With Love ~ Whimsy July Mini Release

Happy Friday! Hope you are all doing okay.  We are in the middle of a heat wave and I must admit that I am just staying indoors...thankful for air-conditioning!  It is like being in soup outside!

Another mini release from Whimsy Stamps today and I have combined a new set: FaDoodle Hearts Clear Stamp Set with the Polka Dot Pals Louisa Clear Stamp SetLeaves Background Rubber Cling Stamp and the Mason Atlas Jar Die Set.

I created the background by using different colors of embossing powder with the Leaves Background Rubber Cling Stamp I then diecut the jar from that background.

Louisa and the hearts were colored with copic markers and then fussy cut out.

Ha-Bee Birthday

Happy Canada Day!!! The celebrations this year will be a different but I hope you enjoy your day nonetheless!

It is a happy coincedence that my card today is a birthday card! Whimsy Stamps is continuing with their mini releases and I hope that you are enjoying seeing something new every few weeks!

The new Honey Comb Drips Stencil is an awesome new stencil and so very clever in that you can add the drips of honey overtop the honeycomb!  I started with a piece of light yellow cardstock and then blended some Scattered Straw Distress over top.  I was able to concentration of ink to have the deepest blend on the bottom and feathering up to the top to give a much lighter effect.  I then placed the drip portion on the top and applied a heavy concentration of ink.

The images and the sentiment are from the lately released Hap-Bee Birthday Clear stamp set.  There is a new bee set that was just released that would also be absolutely perfection paired with this stencil. It is the Bizzy Bees Clear Stamp Set.

Images were colored with Copic Markers:
C1, C3, C5, BG11, B000, R20, YR31, Y15

Sentiment was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink.

Thinking of You

Happy Saturday! I hope that you are having a nice weekend so far.  I have a bunch of little projects that I need to tackle and hopefully I will get through a lot of them!
I wanted to share this simple card I created with just a bit of die-cutting, heat embossing and some ink blending! 

I blended up some Distress inks in Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Salty ocean onto Bristol Smooth card-stock and then spritzed water over top, dabbing with a paper towel until I achieved this marbled, distressed look.

Once it was all dry, I die cut the various sized stars from the Primitive Shaker Shapes Die SetI left the smaller ones empty and then added the diecuts to the middle, larger star.

The sentiment was from the Sympathy Life Goes On Clear Stamp Set and was white heat embossed.

This card can be switched up using the moon and hearts, different ink colors and different sentiments to create a totally different look but using the same simple steps!
Hope you are inspired to try it out yourself!

Magical Wishes

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a good day! This time around, Whimsy Stamps' mini release includes a very cute trio of unicorns and that is the set that I have used for today's card!

The images from the Unicorn Wishes Clear Stamp Set were stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Neenah cardstock and then colored with the following copic markers:

0, C00, C1, C3, C5 C7, C9 RV00, RV52, RV66 G00, BG11, FYG2, B000, B23, YR30,Y23, YR15

I then fussy cut them out and prepared my background.  I used various dye inks to create the colorful sky and used a cloud stencil that made all those perfect, fluffy clouds.

I die cut the upper edge using the Fish and Mice Border Die Set.  The little hearts that were cut were first colored with some copic markers and then scattered over the card and adhered them.

UGH! Whimsy Stamps

Happy Sunday! I have a fun little card to share with you today.  You can mix and match so many of the Whimsy Stamps products to create fun cards and the limit is only your own imagination! This card just makes me smile and reminds me of various mishaps at the ocean-side.  I may have never emerged from the ocean with an octopus on my head, but myself and other members of my family have had some adventures with ocean life! 

The images are from the Hippo Beach Fun Clear Stamp Set and were colored up with Copic Markers and then fussy cut.

I cut a mat using one of the fabulous papers in the Cosmic Paper Pack.  I then die cut the word out of the card-stock using the UGH Word and Shadow Die I then used the same die and cut out the word using some red card-stock.  Once I had adhered the mat, I could add the die-cut words as an inset and this creates just one single layer.  I love how this looks!

 I created the sand using some Kraft card-stock and one the dies in the Stitched Border Die TrioThis is one of my tried and true sets that I reach for almost every time I create a card. I did blend a little sand coloured ink to the bottom portion to add a little depth.

Make A Splash!

Happy Saturday! I hope that wherever you may be, you are happy and safe and enjoying some fine weather!

Today I wanted to share a fun card that I made for a special little someone using one of the mermaid images from Sweet November Stamps!  As this is a digital image, I was able to crop it to be quite large and I love how it changes the look up!  The image is called Splash Seasong.

Everything was colored using Copic markers on Neenah Solar Crest White paper.  The sentiment was computer generated by myself.  I added some white to the water using a white Posca pen (linked below). This is by far my favorite pen to add white highlights.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a glorious rest of the day!

Whimsy Stamps Mini Release

Happy Monday! A brand new week and a new card from a new release!  I am really liking having these mini releases instead of one big one once a month.

I love Whimsy Stamps line of Slimline Dies and this new one: the Slimline Wonky Window 1 Die is so reminiscent of comic strips that I know that I can create many cards with a story! I used it with the new Super Cats Clear Stamp Set as well as the Kitty Cat Extras Die Set I thought that they would work well together.

I did a little ink blending on the inside panels and then die cut the different elements using a rainbow of colored paper. The cat itself was inked up with Versamark Fine Black Onyx ink and then fussy cut.
