Moose Tangle

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.

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.

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.

~Copics~
Grays:  W3/2/1/0/00/BV23
Pinks:  RV00/000/0000
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.

Tidings of Joy2

I added the following flowers from I Am Roses:
R2-518 – Mini Variegated White – Soft Pink Paper Flowers
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

Pumpkin Kitty

Hello everyone!

Squeeeeee…it’s new release time again at Whimsy Stamps.  My inspiration today came from the Build-a-Pumpkin Die Set, the Falling Leaves Background stamp, and the Dracula Going Batty Die Set.

I had so much fun being a little creative with this die cut.  I tried my hand at a little cat face drawing and turned this pumpkin into a pumpkin kitty….I LOVE how it turned out!!

Pumpkin Kitty

I die cut this pumpkin shape on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Oranges:  E19/YR18/YR15/Y38/Y17/Y18/YR12

Nose:  W8/7/6/5
Stem:  E27/57/55/53/31, G94/YG03/YG01

Pumpkin Kitty2

I stamped the background with the Falling Leaves Background stamp.  I chose to keep it black and white as the pumpkin is pretty bright.  I added a little black and white stripe paper from My Favorite Things to the bottom, and a few bats from the Dracula Going Batty Die Set.

Pumpkin Kitty1

The sentiment was created with stamps from the Going Batty Stamp Set.  Once I had it stamped, I die cut it out with the Quick Strips Die Set.

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