CAS June Challenge Reminder
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6947-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad that you have stopped by today! It's time to say Hello Summer, and what a better way to do it than by playing along with our Poppystamps June Challenge, CAS! 

Cleanandsimple

CAS is short for Clean and Simple, and CAS is just the way I love to create in the hot, sticky Florida summer weather! I made a super easy breezy CAS card that reminds me a lot of summer, when the flowers are wild and high and the bright color is everywhere! Take a look!

IMG_6943-wm

I started with a clean and crisp white card base, but unfortunately, my photos all have a little yellowish tint to them this week -- it's been raining like a monsoon all week! I love to photograph during the day when my house is filled with bright, natural Florida sunlight, but now the skies are dark and stormy. When I create CAS cards, I love to use bright colors and extra bright white card stock too.

 

IMG_6938-wm

I cut out the Pointed Rectangle Frame in white, which makes a nice border, and then the Hello Outline in green and white. I then cut a few flower silhouettes from Tall Sketch Daisies, and played with the arrangement to vary the size of the daisies.

 

IMG_6940-wm

Then I added the Peek a Boo Kitty. Whenever I make any of the Peek a Boo animals, I always add a piece on the back for the eyes and the nose by cutting very tiny pieces of paper and gluing it to the back. You can see how I arranged and glued the tiny daisy stems on to the Hello Outline. Here is my "designer tip" for working with lots of die cuts, like I love to do: pay attention to the tiny details, like borders, edges, how the pieces fit together, what is showing or sticking out. It's those finishing touches that can really make your projects pop!

 

IMG_6941-wm

Once my pieces were all assembled, I just lifted the whole cut and gluesd it onto my card base. I said it was pretty easy breezy! There's my Peek a Boo Kitty popping out behind the "e."

 

PSblogChallenge-2

Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you'll create! Simple create a CAS card using at least one Poppystamps die or stamp set, and link it up on our Poppystamps linky to the right. Think easy breezy summer fun!

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz Love and a dog
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.591885508193E12

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Blog Blitz post. That means lots of chances for you to get your hands on Poppystamps products. Please see details below. Today I've kept it fairly simple since the pandemic that is still going on meant my new products arrived late (yesterday, but who's keeping score, lol). But I'm super excited it got here, so I could show you this new Whittle Cutie Dog die.
Watermark1.591885508193E12

I cut a panel, sentiment and hearts out of some patterned paper. The Whittle cutie dog I cut from white cardstock.

Using a small piece of printer paper I protected one area of the doggie while ink blending over the other.

I layered 3 different colors, and finished off with a black marker for the eyes and black nuvo drops for the nose.
Watermark1.591885508193E12

I put the love cut out together using both glitter and patterned paper. Before adhering it I stamped the sentiments to go with it. This sentiment is so true to me! I adhered the dog and then both the positive and negative heart cut outs. Also cut from that gorgeous glitter paper.

2020 Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz Begins
By Jeanne Jachna

Whittle-Kitty-Four

You picked a great time for a visit!  We're excited to announce the latest Poppystamps release!  We're calling it "Garden Variety" and you can see it here at our store site.    To celebrate we're having a Blog Blitz!  That's a special time that we set aside to show you the new products and give you a chance to win some of them for yourself!

Whittle-Kitty

My card features the new Whittle Cutie Cat - and that's today's prize too!  This is a nice large die (as shown on my A2 size card), with detailed cut lines.   I gave mine more detail by adding a calico pattern with Copic Markers.  The cut lines make it easy to slip a piece of scrap paper over areas you don't want colored. 

Whittle-Kitty-Three
My Whittle Cutie Cat has made a nest of the Adriana Wreath cut from white card stock and layered over new pretty papers from Memory Box called Garden Folly.   The 6" pad is eye candy with pretty prints in bold bright colors. 

Whittle-Kitty-Two
The sentiment is from the Whittle Love Sentiments Clear Stamp set.  It's got lots of cute sentiments that would work well with this die cut. 

Whittle-Kitty-One

Long time, no see
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.589394526576E12

Hello everyone! Hope you are all well. Today I wanted to play with a few pun sentiments and a rainbow.

IMG_20200513_201956

I die cut the giraffe 5 times from white cardstock, and cut 5 strips of patterned paper.

IMG_20200513_202037

I adhered the strips to my A2 sized card base and colored the 5 giraffes with Copics in darker, coordinating colors.

IMG_20200513_202112

From the same patterned paper I then cut 5 labels to fit my sentiements.

IMG_20200513_202142

I used the same darkest marker to color the edge of the labels to make them stand out. For this label I even snipped the stamp in 2. I find it easier than to mask the stamp. That way I always end up with ink in wrong places. And I can easily place them together if I want to stamp them as intended later.

Watermark1.589394586807E12

I then adhered the giraffes and popped up the labels. And then I thought it was kind of missing something, yet I didn't want to add more dimension or glitter. I know, weird right? Corona isolation must have gotten the better of me, LOL. Anyway, I added a fine black line all around the base, repeating 3 times. I also added a few "stars". I guess I had to have some "sparkle", after all.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great crafty day!

Pop Up May Flowers
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6905-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

We have all heard that April showers bring May flowers, and we have all had a very rainy April, haven't we? So let's celebrate the little things with a few tiny May flowers on this Pop Up easel card! Have you TRIED this yet?

IMG_6897-wm

When I first saw this unique Adriana Pop Up Easel Set, I was so excited, but intrigued too! How does it work? I love seeing all the beautiful projects our design team is putting together, and once you try one for yourself, you be amazed at how easy it is to be creative!

IMG_6902-wm

Everything you need is in this beautiful 6 piece die set to create pop up easel designs that are so easy to pair with your favorite Poppystamps products. I used the Peek-a-Boo Bunny popping out of the Grand Watering Can, decorated with a few extra Orchard Leaves and a few flowers from the Floral Cluster. What would you create?

IMG_6896-wm

Every flower needs a sparkling center too, and thanks to this collection of Fairy Sugar Glitter Glue from Memory Box Open Studio, you can make the sparkly magic happen!

IMG_6894-wm

I cut the background easel pieces in white, and added the Orchard Leaves in green, and Floral Clusters for pops of color. The Peek-a-Boo Bunny was cut in white, and the Grand Watering Can was colored with Distress Oxide inks sprinkled with water.

IMG_6900-wm

Slide the top of the card back to reveal the hidden message inside! The Colwell Label Set pairs perfectly with the shapes from the Easel Set to create the perfect surprise greeting. The HUGS was cut with the Poetic Uppercase Alphabet.

IMG_6899-wm

Beautiful May days are on their way for all of us, so keep crafting, keep sharing, and keep being creative!

Thanks so much for joining us today!
