This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together.  Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects.  The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base.  This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet.

Blog Blitz Window Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello! Nadine here with a window Christmas card I created for the Poppystamps Winter/Holiday Blog Blitz.  I used several of the new 2019 Holiday release dies on my card.  Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to see how you can WIN the Cottage Window die that I used on my card.

Window Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier 1

To create the background, I ran a brown ink over a woodgrain embossing folder and then embossed a tan piece of cardstock. Then I die cut out the Cottage Window in brown cardstock, added some foam tape to the back of the window frame and attached a piece of white cardstock and then more foam tape to the back and adhered it to the front of my card. The shutters of the window I added some foam tape and slide them behind the frame of the window. 

I die cut out the dove from the Dove and Olive Branch and two of Holiday Mistletoes from white cardstock. Then colored the mistletoes with some Copic markers and airbrushed some light grey Copic onto the dove. The olive branch from the Dove and Olive Branch, I cut several times using green cardstock.  The Christmas Tree in the window, I cut out using the Whittle Trees die that is from the 2018 Holiday release.

Party Animal Card
by Nadine Carlier

Party Animal Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello there Poppystamps fans! Nadine here and I am sharing a fun party animal card with you today.  When I was trying to figure out what to make I saw this scrap piece of burlap sitting on my table and I immediately thought it would make a fun background for the cute Poppystamps Whittle animal dies.  I have never used burlap on a card like this before, it was pretty easy to do I just cut it into a square and adhered it down.

I die cut out the Weeping Willow Branch in dark green cardstock and adhered it to top of the card over the burlap.  For the Whittle Monkey, I die cut him out in dark brown cardstock and also a beige cardstock, cut out his face, tummy, and ears from the beige cardstock and adhered them to the dark brown. Then I wrapped his tail around the vine of the Weeping Willow.

For the Whittle Lion and the Whittle Tiger, I cut them both out in yellow-orange color cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them in a little.  The Whittle Tiger I decided to have her sit on the larger of the two Whittle Mounds.

I then cut out the Whittle Oval Wood Frames, once using dark brown cardstock and again using white cardstock.  I used the dark brown for the frame itself and used the inner part from the white to stamp the sentiment "Have Fun You Party Animal" from the Whittle Everyday Stamp Set.  Then die cut some of the Cheery Cardinals and adhered them around the frame on the Weeping Willow Branch.

After I adhered all the Whittle Animals on my card I felt it still needed a little more so got out my airbrush machine and airbrushed on some Copics on the burlap, animals, and sentiment.  Then my card was complete! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Challenge Reminder, Animal Kingdom
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1786

Hi there , I made this card for the:  Animal Kingdom Poppystamps Challenge. The birds just seemed to go best with the light and airy poppies .  I used Poppystamps Whittle birds ( so sweet ) and Garden Poppy Stitched Frame. This was simple and easy to create and sometimes simple is best , lets say for sympathy or thinking of you cards.

I taped the die onto the panel then glued the paned to a pretty blue panel that then went on top of my white card base.  I was going to add a sentiment  but then thought this could go into a notecard set and best to leave blank until the person knows what the occasion will be. I think it could be used for lots of occasions.

Rainbow Distress Peaceful Dove
By Jeanne Jachna

Rainbow-Bird-Collage-Two
I'm sharing three cards today that all feature a rainbow distress background that would look great with  just about any dies in your collection.
Rainbow-Bird
I recently purchased some Yoseng make up brushes from Amazon.  They are very reasonably priced (compared to stencil brushes) so I thought I'd give them a try.  They are amazing!  The ink goes on in less than half the time and the results are soft and line free.   The brushes come in many different sizes and I wasn't sure what would be best so I bought a variety pack.   The large are great for distressing large areas (half or entire card front)  but if you want to work with stencils or ink smaller spaces you'll want to use a smaller brush.   The one I used for this panel is the 1 3/8" head.   You will have to experiment to see what size works best for you.  I have one brush for each color family (red, yellow, orange etc.) and haven't had to wash them yet.  When I want to switch to a lighter color I simply brush on a piece of scrap paper until all the ink is off the brush.    When your panel is to your liking you can splatter it with water if you like.
Rainbow-Bird-Collage-One
This card was made with the Peaceful Dove Collage cut from a piece of white card stock and then layered over a rainbow distress ink panel.   I trimmed the edges so the rainbow colors peek out around the edges of the panel too! 
Rainbow-Pastel-Bird-Two
For my second card I cut the Peaceful Dove die from a distress inked panel to create a shaker.   I adhered acetate to the back of the die cut window, placed adhesive foam tape around the opening, filled it with sequins and then topped it with some card stock before adhering the panel to the card base.   The die cut dove is fixed in place with glue over the acetate.
Rainbow-Pastel-Bird
After I cut out that beautiful dove I couldn't throw it away!  So I made one more!
Rainbow-Stripe-Bird-Two
I painted stripes of distress ink on a watercolor panel and then topped it with the Peaceful Dove I cut to create the shaker card above. 
Rainbow-Stripe-Bird
These came together easy and their packed with rainbow color!  What a great way to surprise someone "just because" and say "hello"!
