Today, I'm sharing how I made my sample from yesterday's hop. I featured a mash up of products from the whole Birch Press Designs family, including the new Poppystamps Ornament Background die. To start, I embossed a panel of white cardstock with the new Ringadings 3D Embossing Folder from Memory Box. I matted it with a piece of red cardstock.

Next, I die cut white cardstock with the Ornament Background die twice for added dimension. I adhered the background die cuts together with spray adhesive. I also die cut pieces of an alcohol ink panel that I had in my stash from just the ornament portion of the die. I did not have a large alcohol ink panel, so cutting it into pieces to fit what I wanted to die cut helped save paper. To create the alcohol ink panel, I just blended a variety of green alcohol inks together with a lot of isopropyl alcohol and ink splatters for texture. I inlayed the ornaments in place with liquid glue. To finish the ornaments, I shaded the tops with copic markers - C1, C3, and C5.

Lastly, I embellished the card with holiday foliage, berries and a sentiment. I die cut several leaves from various green cardstock with the Memory Box Pine Needle Trio die and the Poppystamps Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel. I die cut the berries from an alcohol ink panel that I created with red and pink inks. The sentiment is one I use frequently. It is the Joy Honey Script die from Birch Press. I die cut it from two layers of white cardstock and once from red foil from the Polished Foil Paper pad. I attached the completed card front to a side-folding, A2 card base.

Winter Greetings
by Tiffany Pryce

Hey everyone! I'm back on the blog sharing how I made this fun, sparkly winter card using products from the newest Poppystamps release. Have you checked it out yet? There are so many gorgeous dies and stamps for all your winter/holiday cardmaking needs! 

Do you ever wake up and just feel like you need glitter to brighten your day? When I was looking through my Memory Box paper pads, I was drawn to the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad. It reminded me of an icy storm and I love non-traditional colors, so I thought it would make a perfect wintery background. To start, I trimmed 4 different colors of glitter paper into 1/4 inch strips. I adhered the strips onto an A2 piece of paper with tape runner. Stripes always make for a clean and simple background. You could change up the colors or even use scraps of pattern paper to switch up the look.

After creating my background, I worked on die cutting the Diamond Snowflake Oval Frame. I die cut the frame twice from white cardstock and stacked them together for dimension. With a fine frame like this, I like to use spray adhesive because it is easier than adding drops of liquid glue everywhere. To the centers of the snowflakes, I added Fairy Sugar Glitter Glue in Dewdrop to tie in more sparkle.

To create the oval for my sentiment, I used the new Basic Ovals die set. I chose an oval that was smaller than the opening because I wanted the stripes to peek through. Using the same size oval die, I also die cut fun foam to add behind for dimension. I stamped a sentiment from the Wintertime Sentiments stamp set in gray ink and adhered the oval to the center of the frame.

To embellish the card, I wanted a few snowflakes. Because I did not have any stand alone Poppystamps snowflake dies, I improvised. I die cut the Snowflake Corner Frame die from white cardstock and carefully trimmed out three snowflakes. I added a little light blue dye ink on the edges to help the snowflakes stand out. Finally, I added more Dewdrop glitter glue to the snowflake centers.

Hugs

Happy Thursday! Tiffany here with some more Poppystamps inspiration. I decided to play along with the challenge this month and use Washi tape. I don't feature Washi tape that often, but I should! It is an easy way to add a fun element to any papercraft. For this card, I kept it simple and used the Washi tape as a background to my die cuts.

To start, I added the Cornelia Aqua Wide Washi tape to a panel of heavyweight, white cardstock. It is much easier to roll out the Washi tape if you cut a scrap piece of cardstock and attach it at the end of the tape. I think it gives you something to hold on to as you roll out the tape smoothly on a piece of cardstock. After I adhered the Washi, I die cut the panel with the Stitched Rectangle Layers die. I die cut a few more layers with scrap cardstock for dimension behind this panel.

Next, I die cut the Village Rose and Background die several times from light and dark purple cardstock from the Twilight Purple paper pack. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue and adhered it to the Washi tape panel randomly. I trimmed off any excess flowers.

Next, I die cut the sentiment. Using the Big Hugs Sugar Script die, I die cut the shadow layer from vellum and the top layer three times from white cardstock. Finally, I added clear Fairy Drops around the panel to fill in the gaps and add a little shine. I really like this sweet and simple card to send a little love to a friend. Hope you will join us for the Washi challenge this month!

Hey crafty friends! Tiffany here with some more fun, fall inspiration for you. I made this simple, colorful card using only a few Poppystamps products. I started my card by stamping and gold heat embossing the main image from Diamond Sentiments stamp set on watercolor paper. I watercolored the image with some watercolor brush markers in my stash in an array of autumnal colors.

20210915_155745

While my watercolored image was drying, I worked on the die cuts. I wanted to make the leaves and foliage look more lush, so I decided to use the Leafy Garden Border die. I ink blended several panels of cardstock with a variety of distress oxide inks and die cut the panels multiple times with the border die. I added splatters of leftover watercolor on the leaves for some subtle detail. Once dry, I trimmed each die cut in half and arranged it behind the focal image. After I arranged the leaves, I used Press'n Seal to pick everything up, add glue and adhered it to a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack.

Inside the diamond, I stamped one of the sentiments in the Diamond Sentiment stamp set in Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink. To bring in some more gold, I gold heat embossed the edges of a piece of white cardstock. I simply pressed my sticky embossing ink directly to the paper and ran it along the four sides. It was not perfect and that was ok because I wanted a distressed look to match the card. I adhered everything to an A2-sized card base, added a few fairy jewels, and that's it! Hope you enjoyed the card and found some inspiration!

One of a Kind
by Tiffany Pryce

Hi Poppy friends! I recently took a crafting class on cardstock (from Online Card Classes)  and thought I'd share what I learned with all of you. This card is a little different from what I usually make because I normally die cut or stamp and color an image, but this focuses on the sentiment and background technique. What a fun and simple way to stretch your supplies and creativity! You could do this technique with different colors and create a great masculine card - the possibilities are only limited to your imagination.

To start,  I choose 3 colors of cardstock- blue, green and glitter. I cut each piece of cardstock into half inch strips using my paper trimmer. I then glued these strips to a piece of copy paper using my tape runner. I trimmed any excess hanging over the edges.

Next, with the stripes laying horizontally, I cut my striped panel into half inch strips. This will leave you with strips made of tiny squares of each color of your cardstock.

Next, I glued the strips together being mindful to offset colors to get that checkered pattern. In hindsight, I should have flipped every other strip around so to avoid the solid blue stripes in the final card background. But I'm still happy with the result. I trimmed the checkered panel down to about 3.5 x 4.5. I matted it with some cream cardstock.

To create the custom sentiment, I die cut the letters from the Marzipan Alphabet die set. I die cut each letter 3 times for dimension. Next, I stamped and clear heat embossed the sub sentiment from the Whittle Everyday stamp set. I created my own banners by cutting small notches at the end of each sentiment strip. I adhered both the letters and the sentiment strip with foam tape. In a clean and simple design like this, I think the added dimension adds some polish to the finished card. I wish I could capture that pretty glittery cardstock here, but trust me, the sparkle is gorgeous!

Hope you liked the card and enjoyed the step-by-step walkthrough. If you use this technique with your Poppystamps projects, please don't forget to tag us on social media so we can see. Until next time, happy crafting!

Sending Fall Hugs
by Tiffany Pryce

20210816_235923

Hey Poppy friends! Anyone else in the mood for fall? I know, I know, we shouldn't rush the seasons, but I love fall. It is my favorite for so many reasons - cool weather, cozy sweaters, pumpkin everything, apple season, Halloween, my birthday, Thanksgiving, and so much more. Here's a card I made inspired by the beauty of changing leaves.

To start, I ink blended two panels with a variety of autumn inspired dye inks from Catherine Pooler. I blended one of the two panels a little lighter than the other. Since the inks are water reactive, I splattered both panels with water for a little texture. One panel was used as the background, and the other was used for my leaf silhouettes and die cuts.

I tried a new (to me) technique with my Poppystamps products where made a stencil with one of the Whittle dies. I covered a piece of scrap paper with masking tape and die cut the Whittle Oak Leaf multiple times to create a pseudo stencil. With the DIY stencil, I blended the same ink colors randomly on half of one ink blended panel, and then trimmed the panel in half. From the trimmed half of the panel, I die cut several leaves as normal. I added additional ink on the die cuts to deepen the colors.

To further differentiate the background, I dry embossed the Lattice Plate die for texture. And I popped up the leaves with foam tape for dimension. For a little sparkle, I added Fairy Jewels in coordinating colors.

For the final touch, I heat embossed a sentiment from Whittle Everyday in white embossing powder. I ink blended the sentiment strip with the same yellow and orange inks that I used in the background.

Hope you enjoyed this fall inspired card and I hope you try something new in your next make. See you next time!
