Valentine's Wishes and a Fun Fold

Hi everyone, Audrey from the Digital DT here with you today.   Still dealing with frigid temperatures here as my kids will be missing their 8th day of school this winter, and 4th in the last 6 school days ugh!  Additionally, this means 3 make up days over summer, boo!

Anyway, today I want to share a Valentine's card I made with a fun fold I discovered last week while going through some printouts I had in my craft drawer of cards I wanted to try.  Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the fold nor do I know where I got the idea from, so I apologize for that.  This fold is fun because it is pretty simple, but looks like it took more effort:)

I chose to use Valentine's as the inspiration for my card today, and I am using the digital stamp set Young Love by Crissy Armstrong available at Whimsy Stamps Store.  The set comes with 3 different digital images and I have merged them together using GIMP.    Image is colored with Copics and I also added Atyou Spica clear pen to the inside of the flowers for some added sparkle.  Then I cut the image out with scissors.  Sure hope you like it and will check out all the fabulous images available at Whimsy Stamps Store!!

Hi everyone, Audrey from the Digital DT here with you today.   Anyone else out there feel like they are stuck in a never ending winter season?!?  We have had snow on and off since October and we are predicted to get more today along with another spell of bitter cold.  Our winters are typically not this long or this snowy, so I think it is really wearing on everyone.

I chose to use winter as the inspiration for my card today, which features this adorable digi "Alannah" from StampArt Design by Kathryne available at Whimsy Stamps Store.  I colored this lovely image with my Copics and then cut out with a die from my stash.  I love images that include some sort of scenary, like the fence in this one.  It was so much fun to color!!  I added Aleene's True Snow on the bottom as well as some Stickles in various places.  I found this DP that I think works great with the image and this sentiment that fits perfectly, especially because at this point, I am thinking that winter is for the birds!!  Finally I added pearl/bling flourishes to round out the card.  I sure hope you like it!!

Now Christmas and New Year celebrations are out of the way my thoughts turn to spring and I long for some nice weather. It isn't far away, I already have some pretty snowdrops coming into bloom in the garden. So with that in mind I have made a sweet spring themed card.

Hi everyone, 

I am sharing my inspiration post for Whimsy Stamps today, I loved this image as soon as I saw it, who doesn't love cupcakes and puppies - put them together and it's just too cute.

I have used Cupcake Pup image from Miss Rach's Digi's

Flower and bead trim is from my stash.
Ribbon cardstock and paper is from Stampin' up
Die is from Spellbinders.

Thanks for stopping by,


Valou - "Miss Rach Digi Card"

Good morning all! 

Valou here for my first Inspirational Post. 

I used matched papers coming from a small block and from a paper " Bazzil Cardstock Blanc ". Edges are used with "Old Distresser".

I used one of the new images " Miss Rach ", "Cupcake Pup" whom I colorized in the following way: 

- Ink "Distress Tea Dye". 
- Ink "Distress Worm Lipstick". 
- Ink "Distress Walnut Stain". 
- Glitter Stickels Frosted Lace for the whipped cream.

I cut the image and I stuck it with foam pieces 3-d in the center of a die-cut realized with "Cuttlebug" and a dies " Spellbinders-Nestabilities - Circle " and of another die-cut realized with a dies " Cherry Lynn Designs ".

For the decoration, I added the following embellishments: 

- Two paper white sheets(leaves). 
- A big pink rose (2 tones - 30 mm).
- Two roses cream (30 mm).
- A cloth green flower. 
- Two white flowers " Lily ". 

Flowers are covered with some touches of "Glitter Stickels Icicle".

Under the image, I stuck of the white lace of Calais then some ribbon " pink Organza ". I realized a knot with a piece of the same ribbon as well as an other one with a spangled pink cord. I stuck them the one on the other one to the left of my card. I also added a pink rose (20 mm), a rose cremates (30 mm) and a white rose " Kaisercraft ".

Thank you for your passage here and wishes you an excellent day!

Cupcake Queen!

Hello Whimsy friends! Kelly here from the design team with another card I wanted to show you. My image is one of the designs from Marika Collins available at Whimsy Stamps and she is called 'cupcake queen'. I have also used a couple of Whimsy shapeology dies; 'cherry cupcake tag' and 'country heart die'. My sentiment is part of the 'from the kitchen notables 5' set and I cut it out with the matching die and I lined it with stickes (you can never have too much glitter!).
Have a wonderful day!
