Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit.



Aren't these stamps just adorable?!  I love me some panda bears! The design possibilities are endless!  

I kept this card super simple. I started by using Whimsy Stamps new Card Builder windows die set to cut out the white panel background. I masked off the top and bottom using tape and then ink blended fired brick distress oxide to create an ombre look. I added some splashed of water and used a paper towel to dab them off.

While that was drying, I stamped the panda from the Panda Butt stamp set and colored him in using my prismacolor pencils. I added a little red sweater on him to match my color combo! I cut him out using the coordinating die.

Once the inked background panel was dry, I stamped the bamboo and sentiment on top using my Misti (just to make sure I got a good crisp stamp). I popped the panda up on the card using some foam tape.

I then adhered this panel onto some red cardstock from the kit and then onto an A2 black card base made from the cardstock in the kit also.

Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, be sure to place your order by August 25th.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!

Cute Card Thursday - Charms

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

I couldn't resist using another adorable penguin stamp from Whimsy Stamps new release this month - Penguin Superhero by Crissy Armstrong.




I stamped the image and colored it in using my prismacolor pencils. I then used my Scan'n cut to cut it out.

I used the small star stamp from Whimsy Stamps For the Men stamp set - stamping with versa mark watermark ink and then heat embossing with white embossing powder. I love the subtle look this gives on the white cardstock.

I then stamped the 'simply the' sentiment from Whimsy Stamps You're my Favorite stamp set onto a piece of scrap red cardstock. I again stamped with versa mark watermark ink and this time heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut this into a simple banner, along with some black and white cardstock from my stash.

I stamped the 'Best' wording from the same Whimsy Stamps You're my Favorite stamp set.

I added a couple of star charms onto the bakers twine at the top of the card and then adhered this panel onto a standard A2 kraft card base. The penguin was then popped up onto the front of the card using pop dots.

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

Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting

A Dog Can Change Everything

I'm up on the Crafty Doodle Chick blog today with one of my favorite stamp companies - Whimsy Stamps.

I love all of the new dog stamps that Deb Davis is designing for Whimsy Stamps and I couldn't resist putting this card together. These stamps and dies are all available from the Crafty Doodle Chick Store.




I used the Whimsy Stamps Puppy Paws Background stamp to stamp a piece of kraft card with Versamark Watermark ink. I then heat embossed this with transparent embossing powder. I love the tone-on-tone look. 
I cut this panel down to 4" x 5 1/2".

I stamped the sentiment and paw print onto some patterned paper from my stash using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. The stamps come from Whimsy Stamps Unconditional Love stamp set.

I then used the Whimsy Stamps Wavy Edgers die set to cut this stamped panel along with some cream cardstock from my stash. I then stacked these onto the kraft panel.

I adhered the  panel onto a cream standard A2 sized card base.

Whimsy Stamps August Release Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of August's release of clear & rubber stamps, dies and stencils at the Whimsy Stamps store

Another of the new stamp sets that is being released this month is 'Purre Love'. I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it! I love anything with 
animals but the fun sentiments on this set really had me chuckling and reminded me of my own cats!


I love the fun sentiment inside the card....


I decided the image really worked best on at CAS style card. It speaks for itself and needs no real embellishments.

I stamped the cat, ball of wool and sentiment all on a white cardstock panel. I colored them in using my prismacolor pencils.

I cut out the black scallop frame using Whimsy Stamps 'Shaker Builder - Sweetest Birthday' die set - one of my essential dies in my collection! I added the to the white panel and then popped it all up on craft fun foam.

I stamped the sentiment for the inside of the card on a white panel and backed it onto some black cardstock for a thin frame.

All of this was adhered onto a standard A2 grey card base.

Don't forget about this month's Customer Appreciation Stamp Set - free to all customers who spend $75 or more on a single retail order in the Whimsy Store!

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 the Whimsy Inspirations Blogand leave them a little love.

Whimsy Stamps August Release Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of August's release of clear & rubber stamps, dies and stencils at the Whimsy Stamps store

Another of the new stamp sets that is being released this month is 'Penguin Cake'. Yay! Another Penguin from the wonderful Crissy Armstrong!



My daughter's favorite colors at the moment are black and white with a touch of pink - this was my inspiration for this card as it will be her birthday card!

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

I recently bought myself the new Sliding Window die from Sunny Studio stamps and thought this would work perfect for this image and gift card.
Here is the inside of the slider....


The window is the perfect size to fit a gift card or sentiment in. I decided to stamp the sentiment on the card that pulls out from the top. I used 'You're my Favorite' and 'FaDoodles' stamp sets to stamp 'have the Best birthday'.

The panel was adhered to a standard black A2 card base. I added some pink ribbon from my stash for the pull tab at the top. Some pink enamel dots from the Summer Breeze collection finished the card off.

Don't forget about this month's Customer Appreciation Stamp Set - free to all customers who spend $75 or more on a single retail order in the Whimsy Store!

MFT Sketch Challenge #396

This is one of the first stamp sets I bought from MFT and I still love it as much today! I used 'Jingle All The Way' for the images and sentiment on this card.

I colored the images using my prismacolor pencils, adding some white gel pen details and clear wink of stella for some sparkle. I used the coordinating 'Jingle all the Way' die-namics to cut them out.

I used patterned papers from my Christmas stash and added the stitching on the white cardstock using MFT's 'Stitched Strip' die-namic.

I added all of these elements to a standard A2 white card base, popping up the santa, girl and sentiment strip on pop dots.



Thanks for looking!
