You're Fintastic
by Nancy Penir


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


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


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.


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.


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.


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!


Thanks for visiting with me today!

Chin Up
by Kim Singdahlsen


As soon as I saw the brand new Word Balloons I had imagined a card with a row of animals and a variety of sentiments.  All of the Whittle stamp sets have a combination of punny sentiments and basic sentiments so I knew it would be fun to create a zoo or a barnyard or an ocean full of critters all saying their own thing.  That's how I started on this card and I still want to do that, but sometimes you have to listen to your mojo and in this case that Whittle Goat and his sweet expression just kept coming to the top of the pile of animals and calling my name. 


You can't go wrong using the Whittles with their cute facial expressions on any type of card.  I don't know how Poppystamps does it but the expressions on all the Whittles seem to change and go with the different types of sentiments.  If I use a sentiment like "You are one sly fox" or "Feline good" - the expressions can be a little smug.  If I use a sentiment like "Missing you pig time", they can look a little dreamy like they are thinking of you.  If I use a sentiment like "I can't adult today", they can look a little overwhelmed or sleepy. 

The Word Balloons die cuts five balloons at the same time.  I cut it a couple of times so I had ten balloons in front of me.  Then I am lucky to have all four of the current Whittle sentiment sets.  I had so much fun finding the sentiments that fit the balloons - sentiments that all had the same encouraging tone. I'd rearrange the balloons so the sentiments flowed, then I'd the change the sentiments, then I'd rearrange.  I actually took pictures along the way because some of what I came up with will fit nicely on another card with different animals.

I don't use a lot of patterned paper on my cards but these Whittle Goats were crying for their own field of grass and flowers! I found exactly the look I wanted in a Memory Box paper pad.


I decorated that first Whittle Goat with a little bow. Then I love a hint of bling, and the new Bright Fairy Jewels had just the right golden color!

There's nothing better than a card that's fun and meaningful to give to someone but also was truly fun to make.  I know we all love our hobby or we wouldn't be doing it.  But I also know that cards can be frustrating or the mojo can disappear for a while. I find working with the Whittles can be a great solution. Their expressions and fun little sentiments can bright your day before they ever mailed out to brighten somebody else's day.

I hope you have a great cardmaking day!!

You Goat This
by Nancy Penir


Welcome Poppy Friends! Have you tried an Easel Card yet? Poppy's newest is the cutest barn. 


Everything you need to make a pop up easel card is included in the set. What you can do with it, well, take a look at this 'farm girl's' barn with some of the new Whittles.


Oh yes, a chicken with eggs, a cow and a goat. This card lets you know the goat is a party animal!


And don't forget the chicks!

I used a bit of moss over the top window, and nestled the hen with eggs in the 'hay'.

Here's a tip to doing the barn. I ran it through once, and then again with my emboss rubber to get the deep impressions of the wood siding. Then inked it to look weathered.


The easel becomes flat and fits an A2 envelope perfectly.


The Whittle family is growing! Check back often to see the newest.

Thanks for visiting today, hope it brought you a smile!
