Pretty in Pink!

Chicago is in a deep freeze right now!  
It makes me extremely grateful for my warm home!
What's a girl to do when it is so bitter outside? It's a rhetorical question of course.....because we all know the answer is CRAFT! 
I used Whimsy Stamps, Wonky Die to create the background, as well as Tim Holtz's Distress Oxide to give it a pretty shade of pink. I splattered it with water and blotted it to give it a more interesting look.
I stamped the sentiment using the You're Too Kind stamp set and gold embossing powder
The flower was created using the Peony Flower Die.   I gave the leaves a bit of color with Tim Holtz's Cracked Pistachio Oxide ink.
To add sparkle to the flower and leaves I gave them a thin coating of glossy accents and sprinkled them with Glamour Dust glitter.  
I added a few fun details, like gold twine, and used the gold droplets for the center of the flower, from the Sparkletz Coral Coast collection.  I added a few additional gold droplets using  Nuvo's Glitter Drops in Honey Gold. 

I am so glad you stopped by today! If you are in the deep freeze with me, keep warm! And if you live in a warm climate, Enjoy!! :)

Whale of a Time!

Hi friends!
Michele here with a fun card sharing my card using Whimsy Stamp's Whale of a Time stamp set!
It is such a fun set to color and play with!
I colored the images with Copic markers and fussy cut each of the images.  I used Whimsy's new Wonky Window Die to create the background.   I paired it with glittery silver and blue paper.
I always seem to need thank you cards, so I incorporated the new Thanks Word and Shadow die.
I colored the top layer of the word with Copics to give it a gradient effect. I popped up the top two pieces on the back piece with Crafty Foam Tape.
I added a few touches of hot pink for contrast and used a few clear droplets from the Coral Coast Sparkletz collection. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
