Washi Leafy Garden Border
by Sue McRae

DSCN0193c

Happy Monday crafters! Today I’m using some of Poppystamps wide washi tape for my card design.

I started by taking some of the Cornelia Variegated Wide Washi Tape (this washi tape is available in 3 colours and two widths) and adhering it to white cardstock for die cutting.

I die cut the Leafy Garden Border from this and also from a piece of purple card stock.I wanted a shadow effect behind the washi layer so that it popped more from the background. I did this by gluing the washi piece slightly offset from the purple layer.

To continue with the purple theme, I die cut the Luscious Script Wishes from watercolour paper and applied a wash of Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, leaving the bottom of the die cut dark and lightening it as I worked up the die cut. Very quick and easy to do!

The birthday sentiment was white heat embossed on black cardstock and I die cut the butterfly from the Memory Box Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.

This was a quick card to put together thanks to the washi tape and am using it more and more in my card making, especially when I need a last minute card.

Multiple flower cards

Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.

IMG_20200721_221955

First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.

Garden Border and Butterflies
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-4

Good Morning Friends and Welcome Back! I am stopping by today with a fun birthday card to share with you all. Although I created a birthday card, this same card can be used for many different occasions by just chasing the sentiment. Let's get started, shall we?

SavingPNG

I started my card by ink blending Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade onto a piece of cardstock. I then ran the cardstock through my die cutting machine with the Leafy Garden Border Die. Don't you just love the detail this die creates. I also ink blended my card panel (background) with Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass.

Next, I ink blended Distress Oxide Ink in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet onto small squares of cardstock. I then ran them through my die cutting machine with the Intricate Cut Butterflies Die Set.

For my sentiment, I used the Birthday Blowout Stamp Set. I stamped Happy Birthday directly onto my Leafy Garden Border and then attached everything to my A2 card base. Lastly, I added a few sparkling clear jewels to finish my card.

Birthday Card Set

 Hello, I hope you are enjoying this month of July.

 I have an easy to make set of cards to share with you today using the Poppystamps : Friendship and Kindness clear stamp set.

You place the stamp once.... then move the panel up the same amount of grid squares each time.

B15127C2-1136-46F3-AA03-9A95B11E712E_1_201_a

I placed the two stamps in my MISTI and figured out how far I would need to move my panel up after each color. I moved my card base up about 6 grid marks each time . You place the stamp on your MISTI and never move it only move the card base and change to the color you want.

Above is how I layer my card.... card base, foam pad, then the top panel.

This  set of cards was so easy to create, once I figured out where I wanted to start out for this : Happy Birthday stamp . I had so much fun creating the first card I decided to make 4 more in different colors with matching card base. 

I hope you have a creative and blessed day.

Cottage Meadow Birthday Card
By Nancy Penir

DSC_0049

Hi! I have a card today made with some of the new Memory Box designer papers. This paper pack is called, Cottage Meadow, and is full of colorful, floral, double sided papers. I love it all! For my card I chose a print with white posies on an orange background. Here's how I made my card.

DSC_0033

I always need birthday cards, and decided on a shaker. The die set, Echo Blossoms, cuts 8 different sizes of the flower shape. I used the largest for my shaker.

DSC_0034

You've probably done this dozens of times, but I thought I'd show it anyway, just in case you're new to making a shaker. On the back side of the die cut, with the acetate in place, the foam tape is scored and placed around each petal, close to the opening. Takes a bit of time, but in this covid season, I seem to have plenty of time. My shaker elements are chosen for color and shape, and placed in the middle of the base card.

DSC_0036

I created a frame for the window by using the 2 largest blooms and taping them together before running through the machine.

DSC_0041_wm

Add a few die cuts and sequins to the front, and a sentiment, and my square card is done! I like to make my own envelopes for a square card (behind the card).

Hope you were inspired to use your printed papers for your next project. They come in handy when you need a quick card! Have a wonderful, and safe weekend!

Butterfly Easel Card
by Sue McRae

DSCN0204c

Welcome crafters to another Poppystamps post with Sue! I hope your summer has been going splendidly! We are having a heat wave in my neck of the woods and am grateful to have air conditioning!

Today I have an easel card for you using the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set. The easel card is really easy to put together and if you need some guidance Dave made a video showing you the steps to create an easel card. Watch the video here.

I die cut the base of the card from plum card stock. I then took the pretty butterfly patterned paper from the Springtime Bouquet Pad and adhered it to white cardstock to make it sturdier, as this will be the card front.

DSCN0231c

I die cut the butterfly panel with the Butterfly Symphony die and ran the die through my die cut machine once more with glitter cardstock so I could adhere the sparkly butterflies over the patterned butterflies on the panel. I really love all the layers of butterflies on this piece!

DSCN0255c

For the inside of the card I die cut a piece of pink cardstock.

For the sentiment I used the smallest Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame and die cut it from patterned paper and twice from white cardstock and adhered them together to make a thicker frame.

DSCN0245c

I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added it to the inside of the frame.

My final step was to add some iridescent sequins among the butterflies for a little sparkle and shine.

DSCN0264c

In the end I only used 2 of the 6 dies included in the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set so that you could see how to make this easel card using other Poppystamps products, not just the ones that come in the set.

DSCN0214c

This really is a versatile die that is great for many occasions all year long! I hope you include it in your crafty stash!

Thanks for stopping by today!
