Bright Blossoms

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 5.27

Hey there crafty friends, its Candice here, sharing with you another card design. 

Today's card is a one layer card featuring the Poppystamps Bright Blossoms Stencil. The large bloom from the Bright Blossoms stencil is a great focal image for an A2 size card.

To get started, I created a mask of the Image. To do this, you will need to trace the flower and leaf images in pencil onto a sheet of white card stock. Next, fussy cut the traced image with your scissors to create individual mask pieces of the design.

Now adhere the stencil to a clean 6x6 inch piece of white card stock using purple tape. Place each of your leaf masks back into the stencil with some repositionable tape.  With Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick, ink blend these colors on to the blooms of the stencil. The leaf masks you placed down earlier will prevent the pink ink from transferring to the leaf images on the design.

After coloring the blooms, remove the leaf masks from the stencil. Next place down your bloom masks on top of your coloring, then adhere the stencil back over your image with purple tape. With your Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide inks, ink blend these two colors onto each of the leave images of the stencil design. Apply the Peeled Paint ink first, then apply Crushed Olive ink on just the tips of the image to create depth and dimension.  After blending, remove the masks and stencil. The results are stunning.

Now with your Memory Box Texture Dot Grid stencil, or any tiny polk a dot stencil from your stash, adhere the stencil over your colored blooms and leaves using purple tape. With a light grey ink, I am using Stampin' Up Smokey Slate, ink blend the grey ink onto the open white spaces of your image to create the dotted background.

Next remove the stencil from the image and die cut the panel with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die.  You will be left with 2 separate pieces. A frame and the center focal image. Now die cut the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame again from a plain piece of 4.25 x 5.5. inch white card stock. Adhere the plain white frame to a turquoise A2 size card base.

Then add the center portion of the stenciled bloom image to the card based within the white border frame. With a 1.25 inch strip of vellum card stock, stamp with the sentiment "Sending heartfelt sympathy" in Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

Lastly adhere your vellum sentiment strip to the color stenciled card front with some adhesive tape runner. Embellish the card with a few pink enamel dots and your card is finished. I hope you've enjoyed today's card tutorial and found some great inspiration. 

Thank you for joining me today. Until next time, happy crafting!

Thanks, You Are The Best

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all are doing well. I am excited to be back with you all today to share a Thank You card. I am always needing a thank you card... so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get one made and hopefully share a little inspiration too. Let’s get started, shall we?

I started my card by creating my background. I used the Fractal Diamond Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in Black Soot. I sprayed the back of my stencil with Pixie Spray to hold it in place, and applied my ink directly onto my stencil and card panel in an even motion. I just love the detail of this stencil!

I set my background aside and began working on my Thanks layered sentiment. I began by glueing .25 inch strips onto a piece of thin copy paper in rainbow order.

Next, I ran the strips through my die cutting machine with the Thanks Outline shadow die.

Using the same Thanks Outline Die, I ran the top layer through my die cutting machine with white and black cardstock. I attached the two letters together, offsetting the black letter behind the white to create a shadow. Although the black shadow is a subtle detail, I think it helps my letters stand out a little more.

For my sentiment, I stamped You Are The Best from the You Are Awesome Stamp Set onto a black banner. I then added and heat set it with white embossing powder. This is such a great stamp set, it has the perfect sentiment for so many occasions.

To finish my card, I trimmed down my ink blended card panel and attached it to an A2 card base. Lastly, I attached my Thanks and sentiment banner to my card front with foam adhesive.

Thanks for joining me today! I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Enjoy your day,

Pop Up May Flowers
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Crafty Friends!

We have all heard that April showers bring May flowers, and we have all had a very rainy April, haven't we? So let's celebrate the little things with a few tiny May flowers on this Pop Up easel card! Have you TRIED this yet?

IMG_6897-wm

When I first saw this unique Adriana Pop Up Easel Set, I was so excited, but intrigued too! How does it work? I love seeing all the beautiful projects our design team is putting together, and once you try one for yourself, you be amazed at how easy it is to be creative!

IMG_6902-wm

Everything you need is in this beautiful 6 piece die set to create pop up easel designs that are so easy to pair with your favorite Poppystamps products. I used the Peek-a-Boo Bunny popping out of the Grand Watering Can, decorated with a few extra Orchard Leaves and a few flowers from the Floral Cluster. What would you create?

IMG_6896-wm

Every flower needs a sparkling center too, and thanks to this collection of Fairy Sugar Glitter Glue from Memory Box Open Studio, you can make the sparkly magic happen!

IMG_6894-wm

I cut the background easel pieces in white, and added the Orchard Leaves in green, and Floral Clusters for pops of color. The Peek-a-Boo Bunny was cut in white, and the Grand Watering Can was colored with Distress Oxide inks sprinkled with water.

Slide the top of the card back to reveal the hidden message inside! The Colwell Label Set pairs perfectly with the shapes from the Easel Set to create the perfect surprise greeting. The HUGS was cut with the Poetic Uppercase Alphabet.

Beautiful May days are on their way for all of us, so keep crafting, keep sharing, and keep being creative!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Summer Beach
by Marybeth Lopez

 Hello! Hope you will all be enjoying the sun and beaches soon . I decided to make a bit of a beach-y card today. Using Poppystamps : Whittle dies all linked below.

27CDBA9F-75F4-409B-899E-059471DE3F59

I made a small slit in the circle to slide the whale in for just a bit. I have two cut circles glued together for this card, wanted just a bit of layers but still very easy and flat to mail.

6B08D739-DAD3-44E3-A2E3-9BA8A504161D_1_201_a

After I die cut the little Whittle dies I used blender brushes to blend in my color with distressed oxide inks. One of my granddaughters had a beach panel she made while playing with the brushes so I decide to use what she already blended. I used the: Poppystamps Brilliant Rings ,  largest circle.

1F6E659B-E233-477A-BCD4-12F0A38F924C

I placed the die over the spot of panel that I used so you can see what it looked like . Little Bailey made such a beautiful beach panel..... I really hated to cut into it. 

 

03852A1F-98BC-4F9D-B7DF-11E4F81FFA36

After I was done I added a few more splatters, my granddaughter already added a few to her beach panel. 

E11BF30A-6C68-4D74-9479-CD3A68828C3E

The base panel is watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby called Masters Touch, many of you ask me.

I hope you are all able to get outside and hopefully things will soon be back to normal. ( as much as possible) I hope you have some time to craft. I've found it a great blessing to have this hobby even more now.

Hope you have a great weekend and Happy Mothers day to you in USA

Happy Memories
by Nancy Penir

Greetings Poppy Peeps! I have a card to share with you using a wonderful sentiment stamp set Poppystamps recently released. I've paired my card's sentiment with a few new stencils too.

DSC_0011

Stencils are a super quick way to set your cards up for maximum sentiment showcase.  I used Poppystamps' Romantic Blooms stencil, but only on the corners of my A2 sized card. You'll notice I applied my ink in several colors with a small sponge dauber, blending and fading outward from the center of the blooms.

DSC_0012

I chose the sentiment 'Thinking of You' from Friendship and Kindness. This set has multiple sentiments, great for the inside of cards as well. By taping part of the words, you can use 2 colors, which is just what I did.

Happy is embossed in rose gold, while the rest of the sentiment is stamped, all by alternately taping and stamping.

DSC_0022

You can see the embossed Happy, and the rest of the sentiment in this photo.

Notice how the stenciling fades around the greeting, allowing the words to be the stand out.

You can also add stenciling to your envelope flaps. An elegant touch of personalization for your cards!

Aside for the sequins, it's a one layer mailer. I think the best cards to send! 

Hope you found some inspiration today, and possibly a new way or two to use the new fabulous stencils in the shop! Stay well, friends!
