I’m. So. Excited!! Here’s the set of Peony flower diesI designed forWhimsy Stamps that are now released!! I’m giving a set away so scroll down to the bottom of the post.
And heres the card I made to show using only the dies from this set to make three different types of flowers.
The flowers are made from white Foamiran which, once coloured with pigment/chalk inks and gently heated made for such a pretty display. The leaves are also from the die set and are cut from patterened paper.
I’m back with two cards featuring stamps from the Whimsy Stamps May release. I don’t think I’ve seen stamps specifically aimed at sympathy cards for the loss of a pet, these are very different from the run of the mill.
I kept the cards simple, although I did manage to sneak flowers on the first one! I used theRainbow Bridge stamp set for this card.
The focal point was really easy to create, I stamped the bridge onto watercolour paper with Weathered Wood distress ink then lightly spread the colour with a damp paintbrush to give a watercolour effect. I added some grass detail using a distress ink marker.
My second card is a total and unashamed case of a few cards and ideas I saw on Pinterest. I’ve used the Fur Ever In Our Hearts stamp set for this one.
I glittered the layers of the wings with Distress Glitter. The bone tag is a template I got off the internet, I painted that and the heart with silver paint and once try stamped on them with Stazon ink.
Pop back tomorrow for another card featuring the Peony Die Set that I designed. I’ll be doing a give away for that die set tomorrow as well.
We are releasing new red rubber images, clear stamp sets and dies. Everything is available here, so do pop across to see all of the new stamping goodness.
I have two die sets to give away this week, the first one is a doggy themed one so scroll down to the end of the post to see the set. To enter (open to all), just leave a comment and I will draw a winner on Friday.
My card today is male themed – I shy away from making cards for blokes, I need my flowers lol. But I had such fun with this one, I love a challenge! I think for me, the secret to blokey cards seeing as I can’t overload on the flowers is to use layers to add interest, which I did with this card. I started off by stamping the stitched border from the In Stitches stamp set around the bottom layer of paper, then added the wire effect stamp from the Lovely Lavender stamp set. I then layered up a banner with a strip of measuring tape ribbon wrapped around. I hit up the stitching stamp again on this layer. I thn stamped the sentiment from the new For the Men stamp set, and finished off with some stars die cut from thePierced Stars die set. A few screw brads and a little fob watch and job done.
And here’s a pic of the first give away of the week
As I said, just leave a comment to be in the draw.
