Spread your wings and fly

Hello everyone! All good things must come to an end and today I'm sharing my last card for Poppystamps as I chose to step down from the design team due to personal reasons. Butterflies to me symbolise change and growth, so it absolutely fits just right. It wasn't until after I made this card that I thought of the funny coincidence, that I used the Beautiful butterflies sidekick frame on my first card for Poppystamps as well. You can check it out here

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.

The butterfly frame I covered with the coordinating stencil and lightly ink blended a bit of Distress ink over the butterflies. As I assembled the card I didn't like the white frame, so I ended up ink blending the whole frame.

I layered the 3 frames only adding glue to the frames, not stems, flowers or butterflies. I thought it would make it look more airy. I then stamped a sentiment and cut out butterflies from glitter cardstock with the coordinating (and included) butterfly die.

I adhered them with a dot of glue just to the centre of the butterflies for a bit of dimension. Just look at that sparkle.

That's it from me guys, it's time for me to spread my wings and fly. I enjoyed creating with these wonderful dies and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. I'll still be making cards so do stop by my blog or Instagram, I'd sure love to see you!

Roses and Butterflies

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

I first white heat embossed the flowers on watercolor cardstock.

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.

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.

Heartfelt Hugs

Hello Friends!

Thank you so much for dropping by the Poppystamps blog today! I have got something a little new and different for me, a stamped and watercolored image using the pretty Peony Garden Corner from Memory Box Open Studio. I just LOVE using die cuts on everything, and making paper art! But when I opened my Design Team package from our Poppystamps guru, Dave, I just wanted to try this technique. Even though I didn't exactly get the results I hoped for, I loved doing it! I am also going to keep on practicing too, which is what I tell every person who tells me they just can't make their projects "look just right." Take a look.

I started out by cutting the Wrapped Stitch Rectangle out of Memory Box Open Studio Watercolor Paper. I love the wonky edges.

I stamped the images from the Peony Garden Corner on the watercolor paper, aligning things just the way I wanted with my MISTI. Once the ink was dry, I painted the peonies with some inexpensive watercolor paint.

I was going for a messy, artistic look, where some of the color bleeds out of the images. I don't think I went nearly "messy" enough! I then added a few colorful paint splatters with my paintbrush too. I used a lot of water first, then added drops of paint, then added more paint once the layers and colors were dry. So my finished peonies now have a really chalky and thick look and feel to them. What will you create with this beautiful Peony Garden Corner set?

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.

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!

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.
