Hello Poppystamps friends, Marybeth Lopez here today sharing a card using the new Geometric Deco Plate from Poppystamps.

I used an older panel made with alcohol inks that I saves. Cut the plate twice and layered it over the panel.

With all the tiny details I used Craft Bond spray and it went on in no time.

I know I covered up the center , for some reason I needed to tone it down with the inside of the panel, kinda nice to have that option with the Deco Plate.

I used the Poppystamps , Art Deco Birthday Greetings set for the center pael.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting .

Art Deco Joy

Hello crafters! Sue here with a card using products from the new Summer Theater release which has quite a few beautiful art deco dies.

20210706_125331c

I’m using the Geometric Deco Plate. It is actually two dies that can create several different looks. If you use both dies together you will end up with 4 die cut pieces. I used 3 of the 4 die cuts on my card.

I really wanted the art deco design to be the star so I decided to make a colourful background for it using Alcohol Pearl Inks. I squeezed a bunch of rainbow goodness colours onto Yupo paper and moved the alcohol ink around with a blower. I got a lot of pretty ridges and ripples for some great texture.

20210707_104009c

I adhered the art deco panel onto the inky background and then die cut the panel 3 more times so I could get four layers of some of the inner sections. I wanted to layer up the square pieces from the design and glue them back into place.

20210707_103837c

I used one of the sentiments from the new Art Deco Birthday Greetings and heat embossed it in platinum embossing powder. I popped this up with foam tape and added a few gems for a little more sparkle.

You can see in this photo that there’s a variety of heights on the card and this makes the card more visually pleasing.

Ocean Shaker
by Sue McRae

20210517_073450c

Hello crafters, today I have a sea shaker card for you using some of the cute Whittle ocean critters.

20210509_153417c

I created my focal panel by die cutting the shaker window with the Whittle Wave Background die. Next I embossed the piece with the Waves 3D Embossing Folder. There is so much wonderful swirly depth with this folder. Love it!

20210517_073713c

I added acetate and foam tape to the back of the panel and used sequins and beads for the shaker bits.

20210509_153717c

For the background of the shaker window I coloured a panel with alcohol inks in shades of blues and turquoise and adhered it to the back of the shaker window.

20210517_073813c

I added the dolphin, seahorse and jellyfish with foam tape and gave them googly eyes.

20210517_073633c

The Whittle Sea Life Sentiment Stamps have a bunch of fun sentiments to go with the all the new Whittle animals. I used one of them along with a Word Balloon Die and a few Fairy Jewels to finish the card.

Spring Into Spring
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_2826-wm

Hello Friends!

Thanks so much for dropping by our Poppystamps blog today! The snow is finally moving out and sunny spring days are moving in. Let's celebrate with a bright spring card. Take a look!

IMG_2823-wm

To create this happy hummingbird scene, I started with the Wavy Long Picket Fence and the Hill and Valley Grass Border, and aligned them to look like a grassy back yard. Then I added a piece of blue card stock behind the fence.

IMG_2809-wm

Once everything was in place, I then cut out my frame in a deeper blue, and framed it exactly where I wanted it to create the scene. Sometimes, you want to see more grass in front, and other times, more sky above. Since I knew my focus would be on the hummingbirds, I raised the frame higher up on the grass.

IMG_2811-wm

To make the Little Hummingbirds, I dripped alcohol ink on YUPO paper in shades of green to create this pretty jeweled look, then cut out the hummingbirds. I love the way the colors swirl.

IMG_2813-wm

I added the hummingbirds, and a few bright daisies from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set. These dimensional daisies really make my card pop. For the finishing touch, I added a few brand new Memory Box Open Studio Fairy Jewels. You are going to LOVE these!

Rainbow Thank You
by Tiffany Pryce

20210407_182257

Hey crafters! Tiffany here with a challenge inspired card for you. This month is all about rainbows, which I love, so I'm showcasing two colorful rainbow cards using only a few products. What’s not to love about an impactful, unique card that you can make with only a handful of my supplies?! Disclaimer, I am an alcohol ink newbie. These cards are probably the third time I’ve ever pulled out my alcohol inks, and I love it. If I can do it, I know you can too!

20210407_182600

On two pieces of 5×7 inch yupo paper, I worked one color at a time. I dropped 3 to 4 drops of 99% isopropyl alcohol and then 2 to 3 drops of ink. I used the Ranger air blower to move the ink back and forth until dry. Moving the ink back and forth with the blower helps to create texture and wispy-like edges. Usually, when working with alcohol ink, people use isopropyl alcohol and alcohol blending solution together. In general, the isopropyl alcohol lifts the ink and softens the color, and the blending solution helps mix the colors together. I did not want the colors to blend so I could keep the integrity and full value of each color in my rainbow. Once a color was dry, I added another 3 drops of isopropyl alcohol on the edge of that color and then 3 drops of the next color in the rainbow. I continued in a diagonal direction with all seven colors.

For finishing touches, I splattered isopropyl alcohol with a synthetic watercolor brush. Because it lifts ink, it made those tiny bubbles on top of the color. I loved the added texture. I also added isopropyl alcohol to the edges to help fade out and soften the outer edges. See the picture below for an example of both techniques. You can see the top left corner to see how I faded out the orange and yellow inks around the edge.

On one background, I added an extra step of adding foil on top of the alcohol ink. Ideally, with the foil side up, you lay the foil on top of a semi dry panel, smooth it, and peel back the foil to reveal a pretty marbling effect. I waited too long with my second panel (it was too dry) so it did not foil very well, but I wanted to share in case you would like to try this technique. I used rainbow foil below, but any color of foil will work the same way. Silver or gold foil would look pretty with the rainbow inks.

20210407_182346

The last step to completing my card was die cutting the sentiment. I die cut the shadow layer from vellum and the ‘thanks’ die twice from heavyweight, white cardstock, and once from silver foil cardstock. I popped both the panel and the sentiment with foam tape for dimension, and that’s it! Each time you make this card, it will be unique so a set of cards would make a very nice gift.

I hope you enjoyed my rainbow, alcohol ink cards and are inspired to try something new! Please don’t forget to check out the Poppystamps Instagram for a reel I created with this card. Happy crafting!
