Just a Note

Here's a sweet little card I made with my Whimsy stamps this week.

I die cut a heart and lightly traced it with a pencil on white cardstock. The little rose is from Tea Time Additions, and I stamped it on my heart outline.  I colored the roses with copics and added some star dust stickles for some sparkle.  The sentiment is from Smarty Pants, and a bow/button treatment finishes it off.

The Cutting Edge Challenge #5

I decided to play along with a new challenge blog out there, The Cutting Edge. It's all about using dies! 
Here is the inspiration photo for this week:
 
And here is what I made:
The "love" was cut three times and stacked up for dimension. I alternated pink stripes, adhered them together and diecut the heart.

Reverse Confetti July Color Challenge


It's been awhile since I played along with any RC challenge, so this weekend I decided to make time.
The colors for this month's challenge were lime, aqua, and coral. I used So Stripey a few times and the sentiment is masked/selectively inked to make it work here. The background tag is cut from vellum.

MFT July Color Palette Challenge


This month's colors are banana split, tangy orange, sno cone, and blu raspberry. I put a strip of blu raspberry underneath my peekaboo dots and also as shadow on the sentiment.

A Cup of Tea


For this week's Whimsy card, I used Time for Tea and it's Additions. I paper pieced the pot, cup and flower with some fun paper. The sentiment is white-embossed on black, and I added some pearls as steam bubbles.

You're A Star

It's Clearly Whimsy time!  
This week I took School Spirit and Smarty Pants and went a different direction with them.  
I made the glam sunglasses by cutting them from coral cardstock and adding lenses. 
Two gold stars make them very fashionable!  I layered them on a star cut from vellum
on top of the sentiment panel.

One Cup

Happy Tuesday!  It's a little bit crazy around here, why does everything seem to hit at once? Stamping is my sanity saver, so I escaped the other day and went to work with some Clearly Whimsy Stamps.

I stamped four cups on a scrap, then colored them with copics. I used the colorless blender to make some patterns on them, than cut them out. I cut little slits along the rims in the bottom three so they would stack. After the card was assembled, I used frosted lace stickles on the cup.

I've been in love with this superhero girl since she was released, so I'm thrilled to have her in my stash finally!  I colored her up for a friend of mine who's going through some health struggles.
Thanks for stopping by!

Yay!



Did you see this? I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining the Whimsy Stamps CWS team for the next term, starting in August!  Whoo hoo, I can't wait to share more cards with you using these fabulous stamps!
