When Life Gives You Lemons......

Happy Thursday friends!
Just a quick post sharing a sentiment that I think we have all felt at least a few times this past year. ;)
The stamp set is Whimsy's  Ant You Sweet set. It was colored with Copics.  I paired it with the cute Bandana paper.
Short and sweet today friends! :)

Summer Vibes!

Good morning!
I am in my second week of summer school and really enjoying only having 10 kids! ;)
I have a new card today using the absolutely adorable new Whimsy set called, Gnomes at the Beach.  She was colored with Copics and fussy cut.  For the background I used some Distress inks and the new Slimline Cornered Rectangle dies. For the corner embellishment I used an old seagull button and clip.  (I've been going old school lately with the buttons!) :)
For the sentiment I used the new Cutie ABC Die set.  I used Distress inks, coated each letter with glossy accents and "dipped" them in sand.  Once dry, they were adhered to the card.  I added a scattering of teeny hearts from the Sparkletz collection. 
Be sure to check out Whimsy's June release! So much summer fun!
Have a great day!

Life's a Beach!

Good morning!
Today is June 10th, which means it is release time for Whimsy Stamps
This adorable set is called, Gnomes at the Beach. Who doesn't like a cute gnome in a bathing suit drinking a Mai Tai? ;) 
This cutie was colored using Copic Markers.  For the background I used distress inks and the new Scribbles Slimline background die. 
I framed the image using a rectangle die and popping it up with Crafty Foam Tape.  As it seems that the tiny hearts have become a staple in my cards lately, I figured why fix what ain't broken? ;)
Be sure to head on over to the Whimsy Store to see the full release! 
Have a great day!

Spring has Sprung!

Howdy y'all!  ;)
Sorry had to get into character for my card today! LOL! 
I used the new Slimline Chicken Coop die set! from Whimsy Stamps. There are such fun pieces to the set and amazing little details, like the door handles and hinges.  I added some detail to the hay using Copic markers.  
I also used the new 6 x 6 Bandana paper to give a pop of blue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Spring Birds on a die cut circle.   I added a few teeny tiny hearts from the Sprinkletz collection. 
I have been making cards and scrapbooks since 1994 and I think this button might be that old! LOL! I knew I would use it some day! ;)

Be sure to check out Whimsy's full release for June! 
Have a great day!

Big Hogs!

Hello and happy Saturday to you!
Yesterday was my last day of school! I can't believe we made it through this crazy year! ;)
My card uses the new Piggies Background stamp from Whimsy. I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it in white.  I used my Karin Brushmarkers to give it color. I cut the panel into two pieces.  I used the Big Hugs Word Die set.  I replaced the u with an o to have a play on words! 
The little flowers were from the Slimline Meadow Die set.  They add a sweet touch to an otherwise silly card.  :)
Please be sure to check out Whimsy's June release! So much fun over there!
Have a great weekend!

Whimsy's June Release!

Today is June 1st! That means only 6 more days of school and Whimsy Stamp's June release! I used this fun set called Hee Haw! I colored this crazy cow with Copics and cut it out with the coordinating die.  I stamped the sentiment on red card stock with Versamark ink and embossed it in white.  For the background I used the Cow Print background stamp.  It was also stamped with Versamark, but embossed in black.  
I layered everything with Crafty Foam tape, added glossy accents to his eyes, and tied a sheer ribbon around the card. 

Be sure to head on over to Whimsy to see the full release!
Have a great week!

Good morning and happy Sunday to you!
I have a fun shaker card using some older products from Whimsy Stamps.  I used the Bee Hive Rubber Cling Stamp and colored it with Copics. The sentiment and bee were part of the Bee-utiful Bees set. 
For the background I used the Honeycomb stencil, then cut the center out using the Hexagon die.  I glued acetate behind it.  I filled the center with sequins from my stash and clear droplets.  It was adhered to the card with Crafty Foam tape for added dimension.  String was tied to the top for a final touch.  

Be sure to check back tomorrow for Whimsy's June release!
And did I mention that Cortney got to come home for the WHOLE weekend? It has been so lovely having her home! I can't stop hugging her!
