Spread your wings and fly

Hello everyone! All good things must come to an end and today I'm sharing my last card for Poppystamps as I chose to step down from the design team due to personal reasons. Butterflies to me symbolise change and growth, so it absolutely fits just right. It wasn't until after I made this card that I thought of the funny coincidence, that I used the Beautiful butterflies sidekick frame on my first card for Poppystamps as well. You can check it out here

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.

The butterfly frame I covered with the coordinating stencil and lightly ink blended a bit of Distress ink over the butterflies. As I assembled the card I didn't like the white frame, so I ended up ink blending the whole frame.

I layered the 3 frames only adding glue to the frames, not stems, flowers or butterflies. I thought it would make it look more airy. I then stamped a sentiment and cut out butterflies from glitter cardstock with the coordinating (and included) butterfly die.

I adhered them with a dot of glue just to the centre of the butterflies for a bit of dimension. Just look at that sparkle.

That's it from me guys, it's time for me to spread my wings and fly. I enjoyed creating with these wonderful dies and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. I'll still be making cards so do stop by my blog or Instagram, I'd sure love to see you!

Hedge-Hugs
by Jeanne Jachna

Hedge-Hugs-Three

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you're staying safe and healthy!  Today I'm sending you hedge hugs with this simple card with lots of details!

Hedge-Hugs-Three

This card starts with a Distress Oxide inked panel of Spun Sugar, Candied Apple, and Mustard Seed.  The creamy pigment ink is easy to blend for quick coverage.  The panel is topped with the Meadowblossom Frame die cut.   The panel is slightly smaller than an A2 size card so the inky edges of the panel can peek from behind.

Hedge-Hugs-One

I added a Luscious Script Hugs in the middle of the heart with a simple sentiment from the Valentines Fairies stamp set.   I adhered it to the card with adhesive foam tape so it is raised from the base of the card.

Hedge-Hugs-Three
I cut a Whittle Hedgehog from white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I colored the entire image in light violet (BV00) and then added a little cheek blush and color to the ear with R01.  Finally I added highlights to the fur and nose with BV04).  I tucked him in under the hugs sentiment.

The finishing touch is the addition of colorful jewels to the flower centers.  I love the extra sparkle and shine.

Hedge-hugs and love to you!  Have a great day!

A Cup For Kitty
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_7043-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad that you have dropped by the Poppystamps blog, because I have a super sweet card to share with you today! This little kitty, like my own kitties at home, is taking a peek to see if there's anything left in the cup for him. Awwww. I'm really happy with the way this card turned out, and with some new elements that I've used in this card as well. Let's take a look.

IMG_7039-wm

I started out with the Fun Floral Sidekick Frame, using the frame and the flower elements included with it, all cut in bright summery colored cardstock. 

IMG_7019-wm

After I cut the frame in a bright shade of green, I set that aside for a minute to create the background panel, using the beautiful Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape from Memory Box. I measured and pre-cut my background piece out of bright white cardstock, then taped and smoothed the washi tape over the top, then trimmed off the edges. This piece was so pretty just as a little card!

IMG_7022-wm

I adhered the frame onto the cardstock panel, added the Classic Coffee Cup with a foam pop dot, added my little grey Whittle Jumping Kitty, then cut a pile of petals and leaves from the Fun Floral Sidekick Frame and Stencil. I also cut a few leaves from Garden Leaves and Berries, and the tiny bird from the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil. I had quite a pile of elements and die cuts to choose from!

IMG_7024-wm

I ended up selecting the three petal blooms, which remind me of water lilies, or tulips, or fuchsia drops, or whatever fun and artsy flowers you can imagine! I added them all to my card using tiny pieces of adhesive foam to make them pop off the page.

IMG_7031-wm

I finished the design with a few sequins and voila! A cup for kitty!

Thanks so much for joining us today, and keep on crafting!

July challenge reminder: Glim and Glam
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.590430226522E12

Hello everyone, Tina here today with a reminder to enter the July Glim and Glam challenge.  The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is crafty and sparkly. Plus, if you enter you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!! Watermark1.590430226522E12

Today I have made a spinner card. I first cut a piece of cardstock to 5.5"x8.5" and scored and folded one end at 1"5/8 and the other end at 2"5/8. I also added the gourgeous wide washi tape to an A2 panel.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I then ahdered the washi tape panel to the large flap of the base. I cut off the overhanging part with my trimmer and adhered that to the other flap. 
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I cut the Summer blossoms sidekick frame from white cardstock and teal glitter paper. I also the Graceful Faerie from white cardstock twice, as well as 2 sets of wings and 2 partial cuts of the farie (one mirrored) from the glitter paper.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I fuzzycut the partial cuts to fit as a dress and adhered to the body of the faerie. On the back of one faerie I placed a thin silver thread. I would have used clear, but I didn't have any. I then glued the wings together so I had 2 double sided wings. Since the wings were now going to add quite a bit of bulk, I adhered 2 itty bitty pieces of cardstock to the back of one faerie (on top of the silver thread), and glued the 2 faeries together with the wings set in between.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

Since the space in the frame is limited I let the silver thread continue to one of the flowers in the frame. Be heavy with your adhesive. You want to make sure the thread doesn't move. Also, make sure you check that you spinner can actualy spin. I had to adjust the wings, since the wings hit the frame. I then adhered the glitter cardstock frame on top, and adhered the left side of it to the smaller flap of the base.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I didn't want to disturb the front with my sentiment, so I added it inside the card.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

All done. Before you place the card in the envelope, make sure you twist the faerie/spinner element. When your recipient opens the card, the tiny faerie will spin and spread all that sparkle.

Now it's your turn. For all the details on the challenge and how you can win a gift certificate to the Poppystamps store click HERE!  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

March Challenge Reminder: Floral Fantasy
By Nancy Penir

DSC_0087

It's a Floral Fantasy this month for the Poppystamps Challenge! Hi! Are you playing along this month with our challenge? Did someone say, 'floral?' I love a card with flowers. It just says happy. Here's my inspiration card for you.

I used a Sidekick Frame as my starting point, cutting it from a deep green shimmer card stock.

Don't know if you're aware, but MemoryBox has washi tape! and wow! Look at that Spring pattern goodness.

This spool is 4 1/2" wide, and covers the entire face of your A2 card, and then some.

Another new product in the store is watercolor paper, generously sized at 4.5 x 5.75. I was anxious to give this product a try. LOVE it! It moves the paint around with ease, and cuts perfect images.

DSC_0083

I added a floral corner from the painted pieces, staying with the colors in the washi.

I'll add a greeting when I want to use the card for an occasion. One last note, I added drops of the new glitter fairy sugar to some of the flower centers. Hope you're playing along. We love seeing you're creations. Poppystamps has so many gorgeous florals to choose from. Happy Crafting!

Easter Basket
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0043

Hi! Welcome to a post featuring a spring card full of pastel greetings!

DSC_0029

Poppystamps' Sidekick Frames are a favorite choice for quick and easy 'pow'. Wanted to get my Easter stash going, and die cut the Decorated Egg frame from white. So many ways to go from white with this die. One is to use enclosed stencil to color the eggs. Another is to simply cut colored eggs from the Folk Decorated Eggs die set. I started with the new 6 x 6 double sided paper from Memory Box. Once cut, it left me with the opposites of each color. I glued down both so it would be ready for another card.

DSC_0034_wm

The colored eggs, the basket of goodies... and a glitter easter greeting... and done!

DSC_0044

A closeup of the basket. Don't you just love the emboss the die cutting reveals? The charm of each detailed egg, basket, and even the grosgrain bow are defined.

Hope you're inspired to use the lovely Sidekick frames with the new dies in the store now. And hope the season is bringing sunshine your way! 

Happy Crafting!
