Rainbows and Glitter!

Hello everyone!
I have a new card to share with you using Whimsy Stamp's new, You're Too Kind Clear Stamp set. 
I wanted to make the sentiment the focal point of my card, so I decided that stamping in a rainbow order was the way to go! 
Once stamped I added a bit of glossy accents to the bottom half of  each word and sprinkled Glamour Dust glitter over it. 

For the background, I took the white paper and inked the background using the same colors I stamped the sentiment in. I just smeared it across the paper.  I got a bit crazy with the Glamour Dust glitter and maybe I should have a bit more self-control.....but I didn't. I "smeared" a bit of glossy accents along the edges and sprinkled more glitter to it.  I adhered the top panel with Crafty Foam Tape. I added a few coordinating rhinestones to finish it off. 

I haven't posted about Cortney in awhile. She is coming up on her 3 year staffing at Misericordia in a couple of weeks.  I can't believe how fast these 3 years flew by.  She is healthy. Happy. She lives an incredibly full life and surrounded by people who respect and love her.  I can't express the peace of mind I have. She does yoga, water therapy, Special Olympics, rides a bike, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, sings in the choir twice a week, communications club, and goes on numerous outings in the community. 
My heart is happy
my girl is 
happy. :)

Angel Celeste

Good morning!
Hope you all had a great weekend! (And Monday!)
I have a new card to share today using Whimsy Stamp's Angel Celeste stamp. She is so incredibly sweet isn't she? She was colored with Copic markers.  (Colors listed below)
I added glossy accents to her wings and the stars and sprinkled it with Glamour Dust Glitter. This stuff is my weakness!  I love how sparkly it is!
I added a sentiment using the new die called, Thanks Word and Shadow. I gave it a bit more dimension by adding glossy accents to the word. The second part of the sentiment is part of the, You're Too Kind stamp set.  It is such a versatile set!
There are many different phrases you can come up with, which I LOVE! 
Thank you for stopping by today! 
Here are the supplies I used to create my card!

You're Fintastic!

Nothing like a good pun to start your day! 
I have been a bit obsessive about Whimsy Stamps, Whale of a Time set!
I guess I've been on a pink kick lately too, as I had to make this Killer Whale pink. 
The image was colored with Copics (colors listed below) and fussy cut out.  I used the new die set called Wonky Window, to cut the silvery, glittery paper. I adhered part of it to white card stock.  I wanted a smaller card that could be attached to a gift or placed in a lunch box. ;)
I stamped the sentiment in black Memento ink on a die cut circle.  
I used some of the clear droplets from the Coral Coast Sparkletz collection and added a few drops of Nuvo Glitter Drops in Honey gold.  For a final touch, I tied a piece of white ribbon along the top.
Happy Wednesday to you!
Thank you for stopping!

Whale of a Time! New Release!

Hi there! And happy weekend to you!
I have another card using Whimsy Stamp's Whale of a Time!  For the background I used the new Speckled Heart Stencil and Nuvo Glimmer paste.   Once it was dry, I sponged a bit of Picked Raspberry Distress ink to the edges
I stamped the whale image and colored it with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut it out and added white speckles using a white gel pen. I used Crafty Foam tape to adhere it to the stenciled background.  I glued a few of the clear droplets and gold pieces around the whale from the Sparkletz-Coral Coast.

I stamped the sentiment in black and used the new Quick Strips Die set.  I love that it adds a little interest with the faux stitching. I tucked it under the whale, added a bit of gold cording and a teeny posy. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! :) 
Have a great weekend!
