Challenge Reminder: Think Pink

20200928_154923c

Hi everyone, Sue here with a reminder about the monthly challenge going on at Poppystamps. This month the theme is Think Pink which also coincides with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Think about pulling out different shades of pink cardstock or ink, paints or alcohol inks. Whatever you can think of.

October 2020

I made a shaker card using the Graceful Heart Frame and some inlaid die cutting.

20200928_154914-c

The frame was card from red cardstock (a colour that looks great with pink), 3 shades of pink cardstock and just for a bit a contrast, some yellow cardstock. I did all the inlay first and then stamped the sentiment before working on the shaker part. I used a variety of shaker elements in clear, white and iridescent since the card had so much colour going on.

Roses and Butterflies
by Tina Wilstrup

Hello everyone! For today's card I've played with a couple of shimmery watercolor pigment powders and some Memory Box products.
Watermark1.597862898961E12

I first white heat embossed the flowers on watercolor cardstock.
Watermark1.597862898961E12

I carefully dabbed the colors on and spritzed with water. With a paper towel I dried off the edges and any spots that were too dark, but I didn't overdo the use of water because I feel the powders truly shine when the pigment is allowed to do it's own thing.

After it was completely dry I buffed off the color that was on top of the embossing powder.
Watermark1.597862898961E12

I cut a piece of vellum to size and dry embossed it. I white heat embossed the sentiment on the same color cardstock I used for base. I first adhered the flower and sentiment to the vellum which allowed for glue on the back of the vellum. Here I'm trying to show you the shimmery galaxy like flowers.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Stay safe and crafty.

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.

DSCN0186c

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.

DSCN0195c

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!

DSCN0182c

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.

Thanks for visiting with me today and happy crafting!

Multiple flower cards
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.595446684499E12

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.
IMG_20200721_221955

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.
IMG_20200721_221955

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.
IMG_20200721_221955

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.
IMG_20200721_221955

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.
IMG_20200721_221955

So there you have it. 5 quick cards for different occasions that are nice to have in your stash.

See you next time
