Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz

Welcome to another day of our Garden Variety Blog Blitz! Hope you’ve been enjoying all the amazing projects created by the design team!

I’m showcasing the Flora Bloom Solid Set which includes 5 dies. I only used the 2nd largest die on my card today. I die cut the bloom from white card stock, placed the new Whittle Spinner Background Die on top of the die cut and sent it back through my die cutting machine so it could add the swirly cut line design into the flower. I really love how this looks.

Next I took Distress Inks to add colour to the flower. I spritzed the flower with Perfect Pearls for some added shimmer and added gems to the flower centre.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from the new Garden Folly paper pack and adhered it to my card base and stamped my sentiment. I added a frame from white card stock using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames set, added my flower and tucked in the new Adriana Small Curve Border behind it. I finished off with a butterfly from the Intricate Cut Butterflies set.

Blog Blitz Spring Giveaway
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0027 2

Hello, my Poppy friends! How are you all doing? Staying well and safe I pray! Nancy here, and bringing some joy your way with our Spring Blog Blitz and giveaway! I'm showcasing a new die called, Adriana Tall Curved Border. Let's take a look...

DSC_0024

This lovely border die is as long as your A2 card, and can be used as an edge, but I'm going to show you something a bit different. I die cut it twice, and turned the pieces toward each other. You'll notice I cut the bottom leaves off the two die cuts. Read on to see why.

DSC_0014_wm

I gave my card the look of an arbor above a fence. Keeping with the spring theme, I kept the colors soft and pastel. And the bottom leaves just reach the bottom of the fence. The sentiment in the center is smoky blue rather than black, adding to the softness.

DSC_0025

The leaves are first wet with my paintbrush before adding color. I love how deeply impressed the leaves are, allowing the color to puddle a bit in the crevices.

Detailing my card with a few more sprigs, some twine and some of the new glitter glue, and my cheery spring card is ready to send!

Stencil techniques
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.583705980697E12

Hello everyone! Spring is getting closer by the minute and I'm loving the new stencils from the spring release, so once I got started I just couldn't stop myself. I absolutely LOVE stencils, they can be used in so many different ways and today I'm sharing a couple of different techniques. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

Let's start easy, however a bit untraditionally. Here I'm using the Chrysanthemum stencil with just one ink on patterned paper. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

The Whittle cutie rabbit is also cut from patterned paper, and to add a little sparkle I also cut it from glitter paper and offset it behind the patterned paper.

Watermark1.583706177934E12

For the next card I switched to white cardstock and 5 colors of ink with the Romantic Blooms stencil.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I first masked off the leaves. Then, starting from the centre of the flower, using a soft yellow, light and dark pink to create depth. I did the same for the leaves while masking off the flowers. I'm not fancy so I simply use Post It's that I tear to fit the needed area.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I just love the soft blended look of this, so all I did was add a sentiment courtesy of Birch Press Designs. And I love the tiny cuts in these label sets that allow for a small ribbon to go through. So romantic. I backed the panel and label with pink glitter paper. Just look at all that sparkle. LOVE! 

Watermark1.583706033425E12

This card features my favorite stencil technique. It's really easy to do and if you use a glitter embossing powder, like I did here, all you really need to add is a sentiment. I cut the Friend folksy script die from black cardstock 3 times and layered it. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Birch Press Designs.
Watermark1.583706033425E12

I'm using the Bright Blossoms stencil. I go over the stencil with a nice thick coat of texture paste. Once the stencil is removed (and cleaned) I add my embossing powder. You then want to set it aside and let it dry completely before heat setting it. Depending on the amount of glitter in your powder you may want to let it dry before removing any excess powder as well. You'll be left with a beautiful textured, and in my case very glittery, impression of your stencil. 

Watermark1.583706133685E12

On this card I'm using the gorgeous Birch Press Designs Midnight Mandala stencil with texture paste and watercolor powders.

IMG_20200308_131318

I recommend spraying your stencil with temporary adhesive. And even then I still get a little bleeding. But I love the shiny textured look.
IMG_20200308_134618
I die cut the border and hugs heart from white cardstock and the heart from glitter paper as well. The white heart was used to back the glitter paper and then I popped it up with craft foam for dimension.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

For my final card I'm using the Memory Box Leafy Jumble stencil for partial stenciling with gold glimmer paste on patterned paper.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I wanted to use a dark paper and white cardstock for die cutting, and I felt this whimsical glittery textured surface would just break the pattern.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I cut out the wheelbarrow 3 times and layered them for sturdiness before popping it up with craft foam. I cut 2 branches of the floral cluster and placed them on the patterned paper. I also cut out the tiny flowers from soft pink and orange glitter paper and added them to the branches. I finished off the flowers with a drop of Fairy Sugar in matching colors. Sentiment label is also popped up.

Watermark1.583705980697E12

So there you have them. Thank you for sticking around 'til the end, I really hope I've inspired you. Let me know which technique is your favorite and if there's a technique you'd like me to give more details to in the future. Have a great day, and happy crafting!

Garden Rabbit
by Marybeth Lopez

 

C050D6DE-0008-4E63-9D44-42841E2948C0

Hello and happy March to you all! Marybeth here today with a sweet Whittle Cutie Rabbit, from Poppystamps . This was a really easy card to make because the background  was basically already created because I used the : Cottage Meadow patterned paper . I cut it down to 5 1/4 by 4 then added foam to the back.

49A73CED-2DCD-4C24-ABBA-6DFD5A5D3ACA

I wanted to shade my rabbit but you could just use colored card stock if you wanted to. The first one was a little darker than I wanted so I made a second one just a bit lighter. I glued three rabbits together so the rabbit would be prominent on the card.

7F023483-817A-4DA7-9D7C-06349FA3C932

I cut some grass using the Poppystamps Hill and Valley Grass Border, then shaded it in . I cut it down to the same size as the panel .

AF67B339-401A-4D7A-85F6-47ABF1B8D9AB

I love this Point Picket Double Gate its two pieces and it fits the panel perfectly!!!! Love that ! I also added two layers to the Grosgrain Bow.

E13CDA84-3BEF-4211-990A-720BE4965D55_1_201_a

I added some foam ( pictured above) to the grass, because it was the perfect size but you can cut your own, if you want. I wanted the grass raised so it looks like the rabbit is sitting ing the grass with flowers.

5F3EC1A0-7412-4F66-B6AD-D8FFC1947213

 

The sentiment is from Birch Press Design : Blooming Spring.

67D4D0FC-D041-4D62-BA05-66CDCBCDEA94_1_201_a

TIP :I recommend stamping your sentiment before adding the foam to the back, it was a little thick in the MISTI because I forgot to take out the foam

Thank you so much for the visit today ! Poppystamps has so many new products in the new Spring line, this is just a tiny sampling of all the amazing new goodies. Happy Shopping!
