Hey crafty friends! Tiffany here with some more fun, fall inspiration for you. I made this simple, colorful card using only a few Poppystamps products. I started my card by stamping and gold heat embossing the main image from Diamond Sentiments stamp set on watercolor paper. I watercolored the image with some watercolor brush markers in my stash in an array of autumnal colors.

While my watercolored image was drying, I worked on the die cuts. I wanted to make the leaves and foliage look more lush, so I decided to use the Leafy Garden Border die. I ink blended several panels of cardstock with a variety of distress oxide inks and die cut the panels multiple times with the border die. I added splatters of leftover watercolor on the leaves for some subtle detail. Once dry, I trimmed each die cut in half and arranged it behind the focal image. After I arranged the leaves, I used Press'n Seal to pick everything up, add glue and adhered it to a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack.

Inside the diamond, I stamped one of the sentiments in the Diamond Sentiment stamp set in Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink. To bring in some more gold, I gold heat embossed the edges of a piece of white cardstock. I simply pressed my sticky embossing ink directly to the paper and ran it along the four sides. It was not perfect and that was ok because I wanted a distressed look to match the card. I adhered everything to an A2-sized card base, added a few fairy jewels, and that's it! Hope you enjoyed the card and found some inspiration!

Art Deco Happy Birthday
by Sue McRae

20210814_090442c

Happy Monday everyone! Sue here with an easy card that comes together quickly with the use of patterned paper.

20210814_090315c

I’m using the new Reeded Deco Curve Border that goes with the Art Deco theme that was released a few weeks ago.

I die cut the border twice in purple from the Frosted Glitter Pad and adhered them to a plaid design from the Madras Plaid Blue and Violet Paper Pad, making sure to centre the borders on the design. It’s more pleasing for the eyes.

For the sentiment I used silver from the Polished Foil Paper Pad and the Happy Birthday Poe Script.

To finish off the card I added Fairy Jewels in clear on the four corners. You could definitely add more Fairy Jewels to glitz it up. I also think this is a great card design for a guy with the plaid. Just choose a different colour palette!

Thanks for visiting with me and have a great week!

Art Deco Happy Birthday
by Tiffany Pryce

20210715_135459

Hello friends! Tiffany here with more Art Deco inspiration from the Summer Theater release. When I was thinking about this card, the Wizard of Oz kept coming to mind. The glitz, green, and opulence of the Emerald City was my inspiration, along with the sample from the Poppystamps website.

Here's a look at all of the supplies I used for this card. I like that it is easy to mass produce with minimal supplies and can be customized to fit your recipient. Another bonus is that it is flat so it will go through the mail easily.

I started by trimming a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack. I choose a pattern with geometric shapes to go along with the Art Deco theme. Anyone else keep pattern paper forever? I encourage you to use it as a background to any card! Then, I die cut the Reeded Deco Curve Border die from green foil cardstock from the Polished Foil Pad. I die cut twice to create the border around my sentiment. The emerald green color is so pretty.

For the sentiment, I die cut an oval from the center of my pattern paper. I ink blended some dark green dye ink around the edges for a halo effect, and silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Art Deco Birthday Greetings stamp set. Finally, I added green Fairy Jewels around my card for a little sparkle.

Challenge Reminder: Just Add Water
by Nancy Penir

Hello! I have a challenge reminder for you. This month's inspiration is: 'Just Add Water'.

 

DSC_0016 3_wm

I chose to do an underwater scene with Open Studio's  fabulous new embossing folder.

I began with an aqua cardstock, embossed it, and added Perfect Pearls for a shimmer. Haven't played with my perfect pearls for a while. I just love the sheen it gives the tops of the embossing.

Also added some copper pearling (very light handed with the copper!).

To finish my card, I stamped a message from Poppy's new Art Deco Stamp set, with a strip of the pattern paper at the top.

The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!

Many ways to go with this challenge... watercolor? underwater? beach scene? Good Luck! Can't wait wait to see your creations!

Sweet Thanks
by Tiffany Pryce

20210530_124405

Hi friends! Tiffany here with a sweet, thank you card featuring Whittles from the latest Poppystamps release. I played with the Whittle critters previously so I wanted to try incorporating some of the Whittle food into a card design. This one was simple and lays pretty flat, so it will be easy to mass produce and send through the mail. Win-win!

I started with my base layers. On an A2-sized card base, I trimmed and added a piece of pattern paper from the Spring Plaid paper pack. For the last base layer, I die cut a piece of white cardstock with the largest layer from the Postage Rectangle Layers. I normally add a foam sheet to one or more of my base layers for dimension, but I wanted an easy to mail card. If you are missing dimension, but still want a fairly flat card, you could double or triple up any of the base layer panels.

Next, I worked on die cutting all my card elements. Out of multiple cardstock colors, I die cut the Whittle donut, popsicle, and cupcake several times. I also die cut everything from white cardstock so I could add an extra cardstock layer to each die cut for more stability. If you ever have trouble choosing a color palette, a safe formula that I like to follow is to choose two shades of the same color, a complementary/contrasting color, and a neutral. In my card, I used two shades of purple-pink, yellow as it is opposite the color wheel from purple, and gray as my neutral. Try this simple formula in your next card to see if it works, but don't be afraid to break all the "rules" and play with colors however you see fit!

In a 3x3 grid pattern, I mixed and matched the die cuts in various color combinations. I adhered the die cuts askew so it did not have to align perfectly. I think it adds a bit more whimsy to the design. After everything was adhered, I added glitter highlights on each piece. I couldn't make a sugary, sweet card without any glitter! For extra detail, you could add glossy accents to the icing or popsicles.

Lastly, I added my sentiment strips. From the Whittle Love Sentiments set, I performed stamp surgery on two sentiments to change their orientation. Don't be afraid to carefully alter your stamps to make them work for you and your card designs. I stamped them in clear embossing ink and heat embossed in white on dark gray cardstock. I cut little notches on the ends to mimic a banner.

Hope you found some inspiration in this card and are enjoying your weekend. Take care!
