Christmas In July Poinsetta
by Candice Crawford

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a good week. I am back on the blog today to share with you another Christmas in July project. This project is a holiday card featuring the Blooming Poinsettia and the Merry Christmas Flourish dies. 

To get started on today's cards, you will need to first die cut your card front panel from a piece of white card stock. I like to make my card front panels with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die set. Next you will cut two pieces of patterned paper from the Dashing Holiday 6x6 paper pad into 2 inches by 4.75 inches.  I then adhere these two panels to the center of the white card front frame. I also added an .25 inch strip of silver glitter paper to cover the seam between the two patterned papers.

Next you can die cut your poinsettia and the Merry Christmas sentiment from white card stock. I die cut the flourish sentiment 3 times and trimmed off the flourish portion. I adhered all three layers of the sentiment together with liquid adhesive.

I assembled the poinsettia with both liquid and 3M foam tape. I added some chunky glitter to the edge of the poinsettia to give his shimmer and sparkle.

To assemble your card, simply add the poinsettia and the layered sentiment to the card base with some liquid glue.

Christmas In July
by Candice Crawford

Hi Everyone!

Candice here, showcasing a Christmas in July project to help inspire you to jumpstart your Christmas crafting. Today, I am using the Holiday Joy layered tag set that was released last fall. I am also using my Double Stitch Tag Frames dies set for the base of my tags. 

To get started you will first need die cut the tag base from a piece of patterned paper, I am using a sheet of red plaid from the Memory Box Dashing Holiday 6 x6 paper. Although this paper pad is no longer available; any holiday patterned paper will be sufficient.

Next you will need to reassemble the tag and tag frame together onto a white piece of card stock. After assembling the tag, take a single whole punch and create a whole at the top of the tag for your ribbon. 

Now you will need to create the focal point sentiment. Die cut the word "joy" from a piece of glitter white card stock. Next, die cut the joy outline from as piece of grey card stock and adhere the joy sentiment onto the outlined piece with some liquid glue.

Next, pop up the joy layered sentiment onto the tag with some 3M foam adhesive. Finally tie on your white ribbon to the tag and you're done.

Poppy Stamps July Challenge with Signature

Hi Everyone, 

Candice here reminding you there is still time to play along with the Design Team and I for this month's challenge.                        For the month of July we are creating projects that are themed Glim and Glam. For a bit of inspiration to get you started crafting, I am sharing with you a clean and simple card I created that glitters and shimmers. 

For my card I am using the new Flora Blooms die for the floral focal point on the card along with the Greeting Basics stamp set for my sentiment. To get started you will need to die cut both the large and small flower petals from  3 sheets of pastel glitter card stock. I am using the pastel glitter paper from Memory Box.

Next you will need to die cut the background panel for the card using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die and a sheet of blue patterned paper from the Memory Box Springtime Bouquet 6x6 paper pad. 

To assemble your card, you will layer the background frame and center cut piece onto your A2 card base using some liquid adhesive. Then you will add your floral petals to the card, arranging them so that some florals are layered on top of one another  and popped up with foam tape.

Lastly, you can stamp the "Thank You" sentiment from the Greeting Basics stamp set and die cut the image with the coordinating labels die from the Colwell Label die set.  Adhere your sentiment to your card with some 3M foam tape. 

Your card is done. I hope your found inspiration from today's project and will join in on the Blog challenge fun.

Happy Birthday Stitched Tag
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 6

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here showcasing a cute and easy card using the new Happy Birthday Stitched Tag set. This two piece set that comes with a stitched tag and a happy birthday sentiment. This set can be used to make tags or embellish a card.  

Poppystamps 6.29.2

To make this card, you will need to die cut the tag twice from some patterned paper. I am using the Memory Box Springtime Bouquet Stripes and Dots paper. Next take the sentiment die and cut the Happy Birthday phrase three times from white card stock. You will want to die cut the sentiment multiple times so that it has some depth and dimension on your card. Adhere your three layers of sentiments using some liquid glue. Next glue your sentiment to one of the die cut tags. 

Poppystamps 6.29.4

Now using some scrap card stock from your stash die cut three butterflies in various sizes and pastel colors using the Intricate Cut Butterflies die. Adhere your your butterflies to both tags with foam tape. 

Poppystamps 6.29.3

With a sheet of 6x6 patterned paper from the Memory Box Springtime Bouquet paper pad, die cut your card front using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die. The die will cut both a frame and the inside portion of the frame. I reassembled both pieces back together onto an A2 size card base. Finally adhere your decorated tags to the card front with some foam tape.

Poppystamps 6.29.1

There you have it! A cute, simple and stunning card in minutes. Create a second tag to place onto a gift or gift bag and you will have an awesome presentation for wishing some a special Happy Birthday. I hope you have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!

Next grab your Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon and Dusty Concord. Sponge these inks onto a piece of white cardstock using an ink blending tool, starting with Wild Honey. Next sponge on the Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide Ink making sure to smooth the transition of colors so there are no harsh lines between the two colors. Lastly, sponge on the Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Ink, ensuring a smooth transition blend with the Ripe Persimmon ink.

Now die cut the inked panel with the Stitch Rectangle Frames die. I use this die to create a stitched rectangle border on my cards. Next Reassemble the frame and center panel together. I apply a few pieces of scotch tape to the back of the paper when reassembling. Using a heat gun, dry your inked background panel. This should only take a few seconds to do.

Now rotate your panel 90 degrees and add the Leafy Garden Border to the bottom edge using some liquid glue. Next stamp the sentiment from the Memory Box Peony Garden Corner stamp set with Versamark ink. Apply white fine detail embossing power to the stamped sentiment and heat set it with your heat gun. Finally adhere your card front onto an A2 size card base.
