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!

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!

Sending XOXO
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028

Hi and welcome to a Valentine post! I have a card for you that's a shaker, made with Poppy's fabulous dies and features a stencil I made. Let me show you how.

DSC_0013

I wanted a simple background for my Meadowblossom Frame, and decided to make my own using Poppy's Confetti Heart Plate. It's really easy with a few tricks I've learned using different methods. Here's what I like best. Die cut your stencil with a nice sturdy vellum. Spray the back with Pixie light tack reposition adhesive spray (Amazon). and allow it to dry a minute or two. It will keep your stencil from moving during inking.

DSC_0014

I used Distress Oxide Inks, but used different amounts and pressure when applying the ink. I wanted a rather ombre effect.

DSC_0015

I wanted the heart and frame from the Meadowblossom frame, but not all the posies, as I wanted the background to show. I simply snipped all but the bottom corner from the frame and heart. I did this 5 times.

One die was glued down to my heart stenciled background.

DSC_0016 2

To make the perfect sized acetate for my shaker, I used the heart from the middle of the Meadowblossom frame, tracing onto the paper, and cutting a 1/8"  wider than the line. The heart acetate piece is glued to one of the 5 heart frames that will be on the top. The rest are all glued to the 1st piece.

DSC_0024_wm

The finished shaker. I added red Nuvo drops to the flower centers, and the red glitter hearts are outtakes from another valentine I did with Banded Hearts die plate. 

DSC_0026_wm

DSC_0046

Since I had the stencil, I decorated the flap of an envelope.

How are you coming with your valentines? Hope you got a little bit of inspiration today. And hope you picked up a few of the fabulous new dies during the release! Happy Crafting!

Love and Hearts
by Marybeth Lopez

31C9AB2A-648A-406E-9CDE-7578999F3D2E_1_201_a

Hi there, Marybeth here today with a Pink Valentine card. I used Poppystamps Love die , the beautiful memory box 3D embossing folder, ( love this folder and I use it on many envelopes too! I also used some leftover hearts from one of my other cards , using the Banded Heart die and the tiny hearts are from the Heartscape Hill die.

3E1D429C-1B79-44F7-BFB8-4FAE47A07F60_1_201_a

Jumping ahead, this card shows how I added shimmer ink all over the hearts and panel. You might see I stamped the heart on the O and then decided not to add anything to it, I covered it up with another layer of heart.

44D8584B-8DF5-4327-8354-62500539EBEA

I used all white paper for my card, all color comes from ink blending . I used the lighter pink for the large layer and the darker pink for the letters that go on top.

76C5537D-81A0-41BB-B520-0075D67983A0

Above is my card base, I wanted it to match the color die cuts, so I ink blended the outer edges only ( center won't show). I then placed the embossed panel on top of this base.

C8481226-4CE6-4DE1-A1E0-85DC5217704C

I added a few drop of my favorite glue to adhere the top layer of the dies to the large outline.  I love these two soft pinks together! Don't you just love the LOVE outline die!!!

5524F0E0-90EF-4F68-B7C0-E8599C13113E_1_201_a

I simply embossed my panel using the 3D folder then added all the beautiful Poppystamps dies .See how the panel looks like colored cardstock! Just ink blended around the edges.

11F94615-1E3C-41D2-A241-ADA450CC687B

I think this will be a St. Valentine card but it could be used for many occasions. The card above this one shows more of how pretty the shimmer is. Thank you for the visit today , I hope you are enjoying a beautiful week .

God bless you .

Banded Hearts
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG

Hi Friends! It is Dana here today and I am sharing a Valentine's Day card using a few dies from the latest release at Poppystamps. I loved so many things from this release, it was hard to decide what I wanted to share! How about you? What is your favorite? 

SavingPNG-5

I started my card by die cutting the Banded Hearts Die from white cardstock. I then die cut it again from a variety of colors...just look at all of those colorful little hearts!

SavingPNG-1

Next, I attached the Banded Hearts die to my A2 card base with a little liquid glue. I then inlaid all the hearts back into the die. This is a favorite technique of mine. I love the clean look that inlaying the negative pieces back into the die creates. 

SavingPNG-2

To finish my card, I die cut the Love Flourish die from soft gray cardstock 3 times. I stacked them together for a little dimension and stability. Lastly, I attached my stacked sentiment to my card front. 

SavingPNG-4

I hope you enjoyed my card today! I think this Banded Hearts die will make a beautiful wedding card...I can't wait to give it a try. Thanks for joining me today and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Textured Love
by Tina Wilstrup

IMG_20200120_204650

Valentine's day is getting closer - do you have your card for your loved one ready?
Watermark1.579466688841E12

I had this alcohol ink panel lying around. I didn't like it so it's just been sitting there. I first dry embossed it with the new Memory Box Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder. I then poured on some isopropyl alcohol to reactivate the colors. I kept moving the panel until it was all activated.
Watermark1.579466688841E12

I let some of the ink drip off. It was too purple for me. And this is what I ended with. In hindsight I probably should have stopped now because this in my opinion shows the embossing better. 
Watermark1.579466688841E12

But I didn't stop. I added new pink and purple alcohol inks, layering until I was happy with the look. Once dry I used a fine nail file over the embossed areas to remove the alcohol ink and make them stand out more. IMG_20200120_204713
I cut the panel to size and cut the Meadowblossom frame from white cardstock and layered over it. The heart shape in the embossed panel just fits inside the cut out heart on the meadowblossom frame, so pretty! I then cut the Love flourish from white cardstock and placed it inside the heart.
Happy crafting!

Valentine's Day Shaker Card
by Nadine Carlier

Valentines Day Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a Valentine's Day shaker card. Have you all started making your Valentine's Day cards yet?
For my card, I used the Poppystamps Grid Heart Frame cut from white cardstock and the Graceful Heart Frame cut once from white cardstock and once from pink vellum. To adhere the two Graceful Heart Frame layers together, I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite. I then adhered the two layers onto the Grid Heart Frame layer.

1

Instead of using acetate to make my shaker card I decided to use some pink vellum behind the Grid Heart Frame. I then added some 3D Foam Tape and for the inside of my shaker, I used the hearts that were cut out from the Grid Heart Frame and some pink seed beads.

2

Then I took the big heart that was cut from the Graceful Heart Frame and used one of the stamps from the Poppystamps Valentine's Fun Clear Stamp Set and stamped it with Delicata Pink Shimmer ink.
