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

I first white heat embossed the flowers on watercolor cardstock.

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.

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.

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.

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.

Bright Blossoms
by Candice Crawford

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 5.27

Hey there crafty friends, its Candice here, sharing with you another card design. 

Today's card is a one layer card featuring the Poppystamps Bright Blossoms Stencil. The large bloom from the Bright Blossoms stencil is a great focal image for an A2 size card. 

 May 27 Blog Post 3

To get started, I created a mask of the Image. To do this, you will need to trace the flower and leaf images in pencil onto a sheet of white card stock. Next, fussy cut the traced image with your scissors to create individual mask pieces of the design. 

 May 27 Blog Post 4

Now adhere the stencil to a clean 6x6 inch piece of white card stock using purple tape. Place each of your leaf masks back into the stencil with some repositionable tape.  With Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick, ink blend these colors on to the blooms of the stencil. The leaf masks you placed down earlier will prevent the pink ink from transferring to the leaf images on the design.

After coloring the blooms, remove the leaf masks from the stencil. Next place down your bloom masks on top of your coloring, then adhere the stencil back over your image with purple tape. With your Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide inks, ink blend these two colors onto each of the leave images of the stencil design. Apply the Peeled Paint ink first, then apply Crushed Olive ink on just the tips of the image to create depth and dimension.  After blending, remove the masks and stencil. The results are stunning.

Now with your Memory Box Texture Dot Grid stencil, or any tiny polk a dot stencil from your stash, adhere the stencil over your colored blooms and leaves using purple tape. With a light grey ink, I am using Stampin' Up Smokey Slate, ink blend the grey ink onto the open white spaces of your image to create the dotted background.

Next remove the stencil from the image and die cut the panel with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die.  You will be left with 2 separate pieces. A frame and the center focal image. Now die cut the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame again from a plain piece of 4.25 x 5.5. inch white card stock. Adhere the plain white frame to a turquoise A2 size card base.

Then add the center portion of the stenciled bloom image to the card based within the white border frame. With a 1.25 inch strip of vellum card stock, stamp with the sentiment "Sending heartfelt sympathy" in Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

 May 27 Blog Post 2

Lastly adhere your vellum sentiment strip to the color stenciled card front with some adhesive tape runner. Embellish the card with a few pink enamel dots and your card is finished. I hope you've enjoyed today's card tutorial and found some great inspiration. 

Thank you for joining me today. Until next time, happy crafting!

Cherry Blossom Wreath
by Sue McRae

IMG_1466c

Welcome to another day of crafty goodness at Poppystamps! Sue here today with the amazing Cherry Blossom Stamp and Die Set.

The Cherry Blossom wreath is large, it measures just a smidge over 5.25" across and takes up a full card front. I really wanted this wreath to be the star of the card so I used the entire image.

IMG_1452c

I heat embossed the wreath in gold sparkle embossing powder on watercolour paper and used Zig Real Brush Markers in some vibrant shades for watercolouring. 

IMG_1457c

I die cut the wreath and adhered it to a 5.25" striped blue paper from the Springtime Bouquet Stripes & Dots Paper Pad with foam squares.

I searched through my stash for a small and simple sentiment to stamp in the centre of the wreath.

IMG_1471c

Next I took the Holiday Mistletoe die and die cut it several times from vellum to tuck around the outside and inside of the wreath. This adds texture and more depth to the card. Remember to look through your holiday dies as they can be adapted for card designs all year long.

IMG_1460c

As my final step I adhered the wreath panel to a 5.5" white square card base.

Big Donut Trio
by Candice Crawford

 

Blog Post 3.17

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are all having a wonderful St.Patrick's Day. 

Today I am sharing with you three projects I made with the popular Big Donut die from Poppystamps. This die set creates the cutest layered donuts that are realistic enough to eat. I paired the Big Donut die with the Donut Outline die and the Donut What I'd do stamp set to create a coordinated ensemble of donut cards and tags.

Blog Post 3.17.20.5

To make the cards, I first cut the donuts and icing layers from scrap pieces of kraft, white, brown, pink and black card stock with the Big Donut die set. I then mixed and matched the donut layers with coordinating icing layers to resemble actual donuts.

Blog Post 3.17.20.7

I used the tiny hearts from the die set to create heart sprinkles on one of the donuts. Then used my sprinkle embellishments from my stash to create the rainbow and chocolate sprinkles for the other donuts.  

Blog Post 3.17.20.6

With my Double Stitched Rectangle Frames die, I created the card fronts for both cards using some white and brown card stock from my stash. I used the Double Stitched Tag Frames die set to create my tag base. The Double Stitched Rectangle frame die set is perfect for making stitched card front layers for your cards and one of my favorite dies I turned to with almost every project. Next, I sponged on some antique linen distress oxide ink onto my square and rectangle white card stock pieces to create the appearance of cream card stock. 

Blog Post 3.17.20.2

I then adhered my donut die cuts onto of the inked layers layers with some liquid glue. A few donuts on both the card and tag were popped up with 3M foam tape. Glossy accents were use on the icing layers of the donuts for some added dimension and shine. 

Blog Post 3.17.20.4

For the sentiments on the cards, I die cut the "donut" word outline from black card stock. Next, I cut the individual letters that spell donut, from a strip of white card stock and placed them onto of the black outline piece. I sponged each of the letters with antique linen distress oxide ink to make the letters appear cream. Next I stamped coordinating sentiments from the Donut What I'd do stamp set. The sentiment "You Are the Icing To My" was stamped in Versafine Onxy black ink while the sentiments "Forget You Are Awesome" and "Sprinkled With Love" were stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. 

Blog Post 3.17.20.3

I added a smaller white tag from the Heart Tag Trio die set to my tag as an extra embellishment. I backed the mini heart tag with a piece of pink card stock to fill in the heart shape. I cut fishtails to both ends of the sentiment banner strip and popped the entire sentiment up on foam tape. Then punched a whole at the top of my tag to add the embellishment and string.

Blog Post 3.17.20.1

I really like how each of the projects came out. I hope you've enjoyed today's project share and found some inspiration to make your own set of donut cards and tags. Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Valentine's Day Shaker Card
by Nadine Carlier

Valentines Day Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a Valentine's Day shaker card. Have you all started making your Valentine's Day cards yet?
For my card, I used the Poppystamps Grid Heart Frame cut from white cardstock and the Graceful Heart Frame cut once from white cardstock and once from pink vellum. To adhere the two Graceful Heart Frame layers together, I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite. I then adhered the two layers onto the Grid Heart Frame layer.

1

Instead of using acetate to make my shaker card I decided to use some pink vellum behind the Grid Heart Frame. I then added some 3D Foam Tape and for the inside of my shaker, I used the hearts that were cut out from the Grid Heart Frame and some pink seed beads.

2

Then I took the big heart that was cut from the Graceful Heart Frame and used one of the stamps from the Poppystamps Valentine's Fun Clear Stamp Set and stamped it with Delicata Pink Shimmer ink.
