Challenge Reminder: Colors Of Autumn

Hello Autumn Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a reminder to enter the PSC#74 Colors Of Autumn!  The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is crafty using colors of Autumn... reds, yellows, oranges, and everything in between.  Not feeling like a color challenge?  That's ok.. how about some fall foliage, pumpkins, apples, gourds, and cornstalks?  Maybe some whittle fall critters?  Gobble gobble!!!  Just like the bounty of the harvest, there are lots of possibilities! Link up your projects... cards, tags, home decor, and more!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!

To help give you some inspiration, I created my card using the Maple Leaf Side Strips and Stencil. I die cut it out of white cardstock and then used the stencil to color in the leaves using some fall ink colors and a blending brush. Then adhered the white panel to the front of an off white card base.

For the sentiment, I used the Luscious Script Hello and cut it out using some orange foiled paper.

A Fall Hello
by Kim Singdahlsen

I am thrilled to be a new member of the Poppystamps design team.  Before I was even asked to be part of this team, my collection of Poppystamps products was already large.  I am excited to be able to share with you as part of the Poppystamps team. 

For my first card, I wanted to say "hello" and I combined all of my favorite things.  I love autumn.  I love groupings of dies. And I love clean and fresh cards.  (I don't call them "simple" and I'll explain as I give you more details on this card.)  Clearly I also love Poppystamps products - with a special place in my heart for the Whittles!  The Whittle Squirrel was a last minute addition to what was supposed to be an elegant card - and I think they totally make the card!

Autumn Hello 640

I am a very visual cardmaker.  I have a general idea in my mind, but I still have to cut and try and move and change often dozens of times.  I don't know if it is like that for everybody; probably not given the volume of cards many cardmakers create.  Luckily I like the process, plus I typically end with a variety of scraps to try on my next card.  Nothing is adhered at this point until I am completely happy with what I am seeing.

Of course I cleaned up quite a bit before snapping this photo but you can see that I tried different colors for the squirrels. I also tried a gray sentiment, pearlescent green leaves, reddish-orange leaves, plain golden leaves, clear sequins and yellow gems. And that's not even getting into the various layouts that I played around with. 

When I finally have everything together in a layout that I like, I snap a picture with my phone.  This helps to adhere everything later.  There are other methods of keeping an arrangement of dies together to glue it down, but I like doing them one at a time because I am a huge fan of dimension so I have to adhere these in a certain order.  Here's my phone photo. Everything is in an order that I like, it seems balanced, I even planned the "hello" over the pumpkin.  And this is why I don't call then clean and "simple" cards - the details can make a difference!!

Now it is time to adhere it all.  I like dimension - it can bring a card alive.  It's kind of hard to tell with this one because the phone photo has so many layers of dies, it looks like it already has dimension but I want to keep that when it is glued.  After the stripes are down, I adhered the leaves but only at the end so that the tops can pop up.  Then I use different thicknesses of dimensional dots.  The label and the pumpkin are on a thinner dot and the squirrel is on a thicker.  (Did you happen to notice that I changed my mind after my "final" phone photo - I just had to add the baby squirrel!)

I do love dies and the detail on these particular dies is fabulous.  I look forward to many more cards with Poppystamps!

Multiple flower cards
by Tina Wilstrup

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.

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

See you next time
