Stencil techniques
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.583705980697E12

Hello everyone! Spring is getting closer by the minute and I'm loving the new stencils from the spring release, so once I got started I just couldn't stop myself. I absolutely LOVE stencils, they can be used in so many different ways and today I'm sharing a couple of different techniques. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

Let's start easy, however a bit untraditionally. Here I'm using the Chrysanthemum stencil with just one ink on patterned paper. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

The Whittle cutie rabbit is also cut from patterned paper, and to add a little sparkle I also cut it from glitter paper and offset it behind the patterned paper.

Watermark1.583706177934E12

For the next card I switched to white cardstock and 5 colors of ink with the Romantic Blooms stencil.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I first masked off the leaves. Then, starting from the centre of the flower, using a soft yellow, light and dark pink to create depth. I did the same for the leaves while masking off the flowers. I'm not fancy so I simply use Post It's that I tear to fit the needed area.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I just love the soft blended look of this, so all I did was add a sentiment courtesy of Birch Press Designs. And I love the tiny cuts in these label sets that allow for a small ribbon to go through. So romantic. I backed the panel and label with pink glitter paper. Just look at all that sparkle. LOVE! 

Watermark1.583706033425E12

This card features my favorite stencil technique. It's really easy to do and if you use a glitter embossing powder, like I did here, all you really need to add is a sentiment. I cut the Friend folksy script die from black cardstock 3 times and layered it. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Birch Press Designs.
Watermark1.583706033425E12

I'm using the Bright Blossoms stencil. I go over the stencil with a nice thick coat of texture paste. Once the stencil is removed (and cleaned) I add my embossing powder. You then want to set it aside and let it dry completely before heat setting it. Depending on the amount of glitter in your powder you may want to let it dry before removing any excess powder as well. You'll be left with a beautiful textured, and in my case very glittery, impression of your stencil. 

Watermark1.583706133685E12

On this card I'm using the gorgeous Birch Press Designs Midnight Mandala stencil with texture paste and watercolor powders.

IMG_20200308_131318

I recommend spraying your stencil with temporary adhesive. And even then I still get a little bleeding. But I love the shiny textured look.
IMG_20200308_134618
I die cut the border and hugs heart from white cardstock and the heart from glitter paper as well. The white heart was used to back the glitter paper and then I popped it up with craft foam for dimension.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

For my final card I'm using the Memory Box Leafy Jumble stencil for partial stenciling with gold glimmer paste on patterned paper.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I wanted to use a dark paper and white cardstock for die cutting, and I felt this whimsical glittery textured surface would just break the pattern.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I cut out the wheelbarrow 3 times and layered them for sturdiness before popping it up with craft foam. I cut 2 branches of the floral cluster and placed them on the patterned paper. I also cut out the tiny flowers from soft pink and orange glitter paper and added them to the branches. I finished off the flowers with a drop of Fairy Sugar in matching colors. Sentiment label is also popped up.

Watermark1.583705980697E12

So there you have them. Thank you for sticking around 'til the end, I really hope I've inspired you. Let me know which technique is your favorite and if there's a technique you'd like me to give more details to in the future. Have a great day, and happy crafting!

Pawsitively adore you
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.582380011194E12

Hello Poppy fans! It's still February, the month of love. Today I'm sharing a quick, easy card.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I first ink blended one side of a panel to get a bold ombre effect. 
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I then cut a strip wide enough to back the Curvy Heart side strip and cut a white panel with the die. I also stamped my sentiment.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I backed the panel with craft foam for dimension.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

On the leftover piece of the inked panel I stamped directly pad to paper with my embossing ink and covered with my absolute most favorite embossing powder. You'll see some red flecks in there but it's a dark violet with gold specks in it. So gorgeous! 
IMG_20200222_154637

I then die cut the Whittle dog. I used black Nuvo drops to give him eyes and a nose.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

See? Just a few easy steps and you've got yourself a beautiful card for someone you love.
Now don't be shy to leave me a little love down below. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Hugs
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6715-wm

Hello Friends!

It'a a beautiful spring day, which means it is time to celebrate with Happy Hugs! I used soft spring colors and an inlay technique to create this pretty "hugs" card. I think it will make the perfect birthday card for someone special. Take a look!

IMG_6711-wm

To create this Happy Hugs card, I started out by cutting the Graceful Heart Frame in a crisp white color.

IMG_6705-wm

I adhered the frame onto a pale blue card base, then cut the graceful heart frame again, in a soft green and a linen white.

IMG_6708-wm

Once all of my leaves were cut, I then carefully inserted the green and linen white leaf pieces with a very thin-tipped adhesive and a pair of craft tweezers. A beautiful inlay technique takes a little time and patience, so don't try to create this look in a rush.

IMG_6709-wm

Once the leaves are in place, add the Luscious Script Hugs cut in lemon yellow and white, along with a Little Hummingbird cut in pale lilac.

IMG_6714-wm

A few sparkly sequins give this card the finishing touch!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

With Love From Me To You
By Jeanne Jachna

Love-Four

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day and the sun is shining wherever you are!  It's been cold here in the Midwest and I'm looking forward to the weekend.  It's supposed to be warmer then, and I'm looking forward to getting out with Miss Moriko.  It's been too cold to walk, so I've been taking her for drives in the car.  We probably look crazy because I've got the heat on high, and she's hanging out the window! 

Love-One
I think the latest Valentine's release is too pretty for once a year and plan to use the dies all year round.  I mean.. who ever gets tired of hearing that they are loved?  Not me! 

Banded-Hearts

This card starts with the die cut Banded Hearts adhered to a white card stock base.   Next I cut the die with colorful card stock scraps.   All the hearts are the same size so you don't have to worry about fitting the right heart in the right opening.   I adhered the hearts in a random order.    When I was done I stacked on a second Banded Hearts die cut from white card stock to add some depth to the panel.

Love-Two

I just love the rainbow of color!  It's like candy for the eyes!
Love-Three
I wrapped gold twine around my fingers to create rings and then adhered the assembled Love Outline over the twine.   I applied adhesive foam twine  behind the Love Outline die for more dimension and drama. The sentiment is from the new Birch Press Design "You Are Awesome" stamp set.  It's got lots of sentiments that would work well with word dies. 

Love
Hugs and love to you sweet friends!

Confetti Heart Plate
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 2.14.20. REVHappy Valentine's Day Everyone! 

Candice here back on the blog showcasing my last Valentine's Day card for 2020. Today's card features the Confetti Heart Plate and the Love Outline die from our January release.

Poppystamps 2.14.1.2

If you're in need of quick last minute Valentine's Day card for someone, you can easily put together this cutie in no time flat.  To get started, die cut the Confetti heart plate from a piece of white cardstock. This die is perfectly sized to 4.25 x 5.5 inches, which the same size of an A2 card.

Next grab a sheet of red and white polk a dot patterned paper and cut it to A2 size. I'm using a piece of red polka dot paper from the Memory Box Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 paper pad. Cut your patterned paper to 4.25 x5.5 inches and adhere it to your card base. Then place the Heart plate die cut piece on top of your patterned paper. Isn't this stunning! Instant decorative background with no ink blending involved. 

Now cut a strip of black cardstock to 1.75 x 4.25 inch strip with your paper trimmer. Then using the newly released Love outline die to cut the sentiment outline from a scrap piece of white cardstock and the sentiment layer with a piece of red cardstock. Next layer the red love sentiment on top of the white outline and secure the two pieces together with your favorite liquid or tape runner adhesive.  

Poppystamps 2.14.1.3

Adhere the two toned love sentiment on top of your back cardstock strip. Pop up your sentiment strip onto your confetti heart plate with some 3M foam tape. 

Viola, your card is done! Wasn't that quick and easy. 

Poppystamps 2.14.1.4

I hope you've enjoyed today's card tutorial. I hope you found inspiration to either case my design or to create your very own card using the same dies from the January Valentine's release. Thanks for joining me today. Until next time...happy crafting!

Love Stitch Circle Frame
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps 2.13.20

Hey there crafty friends, 

Candice here on the blog today sharing with you a shaker card tutorial using the Love Stitch Circle Frame die and the Memory Box Drifting Hearts stencil. 

To get started take a piece of white cardstock measuring 5.7 inches tall x 4.5 inches wide and sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress oxide ink with your ink blending tool.  

Poppystamps 2.13.20.1

Next place the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts on top of your Spun Sugar cardstock panel and sponge the heart images onto your paper using Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Barn Door distress inks. Add each of the colors in order from lightest to darkest making sure to blend each of the colors together to avoid any harsh lines.   

Poppystamps 2.13.20.2

Now take your Double Stitched Rectangle Frame die and die cut a frame and inner panel from your heart stencil cardstock. The Double Stitched Rectangle frame will create the perfect A2 size card front panel. 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.3

Next die cut the Love Stitch Circle Frame once from a scrap piece of red cardstock and then again from a scrap piece of white cardstock. Snip away the love sentiment from the red scalloped circle frame, leaving just the frame behind. Adhere the red scalloped frame onto the white Love Stitch Circle Frame to create a two toned effect. 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.4

Next using a circle die or punch from you stash, cut a 3 inch circle from a piece of clear acetate. Adhere the acetate to the back of the two toned frame using some strong adhesive. I used 1/8th inch score tape.

With some 3M foam tape, cut a thin strip of adhesive foam long enough to go the entire perimeter of your scallop frame. Adhere your foam tape to back of your scalloped circle frame. Remember to double up on the adhesive so that there is enough clearance for your shaker bits to shake. Brush a bit of your embossing buddy on the inside of your adhesive foam to prevent the shaker bits from sticking to the sides. Now add your sequence or shaker bits. I am using Sprinkletz sweetheart embellishments. 

Remove the backing tape from the foam adhesive and add your stenciled card front to the shaker frame. Add your shaker card front panel onto an A2 side folding cardbase and your shaker card is now done! 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.5

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and found inspiration to create your very own shaker card. Thank you for joining me today. Until next time, happy crafting!

Challenge Reminder
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-7

All you have to do is create a project using an animal, along with one of the many products from the Poppystamp line and link it up to the challenge post

IMG_6495

Let's get started with my card, shall we?

SavingPNG-10

I started my card by creating my background. I used the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts. I added Distress Oxide Ink (Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass) to my background and then used the same colors along with the stencil to create a tone on tone effect. 

SavingPNG-8

Next, I used the Love Heart die to die cut three hearts out from my card panel. I then attached my card panel to my stenciled background so the soft colors were showing through behind the hearts to create a soft pretty background. 

SavingPNG-9

I die cut the Whittle Panda from white cardstock and used Copic markers (N2 and RV 10) to color the details. I then attached the adorable little panda inside the hearts. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment onto the bottom of my card panel before attaching everything to my A2 card base.

Love and Sunshine
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6692-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

There are so many things to love about the latest release from Poppystamps, especially these tiny hearts! Every designer is creating beautiful projects that feature rows and rows of tiny hearts, in a wide range of colors. Today I am sharing a few cards I made with alcohol inks and YUPO paper in bright sunshine colors. Take a look!

IMG_6688-wm

I love the look of bright, crisp white paper and the marbled jewel look of alcohol ink on YUPO! I started out by pulling out my box of scrap alcohol ink papers I had left over from other projects. When I saw this scrap of bright sunshine yellows and rich coffee browns, I wanted to give them a try. It's not your traditional red and pink palette you see around Valentine's Day, but I thought it would look fresh and cheerful.

IMG_6671-wm

I cut the Banded Hearts in white, then used the die again to cut all my bright scraps into a pile of tiny colorful hearts.

IMG_6674-wm

Once the Banded Hearts cut was adhered to my card base, I then carefully glued all the tiny hearts in place using glue and craft tweezers.

IMG_6678-wm

Not only does it look unique, but the smooth texture of the YUPO feels so fun!

 

IMG_6680-wm

I finished the card with the Love Outline, cut in crisp white and rich browns.

IMG_6682-wm

I had enough little hearts left over to make a second card, using more blues and purples. For the second card, I used the Grid Heart Frame, which gives my card a different look. Which color palette do you prefer?

IMG_6686-wm

Now I've got TWO cards ready to mail to two very special people!

IMG_6696-wm

I third count, I realized I had enough for one more card! take a look!

IMG_6697-wm

This card has a completely different look to it! Instead of trimming the card base to a tight fit, I left it long, and added a sweet sentiment from the Memory Box Valentine's Fun Clear Stamp Set. I'm going to use this large size card as a letter to my good friend, who truly is the very best!

Thanks so much for joining us today!
