Whittle Friendly Snowman

Hello everyone! Sue here with a card I featured during the Poppystamps Instagram Hop we had on October 15th. If you missed it, start the hop here.

I started by adhering the Watercolor Forest Greenery Washi Tape onto white cardstock and cut out an oval shape from it.

I then die cut the Diamond Snowflake Oval Frame from blue glitter cardstock and adhered the washi piece behind it. This was attached to the card base.

I die cut the body and head of the Whittle Friendly Snowman from White Woodgrain paper (it adds texture), his eyes, nose and hat from white cardstock and his scarf from plaid cardstock. Using Copics I coloured in the hat, nose and eyes.

I assembled the snowman and popped it up with foam squares. Love how jaunty he looks in his plaid scarf and top hat!

I felt there wasn’t an ideal spot for a sentiment on the card front so I put it on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Another way to use the Snowflake Corner Frame Die
by Sphoorti

AE04FC58-C6AA-44C0-B919-9247DE2EA314

Hello there! Sphoorti again. Back with another way to use the Snowflake Corner Die. I wasn't lying when I said this was my favorite die from this release! And like my last post for Poppystamps, I have a bunch of dos and don'ts again :) Hope you find them helpful!

I started off by die cutting some glitter cardstock from the Majestic Hues Glitter Pad using the Snowflake Corner Frame die. Since the inside of the paper isn't colored, you'll see the whites when you view the frame at an angle, like so:

76C69CD6-7728-45F5-AE07-A24A1DD6B18A

If this doesn't bother you, you're good (and lucky!). I knew I'd sleep better if I ran a matching color marker (I just used a black sharpie here) along the sides to cover up the whites, so I did.

I put adhesive on the back of the frame and took some acetate from leftover packaging and applied it to the entire frame. Then I cut some slivers of scotch foam tape and put them along the outside perimeter to form a well. Then I used poured some Diamond Dust (it's that glittery / sparkly stuff you see in the image below) into the well.

E793600A-343A-401A-A32F-2AE1AEFAF3E0

I peeled off the backing of the foam tape and put another layer of acetate to seal off the contents. I'm not sure if you can tell from this picture, but there's a layer of acetate on the back too.

C847CF0C-9AE5-47DE-B62A-797DCA8B276C

Then I took a card base (11" x 4.25") and scored it down the middle to make it a top-folding 5.5" x 4.25" card. I estimated where I wanted the sentiment to be (I actually wanted it to be behind the shaker panel because I wanted the "snow" to cover it up when we shake it, and then reveal the message when the contents fall to the bottom). I glued the sentiment that I die cut from the Small Freestyle Merry Christmas craft die from this release (absolutely love that die too!) out of some silver mirror cardstock, and then glued the shaker panel on top. And this is what I ended up with:

A

The best part is that when the card is shaken, the jiggly bits flow over the sentiment and don't get stuck on the nooks and crannies of the die cuts because of the extra acetate layer we have in the back of the shaker well. Not sure why, but this made me really happy!

Anyway, at this point, I realized 2 things - 1. I forgot to add splatter and felt that the card looked too clean and simple. 2. I noticed that I glued the shaker panel on crooked. <facepalm> I tell ya - "I'm sure I'll get it straight" is one of the biggest lies I tell myself when I'm gluing stuff to my cards. So, to cover up the boo-boo, I used one of the Scalloped Stitch Frames craft dies and took the outermost scalloped frame and tilted it a bit and glued it to the card base to draw attention away from the crookedness of the shaker panel (and also add some interest to the otherwise plain background). I trimmed the excess off and the result was this:

EDD1DB5B-C1C4-4E74-A355-855287328869

And when it's shaken:

A2A2899B-646D-45FC-B6DA-DA1EC33A5C32

What do you think? Please let me know in the comments below if you liked it before or after the scalloped frame. I'd love to know your thoughts!

As promised, here are my "Don't Dos" and "Do-this-insteads".

  1. Don't try to be a hero when you're trying to align something in a proper way. Use the T-square ruler. :)
  2. Don't use acetate from leftover packaging. If you observe closely, you'll see some waves in the acetate. If you're not a big fan of that, I'd recommend using proper acetate sheets that are thicker and more sturdy and don't form waves.
  3. Don't peel off the adhesive on the foam tape before pouring in the shaker innards. This stuff is staticky, so if you try to pour it in after the adhesive is peeled off, a whole lot of it is gonna get stuck to the adhesive and it'll be hard to seal off the well properly. Ask me how I know. 
  4. Don't be lazy like me... :) Run your anti-static powder bag / tool along the inner perimeter of the frame after you put the foam tape (but before you put in the shaker bits). This will prevent them from sticking to the foam tape. I couldn't find mine (rather, I was too lazy to look for it) so I took the shortcut, and if you observe closely, you'll see some diamond dust stuck along the inner perimeter (even when the card is standing upright).

Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? Please do share! Thank you so much for sticking with me through the end of my post, hope you found it helpful and/or inspiring.

Snowflake Shaker Card
by Sue McRae

20211008_141649c

Happy Tuesday crafters! Sue here with my first Christmas card of the season using products from the new Holiday 2021 release. There’s lots of amazing dies, stamps, paper and embellishments available for your holiday cards. Check them out here.

20211008_141956c

I created a shaker card using the Snowflake Corner Frame die cut from gorgeous black glitter cardstock that has flecks of blue and purple in it. It is so sparkly in person, the camera doesn’t capture all its shimmery goodness. You must run out and buy this paper pad along with the two other ones in this release. They are so pretty!

20211006_160537c

I created an inky background for the frame with purple Distress Oxide Inks.

20211006_161720c

Then splattered the background with inks and paint.

20211008_141659c

I added white, silver and iridescent shaker bits to keep it light.

20211008_141729c

I mounted the frame onto a white card base that I embossed with the Stunning Mandala 3D Embossing Folder. The frame hides a good portion of the design but I love all the texture and detail that you can see peeking out around the edges.

20211008_141713c

I debated whether or not to add a sentiment and decided to go with a small one tucked in the corner. I used a leftover piece from the inked background for this.

20211008_141516c

To add a bit more glam and glitz I added Fairy Gemstones and Jewels to the snowflake centres.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Let me know if you’ve started making your Christmas cards yet.

Have a great week!
