Whimsy Stamp's March Release

Hello friends!
Whimsy Stamps has done it again! They have released the prettiest dies and stamps this month.  I am so excited to have a religious die set and ended up making 3 cards so far with it!  I will post the other two later this week. I used the new Savior Die set and the Savior Clear Stamps.  I created the background using the Sun Rays Stencil with pinky tones. 
I used the Pierced and Stitched Circle die to create the sun.  The frame was created using the Slimline Birthday Scallops Die and the Slimline Scenic Countryside Die.  I love mixing all of my dies to create unique frames for my cards! Silk ribbon was tied with a mix of posies, little eggs, and twine from my stash. I did add a few leaves using the Build-a-Pumpkin die set. 

Be sure to head on over to Whimsy to check out the full release! 
Have a great day!!

Your Crazy is Showing!

Good morning and happy Sunday to you! I have one more card to share with you from the Whimsy Stamps February release. I used two new sets here, Meme FYI and the WTF Background stamp.
The background was stamped on cream card stock in black.  I distressed the edges a bit with a very light brown ink so it wasn't so stark.  My snarky gal was colored in Copics and cut out with Pierced and Stitched Circle Dies.
I layered all of my pieces using Crafty Foam Tape.  I added a bit of pink twine and decided to embellish my image with teeny pearls and a flower for her hair.  

I will be back tomorrow with Whimsy Stamp's new March release! So be sure to check back!
Have a wonderful day!

Whimsy's New Release part 2!

I had so much fun with Whimsy Stamp's Cubed Die Set that I had to make another card! This one kind of took on a life of it's own, as I built the cubes and then started stacking and layering them.  Then thought, why not make a shaker card?  Go big or go home right? ;)  I created the glittery frame using the Wonky Window Die 2 and cutting the inside part of it out. I added these fun Color Wheel Sprinkletz inside shaker.  I adhered a piece of acetate to the back and plopped that on my cubed background using Crafty Foam Tape. 
The background piece was cut from the Wavy Pierced Rectangle Die.  I used several Distress Oxide inks to match the inside of the card.  The sentiment is part of the Simple Sentiments set.  (I told you this is my "go to" set! LOL!) 

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on black paper and embossed in white.  I used the Quick Strips Die set to cut it out.  It was layered over front of frame. I tied hot pink tulle around the front of the card.  
There is a lot going on with this card, it was definitely going down a rabbit hole for awhile, but I think at the end it does shout, Happy! (Or maybe I am just fooling myself!) ;)
On a happy note, I did get a 40 min. call from my son yesterday.  It was so great hearing his voice.  He is half way done with boot camp.  :)  
Be sure to check out Whimsy Stamp's newest releases! I promise the next card will be something besides cubes!

Whimsy Stamp's Newest Release!

Good morning friends!
Today is Whimsy Stamps newest release! I absolutely love this new die called Cubed!  I used it with watercolor paper and went a little crazy with my Karin Brushmarkers.  I added lots of splatter to jazz it up a bit.  I adhered it to a soft gray card stock with Crafty Foam Tape.  
I used a sentiment from the Simple Sentiment Strips stamp set.  I love this set and seem to be reaching for it a lot lately! I stamped it with Versamark on Navy blue paper and cut it into a strip.  I added a bit of white string as not to overwhelm the colorful background.  A few clear sequins and pearls were adhered as a finishing touch.  
Be sure to pop on over to Whimsy Stamps to see the full release!
I'll be back tomorrow with another card!
Have a great day!

Make a Wish

Good morning!
Can I just say that if I never see another snowflake that it would be too soon?
We seriously have 14 inches of snow here and there is nowhere to even put the piles anymore!
But I digress...
I have a card that brings fond memories of warmer temps and sunshine.
I used Whimsy Stamp's new Build-a-Fairy Garden Die.  I did a bit of inking and coloring of these sweet fairies with Copic markers. I used the Slimline Scenic Countryside Die and the Birthday Scallops Die to create the frames. 
I used the Up in the Clouds Die set to add some clouds and the sun. The sentiments are part of the Simple Sentiments stamp set.  (A must have in my opinion!)
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

A Little Valentine Treat!

Hello friends!
I have a fun Valentine project to share with you today using some fun new Whimsy products!
I used the new Marshmallow Wishes Stamp set and the Slimline Scalloped Edge Pocket Die.  The images were colored with Copics.  
I used the pocket die with the 6 x 6 Baby Bear Paper Pack.  I punched a hole in the pocket front, where the image is, for the ribbon to go through.  I popped that piece up using the Shaker Maker Foam Tape
I added little hearts from the Sprinkletz Candy Hearts collection. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Be sure to pop by Whimsy Stamps to see the new release!
Have a great Friday!

Whimsy's New Release!!

It's February 10th Y'all! You know what that means don't you?  Whimsy Stamp's new release!! I adore this new set, Polka Dot Pals Nour.  I did a bit of masking to create my scene and to create my cloudy sky in the background.  I used Karin Brushmarkers to water color the image.  I stamped the sentiment vertically in Versafine Black ink.  
I wanted to keep the focus on the main image, but couldn't resist adding a bit of twine with these boots I had in my stash.  Which by the way, have probably been in my stash for 20 years! Seriously folks! 
I added a few Sparkletz Patriotic stars to the background and called this card finished. 

Be sure to head on over to Whimsy to check out the full release!
You are going to fall head over heels for all of it!
