Blog Blitz Giveaway
by Sue McRae

IMG_1212c

Welcome to another day of our spring Blog Blitz! There's been lots of inspirational projects using the fabulous new products from Poppystamps!

Today I have a simple shaker card using the new Berry Square Frame.

I started by creating a panel using alcohol inks in blues and aquas on Yupo paper. I cut a piece from this panel to be the background of my shaker square.

IMG_1163c

The Berry Square Frame was cut from white card stock and also cut from my white card front because I'm making an inlaid shaker. The frame will sit in the square die cut.

IMG_1219c

I took the Garden Leaves and Berries and die cut the berries a bunch of times from the same white card stock and adhered them to the front panel. Then I assembled the shaker part and attached the panel to a white card base.

IMG_1222c

For the sentiment I die cut the Doodle Happy Birthday 4 times from black card stock to give it height so it can pop from the textured background.

Valentine's Day Shaker Card
by Nadine Carlier

Valentines Day Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a Valentine's Day shaker card. Have you all started making your Valentine's Day cards yet?
For my card, I used the Poppystamps Grid Heart Frame cut from white cardstock and the Graceful Heart Frame cut once from white cardstock and once from pink vellum. To adhere the two Graceful Heart Frame layers together, I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite. I then adhered the two layers onto the Grid Heart Frame layer.

1

Instead of using acetate to make my shaker card I decided to use some pink vellum behind the Grid Heart Frame. I then added some 3D Foam Tape and for the inside of my shaker, I used the hearts that were cut out from the Grid Heart Frame and some pink seed beads.

2

Then I took the big heart that was cut from the Graceful Heart Frame and used one of the stamps from the Poppystamps Valentine's Fun Clear Stamp Set and stamped it with Delicata Pink Shimmer ink.

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!

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.

Shake It Up!
by Sue McRae

IMG_0119c

Hello everyone, Sue here with a Christmas shaker card!

Who doesn't love getting a fun shaker card, I know I do, but it's also fun to make them! I used the new Snowglobe Kit which makes it so easy to put together.

IMG_0100c

I started off my die cutting all my pieces. I used some patterned paper from Memory Box for the trees, wood grain card stock for the snow drifts, wood paper for the moose and base of the snow globe.

IMG_0105c

The background piece is navy card stock but I wanted to make the edges darker and used Distress Ink to achieve this.

IMG_0111c

After adhering all my pieces down I added small star sequins to the night sky and I have my acetate piece ready with the double layer of foam adhesive. A little tip, when you're adding foam adhesive to a curved item peel the paper backing off both sides of the foam, it will be so much easier to bend it around the circle.

IMG_0114c

Now I've added my iridescent mica flakes on top of the snow globe piece and will place the acetate window piece over this. I find it much easier to do it this way than adding the shaker elements inside the window and trying to centre the snow globe piece on top.

IMG_0127c

For the card background I used a piece of patterned paper with Twas the Night Before Christmas text and added a Double Stitch Rectangle Frame along with the the snow globe and base.

IMG_0137c

Have you made a shaker card before? Let me know in the comments.

Happy crafting!

Hello Christmas
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6447-wm

Hello Christmas! Ho Ho Ho! Everybody's waiting for the man with the bag, so I just had to add him to this fun holiday shaker card! Isn't it jolly?

IMG_6449-wm

This holly jolly shaker was so much fun to make! I started out by cutting out the Holly Frame and Stencil in holiday green, and the Whittle Santa Face in red, white, and beige.

IMG_6429-wm

I traced and cut the background paper from this beautiful new cardstock from Memory Box, which features these tiny little holly and berry images! Adorable!

IMG_6430-wm

I lined up the shaker circle and used the Double Stitch Circle Frames to create the shaker card opening on my holly and berry background panel.

IMG_6431-wm

New this year from Memory Box are super sticky and wide washi tapes! I taped the snowflake washi over a piece of light grey cardstock, then cut a square to fit behind my shaker window.

IMG_6432-wm

Then I loaded up my shaker with a sparkly holiday sequin mix, using snowflakes, red, green, blue, and pink sequins. It really looks festive against the light grey and the snowflakes of the washi tape.

IMG_6434-wm

I added a little pink blush to Santa's cheeks with a cotton swab and my favorite ink, stacked up three mustaches, and topped off Santa's hat with a tiny white pom pon. Ho Ho Ho!

IMG_6438-wm

Adhere Santa to the front of your acetate window, add the Hello Outline and a few sequins and you are ready to say Hello Christmas!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Challenge Reminder: A Witchy Halloween Shaker Card
by Nadine Carlier

Halloween Witch Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a reminder to enter the PSC#61 Enchanted Challenge.  The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is "Enchanted". Plus if you enter you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!!

Halloween Witch Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I had made a video showing you all how I created this card but technology was not on my side and somehow the video got corrupted so I lost it. :( So I will do my best to explain how I created my card.
I first started with a white piece of cardstock for my card front and rounded off the top of it.  Then using some Copic markers and an airbrush machine I sprayed the top half with some orange markers and the bottom half with green markers. I then took the Poppystamps Magical Cauldron Die and cut it out of the background piece I used the Copics on. For the witch, I used the Poppystamps Spellcaster Witch Die and cut the witch out of black cardstock. Just under the Cauldron, I used the Fa-Boo-Lous stamp from the Halloween Fun Stamp Set. Where I cut out the cauldron on the backside I added a piece of acetate and then added some 3D foam tape around the cauldron to add some shaker elements and then went all the way around the rest of the back of the card front with the 3D foam tape. Then attached the card front the card base to seal in the shaker elements.

Halloween Witch Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier 2

Using one of the circles from the MemoryBox Basic Circle dies I cut out a moon and used airbrushed some yellow Copic Markers on it and adhered it to my card. Stamped some bats from the Halloween Fun Stamp Set around the moon. Then I adhered the witch to the front of the card with some 3D foam squares.

For all the details on the challenge click HERE!  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

See you next time!

Boo-Yah!
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0017

Hello Poppy Friends! Thought I'd bring you some Halloween inspiration from the new release. Hope you're well on your way with your Halloween cards. This one goes to a special grandson in the Marines. He completed basic training and is currently in the infantry. I'm so proud of this young man, and sending him cards brings me joy, and I hope he gets a big smile from them!

DSC_0016_wm

A shaker is always fun to receive, and is really very easy. Here's how I did this one.

DSC_0020

To create my spooky night sky, I covered my A2 sized card with Oxide Inks.

DSC_0022

I'm sure you all know what happens when water hits the oxide inks. Just be sure to let it dry before the next step.

DSC_0026 2

I used my metallic watercolor paints to flick drops of copper onto the panel.

DSC_0002

I repeated the entire technique with a panel of yellow, orange and pink oxide inks. I die cut Surprise Skeleton 3 times. (Note: the die was cut 3 times before inking and adding droplets. I masked the 3 circles and added my sentiment, first stamped in black, then clear versa mark) The sequin mix will be confined to the 3 windows.

DSC_0009

Surprise Skeleton is just too cute to be scary, don't you think? Hope you have a crafty week ahead, always the best kind!
