Ice Cream, Ice Cream, Who Wants Ice Cream?

Thursday, June 10th, 2021

Hello Friends!

It’s Susan here today sharing a card for  Random Acts of Cardness. The prompt for today is Ice Cream.  One of my favorite treats to have as a kid – and still is – are ice cream sandwiches. LOVE them! So when I saw the Whittle Ice Cream Sandwich Die from Poppystamps I knew right away I had to have it.

The die has the detailed piece you see on the top of the sandwich and a plain piece for the bottom and for the middle. I used the plain piece to cut some white craft foam for the ice cream to put between the chocolate layers. I cut the Poppystamps Playful Hugs Die 5x from card stock and layered them on top of each other – I used a scrap piece of blue card stock from my stash for the top layer but added some Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky Distress Inks for a little bit of variation. I used the same inks to do a little ink blending behind the sandwiches. I used the Poppystamps Word Balloons Dies to write on my sentiments. I adhered everything to a card stock panel that I cut with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Dies – I used the 2nd largest one – and I used craft foam for more dimension.

The Poppystamps Whittles line of products are sooooo cute. I’m having a blast playing with them. AND they are not expensive so you don’t have to feel guilty about buying a lot of them – I know I didn’t feel guilty.

Tuesday with Tara {take 303} Whittle Cactus Trio

Tuesday, June 8th, 2021

Happy Tuesday y’all!  I just couldn’t resist… I had so much fun creating my cards for the Whittle Things Blog Hop that I just kept on going.  Here’s one more card with my Whittle Cactus Trio dies!

I wanted to highlight the dies as a trio, so chose a mini slimline as my base for this card.  It’s a fun size to work with, just 3.5 x 6″ so it let me look at my products in a new way!  I also wanted to pair the dies with the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Year Ten mini set for a fun birthday card.

I selected the hexagon stacked tiles dies by Tim Holtz as a base for my cacti and sentiment, originally planning to put one cactus on each hexagon.  I inked up a piece of white Cardstock with my trio of Distress Ink- Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade & Salvaged Patina, blending the colors together and splattering with water before I cut a variety of hexagons out of it.

Playing around with placement, I ended up with the one you see here, giving the sentiment it’s own hexagon rather than stamping it below the tiles as I originally planned. The little flower from the stamp set (stamped onto a scrap of the Abandoned Coral card stock) added a fun touch to my center tile.

As you can see, I’ve had a lot of fun with this little Cactus Trio!  If you haven’t visited our Whittle Things Blog Hop, there’s still time to get in on the fun- inspiration and a chance to win a prize!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Cute Critters!

Wednesday, May 26th, 2021

Today’s prompt for the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge is ‘animals’, so I’m here to share some cute critters with you! It’s Deb here today, for the Design Team. I pulled out an older stamp & dies combo from MFT called Beach Bunnies, and combined it with the recent Picket Fence Studios Slimline Die Cutting System.

BEACH BUNNIES PEEK-A-BOO

It was fun to give these bunnies their own personalities and fur colour!

Cute Critters!

The fun part is that you can choose any colour, for any part of this card, to use! I went with blue for my cardstock, for a ‘blue sky’ kind of background.

CARD DETAILS

Create your card base of 7″ x 8 1/2″. Score and fold in half at 3 1/2″, and set aside. Next, use the PFS Slimline Die Cutting  System to die cut the top layer, and each circle.  I like the added touch of the stitching around the circle dies. Next, use the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die to die cut 2 strips of grass, from a mid-green cardstock.

Stamp the bunnies, birds and heart in Nocturne ink onto white cardstock. Use your favourite markers to colour the images; I used a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir, from my stash. Now, use the coordinating Beach Bunnies dies & die cut each image. Add some interest to the die cut grass by blending on some Mowed Lawn distress ink, with a blending tool.

Now, add 2 layers of the grass to the bottom of each circle, using glue or double sided tape. Next, add this layer to the card base, using foam tape or squares. Add foam tape or squares to the back of the die cut images, and then place the bunnies inside each circle. Allowing the bunnies to be partially outside of the circles adds more dimension. Finally, add the birds, heart and a few of the Brutus Monroe Acrylic Bubbles to the front.

Cute Critters!

I decided to add  a die cut sentiment to the front. Use your Big Shot with the MFT Sweet Hello die, and the Memory Box bright yellow glitter paper. This glitter paper is very stiff & sturdy, so you don’t have to layer it. Attach it with glue to the card front, and you’re done!
