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!

20220319_015229

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.

Challenge Reminder
by Jeanne Jachna

Grand Whittle Pig-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna

Thanks for stopping by!  Today I want to remind you to play along with our monthly challenge.  This month we want you to add some pretty papers to your design.  YES!  That could be pattern paper, but it could also be any kind of specialty paper and wow there are so many to choose from!  Just a few examples of specialty papers would be glitter, foil, flock, glossy, wood,  or how about a handmade alcohol or stamped background?

I'm A BIG fan of pattern papers.   I mean, who can resist picking up a pad of beautiful papers?  I can't!  I love to tear all the sheets out of the pad and start mixing and matching them.  I usually will arrange them by color - matching a floral with a stripe or dot.. it's total eye candy for me.

This card is made with the Memory Box Garden Folly 6" pad.  I started with the yellow and red plaid along the bottom of the card and focused on adding different yellow and red prints to the design.  If you're new to pattern papers it's overwhelming, but try to mix busy prints with solid (one color) prints.  Adding some solid cardstock helps break up patterns and using light or ledger paper helps create a focal point on your designs.

I used the Basic Ovals nested set to create a focal point for the cute Grand Whittle Pig.  I attached the little guy with adhesive foam tape to add dimension.  Now all that's left is embellishing the card.. adding a Grosgrain Bow die cut for "Some Pig" (any Charlotte's Web fans?).

The Potpourri Flowers die set doesn't come with foliage.. how to add some grass?    How about some Whittle Palm Tree fronds?  I love when I can stretch my dies and use them in different ways.  How about that Sunshine?  It's made with the Brilliant Rings circle die cuts in shades of yellow and orange stacked.

Playing along with the challenge is a great way to get ideas for different ways to use dies that you might already have.. and who knows?  You might just be our lucky winner of a $20 gift card from the shop!   I sure hope you'll join us!  We love to see what you make!

Challenge Reminder PSC#88: An Otterly Amazing Birthday
by Janet Katz

Otter card1

 

It's not too late to enter our monthly Poppystamps Challenge PSC#88. You KNOW you need some more birthday cards. Gather up some supplies and at least one Poppystamps product and make a card or something else. All types of projects are welcome, but please make sure to include at least one Poppystamps product. Read more details about this month's challenge on the blog.

My inspiration for the challenge was thinking of warmer weather. Oh, how I'd love to float in a pool with beautiful flowers all around. But winter has finally struck Texas, so I'll let this little otter do it for me. I started with this sweet whittle girl and put her on the Whittle Wave background. It was super simple to cut two wave backgrounds and snip the cuts in a darker blue and place them on top of sections of a lighter one. To give a more springtime feel, I added flowers from the Floral Cluster die (I use this thing ALL the time) and colored the center of the flowers with a white gel pen.

Next I wanted to add layers and frames and repeat the colors I had already used. I added little scraps of patterned paper as well as two kinds of frames. I used the same brown paper as the otter and cut the Whittle Wood Frame and used it as a layer. I cut the Double Scalloped Stitched Frame from white and used it on top of the same dark blue I used on the wave background. When you keep your color scheme to just a few colors and repeat those colors, you get a very cohesive-looking design - and it saves trips to your paper stash.

I added some tiny staples and some baker's twine and played with the paper "stack" until I liked it. I put it all onto a white card and added a sentiment that I computer printed. This card was a lot of fun to put together and use so many different dies. I'm certain I will use this "stacked" approach again.

Looking Fabulous!
by Tiffany Pryce

20211223_145753

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!

Snowglobe shaker
by Tiffany Pryce

20211207_112817-3

Hey Poppy peeps! Tiffany here popping in with some more inspiration for you. I think this Cabin Snowglobe die has been a favorite of the design team. It is so versatile and can be used in many ways. Use it as is, interchange the dies, use the dies on other projects - the combinations are endless. I decided to make my snowglobe interactive by turning it into a shaker card! Shakers always put a smile on my face and are perfect for snowy, winter scenes.

Putting this card together was pretty straightforward. I die cut all the pieces like the cabin and the trees from white or glitter cardstock. I used the circle die to cut into the base snowglobe die in order to make a shaker frame. I die cut two frames for stability and then added acetate with liquid glue. I used liquid glue because I did not have double sided tape that was thin enough. Behind the acetate, I added foam tape to ensure none of the shaker bits would fall out. I adhered the scene on top with double sided tape and popped the cabin up for dimension. For the snowglobe base, I die cut it from green cardstock and added some shading on the edges with dye ink.

Inside the shaker card, I lined it with pattern paper from the Madras Plaid Coral and Green paper pack. I used the negative die cut on top for a clear space to write my holiday message. I also stamped a sentiment from the Gilded Christmas Wishes stamp set. Finally, I added some holly leaves and berries to the bottom so help the easel stand upright more easily. Pro tip: Although I managed to forget this step, always glue some shaker pieces onto the background. This is so when the card is upright, there are still shaker pieces visible at the top when all the other pieces fall to the bottom.

What a fun design that was easy to put together! I know the recipient will love adding this card to her holiday decor. Until next time, happy crafting! As a bonus, check out two more versions that I made using the same supplies below.
