To inspire you to join us, I made a rainbow floral card featuring the Memory Box, All the Happiness stamp and Poppystamps, Embossed Love die. I love, love, love rainbows so this challenge was my cup of tea. Making this card was fairly simple, so let’s get to the details.

I started by stamping the largest floral stamp in the All the Happiness stamp set on an A2 card base in black ink. With the stamp still in my MISTI, I stamped and black, heat embossed the floral stamp again on a card front. I positioned the card front panel, that I trimmed to 5 x 3.75 inches, on top of the card base so the stamp matched up. I adhered the panel to the card base with foam tape for dimensions and added some black splatters.

On a piece of mixed media paper, I black, heat embossed the smaller floral cluster from the stamp set. I watercolored the image with the wet on wet technique with Karin brushmarkers. I added in extra depth and lines with colored pencils. Once the flowers were dry, I die cut them using the coordinating die. I also die cut two additional layers from scrap, white cardstock for added dimension and glued it to my card front. Finally, I added white gel pen details and gold nuvo drops to the center of the flower.

For the sentiment, I die cut it three times from white cardstock and once from black cardstock. On the top layer, I blended a rainbow gradient in Copic markers. The colors I used were: R37, R05, YR16, YR14, YR12, Y18, Y04, YG06, G03, BG13. I don’t have all the Copic markers so I worked with what I had and tried to create as seamless a blend as I could. Once I finished the rainbow blend, I topped the sentiment with crystal glaze for some extra pizazz and let it dry overnight. I am so happy how the sentiment turned out and will be using these colors for more Copic marker blends in the future.

Notecard Set
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0172

Hi and welcome! I am sharing a notecard set, something I like to keep on hand for gift giving.

DSC_0166_wm

I keep them simple, with touches of handmade goodness. Usually sets of 4 or 6, and always with matching envelopes. 

DSC_0165

The notecards are 3 1/2 x 5 (A1), and I fit them opened, into my Misti fitted with a bar so I can stamp them assemble line.

DSC_0180

I chose copics to color my blooms. Above are the colors I used. Soft and pastel. An easy night while watching TV. You could use any medium. I've done this with watercolors, pencils, or even foam daubers and ink.

My die cuts stand out against the floral blooms, but still flat enough to go through the mail.

A set of 4, tied with a ribbon, added to a basket of baked goods... might just give this to a new neighbor down the street.

So many stamps sets to choose from in the  Memory Box Open Studio store. The dies are Poppystamps, and the links below with take you to the item. 

Hope your weekend is full of crafty goodness!

Intricate Butterflies
by Sue McRae

20210410_080119c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a slimline card that is fairly quick to make when time is of the essence.

I started by die cutting the Leafy Vines Slim Plate from white cardstock and attaching it to my white card base. I like the simple elegance of tone-on-tone die cuts.

20210411_151646c

Next I took the Intricate Butterflies and die cut two sizes (there are 4 to choose from) from white cardstock and inked them with Distress Inks. The large butterfly was inked with a darker shade of the same hue as the smaller butterfly.

20210410_080550c

I sprayed the butterflies with shimmer spray and they sparkle so beautifully (the photo doesn't capture it)! Then I  layered them and I added a black gem to the body centre.

For contrast I decided to die cut the Brilliant Rings from black cardstock, added those to the card base with foam tape then adhered the butterflies to the rings. I really like how the colourful butterflies pop against the black!

20210410_080305c

I took two separate sentiments from the Birch Press Blooming Spring stamp set and used them for my card. The stamp for the top sentiment actually reads “sending you hugs this” but I didn’t ink up “this” and now the two sentiments “sending you hugs, happiness and joy” work well together.

20210410_080410c

I always enjoy making butterfly cards, I feel they work for many occasions and if you are ever stuck for a card design, repeating the same elements over is a great choice.

Wishing everyone a crafty week!

A Simple Hello
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello there friends of Poppystamps ! Marybeth Lopez  , here today sharing a simple, hello card to brighten anyones day. I did some ink blending on white cardstock then used the beautiful: Poppystamps Pinpoint Half Ring Plate. Oh how I love the subtle texture it gives to any panel. I will be using this one quite a bit.

Above you can see I started at the bottom on the panel and worked my way up. 

EF51CA2F-4C01-4F51-AB8C-621E7B420D2B_1_201_a

I used the Poppystamps :Hello Poe Script and die cut it out of memory box glitter paper, linked below.

I also added bits of glitter to the beautiful blooms from memory box called All the Happiness also linked below.

I will be honest , at first I had a different Design  for this card and then messed it up, so I needed something large to cover up my mistake, the  large bloom was just the ticket. I think it was a happy accident as I like this much better. I still think enough of the pretty panel shows nicely.

Below is a close up of the beautiful detail from the Pinpoint plate.

000DB665-1D48-46C9-80F1-11A0FF499B63_1_201_a

I didn't want to color the large bloom as I wanted the background  to shine , I do love uncolored images on cards.

08F15D8D-1A69-4682-A615-BB0537B7085E

I hope you like my happy mistake today. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, I will be back soon with another card. 

Take care.

Wishes and Washi by Nancy Penir

DSC_0171

Well hello and welcome. Nancy here, and I'm sharing a card made with Poppystamps' Diamond Sentiments stamp and die set.

I have the shop link below, and I think you'll find plenty of sentiments included in the set to fit many occasions. Here's an easy way to use the set. 

DSC_0169_wm

Memory Box's Open Studio has several extra wide Washi tapes that are perfect for creating quick and easy backgrounds. This luscious floral instantly and easily covers a card base. I added a layer of yellow vellum (Hobby Lobby), allowing my die cut to take center stage on the card.

DSC_0163

The stamp is a large one, nearly covering an A2 sized panel. I decided to give it bling, and gold embossed the image, before cutting it out.

DSC_0170

Next, to color and add the sentiment. So many sentiments included with this set! This card could be for a birthday, or wedding, etc. The leaves are colored with Arteza Ink pens. I haven't used them in a while, and I'm very happy with the bright and bold colors they produce! Add a sentiment (dark green embossed), pop up the die cut, and add a few gems, and done!

DSC_0179_wm

Have you tried the wide washi tapes? So versatile, I used one for the lining of my handmade envelope. Makes a greeting extra special to have a matching envelope.

DSC_0160_wm

I make many of my own envelopes, using paper rather than cardstock, and lining with the wide washi.

Hope you'll try using washi for your next projects. Be sure to check all the new products in the Poppystamps and Memory Box

(Open Studio) stores!

Have a wonderful weekend, hope it's extra crafty!

Challenge Reminder: SHAKE IT UP!
by Patty Tanúz

Hola amigas!!!!

PSC#78 Shake It Up! Do you like to make a little noise?  Maybe you like to sparkle and shine?!  This month you can do both by adding a shaker to your projects.  A shaker is a small window or opening and items – usually sequins – contained inside the window that make you want to shake the card.  You can add beads, sequins, wood veneer whatever you like in the shaker compartment.  So shake it up!!  All types of projects welcome!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

This is my magic and shine proposal!!! 

IMG_0348

With beautiful die cuts, beautiful colors, wonderful elements, what more can I ask from life? jijiji

IMG_0350

Maybe I should dance with  several shakes, very happily and say the magic word: BELIEVE!!!! :)

IMG_0351

My card in shaking, sounds like some happy "maracas" jijiji I love it!!!

Participate with us! Kisses!!!
