Today the Whimsy Design Team members are hosting a friendship hop in honor of a
special member of the Whimsy Stamps family, Simonne Clay. Simonne has
been a fixture at Whimsy for many years and we all just wanted to
show our appreciation for all that she does for each of us and for
sharing her amazing talent as an illustrator.
A little note for Simonne.
Thank you so much Simonne for the amazing and gorgeous stamp sets we got to create with, thank your for your friendship over the years and for all you have done for each one of us at whimsy.
Not to mention your amazing cards always inspire me! Sending lots of hugs your way my dear friend!
I hope you like the card I created just for you!
The beautiful chalkboard sentiments are from one of the sets designed by Simonne. I've surrounded it with the cute Whimsy Wee stamps kittens which were fussy cut. I simply embellished with some sequins and did some paper piecing.
Our challenge at Penny Black and More this month is Celebrations, which includes all kinds of occasions you would celebrate, so Christmas of course is included. We have some very generous sponsors this month. Be sure to play along for a chance to win.
My Monday Morning challenge this month is Winter or Christmas, so my card today fits for both these challenges. The prize for my challenge is a cute wood mounted rubber stamp from Penny Black which is being sponsored by me/ my Etsy store Timeless Stamps. I still have the Christmas stamps marked down, and the one I have used today is included.
To make my card I stamped the beautiful image using black stazon ink onto watercolor paper and then colored using distress inks. I applied lots of glitter to finish it off. A very quick card to make.
I finally cleaned my desk today, since I left it a mess last time I made something, and then yesterday me and my daughter worked on a little gift for her secret Santa. It took forever to clean up, but when I was finished I felt like making a quick card with the beautiful stamp "Winter Song" since I still need a few more Christmas cards.
I've wanted to heat emboss this image since I first got it, and decided on a CAS card heat embossing with silver.
This is a very quick card to make, I simply stamped the image with versamark ink, heat embossed with silver embossing powder and added my sentiment using a turquoise ink. I wanted a little more color on the card so I added a little bit of scallop paper to the card and some turquoise rhinestones.
I apologize for the bad photo. It's such a foggy day out today, no sunshine at all!
Oh, and if anyone is interested in playing along in my Monday Morning challenge, there is still time to enter. I have a cute Penny Black stamp to give away there. You can find that challenge post by clicking HERE.
Happy Friday everyone! Today was my turn to share a Just For Fun creation on the JFF blog. This month we are teaming up with Altered Pages,
who kindly sent us some fabulous products to play with! I have used
products from both Just for Fun Rubber Stamps and Altered Pages on
love these vintage style images, and was thrilled to have received a
few collage sheets from Altered Pages. By the way, you can buy
these in their shop as pre-printed sheets (you can even choose which
card stock) or you can buy them as digital prints.
I created a vintage style card using more products from Altered Pages as well as stamps from Just for Fun Rubber Stamps.
I wanted to share a second card made with another image from the collage sheet.
card is rather clean and simple. Simply framed with gold card stock and
added some glitter to the snow and angel's wings. I used the same
sentiment as above from Just for Fun. Also used a Glorious Song
background stamp from JFF, but sadly it's hardly visible in the photo.
I just noticed that my post wasn't scheduled, it was sitting in "draft" mode instead, so I am posting this a little bit late than I should have.
It was my turn to share something today on the Whiff of Joy blog, and since I just recently received my Winter stamp kit, I decided to share two cards.
First up is the very cute Henry the mouse as an angel.
He has been stamped onto copic xpress blending card and colored with
copic markers. Other papers/card stocks are all from SU. I finished it
off with a little bit of glitter and some twine. Sentiment is part of
this cute set. As you can see, I also stamped a design onto the kraft
card stock using stamps from the kit.
Here is my second card, using the cute Henry as a shepherd.
Copics on xpress blending card were used again, and I fussy cut the
image. The pinecone embellishment is also a stamp from this kit, as is
the sentiment. Papers are all from my stash
Hello and thanks for visiting!I had some time to do some coloring over the weekend, and today I finally was able to turn this cutie into a card.
For the main image I used the rubber stamp "Dreams of Paris" from Whimsy Stamps, illustrated by Mi Ran. She's been colored with copic markers and fussy cut. My designer paper is from my stash, probably by My Minds Eye. I used a few stamps from whimsy to add to the designer paper print. Sentiment was also just recently released. I used the new nested rectangle die set to cut it out.
A pretty simple sketch. I just added a few matching designer paper strips and button with twine to the card to finish it off.
