Sweet Stampin' Challenge

 Saturday and time for another  

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

 
The theme from Team Wendy is
 
Halloween
 
 I've made a slimline card using these super cute bats from the new Batty About You stamp set by Tracey Hey. I coloured them with my copic markers and fussy cut them out. I die cut the Whimsy slimline cloud die in white card and inked it and the background panel with Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Black Soot distress oxides, blending them together. I stamped the cobweb from the set so it was off the card and then adhered the cloud die cut panel. I splattered white paint using my Posca pen and the adhered the bats once it was dry. To finish off I stamped the Happy Halloween sentiment on a couple of the clouds.

Whimsy Stamps - Devina

I'm sharing a circle card today featuring this cute Pollycraft Devina as part of the Digital Diva's DT for Whimsy Stamps.

I inked the circle with Festive Berries and Black Soot distress oxides. I then cut the Slimline Hearts die out and used it as a stencil using Black Soot. I splattered the background using my Posca Paint pens in black,red and white. I coloured Devina with my Copics and fussy cut her out. I then adhered her to the card. I cut the Happy sentiment die twice with white card for some dimension and added it. To finish off, I stamped the Halloween word from the Going Batty clear stamp set and went round it with my black fineliner.

Whimsy Stamps - SOG Wraith Mae


I'm sharing a card today featuring this cute Some Odd Girl Wraith Mae as part of the Digital Diva's DT for Whimsy Stamps.

I've made a slimline card this week. I wanted to keep it monochromatic so coloured Wraith Mae with cool tone greys and BV Copics 

I printed the digi sentiment from the Haunting Halloween Sentiments set onto the card base in position to peek through the bottom window. I cut out the Wobbly Windows die in black card and matted it onto the card base, leaving the bottom left of the middle window so I could have Wraith Mae look like she was coming out of the window.

I added the stamped Eek in the top window and finished off with the googly eyes.

Whimsy Stamps - Gnome Pumpkin Peeking

I'm sharing a card today featuring this cute Gnome Pumpkin Peeking as part of the Digital Diva's DT for Whimsy Stamp.

 I matted the spider web paper from the Vintage Halloween paper pack onto some green card and added a strip of the stripey paper across the bottom. I coloured the Gnome Pumpkin Peeking digi stamp with my copic markers and gave him a stripey hat to match the paper. I stamped the Boo! from the Going Batty stamp set and then cut it out using the stitched and pierced circle die. I spritzed some muslin cloth with Antique Linen distress oxide spray and when it was dry I adhered it to the card on the right and added the image on top. I offset it off the edge and trimmed it straight.

I love all the Whimsy Gnomes!

Today sees the New Digi release from Whimsy Stamps for October

 I'm sharing a card today featuring Meljens Zombie Stella as part of the Digital Diva's DT.

 I cut out my cardstock using the Zig Zag Rectangles. I then blended Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Black Soot starting from the inside working out.. I then gave it a spritz with Hocus Pocus and Empty Tomb Distress mica stain which gives a glimmery look.

Whimsy Stamps - Pip

  I'm sharing a shaped card as part of the Digital Diva's DT for Whimsy Stamps .

 I cut the apple shaped card on my ScanNCut and made an inky backgrouns using Distress Oxies. I then did some stamping using the criss cross background stamp from the Distressed BG and Inksplats set. It's very subtle but effective. I stamped the sweet from the Gnome set randomly over the background. I added some white paint splatters and doodled around the edge. Once I coloured Pip with my Copic markers I fussy cut her out and grounded her on a piece of card embossed with the Thatched embossing folder. I finished with the Too Sweet sentiment from the  Happy Headlines set.

Vera Lane Studio - Esmee In Paris

Happy Saturday!

 Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring this week's new release called Esmee In Paris which is available from the Etsy shop.

I've made a simple little postcard. I brayered the Lapis and Ruby paint down either side of the postcard leaving the middle white. A quick French flag background!

I then added some of Janet's washi tape for AALL and Create which was perfect as it's French words. Next I stamped randomly using the X or O stamp set. I then doodled around the edge with my black fineliner. Some white paint splats to finish off the background.

I added the beret to Esmee, coloured her with my Copic markers and fussy cut her out. I positioned her in the middle of the postcard on the white panel.

Ooh La La!

Tres Chic!

Whimsy Stamps - Cinnamon With Sunflower

  I'm delighted to have been asked by the lovely Wends to be a Digital Diva for Whimsy Stamps for the next few months.

I've made a slimline card featuring Cinnamon With Sunflower. I wanted to make an inky background so got out my Distress Oxides and had some fun with autumn colours. I cut out the base panel with the Slimline Card Builder die and embossed with the Thatched embossing folder. I cut the top panel with the Slimline Marquee die and popped it on 3D foam for dimesion. I coloured the image with my Copics and adhered her on the right. I printed the Autumn sentiment on my PC and cut out with the Zig Zag Rectangles dies.The Hello was tiny alphabet stickers and some dewdrops to finish off.

Vera Lane Studio - Useful Quotes

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring this week's soft release called Useful Quotes which is available from the Etsy shop. I've paired it with an older set called Pleiades.

I've made a slimline card this week. I blended distress oxides in Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot in order starting from the centre and working outwards. I then stamped the #468 Scripted Stars in Chipped Sapphire and then when it was dry I overstamped it with my Versamark ink pad and clear embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss embossing powder. I used my Tim Holtz stamping platforn to get it perfectly lined up. I spritzed some water over the background and dried it off. Then I flicked some watered down Paperartsy Snowflake white paint over the background with my fan paint brush. Using my white gel pen I added some white sparkles.

 

Once the background was finished I printed out the sentiment quote and image and coloured her with my Copic markers, adding some white dots to her dress. I then fussy cut her out along with the stars. To finish off I added a piece of washi tape and adhered her to the background along with the quote.
