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!

Eternal love

Hello Poppy fans, I hope you are safe and well. Summer has finally come here in Denmark and recently my husband and I celebrated our 17th anniversary. I'm a very lucky woman to have my best friend and super supportive husband by my side. This year I kept it simple, some might even say girly. But he loved it.
Watermark1.593030684829E12

I started by spraying a liquid ink onto a panel of watercolor cardstock. I did this outside, because I didn't want the ink all over the floors. I spritzed a couple of times and then, while it was still wet, I poured over pink glitter. When it had dried completely I carefully removed the excess glitter by tilting the panel. I didn't flick it, because I didn't want to risk all the glitter falling off.

I then cut the Confetti Heart plate from white cardstock and adhered on top of the watercolor panel. In this close-up you can see the glitter.

I stamped a sentiment, cut it with my trimmer and poped it up for dimension.

I would love to hear from you. Until next time, happy crafting!

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz Love and a dog
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.591885508193E12

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Blog Blitz post. That means lots of chances for you to get your hands on Poppystamps products. Please see details below. Today I've kept it fairly simple since the pandemic that is still going on meant my new products arrived late (yesterday, but who's keeping score, lol). But I'm super excited it got here, so I could show you this new Whittle Cutie Dog die.
Watermark1.591885508193E12

I cut a panel, sentiment and hearts out of some patterned paper. The Whittle cutie dog I cut from white cardstock.
Watermark1.591885508193E12

Using a small piece of printer paper I protected one area of the doggie while ink blending over the other. 
Watermark1.591885508193E12

I layered 3 different colors, and finished off with a black marker for the eyes and black nuvo drops for the nose.
Watermark1.591885508193E12

I put the love cut out together using both glitter and patterned paper. Before adhering it I stamped the sentiments to go with it. This sentiment is so true to me! I adhered the dog and then both the positive and negative heart cut outs. Also cut from that gorgeous glitter paper.

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz

Hello and welcome to Poppy's newest dies and stamps and papers and washi... well you get the idea, it's Blog Blitz time, and it's called, 'Garden Variety'. Win, win for you. A chance to win, and to see all the new, together with lots of inspiration and ideas.

DSC_0183

I'm showcasing 'Proper Brick House', a 3 piece die set, that allows you to be as detailed and creative as your paper crafting mind can take you! And the die set you could win. Take a look!

DSC_0203

The possibilities for being creative with this die are mind bending! I decided to go all out and use those tiny bricks on my house.

DSC_0187

I die cut the house 3 times, using 3 different colored card stock. Note: if you want most of the bricks to stay, add a sheet of printer paper behind your card stock. Also helps to have this handy dandy brush tool to quickly remove all those tiny bricks. One other note, I traced around the die, so I'd have a solid piece of a little bit darker pink to glue down my bricks. Same with the chimney.

If you love paper piecing with pattern, you're gonna love Memory Box's new paper packs!

DSC_0190

I gave my Proper Brick House a bit more dimension by adding fussy cut windows and door. You don't have to do this step, but wow, does it make that sweet house pop!

DSC_0199

No foam tape for my mini dwelling, just layer on layer, on layer!

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.

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

Long time, no see
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.589394526576E12

Hello everyone! Hope you are all well. Today I wanted to play with a few pun sentiments and a rainbow.

IMG_20200513_201956

I die cut the giraffe 5 times from white cardstock, and cut 5 strips of patterned paper.

IMG_20200513_202037

I adhered the strips to my A2 sized card base and colored the 5 giraffes with Copics in darker, coordinating colors.

IMG_20200513_202112

From the same patterned paper I then cut 5 labels to fit my sentiements.

IMG_20200513_202142

I used the same darkest marker to color the edge of the labels to make them stand out. For this label I even snipped the stamp in 2. I find it easier than to mask the stamp. That way I always end up with ink in wrong places. And I can easily place them together if I want to stamp them as intended later.

Watermark1.589394586807E12

I then adhered the giraffes and popped up the labels. And then I thought it was kind of missing something, yet I didn't want to add more dimension or glitter. I know, weird right? Corona isolation must have gotten the better of me, LOL. Anyway, I added a fine black line all around the base, repeating 3 times. I also added a few "stars". I guess I had to have some "sparkle", after all.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great crafty day!
