Seas the Day

Hello crafters! I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far! I have an ocean card with the Underwater 3D Embossing Folder as my main product.

20210724_124539c

I started by taking a piece of watercolor paper and swiping Distress Inks across it.

I sprayed it with quite a bit of water to get the colors to blend then heat set it.

I took the same ink colors and added more layers using an ink blending tool.

I flicked on some plain water and blotted it with a paper towel and ran the piece through the die cutting machine with the embossing folder. Lots of amazing detail!

Using my finger, I took white pigment ink and rubbed it on the raised designs to make them stand out better.

I cut the panel down slightly to leave a border on an A2 card. I die cut the Whittle Fish Trio from silver foil paper and added them with foam adhesive.

I die cut a Word Balloon, trimmed off the tail and stamped the sentiment on it and I added a few Fairy Drops to finish off the card.

Hello Poppystamps friends, Marybeth Lopez here today sharing a card using the new Geometric Deco Plate from Poppystamps.

I used an older panel made with alcohol inks that I saves. Cut the plate twice and layered it over the panel.

With all the tiny details I used Craft Bond spray and it went on in no time.

I know I covered up the center , for some reason I needed to tone it down with the inside of the panel, kinda nice to have that option with the Deco Plate.

I used the Poppystamps , Art Deco Birthday Greetings set for the center pael.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting .

Art Deco Happy Birthday
by Tiffany Pryce

20210715_135459

Hello friends! Tiffany here with more Art Deco inspiration from the Summer Theater release. When I was thinking about this card, the Wizard of Oz kept coming to mind. The glitz, green, and opulence of the Emerald City was my inspiration, along with the sample from the Poppystamps website.

Here's a look at all of the supplies I used for this card. I like that it is easy to mass produce with minimal supplies and can be customized to fit your recipient. Another bonus is that it is flat so it will go through the mail easily.

I started by trimming a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack. I choose a pattern with geometric shapes to go along with the Art Deco theme. Anyone else keep pattern paper forever? I encourage you to use it as a background to any card! Then, I die cut the Reeded Deco Curve Border die from green foil cardstock from the Polished Foil Pad. I die cut twice to create the border around my sentiment. The emerald green color is so pretty.

For the sentiment, I die cut an oval from the center of my pattern paper. I ink blended some dark green dye ink around the edges for a halo effect, and silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Art Deco Birthday Greetings stamp set. Finally, I added green Fairy Jewels around my card for a little sparkle.

Challenge Reminder: Just Add Water
by Nancy Penir

Hello! I have a challenge reminder for you. This month's inspiration is: 'Just Add Water'.

 

DSC_0016 3_wm

I chose to do an underwater scene with Open Studio's  fabulous new embossing folder.

                                                  6a01157003623c970c0282e10ca671200b-320wi

I began with an aqua cardstock, embossed it, and added Perfect Pearls for a shimmer. Haven't played with my perfect pearls for a while. I just love the sheen it gives the tops of the embossing.

Also added some copper pearling (very light handed with the copper!).

To finish my card, I stamped a message from Poppy's new Art Deco Stamp set, with a strip of the pattern paper at the top.

Art Deco Joy
by Sue McRae

20210707_103809c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a card using products from the new Summer Theater release which has quite a few beautiful art deco dies.

20210706_125331c

I’m using the Geometric Deco Plate. It is actually two dies that can create several different looks. If you use both dies together you will end up with 4 die cut pieces. I used 3 of the 4 die cuts on my card.

20210706_125918c

I really wanted the art deco design to be the star so I decided to make a colourful background for it using Alcohol Pearl Inks. I squeezed a bunch of rainbow goodness colours onto Yupo paper and moved the alcohol ink around with a blower. I got a lot of pretty ridges and ripples for some great texture.

20210707_104009c

I adhered the art deco panel onto the inky background and then die cut the panel 3 more times so I could get four layers of some of the inner sections. I wanted to layer up the square pieces from the design and glue them back into place.

20210707_103837c

I used one of the sentiments from the new Art Deco Birthday Greetings and heat embossed it in platinum embossing powder. I popped this up with foam tape and added a few gems for a little more sparkle.

20210707_104034c

You can see in this photo that there’s a variety of heights on the card and this makes the card more visually pleasing.

Welcome back to the blog, crafty friends! Tiffany here with a a fun, Art Deco inspired card using products from the newest release, Summer Theater! If you haven't seen it yet, head over to the shop after reading this blog. It's so pretty and will add a little drama to your Poppystamps collection. My card is pretty straightforward so let's get into it!

The main elements of my card use the Geometric Deco Plate background die. First, I used this die to die cut two A2-sized panels - once from light gold cardstock from the Polished Foil Pad and once from dark yellow cardstock. I adhered the gold frame on top of the yellow frame with liquid glue, offsetting the frames the slightest bit so you can see the yellow peek out. I adhered the layered frame to an A2-sized piece of dark navy cardstock. 

20210710_141255

You could leave it like this and add your sentiment, but I wanted to step it up a bit. After my frame was complete, I used the Geometric Deco Plate die to die cut two additional A2 panels - once from seafoam green and once from aqua cardstock from the Fresh Aqua Collection paper pack. I used the negative die cut pieces to inlay into my gold frame. I did not want to cover the whole thing as I loved the dark navy, so I strategically adhered various pieces of green and aqua pieces throughout my card. I love this technique because I enjoy puzzles. I think the final results are so pretty and dramatic. It reminds me of stained glass. Imagine all of the beautiful color combinations that are possible!

For the sentiment, I first created the frame around the sentiment. The frame is die cut from one of the pieces that comes with the Geometric Deco Plate die. I reversed the order for some interest and glued the dark yellow frame on top of the gold frame, again offsetting it a tiny bit. Inside the sentiment frame, I glued three layers of the interior section together for dimension and popped it up on foam tape. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Art Deco Birthday Greetings stamp set in white embossing powder on the light gold cardstock. 

I made a mistake while heat embossing the sentiment. I applied my anti-static powder bag all over the gold foil and when it was time to wipe it away, the anti-static powder was stuck to the foil. I tried to rub it off with a little water and it did not work. I tried to rub it away with a little isopropyl alcohol, and it worked! But, it worked too well because the alcohol rubbed off the gold coating too! I do not think it is very noticeable since the gold was so light initially, but I wanted to share what happened in case it prevents any of you from making the same mistake. Until next time, happy crafting!
