Snowflake Thank You Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0071

Here we are at the end of another year, and there's plenty of need for thank you cards! I have a card for you today full of shiny snowflakes, and a frosty thank you sentiment.

Poppystamps' Wintertime Sentiments comes with a die that cuts the shape of the snowflake bouquet.

The main snowflake stamp is embossed in blue,(Wow embossing powder),  and filled in with a silver glitter pen. The sentiment is stamped separately, hand cut and popped up with foam tape.

I love the frosty look of the main image, and the way it coordinates with the die cut Snowflake Background.

Almost Happy New Year Poppy Peeps! Hope it's a blessed and healthy one for you and yours!

Challenge Reminder: Sweater Weather
by Tiffany Pryce

20211031_113820-2

Hey friends! Tiffany here with a reminder of this month's challenge - Sweater Weather. It's my favorite time of year (and my birthday is in a few days hehe) so I adore this month's challenge. "Sweater Weather" is up to your interpretation, but can mean all things fall or Thanksgiving, or autumn leaves, or warm beverages like apple cider or coffee. Just make a card celebrating the beauty of the fall season, use at least one Poppystamps product, and enter your project on the challenge post blog for a chance to win!

With a panel of white cardstock, I created a die cut window using the Basic Ovals Set dies. I layered the window on top of another panel of white cardstock that I die cut with the Leafy Vines Slim Plate die. I watercolored the vines with gold metallic watercolor. I wasn't precise with my watercoloring as I wanted a more organic look with bits of the white cardstock peeking out. I adhered the completed background to an A2 card base that I layered with a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack.

Next, I die cut the embellishment leaves. I used the Whittle Oak Leaf die and the Leaf Flourish Heart die. I ink blended a variety of distress oxide inks on the leaves in autumnal colors and arranged them on the card front. I snipped off the heart from the Leaf Flourish Heart die and cut apart the leaves to vary the look. For the sentiment, I used the Thanks Outline die. I die cut the shadow layer once from Kraft Woodgrain paper and backed it with foam tape for dimension. For the outline layer, I die cut it twice from white cardstock and once from gold foil from the Polished Foil paper pad. I adhered the layers together with liquid adhesive.

Pro tip: when using liquid glue with the Polished Foil paper, make sure to smooth the glue with your finger or a small sponge to ensure a smooth, thin layer. I've found that dots of liquid glue, no matter how small, can appear lumpy through the foil cardstock.

Hope you enjoyed this clean and simple card! I think it is perfect for a "masculine" or a gender neutral thank you card. Thanks for stopping by!

Poppystamps 9.30.21

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here back on the blog with another Copic coloring card using the Memory Box All the Happiness Stamp and die set. This large 6x9 stamp set comes with two gorgeous floral blooms that are perfect for coloring. Each stamp has a coordinating die for you to cut out the flowers. 

Today I am using the larger floral from the stamp set to make another mini slimline card. I absolutely love Black and White. These are my two my favorite colors of the rainbow. Yes I know, Black is the absence of color and white is technically not a color, but I am a sucker for black and white anything. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.3

To make this card, I began by stamping the floral image with my Gina K Almagam ink. This ink is black and bold and perfect for using with Copic Markers. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.4

I colored the red petals of the flowers with R37,R35 and R32. I always start with the darkest marker first then move to my medium shade (i.e. R35) then finally blending everything with the lightest shade (i.e. R32). The leaves are colored with G29, G28, and G07 for the darker petals and the two lighter leaves are colored with YG06 and YG00. The centers of the flowers are colored with Y15 and Y13. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.2

Coloring to me is very therapeutic. I will admit most of my cardmaking features heavily die cut cards, but at times, I do like to pull out my Copic markers to make a very colorful card. The background of the card was made with 1 inch black and white strips of cardstock that I adhered to my slim line card base with liquid adhesive. 

Poppystamps 9.30.21.5

I die cut the floral image with the coordinating die from the set and adhered it to the card with liquid adhesive. The sentiment comes from the Memory Box Joyful Moments stamp set that was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I embellished the card with my new favorite metallic pearls.

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and have found inspiration. Until next time crafty friends....Happy Crafting!

Fall Thanks
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0028

Greetings friends! Nancy here, and I have a thank you slim line card today, just perfect for the season!

DSC_0019

Blended some Distress Oxides in warm fall tones, then spritzed them with water, and white paint. My slim panel is 3 1/2 x 8 1/2.

This was the perfect width to fit the Maple Symphony die, cut twice vertically. 

DSC_0017

The dark lining adds drama to shadow my leaves.

DSC_0022 2_wm

The leaves were color reversed before gluing them down, a little off to allow the dark to show behind the leaves.

DSC_0027

I love double cutting my sentiments before adding to the card. A bit more work but worth it!

DSC_0022 2_wm

The finished card looks more dimensional, but is actually flat... very easy to mail!

I added a bit of Nuvo Glimmer Paste brushed onto each leaf.

DSC_0016

Just a very light application for a little wow.

Hope I was able to bring some fall inspiration your way today. Happy crafting!

Gilded Plate Thank You
by Jeanne Jachna

1c1

I'm loving the new cover plates you'll find in the Summer Theatre section of the Poppystamps on line store.  The deco look is elegant and artsy!  

1s

The cover panels are sized to cover an entire A2 card.  For this card I used the Gilded Plate Cover Panel.   I cut it from white card stock and layered it over a panel I inked with Distress Oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean,  Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron.  The creamy pigment inks blend beautifully and when used with cosmetic brushes look flawless.  And if you do have a few hard lines, don't worry!  A splash of water and some watered down ink cover any imperfections.

1c2
I topped the assembled panel with a the large Brilliant Ring from the three die set.  The solid die creates a focal point, breaking up the busy intricate background, for an image or simple sentiment .

1c3

To add a little more interest I inked the Thank You Poe Sentiment with Distress Oxide ink to coordinate with the inky background.    A few gold glitter enamel dots add some sparkle and shine. 

1str

I hope you'll try experimenting with different shades of distress ink to slide behind your pretty cover panels.   It just doesn't get better than this!
