Whimsy DT card ~ Memories

I was so excited to receive my new Whimsy DT stamps at the weekend, I couldn't believe how fast they winged their way across the Atlantic!
I didn't know which one to do first so I stamped and coloured them side by side. Emma was first to be made into a card though! Ladies first! She is called 'Rainy Day Emma'! She is available to buy along with Baseball Connor now!
I popped Emma onto the inside of the card as the front has a collagey effect and she got lost sitting on top of it. I much prefer her here and the style of the card means that it will probably be displayed open.
I was in a real stamping mood yesterday and just couldn't stop, I stamped and inked up everything in sight! As I had coloured Emma in sepia tones I decided she needed a nice vintage type card ~ my favourite type!
The gorgeous letter style stamp is by crafty individuals which I bought at the Craft Barn with a voucher I won at Ismaki! The text and butterfly stamp are from a set by 7 Gypsies it is called Notting Hill. I have used this set loads since I bought it from the Glitter Garden a couple of months ago. I stamped the butterfly first, masked it, then stamped the text over it.

I made my own flowers again, the only way to get a great match and of course gives you a very economical embellishment!

The journalling sheet comes from a spiral bound pad by Making Memories.
A close up of darling Emma, she is such a sweetie. I can't wait to try her in all my favourite colours! No doubt you will see her in pink very soon!

Supplies: Stamps ~ Whimsy Stamps 'Rainy Day Emma', 7 Gypsies ' Notting Hill', Crafty Individuals 'CI-214'
Inks ~ Distress Inks 'Tea Dye', 'walnut stain' and 'antique linen', Colorbox dark brown chalk inkpad, Stazon jet black

Embellishments ~ EK Success flower punch, L-Em leaf punch, Woodware small flower punch, eyelets, ribbon, charm, gold thread, MM 'spiral journalling book Paperie Mocha', page from old book
