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.

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!

Whimsy Stamps October Release Day!

Hello!  New products from the October release are now available at Whimsy Stamps.  Happy shopping!

I used Angel Blessing for this card.  I stamped her twice, once on white and once on patterned paper, and cut her out.  I colored her up and put wink of stella on her wings.
I cut two rectangles, one from white and one from patterned paper, and layered them up on a white base.  Next, I white-embossed the sentiment on more patterned paper, and adhered it and the angel to the card.

Whimsy October Release Day 4

Welcome to day 4 of the Whimsy Stamps October release!  Everything new will be available for purchase on October 7. 

I didn't get my package until a few days ago, so I'm jumping in late.  Today I am showing a sneak peek of a set called Peace, Love, and Joy.  I also used Snow Flurries, which was peeked a few days ago:

I stamped a script background and then added Snow Flurries in two color of blue ink and the long branch from Peace, Love, and Joy in green.  I white-embossed the dove, banner with sentiment, and short branch on colored cardstock and cut them out.  I adhered all my pieces on the panel, stamped the Peace, then adhered the whole panel to a purple base.  I added some sequins last.

Thinking About You

I finally had some time to stamp today, so I made my weekly Whimsy Stamps card:

I created the plaid part of the background on a white panel using Get In Line and three different colors of green ink.  I cut out the coffee cup (Coffee Cup die set) and assembled it.  I stamped the sentiment (Coffee Break), tied a string around the panel, and adhered it to a green base.  I popped up the coffee cup, added some steam and some jewels.

Thankful for You

Happy Saturday, hope you are having a great weekend! 

I made this card this week (all supplies Whimsy):

I cut out a white panel using Hand-stitched Rectangles dies, and then stamped the bigger circles (Polka Dot Fun) in pattern and let it dry for a minute.  I went back and stamped the smaller circles in the same colors on top of the bigger circles.  I die cut Thankful and did some masking and piecing with the rest of the sentiment using From a Friend.  I tied some white thread around the panel and popped up the whole thing on a white card base.

Whimsy September Release, Day 4

We're back for day four of the Whimsy Stamps September release.  Today we have sneak peeks for Abstract Christmas, Oh What Fun stamps and dies, and Winter Wonderland word dies.

I used Abstract Christmas to make this card:

I black-embossed the tree on watercolor paper and used my zig clean color brushes to color it.  I added wink of stella on top of the color, and that made it shiny and opaque.  I added some clear sequins to some of the larger circles.  I layered it up on a black panel with the sentiment white-embossed along the edge, and put the whole thing on a white card base that I cut down by about a half inch.

Next I used Oh What Fun to make this:

I stamped the tree three times on a white rectangle, colored them with copics, and added enamel dots as the ornaments.  I stamped a green card base with stripes from Get In Line, then twirled some twine on it and popped up the tree layer over that.
