Whimsy Stamps is a family owned business and online store located in the United States. We carry a line of whimsical and fun rubber stamps made from deeply etched red rubber and mounted on EZ mount foam. We also have a digital stamp collection with new releases on the 1st of each month. We've recently added an online gallery for our DT and registered users where you can find lots of samples using our stamps. We also have an inspirations blog with daily postings and product info and our featured stamper Saturdays

Tuesday and another challenge from Digital Tuesday which is being sponsored by Whimsy.  Here is my creation and I have used one of the lovely digital stamp available from Whimsy.

For this project I chose the above digital stamp which is very fitting with all the snow we've all been having.  I coloured with copics and added stickles to the bear and snow elements.  I used a fine liner pen to create the border.

The backing papers were some left over scraps from my crafting stash.  I used a Magnolia doily border die and snowflake, a Marianne die for the other snowflakes and a Spellbinders label die.

I embellished with ribbon, bow and pearls.

I do hope you like it and please visit the other DT blogs for more inspiration and ideas.

Best wishes,


This week's challenge at CCC is Foliage and is sponsored by One Stop Cards and  Doodle Pantry

This is my DT entry for this week's foliage challenge and I have chosen to use a Sweet pea image.  I coloured with copics and spica pens.

The backing papers were digital papers from Creative cottage and I feel they create a icy/wintery feel.  I added stickles glitter to the leaves to emphasis the icy feel.

I embellished with ribbon which I criss-crossed, flowers, foliage leaves (which I cut with a Marianne die), pins and pearls.

Hope you like and please visit the other talented DT for more inspiration.

Best wishes,

For this challenge I chose to use another Kenny K's images which I'm loving using.  I decided to do this one monochromatic - black and white.  I coloured using copics and spica pen as is my favourite medium.  I also used a spica pen to create the border around the image.

Again with black and white being so striking I didn't feel this card needed a lot of decoration.  I chose backing papers from my Forever Friends CD Rom which I've been using quite alot as I like the contrast of the black and gold papers.

I used a Magnolia die to cut the tag and a Marianne die to cut the flower embellishments.  I used some polka dot ribbon and a few gems to complete this project.

Hope you like as I like to boldness and cleaness of the black and white - not that I want to go back to black and white tv or photo's - although it's alway good to have the choice!

Best wishes,


For this project I used one of the Kenny K's digital stamps and added a hat and present from the accessory pack.  I coloured with brown, purple and silver (grey) copics and spica pens as the challenge theme of Sweetpea (should have checked more carefully think it might only be Sweetpea images!)  Added a little bit more than I would have liked to her cheeks as she looks so washed out!    I used a Blueberry stickles glitter which was added to fur trim of the hat.

I kepted the design very simply.  I used backing papers frpm Crafters Companion and Create and Craft.  I criss-crossed some ribbon to the base of the card.

And then simply embellished with a bow, charm, flowers and gems.
