Celebrate! Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello my crafty friends!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's April 1st release! It is also the day my son graduates from Power School! Proud Navy mom here!
I used the new Mini Slim Tri Fold Peekaboo die.  I saved the other parts for another project that I will share later.  I used the circles and applied Distress Oxide inks to the two smaller circles. 
The center circle is from the new Medalions Modern Hot Foil Plate.  And since I couldn't leave well enough alone I also used the Floral Hot Plate on pink paper with gold foil.  I used it as a background to the circles.  
I added pearls and some gold confetti from the St. Patrick's Day Confetti Mix.  I adhered everything on top of some super sparkly gold paper.  It feels so girly and glitzy!
Thank you for stopping by today!
Be sure to stop by Whimsy Stamps to see the full release!
It never disappoints!

Enjoy Life

Hope you are doing well today! I have a slimline shaker card using Whimsy Stamp's new Slim Notched Hot Foil Plates in Rose Gold.  I layered 3 plates for a more dramatic look.  I cut out the frame using the coordinating Notched Die set. Clear acetate was adhered behind frames and popped up with Crafty Foam Tape.    The sentiment is from Good Luck Flowers and was stamped directly on the acetate with Versamark.  It was then embossed in white.  
I wanted to add some flowers and leaves in the corners, so I used the Jungle Frames for the leaves and Grass Frames for the flowers.  I always have distressed water colored backgrounds ready to die cut.  I keep my water colored backgrounds in a basket for when I need them.  The flowers and leaves were layered, twine, and a gold doily were added. The heart is from the Confetti Mix-Love You Beary Much  and was originally white.  I used a Copic Marker to color it so it would match perfectly. The shaker elements is from the Confetti Mix-St. Patrick's Day.  (And yes, I did pick out all of the Shamrocks! LOL)
Thank you for stopping today!
Have a wonderful day!!

Easter Egg

Hello friends!
I am heading out to South Carolina to see my son graduate from Power School in the Navy.
I am excited to see an actual graduation.  Since CoVid, we have missed his college graduation, Boot Camp graduation, and A School graduation. So I have my tissues ready for me to be crying like a baby. 
Today's card uses this adorable set, Hoppy Easter Bunny, from Whimsy Stamps. I used my Zig Clean Color markers and used a no line coloring technique.  Once he was colored, I used the Nested Pierced Egg Die set.
I added an additional "frame" using my black fine tipped pen. Ribbon, posies, and a couple of leaves from the Jungle Frame set were added.  The teeny heart is from the Love You Beary Much Confetti Mix.
Have a great week!
Thank you for stopping by today!!

Miss You!

Good morning and happy Sunday to you!
I have a grungy, vintage inspired card to share today using the Whimsy Stamp's new Butterflies Hot Foil plates!  I had never foiled before so when I got these I went a little crazy creating all kinds of butterflies using all kinds of different foils. They were cut out using the coordinating dies.  For this card I used gold foil and used Distress inks in Kitch Flamingo, Dusty Concord, and Ripe Persimmon,  I added flowers and pearls to the centers using the Grass Frames Die Set. 
The background used vintage paper and the Rain Stencil with texture paste. I layered a frame from the Jungle Frames Die set. The pale gray polka dot paper is from the Mix n Match Neutrals paper pack.  Machine stitching was added.  I felt like it needed a sentiments, so I added a large YOU from the You are Word Die set. I added a few purple confetti pieces from the Fabulous Florals Confetti collection. 

Lots of layers and distressing today, sometimes you just gotta play! :)
Thank you for stopping by today!
