Happy 60. Birthday Card - Journey to Egypt

Hey Crafty Friends! Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday. I am here today with my last Whimsy creation for September. It's another request I had. Again for a birthday card, this time it's for someone who likes to travel to Egypt. Ok was quite a challenge because I do not have any Egypt related stamps in my stash. But I got creative and came up with this - all Whimsy products of course ;-) I used the  Shaker Maker Pennant Flag dies , the   Brick Pattern Stencil  and Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy to create the pyramids. The boat and the waves are are from the Splash clear stamp set . I created a back ground with Brusho (Ultramarine and Turquoise) and stamped the waves with Versamark ink on top and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The frame was made using the notched rectanlgle dies. I added some bling with Sparkletz Crystal Stars and Sparkletz Sailors Sky.  On the insides is the rest of the sentiment: Whimsy products used:       

Soccer Themed Birthday Card

Hey Peeps! I had a request for a soccer themed birthday card. This is what I came up with using all Whimsy products. I created the background using the Grass and Cloud Edger die set. For the sky I created a stencil with the cloud die and airbrushed the clouds with my Copic airbrush system. For the grass I used a super nice green cardstock I had left from an older  PaperDoor  kit. It is flat and almost looks like velvet but is silky smooth to the touch. I love this cardstock. I thought it's perfect for the grass and gives a bit of a fancy touch to this sporty card. For the soccer ball I die cut a circle from white cardstock. Then I die cut the honeycomb pattern from black cardstock and also die cut a circle in the same size from the already die cut honeycomb pattern. I layered it on top of the white circle. I saved some of the small honeycomb cut outs and added them to the ball to create the special soccer ball look. The little flag was created with two thin stripes o

Halloween Treat Bag - September Paper Door

Happy Sunday All! Are you working on your Halloween Treat Bags already? I made another one with the Whimsy  PaperDoor  September kit. I used one of the orange striped treat bags that came with the kit and stamped on some smaller candy corns in black. I filled it with candy and tied it up with the black and white gingham ribbon - also included in the kit. To decorate I die cut a tombstone using the tombstone die set from the kit as well as the shiny orange glitter cardstock. The sentiment is from the September release called You're My Boo. I stamped with black ink and fussy cut the two words. I glued them to the glitter tombstone together with some die cut bats.

Delightful Daisies - watercolored

Hello Friends. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I have a card for you today I made using the  Delightful Daisies Background Stamp  from the September release again. I love this BG stamp so much. It is so versatile and can be used for much more than just as a background. Last time I used Copics to color these beautiful daisies and today I used my Altenew watercolors. The background is also made using the watercolors and I wanted it to look like the color is running off of the blossoms. It's not exactly how I wanted it to be but I hope you get the idea. No sentiment on this card as I wanted to keep the focus on the pretty flowers and the colors. Here is a closer look from the side. I also added some black sprinkles to the BG and put on some sequins and glass drops to embellish. In this close-up you can see the German glass glitter I added to the flower centers. I wanted to give it some extra dimension. Here are all the Whimsy s

Bat Balloon

Hello Crafters & Happy Hump-Day! I have a Halloween card to share with you today. I combined the super cute Bat Balloon  rubber stamp, Tree Silhouette rubber stamp and the  Halloween Creatures Stencil  on my card. I sponged the background with Distress Oxide inks and stamped the  Tree Silhouette  using Versafine Clair Morning Mist. I then stenciled the flock of bats with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. The  Bat Balloon  stamp was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black onto Hammermill 100lb Digital Copy Cover Stock, colored with Copics and cut out. I adhered the image to the background using foam tape for more dimension. A few Sequins and a very thin paper strip as balloon string complete this fun Halloween card. The purple glitter paper I used as a layer is from an older PaperDoor kit.   Here are all the products form the Whimsy store I used:                                                                    Thanks for visiting!
