Hello , Marybeth Lopez  here today with a fall-ish hug card, using Poppystamps dies, and memory box papers.

As you will see ,  pictured below I couldn't make up my mind on what colors I wanted to use.  I changed them as I went along and even glued on top of a color I did want. The different layers give lots of dimension in person.

I ended up not using any of the yellow or orange. I glued everything on my watercolor cardstock .

The leaves are from , Maple Symphony and the hug is called Luscious Script Hugs.

I used the plaid with gold,  patterned paper again called Madras Plaid Coral and Green all listed and linked below.

I placed the card on top of this mug / rug/ coaster that I made because the colors went well together.

I used the word ( Hugs) because this will post the day before  911  anniversary 20 years ago. I felt many might need a paper hug.

God bless and keep you all. Hope you get some crafty time in this weekend.

PSC#84 Wonderful Washi!   Washi tape is a decorative masking tape traditionally made of rice paper.  It comes in lots of different patterns and sizes for a host of creative ideas.  It's a great way to add a little color and interest to your designs and once you get started using it there's no going back!    Washi can be used to create a fun patterned background, you can stick it to paper and cut out the printed images or die cut your own.     The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media.   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

We're trying something new this month !  We've asked a guest designer to join us to share even more creative ways to use your dies.  Please welcome our very first guest, Tenia Nelson.  When the Wonderful Washi Challenge was announced I knew she was the perfect choice because I consider her the Washi Queen.  I don't think I have ever seen a creation from her that didn't include a bit of washi tape - I consider it her trademark!

Hi there! Marybeth Lopez  , here today sharing a card for Poppystamps using more products than I normally do.  All listed and linked below.

I started this card out by using the gorgeous 3D Dmbossing Folder from Open Studio. Then added the sentiment from Poppystamps called Art Deco Birthday Greetings.

After finally deciding on the second smallest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle I added to my card , felt like it needed just  bit more . I used the darling Poppystamps Whittle Beaver, he is layered 3 times.

Love all the memory box cardstock . The color I used is called Sunny Orange. Another favorite of mine is the Madras Plaid Coral and Green patterned paper  , love the foiled gold on each one. So pretty in person.

 Isn't that embossed panel gorgeous. I love doing it in white because it gives a rich cottony look to it.

I hope you day and week is full of JOY!  May God bless you and your family, always.

Geometric Birthday
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello Poppystamps friends, Marybeth Lopez here today sharing a card using the new Geometric Deco Plate from Poppystamps.

C38F914D-3B63-4275-8F3B-440BA4EBF5E9_1_201_a

I used an older panel made with alcohol inks that I saves. Cut the plate twice and layered it over the panel.

With all the tiny details I used Craft Bond spray and it went on in no time.


C9058775-7179-492D-BDA0-686B82B53739_1_201_a

I know I covered up the center , for some reason I needed to tone it down with the inside of the panel, kinda nice to have that option with the Deco Plate.

I used the Poppystamps , Art Deco Birthday Greetings set for the center pael.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting .

I used an ink pad on my glass mat and added water to the ink then used a watercolor brush to paint the main body of the barn from Poppystamps Country Barn Pop Up Easel Set craft die.

I added two layers of trim for depth, and couldn't resist using the adorable : Poppystamps Little Chickens. I also used the Stormy Blue paper pack from memory box . I wanted to make my card red white and blue as we just celebrated the Fourth of July , here in America. I love the look of the blue paper, kinda reminds me of a summer stormy sky.

Ok, now your turn , lets see what you all come up with, I thought for sure I would be watercoloring flowers but happy I went with the adorable detailed barn.
