Hello there!

 

It's Sphoorti with a gentle reminder of this month's challenge - PSC#94 - Over the Rainbow! Summer is always a feast for the eyes in a rainbow of  color! Bold, beautiful flowers, sweet summer fruits, and a trip to the pool / the beach. This month we want you to add ALL the colors or maybe even an actual rainbow to your project. Your project can be for any occasion, just be sure to include at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!

This was my take on the challenge. Hope you like them!

 

Card # 1:

 

EC6B4A31-DD06-4A61-A209-9FCAA0D58F1C

 

For my first card, I took the leaves from the Maple Symphony craft die and colored them with distress inks. I used my usual favorites: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Picked Raspberry and ink blended over the leaves (in that order).

I foam mounted the leaves along the bottom of my card base.

 

18BCDD70-295B-4416-BCEA-32A2F8C08C42

 

I took some Perfect Pearls in Gold and Perfect Pearl (silver / whitish) colors and splattered them over the leaves and bottom border of the card.

 

18BCDD70-295B-4416-BCEA-32A2F8C08C42

 

Then, I took a Sakura Quickie Glue pen and drew little dots around the leaves on the card base. After they were fully dry, I took some Therm O Web Deco Foil in the rainbow color and applied it to the dots (so that the colors of the foil match the leaf colors). Absolutely loved this effect! I couldn't capture it on camera but it's really fun to see in real life, and pretty too!

 

18BCDD70-295B-4416-BCEA-32A2F8C08C42

 

I took a hot foiled sentiment from the PSF802 Modest Greetings 1 Hot Foil Plate and Die (the "Just a Note" one), cut it out in shape of a banner and foam mounted it on the right side above the leaves. And that was it! What do you think?

Card # 2:

 

82BD407A-34C1-40F5-A7EF-BE92650A8311

 

For my second card, I took the Leafy Garden Border craft die and cut out a number of die cuts from it. I layered them on top of each other in order to create a chipboard-like die cut (for stability and a raised look because as Laura Bassen sings - "Dimension is liiiiiiife!")

 

DCB0D608-8466-4867-90C2-70300BBF7FB6

 

I used the same distress inks that I used on the first card to ink blend over the leafy border.

DCB0D608-8466-4867-90C2-70300BBF7FB6

 

I took a hot foiled sentiment from the PSF808 Modest Greetings 2 Hot Foil Plate and Die (the "You're so kind" one), cut it out in shape of a banner and foam mounted it on the right side above the leaves. And that was it! What do you think?

Housewarming Congrats!

Happy Wednesday, friends! Tiffany here with some inspiration for this month's Poppystamps challenge. This month is all about rainbows - my favorite!! We want you to add ALL the colors or maybe even an actual rainbow to your project.  Your project can be for any occasion, just be sure to include at least one Poppystamps (stamp or die) on your project! We can't wait to see what you make. My dear friend recently purchased her first home so I wanted to make a card congratulating her! Since this month's theme is rainbows, why not a rainbow neighborhood? 

This CAS card was easy to make - die cutting took the longest. To start, I made a mini slimline card panel from white cardstock. I trimmed the panel to 6.25 x 3.25 inches. I splattered the panel with black spray ink for additional interest. 

20220630_131819

Next, I die cut the house from the Layered Global house die set multiple times from a rainbow of cardstock. This house die was meant to be used in the snowglobe die set for winter/holidays, but the house is perfect for year round. Take a look at your seasonal products to see how you may use them all year. It is a good way to get more from your stash. Each house used two colors of cardstock - darker for the top layer and a lighter shade from the backing. I used coordinating colors of copic markers to darken the roof and doors.

20220630_131826

I adhered the houses with foam tape for dimension. I used my t-ruler to ensure they were aligned straight, but this design could look great with random/scattered placement as well. For a little sparkle, I added glitter brush marker on the doors.

For the sentiment, I hot foiled the Modest Greetings 1 on black cardstock with silver glimmer foil. I die cut the sentiment with the coordinating strip die. I added silver twine behind the sentiment strip and adhered to the card front with foam tape. For dark paper, I recommend using black foam tape. Or you can color the edges of white foam tape with a black marker. Before adhering the card front to my card base, I trimmed it a little bit and matted it with a piece of black cardstock.

Hope you pull out your supplies and join us for this month's challenge. Until next time, enjoy your day!

Stained Glass Butterflies
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps 6.20.22.1

Hi there crafty friends. Candice here on the blog with a colorful and creative card share. Today's card features the new Stained Glass Butterfly collage die from the latest Poppystamps release.

Poppystamps 6.20.22.2

I created the card by first die cutting the butteflies from a slimline piece of black cardstock. The die cuts one cluster of butterflies. So once I die cut the first cluster from the top of the card front, I die cut the butterflies again at the bottom of the card front panel. 

Poppystamps 6.20.22.3

Next, I took the same size slimline panel in white cardstock and blended some distress inks onto the panel in rainbow order. I did not bother to blend the colors completely for a smooth look.

Poppystamps 6.20.22.4

Then I adhered the black die cut panel of butterflied onto the rainbow blended cardstock with liquid glue. The rainbow butterflies immediately come to life once the black cardstock is adhered. 

Poppystamps 6.20.22.5

Next I foiled the sentiment Thinking of you with some silver foil paper and my Go Press and Foil machine. The sentiment comes from the new You Are Amazing Poe Script Grettings Foil and Cut die set. I also die cut a few butterflies from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set from Gold Mirror cardstock and adhered the butterflies to the card with some liquid adhesive. The sentiment was popped up on 3M foam tape.  
Poppystamps 6.20.22.7

Lastly,  I used my white craft paint  and a pain brust to add splatters to the card panel for added interest. I think today's card came out absolutely stunning. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time happy crafting!

Hello Sunshine
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps 3.30.22.1

Hello crafty friends, hope you are all enjoying your week. 

Today's card share is magical theme card  using our popular Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit and the new Colorful Life stamps set.  I just love the unicorn and rainbow dies in this set. These two dies combined with the coordinating sentiments from the Colorful Life stamps make awesome magical themed cards. 

Poppystamps 3.30.22.2

Although the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit comes with its own sentiment stamp, I think the new Colorful Life stamp set has good sentiments to coordinate with kit.

Poppystamps 3.30.22.3

This card comes together very easily. I simply die cut all of the elements of the unicorn and rainbow from white cardstock.  Then with my copic markers I colored in the unicorn. Next, I die cut the wings and the horn of the unicorn from some gold cardstock scraps and adhered it to the unicorn with liquid glue for added interest.

I used my distress oxide inks in peacock feathers, mustard seed, twisted citron, spun sugar, wild honey and picked raspberry to color each of the rays on the rainbow.  To color the rays I used the direct to paper method and swiped each ink pad onto the white cardstock. 

Poppystamps 3.30.22.4

Lastly I die cut the stars from some yellow cardstock scraps and stamped the sentiment in versafine onxy black ink.  The card front panel is popped up on foam tape for added dimension and interest. 

I hope you liked today's card project and found inspiration. I know many of the design team members have been making unicorn cards lately, so hopefully this design provides you with another way to use the kit. 

Until next time....Happy Crafting!

More ways to use the Flower Field Frame craft die
by Sphoorti

BD6D1322-6540-465C-A7E4-E2D047031924

 

 

Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

Sphoorti again! I have two other cards that I made with the Flower Field Frame Craft Die and I wanted to share them with you guys.

 

Card # 1:

 

75D695F7-4205-4230-9239-5F3D0D9960FD

 

This one was the easier version. I started by taking a 5.5 x 4.25" panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock and ink blended using some distress inks - Candied Apple, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet.I took the Perfect Pearl powders in silver and gold and splattered drops all over it for some sparkle and sheen.

 

Next, I took a top folding landscape card that measures 5.5" x 4.25". I scored it along the x-axis (horizontally) halfway down from the top of the card. I took 2 sentiment stamps, one that says "You're amazing" from the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit, and another that says "Thank you for every-fin" from the Whittle Sealife Sentiments clear stamp set. I did what I liked to call a "stamputation". I cut the sentiment so that I'd have a piece just with the "Thank you" portion. I could have masked it off, but I don't think I'll use this full sentiment that often anyway. This way I can reuse the "Thank you" part without having to mask it in the future.

 

Then, I took the Flower Field Frame Craft Die and cut out a layer of Neenah Solar White 110 pound cardstock. I took my big mama roll of 3M Foam Tape and cut up tiny pieces of it and put them on the back of the frame. I must be out of my dimension loving mind because I ended up with this:

 

IMG-9954

 

And I still feel bad because I missed a few spots! Anyway, you might be wondering why I chose to take the time to cut up so many slivers of foam tape instead of just taking multiple die cuts and stacking them together. Well, I did that too! And I used that version for Card # 2. But for this card, I chose the foam tape option because you'll see that when you use foam tape versus stacking them on top of each other, the shadow effect is more prominent. Don't get me wrong, I like both effects it's just what effect I'm going for at the time.

 

Please do compare the two pictures of the completed cards and let me know if you see it, or if it's just me. Here's a picture of the two versions before I assembled the cards.

 

IMG-9955

 

Now for the best part - assembly! I removed foam take backers off and stuck the frame down over the blended rainbow of colors with the sentiment at the center. I then took a number of pearls in various sizes and adhered them to the centers of the flowers. I foam mounted this card panel on a top folding 4.25 x 5.5" card base et viola!

 

B2B463AB-4F96-4940-AFCC-4AFAE3AB0773

 

E4D58555-278E-4DFE-8A14-76C615FC7145

 

AAF9D061-C5BD-4587-9E33-8CB3960349D6

 

Card # 2

 

C63459AD-2E30-4680-9533-ED30D458AED0

 

This one was even more time consuming than the first, if you can believe it! Die-cutting 6 - 7 layers of the Flower Field Frame and gluing them together is no easy feat! But totally worth it!

 

46632FAE-0B55-44C0-9781-DF283FF61195

 

I ink blended the background the same way I did for the first car, and used the same perfect pearl mixture to splatter some shine all over the card. 

 

Then, I stacked the die cuts and glued them together with liquid glue. The inner perimeter doesn't have any gaps, so I figured - why not make it a shaker? So, I took a piece of acetate roughly the same size as the outer perimeter and cut it up. Once I layered the acetate on top of the stacked set of die cuts, I used another die cut to cover it up the outline of the acetate. I used the same stamps that I used for Card # 1 on this card too. I just made the mistake of forgetting to stamp the acetate before layering it. Lesson learned. I stamped it anyway and where I couldn't get a good impression, I used a permanent marker to fill in the gaps. Can you tell?

 

D622D49E-BB5B-4330-A427-9FE464B26AFD

 

I filled the innards with a mixture of confetti, sequins and pearls. I glued some of the innards to the back of the card as well so that even when the card is upright, there are still some shaker bits scattered throughout the top. One thing I wish I did differently was flip the pearls right side up before sealing the shaker. The shaker well isn't deep enough to allow the pearls to flip back and forth, so the ones that were facing down when I sealed the shaker are going to remain that way forever.

 

8AFED349-0D6F-40F1-9BC8-58B4277E9869

 

Then, I adhered my favorite clear fairy drops at the centers of all the flowers. I mounted this panel on a top folding 5.5 x 4.25 card base and called it done.

 

CF9CAE08-B097-41E1-91D5-6AC0077138F8

 

Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? Which card did you like better? Please do let me know! We love to hear from you! Thank you for sticking with me through the end of this post!

Love,

Sphoorti
