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!

A Cup For Kitty
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_7043-wm

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad that you have dropped by the Poppystamps blog, because I have a super sweet card to share with you today! This little kitty, like my own kitties at home, is taking a peek to see if there's anything left in the cup for him. Awwww. I'm really happy with the way this card turned out, and with some new elements that I've used in this card as well. Let's take a look.

IMG_7039-wm

I started out with the Fun Floral Sidekick Frame, using the frame and the flower elements included with it, all cut in bright summery colored cardstock. 

IMG_7019-wm

After I cut the frame in a bright shade of green, I set that aside for a minute to create the background panel, using the beautiful Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape from Memory Box. I measured and pre-cut my background piece out of bright white cardstock, then taped and smoothed the washi tape over the top, then trimmed off the edges. This piece was so pretty just as a little card!

IMG_7022-wm

I adhered the frame onto the cardstock panel, added the Classic Coffee Cup with a foam pop dot, added my little grey Whittle Jumping Kitty, then cut a pile of petals and leaves from the Fun Floral Sidekick Frame and Stencil. I also cut a few leaves from Garden Leaves and Berries, and the tiny bird from the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil. I had quite a pile of elements and die cuts to choose from!

IMG_7024-wm

I ended up selecting the three petal blooms, which remind me of water lilies, or tulips, or fuchsia drops, or whatever fun and artsy flowers you can imagine! I added them all to my card using tiny pieces of adhesive foam to make them pop off the page.

IMG_7031-wm

I finished the design with a few sequins and voila! A cup for kitty!

Thanks so much for joining us today, and keep on crafting!

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!
