Tidings of Joy

Hello everyone!

Can we say ADORABLE??…it’s new release time again at Whimsy Stamps.  My inspiration today came from the super adorable Ellie’s Bauble rubber stamp.  I completely fell in love with this little sweetie!!

Tidings of Joy

As always, I stamped this little sweetie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following copic markers.

Purples:  BV04/02/01/000/0000/RV000

Tidings of Joy1

I created a shaker element with the Pierced and Stitched Circle Die Set and lots of clear sparkly shaker bits from my stash.  I fussy cut out Ellie and attached her to the front of the completed element.  I die cut two leaf sets from the Peony Flower Die.  The one on the left side of the card was cut apart (right leaf only).  The set of two leaves was attached to the main card and the right leaf was attached on top of the shaker element before attaching the thread and flowers.

I heat embossed the Lots of Dots Background stamp to the white border at the bottom with white embossing powder.  It is hard to see in photographs, but it is really pretty in person.  I also added white flower soft to the fuzzy parts of her hat, and sparkly bling to the centers of the snowflakes.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Mini Sentiments clear stamp set.

I added the following flowers from I Am Roses:

T1-2 – Soft Pink Mini Artificial Paper Crafts Rosebuds
R2-426 – Mini Mixed Rainbow Pastel color Paper Flowers
S10-15 – White Small Craft Paper Flowers

Batty for you

Good morning!

How fun are these adorable bats from Whimsy Stamps new release?  These little cuties are from the Going Batty Clear Stamp set.  These handsome little dudes have been busy taking flying lessons and one of them took a wrong turn.  He is hoping his little bottle of elixir will help him feel better.

I created this fun shaker card with the new Wonky Window 2 Die and the Messy Mesh Background Rubber Stamp.  I only used the center two windows for the actual shaker part, leaving the top and bottom portion for the image and sentiment.  The adorable little bat was attached to the card after it was finished.

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

My card base is  a top folding A2 size card with lots of layers added on top.  I had so much fun creating the double shaker elements to this card.  I used two layers of craft foam in place of foam tape so the little shaker bits didn’t stick.

The green and white layer was stamped with the Scratchy Plaid Background stamp.  The rest of the paper is from my stash.

Hello and good morning!

I am back again today with another gorgeous mermaid from Whimsy Stamp’s July new release collection.  This little mermaid with her super fun little fish balloons is beyond adorable!!  She is one of the adorable mermaids in the Mermaid Birthday Clear Stamp Set.  I couldn’t resist…I had to color my very first pink hair…lol

I stamped this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card, colored her with the following Copic Sketch Markers, and fussy cut her out.

Shellebrate2

I started with a 4″ square white card base, added a white layer that was 3 7/8″ square, and a pink layer that was 3 3/4″ square.

For the inside piece of the shaker element, I inked up a piece of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, added the Shellebrate sentiment from the same stamp set, and cut it into a circle.

Shellebrate3

To create the outside circle frame, I taped two of the circle dies together with purple tape; and then while they were taped together, I cut the frame out of the starfish print paper.  I then cut two more of the circle frames out of white craft foam.   I cut one plain circle shape of clear acetate.  I taped the clear acetate to the back of the starfish frame with Scor-Tape 1/4 inch.  I used the same tape to adhere the two layers of foam tape to the back of the same piece.  Once I had the shaker bits in the center of the blue sentiment circle, (keeping still so I didn’t lose any of the pretties), I then taped it down to the actual card.

The paper is from Echo Park- Let’s Be Mermaids.

It’s your Birthday!

Hello everyone!

I am back today sharing some gorgeousness!!  Today’s project was designed with Whimsy Stamp’s new Birthday Word and Shadow Die Set and the Your Birthday Clear Stamps set.  These sets are perfect for all types of cards!  This card will be given to my mother in-law…it’s her birthday today!!

It's-Your-Birthday

It seems weird that I didn’t do any coloring on this card, but it turned out absolutely gorgeous!

It's-Your-Birthday1

I used two of the rectangle dies from the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies.  I taped the two together with Purple Tape on the backside of the dies making sure they stayed together while die-cutting the paper.  I also cut two layers out of white craft foam while the two were taped together.

It's-your-Birthday2

I cut the word die three times and glued them all together to make it look dimensional before gluing it on the frame.  I used bling for the dot in the letter I.

The paper is from my stash, and the flowers are from I Am Roses.

As always, you can find an abundance of gorgeous inspiration images for sale here.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
