Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

Sphoorti here with two shaker cards chock full of baby kittens. My last two posts (Kittens All Around and Baby Kittens) were about cards I made with the Baby Kittens craft die. When I have a die out that I want to work with, I cut out multiple die cuts so that I have spares in case I mess up, or in case I come up with some other technique or idea later that doesn't require me to pull out the die from my supplies again. So, when I got this die out for my last two cards, I cut out so many of these kitties because well, can you help it? They're so cute! And also because I started having ideas as I was making the cards with them. These are two of the ideas I had in between. I have four more cards coming up with the same kitties but two different techniques, so stay tuned!

I started off by die cutting a million kitties with the Baby Kittens craft die using black card stock as well as with glitter card stock from the GP1007 Glitzy Glitter Pad. I also cut out the outer frame from the 2474 Double Scalloped Stitched Frames craft die using Neenah Solar White #110 card stock. I cut out a piece of acetate and applied it to the back of the frame. Then, I used some double sided foam tape and adhered it to the perimeter of the frame.

I filled the shaker well with all the kitties that I die cut and also added some confetti for additional sparkle and seed beads for sound. I sealed the shaker in the back with another piece of acetate. Then, I adhered this to my 4.25" x 5.5" card base. I heat foiled the Hello sentiment using the PSF807 Birthday Wishes Poe Script Hot Foil Plate and Dies and die cut it and adhered it to the bottom left side of the shaker. I adhered silver jewels along the top right side of the frame and called it done.

I made the second card using the same technique, except - I used the "Thinking of You" sentiment from the PSF804 You Are Amazing Poe Script Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Dies and adhered it to the top right side of the shaker so that it doesn't cover up the kitties that settle at the bottom when you display the card upright.

Kittens All Around!
by Sphoorti

B41E7DFF-1C43-48C1-9AB8-E42727A367E9

 

Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

I'm back with yet another kitty card! This one has the same cutest, tiniest kittens that I used on my previous post! My inspiration for this post was Ashley Tucker, who's an expert at making Spinner Cards. She has great tutorials on YouTube that outline the process. She goes over the process really well, and I think her videos are more effective for learning or implementing the technique, so I'll skip trying to explain the mechanism with words. But, I'll cover the aspects outside of the mechanism.

First I started off by cutting a whole bunch of kitties with the Baby Kittens craft die. I used black 130# card stock, so the kitties were pretty sturdy to begin with. I stacked a few together anyway for additional dimension and the "chipboard" like feel so that they can easily be spun.

 

A6CF19AA-EEE6-4092-A70B-D323E4413E31

 

I cut out a circular frame using acetate (I wanted them to look as if they're floating). I adhered all the kitties along the circumference of the circular frame.

I die-cut a circle for the center to cover the foam tape around which the acetate frame spins, and I stamped it with a sentiment from stamp set that's included in the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

 

There's a little paw print in the stamp set in the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit. I stamped it in black and clear heat embossing that as well. I ran my shimmer pen on the kitties to make them sparkly and then covered them with glossy accents for that shiny look and smooth feel.

It looked like something was missing so I talked to my crafty friend and genius, Judy, about it and she suggested putting the black strips at the top and the bottom. I went with some strong double sided adhesive, and put some black Therm-O-Web DecoFoil on top. It looked much better, but I still felt like it was missing something. So, she suggested that I use a black frame around the sentiment circle, and I used a circle die set to cut out a frame with a sheet from the Black Glossy Paper Pack. It matched perfectly with the foil. I think I was 90% happier after implementing this suggestion from her. Shout out to Judy and her creativity!

 

I was contemplating putting some dots around the kittens (like little foiled black dots), but decided to stop before I mess up the card.

Here's a video of the spinning mechanism. I used a pair of scissors to spin the kitties.

 

 

Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? Please do let me know! We love to hear from you! Stay tuned for even more little kitty cards now that I have this set out!

Tickled Pink
by Nancy Penir

When I compose a card, it's usually with a purpose in mind, like a birthday, or get well. Hi there Poppy friends! Nancy here, and I've got a fun Whittle card for you today, with a technique using embossing folders and ink pads.

DSC_0002

The embossing folder is brushed with ink, either using the ink pad directly or with a brush. Direct application of the ink pad gives it a richer more vibrant color. It's your choice as to what you want the background to look like. Soft or vibrant. Then the paper is inserted in the ef, and run through the machine.

This card was done with the ink pad.

I took this picture outside, which gives a better color representation. I love how the wave crests stay white.

Indoors, lighting is always tricky. The colors seem softer.

Poppystamps embossing folders are amazing! Deep and textured, you can see the waves and how they roll. 

Hope you try this technique, if you haven't already. Lots of embossing folders to choose from in the shop right now.

Happy Crafting!

Afternoon Sloths
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Friends!

Welcome to Poppystamps! Today I am sharing a fresh and fun Poppystamps card using some very sweet dies from our newest release! Take a look!

IMG_2725-wm

What is cuter than a couple of sloths in the afternoon? I started out by inking some watercolor paper with Distress Oxide Inks, and using it as my background panel. It reminds me of sunlight filtering through a lush jungle.

 

IMG_2711-wm

I added the brand new Leafy Vines Slim Plate, in this fabulous slimline shape! Then I added the Holiday Mistletoe, and a few flowers from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel Set. The finishing touch? A pair of Whittle Sloths! It's just a lazy afternoon!

IMG_2726-wm

This card was, of course, SO MUCH FUN to make! I think I say that every time I post a card, because working with these adorable Poppystamps dies is ALWAYS fun!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

I'm popping in to remind everyone that the monthly challenge going on at Poppystamps is Animal Menagerie.

IMG_0598c

I made a baby card for the challenge using some of the new Whittle animal dies. The animals in this series are adorable and there's a whole family of them. You can see them all here.

IMG_0580c

The giraffe and hedgehog were die cut from some scrap alcohol ink paper I had and I added some detail with Copic markers. The panda has a fuzzy fun flock belly and of course I had to add googly eyes!

IMG_0585c

The are sitting inside the cute Stitched Envelope that is so easy to put together. I also used the new Whittle Cloud Border with the great stitching.

IMG_0574c

I finished off the card with white paint splatters on the background and a sentiment.

Now it's your turn to make a project for the challenge. You have all month to play along. Just make sure to include an animal on your card and at least one Poppystamps product. The winner will get a gift certificate to the Poppystamps online store! All the details can be found here.

I can't wait to see your creations!
