You're Pandastic

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!

Challenge Reminder: Colors Of Autumn
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Autumn Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a reminder to enter the PSC#74 Colors Of Autumn!  The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is crafty using colors of Autumn... reds, yellows, oranges, and everything in between.  Not feeling like a color challenge?  That's ok.. how about some fall foliage, pumpkins, apples, gourds, and cornstalks?  Maybe some whittle fall critters?  Gobble gobble!!!  Just like the bounty of the harvest, there are lots of possibilities! Link up your projects... cards, tags, home decor, and more!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!

To help give you some inspiration, I created my card using the Maple Leaf Side Strips and Stencil. I die cut it out of white cardstock and then used the stencil to color in the leaves using some fall ink colors and a blending brush. Then adhered the white panel to the front of an off white card base.

For the sentiment, I used the Luscious Script Hello and cut it out using some orange foiled paper.

Glittered Holly
by Sue McRae

20201023_093314-(1)cc

Hi everyone, Sue here with my first Christmas card of the season and I thought I would sparkle it up big time!

I couldn't wait to use the gorgeous Holly Background die and decided that all the open spaces in the design would be wonderful to fill will glitter glue.

20201023_093251-(1)c

If you follow along with my posts, you'll remember that I used glitter glue to create a Valentine's Day card that can be found here. Since that card was posted, Memory Box came out with their own brand of glitter glue which I'm using on this project. All the scrumptious colours can be found here.

20201020_163618c

First I took the Holly Background and die cut it 3 times from 110lb Neenah Solar White and once from gold glitter card stock. I adhered the white layers together and attached it to my card base.

20201020_203331c

I chose my colours of glitter glue and squeezed them into the different die cut areas. I used a toothpick to help get the glitter glue in the corners because the glitter glue does shrink as it dries. Because of this I make sure to use enough glitter glue so it comes to the top of the third layer of the die cut panel. It will drop down after it dries and if you get a little bit of glitter glue on the top portion of the die cut panel it doesn't matter because it will be covered up with the last layer, the gold glitter piece.

20201021_161211c

This technique is easy and quick and since there are so many fabulous glitter glue colours out there, the options are boundless!

20201023_093306-(1)c

I did my glittering in the evening and left it overnight and it was dry in the morning. Then I added my top gold glitter layer and a simple white heat embossed sentiment.

20201023_093259-(1)c

I had a lot of fun with this technique and I may be eyeing another Christmas die to use with the glitter glues. I hope you give this a try!

Have a great week!

SPooKy Boo!
by Jeanne Jachna

Spooky-Boo-Two

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  I'm getting excited as Halloween is getting closer!  We spent last weekend dressing up the house with bales of hay, corn stalks, indian corn, pumpkins and colorful gourds.  A trip to the local farm stand is always a feast for the eyes!  It's been hard for all of us staying home in an effort to beat COVID.  It's been even harder trying to find places to go where you won't be around too many people.  Here's a peek from our escape..

IMG_20201017_160549

There are some benefits to living in rural Indiana!    How could I not come home with a trunk full? I hardly knew where to begin!! 

Spooky-Boo

Today I'm mixing a little old with the new.  Maybe you see an old favorite on my design?   It's the Diamond Background die.  Yes!  It's still available and as beautiful as ever.  It's one of the very first dies I purchased from Poppystamps!  I inlaid the entire panel with shades of yellow and orange for a fun harlequin pattern.

Spooky-Boo-Five

I topped the clean smooth panel with the new Boo Outline die cut from grey and black card stock.  

Spooky-Boo-Four

All that was left was to tuck little skeletons cut from the Surprise Skeleton die behind the words.  The die features the Surprise Skeleton inside an open circle.  A few snips free's it from the circle so you're left with the top half of a complete skeleton. 

Spooky-Boo-One

I love the contrast of the bright colorful background with the dark boo word cuts.  The skeletons are glued loosely so they look like they might pop from the design! 

Spooky-Boo-Three

I hope you're making the most of the season and encourage you to take a ride in the car if you're feeling cooped up.  The crisp air and colorful leaves will brighten you're mood!

Holly Background

Poppystamps-Holly Background-Jeanne Jachna-1

Hi friends!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card made with dies from the new release.

Poppystamps-Holly-Backgroun

I love bold colors and clean graphic designs and this card contains both.  I started out with a white card base topped with a slightly smaller panel of aqua card stock.

Next I cut the Holly Background die from white card stock and adhered it to the assembled panel.   I cut the panel a few more times from shades of green, red and pink card stock and inlaid all the pieces.   The die cut pieces all fit together and the end result is smooth and flat. 

Poppystamps-Holly Background-Jeanne Jachna-3

When I originally tried to add the Snowy Merry Christmas sentiment it was difficult to read over the busy background.  To help bring out the sentiment I add a second die cut from gold glitter card stock, and a strip of vellum to soften and blur the background.

I'm happy with this clean inlay card with just the right amount of sparkle and shine.
