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.

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!

Challenge Reminder - Holiday Joy
by Tiffany Pryce

20210729_172704

Hi friends! It's a new month so a new challenge and this month's theme is easy peasy - Anything Goes! The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up on the challenge blog post. The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media.  The choice is all yours. 

To inspire you to play along, I've created a Christmas card. Out of all the themes in the world, the holidays is one of my favorites. Who said "Christmas in July" has to end? I learned the hard way last year that it is never too early to get started on your holiday cards. So using the supplies seen below, I combined alcohol ink with some previously released products to make this festive card.

20210718_190332-2

I started with my alcohol ink panel. On a piece of yupo paper, I applied alcohol ink in a variety of blue hues mixed with silver, metallic ink. I moved the ink with blending solution, isopropyl alcohol, and the blower tool. After my panel was covered, I splattered clean isopropyl alcohol and diluted, blue alcohol ink all over the panel for a lot of texture and varying sizes of splatters. I love doing this because it brings so much interest to your inked piece. Once dry, I adhered the alcohol ink panel to an A2 card base that I layered with a piece of blue paper from the Stormy Blue paper pack.

Next, using the Stained Glass Snowflake Window die, I die cut it twice from heavyweight, white cardstock. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue. I also die cut the Snowflake die from a piece of glittery silver cardstock. To add a bit more sparkle, I inlaid several pieces from the silver die cut into the white die cut. I did not want to cover the entire design to ensure the background was still a strong focus. I added a single fairy jewel in the middle of the snowflake.

20210729_172719

For the sentiment, I use the Joy Honey Script die from Birch Press Designs. I die cut it three times - from vellum, the same glittery silver cardstock as the snowflake, and dark blue cardstock. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue, offsetting each layer a little. And that's it! A simple, but pretty Christmas card. Hope this gave you some inspiration to get going on your holiday cards. Happy crafting!

Art Deco Happy Birthday
by Tiffany Pryce

20210715_135459

Hello friends! Tiffany here with more Art Deco inspiration from the Summer Theater release. When I was thinking about this card, the Wizard of Oz kept coming to mind. The glitz, green, and opulence of the Emerald City was my inspiration, along with the sample from the Poppystamps website.

Here's a look at all of the supplies I used for this card. I like that it is easy to mass produce with minimal supplies and can be customized to fit your recipient. Another bonus is that it is flat so it will go through the mail easily.

20210712_150042-2

I started by trimming a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack. I choose a pattern with geometric shapes to go along with the Art Deco theme. Anyone else keep pattern paper forever? I encourage you to use it as a background to any card! Then, I die cut the Reeded Deco Curve Border die from green foil cardstock from the Polished Foil Pad. I die cut twice to create the border around my sentiment. The emerald green color is so pretty.

20210715_135526

For the sentiment, I die cut an oval from the center of my pattern paper. I ink blended some dark green dye ink around the edges for a halo effect, and silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Art Deco Birthday Greetings stamp set. Finally, I added green Fairy Jewels around my card for a little sparkle.
