Pirate Shaker Card


Hi friends, for today's Whimsy Wednesday I have a birthday shaker card made with this months new release set "Arrgg Pirates" from Whimsy Stamps.  The dragon was colored with Zig Clean Color Real 
Brush Markers and cut out.  The set has two different skulls, one is a little larger than the other, the smaller one was stamped three times, cut out and used inside the shaker, isn't it cute?!



The background paper is from the Summer Breeze 6 x 6 Designer Paper Pad and glued onto the front of a white card.

Maynard Bear with special guest - Pamela Schumacher

Hello again! I am back again today to share another creation as a guest designer for Whimsy Stamps, and just couldn't resist this utterly adorable little bear called Maynard. The moment I saw this little cutie I knew I was going to create some kind of baby card with a shaker element!

I stamped this little cutie with Copic friendly ink onto X-Press It Blending card, and then colored the image with Copic markers.

~Copics~ Grays: BV23/20-C4/2/0/00 Pinks: BV20/R22/21/20/30/01/00/000 Yellows: Y19/15/11 

I added details to the scarf with a white gel pen.

This was such a fun little card to make! I used the Kinetic Straight Basics Die Set for the pretty little border, and the Shaker Maker Combo Die Set for the shaker element. The pretties inside the shaker are Sparkletz-Coral Coast

 Thanks so much for joining me today! Happy crafting!!

Maya - special guest - Pamela Schumacher


Hello everyone!

I am back today with another guest design team project for Whimsy Stamps. I must say...I am SO loving the gorgeous fairies!! I can't get enough of the cuteness!

For today's project I used the gorgeous rubber stamp called Maya. Who can resist all that sweetness? Such a versatile image that could be used for just about any occasion.

I stamped my image with Copic friendly black ink onto a sheet of X-Press It Blending card, and colored the image with Copic Sketch Markers.

The sentiment is from the Just Dance Clear Stamp Set. The sentiment was arranged differently in the stamp set, so to make it work for this card I stamped it twice using a masking technique. 

The frame and the sentiment are popped up with foam tape.
The die I used is from the Shaker Maker Combo die set. Paper is from Maja Designs.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
Happy crafting!! ~ Pam xx

If you're happy and you know it ...

Hi All,

Whimsy Stamps released some really fun animal stamp sets this month on the adopt don’t shop theme – how cool is that (read more about their campaign at the bottom of this post)!  I chose the doggy stamps for my post today, me being a doggy fan and all. 


I kept this almost one layer so the doggies could take centre stage.  I coloured the Adopt don’t shop – dogs stamp with copic markers, then layered up 4 of the new Smile large word die cuts and adhered that to the card and finished off with a sentiment from the stamp set, a bit of striped paper and some black gems.

I have so many dog loving friends that I know this stamp set will get a lot of use!


Whimsy Stamps will donate $1USD to the Gulf Coast Humane Society for every Adopt Don't Shop Cats and Adopt Don't Shop Dogs stamp set sold! Read more about it HERE.

Come join Whimsy Stamps Adopt Don't Shop Facebook PARTY starting today 2/14 for Pet Adoption Awareness, lots of fun pet lover sharing, games and prizes.

Faye the Fairy

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

This month I thought I'd share a card I designed for Making cards Magazine. I was given a photo of some beautiful winter scenery to use as inspiration.


Now I realise Faye the Fairy isn't really a wintery image, but I wanted to play with her so I made the colours reflect the season instead!


I love colouring on kraft card with Copics. It gives such a gorgeous effect. Just remember the fibres in this kind of card are looser than smooth cardstock, so the ink is going to move more freely. Not a problem if you are aware of it, as you can adjust your colouring accordingly.
