Wee Witches

Happy Tuesday! I have a new Halloween scene to share with you that I created using AMy Young’s fabulous Sweet November digital images.  I used a few of the new images from this Spetember’s release as well as the fence image that was released last year. I will link them all in the bottom for you.  I love, creating scenes and using digital images is by far the easiest way!

Everything was colored using Copic Markers…..so many markers! This was a weekend project that I colored as I had wee pockets of time.  After coloring the sky, I used the Colorless Blender to create those lightened areas that you see.  I also used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen and then a gold Uniball pen.


Thanks for stopping by!

You Oar Amazing!

Happy Friday! I have another Whimsy card to share today. This little dragon is rowing out on a lake and I think that the days will soon turn a wee bit to cold for that around here – time to get the card up onto the blog!

I used dies, stencils and stamps to create this scene.  I will have them all linked in my supply list!

Happy Monday!  I hope that your week is off to a good start.  It will be the first full week of school for everyone here and ALL the activities are starting up as well!

I have another Halloween card to share with you today.  Lots of components but very easy to create!

I stamped the awesome Goth Skulls Background stamp with Versamark onto black cardstock.  I then heat embossed using white embossing powder.  I created such a great background that I then cut out using the Wonky Window Die 2.  I also used the die to cut out of some light blue cardstock to create a frame.  I sponged some purple ink over top to add some dimension and to match the rest of the colors in the card.

I colored up and cut out the skulls and one of the figures from the Goth Star Clear stamp set.  I liked how the bigger skulls from the stamp set looked over top the ones from the background stamp.  The sentiment is from the Going Batty set.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Whimsy September Release

Happy Labour Day! I cannot believe that we are already here.  For me, it is the definitive sign that Summer has ended. It is over way too fast but now it is time to embrace the Fall and all that comes with it!

Whimsy’s September release is chok full of amazing Fall themed products and I am sharing a card that I made using two of the new dies:

This card was made in such a short amount of time! I die cut the Arched Window Die out of black cardstock and out of Bristol smooth cardstock. I then added some Distress inks to the panels cut out of the Bristol, distressed them with a bit of water and then popped them into the black frame.  The Dracula goes Batty Die Set was die cut out of black cardstock and then adhered to the panels. The whole thing was mounted onto an A2 sized cardbase and I was DONE!


Thanks for stopping by and if you have today off, enjoy your Labour Day!

Baterrific Halloween

Happy Friday! It is finally not so hot and muggy today! I took advantage of the fact that it was a little cooler this morning to hang out in my backyard before starting my day!

I am posting my first (but not last) Halloween card for the year!  I know it is early but what are you going to do???  I have used a bunch of the new August products from Whimsy stamps to create this spooky and cute card!  Here’s what I did:

To create the background, I diecut a piece of light blue cardstock and a piece of black cardstock using the Wonky Window Die 2The black cardstock serves as the frame and the blue pieces will be the background.  I blended distress inks onto these blue pieces using the Picket Fence Studio Blender brushes.  They are seriously a game changer and totally worth the investment.  I used the Distress Sprayer to add water drops that I patted dry with a paper towel. I then added white dots for even more dimension.

The images were colored with Copic Markers (I totally lost the list of markers – apologies) and then fussy cut them out. They are from the Going Batty Clear stamp set. The sentiment was white embossed and it also from the set. I used my Mist to ensure perfect placement.


That is it for me today. I have loads of laundry to do as well as get some school supplies and new clothes for the boys!

When Life Gives you Lemons…..

Happy Sunday! I am writing you on a very hot and muggy morning.  In fact, I was out of doors, but had to come back inside because it was just too much!  Summer is still going strong here!

I wanted to share this card with you today.  I made it a month or two ago and jsut never had the opportunity to post it.  The images and the sentiment both come from the Ant You Sweet clear stamp set and it is quite a cute and funny set!

The image was stamped using Ink on 3 fade out ink.  The stamped image fades out as you color over it.  The coloring was all done using watercolor pencils – a little change from what I usually use but so much fun!  I used a set from Caran d’Arche but have listed other company sets which I am sure will be quite similar result-wise.

The green frame and image were cut using the Notched Rectangle die set and I added a piece of patterned paper for a nice pop of yellow color.


That’s it for me. I hope this card made you smile!

Heart & Wings

Happy Friday! Hope you are still enjoying your Summer.  Our boys still have a few weeks left until school starts so we are taking full advantage!

Today’s card combines some brand new Whimsy Stamp products combined with some older ones. I thought that the heart, wings and halo from the new Gothic Die Set could also be used to create a condolence card. Sadly, I seem to be needing quite a lot of these types of card.

The wings were die cut out of vellum a total of 3 times each so that I could layer them together for a opaque and soft look. The heart was die cut out of a scrap of pink cardstock and then sponged with a red ink to create depth and dimension.  I die cut the halo out of some mat gold cardstock and then used that same paper to die cut the word “Condolences” which is from this set, as well as the intricate cherry blossom die. I think that this particular die is now discontined, but any similar style die would work.
