple and easy to create and sometimes simple is best , lets say for sympathy or thinking of you cards.

IMG_1777

I taped the die onto the panel then glued the paned to a pretty blue panel that then went on top of my white card base.  I was going to add a sentiment  but then thought this could go into a notecard set and best to leave blank until the person knows what the occasion will be. I think it could be used for lots of occasions.

Birthday Wishes
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0172

Hi! Nancy here, and I have some summery birthday card inspiration for you, using the Spring Pots Shelves die.

DSC_0168

I die cut the image 3 times, as I knew I wanted to give it a 'shadow' and a bit of dimension. 

DSC_0166

For the background I stamped Flower Garden on watercolor paper using several colors of yellow, then spritzing with water. The top layer (white) is colored with copies.

DSC_0169_wm

Once my card was assembled I added Nuvo Drops in white, for a bit of summer magic!

Here's a closeup look showing the 'shadow' of colored card stock.

Hope your summer is full of crafty goodness!

Distress Greenhouse Potted Plants
by Jeanne Jachna

Blessing-Two

Hi friends!  It's Jeanne here today!  I thought I'd break out the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil Set.  I know you've seen some samples from the rest of the team.. now it's my turn!  :P  I'm always amazed how changing the colors up can give such a different look to a design. 

Blessing-One

I love brights and a rainbow of color on everything I make !  
Blessed-Five
I started by die cutting the frame and then using the stencil to ink the potted plants with distress ink.  I used a Yoseng make up brush to apply the ink (from Amazon).  Using brushes means you don't have to apply pressure so no hard lines or worry about tearing your die cuts. 
Blessing-Three
I layered the die over a panel that I colored with distress ink in pastel shades of orange, yellow and pink.  The soft background makes the colored die cuts pop.  The sentiment is from the Springtime Greetings Clear Stamp Set and is stamped directly on the soft pastel panel. 
Blessing-Four
The small and delicate leaves and birds were cut from scraps that I inked with distress ink.   I had lots of fun arranging them, tucking the leaves inside the pots and placing the birds on the branches. 
Blessing

Try experimenting with different color schemes.. how about pots in blue and teal?  You'll have fun creating with this amazing set!
