I colored up this adorable bear for this week's sketch. Thanks for stopping by!

I had a commenter ask about Crystal Effects I've used a lot. Crystal Effects is the Stampin' Up brand of clear gloss in a bottle, but you can find it at your local craft store under different names.

Whimsy October Release, Day 3

Welcome back to the last day of the October Whimsy Stamps release!
Today I am showing you another card I made with Holiday Sweet Treats stamp set and it's companion die set.
I decided to make a steaming hot cup of chocolate, yum!  I stamped, cut, and colored the mug and set it aside.  I stamped lines from Get In Line with gray ink on a white strip, and white lines on a gray piece.  I adhered both of my lined pieces to a white panel, and added the sentiment.  The cup is popped up next to the sentiment, and the whole thing was layered on a gray base.  I added some dots at the end.
Thanks for stopping by, head over to the Whimsy Blog for all the info, and go shopping HERE!

Whimsy October Release, Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the October release for Whimsy Stamps!  Today I am showing you a card I made with the new set, In My Backyard.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and watercolored it.  I embossed the sentiment (included in the set) in black, and adhered the whole thing to a base with some strips of patterned paper.  Finished it off with a twine double bow.

Joyous Christmas

I used Autumn Blessings to make a Christmas card for my Whimsy Stamps post this week. I stamped the wreath base in chocolate, then added some Kraft sprigs to fill it out a bit. I cut and stamped some red berry sprigs to layer on top, then added a bow and button. The sentiment (Joyous Holiday) is embossed in Gold.
Thanks for stopping by!
