Sending Smiles

I pulled out Mom's Layered Flowers from Whimsy Stamps and did a little watercoloring.  I embossed the flower on watercolor paper and used my new Gansai Tambi 36 watercolor set that I found on Amazon for a steal! I still have lots of practicing to do, but I'm having fun with it, and so is my daughter.
The chevron background is white-embossed on kraft.

Friendship Knows No Distance

For my Whimsy card this week, I made this:
I used the large heart die from the Sketched Elephants die set, Basic Backgrounds and Borders, and a bright color combo.

Whimsy Clear Release, Day 2

Welcome back! It's day 2, and that means everything you've seen so far will be available for purchase tomorrow at Whimsy Stamps!  Find all the info here: Whimsy Blog.

Today we are peaking Ocean Journeys, Ocean Journeys Sentiments, and Sentiments Banner dies.

Here are my cards:
I stamped and cut out the sailboat, then paper pieced it using the new paper pad from Whimsy (cool!).  I cut a Hand Stitched Rectangle and stamped the waves, sentiment, and gulls on it before adding the boat.  I popped up the main panel on a same-colored base.
Card #2:
I cut a panel from the new Whimsy paper pad, and then cut a circle out of it.  I adhered the panel to a white base, then stamped the wheel in the opening.  I added the sentiment banner and some circles at the bottom.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but I stamped a stitched line (Get In Line) through the middle of each row. 
Thanks for stopping by, tomorrow's the last day of peaks!
