Slider Card | Whimsy Stamps July Release


Happy Wednesday! This month is just flying by! Our family has quite a few birthdays this month so we are doing a lot of celebrating! I have a little less time in the craft studio but when I do have time, I have been having fun with so many of the new Whimsy products!

Today I have a fun slider card that I made with some of Whimsy Stamps new July release! I LOVE, LOVE the new slider die set! I knew right away that I waned to pair it up with the new Hugs ‘n Fishes stamp set. Also, I finally was able to get the Hand-stitched Rectangle die set… has been selling out so quick! I really like that the stitching detail is a little wavy as opposed to being straight all the way around. It is just a little more whimsical this way!

I will let you in on a little secret. Although I had seen slider cards up on Pinterest and Instagram…..I had no idea how to make one. When you watch the video, this was my first attempt. You will see that I learned a few things along the way! I do have to say that I am hooked and more slider cards will be showing up here soon.

Water Lily

Happy Sunday! I am quickly writing up this post so that I can share a new Sugar Nellie creation with you.  I used an image from the Home Grown collection  to create another page for my Art Journal album using the lovely retiring digital image:

Water Lily

I sized and positioned the image to create an underwater look. The background was created using Copic Markers and the Copic ABS. The image was also colored with Copic Markers.

This image is retiring soon but is on sale! Grab it at a fantastic price before it is gone!

Have a great rest of the weekend.

Framed Card | New Whimsy Release + Video

Happy Friday! Have you been loving Whimsy’s new July release? There are so many new products and they are all so sweet!

Today I am featuring the new “Ellie & Mouse Friend” rubber stamp from the new release.  I think if you are a regular visitor to this blog, you know how much I adore elephants!

I made a framed card that showcases the sweet image and also let me add an ombre word die-cut. You will see in the video just how I did this! It is not complicated at all and in fact is quite easy.

I think that by keeping my card base and frame white, I was able to really highlight the image. I picked up the background sky color and used that same color for the sentiment, ribbon and sequins.
