Not sure if you can see in the photo above...  the dots of glue  that I used to adhere three layers of the : Happy Birthday die . I cut two layers in cardstock and the top layer in foil from , memory mox linked below. See how tiny the tip of my glue is.

I love the variety of 6 x6 paper packs available from Poppystamps and memory box.

I used the stitched rectangles dies (linked below) the center layer is blended with oxide inks and my blending brush. The beautiful plaid is coral and greens with bits of gold foil , that's why I did the top layer in very light gold-ish foil. I love the simplicity of this card and yet it is full of brightens and happy colors.

Shake It Up Challenge Reminder
by Sue McRae

IMG_0274c

Happy Wednesday everyone! I am here with a reminder to participate in the March Monthly Challenge,  Shake It Up! Who doesn't love to make and receive shaker cards and they are so easy to make!

6a01157003623c970c026bdebff03b200c

I used several new products from the spring release on my card, including the pretty leafy frame from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set. There are a lot of dies in this set and they can be used on any card, not just an easel card. The frame was die cut from some pretty blue paper from the new Ocean Blue Paper Pack. There are 4 sheets of 12 colours in one paper pack which really helps me with coordinating colours together.

For the background of the shaker I used plaid paper in pinks and blues from the Spring Plaid Paper Pack and my shaker bits are a variety of beads and sequins.

The sentiment was white heat embossed and I added a few butterflies from the Vibrant Violet Paper Pack and added shimmer on top of them.

Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir

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!

DSC_0162_wm

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.

IMG_0950

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.

IMG_0956

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!

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!

by Marybeth Lopez

Hello and Happy almost Saint Valentine's Day to you.  Marybeth Lopez here today with a slim line card using one of the brand new Poppystamps  Spring 2021 die, called Leafy Vine Slim Plate. It cuts like butter so very easy even with all those pieces. The stamp is also from Poppystamps called Dimond Sentiments Set with the die .

F3415605-39D0-490A-96B3-6CF0015C7B78_1_201_a

As you can see I added some shading and glitter to my layered card.

The die measures ( 3.6 x 8.6 inches) ( 9.1 x 21.8 cm.) I made my folded card just a tiny bit bigger or you can make it fit right on top.

I placed the die cut panel on top of a pice of paper  just a bit smaller , then shaded some of the panel in with a blending brush.

After I stamped the die cut sentiment I did a bit more shading on the edges and then decided to add glitter to.. mostly the outer images.

This photo above shows, a bit of  how pretty the glitter looks in real life.

After creating this card I had so many more new ideas, guess that will be for another  time.

Take care and God bless . Happy Crafting friends !

Diamond Sentiments Stamp and Die


You Made My Day
by Sue McRae

20210207_084424c

Happy Tuesday everyone! Sue here with a slimline card. It’s actually my first attempt at a slimline card and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. It’s a fun size to try different card design ideas. My slimline card measures 3.5” x 8.5” and can fit into a #10 business envelope.

20210206_133200c

I decided to make a colourful background with pieces of scrap cardstock that I cut into a variety of widths. I played around with the colours until I was happy, applied adhesive to the card base and adhered the strips.

Next I took the largest Whittle Circles Frame and die cut it 9 times from grey cardstock and adhered 3 frames together to create one thicker frame. I offset each layer when I adhered it because I like the dimension and depth it added to the frame.

20210207_084453c

Did you know there are some new animal friends that were added to the Whittle Family? I used three of the newest animals, the Squirrel, Sloth and Papa Hedgehog on my card. I die cut them from white cardstock and added them inside the wreaths. They are so cute!

20210207_084525c

I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set and finished off with a few gems.

20210207_084334c

This card makes me happy with its rainbow background and adorable critters and the slimline size was perfect for this design.
