Christmas Scene Builder

This is a scheduled post, so hopefully blogger will behave and post it as expected!

I absolutely love this new stamp set by Whimsy stamps -  Christmas Scene Builder - by SC Designs. I used it on our Grand Blog Hop, using the city scape, and on today's card I used it using the evergreen trees.

The scene was made with distress inks and a mask created by simply tearing some paper. A very CAS card, and it was very quick to make once I decided on the design. 

You can find the stamp set HERE in the Whimsy Shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Eclectic Garden

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

Time for a little Just For Fun Rubberstamps inspiration. For today's card I decided to use one of the beautiful flower stamps that I received in my first DT packet from JFF rubberstamps. This is my first time using it, and I have to say it was so much fun to color the beautiful flowers! 
As this is a rather large stamp, I kept my card simple and just inked the bottom portion with distress ink after coloring. The image itself has been heat embossed. 

The matching sentiment is also available at Just For Fun. Embellished with twine and glitter.

You can find the JFF products here:

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
