4 cards - Have a Joyous Christmas with Whimsy Stamps

Saturday, December 9, 2017

Hi friends. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great day and weekend. I have 4 cards to share with you today, all using the beautiful Joyous Holiday stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. This set is available as part of a holiday bundle at an incredible price of just $34.99.  See below for the graphic of this bundle - regular price is $70.  And don't forget about the special sale that Whimsy Stamps is having all December long. Click here for the details for your chance to save up to 20% off your order.






For each of my cards, I stamped the large poinsettia image and a sentiment from the Joyous Holiday set. I then broke out my PolyChromos colored pencils for the first time and just started coloring.  I tried to do a bit of shading here and there. You can see that my coloring is simple and that I definitely  need more practice but this was fun and somewhat relaxing.

Thanks so much for visiting today. Crafty hugs!






Here is all that is included in the Holiday Bundle.

4 Christmas cards for TupeloDesignsLLC using Concord & 9th

Friday, December 8, 2017

Hi friends and happy Friday! I have 4 Christmas cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC, all using fun products from Concord & 9th. I am using the Trim the Tree stamp set and the coordinating dies.  On each of my cards, I started by adding a water colored backdrop using the Gansai Tambi watercolors.

On my first card, I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Trim the Tree set with some Ranger embossing powder in red.   I then heat embossed the string of lights from the same stamp set with some Ranger gold embossing powder


For my second card, I heat embossed another one of the sentiments using the same gold embossing powder.


My third card also features the same gold embossing with yet another sentiment available from the Trim the Tree stamp set. This time, however, I first die cut my water colored panel with the tree image from the Trim the Tree die collection. I then die cut it two more times and stacked the die cuts. I did the heat embossing on the top layer.  I just love the fun look


For my last card, I die cut the tree again three times for added dimension. On the top layer, I ran the die cut tree through my Big Shot with one of the stitched dies from the Trim the Tree die collection. I love the fun lines and texture it adds to the tree.  Is tamped a few of the ornament images and the tree trunk and the card is complete after adding a heat embossed star.


I hope you've enjoyed all of these cards today. Thanks so much for dropping by today - I truly appreciate it. Crafty hugs!




A Rainbow Background with Whimsy Stamps and the newest December Release is NOW AVAILABLE

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Hi friends. I have a fun rainbow card to share with you today using a stamp set that is currently 75% off so make sure and scroll down but first, I wanted to let you know that the newest release from Whimsy Stamps is now available.  I've linked all the products below and they will take you directly to the store page.



My card today for Whimsy Stamps does not feature the newest release but rather a super fabulous background stamp set - Winter Afghan - that is currently on sale for only $4 which is 75% off!  I heat embossed it in white and then added lots of Distress inks over top of it for a rainbow background.  I stamped the sentiments which are all from the Simple Sentiments set onto thin strips of card stock and then popped them up with some foam tape. Some Nuvo drops in Blizzard White finish off the card.

Thanks for visiting. Crafty hugs!

Whimsy Stamps December Release Day 2

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Hi friends and welcome to Day 2 of the December release for Whimsy Stamps. I am using the super cute Cupid in Training stamp set today. This set and all the others being released will be available starting on December 7th.

I stamped the image in black ink and kept it real simple by just adding a couple of touches of red coloring. I then stamped the fun heart string image and the sentiment in a red font. I finished off the card by adding the fun stitching detail onto the sides of my focal panel using one of the dies from the Hand Stitched Borders die collection.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back later this week with another project featuring the new release products.  I also want to let you know about an awesome sale that is happening all month long at Whimsy Stamps. Click here for all the details.


2 Hello cards for TupeloDesignsLLC

Monday, December 4, 2017

Hi friends. I have a couple of cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC. This is one of my favorite stores to shop at because Dan carries such a wide range of products, many of which are discounted each day. And shipping is always FREE in the US with no minimum purchase.

For my first card, I started by taking some Color Burst Powders and sprinkling them onto my Tim Holtz water color card stock. I used the Ultramarine Blue which is part of the Brights Collection, Aquamarine which is part of the Caribbean Brights Collection and Indigo. I then spritzed some water over them and let them do their thing.  I die cut the Big Hello from MFT from some white card stock and added it on top of the panel. The panel was die cut with the largest die from MFT's Inside and Out Stitched Diagonal Rectangle Die-namics.


My second card today uses the super fun Split Chevron Cover-up die from MFT.  I die cut it three times from different colors of card stock. I then added the same die cut sentiment as I used above, Big Hello.  I die cut it three times and stacked them one on top of another for a more dimensional look.



Sending the Happiest for Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Hi friends. I am back today with a  card for Whimsy Stamps. I started by creating a background with a stencil from my stash and some Distress inks. I then die cut the Doodled Doily die from some white card stock. I love all the detail on this die.

I adhered it to the card and then stamped the sentiment which is from the Big Balloon Celebrations tamp set.

Thanks for visiting today. Crafty hugs!

4 cards with only Patterned paper and Epherma for TupeloDesignsLLC

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Welcome friends to another post for TupeloDesignsLLC. I did something a bit out of the ordinary for me with my cards to share today. I only used some patterned paper and epherma from Echo Park's Twas the Night Before Christmas collection on each of the cards. These made for real CAS cards.

You can see that I kept these very simple and easy to mail. I wanted to add a few cards to my stash but didn't have a lot of time.  I'm hoping to make more at a later date.

I hope I've inspired you to pull out some patterned papers and die cuts for some quick and easy cards.  Crafty hugs!
