Friends Always

Whimsy Stamps included a fabulous lattice background stamp and coordinating Background Buddies stamps in the newest release (links at the bottom of the post).  I used the butterfly buddy stamp at each intersection on the lattice.  Love, love, love how this turned out!


I heat embossed the stamping with white embossing powder, the sentiment was stamped onto vellum then mounted onto a piece of plain kraft card to help it pop off the card.  I used a set of stitched dies I picked up from Ebay last year to make the base and layer of the card.  I think the stitching works really well with the lattice.
A few mulberry flowers and some die cut leaves and job done.

Fairy Wishes

I’m loving the Fairies that Whimsy Stamps have released this month and …. hint, hint ……. there are more of these beauties to come! 

Today’s card features Fairy Wishes, with the sentiment from the You’re My Always sentiment stamp set.  Can you say cute??


I coloured the little sweetie with Copic Markers, which Whimsy Stamps are now stocking.

Fairy Friends

Day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps January release, and today it’s all about the fairies!  Love love LOVE these little sweeties and was over the moon happy that Whimsy Stamps are now going to be stocking them in foam mounted red rubber.  There are three that have been released this month, but do keep yer eyes peeled because there is so much more goodness to come.


I coloured the image with copics:

Pink: R83, 81, RV000, 0000

Bunny & Bells: C3, 1, 000, 0000


I added some Ranger Distress Glitter to the wings, wand and bells.  Oh and the flowers too.


I die cut some glitter stars and leaves to add a bit more sparkle, because … bling!  The sentiment is from the January CAS (Customer Appreciation Stamps program)


I have more fairy cards that I’ll be sharing in the coming weeks.

Fun with Twinkling H2O’s

Happy New Year!  I truly hope 2018 is going to be our best year yet (I know, I say it every year but we gotta live in hope, right? lol)

It’s new release time at Whimsy Stamps and there’s a smorgasbord to choose from this month – from the sweetest new fairies, background stamps and fun stencils as well as sentiment sets and super cute images ……. can you say penguin?!?  So pop on over to the website to take a peek.  I’ve linked the products used at the end of the post.

I’ll be featuring one of the fairies tomorrow, but for now I’ve make a jewel toned card using of of the new stencils, a new set of sentiment stamps and I even dug out and blew off the dust of my Twinkling H2O’s to make the background for my card.  Go me!

I started off the background with embossing paste through the Flower Flourish stencil, poured over gold embossing powder whilst the paste was still wet and set it aside to dry for a couple hours.  Only then did I heat emboss it to set the powder, this way the paste was already dry so didn’t bubble up.  Then I set to with three Twinkling H2O colours and had fun.  I used to love getting inky but somehow over the years lost sight of this once I started in with copic markers.  I’m so glad I now have the time to do this more often.

I finished off the card with some mulberry flowers and a sentiment from the You’re My Always stamp set which I mounted behind a clay frame.

The last one … promise! And a video too

Okay, so I told porkies in my previous post.  This card is definitely my last Christmas card for 2017 and I’ve done a video to go with it too.  This card is similar to the Blue Christmas card I did a few weeks back.  I had a fair few requests asking if I would shoot a video to show how I put it together so here’s what I came up with.


I’ve used more of the exquisite digital papers from Whimsy Stamps that’ve been designed by Tracy.  Love, love, love this gorgeous shabby patterns.  I’ll pop the links to the products and also the video at the end of the post. 

I went with a poinsettia and some mini roses for this card rather than the hellebore so both cards weren’t identical.  There are videos on my channel for the Poinsettia tutorial and also the Easy Foamiran Roses tutorial.


I also changed up the sentiment and used one of my all time favourite sentiment and die sets – The Happy Sayings Die and coordinating stamp set.


Lots of glitter on this one.  I really do love making Christmas cards, total glitter overload lol.


And here’s the video

Now I’m definitely signing out for a few days, have a wonderful Christmas!
