Oak Leaves and a Forest Squirrel
by Kim Singdahlsen

09.6.21 PS side BL

Fall is my favorite season. I love all the brilliant colors of fall but it isn't just those traditional colors. I love how they look against the sky as it gets more wintery.  And I love how the colors look with a hint of frost in the morning.  There's such amazing contrast in the fall.  It may not be officially fall, but as soon as it is September, I feel like I can start using bright leaves and fall themes! 

I cut the Whittle Oak Leaf in a rainbow of fall colors and arranged them in a little window as a backdrop to the charming Whittle Forest Squirrel. For the contrast I was talking about, I used a bluish-gray cardstock with the Memory Box Waves 3D Embossing Folder. I think it works as well for blowing wind as it does for waves.

As with all of the whittles dies, the detail in these is amazing.  Of course, you can add ink and highlights and anything you love to do with dies...but the detail in them also allows them to stand alone.  I just cut these out. I spent a little time arranging, but it was truly a quick and simple card.

The sentiment comes from the Whittle Everyday clear stamp set.  Across the whittle stamp sets there are so many punny sentiments - many would work perfectly with the squirrel. As I was looking at my card, I felt like it was "prettier" than I would want for the punny sentiments.  The stamp sets not only have those punny sentiments, but also basic and classic sentiments, so I settled on "thinking of you".

I hope you enjoyed my Whittle Forest Squirrel happily sitting in the rainbow of leaves!  It's always fun to work with the any of the Whittles because they have such charming expressions. As they are sitting on my desk waiting to end up on a card, I smile every time I look at them!

Thinking About You Always
by Candice Crawford

Poppystamps DT 5.31.21 1

 

Happy Memorial Day! Hope you are all enjoying the holiday.  Today, I am back on the blog showcasing a bright and cheery card using the Woven Basket Pop Up Easel set that released in early spring. This basket die is perfect for Easter and any occasion.  Although this die makes a Pop Up Easel card, the basket image can be used on its own to create a great focal image for an A2 size card.

The Basket die comes with several greenery pieces that I used along with the flower dies from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set. I also used the butterfly die from this set and some of the greenery pieces to complete the full floral basket. The centers of the flowers were embellished with some white nuvo drops for added dimension.

To add a bit of interest to the card I sponged on some Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink in the background.  The sentiment comes from the Greeting Basics stamp set and I used one of the sentiment frame dries from the Christmas Quotes stamp and die set to cut of the sentiment to adhere it to the basket with foam tape.

There is  a ton of dimension on this card and I absolutelylove it.  From the layered flowers and greenery to the layered basket pieces and butterfly, this basket image jumps off the card with so much texture. I hope you've enjoyed today's cardshare and found inspiration. 

Until next time...happy crafting. Candice Floral Signature copy

August Challenge Reminder
by Sue McRae

DSCN0303c

Hi everyone, Sue here with a reminder post about Poppystamps August Challenge, Heat Wave, which can incorporate all sorts of ideas like summer, heat embossing and hot colours.

68394179_2655431668016511_1269921559120707584_n

I decided to use hot colours and heat embossing on my shaker card.

DSCN0279c

I started by stenciling the Midnight Mandala Stencil onto white card stock with Distress Oxide Inks.

DSCN0286c

I cleaned off  the stencil, taped it back in place over my design and applied glass bead glitter gel over top. Make sure to wash your stencil and tools right away before the gel hardens or else you'll need a chisel to clean everything! The gel is milky when wet and dries to a clear sparkly finish!

DSCN0322c

I die cut the largest Stitchwork Square Frame in red and added clear acetate and foam tape along the back to create my shaker box. I used a double layer of foam because the glitter gel has some height to it and I wanted to make sure there was going to be room for the sequins to shaker around.

DSCN0313c

For the shaker elements I used clear sequins and seeds beads in colours that matched the inks.

I attached this onto a white card base and white heat embossed the sentiment onto black card stock and added it to the front of my card.

Multiple flower cards
by Tina Wilstrup

Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.

IMG_20200721_221955

First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.
IMG_20200721_221955

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.
IMG_20200721_221955

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.
IMG_20200721_221955

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.

So there you have it. 5 quick cards for different occasions that are nice to have in your stash.

See you next time
