Thanks, Teacher

What teacher wouldn't like to get this card from a student, with it's cute little crayon bouquet?

I stamped the sentiment, from Thanks a Million and School Spirit, on a white panel and rounded the corners. I stamped the crayons (Smarty Pants) in several colors on a scrap, colored in the centers, cut them out, and tied them together.  I adhered the crayon bouquet to the card front with dimensionals.

All stamps are available from Whimsy Stamps, under the Clearly Whimsy line.

I used several elements from a Blueprints set (my first one!), and sponged the background with the scallops stencil (also my first one!) I love the stencil, so I will be adding more to my collection at some point.

Thanks For Your Kindness

I love the look of ombré, so I thought I'd create some using the stripes from Basic Backgrounds & Borders.  Each color family was stamped in a darker and lighter shade, with the stripes offset a little.

I ran a strip of purple through my machine twice with the straight stitch edge die. I cut "thanks" three times, stacking them up. I added the rest of the sentiment (from Thanks a Million) and a Say What? speech bubble with a glittery purple heart. 

All these products can be found on the Whimsy Stamps site.

You're a Gem

I made a bold card using my Clearly Whimsy stash this week. RED!

I stamped the stripes (love!) from Basic Borders & Backgrounds in red ink on a lighter red base. The gem from Thanks a Million was stamped on scrap, colored, cut out, and popped up on the main panel. I added the thanks word die cut twice and stacked up. The rest of the sentiment and the sparkles were stamped in gray. I used the straight stitched border on the edge of the panel, and last of all I added some stickles to the sparkles and crystal effects to the gem.

Just a note for this week's sketch!  I used the largest Precious Polaroids die and stamped some sweet flowers on the insert.

Lots of Happy

Hello and welcome to another Clearly Whimsy Stamps card!

Today I used the large Happy word die cut in some fun happy colors. 

I cut them twice and stacked them up for stability and dimension. 

"Birthday" is from Say What, and the stars are from Smarty Pants. I stamped the stripes (from Basic Backgrounds and Borders) on the base.

I went bold with the colors for this week's sketch. I sponged the tips of the flowers for some depth.
