I'm trying hard to ensure that most cards I make now are for a specific purpose or a particular person, otherwise I end up stockpiling cards that aren't suitable for my friends and family, lol! Therefore, for today's card I decided to make a birthday card for my dad (whose birthday is in February). I inked up the train image from the gorgeous new Vintage Transpotation 2 stamp set, designed by Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy Stamps:


Supplies
Whimsy Stamps Vintage Transpotation 2 stamp set
Tim Holtz Distress ink pads: Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
Bazzill Bitter Chocolate & Kraft cardstock
Teresa Collins 'World Traveler' 6x6 paper pad
Tim Holtz Alterations Bigz Die - Gadget Gears

Stampendous Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Enamel
Natural Kraft Button Twine; Chipboard; Metallic ink pads; Versamark ink; 4mm gold flatback pearls

I followed Sweet Sunday Sketch #174 for my layout.  In hindsight, I wish I'd added some clear embossing powder to the image, just so it pops more!

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

Christmas Candy Canes

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share a decorated bag and a handmade box that I made to go with the 2 cards I posted earlier this week.

I decorated a pre-made kraft bag and with Authentique 12x12 'Wonder' paper. I used the gorgeous candy cane stamp from the Whimsy Stamps Vintage Christmas stamp set as the main focal point (coloured with Copics).  This fab stamp set includes several sentiments as well as images, and one of them is the extremely useful "To ... From ..." stamp that I used on the attached tag:


I created an exploding triangle box (think that's what it's called, lol!) from kraft card and decorated it with the same papers. No stamping for this one!


Thanks so much for popping by today - hope you have a great Thursday!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today I have another quick card using the gorgeous Authentique 'Wonder' 12x12 papers. For this card I used the Christmas Tree stamp from the beautiful Whimsy Stamps Christmas Tree in Words stamp set:


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Whimsy Poinsettia

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  We planned to decorate our Christmas tree yesterday afternoon, but unfortunately a few things conspired against us, lol!  Hopefully we will get it finished later tonight after dinner. :)

This morning I have a quick Christmas card to share that I made with the poinsettia stamp from one of the older Whimsy Stamps rubber stamp sets called Vintage Christmas. I adore this set!


Colouring has been done with Copic makers. Papers are from the 12x12 Authentique 'Wonder' line and have been distressed with Vintage Photo ink.

I would like to enter this card into a couple of challenges:
