Housewarming Congrats!

Happy Wednesday, friends! Tiffany here with some inspiration for this month's Poppystamps challenge. This month is all about rainbows - my favorite!! We want you to add ALL the colors or maybe even an actual rainbow to your project.  Your project can be for any occasion, just be sure to include at least one Poppystamps (stamp or die) on your project! We can't wait to see what you make. My dear friend recently purchased her first home so I wanted to make a card congratulating her! Since this month's theme is rainbows, why not a rainbow neighborhood? 

This CAS card was easy to make - die cutting took the longest. To start, I made a mini slimline card panel from white cardstock. I trimmed the panel to 6.25 x 3.25 inches. I splattered the panel with black spray ink for additional interest.

Next, I die cut the house from the Layered Global house die set multiple times from a rainbow of cardstock. This house die was meant to be used in the snowglobe die set for winter/holidays, but the house is perfect for year round. Take a look at your seasonal products to see how you may use them all year. It is a good way to get more from your stash. Each house used two colors of cardstock - darker for the top layer and a lighter shade from the backing. I used coordinating colors of copic markers to darken the roof and doors.

I adhered the houses with foam tape for dimension. I used my t-ruler to ensure they were aligned straight, but this design could look great with random/scattered placement as well. For a little sparkle, I added glitter brush marker on the doors.

For the sentiment, I hot foiled the Modest Greetings 1 on black cardstock with silver glimmer foil. I die cut the sentiment with the coordinating strip die. I added silver twine behind the sentiment strip and adhered to the card front with foam tape. For dark paper, I recommend using black foam tape. Or you can color the edges of white foam tape with a black marker. Before adhering the card front to my card base, I trimmed it a little bit and matted it with a piece of black cardstock.

Grungy Hello
by Tiffany Pryce

20220625_192432

Welcome back to the blog, friends! Tiffany here to share a card I created using a gel print background and an embossing folder. I rarely pull out my gel plate so I wanted to try something a little different. It was so much fun making different backgrounds with inks, sprays, and paints. Having a background stash makes for easy cardmaking when you need to create quickly.

20220625_192445

To start, I added two colors of blue paint on my gel plate. I spread out each color with a brayer and cleaned the brayer on scratch paper between colors. The colors I used were a brighter aqua blue and a more stormy blue color. After spreading the paint with my brayer, I pulled a print with 80 lb white cardstock. I added about 2 or 3 layers of paint on the same background panel until I was happy with the result. After the paint was dry, I splattered aqua and silver acrylic gloss spray for additional texture and shine. I love the abstract grungy look of the paint and splatter.

20220625_192502

I could have left the panel as is, but decided to add even more texture. I lightly sprayed both sides of my gel print with clean water, and then ran it through my die cutting machine in the Geometric Crystals 3D Embossing Folder. To bring out the square pattern more, I lightly ran white pigment ink over the panel so it just highlighted the raised portions. To help even out the background, I added a few layers of scrap cardstock. I sprayed a panel with the same silver, metallic spray and used it to matte my card front.

20220625_192455

For the sentiment, I die cut the Freestyle Hello craft die several times from white cardstock and adhered the layers together. For the shadow layer, I die cut it from a piece of acetate for something a little different. I did not want to cover the background. On the top layer of the sentiment, I added more silver, metallic spray with my finger to match the grungy feel of the card.

Hope you liked this mixed media card and are inspired to try something similar. I think this would be a great masculine or unisex design. Have a great Sunday!

Kindness is Golden
by Tiffany Pryce

20220616_230129

Hey friends! Tiffany here, and today I'm sharing another clean and simple card featuring a products from the newest release. 

How often do you use your ink sprays? If you follow me on IG, you know that I love mixing clean and simple with mixed media. Sounds contradictory, but the description works for me :) One medium that makes a quick yet interesting background is ink sprays. There are so many kinds and can be used with varying techniques. On this card, I used a metallic ink spray in the most basic way to add a lot of glitz and interest to an otherwise very simple card.

20220616_230122

From a piece of red cardstock from the Berry Red, die cut the Stained Glass Butterfly collage die. Keep the tiny butterflies that get die cut to use as embellishments on the finished card front. After die cutting, spray the panel generously with the metallic gold ink spray. I pressed the spray fully to get a fine mist and pressed the spray halfway to get larger droplets for varied texture. 

20220616_230110

After the panel was dry, I backed it with foam tape and popped it up on a panel of orange cardstock from the Sunny Orange paper pack. I like the added dimension with the foam tape and the analogous color scheme. I adhered the card front to an A2 card base.

20220616_230114

Next, I worked on my sentiment. I used the Modest Greetings 2 Hot Foil Plate to foil my sentiment in matte gold glimmer foil. It's nice that this set has a coordinating sentiment strip die included! I added some gold twine behind the sentiment to tie the card together.

20220616_230125

I encourage you to pull out one supply, like an ink spray or anything else in your stash, that you rarely use. Try it out on a card! No need to overcomplicate it, just use the medium in its most basic way and see what you come up with. These baby steps will help move you outside of your comfort zone and experiment. Have a great crafty weekend and thanks for reading!

Perfect Posies Congratulations
by Tiffany Pryce

20220513_182930

Wedding season is upon us so I wanted to make a card for my stash. I have a couple weddings coming up so I know this will come in handy! I am really into clean and simple cards these days, and I love how this one turned out. It reminded me of white lace. Let's dive into the details.

First, using the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate, I foiled the pattern with matte gold glimmer foil onto white cardstock trimmed to 5.25 x 4 inches. If you've never foiled a regular, cutting die, it is so easy! Just foil as you normally would. The resulting foil is not as prominent, especially not with this plate as only the raised areas that would have pierced the paper were foiled. It is a little hard to tell in the photos since the effect is subtle, but in real life it adds a really pretty detail and just a hint of gold shimmer.

20220513_182856-3

Next, I die cut a large panel of white cardstock using the Perfect Posies Bouquet die. I die cut the panel three times. With spray adhesive, I glued the die cuts on top of the background. I filled the entire card front with the posies, adding small bits to fill any gaps. If I made this card again, I would add additional definition by layering the posies for more dimension.

20220513_182920-2

After finishing the background, I worked on the focal flowers and sentiment. From the Vintage Pastel paper pad, I die cut the Petite Blooms Flower Set in gold. I also cut the Petite Blooms from white cardstock and layered them together. I adhered three gold flowers and added a fairy jewel to the flower centers. Lastly, I added a sentiment from the Modest Greetings 1 foil and cut die set. I foiled the sentiment with matte gold glimmer foil.

Hot Foil Birthday
by Tiffany Pryce

20220513_163738-2

Happy Saturday, Poppy peeps! Have you shopped the new release yet? It's so cute! There are great staples for spring and summer and even a brand new line of hot foil stamps - woohoo! Today, I'm sharing a clean and colorful, birthday card using goodies from the new release.

First, I created the card base and background. I trimmed a panel of cream, woodgrain cardstock down to 5 x 3.75 inches. I backed it with several layers of scrap cardstock to add dimension and added it to an A2 card base. Next, I die cut the Perfect Posies Bouquet die twice - once from orange cardstock from the Sunny Orange paper pad and once from coral cardstock from the Berry Red paper pad. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue. To the flower centers, I added a gold jewel from the Christmas Fairy Jewels pack.

20220513_163722-2

Next, I worked on the butterfly. The Small Stained Glass Butterfly and Background die comes with two pieces - a solid butterfly background and the delicate, stained glass wings. I die cut the background from 2 layers of white and 1 layer of pink cardstock from the Berry Red paper pad. For the wings, I die cut gold cardstock from the Vintage Pastel Mirror paper pad. I adhered the wings only in the middle so I could lift the wings a bit. For the butterfly body, I die cut it from the same coral color as I did the Perfect Posies. I adhered the butterfly with liquid glue to the card front.

20220513_163724-2

Beneath the butterfly, I added a sentiment from the Modest Greetings 1 foil and cut die set. I foiled the sentiment with matte gold glimmer foil. The matte gold is one of my favorite glimmer foils. I added foam tape behind the sentiment to ensure that it was level across the panel.

Hope you liked this clean and simple birthday card! Stay tuned to the blog to see even more amazing ideas with Poppystamps products. Have a great day!
