Speckled Heart in Bling!

Whimsy Stamps released the Speckled Heart stencil this month, so I decided to go BLING using embossing ink and powder instead of paste and used sentiments from the new You’re too Kind stamp set.  I think I kinda got the bling down pat lol,

I started off by applying the ink pad direct to paper through the stencil, then sprinkled over the embossing powder and heat set.  I used a glittery EP and the sparkle IRL is fabulous!  Once I'd heat set it I die cut the layer using the Notched Squares Die set.

I made with some foamiran flowers using the Peony Flower Die Set, glitter card and vellum leaves and some clear acrylic drops.

I stamped and heat embossed the friend sentiment onto vellum and stuck this down (the bold lettering makes the perfect hiding spot for the glue.)  On another note, HOW??  How the heck can two photos taken seconds after each other in the same place, same lighting, etc come out in two different tones?  How?  I really wanna know because this camera is doing my old head in!

So, we go from dull as dishwater picture above to sparkly and shiny below.  I really don’t get it.

Angel Celeste

I’m back with another new release card, this is Angel Celeste.  Isn’t she just a little poppet?  She’s part of the Whimsy Stamps January release and is available now in the Whimsy Stamps store.

Hair: E57,55,53,51,50
Skin: E04,11,00,000,R20
Wings: BV20,C3,C0

Stars: Y28,YR23,Y11

I used the Notched Squares die set to die cut the card base and layers.  Love this shape.

Ugh, the colour isn't very good on the next shot, as soon as I change the angle of the camera it has a doofer fit sigh.

I think the papers are Maja Design, all I know is I’ve had them for years, been saving them for something …. what?  I have no clue lol.

Happy New Year and new Whimsy Stamps goodies

Happy New Year to all the lovely people that stop by here,  I truly hope that 2019 is going to be wonderful for us all. 

So, the beginning of the month sees Whimsy Stamps launch some fabulous new goodies – hmm I have a New theme going on here today, ha!  I’ve used the Buffalo Plaid Background Stamp.  Oh my goodness, it’s ah-may-zing!  All that detail stamps to perfection and I’ve even heat embossed it on another card and every one of those super fine lines shows perfect detail.  I used Memento London Fog ink on pale grey card for today’s card.

bev-rochester-whiimsy-stamps-buffalo-plaid-thanks-word-die-set

I love the pop of red on this one.  I die cut the Thanks Word and Shadow Die set from red and white card and popped the die cut up with some foam tape on top of a doily die cut that I chopped in half.  I added the “so much” from the new You’re too kind stamp set  and then die cut that using the fabulous new Quick Strips Die Set.  This set is going to be one I use over and over, it’s brilliant for quick sentiments.

A bit of silver trim and some silver pearls and a strip of the excess stamped background for the inside of the card and I called this one done.

Last card for 2018

Just popping on to share my last card for 2018, and it’s also the last of the quick and simple ones I did on the run up to Christmas.  This one was soooo easy, I even surprised myself haha.  A digital sentiment from the digital Christmas Sentiments (which comes in black, red, gold and silver), some digital paper from The Lovely Studio and some die cut leaves.  Grey, silver and white was definitely my colours for this Christmas season, I simply adore these colours together.

More merry wishes

Phew, what a week!  I’m all sorted for Christmas now though after the day I had battling the traffic, road works, crowds and ragey shoppers if I’ve forgotten anything then too darn bad.  All this ridiculous hoopla for one day …. I just don’t get it.  I saw two old biddies about to bash each other over a packet of stuffing.  Seriously, no jokes.  I gave them a wide berth, I can tell you haha.

When I coloured the image for this card I coloured it twice (I’m all about making as many cards as I can at Christmas lol) so although the colours are the same I think using the dark red Nordic paper changed the image up a fair bit from the other card.  I also used white and gold paper flowers instead of the red flowers, the red paper sets them off beautifully.

I used one of my new digital Christmas Sentiments (which comes in black, red, gold and silver) and cut it into a banner.

Merry Wishes was coloured with copic markers:

Skin: E04, 11, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E27
Fur and skirt: W3, 1,0, 00
Red: R39, 37, 35, 32
Green: BG99, G28, 24, 21
Gold: Y28, YR23, Y13

I used watercolour paper and glitter paper to make the poinsettias (using my Lily Flower die set) and I used tiny gold jingle bells for the centres.  I used a little Christmas Light button that I bought here in the UK, Whimsy Stamps has very similar buttons here
