Happy Easter
by Tiffany Pryce Russom

Hey friends! Tiffany here with some Easter inspiration for you. I pulled out a bunch of supplies for this cute scene so let's dive in!


First, I started on the card base and background. I trimmed a piece of coral, foil cardstock from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad to an A2 size and added it to an A2 card base. I die cut the Double Diamond Lattice Plate from white cardstock and adhered it on top with liquid glue.


Next, I worked on die cutting all of my card front pieces. I die cut the Spring Bunnies from white cardstock and lightly ink blended brown ink on the edges. I also added some spots with a brown copic marker. For the ground, I used the leaf and grass die from the Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set. I die cut both from two different green patterned papers from the Cottage Stripes and Dots Pad. I used some green copics and ink blended some green ink at the bottom for dimension. Lastly, I die cut several Farm Fresh Eggs from patterned paper from the Spring Plaid paper pad. The pattern is subtle, but the colors pick up the coral in the background. I adhered everything together with liquid glue and popped up the bunnies with foam tape.


For the sentiment, I die cut the word happy from the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I die cut two layers from white cardstock and the top layer from glitter cardstock from the Delicate Pastel Glitter pad. Using the same green patterned paper from the Cottage Stripes and Dots pad, I die cut the word Easter from the Splendid Happy Easter die. I embellished the card with several clear fairy drops around the panel.


Hope you're inspired to pull out some supplies and create your own scene! Please tag Poppystamps if you create a card inspired by this card. Have a great day!

St. Patrick's Day Card with Heart
by Janet Katz

PS St. Patrick's Day card

This St. Patrick's Day card uses five different types of specialty paper and cardstock to fit with our challenge theme of Pretty Papers. I started by creating a shamrock. I used the Whittle Hearts die set to cut three large hearts from a sheet of Memory Box Lush Green 6x6 paper pad. Then I used the smaller heart in that set to cut three hearts from the Memory Box Festive 6x6 glitter pad.

I needed a stem, next. I could have hand cut this, but I thought of a way to get a nice curved stem. I nested two dies from the Basic Ovals die set and taped them as shown. I ran it through my machine and I had a funky oval which I cut to get the stem.

Next, I started on my background. I used the largest scalloped die in the Double Scalloped Stitched Frames die set to cut a pale blue pearly piece from the Memory Box Vintage Pastel Mirror 6x6 pad. Then I cut a piece of black and white striped paper, a piece of vellum, and a piece of pale blue-and-white, polka dotted paper. I layered these one on top of another inside the pearly blue frame. I realized I needed another piece of the striped paper to sit further down behind my shamrock so I cut that too, and hid the cut behind the vertical pieces of black and white that I used to frame my sentiment strip.

Following a card layout I saw on Pinterest, I put the computer-generated sentiment strip on the right side of the black-and-white matted frame. I glued everything in place on my cardfront. For the final touch, I added a threaded green button in the middle of the shamrock.
Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? If so, how do you celebrate?

Cabin Snowglobe with a twist!
by Sphoorti




So, it turns out that I'm not quite done with the winter, the snow, or the Cabin Snowglobe Die Set. When the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit craft die was release in January, I had an idea to use components of it with the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Die Set that was released in the 2021 Holiday Release. I was finally able to implement it!

Here's how I made it...

Do you guys remember my post from January: The Glitzy and Pastelly Rainbows? Well, I had a couple of glitzy rainbows left over that I saved, and so step 1 = complete!

Then, I took the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit craft die set and cut out the unicorn and his fabulous wings and hair and horn with silver cardstock, and his body with just plain white cardstock. I colored his nose and mouth area with a gray copic marker. I stacked a bunch of diecuts to give him some dimension and sturdiness. (Somehow I still managed to break his neck - not sure if you can tell from the pictures. Poor guy).




Anyway, after I was done putting him together, I cut out all the components of the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Die Set with white and silver cardstock. The globe portion at the top - I cut out from cardstock on which I applied double sided adhesive so that I could sprinkle the Diamond Dust for the sparkly goodness, because what's a unicorn without sparkle?




I put the glittery background all the way in the back and then layered the hills in the front, and foam mounted the rainbow. I used some stickles glitter along the hills for some added dimension. And then I put the unicorn dude at the forefront of it all. What do you guys think?




I felt like there was enough going on and did not want to add more. Do let me know how you feel about a card without a sentiment. Hope you still liked it!

Magical Day
by Jeanne Jachna

Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU1

Hi friends!   Today I'm sharing a magical card made with the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit.   This Kit is amazing because it's got the all the dies you need to create this scene card and lots of others.  I didn't even use all the dies that are included in the kit.... AND it also includes a stamp set with lots of cute sentiments!

I envisioned the cute flying unicorns perched on clouds and flying among the stars!  How magical is that? 

Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-How To 1

I started with a background of ombre Distress Oxide Ink, blending from the lightest to the darkest using three shades of ink.. Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and finally Blueprint Sketch.  Next I splattered the inky panel with water, some watered down Chipped Sapphire (just touch your ink pad to your glass or silicone craft mat, dip your paint brush in water and mix with the ink and spatter!), and finally some white ink  (I use Dr. Ph. Martins Bleed Proof White Ink).

I cut out my pieces and then lay them out on a piece of clear plastic the  size of my card base.   This helps me decide what image to put where before I commit and adhere it in place.  I also like that I can slip the inky panel underneath the clear plastic.. maybe blue isn't the best color?  where should I stamp my sentiment? etc.

The bottom of the design seemed like the perfect place for the sentiment.  I like to use Versafine Onyx Black ink because its great for details, and it's not water based. That means the ink will sit on top of the inky background and not soak into the paper.  This also means that it's going to stay wet longer, so make sure not to smear it!

I added lots of details to my unicorns including double cut manes (one from solid cardstock, one from glitter cardstock), colored cardstock muzzles and tails, and google eyes to help bring them to life.

I really love all the stitched details on the dies and I know this card is sure to make you smile!

Rainbow Wishes
by Sue McRae


It’s a shiny new week at Poppystamps and I’m here with a fun unicorn card using the new Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit. I think this kit would be a perfect gift for a child or unicorn loving crafter as it contains stamps and dies!


All the colourful parts of my card (the rainbow, sentiment and unicorn mane) are die cut pieces of alcohol ink yupo paper that I had in my stash. I’m always looking for ways to use up my smaller paper pieces.


I die cut the unicorn from white woodgrain paper for a little texture and the clouds are covered with white flock for a nice soft fuzzy feel. Felt would be a great alternative to the flock.


For a little sparkle and shine I used gold glitter paper behind the sentiment and for the unicorn horn and wings.


To add some interest to the background I took a tracing wheel (it’s a tool used in sewing) to add wavy dotted lines on my panel. The rainbow sentiment is white heat embossed on black cardstock and cut out by hand.


Thanks for stopping by the blog today and have a great week!
