Distress Oxide Inks Emboss Resist
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0240

Hey there! I haven't done emboss resist in a while and thought it would be fun to create a bright background with Poppystamps Picnic Plaid.

Let's start with the finished card.

DSC_0238_wm

The Cardstock with the plaid was originally white. Take a look.

DSC_0222

To begin I inked the white cardstock with 3 shades of Distress Oxide Inks; Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, and Picked Pistachio. You don't have to do a perfect job, just make sure to ink it down well.

DSC_0228

Next the dried inked surface is stamped with Versamark. I used my misti, and gave it 2 stamps for better coverage. Then sprinkled all over with clear embossing powder, and heat set it. 

DSC_0232

Finally, a darker ink is applied, and the colors used originally show through. Isn't that neat? This is a great stamp to use, as there's plenty of solid, nearly solid and open areas to show lots of color.

DSC_0236

Speaking of great things to use, Poppy's Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame & Stencil, frames my Picnic Plaid, and gives me a chance to stencil on ink colors that blend with my background.

DSC_0246

I did 2 cards using this technique, and added the Blooming Poppy die inked the same as the frame poppies. Look closely to see the sentiment is white embossed on a vellum window. I thought it needed a bit of muting so the message would standout better. Sentiments from Picnic Plaid and Flower Garden.

I hope you give this technique a try, whether you've done it before or not, it really gives a great colorful dimension to a card.

Have a great weekend and happy crafting!

Sea of Love Challenge Reminder
by Robin Tharaldson

PS Challenge June 2019 Full WITH

Have you entered Poppystamps challenge, PSC#57 Summer Holiday, yet??? No! Well why not? It's as easy as making a project with a summer holiday theme and use one Poppystamps product!  My card features the Wavy Heart die and everytime I see this die I think of the Honeydrippers cover of the song, Sea of Love!  Reminds me of a summer holiday romance, LOL!!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU1 WITH

For my background I used Memory Box Sprinkle Dots stencil which I colored with blue ink to match my heart die cut. I cut a solid heart from scrap paper and adhered the individual pieces from the die cut onto the solid heart!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU3 WITH

Sometimes you just HAVE to make your own sentiments and this was no exception! I used the font, American Typewriter, a few of the lyrics from the song and just hit print on my computer; easy peasy! I then cut the lyrics apart and joined them together with a small brad!

PS Challenge June 2019 CU2  With

I finished my card with a simple sentiment from Poppystamps Sending Love stamp set! Here's a quick video showing how this card was made!

 


 

I hope you play along with us! The rules are simple and all the details can be found here!

Thanks for stopping by...

Sending You Love
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_10-05-2019_11-40-55

Die cutting, heat embossed stamping, graphite blocks, Brusho Colours, distress markers, distress crayons and gilding wax...  this is my idea of Mixed Media fun!

I may have taken some artistic license with my 'higgledy-piggledy' shed inspired design, though...  After all, in my garden the field mouse runs and hides any time a bird gets near.  But it's nice to think that somewhere they are coexisting peacefully.

Want to know how this was made?

Q-2

You'll need two die cuts from the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame And Stencil set.

Use Brusho Colours just for the pots on the first one.  Whilst that is drying, cut off the pots from the second and use Graphite blocks to colour.  Then seal using Varnish spray.

W-2

Using either die cut frame as a guide, stamp and heat emboss the words 'you' and 'love' as shown.

Qq-2

Then add some ink.  I've used the stencil from the Ribbon Heart Sidekick frame and a Memory Box stencil called 'Tiny Dots'.

Ww-2

Just like a real gardener, we are going to do some pruning!

I've cut and coloured these pieces from the Spring Pots Shelves die...

E-2

...  added some more colour to the card base ...

Ee

...  cut out a mouse, cut and partially coloured two birds and cut and glued together the word 'sending'...

R-2

...  before finally gluing the two frames together as shown!

Just a touch of gilding wax.

_DSC1746-2

And then we can finally pot our flowers !

 

_DSC1733-2

Add the finishing touches as shown and you'll have your own slightly ramshackled yet oh so pretty little garden scene.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Cheerful Hello Card
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier PS

Hello, Nadine here today with a cheerful hello card using the new Poppystamps Butterfly Wings Clear Stamp Set.  I love how this stamp is a background stamp, so many things can be done with background stamps. 

Hello Card by Nadine Carlier 1

I used it to create a resist for the background on my card front. The "to my favorite bestie" is one of the sentiment stamps that comes with the Butterfly Wings Stamp Set. 
The "hello" is from the Poppystamps Luscious Script Die.

Flower Garden
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_10b1

Hi there! Hope you off to a great start for April! I am using the new Flower Garden stamp set from Poppystamps . It's a full large stamp with lots of sentiments.  I stamped the background  in a soft pink .

IMG_0558

I also used the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil , also from Poppystamps ! I placed the stencil over my die cut front panel then sponged with the same color as the background flowers. I made it a bit darker by going over it a few times.

IMG_0565

IMG_0576

I cut a few greens from the Poppystamps die Spring Pots Shelves. I didn't want the card too busy ,as I already have a lot going on with the background . I just added some greens to one pot, I sniped the greens off the pots and put them all into one.

Sprinkled With Love
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_20-02-2019_09-57-13-2

If you know someone who likes the occasional sweet treat, perhaps this quick and easy make is for you!

Here's a quick 'how to' guide...

FullSizeRender

Start by creating the background using the smaller of the two dies in the Deco Victor Square set.

You'll be using the die cut as a stencil.  I've used temporary spray adhesive to hold my dies in place whilst I add the Distress Oxide ink.

As you can see, I've also added water splashes and dried them off before removing the die cuts.

FullSizeRender 2

Next, cut out the dies you will need and glue them together.

I've chosen the 'Sprinkled With Love' sentiment from the cute Donut What I'd Do set, stamped it on Heat Resistant acetate and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  

(Don't forget to use your anti static pad or it's equivalent first).

As my Heat Resistant acetate is quite flimsy I decided that a second layer from scrap packaging was needed.  Here's a photo that shows what that looks like...

_DSC9950-2

Before gluing everything into position the acetate needs to be cut to size...  which means folding and securing one end over the donuts.

Snapseed

As you can see, I've used a small staple to attach the two layers, then secured it in place with a piece of red liner tape.

I've also cut out an extra donut shape from scrap packaging, trimmed it down and attached that as shown to offset the height of the staple. 

The donut hole came in handy, too!  I added an extra layer after this photo was taken and a small piece of red liner tape right along the bottom edge of the cupcake.

_DSC9952-Edit-2

Here's the finished card again...  with the length of the acetate strip adjusted.  That small piece of red liner tape under the Whittle Cupcake stops it from escaping!

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my fun make!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Valentine Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0071

Hello, Poppy Peeps! Didn't you just love all the new Valentine Stamps and dies showcased these past two weeks? I have a Valentine card for you using some of the new release. Come along and take a look.

DSC_0068_wm

Hearts are the image of love and Valentines. And Poppy has a new die called Wavy Heart I'm lovin'!

You'll be happy to know Wavy Heart fits perfectly inside the new Pinpoint Hearts dies.

DSC_0001

Like I said, a perfect fit!

DSC_0070

I gave my background some glam with the heart stencil that comes with Sidekick frame. Not too much, just some subtle heart texture. And sponge inked the wavy heart with Oxide pinks, keeping all the die cut pieces in place.

DSC_0076

My die cut sentiment, from Doodle Happy Valentines Day is cut twice, once from silver and then backed with black. Love to back my die cut sentiments, really makes them stand out.

DSC_0007

Hope you're inspired today, and hope I got some creative juices flowing! Happy Crafting, all!
