Hello Sunshine

Poppystamps 3.30.22.1

Hello crafty friends, hope you are all enjoying your week. 

Today's card share is magical theme card  using our popular Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit and the new Colorful Life stamps set.  I just love the unicorn and rainbow dies in this set. These two dies combined with the coordinating sentiments from the Colorful Life stamps make awesome magical themed cards. 

Poppystamps 3.30.22.2

Although the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit comes with its own sentiment stamp, I think the new Colorful Life stamp set has good sentiments to coordinate with kit.

Poppystamps 3.30.22.3

This card comes together very easily. I simply die cut all of the elements of the unicorn and rainbow from white cardstock.  Then with my copic markers I colored in the unicorn. Next, I die cut the wings and the horn of the unicorn from some gold cardstock scraps and adhered it to the unicorn with liquid glue for added interest.

I used my distress oxide inks in peacock feathers, mustard seed, twisted citron, spun sugar, wild honey and picked raspberry to color each of the rays on the rainbow.  To color the rays I used the direct to paper method and swiped each ink pad onto the white cardstock. 

Poppystamps 3.30.22.4

Lastly I die cut the stars from some yellow cardstock scraps and stamped the sentiment in versafine onxy black ink.  The card front panel is popped up on foam tape for added dimension and interest. 

I hope you liked today's card project and found inspiration. I know many of the design team members have been making unicorn cards lately, so hopefully this design provides you with another way to use the kit. 

Until next time....Happy Crafting!

More ways to use the Flower Field Frame craft die

Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

Sphoorti again! I have two other cards that I made with the Flower Field Frame Craft Die and I wanted to share them with you guys.

 

Card # 1:

 

75D695F7-4205-4230-9239-5F3D0D9960FD

 

This one was the easier version. I started by taking a 5.5 x 4.25" panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock and ink blended using some distress inks - Candied Apple, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet.I took the Perfect Pearl powders in silver and gold and splattered drops all over it for some sparkle and sheen.

 

Next, I took a top folding landscape card that measures 5.5" x 4.25". I scored it along the x-axis (horizontally) halfway down from the top of the card. I took 2 sentiment stamps, one that says "You're amazing" from the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit, and another that says "Thank you for every-fin" from the Whittle Sealife Sentiments clear stamp set. I did what I liked to call a "stamputation". I cut the sentiment so that I'd have a piece just with the "Thank you" portion. I could have masked it off, but I don't think I'll use this full sentiment that often anyway. This way I can reuse the "Thank you" part without having to mask it in the future.

 

Then, I took the Flower Field Frame Craft Die and cut out a layer of Neenah Solar White 110 pound cardstock. I took my big mama roll of 3M Foam Tape and cut up tiny pieces of it and put them on the back of the frame. I must be out of my dimension loving mind because I ended up with this:

And I still feel bad because I missed a few spots! Anyway, you might be wondering why I chose to take the time to cut up so many slivers of foam tape instead of just taking multiple die cuts and stacking them together. Well, I did that too! And I used that version for Card # 2. But for this card, I chose the foam tape option because you'll see that when you use foam tape versus stacking them on top of each other, the shadow effect is more prominent. Don't get me wrong, I like both effects it's just what effect I'm going for at the time.

 

Please do compare the two pictures of the completed cards and let me know if you see it, or if it's just me. Here's a picture of the two versions before I assembled the cards.

Now for the best part - assembly! I removed foam take backers off and stuck the frame down over the blended rainbow of colors with the sentiment at the center. I then took a number of pearls in various sizes and adhered them to the centers of the flowers. I foam mounted this card panel on a top folding 4.25 x 5.5" card base et viola!

Card # 2

 

C63459AD-2E30-4680-9533-ED30D458AED0

 

This one was even more time consuming than the first, if you can believe it! Die-cutting 6 - 7 layers of the Flower Field Frame and gluing them together is no easy feat! But totally worth it!

 

46632FAE-0B55-44C0-9781-DF283FF61195

 

I ink blended the background the same way I did for the first car, and used the same perfect pearl mixture to splatter some shine all over the card. 

 

Then, I stacked the die cuts and glued them together with liquid glue. The inner perimeter doesn't have any gaps, so I figured - why not make it a shaker? So, I took a piece of acetate roughly the same size as the outer perimeter and cut it up. Once I layered the acetate on top of the stacked set of die cuts, I used another die cut to cover it up the outline of the acetate. I used the same stamps that I used for Card # 1 on this card too. I just made the mistake of forgetting to stamp the acetate before layering it. Lesson learned. I stamped it anyway and where I couldn't get a good impression, I used a permanent marker to fill in the gaps. Can you tell?

 

D622D49E-BB5B-4330-A427-9FE464B26AFD

 

I filled the innards with a mixture of confetti, sequins and pearls. I glued some of the innards to the back of the card as well so that even when the card is upright, there are still some shaker bits scattered throughout the top. One thing I wish I did differently was flip the pearls right side up before sealing the shaker. The shaker well isn't deep enough to allow the pearls to flip back and forth, so the ones that were facing down when I sealed the shaker are going to remain that way forever.

Then, I adhered my favorite clear fairy drops at the centers of all the flowers. I mounted this panel on a top folding 5.5 x 4.25 card base and called it done.

Easy Easel Card with the Flower Field Frame craft die
by Sphoorti

Hello Poppy Peeps!

 

Sphoorti here, back with a new card, this one using the Flower Field Frame Craft Die from the February 2022 release. Isn't it fun? It's an easel card, and it's so easy to make!

 

I started with cutting out a bunch of the frames. Since the frame is delicate when you cut just one layer (even if it's with 110 pound cardstock), you'll need more layers to make it sturdy like a chipboard so that it stands upright and doesn't flop over. I think I have 4-5 layers in my frame. I used Neenah Solar White 110 pound and I glued them together with some liquid glue.

Next, I took a top folding landscape card that measures 5.5" x 4.25". I scored it along the x-axis (horizontally) halfway down from the top of the card. I took 2 sentiment stamps, one that says "You're amazing" from the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit, and another that says "Thank you for every-fin" from the Whittle Sealife Sentiments clear stamp set. I did what I liked to call a "stamputation". I cut the sentiment so that I'd have a piece just with the "Thank you" portion. I could have masked it off, but I don't think I'll use this full sentiment that often anyway. This way I can reuse the "Thank you" part without having to mask it in the future.

 

I stamped the two sentiments - one above, and one below the score line so that one of them always shows when the easel is upright, and the other shows when it's not. I couldn't get the card to lay completely flat when I was taking pictures, but it definitely completely folds flat and fits in a standard A2 sized envelope.

 

A834A7F8-E502-4B2E-9221-4F98CBCF9481

 

Then, I took the bottom half of the chipboard Flower Field frame that I made in step 1, and applied glue to just the bottom half, and adhered it to the front panel of the card below the score line. And that's actually it! That's what does the easel effect!

 

All I needed to do to complete the easel function is create a stopper so that the easel has something to lean on or stop against. I cut up some thin slivers (maybe 1/8" in width) with regular white cardstock and stacked them up. I used some silver foil cardstock for the top layer. Then, I opened the card up and adhered the strip chipboard horizontally.

Last (and probably the most fun step for me!) was the pearls! I did not have colorful pearls, I only had white ones. So, I took some of my copic markers and colored the white pearls. I did a random placement of different sized pearls and adhered them to the centers of all the flowers.

 

Here's a tip I used to color the pearls (it's impossible to color them if they're not adhered to something). So, I took a wide piece of washi tape and stuck the pearls on the washi so that they don't move, and then I colored them with copics. Easy-peasy! Here are two pictures that show that:

And the end result? A fully functional, clean and simple, rainbow-y easel card!

Hello Rainbow Card
by Janet Katz

PS Rainbow Hello1
 
Hello, indeed! There is still time to enter our monthly challenge and win a $20 gift card from the Poppystamps store. The theme is pretty papers and that includes patterned paper, vellum, glitter cardstock or even a brushed metallic paper like I've used on today's card. You can even stamp your own background and make it a paper to use in our challenge. Let's see what you've got.
 
I love the new Poppystamp Freestyle word dies. They're the perfect size and weight for any size card and they all come with a shadow background die. I started by picking out 11 different cardstock colors to make into a rainbow. I decided to raid years of scraps to get just what I was looking for.
 
Hello Rainbow card3
 
I die cut the Freestyle Hello shadow 11 times for the image I was going for. For the card front, I wanted a solid colored background, but still something more unique than flat cardstock. I chose a brushed metal-looking cardstock from my stash, and used the Memory Box Waves 3D embossing folder to give it plenty of dimension. Next, I glued down each shadow die cut, in rainbow order from the top of the card to the center. I let the red one hang off the top and trimmed it to give the sense of a never-ending rainbow. I had to carefully plan out how much of each would show and then glue one on top of the other in just the right place. I eyeballed it, but used a ruler to keep the shadows straight on the left side. Finally, I adhered my white Hello on the last shadow. I used a variety of rhinestones and Fairy Jewels to give the card front some sparkle.
 
Hello Rainbow card2
 
Now, it is your turn to pull out some fun paper (or make your own), and a Poppystamps die or stamp and show us what you come up with. You might just win that $20 gift card.

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).

 

BF57FC6D-0080-4494-999F-CCD5ECD844EA

 

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?

 

25608A36-6F37-421E-9F43-3487A9C6611B

 

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!
