Sending Something Special
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing a card I created with one of my very favorite Poppystamps dies from our newest release, Whittle Unicorn! Isn't this adorable?

IMG_7870-wm

Have you ever received happy mail that was so wonderful it felt like it was loaded with hearts and unicorns? Now you can send someone special something special, like actual hearts and unicorns!

IMG_7866-wm

I started with a deep, rich background made from YUPO paper and alcohol inks! This was the fun part. I just added a few drops of shades of red and waited for it to dry. Then I cut out a Wrapped Stitch Rectangle.

I cut the Whittle Unicorn and the Stitched Envelope in crisp white, and added tiny white hearts. These sweet little hearts are part of the Whittle Unicorn set! How magical is that! I cut the horn, mane, and tail in a bright pink and arranged it all out on my card base.

Send someone special their own little unicorn and make their day!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

You're Pandastic
by Sue McRae

Happy New Year crafters! Sue here with my first post of 2021. Today I have a colourful and cute card to start off your week.

I started by taking alcohol inks and making a background that I used to die cut the Confetti Heart Plate from. I adhered the panel to my card base and stamped the hugs sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set inside some of the hearts and added a few XO’s as well.

I die cut the panda from pearl card stock and coloured in the black sections with a marker. And of course I had to add googly eyes!

The Stitched Envelope is such a handy little die, perfect for adding visual interest to a card and great for having things like flowers, leaves or any of the Whittle Critters pop out of.

The sentiment was white heat embossed and added to the front of the envelope and I added a few sequins for a little sparkle.

You could easily make this a Valentine’s Day card since heart dies and stamps can be used all year long to show someone how much you care!

Wishing you a wonderful crafty week!

Spiders! A Halloween Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0064

Hello Poppy Peeps! You are in for a treat today. After all it is Trick or Treat season, and I have a fun and spooky card to inspire.

DSC_0053_wm

My card combines some sponge inking, embossing, and die cuts too. The new set, Halloween Ingredients has just about everything you need to make this card.

DSC_0052

The background was stamped with all the words, and embossed with white powder, before blending Distress Inks in several colors. All those cool little vial bottles were colored with copics, and the set even includes the tags in several sizes. The tiny spider is also a stamp from the set, and I stamped and fussy cut some out. I have no idea why, spiders freak me out! Much friendlier on a card!

DSC_0066_wm

One of the vials is tipping over, and several spiders have escaped! I just love a good scary story on an A2 card!

Do you know a few special people who would smile receiving  a cute and slightly scary Halloween card? I think I've sent out more greeting cards during this Covid season than past years combined. Love surprising people dear to me with a greets treat!

Halloween is right around the corner! Hope you and yours are safe and well, and planning to enjoy the holiday safely.

Bright Holiday
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_7258-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

Thanks for swinging on over to the Poppystamps blog today! I am sharing a bright and bold holiday card today, created with the new Holly Background! Take a look!

IMG_7255-wm

This Holly Background die has been super popular with our design team! We all have our little touches to make this personal and unique, and you get to see just how versatile this pretty die really is. I started with a light grey background panel cut with the Wrapped Stitched rectangle from Memory Box. I then added the Holly Background cut in a nice thick white cardstock.

IMG_7242-wm

To create the inlay pieces for the Holly leaves and berries, I made two panels with bright, vivid alcohol ink and YUPO paper. I just used shades of green and red in big drops to create the panels from which I cut out the red berries and green leaves.

IMG_7244-wm

Once the alcohol ink had dried, I cut out the red berries and adhered them to my card base with a pair of craft tweezers.

IMG_7246-wm

Once the berries were in place, I cut the Holly background again in green, and carefully placed the pieces like a little holiday puzzle. I love how bright and bold the alcohol ink holiday colors stand out against the light grey.

IMG_7251-wm

I love the sharp, clean lines and bright color of this! I think I'm going to make a few more and even play around with a few non-traditional holiday colors too! When I first planned out my design, I was originally going to add one of our big holiday words on the bottom, such as JOY, or Noel. But once the bright YUPO pieces were in place, I wanted to leave it just as it is, fresh and modern and cheerful.

Thanks so much for dropping by today! There's always something new and fresh on our blog! Come by every day for great ideas and inspiration!

Stenciling with Embossing Paste
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0086_wm

Greetings Poppy Peeps! Have you seen all the new stencils in the Poppystamps store? I'm here to show you a favorite way to use stencils. Maybe new to you, maybe a refresher. Hope it inspires you to use your stencils more. 

DSC_0052

Poppystamps Leafy Jumble Stencil is a fun all over leaf pattern. I did 3 panels with this stencil using metallic silver embossing paste. 

DSC_0049

I chose this panel and made 2 cards. First covering the card with Distress Inks, then laying down the stencil and sweeping on the paste with a craft knife. Now comes the hard part... waiting for it to dry! 

DSC_0072

I picked the spot which showed the most overall blend of color and cut my circle. 

DSC_0075

2 cards with one panel, this one will be a standard A2 card.

DSC_0078_wm

The circle was used inside this 5 x 5 square card.

DSC_0080_wm

All product will be listed below. Because this is a square, I love to create my own envelopes to go with it.

DSC_0094

So easy with a 1 2 3 Punchboard. And a great way to use up extra 2 sided paper from your stash! If you're like me, that stash is endless!

DSC_0085_wm

My A2 shaker card all set to send hugs to someone special.

DSC_0086_wm

And 2 hugs cards with one panel!

Hope you take a good long look at the stencils available now in the Poppystamps shop. And hope you were inspired to try a little paste with them! So many fun ways to enjoy crafting, aren't there? Have a great week!

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.
