New Heights!

Good morning! (Or afternoon or evening!)
I have another giraffe card to share with you using  Whimsy Stamp's Giraffe Smiles set.  I colored this cutie with Copic markers and used the coordinating die.  I added Stickles to her spots.
I used the leaves from the Giraffe Smiles set and flowers from the Polka Dot Pals Fern set.  I used the stitched rectangles die to create a frame for my images.  I assembled everything and used Crafty Foam Tape for added depth. I finished the card with Star Sparkletz and gems from the Ocean Waves collection. 

Have a great day!

Miso Happy!

Have you ever had one of those days where you didn't go anywhere and you changed one pair of pajamas for a clean pair of pajamas?
Yep, that was my day yesterday. 
I crafted, cooked dinner, and never did my hair, or put on makeup.
Heaven. :)
I loved creating with this Valentine Puns set from Whimsy Stamps. 
I used Karin Brushmarkers for the images. (Colors listed below.) Once image was dry I added some shadows with a black colored pencil and cut out the image using the Pierced and Stitched Circles die.  
To create an interesting edge to the polka dot paper (from the Giraffe  6x6  paper pack) I used one of the Kinetic Straight Waves Die.
I added twine and a few Love Hearts Sparkletz to finish off the card. 
Well back to work for me today! :)
Thank you for stopping by!

No Line Water Coloring

Hello friends!
Hope you had a great week! 
I have a new card today using Whimsy Stamp's    Polka Dot Pals Fern set.  This little gal is so sweet and she was so much fun to water color. I have been on a Karin Brushmarker kick lately and loving the no line look.
She looks like a storybook character. :)
Once all of the water coloring was dry, I added a few dark shadows and details to her hair with colored pencils.  I added white highlights with acrylic paint.  I used Glossy Accents for her glasses. 
I kept the card pretty simple because I wanted the focus to be on her.  So I stamped the sentiment directly on the image with black ink. I love the font of this sentiment!
I added a few Love Hearts Sparkletz. For the background, I used the Speckled Heart Stencil and adhered the image on top using Crafty Foam Tape. 
Thank you for stopping by today! Your visits are always appreciated!

New Release from Whimsy Stamps!

Good morning friends!
Can you tell I am back at work?
No posts for nearly a week?
This week has kicked my butt! ;)
I am sharing Whimsy Stamp's new release called, Giraffe Smiles.  It is the sweetest set!
I used a No Line ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used the coordinating dies to cut these two out. I decided I wanted this sweet pair to be nestled in flowers and leaves. So I die cut the leaves from the Giraffe Smiles Die set and a flower from the Peony Flower Die set.
I colored the leaves and flower using Copic markers.  For my background I used the new  Giraffe Stencil. I opted for pink because I LOVE pink! I layered everything and added a silk ribbon tied with twine.  For a finishing touch I added a few Love Hearts Sparkletz and a few gems from the  Snow Crystals Sparkletz collection. 

I so appreciate you taking the time to stop by today!
Have a wonderful weekend!
