Whimsy Release- Spooks and Spells

Are you ready for fall yet?  I am decidedly NOT!  Summer didn't start here until after July 4th and so it is too soon to think of fall and school and all those things.  BUT, I am OK with some cute fall themed cards, sooo..... I am here today sharing a card from the Whimsy Stamps new release from today.  

Don't you just love this fun Halloween card?!  I have to say, I adore this new Slimline Stars die, it is pretty fabulous.  You'll note that i used the cut stars as confetti here.  
Here is how I made this: I started by using the die with black cardstock.  Next, I took a piece of white and used Lemonade, Pumpkin, Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress inks of the pane.  Then, I added some Ink on 3 Liquid Pixie Dust to give it some shimmer.  I set that aside to dry.   See below for a look at the shimmer that provides.
After that was complete, I stamped several images from the new Spooks & Spells Stamp Set on Copic friendly paper.  Then I colored the image using my markers (C1, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, E13, E15, E44, E49, B000, BV08, BV13, BV17, V15, V17, G00, G14, BG18, YG91, YG95, YG97, YG06, YR02, YR04, YR07, Y13, Y15).  Once they were done I cut them out and used foam to mount them.  I added more sparkle to a few bits (bat wings and poison bottles).  I added some glossy accents to the bats eyes for a final touch. 

Pretty spooktacular right!? ;)

Just Eat Cake

Happy Monday!  I have such a super fun card to share with you today from Whimsy Stamps.  

Aren't they cute?!  I love these darling gnomes from the Gnome Birthday Clear Stamp Set.  The colors I chose were to match Birthday Celebration Paper Pack.  It was the right choice, because it is perfection.  I used the Slimline Marquee die with red paper.  I colored my gnomies with Copics (E's- 00, 02, 13, 15, 25, 51, 53, W- 1, 3, 5, C- 1, 3, 7, R- 14, 29, 35, 37, Y- 11, 13, 15, YG- 03, 06, 11, B- 12, 23, 24).  I stamped the sentiment on blue and popped it onto the card.  I used foam to mount the gnomes.  Then I added some sequins with glue dots. 

Which gnome is your favorite?  Mine is.... oh crap, I can't pick, I love something about each of them.  I love the bright card. 

I hope you like this card and thank you for visiting.  Be sure to head to Whimsy to check out the awesome new release!

Trinity New Release

Happy Sunday!  I hope you have been having a great weekend!  I have been enjoying the sunshine. 

On Friday, Trinity had a new release with tons of fun goodies.  I have a couple creations to share that use several.  

First up is this birthday party scene.  It was super fun to make and i love the cute girls having so much fun.  I warn you that I missed and matched a lot of products on this one, so get ready!

First, I created the living room scene with the Slimline Series Room Builder Die.  It has so many fun pieces and ways to make your scene.  I used brown for a wood flooring and white paneling with blue wallpaper, accent carpet and curtain. I used vellum for the window and check out my cool plant and wall hangings.  Inside the wall hanging frames I used a sentiment from Dir-Tea Bunny. Once I had my scene, I die cut some balloons for my bday party.  I stamped and die cut the banners from the Treetop Adventures stamp and die set and colored them with Copics. The nest image is also from this set.  Once that was done, I worked on my gals.  The young girls are from Classroom Cuties stamp and die set.  You'll noticed I paper pieced some of their clothes with Doodlebugs paper.  The Mom is from the Let's Ride Together stamp and die set.  I used the cake from Happee Birthdae set.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment from A Sentiment for (almost) Everything and die cut it using the banner from the Mini Slimline set.   Whew!  

That was a lot of work, but so worth it don't you think!?

Next up is a super easy tag by comparison, but the bold colors and message give it big impact.  I love this fun new stamp called Hang in There stamps and die.  I stamped it on rainbow DP from Doodlebugs.  I paper piced the white parts on top.  I colored in the hangar.  I put it on this bright yellow tag and tied it onto a bag with some twine for a nice encouraging gift.  I am thinking this is perfect for a candle!

Well thanks for visiting today.  I hope you enjoy these fun creations and check out the new goodies at Trinity!

A Million Hugs

Happy Monday!  I am here today to share a sweet birthday card intended for a friend. It features some of the mid-July release from Whimsy Stamps

Isn't it fun and so special.  Perfect for someone who likes to sew or quilt. 

I made this by stamping the Cross-Stitch Heart background stamp.  I put it in my misti and used distress ink to create a rainbow of color, then I stamped it.  Next, I cut it out using the Wavy Rectangle die.  I wanted to back this in black with the same shape, but the next bigger die was too big.  So I traced it on black and cut by hand.  I stamped the elements from Cross-Stitched Sentiments on the front, tacked it down to the black layer and set aside. Next, I folded my black base and trimmed a piece of DP from the Rainbow Paper Pack and adhered it.  I added my wavy stitched layers.  Finally, I added some black hearts and twine.

I hope you like it and thank you for visiting!

Fun and Fabulous

Hey friends!  Happy Tuesday!

I have another fun card today featuring some new stamps from Whimsy Stamps.  This is just a quick post, but I couldn't wait to share. 

Isn't it so fun!?  I shared a card using the Cute and Curvy set yesterday and I LOVE this set.  Because, as I said, not all of us chica's are skinny little things and we deserve to have stamps too!  But, that isn't even the newest product here.  The newest is the lovely Fern Background Stamp.

To make this, I stared with the Fern Background and put it inside my Misti.  I inked it up with Crushed Olive, Twisted Citron and More Mustard Distress Inks.  Then I spritzed some water on it to give it this look.  Next, I stamped my images from Cute and Curvy and colored it with my Copics.  Then I cut her and her pup out and placed them on my background, which I mounted on my white base using foam tape.  Then I stamped my sentiment on yellow and added a black layer behind it.  Lastly, I added these sweet green butterflies.

I know this was a quick post, but hope you like it!

Thanks for visiting.

Tutu Cute!

Happy Sunday!  I was up in my crafty room yesterday and I was playing with the new Cute and Curvy Stamp Set from Whimsy Stamps.  I love this set because not all of us ladies are the skinny types.  There are a lot of skinny girl stamps, but not so many plus size and plus size is beautiful!

Don't you think I have made my case for this cute gal?  And she has spunk too, her fun outfit, pink hair and dressed up pup!

I stamped and colored my images (the dog and gal) with Copics (Y15, Y13, FV2, BV13, C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, E00, E02, RV09, RV25, RV04, RV02) and fussy cut them out.  Then I took my white base and used an edge die with a layer of black and a layer of the Rainbow Paper Pack to set up the stage. Once I put the paper down, I added my stamped images.  Then I stamped the sentiment on black with Versamark and used White Wow Embossing Powder, then I popped it up with foam tape.  Then I took some purple paper and die cut the hearts from the Puppy Paws Die Set and added them to the scene.

Oh, I forgot to mention I added some white highlights as well with my gel pen. 

I hope you think she is cute because I sure do!  I love her sassy self. 

Thanks for visiting!

Hello Wednesday.  Today is one of those days that I just need a little more pep to get through the week.  I have a fun card to share that will hopefully do that. 

Today's card features the new stamp set from Whimsy called Braided.  It is fun and cute and fabulous!  It made me happy to color her hair rainbow. 

To make this card I used a stencil and a bunch of distress inks for the background.  I just left what was on my brush there and I used it.  Then I stamped and colored the hair with my Copics (FV2, V17, V15, V12, RV06, RV04, RV02, YG13, YG11, YG07, YG06, Y15, Y13, Y11, YR23, YR09, YR07, YR04, YR02, B29, B26, B24, B12, B05, B02, B01, B0000).  After I colored it I cut it her hair out and set it aside.  Next, I cut a bit of DP from the Licorice DP Pack and tacked it down with some Doodlebugs Washi Tape.  I stamped the sentiment and then popped up the image using foam tape.  Then I added some black sequins.   

It is a pretty easy card with some big pop!  I think (and hope) that a friend would really like to get this card in the mail.
