Spread your wings and fly

Hello everyone! All good things must come to an end and today I'm sharing my last card for Poppystamps as I chose to step down from the design team due to personal reasons. Butterflies to me symbolise change and growth, so it absolutely fits just right. It wasn't until after I made this card that I thought of the funny coincidence, that I used the Beautiful butterflies sidekick frame on my first card for Poppystamps as well. You can check it out here

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.

The butterfly frame I covered with the coordinating stencil and lightly ink blended a bit of Distress ink over the butterflies. As I assembled the card I didn't like the white frame, so I ended up ink blending the whole frame.

I layered the 3 frames only adding glue to the frames, not stems, flowers or butterflies. I thought it would make it look more airy. I then stamped a sentiment and cut out butterflies from glitter cardstock with the coordinating (and included) butterfly die.

I adhered them with a dot of glue just to the centre of the butterflies for a bit of dimension. Just look at that sparkle.

That's it from me guys, it's time for me to spread my wings and fly. I enjoyed creating with these wonderful dies and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. I'll still be making cards so do stop by my blog or Instagram, I'd sure love to see you!

Brick House Easel Card
by Sue McRae

20200822_115816c

Happy Monday crafters! I’m joining you today with a charming little scene on an easel card.

20200822_115752c

There’s lots of die cutting on this card but it’s easy to put together. The hardest part was choosing the colour scheme.

DSCN0489c

I started by die cutting my easel piece which is from the new Porch Pop Up Easel Set. The die set is meant for a front porch scene but I used only the two dies that create the card base and added other dies from my stash to make my own scene. This makes your easel card design possibilities, endless!

For the background of the card front I used some happy yellow patterned paper and added a grass border to the bottom of the panel.

I took the Proper Brick House and die cut it several times from different shades of teal card stock and assembled the house and I added a red door for a pop of bold colour.

The trees were die cut 3 times from white card stock and once from green card stock from the new Frosted Glitter Pad. I layered these all together to create thicker trees.

I die cut some small flowers from the Floral Cluster in yellow and red card stock and added them below the windows and used the Whittle Cloud as smoke from the chimney.

I think this card could be used for many occasions and would also be great for a guy so I left the sentiment on the inside simple with Just A Note stamped on a Colwell Label. This label die cut is what helps to keep the card in the easel position but it will mail flat in an A2 envelope. No extra postage needed!

Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great week!

Roses and Butterflies
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.597862898961E12

Hello everyone! For today's card I've played with a couple of shimmery watercolor pigment powders and some Memory Box products.

I first white heat embossed the flowers on watercolor cardstock.

I carefully dabbed the colors on and spritzed with water. With a paper towel I dried off the edges and any spots that were too dark, but I didn't overdo the use of water because I feel the powders truly shine when the pigment is allowed to do it's own thing.

After it was completely dry I buffed off the color that was on top of the embossing powder.

I cut a piece of vellum to size and dry embossed it. I white heat embossed the sentiment on the same color cardstock I used for base. I first adhered the flower and sentiment to the vellum which allowed for glue on the back of the vellum. Here I'm trying to show you the shimmery galaxy like flowers.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Stay safe and crafty.

Heartfelt Hugs
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Friends!

Thank you so much for dropping by the Poppystamps blog today! I have got something a little new and different for me, a stamped and watercolored image using the pretty Peony Garden Corner from Memory Box Open Studio. I just LOVE using die cuts on everything, and making paper art! But when I opened my Design Team package from our Poppystamps guru, Dave, I just wanted to try this technique. Even though I didn't exactly get the results I hoped for, I loved doing it! I am also going to keep on practicing too, which is what I tell every person who tells me they just can't make their projects "look just right." Take a look.

IMG_7197-wm

I started out by cutting the Wrapped Stitch Rectangle out of Memory Box Open Studio Watercolor Paper. I love the wonky edges.

IMG_7192-wm

I stamped the images from the Peony Garden Corner on the watercolor paper, aligning things just the way I wanted with my MISTI. Once the ink was dry, I painted the peonies with some inexpensive watercolor paint.

IMG_7194-wm

I was going for a messy, artistic look, where some of the color bleeds out of the images. I don't think I went nearly "messy" enough! I then added a few colorful paint splatters with my paintbrush too. I used a lot of water first, then added drops of paint, then added more paint once the layers and colors were dry. So my finished peonies now have a really chalky and thick look and feel to them. What will you create with this beautiful Peony Garden Corner set?

Thank You Rose
by Sue McRae

DSCN0347cc

Hello crafters! It’s Friday and that means the weekend is almost here! I hope you’re planning on getting a little bit of crafty time in.

Today I have another easy card that can be made quickly for any occasion.

First I took some patterned paper and white heat embossed a flower from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set on it and cut it out.

DSCN0350c

I chose a pink card stock that matches the patterned paper and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Gracious Leaves Embossing Folder. Embossing is a great way to add visual interest and texture to a simple card design.

DSCN0351c

Next I die cut the Orchard Leaves from white card stock to add around the flower bloom. I like the texture that the cut lines on the leaves adds to the card.

The sentiments are from the same stamp set as the flower. I chose two complimentary sentiments and white heat embossed the thank you on black card stock and stamped the second sentiment with black on white card stock.

DSCN0358c

I assembled the card and added a sparkly gem to the flower centre.

You can really change up the look of your card by your choice of patterned paper. The options are limitless!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Challenge Reminder - Hot Hot Hot!
by Jeanne Jachna

Poppystamps-Rose-Frame-Two

Jeanne here and I'm sharing a sunny hello and reminding you to play along with our monthly challenge!  It's a great way to see how others are using their Poppystamps products and get a little inspiration.   And who knows?  You might just win a $20 gift certificate to the store!  Wouldn't that be sweet? 

08-20 copy

This month we're having a Summer Heat Wave!   This challenge has lots of possibilities!  How about some Heat Embossing?  Or maybe a little watercolors to cool off?  This time I'm going with HOT COLORS - red, yellows and orange! 

Poppystamps-Rose-Frame-Thre

The Poppystamps Rose Frame has been a favorite of mine since I first set eyes on it!  I have colored it in lots of different ways in the past - with Copic Markers and Watercolor.  Today I've inlaid all the pieces with colored card stock. 

Poppystamps-Rose-Frame

Yes it was a bit of work, but completely worth it when you see the clean finished design.  I wish you could run your hand across the smooth surface.  I started by cutting the frame from white card stock and adhered it to a panel that I covered with a double sided adhesive sheet.  It was easy to lay the pieces over the openings and push them in place with a needle tip tool. 

Poppystamps-Rose-Frame-One

 To add even more color I die cut some colorful circles for the center of the design before topping them with a Brush Hello die cut from white card stock. If you look close you'll see I've added an orange matt between the card base and the intricate die cut Rose Frame too. 

Poppystamps-Rose-Frame-Four

I hope you'll join us for our monthly challenge.  It begins on the first of the month so there is lots of time to play.  I'm always happy to add a few cards to my stash!  Have a great day!
