Holiday Inspiration

Good Morning!

Hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying the weekend.

I wanted to share some Holiday Inspiration from our special guest designers Bev Rochester and Deb Routledge

First up are a couple of lovely cards from Bev. This one uses Starry Night and Holiday Ticket Sentiments...

And this one was created with Vintage Christmas, a set which includes images and holiday sentiments...

Next up are these beautiful creations by Deb. This card uses the new stamp Holly Beary Fairy and Holiday Tickets...

And finally this one using Jingle Bell Ride...

All of these stamps are available in our Rubber Stamp Collections on the Whimsy Shop page. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful Poinsettia

Hello Whimsy fans! Today I have a card to share using some of the fabulous and very beautiful new Whimsy Stamps Holiday stamps.

Initially, I was going to use a different Whimsy stamp for the main focal part of this card (can you guess which one it was?  Just look at the stripey paper for a clue, LOL!), but once I'd made up the base of the card, I decided it just didn't look right, and so I inked up the large poinsettia stamp from the Vintage Christmas stamp set and set about colouring it, then cut it out and popped it up with foam pads.  I also stamped the swirls onto the mistletoe DP and then traced over them with a gold spica pen:

The 'Merry Christmas' sentiment stamp, plus the holly stamp that I used to stamp on the green background paper, are both from the Jingle Bell Ride stamp set.

Thank you for dropping by today!

Nestie-friendly stamps

Hi, it's Annika here and today is my turn to give you a little peek at my playtime results.

Our own fabulous Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs) has just recently awed us with a set of new Nestabilitie-friendly digital stamps called Dressed Up Shapes. I love those to bits and had to have a play as soon as I could. The stamp I used is called Leafy Frame and I put in the sentiment from the set called Amongst the Stars Sentiments.

And when I said "playtime" I really meant that I played a lot, lol. I tried a lot of different looks before settling to that one and spent about 3.5 hours making that fairly simple card. Yup. That's me. Inefficient and quite OK with it.

I printed the frame onto pearlescent paper first and glittered using Stickum Powder (it's an embossing powder like substance that becomes an adhesive when heated, similar one is Sticky Stuff by Judikins and Heat and Stick by Stampin' Up), then heat set it again to firmly keep the glitter in place. Next I printed the sentiment into the frame and embossed with clear detail powder. I sponged some Antique Linen DI all over the panel to take the crisp whiteness away - and that's pretty much it.

I printed the frame at 8.4 cm width, that makes a lovely fit for second biggest Nestability matching die.

I used pearly paper because due to it's coated surface ink dries very slowly on it, so embossing is possible. If you don't have pearlescent paper, just cover ANY paper with thin coat of Matte Medium, let it dry (or blast with heat gun if you're anything like me...) and you're good to go. There's A LOT of fun to be had with glitter, embossing powders and digital stamps!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!!

Warm Winter Wishes...

I absolutely love cute Winter/Holiday images and today I would like to share with you a card I made a couple of months ago with one of the adorable digital images designed by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps.

The image is called Warm Winter Wishes and I added a matching sentiment from the Warm Winter Wishes sentiment set designed by Raidropecho Designs.

As usual, I coloured the image with watercolour pencils.
