Party Animal Card
by Nadine Carlier

Party Animal Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello there Poppystamps fans! Nadine here and I am sharing a fun party animal card with you today.  When I was trying to figure out what to make I saw this scrap piece of burlap sitting on my table and I immediately thought it would make a fun background for the cute Poppystamps Whittle animal dies.  I have never used burlap on a card like this before, it was pretty easy to do I just cut it into a square and adhered it down.

I die cut out the Weeping Willow Branch in dark green cardstock and adhered it to top of the card over the burlap.  For the Whittle Monkey, I die cut him out in dark brown cardstock and also a beige cardstock, cut out his face, tummy, and ears from the beige cardstock and adhered them to the dark brown. Then I wrapped his tail around the vine of the Weeping Willow.

For the Whittle Lion and the Whittle Tiger, I cut them both out in yellow-orange color cardstock and used my Copic markers to color them in a little.  The Whittle Tiger I decided to have her sit on the larger of the two Whittle Mounds.

I then cut out the Whittle Oval Wood Frames, once using dark brown cardstock and again using white cardstock.  I used the dark brown for the frame itself and used the inner part from the white to stamp the sentiment "Have Fun You Party Animal" from the Whittle Everyday Stamp Set.  Then die cut some of the Cheery Cardinals and adhered them around the frame on the Weeping Willow Branch.

After I adhered all the Whittle Animals on my card I felt it still needed a little more so got out my airbrush machine and airbrushed on some Copics on the burlap, animals, and sentiment.  Then my card was complete! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Jungle party
by Tina Wilstrup

Jungle1

Hello everyone, and welcome! Today I'm showing you just how much of a jungle party you can have with the gorgeous summer release products!
Jungle1

First I cut an A2 panel from watercolor cardstock, spritzed it with water and added Nuvo shimmer powder in Green parade. I kept adding more water and powder until I was happy with the look. It's hard to show on a photo but I love the shimmery look these powders give in real life.
Jungle1

I then used the Fun floral sidekick frame die to cut 4 frames. I wanted my top layer light and "floating", so I cut off all the fern leaves with my scissors.
Jungle1

For my top layer I used yupo paper and Ranger alcohol ink in Limeade, Patina and Gold mixative. Again i kept adding color until I liked it. I was going for a dense dark jungle in the back with a lighter front. 

You'll notice that I didn't add my sentiment before attaching the frames. The sentiment from Whittle everyday stamp set I stamped fine with my stamping tool, but be aware that the yupo paper does not handle heat very well. I had to heat set the WOW! Gold pearl embossing powder very carefully. 
Jungle1

I cut a bunch of the cute Whittles - monkey, koala, lion, tiger and turtle, all part of the summer release! I colored them with my Copics and popped them up with foam squares. Now, I know they don't naturally live together, so let's just pretend they came from near and far to celebrate. 
Jungle1

The finishing touch was Nuvo drops in pale gold.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to create!

Turtley Awesome
by Marybeth Lopez

 Hello! Hope you all enjoyed the blog Blitz!  The winners will all be announced August 29 ... 

I have a fun little card using some of the new Poppystamps Summer Dies all linked below. I love that the Whittle Everyday stamp set, goes  with so many of the Whittle characters.

I used ALL WHITE CARDSTOCK for this card, everything was  ink blended with the brushes. 

Fullsizeoutput_2cc6

 In case you are wondering where I got the coconuts .... I just cut ends of the clouds and then colored them brown.

I didn't do the sky solid blue because I wanted it to look like light clouds in the sky background  .

Fullsizeoutput_2cc5

I used some masking tape to do the grass then picked it up and moved it down on the green area and then blended the sky portion with my blue inks.

Fullsizeoutput_2cc4

I leave my white images in the panel , sometimes easier to blend with out worrying about fingerprints.

Thank you for the visit and I hope you have a great day.

Whittles Boy Card

DSC_0373

Hi Poppy fans! Do you have any little ones in your life? Some 'littles' who love animals? 

Poppystamps released some adorable new animal whittles this month. Have you been enjoying all the inspiration by the design team? I hope so. And I hope you've commented on the sets you've been eyeing.

My card today is  a Whittle scene of some of my favorite jungle animals.

DSC_0371_wm

The new whittle dies cut the image out as well as imprint the fabulous personalities of each animal. LOVE!

DSC_0365

I wanted a jungle scene with a warm glow, and decided to do a watercolor with my Kuretakes and water color paper. To that I splashed on some Mr. Huey white and  Adirondac Lettuce.

DSC_0366

I love framing my scenes, but didn't want the whole Sidekick frame, so I simply snipped out what I didn't need or want, and left one little branch to balance the monkeys in the trees.

DSC_0370

Sassy little monkeys think the lion doesn't notice them in the palm fronds. Think again, little monkeys!

DSC_0368

Hope my card brought a smile, and maybe some inspiration too.

Don't forget, this is the last day to leave your comments on the blog blitz cards. Your chances to win increase with each comment. And each Blog Blitz post has a new die up for grabs! Hope you're in the winner's post on the 29th!

Happy crafty creating everyone!

The little Whittle faces are all adorable! You can mix and match them to create whimsical seasonal scenes for a bright CAS punch using colorful cardstock, or you can ink them up or paint them for a different effect.

Challenge Reminder: ABC Anything But a Card
by Nancy Penir

38036488_2373358556223825_7087326715692711936_n

Hello, and welcome to my reminder... a reminder that there's a challenge you don't want to miss! ABC or Anything But a Card.

DSC_0269_wm

3 tags for grandchildren going back to school. I'll pop these onto some new pencils or something fun that will start them off with a smile.

DSC_0255

First, loosely watercolored my background on a taped down watercolor Cardstock. If you tape it down first, it will dry flat. Makes it much easier to work with.

DSC_0260

After I stamped all my images, they were Copic colored and cut out.

DSC_0267_wm

Each tag was stamped with a sentiment and some waves, the given some bing with rainstones.

DSC_0272

DSC_0273

Specialized tags are a great way to say, 'You're special to me', and are so much fun to make. Hope you can play along this month. There's always a gift certificate to the Poppy store as the prize. And we love to see what you make. Have a great week!
