Looking Fabulous!

Hi crafty friends! I'm sharing a cute card featuring some of the newest products in the Poppystamps shop - Whittle Happy Unicorn and the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit! The kit is awesome because it comes with several coordinating dies and a stamp set all in one! If you are wondering what the difference between the unicorns are - the Whittle Happy Unicorn is much larger than the unicorns in the kit. Head over to the shop for more details.

To create my card, I started by die cutting several clouds using the Whittle Cloud Border die from white cardstock and vellum. On each cloud, I ink blended dye ink to add some color. On the vellum clouds, I blended light blue ink and made sure the vellum was completely dry before continuing. Ink can sometimes sit on top of vellum causing smearing so either wait for it to dry completely or rub off the excess ink with a dry cloth. I also added glitter brush marker to the border of each cloud because you can't have unicorns without sparkle. I adhered the clouds to an A2-sized panel that I lightly ink blended with yellow dye ink for a soft glow.

Next, I die cut the pieces of the Whittle Happy Unicorn and the small clouds from the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit. I colored the pieces of the unicorn with copic markers and again, added sparkle to various parts like the wing and horn. Similar to the vellum clouds, I ink blended light blue ink to the clouds. I popped up the unicorn with foam tape for dimension.

I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set included in the unicorn kit in black ink. Finally, I added several clear Fairy Drops all over the panel. I think it's just the cutest, whimsical unicorn card! Thanks for stopping by today!

Seasons Change

Fallcard1name

Happy fall, everyone! Cooler weather is just beginning to creep into central Texas and I’m here for it. For my first project as a new design team member, I wanted to design a slimline card, which typically measures 3.5” x 8.5” when folded. I started with the lovely Soaring Tree Frame cut from kraft cardstock. 

I used gold, burgundy, and rust cardstock with the Floral Cluster die, cutting off the tiny leaves on the edges and adhering them to the tree. Next, I die cut the adorable Pile of Pumpkins (I adore pumpkins!) from some deep orange cardstock.

I knew I wanted a snowy background and the Snowspeckle Washi Tape worked perfectly. I’d never worked with washi tape this wide, and found it easiest to adhere the leading edge of the tape to my plastic table top and then unroll it. This way I could measure what I wanted and get a smooth application by just putting my cardstock onto the sticky side.

I used a medium blue cardstock and cut the washi-covered piece down to just fit behind the tree. I used the same blue for the card base. I used a plain circle die to create the green hill, and then I swiped Versamark ink on the tops of pumpkins, the hill, and in one area of the tree. I heat embossed with white embossing powder to give it the look of snow. I went over a few more branches with a white gel pen.

I adhered all these pieces together along with the washi-covered background, and then used my same fall-colored cardstock to die cut Orchard Leaves. I cut apart these to make a nice variety of leaves for the card front. I used foam adhesive tape to pop up the snowy scene and added a computer printed sentiment. I hope you enjoyed this card, and I hope the beauty and cooler temperatures of fall are waiting just outside your front door.

All the Happiness
by Sue McRae

20210911_153635c

Happy Monday everyone! Sue here with some stamping today! I feel like I don’t do as much stamping as I used to. It seems to be all about the die cutting.

20210911_153710c

I inked up a floral image from the All the Happiness stamp set with embossing ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder.

20210911_153726c

To add colour to the image I used a small blending brush and a variety of dye inks. No need to stay within the lines for this technique. By inking up the image this way you can get the job done quickly. The image was die cut with the matching die.

20210911_153659c

I die cut the Double Scallop Oval from White Woodgrain Paper and temporarily positioned it on the card front so I could figure out where to stamp the sentiment. I used foam tape to adhere the oval frame to the light gray card base.

I attached the floral piece with thinner foam tape to the frame and added a variety of Fairy Jewels for a little bling!

Thanks so much for joining me today on the blog and I wish you a great week!

Sweet Friend Shaker Card
by Sue McRae

20210828_165547c

Hello crafty friends! I’m finishing off my summer posts with this sweet ice cream shaker card. It’s still really hot where I live and am looking forward to the cooler fall temps!

20210828_120849c

This card is a mini slimline, my first time making one! Using the Whittle Ice Cream Cone, I die cut it five times from white card stock.

20210828_125925c

I took the cones and inked them up with Distress Ink. Here’s a little tip for you. To prevent your ink pads or die cuts from sliding around when you’re trying to ink blend, lay them on a Silpat or silicone baking mat. The texture of this mat grabs the ink pads and die cuts and keeps them in place. No more inky fingers! They are inexpensive at Amazon.

They also come in this style. Works the same way.

For the background of the ice cream I inked up a piece of white card stock with Distress Inks and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer and texture.

20210828_152217c

I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the cones and added foam tape. I used clear seed beads for my shaker bits then attached the rainbow inked panel on top.

20210828_155058c

For the sparkly lines on the card front, I sprinkled clear iridescent glitter over two lines of double sided tape and burnished it in with my fingers.

20210828_165752c

The sentiment was created with the Poetic Uppercase Alphabet. These letters are a great size for card fronts and the die cuts several of each letter at once. It’s a great way to customize your cards and it also comes in lowercase.

20210828_165805c

I attached my panel to a light grey card base and it’s all done!

20210828_170005-c2

This card could be used as a birthday card, missing you or just to say hello.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a wonderful week!

Sending Fall Hugs
by Tiffany Pryce

20210816_235923

Hey Poppy friends! Anyone else in the mood for fall? I know, I know, we shouldn't rush the seasons, but I love fall. It is my favorite for so many reasons - cool weather, cozy sweaters, pumpkin everything, apple season, Halloween, my birthday, Thanksgiving, and so much more. Here's a card I made inspired by the beauty of changing leaves.

To start, I ink blended two panels with a variety of autumn inspired dye inks from Catherine Pooler. I blended one of the two panels a little lighter than the other. Since the inks are water reactive, I splattered both panels with water for a little texture. One panel was used as the background, and the other was used for my leaf silhouettes and die cuts.

20210816_153816

I tried a new (to me) technique with my Poppystamps products where made a stencil with one of the Whittle dies. I covered a piece of scrap paper with masking tape and die cut the Whittle Oak Leaf multiple times to create a pseudo stencil. With the DIY stencil, I blended the same ink colors randomly on half of one ink blended panel, and then trimmed the panel in half. From the trimmed half of the panel, I die cut several leaves as normal. I added additional ink on the die cuts to deepen the colors.

To further differentiate the background, I dry embossed the Lattice Plate die for texture. And I popped up the leaves with foam tape for dimension. For a little sparkle, I added Fairy Jewels in coordinating colors.

20210816_235929
For the final touch, I heat embossed a sentiment from Whittle Everyday in white embossing powder. I ink blended the sentiment strip with the same yellow and orange inks that I used in the background.

Hope you enjoyed this fall inspired card and I hope you try something new in your next make. See you next time!
