Thinking About You

Whimsy Stamps March Release, Day 3

It's the final day of the Whimsy Stamps March release, I hope you've enjoyed the inspiration!

Today I am showing you Shine Bright and Wish Upon A Star.
I started by white embossing the star stamp from Wish Upon a Star on watercolor paper, then layering some distress ink on it before lightly spritzing it with water.  I layered it on a dark blue panel after cutting out my circles for some reverse layering.  I stamped the sentiment from Shine Bright on a white circle and popped it up in the middle.  I added some sparkle to the stars on the sentiment. I adhered the whole panel to a white base.

Whimsy March Release, Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps March release!

Today I am showing you Llama Love.  This cute little guy comes with a whole bunch of accessories and scene-building elements.
I stamped this guy on a panel first, then stamped his blanket and the rest of the scene around him.  I colored everything with copics. I added the sentiment, then adhered the panel to a kraft base with some patterned paper strips.

Whimsy March Release, Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the Whimsy Stamps March Release!

All new releases are available NOW in the Whimsy Store, no waiting to order!


I did combine it with the Brush Script Lower so you can see how they work together.
I stamped the branches (Hand Lettered Encouragement) repeatedly on a white base, and then adhered on the letters to make a wedding card.  I added a bow last.  A super simple but elegant wedding card!

Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow.

Whimsy So Thankful

For this week's Whimsy card, I made this sweet little butterfly thank you card.

I started by using the Butterfly stencil and inking the butterflies twice on a piece of watercolor paper (even though I didn't end up using any water).  I then stamped some bigger detailed butterflies on top (Flight of the Butterflies), along with the chicken wire (Lovely Lavender).  I adhered a strip of patterned paper down the right side of the main panel.  I cut the banner from Many Thanks Cardbuilder die set and stamping the sentiment on it (Autumn Blessings).  I added a few rhinestones, and adhered the banner on the card along with some silver cording.

Whimsy Friend

Hi there!  For my Whimsy card this week, I used Hand Lettered Encouragement.  I inked up the sprigs with Distress Inks, sprayed the stamp lightly with water, then stamped it on watercolor paper twice each time I inked it.  I adhered the sprig panel to a kraft base.  I used the same technique as the sprigs on "friend", cut it out, and popped it up on the main panel.  I white embossed the rest of the sentiment on matching cardstock, adhered the strips, and then used a few Summer Breeze enamel dots to finish the card.
