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.

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!

Quick & Easy Stenciled Card
by Sue McRae

20210123_102709c

Happy Monday morning! Sue here with an easy card that you can make very quickly using a stencil. I know sometimes we all need a card at the last minute and I find stencils can help create a card in a few minutes.

20210123_102730c

Today I’m using the Bright Blossoms Stencil on a square white card panel and inking it up with Distress Inks. Since the floral design is smaller in scale I used my tiniest blender brushes or you could use finger daubers to apply the inks.

20210121_133008c

I used six colours on my design but you can certainly use less which would save even more time. I only used one colour for the leaves but applied more ink in certain areas to create depth. You may be wondering why Seedless Preserves is shown in the pic above, considering my flowers are blue and yellow. I added it to the very tip of the petals to make them really dark, darker than the blue allowed. This could have also been achieved with black or a very dark brown.

With the stenciling done, I stamped part of the sentiment in black ink on the panel and die cut the Luscious Script Wishes from white and black. To keep everything simple I didn’t use any foam tape, instead keeping everything flat. I finished with a few gems for the flower centres.

That’s it! Stenciled card complete! I hope you remember to use your stencils to create a quick and easy card! Have a great crafty week!

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. 

IMG_3074

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. 

IMG_3073

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.

You're Pandastic
by Sue McRae

20210103_152333c

Happy New Year crafters! Sue here with my first post of 2021. Today I have a colourful and cute card to start off your week.

I started by taking alcohol inks and making a background that I used to die cut the Confetti Heart Plate from. I adhered the panel to my card base and stamped the hugs sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set inside some of the hearts and added a few XO’s as well.

20210103_145829c

I die cut the panda from pearl card stock and coloured in the black sections with a marker. And of course I had to add googly eyes!

The Stitched Envelope is such a handy little die, perfect for adding visual interest to a card and great for having things like flowers, leaves or any of the Whittle Critters pop out of.

20210103_152439c

The sentiment was white heat embossed and added to the front of the envelope and I added a few sequins for a little sparkle.

20210103_152401c

You could easily make this a Valentine’s Day card since heart dies and stamps can be used all year long to show someone how much you care!

Wishing you a wonderful crafty week!

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!

Christmas Porch Easel Card
by Sue McRae

20201206_083516c

Hello everyone! Only a few days left until Christmas! I hope you have all your shopping done and cookies baked!

I’m stopping in with my last card for 2020 and final Christmas card with the Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Set.

20201206_083138c

My first decision was colour palette and decided on turquoise and red, one of my favorite colour combos.

20201206_082856c

This card is easy to put together, it’s just a matter of die cutting all the pieces in your chosen colours.

Once I adhered all the house pieces I decided to add a couple of large trees from the Evergreen Trio on either side of the door. I have three layers of white cardstock and the top layer is silver glitter cardstock. This gives the trees some thickness and make them stand out from the porch front.

20201206_082423c

The snow on the roof is white glitter cardstock and the greenery hanging on the front door is from the very tip of the large Holiday Mistletoe die.

20201206_082357c

For the inside of the card I have two sentiments. The white circle sentiment was heat embossed in silver and I tripled up the Holly Merry Christmas for some added dimension.

20201206_082718c

Thank you so much for joining me today and I thank you for following along with all my posts this past year. I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and all the best for a great 2021!
