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. Products used on my card     Thanks for stopping by!

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,

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

Happy Friends Day - Whimsy Stamps New Release

Image
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.

Cute Little Monster

Happy Weekend! 'Monster Cuties' is the name of this newly released clear stamp set illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and exclusively available in the Whimsy store now. I started out with a dark teal A2, top-fold card base. I inked the background with Distress Oxide ink Salvaged Patina using the 'Brick Pattern Stencil'. Then I cut out the NEW Weird-O Frame die from white cardstock and the dots from patterned paper (a gelli print scrap I had laying around) and white glitter paper.  I stamped the 'Monster Cuties' onto Strathmore Mixed Media Paper with Versafine Onyx. I colored the images using FC Albrecht DΓΌrer watercolor pencils. The sentiment was stamped onto mixed media paper as well and cut out with the 'Quick Strip' die set' and 'Simple Sentument Strips' die set. I arranged everything on my card front and adhered it with liquid glue and foam squares/dots. As a finishing touch I added some Stardust Stickles and glazed sequin confetti

Happy Sunday ! Here is some more inspiration from Whimsy's newest release showcasing the newest military dies in the collection. I opted for a slimline card and it is (besides the little sentiment) a dies-only card. I also used the Slimline Military Papers to cut out some of the clothes parts of the NEW Military Profiles. Thanks for your visit!
