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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Gel Press Christmas cards
by Marybeth Lopez

Hi there! Yes , the cards are made with Poppystamps stencils but in a new way.  I had a few minutes to check out Jennifer McGuire  blog  and saw a new technique using a gel pad . I was able to get one quick from Amazon. So I gave it a try with stencils. 

14B5A084-3689-4ABC-B848-E024812118F8_1_201_a

I placed  the gel pad on my MISTI then inked up the gel pad just using the ink pad, then place the stencil on top. I then cut a panel and placed that on top to the stencil, and pressed over the back of the panel.  The stencil below is from Poppystamps  called Bright Blossom ( looks a bit like a poinsettia to me)

When I took the stencil off this is what I got( above)  It was kinda fun and a new way to use stencils for me.

The stencil above is is called : Leafy  Rows , I did this one the same way.

I was pleased with the way they both turned out and simple and easy to mail , especially this time of year.

I added glitter to both cards for a bit of shimmer , I always love shimmer or glitter for Christmas ( or any card :)

Take care and God bless.

Christmas Card & Envelope
by Nancy Penir

December 2020, and Christmas is around the corner. Are your cards in the mail? I have a simple card and matching envelope for you today, in case you are short a few. Our sister company, Memory Box has some gorgeous Christmas paper pads that pack a wow. 

DSC_0045 2_wm

My card features the new Simple Lantern Oval die set. The holiday plaid paper pack is a double sided print with gold on one side. Just gorgeous! I used my gold mirror paper to cut the oval lantern, and backed it with white. Then sponge inked where the lantern would shine. The Holiday Mistletoe was also cut from white cardstock and copic colored. Added a bit of glitz to it with some chunky glitter. And I also want to show you it's envelope and an easy way to use Poppy's stencils to decorate them.

I love personalizing my envelopes, and it's really easy to do with a stencil. You'll notice I angled the stencil to allow room for addressing. First applied red, a bit darker in the center, fanning outward to the petals.

Next the green, where I wanted the leaves.

I'll write on top of part of the image, as I kept it light along the edge of the design.

There are lots of great stencils in the store, and here's hoping you already have a few in your stash!

Have a wonderful crafty weekend.

Challenge Reminder: Colors Of Autumn
by Nadine Carlier

Hello Autumn Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a reminder to enter the PSC#74 Colors Of Autumn!  The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is crafty using colors of Autumn... reds, yellows, oranges, and everything in between.  Not feeling like a color challenge?  That's ok.. how about some fall foliage, pumpkins, apples, gourds, and cornstalks?  Maybe some whittle fall critters?  Gobble gobble!!!  Just like the bounty of the harvest, there are lots of possibilities! Link up your projects... cards, tags, home decor, and more!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!

To help give you some inspiration, I created my card using the Maple Leaf Side Strips and Stencil. I die cut it out of white cardstock and then used the stencil to color in the leaves using some fall ink colors and a blending brush. Then adhered the white panel to the front of an off white card base.

For the sentiment, I used the Luscious Script Hello and cut it out using some orange foiled paper.

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

IMG_20200819_205112

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.
IMG_20200819_205112

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.
IMG_20200819_205112

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!
