I'm back with another super cute card using the Tabby Tigers Paper Door Kit for FebruaryThis month’s kit is full of some really fun, amazing products! 


Each kit will include: 
  • EXCLUSIVE 6x6 Whimsy Stamps designer paper pack collections, fun and creative designs on heavy weight paper with a beautiful sheen - 24 double sided sheets
  • TWELVE sheets of 8.5x5.5 heavy weight neutral card stock - in black and white

    Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit. These cats are just super cute! Again, I colored my image with prismacolor pencils to resemble my tabby cat at home!
    I cut him out using the coordinating die set.


    For the background, I used one of the black A2 blank card base. I cut a slightly smaller panel from the white cardstock in the kit.
    I used the tiger stripes stencil and versa mark watermark ink on black cardstock. I heat embossed the pattern using Ranger Silver embossing powder
    I then used the Whimsy Stamps Wavy Edgers die set to cut the panel down to size. I stamped the sentiment from the kit and FaDoodles doodles using VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne (black) ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger clear embossing powder. I then cut a couple of plain cardstock strips and adhered them underneath the cat on the card. This panel was then adhered onto the black card base to finish.

      I cut him out using the coordinating die set.


      For the background, I used the white A2 blank card base. I die cut a white panel from cardstock within the kit, using the second largest Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Nested Rectangle. I then mounted this onto some grey cardstovk from my stash, leaving a thin border around the outside.
      I used the Whimsy Stamps Wavy Edgers die set to cut the green paper from the kit. I die cut a square from the striped pattern paper in the kit and adhered them both to the white panel. I added some grey and white bakers twine to the panel and tied it in a bow. This panel was then adhered to the white card base.
      I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne (black) ink and adhered the cat on to finish.

      Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles Wavy Edgers Die Set VersaFine CLAIR Ink Pad - Nocturne (black)

      Cute Card Thursday - Wings

      *This album is for SALE - email me for details - kerys(dot)sharrock(at)me(dot)com. 
      ** Albums of same design can be made to order - all themes considered. Email me for enquiries.

      Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Wings'. 

      As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 


      Another baby's first year mini album. I love this design for a mini album and used ideas from Corenescreations on YouTube.

      This album measures 8.5" x 8.5" with a 3.5" spine. The cover is made from medium weight chipboard. 
      I used Echo Park's 'Bundle of Joy' and 'Sweet Baby Girl' collection packs along with ribbon, charms and sequins from my stash.

      Each double page is new month and has a 4.25" x 6.25" photo mat (the embellishments are left open so that a photo can be slid behind) and a pocket with journalling cards and plenty of room to add more photos. There is also a milestone card for each month allowing the Mum a quick and easy way of keeping track of all the memories. There are also pull out mats for each month to add even more photos!

      The first month has a waterfall for lots of those first born photos. There is also a note card with all of the details on the birth to be filled in.





























      For the final page I add a double pocket with photo mats to add the baby's first Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter and Halloween. These fit a 4" x 6" photograph.

      There is SO much room in this album to add photographs and journalling to cherish all of those precious memories of your special addition to the family.

      We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up Stamps, a great prize as always! 

      Hope you can join us!


      Thanks for looking.
      Happy crafting x

      Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

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

      There is a collaboration between ThermOWeb & Whimsy Stamps this week and I used products from both companies for this card. Check out the whimsy blog for details on how to win some goodies!



      I used the Penguin Birthday stamp from Whimsy stamps and colored it in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut it out. I adhered this onto a white panel die cut using Whimsy Stamps Notched Rectangles die set.

      For the background I used GinaK Polka Party Foil-mates and Rose Gold deco foil. This was super easy and fun to do. I also used the foil to make the 'washi' strip. I adhered some double sided tape to a piece of scrap card and then adhered the foil on top. The foil stuck only where the tape was and so I cut around this giving the washi tape effect.

      I adhered the polka dot panel and wash border directly onto a standard A2 white card base. I then popped up the white image panel onto some fun foam for added dimension.

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

      ThermOWeb & Whimsy Stamps Collaboration



      This week Whimsy Stamps and ThermOWeb are partnering for a fabulous week of inspiration and prizes!  All week long designers from both teams will be sharing ways to add foils and more to your projects using products from ThermOWeb and Whimsy Stamps.  Read to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

      Its my turn to share a cute card using products from ThermOWeb new to me - the GinaK foil-mates and icraft deco foil. I must admit - this was highly addictive and fun to use!



      For my card I used the Stars & Stripes GinaK Foil Mates along with the aqua and lime deco foil. I made a little pocket and tag on the card using these. 


      I stamped and colored the Teddy Birthday Hat from Lee Holland & Whimsy stamps. I used my prismacolor pencils to color him in and added some of the lime deco foil for his hat (I used regular glue to stick this on)! I fussy cut him out and stuck him onto the pocket. 

      The background was created using the Darice Wire Fence embossing folder and then die cut using the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles - both from Whimsy Stamps. 


      The sentiment was created using the Shaker Builder Sweetest Birthday die (now retired) and You're My Favorite stamp set from Whimsy Stamps.


      I hope this card has inspired you to try the deco foil and foil mates, or even to move out of your comfort zone and try something new.
