For a Whittle Animal Lover
by Kim Singdahlsen

2.22.21 PS BL

I have been making cards for a very long time - and I still love doing it.  One of the many reasons I love it is the ability to truly customize a card for the recipient.  I have a co-worker's birthday this week and I have been stumped.  I don't know her well.  I do know she is an animal lover.  I know she's not a girly-girl (based on her passion for Star Wars and Harry Potter). I have parts of multiple birthday cards on my desk, none of which were quite right.  I decided to take a break and move over to my card for today's Poppystamps post and as I flipped through my dies, it all came together in an instant.  There are so many wonderful Whittles for her love of animals.  Then in the newest release there is the Happy Birthday Poe Script which seemed just perfect to frame a row of whittles.

That row of Whittles makes me smile! I'm sure she will too.  I fit them around the "happy birthday" then I added dimensional adhesive on a few.  Finally I added a few gems just to keep it sparkly and celebratory.

I used a blue floral paper from Memory Box which kept it feminine but not girly.  But can you imagine doing this in pinks and maybe replacing the forest animals with the unicorn and hearts.  Or going with a bold stripe and using all of the zoo Whittles.  Just tuck a cupcake in amongst them and add your favorite birthday sentiment - perfect for an animal lover!

I love working with these little guys.  And with a fun die-cut sentiments and just the right paper, it came together quickly for a sweet birthday card!

You Made My Day
by Sue McRae

Happy Tuesday everyone! Sue here with a slimline card. It’s actually my first attempt at a slimline card and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. It’s a fun size to try different card design ideas. My slimline card measures 3.5” x 8.5” and can fit into a #10 business envelope.

I decided to make a colourful background with pieces of scrap cardstock that I cut into a variety of widths. I played around with the colours until I was happy, applied adhesive to the card base and adhered the strips.

Next I took the largest Whittle Circles Frame and die cut it 9 times from grey cardstock and adhered 3 frames together to create one thicker frame. I offset each layer when I adhered it because I like the dimension and depth it added to the frame.

Did you know there are some new animal friends that were added to the Whittle Family? I used three of the newest animals, the Squirrel, Sloth and Papa Hedgehog on my card. I die cut them from white cardstock and added them inside the wreaths. They are so cute!

I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set and finished off with a few gems.

This card makes me happy with its rainbow background and adorable critters and the slimline size was perfect for this design.

Nuts About You
By Jeanne Jachna

CU2

Hi friends and thanks for stopping by!  I hope life is treating you well and you're taking time to enjoy the simple things in life.   For me that's a homecooked meal, walking the dog, or making with bright colors and cute images that just make me smile! 

Side

The new Lattice Plate die makes a beautiful background for just about any card.  I topped it with a Pointed Oval Frame to "set the scene" for my Valentine card.   I cut the inside of the oval from light blue card stock to create a sky.  Next I layered some green paper that I cut with the Wave Trio and then cut it again with the same oval so that the shape matches the inside of the frame perfectly.

CU3

I cut Whittle Hearts in ombre shades of red and pink to create the foliage for the Whittle Tree Border.  Little circles or other shapes can be used to add color and foliage for different times of year. 

CU2

A Whittle Forest Squirrel was cut from kraft card stock.  I used a marker to add a little detail on the tail and down it's back.   The squirrel is holding a little heart and the "I'm Nuts about you" sentiment is added along the top of the card. 

Whittle-Squirrel-Valentine

I think you could recreate this scene for each of the four seasons simply by changing the colors and the foliage shapes.  I love products that are versatile so I can get more use from them!    Have a great day!

Greetings from a Whittle Sloth
by Kim Singdahlsen

1.18.21 PS Whittle Sloth 630

The newest release from Poppystamps included a Whittle Sloth!!  I don't think it could get any cuter! What a charming face!

Since the pandemic, my mother-in-law has been staying home.  She has always been a very busy, very extroverted lady. Even in her mid-80s, she volunteers for multiple organizations.  But besides her age, she has other conditions that are keeping her home.  She won't even let us visit. It's a small thing but I get a card sent out to her at least once a week.  I know she appreciates them because she has sent me pictures of her very full fireplace mantle. A card in the mailbox is a change of pace to the long hours.  But it occurred to me recently that most of my cards for her have been florals or leaves.  It was time to change it up.  And I picked the sloth for her!

I created a leafy, floral background for my sloth.  (The flowers are poinsettias but in bright colors, they looked tropical to me!)  The branch is actually the Swaying Birch. I trimmed a few branches off and added some Orchard Leaves. Then right in the middle of all of it - this happy Whittle Sloth.  I think my mother-in-law will get a chuckle out of this.

1.18.21 PS Whittle Sloth Close 630

I added a frame mainly because it gave the leaves on the branch some fun dimension.  I also brushed on a bit of blue ink for the sky.  The flowers have some glitter paper for their centers. I wanted the background to have a very cheerful look to be just right the sloth.

A list of everything I used is below.  I hope he made you smile!
