Hello everyone! I hope you are all safe and well. Here in Denmark we have now re-opened pretty much everything, which is a bit worrying. I'm glad schools only have a few weeks left before summer break, although the weather is more autumn like than summer. With my card today I'm trying to rectify that and bring you summer vibes.

I started by ink blending Antique linen distress ink through the Romantic Blooms stencil.

I then colored in the areas of flower petals with light yellow, light and dark pink Arteza markers and blended them with a waterbrush. I did the same with the leaves using 2 dusty green markers.

When I was done with my watercoloring I wanted to frame the image. This is when I realized my card stock was larger than an A2 panel. But this actually worked out great with this frame set. I cut the frame and the Friend word from glitter cardstock.

I added sparkle with a spectrum noir sparkle pen.

I adhered the frame and friend word, and stamped a sentiment.

Love Stitch Circle Frame
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps 2.13.20

Hey there crafty friends, 

Candice here on the blog today sharing with you a shaker card tutorial using the Love Stitch Circle Frame die and the Memory Box Drifting Hearts stencil. 

To get started take a piece of white cardstock measuring 5.7 inches tall x 4.5 inches wide and sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress oxide ink with your ink blending tool.  

Poppystamps 2.13.20.1

Next place the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts on top of your Spun Sugar cardstock panel and sponge the heart images onto your paper using Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Barn Door distress inks. Add each of the colors in order from lightest to darkest making sure to blend each of the colors together to avoid any harsh lines.   

Poppystamps 2.13.20.2

Now take your Double Stitched Rectangle Frame die and die cut a frame and inner panel from your heart stencil cardstock. The Double Stitched Rectangle frame will create the perfect A2 size card front panel. 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.3

Next die cut the Love Stitch Circle Frame once from a scrap piece of red cardstock and then again from a scrap piece of white cardstock. Snip away the love sentiment from the red scalloped circle frame, leaving just the frame behind. Adhere the red scalloped frame onto the white Love Stitch Circle Frame to create a two toned effect. 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.4

Next using a circle die or punch from you stash, cut a 3 inch circle from a piece of clear acetate. Adhere the acetate to the back of the two toned frame using some strong adhesive. I used 1/8th inch score tape.

With some 3M foam tape, cut a thin strip of adhesive foam long enough to go the entire perimeter of your scallop frame. Adhere your foam tape to back of your scalloped circle frame. Remember to double up on the adhesive so that there is enough clearance for your shaker bits to shake. Brush a bit of your embossing buddy on the inside of your adhesive foam to prevent the shaker bits from sticking to the sides. Now add your sequence or shaker bits. I am using Sprinkletz sweetheart embellishments. 

Remove the backing tape from the foam adhesive and add your stenciled card front to the shaker frame. Add your shaker card front panel onto an A2 side folding cardbase and your shaker card is now done! 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.5

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and found inspiration to create your very own shaker card. Thank you for joining me today. Until next time, happy crafting!

Sending XOXO
by Nancy Penir

Hi and welcome to a Valentine post! I have a card for you that's a shaker, made with Poppy's fabulous dies and features a stencil I made. Let me show you how.

DSC_0013

I wanted a simple background for my Meadowblossom Frame, and decided to make my own using Poppy's Confetti Heart Plate. It's really easy with a few tricks I've learned using different methods. Here's what I like best. Die cut your stencil with a nice sturdy vellum. Spray the back with Pixie light tack reposition adhesive spray (Amazon). and allow it to dry a minute or two. It will keep your stencil from moving during inking.

DSC_0014

I used Distress Oxide Inks, but used different amounts and pressure when applying the ink. I wanted a rather ombre effect.

DSC_0015

I wanted the heart and frame from the Meadowblossom frame, but not all the posies, as I wanted the background to show. I simply snipped all but the bottom corner from the frame and heart. I did this 5 times.

One die was glued down to my heart stenciled background.

DSC_0016 2

To make the perfect sized acetate for my shaker, I used the heart from the middle of the Meadowblossom frame, tracing onto the paper, and cutting a 1/8"  wider than the line. The heart acetate piece is glued to one of the 5 heart frames that will be on the top. The rest are all glued to the 1st piece.

The finished shaker. I added red Nuvo drops to the flower centers, and the red glitter hearts are outtakes from another valentine I did with Banded Hearts die plate.

Since I had the stencil, I decorated the flap of an envelope.

How are you coming with your valentines? Hope you got a little bit of inspiration today. And hope you picked up a few of the fabulous new dies during the release! Happy Crafting!

Love and Hearts
by Marybeth Lopez

31C9AB2A-648A-406E-9CDE-7578999F3D2E_1_201_a

Hi there, Marybeth here today with a Pink Valentine card. I used Poppystamps Love die , the beautiful memory box 3D embossing folder, ( love this folder and I use it on many envelopes too! I also used some leftover hearts from one of my other cards , using the Banded Heart die and the tiny hearts are from the Heartscape Hill die.

3E1D429C-1B79-44F7-BFB8-4FAE47A07F60_1_201_a

Jumping ahead, this card shows how I added shimmer ink all over the hearts and panel. You might see I stamped the heart on the O and then decided not to add anything to it, I covered it up with another layer of heart.

44D8584B-8DF5-4327-8354-62500539EBEA

I used all white paper for my card, all color comes from ink blending . I used the lighter pink for the large layer and the darker pink for the letters that go on top.

76C5537D-81A0-41BB-B520-0075D67983A0

Above is my card base, I wanted it to match the color die cuts, so I ink blended the outer edges only ( center won't show). I then placed the embossed panel on top of this base.

C8481226-4CE6-4DE1-A1E0-85DC5217704C

I added a few drop of my favorite glue to adhere the top layer of the dies to the large outline.  I love these two soft pinks together! Don't you just love the LOVE outline die!!!

5524F0E0-90EF-4F68-B7C0-E8599C13113E_1_201_a

I simply embossed my panel using the 3D folder then added all the beautiful Poppystamps dies .See how the panel looks like colored cardstock! Just ink blended around the edges.

11F94615-1E3C-41D2-A241-ADA450CC687B

I think this will be a St. Valentine card but it could be used for many occasions. The card above this one shows more of how pretty the shimmer is. Thank you for the visit today , I hope you are enjoying a beautiful week .

God bless you .

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.
