Let It Snow

It's that time of year around here already, when the snow starts to fly.  We've only had some spitting so far, but no accumulation.  So it's fitting that this week for my Whimsy card I made a snowflake card:

I stamped snowflakes from Snow Flurry in different blues and purples on a white panel, then trimmed it to fit on part of a teal base.  I white-embossed the sentiment on the teal base, then popped up the snowflake panel on it after I tied a bow around the top.  Lastly, I added some clear confetti sequins to some of the snowflake centers.

Thanks for stopping by!

Whimsy Stamps November Release, Day 5

Thanks for coming back for day 5 of the Whimsy Stamps November release.  All products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, November 7.

Today we are showing you sneak peeks of the November Customer Appreciation Set (CAS), Holiday Headlines.

I stamped the sentiment and the coordinating leaves on watercolor paper, and colored the leaves using my Zig clean color brush markers.  I adhered a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of a card base, then popped up the main panel.  I added a few Christmas Cheer enamel dots at the end.

Today I am showing you Leaf Foliage die set #1.


I cut two of each sprig in similar colors and adhered them to a white panel cut using 
Hand-stitched Nested Rectangles.  I cut a black banner using Cardbuilder Many Thanks and adhered Thankful from the Gratitude Word die set. I popped up the word banner over the foliage, then popped up the whole panel on a white card base.

Whimsy Stamps November Release, Day 1


Thanks for joining us for the Whimsy Stamps November release!  All stamps and dies peeked this week will be available for purchase on November 7. 

 It's a smaller release this month, so I only have one thing to show you today.  This stamp set is called Happy Headlines, and the sentiments are a nice medium to large size.


I pulled out Pretty Big Flowers to go along with it:

I stamped the flowers in a circle to make a wreath using many of the flowers, pieces, and outlines in Pretty Big Flowers.  I stamped the sentiment right on top, added a twine bow, and popped up the focal panel on a kraft base.

Birthday Banner


The gray, rainy fall weather has finally arrived, which means my picture is not so great today.  I started by stamping a stitched line (In Stitches), then adding banners.  I stamped the Happy (Happy Everything) and added the die cut birthday (Shaker Builder Sweetest Birthday).  I created the speech bubble, added some sequins, and popped up the focal panel on a pink card base.
Thanks for stopping by, come again soon as the November release kicks off this week!

Hilarious. Just Hilarious.

Hello, I finally got a chance to use the last set I didn't use for the October Whimsy release.  It's called Grumpy Holidays.

Lol, look at this poor guy!
I white-embossed Grumpy on charcoal cardstock, and layered him up with a wonky patterned panel on a white card base.  I stamped the sentiment on more patterned paper before adding some Christmas Cheer enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by!

MFT Rainbow Challenge

I made this card for World Cardmaking Day, which was yesterday.  This is for the MFT Rainbow Challenge.  I die cut a bunch of candles from Interactive Cake Die set in rainbow colors for the focal point,  I used the Happy Birthday Frame to draw in the focus.  I added a strip of gray using the Horizontal Stitched Strips and used a partial sentiment from Twice the Wishes.
I added some Wink of Stella to the flames, which turned them white instead of clear sparkle!
Thanks for stopping by.
