Hello there and happy July to you all . Marybeth Lopez  here with you today. I have one more Ice Cream card with you today. This time using the Poppystamps Foil and Cut Die Set called Birthday Wishes Poe Script PSF807 The cone is made with Grand Whittle Ice Cream Cone 2505.

I used Open Studio Watercolor Paper for the cones and the ice cream, I love the texture and the way it blends when using watercolor paper. I used foam tape under each layer of cones . This time I only used one layer for the cone.

I the hot foil works so well, I just love it. I love blending the colors for the ice cream too.

I used the blender brushes on my cones and did a little more shading in some areas and less on other areas as needed.

Hi there, Marybeth Lopez  here with you on this last Wednesday of July, can you believe it! Today I am using the Grand Whittle Ice Cream Cone, along with the Modest Greetings 1 Foil and Cut Die Set. I also used the Watercolor Paper for my cones.

I splattered the cones with a water brush dipped in some ink .

The cones were layered twice and ink blended with my blending brush and Distress Oxide Ink as you can see below.

I think the ink blending gives a nice cone look with simple shading. I was light handed while doing this.

I also used the Watercolor Paper from Open Studio. I used a few colors to blend some darker and some mixed. Im calling it blueberry  ice cream , works for me and looks delicious. I was in need of some  boy  birthday cards . I think this should work and I love the simple Happy Birthday under the cone. Loving the Poppystamps Foil and Cut Die Set. I made many at one time in a few different colors. So nice to have on hand when making a card.

A Triple Please by Nancy Penir

It's time for a challenge reminder, and I have a card just right for a guy.

Do you struggle with cards for guys? Here's a few hints from someone who would rather play with her flower and girly dies than

make a card for any 'him'!

First off, background paper. Have you see the great paper packs in the Memory Box store? Check out the Woodsy Plaid pack for great colors and plaids.

What guy can resist an ice cream cone, yet a triple decker! Use colors for flavors he likes, or ones that compliment your plaid paper choice. I cut my drips from the ice cream's scallop, and added Glossy Accents.

Teacher Appreciation Card
by Tiffany Pryce

20220428_184135

Hey Poppy friends! Did you know that Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday, May 2? My husband has been a math teacher at a public school for nearly a decade so I know how hard teachers work. I decided to pull out some supplies and create a very clean and simple card to say thank you to one of the hardworking educators at my husband's school. I hope this inspires you to make a few cards for the dedicated educators in your life.

To start, I die cut a panel of white cardstock using the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate die and trimmed a quarter inch from two sides. I adhered the panel to an A2 card base.

Next, using the Berry Red and Ocean Blue paper packs, I trimmed quarter inch strips with my paper trimmer. I trimmed a piece of copy paper to 4.5 x 3.25 inches and adhered the strips in alternating colors. I trimmed any excess hanging over. I backed the panel with fun foam for dimension and adhered to the card front.

Next, I worked on the sentiment. I die cut the word 'teacher' from white cardstock using the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I die cut each letter twice from cardstock and once from fun foam and adhered the layers together. Using the lines of the panel, I lined up and glued the letters across the panel with liquid glue. For a little extra detail, I added crystal glaze on each letter. I stamped the sub-sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set with prize ribbon distress oxide ink, cut it into a strip, and adhered with foam tape.

Lastly, I die cut the Whittle Pie die from white cardstock. With dye ink and copic markers, I colored the pie crust top. For the pie tin at the bottom, I die cut the piece from silver cardstock in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror pad. I adhered the crust with foam tape and then glued the completed pie above the letters.

If you make a card for an educator in your life, I'd love to see it. I think it would bring him or her so much joy. Please tag Poppystamps and me on Instagram. Happy crafting!

Sweet Thanks
by Tiffany Pryce

20210530_124405

Hi friends! Tiffany here with a sweet, thank you card featuring Whittles from the latest Poppystamps release. I played with the Whittle critters previously so I wanted to try incorporating some of the Whittle food into a card design. This one was simple and lays pretty flat, so it will be easy to mass produce and send through the mail. Win-win!

I started with my base layers. On an A2-sized card base, I trimmed and added a piece of pattern paper from the Spring Plaid paper pack. For the last base layer, I die cut a piece of white cardstock with the largest layer from the Postage Rectangle Layers. I normally add a foam sheet to one or more of my base layers for dimension, but I wanted an easy to mail card. If you are missing dimension, but still want a fairly flat card, you could double or triple up any of the base layer panels.

Next, I worked on die cutting all my card elements. Out of multiple cardstock colors, I die cut the Whittle donut, popsicle, and cupcake several times. I also die cut everything from white cardstock so I could add an extra cardstock layer to each die cut for more stability. If you ever have trouble choosing a color palette, a safe formula that I like to follow is to choose two shades of the same color, a complementary/contrasting color, and a neutral. In my card, I used two shades of purple-pink, yellow as it is opposite the color wheel from purple, and gray as my neutral. Try this simple formula in your next card to see if it works, but don't be afraid to break all the "rules" and play with colors however you see fit!

In a 3x3 grid pattern, I mixed and matched the die cuts in various color combinations. I adhered the die cuts askew so it did not have to align perfectly. I think it adds a bit more whimsy to the design. After everything was adhered, I added glitter highlights on each piece. I couldn't make a sugary, sweet card without any glitter! For extra detail, you could add glossy accents to the icing or popsicles.

Lastly, I added my sentiment strips. From the Whittle Love Sentiments set, I performed stamp surgery on two sentiments to change their orientation. Don't be afraid to carefully alter your stamps to make them work for you and your card designs. I stamped them in clear embossing ink and heat embossed in white on dark gray cardstock. I cut little notches on the ends to mimic a banner.

Hope you found some inspiration in this card and are enjoying your weekend. Take care!

Challenge Reminder: Fall Frolic
by Candice Crawford

 

Poppystamps November 2019 Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends, 

Candice here reminding you there is still time to participate in this month's blog challenge. Poppystamps blog challenges are fun and so easy to participate. When you link up a project to our challenge you are automatically entered to win a $20 gift certificate to the store.  You dont have to have a blog to link your design - you can link to Instagram, Flickr or any other on line gallery. This month's challenge link ends November 28. 

For a bit of inspiration with the challenge, I created this cute tag treat holder that can be used at your holiday place setting or gifted to your hostess at Thanksgiving. This treat holder is so easy to make and can be stuffed with candy or a homemade treat.  

November Challenge 1

To make this project, start by die cutting a tag from the largest tag from the double stitched tag frames set in some kraft cardstock. Remember to keep your tag and tag frame together as one piece. Next die cut a strip of leaves from the maple leaf side strips and stencil set from white cardstock. Separate the leaves from the strip by cutting them with your scissors. Next color the leaves with your distress oxide inks in festive berries, carved pumpkin, spiced marmalade, old olive and peeled paint to create the image of fall leaves. 

Set your tag and leaves aside, so you have space to create the treat holder. Cut a piece of coordinating kraft cardstock to 5 1/2 inches long by 2 3/4 inches wide. For the sake of my tutorial I am using white cardstock to display the instructions. 

Cutting and scoring paper 1

Next score your paper on the 5 1/2inch side at 1/4, 1, 4 1/2 and 5. Then on the 2 3/4 inch side, score the paper at 2 1/4.

 

Scoring the paper

Next with a pair scissors cut off the two end squares along the score lines. With the two remaining squares, snip only the top portion of the two remaining squares on the score line so that it can be folded inward and attached to the bottom flap. 

Cutting the ends

Next, while your paper is still flat, stamp your sentiment or greeting. I used the sentiment So very Thankful from the Autumn leaves stamp set. On the opposite side of the paper from your stamped image, fold all of your score lines to form an open box shape. Use either a strip of 1/4 inch score tape or 2 strips of 1/8 inch score tap on each of your folded flaps. Assemble the bottom portion of the box together first with the score tape.

Adding Score Tape

Now attach the open box to your tag using the score tape placed along the side flaps. Adhere your colored leaves to your box. Next fill your tag treat holder with candy, homemade baked goods, a gift card or whatever you little heart desires. The recipient will just love this adorable little holder as well as the gift. I filled my treat holder with a few Twix mini candy bars. My absolute favorite! 

November Challenge 1

I hope today's project gave you a bit a of inspiration to participate in this month's challenge. Thanks for joining me today and Happy Thanksgiving!
