Happy Campers

Gone Camping! Yeah well - noooo not so much...hahaha. I have to admit I don't like camping. I would rather spend my vacation time at home than in a tent or camper. Just not my thing.
 
Nevertheless the 'Gone Camping' clear stamp set from Whimsy is absolutely fabulous! I had so much fun creating this card and it is a fairly quick card to make as well. Read below how I did it. 

I used Strathmore Mixed Media paper for my background. I like this best for ink blending. You either like to use it to blend inks or you hate it. Some say the ink is 'swimming' and not staying in place. 
I have found that as long as I don't over do it with the ink it works fine for me. Sometimes I heat set it to help it dry more quickly. I can definitely achieve the smoothest blends with this paper.

After inking my BG with Distress inks I stamped the trees and fire place. Then I took a white gel pen and added the stars. The tent and sentiment I stamped on white mixed media paper, colored the tent using my Karin Brushmarkers Pro and cut both out. I adhered them to the card front with some foam dots and finished off my card by adding a few confetti sequins from This Calls for Confetti.

Simple Foiled Thank You

Happy Hump-Day Everyone! Today I am sharing a simple foiled thank you card using one of Whimsy's newest  word hot foil plates. 


I used the Thank You word hot foil plate and foiled it with rainbow glimmer foil. To create the tag I used the Antique ATC Frames die set. To make it pop I cut out a bright blue frame using the Shaker Maker Rectangle die set. Some confetti sequins and an organza ribbon finish off my CAS card.

You Are Roarsome


Here is a quick and simple and also fairly clean...lol ... dino card with a bit of a mixed media influence. The die I used here is called Roaring from Whimsy Stamps. 


To create the background I spritzed black acrylic paint on the white card base. I then stamped the border and sentiment with versafine clair tuxedo black ink. After die cutting the dino image and adhering it to the the card front using foam dots, I sprinkled white acrylic paint all over the die cut with a brush. Two black enamel dots finish of my card.
