This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together.  Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects.  The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base.  This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet.

Stencil techniques
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.583705980697E12

Hello everyone! Spring is getting closer by the minute and I'm loving the new stencils from the spring release, so once I got started I just couldn't stop myself. I absolutely LOVE stencils, they can be used in so many different ways and today I'm sharing a couple of different techniques. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

Let's start easy, however a bit untraditionally. Here I'm using the Chrysanthemum stencil with just one ink on patterned paper. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

The Whittle cutie rabbit is also cut from patterned paper, and to add a little sparkle I also cut it from glitter paper and offset it behind the patterned paper.

For the next card I switched to white cardstock and 5 colors of ink with the Romantic Blooms stencil.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I first masked off the leaves. Then, starting from the centre of the flower, using a soft yellow, light and dark pink to create depth. I did the same for the leaves while masking off the flowers. I'm not fancy so I simply use Post It's that I tear to fit the needed area.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I just love the soft blended look of this, so all I did was add a sentiment courtesy of Birch Press Designs. And I love the tiny cuts in these label sets that allow for a small ribbon to go through. So romantic. I backed the panel and label with pink glitter paper. Just look at all that sparkle. LOVE! 

Watermark1.583706033425E12

This card features my favorite stencil technique. It's really easy to do and if you use a glitter embossing powder, like I did here, all you really need to add is a sentiment. I cut the Friend folksy script die from black cardstock 3 times and layered it. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Birch Press Designs.
Watermark1.583706033425E12

I'm using the Bright Blossoms stencil. I go over the stencil with a nice thick coat of texture paste. Once the stencil is removed (and cleaned) I add my embossing powder. You then want to set it aside and let it dry completely before heat setting it. Depending on the amount of glitter in your powder you may want to let it dry before removing any excess powder as well. You'll be left with a beautiful textured, and in my case very glittery, impression of your stencil. 

Watermark1.583706133685E12

On this card I'm using the gorgeous Birch Press Designs Midnight Mandala stencil with texture paste and watercolor powders.

IMG_20200308_131318

I recommend spraying your stencil with temporary adhesive. And even then I still get a little bleeding. But I love the shiny textured look.
IMG_20200308_134618
I die cut the border and hugs heart from white cardstock and the heart from glitter paper as well. The white heart was used to back the glitter paper and then I popped it up with craft foam for dimension.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

For my final card I'm using the Memory Box Leafy Jumble stencil for partial stenciling with gold glimmer paste on patterned paper.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I wanted to use a dark paper and white cardstock for die cutting, and I felt this whimsical glittery textured surface would just break the pattern.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I cut out the wheelbarrow 3 times and layered them for sturdiness before popping it up with craft foam. I cut 2 branches of the floral cluster and placed them on the patterned paper. I also cut out the tiny flowers from soft pink and orange glitter paper and added them to the branches. I finished off the flowers with a drop of Fairy Sugar in matching colors. Sentiment label is also popped up.

So there you have them. Thank you for sticking around 'til the end, I really hope I've inspired you. Let me know which technique is your favorite and if there's a technique you'd like me to give more details to in the future. Have a great day, and happy crafting!

Easter Basket
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0043

Hi! Welcome to a post featuring a spring card full of pastel greetings!

DSC_0029

Poppystamps' Sidekick Frames are a favorite choice for quick and easy 'pow'. Wanted to get my Easter stash going, and die cut the Decorated Egg frame from white. So many ways to go from white with this die. One is to use enclosed stencil to color the eggs. Another is to simply cut colored eggs from the Folk Decorated Eggs die set. I started with the new 6 x 6 double sided paper from Memory Box. Once cut, it left me with the opposites of each color. I glued down both so it would be ready for another card.

The colored eggs, the basket of goodies... and a glitter easter greeting... and done!

A closeup of the basket. Don't you just love the emboss the die cutting reveals? The charm of each detailed egg, basket, and even the grosgrain bow are defined.

Hope you're inspired to use the lovely Sidekick frames with the new dies in the store now. And hope the season is bringing sunshine your way! 

Happy Crafting!

Open Split Card Design With Video Tutorial
by Nadine Carlier

Open Split Card Design by Nadine Carlier ps

Hello! Nadine here today sharing an open split card design I created.

Below is a video tutorial showing how I created my card.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.

To make my card, I used a lot of the whittle dies.  I started with the Whittle Cloud Border and the Wave Trio dies to create the base of my card.  Then for all the cute images, I used the Whittle Whale, Whittle Palm Tree, Whittle Crabs, and the Whittle Mounds. For the sentiment, I used the " You're The Coolest" stamp from the Whittle Everyday Clear Stamps.

Pawsitively adore you
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.582380011194E12

Hello Poppy fans! It's still February, the month of love. Today I'm sharing a quick, easy card.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I first ink blended one side of a panel to get a bold ombre effect. 
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I then cut a strip wide enough to back the Curvy Heart side strip and cut a white panel with the die. I also stamped my sentiment.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I backed the panel with craft foam for dimension.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

On the leftover piece of the inked panel I stamped directly pad to paper with my embossing ink and covered with my absolute most favorite embossing powder. You'll see some red flecks in there but it's a dark violet with gold specks in it. So gorgeous! 
IMG_20200222_154637

I then die cut the Whittle dog. I used black Nuvo drops to give him eyes and a nose.

See? Just a few easy steps and you've got yourself a beautiful card for someone you love.
Now don't be shy to leave me a little love down below. Thanks for stopping by!

You Spin Me Round
by Sue McRae

IMG_1084c

Hello crafty friends! Sue here with a Whittle critter card that can be spun around by the recipient!

IMG_20200223_125046166_BURST000_COVER-ANIMATION

I took a few of the Whittle animals and die cut them from scraps of alcohol ink card stock.

IMG_1061c

To make the circle mechanism I die cut the Concentric Rings in colours to match the animals (except for the purple) and I die cut a circle from white card stock that is slightly smaller than the purple ring. 

IMG_1043c

I adhered the coloured rings onto the white circle and die cut another white circle that is smaller than the rainbow rings. I poked a hole through the centre of both.

IMG_1053c

The small white circle has to be large enough to have a brad poke through and to have 4 foam squares adhered around the edge of the circle without touching the brad. This is how the coloured rings will spin. I placed the brad through the top of the coloured circle and into the small white circle with the foam on the back side of the white circle.

IMG_1057c

Then I took the animals and adhered them to the back of the colored circle making sure they don't touch the small white circle or else it won't be able to spin.

IMG_1066c

Now I have my spinning animal wheel.

IMG_1093c

I cut a 4.5" square white card stock and scored random lines onto it. I attached this to my card base then removed the liners from the foam squares on the back of the animal circle and adhered it to the centre of the scored panel. Now the wheel can spin.

IMG_1086c

For the sentiments I white heat embossed a few from the Whittle Love stamp set and adhered them flat so they wouldn't interfere with the animals spinning.

IMG_1074c

This was a fun card to make and is not difficult to create. You would cut down on the steps if you used a solid coloured circle instead of a rainbow one.

My card is perfect to enter for the monthly challenge, Animal Menagerie, here. Don't forget to play along, you have until the end of February!

Thanks for visiting with me today and happy crafting!
