Happy St. Paddy's Day....Again!

I know St. Paddy's Day was 6 days ago....but somehow I forgot to share this card.  It was too cute not to share.  ;)  I used Whimsy Stamp's St. Paddy Shenanigans stamp set.  I colored him with Copics and fussy cut him out. I also took a piece of the Rainbow Magic paper and folded it accordion style to make a colorful pinwheel behind my image. I felt like he needed to be sitting on something, so I added a rainbow using the Array of Rainbows Die Set.  The card base was cut using the Pierced and Stitched Circles Dies. 
I also added a few white gel pen highlights, glossy accents to the beer mug, and a little splattering on the rainbow.  
Thank you for stopping by today!

Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
Mine started out driving to go get Cortney and ending up with a flat tire!
Fortunately, we were not hurt, pulled over to a safe location, and a friend of ours was able to come and grab the tire and fix it for us.  Thank goodness for good friends!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's new release, and I love this new set called, Sew You.  I went back to my vintage roots with lots of distressing and layering.  :) I colored the image using Zig Clean Color Markers.  I did add few details with a black colored pencil to emphasize the wood grain.  I also added a bit of gold to the sewing machine.  Once the image was dry I gave it a splattering of white acrylic paint. It was cut out using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Die. The brown checked paper is part of the Mix n Match Neutrals. 
I love adding little embellishments to make the card a little extra sweet.  I colored the heart and spool and cut them out.  I took thread and wound it around the spool until it was completely covered.  The teeny flowers and leaves are part of the Grass Frame's Die.  I layered all the pieces, adding a satin ribbon and string for a finishing touch.  
Be sure to stop by Whimsy Stamps to see the full release!
Have a wonderful day!
