Blimey Pirates!

Hello crafty friends! It's another Whimsy Stamps release today and it's all about Pirates! On my card I am showcasing both,  the NEW Blimey Pirates clear stamp set and matching NEW Blimey Pirates Outline Dies. They are both available now in the STORE. Please scroll down for all products links.


I used Distress Oxide inks, masking paper, blending brushes and a water spritzer to create my background. I stamped the images onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper with a hybrid ink. I colored with waterbased markers as well as alcohol markers. After die cutting the images with the matching outline dies I adhered them using foam tape. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and added a few glossy black sequins from This Calls for Confetti.

Let's Go Team!

It's the first of August and that means it's time for a Whimsy release! I am showcasing several of the new products on my card! You'll find all the new products in the store HERE.



On my A2 sized card I used the NEW Pink Plaids 6x6 papers to create my background. I combined the NEW Cheerleaders die set with the NEW Let's Play Sports clear stamp set as my focal points. The extra  separate pom pom dies make it easy to customize your die cuts. I opted for white glitter paper to add some bling to my card. You could also customize them to match your favorite sports or school team. A few matching sequins from 'This Calls For Confetti' finish off my card.

Welcome Baby

Hey Crafty Friends! On my card today I am showcasing a super cute stamp set illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and available @ Whimsy Stamps. It's called Critter Babies.



My cardbase is A2 size from kraft cardstock. I applied a watercolor wash on mixed media paper using Kitsch Flamingo Distress Refill Ink. The images were colored using Stabilo Pen 68 Brush Pens. I mounted the images onto glitter cloud which I die cut from white glitter paper using the NEW Ripples Die Set. I wrapped burlap twine around the background layer and adhered the glitter cloud with a cloth pin. To give more stability to the images I also added some foam tape underneath. The sentiment was partly stamped onto the background layer and also white cardstock and cut out using the Simple Sentiment Strips. Sequins and Crystals used to embellish my card can all be found @ This Calls For Confetti.

Florida Love

It's June 1st and that means it is release time at Whimsy Stamps. The new products hit the shelves at midnight. On my project today I am showcasing four of the new products.


It's all about Florida - my home state πŸ’– Also called The Sunshine State 🌞. We are the southeasternmost state and have the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. This means hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches πŸ„ and a subtropical climate. Manatees, Sea Turtles, Alligators, Dolphins, Panthers, Black Bears and many more, all call Florida their home. As well as an abundance of tropical flora. 
So on my card today I showcase a few of Florida's landmarks - the manatee, the sea turtle, the hibiscus blossom and tropical foliage. In the background you can see the states shape with the name inlayed. 
All created using the newest Whimsy products. Please see below for a product link list.








Hugs,

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.

Hello Imagination and a Beachy Scene

Happy TGIF and Hello Imagination! No creativity without imagination - these two belong together. Imagination gives my brain a booster to be creative in many ways and come up with all sorts of creative ideas. Did you know that passive activities like reading can be a trigger for more creativity and simple everyday tasks like walking and cooking usually calm our brain and can boost imagination. 

To create this card I used the NEW Woolly Bear Kids - Imagination clear stamp set by Barbara Sproatmeyer, exclusively available from Whimsy Stamps. I combined it with the SL Gullivers Garden papers and the Hello Word and Shadow die set. To finish up my card I've added some glitter glue and Wheat Sparkle Gems from This Calls for Confetti.



On my second card I used the NEW Seashells and Sunshine rubber stamp which I colored using Karin Brush Marker Pro.


The sentiment is from the NEW Special Day clear stamp set. To embellish my card I've added some Stickles glitter glue 'Stardust' , burlap string and a shell charm.

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 Babes 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.
