I compel you .....

Hi everyone! It's time for some more Whimsy inspiration. Dracula I compel you is the name of the Stamp set I feature on my card today. To make the star shaker I used the Pierced Stars Die Set. I cut out a star frame from double sided tape using two of the star dies (the second and the third). I used the same two dies to cut out a matching frame from designer paper. The larger of the two star dies was used to die cut a star shape from an acetate sheet. I then adhered one side of the double sided tape star frame to my card stock. Filled it with sequins, stars etc., and adhered the acetate star shape. Using Rangers Multi Medium Matte I adhered the star paper frame on top of the acetate sheet. I stamped the Dracula image and cut it out with the matching die from the Dracula I Compel You Die Set. I colored the little Dracula with Copics. The sentiment is part of the Dracula I compel you stamp set and the word die 'Sparkle' as well as the cute littl

Is it Halloween yet?

Happy Sunday Everyone! As promised here is another card with an image from the new Whimsy release, Penguin Trick or Treaters - illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. I colored this cute trio with Prisma Premier pencils on kraft cardstock. The sentiment is from the Franken Bad Hair Day set and the doodles are from the FADoodles set. I kept it very clean and simple to show off this cute image. Only embellishments are a two sequins and a few dots in matching colors.

Day 3 of the Whimsy July Release

Hello to Day 3 of the Whimsy July Release ! I planned two cards today but will show you only one right now and will be back on the weekend instead with my second card :-D So make sure to stop by again in the next couple of days ;-) I love this clear set called Dracula Bite Me illustrated by Deb Davis. It makes great Halloween cards as well as really fun birthday cards. As I usually do not send out Halloween cards I made a birthday card. This set also coordinates with matching Dracula Bite Me die set . Background and coloring was done with Distress ink - markers and ink pads . The sentiment is from the set and the bats are dies from the matching die set.        Thanks for stopping by! Hugs,

Day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps July Release

Welcome to Day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps July Release.  I have again two cards to share with you today. First a 'bewitched' Halloween card featuring Teen Witch from the Krista Heij-Barber collection. Sentiment is from the NEW Simple Sentiments clear set by Jessie. The die cut bats are from the NEW Draculas Coffin die set . The papers I've used were all scraps. I have tons of scraps and made it a mission now to use my designer paper scraps when ever possible to diminish that huge pile. :-D I colored with Copics and tried to add some yellowish moonlight shine on the witch by adding yellow to my coloring. I also decorated the inside. I haven't done that in years I think but I had so much fun doing it again. I just love the completed look it gives a card. I also have matching DP on the back with my "made by" stamp. The only reason I stopped doing this on all my cards is because it is so time consuming. The stamped borders btw are from th

Whimsy Stamps July 2017 Rubber & Clear Release

It's here! The Whimsy Stamps July Rubber and Clear Release ! In stores now ! To celebrate this new release with lots of cute, fun and 'scary' images I have two cards to share today: Please meet NEW Mr. Mymmy . He is from the rubber collection and illustrated by Krista Heij Barber. Sentiment and and Candy are included with the stamp. The cute bats are die cut using the NEW Dracula Bite Me die set. Copics were used to color the image. My second card features NEW Paper Dolly Polly by Deb Davis/Amped2Stamp and the matching NEW Paper Polly Dolly die set . There are several outfits for Polly in the set and each can be cut out with matching dies. It is super fun to put this together! I colored her with Copics. The bee dress was stamped onto yellow mini polka dot designer paper and then I added some depth to it using colored pencils. I thought a shaker card would be perfect for this image :-). The sentiment is from the same set. Please join us
