Bright Blossoms

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 5.27

Hey there crafty friends, its Candice here, sharing with you another card design. 

Today's card is a one layer card featuring the Poppystamps Bright Blossoms Stencil. The large bloom from the Bright Blossoms stencil is a great focal image for an A2 size card.

To get started, I created a mask of the Image. To do this, you will need to trace the flower and leaf images in pencil onto a sheet of white card stock. Next, fussy cut the traced image with your scissors to create individual mask pieces of the design.

Now adhere the stencil to a clean 6x6 inch piece of white card stock using purple tape. Place each of your leaf masks back into the stencil with some repositionable tape.  With Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick, ink blend these colors on to the blooms of the stencil. The leaf masks you placed down earlier will prevent the pink ink from transferring to the leaf images on the design.

After coloring the blooms, remove the leaf masks from the stencil. Next place down your bloom masks on top of your coloring, then adhere the stencil back over your image with purple tape. With your Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide inks, ink blend these two colors onto each of the leave images of the stencil design. Apply the Peeled Paint ink first, then apply Crushed Olive ink on just the tips of the image to create depth and dimension.  After blending, remove the masks and stencil. The results are stunning.

Now with your Memory Box Texture Dot Grid stencil, or any tiny polk a dot stencil from your stash, adhere the stencil over your colored blooms and leaves using purple tape. With a light grey ink, I am using Stampin' Up Smokey Slate, ink blend the grey ink onto the open white spaces of your image to create the dotted background.

Next remove the stencil from the image and die cut the panel with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die.  You will be left with 2 separate pieces. A frame and the center focal image. Now die cut the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame again from a plain piece of 4.25 x 5.5. inch white card stock. Adhere the plain white frame to a turquoise A2 size card base.

Then add the center portion of the stenciled bloom image to the card based within the white border frame. With a 1.25 inch strip of vellum card stock, stamp with the sentiment "Sending heartfelt sympathy" in Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

Lastly adhere your vellum sentiment strip to the color stenciled card front with some adhesive tape runner. Embellish the card with a few pink enamel dots and your card is finished. I hope you've enjoyed today's card tutorial and found some great inspiration. 

Thank you for joining me today. Until next time, happy crafting!

Hi Poppy fans! For todays card I took inspiration in the current situation in Australia. It is absolutely heartbreaking and my heart goes out to everyone affected.

First I ink blended a panel to symbolize the blazing fire and set this aside to dry.

I then ink blended another panel to symbolize the burnt trees. After this panel dried I cut it with the Tall skyline Tree frame.

I cut out the Peek a boo koala and colored it. Then I cut off the frame.

I white heat embossed a sentiment on the cut frame and adhered it to the base panel. I adhered the koala as well. From a piece of white cardstock I cut the Samba heart border and measured where I wanted to score it. I then adhered the left side of the panel to the back of the base.

After adhering the half front, heart cut panel I used my stamping tool to measure where I wanted the sentiments. I didn't want them showing through the cut out hearts.

I added a couple of dots of black Nuvo drops as eyes and nose for the koala.

On the "inside" I adhered a couple of the cut out hearts from the border. Let's all pray for the survival of the unique and endemic animals of Australia.

Sympathy Card

Hello! Marybeth here today with a feminine sympathy card, using :Poppystamps clear stamps and dies. 

I tried not to make it too busy  but wanted to add more than just the background  . 

IMG_1184

I stamped the background with: Flower Garden and used : Tim Holtz distressed oxide inks. First I stamped lightly with the ink pad then blended the inks so it would not have any harsh lines.

I kept doing it till I was happy with the results. I am using the MISTI Stamping tool.

The sentiment comes with the background  stamp set: Flower Garden, all linked below.

I die cute the Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame a few times so I would have a few flowers to put around the :Whittle Hearts.

I randomly cut them apart then sanded with a sanding block to smooth the edges, then tucked them around the heart.
