Whimsy's Release Day!

Happy Saturday!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's release day!
I am excited to share this adorable new set called, Happy Hamsters. It seems like most families, at some point, allow their kids to have one right? We had them for awhile.  Had all the toys, the little "play pen" and such.  But we also know they are all little escape artists! You know where I am going with this story.....
Anyway, I stamped each image with a no line coloring ink and colored them with Copics.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out each image. (YAY! for coordinating dies!!)
For the background I used water color paper, a diamond stencil and Tim Holtz inks. I used the new  Slimline Bunting Borders die to make it look more festive. I adhered everything to the water colored panel. I stamped the sentiment on black card stock with Versamark ink and embossed it in white.  I popped up the sentiment and some of the balloons with Crafty Foam Tape.  I added tiny hearts from the Sweetheart Sprinkletz collection.  I had some of these round confetti pieces from my stash as well as the pearls. 
Be sure to pop on over to the Whimsy store to see ALL of their brand new releases! Each one is cuter than the next!
Have a great weekend friends!

Super Puppy Power!

Howdy friends!
I have a fun card to share today using Whimsy Stamp's Super Dogs set. I colored this cutie with Copic markers and colored the background with Copics as well.  I used the Comic Half-Tone Stencil and alcohol ink to create a subtle texture to the background. 
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed it in white.  I added some gold star stickers from my stash. I added gold cording at the top as a finishing touch. 

Be sure to check back tomorrow for Whimsy's new product release! You are going to love all the new stuff!! :)

Water Colors on Black Paper!

Hello friends!
Just a quick post today to share with you!
I had been wanting to use my new Karin Brushmarker Metallics and decided they would look super cool on black paper.  This first card was my first attempt.  Not my favorite, as my colors got a bit muddled. I used Whimsy Stamp's Beaucoup Bouquet with Versamark Ink. I colored everything using Karin DecoBrush Metallic Set.
I thought my second attempt was a bit better.  I added a bit more water to make the colors more transparent. When my card was finished I stamped the sentiment from the Bold Sentiment's set in Versamark and embossed it in white. 
Have a great day!
