A Halloween Shaker

This new zombie frame stamp from Whimsy Stamps new release is perfect to frame a full Halloween shaker card!

1013-halloween shaker

I used a few new Whimsy Stamps products for my shaker:

I created a 5 x 6 1/2 card base which is great for a shaker to fit into the size A7 envelopes.

I first created the top by die cutting the black frame by using the negative from my die cut.  It was the perfect size to fit my black heat embossed zombie frame acetate sheet into!

I set this aside while I created the base by inking smooth cardstock with ripe persimmon, carved pumpkin & dried marigold.  I then stamped the sentiment in versafine.

Next, I put the shaker card together by adding lots of gems and spiders from the creepy sparkletz pack directly onto the center of the orange, making sure to spread them out and face them upwards.  I then doubled the foam tape to make it super open for my thick gems to move and adhered the acetate on top.

To finish the card, I added the moon & clouds and the adorable black kitty.  I love that this black kitty is a solid stamp, so no coloring required!  I added some black flock (which I have tons of, don’t you?!) to make her fuzzy!

Copic markers used:

  • moon & clouds-Y15, Y13, Y11, Y00, C00 & 0

If you still haven’t seen the amazing new release it is chock full of Halloween and Christmas!

A Dr. Suess Christmas

This sweet new Ellie stamp reminded of Horton from Dr. Suess and so I had to go with some Dr. Suess colors for this card!

1006-dr. suess elephant

I used a few awesome Whimsy Stamps products for this card:

1006-dr. suess elephant side

To create my background, I first heat embossed the sentiment in gold and then inked the card at an angle using festive berries, worn lipstick & spun sugar.

I then added gold mousse over the polka dot stencil and set aside to dry.

While the mousse dried, I stamped adorable Ellie, colored with copic markers, fussy cut out and added sparkle and gold dots.

To finish off my card, I pop dotted Ellie and added a few green domes and white nuvo drops.

copic markers used:

  • Ellie-W5, W3, W1, W0, W00, R32, R30 & 0
  • Tree-BG13, BG32, BG11, BG10, E97, E95, Y38, Y35, Y32 & 0

Snowflake Kisses

It is release time at Whimsy Stamps and I am sharing my adorable winter card with you using some of the new release available now!

1001-snow toads

The new release products I used:

I must say that this card took me under 2 hours, which is a super fast card for me, and has a lot of wow factor!  I love when a card gives me both of these!

1001-snow toads side

For the background, I heat embossed the snowflake frame and sentiment in white and inked with peacock feathers, tumbled glass & shabby shutters.  I love this color combo, I really feel it pops the snowflakes beautifully!
