Corner Shop Pop-Up Easel Card
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6775
I would love to live in a world where the streets are lined with darling shops like this!  Wouldn't you?  Birgit here with you today sharing a pop-up easel card using Corner Shoppe Pop-up Easel Set as well as coordinating die sets from the latest release.  Let's jump right in to the details!

IMG_6761

To begin with, I cut the pop-up die panel out of 80# white cardstock and folded on both of the score lines, to create the easel part of the card.

Next, cut one card front panel and adhere it to the small flap of the easel, using a strong double sided tape or liquid glue.  Now, let the fun begin!  Let's build the shop.

I cut the store front out of a piece of blue cardstock from the 6x6 Lagoon Solid Core Cardstock.  I love the weight and thickness of this cardstock and it cuts like butter using Poppystamps dies.

I cut the detail pieces of the shop out of white cardstock and added color using Distress inks and blending brushes.  A helpful tip:  keep your cardstock pieces inside the dies, to use them as stencils.  Poppystamps is brilliant in their designs!

Next, I cut elements from Corner Shoppe Wooden Cart and Flower and Leaf Sprinkles and colored them using my copic markers.  I then arranged all of the planters using liquid glue. 

IMG_6776Now it's time to decorate the shop!  

IMG_6767

A card like this deserves special attention on the inside, so I added a piece of decorative paper from my scrap bin and cut a white cardstock square to give the easel something to rest against to hold the easel open.  For a finishing touch, I added the window box from the set.  It adds a nice detail but leaves plenty of space for me to personalize this beautiful card.

Here's a pictures that shows the completed easel card in action.

A Flower Shoppe Thank You!
by Rachel Duong

IMG_5171

Hi everyone! It's Rachel here to share a thank you card I made. I used the Poppystamps "Corner Shoppe Flower Pot Shelves" and "Flower and Leaf Sprinkles" die sets. I had the best time watercoloring these awesome plants and pots.

IMG_5146

I die cut the shelves, plants and pots out of watercolor paper. Using distress inks in shades of green, teal, browns, reds and yellow, I loosely painted the pieces allowing colors to run into one another. What a delight!

 

 

IMG_5156

Next I die cut the larget circle from the "Simple Rings" die in a nice peach cardstock Memory Box "Sunny Orange" cardstock pad. I die cut it again in a heavy vellum for the outline it automatically cuts with the circle. I die cut the "Snowglove Bases" set in kraft and I decided to used the smaller base. I blended brown distress ink over the base. 

IMG_5173

Then I picked out a soft plaid paper for the background. It is so pretty and the dark lines are purple. I adhered the patterned paper to a white card base leaving a thin white border. I adhered the globe over the plaid paper.

IMG_5149

I spent quite a bit of time arranging the plants and pots on the shelves. I moved the pots around and a tip is to take pictures of the final arrangement to look at for reference. It comes in handy when gluing the pieces down.

Then I glued the foil tab on the base and added coordinating purple Fairy Jewels.  Finally I wrapped burlap twind at the fold of the card. That's it and so many sentiments can go on this card!

This card was such a joy to create. I love gardening so working with paper plants just makes me happy! Yay! Please take a look at Poppystamps latest release. The dies are amazing and the pieces work together perfectly. 

Have a great day and see you very soon!

Amazing Whittle Giraffe!
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6331
Howdy~ho Poppystamps friends!  I have the cuuuuutest card to share with you today, featuring the fun Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit.  Do you see a little sneak peek behind the scenes?  Lets jump right in and I'll give you all the details.

IMG_6327I knew I wanted to use the Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit, so I cut the giraffes out of a piece of pale yellow cardstock from the 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad.  I cut the tree pieces and the clouds out of a piece of white cardstock that had been previously embossed with a large polka dot pattern, which I found in my box of scraps.  I added color to each of the pieces using Copic markers on the giraffes and tree trunk and Distress Oxide inks on the clouds and tree canopies.  (I had cut two of the canopies).  Now what to do with the background??

IMG_6326I was a bit perplexed on what to do for a background until I came across the Nordic Flower Heads from the spring release.  I cut them out three times using soft yellow and soft orange from the same 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad, and a piece of cream colored cardstock from my scrap box.  I commenced to laying the flowers out in a random pattern, trying to mix up the colors as much as I could, while covering the front of an A2 sized card.  I snipped off the flower pieces that were overhanging the sides and cut a piece of vellum that measured 4"x5 1/4" and glued it to the top of the flowery background.

IMG_6329

Next, I glued the scenery pieces onto the front of the card, over the vellum layer.  I cut both the wavy and straight banners from the Sentimental Banners set out of white cardstock and had to decide which of the wonderful sentiments I was going to use. 

IMG_6332

I finally setting on "You are Amazing".

I think this card turned out so fun!

It's A Celebration!
by Rachel Duong

IMG_4825

It's a birthday celebration! Hi, I am Rachel, back with a card using the latest Poppystamps release. I cannot express how much fun these party goods are to create with. The dies have happy, joy and yum written all over them. So I can't wait any longer, let me tell you how I made this card!

IMG_4814

I began my card with the background. I die cut the Poppystamps "Scallop Pinpoint Rings" using three shades of purplish pinks. After I decided which colors go where, I glued them down to a light grey cardbase. 

IMG_4782

 Next I die cut tons of pieces from the "Corner Shoppe Birthday Treats", the "Corner Shoppe Birthday Celebrations", and the "Corner Shoppe Dessert Stand". I used many colors, glitters and pearlized papers. Fun was putting the color combinations together!IMG_4772

I used pearlized silver for the display stands and pearlized gold for the coverings on them. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in silver. The die comes with the stamp set. For an accent, I cut a fine strip of silver glitter to add over the top of the sentiment.
IMG_4766

The candles on the cake are die cut in pearlized white. I embellished the flames with Stickles yellow and orange glitter glue. The banners are cut in many papers, I also die cut two in the purplish pink papers and left in one layer to act as a background. I added jewels on the pearlized green streamer!IMG_4759

I arranged the cupcakes so that each base was a different color. I mixed up the sizes but kept them symmetrical. I added cupcakes at the bottom to fill in empty space and two jewels for balance.

IMG_4763

The sparkle and shine of these amazing papers add so much dimension to this awesome card.  I had the happiest time putting these desserts together. And it made me hungry! 

IMG_4816

I hope you grab a few of these die sets. I can think of so many fun ideas to try! Also, there are more pieces I can't wait to play with. The cake comes with another layer and balloons too! Oh, did I mention there are ice cream cones too?!

Have a great day. Celebrate something fun today. I am celebrating spring!

Happy Easter! "Mixed Media Mash-Up" Challenge Reminder
by Rachel Duong

 

IMG_4281

Hi It's Rachel here with a Happy Easter card in Mixed Media Mash-Up style! I used the Poppystamps "Thoughtful Bunny Duo" die. I hope you will join the Poppystamps Challenge. Just scroll down to the Challenge on the blog and click for all the details. 

IMG_4217

To create this card, I die cut the "Thoughtful Bunny Duo" using the "Delicate Glitter" and "Glitzy Glitter" pads. Next I die cut the "Proper Happy Easter" sentiment die from the "Rainbow Reflections Mirror" pad and the "Vibrant Violet" paper pad. (These paper pads by Memory Box are listed below.) I glued the pieces together and set them aside. 

IMG_4220

For the background, I used Open Studio Watercolor Paper, delicate finish. I layered distress inks mixed with generous amounts of water. Next I stamped "Banner Greetings" stamps over the lower portion of the cardfront. I used "Salty Ocean" distress ink and misted the sentiments with water to create a subtle, worn look. Then I ran embossing ink over the border and heat embossed silver powder to create a beautiful metallic frame. I roughed up the edges and wrapped teal jute string around the lower portion. 

IMG_4228

 I adhered the bunnies and sentiment to the cardfront and cardbase. Finally, I chose Open Studio "Fairy Jewels" to embellish the card in similar colors present on the background! 

IMG_4280
I hope you love this card, especially the layers of color. So much goodness!

IMG_4231

I would also like to thank my talented friend, Alison Heikkila, for being my guest designer this month. She made the most stunning card in true Mixed Media form. Please check out her awesome card featured on the Challenge post!

Belly Rubs
by Rachel Duong

IMG_4209

Hi to all! It's Rachel here with an adorable card full of puppy love! I used the Poppystamps "Holiday Corgi" and the "Playful Pups" dies. Do you like the corgi's sweater?!

IMG_4207

To create this card I die cut the dogs using scraps of grey, light grey and white. I colored the eyes and noses with a black Sharpie fine tip marker.

IMG_4199

I chose a green plaid from the Memory Box "Anemone Plaid" paper pad and die cut the sweater. Next I die cut the sentiment in Memory Box "Stormy Blue". Then I die cut the "Nordic Floral Plate" in a buttery cream cardstock for the background. I die cut blue, green and grey from the same plate to use pieces to embellish the background.

IMG_4197

Glue all the pieces together. The cream base goes on a white card base. Then the embellishments, the dogs, and the sentiment.

IMG_4203

Finally, I added Stickles glitter glue to the little hearts on the sentiment. Awesome!

IMG_4208

I hope you love this adorable card. I had a wonderful time creating it. I am excited to try making dogs in so many other colors. Until next time, take care and stay healthy!
