Dracula Going Batty at the Castle! - Whimsy Stamps

 Hello everyone!

I hope you all have a fab weekend planned.

I will be mainly watching The Ryder Cup and The Word Cycling Championship - and the footie! - phew , I'm never bored and I LOVE sport!

I have been having a play with some 
Halloween goodies!

I thought it would be great fun to use the 
as a Halloween backdrop!...

So I added 
and 
I used Distress Oxides to create the inky background along with mica powder and white paint.  (I'll pop a list of the colours I used at the end of this post for you).

The brick detail is made with a stencil and distress ink.  

Dracula is die cut with black glitter card and white card to create a reflection.  

The ghosts are die cut in vellum.

The sentiment is heat embossed in white.

Thank you for popping by today,
take care and... happy creating!

Pups for Christmas - Whimsy Stamps

 Happy Monday everyone!

(There is such a thing honestly)! 

It has been a while but I am finally back from my summer break and really excited to show you what I have been up to with the latest goodies from wonderful 

There is super new release happening today and I simply could not resist the beautiful 
I decided the set was so gorgeous it deserve to showcased in its entirety so I made a 
'stamped all over' card which I coloured with Copic Markers

I'll pop a list of the colours I used at the end of this post for you!

I thought the pups were so cute they deserved shiny noses so I could n't resist adding a dot of glossy accents!  (:

I used two super Whimsy Stamps die sets to cut the shape of the card,
and 
Slimline Scenic Countryside Die

The design is layered onto a piece of brown card.

Finally I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in white

Flower Wishes - Whimsy Stamps

 Happy Tuesday friends!

I hope you are having a good one and the heat is bearable where you are - can't lie, it is a touch hotter than I like but I must n't complain, it is lovely to look at! (:

Today I have a card to show you made with some new products from wonderful

and 
I don't usually colour flowers, I find them difficult but I gave myself a prod and had a go at a no lines technique with Copic markers!  /-:

I also frightened myself by going quite CAS - I find leaving white space difficult!

Overall though I was pretty chuffed with how this card turned out!

I coloured the white card die cut with Wink of Stella clear pen, it looks lovely and shimmery in real life but the camera has nt picked it up!

...and honestly!!! - you are going to NEED the
and 
in your life - they are soooo versatile and usable!

take care of yourselves and stay cool!

Magical Wonderland (Slimline Connected Rectangles - Whimsy Stamps)

 Happy Monday friends!
(There is such a thing - honest)! (:

Today I am showing you a card I made with a gorgeous new 
slimline die

This die is soooo elegant and I decided to use it to make a Christmas card to contribute to my own personal 'two Christmas cards a month' challenge!
I created the inky piece of card by blending Distress Oxides in Seedless Preserves, Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose over a piece of Strathmore Bristol Vellum Card.

Then splattered the card with water and Mica Powder.  When everything was dry I splattered white paint over it.  

I then die cut a piece of white hammered card with the 
and trimmed the inky card so it fitted just inside it.

Then again using white hammered card I die cut the gorgeous 
and trimmed and played the trees and deer behind the rectangles.  Once I was happy I glued everything down.

I stamped the Magical Wonderland sentiment from the
onto a piece of hammered card and die cut it with a 

Finally I added some Glamour Dust to make the whole scene twinkle!
