Wishes and Washi by Nancy Penir

DSC_0171

Well hello and welcome. Nancy here, and I'm sharing a card made with Poppystamps' Diamond Sentiments stamp and die set.

I have the shop link below, and I think you'll find plenty of sentiments included in the set to fit many occasions. Here's an easy way to use the set.

Memory Box's Open Studio has several extra wide Washi tapes that are perfect for creating quick and easy backgrounds. This luscious floral instantly and easily covers a card base. I added a layer of yellow vellum (Hobby Lobby), allowing my die cut to take center stage on the card.

The stamp is a large one, nearly covering an A2 sized panel. I decided to give it bling, and gold embossed the image, before cutting it out.

Next, to color and add the sentiment. So many sentiments included with this set! This card could be for a birthday, or wedding, etc. The leaves are colored with Arteza Ink pens. I haven't used them in a while, and I'm very happy with the bright and bold colors they produce! Add a sentiment (dark green embossed), pop up the die cut, and add a few gems, and done!

Have you tried the wide washi tapes? So versatile, I used one for the lining of my handmade envelope. Makes a greeting extra special to have a matching envelope.

I make many of my own envelopes, using paper rather than cardstock, and lining with the wide washi.

Hope you'll try using washi for your next projects. Be sure to check all the new products in the Poppystamps and Memory Box

(Open Studio) stores!

Have a wonderful weekend, hope it's extra crafty!

It does`nt show much, but I did brush a little distress Oxide "Wilted Violet" ink through the die.

Quick Cards

Hello crafty friends, Happy Friday! 

Are you needing to replenish your card stash? Do you need to make a few cards, but are pressed for time?  Then do I have a treat for you.  Simply run to your washi tape collection and roll out that washi onto some white card stock.  

IMG_3347

For these cards today I am using a larger roll of washi tape from Poppystamps. Unfortunately this washi tape has now retired, but any large size washi tape will work for this project. 

After rolling your washi tape onto some card stock, trim the card stock panels to any size you desire to fit your A2 size card base.

IMG_E3344

For the first two cards, I cut my washi tape panels into two separate pieces. One piece measured 2.75 x 5.5 and adhered the panel onto my A2 card base horizontally with a thin strip of gold card stock to cover the seam.

The second card I used the full 4.25 x 5.5 washi tape panel and adhered it to my card base with some liquid adhesive.  I then took the scraps of the panel and fussy cut a few flower images from the washi tape design to use as my focal image on my 3.5 x 4.75 card front panel. 

I then stamped the sentiments from the Peony Garden Corner stamp set in Versa Fine Onyx black ink. 

IMG_E3345

For this next card, the washi tape panel was cut to 1.5 x 5.5 and adhered to the card base that included the Lattice Plate background. I added another thin strip of gold card stock to cover the seam between the washi tape and the lattice background. 

For the focal image, I layered together a large and medium size heart die cut onto the card with some foam tape.  The larger heart was cut from vellum and the medium size heart was cut with some pink card stock from my stash. Then lastly stamped with a sentiment from the Peony Garden stamp set. 

IMG_3133

And there you have 3 quick and easy cards that can be massed produced to replenish your stash.  I hope you've enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time... Happy Crafting!

Sending Hedge-Hugs
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0068

Hi friends! Poppystamps has some new sets in the store, and thought I'd show you 2 of my favorites. They're a couple of hedge hogs, done whittle style, and they die cut right and left. Just perfect for Valentines, or weddings and or anniversaries when posed kissing! Let's take a look!

DSC_0066_wm

I just loved setting my scene on Memory Box's Sunset Blush Washi Tape. So much so, I did a trio of sending hugs cards using the floral Washi. 

DSC_0061_wm

On the front card I posed the kissing Hedge Hogs over Poppystamps' Wavy Heart. 

DSC_0053

I die cut the heart in several shades of pink and red, and assembled my heart like a puzzle.

DSC_0064_wm

On the third card I used the washi covered card stock to die cut the heart, and kept the washi with waves in the design. There's so much you can do with large washi rolls. I played with colored cardstock for fun, and loved them all!

DSC_0057

For the first card I used grey cardstock

DSC_0081_wm

I also fussy cut a few of the floral designs and popped them up with foam at the top.

I also popped up my hedge hogs with foam.

I hope you check out the store for some fun new dies. They're sure to become favorites for Valentines or any card you make. 

Happy New Year, and happy crafting!

Washi Leafy Garden Border
by Sue McRae

DSCN0193c

Happy Monday crafters! Today I’m using some of Poppystamps wide washi tape for my card design.

I started by taking some of the Cornelia Variegated Wide Washi Tape (this washi tape is available in 3 colours and two widths) and adhering it to white cardstock for die cutting.

DSCN0186c

I die cut the Leafy Garden Border from this and also from a piece of purple card stock.I wanted a shadow effect behind the washi layer so that it popped more from the background. I did this by gluing the washi piece slightly offset from the purple layer.

DSCN0195c

To continue with the purple theme, I die cut the Luscious Script Wishes from watercolour paper and applied a wash of Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, leaving the bottom of the die cut dark and lightening it as I worked up the die cut. Very quick and easy to do!

DSCN0182c

The birthday sentiment was white heat embossed on black cardstock and I die cut the butterfly from the Memory Box Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.

This was a quick card to put together thanks to the washi tape and am using it more and more in my card making, especially when I need a last minute card.

Thanks for visiting with me today and happy crafting!
