Summer birthday

Hello everyone! Can you believe it's July? The last 4 months feel more like years. Right? It's officially summer though and we can at least enjoy the wonder of flowers. So today I have a dry embossed, watercolored card for you.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I started by applying ink to the inside of the embossing folder. I used Distress ink, since they're easy to clean. I spritzed a bit of water, wiped off the flower part as best I could, and laid the watercolor cardstock on top. I then ran it through my die cutting machine. Make sure you follow directions for your machine, these are thick embossing folders.

I first heat set the ink with my heat tool and then applied a dark yellow ink - pad directly to paper - over the sunflower. Notice that I got some yellow into the blue background. I'll cover that later. With a waterbrush I carried some of the ink to the rest of the petals. I again made sure it was completely dry before lightly running over my embossing ink. I did get more ink on than planned, but I had just reinked my pad. So that's something to keep in mind. I added a clear  glittery embossing powder and heat set that. Then I used my finger to dab embossing ink to the middle of the flower and applied an embossing powder that's a mix of gold, silver and copper. Watermark1.593510977832E12

I then cut my scallopped frame and placed over the sunflower. Here I've already cut off a couple of corners but you can still see that it's quite off set. I adhered the flower and frame to a white cardbase.

I cut a couple of butterflies and a happy birthday sentiment from glitter cardstock. I absolutely love this teal color and it's the perfect contrast to the yellow flower.

I adhered the sentiment cuts and then played around with placing the butterflies strategically to cover my ink pad mistakes from earlier. I didn't cover all of them, but most.

So there you have my sparkly flower card, and in case you missed it the challenge theme this month is Glim and Glam - add some sparkle.

See you next time. In the meantime, happy crafting!

Stenciling with Embossing Paste
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0086_wm

Greetings Poppy Peeps! Have you seen all the new stencils in the Poppystamps store? I'm here to show you a favorite way to use stencils. Maybe new to you, maybe a refresher. Hope it inspires you to use your stencils more. 

DSC_0052

Poppystamps Leafy Jumble Stencil is a fun all over leaf pattern. I did 3 panels with this stencil using metallic silver embossing paste. 

DSC_0049

I chose this panel and made 2 cards. First covering the card with Distress Inks, then laying down the stencil and sweeping on the paste with a craft knife. Now comes the hard part... waiting for it to dry! 

DSC_0072

I picked the spot which showed the most overall blend of color and cut my circle. 

DSC_0075

2 cards with one panel, this one will be a standard A2 card.

DSC_0078_wm

The circle was used inside this 5 x 5 square card.

DSC_0080_wm

All product will be listed below. Because this is a square, I love to create my own envelopes to go with it.

DSC_0094

So easy with a 1 2 3 Punchboard. And a great way to use up extra 2 sided paper from your stash! If you're like me, that stash is endless!

DSC_0085_wm

My A2 shaker card all set to send hugs to someone special.

DSC_0086_wm

And 2 hugs cards with one panel!

Hope you take a good long look at the stencils available now in the Poppystamps shop. And hope you were inspired to try a little paste with them! So many fun ways to enjoy crafting, aren't there? Have a great week!

Hi there,Marybeth here today sharing a bit of how I made this very simple card, made with Poppystamps : Happy Birthday Stitched Tag and Intricate Cut Butterflies. For a  chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Poppystamps store, all you have to do is make a clean and simple card .

57FB5067-1CE6-4F94-9C37-530D7FD4163E

PSC#69 Clean and Simple  This month we're looking for projects that are Clean and Simple.    Clean and Simple is a style - it's typically defined by lots of clean white space,  limited embellishments and layers, and one main image.  The card should be easy to recreate and make multiples of and Just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!

I used the Intricate Cut Butteries for this card , I took a picture of different butterflies but done the same.  I cut a few butterflies at a time from memory box , patterned paper called: Garden Folly, I can select the ones I like. I also like to layer them with the white layer on the bottom

4305A734-AD0C-4FDD-95BE-C2FEF35F095F_1_201_a

I love the Gracious Leaves embossing folder!

79F674F0-3693-4AB2-A25D-7AC1D33D96EC_1_201_a

I only used the "Happy Birthday" without the tag this time. I think the double layers of butterflies gives a bit of movement to the card.

Take care , hope you have a blessed week!

Cherry Blossom Wreath
by Sue McRae

IMG_1466c

Welcome to another day of crafty goodness at Poppystamps! Sue here today with the amazing Cherry Blossom Stamp and Die Set.

The Cherry Blossom wreath is large, it measures just a smidge over 5.25" across and takes up a full card front. I really wanted this wreath to be the star of the card so I used the entire image.

IMG_1452c

I heat embossed the wreath in gold sparkle embossing powder on watercolour paper and used Zig Real Brush Markers in some vibrant shades for watercolouring. 

IMG_1457c

I die cut the wreath and adhered it to a 5.25" striped blue paper from the Springtime Bouquet Stripes & Dots Paper Pad with foam squares.

I searched through my stash for a small and simple sentiment to stamp in the centre of the wreath.

IMG_1471c

Next I took the Holiday Mistletoe die and die cut it several times from vellum to tuck around the outside and inside of the wreath. This adds texture and more depth to the card. Remember to look through your holiday dies as they can be adapted for card designs all year long.

IMG_1460c

As my final step I adhered the wreath panel to a 5.5" white square card base. 

IMG_1450c

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
