Hello Friends and Happy Hump-Day! Today I want to share a quick card with you. It's a CAS style card with just a few die cuts and a sentiment.

Cupid in Training

Happy Monday ! I've to share another Valentines card today. I used a clear stamp set from Whimsy's December 2017 release,  'Cupid in training' , as well as the coordinating dies ' Cupid in training die set' . Both are illustrated by the very talented Deb Davis from Amped to Stamp . My card base is 4 1/4" x 11" folded cross-wise. I made my background by stamping the little target image all over a layer of white cardstock (5 1/4" x 4") using Versafine onyx black ink and attched it to my card base. I then cut a layer of heavy vellum paper (5 1/8" x 3 7/8") and layered in on top of my background using clear foam tape. I colored the Cupid with Copics and stamped the heart garland with Memento Love Letter ink. Both were cut out using the coordinating dies from the ' Cupid in training die set' . The sentiment is included with the   'Cupid in training'  clear set. I stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock with

Happy Chocolate Day!

Hi Everyone! Today I have some Valentine inspiration for you. On my card I am showcasing a clear stamp set from the December 2017 release called Crazy For Chocolate , an older large word die 'Happy' and the newly released Polka Dot Stencil . To make this card I started by cutting my card base 4.25" x 11" from heavy weight bright white Hammermill cardstock. Folding it in half cross-wise. Using the   Polka Dot Stencil   and   some pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse I created the dotted background. I colored the bowl of chocolate from the  Crazy For Chocolate   set using Copic alcohol markers   and cut it out using the coordinating Crazy For Chocolate die set . I've added   Stickles Sprinkled Sugar   to the top of each candy. Once it's dry it really looks like sprinkled sugar crystals. I love that it looks so real! Hre see for yourselves: The sentiment was partly cut out from brown cardstock using the   large word die 'Happy'   and t

Best Friends No Matter What

Hi Everyone! Today's card showcases several stamps and a die set from the new Whimsy January release . Most of the products used on my project are linked below. I stamped the cat from the 'A Girls Best Friend' set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink   and colored her with Copics . I then die cut the little furry friend using the matching 'A Girls Best Friend Dies' . I created a rainbow background with the Lattice Background stamp and the coordinating Background Lattice Buddies . Here I used the little paw from this set. There are 28 little designs to choose from. This gives you endless possibilities for creating your own backgrounds. I stamped the background using Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then sponged the background with Tim Holtz Distress inks (mermaid lagoon, picked raspberry, carved pumpkin and twisted citron). The sentiment is from the 'You're My Always' clear set. I stamped again with  Versam
