Valentine's blog blitz - Love & Hugs
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.57878356454E12

Happy new year, Poppy fans! We are continuing our valentine's blog blitz and I'm sharing 2 cards today showcasing the beautiful Grid heart frame die. Although the Danish flourists have long adapted the valentine's tradition, I myself have not. So instead I made cards of love and hugs.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For the first card I ink blended a background with pink oxide inks and cut the frame 4 times from white cardstock. I layered the frames and glued them on top of the pink base.

I cut and colored the Whittle panda. To avoid getting my black marker all over the panda I placed a piece of cardstock behind the eye.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut the envelope, heart tag and love outline letters from white cardstock - the shadow from black cardstock. I ink blended the tag and also the little cut out heart. I stamped the sentiments and tugged the panda into the envelope so it looks like he's holding the tag.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

Both the envelope and love outline are popped up with craft foam and the panda itself is popped up as well. I ran over the tiny heart...

... as well as the letters with a clear sparkle pen and then glossy accents for a shiny dimensional look. Isn't it pretty!?

For a final touch I added some clear sequins.

The other card is all about hedge-hugs. Here I also ink blended the base with oxide inks but this time I threw in a little purple as well.
IMG_20200112_000701

I cut and colored the Whittle hedgehog. Once again I stuck a piece of cardstock behind the ear to ensure not getting my light and dark colors mixed.
IMG_20200112_000701

I left the hugs heart white but popped it up and backed it with a piece of cardstock inked with the same color as the base.
IMG_20200112_000701

Although the light makes it a little hard to see the Grid heart frame is heat embossed with a pretty soft pink and sparkly embossing powder. Sooo gorgeous!

And here's the finished card. I hope I have inspired you. But wait... the best is yet to come! You could win the Grid heart frame used on these cards.

Valentine's Blog Blitz: Scribble Daisy Heart Frame
by Sue McRae

IMG_0373c

Welcome to another day of our Blog Blitz! Sue here with a sparkly Valentine's Day card using the new Scribble Daisy Heart Frame. Keep on reading to see how you could win this die.

What I love about this die, is that it can be used throughout the year for many occasions, not just Valentine's Day. This die would be great for a wedding, anniversary, birthday or Mother's Day. Lots of possibilities!

IMG_0337c

I started by die cutting the frame 3 times from 80lb Neenah Solar White card stock and once from blue glitter card stock. I adhered the 3 layers of white card stock together and hand cut a piece of white card stock to which  I glued the frame to give it a backing.

IMG_0346c

Next I used glitter glue in pink, yellow and orange and squeezed the colours into each petal of the flowers. When doing this I filled the petal right up to the top because as the glitter glue dries it sinks. I didn't have any glitter glue to do the background of the frame so I used the blue glitter card stock and paper pieced those in.

IMG_0356c

There's a new beautiful 3D embossing folder out with leaves, flowers and a heart. Before running the folder through my die cutting machine I sprayed the card stock (80lb Neenah Solar White) with a bit of water, this helps to soften the paper fibers so you get a deeper impression and the card stock won't crack.

IMG_0371c

I die cut the Love Heart from green glitter card stock and adhered that on top of the Daisy Frame heart. 

IMG_0372c

The sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder that has little flecks of coloured powder in it. You can also really see all the detail of the embossing folder.

IMG_0383c

Everything was adhered to a white card base (110lb Neenah Solar White).

IMG_0362

Now it's time for the giveaway.

Valentine's Blog Blitz - Hugs Heart Craft Die
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 1.9

Hi Everyone! 

We are just nine short days into 2020 and so far the new year is bringing lots of exciting things. Especially the Poppystamps' 2020 Valentine's new release. We are continuing our Blog Blitz and giving away the Hugs Heart Craft die. Details on how you can win this die are provided at the end of the blog post. 

January 9 Blog Post 2

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made using the Scribble Daisy Heart Frame and the Hugs Heart Craft die. These two dies when paired together are a match made in heaven. The Hugs Heart Craft die easily layers on top of the Scribble Daisy Heart Frame to create a beautiful focal point image and sentiment for your card.

Both dies contain frames for which the inner die cuts pieces can be used interchangeably to create a colorful inlaid look. 

January 9 Blog Post 4

To make my card, I first die cut the scribble frame from a piece of white cardstock; then again from a piece of light pink cardstock. I adhered the white frame to a plain piece of white cardstock that was the same size as the frame. Next I inlaid the pink petals from the pink scribble frame die cut onto the flower outlines on the white scribble frame. 

January 9 Blog Post 5

I then die cut the hugs heart die first from a piece of hot pink cardstock and again from a piece of light pink cardstock. I removed the Hugs sentiment and flower petal pieces from the hot pink cardstock and adhered the hot pink heart panel onto of the white heart from the Scribble frame. Next I inlaid the light pink petals from the light pink hug heart die cut onto the hot pink cardstock piece. 

January 9 Blog Post 3

I popped the entire inlaid panel onto a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white cardstock that I embossed with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. For some added dimension and texture to the card, I die cut the largest frame from the Double Stitched Rectangle Frames and added it as decorative border to my card front. Next I die cut the Splendid Stitched Hearts die from some light pink cardstock and added a cluster of hearts to the corners of the card.

January 9 Blog 7

This card is packed with dimension. I just love all of the stitching on these die cut pieces. 

And now onto the prize.

Blog Blitz Valentine
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0013 2

Welcome! Poppystamps begins the New Year with a Blog Blitz and a chance for you to win the beautiful new dies in the 2020 Valentine collection! Come take a look at the new Meadowblossom Frame and Stencil. 

DSC_0012_wm

The beautiful etched heart and frame die cut with perfectly wonderful detail. And Poppy includes the stencil which allows you to color the flowers. Take a look at how I made my card.

DSC_0081

Using 2 Distress Ink colors, I loosely applied ink to my card front.

DSC_0082

You can't see the die cut frame, but I positioned it on my card front, then inserted the heart into the frame and lightly penciled around it. This is where my sentiment will go.

DSC_0083

New to Poppy's Valentine release is this sentiment set called, Valentine's Fun. Hugs and Kisses has the sweetest curly flourish and fits perfectly within the heart.

DSC_0084

DSC_0088

After stenciling and inking my flowers, I added some detail with these copic colors.

DSC_0014

I also added a small bouquet at the top of the heart, and some Nuvo drops to the flower centers.

Shake It Up!
by Sue McRae

IMG_0119c

Hello everyone, Sue here with a Christmas shaker card!

Who doesn't love getting a fun shaker card, I know I do, but it's also fun to make them! I used the new Snowglobe Kit which makes it so easy to put together.

IMG_0100c

I started off my die cutting all my pieces. I used some patterned paper from Memory Box for the trees, wood grain card stock for the snow drifts, wood paper for the moose and base of the snow globe.

IMG_0105c

The background piece is navy card stock but I wanted to make the edges darker and used Distress Ink to achieve this.

IMG_0111c

After adhering all my pieces down I added small star sequins to the night sky and I have my acetate piece ready with the double layer of foam adhesive. A little tip, when you're adding foam adhesive to a curved item peel the paper backing off both sides of the foam, it will be so much easier to bend it around the circle.

IMG_0114c

Now I've added my iridescent mica flakes on top of the snow globe piece and will place the acetate window piece over this. I find it much easier to do it this way than adding the shaker elements inside the window and trying to centre the snow globe piece on top.

IMG_0127c

For the card background I used a piece of patterned paper with Twas the Night Before Christmas text and added a Double Stitch Rectangle Frame along with the the snow globe and base.

IMG_0137c

Have you made a shaker card before? Let me know in the comments.

Happy crafting!

A Child is Born
by Marybeth Lopez

D92ABFCD-A932-4FB5-B787-53C009AE08DE_1_201_a

Hi there ! Marybeth here today with an ink blended Christmas card from Poppystamps and using a Merry Christmas stencil from Memory box . The Stencil is called: Christmas Cursive Merry. I thought is was from last year but I was wrong sorry it's from 2014  #88578 You can make this card using any Christmas stencil you have .

707FEBB7-18C5-4B0F-9CFF-01A8B9BF6C0A

I sprayed the back side of my stencil with : Pixie Spray I think I bought mine on Amazon but many places sell it. I started out ink blending with Candied Apple and wanted a deeper red.

761F33B5-2DFE-4749-9975-96F6E3875712

I went over my stencil a second time using : Festive Berries

E13A6116-F919-41F3-8E05-5E2A5EDC3034

Then one last time did the trick using Ruby red. I love that you can add to the card base with any color. This stencil is very detailed and so easy to do with a blending brush as pictured above. Now the fun part......

6DAD9798-E03E-4A26-888C-0A8F0D6307A6

Taking the stencil off! Without the spray to hold such a detailed stencil in place , it would be hard to have such a clean white image , I love how this turned out. I couldn't decide what color to frame my sentiment ( using the snow globe ) so the frame is cut 3 times and glued together. Then I added a bit of glue to add my two layer dove and olive branch . 

5355C1B6-F69F-47ED-AB0B-E01FFA6017BC

My new and very favorite craft glue is : Art Glitter Adhesive.... It comes with a stainless tip and pin to keep the adhesive flowing freely and the tip is so fine . I love how precise this glue is. Many places sell that too , pretty sure I bought mine on amazon . No glitter in it it's just what it called.  I will share a picture of it on my blog. Here  

32E1FB3C-D8CF-46A9-B2DD-0627A2FEE44E

I used the Snowglobe ,Christmas Time Stamps and Dove and Olive Branch from Poppystamps the patterned paper around the frame is from memory box Dashing Stripes and Dots.

Thank you so much for the visit today.  Hope I have inspired you in some small way and I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

A Very Warm Christmas
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0003

Happy Holidays Poppy Peeps! I have a card for you today using some of the newest released dies, and a fun way to create just the right sized mantle garland for the new Whittle Fireplace.

DSC_0007_wm

I left all my Whittle die cuts white, and assembled the scene onto one of the new holiday papers included in the Dashing Holiday set. Love the bright crisp white against the holiday red print. But I wanted a holiday look to my mantle. Here's how I created my garland...

DSC_0063

Poppy's Leafy Wreath die! It cuts out just the right size to assemble a garland for my mangle. I cut the die out of 3 shades of green, before adding tiny clear rhinestones to simulate holiday lights. 

DSC_0004

Here's a closeup of the garland. The mirror is the inner frame of a die set called Deco Cecil Frame. I cut the center from silver mirror card stock.

DSC_0005

The stocking with mouse is popped up with foam.

DSC_0010

I just love the Leafy Ornament Frame to round out my Christmas scene, and simply cut the ornament from the frame. Those darling corners are just the right touch of folksy glam to my Whittle Fireplace.

Have a wonderful week, and hope you enjoy this most blessed season!

Whittle Merry Christmas
by Sue McRae

P1370448c

My card focuses on the cute Whittle dies that Poppystamps offers. I just love how charming all the images are in this series. 

P1370431c

I created a window card by die cutting an Art Deco Frame four times out of my card panel.

P1370435c

I wanted to do some inking behind each of the window so I lined the panel up on my card front and made pencil marks so I knew where all the windows would be to do my ink blending. Then I masked off each window section and used some aqua ink to create a gradient of colour.

P1370440c

To add a little more interest to each window I flicked on aqua ink in a shade darker than I used for the ink blending, some white acrylic paint and Perfect Pearls. I put a bit of all of these products on an acrylic block, added a bit of water to them, dipped my paint brush in and flicked away!

P1370426c

For each of the whittle dies I used paper from the new Memory Box Dashing Stripes and Dots pad and the Dashing Holiday pad. There's a lot of fun patterns in these pads that are good for Christmas and throughout the year.

P1370454c

I popped up all the die cuts and the window panel with foam squares and added the sentiment which was white heat embossed on black card stock.

P1370444c

Love how this turned out and it was quick and easy to make!

P1370449c

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Snow Speckle Washi Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0015

Happy Holidays to you! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a card made with the new Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape Poppystamps has available in the store. 

DSC_0018_wm

I've used several of the new dies out this season, plus Mod Poinsettias. And here's a hint on a way to use the wide Washi.

DSC_0024

I covered a red card stock panel with the Washi, and die cut 3 smallest poinsettias. The width makes it easy to cover a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

DSC_0025

DSC_0019

The touch of softened red with the white dots went nicely with the pastel card. I added white die cut poinsettias, sponged inked with the same aqua behind my Bethlehem scene. The sentiment, O Holy Night was cut down a bit to fit on the bottom.

DSC_0022

Hope you enjoyed today's holiday post, and hope your holiday cards are well on their way to being done!

Have a wonderful, Happy, Crafty Holiday!
