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. 


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. 


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. 


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. 


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


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


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. 


The dark lining adds drama to shadow my leaves.

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


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

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.


Just a very light application for a little wow.

Oh the wonders of  washi... so many ways to use it. I added the wide rose washi from Memory Box to a piece of white cardstock before cutting it with my die. I also fussy cut one of the rose bouquets and added it to the top corner.

Gilded Plate Thank You
by Jeanne Jachna


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!  


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.

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 .


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. 


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!

Welcome September!
by Nancy Penir


A very grateful welcome to the month of September! And to all of you Poppy Peeps! Nancy here, and I have a very fall-ish card to start off the season of falling leaves, cooler weather, and our children returning to school! (Yay!)


So Very Thankful began it's life with Poppystamps' Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame, one of my all time favs!


Yep! You're seeing right, I started with white cardstock. Also die cut my image from colored foam.


The sidekick frame comes with a stencil which allows careful and selective coloring. I used my sponge daubers and oxide inks.


The foam die cut really gives the image a lift. I added Nuvo Glimmer paste over the top colored die cut. Also you can see a few shadow leaves stamped in the sentiment frame. 


Poppystamps has so many wonderful autumn dies and stamps in the shop. Hope you check out this sidekick frame and several others! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for Being There
by Nancy Penir


Hi there! How are you all? Kids back in school? A bit more free time to create? Let's look at one of the new Deco dies in the shop now. Art Deco has endless design possibilities! I used the Arched Deco Plate for a  card for a dear friend.


I began by die cutting the plate, not twice but 3 times in purple, gold and aqua foil. I would suggest using your shim for a clean cut.


There are many ways to attach layers. My favorite is glue in a tiny pointed tipped bottle. You can use spray adhesive, or run the pieces through a Xyron machine. Because the cardstock and foiled stock is heavier, it keeps its shape while gluing. The glue dries quickly so you have to move along quickly, but you don't need to glue each and every piece. 


After embossing the sentiment, I popped up the framed piece  with foam. 


What do you do with intricate framed pieces? I love backing them with contrast color for an extra pop! Hopefully you'll give this a try, if you haven't done so already. 

Have a great and crafty week!
