Whimsy Stamps | Autumn Fairy + Video

Happy Friday! I hope you are having a good week. Lately, we have been having a lot of things going on and one calamity after another. I am not letting it get me down. I find these things go in cycles and we can also muddle throughSmile  Last night when I was trying to write up this blog post, my computer kept freezing. After shutting it down and re-starting it, it was soon quite clear that something was amiss. Thank goodness all my files are still here but many of my programs were gone! Anyway, we will get it sorted. I re-installed my blog writer and am starting over. Sigh.

Whimsy’s new August release is just awesome. Month after month we are treated to stunning images and amazing dies. I love, love being on this team. When I saw this image, Viviane, I just felt like creating something with an autumnal feel. I guess the shorter days with the sun setting earlier has turned my thoughts to fall. That and the back-to-school shopping with the boys!

The card is smaller than the standard at a 4” square.  I think it suits the image size. I fancied it up my using one of the new dies from Whimsy’s August release. It is a stunner and I already have plans to use it again in my next video project.

To add a little bling and dimension to the water, I added stickles. I am re-discovering my love for these little bottles! I also added some gold sequins. They pick up the hue of the dress and just make the card a little more magical.

Whimsy Stamps | Baked with Love Tags + Video

Happy day! It has been a week or so since my last posting. Things got a little busy for us and will probably be for some time but I hope to keep crafting and sharing with you all… is what keeps me sane!

Today I have a cute little tag duo that I created using the Baked with Love Clear Stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. I have had the set for a little while now and was delighted to be able to pull it out to create something sweet in a minimal amount of time. These tags can easily be tied to some packaging when you are sending out some love via baked goods!

Copic coloring, fussy cutting and heat embossing were all that it took to create both tags.

I split the sentiment between the two tags so that when you look at them together, you get the full sentiment.  A neat trick when your sentiment is too big for your tags!

I added a little Glossy Accent just to add a little extra something to the tags. I love the fine tip applicator that I bought for my bottle of Glossy Accents. It never clogs and it is always ready to go!
