Starfish Wishes

Happy Weekend! I am back today with an ocean themed card. The main image is Naia the Mermaid from Whimsy Stamps. I had this image colored for a while and never came around making it into a card. So today I was browsing YouTube a bit and came across a video from Vicky   where she made an art journal page with an ocean / underwater background.  I cased her technique of the background for my card: I added some distress stain (dauber bottle) to a white card panel (I used mixed media paper), let it dry and used the Whimsy Waves Stencil to sponge on some waves with distress ink. After all the ink was dry I added some white splatters with picket fence distress paint. Using a white, super fine Sharpie poster pen I drew some bubbles and added 3D glaze to make them stand out more. I then stamped the castle from the Salty Hair clear set with Versamark ink and gold embossed the castle. The sentiment is from the same set as are the seashells and starfish stamps I used.  Naia the M

Hello Fairy

Hello All! It's shabby-chic Sunday today - here is a card I made using Faye the Fairy from Whimsy Stamps '   Marina Fedotova collection I've neglected the shabby chic style quite a bit recently and was drawn more to the modern CAS look. I still am I have to admit but inbetween I really enjoy going back to my old style especially with these adorable fairy images <3 I colored the image with Copics. The sentiment was cut out using the NEW Bold ABC dies . I just love these letter dies. They are also perfect for shaker cards. Very versatile ABC die set. Here is a closer look on the ABC dies: I also used double sided vintage looking paper from my stash (I think it's from Maja Design, but not sure). Love double sided paper if you want to fold it over or have some cut-open effects where you can see the back of the paper. On my card here I folded over one corner and decorated it with flowers. It looks like the flowers are growing out of the paper. Love this

Whimsy May 2018 Release - Day 4

It's Day 4 of the Whimsy Stamps May 2018 Release.  Today I have the super cute NEW   Norbert and Fiona Playtime stamp to showcase. For my card I only used the dragon image and a sentiment from the set. Isn't he so cute? I love dragons as much as I love mermaids! The window is made with the NEW Card Builder Window s die set. To achieve the cloudy background I used the  Cloud Edger Die  and a  blank mylar sheet  to make my own stencil. Then I used my newly created stencil with blue and orange Distress inks and sponged the clouds onto the white die cut window (background piece and the frame) Image was colored with Copics. The sentiment (included in the set) and some sequins finish off my card. Copics used: Orange: YR18, YR16, YR15, Y35, Y13, Y11 Turquoise: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05 Teal: BG72, BG75, BG78 Whimsy products used:                                                    Thanks for stopping by Hugs,   

Hello Spring Fairy

Hi Everybody! For quite a long time I haven't made a shabby chic style card. So it was real fun again to dive into my flowers, lace and ribbon for a change......and this is what I came up with: I water colored NEW   Spring Fairy  with my distress inks. I opted for giving her white outlines for a change. I stamped with VersaMark ink onto Strathmore 400 Mixed Media paper and white heat embossed the image. See list of Distress inks used below. The papers I used are digital papers from Whimsy Stamps Crissy Armstrong digital collection - Flourishing Blooms . I decorated the card with flowers lace and ribbon from my stash. The white die cut leaves are from Whimsy's Shapeology collection called Leaf Foliage 2 by Crissy Armstrong. The sentiment is from the newly released  'Fly by'  clear stamp set. Love this set. It's so versatile and can be used on all different style cards. On the wings I used a lot of Wink of Stella clear shimmer. Unfortunately it is hard to

Whimsy January Release - Day 2

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Day 2 of Whimsy's January Release Week. Today I have yet again another CAS style card using the new rubber stamp ' Flower Fairy' by Marina Fedotova. I colored her using Copics. I drew a frame around the image and the background dots were stenciled using the new Polka Dots Stencil . I used my Distress ink pad Tumbled Glass and a finger sponge dauber to stencil the dots. To add some glitz to the image I applied Stickles to her wings. Sentiment is from the new   'You're my always ' sentiment set and the glitter dots are from the Winter Wishes Enamel Dots .  All products are available in the store   now! Here are the products I used on my card:
