The Digital Vault ~ Pollycraft Cuties

Hey there lovely Whimsy friends
I'm sneaking in today with a sweet share

The Divas have been working since late last year with
the sweetest range of images, new to the Whimsy Digital Vault
and I've gotta tell ya, we are all more than a little in love with these cuties!

Some of you may recognise these images from a previous incarnation
but they're here in the Whimsy Vault now and having swooned
over them in the past I'm fillin' ma boots with these cuties!

I speak of course, of the Pollycraft range which
has found a new home here with us at Whimsy Stamps.
The fact that they are digital images, I just love, because
the price point means I can have 'em all!

The Divas have worked their magic with these images
which we hope will inspire and delight you.

Scratchy Plaid Thank You Card

Happy Saturday! Jeanette here to share a simple thank you card with you. I have combined a variety of Whimsy Stamp products, both old and new to create this card!  You could easily switch out the ink colors and use another word die (Whimsy has so many lovely ones) to create a completely different card for a different occasion!

The starting off point for this card was the awesome new Scratchy Plaid Background Stamp.  To create this look, I used two different ink colors.  I first lined up my card-stock panel onto my Misti Platform, being careful to line the edges up with the lines on the Misti.  Then I laid the stamp over top and  lowered the lid to my Misti which picked up the stamp.  I inked it with light orange and then lowered the lid to stamp the paper. Now, this is the important bit.  Do no remove the stamp from the lid.  Simply wipe it down to remove the residual ink.  What you will move is the card-stock.  I moved it over to the next line up and the next line to the right on the Misti. I then inked up my stamp with some red ink and lowered the lid to stamp the second set of lines.

To complete the card. I adhered my inked panel onto a card-base and cut out some vellum using one of the dies that come in the Envelope Edger Die Set.  It adds interest without detracting from the fun plaid background.  I used the Thanks Word and Shadow Die Set to create the sentiment.  Using the gold foil paper added a little touch of elegance to the card and I also added a strip of the gold foil paper to the top of the card.  This helped hide the adhesive that I used to add the vellum to the card. The final step was to add a few coordinating  Summer Breeze Enamel Dots.

Military Heros

Happy Whimsy Wednesday everyone!  My card today is featuring this months new Military Heros Clear Set from Whimsy Stamps, because every day is a good day to show our Military men and women that they are appreciated.

The flag is two pieces so you can stamp the stripes with red then the star panel in blue.  And look at those boot prints, I just love them!

Have a creative day!

Special Guest - Candice Fisher - Bunny Balloons

Our very special guest Candice Fisher is back on the Whimsy blog today sharing her cutie dutie slim line Bunny Balloons card with you today, how cute is this...?!
I have an adorable slim line card for you today using the cutest bunnies from the Bunny Balloons stamp set at Whimsy Stamps. I love Deb Davis's collections and this stamp set is one of her fabulous creations!

I used three of Deb Davis's Whimsy stamps products for this card:
I have really been enjoying making slim line cards and my crafty friend, Nicky Meek, has helped me with the right size to create with and she inspired me to create this card with one of her designs! My go to slim line cards start with an 8 1/2 x 11 thick white cardstock that I trim to make an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 size card base. This allows to create your card base and leaves enough left to add to the front of your card! You can use 9A size envelopes that can be found at your local craft store or online easily and they even make plastic sleeves to store this size!

Now onto how I created this card! I started by trimming watercolor paper to leave a large white border, inked with cracked pistachio oxide ink on 2/3rd's of the bottom and inked the top with a small portion of the sun rays stencil using dried marigold. I then splashed with some shimmer sprays in similar colors to the inks. While I let that dry, I stamped the sooo adorable bunnies from the bunny balloons stamp set, the clouds from the fly by stamp set, colored with copic markers, and then fussy cut out.

On the top of the card I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper, stamped with the get carried away sentiment with versamark, heat embossed in WOW ultrafine white embossing powder, and then inked with the dried marigold. I added the smallest bunny along with the upside down bunny and some of the clouds varying with pop dots and gluing down for dimension.

On the bottom, I trimmed another piece of watercolor paper, stamped the on your special day sentiment using WOW ultrafine white embossing powder and inked with cracked pistachio. I then added the large bunny with a few clouds and then added some white sequins on the card. 

I hope this card brightens your day and makes you smile as it does for me! You can share your creations with us on Whimsy Stamps and Inspirations on Facebook and you can also join the current Whimsy Stamps challenge for a chance to win!

Dorky Dragon

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

I've got to start with Dorky Dragon. I mean, come on, HOW adorable is he? His little face!

After I managed to stop cooing and drooling, I coloured him up with Copics and gave him a FaDoodled edge. 

But as I looked at him, I got an urge to do something with kraft cardstock and the new Scratchy Plaid Background seemed the perfect partner to give it a lift. I've stamped the background out in white.

I've also got a thing for the Whimsy Stamps Enamel Dots, these are from the Summer Breeze Set so, it seemed only fair to whack a couple of those on too...
