Blog Blitz Giveaway
by Sue McRae

IMG_1212c

Welcome to another day of our spring Blog Blitz! There's been lots of inspirational projects using the fabulous new products from Poppystamps!

Today I have a simple shaker card using the new Berry Square Frame.

I started by creating a panel using alcohol inks in blues and aquas on Yupo paper. I cut a piece from this panel to be the background of my shaker square.

IMG_1163c

The Berry Square Frame was cut from white card stock and also cut from my white card front because I'm making an inlaid shaker. The frame will sit in the square die cut.

IMG_1219c

I took the Garden Leaves and Berries and die cut the berries a bunch of times from the same white card stock and adhered them to the front panel. Then I assembled the shaker part and attached the panel to a white card base.

IMG_1222c

For the sentiment I die cut the Doodle Happy Birthday 4 times from black card stock to give it height so it can pop from the textured background.

You Spin Me Round
by Sue McRae

IMG_1084c

Hello crafty friends! Sue here with a Whittle critter card that can be spun around by the recipient!

IMG_20200223_125046166_BURST000_COVER-ANIMATION

I took a few of the Whittle animals and die cut them from scraps of alcohol ink card stock.

IMG_1061c

To make the circle mechanism I die cut the Concentric Rings in colours to match the animals (except for the purple) and I die cut a circle from white card stock that is slightly smaller than the purple ring. 

IMG_1043c

I adhered the coloured rings onto the white circle and die cut another white circle that is smaller than the rainbow rings. I poked a hole through the centre of both.

IMG_1053c

The small white circle has to be large enough to have a brad poke through and to have 4 foam squares adhered around the edge of the circle without touching the brad. This is how the coloured rings will spin. I placed the brad through the top of the coloured circle and into the small white circle with the foam on the back side of the white circle.

IMG_1057c

Then I took the animals and adhered them to the back of the colored circle making sure they don't touch the small white circle or else it won't be able to spin.

IMG_1066c

Now I have my spinning animal wheel.

IMG_1093c

I cut a 4.5" square white card stock and scored random lines onto it. I attached this to my card base then removed the liners from the foam squares on the back of the animal circle and adhered it to the centre of the scored panel. Now the wheel can spin.

IMG_1086c

For the sentiments I white heat embossed a few from the Whittle Love stamp set and adhered them flat so they wouldn't interfere with the animals spinning.

IMG_1074c

This was a fun card to make and is not difficult to create. You would cut down on the steps if you used a solid coloured circle instead of a rainbow one.

My card is perfect to enter for the monthly challenge, Animal Menagerie, here. Don't forget to play along, you have until the end of February!

Thanks for visiting with me today and happy crafting!

Graceful Heart
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-6

Hi Friends! I hope you all are doing well and having a Wonderful month. I am excited to be back today sharing a thank you card with you all. If you are like me, you never have enough thank you cards, so I always try and create a few when I have a little extra time. 

SavingPNG-8

I started my card by creating my Alcohol Ink background. (Colors: Botanical, Sublime and Envy). I actually created two backgrounds. When I get the mess out for Alcohol Inks I usually create multiples. I did one background where I added the ink along with Blending Solution to a felt square and wiped it across my Yupo paper. I did the other one by using the same felt square but instead of wiping it across the Yupo I dabbed it onto the Yupo.

SavingPNG-3

Both background would work for my card, but I decided to use the one where I wiped the color across my Yupo. Next, I used the Grace Heart Frame Die and die cut it from white cardstock. This is such a gorgeous die... 

SavingPNG-9

I attached my die cut frame to my Yupo paper with liquid glue. I then used the heart die cut and stamped my sentiment (from the Art Deco You Are Wonderful stamp set) directly onto the heart. I inlaid the heart back into the frame with foam adhesive. 

SavingPNG-7

To finish my card, I added a few clear sparkling jewels. 

Thanks for joining me today and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

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!

Challenge Reminder
by Sue McRae

I'm popping in to remind everyone that the monthly challenge going on at Poppystamps is Animal Menagerie.

IMG_0598c

I made a baby card for the challenge using some of the new Whittle animal dies. The animals in this series are adorable and there's a whole family of them. You can see them all here.

IMG_0580c

The giraffe and hedgehog were die cut from some scrap alcohol ink paper I had and I added some detail with Copic markers. The panda has a fuzzy fun flock belly and of course I had to add googly eyes!

IMG_0585c

The are sitting inside the cute Stitched Envelope that is so easy to put together. I also used the new Whittle Cloud Border with the great stitching.

IMG_0574c

I finished off the card with white paint splatters on the background and a sentiment.

Now it's your turn to make a project for the challenge. You have all month to play along. Just make sure to include an animal on your card and at least one Poppystamps product. The winner will get a gift certificate to the Poppystamps online store! All the details can be found here.

I can't wait to see your creations!

Textured Love
by Tina Wilstrup

IMG_20200120_204650

Valentine's day is getting closer - do you have your card for your loved one ready?
Watermark1.579466688841E12

I had this alcohol ink panel lying around. I didn't like it so it's just been sitting there. I first dry embossed it with the new Memory Box Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder. I then poured on some isopropyl alcohol to reactivate the colors. I kept moving the panel until it was all activated.
Watermark1.579466688841E12

I let some of the ink drip off. It was too purple for me. And this is what I ended with. In hindsight I probably should have stopped now because this in my opinion shows the embossing better. 
Watermark1.579466688841E12

But I didn't stop. I added new pink and purple alcohol inks, layering until I was happy with the look. Once dry I used a fine nail file over the embossed areas to remove the alcohol ink and make them stand out more. IMG_20200120_204713
I cut the panel to size and cut the Meadowblossom frame from white cardstock and layered over it. The heart shape in the embossed panel just fits inside the cut out heart on the meadowblossom frame, so pretty! I then cut the Love flourish from white cardstock and placed it inside the heart.
Happy crafting!

Rainbow Shaker
by Sue McRae

IMG_0565c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a colourful rainbow shaker card.

IMG_0526c

I love a good rainbow so I decided to pull out some of my favorite alcohol inks and make a rainbow heart card. I used Yupo paper, alcohol inks, blending solution, rubbing alcohol and an air blower.

IMG_0540c

I put some blending solution on the yupo and added dots of color in a row up the paper and moved the ink around with the air blower until I was happy with the blending.

IMG_0543c

Using the Grid Heart Frame I die cut the panel, adhered a piece of clear plastic on the back and added a double layer of foam tape around the frame and in between each row of hearts. If you only add foam to the outside of the panel all the sequins would fall to the bottom and I didn't want that. I wanted to have sequins in each row of hearts and I wanted the sequins in each row to match the colour of the inks.

IMG_0568c

I adhered white card stock to the back of the panel so the sequin colours would pop against the white.

IMG_0562c

For the sentiments I used three from the Whittle Love Sentiments set that are perfect for sending to a friend. I white heat embossed the sentiments on black card stock and punched them out with circle punches. I wanted to keep the sentiments small so they wouldn't cover up too much of the fabulous rainbow shaker!

IMG_0555c

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Hope you make a shaker card for a friend, I know it will put a smile on her face!

Challenge Reminder
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.574854590872E12

Hello Poppy fans! It's Tina here with a challenge reminder for the last challenge of the year, and of course we're making it about Christmas.
Watermark1.574854590872E12

I'm sharing a fairly simple card, although putting it together was quite tedious. I started by planning out where I wanted to place the beautiful dove cut out, and then first stamped and silver heat embossed the sentiment.
Watermark1.574854590872E12

The dove frame I also heat embossed with silver embossing powder, and the colored inlayed die cut pieces are from some leftover alcohol ink panel using a dark green, teal and silver mixative. If you're die cutting yupo paper, I recommend running it back and forth a couple of times to prevent breakage of those tiny pieces when taking them apart. Now, maybe I was using the wrong glue but those pieces just wouldn't stick, lol. In the end the work and time spent was worth it.
Watermark1.574854590872E12

As a finishing touch I added a couple of silver sequins.

I hope with this card I have inspired you to join our challenge. But in case you need a little more motivation, how about a prize? The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!  You have until 12 am US EST on December 29 to link up your design here!  We'll start a new challenge and announce the winners on  January 1. We can't wait to see what you make!
