World Cardmaking Day with wonderful Whimsy Stamps...

Hello everyone!

There's a world of fun to take part in for 
World Cardmaking Day at Wonderful 
Whimsy Stamps

We have a blog hop and an instagram hop all with prizes so please join us! 

Here is the card I made to celebrate this special day for all of us cardmakers!

I found a fabulous copic colouring tutorial on You Tube by

I was so inspired by the background colouring that I had a go at it myself!  I have been wanting to improve my background colouring and I really enjoyed this!

To make this card I stamped and masked the 
far too cute to spook images from the 
Whimsy Stamps

I left the masks in place and coloured the image - background first - with Copic Markers.

I removed the masks and completed the colouring.

I am so happy with how this turned out!

I stamped the trick or treat sentiment using the 
Whimsy Stamps

Finally I mounted the design onto a piece of turquoise mirri card!

I die cut one piece of blended card with the fabulous new 

I trimmed the second into a rectangle measuring 19cm x 7cm and layered the die cut and the rectangle of blended card onto a slightly larger piece of white glitter card.

I stamped the gorgeous and scrumptious images from the

The world of full of gorgeous colourful inspiration and we have some great events to prepare for  - like Halloween! 

We have a fa-boo-lous 
Whimsy Stamps event for you all to join in with throughout October!

Today's card is made with a fabulous stamp from
October new release...
and prepare yourselves because this one even scared me a little! 

It is a PERFECT halloween image or a super design for that person in our life who is a little weird and let's face it, we all know one, have one or are one!

To make this card I scribbled some purple and grey Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers onto my glass mat and added some Crafter's Companion Clear Sparkle Pen.  Then I sprayed the inks with water and presses a piece of watercolour card onto them.  Ilifted the card up and dried it with a heat gun.

I heat embossed the 
 image onto the coloured background in black and trimmed it down.

I mounted the image onto a piece of black glitter card and then onto design paper from the super new

Finally I added a sentiment from the fab 
stamped onto a piece of torn vellum.

Our lovely and clever Deb (Amped2Stamp) at

These new

To make my halloween card I first cut a piece of black glitter card with the fab

I then blended Distress Oxides in Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves over a piece of smooth card and splattered it with water and Perfect Pearls.

I then hand cut a piece of that card to fit behind the apertures in the Marquee die cut.

I used the 
to cut the word BOO with blended card.

 I created a cobweb mask with a die stuck it to a piece of smooth card and blended Distress Oxides in the same colours over it.  I removed the mask to reveal the cobweb pattern and trimmed it to also fit behind the die aperture.  With black ink I stamped spiders onto the cobweb.  The spiders are from the fabulous 

I tore the blended card into strips and fixed them to a piece of black glitter card. I left a gap in the strips to let the black card show through and fixed some small google eyes on it!
I trimmed that panel to fit behind the aperture in the die.

I created a rectangular card blank the same size as the 
and stuck the three panels to it, fixing the black glittery die cut over them as shown.  I fixed the letters to the centre panel with 

With black ink I stamped the cat from the

I decided a good place to begin was with these cuties by Krista -Heij-Barber for

You can say 'aaaahhhh'
(aren't they just the cutest and the fluffiest)!

I die cut three pieces of Kraft Card with a 

I stamped these gorgeous images onto the tags and coloured them with Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils.

I used Mod Podge to add 
Glamour Dust to the yellow bows and furry hat.  (Such a shame the pics don't quite pick that detail up)!

I stamped sentiments from the
onto Kraft card and cut them out into little rectangles and fixed them to the tags as shown. 

I die cut three more tags and embossed them with folders.

Finally I punched a hole in the tags with a red brag and fixed the image and the embossed card together with twine!

I heart you...

Hello everyone,

Oh my word - the weather !!!

It is bucketing it down here and we had very bad thunder storms last night!

On the positive side though, it's a very good day to be inside crafting!

Today's card now lives safely with it's birthday recipient and I can share it with you!

I have used one of the many beautiful images by 
Stamping Bella

I so enjoyed making this card!

The image is stamped in black ink on Bockingford card and coloured with Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils.

I used the matching Snapshots Polaroid Die to coat the frame for the image and placed it on some patterned paper with an organza ribbon bow.

The sentiment is from the 

Ingredients from Dies To Die For
