Just Keep Swimming - Turner Syndrome Foundation Card Auction

Hi Friends! Today I want to share a card with you that I made for a special cause. Lori Kobular is hosting a card auction to support the Turner Syndrome Foundation starting on Friday July 2nd. Here is a LINK to her Instagram account where you can see all the wonderful cards up for auction and where you also be able to put your bits in. 100% of the proceeds are going to the TSF! I donated several of my cards for the auction including this one here. If you are interested you'll find this card and can bid on it HERE . I used Fish Fanzy clear stamp set together with the Connected Bubbles die - one of my favorites. The BG is created using a sheet of the Under the Sea slimline papers and I added more details with the Ocean stencil to it. There is also a matching slimline envelope which I created using the Slimline Envelope Builder die set. I used another of the Under the Sea papers to line the inside of the envelope. Here is the inside of the card Whimsy products used: Hope to s

Lookin Shark Challenge & Whimsy Release

Whimsy's Newest Release is out! It's challenge time again. My friends Alanna and Faye are challenging each other again. We each use  different coloring mediums but the same stamp sets. Make sure to visit their blogs to see their fabulous creations!  So this time we decided on the super cute Lookin' Sharp clear stamp set from Whimsy's newest release designed by Dustin Pike. I am using pencils today with a little twist to it.  I colored this fella with Caran D'ache Pablo pencils. This time I added a little twist to my pencil coloring by laying down the lightest color with alcohol markers. Just one color flat, no shading, nothing. Then I colored the image as I normally would with pencils. I used mixed media paper and a hybrid ink. I love this method working on a layer of base color. It also speeds up the coloring process a bit too and that is a nice advantage as pencil coloring can really be time consuming. Yep, it's another shaker card 😂. Looks like

Whimsy Mid Month Mini Release - #Fun

What a fun release this is - Whimsy Stamps mid month mini release! Do you like gnomes? Then this one definitely is for you! Check it out here in the Whimsy store.  All Whimsy products I used are listed below with links! I stamped the cute little gnome with the kite onto Strathmore mixed media paper using a black hybrid ink. I knew I want to use several different coloring mediums and this gave me options. I ended up coloring this cutie with alcohol markers, pencils and watercolors.  I have some alcohol markers which I do not like to use as much as others. So I had to think of a different way to use them and I tried combining them with other mediums. On my card today I used them together with pencils.  Oh and I will not mention any names of markers I don't like because I feel it is a personal preference if you like a marker brand or not. So for someone else they might be the perfect marker.  What I do is I lay down the lightest color (sometimes light and medium but mostly
