Blooming Thank You and Hello
by Tiffany Pryce

20210625_145825

Hey crafty friends! Today, I'm sharing how I combined color blocking and embossing folders. I wanted to see if I could use my embossing folder in a slightly different way for a new look. 

First, I selected four colors of cardstock and cut each piece down to 5.75 x 4.5 inches. This would be a great chance to create a monochromatic card or play with a unique color combo you've been meaning to try. I used the Sunny Orange paper pack and the Fresh Aqua paper pack for my two cards. I then created an A2 template from copy paper to map out my cut marks. You can create your template however you'd like, but I think the fewer lines, the easier it is to complete the final card panel.

Since the template is smaller than your cardstock, use a ruler to extend the lines so you know where to cut on each cardstock panel. I used temporary adhesive to glue two cardstock panels together so I could cut two panels together at one time.

Once your panels are cut, add adhesive to the template, select the pieces in the order you would like, and adhere to the template. Once all four color blocks are adhered together, run through the embossing folder using the instructions for your die cutting machine. I think creating the color block panel before running through the Blooming 3D Embossing Folder is much, much easier than embossing each piece of cardstock and then trying to piece it together. Ask me how I know, haha (the yellow panel was done the hard way)! After embossing, trim down the panel to an A2 size.

To finish the cards, I kept it pretty simple. For the blue panel, I lightly rubbed white pigment ink over the panel to add ink to the raised areas. I die cut a vellum circle from the Stitched Circle Layers die and die cut the Thank You Flourish die four times from white cardstock. Finally, I added several Fairy Drops for a little shine.

For the yellow panel, I trimmed it down to slightly less than an A2 card. I lightly rubbed gold pigment ink over the panel to add ink to the raised areas. Then, I die cut the Hello Folksy Script die three times from white cardstock and once from gold foil cardstock from the Polished Foil paper pack. I adhered the sentiment with foam tape on top of a simple wreath made from the Garden Leaves and Berries die.

Tickled Pink
by Nancy Penir

When I compose a card, it's usually with a purpose in mind, like a birthday, or get well. Hi there Poppy friends! Nancy here, and I've got a fun Whittle card for you today, with a technique using embossing folders and ink pads.

The embossing folder is brushed with ink, either using the ink pad directly or with a brush. Direct application of the ink pad gives it a richer more vibrant color. It's your choice as to what you want the background to look like. Soft or vibrant. Then the paper is inserted in the ef, and run through the machine.

This card was done with the ink pad.

I took this picture outside, which gives a better color representation. I love how the wave crests stay white.

Indoors, lighting is always tricky. The colors seem softer.

Poppystamps embossing folders are amazing! Deep and textured, you can see the waves and how they roll. 

Hope you try this technique, if you haven't already. Lots of embossing folders to choose from in the shop right now.

Happy Crafting!

Berry Red Happy Birthday
by Marybeth Lopez

Hi there! Marybeth Lopez  here today, channeling my inner Jeanne :)  I loved using the memory box Berry Red paper pad collection all on one card. In case you didn't know this paper is 110 lb. cardstock . I always seem to use the pink pad. 

 When I layered the " Poppystamps Happy Birthday Poe Script" die I was going to use only foil and then decided I wanted white with only a bit of the gold showing. I Love how that turned out.... I just adhered the white die-cut  and slid it down and to the left  . What do you think? I love the look of just a bit of gold showing.

I cut all my paper 1/2 in. strips, I then used my tape runner and added tape to the card then started placing my strips down on a slant. After all the strips were adhered I trimmed my panel down.  I am sure glue is used most but this tape lets me pick up and reposition just a bit more.

I am pretty happy with the fun color strips background. I wanted the background  to stand out and not conflict with the beautiful blooms, all linked below.

The blooms are called Wild Rose Stem from memory box.

Thinking About You Always
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps DT 5.31.21 1

 

Happy Memorial Day! Hope you are all enjoying the holiday.  Today, I am back on the blog showcasing a bright and cheery card using the Woven Basket Pop Up Easel set that released in early spring. This basket die is perfect for Easter and any occasion.  Although this die makes a Pop Up Easel card, the basket image can be used on its own to create a great focal image for an A2 size card. 

Poppystamps DT 5.31.21 2

The Basket die comes with several greenery pieces that I used along with the flower dies from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set. I also used the butterfly die from this set and some of the greenery pieces to complete the full floral basket. The centers of the flowers were embellished with some white nuvo drops for added dimension. 

Poppystamps DT 5.31.21 3

To add a bit of interest to the card I sponged on some Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink in the background.  The sentiment comes from the Greeting Basics stamp set and I used one of the sentiment frame dries from the Christmas Quotes stamp and die set to cut of the sentiment to adhere it to the basket with foam tape. 

Poppystamps DT 5.31.21 4

There is  a ton of dimension on this card and I absolutelylove it.  From the layered flowers and greenery to the layered basket pieces and butterfly, this basket image jumps off the card with so much texture. I hope you've enjoyed today's cardshare and found inspiration. 

Until next time...happy crafting. Candice Floral Signature copy

In My Thoughts - Challenge Reminder
by Tiffany Pryce

20210402_141144

Hi everyone! Tiffany here with a reminder of this month's challenge. We're celebrating spring with a walk in the garden so we're asking you to share our love of nature and add a butterfly or flower to your project. All types of projects are welcome, but please make sure to include at least one Poppystamps product. Read more details about this month's challenge on the blog.

For some inspiration, I created a simple sympathy card that I gifted to a friend. I wanted to keep the design thoughtful and simple, but with pops of soft color. I started by die cutting an A2 piece of cream cardstock with the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate die. I adhered it to an A2 card base made from heavyweight, white cardstock. The pinpoint detail adds subtle texture to any background, and reminded me of sun rays which worked nicely with the card's theme.

Next, I created my border. I die cut the Leafy Garden Border die from yellow and orange cardstock from the Sunny Orange paper pack. I layered the yellow die cut on top of the orange and offset it to allow the orange to peek out.

For the butterflies, I used the Intricate Cut Butterflies dies to die cut three different sizes of butterflies. With each butterfly, I die cut it three times - twice out of white cardstock, and once from DIY glossy cardstock I created. I made the cardstock by heat embossing satin white embossing powder on white cardstock. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue only in the middle where the body would be so the wings would have volume. For extra detail, I added gold nuvo drops to mimic the butterfly's body.

Lastly, I gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Diamond Sentiments stamp set on a piece of vellum. I used a very thin layer of glue that I carefully spread with my finger to adhere the vellum to the card front. This very thin layer was not visible through the vellum.

Hope you are inspired to join us in this month's challenge. Happy crafting!
