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

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!

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!

You are amazing

Hi Poppy fans! For todays card I took inspiration in the current situation in Australia. It is absolutely heartbreaking and my heart goes out to everyone affected.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

First I ink blended a panel to symbolize the blazing fire and set this aside to dry.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I then ink blended another panel to symbolize the burnt trees. After this panel dried I cut it with the Tall skyline Tree frame.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I cut out the Peek a boo koala and colored it. Then I cut off the frame.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I white heat embossed a sentiment on the cut frame and adhered it to the base panel. I adhered the koala as well. From a piece of white cardstock I cut the Samba heart border and measured where I wanted to score it. I then adhered the left side of the panel to the back of the base.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

After adhering the half front, heart cut panel I used my stamping tool to measure where I wanted the sentiments. I didn't want them showing through the cut out hearts.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

I added a couple of dots of black Nuvo drops as eyes and nose for the koala.
Watermark1.579528790702E12

On the "inside" I adhered a couple of the cut out hearts from the border. Let's all pray for the survival of the unique and endemic animals of Australia.

Valentine's blog blitz - Love & Hugs
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.57878356454E12

Happy new year, Poppy fans! We are continuing our valentine's blog blitz and I'm sharing 2 cards today showcasing the beautiful Grid heart frame die. Although the Danish flourists have long adapted the valentine's tradition, I myself have not. So instead I made cards of love and hugs.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For the first card I ink blended a background with pink oxide inks and cut the frame 4 times from white cardstock. I layered the frames and glued them on top of the pink base.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut and colored the Whittle panda. To avoid getting my black marker all over the panda I placed a piece of cardstock behind the eye.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut the envelope, heart tag and love outline letters from white cardstock - the shadow from black cardstock. I ink blended the tag and also the little cut out heart. I stamped the sentiments and tugged the panda into the envelope so it looks like he's holding the tag.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

Both the envelope and love outline are popped up with craft foam and the panda itself is popped up as well. I ran over the tiny heart...
Watermark1.57878356454E12

... as well as the letters with a clear sparkle pen and then glossy accents for a shiny dimensional look. Isn't it pretty!?
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For a final touch I added some clear sequins.

IMG_20200112_000701

The other card is all about hedge-hugs. Here I also ink blended the base with oxide inks but this time I threw in a little purple as well.
IMG_20200112_000701

I cut and colored the Whittle hedgehog. Once again I stuck a piece of cardstock behind the ear to ensure not getting my light and dark colors mixed.
IMG_20200112_000701

I left the hugs heart white but popped it up and backed it with a piece of cardstock inked with the same color as the base.
IMG_20200112_000701

Although the light makes it a little hard to see the Grid heart frame is heat embossed with a pretty soft pink and sparkly embossing powder. Sooo gorgeous!
IMG_20200112_000701

And here's the finished card. I hope I have inspired you. But wait... the best is yet to come! You could win the Grid heart frame used on these cards.

by Nancy Penir

DSC_0013 2

Welcome! Poppystamps begins the New Year with a Blog Blitz and a chance for you to win the beautiful new dies in the 2020 Valentine collection! Come take a look at the new Meadowblossom Frame and Stencil. 

DSC_0012_wm

The beautiful etched heart and frame die cut with perfectly wonderful detail. And Poppy includes the stencil which allows you to color the flowers. Take a look at how I made my card.

DSC_0081

Using 2 Distress Ink colors, I loosely applied ink to my card front.

DSC_0082

You can't see the die cut frame, but I positioned it on my card front, then inserted the heart into the frame and lightly penciled around it. This is where my sentiment will go.

DSC_0083

New to Poppy's Valentine release is this sentiment set called, Valentine's Fun. Hugs and Kisses has the sweetest curly flourish and fits perfectly within the heart.

DSC_0084

DSC_0088

After stenciling and inking my flowers, I added some detail with these copic colors.

DSC_0014

I also added a small bouquet at the top of the heart, and some Nuvo drops to the flower centers.

O Holy Night
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572808249747E12

Hi Poppy fans! It's now 5 days till Christmas and I have a card for you that shows the calm of that holy night.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I die cut and Copic colored the Whittle sleepy fox and the village houses. I picked out the windows from the houses and colored them individually so the houses look like they're filled with light and trees.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

I forgot to take a picture of the background (sorry) but before assembling I inkblended the backgrond with oxide inks and splattered it with silver acrylic paint. I hand cut 2 panels for snowy hills and inked the top of them. The top layer is popped up. I then popped up the houses and fox and shaded under them with Copic markers. Notice the fox' pawprints. He loves the silence and the squeeking snow.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

My plan was to use the O holy noght flourish as smoke from one of the chimneys, and so I wanted to heat emboss it. In order not to break the intricate cut I layered 5 cuts. I then heat embossed 3 layers of WOW! white twinkle embossing powder. It's white with silver glitter and perfect for the smoke.
Watermark1.572808249747E12

This is my last post this year, so I thank you for all your sweet comments and I hope your Christmas is as calm and cozy as this scene.  I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Penguin shaker
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572810370585E12
Hello everyone! We are closing in on that one holy and so very special night and I'm here to share a cute shaker card with you.
IMG_20191127_213640

I first die cut the background and snowy hills of the snowglobe kit. I ink blended the background and the top of the hills using distress oxide inks. I flicked some diluted white acrylic paint over the background for a snowy look.
IMG_20191127_213640

I cut a panel and sprayed it with watercolors sprays. I'll admit this was my first time using them and the intencity of the color kind of surprised me. But I felt the look worked fine for a night time scene. Before the panel dried I also sprayed with a shimmer spray for a clear, frosty and sparkly look.

Poppy shaker2

I die cut the sentiment die and the snowflake tile from silver glitter cardstock. I cut off the frame so I had parts of the snowflakes. Making sure all the elements would fit I glued the sentiment and snowflakes in place. I also added a couple of stars with a white gelly roll pen.
IMG_20191127_213640

I placed the base and frame of the globe as well as the snowy hills. I then added the 2 darling penguins, colored with Copics, and lots of sequins, gems and chunky glitter.
IMG_20191127_213640

The frame of the globe I cut 6-7 times and layered them ending with a layer of acetate and one cut from silver glitter cardstock and placed over the globe. So pretty! I then added the stand of the globe, also Copic colored, popped up with craft foam.

IMG_20191127_213640

So there you have my holiday shaker. I appreciate you stopping by and would love if you would leave me a comment.

Mouse warming
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572790422814E12

Warning! These mischievous mice are turning this cozy relaxing by the fireplace into a mouse warming party!
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I die cut all the pieces from white cardstock, except for the stockings that were cut from Memory Box patterned paper. The mice were colored with Copics and the rest were colored with Distress regular and oxide inks.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I marked out where I wanted the fireplace and inked up the background with oxide ink. I extended the color from the fireplace to most of the background.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I popped up the fireplace and as you can see the mice are hanggliding in the Christmas stockings.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

To prevent the watchful corgis to chase them away, a couple of mice have tied their tails together.
Watermark1.572790422814E12

I hope you like my inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today. Have a hapy crafty day!

So Very Thankful
by Dana Kirby

SavingPNG-5

Hi Friends! It is Dana here today sharing a fun Fall card with you all that uses the Gorgeous Leafy Background die. I am in love with this die, and the possibilities are endless. Let's get started, shall we?

I started my card by die cutting the Leafy Background from white cardstock two times. On my first pass through my die cutting machine I applied as little pressure as possible to try and keep as many pieces (leaves) as I could to stay inside the die. I then added strips of scotch tape to the back of this first die cut to help hold all of the little pieces inside the die. I used my Copic markers to color all of the leaves in fall colors. I didn't worry about staying in the lines because I knew my edges would be covered, you also want to make sure you go over the edges a little so that there is not any white showing. Next, I ran the Leafy Background die through my die cutting machine a second time to get a clean cut. 

SavingPNG-4

Next, I used a liquid glue to attach the white Leafy Background die cut over my colored leaves. I love how the leaves look like they are inlaid without having to do all of the work. By adding the tape behind my colored leaves I knew they were not going to fall out when I attached the two die cuts together. Once I had my square finished I cut it in half so I could use it on the top and bottom of my card design.

SavingPNG-6

For my sentiment, I used the Autumn Leaves sentiment set. I stamped my sentiment and the little leaves with VersaMark ink and heat set gold embossing powder onto my cardstock. I then attached my Leafy Background to the top and bottom of my card panel. To finish my card I attached my card panel to a top folding A2 card base and tied some twine under my sentiment.

SavingPNG-3

Thanks for joining me today. I hope I inspired you to try this fun and easy technique. 

Enjoy your day!

Holiday blog blitz: Spinner santa
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.572440796767E12

Hello everyone! Have you started your Christmas card collection? The Christmas Blog Blitz is in full swing and I've got some fun inspiration for you, plus a chance to win the cute Whittle Santa face die. Read all the way to the end for info.

Watermark1.572440796767E12

Since this santa die is symmetrical I imediately thought to make a spinner card. So i die cut the santa twice and colored it with Copics. The 4 die cut pieces are easy to assemble.
Watermark1.572440796767E12

I used my adhesive runner on the back of one santa and made sure the silver thread was possitioned in the middle. I then put glue on the back of the other and attached them back to back.

IMG_20191030_141235

The gorgeous patterned paper is from Memory Box and I die cut a circle that fits the santa. I then aligned with the card base to insure the holes would match.
IMG_20191030_141235

With my adhesive runner I then made sure the silver thread and santa was secured in the middle of the hole on the card base.
IMG_20191030_141235

Then I placed the patterned paper over the base and finished off with a frame cut from silver glitter cardstock. I also used another Memory Box paper for the inside of the card as a backer for the santa.
IMG_20191030_141235

From the same dottet paper I cut the shadow of the Holiday Joy, and the word itself was cut from the same silver glitter cardstock.

Watermark1.572440884597E12

Now all you have to do is turn the little santa, close the card and put it in the envolope and you'll be sure to bring a happy smile to the face of someone special.

Like I said, you could be the lucky winner of the Whittle Santa Face die. Follow these instructions.

Fall blooms
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.571751167561E12

Hi Poppy fans! Today I'm showing you this fall-inspired card loaded with warm, bold colors. It's a walk through a forest this time of year all in a card.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I lightly stamped the Peony Bouquet stamp, and left the stamp in my stamping tool for later use. I then colored it with Copics. After coloring the image, I placed it back in my stamping tool, stamped with embossing ink, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set it.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

For the background I used a panel of watercolor cardstock and ink smooshed matching colors of Distress and Distress oxide inks. I also flicked on some drops of water - yes, water - with a paint brush, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set it.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I then die cut a couple of Christmas greens all from green cardstock.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

With an ink dauber I inked the edges bringing a little life to the greens.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

After fuzzy cutting the bouquet I colored the edge with a dark grey Copic marker to make it stand out more.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I used the same marker to color match my cardstock for the sentiment, which is also gold heat embossed.
Watermark1.571751167561E12

I popped up the bouquet and attached the greens under it. Finishing touch was adding red and gold Nuvo drops to all the berries.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope I have inspired you to create your own fall-inspired card. Have a great day!
