Nautical Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I used the Poppystamps Wavy Heart Die for my summer holiday inspiration to create a nautical themed shaker card.

I used the lighthouse and sail boat from the Poppystamps Lighthouse Frame Die and stamped the sentiment using the "Miss You" stamp from the Poppystamps Art Deco You Are Wonderful Stamp Set.

The Song In Your Heart
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_09-06-2019_14-02-09-2

I've gone 'old school' today with a slightly distressed plaid and twine creation.

Here's how it was made...

IMG_7129-2

I've started off by inking up my Picnic Plaid stamp.  Ink directly on to the stamp, add paper and use a brayer to transfer the image.  As I didn't want quite such a deep impression I decided not to use a stamp cushion underneath everything prior to using the brayer. 

Once dry, simply cut to size.  I've chosen to cut mine so that it has a slightly distressed area showing at the top.

Then stamp directly on to the Plaid square using red ink.

IMG_7130-2

To make the stamped sentiment stand out you will need to stamp it again on to acetate.

IMG_7131-2

Once dry, simply glue it in to place using a very thin layer of strong adhesive.

(Do not be tempted to cut the acetate down to size until the glue is completely dry as it will become unstuck).

IMG_7166-2

Then add the Stitchwork Square Frame and apply a thin layer of gilding wax.

IMG_7167-2

The Seed Love Collage 'O' sits quite nicely in the larger of the two Whittle Heart Frames. 

Start by gluing two Frames together, then add the decorative Seed Collage 'O' (once you've cut it to size).  

The yellow heart is simply the waste from a Frame cut in white.  I've used a darker colour in the middle area as I like the subtle difference you can see once it's all glued together.

IMG_7169-2

You'll only need to ink one Whittle Bird...  but you will need to cut it three times and glue those layers together!

IMG_7170-2

Now for the background...

Random ink blending, then a little 'pouncing' to add to that slightly distressed feel.

Add two' inked up' notes and heat emboss them as shown.  I've chosen to heat emboss using a clear 'crystal' effect powder for a touch of extra shimmer and shine.

Then I've used a small strip of red liner tape to attach my twine.

I'm sorry... 

Did I hear you say you can't see both notes?

Z-2

Look very closely at that top right area of the card...

Do you see it now?

I used a clear embossing ink and the same crystal effect powder to add just a subtle touch of extra detail.

A-2

You'll need to add a few strips of scrap card top and bottom on the acetate square prior to gluing that in to position.

Q-2

Don't forget to add a tied bow to finish!

Thanks heaps for stopping by today...

Sea of Love Challenge Reminder
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Challenge June 2019 Full WITH

Have you entered Poppystamps challenge, PSC#57 Summer Holiday, yet??? No! Well why not? It's as easy as making a project with a summer holiday theme and use one Poppystamps product!  My card features the Wavy Heart die and everytime I see this die I think of the Honeydrippers cover of the song, Sea of Love!  Reminds me of a summer holiday romance, LOL!!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU1 WITH

For my background I used Memory Box Sprinkle Dots stencil which I colored with blue ink to match my heart die cut. I cut a solid heart from scrap paper and adhered the individual pieces from the die cut onto the solid heart!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU3 WITH

Sometimes you just HAVE to make your own sentiments and this was no exception! I used the font, American Typewriter, a few of the lyrics from the song and just hit print on my computer; easy peasy! I then cut the lyrics apart and joined them together with a small brad!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU2  With

I finished my card with a simple sentiment from Poppystamps Sending Love stamp set! Here's a quick video showing how this card was made!

 


 

I hope you play along with us! The rules are simple and all the details can be found here!

Thanks for stopping by...

by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_10fe

Happy Monday to you!  Marybeth  here today sharing another card using some more of my extra alcohol blended ink papers I made . I used Poppystamps : Luscious Script Sending , Hugs and Picnic Plaid.

If you would like to see  how you can make your own , Jennifer McGuire shares a how to video .

Fullsizeoutput_10fb

This is the picture I have of all the first time tries with alcohol inks. I wasn't real pleased with them at first but so glad I kept them for smaller details and backgrounds.

IMG_1491

I  place the die, cut side down on the paper then run it through my cutting machine, then layered  on the larger background.

IMG_1513

Each die comes with the top and larger background die .

IMG_1495 Watermark copy

The  inside of my card  says "YOU" to finish off the front sentiment ( I forgot to take the picture). It is also from Poppystamps: Picnic Plaid Clear Stamp set.

This card is a bit bigger than A2, it measures  6 x 4 1/4 . 

I hope you have a wonderful week! Hugs

Hello Cupcake
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1441

Hello sweet friends ! Happy June to you all!

I would like to say this was a simple card to make ( It should have been) but I had many mishaps along the way. I kept going and I am happy with the results in the end.

I used Poppystamps :Whittle Cupcake die,  Luscious Script Hello and Flower Garden Clear stamp. 

IMG_1430

One thing that was easy was using some scraps of alcohol ink papers I made, that I saved. I die cut twice for the colors then just layered the extra pieces on top of the other, to firm it up a bit.

IMG_1428

Below are some of my first try alcohol ink papers, didn't really know what I was doing. I  used all kinds of paper, even photo paper because its what I had.  I saved them anyway and glad I did because they work great for dies.

For a little extra detail on my panel I scored it all the way around 1/2 inch.  

One of the mishaps at the end was getting a tiny bit of ink on my hand that then ended up on the panel, I was able to use an ink eraser to get it off.

It was late in the day an I didn't have the best lighting for my photo.

I also used some of the leftover papers as shown above for the top layer of the hello then stamped with the sentiment from Flower Garden. I used the cupcake to represent sweet friend. I couldn't resist adding a bit of chunky glitter to the top of the cupcake.

I hope you enjoy your weekend. Hugs to you all!

You Are Too Kind
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0017

Wow! Can you believe we are entering a month that heralds summer? There are flowers everywhere in my valley. They inspired this summery card with a floral background.

DSC_0007 2

With Altenew's Snapdragon ink, and my Misti, I stamped Poppy's Flower Garden, and made sure I had a good print. (Whatever did we do without our Mistis?) Then I picked a copic in a grey lavender to ink in the background, so my flowers would pop even more.

DSC_0013_wm

I added my sentiment on Poppy's Art Deco Frame, and inked the sentiment panel a bit on the edges.

DSC_0024

A little bit of foam pops up the rose and top panel of the sentiment

DSC_0023

Hope this gives you some inspiration to add some summer to your cards.

Sympathy Card
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1211 2

Hello! Marybeth here today with a feminine sympathy card, using :Poppystamps clear stamps and dies. 

I tried not to make it too busy  but wanted to add more than just the background  . 

IMG_1184

I stamped the background with: Flower Garden and used : Tim Holtz distressed oxide inks. First I stamped lightly with the ink pad then blended the inks so it would not have any harsh lines.

IMG_1185

I kept doing it till I was happy with the results. I am using the MISTI Stamping tool.

Download-2

The sentiment comes with the background  stamp set: Flower Garden, all linked below.

IMG_1186

I die cute the Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame a few times so I would have a few flowers to put around the :Whittle Hearts.

I randomly cut them apart then sanded with a sanding block to smooth the edges, then tucked them around the heart.

Mother's Day
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_0969

Hi there friends of Poppystamps! Marybeth here today, with this square Mother's Day card made for one of my daughters , she has three girls . They also have a family of ducks raised in their back yard /pool for the last few years. I thought this sweet little Poppystamps Whittle Duck Die would make a sweet little note card for her gift.

IMG_0912

I stamped the center of the Whittle Wood  Frame with Picnic Plaid both from Poppystamps 

IMG_0974

The frame is cut three times and glued together , I also cut and glued the mother duck three times.  I stamped the sentiment from Picnic Plaid .

IMG_0979

The Picnic Plaid has quite a few sentiments to choose from that go well with: Thank You

IMG_0981

The inside of the card finishes the front sentiment with a thank you! ( I know a bit backwards but it works for me)

It was about how the front of the card would look :)

IMG_0954 Watermark copy

 

This is a simple card with layered detail and subtle colors. I hope all the mothers have a wonderful Mother's Day! I am blessed to still have my mother with me. God bless all mother's everywhere.

Donut You Forget
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0006

I have a card for you that's going to a young boy today. Sometimes it can be hard to create something for the young ones in our lives. Hopefully this will help give you some ideas.

DSC_0001

I picked a Poppystamp die that I could cut several colors from, and saved the little donut holes. They looked so festive!

DSC_0004_wm

The finished card is a combination of color and elements my little guy loves (who doesn't love donuts?)

DSC_0008

Here's a sideview of the popups. 

DSC_0009

I had a few leftover donuts, so I added them to the inside. 

Hope you got some ideas for you next child card.  And hope your week is extra crafty!
