Breakfast Card
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi, hope you are doing great!

The card I've made today was inspired by the picture of my breakfast (you can find the original picture in the video below). Don't be surprised it's just the eggs and not something breathtaking, big or "important". I actually find small everyday things like these much more inspiring because this is what life is made from.

I have re-purposed donut dies to make the eggs, circle border die was used to create peas and the dish is made with simple circles. Find a step by step video guide at the end of this post! 

Thank you for visiting today, have a lovely weekend!

Sympathy Card
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1211 2

Hello! Marybeth here today with a feminine sympathy card, using :Poppystamps clear stamps and dies. 

I tried not to make it too busy  but wanted to add more than just the background  . 

IMG_1184

I stamped the background with: Flower Garden and used : Tim Holtz distressed oxide inks. First I stamped lightly with the ink pad then blended the inks so it would not have any harsh lines.

IMG_1185

I kept doing it till I was happy with the results. I am using the MISTI Stamping tool.

The sentiment comes with the background  stamp set: Flower Garden, all linked below.

I die cute the Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame a few times so I would have a few flowers to put around the :Whittle Hearts.

I randomly cut them apart then sanded with a sanding block to smooth the edges, then tucked them around the heart.

Hugs!! It's Your Birthday!
by Robin Tharaldson

May23 HugsFull WITH

Nothing like a BIG hug on your birthday! These large word dies from Poppystamps have taken me by storm!! Hope you aren't getting too bored with me designing with them BUT they are so versatile!

May23 Hugs CU1 WITH

I think this design is gender neutral, but with the grey/brown tones it's more masculine. With a simple switch of palate it could be more feminine or with bright colors suitable for children.

May23 Hugs CU2 WITH

By cutting the Delicate Branch Collage die twice, then turning it around and stacking, I created more of the background element I was needing for this card. I'm sure if you look at your dies you will find a few that would work with this technique.

May23 Hugs CU3 NO

Even though I resisted making a shaker card, this would be a great frame for one!!  My video will show you just how easy this card was to create! And at times we all need something easy and fast!

Thanks for stopping by...

Poppy Hello
by Jeanne Jachna

Red-Poppies-Five

Jeanne here today!  I hope your week is off to a good start!  Today I'm sharing a card I made with the Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame.   The design team has shared different ways to color this die using watercolor, distress inks and markers.  I personally don't color dies too often because I worry about keeping the lines clean and crisp and I dont always stay in the lines.
Red-Poppies-Four
I thought I'd share how I got this clean look without having to worry about having a steady hand.
Red-Poppies
I started by cutting the frames from white card stock.  Next I inked up the flowers with Copic Markers.  I didn't worry about keeping the ink on just the flower, or off the frame.  I used two shades for the orange/red flowers, and three shades for the green stems and leaves.
Red-Poppies-One
Next I cut the dies again from white card stock and snipped off the florals between the lines of the frame.  My first attempt was using a ruler and razor.  It looked very choppy and I was disappointed.  I found using a simple pair of scissors worked even easier and looked cleaner when I was done.
Red-Poppies-Two
And finally I made an ombre blue background from three shades of distress ink (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch).  I used a Yoseng make up brush (from Amazon) to get a line free blending of ink.
Red-Poppies-Seven
Now to assemble all the pieces! 

1.  Attached the distress ink background to the card base. 
2. Attach the COLORED Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame to the distress ink panel.
3. Attach the CUT Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame to the COLORED one.
4.  Attach the COLORED Garden Poppy Stitched Frame.
5.  Attach the CUT Garden Poppy Stitched Frame.
Red-Poppies-Six
I inserted a Brush Hello die cut inside the open frame.  I cut it a second time and attached it over the first to make the die cut thicker to match the heavy outline frames.  The stamped sentiment is from the Fairy Wishes Stamp Set.  The finishing touch is a few gems for some sparkle and shine.

Red-Poppies-Three
I love the bold contrast of the red against the blue and that the coloring was easy.  I hope you give this technique a try.  The layered dies feel thick and expensive, and the coloring is clean and bold.

I started with white card size 6.1/2" square..Into this I have cut an of set oval shape using  Poppystamps "Pointed Oval frames" Second from the largest size.

IMG_3673-crop

This is the right side..you get your oval inner shape and disregard the oval and frame.

IMG_3674-crop

Using the largest size Pointed Oval dies, cut one in pink or your colour choice. I used my Misti for stamping , clear versa mark ink pad and white embossing powder, heat gun.

IMG_3675-crop

This is how it looks after stamping and heat embossing..I have adhered the out frame as shown. 3D sticky foam tape on the reverse on the white square, for dimention.

IMG_3676-crop

White square adhered onto pink card, touch larger than the white..Poppystamps "Luscious Script Wishes" backer cut in white and wishes cut in pink, Deep 3 D sticky foam tape to adhere as shown..I decided to place on an angle! your choice ..

Sending Birthday Wishes
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0020

Hi Poppy fans! I have a bright spring birthday card to show you today, made with Poppy's Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame and Stencil.

These sweet little flowers really shine when the stencil is placed over them and inked. 

DSC_0013

I decided to really go for intense red. And chose Altenew's Heartbeat to ink the poppy images.

DSC_0015

As you can see, I deepened the red hue at the bottom of the poppy, leaving most of the top white, as if the light was shinning from the top.

DSC_0022_wm

The result was an intentional color contrast when placed over an inked green background.

DSC_0021

I ombre stamped my sentiment from Flower Garden stamp set, before gluing down the frame. I also added some hanging vines, pots and inked birds from another new die set, Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil. 

Hope you got some inspiration today. And hope you find some crafty time to create.

Art Deco Peacock
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6141-wm

Hello Friends!

I am so happy that you have joined us here today! I have a project that I am really proud of, this beautiful Plumed Peacock and Deco Victor Square, all done in shiny foil paper. I love the crisp Art Deco look that emerged after I framed the Plumed Peacock inside the Deco Victor Square. Take a look!

IMG_6142-wm

Arranging the Peacock in the frame is really quite easy, but the intricate paper piecing of the peacock and the details in the plumage is not for the faint of heart. Here's a little peek at this work in progress.

IMG_6140-wm

I cut the peacock in multiple shades of foil paper in emerald green, teal, and royal blue, and then went to work fitting together the feathers and eyes with craft tweezers. Then I added the pieces of the frame that I wanted to shine, and finished it all with the Pointed Rectangle Frame. I hadn't realized how sleek and elegant the peacock looked until I saw it finished in the frame in the perfect Art Deco combination!

IMG_6143-wm

Thanks so much for joining us today!
