Wonderful Whittle Gator
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6242-wm

Hello Friends!

We are so glad you are joining us today! Our Summer Release Blog Blitz is in full swing and we have some amazing projects to share with you for the next two weeks! As a new Floridian, I absolutely fell in LOVE with our adorable Whittle animals collection! I used the new Whittle Gator hanging out beneath the Whittle Palm Tree to create a fun, tropical scene.

IMG_6241-wm

We have had SO MUCH rain in Florida this week, it feels like we are under water! So this little Whittle Gator has found a nice Whittle Mound to catch a few rays before the rains begin again. Aren't the little closed eyes too cute? I added an extra set of palm leaves on the Whittle Palm Tree, and added a few Whittle Clouds up in the sky to finish off this bright and bold CAS scene.

But you don't have to live in Florida to add this little Whittle Gator to your die collection! He is available in our new Summer release! But that's not all! Simply leave a comment on this blog post for a chance to win this Whittle gator die!

Blog Blitz

Hello ! Marybeth here today for more Blog Blitz and a chance to win this: Poppystamps Double Scallop Oval and Border die

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post for a chance to win!

Fullsizeoutput_2b97

I stamped the image using Peony Bouquet Clear Stamp from Poppystamps , then heat embossed in white. I then used zig pens to watercolor the image in. When dry I fussy cut the image out.

Fullsizeoutput_2b98

The image above shows the back side of the panel and how I add the fun foam. Messy but it works and seems to be a more even fit than foam tape.

Fullsizeoutput_2b93

I tucked the peony image inside the frame and used a bit of  fun foam where needed.

Fullsizeoutput_2b95

Not sure why but when I add my water mark the photo gets duller so I posted both. This Peony was so easy to color in with watercolors.

Blog Blitz
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0341

Poppy fans, welcome to the Summer Blog Blitz! And welcome to my post today featuring the Fun Floral Sidekick Frame and Stencil set. Talk about getting a bang for your buck, the sidekick dies and stencils are one of those 'must haves' in your collection.

DSC_0337_wm

I packed my card with all the options in this frame die and stencil set. Let's take a look at some of it's possibilities.

DSC_0336 2

The background was inked onto watercolor paper. Notice I put most of the color on the corners, and left the left center mostly white. 

DSC_0333

You can see the faint pencil marks where I indicated the area for my sentiment within the frame's window. Also added some shadow with the stencil. The  new Blooming Greetings stamp set has some florals and leaves and I added the flower, and loosely watercolored the petals and leaf.

DSC_0330

I wanted you to see how I applied the inking onto the leaves, through the stencil. 1st off, use Washi to tape down the stencil. You won't be sorry you protected the frame, and anchored the stencil! 

DSC_0342

I cut the frame twice for a bit of depth. Then added the die cut blooms, gathered together in a sort of swag. A closeup shows how each bloom is doubled. Nuvo pearl drops scattered in the flower centers, and around the sentiment. The flowers are included in this die and stencil set. And here's where the fun begins. YOU have 2 chances to win this set! 1st comment on this blog. In fact, comment on every post during the blog blitz for a chance to win the dies you want. Chance 2, follow us on Instagram, comment on the Poppystamps Instagram posts, and tag a friend! You and your friend could win this die and stencil set. One comment per post, please, and GOOD LUCK! It's a 2 week Blog Blitz through the 23rd. Leave a comment through the 26th. Check back on the 29th to see if you won! Thanks so much for joining in fun!

Summer Release Blog Blitz Begins!

Snap-Three
It's a great day for a visit!  Our Summer Release 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 all the new release dies HERE in the store.  You'll find lots of new WHITTLE style critters that are sure to make you smile! 
Snap-Two
I love to make cards with scenes!    This Whittle Koala has found himself up a tree surrounded by snappers!  But it's a beautiful sunny day so if he waits them out he'll be OK!  There's a message in there.. most of our problems are only temporary! 
Snap-One
This card starts with a background of clouds made by using the Stitched Cloudline die as a stencil.  Simply hold the die cut in place and ink around the curvy edge.  Move the die cut up every inch or so and ink it again.  You can ink as many  (or as few) clouds as you like. Next I added Old Paper distress ink to the bottom half of the card to create a sandy beach.  I splattered a darker shade of distress ink over the sandy bottom half using a piece of paper to shield the clouds. 
Snap-Four
All that's left to do is to add the different images to create a scene.   I added Whittle Mounds, Gaters, Crabs,  Palm Tree, Clouds and Koala.  Usually I cut from colored card stock. This time I tried something new and inked scrap pieces of white card stock with distress ink.   I cut the dies from these pieces.   You could also ink the images AFTER you cut them, but this kept the images flat and wrinkle free. 
Snap-Three
I think the details really help bring a scene to life.  I added bitty silly eyes to the gators and extra branches to the palm trees.  If you love the Whittle style dies then you'll NEED the Whittle Everyday stamp set.  It's got lots of punny sentiments that work well with the animals.

Spring Window
by Olga Direktorenko

Hello crafters and welcome to another post of the Blog Blitz. Today you have a chance to win the beautiful Garden Poppy Stitched Frame die from the new Poppystamps release. Just comment on this post by March 17. Winners will be announced on March 19! 

Poppies

I have used this die as well as other Poppy dies to "create a window with a view" scene. I have simply stuck the poppy frame behind the potted flower frame, then added a couple of hills and the background. Finally I mounted the entire piece onto the embossed A2 card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget to leave your comment and I wish you good luck!
