Filled with Magic with Whimsy Stamps

Tuesday, October 26, 2021

I think this will be one of my last Halloween cards for the year! I have plans for one more this week, but this is the last one I made to be sent out in the mail. 

The inspiration for this card is from the latest Craft Roulette #84 but I made a mistake... I forgot that one of the requirements was for the card to be landscape... So while I love my card like it's shown below, I had to do some quick peeling and re-gluing to submit it to the challenge! 

The four parameters for this challenge were: 

1. Project: slimline landscape 
2. Colors: orange background 
3. Element: jar or glass 
4. Random: three layers 

So down below you can see how I adjusted it to be a slimline card in landscape, I used orange cardstock to create an orange background, there is a potion jar of "eye of newt" and the three layers on the card are the orange background, slimline frame die cut and my stamped images!

So while my card had to be adjusted, I think I still like it more in the original layout - what do you think? Did you participate in the latest challenge? Abigail went a complete different way with her card and you can check it out on her new Instagram account - @abi.taylor.made!

Do you think Santa takes a vacation? 

I think think Santa heads to the beach, grabs a coconut cocktail and enjoys the rest of winter while relaxing on the sand! Today I have a video sharing how I created this fun scene using the Whimsy Stamps Calm Christmas stamp set along with some dies and the Sand Sprinkles to make it a shaker card! 

Have you used the sand to make a shaker card yet?

Merry Pup-Mas! Christmas Puppies Slimline Card with Whimsy Stamps

Thursday, October 21, 2021

Abigail and I had some fun creating these fun fold slimline cards using the latest Craft Roulette parameters. Abigail chose the fold and overall theme and I picked the products! I have really been loving making these cards together on the weekends.

Have you watched Craft Roulette? Here's the YouTube channel and website if you haven't and want to learn more about the live shows and challenge!

This week's parameters for a card was to have a FUNN Fold, use any 4 colors (not including neutrals and metallics), an element of "It's a Dog's Life" and XOXO. Abigail liked the idea of a Z-Fold slimline card and we both liked the Whimsy Stamps set Pups for Christmas. We used lots of neutrals along with red, yellow, green and blue and included XOXO in our sentiment!

Have you tried a z-fold slimline card before?
