Sweet celebration slimline

I’ve finally gotten around to making another slimline card! I’ve coloured up stamps from MFT Stamps and then I used the filmstrip die from Whimsy Stamps for the layout. The little stamps fit perfectly into those squares! I quickly made two sentiments on the computer, as I didn’t have what I wanted at hand, and then coupled it with a word die also from MFT Stamps. A few enamel dots from Altenew and voila! Card done!

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

Whimsy Reindeer in Training

It is time for another good bye now. I’m stepping down from the Whimsy Stamps DT as well. This autumn has simply thrown me off course too much so I want to take a step back and do more “just because” crafting. I will miss being on the team and its great ladies, especially the wonderful DT leader Wendy.

For my final project I’ve used Crissy’s Reindeer in Training. I know it is a bit late for Christmas cards, but I really wanted to use this stamp and this month has been crazy so I’ve been unable to get it done to share it until now. I quite enjoyed trying to draw in a little scene for it as well. It’s good to get a head start on the Christmas cards for next year anyway, I think! The sentiment is from this set.

Here is another photo of it.

Copics used: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV20, BG000, B0000, B01, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, R22, R24, R29, E18, G14, G17, G28, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, T1, T3, RV00

And with that is wish you all a very happy new year. May 2021 bring you fun adventures and great memories!

Whimsy wee kitty in flower pot

Time to break up all the Christmas posts with something non-Christmassy! I’ve used a stamp from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps called Sweet Kitties and made a shabby slimline card. It is a no-line version and I’ve used my Copic markers as usual.

I’ve used scraps from a few different background papers which I have torn at the top edge instead of cutting, added some lace, a doily, embossed on some frantage and glued on some sequins. The sentiment is a Norwegian text stamp (which says Happy Birthday) embossed onto dark pink cardstock and then die cut using the Quick Strips die set.

Copics used: N0, N1, N2, N3, W0, W2, YR20, YR31, YR23, YR27, E08, E70, E71, E74, RV10, RV91, RV93, RV32, RV34

Whimsy bunny Row

For Whimsy Stamps‘ December release I’ve made a slimline card using the Christmas Bunny Row extended stamp. This extended version is perfect for a slimline card. They do have one with fewer bunnies as well (here). I’ve kept it super simple and just coloured it up, embossed first with white embossing powder and then some white frantage to get some bigger chunks as well. The coloured panel was added to the card base using foam tape.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, N0, N1, N3, YG61, YG63, YG67, E41, E42, E43, E44, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, V000, BV000, BV01, BV02, R24, R59

Whimsy Autumn Swing

There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps again and this time I’ve used Autumn Swing. I coloured up a little scene for her rather quickly, but it gave the effect I wanted. Proper autumn colours were needed for this card and what is better than a big tree to swing from?

Copics used: BV23, BV25, BV29, E00, E02, E13, E15, E31, E35, E37, E39, E29, YG63, YG67, G21, G43, G46, R32, R35, R37, R59, YR04, YR09, YR15, Y13, Y17, N0, N3
