Whimsy Stamps Lets Go a Hunting

Hi Everyone, I cannot believe the first week of May is already almost done.. the year is flying through.

Today I created a card using Monster Dragon from Whimsy Stamps Dustin Pike Collection, such a gorgeous little image.. I may be a little bias though because I absolutely love all of Dustin's images :-)



I printed the image onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Brother Laser Printer, then coloured him up using Copic Markers. 





I think he is super adorable! I did use quite a few markers colouring him up but it was well worth it :-)


I ran him through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle die, I will link up a few different companies versions for you. 

Once I had him cut out I realised he needed some shadow grounding so pulled out some of my W Markers and added that underneath him.


I printed out some patterned papers from Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection - this is the Dino Collection


I trimmed some down, banners created using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors. I also used some leftovers of X-Press it and created some white banners for the top corner. 


I went through my little tub of extra die cuts and pulled out a few stars to attach to the front of my card.



I added some Derivan Kindy Glitz to the stars - you can use other products like Stickles etc to get the same effect. I also used the same to "light up" the torch.


The sentiment is part of the digital stamp set, I trimmed it down to a rectangle and adhered it using Helmar Acid Free. 


I trimmed down some green American Crafts Cardstock to use as a matte layer then adhered all the layers to a Couture Creations Card Base. 


I used leftovers of the Digital Papers to decorate the inside of my card to match.

Whimsy Stamps - Love Swing

Hi Everyone, 

WOW it is the 1st of May already, how quick has that gone! 

New Month means new Digital Release over at Whimsy Stamps.

I am creating with Dudley and Dahlia from Dustin Pike's Collection for you today. I have created a gorgeous little Love Card. 


I printed the image onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Brother Laser Printer then I coloured it using Copic Markers. 



I love the way the image turned out, I think it is super cute :-)


I went in with Wink Of Stella Clear and a Uni-ball white gel pen to add in some extra details to finish the image off.


I ran the image through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Stitched Circle die.


I printed some Digital Papers from Whimsy Stamps Hearts A Flutter Set. 


I just printed them onto some cheap copy paper, they don't need to be on anything super quick as everything is going to be layered up anyways. 

I printed a sentiment from Big Wishes Sentiments onto X-Press It Blending Card, actually I printed a few in two different sizes, I trimmed down the big one but then cut too much off because I wasn't focused on what I was doing haha. Anyway I'm super happy with the small one it turned out much better anyway.
I trimmed it down on my trimmer then bannered it up using my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors. 


I adhered some clouds from another brand as I don't have any of the Whimsy Stamps ones, however I will link some up in the picture links below. 




I adhered all the layers to some coloured cardstock from Kaisercraft and American Crafts using Helmar Acid Free Liquid Adhesive then to a Couture Creations Card base then my card was complete. 

Not bad for a last minute rush :-)


I did decorate the inside of the card like I always do, I just don't have any photos at the moment. 

Don't forget to pop over to the Whimsy Stamps shop and check out all the May 2021 New Releases.

Whimsy Stamps - Get Well Bunny

Good Morning Everyone,




I began by printing the image onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock then colouring it up using Copic Markers (I will have a full list of markers used at the end of this post). 



Once I had the image coloured up I fussy cut him using my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors, These are my go to when it comes to fussy cutting, they have a nice sharp point making it easier to get that smooth cut. 


I printed Digital Papers from the Hearts A Flutter Digital Paper Set onto Copy Paper, nothing fancy just cheap paper.


I trimmed the papers down then ran the flying hearts through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Die, I have linked up a few other options for you in the picture links below. 


I have a little bowl in my drawer next to my desk that I keep all my extra die cuts in and found these puffy clouds from MFT Stamps (I have also listed other brands of those to help you out). 


I coated the balloons in Wink Of Stella Clear, I love this as it dries quickly so there is no chance of smudging, just be careful using it over gel pen, I went around it and not over it to prevent and smudging. 


I cut down some matte layers from Kaisercraft and American Crafts and used a Card Base from Couture Creations. 


Using my Helmar Acid Free Liquid Adhesive I adhered all the layers to my card base. I did take a photo of my layout before I moved anything to begin the adhering just incase I messed up where everything had come from. 


I used leftovers of the patterned paper to decorate the inside of the card also. 


I love the way the card turned out, don't forget to head over and check out the Whimsy Stamps Shop for lots more great goodies

Whimsy Stamps - A Dragon Birthday Bash

Hi Everyone! 

Today I am here to share with you a super cute Birthday Card I made using Dragon Begging from Whimsy Stamps, Designed by Dustin Pike.
I also used some other Whimsy Stamps products - Birthday Wishes Sentiments, Dino Friends Digital Papers.




I ran the image through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles die before I began colouring.. no rhyme or reason as to why I did this, it was just done that way :-)


I coloured him up using Copic Markers, adding in some extra details using a Uni-Ball White Gel Pen.


I printed some Digital Papers from Dino Friends using my Canon printer just onto some Copy Paper, I find I get a good print job and it is not necessary to be printing onto expensive paper. 


I trimmed some yellow cardstock from Kaisercraft and some white from American Crafts.


I used a Balloon die from MFT Stamps called Big Birthday Balloons, I could only find one link for this set so I have linked up some other companies with similar balloon dies. I ran it through using a leftover piece of the patterned paper, I adhered it to my card using Foam tape and coated it with Wink Of Stella (it is still wet in this pic but it did dry flat).


The Birthday sentiment is printed from Birthday Wishes Sentiments from Whimsy Stamps, I printed them onto X-Press It blending card because it was going to be adhered so close to the image I wanted the whites to match. 


I adhered all the layers to a Couture Creation Card Base using Glue Dots tape runner, I haven't used these in ages and came across them today when I was tidying my craft room.

Whimsy Stamps - Butterfly Friend Beautiful

Hi Everyone, 

I had some time to get some projects done recently, I was in a zone where I had no camera on or anything. So I do apologise I have absolutely no video footage of this one, no product list no something. Literally in my own little world.


I used an image from Whimsy Stamps Some Odd Girl Collection called Butterfly Fairy, such a beautiful little image :-)





I printed the image onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Brother Laser Printer and coloured her up using Copic Markers. 







I ran the image through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle die, everything else used on this card was made from leftovers in my tub I keep under my desk so I have no brand names of anything..




I ran the image back through my Big Shot using a word die I have that is from another brand and is completely retired.




I apologise I don't have a lot to tell you, I just needed to zone out for a while.
