Whittle Happy Bday Fox
by Kim Singdahlsen

7.27.21 PS side BL

The brand new Marzipan Alphabet has quickly become a favorite of mine! I love the interesting look of the lines in each letter. My card is really very simple - just a Whittle to go with the sentiment - but the letters stand out so well, it looks like it is more detailed than it is!

That's not to diminish the Whittle!  This is the Whittle Happy Fox and he really does have a sweet look on his face!

7.27.21 PS close BL

I picked a cheerful paper for the edges from the Memory Box Garden Folly pad, then using the colors in the paper, I surrounded the Whittle Happy Fox with an outdoor scene. The Orchard Leaves and the Garden Leaves and Berries sets are just good all-around sets with their various leaves, vines and berries.  Funny though, the flower is the Small Blooming Poinsettia. I tend to use it year-round because I love the look of it.  It's natural-looking - maybe even a bit raggedy - and I say it in a very positive way!  Plus it has three sizes so it can fit into many different scenes. 

7.21.21 PS dies BL

I used Kraft Woodgrain paper for the letters thinking it would be a nice outdoorsy, masculine look but as I worked on it I started envisioning tiki huts! That's when I decided to decorate him with bright foliage and some sparkly gems!

I love making cards that keep me smiling the entire time. Any card with a Whittle is that kind of card! I totally love the letters then with that the happy fox looking at me as I worked, this was a very enjoyable card to make - and I love the results!Kim Floral Signature copy

Hello Poppystamps friends, Marybeth Lopez here today sharing a card using the new Geometric Deco Plate from Poppystamps.

I used an older panel made with alcohol inks that I saves. Cut the plate twice and layered it over the panel.

With all the tiny details I used Craft Bond spray and it went on in no time.

I know I covered up the center , for some reason I needed to tone it down with the inside of the panel, kinda nice to have that option with the Deco Plate.

Art Deco Happy Birthday
by Tiffany Pryce

20210715_135459

Hello friends! Tiffany here with more Art Deco inspiration from the Summer Theater release. When I was thinking about this card, the Wizard of Oz kept coming to mind. The glitz, green, and opulence of the Emerald City was my inspiration, along with the sample from the Poppystamps website.

Here's a look at all of the supplies I used for this card. I like that it is easy to mass produce with minimal supplies and can be customized to fit your recipient. Another bonus is that it is flat so it will go through the mail easily.

I started by trimming a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack. I choose a pattern with geometric shapes to go along with the Art Deco theme. Anyone else keep pattern paper forever? I encourage you to use it as a background to any card! Then, I die cut the Reeded Deco Curve Border die from green foil cardstock from the Polished Foil Pad. I die cut twice to create the border around my sentiment. The emerald green color is so pretty.

For the sentiment, I die cut an oval from the center of my pattern paper. I ink blended some dark green dye ink around the edges for a halo effect, and silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Art Deco Birthday Greetings stamp set. Finally, I added green Fairy Jewels around my card for a little sparkle.

Challenge Reminder: Just Add Water
by Nancy Penir

Hello! I have a challenge reminder for you. This month's inspiration is: 'Just Add Water'.

 

DSC_0016 3_wm

I chose to do an underwater scene with Open Studio's  fabulous new embossing folder.

I began with an aqua cardstock, embossed it, and added Perfect Pearls for a shimmer. Haven't played with my perfect pearls for a while. I just love the sheen it gives the tops of the embossing.

Also added some copper pearling (very light handed with the copper!).

To finish my card, I stamped a message from Poppy's new Art Deco Stamp set, with a strip of the pattern paper at the top.

Welcome back to the blog, crafty friends! Tiffany here with a a fun, Art Deco inspired card using products from the newest release, Summer Theater! If you haven't seen it yet, head over to the shop after reading this blog. It's so pretty and will add a little drama to your Poppystamps collection. My card is pretty straightforward so let's get into it!

The main elements of my card use the Geometric Deco Plate background die. First, I used this die to die cut two A2-sized panels - once from light gold cardstock from the Polished Foil Pad and once from dark yellow cardstock. I adhered the gold frame on top of the yellow frame with liquid glue, offsetting the frames the slightest bit so you can see the yellow peek out. I adhered the layered frame to an A2-sized piece of dark navy cardstock.

You could leave it like this and add your sentiment, but I wanted to step it up a bit. After my frame was complete, I used the Geometric Deco Plate die to die cut two additional A2 panels - once from seafoam green and once from aqua cardstock from the Fresh Aqua Collection paper pack. I used the negative die cut pieces to inlay into my gold frame. I did not want to cover the whole thing as I loved the dark navy, so I strategically adhered various pieces of green and aqua pieces throughout my card. I love this technique because I enjoy puzzles. I think the final results are so pretty and dramatic. It reminds me of stained glass. Imagine all of the beautiful color combinations that are possible!

For the sentiment, I first created the frame around the sentiment. The frame is die cut from one of the pieces that comes with the Geometric Deco Plate die. I reversed the order for some interest and glued the dark yellow frame on top of the gold frame, again offsetting it a tiny bit. Inside the sentiment frame, I glued three layers of the interior section together for dimension and popped it up on foam tape. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Art Deco Birthday Greetings stamp set in white embossing powder on the light gold cardstock. 

I made a mistake while heat embossing the sentiment. I applied my anti-static powder bag all over the gold foil and when it was time to wipe it away, the anti-static powder was stuck to the foil. I tried to rub it off with a little water and it did not work. I tried to rub it away with a little isopropyl alcohol, and it worked! But, it worked too well because the alcohol rubbed off the gold coating too! I do not think it is very noticeable since the gold was so light initially, but I wanted to share what happened in case it prevents any of you from making the same mistake. Until next time, happy crafting!
