Always and Forever

I love all things Echo Park, and I am still loving the Just Married 6x6 paper pad available, and ON SALE, in the 7KidsCrafts store now! Go grab it before it sells out.

I made a square card this time, measuring 5.5" x 5.5".

I used all papers from the Just Married collection, along with the cute heart die cuts from Doodlebug Design's Odds & Ends die cuts, I Pick You ephemera pack (also ON SALE!)

I added some hand stitching to the side of the card to tie the heart together.

The sentiment was stamped using Doodlebug Designs Love You Sentiments clear stamp set. I stamped in clear VersaMark Watermark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I'm sure these won't last ling, so head to the 7KidsCrafts store before they run out!

Thanks for looking.

Happy crafting :D

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 this adorable digital stamp from Whimsy Stamps - Shelby.

I printed out the image and colored her in with my prismacolor pencils. I added some white gel pen detailing and then fussy cut it out.

I used Whims Stamps Card Builder Windows die to cut out a panel of white cardstock. I then used the Whimsy Stamps Grass and Cloud Edger die to cut out a cloud stencil from heavy white cardstock. I used distress ink to create the cloud background.

I used the Whimsy Stamps Making Waves stencil with distress ink on a scrap of white cardstock. I cut this into a tag with my trimmer. I added some white ribbon to the top and secured it using a mini stapler.

I die cut the beach using some yellow cardstock from my stash and Whimsy Stamps Wavy Edgers die.

I stamped the sentiment directly onto the cloud background using Whimsy Stamps Beach Retreat stamp set.

I adhered it all together on a standard A2 white card base, popping up the image on foam dots.

We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps, a great prize as always! 

Hope you can join us!

Thanks for looking.

Whimsy Stamps June Digital Release - Dragon BBQ

I'm loving all of Dustin Pike's digital stamps for Whimsy Stamps - especially the dragons!

I used the fun Dragon BBQ Digital stamp for this fun card!

I printed the image onto a piece of white cardstock and colored it in with my prismacolor pencils. I added some white gel pen details and then fussy cut it out.

I used the Checkerboard Doodles Background stamp and black ink to create the background panel. I die cut this using the Notched Rectangles die. I adhered this onto black cardstock and hand cut the panel to match.

I used the Card Builder Windows die to cut out the red cardstock panel, cut it in half and added to a white cardstock panel measuring 4" x 5.25".

I added some bakers twine from my stash around the panel and adhered it onto a yellow cardstock base measuring 4.25" x 5.5".

I printed off the sentient that came with the Dragon BBQ digital stamp. I colored it in with my prismacolor pencils and the die cut it using one of the Quick Strips dies.

I popped up the checkerboard background panel on foam dots and added my sentiment. I then popped up the dragon image and finished off the card with some enamel dots.

All of this was adhered to a standard A2 white card base.

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

Thanks for looking.

Saturday Live - Crafty Catch Up #9

It was so nice to be able to catch up and craft with friends over zoom today, and the group is ever growing. Lots of good friends I have met through Whimsy Stamps craft retreats.

Today's challenge was to make a 'Dog' themed card, with a shaker element and no designer papers. I decided to use an older stamp set 'A Girl's Best Friend'.

Here is my card:

I stamped the dog image, colored it in with my prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut it out.

I created the background panel by stamping the Puppy Paws Background stamp onto grey cardstock with VersaMark Watermark ink, and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. 

I die cut the panel using the Card Builder Windows die and then cut out the window with the Connected Oval die. I also used the oval die with white cardstock to cut out the white frame.

I adhered acetate onto the back of the grey panel and added the frame on top. I added fun foam to the back of the panel to create the shaker window.

For the shaker elements, I found some paw print and bone brads in my stash. I cut off the backs of the brads and used them as shaker elements, with some clear gems from my stash.

I adhered the grey panel directly over the top of the shaker elements onto a standard A2 black base.

I finished the card iff by stamping a sentiment from the Unconditional Love stamp set and die cut it out with the Quick Strips die set. I adhered this onto the card and popped up the dog on foam tape.

I love how this turned out! I can't wait for all the challenges in next week's Virtual Whimsy Stamps retreat! :D

Thanks for looking.

Stay safe. Happy crafting x
