Poinsettia Joy
by Tiffany Pryce

20211101_141924

Hey Poppy peeps! I can't believe it's November already. I am in holiday card making mode as I don't want to scramble to get them all done at the last minute. I saw the new Contempo Poinsettia and Stencil craft die from Memory Box and thought it would be fun to combine it with some Poppystamps products to make a clean and simple holiday card. 

First, I stenciled several poinsettia flowers onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. I used jewel-toned dye ink in blues and purples. After stenciling, I die cut the panel using the Scalloped Stitch Frames. I centered the largest and second to largest frames and die cut both at the same time. For a little dimension and variety, I popped up various frames with foam tape and adhered them back into place.

I used the Contempo Poinsettia die to die cut two floral outlines. The outline has to be cut from the larger die cut, but it is easy to do in two simple snips. I die cut two frames - one from silver glitter cardstock from the Majestic Hues Glitter Pad and one from white cardstock that I lightly ink blended with the same dye ink. For the center, I die cut a circle from the Stitched Circle Layers die set. The sentiment was die cut from silver glitter cardstock using the Marzipan Alphabet craft die. Finally, I added clear Fairy Crystals to the flower centers. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Welcome September!
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0020

A very grateful welcome to the month of September! And to all of you Poppy Peeps! Nancy here, and I have a very fall-ish card to start off the season of falling leaves, cooler weather, and our children returning to school! (Yay!)

So Very Thankful began it's life with Poppystamps' Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame, one of my all time favs!

DSC_0025

Yep! You're seeing right, I started with white cardstock. Also die cut my image from colored foam.

DSC_0028

The sidekick frame comes with a stencil which allows careful and selective coloring. I used my sponge daubers and oxide inks.

DSC_0024

The foam die cut really gives the image a lift. I added Nuvo Glimmer paste over the top colored die cut. Also you can see a few shadow leaves stamped in the sentiment frame.

Poppystamps has so many wonderful autumn dies and stamps in the shop. Hope you check out this sidekick frame and several others! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Birthday Fishes
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0199

Hi there! I have a fun card for you today, using some of Poppystamps' new  whittles dies. 

DSC_0189

I began with the Whittle Wave Background, cutting them in different shades of blue. I cut one extra, to glue the 4 pieces onto. It's easy to snip the edges to separate the wave sections, and they're already cut through along the wave.

DSC_0191_wm

Here's what the card looks like with the pieces put together.

DSC_0190

I assembled my die cuts on a plain white card, and liked it, but I love layers and textures, so decided to add a stenciled background, also in shades of blue. Memory Box's Fractal Diamond reminded me of rays of sunshine, so I blended my inks, lightly in the middle, heavier on the corners.

My grandson turns 10 this month, and thinks he's a fish, swimming with his brother daily! I hope he loves this card as much as I loved making it.

Something else new in the Poppystamps store are the Fairy drops. Perfect for adding air bubbles!

Have a wonderful crafty week!

Happy Birthday Masculine Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0172

Hi and welcome, Poppy friends! I have a couple of birthday cards to share today. If you find making masculine cards a challenge, you're going to love this post! I have several men in my life (one hubs and 2 sons, not to mention uncles and grand boys!)

DSC_0173_wm

On a stenciled design, ala Fractional Diamond Stencil by Open Studio (Memory Box), I began by stenciling with white paste onto teal and purple cardstock. Then had some fun spraying with colors laced with mica. It totally stands out on dark cardstock!

DSC_0166

The 2 stenciled cards, once dried, are sprayed again and again, until the desired effect is achieved. (Let the layers dry between sprays). I wiped the white with a paper towel. The diamonds retain just a bit of the stain, which I loved, and the cracks and center have the stain intact.

I wanted Poppystamps' new Birthday die to be the focal point, and so I added the oval vellum and fun foam behind and to the die  script. Here's a tip to working with intricate dies:

DSC_0169

I can't take credit for this idea, saw it on a video by a well know designer, and loved it! Fun foam is available in many colors, and you can find a stack of colors for very little money on Amazon. This particular stack I purchased has one sticky side. Now when you die cut your image, or in this case, script, leave the words in place. Glue to the front of the letters and your words will be exactly where you want them. Pretty cool, eh?

DSC_0162_wm

I really love doing cards 2 at a time, especially when the technique is such fun.

DSC_0160_wm

Just the perfect birthday greeting for special men in my life!

Hope you're inspired to give these techniques a try. Poppystamps has some wonderful new script dies in the store. And don't forget the stencils and new paper packs in the Memory Box Store! 

Have a wonderful, crafty rest of the week! Nancy Floral Signature copy

Quick & Easy Stenciled Card
by Sue McRae

20210123_102709c

Happy Monday morning! Sue here with an easy card that you can make very quickly using a stencil. I know sometimes we all need a card at the last minute and I find stencils can help create a card in a few minutes.

20210123_102730c

Today I’m using the Bright Blossoms Stencil on a square white card panel and inking it up with Distress Inks. Since the floral design is smaller in scale I used my tiniest blender brushes or you could use finger daubers to apply the inks.

20210121_133008c

I used six colours on my design but you can certainly use less which would save even more time. I only used one colour for the leaves but applied more ink in certain areas to create depth. You may be wondering why Seedless Preserves is shown in the pic above, considering my flowers are blue and yellow. I added it to the very tip of the petals to make them really dark, darker than the blue allowed. This could have also been achieved with black or a very dark brown.

20210123_102758c

With the stenciling done, I stamped part of the sentiment in black ink on the panel and die cut the Luscious Script Wishes from white and black. To keep everything simple I didn’t use any foam tape, instead keeping everything flat. I finished with a few gems for the flower centres.

20210123_102618c

That’s it! Stenciled card complete! I hope you remember to use your stencils to create a quick and easy card! Have a great crafty week!
