Notecard Set
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0172

Hi and welcome! I am sharing a notecard set, something I like to keep on hand for gift giving.

I keep them simple, with touches of handmade goodness. Usually sets of 4 or 6, and always with matching envelopes.

The notecards are 3 1/2 x 5 (A1), and I fit them opened, into my Misti fitted with a bar so I can stamp them assemble line.

I chose copics to color my blooms. Above are the colors I used. Soft and pastel. An easy night while watching TV. You could use any medium. I've done this with watercolors, pencils, or even foam daubers and ink.

My die cuts stand out against the floral blooms, but still flat enough to go through the mail.

A set of 4, tied with a ribbon, added to a basket of baked goods... might just give this to a new neighbor down the street.

So many stamps sets to choose from in the  Memory Box Open Studio store. The dies are Poppystamps, and the links below with take you to the item. 

Hope your weekend is full of crafty goodness!

Wishes and Washi by Nancy Penir

DSC_0171

Well hello and welcome. Nancy here, and I'm sharing a card made with Poppystamps' Diamond Sentiments stamp and die set.

I have the shop link below, and I think you'll find plenty of sentiments included in the set to fit many occasions. Here's an easy way to use the set.

Memory Box's Open Studio has several extra wide Washi tapes that are perfect for creating quick and easy backgrounds. This luscious floral instantly and easily covers a card base. I added a layer of yellow vellum (Hobby Lobby), allowing my die cut to take center stage on the card.

The stamp is a large one, nearly covering an A2 sized panel. I decided to give it bling, and gold embossed the image, before cutting it out.

Next, to color and add the sentiment. So many sentiments included with this set! This card could be for a birthday, or wedding, etc. The leaves are colored with Arteza Ink pens. I haven't used them in a while, and I'm very happy with the bright and bold colors they produce! Add a sentiment (dark green embossed), pop up the die cut, and add a few gems, and done!

Have you tried the wide washi tapes? So versatile, I used one for the lining of my handmade envelope. Makes a greeting extra special to have a matching envelope.

I make many of my own envelopes, using paper rather than cardstock, and lining with the wide washi.

Hope you'll try using washi for your next projects. Be sure to check all the new products in the Poppystamps and Memory Box

(Open Studio) stores!

Have a wonderful weekend, hope it's extra crafty!

Fern and Daisy
by Candice Crawford

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.

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.

Multiple flower cards

Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.

IMG_20200721_221955

First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.
IMG_20200721_221955

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.
IMG_20200721_221955

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.
IMG_20200721_221955

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.
IMG_20200721_221955

So there you have it. 5 quick cards for different occasions that are nice to have in your stash.

See you next time
