My card today features a cute and fun stamp set called 'Ice Cream Truck' from the Clearly Whimsy Stamps Collection by Krista Heij-Barber, and available at Whimsy Stamps.
Pssst.... Sneaky Peek! I couldn't resist adding a couple of the awesome new Whimsy Stamps Enamel Dots which will be available next month!


The images are stamped in Momento Tuxedo ink to create a little scene and then coloured with Copic markers.


The papers are from Echo Park 'Hello Summer' Collection, and I've covered the join with some pretty love heart washi tape.


I finished with some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts a couple of fabulous new Whimsy Stamps Enamel Dots.

Thanks for visiting, and hope you have a wonderful week!

Inspiration - Kitten Kindness!

Hi Everyone!

I have some Whimsy Stamps inspiration to share with you today!

This card features a sweet new stamp set called 'Kitten Kindness' from the Lee Holland Collection. They are adorable, and come in a set of three gorgeous images and lots of versatile sentiments... purr-fect for any occasion! (Couldn't resist!) Of course they are available at Whimsy Stamps.

This little fellow has managed to get his paws on a delicious looking cupcake, and has a suitably cheeky look on his face!


My naughty kitty is stamped in Momento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Copic markers, then fussy-cut and popped up on a Nestabilities Labels 1 with a Decorative Labels 1 border.


The papers are from a very old My Mind's Eye Lime Twist - Life of the Party 6x6 paper pad, cut I thought it was cute as it had tiny cupcakes on it!


I added lace to cover the join, popped the sentiment below the image, and finished with a few Kaisercraft Chino pearls.

Hope you enjoy my cheeky little kitty today!
