Clearly Whimsy Stamps August Release - Day 1

Pin It
 
Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the ...


Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new August 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. We are releasing 3 new clear stamp sets and 4 dies/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday. 

I am thrilled to be a GD for Clearly Whimsy Stamps this month! I had a blast creating with these awesome stamps and dies! Thanks so much for having me! :-)

Today we are revealing the Thanks A Million 4x6” stamp set and Basic Backgrounds & Borders 1 4x6” stamp set, together with the Thanks large word die and the Stitched Borders die set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details. 


   
   


For my first card I used the 'Thanks' large word die and a sentiment from the 'Thanks a Million" set.

DP is from Basic Grey, CS from Bazzill. I've added a white ribbon and a button to embellish my card.


My second card is a one layer card using the 'thanks' die cut which was a 'left over' from my first card.

I've added another sentiment from the "Thanks a Million" set and stamped some of the cute tiny stars around the die cut and sentiment using Memento 'Pear Tart' ink. On the smallest stars I've added some matching Stickles for a bit of bling. The straight stiched border die embellishes both sides of the card.


Here's my last card:
The wavy stiched border die was used here to divide the card vertical. The word love (from the Thanks a Million 4x6 set) was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. DP is from Fancy Pants.

If the broom fits...

Pin It

Hello Friends :-) Here is a Whimsy Stamps creation I want to share with you. A CAS card I made today using the awesome Witch Hat Sentiment Set by Raindrop Echo Designs again.


I made the background spritzing ink onto white cardstock using Distress Markers and stamping "ink splats". The splats are from a Clearly Whimsy sentiment set called Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats by SC Design. Then I stamped the witch hat sentiment and added some sequins to embellish the card a little.

Thanks for stopping by

Guest Designer for Shaky A. - Margot

Pin It



Happy Saturday Everyone! Here is my second guest designer creation for Shaky A. digi stamps. This time I've played with Margot, isn't she cute?

She's been colored with Copics and the card's made in a more clean and simple style than the one with Penelope the other day. The sentiment comes with the stamp and the papers are from a Glitz Design paper pad. Everything else is from my stash.

A close-up:

And a shot from another angle:

There's also a FB group to share all things Shaky A. HERE and a BLOG where the DT is sharing their amazing creations. Make sure you stop by and visit!
Thanks for having me Alberto, it was a pleasure to design with your amazing images! :-)

Simply Wicked

Pin It

Happy TGIF! Here's a little Halloween inspiration using Whimsy's Witch Hat Sentiment Set by Raindrop Echo Designs.

I stamped the witch hat using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added some purple highlights with Copics. The hat's been cut out using the matching Witch Hat die from Whimsy's Shapeology line. The 'simply wicked' sentiment is also from the Witch Hat Sentiment Set. DP is from an older Basic Grey collection.




Thanks for stopping by and tomorrow I'll have another Shaky A. guest designer creation to share with you!

Hugs,

Guest Designer for Shaky A. - Penelope

Pin It

Happy Hump Day Everyone! Today I like to share a creation with you as a guest designer for Shaky A. digi stamps. I love Alberto's stamp line and was thrilled when he asked me if I would like to guest design. He recently opened his Etsy shop Shaky A. Planet where you will find all his stamps available for immediate download. Some wonderful inspiration from the DT can be found on the Shaky A. blog HERE.

For my card I used Penelope and I colored her using Copics.

I sprinkled some shabby white embossing powder around the image. The sentiment comes with the image. Dies used are from Memory Box, which I also sprinkled and embossed with shabby silver embossing powder, and Magnolia. Flowers, lace and ribbon are from my stash. Filmstrip is from Tim Holtz and the papers are Maja Design.


A closer look:




Thanks for stopping by today and I'll have another Shaky A. creation to show here on my blog later this week. Make sure you come back and check!

Hugs,

Just a Note...

Pin It


Hello Friends & Happy Thursday to you all! It's time to share another Whimsy creation with you. This time I inked up a super cute image by Time for Tea Designs from Whimsy's newest release called Cozi Cardi

I colored her with Copics and cut her out with an oval Nesti. Using the Whimsy Lavish Flourishes I stamped around the edges with Memento Toffee Crunch.  On top of that I sprinkled some shabby white embossing powder. The sentiment is from Everyday Moments sentiment set by SC Design. Papers are from Maya Design.


Closer look on the image:


Finally an artsy shot ;-)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs,
