Stained Glass Butterflies
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends. Candice here on the blog with a colorful and creative card share. Today's card features the new Stained Glass Butterfly collage die from the latest Poppystamps release.


I created the card by first die cutting the butteflies from a slimline piece of black cardstock. The die cuts one cluster of butterflies. So once I die cut the first cluster from the top of the card front, I die cut the butterflies again at the bottom of the card front panel. 


Next, I took the same size slimline panel in white cardstock and blended some distress inks onto the panel in rainbow order. I did not bother to blend the colors completely for a smooth look.


Then I adhered the black die cut panel of butterflied onto the rainbow blended cardstock with liquid glue. The rainbow butterflies immediately come to life once the black cardstock is adhered. 


Next I foiled the sentiment Thinking of you with some silver foil paper and my Go Press and Foil machine. The sentiment comes from the new You Are Amazing Poe Script Grettings Foil and Cut die set. I also die cut a few butterflies from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set from Gold Mirror cardstock and adhered the butterflies to the card with some liquid adhesive. The sentiment was popped up on 3M foam tape.  

Lastly,  I used my white craft paint  and a pain brust to add splatters to the card panel for added interest. I think today's card came out absolutely stunning. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time happy crafting!

Floral Cake Card
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends, Candice here on the blog sharing a few new products from the latest release at Poppystamps. The new Floral Cake Pop-Up Easel set makes an adorable 2 tiered cake embellisehd with an array of flowers. This die set is perfect for making the one of a kind Cake shaped card that is perfect for celebrating weddings or any special occasion with a cake. 


To create this card I used the two cake dies and several of the flowers from the new Floral Cake Pop-Up Easel set. I used this image on an A2 size card instead of making in into an easel card. I love that the Pop-Up easel dies can be used in more ways than originally intended. 


For the sentiment on th card I am using the new Say It Big stamp and coordinating die set. Where I stamp the Thinking of You sentiment in versamark ing and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then die cut the sentiment with the coordinating dies that come in the stamp set. 


This card was very easy to put together. I die cut the flower and leaf images a few times in white, grey, green and gold carstock. Then assembeld each flower with two images stacked on top of each other with some liquid glue. I added clear gems to the centers of the flowers for a bit more embellishment. Then popped up a few of the flowers and the base of the cake with foam tape for added dimension. 


I think this card is absolutely stunning. I will certainly make a few more to have on hand to add to my wedding card stash. This die set can also be used to make traditional birthday cake, which I will be trying out as well. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting!

In My Thoughts
by Sue McRae


Hello everyone! Sue here with another heart card that can be used for a thinking of you card or switch out the sentiment to send some love for Valentine’s Day.


I started by laying alcohol inks and blending solution on yupo paper. I created a rainbowish mix of colours using an air blower to move the ink around. After the panel was dry I placed the Leaf Flourish Heart Die in different spots around the piece to see where I liked the colours the best and die cut it from that section.


To add a little sparkle and depth to the card design I die cut another Leaf Flourish Heart from gold glitter cardstock and adhered it to the back of the alcohol ink heart.


To add more texture and depth to the card I embossed a white panel with the Geometric Crystals 3D Embossing Folder and attached the heart to it. I added this piece to my card base.


The sentiment was heat embossed in white on black cardstock and I added a few Clear Fairy Drops to finish off the card.


This is an easy and quick card design that really stands out from the alcohol ink technique. I hope you give it a try! Have a wonderful week!

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
