Dancing Leaves

Are you about done with summer? Looking forward to Autumn? Cooler weather, changing of the leaves, and hopefully closer to a Covid vaccine...

I'm showing a new die from Poppy, in the shop now, and so sweet I just had to share!

It's called, Maple Symphony, and here's a look at how I used it to create my Autumn greeting card.

When you die cut the panel, the leaves are easily separated. I used my oxide inks to color them.

I added drops of ink and white paint. I even think just leaving the solid color behind the leaves is gorgeous. I just love how oxide ink colors blend together, so I played a bit with colors.

The sentiment is versamarked onto a Heat Resistant Acetate, as I wanted to see the leaves behind the words.

Is it blazing hot where you live? We routinely have 100+ in my valley, great for ripening fruit, but not for keeping a garden alive! Hope you found some 'cool' inspiration today. The  Maple Symphony die is available in Poppy's store now (together with some new Christmas dies). I'm sure a release/giveaway is around the corner!

Stay well and safe my friends! Hugs!

August Challenge Reminder
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a reminder post about Poppystamps August Challenge, Heat Wave, which can incorporate all sorts of ideas like summer, heat embossing and hot colours.

I decided to use hot colours and heat embossing on my shaker card.

I started by stenciling the Midnight Mandala Stencil onto white card stock with Distress Oxide Inks.

I cleaned off  the stencil, taped it back in place over my design and applied glass bead glitter gel over top. Make sure to wash your stencil and tools right away before the gel hardens or else you'll need a chisel to clean everything! The gel is milky when wet and dries to a clear sparkly finish!

I die cut the largest Stitchwork Square Frame in red and added clear acetate and foam tape along the back to create my shaker box. I used a double layer of foam because the glitter gel has some height to it and I wanted to make sure there was going to be room for the sequins to shaker around.

For the shaker elements I used clear sequins and seeds beads in colours that matched the inks.

I attached this onto a white card base and white heat embossed the sentiment onto black card stock and added it to the front of my card.

Now it's your turn to join the August Challenge. You have all month to play along and a winner will be randomly chosen to win a $20 gift certificate to the Poppystamps online store! I can't wait to see what you create!

Happy Crafting!

Hello! How about a super, summery, simple post today? Using a few dies, and a card panel I had in my stash, this card came together in a jiffy.

The watering can is popped up, and my hello sentiment was cut from both white and dark green, creating a shadow effect. 

Are you having a crafty week? Try making an all die cut card. Quick, easy, and packs an impact! Stay well my friends!

Garden Border and Butterflies
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-4

Good Morning Friends and Welcome Back! I am stopping by today with a fun birthday card to share with you all. Although I created a birthday card, this same card can be used for many different occasions by just chasing the sentiment. Let's get started, shall we?

SavingPNG

I started my card by ink blending Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade onto a piece of cardstock. I then ran the cardstock through my die cutting machine with the Leafy Garden Border Die. Don't you just love the detail this die creates. I also ink blended my card panel (background) with Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass.

Next, I ink blended Distress Oxide Ink in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet onto small squares of cardstock. I then ran them through my die cutting machine with the Intricate Cut Butterflies Die Set.

SavingPNG-3

For my sentiment, I used the Birthday Blowout Stamp Set. I stamped Happy Birthday directly onto my Leafy Garden Border and then attached everything to my A2 card base. Lastly, I added a few sparkling clear jewels to finish my card.

Thanks for joining me today! I also wanted to let you all know that this will be my last post as a member of the PoppyStamps Design Team. I have decided to step down at this time. I want to Thank everyone on the PoppyStamps team for their generosity and amazing support. I will forever be their customer and fan.

Hedge-Hugs
by Jeanne Jachna

Hedge-Hugs-Three

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you're staying safe and healthy!  Today I'm sending you hedge hugs with this simple card with lots of details!

Hedge-Hugs-Three

This card starts with a Distress Oxide inked panel of Spun Sugar, Candied Apple, and Mustard Seed.  The creamy pigment ink is easy to blend for quick coverage.  The panel is topped with the Meadowblossom Frame die cut.   The panel is slightly smaller than an A2 size card so the inky edges of the panel can peek from behind.

Hedge-Hugs-One

I added a Luscious Script Hugs in the middle of the heart with a simple sentiment from the Valentines Fairies stamp set.   I adhered it to the card with adhesive foam tape so it is raised from the base of the card.

Hedge-Hugs-Three
I cut a Whittle Hedgehog from white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I colored the entire image in light violet (BV00) and then added a little cheek blush and color to the ear with R01.  Finally I added highlights to the fur and nose with BV04).  I tucked him in under the hugs sentiment.  
Hedge-Hugs-Three

The finishing touch is the addition of colorful jewels to the flower centers.  I love the extra sparkle and shine. 
Hedge-Hugs-Three

Hedge-hugs and love to you!  Have a great day!
