Beach Time - Frogs and Huts

Lots of Summer vibes with the newest Whimsy Stamps release! I used one of the fabulous NEW Toner Cards from the Slimline Wavy pack and combined it on my A2 sized card with the Beach Frogs and Beach Huts clear stamp sets.

I foiled the wavy toner card using a satin lime green foil from Deco Foil. I wanted it to match the green of the Beach Frog. I foiled using a cheap laminator and it came out perfectly. The toner cards are awesome even if you do not have a fancy minc machine. A laminator will work as well! 

I colored the images using Karin Brushmarker Pro. I cut out the frog image and clouds using the matching Beach Frogs Outline dies.

Slimline Dragonfly Thank You - Whimsy June 1st Mini Release

Hello fellow crafters! Wishing you all a Happy Thursday or how a friend of mine says - Happy TGIF-Eve 😁 I have a slimline card to share with you today. Yesterday Whimsy released a bunch of new products including a fabulous new slimline background die - Dragonflies BG and an awesome thank you sentiment set with coordinating outline dies - Many Thanks. 

I used a sheet of the rainbow magic papers behind the Dragonflies die to make it pop against my dark blue cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto bright pink CS with a dark blue ink and then cut out using the matching outline die. I also stamped an addition to the sentiment which I cut out using the Simple Sentiment Strips die. I ran the Dragonflies BG die through my Vagabond machine again using silver cardstock. I then used these mini dragonflies to decorate my card. Below is a link list of all Whimsy products I've used for my card.

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.
