CC Designs ~ Joy

Welcome everyone!

I have another project to share with you from CC Designs October new release.  This sweet little face all dressed up in her reindeer suit is just simply too cute to resist!!

This adorable stamp set is called ‘Christmas Cuties‘…and I actually colored them all!  I will use the rest of them for Christmas tags for my grandchildren.

Joy

I stamped this sweetie on X-Press It Blending and colored her with the following markers.

Hair:  E57/55/53/30
Horns:  E42/41/40/W3
Costume:  E33/31/53/30

Joy2

I used the coordinating ‘Christmas Cuties Outline Dies‘ to cut out the little reindeer, and cut out the J and the Y with the ‘Olive You Alphabet & Number Dies‘.  The dies used behind her are from La-La Land Crafts.

The thin strip of red is just cardstock cut 1/8 inch wide and glued to the background.  I added foam tape behind the image and the letters for dimension…and of course a little red bling to the top to finish the card.

As always, there is an abundance of inspiration to be found in the store here.

Thank you so very much for stopping by!

Moose Tangle

This little sweetie was a ton of fussy cutting, but he was worth the work.  I love how you can see the background behind him.

I started with a 5″ square card base, adding a layer of blue print paper 4 7/8″ square.  To this I popped up a 4 3/4″ square of the Christmas letter paper which I die cut a circle out of the center with the Stitched and Pierced Circle Die Set.  I popped this up with a single layer of foam tape.  Once that was all assembled I popped up cutie patootie Moose with two layers of foam tape.

Whimsy Stamp’s World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop

World Card Making DayHappy World Cardmaking Day!  I am so glad you joined all of us at Whimsy Stamps for this amazing day of sharing our handcrafted projects with you all.

Image may contain: text

World Cardmaking Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the art of handmade cards – whether made with construction paper and crayons or with more sophisticated supplies. As we crafters can all agree, a store-bought card, while nice, just can’t replace the personal and thoughtful nature of one made by hand. Today, the Whimsy Design Teams are honoring this craft with two hops – one here and another on Instagram. For each hop Whimsy Stamps is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the store. To increase your chances of winning, be sure to leave a comment on each stop of the hop. All comments must be left by midnight EST on Saturday, October 12th. One winner will be randomly-chosen from each hop, and both winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Sunday, October 13th.

 

The card I have to share with you today is using the adorable Penguin Trick or Treaters Rubber Cling Stamp coupled with the Notched Rectangles Die Set.

Not many people know that Penguins are my favorite animal.  I SO wish I could have one as a pet…lol!  This little trio is just simply adorable all dressed up for a night of trick or treating!

Penguin Trick or Treaters

I drew in the detail on the little pirates treat bag with the markers that I used to color other parts of the stamp.  I hand wrote the word BOO on his bag when I was done with the design.

I die cut the image with the Notched Rectangle Die Set and matted it with black paper before adhering it to the card with foam tape.  Orange rhinestones were added to the corners of the black for added interest.

C.C. Designs Preview Day 2: Tiny Christmas

Hello everyone!

We are on day 2 of Previews for the OCTOBER Release at C.C. Designs.  This month it’s all about Christmas …and it’s cuteness overload!! The release will be available for purchase this Thursday at 12pm CST.

Today I am previewing these little cuties from the Tiny Christmas clear stamp set and the matching Tiny Christmas Outline Dies.  I absolutely love this little set!

There will be 5 new stamp sets in the October release, an adorable Make A Reindeer Metal Die, a new Christmas Paper Pad, and some coordinating Christmas Enamel Dots.

Tiny Christmas

I started with stamping these little sweeties on X-Press It Blending Card with CC Designs Black Olive Ink.  Once I was done with all the coloring I die cut the images with the matching dies, setting them aside while I cut out and constructed the little treat bags.

Zombie Love

Hi everyone!

It’s new release time again at Whimsy Stamps.  I decided to take a little different twist to what normally comes to mind when you think of Zombies.  Since these hands from the Zombie-licious Clear Stamp Set are in the shape of a heart, I turned them into a love themed card.

Zombie Love2

I created the shaker element with the Shaker Maker Banner Die Set and some white tulle, adding different supplies for the shaker bits.  I added die cut leaves from the Leaf Foliage 2 Die Set and some flowers to the top of the shaker element to complete my card.
