Hunky Dory


I'm showcasing a couple of new products from the Whimsy Stamps August release on my card today.

For the background I used a rainbow of Distress Inks and the Teardrop Splash Stencil on a white panel and then stamped one of the large sentiments from the Cheeky Sentiments set, with Versamark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.

I stamped the smaller sentiments from the set on black card and embossed with white embossing powder.

After cutting my 2 panels, the larger on in black cardstock, I adhered to my card base and then attached my trimmed sentiments popped up on some narrow foam tape.

To finish my card I added some colourful enamel dots.

Purre Love - Whimsy Stamps


I hope you're enjoying the August release from Whimsy Stamps so far!  I'm away visiting family for the week of the release and a bit more so I'm hoping these scheduled posts go live at the right time lol!

Today I have a card made with the Clear Stamp set 'Purre Love'

I made a background with distress inks, masking a moon which I went back and coloured in with my Zig markers, to make a night sky which I cut into a panel a little smaller than my card base.

 I stamped my images onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine ink and coloured with my Zig markers and a size 2 watercolour brush, then I fussy cut my images and set them aside.

I cut some black cardstock with the grass edger dies and positioned them on my background popping the front one up with some foam tape.

I worked out where I wanted my main image positioned and then placed and stamped my sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used the Galaxy Star Stencil and some Nuvo paste to add some stars to my sky. I adhered the background to my base and then added my images.

Finally I added a few small star sequins to finish off.

Bloody Brilliant!


It's day 2 of Whimsy Stamps August release and today I'm showcasing a card made with the new Cheeky Sentiments Clear Stamp Set.

First I took a piece of watercolour paper and blended on some rainbow colours using Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet, and an ink blending tool.

I splashed some drops of water over and blotted, then once completely dry I used the large die from the Shaker Maker Rectangle set to emboss a pattern and trimmed the edges.  I mounted this directly to a black card base.
I used the same inks I had used on my background to stamp my large word on some plain white card and then stamped the 2 smaller words from my chosen sentiment above this with some Onyx Black Versafine ink. I cut my sentiment out with a small rectangle die from the Stitched Nested Rectangle set and then adhered this to a piece of black card and mounted this on my background with some craft foam to pop the whole thing up.

To finish off I added some colourful enamel dots.

I've added pictures and links to the products available in the Whimsy Stamps store, below.

Cloudy Day


Today I have a card for you where the focus is on the sentiment.

I used a few different Whimsy products on my card, all of which are linked at the end of my post, just click on the pics to go to the item in the store.

First I took a piece of yellow card, some yellow distress ink and the Sun Rays Stencil, and sponged the ink through the stencil with an ink blending tool. Once fully dry I used Versamark ink and white embossing powder to emboss my sentiment.

I cut 2 strips of white card with the Cloud Edger die before layering them on the top of the yellow card to frame the bottom of the sentiment.

I cut the whole thing out with one of the Stitched Ovals dies and blended a little blue distress ink on the bottom edges of the clouds. 

I took a panel of white cardstock and used the same oval to cut out the centre of the panel, and then adhered the panel to my white card base with foam tape. I then glued the yellow oval into the aperture in the card, flat to the card base.
I finished off with some clear Nuvo Drops to suggest raindrops.

Whimsy July Release - Fireworks Stencil


I have another quick card for you, this one uses the new Fireworks stencil from the July release at Whimsy Stamps, alongside the Celebrate die from the Word Dies Set and the Wavy Edgers Die Set.

First of all I inked a panel in a mixture of Faded Jeans darkened with a little Chipped Sapphire distress inks then sprinkled with a few drops of water and dried.
I used the Fireworks Stencil and some Nuvo Glimmer pastes to add my fireworks and once dry I cut the lower edge with the Edger Die. I cut another slightly larger piece of red card with the same die, to dit behind my background.

I used the celebrate die to cut out some silver glitter card and offset this on some red card stock cut with the same die. I glued everything to my white base card and then added some sparkly red Nuvo drops to finish. That's it!

Whimsy Stamps - July Release - Flower Puffs & Beaucoup Bouquet


We're kicking off the new July release over at Whimsy Stamps today and I have a simple card using 2 of the new products alongside alongisde a couple of older ones. 

This card looks complex but was really super simple to make.

First I stamped the Flower Puffs BG stamp onto some kraft card stock and shaded in the areas with a white pencil. Really quick and simple to do but gives a very effective result. You could just stamp and emboss with white embossing powder but then you wouldn't get the black outline which I quite liked here.

After shading, I cut out my panel using the larger of the 2 frames in the Shaker Maker Rectangle die set and then cut out an oval with the Stitched Oval die set, big enough to frame my sentiment.

I made a card base from black card stock and then I used my MISTI to line up on my sentiment in the middle of the oval, stamping with Versamak ink and embossing with white embossing powder.

I then glued my panel and frame to the card base, popping up my frame with some shallow foam tape and finished the whole thing with some sequins.

I've linked all my Whimsy products at the end of my post.

Whimsy Stamps - Waving Hello


I hope everyone is keeping well and if you are in the UK I hope you're enjoying the sunny weather we've been having lately. I must admit it's a shock to actually be getting a summer this year (while it lasts), but the humidity has been getting to me a little. My asthma does not like the heavy weather much at all at the moment, but it's so nice to see the sun I won't complain too much. other news, my card today uses the Splash clear stamp set from the June release that I used a couple of weeks ago. This time I've made a completely different style of card. I stamped my images with Versamark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder, stamping the boat separately from the background.

I water coloured the background and boat with my Zig markers, fussy cut the boat, cut into the waves with my craft knife and inserted the boat so it's sitting among the waves, rather than on the top, gluing it firmly to the background.

I then cut out a panel of wood panelled patterned paper, and cut a circle from the centre, adding some acetate to the back. I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set underneath the circle with black Versafine ink. 
I added foam tape around the circle for the shaker portion and then more foam tape to pop up the rest of the panel.

I glued the background panel to my card base, added some sequins to the centre and added my wood patterned panel on top, centred on my card base and background panel.

Finally I cut a circle frame using the Shaker Combo Die Set, in silver mirri card and glued that around my aperture, adding some little screw embellishments to make it look a bit like a port hole on a ship.

I do hope you like my card for today, all items can be found using the links below, just click on the pics to take you directly to the items in the store.
