Springtime Greetings using Rinea foil
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.587661750898E12

Hello everyone! These are troubled times, but I hope you're finding time to enjoy the little things. Like spring, warmer weather, flowers blooming and the abundance of colors in them.

This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together. Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects. The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base. This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet. Additionally this gives it the ability to hold it's shape making it perfect for dimensional flowers.

By now you must know that I'm more of a "go all in"-type rather than cas, so I used dies from the spring release to cut lots of foil in lots of gorgoeus spring colors.

The base for the Butterfly symphony and barrow-part are white cardstock. Everything else is foil. I used a smooth gold foil to back the base.

I gave the wheelbarrow a quick coloring with Copics. Of course I stamped the sentiment first, so I had to be careful since I hadn't used a Copic-safe ink. Again I used smooth foil for the wheel and flower clusters. I actually cut the blue one in half because I wanted it spread out more and also to give room for the butterflies. Since I placed the blue ones at the back it doesn't show at all.

The flowers (as well as hedgehogs and butterflies), however, I cut from textured foil just to spice things up.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

After adhering the wheelbarrow to the base I added the extra flowers and 2 hedgehogs. See how Mrs. hog has a flower behind her ear while Mr. hog is fetching her a butterfly?

You'll notice the hedgehogs are mirrored and I simply just used one front and one back, since the textured foils are textured on both sides. 
Watermark1.587661750898E12

Just look at how well these foils hold themselves up. Love that!
Watermark1.587661750898E12

I was so happy to work with these foils, and I do hope you'll give them a try. You'll love the smooth and textured foils and all the beautiful colors they come in.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you'll leave me a reply. I love reading them. Stay safe!

IMG_1248c

For my card I die cut the Garden Poppy Stitched Frame 3 times from white card stock and layered them. I coloured the flowers with Copic marker and I did a water colour wash over the flower background piece.

IMG_1230c

I added raindrops to the blue panel using a homemade stencil and silver glitter embossing paste. 

IMG_1233c

To continue with the silver theme I die cut the Whittle Cloud Border from silver glitter card stock.

I'm popping in to remind everyone that the monthly challenge going on at Poppystamps is Animal Menagerie.

IMG_0598c

I made a baby card for the challenge using some of the new Whittle animal dies. The animals in this series are adorable and there's a whole family of them. You can see them all here.

IMG_0580c

The giraffe and hedgehog were die cut from some scrap alcohol ink paper I had and I added some detail with Copic markers. The panda has a fuzzy fun flock belly and of course I had to add googly eyes!

IMG_0585c

The are sitting inside the cute Stitched Envelope that is so easy to put together. I also used the new Whittle Cloud Border with the great stitching.

IMG_0574c

I finished off the card with white paint splatters on the background and a sentiment.

Now it's your turn to make a project for the challenge. You have all month to play along. Just make sure to include an animal on your card and at least one Poppystamps product. The winner will get a gift certificate to the Poppystamps online store! All the details can be found here.

You are amazing

Hi Poppy fans! For todays card I took inspiration in the current situation in Australia. It is absolutely heartbreaking and my heart goes out to everyone affected.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

First I ink blended a panel to symbolize the blazing fire and set this aside to dry.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I then ink blended another panel to symbolize the burnt trees. After this panel dried I cut it with the Tall skyline Tree frame.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I cut out the Peek a boo koala and colored it. Then I cut off the frame.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I white heat embossed a sentiment on the cut frame and adhered it to the base panel. I adhered the koala as well. From a piece of white cardstock I cut the Samba heart border and measured where I wanted to score it. I then adhered the left side of the panel to the back of the base.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

After adhering the half front, heart cut panel I used my stamping tool to measure where I wanted the sentiments. I didn't want them showing through the cut out hearts.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I added a couple of dots of black Nuvo drops as eyes and nose for the koala.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

On the "inside" I adhered a couple of the cut out hearts from the border. Let's all pray for the survival of the unique and endemic animals of Australia.

Valentine's blog blitz - Love & Hugs
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.57878356454E12

Happy new year, Poppy fans! We are continuing our valentine's blog blitz and I'm sharing 2 cards today showcasing the beautiful Grid heart frame die. Although the Danish flourists have long adapted the valentine's tradition, I myself have not. So instead I made cards of love and hugs.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For the first card I ink blended a background with pink oxide inks and cut the frame 4 times from white cardstock. I layered the frames and glued them on top of the pink base.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut and colored the Whittle panda. To avoid getting my black marker all over the panda I placed a piece of cardstock behind the eye.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut the envelope, heart tag and love outline letters from white cardstock - the shadow from black cardstock. I ink blended the tag and also the little cut out heart. I stamped the sentiments and tugged the panda into the envelope so it looks like he's holding the tag.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

Both the envelope and love outline are popped up with craft foam and the panda itself is popped up as well. I ran over the tiny heart...
Watermark1.57878356454E12

... as well as the letters with a clear sparkle pen and then glossy accents for a shiny dimensional look. Isn't it pretty!?
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For a final touch I added some clear sequins.

IMG_20200112_000701

The other card is all about hedge-hugs. Here I also ink blended the base with oxide inks but this time I threw in a little purple as well.
IMG_20200112_000701

I cut and colored the Whittle hedgehog. Once again I stuck a piece of cardstock behind the ear to ensure not getting my light and dark colors mixed.
IMG_20200112_000701

I left the hugs heart white but popped it up and backed it with a piece of cardstock inked with the same color as the base.
IMG_20200112_000701

Although the light makes it a little hard to see the Grid heart frame is heat embossed with a pretty soft pink and sparkly embossing powder. Sooo gorgeous!
IMG_20200112_000701

And here's the finished card. I hope I have inspired you. But wait... the best is yet to come! You could win the Grid heart frame used on these cards.

Blog Blitz Valentine
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0013 2

Welcome! Poppystamps begins the New Year with a Blog Blitz and a chance for you to win the beautiful new dies in the 2020 Valentine collection! Come take a look at the new Meadowblossom Frame and Stencil. 

DSC_0012_wm

The beautiful etched heart and frame die cut with perfectly wonderful detail. And Poppy includes the stencil which allows you to color the flowers. Take a look at how I made my card.

DSC_0081

Using 2 Distress Ink colors, I loosely applied ink to my card front.

DSC_0082

You can't see the die cut frame, but I positioned it on my card front, then inserted the heart into the frame and lightly penciled around it. This is where my sentiment will go.

DSC_0083

New to Poppy's Valentine release is this sentiment set called, Valentine's Fun. Hugs and Kisses has the sweetest curly flourish and fits perfectly within the heart.

After stenciling and inking my flowers, I added some detail with these copic colors.

DSC_0014

I also added a small bouquet at the top of the heart, and some Nuvo drops to the flower centers.
