Cute Card Thursday - Silver or Gold

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Silver or Gold'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I used the new Whimsy Stamps Vertical Sentiments stamp set for this card.


I stamped the Thank You sentiment  onto a panel measuring 3" x 8" and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then stamped around the sentiment using Whimsy Stamps Beaucoup Bouquet stamp set and heat embossed the flowers with gold embossing powder.

I then used my watercolor set to color the images, background and sentiment. I added some white gel pen detailing for a little added interest.

I adhered this onto some red cardstock and then onto a standard 3.5" x 8.5" slimline card base.

Whimsy Stamps Dragon Christmas Cheer

I love all of Dustin Pike's stamps for Whimsy Stamps - particularly any that include dragons!

I used the awesome Dragon Christmas Cheer stamp set for this card.
 

This card was inspired by a card from the recent Whimsy Stamps Virtual Retreat. I changed up the colors from the original design...I always have to change up the cards to show the versatility of the stamp sets.

We were given the image and frame ready stamped and cut to color in. I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers to color the dragon in. The stamped frame is from Whimsy Stamps Fadoodles Frames stamp set, and the coordinating die is the Fadoodles Frames Scalloped Rectangles. The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Penguin Holiday Squares stamp set.

I added some purple cardstock onto a standard A2 black card base, and then adhered the image panel on top.

A very simple card design that really pops!

Thanks for looking.

Cute Card Thursday - Sentimental

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

I decided to make a super cute slimline card this week, with a simple sentiment.


I started this card by creating the background panel. I stamped the snowflakes from Whimsy Stamps Snow Flurry stamp set and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then used Speckled Egg distress oxide to blend over the top.

I die cut the white cardstock frame using Whimsy Stamps Slimline Pillow die.

I stamped the images using Whimsy Stamps Bundled Up stamp set. I colored them in and added some white gel pen detailing. I then fussy cut them out.

I stamped the sentiment onto acetate and carefully heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered this behind the middle window.

I hand cut some white glitter cardstock from my stash to create the snowbanks, adhered this on the ink blended background, and then adhered the white frame on top.

I added the images on top and then adhered the panel onto a standard 3.5" x 8.5" slimline card base.

Cute Card Thursday - Wintery

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

I used the newly released 'Little Helper' digital image from Whimsy Stamps.


I printed out the image and colored it in with my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I fussy cut it out and added some Wink of Stella to the fairy wings.

I used Whimsy Stamps Swiss Dots A2 die to cut out the circle frame background from white cardstock, and adhered this onto a piece of silver texture paper.

I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Penguin Holiday Squares stamp set

I adhered this onto a standard A2 white card base, and added some die cut glitter snowflakes from my stash.

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

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

I used the fun Slimline Hill House die and Oh What Fun stamp set (now retired) from Whimsy Stamps to create this scene.


This die was made with the intention if using it as a Halloween House - but I don't do Halloween and wanted to show you how versatile this die could be. I die cut the house using grey cardstock and added some cream cardstock behind each window and door. I added some VersaMark Watermark ink to the tops of the roofs, fence and path, and heat embossed it with some white puff embossing powder from Hero Arts.

I cut a white cardstock panel measuring 4" x 5.25" and masked off the two sides to create a vertical panel on the front. I used Whimsy Stamps Snow Flurry background stamp and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then blended Faded Jeans, Broken China and Speckled distress oxides over the top. I used a kitchen towel to wipe off the excess ink from the heat embossing.

I stamped the images from the Oh What Fun stamp set and colored them using my Spectrum Noir Triangle-blend markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I stamped the sentiment using Faded Jeans distress oxide and used the same ink to create the thin strip of cardstock to add being the banner. I die cut the banner using Whimsy Stamps Quick Strips die set.

This was adhered onto a standard A2 white card base. I popped up the Santa and presents on foam dots.

Whimsy Stamps Thanks my Friend

I love the new digital stamp release from Whimsy Stamps this month. I used 'A Blustery Day' for this card.


I printed the image onto a piece of white cardstock and colored it in with my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I then fussy cut him out.

I used the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Wonky Window 1 die to cut out the black frame, and added some white gel pen stitching around the frame.

I added papers from Whimsy Stamps Giraffe 6x6 paper pad behind the frame....I thought it looked a little like leaves and was the perfect Autumn colors.

I die cut the large sentiment using Whimsy Stamps Thanks Word and Shadow die and stamped the smaller sentiment using the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Sentiments stamp set. The orange paper was from the Giraffe paper pad and I cut it into a thin banner.

This was all adhered to a standard 3.5" x 8.5" white card base. I popped up the image on foam dots for added dimension.

There are lots more great releases this month - head over the the Whimsy Stamps store and check them out!

Thanks for looking.

Whimsy Stamps Pile of Presents

We received a freebie digital image during the recent Whimsy Stamps Virtual retreat, and I love the simplicity of this image. I wanted the image to be the star of the card!
 

I printed the image onto a piece of white cardstock and colored it in with my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I added some white gel pen detailing and then fussy cut it out.

I used some silver glitter paper I received in one of the older Paper Door Kits and cut the circle frame using the Pierced and Stitched Circles die set. I offset this on a white cardstock panel measuring 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".

I stamped the sentiment using Santa's Train stamp set and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.

I added the panel onto a silver glitter paper panel and then onto a standard A2 white card base.

I finished off the card by adding some stickles to the ornaments and background panel.

Nice and easy!

Thanks for looking.
