Oh man, I love these wee Gnomies that were released by Whimsy Stamps this month.  Too stinking cute and such a pleasure to colour.

I die cut the white base layer using the delish Zig-Zag Stitched Rectangle Die set, then stamped out the grass from the Create a Scene Beach stamp set using bundled sage distress ink.

I stamped out the Gnomies and mushrooms on to some white card and coloured them with copic markers before fussy cutting them out to pop them up on some 3D foam pads.  Did I say I LOVE these cuties?!?

I die cut a wedge shape from patterned paper using the Envelope Edger Die set and matted this on to some red card.  And finished this all off with a the Celebrate Word and Shadow Die set in red and white

Happy Place, Fathers Day

I struggle with cards for blokes, I really do but this new stamp set - Happy Place - from Whimsy Stamps was just what I needed to get a quick Dad's day card made.

I die cut the fabulous Checker Board Background Die from wood effect paper which I popped on to white card stock with some 3D foam for a bit of dimension.  I coloured the stamp with copic markers then hit it up with some Wink of Stella (because even blokes need bling, right?) and finished off with a sky background with tumbled glass distress ink and a digital sentiment from the Father's Day Digital Sentiments set

Stretchy Ostrich!

Back with another card for the Whimsy Stamps June release using the super fun Stretchy Ostrich rubber cling stamp.  Seriously, how cool is this bird?!?  

I loved colouring this one, so quick and easy with minimal copic colours:

C00, 0, 1, 3 for the light feathers
C3, 5, 7 9 for the dark feathers
R22, 20, 30 for the feet, neck and face
YR16, 31, 30 for the beak
YR31, 30 for the champers

I used the Teardrop Splash Stencil to ink a pale pink background for the ostrich, and finished off with a sentiment from the  Everyday Mini Sentiments Stamp set, a scrap of black paper and some sequins.

B is for Boy

It's that time of the month again where Whimsy Stamps  reveal their new release, and once again it's a fabulous one!

I had sooo much fun making this multi layered card (I kinda got carried away and lost count of the layers haha).  When I saw the new Build a Farm Die Set, I instantly saw BABY BOY so went with that.  There's no stamping or colouring on this card, just die cutting and layering up pretty papers.

Because the card is square I wanted to shorten the length of the gorgeous new Checker Board Background Die a bit to fit in with the design I had in mind, so I disguised the cut with a piece of ribbon.  Love how adaptable this die is and it shows off the card beautifully

I die cut the tractor and adhered pieces of white card behind the windows to give it a more dimensional look.  I also cut out the cut little duckies, gave the feet and bills a spot of orange and popped them in the trailer so they could hitch a ride!  I added some enamel dots to the wheels and some clouds from the die set to finish it off.

I'm thrilled to bits with how this card turned out, it's my most favouritest (is that even a word) baby card I've ever made.  

The paper is from Nitwit Collections (Hydrangea IIRC), the ribbon and buttons are from my stash.

Meadow Road

I had a few spare hours so spent a Saturday afternoon with my copic markers.  Meadow Road by Whimsy Stamps was perfect, and I had a blast colouring this stamp up.

It's a good sized stamp so I kept the rest of the card simple with a wood background, some gingham ribbon, a digital sentiment from the Everyday Banner Sentiments and a few dots of black Nuvo Drops.   I dropped them straight from the bottle on to some freezer paper (waste from double sided foam square sheets works great too) and allowed them to dry before adhering to my card with some wet glue.  They're glossier and more dimensional done this way and don't disappear into the paper like they can do when applied direct to paper from the bottle.
