Whittle Mouse Thank You
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6156-wm

Hello Everyone!

Thanks so much for joining us today! Today I am sharing a sweet little Thank You card I put together with the cute little Whittle Mouse and the Dandelion Stem! Take a look!

IMG_6151-wm

I started out by creating a card panel background with a few shades of blue and green Distress Oxide Inks sponged onto cardstock and splashed with water from a paintbrush. Then I cut a white Dandelion Stem, a white Simple Thank You, and two of the Whittle Mouse, one grey and one white. To add a pink nose, I just glued a tiny piece of pink paper to the back, then glued the mice and the Dandelion Stem onto my dry panel, framed with the Pointed Rectangle Frame.

I love the sweet, simple message and the colorful imagery. It's perfect for a little note to a special friend too!

We're thrilled you could drop by today and take a peek at the Whittle Mouse Thank You!

Sympathy Card
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1211 2

Hello! Marybeth here today with a feminine sympathy card, using :Poppystamps clear stamps and dies. 

I tried not to make it too busy  but wanted to add more than just the background  . 

IMG_1184

I stamped the background with: Flower Garden and used : Tim Holtz distressed oxide inks. First I stamped lightly with the ink pad then blended the inks so it would not have any harsh lines.

IMG_1185

I kept doing it till I was happy with the results. I am using the MISTI Stamping tool.

Download-2

The sentiment comes with the background  stamp set: Flower Garden, all linked below.

IMG_1186

I die cute the Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame a few times so I would have a few flowers to put around the :Whittle Hearts.

I randomly cut them apart then sanded with a sanding block to smooth the edges, then tucked them around the heart.

Blooming Garden Challenge Reminder
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6096-wm

Hello Friends!

We are so glad you could stop by today, and take a look at this fun card I created for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! 

IMG_6089-wm

I have a little kitty who LOVES to help me with everything I do, especially with my tiny garden that I have out on our apartment lanai. My kitty and my small space garden inspired me to create this card for our April Challenge. These "Whittle" animals that all came out this year are some of my very favorites, and today's Whittle Cat is sweetly checking out the Folk Watering Can filled with tiny flowers from the Spring Pot Shelves.

IMG_6084-wm

To create this card, I started with some watercolor paper and sponged on Distress Oxide inks in shades of blues and greens, gently giving them a soft blend to look like an outdoor horizon. Then I splattered the paper with water and a paintbrush, which gives the inks these beautiful layers of color. Once the paper was completely dry, I then cut out the Pointed Rectangle Frame and the other cuts, and estimated where I wanted the horizon line to appear, then cut it out and adhered it to my white frame.

IMG_6086-wm

I adhered that to my card base, then added all my die cuts, arranging the flowers and leaves from the Spring Pot Shelves into the Folk Watering Can, and adding the Stitched Fluttering Butterflies and a few sequins. It's the perfect design for my small space inspired Blooming Garden card!

Now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you will create for our April Challenge, Blooming Garden! Just use at least one Poppystamps die or stamp, then link up your creation to our  current challenge page on the right! What are you growing in your garden?

Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0022 2

Greetings and Happy Spring to all! I have a trio of Spring/Easter cards for you today, with background designer paper I made with Poppystamps new Picnic Plaid. 

DSC_0002

Once I got this generously sized plaid stamp into my Misti, it was hard to stop! As you can see, I used pastels and knew I wanted to create Easter cards.

DSC_0005

I used 2 main dies, coloring only one main image and mixing colors with my Distress Oxides.

DSC_0019 2

My tip for the day: use Q-tips for small spaces, and mix colors for a marbled look. It works great! Notice how I added pink to the bunny's cheeks and ears.

Easy breezy to get a soft pastel pink just where you want it with a Q-tip.

3 cards, easily done with a fun plaid stamp, and plenty of papers left over to do more!

Have a great weekend!

Sprinkled With Love
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_20-02-2019_09-57-13-2

If you know someone who likes the occasional sweet treat, perhaps this quick and easy make is for you!

Here's a quick 'how to' guide...

FullSizeRender

Start by creating the background using the smaller of the two dies in the Deco Victor Square set.

You'll be using the die cut as a stencil.  I've used temporary spray adhesive to hold my dies in place whilst I add the Distress Oxide ink.

As you can see, I've also added water splashes and dried them off before removing the die cuts.

FullSizeRender 2

Next, cut out the dies you will need and glue them together.

I've chosen the 'Sprinkled With Love' sentiment from the cute Donut What I'd Do set, stamped it on Heat Resistant acetate and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  

(Don't forget to use your anti static pad or it's equivalent first).

As my Heat Resistant acetate is quite flimsy I decided that a second layer from scrap packaging was needed.  Here's a photo that shows what that looks like...

_DSC9950-2

Before gluing everything into position the acetate needs to be cut to size...  which means folding and securing one end over the donuts.

Snapseed

As you can see, I've used a small staple to attach the two layers, then secured it in place with a piece of red liner tape.

I've also cut out an extra donut shape from scrap packaging, trimmed it down and attached that as shown to offset the height of the staple. 

The donut hole came in handy, too!  I added an extra layer after this photo was taken and a small piece of red liner tape right along the bottom edge of the cupcake.

_DSC9952-Edit-2

Here's the finished card again...  with the length of the acetate strip adjusted.  That small piece of red liner tape under the Whittle Cupcake stops it from escaping!

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my fun make!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Thank You Card Set
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0005_wm

February brings the hope of Spring, and I'm here today with some ideas for easy, fun stamping.

DSC_0026

I love doing cards in multiples, especially for giving gifts. A set of thank you cards (A1 size) is the perfect appreciation to give a friend. Or a neighbor who fed the cats while you were away?

DSC_0014

I selected one of my favorite Poppy stamp sets, Little Kindnesses, and a Poppy tag die, marking off the die, lightly with a pencil. Here's where the fun starts. Using my Misti, each card is placed and stamped one after another, in an assembly line. 

DSC_0013

Here's a look at all the elements before the card is assembled. Each tag is inked a different color, 6 total.

DSC_0015

I placed my tag in the Misti for placement of the bee trail as well.

DSC_0018 2

The large die cut flower is copic colored, coordinated with the tag, and adhered to the tag. If you look closely, you can see I glued only the center of the flower so I could curl up the petals slightly. Finishing touches include the script die cut and some Nuvo drops.

DSC_0019

Don't forget the envelopes! So easy to decorate them with the Misti too!

DSC_0032

Packaged together with a ribbon, a sweet way to say, 'thank you'. And great therapy for a cold winter's afternoon. How nice to have several of these sets on hand, ready to go.

DSC_0025

I hope this post today brought you a bit of Spring sunshine. And I hope you're feeling crafty, no matter the temp outside!
