Poppystamps Valentine – Day 2

Welcome back everyone! I’m so happy you’re joining me for another installment of super cute die cut Valentine cards featuring more Poppy Stamps dies!

Today I’m adding another critter in the mix and some great word dies too! I hope you enjoy them!

I just couldn’t let those backgrounds go to waste so I’m using 2 more of them on my cards today. Let’s start with this beautiful teal one!

I adhered the teal Confetti Heart panel to a card base and set to die cutting my elements. This time we’ve got the Whittle Giraffe and Love Outline dies. I used my copics to color the giraffe and then popped them both up with foam squares. Next I took the melon colored hearts and inlaid them above the giraffe like the love is just emanating from him. So sweet!

Finishing touches on this quick card are glossy accents on the inlaid hearts and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the Love Outline. I think the colors of this card are so fabulous together and it all just makes me smile!

For our second card today, I couldn’t go long without making more pandas so he’s back and hanging out with his new friend, giraffe.

After adhering my purple Confetti Heart background I inlaid purple, pink and white hearts in all the spaces this time. Then I die cut the Hugs Tags from white and kraft cardstock. I popped the white tags up and inlaid the kraft letters. Then I die cut my Whittle Panda, Whittle Giraffe and Whittle Mound and colored them all with copics. These are also popped up with foam squares. Voila! This simple card is finished too.

Both of today’s cards are actually versatile and don’t have to be Valentine cards, which I love. Sometimes you just need to spread a little love and hugs!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Poppy Stamps Valentines – Part 1

Hello again! I’m super excited to be back and share these fun die cut cards featuring the Valentine release from Poppy Stamps! If you know me at all, you understand that the second I saw this Whittle Panda, I absolutely had to have it! But there was no way I could just order that, so I found a few other fun things to add to my cart and have had a blast playing with it all.

As if that wasn’t wonderful enough, I won the Instagram giveaway from Poppy Stamps for a die that I already bought (because I’m impatient and couldn’t wait) and they were so gracious to let me choose different product which added to my Valentine fun! Today I’ve got 2 cards to share with you and tomorrow I’ll be back with 2 more. I hope you enjoy!

Squeee!!!! I’m so excited about this little panda! I seriously just want to put him on everything! As soon as I opened this awesome Confetti Heart Plate die I knew I had to cut it from all the colors!!! I held back a little though, just 5 colors this time. 🙂 Then I started playing around with different ideas and built a couple of backgrounds.

For this first card I took the white Confetti Heart outline the die gives you and inlaid all the colors randomly. Then I die cut my Whittle Panda and Heart Taglet. I colored the panda and heart with copics and then popped them both up with foam squares. I stamped a sentiment from Trinity Stamps Love and Stuff Sentiments, cut it into a strip and popped it up with foam tape as well.

For finishing touches on this first card I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the heart in the tag, glossy accents to the panda’s nose and covered random small hearts with Stickles throughout the panel.

Like I said, once I got started, there was no way I could stop. So we’ll just roll right into the second card for today and all it’s cuteness!

This time I took the melon Confetti Heart background and only inlaid melon and teal hearts. Then I took some random white hearts and popped them up with foam tape. I thought it gave a cute bit of interest to a simple card. I die cut my Whittle Panda again, pairing him with the Whittle Mound and colored them with copics. I popped them up with foam squares and then took one of the small hearts and added it to the panda’s tummy. So much cuteness!

For finishing touches on this card I added glossy accents to the panda’s nose and heart and then snagged a tiny sentiment from Trinity Stamps Monster Love set and stamped it in the white heart opening closest to the panda.

I had so much fun making these cards. I hope you enjoyed them and find a little inspiration to be creative!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Poppystamps Dies meets Trinity Stamps Sentiments

Hello again! Today I’m sharing a set of three clean and simple (CAS) cards featuring a recent prize I won during the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog hop – a gift certificate for Poppystamps. I chose a handful of dies from their “whittle” collection. These really caught my eye and I was excited to play with them. I decided to pair them with a Trinity Stamps new sentiment set called Merry Christmas Senti-mini.

For each of these cards I die cut the elements from white cardstock and custom colored them with my copic markers. Then adhered some with liquid glue and others with foam squares.

I chose a sentiment and stamped it either directly to the card front or, like the one above, die cut and glued on.

And then for finishing touches on each I glued embellishments to the background to go with the scene I had created.

The embellishments I used were also from Trinity Stampssnowflake soup mix, cinnamon red hots jelly drop hearts and frosty snowflakes sprinkles.

These cards came together quickly and would be wonderful if you’re making a mass amount for the holidays. I love the earthy feel that they give, completely different from anything I typically gravitate toward.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
