Banded Hearts
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG

Hi Friends! It is Dana here today and I am sharing a Valentine's Day card using a few dies from the latest release at Poppystamps. I loved so many things from this release, it was hard to decide what I wanted to share! How about you? What is your favorite? 

SavingPNG-5

I started my card by die cutting the Banded Hearts Die from white cardstock. I then die cut it again from a variety of colors...just look at all of those colorful little hearts!

Next, I attached the Banded Hearts die to my A2 card base with a little liquid glue. I then inlaid all the hearts back into the die. This is a favorite technique of mine. I love the clean look that inlaying the negative pieces back into the die creates.

To finish my card, I die cut the Love Flourish die from soft gray cardstock 3 times. I stacked them together for a little dimension and stability. Lastly, I attached my stacked sentiment to my card front.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! I think this Banded Hearts die will make a beautiful wedding card...I can't wait to give it a try. Thanks for joining me today and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Textured Love

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

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!

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!

Valentine Fun
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-5

Good Morning Friends! It is Dana here again today sharing a set of Valentine's Day cards with you all. 

SavingPNG-3

I started my card by using the Grid Heart Frame Die. I ran it through my die cutting machine two times, once with white cardstock and once with glittered cardstock.

IMG_6249

I then attached my Grid Heart Frame to my A2 card base and inlaid all the little hearts back into the frame with liquid glue. 

IMG_6250

Next, I cut a piece of white cardstock .75 inches wide and covered the third row of hearts. * I did this to allow my sentiment to stand out and not be distracted by the hearts showing through to my sentiment. I then used the Valentine's Fun stamp set and stamped my sentiment onto a piece of vellum. I wrapped this around my card panel and attached it to the back with a piece of tape. 

SavingPNG-4

I just love how I was able to create two cards with two passes through my die cutting machine.

SavingPNG-6

I am loving this die! I can't wait to create a rainbow of inlaid hearts in my next card. 

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

Valentine's blog blitz - Love & Hugs
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.57878356454E12

Happy new year, Poppy fans! We are continuing our valentine's blog blitz and I'm sharing 2 cards today showcasing the beautiful Grid heart frame die. Although the Danish flourists have long adapted the valentine's tradition, I myself have not. So instead I made cards of love and hugs.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For the first card I ink blended a background with pink oxide inks and cut the frame 4 times from white cardstock. I layered the frames and glued them on top of the pink base.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut and colored the Whittle panda. To avoid getting my black marker all over the panda I placed a piece of cardstock behind the eye.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut the envelope, heart tag and love outline letters from white cardstock - the shadow from black cardstock. I ink blended the tag and also the little cut out heart. I stamped the sentiments and tugged the panda into the envelope so it looks like he's holding the tag.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

Both the envelope and love outline are popped up with craft foam and the panda itself is popped up as well. I ran over the tiny heart...
Watermark1.57878356454E12

... as well as the letters with a clear sparkle pen and then glossy accents for a shiny dimensional look. Isn't it pretty!?
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For a final touch I added some clear sequins.

IMG_20200112_000701

The other card is all about hedge-hugs. Here I also ink blended the base with oxide inks but this time I threw in a little purple as well.
IMG_20200112_000701

I cut and colored the Whittle hedgehog. Once again I stuck a piece of cardstock behind the ear to ensure not getting my light and dark colors mixed.
IMG_20200112_000701

I left the hugs heart white but popped it up and backed it with a piece of cardstock inked with the same color as the base.
IMG_20200112_000701

Although the light makes it a little hard to see the Grid heart frame is heat embossed with a pretty soft pink and sparkly embossing powder. Sooo gorgeous!
IMG_20200112_000701

And here's the finished card. I hope I have inspired you. But wait... the best is yet to come! You could win the Grid heart frame used on these cards.

Happy New Year friends of Poppystamps and more! Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog Blitz , where you have a chance to win this : Banded Hearts craft die just by leaving a comment here on this post. 

E9619F1F-99CA-43FA-BD65-C4BC69ECD847_1_201_a

I cut many layers in quite a few colors to see what I wanted to use.

B5ECCFD0-9E10-42C0-8F17-D2DA2F74AC2B_1_201_a

I wanted to show you the fun leftovers of this die great for confetti and for shaker cards.

It's very simple to add a few dots on the back of the die to adhere to the base of your card.

07C68A18-3071-4F74-868E-CE45D870FCB1_1_201_a

I layered my card base with a few colors adhered just a bit down from the layer before. 

I think this would be beautiful in all white as well for an anniversary card etc.

The card above it the one that I layered three times , then added some Martha Stewart glitter to the centers. So many options for this beautiful Poppystamps die. The sentiment is from  Memory box : Valentine Fun CL489  I used the same stamp set for both cards.

E0BDFEC6-735B-4E07-837D-018332B87124 

This card above it a bit more simple and so easy to make. One layer with a simple envelope using Poppystamps :Stitched Envelope craft die. I cut a piece of paper to fit inside then stamped the Hugs sentiments using Memory box clear stamp called: Valentine Fun Cl489

Snow Speckle Washi Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0015

Happy Holidays to you! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a card made with the new Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape Poppystamps has available in the store. 

DSC_0018_wm

I've used several of the new dies out this season, plus Mod Poinsettias. And here's a hint on a way to use the wide Washi.

DSC_0024

I covered a red card stock panel with the Washi, and die cut 3 smallest poinsettias. The width makes it easy to cover a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

DSC_0025

DSC_0019

The touch of softened red with the white dots went nicely with the pastel card. I added white die cut poinsettias, sponged inked with the same aqua behind my Bethlehem scene. The sentiment, O Holy Night was cut down a bit to fit on the bottom.

DSC_0022

Hope you enjoyed today's holiday post, and hope your holiday cards are well on their way to being done!

Have a wonderful, Happy, Crafty Holiday!
