National Teen Self Esteem Hop!

Hello friends!
This month is National Teen Self Esteem Awareness. 
Being a teen is rough, especially in these days.  
So a group of talented crafters have created cards to spread some joy and awareness! The hop is taking place on Instagram.  There are lots of prizes being given away from our sponsors,(Whimsy Stamps included), so be sure to check out Instagram! (The info will be listed below!) 
For my card, I used Whimsy Stamps Atlas Jar Clear Stamps.  I inked it with Speckled Egg ink from Time holtz.  For the inside of the jar I used the mushrooms and butterfly from the Polka Dot Pals Imogen set.  It was colored with Copics and white gel pen was used for the dots.  I fussy cut the jar. 
I added leaves and a flower using the Peony Flower Die.  I cut it with water color paper and used my Karin Brushmarkers to add color.  I folded and bent the petals and leaves, stacked them, and glued them to the edge of the jar.  I tucked silk ribbon and string between the flowers and leaves. For the background I used the 6 x 6 paper from the Eggstra Bunnies collection.  To "ground" the jar I did add a white rounded rectangle with white paper. For a finishing touch, I added a doily, and a few Sparkletz stars. 

The information for the Instagram Hop are below.  :)

Whimsy Stamp's May Release!

Hello friends!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's May release!  I know I say this every month, but every product is cuter than the next! Just look at this group of gnomes! Seriously!  It is part of the Gnome Party Row set!  I colored the gnomes with Copics and decided to color the background in black for a night sky.  I added stars with a white gel pen and few hearts from the Sweetheart Sprinkletz. 
I added a pop of turquoise using the Slimline Zig Zag Edger die. Everything was adhered using Crafty Foam tape for a bit of dimension.  

Be sure to pop by the Whimsy Store to see the full release!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
