Whimsy New Release ~ Cinnamon with Sunflower

Hey there crafty pals. It's August!! How did that happen?! This year is zooming by. With a new month, comes a new Whimsy Stamps Product Release and oh my, are you gonna love this one?!! We have the most fabulous line up from the Digital Vault and this wee cutie is called Cinnamon with Sunflower. I just love her in the Autumnal hues. 

I've used my Copic Markers to colour her up and went for something a little different with a dark Kaisercraft paper from their 'In The Attic' set to create a more Autumnal tone to the piece. I decided to colour up the Sunflower as a red Sunflower. Yes, they are a thing, and they come in a range of beautiful Autumnal tones. I took my inspiration from this pic.

This card I created for my brother's Au Pair, who is from France and is feeling quite homesick right now. She turns 20 this week and we are attending a 'French themed' evening for her tonight to celebrate, so I thought it would be nice to create a card in theme. I just LOVE how this turned out and I'm quite excited to give it to her. 

I went for a pretty design, with ribbon and sparkly embellies. I used a lovely notched rectangle die to cut the image and a matching mat in a plain toning cardstock to layer behind. I added two ribbons, a satin base ribbon and a sheer organza ribbon which I tied a double bow with. I added a little Eiffel Tower to finish the design.

I am so excited about this latest release. I always love colouring up these sweet Rustic Sugar images and it's such a pleasure to do the cover art. I get such a kick out of that! We have the sweetest line up of images this month, I'm seriously swooning over the gorgeous Autumn and Halloween themed images. I'll be back soon with another crafty adventure. In the meantime, click through on the link above or on the thumbnails below to head straight to the store for a closer peek at this fab new release. Hugs and happy crafting,

As You Like It: Favourite Flower ~ I love simple flowers, Daisies bring my heart great joy and I've always loved Sunflowers. So much so, when I was living in England, the Aromatherapy Clinic I ran was named 'Sunflower Studios'. My favourite working years were running that business. So my card today features a Sunflower.

Update: I discovered this a little late, but still so so nice to see I'd won the prize over at Colour Crazy Challenge. Thanks so much and apologies I've been too busy to check in time.

Second Update: I made the Top 5 at Craft Rocket Challenges. So delighted, thank you so much!!


Beautiful card she will love it. I love Autumn
