Whimsy Stamps ~ My Sweet Poppy
Hey there crafty friends. We've had a lovely visit from Greg's folks over the weekend and celebrated my beautiful girlie turning 15. It's been a blur of busy days, but so lovely to have them share in Georgie's happy day. In the middle of all this, we've of course had our New Release go live at Whimsy Stamps, so I've been a busy mama! I've been looking forward to sharing this cutie with you. She has a little of my heart, because she shares the nickname I've called Georgie since she was a little girl. Check out this cutie from our Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps. Sweet Poppy and her little ladybug friend, really are enchanting.
I found a little spot in the garden, with some climbing vines, which I thought would set up this sweet scene quite well, especially as I'd used the divisions of this frame die to drape a climbing vine over. Sweet little touches, which finished the design so nicely I think.
I used an older toadstool die, I've had it in my stash an age! I coloured up the bigger ones to mimic the main toadstool she's sitting on. I'm not sure why I like them so much, but I have a real thing for red topped toadstools. I love crafting with them.
I used elements from a couple of different Whimsy Clear Stamps sets to create the finishes on this card. The wee hearts are companion stamps in the Holiday Occasions stamp set, which I inked in blue and added some Wink of Stella over for shine. The sentiment is from the lovely Shine Bright stamp set. This fit perfectly in the wee box, though I messed up the first stamp and had to lay another square of paper over to fix my mistake. I had a number of ideas for that final double length aperture, like little butterflies and I tried a few ideas, but nothing looked quite right until I happened upon this trailing vine in my diecuts box. I think this is a simple but sweet finish to this design and really like how it came together.
We have such a fabulous line up of images in the Digital New Release this month. I'm so looking forward to having some playtime this weekend! There are several I can't wait to get creating with.

Be sure to check out the Main Whimsy Stamps New Release too, oh my goodness, there's some wonderful crafty stash there! I'll be back again soon with another crafty adventure. Until then, have a wonderful crafty week. Hugs and happy crafting xoxo
