Dream Big! & Yummy Cupcakes!

Hey Friends! Aren't Ellies just adorable? This little guy is from the recently released Elephantastic clear stamp set by Dustin Pike for Whimsy Stamps. I colored this cutie with my Derwent Inktense Blocks and Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush. I kept the design simple. I used the Sprinkles Scallops Rectangle die set to cut out my cardstock layers. To make the image pop I cut out the middle layer from a pink  sheet of the 6x6 Mix 'n Match 2 papers. The sentiment was stamped on two little tags that I cut out using the Bookmark & Tags die set. I used burlap string to attach them to the sheer pink  organza ribbon. 3 pink confetti sequins are the only embellishments in addition to the organza ribbon.  Here are two more cards I created using the Creative Cupcakes Quick Card Fronts (QCF's). All our QCF's make for fast, fun and easy cards! These cupcake QCFs are especially yummy and versatile for many occasions like birthdays, anniversaries etc. Just add som

Merry Claw-mas - Whimsy Stamps October 10th Release

Hey Crafty Friends! Here is a Christmas card I made with products from Whimsy Stamps October 10th release! On my slimline card I used the NEW Santa Claws clear stamp set illustrated by Dustin Pike together with the NEW Slimline Banner die. I colored the images with Stabilo 68 water based brush markers and cut them out them with the coordinating outline dies which are available separately. The slimline banner die was die cut from gold and white glitter paper and layered on top of each other. The stars I've added are actually leftovers from another card I did last month and where laying around on my craft desk. I inked them up with matching gold yellow colors and sprinkled them with golden paint. The background paper I used is from the Slimline Champagne paper pack. My sentiment is a combination of the Merry large word die together with the word Claws-Mas that is included in Santa Claws set. To create some texture I've added Stardust Stickles and 3D Gloss to the images and

YAY! - Back To School!

Hey stamping friends! I am combining three newly released (August 1st) Whimsy Stamps products on my card as well as a shaker pouch and a pearl mix from This Calls For Confetti .  This cute and funny Dragon image is from Whimsy's exclusive Dustin Pike collection and I combined it with the YAY! word and shadow die as well as the Pink Plaid 6x6 papers. All the products are from August releases and brand new available in the Whimsy store! After I finished coloring my images with Karin Brush Markers Pro I decided it would look awesome to include a shaker element on my card.  My friend Lisa the owner of This Calls For Confetti has awesome options for shaker pouches and fillings in her store! I went with a cute heart shaker pouch and the Citrus Berry Diamond Pearl Mix.  A few confetti sequins in matching colors finish off my card.

Celebrate - The Robotic Way

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends! Its a slightly cooler morning here on the Space Coast and we are enjoying the pleasant temperatures. We had the day off yesterday and are enjoying a 4-day weekend! Woohoo! I was so looking forward to that and to spending some relaxing crafty time in my studio. Ok but now without further ado here is my first Whimsy creation for today. I adore these cute little robots 😍 from the 'Robots' clear stamp set illustrated by Dustin Pike and exclusively available at Whimsy Stamps. My images were colored using my Art-n-Fly alcohol marker. I combined the  Robots clear stamp set with the Celebrate Balloons clear stamp set from Whimsy's Barbara Sproatmeyer colletcion and the Peekaboo Window 5 die.

Happy Friends Day - Whimsy Stamps New Release

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends! The new release hit the Whimsy Stamps   store shelves yesterday and it's all about Summer & Celebration! 🌞🌞🌞 As a Florida resident of course this NEW Beach Babe s Flamingo clear stamp set was right up my alley 🦩🦩🦩. I colored the image using Karin Brush Markers and a waterbrush. I created the water splash background using the Puddles stencil. The Weird-O Frame that was released earlier this month was used to frame the image. I cut out the frame in black and pink and layered it with pink on top. This gives a bit more depth as you can see the black on the edges of the frame. The sentiment, which is included with the clear stamp set, was stamped with white pigment ink onto black cardstock and also heat embossed in white. I used Clear Dew Drops from This Calls For Confetti to embellish my card. Please find below all the Whimsy Stamps and This Calls For Confetti products I've used on my card.

Robotic Birthday Hugs

Hey Friends! I had to use one of these cute new Robots again and pair it with the awesome new Happy Birthday Coverplate. I just love this die. It is so versatile. You can just use part of it and combine it with other stamps and dies or for a really quick card use the die as is and just add a colorful background. In this case here for the card I only needed the birthday part. I combined it with the word hugs from the Big Hugs Word Die Set to create the sentiment. I colored the robot with my Art-n-Fly markers and Prisma pencils. I airbrushed the background and added some matching paint splatters. Some sequins and dew drops add the finishing touch to my card.
