Summer birthday
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.593510977832E12

Hello everyone! Can you believe it's July? The last 4 months feel more like years. Right? It's officially summer though and we can at least enjoy the wonder of flowers. So today I have a dry embossed, watercolored card for you.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I started by applying ink to the inside of the embossing folder. I used Distress ink, since they're easy to clean. I spritzed a bit of water, wiped off the flower part as best I could, and laid the watercolor cardstock on top. I then ran it through my die cutting machine. Make sure you follow directions for your machine, these are thick embossing folders.

I first heat set the ink with my heat tool and then applied a dark yellow ink - pad directly to paper - over the sunflower. Notice that I got some yellow into the blue background. I'll cover that later. With a waterbrush I carried some of the ink to the rest of the petals. I again made sure it was completely dry before lightly running over my embossing ink. I did get more ink on than planned, but I had just reinked my pad. So that's something to keep in mind. I added a clear  glittery embossing powder and heat set that. Then I used my finger to dab embossing ink to the middle of the flower and applied an embossing powder that's a mix of gold, silver and copper. Watermark1.593510977832E12

I then cut my scallopped frame and placed over the sunflower. Here I've already cut off a couple of corners but you can still see that it's quite off set. I adhered the flower and frame to a white cardbase.

I cut a couple of butterflies and a happy birthday sentiment from glitter cardstock. I absolutely love this teal color and it's the perfect contrast to the yellow flower.

I adhered the sentiment cuts and then played around with placing the butterflies strategically to cover my ink pad mistakes from earlier. I didn't cover all of them, but most.

So there you have my sparkly flower card, and in case you missed it the challenge theme this month is Glim and Glam - add some sparkle.

See you next time. In the meantime, happy crafting!

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-4

Good Morning Friends! Are you loving all of the New Garden Variety Products that the design team has been showcasing? It is such a great release with so many wonderful new products. Today for the Blog Blitz we are giving away the Flora Blooms Die Set. I will have all of the details below on how to enter.

For my card, I started by die cutting the Floral Blooms and Flora Bloom Solids Set from the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad. I love how these two die sets can be layered and work so well together. A perfect match!

SavingPNG-1

For my card base, I die cut the Circle Fold Frame from white cardstock. I then used the Small Curve Background Die and die cut it from the same soft pink glittered cardstock. Lastly, I die cut Scallop Small Curve Border Die from white cardstock. Once again, these dies layer and work perfectly together. Also, I wanted to mention that I used a liquid adhesive to glue my glittered die cuts together. I have found a strong liquid glue works the best.

Next, I attached my Circle Fold Frame to a cardstock base and layered my pieces to create my card.

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment directly onto my card base. For my sentiment, I used the Whittle Sayings Stamp Set.

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz

Hello Crafty Friends!

We are so happy that you have decided to drop on over to our Poppystamps blog today! We have a brand new release fresh from the garden, and we're calling it "Garden Variety" and you can see it here at our store site.    We are celebrating with a big Blog Blitz to show you the new products and give you a chance to win some of them for yourself!

IMG_6964-wm

Today I am sharing a fun card to make with a very CAS vibe! I started with the Circle Fold Frame which is designed to create a card with multiple folding techniques and infinite design possibilities! It has these beautiful scored lines that lets you bend the card in a variety of ways.

IMG_6954-wm

I cut all the pieces of my Circle Fold Frame, my square card base piece, and 6 Lattice Small Curve Borders in a crisp white. The photo only shows 4, because I decided to add two more Lattices once I got rolling.

IMG_6950-wm

Then I put it all together. I absolutely LOVE the texture of all this lattice! Since I must wear latex gloves all day at work, having a pretty card to touch with a lot of great texture gives me a little smile for my soul! The idea for this card was inspired by a garden, a brand new garden with beautiful white lattices, and over time, the vines and roses bloom and grow, just like beautiful friendships.

IMG_6956-wm

I glued all the lattice on the different panels of the card. As you open each panel, the rose bush grows. If you open the panel half way, the rose bush grows from 1, 2, then 3 blooms.

IMG_6962-wm

The flowers are from our new release too, Village Rose and Background, and dark green Orchard Leaves. I finished it off with two Intricate Cut Butterflies.

IMG_6959-wm

To create the center of the card, I cut the Echo Blossoms out of pale pink, and stamped it with a sentiment from the Greeting Basics stamp set.

IMG_6965-wm

From the front, a pretty card with a heartfelt message.

IMG_6969-wm

Open the first half-panel, and see another vine, and another pretty bloom.

IMG_6972-wm

Open all the way and see the full lattice of flowers, blooming and brightening our days just like our most cherished friends, who we can turn to during our darkest days.

Now the part you've been waiting for!  Your chance to win the Lattice Small Curve Border!

I cut a few butterflies out of : memory box Garden Folly patterned paper . I wanted to be able to choose the ones I wanted , I also cut a few all white .I cut the birthday sentiment twice so I could layer them.

I love the embossed background and how easy it is to use.

I like to layer the butterflies with the patterned paper on top. They fold down for easy mailing. I cut my tag out of watercolor cars stock.

Thankful for you

Hello everyone! I hope you are all safe and well. Here in Denmark we have now re-opened pretty much everything, which is a bit worrying. I'm glad schools only have a few weeks left before summer break, although the weather is more autumn like than summer. With my card today I'm trying to rectify that and bring you summer vibes.
Watermark1.590430340474E12

I started by ink blending Antique linen distress ink through the Romantic Blooms stencil.
Watermark1.590430340474E12

I then colored in the areas of flower petals with light yellow, light and dark pink Arteza markers and blended them with a waterbrush. I did the same with the leaves using 2 dusty green markers.
Watermark1.590430340474E12

When I was done with my watercoloring I wanted to frame the image. This is when I realized my card stock was larger than an A2 panel. But this actually worked out great with this frame set. I cut the frame and the Friend word from glitter cardstock.
Watermark1.590430340474E12

I added sparkle with a spectrum noir sparkle pen.
Watermark1.590430340474E12

I adhered the frame and friend word, and stamped a sentiment.
Watermark1.590430340474E12

I hope this cheared you up! Thanks for stopping by. I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment. Happy crafting!
