Candy Time

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

It’s been ages since I gave away some candy, and I found a box of unused stamps that I’ve had for a while.  There’s even a label die in one of the packs!  I’ve sorted out three prizes, so if you want to be in with a chance leave a comment and I will draw 3 random winners on Saturday

Shabby Chic Dream

After shooting a brief video for the new Crafteezee Monthly Subscription Kit last week I decided to shoot another video as I was making up a card using the kit.  It’s been quite some time since I did a video, so I back to being a beginner lol.

The only things I added that weren’t in the kit are some of the flowers and the no-hole pearls, and I still have loads of stuff left for more projects.  

A closer look at the divine lace and organza trim.  Just exquisite!

The white and silver berries were a perfect match (links at the end of the post)

Hedgehog and Ladybug

Monday saw the start of the Whimsy August 2016 Release Party over in our Whimsy Stamps and Inspirations Facebook group. The Whimsy DT will be sharing sneak peeks at the new products releasing today, so pop across and join us for games, fun, and a chance to win Whimsy prizes.

To join our release party event, just pop over to the Whimsy group any time during the week from Monday, August 8th through Friday, August 12th.

I’ve used Hedgehog with ladybug on my card today along with the super AWESOME Bold Banners sentiment stamps and matching Bold Banners dies, also available Wednesday, August 10th in the Whimsy Store..  These stamps are never going to be put away, they are going to be in constant use that’s for sure.  I asked Denise a while back if she could do something like these, and man oh man did Whimsy ever exceed my expectations.  They are fab-you-lass!!




This little cutie was super easy to colour.  I used copic markers:
Hedgie – E13, 11, 00, 000, R20; E70, 74, 77, 79
Flowers: G20, W1
Leaves: G94, YG67, 63, 61, G20, C9




I dug out some old MME papers and love how the soft yellows and corally reds work together



A mix of handmade and bought flowers with Prima doily and leaves



Keep checking back in the Whimsy Facebook group, there’s lots of inspiration and prizes up for grabs.

And what could make an easy card even easier than the gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboard shapes?  I painted the bauble with white paint and glittered the top layer before adhering them together.
