Mt grandaughter loves unicorns, totally and utterly so when I stumbled across this absolutely divine image Mystic by Crissy Armstrong well ….. the card all but made itself.  Love love love how this one turned out especially as there are no frilly frou-frou’s on there lol.

The unicorn was so easy to colour, I used C1, 0, 00 for his body and B91 for the shading.  For the mane I used BG49, 13, 11, 10 and again a touch of B91 for the shading.  Then I gave the mane and his horn and hooves a dab of Wink of Stella for some sparkle.


I rubbed some Cracked Pistachio and Brocken China Distress Oxide ink through the Formal Lattice Stencil in the bottom corner, and die cut a star shape from the Pierced Stars die set into that layer for the shaker part, I love the pierced holes around the outside.  I used Broken China to make a background to behind the star and used the Star Galazy Stencil and some glimmer paste to add some bling to that.  Some sequins for extra sparkle because all little girls need sparkle Smile


I die cut some clouds and stars from glitter card for some extra texture and interest and finished the  card off with a heat embossed sentiment from the You’re My Favorite stamp set.
Ava loved her card.

Water Garden Girl

There are two new Marina Fedotova stamps that have been released by Whimsy Stamps this month, one a fairy and the other this darling little Water Garden Girl.  So, so sweet.


I coloured her with copic markers:
Hair: E50 , 53, 25
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Dress & Flowers: R59, 85, 81, RV000
Goldfish: YR24, 31, 30
Leaves: G29, 03, 20
Water: BG000, 0000


I used words from the new You’re my favorite stamp set, I stamped this onto a round doily die cut from Tattered Lace.  The square the image is on is also by Tattered Lace.  I managed to pick up three full sets for £30 on a promotion a couple of months back, I love me a bargain Smile


I used some old My Minds Eye papers, I have so many of these pads that have never even been unsealed!  My bad. 


I finished off the card with some mulberry flowers, lace, DooHickey dragonfly die cut and some distressed organza ribbon.

It’s new release time at Whimsy Stamps and there’s a smorgasbord to choose from this month – from the sweetest new fairies and fun stencils as well as the amazing new DoveArt stamps.  Yes, DoveArt is now with Whimsy Stamps!!  Annnd, you may even spot one or two of Crissy’s penguins, so pop on over to the website to take a peek. 

I’ve linked the products used on my shabby chic card at the end of the post.  I’ve used one of the new sentiment stamp sets and stencil.


I sponged some FlitterGlu through the stencil and once it was dry (which happened uber fast) I applied some gold foil to the glue.  It’s the first time I’ve attempted this and I really love the result.


I used mulberry flowers for this one, I have boxes of them and really do need to start using some of my stockpile up.

Flower Fairy

I’ve a Flower Fairy card today, I love these little sweeties so hard.  I pulled out papers from my scraps box, and colour her up to match using copic markers, and finished it off with some foamiran flowers and clay berries and a sentiment from one of my favourite sentiment sets.  I’ll link all the products at the end of the post.


So, I made a note of the colours I used then …..yup, you guess it, threw the darn thing out when I was clearing my desk.  I’m pretty sure these are the colours I used.
Hair: E50, 21, 25, 29
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Peach: R000, 00, 12, 24
Green: G20, YG03, 63, 67
Wings: Y0000, YR30
Stars: YR24, 31, 30


I added some Wink of Stella to her clothes and hair, and distress glitter to her wings and stars.


The berries are made using clay.  The flowers were made using the Peony Flower die as well as a 5 petal punch set that I’ve had for years.  The calyxes are hand cut from squares of green foamiran.

Sending Hugs

I’m back with a shabby(ish) card, I really do love this style.  I used the fabulous Lattice Background stamp from Whimsy Stamps again, this time I heat embossed right over patterned paper.  Oh, and excuse the darn glue string, I just spotted it whilst writing this post, off to hunt the pesky thing down now lol.

I stamped and heat embossed the large shamrock stamp from the Shamrock Wishes stamp set, which is the CAS set for January, onto some vellum and cut it up into three heart shaped pieces which I used behind the flowers and leaves.

I picked up the dinky little bottles (already filled) from The Range, IIRC they were £1 for a pack of 8 – total bargain!

I printed out a sentiment from my digital Vintage Sentiments available at the Whimsy Stamps store and popped in some bling behind and around the flowers because …. bling!
