Whimsy Stamps - Stuck on you Cactus


I'm back with some more inspiration from Whimsy Stamps' February release.

This time I've made a fun card using the Stuck on you Cactus rubber stamp, which I coloured with my Zig markers and then fussy cut and mounted with foam tape on a background panel made with the new Swish stencil and several graduating colours of Distress Oxide inks.
I mounted my panel popped up on some craft foam over a panel of black cardstock on a lime green card base.
I stamped a simple sentiment from the Polka Dot Fun clear stamp set, directly beneath my image and finished the card with a few enamel dots.

I've linked the products used at the end of my post, just click on the picture to go directly to the item in store.

MFT You Are the Sweetest

So I'm trying to share more of my makes here on my blog. I share on Instagram a lot these days and don't always get the time to share here too, so I'm trying to be better. Hopefully over the next month I will get a chance to share some of the cards I've already shared to IG but didn't get to share here.

This is a card using several techniques. Stamping and embossing, watercolouring with Zig markers and also stacked camouflage die-cutting. I've listed the products I used at the end of my post. No links but you can type them into Google and see who stocks what.

Whimsy Stamps DT - Fairy and Puppy


I have a simple layered card to share with you today using the cute and pretty Fairy and Puppy from Whimsy Stamps.

I coloured this one all in Distress Ink markers as a bit of a change from Zigs and used some layers of patterned papers from my stash to match the colours to. 
This aren't at all my 'usual' colour choices but I love them and I actually think they suit the stamp very well.

The sentiment is from the the clear stamp set Polka Dot Fun which has a great selection of simple sentiments that don't take up heaps of room and are great on little 'badges'.

I've listed the products available in the Whimsy Store at the end of my post, along with links to take you directly to the items, just click on the pictures.
