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).

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?

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!

Cabin Snowglobe
by Sue McRae

20211201_132908c

Hello everyone, Sue here with a card using the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Die Set. This is such a wonderful set for creating charming Christmas, winter, or anytime of the year cards. It’s perfect for making masculine cards, which I know can be difficult to create.

20211128_210918c

I went with a frosty look in blues, pinks and purples for my design. For the background I inked up the circle die cut with Distress Inks and sprayed it heavily with Perfect Pearls for lots of shimmer.

To create a swirly, windy sky I embossed this piece with the Waves 3D Embossing Folder. Love how it turned out!

20211201_133200c

I die cut all my different scene pieces with a variety of Memory Box coloured and glitter cardstock.

For the snowglobe base I used the White Woodgrain Paper and ink blended some gray on top.

You can really play around with all the layers and add foam adhesive to create depth and dimension. I added foam dots between the house and yellow window background for some nice shadows.

The great thing about this popup card, is that it fits into an A2 envelope, even with all the layers and added dimension.

20211201_133426c

I stamped a simple sentiment on the inside of the card so that there’s lots of room for adding a personal message.

20211201_132838c

Just think how different this card would look for spring with grass instead of snow, some added flowers and blooming trees and a bright sky inked in yellow and orange.

Thanks for visiting with me on the blog 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!
