Arrggh–Pirate Stamp Set

Happy Friday! I am back with another post. This time I am featuring something fun and whimsical that is definitely boy-themed! I have used the new  Arrgg Pirates Clear Stamp Set to create this fun card!

The first step was to create the background.  I took a piece of kraft cardstock and using some light brown ink, I stamped the wheel over the entire surface.  I started in the middle and made my way around so that I could get even spacing between each image.  I then stamped the images onto Neenah cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  I colored up the images using Polychromos pencils and I was so happy with how vibrant the colors were. I am definiety getting the hang on using them!

I die cut the Wonky Window Die 1 with some black cardstock and then lay it over my stamped kraft panel and lightly drew some pencil marks around the edges of the two bottom windows.  This way I could see exactly where my sentiment should be stamped with Versamark ink.  I embossed the sentiments using some Black Embossing Powder. Then I adhered every thing together.  The colored wheel was added over top one of the stamped wheels using a foam dot to raise it up.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Thursday and Happy Valentine’s day! We had a special time yesterday as we received 40 cm of snow which resulted in ALL the kids having a snow day! Yes, even the universities and colleges closed yesterday!  For some reason, snow day equals a baking day for me and I made a ton of their favorites! Last night I decorated the kitchen (as per my tradition) and laid out some lovely chocolate marshmallow treats for my guys!  I made each a little tag so that they would know whose pile was whose!  Here are the tags:

These were quickly made the other day.  I cut out the heart shapes with an old Whiff of Joy die and then used a paper crimper to crimp them up. I love the texture and dimension this gives without too much fuss! I used a very sweet MFT set and fussy cut each little birdie out after having colored them with copic markers.  The sentiments were heat embossed with white and then cut out to size!  I added an eyelet and some twine so that they can be hung.  They used hang them up in their rooms or on the door knobs to their rooms!


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Soft Kitty - Whimsy Stamps Adopt Don't Shop CAT Clear Stamp Set

Happy Monday! This is Jeanette and I am here to share the card that I made using the new Adopt Don't Shop CATS Clear Stamp Set that was released this month.  It is an awesome set and I LOVE all the sentiments that are included! I wanted to share this post last week, but this sweet set was out of stock so I waited until today when I knew that they has re-stocked!

I colored the sweet kitties as well as the surrounding background using Polychromos pencils.  I love how soft the coloration looks.  

I then cut out the image using the Peekaboo Window 3 Die.  I stamped the circles using the little paw stamps that are including in the stamp set.  I then die cut the Peekaboo Window 3 Die once again using some wood-grain, textured card stock. 

I adhered everything to a light, aqua colored card-base.  The wood-grain panel was adhered with some 3D Foam Adhesive Circles so that it would sit up off the focal image.  The sentiment which also is included in the set was stamped and then die cut using the Quick Strips Die Set.  This is such a handy set to have around as there are different sizes and shapes for all your sentiment needs! This was adhered with more adhesive circles.

Angel Neveah - Whimsy Stamps February Release

Happy Friday! January is done and dusted and it has felt like such a looooong month. I am glad we have moved into a new month that is a wee bit closer to Spring!
Here is a card I made that features quite a lot of the new February Release products from Whimsy Stamps.

For the card base, I created a top folding A2 sized card and then embossed the front with the new Spiral Roses Background Stamp.  I love how detailed this stamp is!  The sentiment was created by heat embossing and then die cutting.  I used last month’s You’re Too Kind Stamp Set and this month’s new Friend Word and Shadow Die Set.

I stamped the Angel Neveah Rubber Stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah cardstock and then colored her up with various Copic Markers.  I tried to keep all the color choices on the cool side as I knew that I wanted the background to be a dark,  starry, night sky. The background was colored with copic markers, cut out into a circle and then pops of white were added with a white gel pen. I went over the stars with Nuvo Honey Gold glitter drops.

Angel Celeste –Whimsy Stamps

Happy Wednesday!  I am so happy to be back here to share a card that I made using some of the new January released products paired up with a previously released product. I adore how beautifully all the older and newer products work together.

I stamped the Angel Celeste rubber stamp onto smooth, white card-stock and colored her up with Copic markers.  Once that was done, I trimmed it up to fit onto an A2 sized card.  I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment which is from the new You're too Kind clear stamp set . The final set was to  position the Star galaxy stencil over top and carefully sponged some of the stars.  I then heat embossed these as well. The used gold embossing ink and then I used clear embossing powder to heat set the ink.

Thank You Interactive Slider Card

Happy Thursday! How has January been treating you so far?  I am having such a hard time getting back into anything resembling a routine. I did however make this fun card.  It took me ages as I only had a wee bit of time every so often but now that it is done, I am so happy with how it turned out.

When I first saw that this Cute From Any Angle Rubber Stamp Set had a front AND back image of this adorable bunny, I tried to think of a clever way to incorporate both into one card.  I remembered some interactive cards that Jennifer McGuire had made and so I based this card on her cards from this blog post
You can see my card in action here:

I used the Basic Stitched Ovals Die Set to create the openings and the mats for the card.  To add some interest to both the front of the card as well as the inside, I used the Star Dangle Stencil and sponged some Soft Blossom ink over top.  The front sentiment is from the You’re Too Kind Clear Stamp Set and was heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and then die cut it  using the co-ordinating Thanks Word and Shadow Die Set.  I adhered some gold sequins randomly just to tie in the gold from the sentiment and the yellow from the bunny’s pants.

I wanted to have another sentiment on the inside of the card and the way that this little bunny is holding his hands/paws? seemed perfect for tucking a little banner underneath them so that it looks like he is holding it!
The sentiment is also from the You’re Too Kind Clear Stamp Set and was cut out using one of the many dies included in the Quick Strips Die Set.

Out of this World –Whimsy Stamps January Release

Happy Monday! I finally was able to get this post live. What is it about the first week of January? I just can’t get it together!  I think once the boys all get back to school, I will get back into a more productive routine.

I was super excited to see that Dustin Pike has designed some images for Whimsy Stamps. Way back in the day when I was designing for High Hopes Stamps, he did a ton of fun and quirky images for them.  They were always a big hit with my boys!

I teamed up a bunch of the new products to create this outer space scene.  I used my Copic markers and colored up some of the images from the A Boy’s Dream Clear Stamp Set (there are a few more cuties in the set that I didn’t use this time around).  I fussy cut them out and set them aside while I created the background. 

I used my Copic AMS to crate the galaxu scene. It was highly experimental but this is the first try and I love how it turned out.  I stamped the Moon Background Rubber Stamp and colored it up with various Cool grey markers. Then to even it all out, I airbrushed some light purples over top.  I fussy cut the edge and then cut it to size using my paper trimmer.  I then adhered the galaxy sky and the moon background to an A2 sized card. Finally, I die cut the new Wonky Window 1 Die using some black cardstock and adhered that over top the whole scene!

I unfortunately did not note down the Copic Markers that I used :(  As I noted at the beginning of this post…..I am not yet back into the swing of things!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the day.
