Poppystamps 9.29.21 1.

Hello there crafty friends! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today I am coming on the blog to share with you this beautiful floral card using products from our sister company, Memory Box. 

I am in need of a few thank you cards; so I decided to pull out this large 6x9 stamp set called All the Happiness from Memory Box to make a set of mini slim line cards. In addition to the floral stamp set, today's card, also uses the Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim sheets,  Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die set,  and the Joyful Moments stamp set for my sentiment.

Mini slim line cards are just as popular as the regular sized slim line cards. They measure 6.25 inches long by 7 inches wide and are scored at 3.5 inches. Mini slim line cards make great note cards and can easily fit a security business sized envelope.

To begin, I stamped the floral image in Versamark ink onto a scrap pieces of white card stock and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detailed gold embossing powder. Next I took my Copic Markers and colored the floral image, then die cut the image using the coordinating die from the stamp set.

Next, I die cut the stitched rectangle from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock. Since this die cuts a thin stitched frame. I paired the gold frame from the gold card stock with the inner piece of the frame cut from the white card stock. I sponged on some Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink onto the white panel, then stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Moments stamp set in Versafine Onyx ink.

Next, I trimmed the patterned paper to 6.25 inches x 3.5 inches and adhered it to my mini slim line card base with liquid adhesive. I then added the sentiment panel and the flowers to the card with 3M foam tape. Lastly I embellished the card with some gold metallic pearls from my stash.

 I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. I also hope that you will try making a slim line card for your next project. Until next time....Happy Crafting.

Hugs

Happy Thursday! Tiffany here with some more Poppystamps inspiration. I decided to play along with the challenge this month and use Washi tape. I don't feature Washi tape that often, but I should! It is an easy way to add a fun element to any papercraft. For this card, I kept it simple and used the Washi tape as a background to my die cuts.

To start, I added the Cornelia Aqua Wide Washi tape to a panel of heavyweight, white cardstock. It is much easier to roll out the Washi tape if you cut a scrap piece of cardstock and attach it at the end of the tape. I think it gives you something to hold on to as you roll out the tape smoothly on a piece of cardstock. After I adhered the Washi, I die cut the panel with the Stitched Rectangle Layers die. I die cut a few more layers with scrap cardstock for dimension behind this panel.

Next, I die cut the Village Rose and Background die several times from light and dark purple cardstock from the Twilight Purple paper pack. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue and adhered it to the Washi tape panel randomly. I trimmed off any excess flowers.

Next, I die cut the sentiment. Using the Big Hugs Sugar Script die, I die cut the shadow layer from vellum and the top layer three times from white cardstock. Finally, I added clear Fairy Drops around the panel to fill in the gaps and add a little shine. I really like this sweet and simple card to send a little love to a friend. Hope you will join us for the Washi challenge this month!

Art Deco Birthday Greetings
by Kim Singdahlsen

9.17.21 PS side BL

All of the Deco products in the recent Summer Theater release are absolutely spectacular and there are many beautiful cards on this blog using them but I hadn't used any of them yet. I definitely wanted to so for inspiration I googled Art Deco Images and saw many basic black/white or black/gold images. I was thrilled to see that because I've been struggling with ideas for a birthday card for my SIL and it all came together because she decorates everything with black and white photography. 

I did the black and white background with the Geometric Deco Plate and a gorgeous sentiment from Art Deco Birthday Greetings. The flowers are the Village Rose and Background with a few leaves from Orchard Leaves.

9.17.21 PS dies BL

I love the curves of the flowers against the geometric lines of the background. It's a beautiful contrast.  Then I used glitter paper for the background of the flowers to give them some birthday sparkle!

I don't post any cards that I don't like - and I have more than my fair share of those - but some cards I truly love and this is one of them.  The bright flowers against the black and white, the curves against the straight lines, the cheerful colors and the beautiful sentiment - it just all worked for me!

9.17.21 PS BL

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did.  It's a beautiful background. By the way, there's also a separate frame that goes inside the square so it can also be used with smaller sentiments.  And if you browse the blog, you'll see many, many other gorgeous uses for this die!Kim Floral Signature copy

All the Happiness
by Sue McRae

Happy Monday everyone! Sue here with some stamping today! I feel like I don’t do as much stamping as I used to. It seems to be all about the die cutting.

20210911_153710c

I inked up a floral image from the All the Happiness stamp set with embossing ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder.

20210911_153726c

To add colour to the image I used a small blending brush and a variety of dye inks. No need to stay within the lines for this technique. By inking up the image this way you can get the job done quickly. The image was die cut with the matching die.

20210911_153659c

I die cut the Double Scallop Oval from White Woodgrain Paper and temporarily positioned it on the card front so I could figure out where to stamp the sentiment. I used foam tape to adhere the oval frame to the light gray card base.

I attached the floral piece with thinner foam tape to the frame and added a variety of Fairy Jewels for a little bling!

Thanks so much for joining me today on the blog and I wish you a great week!
