Today, I'm sharing how I made my sample from yesterday's hop. I featured a mash up of products from the whole Birch Press Designs family, including the new Poppystamps Ornament Background die. To start, I embossed a panel of white cardstock with the new Ringadings 3D Embossing Folder from Memory Box. I matted it with a piece of red cardstock.

Next, I die cut white cardstock with the Ornament Background die twice for added dimension. I adhered the background die cuts together with spray adhesive. I also die cut pieces of an alcohol ink panel that I had in my stash from just the ornament portion of the die. I did not have a large alcohol ink panel, so cutting it into pieces to fit what I wanted to die cut helped save paper. To create the alcohol ink panel, I just blended a variety of green alcohol inks together with a lot of isopropyl alcohol and ink splatters for texture. I inlayed the ornaments in place with liquid glue. To finish the ornaments, I shaded the tops with copic markers - C1, C3, and C5.

Lastly, I embellished the card with holiday foliage, berries and a sentiment. I die cut several leaves from various green cardstock with the Memory Box Pine Needle Trio die and the Poppystamps Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel. I die cut the berries from an alcohol ink panel that I created with red and pink inks. The sentiment is one I use frequently. It is the Joy Honey Script die from Birch Press. I die cut it from two layers of white cardstock and once from red foil from the Polished Foil Paper pad. I attached the completed card front to a side-folding, A2 card base.

Snowflake Shaker Card
by Sue McRae

20211008_141649c

Happy Tuesday crafters! Sue here with my first Christmas card of the season using products from the new Holiday 2021 release. There’s lots of amazing dies, stamps, paper and embellishments available for your holiday cards. Check them out here.

I created a shaker card using the Snowflake Corner Frame die cut from gorgeous black glitter cardstock that has flecks of blue and purple in it. It is so sparkly in person, the camera doesn’t capture all its shimmery goodness. You must run out and buy this paper pad along with the two other ones in this release. They are so pretty!

I created an inky background for the frame with purple Distress Oxide Inks.

Then splattered the background with inks and paint.

I added white, silver and iridescent shaker bits to keep it light.

I mounted the frame onto a white card base that I embossed with the Stunning Mandala 3D Embossing Folder. The frame hides a good portion of the design but I love all the texture and detail that you can see peeking out around the edges.

I debated whether or not to add a sentiment and decided to go with a small one tucked in the corner. I used a leftover piece from the inked background for this.

To add a bit more glam and glitz I added Fairy Gemstones and Jewels to the snowflake centres.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Let me know if you’ve started making your Christmas cards yet.

Have a great week!

Poppystamps 9.30.21

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here back on the blog with another Copic coloring card using the Memory Box All the Happiness Stamp and die set. This large 6x9 stamp set comes with two gorgeous floral blooms that are perfect for coloring. Each stamp has a coordinating die for you to cut out the flowers. 

Today I am using the larger floral from the stamp set to make another mini slimline card. I absolutely love Black and White. These are my two my favorite colors of the rainbow. Yes I know, Black is the absence of color and white is technically not a color, but I am a sucker for black and white anything. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.3

To make this card, I began by stamping the floral image with my Gina K Almagam ink. This ink is black and bold and perfect for using with Copic Markers. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.4

I colored the red petals of the flowers with R37,R35 and R32. I always start with the darkest marker first then move to my medium shade (i.e. R35) then finally blending everything with the lightest shade (i.e. R32). The leaves are colored with G29, G28, and G07 for the darker petals and the two lighter leaves are colored with YG06 and YG00. The centers of the flowers are colored with Y15 and Y13. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.2

Coloring to me is very therapeutic. I will admit most of my cardmaking features heavily die cut cards, but at times, I do like to pull out my Copic markers to make a very colorful card. The background of the card was made with 1 inch black and white strips of cardstock that I adhered to my slim line card base with liquid adhesive. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.5

I die cut the floral image with the coordinating die from the set and adhered it to the card with liquid adhesive. The sentiment comes from the Memory Box Joyful Moments stamp set that was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I embellished the card with my new favorite metallic pearls.

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and have found inspiration. Until next time crafty friends....Happy Crafting!

Crystal Lingo
by Sue McRae

20210925_160108c

Happy Monday crafters! I have two colourful cards today using the Crystal Lingo stamp set.

I started by heat embossing the cool geometric slim line rectangle shape twice in clear embossing powder on watercolour paper.

20210923_125255c

To ink the designs I took my Distress Inks and just swiped and smooshed them onto the panels. One panel was done in rainbow colours, the other in green, aqua and blue. I then liberally sprayed each piece with water and let it dry on its own.

20210925_160258c

For the rainbow card I die cut the Marzipan Alphabet from black cardstock to create the word because. I like the fun shapes of these letters and the added cut lines the dies create for each letter. It’s a great detail and adds texture to the letters. It is kind of hard to see this on the black cardstock.

20210925_160324c

To finish off this card I stamped the sentiment and added a bunch of Fairy Jewels that match the Distress Inks perfectly.

20210925_160157c

For the birthday card I stamped the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock and coloured the letters with two shades of yellow Copics. There are matching dies for the sentiments making it quick to get a close cut for the words. To finish off this card I added clear Fairy Drops.

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

Seasons Change
by Janet Katz

Fallcard1name

Happy fall, everyone! Cooler weather is just beginning to creep into central Texas and I’m here for it. For my first project as a new design team member, I wanted to design a slimline card, which typically measures 3.5” x 8.5” when folded. I started with the lovely Soaring Tree Frame cut from kraft cardstock. 

I used gold, burgundy, and rust cardstock with the Floral Cluster die, cutting off the tiny leaves on the edges and adhering them to the tree. Next, I die cut the adorable Pile of Pumpkins (I adore pumpkins!) from some deep orange cardstock.

IMG_2093
I knew I wanted a snowy background and the Snowspeckle Washi Tape worked perfectly. I’d never worked with washi tape this wide, and found it easiest to adhere the leading edge of the tape to my plastic table top and then unroll it. This way I could measure what I wanted and get a smooth application by just putting my cardstock onto the sticky side.

I used a medium blue cardstock and cut the washi-covered piece down to just fit behind the tree. I used the same blue for the card base. I used a plain circle die to create the green hill, and then I swiped Versamark ink on the tops of pumpkins, the hill, and in one area of the tree. I heat embossed with white embossing powder to give it the look of snow. I went over a few more branches with a white gel pen.

I adhered all these pieces together along with the washi-covered background, and then used my same fall-colored cardstock to die cut Orchard Leaves. I cut apart these to make a nice variety of leaves for the card front. I used foam adhesive tape to pop up the snowy scene and added a computer printed sentiment. I hope you enjoyed this card, and I hope the beauty and cooler temperatures of fall are waiting just outside your front door.

Best Wishes

Hey crafty friends! Tiffany here with some more fun, fall inspiration for you. I made this simple, colorful card using only a few Poppystamps products. I started my card by stamping and gold heat embossing the main image from Diamond Sentiments stamp set on watercolor paper. I watercolored the image with some watercolor brush markers in my stash in an array of autumnal colors.

20210915_155745

While my watercolored image was drying, I worked on the die cuts. I wanted to make the leaves and foliage look more lush, so I decided to use the Leafy Garden Border die. I ink blended several panels of cardstock with a variety of distress oxide inks and die cut the panels multiple times with the border die. I added splatters of leftover watercolor on the leaves for some subtle detail. Once dry, I trimmed each die cut in half and arranged it behind the focal image. After I arranged the leaves, I used Press'n Seal to pick everything up, add glue and adhered it to a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack.

Inside the diamond, I stamped one of the sentiments in the Diamond Sentiment stamp set in Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink. To bring in some more gold, I gold heat embossed the edges of a piece of white cardstock. I simply pressed my sticky embossing ink directly to the paper and ran it along the four sides. It was not perfect and that was ok because I wanted a distressed look to match the card. I adhered everything to an A2-sized card base, added a few fairy jewels, and that's it! Hope you enjoyed the card and found some inspiration!
