Whimsy Stamps August Release News & Inspiration - Day 2

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the second day of the  
Whimsy Stamps August 2017 Release!

You can find all of the awesome new stamps right HERE at Whimsy Stamps!

We are having a party ALL WEEK at our FaceBook Inspirations Group where we'll be sharing all the new release makes and having some fun games with prizes.

My card today features a sweet stamp from Krista Heij-Barber called 'Fall Fox'. I have also used the word dies from the 'Smiles, Happy, and Celebrate Word Die Set' and 'Birthday, Wishes, and Magical Word Die' Set, all available at Whimsy Stamps.


My image is stamped in Momento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Copic markers. I then die-cut around it and chalked a sky.


The papers are from the Die Cuts With a View Green Stack 4.5x6.5" paper pad, and I've embellished the card with MME Sleigh Bell Ring Wood Dot.


Hope you like today's card... I'll be back soon with another August release card!

Whimsy Inspiration - Pumpkin Witchy

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for Whimsy Stamps DT, using Pumpkin Witchy rubber stamp by Kirsten Winkelbauer.


I've also used the Haunted Halloween digital papers by Tracey Wray. Unfortunately the cute spider web, black cat and bat are from an old Whimsy Shapeology Halloween die set which I didn't realise are no longer available. (oops!)


I coloured the image with Copic markers, fussy-cut and double mounted over cheesecloth onto the card. I finished with some Whimsy Stamps Summer Breeze Enamel Dots and a few flowers.


Hope you like it!
