Seascape
by Jeanne Jachna

1c3

Sending you best fishes and underwater greetings today!  Making some punny scenes couldn't be easier than with the new Poppystamps whittles! 1stra

My cards always start with images arranged on a piece of plastic the size of my card base.  I can play around with arrangement and decide on what colors I want to use before I commit.  The clear plastic sheet allows me to slide different colors underneath to coordinate the designs.

The single cover with a stamped sentiment looked a little flat to me so I added two more layers of cardstock underneath.  I wanted to mimic the layers of shades and shadow you might see in an underwater scene.

The Whittle Seascape is double cut to add more dimension to the design.  The fish are cut from rainbow colors and adhered with adhesive foam tape.  I added some silly eyes to the Whittle Happy Octopus, and some Memory Box Fairy Drops are underwater bubbles.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

You're Fintastic

Hi! Nancy here, and today I'm showcasing some of the new Whittles dies. So keep scrolling for an under-the-sea adventure!

DSC_0188_wm

The newest from Poppystamps includes a sentiment stampset that perfectly coordinates with the new Whittle critters, including these sea creatures. And don't you love the new speech bubbles? New to the MB shop are the Fairy Bubbles, from Open Studio with adhesive on the back so there's no glue cleanup! Love it!

I die cut all my critter goodies from white card stock, and inked them with Distress Oxide, before assembling my sea scene.

The star of the show is the seahorse, gold embossed and glittered. She's the birthday girl, and knows it!

As you can see, I popped out her fin a bit, and gold embossed it as well.

Hope you enjoyed the underwater adventure today. I've listed all the items used on this card below. Have a wonderful weekend!

The Snail Mail Trail
by Sue McRae

20210508_093347c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a card using some products from the Whittle family of dies and stamps.

I’ve had my eye on the Whittle Snails because they’re so adorable! There are two snails in this set and I used the smaller one. I die cut the snail multiple times from white card stock and inked up the snail bodies in grey ink and the shells in a mix of pastel colours and then spritzed everything with Perfect Pearls for a little bit of shimmer.

The Whittle Sun was die cut from white card stock and was inked and sprayed.

20210508_093633c

The Wavy Long Picket Fence was die cut from some new Woodgrain Paper in cream and I used a strip of the Kraft Woodgrain Paper for the ground. The Woodgrain Paper also comes in white. Love this stuff for adding subtle texture to my card designs.

20210508_093534c

My scene was created on a piece of blue paper from the Ocean Blue Paper Pad. I added a Whittle Cloud Border and a sentiment from the Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments Stamp Set. The snails were popped up with foam dots and I cut a thin strip of glitter paper for a snail trail.

20210508_093833c

Once my card was finished I felt like something was missing and figured out it was googly eyes! Yes, the googly eyes make these snails even more cute!

Christmas Snowglobe
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0009

Greetings Poppy Peeps! There's a crispness in the air, signalling my favorite time of year... Christmas! Sending and receiving holiday cards are a tradition I cherish. today I'm sharing a card I made with several Poppystyamps dies and their new holiday paperback. 

DSC_0001 2_wm

All products will be listed at the bottom of this post. One extra special new one,  is the designer paper with the gold thread used as the base for my card.

DSC_0005

I chose to use several shimmer card stocks for the snowglobe and house. Just that extra sheen is so festive! The snowglobe includes the snowy layers, perfect for tucking in the main elements.

DSC_0003

The snowy sky is the reverse of one of the designer papers in the pack. Really, the only stamping was the embossed sentiment on the base of the snowglobe. Everything else is die cut!

DSC_0005

Look closely to see I did cut a darker color for each of  the white snowflakes, so they'd stand out against the plaid. The trees too. You might notice too, I die cut the ring of the snowglobe 3 times and glued them together for dimension. The base is built up with foam.

I hope you found some inspiration today. Christmas scenes are so much fun to create, especially with all the darling dies Poppy has for the holidays. Hope your week is extra crafty!

Galaxy Christmas
by Sue McRae

20201114_132438c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a Christmas card using a galaxy sky background for the cute Simple Lantern Oval die.

20201114_132511c

This is my first attempt at making a galaxy sky with Distress Inks and I have to say it was a lot of fun!

20201114_143654c

I took white cardstock and pounced and blended a few Distress Ink colours randomly over the panel. I added pink and purples first, then light blues and darker blues and finally black. And yes, it looks like a hot mess when you're starting out (as you can see in the pic) and it doesn't matter if you have blotches because as you continue to add colours it evens out and some sort of dark night sky magic happens.

20201110_212626c

When I was happy with the inking, I mixed Perfect Pearls with water and flicked it on the panel and let it dry. Then I did the same with white paint and blue metallic paint and these became the stars and/or snow! Totally up to you! It really adds to creating depth in the night sky!

20201114_132524c

I die cut the Simple Lantern Oval 4 times from black cardstock and layered them. I added a piece of glitter cardstock behind the lantern for a little sparkle.

For the scene, the house and tree were die cut from white linen cardstock and for the snow I die cut the Whittle Cloud Border from white pearl foil paper from the Polished Foil Pad.

20201114_132547c

The Holly Merry Christmas was die cut from the same sparkly platinum cardstock found in the Holiday Glitter Pad.

20201114_132443c

I hope you get inky and try making your own galaxy background and incorporate it into one of your Christmas cards!

Wishing you a crafty week!

Hi there! Marybeth, here today. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying October.

For this card, I used the beautiful Snowy Forest Embossing folder from memory box , for the backdrop of my card. 

937CC73D-F193-4929-8B2F-B51C75596935_1_201_a

Not sure if you can see but I added some glitter on the embossed folder , its such a beautiful  shimmer in person.

I simply added the glitter die cut trees from Poppystamps to the already embossed panel.

In the photo above I am showing how I die cut the leaves , you might not even need a metal shim but the trees came out so beautifully when I did. Glitter paper is a bit thicker than most paper,  the dies cut like butter with the shim. You could probably use an extra paper if needed and you don't have a shim.

I always cut out way more than I need  so I can choose as I go, to create my card then I have extra for the next card.
