Whimsy May Release, Day 3

It's the final day of the Whimsy Stamps May release, I hope you've enjoyed all the inspiration!
Go shopping HERE.

Today I am showing you Happy Birthday to You stamp set and Peony Flower die:

I started by cutting 2 of each size of flower layer, then sponging some pink ink on the edges (both sides).  I cut the leaves out once and sponged green ink on it's edges.  I built up the flower by glueing and curling in each layer, starting with the smallest in the center.  I stacked two small dimensionals up, stuck it in the flower center, and added the gem.  I cut a strip of red striped paper and adhered it to the edge of a white card base.  I layered on the gray and blue pieces and added the sentiment.  I glued on my flower and added some enamel dots to finish.

Whimsy Stamps May Release, Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps May release! Sorry for the late post, it's exam week at school and it is ruling me right now.  

Today I am showing Furever In Our Hearts stamp set and Furever Friends die set.
I started by stamping the canvas background (Vintage Backgrounds) twice in light blue ink on a white panel.  I stamped the paw prints in gray on top of that.  I cut out the heart twice, then combined it two have two different colors.  I cut out the FurEver from pink cardstock, and did some masking off to get the rest of the sentiment horizontal (embossed in white).  I laid everything out on my main panel and then adhered it, popping up the heart.  I then popped up the whole main panel on a white base. I added some crystal effects to the paw print last. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Whimsy Stamps May Release, Day 1

It's release time again over at Whimsy Stamps!  The new release is available right now, so you can start shopping!  Head over to the Whimsy Blog for all the details and sneak peeks.

Today I am showing you Hard At Work.
I cut out a white panel using Hand-stitched Rectangles and built my scene.  The axe and the log are fussy cut, and everything was colored with copics. I layered the main panel on a light green piece, and adhered the whole thing to a green base.

Happiest of Happy Birthdays

I made this card two weeks ago and just realized I forgot to post it!  The end of the school year and life in general is about to do me in.  Just keep swimming.....

Anyway, I made a birthday card using Big Balloon Celebrations from Whimsy Stamps.
I stamped the balloons and sentiment on a white panel, then used one of the Pierced Border Trio on all four edges.  I went over the balloons with clear sparkle marker for some shine, then popped up the whole main panel on a white card base.

Whimsy Thanks

Hello, friends!

I made this Thanks card for my Whimsy post this week:

I started by stamping and fussy-cutting the flower (Pretty Big Flowers), then positioned it on a white panel to see where I would stamp the leaves and sprigs.  After I had the greenery stamped, I added the sentiment and some random dots, also from Pretty Big Flowers. Next,I
stamped a mint green strip with Vintage Backgrounds, then mounted it on the white panel.
I added the twine bow, then used a big pop dot to adhere the flower. After I adhered the white panel to a kraft base, I added some copic shading and shimmer to the flower.

Thanks for stopping by!

Whimsy April Release, Day 3

Welcome back to the last day of the April Whimsy release!  All products are available for purchase now at the Whimsy Store.

Today I am showing you Pretty Big Flowers stamp set.  This set contains flower outlines and fillers, plus a few sentiments.

My design was inspired by a card made by Dawn Woleslagle.  I stamped the flowers and their outlines in coordinating inks and a Hand-Stitched Rectangle before adhering it to a white base.  I added some diamond stickles to flower centers for some texture and sparkle.

I hope you've enjoyed this release, head over to the Whimsy blog and Facebook group for more inspiration!
