Amazing Whittle Giraffe!
by Birgit Norton

Howdy~ho Poppystamps friends!  I have the cuuuuutest card to share with you today, featuring the fun Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit.  Do you see a little sneak peek behind the scenes?  Lets jump right in and I'll give you all the details.

IMG_6327I knew I wanted to use the Whittle Racing Giraffe Kit, so I cut the giraffes out of a piece of pale yellow cardstock from the 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad.  I cut the tree pieces and the clouds out of a piece of white cardstock that had been previously embossed with a large polka dot pattern, which I found in my box of scraps.  I added color to each of the pieces using Copic markers on the giraffes and tree trunk and Distress Oxide inks on the clouds and tree canopies.  (I had cut two of the canopies).  Now what to do with the background??

IMG_6326I was a bit perplexed on what to do for a background until I came across the Nordic Flower Heads from the spring release.  I cut them out three times using soft yellow and soft orange from the same 6x6 Sunrise Solid Core Cardstock pad, and a piece of cream colored cardstock from my scrap box.  I commenced to laying the flowers out in a random pattern, trying to mix up the colors as much as I could, while covering the front of an A2 sized card.  I snipped off the flower pieces that were overhanging the sides and cut a piece of vellum that measured 4"x5 1/4" and glued it to the top of the flowery background.


Next, I glued the scenery pieces onto the front of the card, over the vellum layer.  I cut both the wavy and straight banners from the Sentimental Banners set out of white cardstock and had to decide which of the wonderful sentiments I was going to use. 


I finally setting on "You are Amazing".  


I think this card turned out so fun!

You're Purrfect

Happy Spring Poppy friends! Everything is waking up in my neck of the woods. The grass is green once again, the budding trees are filled with birds, the tulips are popping open and we've even had a thunderstorm or two. I tried to reflect a bit of that on my card today.

There's a pretty little gray cat who's been roaming around our neighborhood lately. He tucks himself in here and there just watching. He's even been known to squeeze under our fence to investigate our backyard. He's making an appearance on my card today in the form of the Whittle Purring Cat. I added a bit of pink to his nose with a Copic marker and placed him on a portion of one of the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel dies.

I've surrounded him with Layered Tulips, butterflies (also from the Fern and Daisy Pop Up Easel set) and a good sprinkling of Fairy Jewels. There are so many pretty flowers in the Poppystamps shop that would let you recreate this card for any season! My sentiment, from the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit, was stamped on a Word Balloon die cut. This is a great set to add to your stash for sentiments. The elongated shapes are fun!

It's Simple, it's sweet and I think it reflects the gray rainy days of April splashed with the bright happy colors of spring! Thanks so much for visiting, we love it when you do!

Sending Hugs to You
by Tricia Barber


Happy Friday!  It's Tricia here today to share a simple Sending Hugs card.  I started with some plaid cardstock using the Memory Box Poinsettia Plaid pad and covered my full card base. I created a focal point on my card with the Whittle Wood Picture Frames die.   I die cut the Whittle Wood Picture Frame twice from dark brown cardstock and once from white cardstock and layered the frames and used the white center to fill the frame in.  I used the Spring Fairy Jewels to add around the frame like little flowers.   


I adore the Whittle's dies, they are so cute!  I love this little mouse and die cut from grey cardstock and added some details with my Copic marker and white gel pen.  I added the little mouse to a framed focal point using the Whittle Wood Picture Frames. 


I foiled a sentiment using the Foil & Cut Modest Greetings 1 set.  I layered the sentiment several times to give it the same dimension as the frame.  Such a simple but cute card!   Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:

Hello and Merry Christmas! I'm sharing a pair of cards today featuring the charming Nordic Deer. Long post, lots of pictures!

I die cut them, dressed them up in their cozy winter outfits, then got to work on their cards. Here we go with number one...

Snowflakes were a must for this winter card along with a littler sparkle!

I cut the Scandinavian Snowflake Plate and a couple of large flakes from the Snowflake Loop along with the Lavish Merry Christmas sentiment. They went onto a cranberry card base.

The seniment comes with a shadow die. I choose the same green from the deer's outfit and a beautiful champagne glitter paper.

This close up of the deer shows that I used two different shades of kraft. His legs in the back are a little darker as are his antlers. I like that this die lets you position the legs in a couple of different ways.

My second card features the Nordic Whimsy Trees with the deer. 

23  0922  026 copy

I added a couple of layers of snowbanks using the Whittle Field and Trees die set.

The Nordic Trees have sweet details on them that look wonderful on their own or bejeweled!

Two deer, two cards. I hope either one says Merry Christmas to you!
