by Nadine Carlier

Friendship Card using Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here today with a CAS friendship card that could also easily be made into a Valentine's card as well.  I used the new Tumbled Heart Balloon Collage and the Whittle Elephant dies along with the Love and Friendship stamp set all from the new 2019 Valentine release.

Beautiful Love Die and Alcohol Inks
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_9478

Hello and Happy February to you all! I have a new technique ( For Me) that I am using today. I recently learned about Alcohol Ink watching a video 

by .  Jennifer McGuire I highly recommend you visit her blog and the link I gave you to see how to do this. It was so new to me that I forgot to take pictures as I was making the papers.

All the dies I used are from Poppystamps : Whittle Mouse, Simple Thinking of  You and the beautiful Seed Love Collage I layered the Love die twice for a bit more dimension.

Download-1

Above and below is a picture of one of the papers I created using Alcohol inks, each one will be  different, just play with it. I ended up adding alcohol to my glass work surface , I had lots of leftover ink on the glass . I turned my Yupo paper( the ink moves around on this paper) over and placed it on the drips from the first paper with ink, that's  how I ended up with a very soft look to my card and no wasted inks.

If you are interested in learning please go to the pro.... Jennifer McGuire.... Linked for you above. It's way more fun that I thought but it is a bit messy.

I sure had fun making the background of this card and I love the added gold shimmer.  Poppystamps dies toped this card oh so many choices to make, I wanted to keep the dies white so they would stand out on the inked paper. 

Thank you for the visit today . I hope you have a crafty day my friends.

I Otter Love Ya
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5994-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so glad you could join us today! These sweet little otters are swimming by to wish us all a very Happy Valentine's Day! I think this Whittle Otter  is my very favorite from our entire new release! I started out with a blended ink background made from distressed oxide inks, then splattered with water to create these swirling droplets of color. You can either imagine the otters floating by on their backs, or swimming to to the surface with goodies in their paws. If you are a fan the sea otters of the West Coast, or the sleek River Otters that we have here in Florida, then you are going to love these cuties!

IMG_5991-wm

One otter is holding the small Whittle Heart, and one otter is holding the tops from the Dandelion Stem, which look like tiny, artsy sea urchins! Perhaps it is a gift for his sweet Valentine?

Thank you all so much for dropping by today!

Valentine's Release Blog Blitz Begins!
by Jeanne Jachna

Otter-Love-One
You picked  a great day for a visit!  Poppystamps has just added a new Valentine's release to the store and our blog blitz begins today!  That means we're sharing projects made with the new release and offering some prizes on every blog blitz post for the next two weeks.   You can see the new release in the store here. 

Otter-Love
I like non traditional colors for holidays because they're unexpected and catch the recipient by surprise.  I'm guessing Mr. J would be happy with a pink and red Valentine from me, but I know he'll like this one even more. 
Otter-Love-Two
For this card you need three shades of blue card stock.  I cut the new Wavy Heart from a panel of the lightest shade, and then adhered the panel (with the open window) to my card base.  I cut the Wavy heart two more time from the darker shades of blue, and alternating the colors inserted the die cuts into the negative space in the soft blue panel.
Otter-Love-Four
I cut only a few of the wave stripes a second time from the darker blue shades and tucked the Whittle Otters so their paws are hanging over the die cut waves.
Otter-Love-Five
The little guys are held in place with a bit of tape.  When this piece is assembled it's easy to attach over the completed panel with adhesive foam tape.  The tape adds some dimension to the waves. 
Otter-Love-Three
The Doodle Happy Valentine's Day sentiment is also new.  I embellished the completed design with smaller hearts cut with the Heart Trio Showcase Die and some sparkling clear sequins to look like a sparkle of light on the water. 
Otter-Love-Six

And now the part you've been waiting for.. the giveaway!  The prize on this post is the Wavy Heart die!

The blog blitz runs from January 9-21. We'll be giving away a prize on every blog blitz post during this time. To enter to win you need to leave a comment on ONLY the posts that you wish to enter.

Whittle Winter Owl
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5921-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so glad you could drop by today and take a look at this cute little Whittle Owl! All of the little characters in our Whittle collection are so much fun to mix and match to create beautiful winer scenes. Today, our little grey Whittle owl sits high on the Swaying Birch, way up on the mountainside of the Mountain Hills Plate.

IMG_5917-wm

This card was so much fun to make too! I had a few alcohol inks on hand, but I didn't have any shades of blue, until just the other day! I was so excited to create this card, with the evening sky, and the last bit of the sun dipping down behind the mountain.

To begin, I used YUPO paper and only 3 inks, a shade of pink, a shade of purple, and a shade of blue. I dripped the inks across the paper, then took a cotton ball with just a little bit of blending solution, and gently "wiped" the paper left to right until I achieved the results I wanted. The fun part about using alcohol inks on YUPO paper is the way you can control this chaotic burst of color. You can create swirls, stripes, loops, waves, puddles, just by blending and pushing the ink in different patterns.

IMG_5913-wm

While my YUPO panel was drying, I cut out the Mountain Hills Plate in white and green, then layered them to give just little bits of green peeking out under the white to look like snow. I then cut the Swaying Birch and the Whittle Owl in dark and light grey, then put it all together!

 

IMG_5919-wm

The alcohol inks and YUPO give the background a beautiful, saturated burst of color against crispy white snow, but this design would work in so many different backgrounds too. You could use oxide inks to create a galaxy or northern lights background, or watercolors, or even solid color card stock to create a night sky.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Be Jolly
by Jeanne Jachna

Be-Jolly-Five

Jeanne here today!  I hope you're enjoying all the beauty of the holiday season.  I love playing with Poppystamps dies... it doesn't matter if you love Clean and Simple or like to add as many as you can to make a scene like I did today!  Poppystamps has something for EVERYBODY!

Be-Jolly
I started with a simple background.  I adhered the Diamond Background die from red card stock to a soft pink panel. Next I adhered the largest Double Stitch Rectangle Frame cut from white card stock to the panel to give it a finished look.  After trimming off the excess (the frame is smaller than the background die)  I adhered the completed panel to a card base.
Be-Jolly-Three
The largest Jar die was cut from baby blue card stock.  I cut the Tree Line Hill die from white card stock, and then cut it again using the Jar die so it would layer perfectly when I attached them together. 
Be-Jolly-Four
All that was left was embellishing!  I created a floral to adorn the jar using the Mod Poinsettias, Holly Leaf Branch, and Perfect Pine Needles.  A gem adorns the center of the layered poinsettia flower.
Be-Jolly-Two
I added a Wilderness Moose to the scene.  He's trecking across the frozen landscape.  A bitty Circle Basics die makes a sun.  And a simple "Be Jolly" sentiment in red coordinates perfectly with the background.

Be-Jolly-One

I hope you find some time to make today!  Hugs!
