Poppystamps 6.30.23.1.1

Hey there crafty friends!

Candice here, on the blog sharing another card using the new Gracious Floral stamp and coordinating die set from Memory box. This set features a large floral stamp and several all occasion sentiments along with coordinating dies for both the floral image and a few of the sentiments.

Poppystamps 6.30.23.2

Today's card is very clean and simple which is my favorite type of card to make.  To begin, I stamped the large floral image with Versmark ink onto a piece of Vellum cardstock and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder.  Next, I die cut the image using the coordinating die from the stamp and die set.

For the background I cut  several  1/4 inch strips of cardstock from white and three shades of pink cardstock and adhered them to my white A2 card base ensuring there was white strip in between each pink strip. Next, I  stamped the sentiment "Sending Smiles" in Versafine Black Onyx ink.

Lastly, I added some gold pearls onto the card for added glitz and glam to the card. I really enjoyed how this card came out. The new Gracious Floral stamp is absolutely gorgeous and great for all occssasion cards. I hope you too have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time. Happy stamping!!!

To color the floral image, you can purchase the layering stencil. I used serveral of my distress inks to color the floral image. Before coloring the image I stamped the floral in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

For the background I used my favorite Double Diamond Lattice plate, that I die cut from white cardstock and layered it onto my white A2 card base. The sentiment "Just Because" was also stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Thinking of You
by Candice

Hey crafty friends! Candice here, back on the blog with another card inspiration. 

Today, I am using the Brilliant Geraniums Flower Set that comes with 2 dies to complete a set of Geranium blooms. I am also using the recently released hot foiling set You are Amazing Poe Script Greetings set featuring the Thinking of You Sentiment and coordinating die. 

DFE15A96-6A5E-45D2-A24F-6D8D433BA03A

My card today is another clean and simple design that can be used for any occasion. I plan to use this card for a special friend when sending happy mail. I cut the leaves of the Brilliant Geranium set from some dark green card stock and the floral blooms from red card stock. from my stash. For added depth and dimension to your die cuts,  you can sponge on coordinating ink to the center of the diets. 

57A026E1-1B2D-4423-B690-4B5AE1BD7761

I foiled the Thinking of You sentiment with some gold foil and die cut the sentiment using the coordinating die from the set and adhered it to my white rectangle card layer with some foam tape. A few of the geraniums were adhered with liquid glue and two were popped up with foam tape. I used some gold pearls for the centers of each flower for a bit of glitz to the card.

The final card front layer was adhered to a red A2 card base, and there you have it. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found a bit of inspiration to make a few clean and simple cards using the Brilliant Geranium flower set along with the You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings foiling die set.

Hey there crafty friends, for those of you who are in the US, I hope you had a Happy Memorial Day! 

Candice here on the blog showcasing a clean and simple card today using the Freestyle Hello die along with the Basic Junk Journal set from Poppystamps. I just adore clean and simple die cut cards and I hope you do as well. When you need a quick and easy card, I feel the clean and simple design is the best card making method to choose. 

828B76F3-0FEE-4832-8AC1-A5C6BB7B60E4

Today's card features the mini envelope die form the Basic Junk Journal set that I cut four times from four shades of pink card stock from my stash. I assembled each envelope with liquid glue and attached a cute little heart to the envelope for some added dimension. The tiny heart comes from the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit.

The star of card is the Freestyle Hello sentiment die, where I cut the sentiment word from black cardstock and the shadow from vellum cardstock and adhered the two pieces together with liquid glue. Each of the mini envelopes were popped up onto my card with foam tape onto my white rectangle piece where I sponged on a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink for added dimension to the card.

I hope you have enjoyed today's clean and simple card and found some great inspiration. Until next time...Happy Crafting!

For a bit of inspiration for this month's challenge, I created a monochromatic birthday card using the Petite Blooms Flower set and the Birthday Wishes Moonlight Script die set.

E13D2AA5-27E8-4443-8183-62E94E09F313

The flowers for my card where cut from white card stock, which I layered three differnt ways to create a floral cluster.  to embellish my card, I used the Fairy Gemstones and a few rhinestones from my stash. 

91FA8D9D-E924-41B9-B9BA-3E8EBAA9CE30

The sentiment on the card was die cut from gold card stock and the shadow for the word was die cut from white cardstock. Some of the flowers were popped up with foam tape while others were gluded to my card front layer. The sentiment of course was popped up with foam tape.

This design is clean and simple, but packs a lot of punch. Although I made this into a birthday card, I can easily see how this card can be made for a wedding or anniversary.
