Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.

IMG_20200721_221955

First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.

Peony Bud Wreath
by Sue McRae

IMG_1635c

Welcome crafty friends to another day of inspiration! Today I have a card featuring one of the small images from the Peony Garden Corner stamp set.

Do you ever feel like the small images in a stamp set get ignored because the large image or images catches our eye first? I know I’m guilty of this so I thought I would pick one of the smaller or filler images from the stamp set and let it be the focal of my card.

IMG_1633c

I stamped and die cut a bunch of the peony buds from white card stock and coloured them in a rainbow of shades using my Copics. I knew I wanted to make a wreath with them and played around with round and oval shapes and decided to go the oval route.

For the flower background I used the Ring Tile Stencil with light grey ink and blended it unevenly, leaving some spots lighter and some spots darker. I then added my flower buds which are mounted with foam tape. I felt like it needed a little something more so I die cut berries from glitter card stock and placed them around the wreath.

IMG_1626c

I stamped my sentiment on the inside of the wreath and die cut the happy birthday sentiment from 3 layers of black card stock and added that to the bottom of the panel.

The panel was foam mounted onto my white card base and I used a glitter pen to add a bit of sparkle to the centre of the flower buds.

Thanks for stopping by today and let me know in the comments if you like using those smaller images in your stamp set or if you tend to forget about them.

Wishing you a sunshiny day!

You're an Amazing Friend by Jennifer Svare

Friend1

Hello!  Today I've made a card from the Raining Frame die, along with the sentiment "You are an Amazing Friend" from the Springtime Fun clear stamp set (which is also on sale right now)!  

Friend2

The die cuts out the umbrella which adds a lot of versatility for color combos and layering.  For this card, I layered several colors of the umbrella so that it shows a colorful appearance from the sides to match the rainbow. It also adds great dimension.  The rainbow and umbrella both have a coat of clear glitter pen applied for sparkle.

Friend_1

As shown in the photo above, I started off by masking off where the rainbow would be so that the gray clouds could be stenciled all over the background. 


Friend_3
Using Hickory Smoke and Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink, along with a cloud stencil from my stash, I lightly stenciled clouds into the background.

Friend_4

I then masked off everything but where the rainbow would be.  Using small daubers, I inked on vertical lines of color, using a scrap piece of paper to mask off the lines as I created them.  Any rainbow technique would work here, but I wanted each of the color segments to remain vibrant.  The colors were lightly blended together after each segment was first masked off.  (See the photo below)  I wasn't too worried about the lines of color being too separated because at the end, I'll use a glitter pen to add shimmer which will also help with blending.

Friend_5

Here's how it looked after blending with the glitter pen:

Friend_6

Umbrellas were cut using scrap pieces of many colors.  I placed the scraps over just the umbrella portion of the die so only small pieces of colored cardstock was needed.

Friend_7
This is how the umbrella looks with the layers of color stacked together:

Friend_8

For future cards, I would add the sentiment using my Misti or stamping tool before gluing in the umbrella.  This way, I could ensure a couple layers of ink for extra boldness. (The umbrella adds dimension, so it doesn't lay flat in the stamping tool). I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and card!  Have a wonderful day!

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!

Rainbow Hearts
by Sue McRae

IMG_0684c

Hello everyone! Sue here with a cheery rainbow card using one of the Valentine's Day dies from the new release.

Not all heart cards have to be for Valentine's Day, try thinking outside the box in using them in your every day crafting.

I'm sure most of you have lots of scrap card stock lying around, I know I do. So today I'm using up the scraps to make my own rainbow background.

IMG_0650c

Pick whatever colours make you happy for creating your background. I went with a rainbow but you could use different shades of one colour. I cut strips 0.25" and 0.5" wide because I wasn't sure what I was going to do at first. I arranged the colours horizontally and then decided I liked them on a diagonal better and I put a couple of wider strips with the narrow ones just to mix it up. I added my strips to a piece of white card stock that I covered with double sided adhesive. Once I filled my panel with all the strips I trimmed off all the ends.

IMG_0659c

I die cut the Samba Heart Border from white card stock and adhered it the panel. I used the same colours from my background to die cut the hearts. I cut small squares from the coloured card stock and taped them to the back of the border die so I could cut several hearts in different colours at the same time. It only took 3 passes to die cut all the hearts I needed.

IMG_0672c

I added the hearts with foam tape for dimension and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Art Deco You Are Wonderful stamp set. 

IMG_0687c

To finish off I added a thin strip of black card stock to the heart panel and some iridescent bubbles.

IMG_0680c

I hope you give this idea a try. It's an easy way to add some fun colour to a card. I have enough strips leftover to make another panel for a future project. Bonus!

Rainbow Shaker
by Sue McRae

IMG_0565c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a colourful rainbow shaker card.

IMG_0526c

I love a good rainbow so I decided to pull out some of my favorite alcohol inks and make a rainbow heart card. I used Yupo paper, alcohol inks, blending solution, rubbing alcohol and an air blower.

IMG_0540c

I put some blending solution on the yupo and added dots of color in a row up the paper and moved the ink around with the air blower until I was happy with the blending.

IMG_0543c

Using the Grid Heart Frame I die cut the panel, adhered a piece of clear plastic on the back and added a double layer of foam tape around the frame and in between each row of hearts. If you only add foam to the outside of the panel all the sequins would fall to the bottom and I didn't want that. I wanted to have sequins in each row of hearts and I wanted the sequins in each row to match the colour of the inks.

IMG_0568c

I adhered white card stock to the back of the panel so the sequin colours would pop against the white.

IMG_0562c

For the sentiments I used three from the Whittle Love Sentiments set that are perfect for sending to a friend. I white heat embossed the sentiments on black card stock and punched them out with circle punches. I wanted to keep the sentiments small so they wouldn't cover up too much of the fabulous rainbow shaker!

IMG_0555c

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Hope you make a shaker card for a friend, I know it will put a smile on her face!
