Hello Friend!

Hello my friends!
I am sharing another new release from Whimsy called, Blessed Scarecrows.  I just had to ink up this crow with his hot cup of java! He was colored with Copics and framed with the new Thorny Frame Die.    The background was created using the Script Background stamp and my sewing machine. 
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

Whimsy's New Release!

Hello friends!

Today is Whimsy Stamp's new release day!  There is also an exciting new product to share with you today....especially if you love masking, but hate the fussy cutting! Introducing new No Fuss Masks!  I used the mask for Cat-O-Lanterns.  It is such a great product because not only did I not have fussy cut, the mask itself is fairly sticky.  So even those little bits don't come up as you are inking around it.  But the best part, is when you peel it off, it doesn't stick to your image and it leaves a very clean line.  No halos around the image! I used the Thorny Frame Die and 

I used the Brick Pattern Stencil to add a bit of interest to the background.  A silk ribbon was tied as a finishing touch. 
If you haven't been over to the Whimsy Store yet, be sure to hop over there! You will not be disappointed!

Simon Says Stamps & Whimsy Stamps Collaboration!

I am excited to share my card with a collaboration between Simon Says Stamps and Whimsy Stamps!
This set called Spooky and Mice.  This set cracks me up with its cuteness! ( I am a fan of "cute" not scary Halloween!) I created the background with strips of white cardstock.  Gave them a bit of depth with gray Distress Oxide ink.  I stamped the words and placed a couple of eyeballs for a bit of fun. The mummy mouse was colored with Copics and fussy cut.  (Although there are coordinating dies too!) A bit of ribbon was tied to finish the card off. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Whimsy's New Release!

Hello friends! Today is my birthday and it is also Whimsy's new release!  So many fun holiday items!
I used the Christmas Doggies stamp set to create a couple of gift tags....or ornaments. ;)  I colored these cuties with Copics. I used the frames from the Forever Cameo Frames set. I inked them up and added glitter to them. I love these little frames so much! A bit of ribbon, twine, and jingle bells were added for a festive touch. 
Be sure to pop by Whimsy and check out the full release! 
Have a great day!

Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello friends! Happy Labor Day weekend to you!
I can not believe it is September already....time sure does fly!
Whimsy Stamp's has released some awesome Halloween stamps and dies this month.  I used several new products on this vintage, shabby, Halloween card. I used the stamp set, Exquisite Beauty for the butterfly wings.  It is a rubber stamp and it stamps so crisp and clear! For the body I used the Forever Cameos die.   The frame is from the Forever Cameos Frames die.   I grunged it up a bit with Grit paste and Crackle paste.  I used a Tim Holtz Distress Crayon in black and brown to get the cracks and such.  The background of the card is old book paper.  I used the Brick Pattern Stencil over it using Crackle Paste.  Once it was dry I swiped black and brown Distress Crayon over. it.  
I added lace, a bit of mummy wrap around the frame, a small posy, and vintage stick pins for the antennae.  This was such a fun card to make. :)
If you haven't seen the full release yet, be sure to head on over to Whimsy Stamps!
Have a great weekend!

Trick or Treat!

A quick post today using Whimsy Stamp's new Batty Die Set.  I cut the bats out of paper I had previously water colored.  I added vintage buttons to the bats' bodies.  I added cob webs from the Nested Webs Die set. These were cut out of black paper and I added Grit paste to each and gave it a swipe of gold using a Distress Crayon.  The background was water colored using purple and black paints.  Grit paste and crackle paste were swiped around the edges.  I took a brown Distress Crayon to define the cracks a bit.  

The sentiment is part of the Cat-O-Lanterns set.  A bit of mummy cloth was tied at the top for a final touch. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
