Whimsy Stamps Challenge May 2018

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm a little late in posting but wanted to share with you guys the card I created for the May 2018 Challenge over at Whimsy Stamps. You can check out the current challenge here and the shop here.

I have used a rubber stamp this month - Penguin Bride and Groom, this stamp just drew me in and i've been hanging to use it :-) At the time of this posting, the stamp is also on sale so jump on it quick.. you need it..

Penguin Bride and Groom 

I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black onto Mondi Color Copy 250GSM, I then coloured the image up using Copic Markers, I don't have a list of them today as I was in my own little world colouring this one up and had put them away before I wrote them down. I ran the image through my Crafter's Companion Gemini using a My Favorite Things Stitched Circle Die.

The patterned papers I was using came from a 6x6 Paper Pad Called Love Notes from Crate Paper. I actually use this paper pad a lot and it's almost finished, and this is why when I buy a new paper pad I try to purchase more than one lol.

I cut the patterned paper layer using Cutterpillar Pro, I cut the banner from the same patterned paper using My Favorite Things Stitched Fishtail Flags Stax die which I ran through my Crafter's Companion Gemini. I adhered the flag off centre onto the first paper sheet I cut then trimmed the excess from the top using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors. I adhered using Scotch ATG.

I grabbed a doily from my stash, not sure of brands I have had them for a very long time, and adhered that over the tops of the banner and completely centre. I had a strip of the arrow paper inside my paper pad (I normally pop all the leftovers back into the paper pad never know when you may need something to finish a card off) which I adhered to the centre of the doily.

Next I grabbed the image I had already die cut and used some Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive to adhere it down to the doily and the strip.

Lastly I found a page in my paper pad with cut sentiments on it so I carefully used my EK Success Cutterbee scissors and fussy cut the "Remember This" sentiment and the "You Make My Heart Sing" Sentiment. I popped the larger sentiment onto some Scotch 3M Foam Mounting Tape and adhered it to the left hand side of my image. The smaller sentiment I just used some of the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive to adhere it. I used my Tonic Tim Holts Guillotine to do the cutting of the smaller pieces. I normally switch between my Guillotine and my Cutterpillar Pro depending on what I'm doing.

Once everything was done I applied Scotch ATG to the back and adhered it to a Twiddleybitz Pre-Made card base.
