Whimsy Stamps 31 Nights of Halloween Celebration - Franken Monster Birthday

Hi everyone! I am back today with my second creation for Whimsy's  31 Nights of Halloween celebration over at the Whimsy Inspirations Blog ! There is still time to participate in our games to have the chance of winning some spooktacular prizes! Make sure you don't miss this! This time I have a birthday card to share using the awesome  'Franken Schmutz'  clear set by Deb Davis. I love this Franken monster, he is so cute. I also like that this set can be used for a variety of cards, it really is versatile! I decided to go with blue and violet colors and also include a little shaker circle. The background was made using Distress inks/crayons in tumbled glass, shaded lilac, wilted violet and seedless preserves. First I applied a color wash with Distress inks and let it dry. Then I used a Tim Holtz stencil (Bubble) and Distress Crayons to add some texture to my background. Some spritzers of water finish off the background. All the elements were stamped

Let it Snow

Happy Sunday Everyone! I am here today to share a clean and simple card using the Whimsy Snow Word & Snow Caps die set  and the Snow Flurry clear set both designed by  Deb Davis . I sponged a white panel of cardstock with different blues of Distress Oxide Inks. I then stamped some Snowflakes from the  Snow Flurry   clear set with Versamark ink onto the sponged card panel and embossed them with white and silver embossing powder. I also stamped some snowflakes in dark blue for a nice contrast. Using the word die from the  Whimsy Snow Word & Snow Caps die set  I cut out the word snow from my already inked and embossed panel. I also cut out the word snow from a sheet of white fun foam. I adhered the snowflake panel to my card front. Filling the die cut letters with the matching fun foam die cuts and on top of the fun foam I glued the die cut letters from the snowflake panel. Make sure the snowflakes line up nicely. I love the effect it gives with the word cut o

Santa Spinner Card & Mirror Stamping Video

Hello Crafty Peeps! Today I have a card to share which was one of my projects at the Whimsy Craft Retreat earlier this month. It is a spinner card which also involves mirror stamping. It's a really fun project and Whimsy Stamps has now mirror stamps in the store to buy. This super cute image, as well as the sentiment and background image are all from the Oh What Fun clear set by Deb Davis . In the video (scroll down) you will see the image from both sides. The sprinkles around the image were created using Brusho. I also added glitter for some sparkles. On the inside I've added snow texture paste and more glitter underneath the trees as well as on top of the trees. Here is a little video on how to mirror stamp to create the image I used on my spinner card. Whimsy supplies used:                Thanks for stopping by!
