Spread your wings and fly

Hello everyone! All good things must come to an end and today I'm sharing my last card for Poppystamps as I chose to step down from the design team due to personal reasons. Butterflies to me symbolise change and growth, so it absolutely fits just right. It wasn't until after I made this card that I thought of the funny coincidence, that I used the Beautiful butterflies sidekick frame on my first card for Poppystamps as well. You can check it out here

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.

The butterfly frame I covered with the coordinating stencil and lightly ink blended a bit of Distress ink over the butterflies. As I assembled the card I didn't like the white frame, so I ended up ink blending the whole frame.

I layered the 3 frames only adding glue to the frames, not stems, flowers or butterflies. I thought it would make it look more airy. I then stamped a sentiment and cut out butterflies from glitter cardstock with the coordinating (and included) butterfly die.

I adhered them with a dot of glue just to the centre of the butterflies for a bit of dimension. Just look at that sparkle.

That's it from me guys, it's time for me to spread my wings and fly. I enjoyed creating with these wonderful dies and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. I'll still be making cards so do stop by my blog or Instagram, I'd sure love to see you!

Roses and Butterflies
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.597862898961E12

Hello everyone! For today's card I've played with a couple of shimmery watercolor pigment powders and some Memory Box products.
Watermark1.597862898961E12

I first white heat embossed the flowers on watercolor cardstock.
Watermark1.597862898961E12

I carefully dabbed the colors on and spritzed with water. With a paper towel I dried off the edges and any spots that were too dark, but I didn't overdo the use of water because I feel the powders truly shine when the pigment is allowed to do it's own thing.

After it was completely dry I buffed off the color that was on top of the embossing powder.

I cut a piece of vellum to size and dry embossed it. I white heat embossed the sentiment on the same color cardstock I used for base. I first adhered the flower and sentiment to the vellum which allowed for glue on the back of the vellum. Here I'm trying to show you the shimmery galaxy like flowers.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Stay safe and crafty.

Multiple flower cards
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.595446684499E12

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.

July challenge reminder: Glim and Glam
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.590430226522E12

Hello everyone, Tina here today with a reminder to enter the July Glim and Glam challenge.  The rules are simple, you just need to use a die or stamp from Poppystamps and create something that is crafty and sparkly. Plus, if you enter you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!! Watermark1.590430226522E12

Today I have made a spinner card. I first cut a piece of cardstock to 5.5"x8.5" and scored and folded one end at 1"5/8 and the other end at 2"5/8. I also added the gourgeous wide washi tape to an A2 panel.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I then ahdered the washi tape panel to the large flap of the base. I cut off the overhanging part with my trimmer and adhered that to the other flap. 
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I cut the Summer blossoms sidekick frame from white cardstock and teal glitter paper. I also the Graceful Faerie from white cardstock twice, as well as 2 sets of wings and 2 partial cuts of the farie (one mirrored) from the glitter paper.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I fuzzycut the partial cuts to fit as a dress and adhered to the body of the faerie. On the back of one faerie I placed a thin silver thread. I would have used clear, but I didn't have any. I then glued the wings together so I had 2 double sided wings. Since the wings were now going to add quite a bit of bulk, I adhered 2 itty bitty pieces of cardstock to the back of one faerie (on top of the silver thread), and glued the 2 faeries together with the wings set in between.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

Since the space in the frame is limited I let the silver thread continue to one of the flowers in the frame. Be heavy with your adhesive. You want to make sure the thread doesn't move. Also, make sure you check that you spinner can actualy spin. I had to adjust the wings, since the wings hit the frame. I then adhered the glitter cardstock frame on top, and adhered the left side of it to the smaller flap of the base.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

I didn't want to disturb the front with my sentiment, so I added it inside the card.
Watermark1.590430226522E12

All done. Before you place the card in the envelope, make sure you twist the faerie/spinner element. When your recipient opens the card, the tiny faerie will spin and spread all that sparkle.

Now it's your turn. For all the details on the challenge and how you can win a gift certificate to the Poppystamps store click HERE!  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

Summer birthday
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.593510977832E12

Hello everyone! Can you believe it's July? The last 4 months feel more like years. Right? It's officially summer though and we can at least enjoy the wonder of flowers. So today I have a dry embossed, watercolored card for you.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I started by applying ink to the inside of the embossing folder. I used Distress ink, since they're easy to clean. I spritzed a bit of water, wiped off the flower part as best I could, and laid the watercolor cardstock on top. I then ran it through my die cutting machine. Make sure you follow directions for your machine, these are thick embossing folders.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I first heat set the ink with my heat tool and then applied a dark yellow ink - pad directly to paper - over the sunflower. Notice that I got some yellow into the blue background. I'll cover that later. With a waterbrush I carried some of the ink to the rest of the petals. I again made sure it was completely dry before lightly running over my embossing ink. I did get more ink on than planned, but I had just reinked my pad. So that's something to keep in mind. I added a clear  glittery embossing powder and heat set that. Then I used my finger to dab embossing ink to the middle of the flower and applied an embossing powder that's a mix of gold, silver and copper. Watermark1.593510977832E12

I then cut my scallopped frame and placed over the sunflower. Here I've already cut off a couple of corners but you can still see that it's quite off set. I adhered the flower and frame to a white cardbase.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I cut a couple of butterflies and a happy birthday sentiment from glitter cardstock. I absolutely love this teal color and it's the perfect contrast to the yellow flower.
Watermark1.593510977832E12

I adhered the sentiment cuts and then played around with placing the butterflies strategically to cover my ink pad mistakes from earlier. I didn't cover all of them, but most.

So there you have my sparkly flower card, and in case you missed it the challenge theme this month is Glim and Glam - add some sparkle.

See you next time. In the meantime, happy crafting!
