Wee Love You


I have some BIG news to share with you today.

I am now a designer for Whimsy Stamps!    WoooHooo!

I am so very excited to join this wonderfully creative team and company and use their gorgeous stamps!  I am truly very honoured to be a Whimsy Designer :)

Most of you know that I have been a Stampin Up demonstrator for many years and the decision to leave has been a very hard one. Although I still like a lot about Stampin Up, my love of colouring is the reason I made that decision. I was feeling very disappointed with the amount of line art images that Stampin Up have to be honest and I have been craving stamps to colour with my copics that are cute and pretty. 

So I decided to try applying for the Whimsy Design Team. I crossed my fingers and everything else I could and I am just so happy that I was one of the lucky ones chosen :)

So this is my first Whimsy card :)

And she was so much fun to colour and so was the snail.  Isn’t he the cutest snail you’ve ever seen ?!




This card is for the Whimsy Challenge this month to use Ribbon and Lace.

I made this card for my little Granddaughter who is about to turn one.  She probably won’t think much of it at the moment but hopefully her Mummy and Daddy like it and she might appreciate it when she’s a bit older  :)


Ingredients :

Stamps : Whimsy Wee Love You Slow Much

Card : basic grey, white, going grey, pink pirouette, silver shimmer, pip, celery

Ink : memento black, copics, white pen

Other : big shot, square scallop die, timeless type alpha, MFT mini rolled roses, bird punch, pip satin ribbon, crochet trim, rhinestone, faceted button, bakers twine, sewing machine


Please take a look at what the rest of the Design Team have created and play along with our theme challenge.  There are some wonderful cards to inspire you and some great prizes to win as well :)




  1. Now this must be the news that a mutual friend was alluding too and wouldn't share! Glad you are happy with your decision Kathy as I know how much you love colouring with your Copics. I think your card is gorgeous, love the layers and especially that cute image! I hope that we can still catch up at times (we have yet to craft together!), even though we are not mutual SU! demos any more, and when the busy tax season is over for me. Enjoy the remainder of the school holidays. Chat soon and congratulations!
