Big Hedgehog

Hi there crafty friends, hope you are all having a good week. Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Have you started on your Valentine's Day cards? If  not, today's project share may be the perfect inspiration to get you in the craft room to make a card or two. 

IMG_3098

To create this card, I began with creating my background image. I stenciled red hearts onto a piece of 5 x 7 inch white cardstock with the Memory Box Drifting Hearts Stencil and some Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.

Next I cut the stenciled background with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die. Then adhered both the frame and the inside piece to a 4.25 x 5.5 top folding black note card with some liquid adhesive.

Then I die cut the Big Hedgehog Left and Big Hedgehog Right images from both a kraft and dark chocolate colored cardstock. I removed the hedgehog's main from the kraft die cut piece by fussy cutting the image with my paper snips. Then adhered the fussy cut kraft image onto the dark chocolate image with some liquid adhesive. 

Next I die cut a large heart image from some vellum cardstock, then adhered the heart and both paper pieced hedgehogs onto the stenciled heart background with some foam tape. Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock with some white embossing powder. I then attached the sentiment strip to card with some foam tape.

And there you have it, your card is done! I hope you enjoyed today's project share and found inspiration to make your own Valentine's Day cards. Until next time, happy crafting!

Challenge Reminder
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3081

Hi Everyone! Candice on the blog today to remind you of our monthly blog challenge. On the first of the month, a new Poppystamps Challenge is announced with a central theme. Each Wednesday throughout the month, members of the design team will provide samples of inspiration, for you to play along for a chance to win a prize.

2021-01

This month's central theme is Monochrome. Monochrome is defined as a project created in shades of black and white or in varying tones of one color.  To participate in this month's challenge keep it simple by creating in shades of black white and grey or in ombre shades of any color you like.   You can choose any occasion or event - all types of projects welcome including but not limited to cards, page layouts, tags, gifts, home decor and more!   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

For my challenge project, I created a very simple black and white monochrome card using scraps of black and white cardstock from my stash along with the Memory Box stamp set Peony Garden Corner. To begin, I randomly stamped the leaf cluster image onto a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 inch of white cardstock in onyx black versafine ink to create by own patterned paper.

For added interest, I placed small black dots in between the leaf images of the pattern using a black Sharpie marker.

Next I cut 4 strips of black cardstock into the varying sizes of 1 inch, 1/2 inch, .25 inch and .75 inch and adhered them to a 4.5 x 3.25 inch of white cardstock where I first cut and adhered the stitch rectangle border to the white cardstock piece. 

Then I stamped the sentiment hello from the stamp set on the 4.5 x 3.25 inch piece of cardstock and adhered it the leaf image stamped background with some 3M form tape.  Lastly I stamped a portion of the Peony Garden Border image onto a piece of scrap white cardstock with Versafine onyx black ink using my Misti Stamping too.

Then I die cut the single floral image and leaf with a medium circle die from my stash. I adhered the flower image to my card with some 3M form tape for added dimension. To finish the card I added a few crystal clear Nuvo Drops.

Noel
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3065

Hi there crafty friends! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday. Today I am coming on the blog to share another holiday card.  Yes, I know Christmas has past, but some of you may still be looking to send out your 2020 holiday cards, so here is another sample of quick and easy cards you can send out to family friends. 

Today's card is using the Festive Noel die along with the Christmas Quotes stamp and die set.

IMG_3053

To get started, I first die cut my background panel from a sheet of 6x6 patterned paper from the Memory Box Garland paper pad using the double stitched rectangle frame die. Next I adhered both the frame and the rectangle patterned pieces together to my green cardstock card base with some tape runner adhesive.  

Then I die cut the Noel sentiment  twice from the Festive Noel die. I  die cut the sentiment and frame cnce from a scrap piece of gold foil cardstock, then again from a scrap piece of red glitter cardstock. Next I paper pieced the glittered letters of Noel into the gold foiled framed sentiment using some clear tape to on the back of the sentiment to hold both the frame and die cut letters together. I attached the combined foiled and glittered sentiment to the center of my card with some foam tape. 

IMG_3056

Next I stamp the coordinating sentiment "Christmas is in the air" onto a strip of black cardstock with some Versamark ink. I then sprinkled fine detailed white embossing powder from Hero Arts and heat set the sentiment with my heat gun. Then I die cut the sentiment strip with the coordinating banner die using my Gemini Junior die cutting machine. Lastly I adhered the sentiment strip to the card with some foam tape.

And there you have it! Another clean and simple, yet elegant christmas card the comes together in minutes. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. Until next time.... happy crafting!

Merry Christmas
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3043

Hey there crafty friends, Candice here on the blog to share with you a quick and easy Christmas card that can easily be mass produced. Today's card features the Snowy Merry Christmas die and the Garland pattern paper from Memory Box. 

With just 4 more days till Christmas, if you're needing a quick and easy card to make and get into the mail or to accompany a handmade gift; today's card share is the perfect project for you. To get started, you will need to cut the Poppystamps Snowy Merry Christmas die once from green cardstock and twice from red cardstock. If you want even more dimension, you can cut the sentiment from the red cardstock three times instead of twice.

IMG_3035

Next adhere the red sentiment pieces together one on top of each other with some liquid adhesive. Then with the green sentiment, adhere this piece onto the red sentiment slightly ajar so that you create a red shadow background to the sentiment. With a snow marker add the liquid snow to the top of the "Merry" portion of the sentiment then use you heat gun to make the white liquid puff up to a snowy dimension. 

IMG_3032

With your Double Stitch Rectangle Frame die, cut a sheet of pattern paper from the Garland 6x6 Paper pad to use as your background for the card. Then adhere the patterned paper and coordinating frame together onto your cardbase with some liquid adhesive. 

Next cut a strip of red glitter cardstock to 4.25 x 2.25 and adhere it to the center of the patterned paper. Then cut a strip of gold cardstock to 4.25 x 2 and adhere the glitter cardstock with liquid adhesive. Then finally cut a piece of cream cardstock to 4.25 x 1.75 and adhere this piece on top of the gold cardstock with liquid adhesive. Trim off any excess cardstock from the edges of the card. 

IMG_3039

This card is absolutely stunning and has a ton of dimension. You will enjoy creating this quick and easy card for your friends and family. I hope you have enjoyed today's quick card share and found inspiration. Until next time.... happy crafting.

Challenge Reminder - Anything BUT a card
by Candice Crawford

IMG_2877

Hello Friends! It is Candice here today to remind you about our monthly challenge. This month the challenge is to create Anything But a card. Next to making cards, my next favorite project to make are gift tags.  For this month's challenge I am sharing with you a Christmas tag that is clean and simple and easy to mass produce. I hope you get a chance to join us in the challenge as you might just be the lucky winner! 

2020-12

Want to play? 

The rules are simple - just create a project following this month's theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!

To create this tag, I started by die cutting the Double Stitch Tag Frame base from a sheet of 6x6 pattern paper from the Christmas Plaid paper pad.  This die cuts out both a tag and a frame. I simply paper piece the tag and coordinating frame back together as one piece on to a sheet of white cardstock and fussy cut the tag and punch a hole in the center with a handle held hole punch.

Next I cut the Stained Glass Snowflake Background from a piece of Red Glitter Cardstock and the coordinating Stained Glass Snowflake from a piece of Gold Metalic Paper. I then adhered the Framed snowflake on top of the glittered snowflake piece. These two dies can be used both separately and together to create stunning snowflake images for your holiday projects.

Next I stamped the Merry and Bright Sentiment from the new Christmas Quotes stamp set with Versamark ink onto a scrap piece of black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and my heat gun. I die cut the sentiment strip with the coordinating die that comes along with the stamp set.

To assemble the tag, I adhered the layered snowflake onto the tag base with some foam tape. Then added the sentiment strip on top of the layered snowflake also with some foam tape. To finish the tag I added some red satin ribbon to the top of the tag with a piece of black and white bakers twine. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration.
