Kitty Kit
by Candice Crawford



Hi cr afters, Candice here on the blog showcasing the new Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit from Poppystamps.  This stamps and die kit is super cute. It contains several 5 kitty die cut images a circle image for a rug a box and two hearts. There is a coordinating stamp set that has seven punny sentiments and a miniature paw print image.


I used several elements from the kit to create today's card. First I created my own pattern paper for the bottom portion of the card, by stamping the paw print in a random pattern with versfine onyx black ink. 


Next I die cut three of the cat images from black cardstock and adhered them to the white card front panel with 3M foam tape. I cut a 1/4 inch strip of teal cardstock from stash and adhered it to the card front just above the stamped paw print images.


Then I die cut the smallest heart from white cardstock and colored it with my R29 Copic marker. Lastly I created the sentiment Just a Note using the new Modest Greetings 1 Hot Foil plate and die. 


I simply love how clean, simple and easy this card came together. I hope you've enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting.

Moose Hugs for My Guy

Just a reminder that the theme for this month's challenge is My Guy and we hope to see you playing along.  236800618_3307987012760970_42492384614323546_n

I just had to play along. The Whittle animals were what initially drew me to Poppystamps. They were just perfect for my two young teen (at the time) sons and my husband. The Whittle are very cute, but not cutesy! And now that there are multiple stamp sets full of punny little sayings for them, they show up on virtually every card that I make for them.  Of course, you all know that Poppystamps has so much more than the Whittle animals - have you seen the newest release of flowers and butterflies? Gorgeous!

I wanted to send my oldest son a big "hug" so I pulled out the Playful Hugs die then what better to go along with that hug than this jaunty Whittle Moose.  To decorate the "hugs", I adhered 1/4" strips of colored paper to some scratch paper and then cut the hugs. If you try this, be sure to apply adhesive to the very edge of each strip of paper. If you don't, some of the smaller pieces at the top and bottom of the "hugs" won't stick.  Trust me on this!

I knew it was going to be a small scene so I wanted to frame it to make it pop. I used the stitched inner frame from one of the Scalloped Stitch Frames. Then I cut the sky and the ground pieces just slightly larger than the inner dimensions of the frame and adhered it to the back of the frame. I adhered the "hugs" and the moose with the moose getting slightly tangled in the sentiment.  I filled in the sky with a few Whittle Clouds.

I gave the background just a bit of decoration using the Double Diamond Lattice Plate in white on the kraft.

Teacher Appreciation Card
by Tiffany Pryce


Hey Poppy friends! Did you know that Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday, May 2? My husband has been a math teacher at a public school for nearly a decade so I know how hard teachers work. I decided to pull out some supplies and create a very clean and simple card to say thank you to one of the hardworking educators at my husband's school. I hope this inspires you to make a few cards for the dedicated educators in your life.

To start, I die cut a panel of white cardstock using the Pinpoint Half Ring Plate die and trimmed a quarter inch from two sides. I adhered the panel to an A2 card base. 


Next, using the Berry Red and Ocean Blue paper packs, I trimmed quarter inch strips with my paper trimmer. I trimmed a piece of copy paper to 4.5 x 3.25 inches and adhered the strips in alternating colors. I trimmed any excess hanging over. I backed the panel with fun foam for dimension and adhered to the card front.

Next, I worked on the sentiment. I die cut the word 'teacher' from white cardstock using the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I die cut each letter twice from cardstock and once from fun foam and adhered the layers together. Using the lines of the panel, I lined up and glued the letters across the panel with liquid glue. For a little extra detail, I added crystal glaze on each letter. I stamped the sub-sentiment from the Life is Sweet stamp set with prize ribbon distress oxide ink, cut it into a strip, and adhered with foam tape.


Lastly, I die cut the Whittle Pie die from white cardstock. With dye ink and copic markers, I colored the pie crust top. For the pie tin at the bottom, I die cut the piece from silver cardstock in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror pad. I adhered the crust with foam tape and then glued the completed pie above the letters.


If you make a card for an educator in your life, I'd love to see it. I think it would bring him or her so much joy. Please tag Poppystamps and me on Instagram. Happy crafting!

2 Easy, CAS Happy Mail cards
by Sphoorti





Hello Poppystampers!


I'm back with 2 very easy, very clean and simple (CAS) cards for you today! I actually had 4, but one of the products I used on 2 of the cards was discontinued (my bad, I didn't realize it), so I'm just going to talk about the 2 other cards, which surprisingly were off-shoots of the original cards. By that, I mean - I planned the other two cards, I had a vision and implemented it. And I had some extras remaining with which I made the two you see here. Funny, huh?


So, let's get into it!


I fell in love with this little Stitched Envelope die and cut up a number of envelopes with various types of card stock (like Neenah Solar White / Vellum / Glitter / Foil) etc. Just a tip, though - choose thin card stock for this because it'll be easier to score it and get it to stick. (Don't do what I did and use Neenah Solar White 110 pound)




I scored and sealed the envelopes with glue (and where they refused to stick due to thickness of the Neenah card stock, I ended up using superglue and it worked like a charm). I put little puffy heart stickers where the top and bottom flaps meet and set them aside.




My original idea was to have the envelopes floating in the clouds (I'll post a picture of this on Instagram eventually), but for these two cards, I happened to see a spare frame from the Double Scalloped Stitched Frame Die on my desk and played around with the envelopes on the frame like so:




I liked how the frame looked with the little envelopes on it, so I moved forward with the idea, and adhered the frame with the envelopes on a top folding portrait card base.




I cut up a bunch of layers of the Playful Hugs sentiment die and stacked them up to make a chipboard like die-cut. I applied it to the bottom of the frame horizontally. After I glued it down, I didn't like it very much (I felt that the envelopes were clouding the sentiment and it felt cramped down there), so I decided to make another one with a vertical orientation of the same sentiment. That's how I ended up with card # 2. Which one do you like better?




I absolutely adore these puffy heart stickers, so I couldn't help but put them on the frame too. I did that for both, but with different orientations.




Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? Which card did you like better? Please do let me know! We love to hear from you! Thank you for sticking with me through the end of this post!
