Whimsy Hello

I can't resist the cute little elephants in Sketched Elephants! So this little guy makes another appearance.  I cut him out, colored him, and made him the focal point against a frame and some polka dots. I tucked the large hello word die behind him.

Clearly Whimsy April Release, Last Day

Thanks for coming by this week to see the April Clearly Whimsy release!  
We have one last day of inspiration for you.

I chose to use Baby Animals again, as I know several people who are expecting, 
and now I have several cards ready for the joyous occasion!

I used the bunny this time, and watercolored her. I layered some panels and shapes at different angles, and I love how it turned out. Here's what I used:

Clearly Whimsy April Release, Day 4

It's day 4 of the Clearly Whimsy April release, and we have one set left to show you.  All new products are now available for purchase! 
Whimsy Blog
Whimsy Store

Introducing Hand-Lettered Thoughts:
I started by watercoloring an orange block.  After it dried, I stamped the main sentiment and stars on it.  I stamped the other parts of the sentiment on different colors of cardstock and glued them on.  I put the whole panel on a black base, and added some black pearls.

Clearly Whimsy April Release, Day 3

Welcome back to day three of the Clearly Whimsy April Release!  These new products are now available for purchase, go to the Whimsy Store here.  All info, including how you have a chance to win a prize, is available at the Whimsy Blog.

Today's peak includes Spring Wreath and its matching dies.
I started this card by creating a frame with Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles.  I stamped the wreath in a few colors of green ink, then put the flowers on that were cut and stamped.  The bow is popped up.  The sentiment was stamped under the wreath, and the birthday is die cut as well.  I added a row of pearls, then popped up the frame around everything.
