Hello everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!

What an exciting day at Whimsy Stamps!! Whimsy has released the first ever Whimsy Inspirations issue filled with lots of gorgeous samples by the Whimsy Stamps designers and costumers. The magazine is absolutely stunning, you just have to go look and I promise you won't be disappointed. Plus it is absolutely free!!! And I have to admit I am so super excited to be part of this amazing team!!

Here is the link.

Here is the card I submitted to the magazine. Unfortunately I didn't have time to submit more cards, but hopefully I will for the next issue.


I absolutely love these images!! They are all digis available in the Meljen's Corner at Whimsy Stamps.

And if you're one of the cardmakers that hasn't gotten into digital stamps, there is good news!!
Most images I used for this card are now also available as rubber stamps, the little happy gnome, garden fence and garden bird house. Whimsy Stamps are best quality red rubber cling mounted, made in the USA. After trimming they are ready to use with your acrylic blocks.

The little cloud was a freebie from Meljen's and you can find it here along with her many other freebies. The little butterfly can be found here in the Whimsy Shop.

I colored the images with copic markers.
The bird house and fence were merged using a free photo editing software. I used the tutorial found here. But have to admit - for some reason I haven't been able to figure out the "overlapping" part, so I just printed out the gnome separately and cut him out. It worked out great in this case as I wanted him to pop up a little anyway.

Products used:
Stamps: digis -
Happy little gnome, garden bird house, garden fence, simple butterfly, little cloud freebie (all by Meljen's); rubber - SU warm words (retired)
Papers: Stampin Up, Neenah
Inks: HP inkjet, memento tuxedo black
Accessories: hemp twine, prima flowers, buttons, brads, glitter
Tools: paper piercing tool kit, copics and derwent coloursoft, Martha Stewart Grass punch
