HapBee Hello

Hi Friends,

I hope you are all well. Summer is well on its way here in Sydney, the days are getting longer and the temperature is rising! So for my DT card for Whimsie Doodles I decided a fresh summery card was in order.  It was time to colour up this adorable bee - I love it. This image is called 'Pollen for You' and can be found here.

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - Pollen for You
MFT Stamps - Label Maker Sentiments 
Doodlebug Design Paper Pad - Sunkissed
MFT Die-namics - Label Tape
Taylored Expressions Dies - Build a Scene Rolling Clouds
MFT Die-namics - In and Out Stitched Rounded Square Stax 
MFT Die-namics - Grassy Hills 
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Tim Holtz Distress Glitter - Clear Rock Candy
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass
Ranger Glossy Accents 
Daisy Embossing Folder

I coloured the image in with my copics and added some rock candy to the wings and some glossy accents to his nose. I then fuzzy cut the image out.  For the background scene I used some die-cut clouds as a template to sponge a cloudy sky.  I then die-cut a grassy hill from some grassy DP paper.  I created a white frame using two stitched rounded square dies, which I then mounted to frame the scene. I stamped the sentiment in black ink used the corresponding die to cut it out. I adhered this to the side of the frame.  I created an embossed white daisy background using a die I picked up in the dollar store. I mounted this to the card base and then mounted my frame on top.

All Things Fall

Hi There,

I hope everyone has had a great weekend.  While we are very much well into spring over here in Oz, I have an autumn card to share with you today. That is because it is challenge time once again over at Whimsie Doodles.  Your theme is anything goes with an optional twist of 'All Things Fall'.

Here is the card I came up with - another super easy one to put together. I decided to leave the card sentiment free so it could be used for any particular occasion, however this image does come with its own punny sentiment - " You leaf me breathless'!

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - Leaf Me
MFT Die-namics - Wonky Stitch Rectangle Stax
Neenah Cardstock - Desert Storm
Carta Bella Digital Paper - A Perfect Autumn
Ribbon from Stash

I coloured the image in with my copics and fuzzy cut it out. I then mounted it onto a die-cut of desert storm cardstock, which in turn I mounted a die-cut of white card. For the background some autumn tree paper was adhered to desert storm cardstock. I piece of green ribbon from my stash was then attached and the whole panel mounted onto the card base.

You're Fangtastic

Hi there,

As much as I don't celebrate Halloween, I can't help but make Halloween themed cards as there are so many awesome craft supplies out there.  I have to say, I love the Whimsie Doodles digi stamp set Little Boo's. It has super cute, versatile characters that are not scary at all.

I wanted to make a masculine card and had my husband in mind when I made this one. I chose the vampie image from the set, not because my hubby goes around in a cape, or sucking blood for that matter, but because I wanted to use the sentiment You're Fangtastic!!

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - Little Boo's Vampie
MFT Die-namics - Blueprints 13
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Circle Stax
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Standard Circles Large
Mpress Nesting Dies - Frizzy Circle
Core'dinations Cardstock - Midnight
Digitalfield Digital Paper Pack - Halloween 2

I coloured the image in with my copics  and framed him using the dies listed away. I adhered some spider paper to some back card stock and then mounted my circular frame in the centre.  I used my computer for the sentiment and printed in red ink. I then die-cut it out using a die from blueprints 13. I mounted this onto some black card which, in turn, I mounted onto the spider paper.  I did this so the sentiment wasn't lost against the designer paper. A very quick and easy card, but I love how it came out!

Fruity Notes

Hi Friends,

I really ought to double check when I schedule a post. Once again it's been an epic fail and its taken three days for me to notice!  Note to self - remember to check you have clicked on the correct month - haha!

Anyway, I would like to share two small note cards I made using a very versatile stamp set from Whimsie Doodles called Sentiment-edibles. It comprises of six images with sentiments and can be found here.

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp Set - Sentiment-edibles
MFT Die-namics - Pierced Square Stax
MFT Die-namics - Stitch Mini Scallop Square Stax
MFT Paper Pack - Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots
Doodlebug Design Paper pad - Kraft in Color - Color
Ribbon from Stash
Ranger Glossy Accents

I coloured the images in with my copics and used pierced square die to cut them out. I then layered them using foam tape onto designer paper before mounting onto white card cut using mini stitched scalloped square die. To one card I added a piece of ribbon, to the other some cardstock. I then mounted my images centrally onto the card. Easy peasy.

Thanks for popping by to take a look. Hope to see you again.
