It's a purrrrfecly awesome time to take a look at this adorable kitten creation featuring the Poppystamps die, Whittle Cutie Cat. Take a look!

This little cat is dreaming about a white Christmas, peaceful and calm, with yummy pine needles under the tree!

I started out by cutting out a card stock base in navy blue, then covering it with this beautiful snowflake design washi tape from Memory Box! I just lay the card stock down right on top of the sticky side, then smooth it all down and trim. I love the waxy feel of the card.

I then stamped the sentiment from Poppystmps Christmas Quotes, and cut it out with the matching die for a perfect fit!

I added a few little holiday snowflakes and tiny trees from an older Poppystamps holiday die set. I used a little white, pink, and grey ink to add a little color and dimension to my sleeping Whittle Cutie Cat, and it all came together!

This month we're looking for Cards for Kids!  I don't have any special little people in my life at the moment, but that's ok.  I know this card will be well received by the adult kids in my life too! 

Party-Animal-Two

I made a scene card featuring lots of the WHITTLE Series dies.   The background is a soft blue card stock panel topped with waves  (WAVE TRIO) cut from darker shades of blue card stock.   A few Whittle Mounds make a nice place for the Whittle Gator and Whittle Monkey to hang out. 

Party-Animal-Four

I filled the ocean with Whittle Fish and gave them google eyes to make them even more fun!   Little clear sequin bubbles are rising up through the water.

Party-Animal-One

Brilliant Rings make a sunny sky with only a few Whittle Clouds passing by.  The Whittle Monkey is hanging in a Whittle Palm Tree.  I see him throwing coconuts at the Whittle Gator because they are so mischievous! 

Party-Animal

I hope you find time to play along and make a special card for the special kid in your life!  I know they'll giggle with delight!

Hello everyone! All good things must come to an end and today I'm sharing my last card for Poppystamps as I chose to step down from the design team due to personal reasons. Butterflies to me symbolise change and growth, so it absolutely fits just right. It wasn't until after I made this card that I thought of the funny coincidence, that I used the Beautiful butterflies sidekick frame on my first card for Poppystamps as well. You can check it out here

IMG_20200819_205112

For this card I first cut my cardbase and 3 different frames from different colors of cardstock.
IMG_20200819_205112

The butterfly frame I covered with the coordinating stencil and lightly ink blended a bit of Distress ink over the butterflies. As I assembled the card I didn't like the white frame, so I ended up ink blending the whole frame.
IMG_20200819_205112

I layered the 3 frames only adding glue to the frames, not stems, flowers or butterflies. I thought it would make it look more airy. I then stamped a sentiment and cut out butterflies from glitter cardstock with the coordinating (and included) butterfly die. 

Watermark1.598450555054E12

I adhered them with a dot of glue just to the centre of the butterflies for a bit of dimension. Just look at that sparkle.

Watermark1.598450555054E12

That's it from me guys, it's time for me to spread my wings and fly. I enjoyed creating with these wonderful dies and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. I'll still be making cards so do stop by my blog or Instagram, I'd sure love to see you!
