Don't Stress Meowt!

Hello! 
I have a fun card that seems super appropriate for these times! It is Whimsy Stamp's new Cattitude Stamp set! I colored the image with Copic markers and decided the background was a bit too plain.  So I masked the cat and ground off and used the Twinkle Stencil.
I added fun curves to the light blue paper using the new Fish and Mice Border Die. 
I added a strip of orange paper from the Giraffe paper pack.  For my finishing touch I added ribbon and two hearts that also came from the Fish and Mice Border Die. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Summer is Around the Corner!

Hello friends!
I have a quick post to share with you! I am squeezing this in between all of my Google Classroom stuff.  It's been a crazy busy time and I am looking forward to the summer for a bit of a breather.
I am sharing another Whimsy Stamp's card using the new Hippo Beach Fun.  I know, I know, I colored my hippo green.  I took a bit of creative license with it! ;)  
I used the Karin Brushmarkers and a no-line coloring technique. 
I used the Rounded Rectangles Die and layered everything with Crafty Foam Tape.  I adhered it to the striped paper from the Fabulous Florals paper pack.  I tied a pink bow vertically and added a teeny heart to the sentiment. 
Thank you for stopping by!

Calling all Dog Lovers!

Good morning!
I am a dog person for sure and this new  Puppy Paws Die set, from Whimsy, was right up my alley! I decided I couldn't go wrong with a rainbow pattern.  I used the negative pieces and added the bone and sentiment to the top.  I thought I'd add a couple of hearts too. 
I added glossy accents and used the paper from the 6 x 6 Rainbow Paper Pack. To give a bit of dimension I used Crafty Foam Tape in between the layers. It's a pretty simple card, but I liked how it turned out.  :)
Have a great day!!

Fun in the Sun! Whimsy's May Release!

Hello friends!
I have a fun card today that uses an adorable new set from Whimsy Stamps called, Hippo Beach! I know hippos are normally a gray color, but I took a bit of artistic licence  here.  ;) I colored the image using Copic markers.  I cut the main image out with the Pierced and Stitched Circles Die.
I used the Nested Hexagon Die set to create a fun card shape.  I also used the fun orange polka dot paper from the 6 x 6 Giraffe collection. I layered everything with Crafty Foam Tape. 
For a few finishing touches I glued real sand on the card.  I stamped the sentiment and clipped it under a clip I had in my stash.  I added a bit of twine and a few rhinestones.  
Thank you for stopping by today!

Whimsy Stamp's May Release!

Hello friends!
I am excited to share one of Whimsy Stamp's new May releases! This cutie is called Barnyard Squares.  I stamped it in a waterproof black ink, Versafine. I watercolored it using Karin Brushmarkers. I did add a bit of shadowing with a black colored pencil and added texture to the mane with a white gel pen. 
I used the Nested Hexagon Die to cut several layers of card stock as well as this gorgeous paper from the 6 x 6 Fabulous Florals.  I layered everything with Crafty Foam Tape. I added a lime green silk bow to finish it off. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Springtime!

Happy weekend!
I hope you are all doing well.
I myself have to admit that I am struggling a bit.  We are now quarantined until May 30.  My Cortney's birthday is May 2nd and this will be the first year since she was born, that we will not spend with her. It makes me sad.  
The only thing that keeps me going is the warmer weather and this hobby of mine.  I used the new Poppy Flower dies from Whimsy.  I paired them with felt.  I sewed a button to the middle.  For the smaller "bud" I cut one of the petals and glued the three remaining together.  
The sentiment was stamped on orange paper from the Easter Memories stamp set.  This gorgeous paper is part of the Fabulous Florals pack.   For the card itself I used the Nested Hexagon Die set. I added some silk ribbon, and a few rhinestones to finish off the card. 
Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a great weekend!

The flowers were cut from felt and uses the new Poppy Flower Die set. To make the smaller "bud" I cut one of the petals off and glue the 3 remaining petals together.  I sort of  pinch it at the ends.  I added silk ribbon and stamped a sentiment from the Easter Memories set.  I added this pretty floral paper from the Fabulous Florals 6x6 paper pack.  As a finishing touch I added a few gems from the Sparkletz-Lucky Charms.
