Online Thievery

Putting this out there to educate you... a Whimsy stamp set design along with some dies were recently stolen and are for sale online.  If you find your favourite stamp or die selling for a lot less than at the company where they originated, they are most likely low quality knock-offs of illegally acquired designs. Please do not purchase them! You might have to pay a little more for designs that were made with integrity, but by buying from legitimate sites, you’re keeping your favourite companies and artists in business and receiving a higher quality product. Please do not support this thievery because that makes you a party to it.

If you can imagine thieves ambushing a truck full of baked goods (which they didn’t make and they didn’t buy the ingredients for and they didn’t pay staff to make) and then turning around and selling the stolen goods in their own store, at cheaper prices (making it appear more enticing)while claiming it was theirs, would you buy your bread from them? if you knew it was stolen from the honest, family-run bakery? just so you could save some money? Please be aware of this practice and help keep honest family-run businesses in business. We all loose when we support thieves; conversely, we all benefit from supporting honesty and integrity.

We wish to keep bringing you original high quality designs, but we can only do this with your support. You can help by educating yourself and your fellow crafting buddies. Please spread the word. Thank you.

Penguin Magic

There's a brand new release at Whimsy! This is Penguin Magic, one of my red rubber images for this June release.  I had a blast using my Leaf Foliage Die Set 1 and Leaf Foliage Die Set 2

Fairy and Unicorn Greetings

This is my new rubber image set for Whimsy Stamps called "Fairy and Unicorn Greetings".  I recorded myself colouring the body of the unicorn and you can view that video HERE.  I have two versions - that one is under five minutes, and I added a longer one HERE at just over 12 minutes for the die-hards LOL! 
Also used on this card: 
Paper: Starry Night
Copics for the unicorn body listed in the video. 
Thanks for looking!

Penguin's Bunch of Bunnies (and new Puppies~!~)


Hi Peeps! Can't chat long... I am typing as the puppies are asleep, but they won't be for long, lol! Yes, we have a couple of new pups, American Cocker Spaniels, Freckles and Dot! I will show you a photo of them too!
On my card I used Penguin's Bunch of Bunnies, a new rubber image I did for Whimsy! Also on the card are papers from my set of digital papers that I created! I think they are pretty, even if I do say so myself... also used are words from a chipboard set by MIC, and sold through Whimsy Stamps too.  I also stamped some party hats from a couple other Whimsy sets ...
Wish I could hang around, but puppies are calling!

Gift Horse

Hi People! Here is a card I made using "Gift Horse", my rubber image at Whimsy Stamps! Instead of using the party hat, I made a Santa hat and turned it into a Christmas Card for my niece.  She loved it! 
I coloured the image with a combination of Copics followed by coloured pencils. The snowy background was drawn on with a white gel pen. The beautiful neutral background paper is by Tracy Wray at Whimsy stamps, from the pre-printed pack, "Christmas Cheer". 

I have entered a couple of challenges with this card.  Firstly, the Whimsy Inspires Challenge, which is a monthly challenge.  It is always Anything Goes, as long as you have a Whimsy image, or, Whimsy Paper, or Whimsy Die on your card, you are free to enter! And, there's always a 15$ Gift Voucher for the store to one randomly chosen winner at the end of the month long challenge.  So, don't hesitate to join! The best part is, you don't have to spend a cent! You can get a free Whimsy image or paper download to print off and use at home, by visiting HERE! and so you are all set to join in! No excuses! lol

The second challenge is from SCS, the Ways To Use It challenge, and this week it is "Let's Circle Around" (to use circles on your card). 

Thanks for looking!
