Praying For You

Here is what I made for my Whimsy card this week.  I started by stamping a plaid background on a hand stitched rectangle using Get In Line.  I stamped the flowers from Retro Flowers in some of the same colors as the background, and the sentiment is from Happy Mail.

Thanks for stopping by!

Frantic Stamper Mid-May Release

Frantic Stamper's Mid-May release is super fun, it's a superhero theme!  My family loves anything superhero, so this was a really fun release for me.  I made several of my cards suitable for the girly-girl superhero lover of the family.

Here are my cards:
This one uses Simply Super Shield (FRA-DIE-09860) and Super Sayings (FRA-CL-049) along with pink cardstock and pink glitter cardstock!

I used Heroic Symbols (FRA-DIE-09861) in the traditional superhero colors, with Super Sayings again.
Another girly card with Pow Zap Boom (FRA-DIE-09862) and Super Sayings.
Here I used the Nested Stitched Stars (FRA-DIE-09869) all stacked up for a birthday card.
And for my last card I used Star Line (FRA-DIE-09868) in three colors and mix and matched the pieces to create a birthday garland.

Welcome back to day 3, as we review the newest Whimsy release!  New products will be available to purchase at 9am EST today, so go check out all the details on the Whimsy blog and then visit Whimsy Stamps.

I have two cards for you today, this first one uses From a Friend, along with Hand Lettered Encouragement:
I started by watercoloring some lime and turquoise on a watercolor panel, dried it, and stamped the leaves in gray ink and the sentiment in black.

 And here is Punny Messages again, along with Get In Line.
I stamped some stripes on a lime green base, then stamped the whales, colored them, and added a sentiment to a white panel.  That's it, easy cards today!

Clearly Whimsy Stamps May Release, Day 2

Welcome back to day two of the May Clearly Whimsy Release!  We have two more stamp sets and a die set to show you.  All new products will be available for purchase tomorrow (Wednesday) May 11 at 9AM at Whimsy Stamps.  Head over to the Whimsy Blog for all the details, including pictures of the new release (I'm having trouple uploading here).

Up first is a card made with Sweetest Birthday stamp set and Sweetest Birthday Shaker Builder die set:
I built the shaker all out of white cardstock and filled it with some pastel seed beads.  I then layered the cupcake up and adhered it, and finished with the script birthday and complementing sentiment.
And next is Punny Messages:
I stamped lines from Get In Line on a kraft base, then cut an aqua strip and a green strip with Hand Stitched Border dies.  On a white piece, I stamped the mints, then stamped, colored, and cut them from another scrap piece so I could pop them up.  I added the fun sentiment last.
Thanks for stopping by!

Clearly Whimsy May Release, Day 1

Welcome to day one of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps May release!
All new products will be available for purchase on Wednesday, May 11, at 9AM EST.
Head on over to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for all the details!
Today we are showcasing Playful Pups and its Add-on set, From a Friend,
and Hand Stitched Borders. 
Here's what I made:
My card base is kraft, and I cut a piece of blue using Hand Stitched Rectangles, and stamped criss-crossing lines on it.  I set that aside and stamped and cut out my pup, the heart with the paw print, and the sentiment flag.  It says, "I love you more than treats".  Cute, right?  And then I just assembled the whole card.
Next up is From A Friend, a sentiment set with a lovely font and wonderful expressions:
I started by cutting the largest rectangle (Hand Stitched Rectangles) from kraft, then used the Hand Stitched Borders a couple times on one edge.  I adhered that piece to a kraft base.  I cut three hearts (Sketched Elephants dies) from patterned paper, and I stamped the sentiment on a flag cut from more patterned paper.  I layered everything on the card and finished with a few sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!
