Spring blog blitz Easel pop up card
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.584986460623E12

Hello everyone! Our spring blog blitz is in full swing and today I'm featuring the amazing Adriana pop up easel set. It's easy to use and very impactful! Although it looks like Easter has been cancelled here in Denmark due to the Corona virus, that won't stop me from sending out Easter cards. IMG_20200324_095953

I die cut all the pieces I needed from purple glitter and patterned paper.
IMG_20200324_095953

I folded the base along the creases from the die and added both double sided tape and liquid glue for a stronger hold. Since the patterned paper wouldn't be strong enough to stand I die cut the same piece from heavy weight white cardstock and adhered the patterned paper on top before placing it on top of the base. Watermark1.584986407317E12

The oval, leafy base I die cut from dark purple glitter paper and popped it up for dimension. The Wishful bunny is cut from pastel purple glitter paper and also popped up.
Watermark1.584986407317E12

I used some Fairy sugar for eye and nose, some ribbon for a bow and a tiny felt ball for a plushy tail.
Watermark1.584986407317E12

I die cut the medium sized tag from dark purple glitter paper and the same dotted patterned paper as the base. I stamped a sentiment and fuzzy cut around the edge of the patterned paper and glued it on top of the glitter tag.
Watermark1.584986460623E12

I held up the base at an angle to make sure I possitioned the tag in the correct spot on the inside.

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!

Garden Rabbit
by Marybeth Lopez

 

C050D6DE-0008-4E63-9D44-42841E2948C0

Hello and happy March to you all! Marybeth here today with a sweet Whittle Cutie Rabbit, from Poppystamps . This was a really easy card to make because the background  was basically already created because I used the : Cottage Meadow patterned paper . I cut it down to 5 1/4 by 4 then added foam to the back.

49A73CED-2DCD-4C24-ABBA-6DFD5A5D3ACA

I wanted to shade my rabbit but you could just use colored card stock if you wanted to. The first one was a little darker than I wanted so I made a second one just a bit lighter. I glued three rabbits together so the rabbit would be prominent on the card.

7F023483-817A-4DA7-9D7C-06349FA3C932

I cut some grass using the Poppystamps Hill and Valley Grass Border, then shaded it in . I cut it down to the same size as the panel .

AF67B339-401A-4D7A-85F6-47ABF1B8D9AB

I love this Point Picket Double Gate its two pieces and it fits the panel perfectly!!!! Love that ! I also added two layers to the Grosgrain Bow.

E13CDA84-3BEF-4211-990A-720BE4965D55_1_201_a

I added some foam ( pictured above) to the grass, because it was the perfect size but you can cut your own, if you want. I wanted the grass raised so it looks like the rabbit is sitting ing the grass with flowers.

5F3EC1A0-7412-4F66-B6AD-D8FFC1947213

 

The sentiment is from Birch Press Design : Blooming Spring.

67D4D0FC-D041-4D62-BA05-66CDCBCDEA94_1_201_a

TIP :I recommend stamping your sentiment before adding the foam to the back, it was a little thick in the MISTI because I forgot to take out the foam

85BDFF47-65C9-43FC-AE97-6D5CC7FF9571

Thank you so much for the visit today ! Poppystamps has so many new products in the new Spring line, this is just a tiny sampling of all the amazing new goodies. Happy Shopping!

You are amazing
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.579528790702E12

Hi Poppy fans! For todays card I took inspiration in the current situation in Australia. It is absolutely heartbreaking and my heart goes out to everyone affected.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

First I ink blended a panel to symbolize the blazing fire and set this aside to dry.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I then ink blended another panel to symbolize the burnt trees. After this panel dried I cut it with the Tall skyline Tree frame.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I cut out the Peek a boo koala and colored it. Then I cut off the frame.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I white heat embossed a sentiment on the cut frame and adhered it to the base panel. I adhered the koala as well. From a piece of white cardstock I cut the Samba heart border and measured where I wanted to score it. I then adhered the left side of the panel to the back of the base.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

After adhering the half front, heart cut panel I used my stamping tool to measure where I wanted the sentiments. I didn't want them showing through the cut out hearts.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I added a couple of dots of black Nuvo drops as eyes and nose for the koala.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

On the "inside" I adhered a couple of the cut out hearts from the border. Let's all pray for the survival of the unique and endemic animals of Australia.

Sending Hugs and Kisses
by Marybeth Lopez

D9610235-0560-47FC-9892-80E447548414_1_201_a

Hello and Happy Weekend to you all! Marybeth here today with a card sending Hugs and Kisses ( this will go to on of my granddaughters ) I used the new Poppystamps Floral Lace Heart Split Border craft die along with Poppystamps  Valentine's Fun clear stamp.

A5C62F56-9C98-4452-99B7-F42D3BED13CE_1_201_a

I blended ink just behind the heart, I kinda made a mask with the negative of this die , as you can see on the right side of the heart. When taken away, the only blended ink will be under the delicate heart, simply done with out making a mask. On the left side you don't have to worry because it will be covered up with the Floral Lace Heart Split Border

32F6BBF9-07A4-43A2-AD54-23BEF8F0B8B4_1_201_a

See above, when the negative of the die is taken away all you see is the original watercolored panel.

B25D731C-091E-4E59-A25C-5A98B0BD5D43_1_201_a

I love this 3D Embossing Folder from memory box called :Heart Bouquet EF1006 Heart Bouquet  . It's so easy to use ... place envelope in folder on top of one plate and run it through your die machine.

3235755F-63E1-42E3-8A2B-2D33088EC463_1_201_a

After I was almost done with my card I decided to add two more layers to the top of my card, for more dimension.

D1ED1FF1-3CCA-408C-A3C9-CC7F7F02E725_1_201_a

You cant really see in the photo but I also went over the lacy part of the heart and used a shimmer pen.

2BCA5E45-51B8-48A9-A287-AD8F0B8B9A0F_1_201_aBA92A81A-9BA3-4705-9993-C8CB384573B1_4_5005_c

I layered two sentiments on top of each other to create this , I wanted it to fill up the lower portion of the panel.

Thanks for the visit to day and God bless you.

E9619F1F-99CA-43FA-BD65-C4BC69ECD847_1_201_a

I cut many layers in quite a few colors to see what I wanted to use.

B5ECCFD0-9E10-42C0-8F17-D2DA2F74AC2B_1_201_a

I wanted to show you the fun leftovers of this die great for confetti and for shaker cards.

It's very simple to add a few dots on the back of the die to adhere to the base of your card.

07C68A18-3071-4F74-868E-CE45D870FCB1_1_201_a

I layered my card base with a few colors adhered just a bit down from the layer before. 

I think this would be beautiful in all white as well for an anniversary card etc.

86F1C91C-62F3-4AD7-893C-B6B6015E07BB

The card above it the one that I layered three times , then added some Martha Stewart glitter to the centers. So many options for this beautiful Poppystamps die. The sentiment is from  Memory box : Valentine Fun CL489  I used the same stamp set for both cards.

E0BDFEC6-735B-4E07-837D-018332B87124 

This card above it a bit more simple and so easy to make. One layer with a simple envelope using Poppystamps :Stitched Envelope craft die. I cut a piece of paper to fit inside then stamped the Hugs sentiments using Memory box clear stamp called: Valentine Fun Cl489

O Holy Night
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572808249747E12

Hi Poppy fans! It's now 5 days till Christmas and I have a card for you that shows the calm of that holy night.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I die cut and Copic colored the Whittle sleepy fox and the village houses. I picked out the windows from the houses and colored them individually so the houses look like they're filled with light and trees.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I forgot to take a picture of the background (sorry) but before assembling I inkblended the backgrond with oxide inks and splattered it with silver acrylic paint. I hand cut 2 panels for snowy hills and inked the top of them. The top layer is popped up. I then popped up the houses and fox and shaded under them with Copic markers. Notice the fox' pawprints. He loves the silence and the squeeking snow.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

My plan was to use the O holy noght flourish as smoke from one of the chimneys, and so I wanted to heat emboss it. In order not to break the intricate cut I layered 5 cuts. I then heat embossed 3 layers of WOW! white twinkle embossing powder. It's white with silver glitter and perfect for the smoke.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

This is my last post this year, so I thank you for all your sweet comments and I hope your Christmas is as calm and cozy as this scene.  I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Penguin shaker
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572810370585E12
Hello everyone! We are closing in on that one holy and so very special night and I'm here to share a cute shaker card with you.
IMG_20191127_213640

I first die cut the background and snowy hills of the snowglobe kit. I ink blended the background and the top of the hills using distress oxide inks. I flicked some diluted white acrylic paint over the background for a snowy look.
IMG_20191127_213640

I cut a panel and sprayed it with watercolors sprays. I'll admit this was my first time using them and the intencity of the color kind of surprised me. But I felt the look worked fine for a night time scene. Before the panel dried I also sprayed with a shimmer spray for a clear, frosty and sparkly look.

Poppy shaker2

I die cut the sentiment die and the snowflake tile from silver glitter cardstock. I cut off the frame so I had parts of the snowflakes. Making sure all the elements would fit I glued the sentiment and snowflakes in place. I also added a couple of stars with a white gelly roll pen.
IMG_20191127_213640

I placed the base and frame of the globe as well as the snowy hills. I then added the 2 darling penguins, colored with Copics, and lots of sequins, gems and chunky glitter.
IMG_20191127_213640

The frame of the globe I cut 6-7 times and layered them ending with a layer of acetate and one cut from silver glitter cardstock and placed over the globe. So pretty! I then added the stand of the globe, also Copic colored, popped up with craft foam.

IMG_20191127_213640

So there you have my holiday shaker. I appreciate you stopping by and would love if you would leave me a comment.

Challenge Reminder
by Tina Wilstrup

12-19

Watermark1.574854590872E12

Hello Poppy fans! It's Tina here with a challenge reminder for the last challenge of the year, and of course we're making it about Christmas.
Watermark1.574854590872E12

I'm sharing a fairly simple card, although putting it together was quite tedious. I started by planning out where I wanted to place the beautiful dove cut out, and then first stamped and silver heat embossed the sentiment.
Watermark1.574854590872E12

The dove frame I also heat embossed with silver embossing powder, and the colored inlayed die cut pieces are from some leftover alcohol ink panel using a dark green, teal and silver mixative. If you're die cutting yupo paper, I recommend running it back and forth a couple of times to prevent breakage of those tiny pieces when taking them apart. Now, maybe I was using the wrong glue but those pieces just wouldn't stick, lol. In the end the work and time spent was worth it.
Watermark1.574854590872E12

As a finishing touch I added a couple of silver sequins.

I hope with this card I have inspired you to join our challenge. But in case you need a little more motivation, how about a prize? The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!  You have until 12 am US EST on December 29 to link up your design here!  We'll start a new challenge and announce the winners on  January 1. We can't wait to see what you make!
