Mushroom Mash Up Take 2!

Happy weekend!
Although it is a really wet soggy one! 
I will soon need to build an ark.....
I used Mushroom Mash Up from Whimsy Stamps before and knew I had to use it again.  To see my first card click HERE.  I used my Karin Brushmarkers and chose to use a dark background this time.  I love how it makes the bright colors pop even more. 
I paired it with some sparkly paper and used the  Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies.  A few sequins were adhered and this card was done.  

Have a wonderful weekend! 
Thank you for stopping by!

Finding Inspiration

Hi friends!  I hope you are having a great week!  I tend to struggle with masculine cards a bit, so I do what any good crafter does.....get inspiration from other card makers. ;)  Kristina Werner's blog is one I visit quite frequently.  I saw THIS card on her blog and thought it would be perfect for my dad and my father-in-law's Father's Day card.  I used Whimsy Stamp's Comic Speech Bubbles Die set.  I cut a bunch of them in various colors of card stock.  (A great way to use up those scraps you keep!) I layered them over black card stock.  Some were popped up with Crafty Foam Tape
I added Dad using the new Cutie ABC Die set.  I stamped a sentiment on the word bubble from the Simple Sentiment Strips Clear stamp set.  For a pop of color I added a teeny heart from the Sweetheart's Sprinkletz collection. 


Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Friday!

Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello friends! Happy Father's Day!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's June release and I have one word to describe it.....FUN! 
Look at these little fish and this lobster! It is part of the Fintastic set.  They were all colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I added Stickles to the fish and glossy accents to the lobster's eyes.  I used the new Scallop Six A2 die and used the Speckled Star Stencil and Tim Holtz ink in Speckled Egg. 
The balloons are part of the Gnome Party Row set.  They were each colored with Copics, cut out, given a coating of glossy accents, and white gel pen highlight.  I attached black string to the backs.  The sentiments are part of the Simple Sentiment Strips Clear set.   The fish and balloons were popped up using Crafty Foam Tape.  I added a few sequins and these little fish from the Fish Tank Sprinkletz collection. 
Be sure to head on over to Whimsy to see the full release! :)
Have a wonderful Sunday and Father's Day!
