Poppystamps Sponsoring Time Out Challenges
By Jeanne Jachna

Believe-Five

I know you love to make, but do you like to play card challenges on line?  I do!  Especially when I'm not feeling so crafty.  They're a great place for inspiration.  I like to see what other folks who like to craft are making, what's trendy, and get ideas for new techniques to try.
Time Out Challenge 135.1png
Poppystamps is sponsoring the latest Time Out Challenges Blog that begins today.  That means if you make something and link it up you'll be entered to win a $20 gift certificate to the store.    The inspiration this time is  a quote that got me thinking about looking up at the stars and making a wish. 
Believe-One
Here's what I made! 
Believe-Two
I started with a Distress Ink background of Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, and Blueprint Sketch.   I applied the inks with a make up brush.  I bought a set by Yoseng on Amazon and I wouldn't trade them for any other brush I've ever tried.  They make soft inky backgrounds FAST!  I splattered the panel with water, and then some watered down Salty Ocean ink. 
Believe-Three
Next I cut the panel with the All Star Collage and layered it over a second panel that I inked with Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers.  I cut the All Star Collage a second time with a piece of gold scrap paper and used the stars as embellishments for a bit of bling. 
Believe-Four
I double cut the Believe Fresh Script word die from white and gold card stock and then adhered them together offset so the gold glitter paper peeks out from the white cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Donut What I'd Do clear stamp set.  I put some tape over the "forget" on the sentiment before I inked it.  Next I removed the tape and stamped the sentiment so only the words I wanted "you are awesome" got inked.
Believe
 Now it's your turn!  I hope you find some time to play along!   You can find the Time Out Challenges Blog here.   For a second chance to win link up your project on the Poppystamps challenge too.  Our theme this month is Wishi Washi!  We're looking for (make a wish) Birthday cards, and / or cards that include some washi tape.

Starry Night with Poppystamps
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5936-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today! We have got SO MUCH going on at Poppystamps this month, you won't want to miss a thing! But first, are you playing along with our January challenge, Starry Night? All you have to do is create a card or project using at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, and link it up over on our challenge blog! You might be selected as this month's winner!

Take a look at how I was inspired by a Starry Night!

IMG_5932-wm

I created a cozy home, right after Christmas, nestled in the snowy north woods! I even created a background using a brand new technique (at least for me)!

IMG_5909-wm

I have been creating cards using alcohol inks for a while, which is so much fun, and would work nicely with this Starry Night card too. The background panel on the left was created with alcohol inks dripped and then blended on YUPO paper. The panel on the right was created with copic markers! Just select your favorite shades and scribble them across the YUPO, then blend with a little alcohol blending solution and a sponge in a swirly motion. I used the darker blue panel as the night sky for my Starry Night card.

IMG_5934-wm

We'd love to see what you'll create, and how you will be inspired by a Starry Night!

Thanks so much for dropping by today, and be sure to come back again tomorrow!

Night Sky
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_1079

Hello and Happy New Year to all of you! I made this card with a few dies from Poppystamps . I used Winter Cabin ,Whittle Trees and Pointed Circle Frames.

IMG_8795 2

I love watercoloring with Peerless  Watercolor sheets from Birch Press Design. The color is so vibrant and can easily be toned down with water .

IMG_8797 3

This is how my night sky started out. I dried it with my heat gun then added more watercolor until I was happy with the results.

IMG_8799 2

I loaded my brush with white shimmer paint then made splatters by rubbing my fingernail over the tip of the brush.

Fullsizeoutput_1074

This card could be for anyone but I also think its a great masculine card!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and many blessings to you and your families in 2019!

Northern Holiday
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5861-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could drop by for a visit! Snowy December is certainly here, so today I am sharing a snowy winter scene! Take a look at this Northern Holiday!

IMG_5859-wm

I started by creating a background of blended distress oxide inks spritzed with water for a soft, fuzzy look. I have fallen in love with our collection of whittle animals, so I used this adorable Whittle Fox against the soft white of thicker watercolor paper. I think he really stands out. Add a few stars from the All Star Collage and you have a sweet winter scene.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Star of Wonder
by Donna Peachey

Snapseed-2

Star of wonder, Star of night

Star with royal beauty bright...

IMG_4315-2

With Christmas fast approaching, I thought it might be nice to take a little break from card making.

And I don't know about you, but sometimes I take a look at a die and my mind starts to wonder 'what if'.

So today's post shows just what happened when I first saw the Deco Tree Frame craft die set...

IMG_4318-2

I took one look at that tree...   and wondered if I could make it into a hanging star.

IMG_4316-2

Want to see how this was made?

Snapseed

You will need 20 of the inner parts of the trees and 10 0f the outer parts.

This photo shows that I've already glued them back to back - which you'll need to do before anything else! 

You'll also need 2 of the Folk Star - cut from corrugated card as shown.

Snapseed 2

Start with the Folk Star.  You'll need one, good side face down.

Cut a circle that sits just inside the inner corners of the Star and glue it into place, then add the outer sections of the Tree as shown.

Don't use your red liner tape for this as you may want a bit of 'wiggle room'!

Snapseed 3

Once happy, add some glue to the centre and leave those outer sections to dry.

Then add those inner sections of the Tree.

And then add those outer sections again so that they marry up with the first lot.

Snapseed 4

Once everything is completely dry, add just a touch of glue to the very ends of those outer Trees and pinch them together until set.

This adds a little more strength to the design.  It is going to be hanging, after all!

Then add the other Folk Star, good side face out this time.

To decorate, I've pierced a hole through the centre just big enough to add two bells on a string. I've then tied a knot and cut off most, but not all of the excess twine.

The finishing touch?

Texture Paste.

Add as much or as little as you like!

 

Here's one final photo...

by Robin Tharaldson

PS April 30 CU2 With

I have a simple patriotic card to share with you today. I used scraps of cardstock to create my star strip, along with the Big and Little Star Border Layer dies from Poppystamps Spring Release!

  PS April 30 CU2 With

My sentiment was made using Stitched Main Street Tags and Sending Love Stamp set.

Wintertime Fairies Slider Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0084

Hi there! Nancy here, and I have an interactive card to show you today. It's Slider Week at Poppy, and Memory Box has released a new die set to help you create a slider.

DSC_0003

The set offers 4 sizes and shapes, and is used with your stamps. Let me show you.

If you've never done a slider card, You Tube has several videos and how-to's. My slider is made with 2 pieces of foam fit together within the cutout, and attached to my fairy. A pulltab with ribbon slides the image through the slide.

DSC_0008

The stamp set I used is from the darling new Wintertime Fairies, (coming soon!) and has a coordinating set of matching dies.

DSC_0074

The sweet holiday fairies set has 3 fairies in different poses. I stamped, cut and colored my fairies and images first, 

and created my background card base from Distress Oxide Inks. On the bottom of the card I created a stencil by tearing a piece of paper in the shape of a hill before spritzing it with white spray. 

DSC_0087

The scene has the flying fairy starting at one end of the card, and flying to the other end, lighting the Christmas lights banner.

DSC_0086

I hope you enjoyed my slider post today. Remember to check back to see how each designer  used this useful and fun die set!

And don't forget to leave a comment to win a stamp set of your choice. Good luck!
