Valentine Tag Cards
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0122_wm

Valentine Poppy Greetings friends! I have a post full of Love today, using some of the latest Poppystamps release. Better have a cuppa with you, I just couldn't stop once I got started! Come take a look.

DSC_0074

First, created my pattern Cardstock with Memory Box's new Drifting Hearts Stencil. A few with Distress Ink,

and a few with embossing paste.

DSC_0078

To add color, I mixed a few drops of re-inker to my Mat Gel Medium. Also I lightly sprayed the back of the stencil with Pixie Spray. It's slightly sticky and holds the stencil in place and prevents the gel from spreading beyond the holes.

DSC_0082

When the mat gel was dry, I cut out my tags. The Stitched Tunnel Tags has several sizes to choose from. I used the largest and also the 3rd largest. This is a photo of all the pieces I used on my 4 tags. 

DSC_0097_wm

The 3 layers of tags aren't glued together, just free to move. this one has some Valentine Washi on the bottom.

DSC_0094_wm

All tags have a 3rd piece of white card stock cut from the largest tag die, so I can write my message as I would

inside a card. 

DSC_0098_wm

The red tag on this one is stamped with one of the images from Valentine's Fun, one of Poppy's new stamp sets.

DSC_0102_wm

This tag was stamped with Poppy's Picnic Plaid. 

DSC_0103_wm

All have matching envelopes and glitter heart seals. To create the address label, I die cut smaller tag, turned it, and cut the bottom again for a mask, then stenciled on the hearts. Also added a bit of red shadow around the mask. I ran the die cut heart through my Xyron sticker maker, creating a seal for the back flap.

The tag/card measures 3 x 5 1/4" and fits perfectly in an A2 envelope.

Hope you're inspired to try a tag/card. It's the perfect Valentine for those special people in your life!

Sending Hugs and Kisses
by Marybeth Lopez

D9610235-0560-47FC-9892-80E447548414_1_201_a

Hello and Happy Weekend to you all! Marybeth here today with a card sending Hugs and Kisses ( this will go to on of my granddaughters ) I used the new Poppystamps Floral Lace Heart Split Border craft die along with Poppystamps  Valentine's Fun clear stamp.

A5C62F56-9C98-4452-99B7-F42D3BED13CE_1_201_a

I blended ink just behind the heart, I kinda made a mask with the negative of this die , as you can see on the right side of the heart. When taken away, the only blended ink will be under the delicate heart, simply done with out making a mask. On the left side you don't have to worry because it will be covered up with the Floral Lace Heart Split Border

32F6BBF9-07A4-43A2-AD54-23BEF8F0B8B4_1_201_a

See above, when the negative of the die is taken away all you see is the original watercolored panel.

B25D731C-091E-4E59-A25C-5A98B0BD5D43_1_201_a

I love this 3D Embossing Folder from memory box called :Heart Bouquet EF1006 Heart Bouquet  . It's so easy to use ... place envelope in folder on top of one plate and run it through your die machine.

3235755F-63E1-42E3-8A2B-2D33088EC463_1_201_a

After I was almost done with my card I decided to add two more layers to the top of my card, for more dimension.

D1ED1FF1-3CCA-408C-A3C9-CC7F7F02E725_1_201_a

You cant really see in the photo but I also went over the lacy part of the heart and used a shimmer pen.

2BCA5E45-51B8-48A9-A287-AD8F0B8B9A0F_1_201_aBA92A81A-9BA3-4705-9993-C8CB384573B1_4_5005_c

I layered two sentiments on top of each other to create this , I wanted it to fill up the lower portion of the panel.

Thanks for the visit to day and God bless you.

Valentine's Blog Blitz: Scribble Daisy Heart Frame
by Sue McRae

IMG_0373c

Welcome to another day of our Blog Blitz! Sue here with a sparkly Valentine's Day card using the new Scribble Daisy Heart Frame. Keep on reading to see how you could win this die.

What I love about this die, is that it can be used throughout the year for many occasions, not just Valentine's Day. This die would be great for a wedding, anniversary, birthday or Mother's Day. Lots of possibilities!

IMG_0337c

I started by die cutting the frame 3 times from 80lb Neenah Solar White card stock and once from blue glitter card stock. I adhered the 3 layers of white card stock together and hand cut a piece of white card stock to which  I glued the frame to give it a backing.

IMG_0346c

Next I used glitter glue in pink, yellow and orange and squeezed the colours into each petal of the flowers. When doing this I filled the petal right up to the top because as the glitter glue dries it sinks. I didn't have any glitter glue to do the background of the frame so I used the blue glitter card stock and paper pieced those in.

IMG_0356c

There's a new beautiful 3D embossing folder out with leaves, flowers and a heart. Before running the folder through my die cutting machine I sprayed the card stock (80lb Neenah Solar White) with a bit of water, this helps to soften the paper fibers so you get a deeper impression and the card stock won't crack.

IMG_0371c

I die cut the Love Heart from green glitter card stock and adhered that on top of the Daisy Frame heart. 

IMG_0372c

The sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder that has little flecks of coloured powder in it. You can also really see all the detail of the embossing folder.

IMG_0383c

Everything was adhered to a white card base (110lb Neenah Solar White).

E9619F1F-99CA-43FA-BD65-C4BC69ECD847_1_201_a

I cut many layers in quite a few colors to see what I wanted to use.

B5ECCFD0-9E10-42C0-8F17-D2DA2F74AC2B_1_201_a

I wanted to show you the fun leftovers of this die great for confetti and for shaker cards.

It's very simple to add a few dots on the back of the die to adhere to the base of your card.

07C68A18-3071-4F74-868E-CE45D870FCB1_1_201_a

I layered my card base with a few colors adhered just a bit down from the layer before. 

I think this would be beautiful in all white as well for an anniversary card etc.

86F1C91C-62F3-4AD7-893C-B6B6015E07BB

The card above it the one that I layered three times , then added some Martha Stewart glitter to the centers. So many options for this beautiful Poppystamps die. The sentiment is from  Memory box : Valentine Fun CL489  I used the same stamp set for both cards.

E0BDFEC6-735B-4E07-837D-018332B87124 

This card above it a bit more simple and so easy to make. One layer with a simple envelope using Poppystamps :Stitched Envelope craft die. I cut a piece of paper to fit inside then stamped the Hugs sentiments using Memory box clear stamp called: Valentine Fun Cl489

Leafy Snowflake Frame.
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 12.30 copy

Hi there Crafty Friends, 

Candice here from Papercrafting Elegance, back to share another holiday card.           Today's card although is holiday themed, has a lot of versatility and can also be used as a winter themed birthday or thank you card, by simply changing the sentiment and patterned paper.

Blog Post 12.30.19.2

The products I used for my project are the Leafy Snowflake Frame and the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die sets. This card came together quickly and was a breeze to make. Clean and simple is one of my favorite styles to use when mass producing holiday cards. 

To create this card, I first cut the Leafy Snowflake die twice from a piece of white cardstock and then again from a piece of red cardstock.  I snipped both sets of snowflakes from their frames, then separated the snowflakes into outlines and inlaid pieces.  

Next I inlaid the white snowflake piece into the red snowflake outline to create a red and white inlaid snowflake. These red and white snowflake pieces are held together with scotch tape on the reverse side. 

Blog Post 12.30.19.4

Next I took a piece of 6x6 pattern paper from the Dashing Holiday Paper Pad by Memory Box and cut it to 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 for the background on my card. I then die cut the largest frame from the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die set from a piece of red cardstock and added the fame to the patterned paper with some liquid glue.

I then adhered the inlaid snowflake to the card using some 3M foam tape. Lastly I added some silver rhinestones to each of the six points on the snowflake points and one rhinestone to the center for a bit of shimmer and shine. 

Blog Post 12.30.19.3

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment "warmest wishes" from the Flower Garden stamp set in Versamark onyx black ink onto a 1/2 inch strip of white cardstock and adhered the sentiment just below the snowflake with foam tape. I think this card is absolutely stunning. 

Blog Post 12.30.19.5

I hope you all enjoyed today's project and found a bit of inspiration. Thank you all for joining me today. I wish you all a Happy New Year! and look forward to sharing more projects with you in 2020.

Noel by
by Marybeth Lopez

6CC08D44-EB23-4A91-BC59-5412865BA769_1_201_a

Hello! Are you all ready for Christmas.... Not me!!!  I think I will have most of my cards mailed by the time this post. I really needed a few more flat cards to mail , so I created this one using Poppystamps beautiful Festive Noel craft die.

AD407EDD-56FC-4427-88BF-9155794A33C7_1_201_a

I had a hard deciding whether I wanted all white Noel or all red. I cut a few of the Noel die and played around with it. I thought I wanted all white but because of the stripes I felt like it needed the red to help ground it.

B6AB8A81-F033-4ACD-A3E0-969DD12D293B_1_201_a

It didn't take up much time to decide so still a fast card to get out before Christmas. Next year I have to make more cards that don't take up extra postage, this one will be perfect. I added some Glossy Accents to the red berries for a bit of extra dimension.

1BCE62FC-DA05-4360-90BB-BFBA47A24511_1_201_a

I love using this memory box patterned paper . As you can see above this one die packs a bunch all into one.

C42458C3-C2C0-4318-9E17-61D6E9BA54D3_1_201_a

This is what I stamped on the inside of most of my cards.  I combined the stamps from Christmas Time I love the simple elegant way it fills the inside with a beautiful message.

I wanted to thank you all for your comments so often on my/our post, your kindness is heartwarming and I thank you.

57F84FE6-A156-4F5E-9B30-13484C3B5319_1_201_a

 

Thank you so much for the visit today. I hope you all have a beautiful Christmas ( if you celebrate) and a Peaceful New Year.  God Bless.

A Child is Born
by Marybeth Lopez

D92ABFCD-A932-4FB5-B787-53C009AE08DE_1_201_a

Hi there ! Marybeth here today with an ink blended Christmas card from Poppystamps and using a Merry Christmas stencil from Memory box . The Stencil is called: Christmas Cursive Merry. I thought is was from last year but I was wrong sorry it's from 2014  #88578 You can make this card using any Christmas stencil you have .

707FEBB7-18C5-4B0F-9CFF-01A8B9BF6C0A

I sprayed the back side of my stencil with : Pixie Spray I think I bought mine on Amazon but many places sell it. I started out ink blending with Candied Apple and wanted a deeper red.

761F33B5-2DFE-4749-9975-96F6E3875712

I went over my stencil a second time using : Festive Berries

E13A6116-F919-41F3-8E05-5E2A5EDC3034

Then one last time did the trick using Ruby red. I love that you can add to the card base with any color. This stencil is very detailed and so easy to do with a blending brush as pictured above. Now the fun part......

6DAD9798-E03E-4A26-888C-0A8F0D6307A6

Taking the stencil off! Without the spray to hold such a detailed stencil in place , it would be hard to have such a clean white image , I love how this turned out. I couldn't decide what color to frame my sentiment ( using the snow globe ) so the frame is cut 3 times and glued together. Then I added a bit of glue to add my two layer dove and olive branch . 

5355C1B6-F69F-47ED-AB0B-E01FFA6017BC

My new and very favorite craft glue is : Art Glitter Adhesive.... It comes with a stainless tip and pin to keep the adhesive flowing freely and the tip is so fine . I love how precise this glue is. Many places sell that too , pretty sure I bought mine on amazon . No glitter in it it's just what it called.  I will share a picture of it on my blog. Here  

32E1FB3C-D8CF-46A9-B2DD-0627A2FEE44E

I used the Snowglobe ,Christmas Time Stamps and Dove and Olive Branch from Poppystamps the patterned paper around the frame is from memory box Dashing Stripes and Dots.

Thank you so much for the visit today.  Hope I have inspired you in some small way and I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

Holiday Blog Blitz: Holly Frame
by Sue McRae

P1370409c

Hello crafty friends, Sue here with my first card for the Poppystamps design team! This is a perfect time to pop in for a visit because there's a blog blitz going on with great Christmas prizes every day!

Today I'm featuring the new Holly Frame and Stencil set and it's a beauty with a lot of detail going on around the frame, around the circular window and on the leaves.

P1370413c

I started by die cutting the frame from green fibre card stock, layering the stencil over it and applying some dark green ink with a blender brush for a soft contrast on the leaves.

P1370397c

Then I die cut the Delicate Poinsettias from red fibre card stock and decided to add a little sparkle to the petals. I took a finger dauber, tapped it into Versamark ink and lightly dabbed the edges of the flower petals. I sprinkled on some red glitter embossing powder and heat set. Now the flowers have a pretty glittery edge.

P1370398c

I also die cut the poinsettia from vellum, cut apart the petals and used them as leaves. For the sentiment I used Tidings of Joy stamp and die set and gold embossed the word Joy. This is a great little set of sentiments to have for Christmas cards.

P1370411c

For my assembled card I cut a piece of gold glitter card stock to place behind the holly panel and adhered everything together. I finished off by adding red Stickles around the frame and adding a jewel for the flower centre.

P1370418c

Creep It Real
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 10.31

Happy Halloween Everyone! 

To celebrate the holiday, I am showcasing a Halloween card made with the Spellcaster Witch and Magical Cauldron dies that were released in September. I just love the little spooky witch die and how she coordinates with the cauldron to appear as though she is making spooky witches brew! 

10.31.19 Blog Post

The background of today's card was made using my distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed. I used these colors to mimic the popular Pastel Halloween theme that I love so much. I sprinkled some water onto the background piece to create that beautiful oxidation, then dried my cardstock with a piece of paper towel. Next, I die cut the witch, cauldron and frame using some black cardstock from my stash. I also die cut the cauldrom from my inked background piece to emboss the steam from the cauldron onto the paper. 

10.31.19 Blog Post Close Up Photo

I then adhered the die cut witch and the black cauldron to the colored cardstock piece with some foam tape. Next I used my wink of stella glitter pen on the witch to give the witch a bit of sparkle. 

Witch close up angle

I  then stamped the sentiment, Creep It Real, from the Halloween Fun stamp set onto a piece of white cardstock in black Versafine ink. I created some banner tails on the white cardstock, then adhered the piece onto my card front with some foam tape. 

Witch card close up

I just love the color combination of this card and how quick and easy it all came together. I hope you enjoyed today's project. Have a great day and Happy Halloween!
