Poppystamps 8.31.21.1

Hey there crafty friends. Candice here back on the blog with a simple coloful card project for all of you.  Today's card is using the Marzipan Alphabelt die set and several card stock strips fromt he Memory Box card stock packs. 

Poppystamps 8.31.21.2

This card is so bright, cheery and colorful it just makes me smile. I simply took sheets of the colored cardstock from the Memory Box Cardstock packs in Ocean Blue, Sunny Orange, Lush Green, Berry Red, Vibrant Violet and cut them into 1/2 by 4.50 inch strips then attached them in rainbow order onto an A2 size cardbase using some liquid adhesive.

Next I took my corner rounder punch and rounded each of the corners of the card base. This to me gave the card a more polished look. Next I die cut the Sentiment Happy Birthday from from white cardstock in my stash using the Marzipan alphabet die set. 

Poppystamps 8.31.21.5

Each letter was die cut twice and layered on top of one another using some liquid adhesive. I used the lines from the 1/2 inch cardstock strips to let line up the sentiment to ensure it was straight.

This simple card was very easy to make. With all of the left over stirps I can easily mass produce several cards in not much time at all. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time.....happy crafting.

Poppystamps 8.27.1

Hey there Craft friends, Candice here, back on the blog with another project share.                                                                                The new Geometric Deco Plate and Art Deco Birthday Greetings stamp set is not only perfect for making cards, but it is also great for tags. 

Poppystamps 8.27.21 2

To  create today's project, first you will need to die cut the Geometric Deco Plate from gold glitter cardstock. Next die cut a black tag from the Double Stitch Tag Frames die from some black cardstock.  Then adhere the Deco Plate die cut to the black tag with some liquid adhesive with a finetip nozzel. Art Glitter glue works best for adhereing tiny pieces of cardstock. Trim off any excess that hangs off of the tag. Paper piece the trimmed excess pieces to fill in any gaps with the tag to complete the design.

Next stamp the sentiment "Cheers" in Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Lastly punch a hole in the center of the tag add your gold cording and your all set. Cute Art Deco Tag that is perfect to add to any gift.

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here back on the blog to share another card using the new 3D wave embossing folder from Memory box and the new Whittles dies from Poppystamps. I am loving this embossing folder from Memory Box as it is perfect for making summer water themed cards. 

IMG_4111

The supplies to make today's card include the Whittle dolphin die, the Whittle Sealife Sentiments stamp set from Poppystamps  and the Wave 3D embossing folder from Memory.

Today's card uses the same technique of ink blending Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled glass, Prize Ribbon and Chipped Sapphire for the background as I did on yesterday's car. Then embossing the paper with the 3D embossing folder and sanding off the raised edges to create definition on the wave pattern.

To create the "killer whale" image I die cut the whittle dolphin once from black cardstock then again from white cardstock. trimmed off the bottom portion of the black dolphin and adhered it to the white dolphin die cut with some liquid adhesive. I then used my white jelly pen to give the eyes the white detail.

I then stamped the sentiment, "You're Fintastic" in Versafine black onyx ink. Then added some water splash detail with a fine tip sharpie marker. Lastly for an added touch on the card I added a strip of silver cardstock at the top of the card for some more dimension and detail. 

I hope you've liked today's cardshare and found inspiration. Until next time....happy crafting.

Just Keep Swimming

Hi there crafty friends, hope you all are enjoying your summer. Today I am on the blog sharing a cute summer theme card using the new wave 3D embossing folder from MemoryBox, the Whittle Fish Trio dies and sWhittle Sealife Sentiments stamp set from Poppystamps.

To begin you will need to color a 5.5 inch by 4.25 inch piece of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass, Prize Ribbon and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks. Be sure to blend the colors well with your Ink Blending tool.

Next emboss the inked cardstock with the wave 3D embossing folder. Remember to use the correct sandwich of plates for your specific die cut machine when embossing with 3D embossing folders.

Now take a sanding block or a piece of fine grit sandpaper and sand off some of the ink from the raised embossed areas on the cardstock. The white portion of cardstock will appear and provide a nice highlight.  The waves become so defined with this technique.

Next, die cut the fish from the trio fish die 3 times from white cardstock. The trio fish can all be cut with one pass with your die cutting machine. Then colored each of your fish with your favorite color medium. I am using Copic Markers in Y17, G23, B32 and R83.

Then stamp the“Just Keep Swimming” sentiment from the Whitle Sealife Sentiments stamp set onto a white die cut circle with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Adhere the colored fish onto the circle cardstock piece with liquid adhesive. 

Lastly die cut s stitched circle frame from grey cardstock using the  Poppystamps Double Stitch Cirle Frames die and adhere the circle frame to the white circle with some liquid adhesive. Then pop the entire circle die cut image onto the embossed wave background with foam tape. Adhere your card front to an  A2  size card base and you are done.
