Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello friends!
What a week it has been! I hope all of you living in the Southeast made it safely through Hurricane Ian!
My son's Naval graduation was canceled and this Mom was pretty sad about it. But in the whole scheme of things, we were safe, he was safe, and we celebrated with him over Zoom. :)
Our Whimsy Stamp's family live in Florida and fortunately they made it through safely with minimal damage.  It will be awhile before life gets back to some normalcy there. 
Today's Whimsy Stamp's release is packed with some awesome new products!  I used the new Autumn Layered Leaves stamp set.  I embossed them in gold on water color paper. I went with bold pinks, purples, oranges, and reds.  I fussy cut them out. The focal point uses the Autumn Word and Shadow Die.  The background was water colored in oranges and yellows.  The scripty word was die cut using gold glittery paper. 

The background was done using water color paper (see the trend? LOL) and the Mitered Frames set.  I popped the inner most frame and sentiment up using Crafty Foam Tape.  The leaves were tucked underneath and glued in place. I added a bit of gold cording.  For a final touch I used the Confetti Mix-Falling Leaves in pink.  
Thank you for stopping by today!

Halloween Box Peeking Ghost

Good morning!
I have a fun Halloween box to share today using Whimsy Stamp's new Peeking Ghosts die set.  I had water colored paper in shades of gray and silver when I cut him out.  I added a bit of stamping using the Slimline Spider Webs stamp.  It was stamped in a light gray to give him texture. I gave this guy a banner from the Slimline Bunting Borders Die set. The bats from the Bat Reveals Die set are holding the banner.  I used the Hexagon Treat Box to place my ghost on.  For a finishing touch I added a few stars, gems, and teeny bats.
Check out the rest of Whimsy Stamp's new release!
Have a great day!

Happy hump day!
I hope you are loving Whimsy's new release this month! 
I have another card to share today using the new Autumn Ghosts set. I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it in black for a shiny finish.  The background was done using hot pink paper,the Slimline Spider Webs Background stamp, and black embossing powder.
  I added more ghosts using the Boo Die Set. And if that wasn't enough, I added a couple of glittery silver spider webs from the Spiders and Webs Die set.  It was fun changing up the traditional Halloween colors! 
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello friends! 
Today is Whimsy Stamp's New Release Day!! Wooohooo!
I am in love with this new Dungeon Door Rubber stamp. I stamped it twice on water color paper.  I used Oxide inks to bring it to life.  The door itself was cut out.  I added Grit Paste to the door to age and "spookify" it a bit.  I popped it up with Crafty Foam tape. 
I added a few ghosts from the Boo Die set. I also added spiders and spiders webs from the Victorian Gothic Confetti Mix.   The sentiment is from the Hocus Pocus Kittens set.  
You are definitely going to want to pop over to Whimsy Stamps to see the full release! Halloween with a touch of Christmas stirred in!

I am so excited to share this adorable set from the Whimsy Stamp's/Simon Says Stamp, Stamptember release! This adorable pooch is part of the Pawsitively Awesome set.  He was colored in with Copics and glossy accents added to his sunglasses.  I used the Mitered Frames.  I had to use a piece of the black and white paper from the Mix n Match Neutrals 6 x 6 paper pack.  
I bit of pink twine and a little flower from my stash were added as a finishing touch.  Clean and Simple.  (At least for me! LOL) 
Be sure to head on over to Whimsy Stamps and Simon Says Stamps to see more awesome inspiration using this adorable set!

Get Well from Rats You're Sick!

Good morning!
A quick post today with this card using Whimsy Stamp's Rats You're Sick set.   I colored the image with Copics and fussy cut him out.  The background was kept simple.  Stamped the sentiment in the lower half and used the Pinwheels Stencil for the top half. I popped him up using Crafty Foam Tape and called it done.  CAS for the win!

Whimsy's New Release Day!

It is September 10th, which means 2 things!
First, it is my birthday! I am 29 again! ;)
And second, it is Whimsy Stamp's new release day!  I think I am more excited about the release day. HA! 
Who doesn't love a slimline card in the shape of a tombstone? And a shaker card to boot! The die set is called, Slimline Decrepit Grave.  I cut the pieces of water color paper and used Distress Oxide inks in Hickory Smoke and Black Soot.  I used Grit Paste all over and let it dry.  Once dry I swiped Distress oxide crayons (black) over the raised areas. I did the same thing with the skull and cross bones. 
I glued a piece of acetate to create a shaker card.  The background was also done on water color paper in shades of purples.  I filled my shaker with Victorian Halloween Confetti Mix.  I added a few spiders here and there to my flowers as well.  
I added some flowers and leaves to the tomb using the new Wild Weeds Die set.  The sentiment is part of the Hocus Pocus Kittens stamp set. 
Thank you friends for checking in today!

Back On Your Feet in no Time!

Good morning friends!
I have a get well card to share today using Whimsy Stamp's new, Rats You're Sick stamp set.   This is a type of card I need to make more of.  Maybe not a broken leg specifically, but get well cards in general.  This set offers lots of different ailments...LOL.  I colored this lil' mouse with Copics and fussy cut him out.  I stamped the sentiments in black and used the Brick Pattern Stencil for the background. 
I tied a bit of black string and felt I needed just a little somethin' somethin' to my card.  I added these small yellow clay circles from the Bokeh Bliss Blue Confetti Mix. I added smaller gold discs on top for added interest. 
Thank you for stopping by today!

It is September now, and even though it is still in the upper 80's here, my mind is already drifting towards fall. So many exciting changes in the next couple of months.  My son is graduating the Navy's Nuclear Power School at the end of September.  And then, he is getting married on October 28th.  Crazy how the last couple of years have changed our lives immensely.  
I am definitely in fall mode and cranking out some fun Halloween cards.  This witch is part of the So Witchy stamp set from Whimsy.  I colored her with Copics and fussy cut her out. 
The background was created using the Broken Web embossing folder on black paper.  I swiped it with a white ink to make it pop a bit.  I added a piece of black and white polka dot paper from the 6 x 6 Mix n Match Neutrals.  I literally hoard every scrap of this paper! Orange twine and a few orange enamel dots were added as a finishing touch. 
Wishing you a very happy holiday weekend!
