Maple Symphony
by Sue McRae

20200911_133108c

Happy Monday crafters! Sue here with my first autumn card of the season. We’ve had a hot summer in my area and now I’m grateful for the cooler weather. With the cooler weather comes the changing of the leaves, which are so pretty!

20200911_133125c

I started by taking white cardstock and applying Distress Inks in shades of blue. Then I heavily sprayed the panel with Perfect Pearls I mixed with water. I did not use my fine mister for this because I wanted to create texture on the background with a larger mix of droplets. Love the pearly shine!

I took this panel and ran it through my die cut machine with the Maple Symphony die which die cuts the maple leaves and the swirly lines. I put aside these leaves for a future project and adhered the panel onto the white card base.

I die cut the Maple Leaf Symphony once from white cardstock and once from black cardstock. The black leaves were inlaid onto the panel. The white leaves were inked up with more Distress Inks and when I adhered them down onto the panel I offset them a little bit so the black inlaid leaf below would show a little bit to give a shadow.

The sentiment is white heat embossed on black card stock and I added a black Double Stitch Rectangle Frame to finish off the card along with a sprinkling of gold gems.

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you have a great crafty week!

I cut a rectangle using Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies. Embossing folder/green ink & Brayer ..I find this gives a better coverage of ink.

Roses and Butterflies

Hello everyone! For today's card I've played with a couple of shimmery watercolor pigment powders and some Memory Box products.
Watermark1.597862898961E12

I first white heat embossed the flowers on watercolor cardstock.
Watermark1.597862898961E12

I carefully dabbed the colors on and spritzed with water. With a paper towel I dried off the edges and any spots that were too dark, but I didn't overdo the use of water because I feel the powders truly shine when the pigment is allowed to do it's own thing.

After it was completely dry I buffed off the color that was on top of the embossing powder.

I cut a piece of vellum to size and dry embossed it. I white heat embossed the sentiment on the same color cardstock I used for base. I first adhered the flower and sentiment to the vellum which allowed for glue on the back of the vellum. Here I'm trying to show you the shimmery galaxy like flowers.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Stay safe and crafty.

Thank You Rose
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters! It’s Friday and that means the weekend is almost here! I hope you’re planning on getting a little bit of crafty time in.

Today I have another easy card that can be made quickly for any occasion.

First I took some patterned paper and white heat embossed a flower from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set on it and cut it out.

DSCN0350c

I chose a pink card stock that matches the patterned paper and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Gracious Leaves Embossing Folder. Embossing is a great way to add visual interest and texture to a simple card design.

DSCN0351c

Next I die cut the Orchard Leaves from white card stock to add around the flower bloom. I like the texture that the cut lines on the leaves adds to the card.

The sentiments are from the same stamp set as the flower. I chose two complimentary sentiments and white heat embossed the thank you on black card stock and stamped the second sentiment with black on white card stock.

DSCN0358c

I assembled the card and added a sparkly gem to the flower centre.

DSCN0340-c

You can really change up the look of your card by your choice of patterned paper. The options are limitless!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

August Challenge Reminder
by Sue McRae

DSCN0303c

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.

68394179_2655431668016511_1269921559120707584_n

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

DSCN0279c

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

DSCN0286c

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!

DSCN0322c

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.

DSCN0313c

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.

DSCN0295c

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!

Multiple flower cards
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.595446684499E12

Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.

IMG_20200721_221955

First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.
IMG_20200721_221955

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.
IMG_20200721_221955

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.
IMG_20200721_221955

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.
IMG_20200721_221955

So there you have it. 5 quick cards for different occasions that are nice to have in your stash.

See you next time
