Christmas Bird House Easel Card

Hello! Nadine here and today I am sharing a Christmas Easel Card I made using one of Poppystamps' new Christmas dies, the Bird House Pop Up Easel Set.  For the birdhouse, I used the Memory Box Garland Paper and for the snow, on the roof, I used the Memory Box Frosted Glitter Paper. For the wreath around the birdhouse opening, I used some green cardstock and then used Fairy Sugar in Ruby Crystals for the berries on the twigs.

Above you can see how the card looks when it is standing but here is what it looks like when laying flat. It will fit perfectly into an A2 size envelope.

Stenciling with Embossing Paste
by Nancy Penir

Greetings Poppy Peeps! Have you seen all the new stencils in the Poppystamps store? I'm here to show you a favorite way to use stencils. Maybe new to you, maybe a refresher. Hope it inspires you to use your stencils more.

Poppystamps Leafy Jumble Stencil is a fun all over leaf pattern. I did 3 panels with this stencil using metallic silver embossing paste.

I chose this panel and made 2 cards. First covering the card with Distress Inks, then laying down the stencil and sweeping on the paste with a craft knife. Now comes the hard part... waiting for it to dry!

I picked the spot which showed the most overall blend of color and cut my circle.

2 cards with one panel, this one will be a standard A2 card.

The circle was used inside this 5 x 5 square card.

All product will be listed below. Because this is a square, I love to create my own envelopes to go with it.

So easy with a 1 2 3 Punchboard. And a great way to use up extra 2 sided paper from your stash! If you're like me, that stash is endless!

My A2 shaker card all set to send hugs to someone special.

And 2 hugs cards with one panel!

Hope you take a good long look at the stencils available now in the Poppystamps shop. And hope you were inspired to try a little paste with them! So many fun ways to enjoy crafting, aren't there? Have a great week!

Hugs Easel Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0108

Hi and welcome! One of the new die sets Poppystamps released this spring was the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set.

I've been oohing and awing over all the designers easel cards, and wanted to give it a go.

DSC_0115_wm

The set of dies has just about everything you need, but if you want to embellish further, there are coordinating dies you can add.

I cut the pieces from various card stock colors, and used a decorators gilt to add gold. This gold gilt I have had for eons, and it's still usable! I found something similar for you on Amazon, if you like the effect: DecoArt, Gold ML02C-28 Metallic Lustre Wax, 1-Ounce, Rush, 1 oz. I just used my finger to apply the gold gild. Very easy, and it accentuates the lines on the die cut, and gives my card a bit of bling.

All the pieces ready to assemble. You only apply glue to the fold strip, and the piece will fold flat to fit into an A2 sized envelope.

The easel is formed when the card top slides and stops on the bottom die cut.

The inside reveals further greetings, a birthday wish.

One last look at my easel card, this time photographed in the fairy garden, a gift from me to the grandchildren. Every year we add a piece or two. My easel card looks right at home nestled among tiny greens, and little boy fishing.

Hope you enjoyed my easel card, and are inspired to make one. 

Stay well my friends!

Spring blog blitz Easel pop up card
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.584986460623E12

Hello everyone! Our spring blog blitz is in full swing and today I'm featuring the amazing Adriana pop up easel set. It's easy to use and very impactful! Although it looks like Easter has been cancelled here in Denmark due to the Corona virus, that won't stop me from sending out Easter cards. IMG_20200324_095953

I die cut all the pieces I needed from purple glitter and patterned paper.
IMG_20200324_095953

I folded the base along the creases from the die and added both double sided tape and liquid glue for a stronger hold. Since the patterned paper wouldn't be strong enough to stand I die cut the same piece from heavy weight white cardstock and adhered the patterned paper on top before placing it on top of the base. Watermark1.584986407317E12

The oval, leafy base I die cut from dark purple glitter paper and popped it up for dimension. The Wishful bunny is cut from pastel purple glitter paper and also popped up.
Watermark1.584986407317E12

I used some Fairy sugar for eye and nose, some ribbon for a bow and a tiny felt ball for a plushy tail.
Watermark1.584986407317E12

I die cut the medium sized tag from dark purple glitter paper and the same dotted patterned paper as the base. I stamped a sentiment and fuzzy cut around the edge of the patterned paper and glued it on top of the glitter tag.
Watermark1.584986460623E12

I held up the base at an angle to make sure I possitioned the tag in the correct spot on the inside.
