Pumpkin Spice Anyone?

I don't want to start a war or anything, but are you a pumpkin spice fanatic? Are you the person who the first day it comes out, you are in the drive-thru giddy with excitement?  ;)  Well, that's me....LOL.  I love summer, don't get me wrong, but fall is my jam.  Something about it gets me.  The cooler weather, fall clothes, comfort foods.........
I created these little fall inspired treat boxes from Whimsy's Gnome So Thankful stamp set.  The image was stamped in Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink on water color paper.  I used a no line water coloring technique with my Karin Brush Markers. Once it was dry I splattered it with white gouache. 
I cut out the image using the Pierced and Stitched Circles Die set.  The treat box was from the Mini Treat Box Die.  I adhered the circular image using Crafty Foam Tape.  I added the sentiment, a pearl, twine and a couple of leaves from the Build-a-Pumpkin Patch Die set. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Lost in Space!

Hello there!
I am a bit behind in posting this...but this new die set from Whimsy Stamps is so much fun! It is called UFO, appropriately named! LOL. I chose a "nonalien" color scheme and opted for fun bright colors to coordinate with the Taffy Papers.  I also used the New Revealers 2 Die set and the Slimline Taffy paper. 
I felt I needed a sentiment so I spelled out hello using the Cutie ABC die set.  I used a bit of vellum under the space ship and added pearls. That's okay right? Pearls on a spaceship? ;)  For a final touch I added a few teeny gold stars and clear gems

Be sure to stop by Whimsy Stamps for all of the new products! 

My photo of the day comes from my very own backyard. :)  I don't know the name of this flower, but thought they were too pretty to pass up.

Aliens Anyone?

Hello friends! Today is Whimsy Stamps August release! I love how fresh and innovative Whimsy is! Look at these cute aliens!  Can aliens be this cute? ;)  This set is called, Space Minions. I added glossy accents to their eyes and set them aside to dry.  I used the  Celestial Zodiac Background on black paper and embossed it in white.  I wanted to ground these little minions, so I used the frames from the Slimline Observation Die. 
Behind the main image I wanted to add interest to the white card stock, it seemed to start otherwise, so I used the Infinity Stencil. I tied some string in the middle and popped up the panel using Crafty Foam Tape.   I wanted to add a few additional stars, so I used my leftover stars from the Slimline Stars Background Die.  I keep my extras in a little coffee cup.  :) I added Stickles to each one and popped them on my card for a bit of extra sparkle.  
You absolutely have to head over to Whimsy Stamps! This release is so fun!
Thank you for stopping by today!
