All the Happiness
by Sue McRae

20210911_153635c

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.

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

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.

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!

Oh the wonders of  washi... so many ways to use it. I added the wide rose washi from Memory Box to a piece of white cardstock before cutting it with my die. I also fussy cut one of the rose bouquets and added it to the top corner.

Joy

Hi there! Marybeth Lopez  , here today sharing a card for Poppystamps using more products than I normally do.  All listed and linked below.

I started this card out by using the gorgeous 3D Dmbossing Folder from Open Studio. Then added the sentiment from Poppystamps called Art Deco Birthday Greetings.

After finally deciding on the second smallest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle I added to my card , felt like it needed just  bit more . I used the darling Poppystamps Whittle Beaver, he is layered 3 times.

Love all the memory box cardstock . The color I used is called Sunny Orange. Another favorite of mine is the Madras Plaid Coral and Green patterned paper  , love the foiled gold on each one. So pretty in person.

 Isn't that embossed panel gorgeous. I love doing it in white because it gives a rich cottony look to it.

I hope you day and week is full of JOY!  May God bless you and your family, always.

A Summer Hug
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0026 2

I've been playing around with the slimline dies, Poppystamps has in the store, and love the Leafy Vines Slim Plate.

DSC_0013

My card today is for no one in particular, just a general 'Hugs' card. Who couldn't use a hug right now?

DSC_0018_wm

Lots of bright summer colors, and happy flowers to brighten someone's day!

DSC_0011

My cardstock began it's life in white, and was transformed with Distress Oxide Inks, blended. I did the reverse color combo before die cutting the leafy vine.

DSC_0017_wm

The Slimlines will fit any business size envelope, and mails with a regular stamp.

Hope you give a slimline a try, if you haven't attempted one yet. 

Have a wonderful week, hope it's crafty!

Blooming Thank You and Hello
by Tiffany Pryce

20210625_145825

Hey crafty friends! Today, I'm sharing how I combined color blocking and embossing folders. I wanted to see if I could use my embossing folder in a slightly different way for a new look. 

First, I selected four colors of cardstock and cut each piece down to 5.75 x 4.5 inches. This would be a great chance to create a monochromatic card or play with a unique color combo you've been meaning to try. I used the Sunny Orange paper pack and the Fresh Aqua paper pack for my two cards. I then created an A2 template from copy paper to map out my cut marks. You can create your template however you'd like, but I think the fewer lines, the easier it is to complete the final card panel. 

20210624_213916

Since the template is smaller than your cardstock, use a ruler to extend the lines so you know where to cut on each cardstock panel. I used temporary adhesive to glue two cardstock panels together so I could cut two panels together at one time.

20210625_003944

Once your panels are cut, add adhesive to the template, select the pieces in the order you would like, and adhere to the template. Once all four color blocks are adhered together, run through the embossing folder using the instructions for your die cutting machine. I think creating the color block panel before running through the Blooming 3D Embossing Folder is much, much easier than embossing each piece of cardstock and then trying to piece it together. Ask me how I know, haha (the yellow panel was done the hard way)! After embossing, trim down the panel to an A2 size.

20210625_005948

To finish the cards, I kept it pretty simple. For the blue panel, I lightly rubbed white pigment ink over the panel to add ink to the raised areas. I die cut a vellum circle from the Stitched Circle Layers die and die cut the Thank You Flourish die four times from white cardstock. Finally, I added several Fairy Drops for a little shine.

For the yellow panel, I trimmed it down to slightly less than an A2 card. I lightly rubbed gold pigment ink over the panel to add ink to the raised areas. Then, I die cut the Hello Folksy Script die three times from white cardstock and once from gold foil cardstock from the Polished Foil paper pack. I adhered the sentiment with foam tape on top of a simple wreath made from the Garden Leaves and Berries die.

Hope you were inspired to try something new with your embossing folders and colorful cardstock. If you make something inspired by my cards, please tag Poppystamps and me on IG. I'd love to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Tickled Pink
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0018

When I compose a card, it's usually with a purpose in mind, like a birthday, or get well. Hi there Poppy friends! Nancy here, and I've got a fun Whittle card for you today, with a technique using embossing folders and ink pads.

DSC_0002

The embossing folder is brushed with ink, either using the ink pad directly or with a brush. Direct application of the ink pad gives it a richer more vibrant color. It's your choice as to what you want the background to look like. Soft or vibrant. Then the paper is inserted in the ef, and run through the machine.

DSC_0017_wm

This card was done with the ink pad.

I took this picture outside, which gives a better color representation. I love how the wave crests stay white.

DSC_0012_wm

Indoors, lighting is always tricky. The colors seem softer.

Poppystamps embossing folders are amazing! Deep and textured, you can see the waves and how they roll. 

Hope you try this technique, if you haven't already. Lots of embossing folders to choose from in the shop right now.

Happy Crafting!
