Easter Card with Rinea Foil
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028

Greetings Poppy friends! And welcome to the Poppystamps blog, where we are partnering with Rinea - the maker of beautiful metallics and foiled papers. I've created an Easter Card to show you how beautifully they work with Poppystamps dies!

Many of the foiled papers are double sided, emboss like a dream, and when used with Ghost Ink (another product they sell), showcase embossed images. Read on for all the fun...

Now because I used a delicate image die, I glued my sheet of pink Rinea foil to a piece of Cardstock before die cutting.

With a small finger sponge, I tapped on the ghost ink pad, then lightly rubbed on just the image I wanted color removed. You can see on the flowers on the right, wherever the sponge was applied, the color is lifted. So cool, isn't it? 

DSC_0018

I added foam to the back for depth.

You'll notice my branch is on the right of the card before I added the bunny, which will face the branch.

DSC_0016

I glued several strips of foil to Cardstock and die cut some eggs from each color.

The basket is also cut from foil paper, which was first die cut, and again worked with the ghost ink.

Ghost ink was lightly rubbed on the posies on the flower spray, before I added the Fairy sugar centers.

Foiled papers add glam to your design like no other! Hope you're as sold on these as I am. And hope you enjoyed a look at how easy and fun they are to use. 

Speaking of hope... I do hope you're all doing well, fully stocked in toilet paper and wipes, (wink wink) and especially chocolate!  Strange times, aren't they. Stay healthy friends!

Elegant Tri Fold Card with Rinea Foil
by Jeanne Jachna

Rinea-Two
Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  I know we're all going through this tough time together.   I'm trying to make the most of it - enjoying a sweet escape while I craft.  I hope you are all safe and healthy and trying to find the rainbow too.  Unemployment and shelter in place are forcing us to stay home, but I'm grateful that we are together.    Better days are coming! 

Rinea copyThis month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together.  Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects.  The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base.  This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet.  Additionally this gives it the ability to hold it's shape making it perfect for dimensional flowers.

Rinea
I'm usually a CAS gal, but today I'm channeling my inner Pam Simpson - aiming for elegance the way only Pam can! 
Rinea-Seven
My card starts with the new Oval Fold Frame.  I cut two from light pink card stock, folded them and adhered them to an A2 panel in the same color card stock.  If you fold across the oval both the inside and outside of the fold have a clean smooth finish.  The 1/4" flap on the border is adhered to your card base panel. 
Rinea-Three
I stamped a sentiment from Friendship and Kindness on an oval that was cut from the Oval Fold Frame. 
Rinea-Five
I embellished the side panels with the Tall Curve Background cut from a slightly darker shade of pink, and the Picket Tall Curve Border cut from Rinea Gold Foil.
Rinea-Four
Before I adhered the left side panel I attached the cut oval insert to the die cut with washi.  When I folded the flap it covered some of the tape I used to adhere the oval to the frame.  To give a clean look I cut a second oval to cover the tape on the oval that was exposed.
Rinea-Six
I cut some Delicate Poinsettias from the foil  - I think they make beautiful flowers all year round.  I wanted to demonstrate how the foil holds it's shape.  I used a McGill Paper Blossoms tool to shape the petals.  You can wrap the foil around the tool and create curves, and use the ball stylus to make a "well" in the flower centers.
Rinea-One
I hope you'll give Rinea foil a try! It's really like no other foil I've ever used and really wonderful for 3D projects.

Spring Blog Blitz - Grand Watering Can
by Candice Crawford


Poppy Stamps Blog Post 3.27.20
Hello Everyone, 

Candice here showcasing another card sample and a chance to win an amazing die set from our Spring Blog Blitz. Today's giveaway features the new Grand Watering Can die from our Spring release. This die is great for spring themed cards and surely a die set you will want to add to your collection.  

Poppystamps Blog Poat 3.27.20.2

To get started, you will need to die cut the Grand Watering Can from a piece of patterned paper. I am using a sheet of 6x6 purple plaid paper from the new Memory Box Springtime Bouquet paper pad. Next, die cut one set of leaves and 2 sets of flower petals from the new Floral Clusters die set. I used card stock scraps from my stash in green to create the leaves and yellow and pink card stock for the flowers.

Now adhere the flower petals onto the leaves with some liquid adhesive. Add a dab of  glitter glue to the flower centers for some added sparkle and shine. I used the new Memory Box glitter glue in Berry Mist and Lemon Drop.  

Poppystamps Blog Post 3.27.20.3

Next I adhered the flowers and leaves to the top of my watering can with some liquid adhesive. Check out all the detail and dimension from these flowers. Aren't these flowers adorable?

The background for my card was created from a piece of 6x6 striped patterned paper from the Memory Box Springtime Bouquet paper collection using my favorite double stitch rectangle frame die set. After cutting the frame, I then adhered the frame and the coordinating center piece back together on to my A2 size card base using some liquid adhesive. 

Poppystamps Blig Post 3.27.20.4

Next I created a yellow and white scalloped layer for my watering can and flowers. To create this layer, I die cut the scallop frame from a piece of yellow card stock using the Double Stitch Scallop Rectangle Frame Die. Then I adhered the frame to a 4.25 x 2.75 piece of white card stock with some liquid adhesive. Next I added the Watering Can to the center of the two-toned scallop frame with some foam adhesive. I then adhere the scallop frame with the watering can to my patterned striped card based with some additional foam adhesive. 

Poppystamps Blog Post 3.27.20.5

To finish off the card, I die cut one of the labels from the new Colwell Label set from a piece of white card stock. Next, I stamped the sentiment Best Wishes from the new Greetings Basics stamp set with some Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I adhered the sentiment label to the center of the watering can with some foam adhesive. 

This card is truly adorable and I had so much fun creating it.  If you would like a chance to win the New Grand Watering Can die, simply play along with our Spring Release Blog Blitz.

Blog Blitz Thank You Card
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-9

Hello Friends! It is Dana here today with a Thank You card to share with you all.  We are continuing with our Blog Blitz today, so remember to leave a comment down below. Today you will have the chance to win the Colwell Label Set. This is such a great set of labels and a basic die set that you will want to add to your collection! Let's get started, shall we?

I started my card by spraying the back of the Chrysanthemum Stencil with Pixie Spray (from Therm O Web) to hold the stencil in place. Then I used purple tape and masked off the leaves on the stencil. This step took a little extra time but it was definitely worth it in my opinion. Once I started adding my ink I did not have to worry about the leaves, because I knew they were covered or masked off. 

SavingPNG-6

I added Distress Oxide Ink in Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin to the Chrysanthemum. Once I was finished I removed the purple tape.

SavingPNG-7

I then lined the stencil back up over the Chrysanthemum and masked off the flowers.

SavingPNG-5

I added Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn to the leaves. I once again removed the stencil and the purple tape. Once my card panel was finished I lightly spritzed it with water and set it aside to dry for a few minutes.

SavingPNG-4

Next, I trimmed my card panel down a bit to A2 card size. I then used a die from the Colwell Label Set and die cut a label from the bottom left corner of my panel. I stamped my sentiment from the You Are Wonderful Stamp Set directly onto the label.

SavingPNG-10

I then mounted my stenciled card panel onto my A2 card base. I added a little foam adhesive to my label and inlaid it back into the opening on my card panel.

SavingPNG-11

To finish my card, I die cut a green frame with the Pointed Rectangle Frame Die. I then added the frame to my card front. I love the way the frame finishes the edges on my card and ties everything together. Lastly, I added a few Lemon Drop Jewels to my card front as a finishing touch.

SavingPNG-8

Over the weekend I had some time, so I decided to use the Romantic Blooms Stencil and make a "bonus" card to share with you all. This time I just placed the stencil directly onto my card panel and ink blended Distress Oxide Ink with a rainbow of colors. I actually didn't even add ink to my sponges, I just used the leftover ink that had accumulated. Super quick and easy!

SavingPNG-5

Thanks for joining me today. I hope I inspired you to give the new stencils a try...I promise you won't be disappointed!

Spring Blog Blitz - Adriana Wreath
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6777-wm

Hello and Welcome All to our Spring Blog Blitz! We have got some fresh new products and beautiful designs from our talented design team all month long to help us chase away those winter blues! Today I am sharing my pretty spring wreath created with the brand new Adriana Wreath. Take a look!

IMG_6774-wm

The Adriana Wreath is an intricate one-piece die that packs a powerful punch! I started out by cutting the Wreath in a pretty lime green, then adhering it to my crisp white card base.

IMG_6754-wm

Then I selected my favorite spring pastel palette, and cut out a random pile of leaves, berries, and tiny blooms from the Garden Leaves and Berries, the Orchard Leaves, and the Floral Cluster die sets. I arranged them around my Wreath, then stared gluing. Soon I came up with a fresh spring look I love!

IMG_6756-wm

Then came my favorite part! I pulled out my brand new Fairy Sugar Glitter Glue from Memory Box Open Studio! I squirted tiny drops in the center of my tiny pink leaves in small drops of glittery goodness! Today I used Strawberry Ice, but you will want every color in your collection!

IMG_6758-wm

I added a few sparking sequins and voila! It looks like Paris in the Spring!

March Challenge Reminder: Floral Fantasy
By Nancy Penir

DSC_0087

It's a Floral Fantasy this month for the Poppystamps Challenge! Hi! Are you playing along this month with our challenge? Did someone say, 'floral?' I love a card with flowers. It just says happy. Here's my inspiration card for you.

6a01157003623c970c025d9b365dc3200c

DSC_0006_wm

I used a Sidekick Frame as my starting point, cutting it from a deep green shimmer card stock.

DSC_0078

Don't know if you're aware, but MemoryBox has washi tape! and wow! Look at that Spring pattern goodness.

This spool is 4 1/2" wide, and covers the entire face of your A2 card, and then some.

DSC_0082

Another new product in the store is watercolor paper, generously sized at 4.5 x 5.75. I was anxious to give this product a try. LOVE it! It moves the paint around with ease, and cuts perfect images.

DSC_0083

I added a floral corner from the painted pieces, staying with the colors in the washi. 

DSC_0084

I'll add a greeting when I want to use the card for an occasion. One last note, I added drops of the new glitter fairy sugar to some of the flower centers. Hope you're playing along. We love seeing you're creations. Poppystamps has so many gorgeous florals to choose from. Happy Crafting!

Cheery Cherry Blossom Thanks
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6742-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

Are you in the mood for some happy thoughts? I am too, and nothing makes me happier than the thought of Spring right around the corner! We have got some absolutely beautiful new Clear Stamp Sets that welcome Spring in a big way. I used the brand new Memory Box Cherry Blossom Wreath and my favorite colored pencils to create a bright and colorful easy breezy card design that was a lot of fun to make too. T

Take a look!

IMG_6739-wm

The Cherry Blossom Wreath set includes both the beautiful stamps, and the amazing dies as well. I began by stamping the large wreath design on my MISTI a few times for a crisp, fine line drawing. Then I used a few colored pencils and played around with the petals and leaves, creating a bright blooming wreath.

IMG_6735-wm

The detail in the wreath and blossoms is amazing! Once I finished the coloring, I carefully lines up my die, then adhered the pretty wreath to my card base.

IMG_6737-wm

I added tiny foam pop dots pieces to the Thanks Outline and the Whittle birds, then mounted it onto the wreath. Easy Breezy, and perfect for so many occasions!

IMG_6740-wm

This wreath design was so much fun to play with, I stamped a few more wreaths in crisp black, and then a pigment white ink, then added embossing powder for a beautiful textured finish! I can't wait to try this with watercolors and copic markers too! Any way you create with this pretty Cherry Blossoms Wreath will remind you of the beautiful colors of spring!

IMG_6733-wm

Even my kitty, Omar, had to check out this awesome design!

Thanks so much for joining us today, and keep thinking those happy thoughts of spring!

Split Birthday Wishes
by Marybeth Lopez

 

E5618C86-06E8-42CC-9978-3DAFDDE0F46A_1_201_a

Hi there! Marybeth Lopez here, with a Flower Challenge Reminder! All you need to do is make a card with a flower , one random winner will win a $20 certificate to the Poppystamps store. I used this beautiful Peony Bouquet clear stamp from Poppystamps .

4222A213-94CE-4286-A6E1-428F1E436144

0F658922-CEED-4254-9F77-E73D4DD13DFF_1_201_a

I could have stamped my flower then split it, I think next time that's what I will do so I don't lose any of the flower. I did it the way its pictured above then removed the tape . I forgot to take the picture, so this one is stamped already.

 

3F352F24-2A3F-40E7-959D-1B15E07C5F30_1_201_a

I split the stamped image and added foam tape to the back .

9B1BCA79-3F20-4BC4-8B67-46ACD6444187_1_201_a

I heat embossed my image and watercolored it in with Zig pens. After stamping the Birthday wish I then adhered the two cut panels to my card base.

D913401F-E022-444C-B28E-5F6D83CE83A8_1_201_a

Because the panels are raised you can add embellishments  without causing a bump to you card . Easy mailing with the bump flush within the card.

 

CA0FF672-4AE4-41FE-BB8D-2DC55AD38ADC_1_201_a

Hope to see you play along for a chance to win!  Had a hard time with pictures due to the very cloudy day when I took these, sorry!

Hope you have a great week!
