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

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.

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.

Stained Glass Angel

Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing on the blog another holiday card from the new release.  This card is using the new Stained Glass Angel die.  To start, you will first need to create your background layer. Sponge on Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink onto a 3.5 inch x 4.5 inch piece of white cardstock.

Add some water splatters then dry off the splatters with a piece of paper towel. Next add some white paint splatters using a whait craft paint, water and a paint brush.

Now die cut the stained glass angel image from the die 3 times using white, silver and gold card stock. From the white card stock piece, you will only need the angel pieces from the die. From the gold card stock, you will only need to save the halo. You will use the entire frame outline of the image from the silver card stock.

Next die cut a 4.25 x 5.5. inch silver stitched border frame using the Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die from Memory Box. 

To assemble your card, first add the silver trimmings border to a white card base using liquid adhesive. Next adhere your stained glass angle frame to your distress inked background with your choice of adhesive. I find spray adhesive works well on intricate frame pieces such as this one.

Now paper piece your angel together using the die cut white and gold angle and halo pieces. Next adhere your focal image to the center of your card using some 3M foam tape. Finally stamp your sentiment from the new Christmas quotes sentiment set and pop that sentiment onto the card with foam tape.

I hope you all have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!

Spread your wings and fly

Hello everyone! All good things must come to an end and today I'm sharing my last card for Poppystamps as I chose to step down from the design team due to personal reasons. Butterflies to me symbolise change and growth, so it absolutely fits just right. It wasn't until after I made this card that I thought of the funny coincidence, that I used the Beautiful butterflies sidekick frame on my first card for Poppystamps as well. You can check it out here

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.
IMG_20200819_205112

The butterfly frame I covered with the coordinating stencil and lightly ink blended a bit of Distress ink over the butterflies. As I assembled the card I didn't like the white frame, so I ended up ink blending the whole frame.

I layered the 3 frames only adding glue to the frames, not stems, flowers or butterflies. I thought it would make it look more airy. I then stamped a sentiment and cut out butterflies from glitter cardstock with the coordinating (and included) butterfly die.

I adhered them with a dot of glue just to the centre of the butterflies for a bit of dimension. Just look at that sparkle.

That's it from me guys, it's time for me to spread my wings and fly. I enjoyed creating with these wonderful dies and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. I'll still be making cards so do stop by my blog or Instagram, I'd sure love to see you!

Holly Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Christmas Card with Poppystamps dies by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here and today with another Christmas card I made using the new Christmas release dies. On the background, I used some watercolor paper and color bursts.  I die cut out the Holly Background Die using white cardstock and also the Snowy Merry Christmas Die which I also die cut out in Rinea Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper. Then I ran all of the die cut pieces through my Xyron Creative Station Lite and adhered them to the front of my card. Added some sequins and then I was done.

Dancing Leaves

Are you about done with summer? Looking forward to Autumn? Cooler weather, changing of the leaves, and hopefully closer to a Covid vaccine...

I'm showing a new die from Poppy, in the shop now, and so sweet I just had to share!

It's called, Maple Symphony, and here's a look at how I used it to create my Autumn greeting card.

DSC_0010

When you die cut the panel, the leaves are easily separated. I used my oxide inks to color them.

I added drops of ink and white paint. I even think just leaving the solid color behind the leaves is gorgeous. I just love how oxide ink colors blend together, so I played a bit with colors.

DSC_0025_wm

The sentiment is versamarked onto a Heat Resistant Acetate, as I wanted to see the leaves behind the words.

Is it blazing hot where you live? We routinely have 100+ in my valley, great for ripening fruit, but not for keeping a garden alive! Hope you found some 'cool' inspiration today. The  Maple Symphony die is available in Poppy's store now (together with some new Christmas dies). I'm sure a release/giveaway is around the corner!

Stay well and safe my friends! Hugs!
