Live Laugh Love - Mixed Media Tag

Hey Everyone & Happy Sunday! Welcome to my blog today where I would like to show you a mixed media tag I made using all Whimsy Stamps products. Whimsy has such a huge variety on stamps that make it easy to create in the mixed media style. My mixed media style is more on the cute side. I am not really a huge fan of the non-cute stamps and/or steampunk stamps. 



One day I was browsing Pinterest and I saw a mixed media tag that inspired me to create something similar with just Whimsy products. Especially after the release of the Build a Fairy Garden die set. 

Here is the link to the tag where I got my inspiration from! 


I started out with a white tag cut from mixed media paper. I then covered the tag with a layer of very light pink acrylic paint. I then added some texture with structure paste and stencils (brick and honeycomb - linked below). I added color with my Gelatos and a water brush and more texture and interest to the backgound with FADoodles clear stamps and Distress Background stamps (all linked below).


The hearts and flowers were stamped and fussy cut. The other elements from the Build a Fairy Garden set were die cut and colored with Karin Markers. For the Fairies and the grass I used Distress Embossing Glaze. 


The stem of the tall mushroom was drawn onto mixed media paper and cut out. I used the stem die as guide, just made it longer so it would fit perfectly on my tag. Some details were added with white gesso, black fine liners and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen.

May All Your Dreams Come True - Unicorn Magic Challenge

Hey Crafty-Friends! Time for another challenge with my friends Alanna and Faye. This time we are using the cute Unicorn Magic stamp set and each of us is using a different coloring medium. It's my time to use pencils.

Please visit Alanna's blog here
and Faye's blog here
to see their amazing Unicorn creations!


I colored the image with CaranD'ache Luminance and CaranD'ache Pablo pencils. The image was stamped with Inkon3 Fade Out ink onto kraft mixed media paper. I combined the new Slimline Cloud die with a sheet of the Bokeh Bliss papers to create the background for my unicorn. The sentiment is included in the Unicorn stamp set.

Alpha and the Omega

Hi there! I am back today to show more of my release creations for Whimsy's March 1st release. The NEW Savior dies and Savior sentiments combined with the NEW Glorious Sky Slimline Papers make perfect Easter cards or Condolence & spiritual cards. 


There's no coloring involved this time in my first card. It's an all die cut card. Just the sentiment is stamped. Together with the Glorious Sky Slimline Papers and the Slimline Cloud die the Savior dies and Savior sentiments make a perfect Easter card. 



On my second card I just used the Glorious Sky Slimline Papers and the 3 crosses die from the Savior die set and cut them out from black cardstock. I wanted the background papers to stand out. This paper pack is fantastic and one of my favorite Slimeline paper packs so far. I just added a frame cut from white glitter paper to give the card a bit of a subtle sparkle. I omitted the sentiment because I think in this case less is more. This card is made as a Easter card but would make a perfect Condolence card as well.
