Whimsy Magazine Project–Wee Stamp

Well, yesterday was a long day filled with lots of problems to keep me awake and on my toes.  But the best news of all was our Maddi had her spay surgery yesterday and it went really well.  The infection was totally clear so it was just a routine spay with not even the need for antbiotics – yayyy for Maddi.  I am so glad that is behind us now, and hopefully she can get back to her happy, bouncy self. 

I have nearly finished number 2 of 3 magazine commissions so still nothing new from me that you will not have seen elsewhere in a magazine but today’s card is extra special for me.  I was so so honoured to be asked to do a spread for the 4th issue of Whimsy Inspirations Magazine using some of my most favourite of stamps.  Now how can a girl say no firstly to the lovely Denise and secondly to working with Wee Stamps?  Not me, I nearly bit her hand off in my haste to say yes lol.  So here’s the first of 4 cards I did for my lil feature.  If you haven’t checked it out yet what are you waiting for?  It’s a free download crammed full of inspiration, tutorials and hours of reading.

Talk about working with some of my favourite products!!  Go Kreate Dies, Whimsy Wee Stamps, Whimsy sentiment stamps by the amazing Ann Vento, delish new Bildmalarna Papers from Dies to Die for, gorgeous flowers and lace (that got the acrylic paint treatment) from Wild Orchid Crafts, loads of glitter, my beloved copics and Prismacolors and I was in my element Smile

I am really sorry but this card was made so long ago I have no idea where I put the note with the colours on, but I think the adorable image makes up for the missing colours Winking smile

Delish lace and flowers after the acrylic paint treatment and a charm from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also applied paint to the edges of the papers.

I love Whimsy sentiments and matching dies, there is such a huge selection that there is a sentiment for everything.  This has to be my favourite sentiment from the latest release.

Recipe:

Stamps: Winter Fairy, Holiday Postage Stamps
Papers: Bildmalarna Christmas Tree Blue
Dies: Go Kreate XXL Frames set 6, Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs (snowflake), Whimsy Postage Stamp Die
Embellishments: All Wild Orchid Craftslace, 25mm wild roses, 15mm roses, liliesmetal embellishments charm.  The pearl hearts are from Hobbycraft as is the white acrylic paint.  The pearly dots around the image are just dabs of Liquid Pearls.

Phew and after that epic I am off to shower then hit the sack (yep I’m organised enough to schedule this one lol)

Hope you all have a fantabulous weekend

    So glad to hear that Maddi's op went well, Im not looking forward to our girls one as she had a really bad episode after her Xray, they had to put her out completely and she had a bad reaction to the anaesthetic and I thought Id lost her at one time, but shes ok now. hugs Shirleyxx She will need an op to have 6 dew clews removed and all the extra teeth as well as being spayed.

  38. Oh, Bev, this is just stunning- she is so sweet and I just adore the colours and the shaped card is most unusual. I'm almost tempted to get a Grand Calibur for those dies. I'm so pleased little Maddi is now on the mend.
