Whimsy's April Release!

Good morning! Guess what today is? Whimsy Stamps April release! Today I am using this gorgeous flower from the new Sympathy So Deeply Sorry set.  Obviously, I went in an Easter direction with it, but honestly it has such wonderful sentiments for sympathy cards. I colored the image with my Karin Brushmarkers.  I fussy cut the image and set it aside.  
I used the Nested Hexagon die set and the Giraffe Stencil with orange ink to give the background some interest. 
I loved the striped paper in the new Fabulous Florals 6 x 6  pack.  I stamped the sentiment using the Easter Memories Stamp set.  I layered everything with Crafty Foam Tape.  I added a bit of string and a few gems from the Lucky Charms, Sparkletz Collection. I tucked a doily in at the top and bottom to soften it a bit. 
Thank you so much for visiting! It really makes my day!

Good morning friends!
I have a card today that uses the Layered Dahlia set from Whimsy Stamps. I thought it was the perfect set to pair with the Karin Brushmarkers.  When the flowers were done, I splattered them with white acrylic paint. I fussy cut each flower and placed them to the side.  I cut two panels of card stock, one in yellow, and white, using the rounded rectangles die. While the die was in place, I used the Twinkle Stencil and pink ink, to give the background a bit of interest. I adhered the flowers using Crafty Foam Tape and scattering of teeny hearts from the Sprinkletz Sweetheart collection.
I added the word SWEET from the Sweet Word and Shadow Die set. 
I am working from home and doing e-learning with my students.  It's been a learning curve for sure, for teachers and parents.  But hopefully by the end of the week, we will be a rhythm.  
Stay safe and healthy friends!
