Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you seen a jellyfish in real life? Did you get stung?
A: Me? No and No
I die cut the Whittle Jellyfish out of rainbow pastel colors and added bling to my Diamond Background by putting a Pastel Jewel in each diamond.
Hi it's Rachel back with another card using the amazing "Gracious Floral" image by Memory Box! This time I used a cooler palette of blues and greens. I love the peaceful, calming feel of these colors.
To create this card, I dry embossed the floral image on white cardstock. I die cut it out and blended ink over the stencils.
Next I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in gold.
Then I wrapped the image in 1 mm burlap string. I adhered the pieces to the card base. Finally I splattered water-downed white acrylic paint over the card.
Thank you for all you do! Please take a look at the incredible coordinating supplies for this image. Dies, stamps, 5 layering stencils and an embossing folder. Wow! Have a happy summer day. See you next month.
Hello Poppystamps Friends!

I used the Rainbow Arch die to create this bold and bright Rainbow card. I started with a light grey card background, and added the tiny ribbons of rainbow color in the usual pattern. Then I cut a handful of Whittle Clouds in shades of white, light grey, and black grey. I added the little black umbrella for the Raining Frame.
I assembled everything together to create a colorful Rainbow scene, and finished it off with a little raindrops sparkle of Fairy Jewels!
Now it's your turn to play along and join us for a wet and wild Rainbow July!
Thanks for joining us today!
I began by dry embossing the image on white cardstock. I placed the stencils on the flower and blended distress ink over the petals and leaves. There are five stencils in the package! Next I die cut the image out. I stamped a few sentiments in Versamark ink on black cardstock, heat embossed in gold, and die cut the image.
As you can see, I chose the "just because" sentiment! Then to create the background I scribbled sharpie pens in green, yellow, orange and red over a sheet of heavy vellum. I dripped rubbing alcohol on the color and blended lightly with a paintbrush. After dry, I adhered it to a white card base. I glued the flower on the background. Finally, I glued the sentiment on the flower to finish the card.
The bright, fluid background paired with the soft colors of the flower creates a stunning contrast to the rich and bold sentiment. I just love how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you get a chance to create very soon. I don't know about you, but I am so inspired by all that is warm, beautiful and lovely this summer. Take care and have a fantastic day!
It's amazing what you can do with a few die cuts and a little ink! Today's choices include the whimsical pairing of the Dandelion Stem and the Whittle Lizard.
I used a light touch to add a little green to the dandelion stems and bit of creamy brown to their centers. These die cuts were glued to the medium Scalloped Stitched Frame. The center panel was inked with a soft blue for a sky effect, then adhered to a white card base.
Foam tape was added to the frame before going on the card to give this element a little lift. This small step can add just the right amount of interest to your designs!
My die cut sentiment got the same light inking treatment. I opted for a vellum backing on it. This let it blend well with the airiness of my card design.
Check out her little toes... they match the ends of the dandelion flowers! So cute!
