La La Land Halloween

I canceled several subscriptions to join in the La La Land kits, that's how badly I wanted to join in the fun.  I was tickled pink when I received my La La Land project kit for October. I swore to myself that the first chance I had ...I would dive right in and make one or all of the lovely projects.  Well...I found a moment and did just that, dove right in and had so much fun. I just love the cute stamps and dies.  I couldn't wait to start layering and making a La La Land project. I think I did pretty good! Check it out below.  :)

I just saw my November kit and WOWZERS!! I WILL make time for it. 

Thank you for stopping by! :). If you like what you see, I hope you will pin it or share it in places you hang out.

It's A Bird! It's A Plane! It's Itty Bitty SuperHero's at My Whimsical Little World

I am so excited to share the Superhero duo.  "Superhero Boy" and "Superhero Girl "mean so much to me for a couple of reasons. First, my eldest daughter loves – I mean LOVES!!! – Marvel. I adore her passion for art. I wonder where she gets that from? She’s enrolled in an animation program doing what she loves: drawing. I’m so proud of her. Her vocation is a hero in a cape.  
Secondly, a few years back I had two very adorable little neighbors: a boy and a girl with such cute little faces. They moved south, but my memory of them is fixed and can be observed in the digis. They had facial features that I find so beautiful and unique. See if you spot them!

 Stay tuned, because I have a goal with the Superhero girl. You will see her again in November getting into mischief, possibly flanked by a sidekick. LOL!! And it won’t end there. I plan to develop a series from these two little characters.  I love creating them; I hope you love receiving them just as much.

Make sure to pop on over to our NEW DT member's Amy Almedia's Blog to find out who she made this superhero card for! A very brave little fellow.  Amy made him such a cute card!  He will love and treasure his card.  It's the little things. :) 

Make sure to stop by My Whimsical Little World Facebook group. It's nearly Halloween and we have a couple of fun days planned for you in the spirit of Halloween.  So head on over tomorrow for all the details. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! :)  If you like what you see ...I hope you will pin it or share it where you hang out.

Day #2 Trick or Treat with the Some Odd Girl

It's going to be a fun week with Some Odd girl!  We are tricking and treating this week at the SOG blog.  So get ready for loads of fun and some tips and treats. :)

Here we go!  Here is my tip for you. :)  

Applying ink on your stamp:
I've been to classes and heard stories and seen videos on stamping. Some swear by one technique and say no to the other. What is the right way /best way to apply ink to a stamp? Well that depends on the look you want..the look you're going for.   If you want a perfect crisp stamp, then pat your ink with slight pressure over the stamp.  You can also hover over your ink pad and press the stamp into the ink ...but take care when using shallow stamps that the ink does not get into the grooves of the stamp and on your block.  If you want an aged look then in a circular motion lay the ink on your stamp, gently...this is also great for not wasting ink. Remember doing this? You ink up your stamp and then on a sheet of paper stamp to get rid of ink and then you stamp your project.  If you do the second technique you won't have to do that anymore are in control of the ink!

Happy Halloween! Here is this weeks project using Some Odd Girl digi stamp Pumpkin Kody.  
I also remembered I had some wood paper from ARC Crafts and used it for my fence.  Looks pretty cool!


Stop by the Some Odd Girl Facebook group to join in the fun of challenges and some pretty interesting conversation.  Some great tips are given at the group!
