Whimsy Stamps Holly Jolly

Hey Everyone! Here it is - my first Christmas creation for this season! Whimsy Stamps most recent release hit the store shelves just a few days ago and this is one of the new Christmas sets. Click HERE to check it out!


I used images from the NEW Holly Jolly clear stamp set as my focal image. I created the background by adding ink and on top I've added texture paste using the Harlequin stencil. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment white on black cardstock. I then cut it out using the Elegant Ornament die. A few white paint splatters and red sequins finish off my card.

Harlequin Stencil

Hey Peeps! I have another card I want to share with you today. It is a mixed media style card where I use the NEW Harlequin Stencil from Whimsy Stamps in combination with other recently released products.



To create my background I used the NEW Harlequin Stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Carved Pumpkin and Seedles Preserves. I added more texture to my BG using the Mixed Media Bits clear stamp set and pigment ink in gray, black and gold as well as red distress crayons. More details were added with a gold, black and white paint pen.

Whimsy Stamps New Product Launch - NoFuss Masks

Hi Crafty Friends! Whimsy Stamps is releasing a new product today - NOFUSS MASKS! How awesome is this?! Calling all the 'fussy-cutting-haters' πŸ˜„. This is going to be such a time saver, even if you don't mind fussy cutting, like I do. Now you can get all the cool looks that can be done with masking without the fuss! 
They are available at the moment for 10 stamp sets but there is more to come! Each set contains 4 sheets of repositionable stamp image masks. Say goodbye to fussy cutting and hello to Whimsy Stamps NoFuss Masks. 





Here I have some inspiration on how you can use these NEW NoFuss Masks:


I used several images of the Halloween Night clear stamp set and created this scene using the NoFuss Masks. After stamping all my images I left the masks on and started ink blending the background. 

I did heavy blending with Distress Oxide-Inks and I was not careful at all. Usually my favorite paper for ink blending would be either mixed media cardstock or smooth Bristol cardstock. Because I wanted to color my images with alcohol markers I decided on Hammermill paper to create my scene. So I had to ink blend on Hammermill paper.

Even though HM paper is very smooth the ink does not blend as well as on my other favorite cardstock. It works but takes some effort to get a smooth blend. Therefore I really did a lot of ink blending for my background going back and forth between all the colors. 

At first I was concerned about the masks. Could they handle all the blending with my brushes, would the edges start to peel back and curl up? I had this happen before with other masking paper! 
What can I say? They did NOT! They stayed put perfectly, did not budge and the edges did not curl up! Just perfect! I am really impressed and can not recommend them enough. 

If you shied away from creating stamped scenes or creating ink blended backgrounds around stamped images in the past because of masks - you won't anymore! It is such a time saver!

I highly recommend you try them for yourself. You will be as impressed and excited about them as I am!

Grumpin Punkin!

Hello Friends! Another Whimsy Stamps Halloween release just hit the shelves a few days ago! Here is my inspiration using the NEW Grumpin Punkins stamp set.



I colored the pumpkins using alcohol markers and then fussy cut them. I combined the NEW Grumpin Punkins with the Connected Bubbles die and made one of the bubbles a shaker element.
The shaker bubble and filling for the shaker element is made using several products from This Calls for Confetti. The round shaker pouch from TCFC fits perfectly in the bubble from the Connected Bubbles die!
I decorated my card using bats from the Batty die set and small pumpkins from the Pumpkins and Mini Jacks die set (cut from glitter cardstock). 
I also added texture using cheese cloth pieces which I dyed with distress inks to fit my color scheme.

Lets Get Spooky in the Haunted House

Hello to all my Halloween Friends! Whimsy's newest Halloween release just hit the shelves and I have tow cards to share today.

On my first creation I combined the NEW Exquisite Lace, NEW Exquisite Beauty, NEW Home Sweet Haunted Home and NEW Harlequin stencil on a mixed media style card. These new stamps and stencil are just perfect for mixed media creations. In addition to the new products I also used earlier released dies: Treasure Map die set and Bookmark and Tags die set.

Here is a quick How-To:

I die cut the treasure map from kraft cardstock to use it as a background panel. I also die cut it 3 three times from thick cardstock and layered it to make it nice and sturdy. I then stamped the lace images onto the kraft treasure map panel, the smaller lace onto an extra piece of kraft cardstock. The moth was stamped onto purple cardstock and cut out. I distressed all pieces with tea dye and seedless preserves Distress Oxide Ink as well as white pigment ink. In addition to the lace on the treasure map panel I also added texture using the Harlequin stencil and Versamark Dazzle Frost ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment was also stamped onto kraft cardstock and cut out with a tag die from the Bookmarks and Tags die set. I also added some black and white splatters. I used acrylic paint to do these. I assembled my card using liquid glue and foam dots/squares. For a finishing touch I added confetti and crystals from This Calls For Confetti.



My second card showcases the earlier released Bookeh 6x6 papers and NEW Home Sweet Haunted Home clear stamp set together with the NEW Pumpkin & Mini Jacks die set. These awesome papers together with these sentiment stamps and mini jacks dies make for a fast and spooky card.

Hugs & Kisses & Halloween Wishes

Hello Crafty Friends. I can't believe it's this time of the year already where we start with our Halloween creations @ Whimsy Stamps. Yesterday Whimsy released the first batch of its Halloween products. Of course over the next several weeks there will be more and we have sweet and also creepy Halloween products for you! So keep your eyes peeled for more Halloween fun to come!



My first Halloween creation for this season is on the cute side. I used the adorable Halloween Night stamp set illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. My friend Crissy draws the most adorable Halloween images.  I combined it with the New Nested Web die set and New Batty die set. The papers are from the also newly released Bookeh 6x6 paper pack. I made a shaker out of the web die and filled with the polymer clay Halloween Night mix from This Calls For Confetti. Links to all products used can be found below. I colored the cute images with my Stabilo 68 pens and a waterbrush.
