All the Happiness

Poppystamps 9.29.21 1.

Hello there crafty friends! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today I am coming on the blog to share with you this beautiful floral card using products from our sister company, Memory Box. 

I am in need of a few thank you cards; so I decided to pull out this large 6x9 stamp set called All the Happiness from Memory Box to make a set of mini slim line cards. In addition to the floral stamp set, today's card, also uses the Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim sheets,  Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die set,  and the Joyful Moments stamp set for my sentiment.

Mini slim line cards are just as popular as the regular sized slim line cards. They measure 6.25 inches long by 7 inches wide and are scored at 3.5 inches. Mini slim line cards make great note cards and can easily fit a security business sized envelope.

To begin, I stamped the floral image in Versamark ink onto a scrap pieces of white card stock and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detailed gold embossing powder. Next I took my Copic Markers and colored the floral image, then die cut the image using the coordinating die from the stamp set.

Next, I die cut the stitched rectangle from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock. Since this die cuts a thin stitched frame. I paired the gold frame from the gold card stock with the inner piece of the frame cut from the white card stock. I sponged on some Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink onto the white panel, then stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Moments stamp set in Versafine Onyx ink.

Next, I trimmed the patterned paper to 6.25 inches x 3.5 inches and adhered it to my mini slim line card base with liquid adhesive. I then added the sentiment panel and the flowers to the card with 3M foam tape. Lastly I embellished the card with some gold metallic pearls from my stash.

 I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. I also hope that you will try making a slim line card for your next project. Until next time....Happy Crafting.

Fall Thanks
by Nancy Penir

Greetings friends! Nancy here, and I have a thank you slim line card today, just perfect for the season!

DSC_0019

Blended some Distress Oxides in warm fall tones, then spritzed them with water, and white paint. My slim panel is 3 1/2 x 8 1/2.

This was the perfect width to fit the Maple Symphony die, cut twice vertically.

The dark lining adds drama to shadow my leaves.

The leaves were color reversed before gluing them down, a little off to allow the dark to show behind the leaves.

I love double cutting my sentiments before adding to the card. A bit more work but worth it!

The finished card looks more dimensional, but is actually flat... very easy to mail!

I added a bit of Nuvo Glimmer Paste brushed onto each leaf.

Just a very light application for a little wow.

Our parent company Memory Box has created an exclusive set called True Friend.  It's a beautiful floral set with coordinating sentiments of friendship.

I colored the floral with Copic Markers.  To make it the focal point of my design I created two borders to frame the floral.  First I cut the  Tall Curve Side Border twice from white cardstock.  I inked both panels with Distress Oxide in Seedless Preserves, Carved Pumpkin and Worn Lipstick.   I splatted the panels with water and then topped them with white die cut Reeded Deco Curve Borders.

A simple sentiment from the stamp set and a sprinkle of woodgrain sequins (Brutus Monroe) are the finishing touches.

Gilded Plate Thank You
by Jeanne Jachna

1c1

I'm loving the new cover plates you'll find in the Summer Theatre section of the Poppystamps on line store.  The deco look is elegant and artsy!

The cover panels are sized to cover an entire A2 card.  For this card I used the Gilded Plate Cover Panel.   I cut it from white card stock and layered it over a panel I inked with Distress Oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean,  Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron.  The creamy pigment inks blend beautifully and when used with cosmetic brushes look flawless.  And if you do have a few hard lines, don't worry!  A splash of water and some watered down ink cover any imperfections.

I topped the assembled panel with a the large Brilliant Ring from the three die set.  The solid die creates a focal point, breaking up the busy intricate background, for an image or simple sentiment .

1c3

To add a little more interest I inked the Thank You Poe Sentiment with Distress Oxide ink to coordinate with the inky background.    A few gold glitter enamel dots add some sparkle and shine.

I hope you'll try experimenting with different shades of distress ink to slide behind your pretty cover panels.   It just doesn't get better than this!

Welcome September!
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0020

A very grateful welcome to the month of September! And to all of you Poppy Peeps! Nancy here, and I have a very fall-ish card to start off the season of falling leaves, cooler weather, and our children returning to school! (Yay!)

DSC_0015_wm

So Very Thankful began it's life with Poppystamps' Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame, one of my all time favs!

DSC_0025

Yep! You're seeing right, I started with white cardstock. Also die cut my image from colored foam.

DSC_0028

The sidekick frame comes with a stencil which allows careful and selective coloring. I used my sponge daubers and oxide inks.

DSC_0024

The foam die cut really gives the image a lift. I added Nuvo Glimmer paste over the top colored die cut. Also you can see a few shadow leaves stamped in the sentiment frame. 

DSC_0016

Poppystamps has so many wonderful autumn dies and stamps in the shop. Hope you check out this sidekick frame and several others! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

A Summer Hug
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0026 2

I've been playing around with the slimline dies, Poppystamps has in the store, and love the Leafy Vines Slim Plate.

DSC_0013

My card today is for no one in particular, just a general 'Hugs' card. Who couldn't use a hug right now?

DSC_0018_wm

Lots of bright summer colors, and happy flowers to brighten someone's day!

DSC_0011

My cardstock began it's life in white, and was transformed with Distress Oxide Inks, blended. I did the reverse color combo before die cutting the leafy vine.

DSC_0017_wm

The Slimlines will fit any business size envelope, and mails with a regular stamp.

Hope you give a slimline a try, if you haven't attempted one yet. 

Have a wonderful week, hope it's crafty!
