Here is my card for Denise:

I went for some flowers and chose the Bees Knees clear stamp set from Barbara Sproatmeyers line. I combined it with Twinkle Scribble and Connected Rectangle dies. The sentiment is from the Simple Sentiment Strips and cut out using one of the Quick Strip dies. Please scroll down for a link list of all products used as well as a How-To.

Quick How-To

I started out with a 5.5" square card base in white. I cut another layer from white cardstock just 1/4" shy of the card base size. I use this as my background layer. I inked the background using Distress inks Mustard Seed, Kitsch Flaming and an inking brush. 
I then cut the Connected Rectangle from white cardstock and the Twinkle Scribble from pink glitter paper.
I stamped the large flower stamp onto Hahnemühle watercolor paper with Versafine Clair ink. I colored the flowers with Karin Brushmarker Pro pens and a waterbrush (for a list of colors used see below).
I then fussy cut the image. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink onto black cardstock and heat embossed white. The sentiment was cut out using one of the Quick Strip dies.
To assemble my card I first added the Connected Rectangle and on top the Twinkle Scribble. Then I added the flower image with foam tape. Finally the sentiment was added, also with foam tape, on top of all the other elements. For a finishing touch I decorated the card with confetti sequins (glazed peach, glazed cherry) and little bees from a confetti mix called Spring Buzz.

Karin Brushmarker Pro colors used:

Gold, Amber, Arctic Blue, Cool Grey2, Lime Green, Olive Green

T-Rex Greetings

Hello Friends! I am here today with a roarsome dino card featuring one of the characters of the NEW Roarsome Rex clear stamp set from Whimsy Stamps May 5th mini release

I combined it with the also NEW Roarsome Skin Background stamp and Roaring die set. I thought this cheeky T-Rex would be a looker together with the smart phone die from the Selfies die set.
I stamped the background using Versafine Clair Charming Pink ink and heat embossed it clear to enhance the leathery look of the skin. I die cut the pterosaur from white glitter paper and added it to the the phones background behind the main image. I colored the Roarsome Rex image using Karin Pro Brushmarkers. The sentiment is included with the Roarsome Rex clear set.

OMG! - Monster Miss You

Happy Saturday! Here is my last card for this month. Again I am using some of the cute monsters from the Monster Moods clear set released earlier this month. 

I made a mini slimline card combining the monsters with several other newly released products. 
You will find a list of products used below. I colored these cuties with Ohuhu markers but unfortunately I did not write down the colors I used. I am getting asked often about the color combinations but most of the time I don't write them down. I apologize but it's mostly a time issue. I'll try to get better at this and make more notes about my color combinations 😀

Think Happy Thoughts

Happy TGIF Crafty Friends! I am totally in love with the super cute little monster clear stamp sets Whimsy released earlier this months. They are from the Crissy Armstrong Collection and are called Monster Birthday and Monster Moods

On my card I used one of the little monster fellas from the Monster Moods clear stamp set and colored with Ohuhu Alcohol Markers. I created the rainy background using the It's Raining 6x9 stencil and the NUVO Glimmer Paste in Esmeralda Green. The puddle the little monster is jumping in joyfully was created with another stencil called Puddles 6x6 stencil. I first inked the puddle with Distress Oxide inks, cut it out and then added Stickles glitter glue for some bling. The sentiment is one of the  Positives sentiments, stamped with Versamark ink onto teal cardstock and white heat embossed. To add the stitching on my sentiment banner I used one of the Envelope Edger dies.

You Are Purrfect!

Hi Everyone! Here is another card I made using products from Whimsy's most recent release. I combined the new Kitty Frame die and Scribdoodle critter papers with earlier released products You Are word die set and Kitty Cat Extras die set.

To make the large words pop I die cut them several times from black cardstock, layered them and added 3D gloss on top. When I added the Kitty Frame I first thought of making a shaker card. I think this is just what this frame screams...SHAKER! Then I decided otherwise and wanted to make it pop without being a shaker. I added blue cardstock for the background that matches my designer paper. I added the word 'purrfect' die cut from bright pink cardstock and added a little fishy and some sequins. I think it is just the perfect little element to coordinate with my large word sentiment and the background papers.

Vintage Christmas - Whimsy Stamps Last Release of 2021

Hey Everyone! Can you believe it? It's December 1st and Whimsy's last release of the year! Wow! Where has the time gone!? 

I am sharing two vintage style Christmas cards today using kraft paper and a CAS layout. The stamp set I used is also called Vintage Christmas and is a clear set by DoveArt. 
I kept the design really simple and on the left card I only used white heat embossing and stamped the sentiment in black. A classic red ribbon and some sequins to decorate the card. 
On the right card I stamped the tree with dark green ink and heat embossed the snowman in white. The sentiment is stamped in black. This time I used a dark green ribbon to match the tree color and as well some sequins.

Ho, Ho, Ho, - Black and White Christmas

Ho, Ho, Ho, - come and celebrate another awesome Whimsy Christmas release with us! There are awesome stamps like the cutest reindeer and penguins as are there some amazing slimline products. One of them, the Slimline Diagonal Dots, I am using on my black & white Christmas card.

I decided to keep my card just black and white. One half of the BG being a pattern paper from the Christmas Eve 6x6 papers  released earlier this month and the other half was embossed using the NEW Slimline Diagonal Dots embossing folder. I love this pattern, soooo versatile and perfect for any occasion. Then I cut out the words Merry and Christmas each from black and white cardstock. I wanted them to be half black and white as well. I kept the design very simple with just a few sequins for decoration.
