Whimsy April Release - Old Fart


Goodness how fast this year is going, I can't believe that it's already April solidly into Spring, (although with all the cold and snow we've had recently that's really hard to fathom!).

Anyway, since it's April, we have, of course, a new product release at Whimsy Stamps. There really are so many fabulous new goodies, but for my card today I've been playing with the 'Old Fart' clear stamp set.

This is a fun little set with a fun image and lots of hilarious sentiments to go with. Great for those in your life of a more 'seasoned' age.....provided they have a solid sense of humour of course.

I kept things simple, stamping in black ink and colouring fairly basically with a mix of distress ink and Zig markers. I added some patterned paper along with some die cuts and a sentiment from the same paper pack that went well with the image and stamped sentiment from the set that I used on the card.

I finished with a few of Whimsy's glittery enamel dots.

I've added links to products at the end of my post, just click on the pics to go there.

Whimsy - Unconditional Love


I have a super quick and easy card to share with you today, using the Clear Stamp Set
'Unconditional Love'
This is a brilliant set for all you pet lovers card needs.
My card today could be used for several occasions, including a sympathy card for a pet bereavement.

To make my card a made a top folding vertical A2 card base from black cardstock, and then cut a narrower panel from more black cardstock.
I used my anti static tool on this panel and then stamped the large image from the stamp set in Versamark Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I did the same for the sentiment below the image.
I used some gold glitter tape to make 2 vertical lines towards the edges of my card and then mounted the panel on the base card with some craft foam to pop it up a little.

Finally I added a few drops of gold Nuvo Drops to finish off.

Whimsy Stamps March Release - Donut Birthdays


I have a cute little card today using some new products from Whimsy Stamps March release. I've added pics of the products used at the end of my post, clicking on these will take you to the item in store.

First I made a simple background using the Farmhouse Basket stencil and my distress inks. 
I stamped a sentiment from the set at the top and bottom of my panel, then I stamped and coloured 3 of the stamps from the Donut Birthdays clear stamp set with my Zig Markers. This set does not come with matching stencils, so I fussy cut them out, which with this set is super easy. I popped them up on my main panel with some foam tape.

I cut a background for my panel using the new Shaker Maker die set and popped the main panel on top with some craft foam. I stamped the last part of my sentiment on a scrap of Bristol Smooth and coloured it with my Zig Markers to match my donuts, trimming it down when dry to a small rectangle and popping it into place with some more foam tape.

To finish I used a few enamel dots.
