Gilbert ~ My New Beau

This is probably my favourite card made using my new (my first!) digistamp, Gilbert the Ghost. I had this image in my head for a while, wishing it could be made into a stamp, and then I thought, "You dosy mare! You could draw that!" So I did, and Gilbert was born.

If anyone would like a copy of him, please leave me a comment, and I'll do a draw a week from today (Friday), evening time, GMT. (If you have left a comment for me in the past four weeks, you can have a copy without going in the draw.. just let me have your email address if I haven't got it already.) After the draw, I will make him available on sale.

There are three stamps.. Gilbert on his own, Gilbert with the text stamp underneath, and finally just the text stamp.

What do you think of my new fella?

The Kraft CS is from Elzybells, as is the white ink (Sugar Candy). It's brill! I've used it here to highlight the bumps after embossing the CS with Cuttlebug's Snowflakes folder. The ink is VERY juicy, so I smudged it a bit, but I quite like that effect.


  1. Chris, he's just gorgeous-such a cute little fellow in his red hat. Looks like you might have a new job on the way!
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  2. Cool Chris, you didn't tell me you could draw. So unusual but fun too. Reminds me of Casper The Friendly Ghost because he's so likeable.

    Hugs Debbie xx
