Easter Bunny Basket tags
by Nancy Penir


Hello, Peeps! Are you enjoying spring break? With all the kiddies home, and Easter a few days away, I made some Easter basket tags I hope you'll enjoy. 


These are large, and assemble rather quickly with the pieces die cut and ready to go.


I began by die cutting Whittle Cutie Rabbit in several of the plaid papers. These would be doubled with coordinating solid colors.


Rather than a tag die, I used the Basic Ovals to create my own die. That way it accommodated the elements in my design. Also

the grass was extended and shaped on the bottom like the shape of an egg.

It really stands out on the basket handle. My eggs are from my home grown chickens that lay Easter eggs! Blues and greens, browns and whites. They all taste the same, just the shells are different, and such a treat to gather each morning!


All my supplies are listed below, and the links take you to the shop. With lots of pieces already die cut, the tags go quickly. One note: The floral piece on the bottom right was first cut from white cardstock, then the 2 purples and green. The colored pieces were then cut and added to the base white. 

Hope you were inspired to create some tags for your Easter baskets. Have a wonderful, happy, Blessed Easter!

Cabin Snowglobe with a twist!
by Sphoorti




So, it turns out that I'm not quite done with the winter, the snow, or the Cabin Snowglobe Die Set. When the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit craft die was release in January, I had an idea to use components of it with the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Die Set that was released in the 2021 Holiday Release. I was finally able to implement it!

Here's how I made it...

Do you guys remember my post from January: The Glitzy and Pastelly Rainbows? Well, I had a couple of glitzy rainbows left over that I saved, and so step 1 = complete!

Then, I took the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit craft die set and cut out the unicorn and his fabulous wings and hair and horn with silver cardstock, and his body with just plain white cardstock. I colored his nose and mouth area with a gray copic marker. I stacked a bunch of diecuts to give him some dimension and sturdiness. (Somehow I still managed to break his neck - not sure if you can tell from the pictures. Poor guy).




Anyway, after I was done putting him together, I cut out all the components of the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Die Set with white and silver cardstock. The globe portion at the top - I cut out from cardstock on which I applied double sided adhesive so that I could sprinkle the Diamond Dust for the sparkly goodness, because what's a unicorn without sparkle?




I put the glittery background all the way in the back and then layered the hills in the front, and foam mounted the rainbow. I used some stickles glitter along the hills for some added dimension. And then I put the unicorn dude at the forefront of it all. What do you guys think?




I felt like there was enough going on and did not want to add more. Do let me know how you feel about a card without a sentiment. Hope you still liked it!

Rainbow Pig
by Kim Singdahlsen

2.24.22 PS side bl

My rainbow pig card uses a variety of new products from the February release. The release is full of beautiful flowers, wonderful new sentiments and the most charming Grand Whittle Pig!!  She's really just a grown-up Whittle Pig but her "grand" size really shows off her fabulous expression.  When I was reading the sentiments in the new Colorful Life clear stamp set and I saw the rainbow sentiment, I knew it was something that the Grand Whittle Pig would totally embrace!!

I used the new Potpourri Floral Set to give her a rainbow of flowers. There are a variety of flowers in the set. I picked three of them in a size that worked for her but there are others that are bigger and all of them layer if you want more dimension (but my sweet pig already had enough of a statement necklace even without layering up the flowers!) Then I added jewels on each flower mostly from the Bright Jewels but I had to pluck the purple from the Autumn Jewels.

To give her some sophistication(!), I added a layer of black glossy paper. You can kind of see a hint of the shine in the above picture, but even if the shine doesn't show, it is beautiful deep, rich black. Then I tried a variety of options for the bottom base layer - from patterned paper to embossing folders - but then it occurred to me that I could use the Flower Field Frame and it would just stick out along the edges. Doing it tone-on-tone is subtle yet adds so much interest.

This card makes me happy.  It's a card that may never leave my craft area.  I have picture ledges on the wall over my computer which I use to display cards that speak to me. Whether I'm coming into my office to make cards or whether I'm at my computer doing something depressing like paying bills or doing taxes - these cards make me smile or they inspire me. My rainbow pig already has a place of honor on this shelf.Kim Floral Signature copy



Amazing Unicorn

Did you know we have a monthly challenge here at Poppystamps?  This month our challenge is called Heart Felt.  We're looking for projects that include a heart (maybe a Valentine for your sweetie?) or a bit of felt.  If you're feeling really creative you can add BOTH! 


If  you link up your design your automatically entered to win a $20 gift card to the store.  You don't have to have a blog to play along.. you can link up to your Instagram account or any on line gallery.  I love seeing the different projects linked up.  It's a great way to get ideas for different ways to use your Poppystamps products and to make some new friends!

I'm playing along with a "scene" card where the new Whittle Happy Unicorn is to star of the show.  I added lots of details like a double cut mane, a google eye, and a cheeky blush colored in with a marker.   The wing is adhered with adhesive foam tape to add a little dimension to the design.   


Sometimes designing your layout can be intimidating.  I always use a piece of clear plastic the size of my card base to arrange different elements.  The clear plastic sheet allows me to slip different colors and designs underneath to help me decide what colors and shapes to use before I commit and adhere everything in place.

I fussy cut some hilly grass from green cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit on  the bottom edge.  Memory Box has ombre card stock pads, glitter and foils too so all  your specialty papers are easy to find.

I like to use dies in unexpected ways.  On this card the Twinkling Hearts die is cut from yellow cardstock to create a sun.   Some bitty clouds are added and the blue sky is debossed using the Confetti Heart Plate.

I hope you find some time to play along with our challenge.  There's not much time left! You have until Midnight USEST on Friday to link your design!
