Whimsy Stamps July Rubber & Clear Stamp Release Day 3

Here's another super cute image from July's release of Clear & Rubber Stamps at the Whimsy Stamps store!

I used 'Mister Mummy' by Krista Heij-Barber. We don't send Halloween cards, so I decided to use the image to make a super cute mini goodie bag.

I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils and fussy cut it out.
I used a small gift bag from Michaels and added some black & white striped paper for the background. I cut out a simple banner to break up the background and add a little more color. I used 'Summer Breeze' enamel dots and halloween twine from Recollections to finish the bag off!



You have just got to see what the rest of the Whimsy Rubber Team Designer Divas have created with the stamps, dies and stencils. Go check out the Whimsy Stamps & Inspiration Facebook Page and leave them a little love.

Whimsy Stamps July Clear & Rubber Stamp Release Day 3

Welcome to July's release of Clear & Rubber Stamps at the Whimsy Stamps store!

I used this super cute image from Lee Holland called 'Teddy Birthday Messages'.
I wanted to keep this card quite simple to highlight the image.


I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils.
The background papers are from Doodlebug's 'dot-grid-daisy-stripe rainbow petite prints' 6x6 paper pads.
I added a little bakers twine to the card to give it a little more interest and brought in the yellow color with some Whimsy Stamps 'Summer Breeze' enamel dots too.

Whimsy Stamps July Clear & Rubber Stamp release Day 2

Welcome to July's release of Clear & Rubber Stamps at the Whimsy Stamps store!

I used more cute penguins from Crissy Armstrong. 
This one is 'Penguin Pumpkin Patch'.

I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut it out.
The back ground papers are a mixture from my stash. 
On the blue background paper I drew on some wonky stitching using a white gel pen, and then cut out a large banner from the striped paper for a little more color and interest.
I used the Whimsy Stamps Shaker Builder - Sweetest Birthday Die Set for the brown frame in the background.
I used the Whimsy Stamps Card Builder - Many Thanks Die Set for the thanks sentiment, banner and small yellow hearts. 
I 'popped' these all up on using pop dots.
I assed a little bakers twine to the card to give it a little more balance.

Cute Card Thursday - Summer Colors

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Summer Colors'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I didn't use an image this week, but instead used colored chip cards from the local hardware store for my background.


I used the smallest of the Whimsy Stamps 'Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles' to die cut each of the colored swatches and them stuck them up and down randomly on the card for the background. The white background is cut out using the largest of the nested rectangles.
 I then used the Whimsy Stamps 'Word Die Set - Sympathy Heartfelt & Condolences' to show you how this set doesn't just have to be used for sympathy cards! I cut out the large word 3 times and glued them on top of each other for a little dimension.
I used Whimsy Stamps 'Scripty Occasions' clear stamp set for the sentiment. The actual stamp says 'Many Thanks' but I didn't want all. The trick to just stamping part of the image is to use washi tape to cover the part of the sentiment you don't want (in this case 'Many'), ink up your stamp and then remove the tape before stamping. Voila! You have only stamped the part of the sentiment you want.
I die cut the hearts from Whimsy Stamps 'Baby Animals Die Set' and added a little baker's twine to add a little color to the top of the card.

 

 

We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps, a great prize as always! 
Hope you can join us! See you there!

Whimsy Stamps July Clear and Rubber Stamp Release

Welcome to July's release of Clear & Rubber Stamps at the Whimsy Stamps store!

I used this adorable stamp from Whimsy Stamps - 'Baby Giraffe' by Sylvia Zet.

Could it be any cuter??

I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils.
I stamped the sentiment using the 'Baby Animals' clear stamp set.
The papers are from My Mind's Eye's 'The Sweetest Thing Bluebell' collection.
I used a border die from my stash to cut out the scalloped border and added a little cheesecloth behind the image panel for a little texture and dimension.

I used the adorable clear stamp set from June's release -

Lots of fun images and sentiments in this set.



I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut it out.
I used a starfish stencil from Echo Park to decorate the photo frame, and added the sentiment using the 'Say What' clear stamp set (retired). I used VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed it with red embossing powder.
I used some color box inks to color the background and added some baker's twine, a brad from my stash and enamel dots from 'It's a party' and 'Christmas Cheer' collections.

MFT Sketch #341

So - my daughter chose a birthday card for one of her friends out of my box of cards. She loved the Adorable Elephants stamp and shaker element to the card. Her friend is also big into pink!


She decided that she needed a matching gift bag to go with the card! I decided to use this week's sketch #341 as the inspiration for the design - it worked perfectly.


Here is my finished gift bag:

I used the 'Adorable Elephants' stamp set for the image and sentiment - coloring the image using my prismacolor pencils and fussy cut it out.
I used the 'Stitched Scallop Basic Edges' die-namic for the edge of the pink cardstock. The shaker window was made using 2 of the 'Double Stitched Square STAX' dies.
The 'Birthday Balloons' die-namics were used for the balloons.
The papers are from Doodlebug's 'kraft in color - color' 6x6 paper pad, and others in my stash..
A few enamel dots and some ribbon then finished the gift bag off!
