Whimsy Stamps December Release Countdown Day 3


It's almost time for our December release and today I have a cute spinner card for you featuring the Cupid Cutie.

To make the spinner card I stamped the image onto some Bristol Smooth paper and stamped again using a mirror image stamp. Then I coloured both images with my Zig Markers, cut them out and glued them together back to back with a piece of clear thread in between.

I cut a circle aperture in both my panel and card base and used the hearts stamp in the set to stamp around the edges of my circle in pink ink and stamped love also in pink ink at the bottom of the card.

I glued my panel to my base card, sandwiching the thread in between the layers with strong tape. I ink blended a sky on the panel for inside the card, and stamped the sentiment 'Love is in the air' as the bottom.
I finished the card with a few gems from Lucy's Little Things.

Links will be added for new products once the release goes live.

Whimsy Stamps December Countdown Day 1


It's time to start counting down to the December release from Whimsy Stamps. 

Today my card is showcasing the Crazy for Chocolate stamp set and matching dies.

I stamped and heat embossed in white, all 4 of the individual chocolates from this stamp set. After colouring them with my Zig markers I cut them out with the matching dies.

I did some ink smooshing on some watercolour cardstock with a variety of pink dye inks and cut out my panel. Once completely dry I stamped a sentiment from the set in black ink at the bottom of my panel added a couple of strips of glitter tape above and then popped up my 4 chocolates on some foam tape above that.

I mounted my panel onto my card base with some strips of patterned paper behind.

I didn't add any additional embellishments as the glitter tape gave it enough sparkle.

The following sets will be available to buy in the Whimsy Store on the 7th December.

Whimsy - Winter Cheer


I'm sharing a couple of bright and simple Christmas cards today made with the Snow Flurry Stamp Set and matching dies. 
To make this card I first cut a panel of Bristol Smooth paper and did a little ink blending with Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry, sprinkling some drops of water and blotting. 

The snowflake was made by stamping with versamark ink on some Limelight Card Stock and heat embossing with white embossing powder and then cutting out with the matching die. 
I stamped a sentiment from the Abstract Christmas stamp set on Limelight Card Stock and heat embossed that also, then cut out with a banner die.

I made an A2 card base from Razzle Berry Card stock, and adhered my panel, then popped up my snowflake and sentiment on the top with some foam tape. I finished with a few jewels from Little Things by Lucy's Cards 

For my second card I did exactly the same as for the first card, just changing the colour of ink and cardstock and making a horizontal card rather than a vertical one.

These cards were so quick and simple to make you could always make a batch of them to cover your Christmas needs and even keep them individual just by changing up the colours/orientation like I did with these two.
