Vintage Fall

Good morning!
I have a new fall card using Whimsy Stamp's September releases! I used their awesome new die set called, Build-a-Pumpkin Patch.   I used my Zig Clean Color markers to bring the die cuts to life.  Once everything was dry, I splattered white acrylic paint.  
I used the new Slimline Marquee die with kraft card stock.  I love the wonky windows of this die! I backed each window with vintage music paper.  I adhered a piece of a paper doily to each window.  I adhered the pumpkins with Crafty Foam tape for added dimension.  
I added twine and pearls to each pumpkin/leaves cluster.  The thanks is from the Thanks Word and Shadow Die.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!

New Release From Whimsy Stamps!

Good morning! Today is my 48th birthday! My husband took me away this past weekend to downtown Chicago.  We kayaked on the Chicago River, walked our beautiful city, had pizza, and went to a Comedy Club.  I am truly blessed to be married to a man for 26 years and still treat me like we are still dating.  :)

My card today uses Whimsy's new die set, Build-a-Pumpkin Patch.  I die cut everything using water color paper.  I colored it using Zig Clean Color Markers. 
After everything was dry, I splattered white acrylic paint over everything. I assembled the leaves and twine at the stem. 
The sentiment was stamped from an old sentiment stamp I had in my stash.  I cut the ends to look like a banner and tucked it under the leaves.  
Have a wonderful day today! Thank you for stopping my little corner!

Halloween-Whimsy Stamp's September Release!

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
I am excited to share Whimsy Stamp's new September release, Candle Creeps! I love the different candles that come in this set. They are all interchangeable on the candelabra, which is so much fun! I stamped the image with black Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers. 
I sponged the background with Tim Holtz Distress ink and splattered a bit of water.  The "table" that the candelabra sits on was done with Copics. I added a few sequins and squeezed Stickles in the centers of the sequins, flames, and spider web.  I had a spider sequin in my stash that was perfect to hang off the candle. A bit of black twine finished the card off. :)I used Crafty Foam tape in between the layers. 
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Color My World!

Hello friends!
I have a quick post to share with you today using my new favorite set by Whimsy Stamps, Artist Toolkit.  I stamped the brushes, colored them in with Copics, added glossy accents to the handles and Stickles to the bristles.  I added a rainbow using the new die, Array of Rainbows.  
I wanted to add a bit of interest to the background so I stamped the new Marble Background stamp in Memento black. I adhered the layers with Crafty Foam tape and added a few rhinestones from my stash. I also added Stickles to the clouds for additional sparkle. 
Have a great day!

Listen to Your Art!

Hello friends!
Hope you had a great week! Today I have a card using my favorite new set from Whimsy Stamps, Artist Toolkit! I stamped the images in a light grey ink and water colored them.  I fussy cut them out and added glossy accents to the paint portion. 
I used the new Array of Rainbows die set.  I cut the rainbow and stars out of water colored paper and water colored it.  I wanted to add a bit of interest to the background so I stamped the new Marble Background stamp in light grey. I stamped the sentiment in black Memento ink and adhered the rainbow, paint, and stars.  I added a few star Sparkletz too. :)
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Mermaid Escape

Good morning friends! I am sharing another Mermaid Escape card from Whimsy Stamp's August release.  I colored the individual pieces with Copic markers and used the coordinating die cuts. For the background I used Tim Holtz inks and spritzed it with a bit of water.  I wanted to add bubbles, so I used the background stamp with Versamark and embossed it in white. 
I layered the pieces over the background with Crafty Foam Tape.  I added some pink tulle and Stickles to the mermaid. 

I am off to a Google doc training for school today.  My first official day is tomorrow.  Wish me luck as I enter a brand new school year!

Mermaid Dreams...

Good morning friends! I start school in just a few days and trying to get everything I need done accomplished. My room is set up and ready to go.  My "doctoring" is complete for the summer, and I've had a few moments here and there to create. 
I created this card using Whimsy Stamp's Mermaid Escape.  I did a no line coloring by stamping the image on water color paper and Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I used Zig Clean Color Markers to bring the image to life
I wanted to jazz up the background a bit, so I used the Curly Q's background stamp.  I softened the stamping by doing a bit of ink blending around the edges. I popped up the image using Crafty Foam tape. I used a white gel pen to add dots to the sand, tied a glittery ribbon around the top, and adhered a few clear droplets and stars from the Sparkletz collection.  
Thanks for popping by today!
