Happy Birthday Old Geezer - Whimsy Stamps New Mini Release

Hello Crafty Friends! It's March1st and that means Whimsy is releasing new Quick Card Fronts! Old Fart Grandma and Old Fart Grandpa are they called this month. In addition there is a clear stamp set called Old Fartness and a complementing Word and Shadow Die set Old Fart Geezer.

Here is my creation using the Old Fartness stamp together with the Old Fart Geezer Word and Shadow Die set. I got creative and used the stamp for a birthday card a little bit differently than intended I guess 😉

I created the background for my card with Distress Oxide inks and the 'ink-smooshing' technique. The image was colored with alcohol markers. The balloons, cake and stamped sentiment are from recently released sets (see below in link list). The black frame was cut out using two dies from the Extreme Postage nested die set.

Enjoy - Have a cool day!

Hi Everyone! Here are two more of my Whimsy creations using products from an earlier release in  January.

On this one I used the super adorable Donkey Love clear stamp set with matching outline dies. I combined it with the Polaroid and Fun with Words 1 dies and the BG is from the 6x6 Chocolate Caramel Coffee paper set. The image was water colored with Stabilo Pen 68 brush markers and the background behind the image was inked with seedless preserves distress ink. A few sequins and crystals finish off my card.

On my second card I combined the fun Polar Bear Birthday clear stamp set again with the Polaroid die. The image was again colored with Stabilo Pen 68 brush markers. In addition I used the elegant Snowflakes Border die  to add some wintery flair to my card. The BG paper is from the Blurry Flurries 6x6 pack. This time I used some confetti sequins from This Calls for Confetti to add finishing touches to my card.

Normal is Boring!

Hey folks! Here is a fun card I made with products from Whimsy Stamps February release. 

I stamped these cute NEW 'So Weird' animals with different colors of ink onto mixed media paper. I colored them and cut them out.
Then I used the Harlequin Stencil and a pink ink to create some texture on my card base.
I cut out the Weird-O frame from black cardstock. The dots that are included with the Weird-O frame set were cut out from shiny pink cardstock. The sentiment and frame are from the NEW Handmade Weirdo clear stamp set. I layered and glued all parts onto the front of my cardbase and used the shiny cut out dots as embellishments.

Yipee! - More January Release Inspiration!

Hi All! I have a fun card to share with you today! Again I used several products from January's release on my A2 sized creation. All new Whimsy products can be found HERE in the store.

The adorable image from Krista's NEW Polar Bear Birthday clear stamp set was colored with Stabilo Pen 68 waterbased markers (colors used: 11,46,47,49,58,59,87,95). I used the New Polaroid die as a frame to create a shaker element. This new die is very versatile and can be used as slimline die or it can be easily cut or folded and stacked. This way you do not have to die cut it several times. Just cut or fold on the score lines. Or just use one or more of the frames as singles. A real time saver!
The NEW Fun With Words die set coordinates perfectly with the NEW Polaroid die.
For my background panel I used a sheet of the previously released Blurry Flurries 6x6 paper pack and cut it out using the also previously released Extreme Postage die set.
The shaker card filling is from This Calls For Confetti!

For my Valentine!

Hello crafty friends! I am back here on my blog after a short brake. I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and a good start into the new year!
Isn't it crazy that we are half into January already? A new year, also means a new Whimsy release schedule. We are now having a release once a month each month on the 15th. Our very popular Quick Card Fronts will be released on the 1st of each month.

So and without further ado here is my first card inspiration for you using several of the new released products. All new products used for my card are available in the store HERE!

I used an A2 sized top-folded white card base for my new release creation. The BG paper is a sheet of the NEW 6x6 Chocolate Caramel Coffee paper pack. I then used a die from a previous release, called Loopidoos 2, to create another layer before adding my focal point images. 
The cupcake is cut out using the NEW Cupcake die set. The super cute Donkey is from Crissy's new clear stamp set NEW Donkey Love
I colored the image using Derwent Chroma Flow pencils (on Strathmore Mixed Media paper). 
The sentiment which is included with the clear stamp set was stamped onto white heavy cardstock and cut out using the NEW Quick Stacks 1 die set. I cut the sentiment strips apart after die cutting and layered them on top of each other for a 3D look. Instead of cutting you can also fan fold them. They already have score lines after die cutting. Using a bone folder helps to get crisp edges when folding. I personally prefer the cut and layer technique. 
There are also some small heart stamps included in the donkey Love set. I used these to add texture on my background panel and sentiment strip. A few matching pink confetti sequins and crystals from This Calls for Confetti finish off my card.

Here is a link list for all Whimsy Stamps products used on my card:

Merry Claw-mas - Whimsy Stamps October 10th Release

Hey Crafty Friends! Here is a Christmas card I made with products from Whimsy Stamps October 10th release!

On my slimline card I used the NEW Santa Claws clear stamp set illustrated by Dustin Pike together with the NEW Slimline Banner die. I colored the images with Stabilo 68 water based brush markers and cut them out them with the coordinating outline dies which are available separately. The slimline banner die was die cut from gold and white glitter paper and layered on top of each other.
The stars I've added are actually leftovers from another card I did last month and where laying around on my craft desk. I inked them up with matching gold yellow colors and sprinkled them with golden paint. The background paper I used is from the Slimline Champagne paper pack. My sentiment is a combination of the Merry large word die together with the word Claws-Mas that is included in Santa Claws set. To create some texture I've added Stardust Stickles and 3D Gloss to the images and some Confetti Sequins from This Calls For Confetti

Ho Ho Ho - Whimsy Stamps

Hi Friends! Are you working on your Christmas cards already? This is number 2 for me of this years Christmas cards. It's hard to think Christmas while it still has Summer temps.😂 But I couldn't resist these cute Gingerbread Emojis from Whimsy Stamps earlier releases this month.

While looking at this cute NEW Gingerbread Emojis stamp set and the also NEW Twinkle Swirl die I knew instantly that this has to become a shaker card! So I added the earlier released 3 in 1 Mitered Frames die and made my own shaker mix with several products from This Calls For Confetti.
Images were colored using Ohuhu markers.
