Amazing Whittle Giraffe!
by Birgit Norton

IMG_6331
Howdy~ho Poppystamps friends!  I have the cuuuuutest card to share with you today, featuring the fun Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit.  Do you see a little sneak peek behind the scenes?  Lets jump right in and I'll give you all the details.

IMG_6327I knew I wanted to use the Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit, so I cut the giraffes out of a piece of pale yellow cardstock from the 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad.  I cut the tree pieces and the clouds out of a piece of white cardstock that had been previously embossed with a large polka dot pattern, which I found in my box of scraps.  I added color to each of the pieces using Copic markers on the giraffes and tree trunk and Distress Oxide inks on the clouds and tree canopies.  (I had cut two of the canopies).  Now what to do with the background??

IMG_6326I was a bit perplexed on what to do for a background until I came across the Nordic Flower Heads from the spring release.  I cut them out three times using soft yellow and soft orange from the same 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad, and a piece of cream colored cardstock from my scrap box.  I commenced to laying the flowers out in a random pattern, trying to mix up the colors as much as I could, while covering the front of an A2 sized card.  I snipped off the flower pieces that were overhanging the sides and cut a piece of vellum that measured 4"x5 1/4" and glued it to the top of the flowery background.

Next, I glued the scenery pieces onto the front of the card, over the vellum layer.  I cut both the wavy and straight banners from the Sentimental Banners set out of white cardstock and had to decide which of the wonderful sentiments I was going to use.

Happy Spring!
by Rachel Duong

IMG_4881

Hi Everyone! It's spring and have I told you how much I love the weather?! Not only that, but the birds chirping is music to my ears. I am back with another Poppystamps card using the "Nordic Bird Bunch!"  Casually sitting on a fence, these birds are enjoying a peaceful morning. Leftover die cuts on hand, these birds are from my Challenge Reminder post. Let's get started...

IMG_4876

The "Nordic Bird Bunch" birds were die cut in glitter, pearlescent, and shades of blue and orange(for the beaks) paper. The Memory box paper packs are listed below. 

IMG_4866

I chose a patterned paper from the Memory Box "Anemone Grove" paper pack for the background. Next I ran an Open Studio embossing folder "Vintage Tray" through my die cutting machine with an aqua shade of blue cardstock. I cut the paper down to look like a fence and blended distress ink over the texture to enhance the lines. IMG_4860

I die cut a speech bubble from the Poppystamps "Word Balloons" set. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Poppystamps "Spring Banners" clear stamp set in black Versafine ink.

IMG_4864
Putting the card together was fast. I glued the pattern paper on to a white card base and then the fence comes next in the lower half of the card. The birds are arranged with the sentiment and I glued it down when I was satisfied with placements. 

IMG_4851

I added Fairy Jewels in light turquoise nest to the sentiment and under the birds. Bakers twine in aqua and white tied in a double bow complete the card. Yay!

IMG_4879That's it for now. I hope you get a chance to craft and create peaceful spring makes. There are so many Poppystamps dies to choose from. See you soon, take care!

Sunrise Butterflies
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_8 (2)Hi Crafty Friends,
Spring is on it's way and hopefully that means beautiful butterflies everywhere (however, since I'm in the Midwest it's probably going to be more cicadas than butterflies BOO!). This orange delight features Poppy Stamps Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and Nordic Lacey Plate.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Are you getting the 17 year or 13 year cicadas this year?
A: Me? YES! We are supposed to be where they overlap so TRILLIONS

Final_1 (3)I started my card by by putting together the butterflies. I layered three different shades of orange from the Sunrise 6x6 Paper Pad for the main Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and then two layers for the small butterflies.  Next, I mounted the Nordic Lacey Plate on a light shade of orange and framed it on glitter paper from the Poppy Stamps Majestic Hues 6x6 Paper Pad. Finally, I add the Thinking of You Banner Sentiment from the Sentimental Banners Stamp & Die Set.

A Bird Bunch Birthday
by Rachel Duong

IMG_4643

Hello there! It's Rachel, and I am excited to share a birthday card with a bunch of birds! I also want to remind you to join in our April Poppystamps Challenge. The theme is "Look Out The Window!" Create a card with a window or something that resembles a window on it. You can also create a scene as if you were looking out a window.

IMG_4637

My window card features fancy birds with so much pizazz! I used the Poppystamps "Nordic Bird Bunch" die, it comes with six birds. I die cut the birds using pearlescent white and aqua, navy and white glitter paper, and a periwinkle shade of blue. Paper comes from Memory Box paper packs listed below. I assembled the birds and I used a fine point black Sharpie marker to color the area for the eye. Also don't forget the orange beaks!

IMG_4643

Next I die cut the "Arched Gothic Cathedral Window" in white cardstock for the top piece and Memory Box "Anemone Grove" patterned paper for the accent. Using the negative shape of the window, I traced it on a piece of vellum, cut it out and glued it under the window.

IMG_4625

I die cut the "Nordic Lacy Plate" in a heavy white cardstock. This is a beautiful backdrop for any card occasion. Then I adhered the window to the background and adhered it to a white cardbase. 
IMG_4634

I arranged the birds on the card. I glued them down when I felt it looked just right. A Happy Birthday sentiment strip fit perfectly on the window trim. Finally I added a beautiful embellishment at the top of the window. 

IMG_4641

I had a blast creating this card, it is just too "tweet!" I love the shades of blue and the fancy papers with glitter and shine. The birds are so handsome in their sweaters!

That's all for today. Please join the challenge. Link up your photo and two winners will be selected. Good luck to you! See you very soon.
