Whimsy Thanks

Hello, friends!

I made this Thanks card for my Whimsy post this week:

I started by stamping and fussy-cutting the flower (Pretty Big Flowers), then positioned it on a white panel to see where I would stamp the leaves and sprigs.  After I had the greenery stamped, I added the sentiment and some random dots, also from Pretty Big Flowers. Next,I
stamped a mint green strip with Vintage Backgrounds, then mounted it on the white panel.
I added the twine bow, then used a big pop dot to adhere the flower. After I adhered the white panel to a kraft base, I added some copic shading and shimmer to the flower.

Whimsy April Release, Day 3

Welcome back to the last day of the April Whimsy release!  All products are available for purchase now at the Whimsy Store.

Today I am showing you Pretty Big Flowers stamp set.  This set contains flower outlines and fillers, plus a few sentiments.

My design was inspired by a card made by Dawn Woleslagle.  I stamped the flowers and their outlines in coordinating inks and a Hand-Stitched Rectangle before adhering it to a white base.  I added some diamond stickles to flower centers for some texture and sparkle.

I hope you've enjoyed this release, head over to the Whimsy blog and Facebook group for more inspiration!

Whimsy April Release, Day 2

Welcome back for another day of inspiration from the April Whimsy Stamps release.

Everything is already available for purchase at the Whimsy Store, and you can see what the rest of the team has made by going to the Whimsy blog or Facebook page.

Today I used Deepest Sympathy, a really lovely stamp set of all sentiments. There is a companion word die set as well.  

I started by cutting a white Hand-Stitched Rectangle and stamping the wreath from Autumn Blessings in kraft ink on it.  I stamped and cut out the flowers and leaves and adhered them to the wreath.  The sentiment, from Deepest Sympathy, was stamped in dark brown ink.  I tied a double twine bow around the end of the panel before popping it up on a light blue card base.  I added white enamel dots (from Christmas Cheer) to the flower centers.

Whimsy April Release, Day 1

Welcome to day one of the Whimsy Stamps April Release!

Everything is already available for purchase, so you don't have to wait to get what you like!
You will find more inspiration at the Whimsy Blog and Facebook Group page.

Today I am showing you the new Magical Birthday Wishes stamp set and Birthday Wishes and Magical word die set.

I cut a panel using Hand-Stitched Rectangles dies and stamped a row of candles (Happy Everything) in black across the top. I colored in the white part of the striped candles with a gray copic.  I stamped the flames in coral and pink.  I die cut a Bold Banner and "magical" from the same green cardstock, but made "magical" stand out by covering it with Spectrum clear sparkle pen.  I stamped the sentiment (also from Magical Birthday Wishes in coral ink on a pink cardstock rectangle.  I laid all my pieces on the candle panel to space out where the Birthday Wishes should go, then stamped that in gray ink.  I adhered all the pieces on the candle panel, then popped that panel up on a white base.  I added diamond stickles to the flames last.

Thanks for stopping by!

Whimsy Thanks

I pulled out some patterned paper and the Whimsy large word thanks die and made a quick card. I'm really trying to just use my paper, instead of "saving" it for the perfect project.

You Are Amazing

For my Whimsy card this week, I combined Wish Upon A Star and You Are. I dry embossed the circle from Slip n Slide, masked it, then stamped the stars around it.
