Whimsy Stamps September Release Day 2


Life is BUSY atm, getting ready to fly out to Rome on Tuesday and I'm working tomorrow so got to get everything ready today, but before I get back to it I'd like to share another card with products from the September release.

It's never too early to start on Christmas cards right? I'm probably a bit late starting mine, but I thought I'd make something a little different.
I used the new Peekaboo Window 1 Die and combined it with an older Background Stamp Snow Flurry, embossing it with white embossing powder on watercolour paper and then doing a subtle ombre blending with blue inks to complement the beautiful blue butterflies I used from Kay's Kreative Korner.

I used some silver glitter cardstock to mount the butterflies so they stood out against the background, and finished the card with some clear gems.

I didn't want to cover my card with a sentiment, so I put that on the inside.

That's all folks, I'm off to finish sorting my packing ready for tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting!

Whimsy Stamps September Release - Day 1


It's time for the new September release from Whimsy Stamps, where has the year gone?!

My card today uses both the new Web Background rubber stamp and the Halloween Creatures Stencil. Sooooo fun to use. The sentiment is a combo of the Happy large word die and the Happy Sayings clear stamp set. I've listed items used along with links at the end of my post, just click on the pictures to go to products in the store.

First I stamped the background using my MISTI and some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink onto some light grey cardstock.

Once dry I used the stencil and some Black Soot distress ink to stencil on the spiders.

I cut my panel with one of the Nested Stitched rectangle dies and then matted onto black cardstock leaving a very narrow border.

I made a card base from the same light grey cardstock that I used for my background.
I cut some purple glitter cardstock a little smaller than my card base and glued that down then mounted my background onto it with some craft foam in between. Because it's really difficult to adhere stuff to glitter card and because I hate wasting pretty cardstock behind stuff, I cut the centre of the glitter card out with a smaller rectangle die before gluing it to my card base.

I cut several Happy die cuts using the same grey stock and cut the final one in the glitter cardstock and stacked and glued them together and set aside. I stamped and embossed the halloween sentiment in silver onto some black cardstock and trimmed it to fit. I then glued this and the stacked Happy die cut to my card.

Finally to finish I glued some purple gems onto my spiders for a little more bling!

Mermaid Kisses


I'm here with my final card for August and as you probably know by know I love myself a mermaid, so using this Salty Hair clear stamp set from Whimsy Stamps was a bit of a no brainer.

I stamped and coloured my images with my Zig Markers and the background was made using Distress Oxides and the Whimsy Stamps. I used the circle frame from the Shaker Maker Combo Die and stacked several die cuts together to give some elevation,

I've linked all the Whimsy products below my card, with links to the items in store.
