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.

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.

Butterfly Easel Card
by Sue McRae

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.

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.

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.

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

Summer birthday
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.593510977832E12

Hello everyone! Can you believe it's July? The last 4 months feel more like years. Right? It's officially summer though and we can at least enjoy the wonder of flowers. So today I have a dry embossed, watercolored card for you.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I started by applying ink to the inside of the embossing folder. I used Distress ink, since they're easy to clean. I spritzed a bit of water, wiped off the flower part as best I could, and laid the watercolor cardstock on top. I then ran it through my die cutting machine. Make sure you follow directions for your machine, these are thick embossing folders.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I first heat set the ink with my heat tool and then applied a dark yellow ink - pad directly to paper - over the sunflower. Notice that I got some yellow into the blue background. I'll cover that later. With a waterbrush I carried some of the ink to the rest of the petals. I again made sure it was completely dry before lightly running over my embossing ink. I did get more ink on than planned, but I had just reinked my pad. So that's something to keep in mind. I added a clear  glittery embossing powder and heat set that. Then I used my finger to dab embossing ink to the middle of the flower and applied an embossing powder that's a mix of gold, silver and copper. Watermark1.593510977832E12

I then cut my scallopped frame and placed over the sunflower. Here I've already cut off a couple of corners but you can still see that it's quite off set. I adhered the flower and frame to a white cardbase.

I cut a couple of butterflies and a happy birthday sentiment from glitter cardstock. I absolutely love this teal color and it's the perfect contrast to the yellow flower.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I adhered the sentiment cuts and then played around with placing the butterflies strategically to cover my ink pad mistakes from earlier. I didn't cover all of them, but most.

So there you have my sparkly flower card, and in case you missed it the challenge theme this month is Glim and Glam - add some sparkle.

See you next time. In the meantime, happy crafting!
