Wishing You a Merry Christmas
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0032

Hi Poppy Friends! I have a fun card for you today. Have you ever made a gatefold card? Here's a how to using Poinsettia Delights.

DSC_0009

With a  5 1/2 x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock, you're going to score at 2", and 6 1/2". The 2 sides will fold into each other, forming a card that's a standard A2. Now you can decorate any way you like. The 2 outside 'gates' and the inside were my focals.

DSC_0011

I cut an oval (the center die cut from Pointed Oval Frames) and placed it in the center of the card, inking around it, before stamping my sentiment. I then stamped poinsettias around the sentiment, masking the flowers, so they'd look more natural.

DSC_0013

Turning the card over, I stamped the smaller poinsettia, masking it before stamping the branch.

DSC_0015

I knew I wanted a bright red band, so I kept my stamped images all monotone grey.

DSC_0022

The red band was cut 11 1/2 x by 1 1/2", scored at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2", before folding and glueing the ends together. Stamped diecut  was copic colored and some stickles added to the center.

Finished card fits nicely inside a A2 envelope.

Hope this gave you an incentive to try a different fold when creating your cards. And hope your weekend's crafty!

Time Out Challenges
byJeanne Jachna

Pumpkin-Floral-Four

Do you love to play challenges?  We're sponsoring the Time Out Challenges #118.  That means if you play along there you could win a $20 gift certificate from Poppystamps.  You can double your chances of winning by playing along in our monthly challenge too because this month Anything Goes!  (You can find the current Poppystamps monthly challenge by clicking on the badge in the right column of this blog. 

Here's the Time Out Challenge this week:

45cd8e5fc9178106fbfb33f946da66e1

I started by cutting a Harvest Pumpkin die from orange card stock.  I added some distress ink around the bottom of the pumpkin to add some dimension.  Next I selected a Double Stitch Rectangle Frame that was large enough to frame the pumpkin base.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three

I inked up the negative inside of the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame with Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade and splattered it with  Carved Pumpkin.   I colored up a second piece of card stock with Carved Pumpkin to use as a matt behind the frame.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three

I stamped Peony Stems florals with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers.  I arranged the florals on a sheet of clear plastic to decide how they would be arranged before I adhered them in place.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three
I added a few extra leaves and a flower from a now retired stamp set to accent the pumpkin vase.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three

A simple sentiment is tucked in the upper corner of the frame.

I hope you find some time to play along at The Time Out Challenges Blog this week!

Tall Sketch Daisies
by Jeanne Jachna

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Four

Jeanne here today to remind you to play along with our monthly challenge that begins on the first of every month.  This time the challenge is to "Make A Splash"!  You can interpret this challenge lots of different ways - like using  a technique that requires water or making a beach or lake side scene.   What a great way to cool off during the August heat with a sweet crafty escape! 

08-18 copy
I made two cards with one die cut using the die cut images as well as the negative background.   To make my "splash"  I created two watercolor panels with distress ink (Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet).  I use the liquid ink refills as my paint.

 Tall-Sketch-Daisies-One

I cut the Tall Sketch Daisies from a white card stock panel.    I layered negative over one of the watercolor panels.

Tall-Sketch-Daisies

And I adhered the white die cut daisies on the second watercolor panel.  

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Two

Here's what they looked like before I finished them with sentiments. 

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Three

I created a window panel for the watercolor panel with the white die cut daisies.  I cut the panel with the Stitchwork Square Frames and added one on top to give it a finished look.
Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Five
I added a sentiment from Little Kindness and a sprinkle of gold Stitched Fluttering Butterflies!

Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Seven

For the card using the negative of the die cut daisies I added a Stitchwork Rectangle Frame and a Thanks Folksy Script sentiment cut from gold glitter paper.
Tall-Sketch-Daisies-Six
I sure hope you join us for our challenge!  The monthly prize is a $20 gift certificate awarded to  one random player.   It's a great way to see what your friends are making too!

Sending Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0040

Hi! Nancy here, and I have a card full of sparkle today!

DSC_0049

My card uses a few of Poppy's fabulous dies, and some sponge inking too. I'll show you how I created it.

DSC_0028

Once I have a basic card idea, I get all my diecuts ready. For the Blooming Rose, I inked a scrap of cardstock with Distress Ink  colors before cutting it out.

DSC_0030

I did the same with my tag.

DSC_0035

For the background, I cut the 2 largest frames from the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame set.

DSC_0041

This photo shows the sparkle when the light hits the card. Sentiment comes from Magic and Sparkle Clear Stamp set, and the sparkle is embossed with Stampendous Winter Wonderland. To help it stand out a bit, I used a colored pencil to hi-light the letters.

Hope you're inspired to give your card a bit of sparkle and shine. There are so many wonderful products out there.

Sprays, dry glitter, Stickles and Nuvo drops. Take your pick, and add some shiny goodness!

Summer Wishes
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5473-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so glad you could join us here on the Poppystamps blog today! Today I am sharing two versions of a sweet Summer card that features three different techniques. Some of you may be "old pros" at this, but for others, these simple techniques might be something you have always wanted to try, but never quite had the time. These hot, humid summer days are the perfect time to add a new spin to your stamping!

IMG_5471-wm

I used the pretty Peony Stems and Blossom clear polymer stamps to create the same card design using two different easy breezy techniques. The first card was colored with copic markers, and the second card was painted with pearlescent watercolors available at most craft stores. 

IMG_5460-wm

Each card began the same way. After cutting out a card base panel, I then cut the Best Wishes Folksy Script in pretty shiny silver foil, and arranged the stamps and the sentiment in the pattern I was going to stamp on my paper. I thought I would add a lot more leaves and vines that would sort of "tumble" down the page, but I decided that pretty peony made a beautiful focal point and kept the design simple.

IMG_5463-wm

I stamped the flowers in silver ink, one image at a time, then covered the image with silver embossing powder, shook off the excess powder, then heated the image until the silver powder turned into a firm and shiny outline. Both cards were created the same way.

IMG_5465-wm

Once the image was completely dry, I colored the flowers with a few copic markers. You don't need a lot of markers to create pretty images with a little bit of shading. Whatever you try will look bright and beautiful!

IMG_5467-wm

Once my flowers were colored with the copics, I glued the card to the folded base, added the Best Wishes Folksy Script, and finished it off with a few sequins. I then painted my second card with watercolor paints, let them dry, and finished the card in the same way. Two different cards, with two very different looks!

IMG_5469-wm

You may be new to embossing, copics, or watercolors, but Poppystamps images are all so adorable and sharp that it's easy to experiment, even for beginners! Give it a try and show us what you create!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Daisy Frame Notepad Holder & Handmade Notepad
by Jennifer Svare

Daisy Notepad1

Hello!  I've been having so much fun with the Daisy Frame from the new release!  Today I'll share how I made a notepad holder from clear acetate, along with a notepad made from gingham paper from Birchpress Design.  

Daisy Notepad Padding Compound

The gingham papers are perfect for this project.  They are gorgeous, light colors with a perfect thickness; not too heavy and not too light.  This makes it even easier to make notepads that look sharp.  I had no idea how simple padding compound is to use, and I'll show how to use it in the video below.

The notepads were made using an assortment of paper colors, so each time a page is used, the color of the next piece is revealed through the clear acetate, creating different looks!

Daisy Notepad Colors

Here's a full tutorial video on how to make these fun notepads and holders:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Daisy Frame Hello
by Jeanne Jachna

Daisy-Frame-Hello-Two
Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a beautiful day!  Today I'm sharing a card made with the new Daisy Frame die.  
Daisy-Frame-Hello-One
The die is cut from white card stock and layered over a distress ink covered panel.  I wanted to put yellow where the flowers would be, green for the leaves, and blue skies in the center.  I started by inking the center with Tumbled Glass distress ink.  To avoid lines I inked the center with a stencil brush.  It lightly applies the ink so it takes a while to get good coverage.   I inked up the floral areas with Squeezed Lemonade from the outer edges.  Next I added Twisted Citron between the yellow corners.  It's always start with the lightest color and then add the darker shade gradually.  It's easier to add a little more color than to try to remove it later!
Daisy-Frame-Two
A Folksy Hello Script die made a simple sentiment, and a scatter of Stitched Fluttering Butterflies cut from gold glitter paper adds some sparkle and shine.
Daisy-Frame-Three
I added a Stitchwork Square Frame to give the card a finished look.
Daisy-Frame-Hello
I hope you find some time to create today!
