Embracing Vintage

Hello friends!
I have fallen back in love with vintage once again.  I used Whimsy Stamp's Gerbera Daisies stamp and colored it with Copic Markers.  I splattered it with a bit of white and black acrylic paint.  I added some silk ribbon and twine directly to the flowers.    
I don't know if you can see the background well, but I used the Brick Pattern Stencil in a light blue. I also stamped the Vintage Script Background stamp in random places. I rubbed a bit of Tim Holtz's Foundry Wax to the edges and heat set them. 
Thank you for stopping by for a visit! :)

Same Die, Different Look

Good morning friends! 

I have another card using the Coneflower Frame Die from Whimsy Stamps.  Last card was soft and vintage.  This card I decided to go bold.  The card uses several colors of card stock.  I added some details with Copic Markers.  When the card was pieced together, I gave it a splatter of white acrylic paint.  

I decided to add a sentiment to this card.  It is from the Doggie Naughty set.    I added some bright ribbon with a vintage button.  Stickles were added to the flowers for a bit of sparkle. 
Thank you for stopping by today!

Whimsy Stamps New Release

It's that time of the month again for Whimsy Stamp's new release. I know I say this every release, but this one is absolutely awesome! This card was created using the new Coneflower Frame Die. I cut it from water color paper and used my Zig Clean Color Water Color Markers.  The frame was given a coating of crackle paste and rubbed with brown ink.  A bit of sewing machine stitching and some tulle finished the card off.  
Pop on by the Whimsy Stamp's store to see the full release!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy weekend to you! 
I hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! I am not Irish, but I love joining in on the festivities. :)
If I'd had my act together, I would have posted this Friday....but.... I didn't. But better late than never I suppose!
This slimline card uses Whimsy Stamp's Shenanigans Word Die and Shadow.  Clovers from the Shenanigans Lassie Die set.   The background was done with Texture paste, gold embossing powder and the Slimline Shamrocks background die.  I love how puffed up it stayed!  A bit of string and few pearls finish the card off.  

Have a wonderful day!
Thank you for stopping!

Invaded by Bees!

Have you seen this new stamp set by Whimsy Stamps?  It is called Bizzy Bees! AND it comes with coordinating dies. I had to color all of them, but left two out for a later card.  I used the Slimline Honeycomb die for the background.  
Behind the blue you will see a subtle honeycomb pattern.  I used the Honeycomb Drips Stencil to create some interest to the background.  Some tulle, ribbon, and a scattering of clear sequins finished the card.  
BEE sure to stop over at Whimsy Stamps! (Sorry, couldn't help myself! LOL)

Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello friends!
Crazy week this week and I am a day late posting!
Whimsy had their brand new release and this Fox Family Stamp set is so sweet! I colored the image with Copics. I added some vintage lace and a leaf from the Poppy Flower Die set.  I added some dimension with Copic markers. I wanted to bring out the warm tones of the image, so I added an orangey brown card stock embossed with Diagonal Dots. 
A couple of posies, a bit of twine, and a few clear sequins finishes off the card. 
Thank you for stopping by!
Be sure to pay Whimsy Stamps a visit!

Bunny Shaker Card!

Hello friends!
I am home today on an "E-Learning" day due to the impending snow storm we are supposed to get. ;) It is nice staying in my PJ's and not driving into work. 
I had this vision for my card today of my bunny diving into an ice cream, carrot, sundae! I am not sure it came out exactly the way I thought it would, but I think I still like it. I used Whimsy Stamp's Bunny Butt die.  I added glossy accents and pink flock. I created a shaker ice cream soda using the Frosty Glass Die set.  The inside of the shaker uses the sentiment from the Easter Sentiments stamp set.  The Confetti mix I used is retired, but I linked one similar down below. 
I really wanted a carrot as part of the ice cream, so I created my own from card stock.  I cut the top with scissors and added twine. 
So what do you think? Too much? Too busy?
Have a great day my friends!!
