BnW Challenge & Whimsy Sneak Peek

Hello Everyone & Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all well and had a good start into the week. Well I'm a bit late with my creation for our BnW Challenge as the challenge already started yesterday... *doooh*. But better late than never, right? And this fortnights theme is 'Anything Goes'!
So here comes my card I made using 'Pretty in Patches' from the just 'reborn' SweetArt Girls II collection. There are now 17 SweetArt Girl stamps available through Belles 'n Whistles.

I colored this beautiful little girl using my Copics. DP is from my new Bo Bunny "Garden Girl' paper pad and I thought it is just perfect for this stamp. Sentiment is from Whimsy's Summer Letter Seals. Flowers are from my stash and punched out using my retro flower punches.

So lets see what you've got and come and join in on our challenge! You can use any stamp designed by Elisabeth Bell to enter our challenges. It doesn't have to be a Belles 'n Whistles stamp. But if you have one we would love to see what you are creating with it! ;-)


It's Sneak Peek Day 6 today at Whimsy and tomorrow is the big day - Blog Hop Day! So make sure and come back tomorrow to participate and have the chance of winning some yummy prizes along the way!

My Whimsy creation today is a complete different style from what I just showed you above. I made two cards and they are CAS, One Layer and Quick & Easy! By using the new School Yard Fun Sentiment Set I want to show you how easy and simple it can be to make a quick card when you are short of time but need a card.

I used kraft cardstock and stamped the image and sentiment right onto it. For coloring I used my Copics. On the left card I just added some bakers twine and used my Sakura Stardust Pen to give some glitz to the numbers. On the right card I drew a frame around the image after I was done coloring. Here are two more photos of the cards:

Thanks for visiting today and please stop by tomorrow for an exciting Whimsy Blog Hop!
