Whimsy Magazine and an Advent Calendar

Woohoo the 4th issue of Whimsy Inspirations Magazine has been published and myself along with some of the Wild Orchid Crafts DT have been published.  I got to work with those amazing new Christmas sentiments and Wee Stamps, I tell ya I was in heaven lol.



And here’s a tiny sneak peek of one of the projects I did for the magazine.  If you want to see more follow the link above, there are over 100 pages of inspiration from the most amazing crafters and it’s all FREE!


And I have not had a chance (again!!!) to make a card for this week’s Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and it’s one I really did want to take part in as it’s all about PINK as it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month but again the time has just run away from me so I thought I would share another of my magazine cards using the gorgeous Advent Calendar stamp from Lili of the Valley


The flowers are die cut from Marianne Design Poinsettia dies and I just popped a button in the centre after threading through Divine Twine.  The gingham ribbon, twine and buttons are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The image was coloured with Copics, colours used are R29, 27, 24, 22; YG67, 63, 61,G20; YR24, 21, Y11 and then I used E41 and E40 for the shading around the tree.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Circular Sentiments set from Lili of the Valley and the papers are Nitwit Collections.




  1. Oh yes I just saw this mag yesterday and it is sooooooooooooo awesome and your work is simply stunning once again hun, and so is this card here. You´re an amazing artist Bev and I so wish, I could make anything like all your work some day too. I just love to watch it.
    Have a great week-end and lots of fun.
