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.

Challenge Reminder: PSC#87 - Happy Holly Days!

Hello there! It's Sphoorti with a gentle reminder of this month's (and my first!) challenge - Happy Holly Days (PSC#87)! It's the most wonderful time of the year, and this theme has to do with all things associated with it, so transitive property dictates - this is the most wonderful challenge of the year!

Any card themed Winter / Christmas / Holidays works! Easy-peasy, and great because you probably have a bunch of cards already that you've just made to send out this Holiday season that you can enter into the challenge! Just make sure that you use at least one Poppystamps product, and enter your project on the challenge post blog for a chance to win! For more details about how this works, please see the original Challenge Post here.

First thing that comes to mind when I think of winter / December is snow (even though I live in a place where there's no precipitation - thanks, Southern California), and a warm fire in a cabin in the woods, hot chocolate in hand, cuddling with boyfriend and kitty.

The Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Die Set that was released by Poppystamps in the 2021 Holiday Release totally gave me those vibes, so that's what I used for the challenge.

I made 2 versions and I think I'll make a lot more when I get the opportunity because these looked amazing and were easy to put together! The first one I made was a monochromatic version where I only used white and silver cardstock for all the die cuts. I made a mistake on this one, actually - and it was because I couldn't see one of the dies (it was right in front of me!) It forms the circle part of the snow globe. So, I improvised and made it without it. (So, if you observe, you'll see there's no demarcation between the actual snow globe and the back of the card). I made sure I used it on the second one. Lesson learned! I cut out the base line (not sure what it's called, but it's the little silver sliver with the tiny lines), multiple times and used it on the inside of the card so that the easel feature of the card can work off of it. Here's a picture of it:

For the one which has the red cabin - I actually cut out the word "merry" multiple times from the Small Freestyle Merry Christmas craft die with white and silver cardstock and layered them to make it thick like a chipboard. Then, I adhered it to the inside of the card so that the easel can work off of that as a stopper. Here's a picture of that:

Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0032

Good Saturday Morning Friends! I have some bright holiday inspiration for you the weekend before Thanksgiving, and it's a Christmas Snowglobe!

DSC_0040_wm

While perusing Pinterest, I came across a color scheme I just loved! The designer (Wanda Guess) chose bright pastels, and the effect was stunning. I'm sharing those colors with you today. Aqua, baby pink and a touch of darker pink. 

DSC_0023

I die cut all the pieces for my Pop Up card and played with the placement of all the elements. You'll see I didn't use all the pieces.

DSC_0028_wm

The finished Pop Up Easel card fits nicely in an A2 sized envelope, when folded down.

DSC_0037

My inside message and a few of the leftover die cuts. Note the raised stop at the bottom that catches the pop up front of the card.

DSC_0031

And here's a closeup of the details, doubled sentiment and snowflake make those elements stand out. And, 'lighted' windows in the cabins.

I hope you're enjoying this most precious of seasons, and hope you give this color scheme a try. Making it a crafty weekend always makes it a happy one!

Gingerbread Snowglobe
by Janet Katz

Gingerbread2 with sig
How could I resist combining a snowglobe with a gingerbread house? The Cottage Globe dies married with the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel dies helped me create this sweet scene. I started with the cottage and cut it from 4 different colors of cardstocks: red, white glitter, honey-brown to represent gingerbread, and two from yellow. I trimmed the door off the honey-brown one. I cut another cottage from red paper and snipped off the door to use. I loved the idea of having a window in the door and was thrilled to see that I could put the red door upside down onto the cottage die and cut a window out of the door (yes, tweezers and reading glasses were critical for this).
IMG_2995
I went over the door with a clear glitter pen. I used the window inlays from my two yellow cottages and inset them into the honey-brown cottage and the red door. Before I added the frosted roof, I used a white gel pen to doodle on the cottage, making it look like icing. Once the cottage was complete, the rest was easier. I die cut the fence and the tree from the same honey-brown cardstock and used my white gel pen to add snow.  I cut two snow mounds from the snow die that came with the Cottage Globe die, one from white cardstock, the other from glitter cardstock.
 
I cut the two base pieces of the card from red and white cardstock. I cut the globe from pale blue cardstock and used a medium blue ink to just barely edge it with ink. I even glued down  a few pieces of snowflake-shaped glitter to add to the snowy feel. Now I wanted to add candy to the scene. Some shaker bits and tiny tree ornaments I picked up at the craft store really fit the bill. I played with the arrangement before I glued things down.
 
IMG_2971
I could have created the candy with paper and markers too. I glued down tiny peppermints onto the tree and I snipped the little hanger loops off the mini lollipops. Next I assembled everything onto the blue circle, starting with the tree, then adding the white snow, then the fence. Then I had to carefully glue down the lollipops. Next I used foam adhesive to adhere the glitter snow mound. I used liquid glue on the bottom of the cottage and foam adhesive on the top to get the dimension correct so it would sit level.
 
I next adhered the globe onto the white card base. I had die cut the snowglobe base from dark brown cardstock and the trim from a brushed gold cardstock. I glued these together and then only used liquid glue to adhere the base to the bottom of the glitter snow mound. I could have also put foam adhesive behind the base to attach it to the white cardstock, but it wasn't necessary. Finally I put everything down onto the red easel, attaching the white base to a narrow, pre-scored flap so the card can stand up. I liked my card as it was but I could easily add a sentiment to the base. This card would also make a great tree ornament as it is not too big. What can you imagine creating  with it?
