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!

Challenge Reminder: Happy Birthday!
by Tiffany Pryce

20211223_122457


Hi everyone! Tiffany here with a reminder of this month's challenge. It's a new year, so it is a perfect time to start on your birthday card stash. Our theme this month challenges you to do just that! Pull out your supplies and create a birthday related project. 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.

For inspiration, I'm pulling out an oldie, but goodie - the Happy Birthday Background die. It was released many years ago, but it is still available in the shop. I think it makes the perfect clean and simple birthday card that you can decorate or style in many ways. I started by die cutting the background die twice from white cardstock. I stacked the two panels together and adhered with spray adhesive. I recommend reinforcing some intricate areas like inside the letters  with a little liquid glue to ensure the panels are glued together well.

Next, I die cut several Whittle Cupcakes and Whittle Ice Cream Cones from white cardstock. I colored each die cut with various pastel colors of copic markers. I also added some Fairy Sugar in the color Dewdrop on each die cut for a little sparkle. Pro tip: make sure you are squeezing out some test drops on scratch paper before bringing the drops to your project. My bottle squirted out everywhere, and thankfully it was not near my die cuts! Because it squirted everywhere, I decided to apply the drops with my fingers. I felt like I had more control and could spread a thin, even layer by using my fingers. So a blessing in disguise!

I arranged the die cuts on my panel and popped up each with foam tape for dimension. I had an extra ice cream cone so I pasted it flat inside the card for decoration. On vellum, I stamped and silver heat embossed a small, coordinating sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set. I adhered the sentiment strip behind one of the cupcakes and added small drops of liquid glue behind the heat embossing to hide the glue. To finish the card, I added a bow from twine in my stash.

Hope you are inspired to join us in this month's challenge. Happy crafting!

Warm Wishes

Happy New Year Poppy peeps! May your year be filled with love, new adventures, and good health! I'm sharing a card I made using the adorable Whittle Friendly Snowman and a fun alcohol ink background technique.

I recently watched a Jennifer McGuire video where she shared an alcohol ink background technique. You smoosh two panels of yupo paper together to spread the alcohol ink and create a unique blend. Instead of yupo paper, I used silver, glitter alcohol ink cardstock. On a piece of alcohol ink cardstock, I spread alcohol blending solution and several shades of blue, purple, and silver metallic alcohol inks. I carefully smooshed another piece of alcohol ink cardstock on top, pressing all over the panel to ensure coverage, then pulled the panels apart. Pulling the panels apart leaves interesting texture in the ink and is fun to experiment with. I loved that it looked like an abstract, snowy sky. Alcohol ink is so forgiving, so if you don't like your panel, add more blending solution and ink and try again! You will end up with a completely different background. It is hard to tell in the photos, but the glitter paper peeks through the alcohol ink and is so pretty.

With my background complete, I worked on the other elements of the card. From white cardstock, I die cut the Birch Tree and the Whittle Friendly Snowman. I also cut snow banks by hand with scissors. On the tree and the ground, I added puffy embossing powder to mimic snow. For the snowman, I lightly blended blue ink on the edges for a little dimension and colored his nose and accessories with copic markers. I added black jewels for his eyes and buttons. I adhered the tree and snow banks to my background with liquid glue and the snowman with foam tape.

For the sentiment, I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Wintertime Sentiments stamp set. I trimmed the sentiment into a banner by hand. Finally, I matted the card front with red cardstock, and I drew faux stitching around the edges with a white gel pen. Thanks for stopping by 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.

'Tis the Season
by Tiffany Pryce

20211201_142430

Hey friends! Tiffany here for some more holiday inspiration using the gorgeous Holiday Mistletoe die. I recently got some new embossing powders so I wanted to try them out on my Poppystamps stash. Heat embossing die cuts is a great way to stretch your supplies and get additional use from your dies. Let's dive into this clean and simple holiday card!

To start, I die cut an A2-sized panel with the Memory Box Pinpoint Daisy Background. I absolutely love the background piercing dies as it gives so much texture and interest to any design. Although they are technically daisies, the flowers reminded me of poinsettias, so I thought it worked for a holiday card.

For the mistletoe sprigs, I decided to heat emboss some cardstock before die cutting because the die cut was delicate. I swiped embossing ink on white cardstock and added embossing powder. I did this three times for each color of embossing powder - sparkly dark blue, sparkly teal, and lime green. Feel free to switch up the colors and make a set of cards! After the embossed cardstock cooled, I die cut each piece with the Holiday Mistletoe die. I adhered the sprigs together, varying their heights for more interest. I also added  Fairy Sugar in Dewdrop on the "berries".

For the background behind the mistletoe, I cut about a 2 x 5.5 inch strip of white cardstock. I stacked the strip with 3 additional layers for additional dimension. I lightly blended some aqua ink on the cardstock strip. I carefully and strategically glued the mistletoe to the strip with liquid glue. I shaped the leaves a little and tied a twine bow at the top.

Finally, I stamped and die cut the sentiment from the Gilded Christmas Wishes stamp set. I love how this stamp set makes it easy to die cut a fancy sentiment label. Hope you enjoyed the card! See you next time.
