Whimsy Mini Release - Card #2

For a girl who just does not get the whole Halloween hoopla I'm on a roll with Halloween cards this year, though this is the last - I'm all Halloween'd out. 😂

I started off with the Wonky Window 3 die as the base for the card and love how the black sets off the inked background.  I used Distress Oxides in Fossilised Amber, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet then added some water splashes and splattered some black paint over it.  

The sign is stamped then cut out from the Sleepy Hollow stamp set, and I added some bats that I cut from the Bats & Bubbles border die set.

I finished off with the image from the Got Peepers stamp set, coloured with copic markers
Hat: V17, 15, 12,01; G14, YG03; YR24, Y11
Cat: C9, 7, 5; R30; G14, YG03

Whimsy Stamps Mini Release

Whimsy is having a mini release today with some delish Christmas goodies.  Those lucky girls are at a the Whimsy Workshop Weekend  I so wish I was there!

For my card today I've used the sweet Santa's Train Clear Stamp Set and coloured the images with copic markers, then fussy cut them out so I could pop them in the windows of the Slimline Postage Die.

I created the background with Distress Oxides - Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans and a touch of Chipped Sapphire.  When the ink was dry I applied some glittery stencil paste through my FAVE of the new release - the Twinkle Stencil.  Love, love, love this stencil, I can see me wearing this out from over-use ha! 

I have another card for the new release that I'll pop on my blog in a couple of days.

Christmas Bling!

I've a couple of quick Christmas cards that I made using the newly released Snowflake Frame rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps.

For the blue and gold card (which is totally inspired by and cased from this video) I inked up a background with Distress Oxides - Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire.  Once it was dry I stamped and heat embossed the image, I uses Wow Fairy Tale embossing powder.  I die cut the Christmas Large Word Die and a snowflake from glitter card, and finished off with a merry sentiment and lots and lots of rhinestones because Christmas = BLING!

The second card was a lot simpler as I just stamped and heat embossed the snowflake image in to kraft card stock.  I die cut the Merry Large Word Die from glitter card and a few layers of white card to give a bit more dimension.

I finished off with a sentiment and oodles of blink on this one too.  They're really quick and easy cards to make and great for a production line.

Got Peepers!

It's  Whimsy Stamps release day and my card is all about Halloween.  Whimsy released a whole bevy of Halloween goodies this month, and my card features 

I heat embossed the background stamp on to  Neenah cardstock with Versafine  Black Ink and then stamped it again with Versamark so I could emboss it with clear embossing powder.  I then appled Distress Oxide Inks - Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade with blender brushes.  Whilst I was doing that I also inked up a scrap of card to pop behind the circle window.

The cat is sooooo easy, a bit of colour for the eyes and ears, a bit of simple fussy cutting and job done!  I finished off with a sentiment from the stamp set and some black nuvo drops.
