Snort Out Loud!

I hope you are having a fantastic week! I feel like I've been catching up on all of my "doctoring" for my kids, myself, and the dogs.  ;)
I've had a bit of time to play in my craft room though and used Whimsy's new stamp set called, Pig Puns 2 for my card.  I stamped the image in black Memento ink and colored it using Copics.  I added Stickles to his cape.  Using my Mini Misti I lined up the sentiment where I wanted it. 
I used the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle dies to create multiple layers.  On the smallest rectangle I left it in place and sponged Spun Sugar Distress ink around the edges.  I like the soft pink and I think it helps the image to pop a bit.  

I used the Smile Large Word die on white card stock.  I cut 5 of them and stacked them up to create a bit of dimension.  I added glossy accents to the top. I used Sparkletz Crystal Stars as a fun accent. The layers were adhered to this cute polka dot paper from the 6 x 6 Pretty Pastel's paper pack. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Watermelon Box!

Happy weekend to you!
I don't normally post on the weekends, but my hubby is doing some work and I had a bit of time to post.  I have been having so much fun using the new Whimsy Stamp's Ants at a Picnic set. 
I was browsing my Silhouette files and came across this watermelon box.  I knew I wanted to incorporate this darling set with the box. 
I love how this little guy is munching on the water melon and peeking over the top!
I colored the images with Copics, added a flower, leaves, and silk ribbon. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on black card stock and embossed in white. 
I added Glamour Dust to the inside portion of the water melon, glossy accents to the seeds, and white gel pen highlights.

Gnome Matter What!

Hello my friends! Happy Friday!
I have been crafting like a mad woman!
It's been awhile since my mojo has been in full swing!
I used Whimsy Stamp's Gnome Matter What clear stamp set for my project today.
The box was cut using my Silhouette.  While it was still flat, I stamped the image with Versafine ink.  (It is water proof and great for water coloring!)
I colored the image with Zig Clean Color markers and added a few details using a white gel pen.  I added glossy accents to the snail's eyes. I used the Quick Strips Die set for the sentiment.  The flower was cut from the Build-a-Garden set. 

I added a coordinating red ribbon and a couple of gem stones. 

Have a great weekend!!

School's out for summer!
I am blessed to have a profession that allows me to recharge over the summer!
This gives me a bit of time to create in my favorite room in the house. If you would like to see my craft room, you can click HERE to see my past post. :)
I am sharing Whimsy's newest release, Pig Puns 2.
The images are so whimsical and fun! I colored the image with Copic markers and added details with a white gel pen.  I used the Quick Strips Die to cut out the sentiments. To add a bit of interest, I used the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies and the Kinetic Straight Waves Die for the bottom of the card. 
I've had these donut pieces in my stash forever and was so excited to be able to finally use them on a card! I tied the silk ribbon right through the center!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Your visits make my day!

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Good morning! I am excited for a couple of reasons...first, school is out tomorrow, and secondly, I get to play with Whimsy Stamps newest releases! 
I got to use this cute stamp from the Oink Clear set. 
I colored this adorable pig using Copic markers and added a few white spots with a white gel pen. I fussy cut him out and added glossy accents to his eyes. 
I wanted to add a few flowers, so I added some from the Beaucoup Bouquet stamp set. They were also colored with Copic markers and cut out.  The background was done with Tim Holtz Distress inks and spritzed with a bit of water.  The stamped sentiment came from the Sleepy Sloth set. I cut it out using the Quick Strips Die set.
I used Crafty Foam tape to layer the pieces on the 6 x 6 Pretty Pastel paper.   I added a few Pretty Pink Posh jewels to finish it off.  
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

CAS Penguin

Happy Memorial weekend to you!
I have Cortney home this weekend and Kyle is off of work, so it is going to be a weekend full of family.💓💗
It's just the way I like it. 

Today I have a card showcasing Whimsy Stamps' Penguin Slides stamp set.  I stamped this cutie with black Memento ink and used Prisma colored pencils.  I added hightlights with a white gel pen.  
I used the Kinetic Straight Waves die set to created the border at the bottom.  I added patterned paper underneath to make the image pop a bit.  
I tied yellow twine and adhered a puffy heart sticker for a final touch. 

I am off to enjoy the sunshine (which has almost non existent this past month) and spend some time with the kids!
Have a great day!
