Summer Release Blog Blitz Begins!

Snap-Three
It's a great day for a visit!  Our Summer Release Blog Blitz begins TODAY!  That means we're sharing projects made with the new release and offering some prizes on every blog blitz post for the next two weeks.  You can see all the new release dies HERE in the store.  You'll find lots of new WHITTLE style critters that are sure to make you smile! 
Snap-Two
I love to make cards with scenes!    This Whittle Koala has found himself up a tree surrounded by snappers!  But it's a beautiful sunny day so if he waits them out he'll be OK!  There's a message in there.. most of our problems are only temporary! 
Snap-One
This card starts with a background of clouds made by using the Stitched Cloudline die as a stencil.  Simply hold the die cut in place and ink around the curvy edge.  Move the die cut up every inch or so and ink it again.  You can ink as many  (or as few) clouds as you like. Next I added Old Paper distress ink to the bottom half of the card to create a sandy beach.  I splattered a darker shade of distress ink over the sandy bottom half using a piece of paper to shield the clouds. 
Snap-Four
All that's left to do is to add the different images to create a scene.   I added Whittle Mounds, Gaters, Crabs,  Palm Tree, Clouds and Koala.  Usually I cut from colored card stock. This time I tried something new and inked scrap pieces of white card stock with distress ink.   I cut the dies from these pieces.   You could also ink the images AFTER you cut them, but this kept the images flat and wrinkle free. 
Snap-Three
I think the details really help bring a scene to life.  I added bitty silly eyes to the gators and extra branches to the palm trees.  If you love the Whittle style dies then you'll NEED the Whittle Everyday stamp set.  It's got lots of punny sentiments that work well with the animals.

Alcohol Inks
by Marybeth Lopez

 

Fullsizeoutput_2aab

Hi there, friends of Poppystamps Marybeth here again with one of my favorite dies from Poppystamps : Garden Poppy Stitched Frame. This time I used it with one of the many alcohol ink papers I made a while ago . I made so many and wasn't sure if I like them but so happy I kept them all. As you can see below with this frame die I can be selective of what part of the paper I want to use.
IMG_2242

I sort of see the gold as grass in the wind , red as hills of poppies, and sky blue. I layered the center frame two times then added to the center .The back of the panel has fun foam to rise it off the blue base .

I've posted in the past a link to see how this is done , but you have many ways and choices of seeing videos on how to use alcohol inks.

I like how this one die, can look so different just by changing a few things. I used watercolor paper called Masters Touch ( any will do) for the white panel. 

Take care and thanks for the visit.

Challenge Reminder: Animal Kingdom
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0003

Hi there! Are you playing along with the Poppystamps Challenge? This month it's an Animal Kingdom theme. I love all animals, especially farm animals. We raise chickens for their eggs and ducks, just cuz they make great pets. Believe me if some critter enters our yard, they sound the alarm! My reminder card features Poppy's Whittle ducks.

DSC_0008_wm

I love playing around with all the fun alcohol inks, water color backgrounds and embossing folders for dramatic textural settings, and on this card I chose an already made watery background made with Lindy's stamp gang's Magicals in blues and greens. A perfect setting for my duck family.

The stripes were made with my scoring tool.

DSC_0205

The 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" background was scored on 2 sides at 1/4" lines. I turned the card over so the lines would pop outward.

DSC_0005

I used The Delicate Branch Collage Die to frame the ducks. And since I'm always in need of birthday cards, I chose the Doodle Happy Birthday for my sentiment.

I know if you're an animal lover like me, you have lots of critters in your stash. Create a card or a project and play along for a chance to win!

Hope you're having a wonderful summer. Happy Crafting!

Challenge Reminder, Animal Kingdom
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1786

Hi there , I made this card for the:  Animal Kingdom Poppystamps Challenge. The birds just seemed to go best with the light and airy poppies .  I used Poppystamps Whittle birds ( so sweet ) and Garden Poppy Stitched Frame. This was simple and easy to create and sometimes simple is best , lets say for sympathy or thinking of you cards.

IMG_1777

I taped the die onto the panel then glued the paned to a pretty blue panel that then went on top of my white card base.  I was going to add a sentiment  but then thought this could go into a notecard set and best to leave blank until the person knows what the occasion will be. I think it could be used for lots of occasions.

Sending You Love
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_10-05-2019_11-40-55

Die cutting, heat embossed stamping, graphite blocks, Brusho Colours, distress markers, distress crayons and gilding wax...  this is my idea of Mixed Media fun!

I may have taken some artistic license with my 'higgledy-piggledy' shed inspired design, though...  After all, in my garden the field mouse runs and hides any time a bird gets near.  But it's nice to think that somewhere they are coexisting peacefully.

Want to know how this was made?

Q-2

You'll need two die cuts from the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame And Stencil set.

Use Brusho Colours just for the pots on the first one.  Whilst that is drying, cut off the pots from the second and use Graphite blocks to colour.  Then seal using Varnish spray.

W-2

Using either die cut frame as a guide, stamp and heat emboss the words 'you' and 'love' as shown.

Qq-2

Then add some ink.  I've used the stencil from the Ribbon Heart Sidekick frame and a Memory Box stencil called 'Tiny Dots'.

Ww-2

Just like a real gardener, we are going to do some pruning!

I've cut and coloured these pieces from the Spring Pots Shelves die...

E-2

...  added some more colour to the card base ...

Ee

...  cut out a mouse, cut and partially coloured two birds and cut and glued together the word 'sending'...

R-2

...  before finally gluing the two frames together as shown!

Just a touch of gilding wax.

_DSC1746-2

And then we can finally pot our flowers !

 

_DSC1733-2

Add the finishing touches as shown and you'll have your own slightly ramshackled yet oh so pretty little garden scene.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

To All My Peeps
By Jeanne Jachna

Peeps-Five
Wow this month has been going so fast!  With the weather so fickle here in the midwest - snow one day, rain the next, I can't decide if it's Spring or Winter.  Nope!  Yes!  It's SPRING!  And we have been waiting a long time for it! 
Peeps-Two-WM
I was so worried that the bulb flowers coming up wouldn't stand a chance but they are resilient like us.  A little back tracking of cold weather isn't going to stand in our way right?  
Peeps-Four
I stamped the rows of tulips and little birds from Easter Chicks (in my part of the world I'm calling them Robins because they're back from their Winter migration) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.  The images are easy to die cut with the coordinating window style dies that you place over the images and then die cut. 
Peeps-Three
I stamped the sentiment along  the bottom of a panel that I inked with distress ink (Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, and Squeezed Lemonade).  The tulips are adhered flat to the card panel, and the little birds are adhered with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension. 
Peeps
Wishing you a beautiful spring day!

Hippity Hoppity
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Scene-Four
I enjoy making cards depicting scenes with die cuts, but it's not always easy to find images that are proportioned to work together.  I'm loving the new "whittle" series of dies because they are perfectly sized and coordinated with cute stitched detail so they're ready to play together. 
Easter-Scene
I started this card with a simple distress ink background.  I used a piece of scrap paper to create a mask inking the sky with one half of the mask, and the grassy foreground with the other.   I topped the inked panel with a Double Stitch Scallop Rectangle Frame.
Easter-Scene-Five
I set a piece of clear plastic over the panel and arranged different die cuts until I was happy with their placement.   Because the plastic is clear, the background shows through allowing me to get an idea of how the card will look when all the elements are arranged.
Easter-Scene-Two
The Doodle Happy Easter die makes a sweet sentiment.   I filled the Whittle Basket with Whittle Eggs and topped it with a Prim and Proper Bow.
Easter-Scene-Four
The Chick and Egg are not part of the "Whittle" series but it's part of the new Spring Release and looked sweet next to the basket.  Wouldn't it be fun if there were a little chick hiding inside ALL the eggs?   Now that would be a surprise wouldn't it? 
Easter-Scene-One
Enjoy your day and never stop having fun!
