With Love
by Donna Peachey

Edit-2-2

Have you seen the Poppystamps Challenge for this month?

It's all about 'Love'.  In fact, 'Love Me Do' is the theme.

So whether it's an engagement, a wedding, an anniversary...  or any other 'Love' theme you can think of, we would love to see your design.

Will you be playing along?

I do hope so!  There is still time.

Here's how my 'Love' themed card was made...

IMG_5008

I've started off by using the middle sized Pinpoint Hearts craft die.

FullSizeRender 3

To add the slightest hint of a background I've used a few of the die cuts from the Little Kindness set as stencils.

Be very gentle adding the ink.  (I used a finger dauber).  You want just the smallest amount to add a hint of a design to the background.

IMG_5001

Then I've inked up some stamping card using a gorgeous shade of pink liquid watercolour...  and once dry, cut out both sizes of Whittle Hearts.

Next comes the stamping (heat embossed).  Isn't this just the cutest little stamp set?

FullSizeRender

This Gentle Hearts die is really so versatile.  (It's just been discontinued this week, so if it was on your 'wish list' now's the time to get scouring the shops as some may still have it in stock).  I've simply cut it from a strip of black card and distressed the edges.

Notice that I've cut it ever so slightly wider than the width of the card base?

FullSizeRender 2

You'll need these two flowers (cut twice as shown) from the Tall Sketch Daisies set.  Glue them together to create a little dimension. 

Then, using the same grey card, cut out two sets of the Birdsong Mini Corner (see supplies if you aren't sure what this die looks like).  You'll be cutting these corners in half as you only need the mini branch with two leaves on.

1-2

Assemble the card as shown (you'll need to trim down the flower stems), adding one tiny gem and one black heart...  then spray with silver glitter varnish.

2-2

I know glitter varnish can be hard to see on a photo.  Hope this close up helps!

As always, thank you so much for stopping by today.

Oh, and to save you looking here's a quick reminder...

You have until 12 am US EST on February 26th to link up your design to the challenge blog.

We can't wait to see what you make!

Friendship Day is Any Day!
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Friendship Card Full WITH

I love to send my friends cards, for no other reason than to let them know I'm thinking of them! Here are a few friendship dates I thought you might want to mark on your calendars just in case!

In Oberlin, Ohio, Friendship Day is celebrated on April  8th.  National Best Friends Day is a holiday celebrated on June 8th.  The United Nations decided July 30th would be he International Day of Friendship.  Friendship Day, in the United States, is celebrated on the first Sunday in August, August 4th this year! As you can see there are a number of days you could send a friendship card; but why not send a card...just because?  Don't wait for a special day!!!

PS Friendship Card CU3  WITH

I used the Ribbon Heart Sidekick Frame die and fussy cut out the hearts! I just love how the Ribbon Hearts look by themselves! I adhered the hearts onto a grey corrugated strip of cardstock!

PS Friendship Card CU2 WITH

My sentiment is from the Love and Friendship stamp set and includes several heartfelt sentiments for many "friendship" occasions!! I heat embossed the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Brutus Monroe Sterling Embossing Powder.

PS Friendship Card CU1 WITH

My video will show you just how easy this Friendship card was to assemble!!

 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Just A Note Cards
by Nadine Carlier

Thinking Of You Card by Nadine Carlier using Poppystamps

Hello, Nadine here again with a some Just A Note cards with a fun and easy background technique overlayed with Poppystamps Diamond Background die. I created the background in several different colors. These cards would be great to give as a gift of a set of cards for someone.

Mixed Media Heart
by Donna Peachey

3-2

It didn't take me long to realise that I could have some Mixed Media fun with the Wavy Heart craft die. 

Corrugated card is one of my favourite things to use with Mixed Media work, so in today's post I'm combining the two.  And what's more, once you have the basic idea under your belt you can decorate it however you please.

Here's a 'how to' guide...

Snapseed

Start by drawing around the actual die and cutting it out with scissors.  I've used a piece of scrap card packaging as I like the fact the a small bit of text will show on the finished design.

You may want this to have some degree of durability, so please add and glue together additional layers if you so wish.

Snapseed 2

Next, grab your corrugated card stash.  As you can see, mine's in two different colour tones (you'll understand why shortly).

You will want to cut out this die twice.  Once with the pattern running top to bottom and once with it running left to right.

Snapseed 3

It's mix and match time!

Take alternate strips off one die cut and swap them out with the pieces from the other.

Then glue into place on your hand cut die shape.  It's up to you whether you use one heart for the front and one for the back or keep the other for a separate project.

FullSizeRender

Now to decorate Mixed Media style...   Don't forget to do the back if you've used both hearts for this project!

Snapseed 4

Here's a visual guide to the supplies used to decorate...

Firstly, sponge on the brown inks.  I've used the lighter shade on the rows running left to right and darker for the rows running top to bottom.

Then add a layer of gilding wax focusing mainly on the outside edge of the heart.

Next it's paint splatter time.  Light blue first.  Once dry, add the white.

Only when completely dry...  add partial black images using this stamp from the Studio Blotter clear stamp set.

(Tip...  don't use a stamp tool or a stamp block for this.  Just hold the stamp in your hand and apply the stamp to the archival ink pad, then press down on to the heart using your fingers to add pressure.  This stops your corrugated heart from getting flattened).  

Snapseed 5

You can choose whatever you like to decorate.  I'm using the Fresh Petals craft die along with a sentiment from the Little Kindness clear stamp set.

The fullest flower uses every petal from the die cut set.  Such versatility and such cute little flowers!

4-2

Here's a close up of the fullest flower.  I've added a layer of varnish (from a spray can) to all three flowers.

Snapseed 6
Decide on your layout, but before gluing the flowers and branch pieces into position add one final finishing touch - this small 'dotty' stamp from the Studio Blotter set.

Stamp it freehand just as you did with the other stamp, then glue everything into place and add the sentiment (which I've stamped with Memento 'Gray Flannel').

5-2

Add a hole and some twine...  and you are finished!

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Enjoy your day.

by Nadine Carlier

Friendship Card using Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a CAS friendship card that could also easily be made into a Valentine's card as well.  I used the new Tumbled Heart Balloon Collage and the Whittle Elephant dies along with the Love and Friendship stamp set all from the new 2019 Valentine release.

Thank You Card Set
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0005_wm

February brings the hope of Spring, and I'm here today with some ideas for easy, fun stamping.

DSC_0026

I love doing cards in multiples, especially for giving gifts. A set of thank you cards (A1 size) is the perfect appreciation to give a friend. Or a neighbor who fed the cats while you were away?

DSC_0014

I selected one of my favorite Poppy stamp sets, Little Kindnesses, and a Poppy tag die, marking off the die, lightly with a pencil. Here's where the fun starts. Using my Misti, each card is placed and stamped one after another, in an assembly line. 

DSC_0013

Here's a look at all the elements before the card is assembled. Each tag is inked a different color, 6 total.

DSC_0015

I placed my tag in the Misti for placement of the bee trail as well.

DSC_0018 2

The large die cut flower is copic colored, coordinated with the tag, and adhered to the tag. If you look closely, you can see I glued only the center of the flower so I could curl up the petals slightly. Finishing touches include the script die cut and some Nuvo drops.

DSC_0019

Don't forget the envelopes! So easy to decorate them with the Misti too!

DSC_0032

Packaged together with a ribbon, a sweet way to say, 'thank you'. And great therapy for a cold winter's afternoon. How nice to have several of these sets on hand, ready to go.

DSC_0025

I hope this post today brought you a bit of Spring sunshine. And I hope you're feeling crafty, no matter the temp outside!

Little Donut Love
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5959-wm

Hello Friends!

Welcome to our amazing Poppystamps Blog Blitz! We are so happy you could join us today for a little love and a little inspiration! Today I am sharing a card I created with the adorable Little Donut! Take a look!

IMG_5956-wm

I started with a simple watercolor splash and splatter on my card base, then stamped "Sprinkled With Love," from the Donut What I'd Do clear stamp set. Of course, what is a donut without sprinkles?

IMG_5962-wm

To top off my sweet little donuts, I added teeny tiny little pink seed bead "sprinkles." They are super cute but a little challenging to work with! The tiny beads add a fun texture to the little donuts too!
