Cute Card Thursday - Summer

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

I have recently returned from a super fun Whimsy Stamps retreat in Florida which I would HIGHLY recommend to everyone! there is another retreat coming up in October too - you should go check it out:

We learnt so many new techniques and made a TON of cards I thought I would share one I made there. As always, I like to change things up a bit! So here is a background I created at the retreat using distress oxides, transfer gel and deco foil.



I printed the newly released Penguin Beach Chair image onto white cardstock and colored him in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut him out. 

I die cut some palm trees from the new Build -an-Island die set and colored them in with my prismacolor pencils. I cut the 'beach' using the same die from some scrap paper in my stash. 

This was all added to the foiled background to make a scene.
I finished the card off with some bakers twine and a shell charm, and added it to a standard A2 kraft card base.

We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps, a great prize as always! 

Hope you can join us!


Thanks for looking.

Whimsy Stamps 'Leon' mini album

* This album is FOR SALE.
** Contact me at kerys(dot)sharrock(at)me(dot)com for information.
*** Other albums of the same style can be made to order with the theme of your choice - contact me for details.

So, who didn't have a little red car as they were growing up?? I know I did and it still lives at my parents house for the grandchildren! This little boy image in his little red car is just adorable. The image is called 'Leon' from Whimsy Stamps and is a digital stamp for you to resize and color to your hearts content.
I paired up this image with Echo Park's 'Little Man' collection - a perfect combination for an adorable book of memories.


The image is colored with prismacolor pencils, fussy cut and adhered to the front cover.


The spine of the album reads:

"Popsicle kisses and big bear hugs,
Little red wagons and jars full of bugs.
Grass stains and football games,
Oh the joys of little boys!"

How adorable is that??


All pages have plenty of room for photographs and journalling, with lots of swing tabs and magnets to secure secret pockets!

Here is a link to my YouTube video showing a walk through of the album:



Here is the link to Lori's tutorial that I followed to make tis album:

        Whimsy Stamps Build-an-Island

        One of favorite die sets from Whimsy Stamps is fun Build-an-Island die set. So many fun possibilities with this set. I made a box card at the recent Whimsy Retreat, and course had to change up the theme! I made it in a beach scene.


        I used Echo Park's Island Paradise papers for the box and to die cut the trees and beach. I die cut the boat and man from white cardstock and used my prismacolor pencils to color them in.

        I stamped the sentiment from the new 'Ant you Sweet' clear stamp set.

        I love how this card turned out!

        Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

        It's Whimsy Stamps digital release week, and again, there is a great selection!

        I used this adorable image called 'Dude' - designed by Pollycraft stamps.

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



        I printed out the digital image onto white cardstock and colored it in with my prismacolor pencils - matching the colors to the papers I had already selected. I then fussy cut him out.

        I used papers from Echo Park's mini collection 'Island Paradise'. The 3x4 journal card in the collection worked perfectly for a background element along with some flowers fussy cut from the paper.
        It was all adhered to a standard A2 white card base.

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