Whimsy August Release - Day 2

Here are my inspirational creations for day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps August Release!

First up is Fall Fox, a rubber stamp illustrated by Krista Heij Barber. I made a CAS scene card using only Whimsy products and here is how....

To create the cloud background I used the Stitched Cloud die set and a blank stencil sheet. Using the large solid cloud die (not the outline one) I partial die cut the clouds along the edge of a blank stencil sheet alternating the two sides of the cloud die. So I would have different sizes of scallops on my stencil. This is what my self-made stencil looks like:

To partial die cut you sandwich your die between your cutting plates so that only the part of the die you want to cut is under the top plate. Only that part will be cut. Then I sponged the background with distress inks using my new cloud stencil.
I used hot pressed watercolor paper for my card and also to stamp the image on. The meadowy hills are created with the curved die of the Stitched Border Trio and also sponged with distress inks. The sentiment comes with the stamp. The image ahs been fuzzy cut and adhered to the card with some foam tape to give it extra dimension. As a finishing touch I've added tiny flowers using a white extra fine sharpie poster pen and a distress marker (fine tip).

My second card showcases the NEW Lily Flower die set by Bev Rochester and the NEW clear set Wedding Day by Jessie Banks.

I used the Lily Flower die set to create the large Foamiran flower. I used the Coral colored Foamiran. Foamiran is also available at Whimsy. Here are all other Whimsy products I used to create my card:
