To make the pattern pop, I have used a very old white ink pad, just swiped over the embossing with ink,  it is a firm cloth material! so perfect for doing this technique.

Diamond Sentiments

Happy Tuesday! Have you seen the new spring release for Poppystamps yet? If you haven’t stop by the store here to check it out!

I’m using the new Diamond Sentiments stamp and die set for this quick and simple card. I took the leafy frame image and white heat embossed it on vellum. After I die cut it I used a white pencil crayon to add shading to some of the leaves on the back side of the vellum.

There are so many wonderful sentiments in this stamp set and I gold heat embossed one of them in the centre of the diamond frame. The great thing about this leafy frame is that you can use it horizontally or vertically on your projects and the sentiments can fit either way as well.

The plaid paper I used on my card base is from the new Madras Plaid Coral & Green Paper Pack. I’m absolutely smitten with the colours and patterns in this pad and the companion pad Madras Plaid Blue & Violet. I really like how you can see the plaid colours and design through the vellum focal piece.

I added a bit of sparkle with the Happy Birthday sentiment die cut from the new Graceful Garden Glitter Paper Pad and finished off with a few gold gems.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and have a great week!

Greetings my Poppy friends! I have a card to share with you today featuring a few of the new items in the shops.

Have you ever tried the Open Studio embossing folders? Talk about dimension... They're extra deep allowing you to play with texture and color. The card I made is really very simple. I ran my folder through my machine (be very careful, allowing for the extra thick folder, adjustments may be necessary), and used sponge daubers and oxide inks to apply color to the lifted flowers and leaves. I used a lighter hand, blending colors, and trying not to go out of the lifted image.

I used the Simple Leaf Heart Split Border from last year, also colored with my oxide inks, and lifted the panel with foam.

The heart window frames a few of blooms.

Like I said, the dimension on these or any of the embossing folders is amazing! 

Hope you're inspired to try your favorite technique with them.

You Made My Day
by Sue McRae

Happy Tuesday everyone! Sue here with a slimline card. It’s actually my first attempt at a slimline card and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. It’s a fun size to try different card design ideas. My slimline card measures 3.5” x 8.5” and can fit into a #10 business envelope.

20210206_133200c

I decided to make a colourful background with pieces of scrap cardstock that I cut into a variety of widths. I played around with the colours until I was happy, applied adhesive to the card base and adhered the strips.

Next I took the largest Whittle Circles Frame and die cut it 9 times from grey cardstock and adhered 3 frames together to create one thicker frame. I offset each layer when I adhered it because I like the dimension and depth it added to the frame.

Did you know there are some new animal friends that were added to the Whittle Family? I used three of the newest animals, the Squirrel, Sloth and Papa Hedgehog on my card. I die cut them from white cardstock and added them inside the wreaths. They are so cute!

20210207_084525c

I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set and finished off with a few gems.

This card makes me happy with its rainbow background and adorable critters and the slimline size was perfect for this design.

Big Hedgehog

Hi there crafty friends, hope you are all having a good week. Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Have you started on your Valentine's Day cards? If  not, today's project share may be the perfect inspiration to get you in the craft room to make a card or two. 

IMG_3098

To create this card, I began with creating my background image. I stenciled red hearts onto a piece of 5 x 7 inch white cardstock with the Memory Box Drifting Hearts Stencil and some Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink. 

IMG_3100

Next I cut the stenciled background with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die. Then adhered both the frame and the inside piece to a 4.25 x 5.5 top folding black note card with some liquid adhesive. 

IMG_3101

Then I die cut the Big Hedgehog Left and Big Hedgehog Right images from both a kraft and dark chocolate colored cardstock. I removed the hedgehog's main from the kraft die cut piece by fussy cutting the image with my paper snips. Then adhered the fussy cut kraft image onto the dark chocolate image with some liquid adhesive. 

Next I die cut a large heart image from some vellum cardstock, then adhered the heart and both paper pieced hedgehogs onto the stenciled heart background with some foam tape. Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock with some white embossing powder. I then attached the sentiment strip to card with some foam tape.

And there you have it, your card is done! I hope you enjoyed today's project share and found inspiration to make your own Valentine's Day cards. Until next time, happy crafting!

You're Pandastic
by Sue McRae

20210103_152333c

Happy New Year crafters! Sue here with my first post of 2021. Today I have a colourful and cute card to start off your week.

I started by taking alcohol inks and making a background that I used to die cut the Confetti Heart Plate from. I adhered the panel to my card base and stamped the hugs sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set inside some of the hearts and added a few XO’s as well.

20210103_145829c

I die cut the panda from pearl card stock and coloured in the black sections with a marker. And of course I had to add googly eyes!

The Stitched Envelope is such a handy little die, perfect for adding visual interest to a card and great for having things like flowers, leaves or any of the Whittle Critters pop out of.

20210103_152439c

The sentiment was white heat embossed and added to the front of the envelope and I added a few sequins for a little sparkle.

20210103_152401c

You could easily make this a Valentine’s Day card since heart dies and stamps can be used all year long to show someone how much you care!

Wishing you a wonderful crafty week!
