Christmas Mice

Happy Monday :-)

I have a new cute Whimsy Stamps card to share today, using the new stamp O Holey Night illustrated by the super talented Crissy Armstrong. This was probably my favorite stamp from the October release. I absolutely loved coloring these cuties!!

I used copics for coloring and added some stickles glitter for a little sparkle. Papers are from my stash. The bells on the top left were done using the new Jingle Bells Die set. Sentiment is from the new set Christmas Scene Builder. Finished it off with some twine and punched branches behind the bells.

Stamptangle Pumpkins

Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a fun Autumn day! It's a cloudy day here, and I wish it was a little warmer outside. But it almost the end of October, so I have no choice but to get used to it...

I have an Autumn themed card to share with you today, using stamps from Just For Fun Rubberstamps. Those stamptangle pumpkins were perfect for creating a Thanksgiving card. JFF offers them in 3 sizes, I used the small and medium sized ones for my card. 

The pumpkins were stamped using black archival ink, and then inked up using several colors of distress inks and an ink applicator. They were both fussy cut. Before adhering them to my card, I stamped the dried flower stalk onto the background. Simply added some designer papers on the side, along with the sentiment and some twine. To finish it off, I rounded the corners on the bottom part of the card.

Product list:
Distress inks (mustard seed, spiced marmalade, peeled paint, fired brick)
SU designer paper scraps, twine

Winter Princess

It's a rainy day here today, perfect time to finish this cute card that I started on yesterday. I used the gorgeous stamp "Winter Princess" from Whimsy Stamps, illustrated by Mi Ran.

Stamped onto copic xpress blending card and then colored using copic markers. I inked the edges  using broken china distress ink.
I used Whimsy's snowflake border die from last year's release to surround the image with. Sentiment circles are from the set "Build a Snowman". But instead of building a snowman, I simply cut out the two stamped circles and put some silver cord through eyelets to add to my card. 
A little bit of glitter was added to finish it off.

I try to post my creations on intagram too. Would love for you to follow  me if you are on there.

I am also on twitter :-)

Too Cute to Spook

I am back again with another card. Today is my turn to post to the Whiff of Joy blog, and today's theme there is "Scrap your stash".

I don't even want to tell you how many designer paper scraps I have, it's ridiculous - not to mention ribbon scraps and old unfinished card scraps that I have been wanting to take apart....but I was so afraid that I wasn't going to find much Halloween themed paper. I was so wrong, as I found plenty and so I remembered a card sketch I saw which used  several designer paper scraps, and so I created the card following that sketch.

I only used 3 different designer papers, although I found plenty more I could have used. But I wanted to just focus on the colors I used for coloring the cute image. 

By the way, my little squares are just 1x1 inch each, so this sketch really is perfect for all those small paper pieces you have left over from other projects.

The cute image is from Whiff of Joy's Fall Stamp Kit (Kit No. 3). It's been colored using copic markers and fussy cut. Sentiment and leaf stamped over the sentiment are also part of the cute kit. I added some diecut bats to my card to finish it off.
