The sentiment is a very old sentiment stamp from Whimsy stamp unfortunately no longer available, it says

no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky.

November Digital Release - Whimsy Stamps!

November already, I have barely had time to adjust to it being 2017 and it will soon be over!  
It really is true, time flies by faster the older you get!
Just popping in with a quick post today as it is Whimsy Stamps Digital Release Day! 
Fabulous  new digi images, papers and sentiments are available from today in the Whimsy Stamps Digital Products section! 
Today I used the Beary Cute Bears sentiment stamp set by Tracy Wray! 
They are so perfect for gift tags, you can also get them ready coloured which would make your tag making even faster!  
I cut the tags out with the Whimsy Stamps Stitched Tag Dies.
 I haven't added bulky embellishments to these as I am going to laminate them so they can be reused every year!  I get upset by the amount of paper waste each Christmas so this year I am using pretty Christmas fabric as my wrapping and plan to reuse that each year too!

Cute Card Thursday - Vintage!

This week the theme over at Cute Card Thursday is
I felt this little witch looked old fashioned enough to qualify!
We are sponsored this week by Aliciabel.
I used a Whimsy Stamps Digital Image by Crissy Armstrong. 
I love to alter tissue boxes to use as decorations.  It was a very simple process, I covered all edges in washi tape first.  Then I cut out card bases and stitched them.  
I decorated with 3x4 scrapbook cards with Halloween phrases for a quick finish.  
 Witchy girl is coloured with prismacolor pencils. 
 I added assorted embellishments which are mostly from the Recollections collections in Michaels.  

 This panel I added a stamped image, this was a Whimsy Stamps stamp but no longer available as was the die frame.

Cute Card Thursday - Circles!

I am still playing catch up after being away for the Whimsy Stamps retreat last weekend so I am late updating my blog for Cute Card Thursday!   We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up! 
The theme this week is Circles!  
I started this wreath inspired wall hanging at the retreat where we were given this cute image by Crissy Armstrong Penguin Christmas Sweetheart
We were so busy at the retreat that I only partially made this up so I finished it once I got home and added the many die cut branches to create a wreath effect.

Cute Card Thursday - Autumn!

The theme on Cute Card Thursday this week is 
Another recipe book for me this week!  I think this could be my next obsession!  I love decorated books and have decided these would make great gifts!  At the very least I want them for my grown up kids so I can give them all the family recipes! 
I knew this penguin from Whimsy Stamps would be perfect!  
This is Crissy Armstrong's Penguin Baker a rubber stamp coloured with Prismacolor pencils although I couldn't resist a bit of paper piecing on the apron and oven gloves.  
I also used the fabulous digital Give Thanks sentiment set designed by Tracy Wray.
Whimsy Stamps are our sponsors at Cute Card Thursday this week so play along and you could win some digital products!

Whimsy Stamps Digital Release

Whimsy Stamps have a brand new digital release just out today! 
New products include fabulous images by Crissy Armstrong and papers and sentiment sets by Tracy Wray. 
As usual I can't resist Crissy's cute little penguins! 
I made a recipe book a few years back to hold all my favourite well used recipes and it is well worn now so I thought Penguin Apple Bushell would be so cute on the cover of a new one!  
I love to bake apple pies and crumbles so it could not be more perfect! 
The image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  
I added a small sentiment from Tracy's Fabulous Fall sentiments that were released in August.  
I kept everything flat on the book as I have overdecorated books in the past and the embellishments have not held up to the abuse a book gets!

Whimsy Stamps July Rubber Release!

Whimsy Stamps have a fabulous new rubber release today!  
There are 12 new rubber stamps, 10 Clear sets and 5 Shapeology dies! 
They are for sale in the Whimsy Stamps Online Store from 10 am ET! 
These adorable penguins illustrated by Whimsy artist Crissy Armstrong were just irresistible!  
I decided to make them into a Halloween wall hanging and I look forward to seeing these cuties on my wall every year! 
They are called the Penguin Trick or Treaters! 
I coloured them with prismacolor pencils. 
I picked up a plain rustic backing from Michaels and painted it with black Milk paint and then used a white acrylic for the background for the text.  I picked up those small letters from Michaels too!  

 It is hard to tell in the first picture but I decoupaged the middle penguin and the pumpkin to give the picture more depth.  
Thanks for dropping by!
