Hi and welcome! If you love bright, happy and spring color, you're in for a treat today! Nancy here and I've been playing with Poppystamps' newest release. Oh my, Spring Bliss!

Have you created a slimline card yet? I'll share a secret with you, this is my first. Couldn't resist Poppy's new Leafy Vines Slim Plate. It packs a wow on a slim line card! Here's a quick and easy 'how to' for you.

Here's a photo of measurements that will get you the base for a slim line card. 8" x 8 3/4", fold down the middle, and the beautiful Leafy Vines Slim Plate fits perfectly on the card's front, with a nice edged frame too.

Then the fun begins! Pale Eastery pastel? Monotone single color? Or Bright no holds barred wake up color! Just had to celebrate the season's change with a bold punch of color for this card!

My card's a slimline shaker with the new Farm Fresh Eggs cut from Glitter Card Stock moving around inside. I threw in some spring sequins too.

Pretty much an afternoon of decorating bliss on the front of a card! The slim lines fit easily in a business size envelope, or you can find colors online on Amazon and many  hobby stores too.

Hope you're inspired to try a slimline. Be sure to check out the Poppystamps' store for all the newest stamps and dies. And a big shoutout to our sister stores, Memory Box and Birch Press for their latest. New paper packs that will thrill! Hugs, all!

Hello everyone, I have used From 2021 Spring release. Memory Box 3D Embossing Folder "Blooming"  &  Poppystamps "Fern and Daisy Pop UP Easel die set. They work beautifully together, don`t you think!.

IMG_7461-crop

I started by embossing from the Memory Box. Polished Foil Pad paper pad, white..

I have cut using the Easel die one sheet from Memory Box "Fresh Aqua" paper pad.

To make the pattern pop, I have used a very old white ink pad, just swiped over the embossing with ink,  it is a firm cloth material! so perfect for doing this technique.

Peony Garden Corner
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3380

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here! 

Today I am back on the blog to share another spring themed card using the Peony Garden Corner stamp and die set from Memory Box. This large 6x8 stamp set comes with a large flower image that fits perfectly in the corner of an A2 size card. 

IMG_E3338

To make this card, I die cut the background images with the Lattice Plate with some cream colored card stock. Then I die cut the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame from some gold card stock. I adhered the frame and the lattice background panel to an A2 cream colored card base. 

IMG_E3343

Next I stamped the Peony Corner stamp with Versamark ink and heat set it with some gold embossing powder. Then used the coordinating die from the set to cut out the flowers. 

IMG_E3337

Next I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in 2 shades of pink and 2 shades of green to color in the image. I also used my water brush pen to distribute the color in various areas of the petals and leaves to create depth and dimension for the watercolor look. I adhered the flowers to the left corner of the card with some foam tape. 

IMG_3342

Lastly I stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday onto a strip of black card stock in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with some white detailed embossing powder. I then cut the sentiment into two strips and adhered it to my card with foam tape. 

Very stunning. I hope you've enjoyed this project share and found inspiration.

Until next time....Happy Crafting!

Fern and Daisy
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3379

Hey there crafty friends, hope you all are enjoying your day. 

Have you seen the new release from Poppystamps? Today, I am featured on the blog showcasing the new Fern and Daisy Pop-Up Easel set. This die set makes the most adorable easel card. But it also makes a wonderful card front focal image for regular A2 size cards as shown in my project today. 

IMG_3359

To get started, you will first need to die cut the background panel from a piece of white card stock and the oval fern frame from a piece of green colored card stock. I am using a sage colored card stock from the new 6x6 Lush Green collection paper pack called Lush Green from Memory Box. 

Next with your Alcohol Markers in shades of green, add some depth and dimension shadows to the leaf images of the fern frame. For some of the fern pieces I colored them in a deeper shade of green for added interest. Then adhere the fern frame to the white background panel with some liquid adhesive.

IMG_3360

Next, die cut an oval shape from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock using the oval die that comes in the set. Because the oval die cut provides raised  outline trim on the edge, I used my scissors to trim about 1/8 of an inch off of the white oval piece following this outline. I then sponged on some tumble glass Distress Oxide ink to the center and stamped my sentiment in Versa fine Onyx Black ink. The sentiment comes from the new Diamond Sentiment stamp set. 

IMG_3365

Next I die cut the white daisy flower images from scraps of white card stock from my stash. I added Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to the flower petals along with a dollop of  Black Nuvo drops to each of the flower centers. I popped some of the flower images up on to the Fern frame with some dimensional foam tape. I also die cut 3 butterfly images and coordinating wings from the die set with  some gold card stock. Two of the butterfly images were popped up with foam tape. 

IMG_3364

Lastly I adhered the decorated panel to a 4.0 x 5.25 piece of yellow card stock then glued the  entire card front to an A2 size white notecard.

This card is absolutely stunning. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and tutorial.  Until next time....happy crafting.

Good Morning Sunshine
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_2740-wm

Good Morning Sunshine! Are you ready for spring to arrive? This warm and welcoming card has bright and sunny daisies all nodding their heads to the sun as this little one makes a spring debut!  Take a look!

IMG_2737-wm

Would you believe I only used TWO different Poppystamps die sets to create this pop of freshness? I started with the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set, and just used the oval leafy ring and the background piece for the card base. Then I added loads of bright daisies in an assortment of colors.

 

IMG_2741-wm

Once my daisy ring was created, I added the Chick and Egg and a few sequins and it's ready to go.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

With Love

Greetings my Poppy friends! I have a card to share with you today featuring a few of the new items in the shops.

DSC_0160_wm

Have you ever tried the Open Studio embossing folders? Talk about dimension... They're extra deep allowing you to play with texture and color. The card I made is really very simple. I ran my folder through my machine (be very careful, allowing for the extra thick folder, adjustments may be necessary), and used sponge daubers and oxide inks to apply color to the lifted flowers and leaves. I used a lighter hand, blending colors, and trying not to go out of the lifted image.

I used the Simple Leaf Heart Split Border from last year, also colored with my oxide inks, and lifted the panel with foam.

DSC_0163

The heart window frames a few of blooms.

Like I said, the dimension on these or any of the embossing folders is amazing! 

Hope you're inspired to try your favorite technique with them.
