Whimsy Inspirational Magazine Issue 8



Hello Everyone! I'm so excited....today is release day for
Whimsy's newest Inspirational Magazine!



This means 92 pages full of stamping goodness, inspiration, tutorials, cards, LO's and much more! And the best thing.... it's all FREE! So get a cup of your favorite beverage, relax and enjoy! You can also download the magazine to your computer to enjoy offline!

My card for today uses one of Whimsy's Digital Images from the Moon Cookie Gallery. It's one of the flower fairies and her name is 'Leslie the Tulip Fairy'. The tulip was done in the feather blending technique and I made a tutorial how to feather blend two opposite color shades. You will find the tutorial in the new issue of the Whimsy Inspirational Magazine HERE, it starts on page 16!

This card is up for sale in my Etsy shop Delightful Card Design

The fairy was colored using Copics and the DP's I've used are a mix of Basic Grey and Fancy Pants. Both are from older collections. The sentiment is from the Birthday Letter Seals. Ahhhh and I finally could do some sewing again on my cards after I repaired my sewing machine....YAY! :-)! I've missed that! It's just a nice and easy way to add some embellishing to the paper layers. The tag is also from Whimsy's Shapeology collection and I stamped on some swirls. 


I've added lots of Stickles to her wings and some parts of her dress.




I decorated the inside to match the outside using the same papers. I'm not adding many embellies to the insides of my cards because I want them to shut as flat as possible. So I just picked some rather flat flowers.


I also have a STAMP SALE going on! I've decided to sell some of my stamps to make room for my new stuff. Please click here to check out my listings on Ebay!
 
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great rest of the week!


Hugs,
Iris
